Looks really nice! You should consider adding coins in too.

@GERD thanks ! Could you explain, what that should do ?

Or did you mean like: heads or tails ?

Exactly, heads or tails

Good idea: “Coins of Fate” :slight_smile:

Or just call it a two-sided die and add it to the current game ; )

@JO3RI, I think @GERD is asking for the app to have a random number generator (a die) for just 2 values, this could come in handy for some tabletop games.

From the D&D subreddit, Ending a Game on a Coin Flip.

Keep in mind @GERD, when you get your Arduboy, you can modify the source code for this game and add in the features you would like. If you use Github and fork the official repository for this game, then @Jo3ri will be able to use your changes if he so desires. At least other people will be able to use your forked version if they would like.

@GERD we added in the coin ! I switched the video in the top post and you can download the game via the same link. The only difference is, that it’s version 1.5 now.

edit: I forgot to change the banner, so I fixed it :wink:

I really like this. Its clever, and shows that there are useful applications beyond gaming… well… gaming on the device itself that is!

I remember playing with some of these dice in middle school before class… And then, there was also magic cards…

PSA

I went to the QR code in game to get some help for it and did the captcha. I was prompted for something about my calendar snd didn’t pay attention!!!

NOW I HAVE 30 DAILY ALERTS IN MY CALENDAR FOR THE FORSEEABLE FUTURE ABOUT MALWARE CHECKING AND WILL HAVE TO SOEND TIME CLEANING THEN ALL UP.

please fix your website and pay attention if you go to their website via the QR code.

That is all.

Cheers,
Tre


Update

So these are all from a ‘subscribed’ calendar. Not too bad to remove all at once.

I’m in an iPhone so not sure how android would be.

Just go settings → calendar → accounts and you’ll see and account that says ‘subscribed’. Make sure it’s not your main account snd then delete it.

That removed all these stupid alerts going off every 15 min lol

I’ve changed the link in the original post to point to the archived files in the Team ARG Museum on GitHub.

Good. The link I’m talking about came from the Ir code after I scanned it with my camera.

I’m still dealing with removing the actual events. Once I figure out a way I’ll update my original post in case anyone else accidentally falls for it too.

It think you mean QR code, which links to Team A.R.G.s former website. Unfortunately there are links to this site in many places. We’ll just have to warn people, as you have done, and try to deal with them as they are encountered.

Gotcha. Yeah the little box that pops up when you select help in game.

I updated the main post to show this but it’s actually a separate calendar with all the events. Was fairly easy to remove once I had time to track it down. The main post has the steps.

There are QR codes in the game (see ‘Help’). Perhaps these assets should be stripped out…?

Oh yeah, the original creator took down their website so it seems to be squatted by someone who is sending out annoying newsletters. Maybe we can take the QR codes out of the game, or at least put disclaimers.
