    Who wants to be a millionaire?

    Scoglionario 0.1








    scognito, an italian member of GBAtemp, has submitted the first version of his new game "Scoglionario", a WWTBAM clone.


    [title:Features & readme]

    Scoglionario is a question based game, based on the famous "Who wants to be a millionaire" ("Chi vuole essere milionario" in italian) tv show.


    Features


    * Autodetecting system language and loading the specific questions pack (only italian and english for now)

    * DLDI compatible (tested on NinjaDS and R4)

    * Help: 50/50, Phone a friend, Ask the audience added (realtime-antani-randomizer-supersexy percentage builder thanks to AKBG)

    * Question stored in txt file (one for each 14 levels) so editing questions is easy

    * Themed as similiar as possible (sound and graphics) the original game

    * I didn't write the questions, I just used the files I found on google, so don't blame me if they are not good! [​IMG]


    Installation:


    * Patch the game with appropriate DLDI and put wherever you want inside the card

    * Put the "data" folder in the root of the card, or if you have the data folder yet, just put the "scoglionario" folder inside the "data" one on the card.

    * If you plan to use on emulator (only DeSmuME was tested) put all the questions file of your prefered language in the same folder where the rom is.

    Drawback 1: since sound is garbled in the emulator, it is disabled (you can still turn on in the options screen). Drawback 2: you lose half on entertainment not playing on real DS!

    * Enjoy

    Thanks to the author himself, scognito, for the tip!

    Doesn't WWTBAM have 15 questions?

    I was working on one but I got bored recently.

    Yes, there's 15 questions. However, the .txt files for the questions go from 0-14. [​IMG] Someone probably just saw 14 and assumed that's where it stopped. 0 is question 1, and 14 is questions 15, and so forth for those in between. [​IMG] Someone should make GBATemp themed .txt file questions. [​IMG]

    Does this only allow 15 questions to be stored in the txt file, or does it let you store multiple Question 1, multiple Question 2, etc? It would be kind of a waste if every single game is exactly the same.

    Each individual level has many questions for it, and you could even add more! So again, would be nice if someone could make GBATemp themed questions. [​IMG]

    Hey, if you ever need MP3's of the official sfx/musicz, just ask me, I still have a rip of all of the sounds from the show from when I made my WWTBAM presentation for my french class.

    You could probably adapt the questions from the recent quiz.

    Sounds are there yet, but they are low volume... can you convert a few for test using this guide (or another way) http://www.palib.info/wiki/doku.php?id=day7

    sounds should be 8 bit signed mono with sample rate of 11025 mhz

    NOTE:
    would be nice to continue discussions over there too: http://scognito.wordpress.com/2007/08/16/s...io-01/#comments

    Thanks!
