I'm surprised... I've managed to progress fairly quickly as far as my Pokemon TCG Game is concerned... I was certain that properly-resizing all the cards would take me days, but I luckily found a program that did it all in ten seconds flat!
In addition to having every card from the base set sized properly, I've also got most of the game's interface designed. Rather than a viewpoint change, I'm going to use a new window for duels to pop up, and even a big pop-up when you start a duel that uselessly proclaims who you're dueling and shows you their name and deckname, and such.
Code-wise, I still haven't got much other than the bare-bones done, but I'm not worried about that at all. After all, coding's one of my few specialties.
In fact, I've even found the time to think up some little interface perks for the players. For example, I intend to include music in the game, so I should obviously have a music toggle option, right? I'm also going to include an option that toggles card-descriptions between images and text. What that means, is. You can either see an enlarged version of the card when you want to examine it, or the actual text from it.
So, for now, I'm going to finish up the interface, and actually get to work on the coding... Well, it shouldn't be hard, but it'll definitely be tricky to tie all of this into such a tangled knot.
All in all, the only hard part left will be putting the 102 cards from the base set into the game. But, it's nothing more than time-consuming really. It's a nice refresher to actually work for once, though...
If things go as planned, it should be ready for testing within the next three days, or even less! Here's hoping!
Oh, before I forget, I'll also probably include some kinda ranking system. Right now I'm figuring there'll be "wins", "losses", "draws", and "points". Wins giving one point, losses taking away half a point, and draws doing nothing. Well, I'll think it through more later.
There'll also be an option to upload user avatars. I may or may not make it BYOND Members Only, and give non-members a list of icons to choose from, we'll have to wait and see. Anyways, here's hoping things go well! Later!
