Inspiration is coming few and far between with these projects, but when I do get the urge to work on them I make pretty good strides towards my end goal.

I worked on the game a little bit yesterday, I got the main game structure working, with statuses to tell you what part of the game you are in, which is all part of the games flow. The next step is to import all of the question and answer data into the game itself. I already have code written that takes the HTML files from J! Archive¬†¬†and parses the data. Right now i’d say I’m about 40% complete.


Ideas for the game:
Have a random game load or choose one yourself, maybe by number, maybe by a menu with a list of all of the games?
Ken Jennings challenge mode: Play all of the games that Ken Jennings did, see if you can beat his dollar or game record.

Well, it’s lunch time at work, more to come later!

Jeopardy, 6/4/12

Worked on the game a little bit tonight. Spent all of my time writing a function that prints out a question in a neat and readable manner, below is an example of what a question will look like (this one is very easy!). Feels good to get that function wrote, small steps on my way to a big product.

I also thought of a way to manage the game play while riding to work this morning. I wrote it down and plan to implement it soon. I also need to do some more graphics and get all of the question data loaded into the game.
