Re: A 1000 game statistical analysis

It's pretty trivial to write bot code that recognizes when the player reaches and then discard their furiten and suji tiles. It seems that game developers are either lazy or, more probably, they realize that it's in their interests to make single-player games that are more fun to play by letting yo...

Re: Ready x Rīchi (Tentative title)

Recent experience with a budget PS3 game has highlighted the importance of visual cues for the player. There's no clear indication when an exhaustive draw has occurred - I expect at least a quick 流局 pop-up but instead players suddenly start displaying their tenpai hands and when the first hand is e...

Re: Ready x Rīchi (Tentative title)

I wouldn't think term by term control is really necessary (although of course you can add it if you want to), but having setting by category (such as menu, yaku, button, tile indices, round display, rules, chat, etc) to English/Japanese/romaji might be of interest. (Some programs have them in whate...

Re: Ready x Rīchi (Tentative title)

There is a feature I would like to see, actually, in any English-language riichi mahjong computer game! (So, anyone doing so please read this!) It is the option to set the language to Japanese and English together, which will display all terms used in mahjong in Japanese and everything else in Engl...

Re: Ready x Rīchi (Tentative title)

I'm back! Updates: Things are going well, Wii U dev kit up and running, my game has changed form a few times, and my Kickstarter begins November 29th, 2013! Programming wise, I'm working on the math and logic of coming up with a way to calculate how many tiles any given hand in any given game state ...

Re: The beginning of The Rule of Ready

Hi There,

I'm pretty far along in completing my game logic (I'm making a game too!), so I'll post contributions here whenever I can. Gotta support open source!

Re: Ready x Rīchi (Tentative title)

Small Updates! Hi all, Target platforms that I know I will release it on PC/Ouya, WIi U, and Android (sort of). I've been mapping out the game logic and data flow for the core game, communications, and some AI. Notice what those have in common? Programming, because that's what my forte is. Hopefull...

Hmph. Well that's lazy of them - there's plenty of incomplete-information (What Riichi Mahjong is) game AI information out there.

Re: FINALLY!!! Found and bought an automatic Mahjong table!

Nice table! The entire reason that I am making a mahjong game is that I wanted to have an automatic mahjong table of my own, but its - quite - spendy, and the wife would give me that same look, wavemotion lol. Writing up a fully customize-able game version is just a time-sink - and she got behind th...

Re: Ready x Rīchi (Tentative title)

You ask what feature we might like, and I will say, having a good open source one in C is my preference. I do not find a lot of issues with existing computer mahjong game, although there are some features I would like to see. I will refrain from mentioning them at this time. Thanks zzo38! That coul...

Yeah, I'm still waiting on their call. I replied to an email of theirs and asked whats up with the call and got a response saying "Yeah, there's a lot of devs applying, we'll call you as soon as we can at the time you dictated" (paraphrased). So now I have to watch my phone at Noon everyday for thei...
