Me in a Windows vs Linux debate: "but can you play minesweeper during the installation?" - Linux wins13
Clearly right now... Just spent 2 days writing a minesweeper clone because I wanted the ability to undo.
It's almost done... aka 10+ hrs...21
Bought a tiny tablet so I can more easily do server management on the road/in bed.
I'm playing old school minesweeper on it now 😓12
I just found out that Microsoft created solitaire to teach users to click and drag with the mouse, and minesweeper to teach users to use the right button of their mouse.
So as most of you know I was inspired to create a Minesweeper that allows continuing after you hit a mine.
Not sure if such a version existed before but... if it doesn't now it does.
Sorry @linuxxx Windows only... don't feel like learning Electron ATM or JavaFX... honestly I just wanted the games to continue after hitting a mine.18
I'm making multiplayer minesweeper using NodeJS and so far so good but I can NEVER FUCKING FOCUS ENOUGH. Like damn, I should be way further along with this shit.10
Once got 3rd place in a company "code golf". It was open to any language or platform.
I built a functional minesweeper game in Excel with 600 lines of code, complete with color and animation.
Recreated minesweeper... Sort of
Some how Medium is still extremely hard.
Seems just using a random number generator for Mine placement doesn't make good games...16
I found it funny that we're actually debugging our code on prod. (while the client is using the system)
Looks like I'm playing minesweeper. 😂
ps. will never do it again
pps. don't do it
ppps. you should not4
Just remembered my Informatics teacher left me and my friend a side project to do by the end of summer:
The task is to replicate the game "Minesweeper" in a C# form.
Now, I never actually even understood that game when I played it, how the hell can I program that? ;-;
Well okay, yeah, I might have to actually start looking into it... but freak, it's almost the end of summer already, and I'm still on vacation... my fault I guess. ;—;8
Some more java speedcoding because i got positive feedback, this time i made a minesweeper
I'm currently trying out Apache Cordova. Feels like playing minesweeper for the first time.
But as always a debugger rushes to rescue me:
Ripple :: Environment Warming Up (Tea. Earl Grey. Hot.)
Yes, I'm gonna make me a cup of tea now.1
So I coded minesweeper and because I thought it would be fun, I also coded a multiplayer mode. Then I uploaded the code to github. Since this was an Assignment, I wanted to download the zipped code and send it to my teacher. Imagine my surprise, when Chrome told me: Failed - Virus detected. Same with Firefox and Edge. Wow. I didn't think my code was that bad🙃. I then tried to download the release executables I uploaded, expecting for them to fail the test too, but nope, the . exe and the . jar work fine. Google also didn't say much about it. I found a github issue, that talked about a similar problem with the zipped source code, but wasn't much help. What is going on? Anyone have an idea?9
Although it was simple
My coolest project I made was a 2 game java app(minesweeper, tic-tac-toe) it was for the java class last year
But now I am working on a sudoku game project for the artificial intelligence class and I am having hard time with it since I am obliged to use game editor to make it, since game editor doesn't help in debugging 😭😭😭😭😭
I remember the first time i didn't need to press a physical button in order to shut down my computer. I thought it was the greatest computer engineering achievement since the launch of minesweeper.
My parents bought me a Dell desktop computer, monitor, and keyboard/mouse combo when I was in the 2nd or 3rd grade. It didn't have Internet though since this was before WiFi was really a thing. So I just spent most of the time playing space pinball and minesweeper
