  • Games?

    I've done a quick concept for a tic tac toe game... Something to kill 30 seconds while the wife runs into co-fair or something.

    Still concept at this point, but it works!

    I'm starting this not as a log for the plugin, but what other little waste 30 seconds games are there you guys want? I'm thinking connect4, hangman, checkers. Maybe I might just make 1 plugin where you can select from a variety.

    P.S. Don't knock the graphics - hand-drawn mspaint for the suck!

      +1 What he said! TIC-TAC-TOE looks good as hand-drawn X's and O's

      These simple classic games are just the kind of thing the kids like on long-ish drives. My grandkids like connect4 and hangman for sure. Make it multi-zone friendly and you have a big winner. Kid in the front can play kid in the back.

        Great concept!

        Here's a thought: Since we support multiple screens we can also support multiple users... What about programming this so one user pr screen and set it up so that they can play against each other. Should be interesting for the kids in the rear!

          About making it multi-screen friendly, that shouldn't mess up when someone has different zones setup? I don't test with zones but I do have 3 screen's hooked up so I can test it for the most part. Hmm, onto concept coding that .

          Keep suggestions coming please!

            It shouldn't mess anythin up. Just add instances for each screen.

              Or just clone the display to each screen. Super simple.

                Well, you guys asked/commented, so here it is a quick code mockup of my touchscreen playing against my laptop !!!!!!!!!!!

                The code is soooo ugly but it's working. Set up dynamically for any amount of screens and you can choose what screen to play against as long as it's not already playing in a game. Pretty slick stuff!

                Grrr... sorry for crappy glare .

                  NICE! Really shows off the concept of multiple screens! Great work!

                    Ooooo. Nice. Can't wait until it's ready! If you pick the screen you are already on, would that make it two player on one screen?

                      Not at the moment... I was thinking of having 3 options on the main tic tac toe screen: 1 player, 2 player, or multi-screen. Pretty self explanatory.

                      The multi-screen stuff is pretty thrown together, not polished, buttons everywhere, buggy as all hell but the core stuff is there! 2 player mode hasn't even been started yet, as I figure if I can get the multi-screen stuff done, 2 player mode will be an absolute breeze!

                      BTW, does anyone know how to take screenshots (prt scr's) of non-primary monitors? That would work better than my digital camera. Hang in there, I might even be able to get out an early dll this weekend if people would like to play around and give feedback and bug test with me.

                        I just use win7's snipping tool.

                          I use Print Screen. When I paste it into Paint, they are all there in one big snapshot, just have to scroll down/over depending on your layout.

                            Never knew print screen did that and first time using snippet tool - thanks guys!

                            I'm just gonna leave 1 last screen here that displays all 3 screens re-sized into 1 image, hope it doesn't look squished.

                            Left = screen1, right=screen2, middle-bottom=screen3 (shows how the other games look when others are looking/playing)

                            Edit - Just about fixed up a total of 25-35ish annoying bugs, def. playable at this point!
