Title: BYO games plugin :)
Post by: byo on June 16, 2006, 03:50:44 am
For all RC3-waiters, overcoded etc. I've coded small entertainment support for C::B.

Currently it supports one game which I called C::B-Tris (based on one of the most popular game in history).

I'm attaching sources (should be unpacked to src/plugins/contrib directory to compile properly, tested on MinGW with PCH support, haven't tested other platforms) and binaries (tested with 15.06.06 Nightly, just put dll into share/CodeBlocks/plugins directory).

Have fun ;)

BTW. While testing I've got over 30000 score :D now your turn ;)

Nice :)

BTW, did you happen to read this (http://forums.codeblocks.org/index.php?topic=1689.0) thread? :P

Just one thing: it shows :B-Tris in the notebook (notice the missing C).

this is wonderfull

my opinion : we should add it to the svn repos and distribute with the nightlies, that is if you and the big boss agree ...

[EDIT] : here's a first support question :
 - how do I pause the game ??

It automatically pauses if it looses focus.
It also automatically resumes when it gains focus again.

Hmm, this should be a bug in C::B. It probably thinks it's the start of a path (C:) and clips it...

Few bugs fixed.

Pause/unpause with 'p' key

Just one thing: it shows :B-Tris in the notebook (notice the missing C).

Hmm, this should be a bug in C::B. It probably thinks it's the start of a path (C:) and clips it...

This is because C::B removes path in file name, and in this case C: is the drive number. It's already fixed :D

I was also wondering about one option - time limit. That would work like this - if playing more than 10 minutes, games is paused for one hour and can not be unpaused in that time (this feature just to prevent playing instead of coding ;) )

After 20 full lines, there's level-up and speed-up (speed-up is up to 10th level, after that speed does not grow, but it's hard to play on that speed)

i have one suggestion why don't make pong game, snake game  :D

shouldn't be hard to do ;) propably easier that C::B-Tris :D.

Nice work byo. I just scored 15670 points after testing it a bit (I know it is a ridiculous result :D). Anyway, I have a small suggestion. May be you can add some kind of difficulty level, in the sense of more point scored more difficult becomes the game. As it is, it is quite easy :).

A thing I do not like it the message go back to work. To have each x minutes to close it is quite annoying.... :).

And there was one time a discussion (http://forums.codeblocks.org/index.php?topic=1689.0) about a IRC plugin (as Ceniza pointed out)....

Well, in that case you could download a stand-alone variant. If you have C::B open you usually want to work, right? ;-) But you (of course) can change the interval in the constructor of byoCBTrisEditor (m_BackToWorkTimer(1)). One minute is really too hard... ;-)

Hello,

I have tried the Plugin under Gentoo 2006.0 with C::B rev2577 and it works, but not the keyboard. I can press whatever key I want, it does not work (well only the P for Pause works :)).

My keyboard is set as Generic 105-key (Intl) PC and the layout is German.

I will build a .deb package and see if it will work on Ubuntu Dapper.

Best wishes,
Michael
Title: Re: BYO games plugin :)
Post by: Der Meister on June 16, 2006, 07:11:00 pm
I can confirm this. Gentoo, C::B revision 2576, wxGTK 2.6.2, gcc 3.4.6, Generic 105-key keyboard with german layout. The pause-key works but no other keys produce any reaction.

Byo, very good timing. Today I was in no mood for serious development  :oops: . So I took the liberty and added that reminder message :).

OK, I see that things are getting out of control ;)
Back-To-Work Timer is going to stay, maybe in changed form, but it will be here :)

And bugs with keyboard handling on linux may be caused by unusual keyboard processing. I use ::wxGetKeyState() for arrows which should work fine. But processing is started fomr EVT_CHAR event and here may be the problem. In windows wxWANTS_CHARS flag had to be added to process extra keys. wxGTK may be incompatible with wxMSW here. Does anyone have any experience with processing Char/Key events for arrow keys ? (I tried EVT_KEY_DOWN but it seemed not to process extra keys or use internal system key codes, but it may also be my bug becuase it was 2.00 AM ;))

I'll try to do all updates / fixes after weekend because my friend is going to marry tomorrow.

Congratulations to your friend :).

I have tried on Ubuntu Dapper (rev2577, wxGTK 2.6.1, GCC 4.0.3) and it does not work too (only the P for Pause works).

Anyway, enjoy the party and do not stress too much for an update. We can wait some days, or :)?

- blocks leave a trail (they color every position they passed)
- background is not black

note : Cb itself does not look that sparkling on suse (well at least in my install)

Question : how do I create a screenshot of the active window/application ??

You can use ksnapshot. It provides three or four options what to get on the screenshot.

EDIT: It should be, if installed, under Utilities/Desktop in the K-menu

(I tried EVT_KEY_DOWN but it seemed not to process extra keys or use internal system key codes, but it may also be my bug becuase it was 2.00 AM ;))
I don't think that the keyboard processing is the problem. I just replaced the wxGetKeyState calls by a call to event.GetKeyCode() and used the keys A, S, D and W for navigation instead of the arrow keys. Nothing changed - the game respondes to the key P but not the others. As the way the keycode is checked was the same for alle 5 keys I don't think that the keyboard processing causes the problems. Anyway, I don't know what it is yet, too...
After more investigation I found out that wxGetKeyState doesn't work on Linux. I have no idea why but this seems to be the problem.
This is not difficult to solve in byoCBTrisContent::OnChar because wxGetKeyState(WXK_UP) can be replaced by event.GetKeyCode() == WXK_UP and so on - this works. But the real problem exists in byoCBTrisContent::UpdateChunkPos: How could these call to wxGetKeyState be replaced?

I believe the previous post related to the tetris game rather than editing. ;)

Anyway, it's been said before, but I'll repeat this any time. Many weeks ago, I suspected that this CPU usage may come from many update_ui messages (which seems plausible if you look at their number). I made a patch and asked the people who were suffering from particularly high CPU usage to test it and verify if the patch made anything better. Michael even made a binary build for everybody's convenience.

User follow-up was ZERO.

Thus, if everybody just keeps saying "this sucks" but nobody is willing to invest 3 minutes to help confirm a probable cause, then honestly, I can only reply "well, then it is not important".

Code::Blocks uses update_ui messages to keep the state of the menu items and toolbars in sync. The code changes necessary to do without these would be massive. You will understand that I am not starting such an endeavour based merely on a vague idea that it might possibly have to do with a problem.

Thomas, if you are talking about this (http://forums.codeblocks.org/index.php?topic=2869.msg24084#msg24084) post.  I tried that and it has no effect.  Which kind of makes sense because I don't think cbEditor had any.  I will continue the discussion in that thread.

Thanks Byo, great plugin, great game as well !

with the actual project setup i got problems during debugging, therefore i've changed the
"working dir" and "host application" pathes in the project file

also i've added to rotate clockwise when Shift-key is pressed together with the UP-key

added some Guidelines too

Ok, some major changes in games plugin. It has back-to-work timer included in base game class.
More than 10 minutes of play does force pause for one hour. Additionally after 3 hours of work it does remind to take a break :)

Another thing is that I've made it working on linux (no overdraw / keyboard problems) but I've had troubles with key-up event. It's sometimes called with quite delay (I haven't figured why) making the game to behave like with broken keyboard where keys stay down when pressed.

For me, additional guidelines make game easier ;). It's good to sometimes put chunk in wrong position and try to fix that ;). I propse to add this as game option. But as far as there's no option system, it will be added with delay.

with the actual project setup i got problems during debugging, therefore i've changed the
"working dir" and "host application" pathes in the project file

What settings do you use ? I usually start debugging C::B project instead of plugin's one. But if there's easier solution why not use it ;)

i propose to implement a Hot-key ( Shift-Q for example ) to toggle the GuideLines display, i use the Shift-key combination,
because i always have one finger on the left Shift key to toggle the rotation-direction if needed, when pressing the UP key.


What settings do you use ? I usually start debugging C::B project instead of plugin's one. But if there's easier solution why not use it ;)

with the configuration you've used in your project setup

working_dir ="..\..\..\devel"
host_application = ".\codeblocks.exe"

the debugger gets confused with the needed path to codeblocks.exe (at least it occurred for me)


my project settings are also in the patch, they are

working dir = "."
host_application   = "..\..\..\devel\codeblocks.exe"

then you can start debugging directly from the byogames project.


Title: Re: BYO games plugin :)
Post by: tiwag on June 20, 2006, 02:50:04 pm
ok, next patch, which applies to svn rev 2586 and
uses the Hot-key "g" or "G" to toggle the Guidelines display.

on Ubuntu 5.10 and is also really "slow" compared to the Windows version
running on the same computer.

Thx for info.
Whats your CPU ? And what do you mean by saying "slowly" ? Does it work slowly or respond for keyboard with delay ? I've tested on gentoo and it worked almost fine for me.

Hello,

I have a PIII 500MHz and around 500MB RAM.

The games works slowly and responds slowly (with delay).

Best wishes,
Michael

Hello,

I have just tried C::B rev 2592 on the same machine, but with Gentoo and it seems that now the game works fine. It is no more slow and perfectly playable :). Anyway, I will give a try on Ubuntu Dapper too.

Best wishes,
Michael

I played several minutes amd close the game. After some time I saw message "Stop playing and begin to work" (or something like this) :) I closed message but it popuped again. Only closing C::B helped with this problem :)

It has already been fixed.

No, it won't be removed. But it will be configurable in future.

About the timer, people who wants to play Tetris through a programming IDE instead of directly may actually want it. But yes, it should be configurable. Everyone else who just want to play the game without interruption can still do so directly since there is no shortage of free clones out there.
