• Could you please check out my game?


    Guys, let me advertise my sentimental journey one more (and the last) time here. :) Recently I managed to add the JavaFX incarnation of the game I had written in 1992 to the AUR repository. This is my first desktop application for many years, and I made it an open source project.

    It would be great if you could install the eist-returns package from AUR, and tell me if it works well for you. It would be even better if someone found it funny enough to contribute to the GitHub project. I’d also be grateful for your votes for the package in the AUR (thanks to whoever voted first!).

    You’ll find more info on wiki pages.

    Many thanks to the forum team, especially @Keegan and @joekamprad for help at setting up the development and testing environment.

    Thanks! Actually I doubt if it’s possible to make kids play the game. It seems that years ago, when I was a heavy gamer, games were more difficult. Contemporary children, as e.g. my younger daughter, refuse to plan before playing. She just tried to be speedy enough, what becomes Mission Impossible at levels 4+.

    Good work on the Github wiki page also, looks fantastic!!!

    Good to know that at least one man saw this. It’s the part of each project I hate most. :)

    Just tried it out (all the way past level one:smile:) and it seems to work perfectly! Great work!

    I would love to, but sadly I do not know Java and am already busy with my own ISO:disappointed:.

    Thank you!

    Keep trying, never give up. In the end, you will find that it was all worth it

    Sure, first things first. I keep an eye out on your job.

    Because I’m an old programmer who wrote the whole engine from scratch. :)

    No, not yet :) But yes - coding the first version in the dormitory, behind the Iron Curtain is a material for a longer story. But we would need beer.

  • awesome.

  • AUR package just updated to 0.9.0-1. New in this version: the Hall of Fame cloud service. Login to:

    • sync the game state between computers (also Windows build available),
    • compare your results to other players, as well in-game, as on the website.

    Please, take a look and tell me what you think.

  • A really short request: could you please just install and run? I’ve received an error report from another Arch-based distro, which I can not reproduce here in any way. Simple tell me: “installs and works” or “it doesn’t work”. Thanks in advance.

  • Sure:grinning:. Doing so right now…

  • @Keegan Thank you very much! I’ll be having hard time to reproduce and fix the bug which doesn’t happen to me…

    Implementing the cloud service made me dust off my php+MySQL knowledge, not in use for years. It was funny, to my surprise. :)

    Thanks again for testing!

  • Welcome! It was the least I could do. And thank you for this game! Any new package is welcomed in the Linux community:grinning:. It’s the users that keep it alive after all.

  • Yep, I used to think so, too, but it’s damned difficult to gain a single user. Too many developers and apps to choose from. I used to think it only concerned Android apps, but I was wrong. However, this project is just my sandbox, I’m still learning new things.

  • On players’ request I’ve just modified the game play a little bit. Initial speed has been lowered, and will increase gradually on each level. Also some keyboard shortcuts were requested, so here you are: you can select arrows by pressing A for left, W for up, D for right, and S for down. The X key selects clearing arrows. The 0.9.1-1 package already available in AUR.

  • Alright ladies and gentlemen. The 1.0 eist-returns package has just been pushed to AUR. Thanks again to everyone who contributed to fixing bugs and to the UI improvement. Finally thanks to edskeye for the title graphics.
