    Hi everyone! I stumbled upon this game on a list of top open-source games that are out right now, and I can see why!  I am drawn in by the relaxed but non-ambiguous gameplay and questing, and also by how active and passionate you developers are.  Now for the question/request:  I would like to start contributing in some way, I noticed some of this is java based and I have a good amount of experience in that area.  Where would be a good place to start?  Thanks in advance everyone!

    Hi,

    a good start could be to get a development enviroment on your computer. We have documentated that in our wiki at http://stendhalgame.org/wiki/Configure_a_development_environment_(IDE). As most of our developers use Eclipse as their IDE, I'd recommend also using it.

    If you are looking for things to do, you can have a look into our trackers for features or bugs here on sourceforge. We also have a wiki page that contains some bits of information what should be done at the moment: http://stendhalgame.org/wiki/StendhalOpenTasks

    If you've found something you'd be interested to contribute to our project, it would be a good idea to come to our IRC channel #arianne on freenode (for example via http://stendhalgame.org/chat/) to discuss your ideas etc with us.

    You could hand over your finished pieces of work as a patch on our patches tracker here on sourceforge. How to create a patch is described at http://stendhalgame.org/wiki/How_To_Create_Patch_For_Stendhal, if you need assistance with that.

    Greetings

    Hi, I'll just use "thekroge"s post to introduce myself as well.
    I am a student in 2nd year and for a coursework assignment we have to find a project
    and start getting into proper development. I basically stumbled upon Arianne RPG as well
    and since I've always wanted to work in game development I thought this would be a good start :)
    I have some experience with Java, a bit of C++ and over the summer I wrote tutorials for lua (a scripting language)
    so I hope I can be of some help ;)

    Greetings,
    Rabbit
