I wanna give a programmer my code and $10-$50 and say "make the zombies stop bouncing" and just have that be the end of it, and go back to coding my game myself. Where can I go to make my dream a reality?

Programmers, especially professional ones, usually work for a tad bit more than that. And by tad bit, I mean in the hundreds. Smiley

Since I'm 17 but with a lot of experience, I'd do it for $50 an hour. Grin

I'm tempted! I'll even get into a bidding war with r4king (within limits).

But if I made changes to your code, you would be further away from it and the possibility of creating new and more insidious errors increases considerably.

On the up side, your debugging problem is very likely an opportunity to learn something quite important. The nice thing about errors is that when you find and fix them (1) you learn something that will stick, (2) what you learn is guaranteed relevant--even more so than a "textbook" question or homework assignment.

I was even paid by $100 for making a web-app which almost touch enterprise area. I must be the kindest human in earth.

Is this really apply to only "one" task of debug?
