game plan (or whatever you call it)

Recommended Posts

ok I want to create a simple hangman game and I want to get a good start, so I made a simple game plan is this the right way to start a project, any suggestions are more then welcome!!! Hangman game ------------ A) main initialization ---------------------- B) intro -------- - title screen C) initialize ------------- - get a random word - misses = 0 D) main loop ------------ - create display * display hidden word like this : ******* * display the letters that you already picked * display how many misses you already have * display hangman accoarding to your misses - ask for a letter - check if letter is in word * if so change the hidden word like this : ***r*** * if not increase counter "misses" - check if word is complete * if complete goto outro * else restart main loop - check if you have a complete hangman * if complete goto outro * else restart main loop E) outro -------- - check if you guessed the word or not * if you guessed it => "you won!" * else => "you lost" - ask for a new game * if new game then goto C) initialize * else exit thanx in advance for any advice Edited by - da_cobra on October 20, 2001 6:05:25 AM

I got some advice: don''t redraw the entire screen.

Just update the parts you change. When a letter is guessed, remove the corresponding asterix, and replace it by the letter. When a letter is chosen, just put it in the "chosen letters" place. When the hangman gets bigger, just draw the part.

Don''t empty and redraw your whole screen. Seems to be a bit... pointless to me :D
