For those who have owned a Playstation and enjoy playing RPG games, then you might remember Final Fantasy 9. It didn't have as many mini-games as FF7, but it did have a fun card game to relax you from the main story line...if you were able to understand the fragmented manual .

In this version of TM, it uses the same features as the original plus more "manual included". If you haven't played the Playstation version, then you won't be missing much after playing this game.

FAQ:

Q: Why did you make this game?
A: When playing FF9, I felt the mini-game wasn't made to its full potential. So instead of complaining, I took action and wrote up a updated version.

Q: How long did you have to play the game to know how it works?
A: Not much. Because of Trifthen having already went through the trouble of making a FAQ about the game, it took a large weight off my shoulders.
~ http://www.gamefaqs.com/ps/197338-fi...y-ix/faqs/9671

Q: Porting
A, Platforms: As of now, the program is still not complete for the platform it is intended for. Android is a maybe, Droid is a maybe, iPhone is a no.
A, Game(s): Depends what game your requesting. Triple Triad is tentative to being added to the list.
After Tetra Master, I'm going to be playing with OpenGL and attempt to make a Sphere Break. I would LOVE to make a Blitzball port....but its still out of my skill reach.

Q: I found a bug/ problem
A: Awesome, post it somewhere in this thread or send me a pm. I'm on the pc quite often. Just remember to be detailed in where the problem happened and what you were doing before it happened "as much as you can recall". If the game crashes and you get an error, report it in the following way:

Quote:

error message

at Tetra_Master.xxx.yyy1()
at Tetra_Master.xxx.yyy2()
...
...
at Tetra_Master.xx

Error from Version: 0.00.0

If the line after "at" does not contain "Tetra_Master", then don't bother typing it. I don't have any control over the system stuff, only the game functions. Also, the stuff between the parenthesis, don't bother typing that stuff. I know what the function is, its input variable is irrelevant to fixing the problem.

Q: I love this game, can I help?
A: At the moment, yes. I'm looking for a graphics designer for: making new creature images and some other small work. If you are interested, send me a pm and some work you've done. All the images are in 24-bit format. I am not an artist, but I can do a fair amount of image editing. If you can do better art than me, then welcome to the team.

Q: OHH! I got this great idea for your game
A: I am always looking for new things to put in the game to make it more vibrant. Post it anywhere "pm/ thread" and I'll see it.

Q: Can I help with the programming?
A: Thank you, but no. If you want to help, give recommendations of what you would like to see in the game.

Q: I have a question which isn't mentioned in the FAQ
A: Toss it into the thread. Every bit makes this forum a better place.

Sounds cool... obviously a needed feature would be human vs human multiplayer and down the line possible a network-based game.

I should also mention that I liked Triple Triad from FF8 better than Tetra Master.

I'm sorry that it gets cut off on the VGA screens. There is a VGA version in the works after the WVGA is completed. It's not scalable because I was cutting corners to get this to stable release. :D

Version 1.0 will include VGA support

I like this Idea, I am a big FF fan and enjoyed the card games and have alwasy wanted one to play on my phone. I will admite I gave much more time in learning the FF8 card game more then the FF9 but they were both fun. I look foward to trying this out more when you add better features.

If you need a tester I do have the CDMA touch pro 2 and would be more then happy.

Doesn't look bad. Tried it on my Window Mobile 6.5. Crashed once I bought a card, but now it doesn't. Also crashed when I tried to trade cards. Unfortunaly you arn't finished with save/load... this would be great.

Keep your good work up dude...
