I like the Hangman but, the jigsaw one not really interested, i find a 2 piece jigsaw boring, so anything with more than that is mind numbing to me.
A great addition to the forum though.

Thanks for the feedback.
At least you know not to bother clicking on the 'puzzle' link.

Hopefully some will like it

For anyone missing the Slots game, I have cut down the code to free it from the Grumps system. It is now a stand-alone game where you are given 100 points at the start of the game to gamble with. You don't need to be logged in to play and the game no longer uses your bank balance or your username.

You can give it a whirl here - http://tinyurl.com/lcfslots

It's still work-in-progress and I may yet be changing a few things when I get time.

I hope Admin doesn't mind me posting the link. Please remove this post if you feel the need.

Hmm...

Works fine in Firefox on my pc but locks up after a win on my mobile running Chrome.

I'll have to check out the code again. It's probably a remnant left over from the Grumps handler being interpreted differently in my mobile browser.

I did say it was work in progress! . :D

Ok. Sorted on mobile Chrome browser, but for some reason it's not playing the sound when the 'Win!' splash appears.

HTML5 audio tags are shit. Bring bacj Flash! :D

Just had a go at the jigsaw puzzle.

Even on the 'Very Easy' level (only 30 pieces) it took me bloody ages! One advantage though is that the grandkids can't hide a piece while I'm doing it! :mdr3:

Thanks for trying it out Reg. :super:

Unfortunately, due to the change in theme of the forum I think it would take a lot of time to get it working with the Grumps system again. Also, there seems to be no interest in the Grumps in general apart from a handful of members, and that's why I have made the Slots independent of the forum with all references to Grumps removed from the game. I agree it could be made a bit more exciting though and I'll continue working on it whenever I get the time.

I can fix that Mike.

As the game no longer uses forum usernames (it no longer accesses the database), all I'd need to do would be to provide a very simple login system. Logged in users would then start the game with their last pot of winnings, which would be logged on the server for retrieval each session.

You wouldn't necessarily have to use your forum username either, you could have a new username just for the slots, along with an avatar. I may also add a 4-digit PIN keypad to the login screen to uniquely identify returning members.

I could even add a 'Highest Scores' table to increase competition between users. :diable:

All of this is basic stuff, but it's just a case of finding the time for it at the moment.

Just now, I'm looking into better methods for eliminating the lag in the sound effects, without resorting to using Flash.

While I'm on ............. Would anyone like to see a feature that would improve the game in any way? Let me know and I'll consider it. Let's see if we can make a game that people will want to play! :super:

Can you introduce FREE SPINS, for example you have to roll 3 ' FREE SPINS ' then you are awarded 5, 6 or 7 free spins ?
Also, introduce ' BONUS ', same as above but, you have a go on a Roulette wheel, whatever it lands on that's what you get ?
Or, can you get a Roulette wheel game going ?
