Computer Science is not simply programming

The last time we presented our major problem was the screen resolution of the monitor.  It appears that our images do not rescale accordingly especially when we shift our VMWare to full screen.  The results were really bizarre –  the bottom panel for the polynomial cannot be seen, it may or may not run at all depending whether the NullPointerException for the displayModesMatch() will be thrown or not, the game area itself remains on the left side of the panel resulting in a very wide background image.  So, to be able to present well, we just “mirrored” our monitor so that it appears as is when projected.  Nevertheless, we still got a “good” from Sir Rom! 😀

Here are the recommendations:

: An option for the teacher to enter his or her own set of questions.

: Student profile

: Save everything in a file (but we were still thinking whether we will store the questions together with their corresponding    answers)

: Start the second game! XD

Since meetings with Dr. Caro have not pushed through lately, we also decided to consult our second storyboards to Sir Rom and Ma’am Weng as well.  We are glad that they seem to like our ideas.  We will just wait for further comments and recommendations when the time comes that we are presenting it.

first game done?

leave a comment »

We are almost done with our first game, and we also started packaging the classes that we are using including those that we are going to test for “reusability”. We just had a problem when running the program on VMware, but it does run properly on other machines. We still can’t figure out what’s wrong. It does not return errors, so we’re really clueless about it not running on VMware.

Android Device

leave a comment »

On Wednesday, I will be turning over the Android device to the lab for your testing. I will be removing the SIM (so please put in a Globe/Smart prepaid SIM – couldn’t get Sun SIM to work). Unfortunately, this device has a defective wifi radio – which will render our app testing a bit more expensive considering that we need to connect to the internet via 3G. Yeah, can’t complain since this is free. 🙂 I am still trying to procure another one for the lab – just waiting for Smart to make the HTC Magic available as prepaid.

developing on imac

leave a comment »

alas! the imacs have arrived. now we have a nicer machine to use in developing our project.  we were so ecstatic that the moment the imacs arrived, we set them up and installed required updates.  But still, we(the MyMathVentures group at least) have to install VMWare, which needs license so I asked Sir Rom where we can get the license for free. Fortunately, there’s this academic license that we can use. I now have the license key, thanks Sir Rom. Will install VMware tomorrow with my groupmates. Since we are developing on ubuntu, i hope we don’t have problem when it’s already installed. 😀

XP on iMac

with one comment

Since VMWare was already installed on iMac (thanks to ruzette! :D), my partner and I will try to install Windows XP on it. Kinespell doesn’t run smoothly on iMac: the graphics and button are quite a mess, so we need to install another OS and that will be XP. ..

What’s iMac for if we can’t maximize its use? hehe 😛

Sleepless Nights, Software Options and Project Demo

Since Parallels Desktop is proprietary and I only have 13 days left before the trial key expires, I decided to switch back to VMWare. After all, VMWare’s much more stable in terms of hardware support than in VirtualBox.(Although, in Ubuntu, there exists a bug wherein you won’t be able to access the Mac folders) Also, I haven’t tested the iSight Driver on Windows XP using VMWare yet so I might as well try it.
