My name is Stephen and currently an IT Professional doing administration and support, however I've always had a deep passion for software development. I've started mobile application development when I got my first Android phone in October 09. This blog catalogues all my progress with creating mobile apps for not only Android, but eventually iPhone, Blackberry and Windows Phone 7. Hope you enjoy.


Acey Deucey nearly ready for release!

Tagged: ,

It's almost here, the moment where I share my hard work with everyone. The only thing on my todo plate right now is create an icon [ I have an idea already ] and do the write ups for here and the market. Coding wise I think I'm good enough for a first release, not everything is working, but what isn't working is disabled and says "Coming Soon", the release will be given version 0.8 as looking back I've had 7 minor revisions in my original code.

0.1) Initial code, just had mathematics to calculate dealing/losing/winning
0.2) Getting card images to show instead of numbers
0.3) Adding status text on the gameplay screen
0.4) Changing the menu to create sub menus for options
0.5) Trying to implement an offline scoreboard, later removed for #8
0.6) Adding saved preferences
0.7) Changing some interface stuff, like images and colors
0.8) Implementing Scoreloop

Also I think I've come up with a way to implement the usual method of seeing the cards before betting used in standard Acey Deucey and applying it to the casino variant Red Dog that this game is based off of, implementing 2 methods of gameplay using the same code is just a lot of if/else statements so coding wise I know it can be done...gameplay wise I still need to test it out.
