@Retrochallenge – Kinda Working

yahtzee1

I knew it would be a mistake to get involved in any sort of coding project alongside Urbancamo.  He released his flash new code in about 3 seconds flat while I was still trying to work out what my original variables do, and apparently for quite a few of them that’s absolutely nothing.

Still I think I’ve almost completely debugged Yahtzee now (see below), removed all unnecessary code and generally cleaned things up a bit.  I’ve been using Textedit on the Mac and copy and pasting it into BeebEm for testing.  Hopefully this coming week I’ll be able to transfer it over to the Master and run and edit it on a real machine.

I don’t think my approach to coding has changed a great deal since I was fifteen, it’s an interesting approach if nothing else.  Perhaps most importantly it works, although I have the distinct impression that I rely on five lines of code where someone who knew what they were doing would achieve the same result in one.

I’ve written a couple of new procedures, one to sort the dice and one to score the player’s final throw.  The scoring system is currently my own invention, if time permits I shall try to achieve something closer to the original game.

There is currently one fatal and moderately hilarious flaw to the program, specifically that the random number generator generates the same numbers every game.  Therefore whenever you load and run a new game you will always roll the same dice.  Bit of an issue really in a dice rolling game.

I don’t know at this stage whether the bug is in my code or in the way the BBC generates random numbers, the former seems more likely although I can’t for the life of me find it.  Further investigation is clearly required.

Here’s the code as it stands now, you can copy and paste it directly into BeebEm and it should run:-

One thought on “@Retrochallenge – Kinda Working

  1. That works really well mate – good stuff, I’m sure you’ve put a few long forgotten demons to bed. Oh, and that Airman was a complete PITA – it’s no wonder I was so keen to move on from BASIC!!
