You know you've got a problem when you find yourself coding whilst on holiday!

Here's an applet version of that old favourite Taipei http://www.hayles.demon.co.uk/taipei/taipei.html

Maybe I should get out more... Oh, I'll just play one more game first...

Man, where's my unlimited undo and fancy removal animations? =P

Jk, nice clone, esp for free; not sure where you got all the graphics from but they're pretty good. Only minor complaint was it took me forever to realize the fish matched up with this weird thing that looked like a statue with a bee hive at the top (probably due to my own lack of knowledge of this game). I played through one game though. Lost, of course. Glad you got the match checking trigger in place though; wasn't sure if it'd tell me when I lost or not.

Any hidden find-match keys I can press? =)

Good point well made - undo button added. Animations? Didn't you see the two flaming dragons flying in to remove matched tiles, and the amazing fireworks display when you clear the board? Mind you they are really fast! Wink

Hi.
I think scrolling should be added, cause otherwise the whole game area might not be visible (doesn't fit at 1024x768).

Ooh hey, yea definitely would like scrolling or scaling or something. I just realized there's buttons at the bottom of the game. Without running fullscreen I can't see the whole board even at 1280 by 1024 resolution.

Ouch! Good call - I'll get that sorted...

Righteo - new version posted which should resize correctly...

Not sure what you mean - there's a 'hint' button which will find matches for you...

lol; I can't see it because my resolution is only 1024x768 and I didn't know anything else was on the screen.

No, it resizes but not enough Smiley Seems like it's just adjusting for the width.

OK - tied it to both width and height (silly omission on my part, I forgot that some folks have larger menu bars on their browser)
Thanks for checking! Fingers crossed!

  Sad
Could you check the faint green version number in the top left for me? It should read v 0.1...
I can't hide the buttons whatever I do!

It's okay now, I think Firefox may only update applets after a restart. Although there is about an inch of green-space at the bottom!

Yes, the tiles only resize to 4 discrete sizes (otherwise they look really scrappy - java image scaling could be better...)
Thanks again!

Hmm do you realize that the board reshuffles every time you resize the window?

Otherwise I quite like the scaling.  Smiley

Lol - so it does! That's casual coding for you!

Fixed now...  Wink

Vers 0.0.3 posted - just a few cosmetic tweaks.

After a flood of request from a Mrs. Trellis of North Wales, I've posted version 0.0.4 which allows you to SHIFT+click to remove any single tile (click undo to put them back). Apparently she believes that if she can clear the board to two single circles side by side she'll win the lottery, so she wants to know where they are on the board when there are no ends free. Good luck Mrs. Trellis!

Mrs. Trellis has been onto me once again, this time regarding the sound (no lottery win yet apparently). She says that her frenzied last-thing-at-night Taipei sessions are upsetting the neighbours because of all the 'pings' from the game, so could I add a 'sound off' button?

Mrs. Trellis, your merest wish is my most imperative command; version 0.0.6 is now posted.

Another letter from Mrs. Trellis - her nephew has just bought her a new computer with Vista on it and she tells me Taipei doesn't fit on the screen properly, and she also misses those adverts down the side that she so much enjoys on her knitting site.
Sorry to hear that Mrs. Trellis - I hope you'll find version 0.0.7 satisfactory!

(PS still no lottery win, alas)
