Firstly. thank you for your soft answer toward my frustration. I hope you understand that there are lots of ways to read text and sometimes we read it with the tone that we either want, fear, expect, or even based upon our own mood at the moment.
So, in answer to your question of which I want. You are confused because I have not declared which. That is a question that you care about because you know what it involves. I, on the other hand, do not care about it because it is beyond my knowledge. I just want it to work. If it works within Roll20, then great. If it works in conjunction with Roll20, that is great, too. How is not important to me. Beggars cannot wisely be choosers. If someone desires to help me, but not quite the way I would prefer, that is still far better than no one helping me in exactly the way I prefer.
From a video conference I had with Nolan (one of the lead Roll20 people) I got the impression that Roll20 is intended to be either open source or close to it. They invite and encourage people to tweak and improve things for personal use. The idea is that once a tweak or feature is made, it will hopefully be shared with the community (if applicable to other games/players) to help make everyone's experience better. I kept asking him if money would help if I could raise some. He kept replying that money would not help to have them produce features for me. They don't cater to one game or another (although I am not sure how they are not catering to D&D to some degree with all the modules the release for it). He said that I needed to find someone who could code the features I wanted and maybe money could help me that way, if I needed to pay that person. He kept seeming like I should be able to find Roll20 community members who would want to do that.
That was your answer, the rest is just my own rant, so feel free to ignore it if you don't feel like reading it.
Please keep in mind that I am simply a designer. I know how to make games, tweak games, keep them fun and not just simply make a lame Sunday School substitute or a Christianized, subpar D&D clone. This I have done because it flows naturally from me. My wife commented just yesterday that it is interesting to her how for me it seems that making the game is even more fun that playing it. It is true. Playing and especially Hosting (DMing) is work, but creating and tweaking is pure bliss for me.
Now, one thing I am not is a business man. I am learning to be more of one, but I am not a driven person who can make anything happen through sheer force of will and determination.
Another thing I am not is a programmer/coder. As stated before, I just don't know this stuff.
So, if you are a coder and you know the best way to do something, then go for it. I receive it.
Ideally, Nolan may be right that I should be able to find someone in the Roll20 community to help, but my game has several things going against it. I am an unknown person. Worse, though, my game is Christian. There are plenty of people who want to play a Christian game, but they are afraid. Not so much afraid of peer opinions, but afraid they will connect themselves with it and it will suck. Predominantly Christian games either suck as a game, or aren't really Christian games at all. There a lot of reasons for that, but that would be a whole other posting topic, so I will let that statement stand on it's own.
So, I tried reaching out on Roll20's forums. I got a few "I would like to play your game" responses, but no offers to help with what I needed. So, I branched out to here. I really think that people won't offer to help until they can feel safe that the game doesn't suck. Nobody wants to commit themselves to help with something that turns out to be lame and then they either feel guilty for backing out or keep helping out of guilt/obligation and hating themselves for it. I understand that. My conundrum is that:
I can't convince people it doesn't suck until they have experienced it not sucking.
I can't get people to experience it not sucking in an online setting until I make it smooth enough to give a true picture while playing online.
I can't make it smooth enough without recruiting people to help make it smooth.
I can't recruit people to to help make it smooth without convincing them it doesn't suck so they feel safe helping.
I am pretty much just throwing out a hail mary hoping someone such as yourself will feel adventurous or inspired and break the cycle.
