Hey that looks and sounds really good. :D I've added a new WIP page to the wiki. Feel free to change this page:

http://uzebox.org/wiki/index.php?title=Videopoker

Pls don't forget to reserve an EEPROM block ID for your game in the reservation list:

Thanks for adding the Wiki entry.

I've reserved an ID on the EEPROM list and shall update the game page as and when necessary.

Hi All

A brief update:

Just thought I'd upload a ".HEX" showing how far I have got with this project.

Not a huge amount to show but I thought I'd share it anyway:

1) Intro screen with music.
2) High scores read from EEPROM and displayed (defaults are written on first run).
3) "START" button to play.
4) Main game screen drawn
5) Deck shuffled / Five Cards Dealt / Cards Turned over to reveal hand with some basic SoundFX :roll:
6) Cards removed.
7) Loop to step 5)

Rough draft of work left to do (hopefully have a working alpha by early next week :roll:

1) After cards dealt make a bet from 1 to 5 Credits then hand will be revealed.
2) Decided which (if any) cards you wish to hold.
3) Cards not held are removed and replacements dealt then revealed.
4) Analyse hand and update score accordingly.
5) If Credits > 0 deal a new hand
6) Check for new high score etc.

I've messed around a bit too much with graphics / sound this last couple of days without much changing.

So I'm not touch either again until the game is fully functional, only then I will do all the spit and polish.

Feedback welcome as always

Cheers

Nice. I think you will run into the usual width adjustment problems though, because the texts start on leftmost pixel.

Could you explain in more detail about this, it's not something I'm familiar with - is it it some quirk with way the screen drawing is handled?


Cheers

Ckeck out http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Safe_area for details. Putting significant text in the action area (ie location 0,0) will not be visible on most CRT TVs.

Hi Folks

Attached a fully playable (though no high score table entry ATM) version of the game below!

Controls displayed on-screen (also on the WIKI entry http://uzebox.org/wiki/index.php?title=Videopoker)

To Do List

1) Add high score name entry
2) Music/fanfare for 1)
3) Add/Change some SoundFx
4) Indication of winning hand rank, as opposed it just showing "Winner".
.....etc.

Appreciate any feedback, particularly on:

1) Bugs found - bound to something lurking around in there for sure.
2) Control system layout.
3) Speed of the cards being dealt (too slow / fast)
4) Starting credits (currently 100)
5) Suggestions for changes are welcome, if they get implemented is a different matter ;)

I'm really pleased to have got this point in such a short time. :D

Hopefully put this baby to bed by the end of this coming week, as I already have an idea for my second project down on paper etc :idea:


Cheers

Good stuff, I think all the items you were looking for suggestions on are good right now. Looked for bugs in betting, etc. and I can't find anything. The high scores are a bit unreachable or I don't know what I'm doing on keeping cards. Nice work Jim

Thanks for the nice feedback D3thAdd3r :)

I'll look into tweaking the default High Scores as after quite a lot of testing they do seem a bit on the high side :roll:

Well it's pretty much finished now.

Recent updates:
Lowered default scores in high score table.
High score table name entry added (with a little fanfare)
Winning hand type displayed

Just a few tweaks & polishing and I shall update the WIKI entry and upload the final version HEX also.
