In Topic: Card Engine Platform

18 December 2007 - 11:15 AM

Hello Pete.

I've made a card engine for solitaire found here: http://worldofsolitaire.com
It supports 25 different variations right now and I hope to eventually expand that to over 100.

However unlike your idea, it's an engine focused on single player card games.
I've been tossing around in my head the idea about doing a multi-player card game engine, but it's certainly quite a different beast indeed.
I do think its feasible though, just take a lot of thinking ahead of time :)

Anyways, thought I would chime in.

You'd be amazed what can be done in AJAX.

Wow, Thats amazing.

Thanks :)

As the author of the linked site, I know first hand that card games done with just AJAX are quite possible :)

If you have any questions, let me know.

Congratulations! If this is your first real game, then I am impressed. I am amazed at the amount of polish in the game, especially the interface and visual style (even more so considering that most JavaScript games have very minimal interfaces with little actual graphics). The animations were great, I love the fact that it supports so many different games, and I thought that there were enough options included to appeal to most people. If this were available in a stand alone executable, it would easily offer a much better alternative to the card games included with Windows.

The game ran just fine in Mozilla Firefox I played Klondike (both styles), FreeCell, and Spider and I didn't notice any bugs or problems.

Thanks for the good comments!

It is indeed my first real game. You only get 1 chance to make a first impression so I like to make sure things are really polished, clean and as bug free as possible before I show people.

The entire game, written in javascript does indeed work 'Offline' as well.
So I have on my to-do list create a 'Stand Alone' version that people can download. It will still run in the browser, just not need a network connection.

I've recently added some new things to the game:

* A new Card Deck
* More satisfying 'You Win!' screen
* Enhanced Statistics including pie and line charts:

I've tested things and it appears that the game works great on the following browser:
* IE 6
* IE 7
* FireFox (Win32 and Linux)
* Opera (Win32, Wii, Linux)
* Safari (Win32)
* Seamonkey (Linux)
* Konqueror (Statistic Charts don't show up)

Next on my list is to profile some code and improve performance here and there, as well as add lots of new solitaire types :)

Well I am using IE 6. And I tried it again on Tuesday Augest 14, 2007 at 12:16pm GMT-5 and I get the same problem.

Internet Explorer reports an error with the script with the following output.

Line: 25
Char: 4
Error: 'Solitaire' is undefined
Code: 0
URL: http://worldofsolitaire.com/

This time a single refresh fixes the problem and the game works perfectly afterwards without any issues as far as I can tell.

I'll load up a VMWare image I have with Win2k and IE6 and take a look. Thanks for reporting the issue :)
