Dots and Boxes Game Primer Tutorial

Today, do you fancy …

Morphing a clone

… or should that be …
Cloning a morph

… onto yesterday’s SOS Game Primer Tutorial with our new “Dots and Boxes” game?

Yes, that’s it for us today, simply because the “morphed into” is a lot like “the end result”, our new Dots and Boxes Game. After all, both are …

  • online games
  • on a board
  • with span cells
  • containing onclick logic
  • ideally for 2 or more players

And as for the onclick logic Javascript logic? We can’t remember relying on the outerHTML (ie. the entire HTML element expressed as HTML) of an HTML (span) element for the (onclick event) logic basis, as per (the plug in code different to (and the same as) yesterday’s code)

SOS Game Primer Tutorial

Even though it took too long to get to yesterday’s Word Find Game Viewport Tutorial‘s Word Find Game’s level of satisfaction, for us, it was always going to be worth it, because when you overengineer it can mean cloning off that into another useful web application is a “paring down” exercise, more than anything, and this is infinitely easier than “a reinvention of the wheel” scenario, especially where it comes to “cross platform” game usage “user experience” issues.

The fun bit of such an approach, in thinking about what we end up with today is the thought that a …

  • Word Find Game … could be cloned or morphed into a …
  • SOS Game

… we remember from our days at high school, in less than a day. The memory of the SOS Game did not extend to the detail, and so we thank How to Play – SOS for reminders about the status of diagonality, while up versus down and forwards versus backwards concerns were a bit “per se” regarding “SOS”!

It was the confluence of one “onclick” type event to cover, regarding span elements set out in a grid initialized to a non-breaking space ( ie. &nbsp; ) …

  • fill in contents as “S”
  • fill in contents as “O”

… that set us to determining for the span “cell” click, was it positioned …

  • in the top half means “S” … or …
  • in the bottom half means “O”

? This had us converging on changes to the “clicks” mode onclick event Javascript logic …

  • we start asking for an optional (comma separated) user name list … that if used …
  • starts looking for Notifications API functionality to keep the players informed about proceedings … and …
  • if underlying Navigator API navigator.platform points at an underlying macOS operating system, also offer the user the chance to turn notification wording to audio commentary, as well

… as per Javascript …

SOS Game Primer Tutorial

SOS Game Primer Tutorial

SOS Game Primer Tutorial

Even though it took too long to get to yesterday’s Word Find Game Viewport Tutorial‘s Word Find Game’s level of satisfaction, for us, it was always going to be worth it, because when you overengineer it can mean cloning off that into another useful web application is a “paring down” exercise, more than anything, and this is infinitely easier than “a reinvention of the wheel” scenario, especially where it comes to “cross platform” game usage “user experience” issues.

The fun bit of such an approach, in thinking about what we end up with today is the thought that a …

  • Word Find Game … could be cloned or morphed into a …
  • SOS Game

… we remember from our days at high school, in less than a day. The memory of the SOS Game did not extend to the detail, and so we thank How to Play – SOS for reminders about the status of diagonality, while up versus down and forwards versus backwards concerns were a bit “per se” regarding “SOS”!

It was the confluence of one “onclick” type event to cover, regarding span elements set out in a grid initialized to a non-breaking space ( ie. &nbsp; ) …

  • fill in contents as “S”
  • fill in contents as “O”

… that set us to determining for the span “cell” click, was it positioned …

  • in the top half means “S” … or …
  • in the bottom half means “O”

? This had us converging on changes to the “clicks” mode onclick event Javascript logic …

Yesterday’s Word Find Game Modes of Use Tutorial gave us the means by which we could have multiple players in our “Finding the Word” game, as a number. But many users prefer “names” to “numbers”. And so …

  • we start asking for an optional (comma separated) user name list … that if used …
  • starts looking for Notifications API functionality to keep the players informed about proceedings … and …
  • if underlying Navigator API navigator.platform points at an underlying macOS operating system, also offer the user the chance to turn notification wording to audio commentary, as well

… as per Javascript …


function notify(what) {
if (what.trim() != '' && anames[0].replace('Player 1','').trim() != '') {

Word Find Game Viewport Tutorial

Word Find Game Viewport Tutorial

Word Find Game Viewport Tutorial

Do you remember the last time at this blog that we simulated the Android “toast” mobile app temporary message box with Ants Up a Wall Game Toast Tutorial?

It forms part of our solution regarding …

  • mobile device use …
  • the user using the webpage viewport …
  • and the device “spreading” gesture (ie. opposite to “pinch” gesture) to hone in on an area in “sea of letters” … but because they fill the screen this way, and they lose sight of the score we want new …
  • “toast” message box position fixed view of score and status as it changes without the user having to shift their viewing position (looking at their “sea of letters” area)

… that was not in yesterday’s Word Find Game Aesthetics Tutorial.

Here’s how this happened, for us, with the code …

We established a viewport …

<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1, minimum-scale=0.1, maximum-scale=8, user-scalable=yes" >
We CSS style a “toast” class …
<style>

.custom-alert {
display: inline-block;
/* visibility: visible; */
background-color: rgba(102,102,102,0.8);
color: #fff;
text-align: enter;
margin: 5% auto;
padding: 12px 28px;
opacity: 0.9;
z-index: 200;
}

</style>
We Javascript initiate the “toast” instance, featuring “viewport” savvy screen positioning, for the webpage and maintain its visibility status

function showIt(what) {
var ris=null;
if (navigator.userAgent.match(/Android|BlackBerry|iPhone|iPad|iPod|Opera Mini|IEMobile/i)) {
if (document.getElementById('custom-alert-1')) {
document.getElementById('custom-alert-1').innerHTML=what;
document.getElementById('custom-alert-1').style.opacity='0.95';

Yesterday’s Word Find Game Modes of Use Tutorial gave us the means by which we could have multiple players in our “Finding the Word” game, as a number. But many users prefer “names” to “numbers”. And so …

  • we start asking for an optional (comma separated) user name list … that if used …
  • starts looking for Notifications API functionality to keep the players informed about proceedings … and …
  • if underlying Navigator API navigator.platform points at an underlying macOS operating system, also offer the user the chance to turn notification wording to audio commentary, as well

… as per Javascript …


function notify(what) {
if (what.trim() != '' && anames[0].replace('Player 1','').trim() != '') {

… along with a span element showing the current player number all within that topmost h1 element, and helped out by two new dropdown (ie. select element) onchange event Javascript logics …

Word Find Game Personalization Tutorial

Yesterday’s Word Find Game Modes of Use Tutorial gave us the means by which we could have multiple players in our “Finding the Word” game, as a number. But many users prefer “names” to “numbers”. And so …

  • we start asking for an optional (comma separated) user name list … that if used …
  • starts looking for Notifications API functionality to keep the players informed about proceedings … and …
  • if underlying Navigator API navigator.platform points at an underlying macOS operating system, also offer the user the chance to turn notification wording to audio commentary, as well

… as per Javascript …


function notify(what) {
if (what.trim() != '' && anames[0].replace('Player 1','').trim() != '') {
if (what != lastwhat) {
lastwhat=what;
setTimeout(lwn, 8000);
document.getElementById('notif').src='./notifications_ideas.php?scheduledblurb=' + encodeURIComponent(what);
if (trysay) { //alert('HTTP://localhost:8888/macos_say_record.php?andsoonclose=y&docronwork=say%20' + encodeURIComponent(what));
window.open('HTTP://localhost:8888/macos_say_record.php?andsoonclose=y&docronwork=say%20' + encodeURIComponent(what), 'sayif', 'top=50,left=50,width=500,height=500');

… word finding in the game, but we also want to allow for …

  • vertical down
  • vertical up
  • diagonal right down
  • diagonal right up
  • diagonal left down

Word Find Game Personalization Tutorial

Yesterday’s Word Find Game Modes of Use Tutorial gave us the means by which we could have multiple players in our “Finding the Word” game, as a number. But many users prefer “names” to “numbers”. And so …

  • we start asking for an optional (comma separated) user name list … that if used …
  • starts looking for Notifications API functionality to keep the players informed about proceedings … and …
  • if underlying Navigator API navigator.platform points at an underlying macOS operating system, also offer the user the chance to turn notification wording to audio commentary, as well

… as per Javascript …


function notify(what) {
if (what.trim() != '' && anames[0].replace('Player 1','').trim() != '') {
if (what != lastwhat) {
lastwhat=what;
setTimeout(lwn, 8000);

Word Find Game Personalization Tutorial

Yesterday’s Word Find Game Modes of Use Tutorial gave us the means by which we could have multiple players in our “Finding the Word” game, as a number. But many users prefer “names” to “numbers”. And so …

  • we start asking for an optional (comma separated) user name list … that if used …
  • starts looking for Notifications API functionality to keep the players informed about proceedings … and …
  • if underlying Navigator API navigator.platform points at an underlying macOS operating system, also offer the user the chance to turn notification wording to audio commentary, as well

… as per Javascript …


function notify(what) {
if (what.trim() != '' && anames[0].replace('Player 1','').trim() != '') {
if (what != lastwhat) {
lastwhat=what;
setTimeout(lwn, 8000);

if (trysay) { //alert('HTTP://localhost:8888/macos_say_record.php?andsoonclose=y&docronwork=say%20' + encodeURIComponent(what));

Word Find Game Underlay Tutorial

Word Find Game Modes of Use Tutorial

Online games often feature …

  • degree of difficulty
  • number of player(s)

… modes of use that the user(s) can control. And so, with this in mind, to improve on yesterday’s Word Find Game Underlay Tutorial we’ve set out providing ways the users can control these two concepts via two new dropdowns …


<h1>Word Find Game <select onchange="restart(this);"><option value="hard">Hard</option><option value="easy">Easy</option><option value="easier">Easier</option><option value="easiest">Easiest</option></select> <span id=curbit>for</span> <select id=numsel onchange='nparrange(this);'><option value=1>1 player</option><option value=2>2 players</option><option value=3>3 players</option><option value=4>4 players</option><option value=5>5 players</option></select></h1>

Word Find Game Underlay Tutorial

If you are a regular reader at this blog, you will know we discuss the CSS styling idea of …

… but there is essentially only the difference in the control of “z-index” (and maybe “opacity”) property different about the concepts, and to deploy to improve on for the start we made with yesterday’s Word Find Game Primer Tutorial.

“Underlay” usefulness, to us, goes like this …

  • what you “underlay” … for us within the new CSS styling …

    <style>
    textarea {
    font-family: Courier New;
    font-size: 20px;
    opacity: 0.9;
    z-index: 9;
    padding: 0 0 0 0;
    margin: 0 0 0 0;

    }

    #underlay {
    font-family: Courier New;
    font-size: 20px;
    opacity: 0.3;
    z-index: 1;
    padding: 0 0 0 0;
    margin: 0 0 0 0;
    }

    div.underlay {
    font-family: Courier New;
    font-size: 20px;
    opacity: 0.3;
    z-index: 2;
    padding: 0 0 0 0;
    margin: 0 0 0 0;
    }

    </style>

    … regimen …
  • has nothing to do with interactive entry, which should be more in your “overlay” thinking, else the user is stumped … but …
  • can help with dynamically enhanced markup jobs that value add to the aesthetics of the webpage

… specifically showing the user “where they’ve been” amongst the “sea of letters” of our changed word_find_game.html Word Find Game you can also try below.

Today’s “Word Find Game” gets its inspirations from two sources …

Today we just do the “proof of concept” first draft word_find_game.html, because the Selection API highlighting really suits …

  • horizontal forwards
  • horizontal backwards

… word finding in the game, but we also want to allow for …

  • vertical down
  • vertical up
  • diagonal right down
  • diagonal right up
  • diagonal left down
  • diagonal left up

… which can be handled, but in a pretty kludgy way …
