Drew Hamlin has released a beta version of Xoggle, bringing it to version b27. Xoggle is an open-sourced version of the classic game Boggle. Xoggle features networkable gameplay and a full dictionary word list. The latest version features bug fixes and a minor enhancement. According to Drew Hamlin:
Xoggle, the open-source Boggle game developement effort, was updated today from developer Drew Hamlin of Vizspring Software.
Xoggle is an open-source, networkable game of the popular classic game Boggle. It includes a full dictionary word list as well as REALbasic and text-based source code.
Changes in release 1B27:
- Added preferences dialog with the option to auto-define the word list instead of having to manually select it at the start of each game
- Fixed a bug where Xoggle would fail to pick the longest possibility in some rare cases, which sometimes would result in not seeing a word as being on the board
Note: As of the current version, multiplayer networking is disabled and is still yet to be added to the game. We are planning on using the newly written QueueSocket to add multiplayer capabilities in an upcoming release.
