Title: August 11, 2000
Post by: Nao on August 11, 2000, 00:00:00
Hi ! For those who were wondering what's up with the new mini-game I've been working on, well, I forgot to tell you. I stopped developing it rather early (although most of the code is done and works well), because I've been unable (as stupid as it may seem) to figure out a way to put seven games (with their screenshot) inside the small 640x480 window that serves as the game selector. I don't want to enlarge the window and I'd really like to have all the screenshots at the same time on the screen... Anyway. Of course I could reduce them but I'm not sure about this. Any ideas ? The good news is that I'm now working on the online gaming option ! It will be exclusively for the current Two Players game for now. I intend, however, to add more playing modes and so on. Also, I've implemented the particle engine on Rivers, Clicks and Slider, and I've added the good ol' Background Cube mode from v10.21. I'm thinking of releasing this version (without the online gaming support) as v12.52 in a few days. I'm not sure yet, though. I expect to have a beta (or final) version of the online gaming part available by the end of the month, but I'm not sure if you want to wait for the new features. Again : any ideas ?  PS : I've added two more polls about the Online gaming. I wanted to add a third one about the game types you'd like to play (quick turns, time-limited turns, etc), but I'll try to implement them all. If I don't, I'll post a poll later.
