First post to the list from a relatively new user. I've been lurking
and learning for the last six months or so and I have to say that this
list is one of the reasons I purchased a LiveCode seat. What a great
resource! Besides, I got started in 3d years ago when the only place to
be was on a list like this one, so there's definitely a nice oldskool
kind of comfort level that you just don't seem to get on a web forum.
I've been absolutely delighted with what I've been able to do with
LiveCode so far! I've mainly used it for some simple but custom
business type apps used at my day job (Wine buyer and merchant). I hope
to also eventually produce some apps to help out in my freelance visual
In the meantime, I've been tasked by a friend to help develop a
geography based game for her middle school class. Since there will not
be an internet or wifi connection allowed, it rules out any connection
to Google maps and related data. I'm not sure how to begin to approach
a self contained version.
The basic premise is similar to some of the flash based online geography
games. A location is presented and the user taps or clicks where they
believe it exists. Points would be determined by how close the guess is
to the actual location.
Any thoughts as how to initially approach this without the use of Google
Maps or any other online content would be wonderful!
