MIPS coder needed for simple project (WILL PAYPAL $175)
must run in QTSpim

Deadline: July 27th at 11:59 PM EASTERN

$175 paypal (or however you'd like to complete the transaction) will be instantly paid out upon transfer of the completed project

if interested i'll email you the complete PDF file, but i'll post most of the instructions below

if interested please email me at LJaySH@yahoo.com or skype: FritzLn

----------

I'm looking for someone proficient in MIPS that would be able to code a simple vehicle simulator project:

MIPS program that implements a car simulator. The simulator
will maintain and display its current state and respond to the user’s input after each user command.

The simulator willl support the following:

Help
- Key ‘h’
- Prints out a message showing the available commands

Accelerate
- Key ‘a’
- Increases speed by 2 meters per second

Decelerate
- Key ‘d’
- Decrease speed by 2 meters per second

Add Passenger
- Key ‘p’
- Increase the number of passengers in the car by one
- Can only do this when fully stopped

Remove Passenger
- Key ‘r’
- Decrease the number of passengers in the car by one
- Can only do this when fully stopped

Toggle Wipers
- Key ‘w’
- Toggles wipers between on state and off state

Increase Brightness
- Key ‘l’
- Brighten the headlights on the car

Decrease Brightness
- Key ‘d’
- Dim the headlights on the car

Turn Car
- Key ‘t’
- Prepare car for turning
- Disallows all inputs other than the ones specified below

Turn Right
- Key ‘r’
- Turns the car 90 degrees to the right, e.g. north->east
- Can only do this after using the turn car command

Turn Left
- Key ‘l’
- Turns the car 90 degrees to the left, e.g. north->west
- Can only do this after using the turn car command

Cancel Turn
- Key ‘q’
- Aborts turn
- Can only do this after using the turn car command

The simulator needs the following states:

Speed in meters per second
- Floating Point
- Default Value: 0.0
- Min Value: 0.0
- Max Value: 100.0

Total distance traveled in meters
- Floating Point
- Default Value: 0.0
- Min Value: 0.0

Current direction facing
- String Value
- Default Value: north
- Possible Values: north, south, east, west

Number of passengers
- Integer Value
- Default Value: 0
- Min Value: 0
- Max Value: 3
- The driver isn’t a passenger and doesn’t count towards this

Wiper State
- Integer Value
- Default Value: 0
- Min Value: 0
- Max Value: 1
- 0 = Off, 1 = On

Headlight Brightness
- Integer Value
- Default Value: 0
- Min Value: 0
- Max Value: 2
- 0 = Off, 1 = Dim, 2 = Bright

-----

a skeleton .asm file will be provided with interrupt handlers

Thank you

If you are serious about this then I suggest you make your specifications much less vague. Putting things like "etc." are open to massive interpretation and can lead to large communication problems.

i have a detailed PDF with very specific instructions but i didn't want to post them all.

i am VERY serious. willing to pay $175 now and i'm updating the original thread with more specifics.

You make more than 175 bucks an hour? I'm in the wrong business...

Back to the topic, is somebody really willing to pay 175 bucks for somebody to do his homework? You're only cheating yourself guy. You could have a lot of fun doing this. Or change your major to psychology or something like that.

i don't understand why anyone would post here just to tell someone how much money they make in an hour and that they won't do it. why even respond?

and where does this say anything about homework? why are you on your moral high horse? you kno absolutely nothing about me

i've never found it so hard to get someone to take my money. this is incredible. it's either someone who makes great money taking time out of their busy day to say no, or to do it myself

or it's the morality police

i thought this was the projects forum. i'm glad everyone's life is so perfect they don't need money

this is really funny.

Do a google search for "mips forum assembly", and you'll probably find places where more MIPS programmers frequent. Honestly, this is the first MIPS question I've ever seen posted here.

So, I feel the nonsensical replies are really relating to some wonderment of your situation, without asking the obvious questions. Why do you want this work done? How does one find themselves in your situation? I.E. using an archaic language to code an esoteric task.

My creative mind could concoct a story about how I'm working on an embedded design, with a processor tightly bound to the MIPS architecture (cheapest to license, or whatever). Some automotive AI or GPS thingie, ... but why a simulator? Does it simplify testing perhaps?

Anyhow, good luck on your search.

p.s. If this was homework then you probably don't want to ask in a place where MIPS coders actually frequent - that would give away the game too easily. Yet, maybe the task was chosen to betray the intent, too. Wink

I'd help you but I don't know MIPS, or police morals.

Why is MIPS archaic? They sell quite a few hundred million devices a year you know Razz

But he is not asking for MIPS assembly, he's asking for a MIPS assembly program targeting a simulator which is why this looks/smells/tastes like chicken. Yeah, it's chicken! Laughing

To me, archaic in it's lack of expressiveness. Or rather that's the impression I've always had of RISC with MIPS at the extreme end of that spectrum. The more pure RISC an architecture the less of a need to program in assembly language there is, imho. Hence my never delving too deeply into learning any of them, and the ignorance of my comments. I don't really know - it's more how I feel about it.

Seems my story has more weight than I imagined. Laughing

Oh I don't know. I think a guy who builds a house out of precut materials doesn't have nearly the skill of a guy who can build one out of a stack of 2x4s Wink I guess it all depends whether the journey is your destination or whether the destination is your destination. But taking your view to the logical extreme there is really no point in coding in assembly at all since DSLs are more expressive!

But I code in assembly for fun. Wink I have fun with Turing machines sometimes, so maybe I've been too harsh.

You don't know what fun is until you write a gui app in brainf**k Wink

You'd be better off writing an article for a magazine if you want a once off sum of money in that range.
