so uh if you think 2019 lynne makes bad programs
this was 2015 lynne's assignment for IPT

@lynnesbian my school offered it accelerated so I did it 2012-13 and then did SDD 2014-2015 which was a massive loophole because they’re nearly the same course on theory and me and my friends could complete the programming assignments with our eyes closed. Was fun aside from yknow the whole trans & depression thing that year
@lynnesbian somewhere deep in my backups I have the assignments I did in PHP/MySQL instead of MS Access out of spite
@lynnesbian this reminds me of shovelware games people could buy on generically branded CD-ROMs in the '90s and '00s 😂
@lynnesbian haah waaw i should dig up the Bejeweled clone i made for my final advanced higher computing coursework in school, it's similarly Extra
@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 this was one of the first things I saw upon joining Mastodon and i feel safe in saying it's a masterpiece
@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
