Need Video Game Programmer. 10 YEAR OLD GAME

I'm looking for developers who can look into modifying a 10 year old FPS, currently there is a 'made up' game type within the game called Razorball.

I want to take this a step further and include a few additions to the game.
These additions include: making the characters slightly faster, giving characters the ability to drop the 'ball' once it's been picked up (it's picked up by running over it), currently the game does not allow for the flag to be dropped.

Currently, if you edit game files and play through the original game developers system (Novalogic), since the majority of edits are server sided, any edits client side of server side things result in being removed from the server.
All we can offer is the game files, many files which are packed into a PFF file which can be extracted.

If anyone believes this to be within the realms of their potential, obvious we will be willing to pay and will be there to assist with any non-coding issues.

For more information please contact me at justinmoats@live.com

Why can you not do it? Also is this game in the public domain? If not then somebody can not just port it without the Publishers permission (Abuse for example)

And you are asking this on a idevice forum why? Anyways I doubt anyone here wants to work on making a mod for a PC game which we won't be payed (it is illegal to be payed for making a mod a game) for and probably very few people would play this mod as the game itself has a very small user-base now. Again why don't you do it yourself.
