It's been ages since I posted here :O But I'm back! (well, I have been for a month, just haven't posted <.< >.>) and just wanted to let people know about a Mahjong Wait Quiz I put together, initially for my own study, but figured it would be useful to others as well. It still needs a bit of UI work and a few more features, but the basic functionality is there.

I'm planning on getting it deployed on Android as well eventually if there is enough interest (maybe iOS too, though that's more difficult). Feel free to leave feedback/comments here, or on the page (or PM me if you don't feel comfortable providing it publicly)

Seems nice. :)

It could help to make the interface smaller, so it would fit in the window.

Thanks for checking it out! Would you happen to have a screenshot of the issue you're having with the UI? It should in theory scale with window size properly. (Unless this is about the word "Hand" getting cut off by the window, in which case that should be fixed now) I also pushed out a new minor version last night which added a chance for the hand to not be tenpai (this can be toggled off in the settings menu).

Hi Ozball;
Good to see you back, where you been for 4-1/2 years?
I've made a lot of progress since then, which naturally, you had a hand in helping me along.
Took a look at your wait quiz, reminded me of an app called speed chinitsu, which I posted about a few months after you left, back in 2014.
In fact, you are mentioned in the 2nd post of that short thread. ... tsu#p58211

In short... Life happened :roll: Had to pull back on Mahjong for a bit while I got other stuff sorted out. And moved back to Aus in the middle of it all. All this has meant I've dropped off a lot in my mahjong skills, but working on getting them back!

Ah, I hadn't seen the Speed Chin'itsu one before! I was originally inspired by a video I saw on Japanese Mahjong twitter of someone playing a similar app at an alarmingly fast rate. Can't seem to remember where I saw the video though :( But when I looked for the app at the time, it was apparently a Japan only app. And possibly iPhone only as well. I wanted something I could use on my Android, so I made one myself! (part of the 4 1/2 years involved studying to be a game developer)

Speed Chin'itsu seems to have a number of features I plan to add to the Mahjong Wait Quiz eventually, including a Time Attack mode. I also want to get it out on the Google Play Store and possibly the AppStore as well, but wanted to test the waters first.

So if anyone has any suggestions or ideas for features they'd like to see, just let me know! :D

Also thanks for the link to that thread! I had a feeling I'd written down the two player version rules somewhere, but couldn't remember where!
