Re: The game of Hamurabi with a new coat

I didn't do too badly on my first performance review. Gee, I am even a threat to the Pharoah.

Guess I better not do as well next time, or I could be hauling rocks up pyramids!

Re: The game of Hamurabi with a new coat

Another great improvement. :D I will somehow find time today to play it.

Hamurabi's performance review reminds me of the Seinfeld episode where Mr. Peterman reviews Elaine's covering off for him during his year off: "Thank you, Elaine for a job ... done."

Re: The game of Hamurabi with a new coat

In a recent game of Hamurabi with a new coat, I noticed too late that instead of entering 800 bushels to feed 400 people for a year, I entered 80! It was a silly mistake that in "real life" would have caused riots, revolution and impeachment. I think I deserved that. Instead, when I pressed Next Rou...

Re: Create a page

You can do a lot with sprites. Meanwhile, here is a crawling bit of text that shows how you can show credits, etc. Some things to note: The moving center page is defined first, then the top and bottom pages. So they cover the moving page, but because their alpha is less than 1, it shows through a li...

Re: Create a page

I just re-read that post, matt7. I think your sprite ordering information is very valuable, and hope Dutchman will add it to the Smart Basic PDF Manual.

Re: The game of Hamurabi with a new coat

Very nice! The game is much easier to play with the on-screen keyboard. So far I have not been impeached! 🤞🏻

Re: Create a page

Sprites can also be children of a page, and can contain anything you want to put into them: lines, text, boxes, circles, even images.

Re: Detect Touch in TEXT Mode

One further improvement to my code in this topic. I was mistaken that the first page created on a text screen had to be the full size of the screen. It was just a misunderstanding about where and how the command PAGE N$ FRAME X,Y, W,H can be used. It can't create a page of a certain shape. But if th...

Re: Create a page

No trouble. Here is a small sample of three pages. All are visible. The middle red page can be dragged sideways in either direction. To have the other pages cover it, I would define it first and them afterward. But in this code, I defined the middle page last, so it is on top of the blue and magenta...
