Heh, how''d you get screwed into that task?

Okay, you don''t have time to learn any sort of "real" programming language, and it''s a stretch to even think you can learn to use something like VisualBasic in a month.

Perhaps if you give us a few more specifics we can help better select your poison.

Best of luck,
ZE.

as a hobby, i design webpages and do some graphics. hence, my colleagues thought that i might be able to come up with this game show for our fellowship night.

specifics?! well, i need to do the FAMILY FEUD TV GAME SHOW..the answerboard, the timer, the scoreboard...

i attended a Visual Basic seminar 3 years ago but never had the chance to use it in my daily routine...can i use that for this game?

fellowship night at the congress?

what about some php scripts if your a web bloke?

plenty of killer ones out there!

there is probably free games with files you can manipulate to ask questions more based on what you want

You could do a VB version of Family Feud in about a week if you knew the language well enough using just the basic controls. It wouldn''t win any awards, but it would work. Do you even have the data to be used (questions & answers)?

all the survey questions and answers will be provided to me...i will have to take care of the mechanisms...

guess i need to grab a quick tutorial on VB...

i do a little flash...as ive said, web design is just a hobby hence i don''t work on all those softwares in-depth...i haven''t explored flash''s capabilities in doing games...can it accept answers as encoded thru the keyboard?...most of the games i see which is done in flash involves mouse movements...

Hi ,
I don´t know whats a fellowship night ? but who cares !
Well why don´t you try something like blitz basic
You want to create a game for a tv show or you create that game for your fellowship night ? I am not a nativ speaker so i don´t know whats all that about !
Try flash xp ( i think thats the new release ) It has some cool features ( Java programming ) Should the game run on tv ?
or what ?
take an existing game and convert it just like you want it to !
There are a few programms in the net called (game makers?)
With this programms you can create games very easily? (yes they are shit but who cares ?)
A nother possibility is to take the Unreal Engine !
You can make your own games whith that 3dgame !
But this also takes some time !
Or is this a game for the web ????
Fuck I should make an english crash course !
You can also take the Macromedia Director for creating games !
thought about that ?
your choice ________________________***


Hope it helps
