this is my first "real" game in c++. It is connect four, only beefed up with features and options. At this stage, only a couple of the options work, and only a few modes work correctly (that's right, there are different modes of play). There are also some bugs in places that i am aware of, and will fix.
i have included the executable and the source in the zip.
The source consists of main.cpp, and engfuncs.h which has some of the options menu stuff in it and other functions that are used by main.cpp. I haven't commented much of the code as i didn't expect anyone else to read it, so you might not get how i used the functions etc at first. But, maybe you will..
Anyway, here it is. This is obviously not my final version.
I think i should explain the modes first...
Standard is obviously standard connect four.
4 player is the same thing, except 4 people will be playing!
2 on 2 is one team versus another, and you must connect your pieces to your team mate's pieces to win. this mode is not done yet.
Iron man mode does not end when you get a connect four. Instead, you get a point for each one. when the board fills up, the player with the highest amount of points wins.
Iron man x2 is the same as iron man, except there are 2 full sized boards to fill up. This mode is not done.
2 on 2 mode is not at all done yet, and all that exists of it is the team selection menu when you start. after that, the game completely bugs up and gets screwy because i haven't finished it yet.
at almost any time during the game when you are allowed to type something in, you can also type in a word to perform the action you want. while in a game, you can type back, reset, or restart to go back to the main menu.
Comments and suggestions are welcome. Thanks!
