Fortune Engine and Fortune Hunter

This post is a bit out of date, but I Finally got the FortuneEngine it's own repository last weekend. The Fortune Hunter repository has grown a lot over the summer due to the vast amount of art and art testing. I figured it was not very friendly to have the engine coupled with that repository if someone wanted to use the engine. It now has its own repository located on fedora hosted. It will still use the same track as fortune hunter.

Now the Fortune Engine has been included in the Fortune Hunter repository as a submodule to keep the engine in the game repository.

I have also made a tarball 1.0 release of the engine as well and tagged it in the repository. My next steps are to upload a copy to pypi and then look into what features I should work on next.

Class 10/26/10

The students has a Quiz this class. And after that they were given the rest of the class period to test some of the Open Hatch Missions.

I don't think they were productive as I personally would have liked due to the lab we are in is running windows machines and the missions are targeted towards linux based systems. The machines had the tools needed, but no one knew how to use the tools. I really should try to learn how to run patches in windows sometime. The tar mission is pretty easy in linux and windows, you can use a terminal or use the gui tools available. In mac this was problematic as the open hatch mission system was saying the tar file uploaded by the user was invalid (this is because of the hidden files mac was adding to the directory before it was bundled into the tar).

The patching was problematic for our windows user as no one could figure out the patch program the lab machines had installed.
