    ok, game suggestion for me?

    Helo, maybe some of you might remember that i had written a lil Connect 4 game a while ago. And now i want to write another simple game. Any suggestions? I don't plan to use any graphics libraries at the moment and the game should reside in the console. Also, it should not be as complicated as...like CHess (<cough>).

    Oh and the game should be quite fun too ^.^

    thats all, thnx.

    LOL.

    MMM..making connect 4 again would be too boring i guess.

    RPG eh? Well sooner or later i will make an RPG game, but maybe not now. I don't have time to think out a story line and plot and stuff like that. Actually, im not good at that sorta thing. On the other hand, im more interested in making games with AI.

    Oh, i know. I always wanted to make a maze game. But if im right, maze generation is pretti hard to do?

    I'm on the same boat you are, finished my connect four game and looking for something else to do, but decided to spend more time updating the AI on my connect four, like adding a learning function where it learns from it's mistakes. Othello can be difficult from what I hear since you can't just tell the comp to find the move that produces the most piece changes. The player who usually wins is the one who is losing, losing, losing, then suddenly takes over at the end. Hard to teach a comp that, but makes for a great challenge!

    Other games possibly:
    Mancala
    Bow
    Go
    Risk

    Hey man, that one hour game thing was cool. I think you are capable of making a badass console pong. Make d4t 5h17 1337.

    I was just kidding about that .

    I remember how dissapointed you were when you saw that my maze game only had one maze. On my Allegro version of the game I used much better methods and just included a few premade mazes. But if you did try to use random maze generation you would probably learn quite a bit, at least I think you would.

    but decided to spend more time updating the AI on my connect four, like adding a learning function where it learns from it's mistakes.
    That is really awesome, man. What are you doing so the AI is able to learn from it's mistakes? That sounds pretty difficult.

    And yeah you're 'one hour game' was pretty cool, Nutshell.

    A game idea I have for you that would include doing some AI work would be to have the player try to get past the enemy. The player would be on the left side of the screen and the enemy on the right side of the screen. The enemy would try not let you get past 3/4 of the way through the screen by running into you. You could have multiple levels and each level the AI could be more competent and you could have more enemies. You would for sure learn a lot about AI on that game.
