Hangman's Noose


#1

@slyfox259 and myself are currently working on Western Murder Mystery. While he is working on the story I have been working on the puzzle code. What I need is somefeed back on the puzzle. There is only the opening text then the puzzle. There are three puzzles in all, the code for each are rather large and I did not want to add the rest until I was sure it is stable. It is a *rand call for the puzzles so may have to try a few times to get a different puzzle. Any feesback would be helpful thanks.

@lordirishdas I get this: line 116: Non-existent variable ‘ture’. It appeared only on easy so far and does not appear always.

Edit: appears on other difficulties too. My guess is it has to do with one of the puzzles.

@DSeg
It is puzzle 3 trying fix from phone. Thanks for pointing it out.

*unfortunately, I will have to wait until I can get on my laptop. Sorry for the bug.


#4

Solved one of the puzzles was told my answer was wrong. Chose more letters to finish the puzzle and it said it was right when they were the same answer.

@Scivener
Hmm…
so what I need to do is set up a choice buttons to pick the puzzles you are testimg, so as I can figure out where the problem maybe. So was it picking letters, or on the solve button that you encountered the error? What was the answer I should be able to track which one it was. Thanks.

@lordirishdas: I like your concept. The puzzle solving is my favorite. Love puzzles! Can’t wait for more! =D>

@Miki :smiley:

I am working on two other types of puzzles as well, not sure if I can pull it off in cs. I will be adding a few more hangmans tonight to further test the code.


#8

More then likely a @CJW question, but I’ll but it up here any way.
Here is the code I use in all 5 puzzles.


*choice 
 *if ((easy) and (e_clue)) #Clue
  *comment they get the full clue
  In 1877 William Shakespeare Hays wrote this song
  *line_break
  *set e_clue false
  *set u_clue true
  *goto top
 *if ((medium) and (m_clue)) #Clue
  *comment they get only part of a clue
  1877 song
  *line_break
  *set m_clue false
  *set u_clue true
  *goto top
 #Pick a letter
  What letter?
  *temp ans
  *input_text ans
  *comment convert input to lowercase for easier matching:
  *script temps.ans = temps.ans.toLowerCase();
  *goto l_1
 #Solve
  Your Guess?
  *temp solv
  *input_text solv
  *comment convert input to lowercase for easier matching:
  *script temps.solv = temps.solv.toLowerCase();
  *goto solve

Works fine in the first two puzzles, but the last three it fails to work. I have all five puzzles on line now. What am I doing wrong please. :frowning: Thanks

*edit the error is:
object (what ever the input) has no method ‘tolowerCase’


#9

I so have not a clue why the code failed in the last three. But simce the code works in the first two will reset the original code from them. :frowning: alot more coding to be done. So I am done for the night and will try this again tomorrow.


#10

This has me puzzled, but not complaining. I managed to fix the last three puzzles by simply copying back in the same code. There is something I am missing, at least I know how to fix it, just not sure why I had to fix it.

Regardless, give them awhirl and see if you find any bugs thanks :slight_smile:

All right, I have fixed several bugs and gaps I was missing. So I have the 5 hangman’s puzzles up and running. I also added a simple win death counter in the stats. Let me know if you have any bugs, thanks.

I am going to spend the next few hours working on a new puzzle type. Then will be spending the rest of the weekend trying to finish out the first section in my Ghost game. Cheers. :slight_smile:

#13

@MaraJade which puzzle were you doing please. Thanks


#14

Test 1 it was in line 900 something


#15

@MaraJade Thanks looking into it right now.

*edit
@MaraJade I have fixed the bug, I also added you can track the wins by type in the stats. Thanks for the bug find. :slight_smile:


#16

When i opened stats error line 4 dont exist variable e-winners


#17

@MaraJade I have fixed the bug, Thanks again


#18

Took some work but I now have a new puzzle type, unscramble the word. So let me know if you hit any bugs. Won’t be doing any more puzzles this week. Thanks all.
