Is Major League Skeeball an open source project?
« on: March 08, 2020, 05:55:45 pm »
Forgive me if this is a stupid question, but is the Major League Skeeball software open source? If so, may I download it from somewhere ? I would like to modify it and make it into more of a drinking game. Thank you.

I don't think nipsmg has gone full Open Source on Major League Skeeball, but he mentions a sample game project for software development kit (SDK) and a blog post about game creation in the ToDo list.

ToDo
  • Add in high-score system
  • Add final sound effects for classic
  • Sound Effects for 310/320ZAP
  • Game Over graphics for classic
  • Add a sound effect for going over the game score in zap/x10
  • Convert bowling scoring grid into drawable components (fixes text overlay on top of bowling exciter animations)
  • Implement FreeSkee variant
  • Implement FlashPoint variant
  • Remove text-based menu and implement graphical menu
  • Finish attract mode implementation
  • Implement system-wide game instructions functionality
  • Add system-wide game-over drawablegamecomponent
  • Add system-wide "You're up player X" component.
  • Code clean-up and refactoring
  • Create sample game project for SDK
  • Blog post for Game Creation
  • Add round displays for x10 and zap

No, it's not open source..  Not that I won't open it at some point.

I've had people sell past work as their own, and given the scale of work and amount of free time I'm not too thrilled about that prospect at the moment.

It's totally extensible through the SDK..  so you can create your own games and make them drinking-game style.

I'd be happy to help you out with that.
