Post subject:  Final Assignment...!

I need ideas for my final assignment. I was thinking of a simple pong, but i did that and it won't include everything i need. I have no clue where to start, we have a bunch of... 'great' minds here so help me out dudes (make an appropriate one).. I was also thinking of improving my hangman and handing that in... but, i'm still open to suggestions.. the program must include

- Datafiles
- Arrays
- String manipulation

i know these things are totally simple... so gimmie somethin 'harder' to do

if you want something that's not too tough, you could do yahtzee, or if you want a bit of a challenge, you could make monopoly. That's what i did. You should be able to get all three of those categories in there.

pong with a lot of stuff (ie. good ai)
tic-tac-toe with perfick ai
card games (black jack, solaitater, ect)

homer, I know I can't technically stop you from sending your code to blade, however I reccomend you don't. The whole point of the final ISP is to tackle a challenge.

I hope blade will try it on his own first before appealing to homer for help.

but if not, doesn't affect me so who cares?! Laughing

well said the way...graphic calculator?!?!?!?! who's your teacher and where the fvck is he from?!?!?....personaly too easy for a final assignment and i've only been doing turing for a little while now (3-4 months).....(i did do other programming tho **smiles sheepishly**) a a paddle ball (brick) or summin....any game can have a file if you record high scores on it.....and if your teacher wants string manipulation....then make the user save his account with a name and pass and when they open the game....the users name and pass should be requested..or they can create a new account (you should allow deletion of accounts tho..).....i think that counts as string manipulation

Blade wants a challange, not an easy way out. Very Happy

I think you can pick from any of the classic arcade games... tetris, pacman, that thing like pong but where you break briks... asteroyds (lol - ask Catalyst) and more 8)

ileagal pic identifier typically means it can't find the pics you want to use, double check the file extension, directory, and spelling (caps incluided)

Here's a challenge to you: Make an rpg that is fun to play, and includes NO GRAPHICS whatsoever.

I did it, and got 58/50 (no typo)

lol thanks for all yer suggestions... the graphing calc sounds hard to me... but i think i'm just making it harder than what it really is (its a very bad habit that i cant seem to break)

I use to set my goals too high... then I slide them down untill project becomes reasonable... unfortunatly I quit before I let my standarts slide that low Confused Oh well, my compsci ISP is funny... I keep on changing the plans on weekly basis but now I actually started something and it partially works... programming in VB though, I'll post final product once compleat.

what is it?

well if anyone cares, my compsci teacher is lazy and makes grade 12s program useful apps that would benifit the school... with interviews, contracts and as much paperwork as programming Confused

long story short - I'm programming our "house system" database. Basically taking MS Access and writing VB functions and interface to make it easy and useful. What it basically does is just stores points that each student has in each of "events" that are going on in school... such as you get 20-25 points for being on a sport's team and 20-25 for being on a honor roll (80+% average)... I also get points for drawing comics for school's newspaper Very Happy

Its simple stuff really... now that I got my database designed the way I want it 8)

There will also be a website showing quieries like top w/e or something...

sounds like pointless busywork.... just my opinion tho....

you should give urself points for making the damn prog

Post subject: 

hah, ya... it is pointless.. thats why I wasted soo much time not doing it... figured admining compsci is way cooler then working on some project that was assigned by school...

though I suppose I could leave some back doors opened to allow myself to remotely edit the database while noone is looking Twisted Evil
