    Hi all. Great site. This is me introducing myself and asking a question at the same time.

    I would ideally love to make my own homebrew game but I'm a bit lame with such things. I've been on a few sites that involve homebrew coders and the general rule is that someone will help you create if you can contribute in some way. ( I have not posted a request in these forums for fear of being flamed...lol) The problem is I really don't know how. The thing I can perhaps do is provide Exactly what I need and artwork, see below.

    DS Bingo Screenshot

    I'd like a Bingo game creating for when we are on the move with kids (and Grannies).

    I had a PC version and it kept us quiet for hours.

    The game would call out a random number between 1 and 90 on the bottom screen, non repeatable. It could have the last number called and next number showing. Also a reset or new game button.

    The top screen would have a board with all 90 numbers showing and when a number gets called that number gets covered.


    So what do you think, more importantly, what are my chances?

    Been done ... well, sort of ... in a roundabout way [​IMG]

    There are DS homebrews that allow Java apps to be run on a DS.

    There are several Java-based Bingo games.

    See where I'm going with this ... ?

    Thats the thing about Google, depending on your search terms it can be your best friend or your worst enemy.

    haha hello [​IMG]

    Yeah, true ... about Google, that is ... it's why I never use it lol

    Try doing a search for Java2NDS ... I don't know how far along it is ... there are a couple of others, but I forget their names.
