Quote from: Gaz
When it says (Sum Of All Dice) on 3ofakind / 4ofakind, I think it means Sum of all Equal dice.

It also says "sum of all dice" for chance...

But your are right in part. I went back and looked...

A more complete quote would be
Quote from: wikipedia
Swedish rules for the game follow a slightly different set of scoring categories and rules in scoring. This Swedish variation is used mainly in Scandinavian and Finnish versions of the game....

In a similar vein, the Three-of-a-Kind and Four-of-a-Kind categories are scored by the total of the needed number of same-faced dice. (For instance, 5-5-5-5-6 will score 20 points in Four-of-a-Kind and 15 points in Three-of-a-Kind; under standard rules, the same combination would give the player 26 points in either category.)

Also, the traditional version does not have a Two Pair.

You are right, but for a different set of valid rules... the Swedish ones.  :)

EDIT:

PS A new version is out with added preferences thanks to LaPatateInc and Gaz.

Thanks!  ::sm-29.gif::

Alright, I have to announce that the save function is yet again giving me trouble. A bug is causing the game to be playable for only three times at a time. This bug, though annoying, doesn't make the game unplayable; it simply means that after three rounds, the game has to be reset.

Try to reset Sprites and Bg after each game ?
Are you using Palib ? :

PA_ResetSpriteSys();
You then need to reload all sprites.

PA_DeleteBg(screen,BG number);
It may be good also to clean your BG and reload them.

At least, that's what I do when the main menu load, the Game load, and when anything Reload.
In fact, I have a Reinit function which is called right after loading palletes and Initiating things. It is recalled anytime by writing with "reinit()". It works pretty good that way, even if I have a 8142x4096 pixels Bg ; )

I use those all the time (probably too much). I think I know where the problem lies. I need to reset a char. When I change it, it seems to retain the previous entry resulting in the much dreaded buffer overrun.

Does anyone know how to do this?

Yes...Yes yes yes...... YESSSSSSS! Finally! The complete version is out, v1.0! It supports saving of high scores (though still only up to seven), three complete themes, and several cool features. It is in fact the full version and fully playable. I will probably get bored within the next couple of days and update it some more, but this version is complete. The colors are done, but if anyone has any suggestions, I'd love to hear from you. I think I've ironed out the critical kinks, but if you see a bug, please post. Some minor bugs are known and for those I will probably do little. Enjoy!

3:29 AM on the last day  ::sm-01::

Update: version 1.2

change log:

 * added a better "new high score" screen.

 * added rule book.

Not really a whole lot, but this is the final release for the compo. I've been on vacation for most of the compo and have had access to legal Wi-Fi, but that is changing tomorrow. Unless I can hit a coffee shop or something, I will not be able to access  the internet for eight or so days. Do comment, though; I will be able to respond after I get back. Lastly, I think it would be neat if testers and reviewers would post there best scores here in this thread. Reviewing these scores would help me gauge how well the game is working.

:) ~sm-36.gif~ :)

EDIT: I'll be unavailable sometime in the late morning. I'll try to check in before that.


v1.2

Minor note here... because the compo is over now I need to state that the blue screen of death in my game is a joke... not that anyone seems to have actually come across it...
