- Ok, I'm on break between my fall semester and spring semester of
college and I will be so for a couple of weeks. I ended up with a B
in vb.net 1.
That gives me time to finish up some goals:
1)get Jesse v.02 ready to compile for distribution
2)get James v.01 ready to compile for disribution
What's the heck Jesse v.02 and James v.01?
James v.01 is an application for saving data about map tiles for
Gladiator into a binary file.
Jesse v.02 will use data files created by James v.01 to edit maps for
the games of gladiator.
How far long am I?
I finally started to code James v.01 to get the data entry to work
(moving it beyond just being a static gui). All I have to do is work
out a file save format and I should be able to finish coding James
v.01 rather quickly.
What's the status of Jesse v.02?
Obviously, it can't read the data files created by James v.01 since
they don't exist. I gotta code both the Insert Row/Column feature and
the Delete Row/Column feature for maps and that's where I'm stopping
on new features. I, also, am going to try to put the thumbnail map
features from Jesse v.01 into Jesse v.02. Obviously, from my pov at
least, I can't put the thumbnail features from Jesse v.01 into Jesse
v.02 until AFTER James v.01 is finished AND Jesse v.02 reads the data
files created by James v.01.
Is there any other stuff for gladiator that I'm thinking of working on?
Ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Yes. It's contigent upon how
hard it is/will be to get James v.01 to work like I want it.
Tell me more.
Ok, since you wanted to know. When I started working on James v.01
again, It occured to me the similarities between the data files that
James v.01 will create and the fss files used to store the data about
scenario files. I *might* be able to write a program to view the
objects in a scenario file like you view records in a table in a
database. Such a program is on the list of items potentially to be
put on my backburner.
What aren't you telling us?
D'uh, my time is limited. I plan on attending a convention during the
summer called "The Gathering of the Gargoyles" -
http://www.gatheringofthegargoyles.com/ . It's an annual convention
for those who love gargoyles the tv series. I'm paying for my way
there as a present for myself for graduating college. I started to
work on a gargoyles card modelled after yugioh except the cards
reflect things from the universe of the gargoyles. As soon as I
finish work on James v.01 and Jesse v.02, I plan on moving work on
that card game from my back burner to my front burner. My goal is to
have the game ready by the convention. I have a yahoo group for
working on it - http://groups.yahoo.com/group/garg-card-game/ - but
that's nothing for you guys to worry about. I only mention it to
explain why I plan on stopping where I plan on stopping work on
gladiator related programs.
D'uh, I will be putting my source code at snowstorm's sourceforge webiste.
- I'm almost finished with James. All I have to do is code an open file
command, a delete button, and code some validation rules for saving
the data and I'm done. Once that's done, it's a matter of doing data
entry and compiling James and I'm done with James. Then I'll go back
to work on Jesse.
- Finally finished work with James, except for the Delete Record button.
What took so long? Simple, I got my old pc running again (I had to
buy a new keyboard) and that makes it much easier for me to move code
from Jesse v.01 to Jesse v.02 (copying modules from vb to vb.net).
Now, it's off to do the data entry in James and then make Jesse v.02
use James's data.
