Idea for the gnotravex new game screen (30.99 KB, image/png)
2011-12-20 23:49 UTC, Robert Ancell

Description Robert Ancell 2011-11-27 23:04:29 UTC
Use a new game screen that shows the game options at the start of a game.  This means that preferences dialogs for game difficulty can be removed and resolves the issue that options can be changed while a game is in progress.  See the Sudoku start screen for ideas.

Idea for the gnotravex new game screen

An idea for a new game screen - show the maximum size and click on the bottom right to select the size of the board.  This is a similar method to how tables are commonly created in word processors.  Needs some feedback to indicate this is how to select the board size.  This also allows thin boards, not sure if this is a good or bad thing (e.g. 2x4).

Reassessing whether we really want new game screens for all of our games....

We decided that placing the board size option in the app menu, as opposed to a preferences dialog or a new game screen, was actually a good idea. The only problem here is that there is no warning dialog that changing the board size will restart the current game. This is bug #736238.
