I have came up for a great idea for a homebrew office suite. It will be able to edit .docx .pdf .doc .rtf .txt .ppt .pptx .wot .wos .wop .wod. .wot stands for WiiOffice Text document. .wos stands for WiiOffice Spreadsheet. .wop stands for WiiOffice Presentation. .wod stands for WiiOffice Database. This is going to be an open-source project. It will have light formatting tools and not use the Wii's system memory. If some people post back, I will set up a github repitory.

Have much experience coding? Because an Office suite is going to be a HUGE task.

And would it not make more sense to use OpenDocument standard formats, rather than creating another format that will ONLY work with a Wii based Office suite?

Finally, has it occured to you that it takes a LOT longer to type using the on screen keyboard, and if you were plugging in a USB keyboard, you may as well just use a computer (IMO)? Also, you could probably already run LibreOffice via Wii Linux.

I do not have any experience with coding. As for the OpenDocument, I think that that would be a better idea. It would be a basic office suite because the wii has a weak proccessor and little ram. It would have some formatting but not much. I am also thinking of setting up a wii system menu clone that this will hook into. All the information about that will be on its topic.

I don't see this happening. You don't have any experience coding so who's going to code it?

I need someone to help code this project. I would like to know C++ but right now, i would like to have someone help code this project.

"help code"? You don't know how to code. This person would be doing ALL the coding themselves.

How does that work? I thought the first thing required for a Programming Project was to be able to program.
And I think it would be pointless starting a project the size of making a new Office suite, for a game console, where there is no use for it...
Develop something that people want to have on a game console, maybe a game engine? yes very cliche, but still a very fun coding project to accomplish...

I'm reasearching Graphical Programming, and I'm going to try my first attempt at building a game engine - it shall be called OrBit2D :D

Start small.

A 2D rendering system is still needing in a 3D game engine, so hopefully i will make it OrBit3D :D
