    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 .

    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?
