Do you think I could just leave this part blank and it'd be okay? We're just going to replace the whole thing with a header image anyway, right?

Minesweeper v1.4

Since my computer doesn't have Minesweeper (only on VirtualBox), I decided to make my own.
Programming took around 4 hours, thanks to this game engine
Also added customizable size and mine count to make it more fun (but abnormally small or huge values sometimes crash)
https://github.com/MWstudios/Minesweeper

Version 1.4:

  • Added a settings window.

  • I've created another generating algorithm, so you can now choose between two of them:
    The old one which calculates the chance of a mine, and a new, much faster one, which spawns the mine at a random location.

  • Did some optimizations and the game can now handle even bigger maps. I managed to play on a 600×300 map with 40.000 mines, but it was responding very slowly.

  • Speaking of generating mines, I added a counter which shows the generating progress.

  • When you click on an empty tile in original Minesweeper, it exposes all empty tiles in the area. This Minesweeper has now an option to do that too.

Re: Minesweeper v1.4

I really love minesweeper, so seeing this actually makes me very happy. Bravo.

(Edit): It's too bad that every single one of my anti-virus soft-wares YELLED AT ME SAYING "VIRUS DETECTED. VIRUS DETECTED."

...

Still, Bravo.

That's the engine's problem I've been experiencing for a long time
I solved it by making an analysis exception in the folder where I download others' creations

afaik its because some virus detection programs work by assuming all programs are viruses until they can be uploaded to their servers to be tested more thoroughly, so when you release your own program its likely to be detected for a while until its tested.

Yeah I know - it's due to the fact that it's an unknown publisher and my anti-virus softwares don't like small things like that.
I still obviously downloaded it and played around on it.

Bravo.

Re: Minesweeper v1.4

Note: It might be a bit annoying to always download a new version.
If I find out how to make an Auto Downloader, I'll upload it in version 1.4, but I highly doubt it.

Re: Minesweeper v1.4

You don't need to worry, just do what you feel happy doing.
Great work, I'm glad that you are testing things out. Can't wait to see what you do next!

Re: Minesweeper v1.4

I used to use CTF 2.5 for making apps and games, still use it for minor games but for now, I'm trying to learn everything from scratch by using visual studio. That way I can understand everything from the ground up. Nice game btw, loved minesweeper back when it was on XP.

Well the engine what I use is theoretically C++ in images, and you learn it faster than actual C++.
It's over 20 years old (updates from 1997 to 2012) but it still checks out, so I recommend it.
Maybe at some point I'll go find out what all those functions mean in actual C++ and immediately switch to it
