Re: Sudoku

Not sure how to post a video here so here's a link to a video cap of completing the game but causing the repeat game error: https://youtu.be/6Xsd549MhCg And here I had the option of placing the final two 6's and final two 2's in two different ways to produce proper solutions. Using the Input Help to...

Re: Sudoku

Now it didn't do it. I don't know. Maybe I'll have to watch it a bit more. I know this puzzle I just played had two possible solutions when I got to the very end so I don't know if it has something to do with that. Aka: found a solution but not the one it was expecting or this time found a solution ...

Re: Sudoku

Looking good! :D So far I've liked the new features. And Mmmmmm stats! :mrgreen: Speaking of which, the ToolButtonStats has the wrong ToolTip info on it. So far it flows nicely. Simple intuitive interface. I'm going to try a few more games with different features on and off see if I find anything el...

Re: Sudoku

Nice interface. Even though it requires the keyboard for number entry, it is a very efficient entry system for this game. I really like the no clicking required action with the mouse. Just hover and enter the correct value. This works well whether you enter the values systematically (aka all the one...

Re: Joystick Class

No probs. Suggestions are always welcomed. :) I did some more playing around with the class I uploaded and for some reason its not letting me create an instance at run time. I end up loosing the ability to click things with the mouse. But dropping an instance onto a form works well. So this is not a...

Re: Joystick Class

Yes I have seen that. I downloaded that request and merged it into the latest source and successfully compiled it. But I was having trouble getting it to work. And seeing that it has fallen stale by 2 years I figured it isn't coming any time soon. :( So I taking the 'advise' from your signature, "If...

Joystick Class

I've been looking for a way to integrate a joystick into one of my Gambas projects but couldn't find any official support. After doing a lot of searching, I found a wonderful project written by jsbsan on GitHub where he started to reproduce the old video game 1945 in Gambas and it has joystick suppo...

Re: A simple 'pipe' opening and "Watch" routine

Hey Bruce, any chance of this working on a device file like /dev/input/js0? I tried editing the Pipe line to point to the joystick, and had to rem the Shell echo line as the file is read only. But I'm getting the program lock-up issue you described. Even moving the joystick doesn't unlock the progra...

Re: Delay when sending / receiving via serial port

So it probably is the actual serial port its self that's causing the delay. That may be why I liked the old 80's/90's serial cards. They weren't fancy, but seemed to obey strict communication standards. Unfortunately I can not advise on what would be a good replacement that would work in modern equi...
