Updated Jigsaw Factory generator software and puzzle client software to version 2.


The Jigsaw Factory generator software and puzzle client software have both been updated to version 2. The following changes have been made to the software.

Jigsaw puzzle client

Switched from drawing on a Purebasic GUI canvas to a sprite and screen system which makes use of the GPU. This has dramatically sped up rendering and allowed for puzzle piece rotation and other dynamic effects to be added.

Added optional manual rotation of puzzle pieces. The pieces are rotated to a random rotation at the start and can then be rotated via the mousewheel when they are picked up. Pieces will only interlock when they are at their correct rotation.

Added optional dynamic puzzle piece rotation and movement. Puzzle pieces can be set to slowly rotate and move around the screen, making solving the puzzle more challenging. Puzzle pieces can also be set to attempt to evade the mouse pointer.

Added optional puzzle piece forcefields. These can be set to rotate, counter-rotate, or not rotate. The forcefields have an opening in them that the user needs to maneuver their mouse pointer through or they will be unable to pick up the puzzle piece. The forcefields change color from green to red when a mouse pointer detection has occurred.

Added the option for the user to set a time limit on the amount of time allowed to solve a puzzle, with a timer visible in the top-right corner of the puzzle screen. This is a soft limit, so the user can still finish the puzzle if they wish. Time limits can be customized depending on the number of puzzle pieces in the puzzle. A forcefield detection penalty can also be set and customized.

Added a 'More Info' tab page with a HTML browser window and info page navigation listbox. This can be used to give the user customized HTML information pages to browse.

Added a settings profile system that allows the user to customize and save multiple sets of puzzle settings. This effectively allows the user to create their own game modes. Users can select which settings they wish to use via a dropdown menu.

Added an option to show a faint copy of the completed puzzle image in the background.

Added a volume control for program sounds.

Added the ability to take a screenshot of the puzzle screen.

Added support for international character sets in the window title, HTML information files, and other files.

Probably a few other things I've forgotten to mention.

Added support for international character sets in the puzzle client window title, HTML information files, and other files.

Added a 'More Info' tab page to the puzzle client with a HTML browser window and info page navigation listbox. This can be used to give the user customized HTML information pages to browse. The pages shown on this client tab page can be edited on the Jigsaw Factory 'Create More Info Pages' tab page.

Added an 'Open The Previous Project' button to the 'Select Puzzle Project' tab page. This will open the last project that was worked on.

Probably a few other things I've forgotten to mention.
