Dimming Lighting Effect

CANT SEE SHIT

CANT SEE SHIT CAPTAIN

Finally, the lamp brightness is actually apparent now and if your lamp dims too much and you don’t have an idea of where you are you’re probably shafted

Otherwise… still working on questions I guess

 

Also decided I’m done drawing for this thing

Minor Code Updates, Quality Increases

 

I don’t get questions purely at random now;
this ensures I get all of the questions once before I get any question more than once

static List<int> NumberList = new List<int> ();
static int GetQuestionIndex() {
if (NumberList.Count == 0) {
FillList();
}
int RandomIndex = Random.Range (0, NumberList.Count);
int ReturnValue = NumberList [RandomIndex];
NumberList.RemoveAt (RandomIndex);
return ReturnValue;
}
static void FillList() {
NumberList.Clear ();
for(int i = 0; i < QuestionList.questions.Length; i++) {
NumberList.Add (i);
}
}


It’s Up

Time for testing and continuing question refinement.  Jesus christ these questions take forever to go over

Dark Souls Covenants Mug

Went to a ceramic-painting shop and painted all the Covenant symbols on a mug. I can’t wait to see how it turns out; the pink is supposed to be bright orange and the yellow is supposed to be… more vivid

Question Modes, Freebase Question Generator

Don't pick math dude

Don’t pick math dude

Made two buttons that go after the title screen to choose Trivia Mode or Math Mode; basically it decides whether to give the Freebase generated trivia questions or the math questions I’ve been putting together all this time.

Well gee I wonder what it is

‘Finished’ the question generator in that it’ll function with some oversight.  At first, the idea was to use the MediaWiki API to get a list of random topics, then map those to freebase, then use the freebase API to get related words and the summary text.  Today I decided it would be best to just manually compile a list of topics that are available on Freebase by name, and generate the questions from the hand made list of topics.  I figured this way, I’d avoid including things I didn’t want to include; the number of articles on Freebase is far far higher than the number of topics I need for this game.  I think I want a few hundred, and I’ll probably stop there.  I just finished implementation so right now there’s only 24:

questions.add(ft.buildQuestion(“Electron”));
questions.add(ft.buildQuestion(“Derivative”));
questions.add(ft.buildQuestion(“Sputnik”));
questions.add(ft.buildQuestion(“ISS”));
questions.add(ft.buildQuestion(“Buckminsterfullerene”));
questions.add(ft.buildQuestion(“Hadron”));
questions.add(ft.buildQuestion(“Mount Everest”));
questions.add(ft.buildQuestion(“Mount McKinley”));
questions.add(ft.buildQuestion(“Mongolia”));
questions.add(ft.buildQuestion(“Io”));
questions.add(ft.buildQuestion(“Ares”));
questions.add(ft.buildQuestion(“Archimedes”));
questions.add(ft.buildQuestion(“Galapagos Islands”));
questions.add(ft.buildQuestion(“Horseshoe Crab”));
questions.add(ft.buildQuestion(“London Heathrow Airport”));
questions.add(ft.buildQuestion(“Pegasus”));
questions.add(ft.buildQuestion(“Florence”));
questions.add(ft.buildQuestion(“Kremlin”));
questions.add(ft.buildQuestion(“Pyongyang”));
questions.add(ft.buildQuestion(“Eiffel Tower”));
questions.add(ft.buildQuestion(“Phobos”));
questions.add(ft.buildQuestion(“Christopher Columbus”));
questions.add(ft.buildQuestion(“Zinc”));
questions.add(ft.buildQuestion(“Zirconium”));

The source for the generator is in Java-
but it’s very specific to my needs.  The question object contains question text, 4 answers (one of which is correct) in an array, and the index in the array that contains the correct answer as an int.
It creates a C# class file for use with the game.

Pretty glad I got something usable out of all that digging into the MediaWiki and Freebase APIs.  I still need to finish unfortunately… Today was my planned release date but it’ll have to wait AT LEAST until I polish the cut-in art and complete the trivia topic list.  At least up to 200 topics.
