One problem I see here is trying to explain the shapes to a blind gamer. I have no problems with experimentation, but it's still something to keep in mind for the average gamer.

The way I am thinking right now, the right hand would be used to draw the combination shape, such as a rainbow shape for a roundhouse kick. The left would be used to modify the combination. So if you did a roundhouse combo with right control, then hit down on left, it would do a foot sweep, up on left would kick towards head, etc.
 It could be done with one of the following controller setups:
1. Game pad with analog sticks. Draw the rainbow with right stick, hold down on left. 2. Wii controllers, draw rainbow with right, pull down on nunchuck with left. 3. Mouse and keyboard. Draw shape with mouse, press d key to modify down. D would be down, e up, s left and f right. Notice this leaves no room for keyboard only input. I realize I could allow the keyboard user to draw a rainbow shape with j i l. but this is way too easy to do compared to what the users of other controllers would have to pull off, and not fair to the non keyboard folks out there.
 Thoughts?

Che, your plans on the wii mote actions is far more complicated than I thought. Now I understand why is it that is difficult to translate them into key strokes. In fact, the mouse alone wouldn't be sufficient to do all those I think. Game controllers is the way to go. I hope you won't make it like wii boxing which is totally motion bassed. You know, we have 12 hours differences. If it is like wii boxing, I might have to exercise and sweat at 2 3 am over here. hahaha! Maybe I played mortal kombat a lot and got used to the way it works, I personally prefer a combination of both. What they does is, punch kick combos are done by pressing the d pad in a specific sequence whereas special power moves are pulled out by swinging the wii remote. Fatalities are done by swinging both the wii remote and nunchuck. I still can't constantly excicute the fatalities right yet.

Ok, I am thinking very far ahead now, but consider this. the features of blood money already sounds as good as the mainstream fighting games. If it goes well, you might want to explore the possibility of hiring someone to add in graphics and make it the first title to be converted from accessible game for the blind to a mainstream game.

   Hi all,
For now the working title of the online fighting game is Blood Money. This will probably change, but we need something to call it instead of Blind Adrenaline's online fighting game, hahaa. And yes, I know there was a game in the eighties called Blood Money, one of the better shoot 'em ups I ever played in fact. Anyhow, maybe this time the thread won't get hijacked by those to inconsiderate to change the subject line when they change the topic.
   Back to the game:
Kel asked about the Wii controllers. Yes, from my research, we should have full access to the Wii remotes, including force feedback, sending audio to the remote itself and so forth, which should be an amazing way to interface with this and future games from Blind Adrenaline. When you get ready to do a roundhouse kick, you'll have to pull the nunchuck to you, while ripping the main controller in a rainbow shape at the same time, pull both controllers to your chest to block, etc. The possibilities are endless. It looks like using XNA will also allow me to include the use of the XBox controllers, which are amazing little devices, with two analog buttons on the front, analog sticks on the top and force feedback as well. In my opinion, these are the best non motion sensitive controllers out there, and being able to use them with accessible games will be awesome. Steady had some good ideas regarding tournament fighting, and it would be interesting to gang fight, so you would have two or three people trying to take out another two or three. This would add a whole new dimension to the game, but executing this would be tricky for sure. I'd like to do it, but we'll have to see how it goes as the game matures. Did some latency testing today, and everything is looking good, at least in the continental united states, I haven't done any testing over seas yet, but we'll be doing that soon. If you have any comments and suggestions for Blood Money, let me know, I am outlining everything over the next few weeks, and I'd like to get your input before coding starts so we make this the best fighting game out there.
   Later,
   Che
