i've been playing for a while and haven't won yet!
it's addictive though.. i think it's even funner if you don't tell people the rules :)
you've got such a great touch with user interfaces.. sounds are perfect, you can almost feel the warmth of the wood and year the sounds of the dice as if you were right there.

Howdy Mouser!  (sorry for the slow reply)

Thank you kind sir! Getting there with my games package, an update with the compiler I use has caused a slight setback due to a change in bitmap handling, but I'm getting there! =)

Seems like the link for those games on your site is dead.

Someone please email them to me!

Howdy Nighted!

Yes for just a little while the link is inactive... I'm smack dab in the middle of creating a common GUI'd menu for several of the games. Will be ready in a few weeks (knock on wood). Please accept this game during the wait =)

Thanks for the nice comments ... no I haven't heard of Nine Morris Men ... how does that work?

I have found this web version but there don't seem to be any rules ....

Once again my reply is delayed (work is very trying these days). Here is some history as well as rules.

Thanks for your patience Carol, I'm slow but steady =)

Hi Carol, very nice to meet you! Please excuse my delayed reply. (My work entails time out of town every now and again, and I usally take no computer along simply to clear my mind).

'Towers of Hanoi'

Sure enough, this puzzle is in the works down the road as well. I really enjoyed the example you posted, most especially the portion with the recursive function. I've at least two games now that employ recursive routines (8 Queens and another entitled PileUp).

And I see that you're a virtual idea machine yourself =) I've read several of your posts and without exception, I find something noteworthy therein. Lots of brain food, many thanks.

Nim

Another great game! Have you ever heard of Nine Men's Morris? I hope to code that little pup as well.

Later on,
Mike

Howdy lanux.

why don't you pm the answer... ;-)

Well, how about a clue instead buddy? Do you enjoy spelling? Don't give up - Crack on!

well, i'm not a coder but i do dabble in scripting & macros due to the nature of my work, which is systems maintenance...

Six in one hand, 1/2 dozen in the next it's all good I'd say =) What I'm trying to convey is that the only real difference here is that; some languages are interpreted while others are compiled. No sweat. Besides the best tool for a given task is the thing no? Why write a program if a batch file comprising only 'dir *.*' worked as well?

btw, if you need ideas take a look here...

Now this site is bursting with ideas! Many thanks lanux, appreciate it.

Later on,
Mike

Hey-hey mouser!

Re: you got any plans for new games/puzzles?

Yeppers, sure enough, putting the final bit of polish on 10+ little peanut apps shown here:

http://fuzzbox.hyper...puzzles/puzzles.html

Presently building a menu'd front end for the whole she-bang.

Re: each block would be like an animal...

I like the idea of animals interspersed within a Tetris context, that bears some thought =) 'Cryptozooology' hmm...

Has anyone tried VCHM (Visual CHM)? Roundabout $20.00 in price, and extremely simple to use, or at least I thought so. The folks whom produce this app reside in Asia, and I could not seem to get to their site as of the date I post this, which hopefully doesn't make this post meaningless =/

At any rate, here's another URL: http://www.wekasoft.com/vchm/

Howdy lanux.

Chuckle, just study it awhile, I wont divulge anymore than that.

So, what types of projects do you enjoy coding?

Howdy lanux. Interesting. I learnt my variant from my grandfather, he called the game pennies and nickels. I've seen it included with pegboard type games as well. Nothing new under the sun it would seem. Thanks for sharing.

Hi mouser.

Well... I don't know what to say, except thank you kind sir =) I just jumped in with both feet. The smooth feel you're wondering about is likely due too the use of asynchronous timers that fire at differing intervals. The overlap tends to create a umm... 'liquid' feel in some cases. Me? Just a weekend warrior with respect to coding projects.

Later on,
Mike

we'd love it if you posted some links to a game or puzzle program that you might have written!!  :up:

Howdy mouser.

Done! Here's the URL providing a download featuring four, nice and simple puzzles.
