13. Long time no blog! /*I: MyMathVentures on Windows XP and Ubuntu 9.10*/

leave a comment »

We’ve faced a lot of problems when we tried running our games on different operating systems aside from Ubuntu 8.04. But now, we’re able to run MyMathVentures on both Ubuntu 9.10 and Windows XP. Read the rest of this entry »

7. Last few Wii-ndang Wii-ks on MyMathVenturesHS

with one comment

As of present, we are still on our first game. So far the game has made use of the Wiimote’s accelerometer which allowed us to recognize ‘swing’ gestures. Also, we are able to use the Wiimote as our ‘mouse’; the movement of the mouse cursor depends on where the Wiimote is tilted. We were also able to ‘listen to events’ fired when a button of the Wiimote is pressed, held down, or released, just like how we handle events when we press the keys from the keyboard. Polynomials are still generated at random and, this time, negative coefficients are supported. We’ve implemented a timer for the game, although we still need to add a “timeout” message, or just set the timer to have some form of notification once time has run out. We’ve also had our ‘instruction page’ shown before the game starts. We’ve been into a lot of trouble (like working with very slow to no internet connection), however, before we arrived at these. But we learned some new (for us) things during those times. Read the rest of this entry »

Even before seeing them, I already knew from Joan that we already have our Wiimotes there. I was very excited. “Coding na…”, I said to myself.

5. Last Wii-k on MyMathVenturesHS… /*Part 1: RRL presentation*/

leave a comment »

I’m no good at writing documents and speaking in front of many people. I have poor proficiency in the English language. But I guess I have to overcome these weaknesses, or else… Practice, gulard, practice!!! T.T

Last Tuesday, we have presented our RRL’s to Dr. Caro. Here are the ones I have presented. We are required to present ten… Read the rest of this entry »

Here Wii Go!! <:-P

with 2 comments

The Wiimotes have finally arrived. There were four of them and a nunchuk. How we wished the console came with them, but for the moment, we’re quite contented to have just the controllers. 😛 Their  arrival must have inspired Dr. Caro a lot because next week we’d be doing a demo of our first mini game.

2. Wii-thout the Wii console

I, my partner Angelica, and the Joanne and Au (who will be developing mini-games for the elementary math level) have decided to use the Wii Remote, or simply Wiimote, as our game’s input device. Read the rest of this entry »
