Re: The beginning of The Rule of Ready

Thanks for the reference. I completely forgot about the money/blood bit. That's a fairly story integrated rule set. The real question is how close is too close (to where I would have to get permission from Akagi's owners). Admittedly, I've been musing about how I would implement some of the psychic ...

Re: The beginning of The Rule of Ready

I'm definitely open to ideas. Washizu mahjong--if I remember right-- is from the Anime Akagi, has 3/4 of tile tiles see through. Is that right? My second article is up: Toolsmithing . Also, I made a little test program to give my Shanten algorithm a workout. Here's some results: (It's worth nothing ...

The beginning of The Rule of Ready

A couple of years ago, I talked about making a Japanese Mahjong game. Well, I finished my Computer Science degree, and have gotten some professional experience. I felt it was time, so I've started an Open Source project on making one. I've named it The Rule of Ready . I'm posting about the project o...

Re: WWYD 2013-09-30

I'd discard the 4-bam to go for 7 pairs. I already have 5, and the two singles ( 5-crak and 7-crak ) aren't in the pond.

Re: So close and yet so far! (Well, not THAT close, but stil

yes unfortunely guys, i think that was so close, i never got such this hand. it must hurt you so much lol. but for example if you only tenpai 6 character before he kon 6 character, and when he make concealed kon 6 charcater, could you still rob it like 13 orphan does? As far as I know, robbing a co...

WWYD for Aug 10th

http://reachmahjong.com/en/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/wwyd6.png Here I go again. Seems like offense is okay this time around. The big issue is that the hand doesn't have a pair yet (well, not an isolated one, anyways). I'd discard the 3-bam , and leave in the possibility for Iipeikou and ...

Re: Beta Testing on Joyjan – RM Exclusive

If they're lookng at features, generated commentary with the Game Replays would be invaluable. (Turn 6 had a risky discard, East shows aggressive play, etc)

WWYD for Aug 3, 2011

http://reachmahjong.com/en/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/wwyd5.png This is my first time trying this out. Here goes nothing! 2-dot The 3-dot 4-dot 4-dot 4-dot 5-dot gives one set and a pair, with two away from tempai, with 4 different sets needing one more tile to complete them. That being s...

Re: Beta Testing on Joyjan – RM Exclusive

There needs to be better functionality in regards to multi-tabling. A feature to automatically tile all open windows similar to what most poker clients use would be excellent, also it would be nice if the window didn't auto full screen when a game starts. And also frankly, the English terms make me...

Re:If you want something done...

It\'s going to be a while for me to get that far. I\'m still in the planning stages. I\'m net even coding yet. Right now, I\'m working on the major classes of the game, and how they will work together. The algorithm stuff is pretty much from the top of my head... I\'ll let you know when I have a bit...

Re:If you want something done...

Some general guidelines (remember, this are being re-evaluated as the game unfolds: * if you\'re more than 4 away, play defensively * if calling a tile would make you further away than you are right now, do not call it (this includes calling kon) (ties would be for a non-low level ai) * if your hand...

Re:If you want something done...

Start tackling the game itself first. Got it. What I\'m thinking, for the AI, as far as big strategy, is two ways of evaluating the tiles in its hand: looking offensively, to complete the hand, and looking defensively, to try not to discard a winning tile. Have it re-evaluate the hand after every di...

Re:If you want something done...

Good points there. The question becomes, how do you build interest in the game? There\'s a chicken and the egg issue here. I\'m thinking that making it accessible is the way to go. That means the UI needs to present a lot of the thinking that a player would normally go through: which tiles am I wait...
