so uh if you think 2019 lynne makes bad programs
this was 2015 lynne's assignment for IPT
if you really want to play this on your own machine here you go https://cloud.lynnesbian.space/s/dfdDPgcN9EbyeJK
@lynnesbian this reminds me of shovelware games people could buy on generically branded CD-ROMs in the '90s and '00s 😂
@lynnesbian my favourite part is at the beginning when it says "now loading" and definitely just sleeps for a couple seconds because what could it possibly be loading
@loke i guess i may as well release the source
even if it is really badly written visual basic made before the teacher had told us what an array was
@lynnesbian What does that slider under the current player indicator do?
Also, how do you implement this without arrays? A huge set of if statements?
@loke the slider indicates who's turn it is, it moves to 2/4 if it's players 2's turn for example
and yes, lots of if statements
@lynnesbian I think the reason why I love this so much is because it represents the innocence of a newboe programmer. The first project before one has started to become so bogged down in software architecture decision and visual design.
It's the playfulness of it that really shows why programming is fun. I wish I had my first code, but I usually didn't even save my work. I just turned the computer off and started a new project when I turned the computer back on.
@lynnesbian since these things move in cycles this is actually what good application design will look like in ten years
@lynnesbian oh my LORD I accidentally clicked play on this and kept scrolling, and I cannot describe to you the thought process that I just had after hearing a windows "ding" in response to clicking something on my debian machine lmao
@polychrome it's production music used by a few nick shows, including ren and stimpy and spongebob (i'm pretty sure it's used in the krusty krab training video)
@polychrome not that i know of, no
people have compiled unofficial "soundtracks" to ren and stimpy that contain a lot of similar music, that's the best i can think of unfortunately
