Hey Fish the 5 minutes isn't a hard requirement for the amount of time someone would play your game is it?  I mean if it's more suitable to play the game for 3 minutes that's ok to right?

Question for you technical guys.  I'm having trouble wrapping my head around this idea of having a full screen 256x256 resolution on a 1023x768 desktop.  How have you guys done this?  I have a 256x256 window but if I want to go full screen what exactly have you done to get this to work?

Any thoughts/comments are appreciated.

well if you cant just set something close to the 256x256 resolution in fullscreen, you can just scale your final drawing surface. So when you're blitting to the screen, blit to a temporary surface instead and then blit that scaled to the screen. Im not sure what you're using so i cant help you with any specifics.

No that's good toastie.  That's the kind of info I was looking for.  Obviously you're not familiar with the tech I'm using.

Was messing around with render targets and inadvertently creating 4 copies of my game on one screen.  Heh.

My game's up, over here! http://forums.tigsource.com/index.php?topic=662.0  (hooray!)


But I haven't added controller support yet -- actually, I've got a question about that.  Should there be a standard "reset game" button, and/or a timeout for reset?  If it's going to be just people walking up to a game, playing till bored, then leaving ... is there any good way to let new players start at the game's beginning?

To half-answer my own question -- I made a menu that comes up when a player presses START, which seems pretty standard.  But, since it's sort of a 'kiosk' game, should the "quit game" option be obvious?  Obviously the people running the show will need to be able to quit, but perhaps random players should not be able to ...

Do we have to supply an original scale version of the game or simply the one blown up for visibility?
