Beta Version Of Xoggle Released

Drew Hamlin has released a beta version of Xoggle, bringing it to version b15. 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. 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 1B15:

  • Fixed a bug in which duplicate letters next to each other in some cases caused Xoggle to fail to recognize some words as being on the board
  • The bug report readout is now a correct representation of the board
  • Words with "qu" are no longer be considered to be correct with just a "q"

Note: As of Beta 1B15, 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.
