AGS Yahtzee v2.0 *Bottom score and more*
« on: 25 Apr 2008, 12:13 »
AGS Yahtzee

well what can i say? it's not an adventure but it's the good old yahtzee with some additions!  :)


the menu v2.0


Adding a profile


faint quadruple mode with reworked interface


a few statistics for every player

there are 9 game modes "single", "double", "triple", "quadruple", "ultimate quadruple", "faint quadruple", "ultimate faint quadruple", "flower" and "countdown".

single is the standard version and in double, triple and quadruple mode you just have extra columns with a multiplier (e.g. column 3 means points x3).
in the ultimate mode you have 4 columns as in quadruple mode BUT you have rotating columns. that means in round 1 you play in column 1, in round 2 in column 2, in round 3 in column 3, in round 4 in column 4 and then it starts again with column 1.
for each mode there is a seperate highscore list for which i used Rocco's highscore module.

Faint Mode:
You have a Quadruple AGS Yahtzee scoreboard BUT it's not as easy as a normal Yahtzee game!
What does that mean?

60 points upper score in 1. column = 25 bonus points.
63 points upper score in 2. column = 35 bonus points.
66 points upper score in 3. column = 45 bonus points.
69 points upper score in 4. column = 55 bonus points.

AND a "0" from the other modes becomes a "-25" in FAINT mode!

Ultimate Faint Mode: Guess what?


Flower Mode:

You have a Triple AGS Yahtzee scoreboard BUT there are some special rules:

If you have an upper score of 63 points you receive bonuspoints.

upper score of 63 or higher in column 1 means total upper score of column 1 as bonuspoints in column 3.
upper score of 63 or higher in column 2 means total upper score of column 2 as bonuspoints in column 2.
upper score of 63 or higher in column 3 means total upper score of column 3 as bonuspoints in column 1.

AND a "0" from the other modes becomes a "-?" in FLOWER mode!

Countdown

You have a Triple AGS Yahtzee Scoreboard BUT there are some special rules again:

First of all the number of rounds in this mode is random. So it is possible that not all fields are played. The Countdown color indicates whether the end is near or not.

Upper score >= 63 --> bonus points = upper score

For every yahtzee you get 100 extra points!

And a "0" becomes more negative with every round (e.g. round 1: -1, round 2: -2...).

"first hand" rule: If you roll a full house, small/large straight or yahtzee with your first roll you receive double score.

quick hint: if you move the mouse to the left edge of the screen the quick hint gui pops up.

tournament mode: play all modes one after another and go for the world record! the points from each mode add up!




AGS Yahtzee v2.0

So, what's new Scooby Doo?

Profiles: every player now has his own profile with some statistics.

Bottom score: everyone wants to reach the highscore and no one wants to lose. but now your worst results are honored in a "highscore" table.

reworked interface: i wanted to get rid of the grey buttons, so i integrated their functions in different places (eg game information can be accessed by clicking on the logo in the top left corner or highscores by clicking on the modes name).

*** note: a tournament savegame from an earlier version won't work with this version!

That's funny, I didn't know you could roll three times, thought it had to be twice.

Great work! :D

And it's about time someone made this!

Seriously, I've played this a lot as a kid, downloading it now. But judging solely from the screenshots, great work!

Wow, looking good. Might be a nice alternative for all those adventures... I've played this a lot with 'real' dice.
I'll give this one a try as well.

Good work!.

by the way: Quadruple or Quadrupel or both?

I'm not a Yahtzee fan, but this is really well implemented (all of the rules, some nice "hey, sure you wanna do that dude?" alerts and a captivating graphic). Thumbs up!

Dice is already the plural, btw. "die" is the singular.

er.....very good question. now i see that all buttons end on -le only the quadrupel/quadruple ones end on -el. i think quadruple is right so i have to switch the letters.  ;D

I had the same bug in the double mode, it worked fine the first time then while
playing the 4 of a kind blocked me and I was unable to enter value/finish the game.

Looks great, nice design too! Nothing like a good bit of yahtzee! I played it for the first time in 4 years a few weeks ago. With the same people I played it with 4 years previous! I'm downloading this & sharing it with them also, so thanks!! :)

AGS YAHTZEE!

I can't wait to try this out, but MediaFire isn't letting me download the file...?

Will there be a possible mirror?
