I've spent the past hour or so tweaking the "failed to load" functionality of the ShoeBox, and I *think* I've managed to get it to fail well, although.. Honestly, I won't know for sure until something does in fact break, and unlike most scenarios, I can't think of a quick and easy way to test this one!

If you see a dead shoebox, be sure to let me know!

Rest assured, however, that when it does now happen, a reset should no longer erase all of your Win/Play scores, just your current game's progress. I hope!!

RSKGames emailed, this morning, with a log file showing what happened in his browser, when the ShoeBox collection failed to load properly.

Managed to get a little bit of coding done, today.
I've added a fairly swift anagram-finder to the word engine of Shoebox. The script can more or less search anagrams for about two sets of letters each second, so should be fairly useable once I start making a "generic unbranded crossword style word game" game.

The next part of that particular puzzle is trying to decide on scores for tiles.

Do I stick with "Stringy Things" tile scores, which they currently are in the game, or do I switch to using "Scrabble" tile scores so that the inevitable "generic unbranded crossword style word game" game relies on your personal memory of what values each of the tiles should have..
Hmmmm...

Things will probably be fairly quiet around here for the next few days.
As soon as I'm allowed to post about it, I will do.

Suffice to say, the past couple of days haven't exactly been the cheeriest at home, and it's been fairly rough sailing.

Normal service will resume ASAP

KORG Gadget 2 released, yesterday morning, on iOS, Mac and also now on Windows.
As such, I took a day off from coding, and instead spent the day playing with the iOS edition of the app.

I did a few tweaks to the framework, yesterday.

There's now a mute button in the pause/escape menu, which works.. (For a few hours, it was there, but did absolutely nothing!!)

Michael emailed, late last night, to complain about the scaling on one of the games.
"No," thought I, "That should be working fine.."

It's hard to keep from breaking things when they're already live on the server.

I posted Klondike late last night, then grabbed the iPad, and settled back to play for a short while.

.. Uhoh!!

What should've been doable within a few short hours, ended up taking most of the day.



You can Play Klondike in the Shoebox of Games!

Had another "This game isn't possible" email, this morning, about the blocking of the Draw Pile in Spider Solitaire.

On the one hand, I guess I need to add a little more ingame, onscreen instructional stuff.
On the other hand.. People just want Klondike, don't they!!!



So that'll be today's task. Spend a few hours trying to replicate the "classic" solitaire, and see how easy it is to get it working, without needing to rewrite too much of the overall engine.
(And preferably fix things up to make future games easier)

I still need to fix the "mode select" screen.. it's oddly cramped and yet curiously empty at the same time.



Other than that, though, the games so far seem to be functional, and there's even a new Game Over screen for anything that uses scores.

... not sure how to solve the menu crampedness, though....

Hmm,....

Happy Birthday, Me!

And, as is tradition for my birthday, I've set made an iOS game (or two.. or three.. or four... or five...) free for the next few days.

From Feb 23rd until Feb 27th 2019, the following iOS games are available for 100% free.


Sheep Goes Right


The happiest cardboard-cutout puppet styled game, with sheep and spikes, that you'll ever play... until someone makes a happier one!

In the upper-right of the Shoebox menu, once you've selected a game, you should now find a small "Rules" icon.

Strings is more or less functional, although it's missing different playmodes, and the scores aren't kept, but otherwise it's working!
