Re: Game of Risk, final version

Hi Henko, I understand, no problem. I love it. I tried to use the save game option you put in, but it would not let me slide it off of new game. I don't know if my iPad touch screen is the issue or if you haven't programmed it. I have had issues with the pop up keyboard before. Maybe if I have time,...

Re: FindFile functi

No, it's not old age. I don't know how many files I have that have more than one copy, but my documents and data size is 2.03GB! I know that I have multiple copies of many programs (I re downloaded a lot just in case Mr. K. does go ahead and removes Dropbox access), I wanted to make sure most if not...

Re: Printing in SB programs

This is why I didn't need to make very much changes, as I print to a network printer that is a WIFI-only connected. I have a thermal dye photo only printer, but I haven't yet hooked it up as I am still unpacking my office boxes. That will need to go through the webserver, which can be accessed eithe...

Re: Game of Risk, final version

I don't see what the issue is. I look for the indicator that says a post was updated, or in this case, A program that I had been watching and waiting to run. I know for me I I don't care if my post is first or second or third or winds up on page 32. You know I just happy if I get replied to a post o...

Re: The game of Risk

Thanks for your explanation on the issues that I haven't had pointed out. But probably will always be in disagreement on the initial placement of armies. I remember as a child playing this game and part of the strategy was to make sure that if you had a good choke point or you had three or four stat...

Re: Printing in SB programs

I'll check, but I don't recall making changes, at least major ones. The reason is a webserver is a webserver, regardless of the platform it runs on. I spent 25 years running my own webserver for clients and to sell virtual websites, and the webserver runs on top of the OS. Whether it is a Unix, Linu...

I created a PDF file that contains the entire text of this post and a complete listing of all the code that is in this post. You can find this PDF file at: https://www.dropbox.com/s/k9qsguqwh7ki8ms/Printing%20in%20SB%20programs.pdf?dl=0 I think I created this link so that everybody can view it. If y...

Re: The game of Risk

I had one other thought about the way you have structured the way the game is played. I understand adding defense of strength overtime when you occupy a country/state for a number of turns is an interesting addition to the game. However, because when I hit the army button and everything turns to zer...

Re: The game of Risk

I'll try the Apple home button. I spent most of the night playing just two games, one I won, the other I lost. I quit (restarting SB) because most of the time I went last, and only had two countries left. I played this game (and Stratego) almost every day growing up, so I'm excited about your game. ...

Re: The game of Risk

I love this game. But question – where is the quit button?
