Yeah, it's like that all the time in Uni. I always get stuck with at least one person who has absolutely no motivation and refuses to contribute anything worthwhile.

Although I would assume most people here have hardcore aspirations, so motivation wouldn't be the worst problems; coordination and time management could be.

If HagNasty wants to coordinate the project, then sure.

Education: Computer Science (2nd Year)
Language: Java, a little C++, a little C#.
API: Java 2.0, Java 2D, XNA Framework

I've not attempted any 3D work at all for DirectX or OpenGL besides the "Load a 3D Model" tutorial in XNA. However, I am a fast learner. I've written a couple of algorithms from scratch including basic quad-tree-partition circle-circle collision detection, text parsing, 2D animation, etc. Mostly for applet based 2D arcade games.

What about the Microsoft XNA framework for 360/PC?

I use MSN:

An IRC channel or bulletin board might be useful, depending on where we all live (I'm UK).
