Author's Description: Allegro Scrabble (done for C++ Uni Assignment)
It could use some more functionality, but its stable and complete (it does everything i set out to accomplish before i started). Maybe ill do a proper networked multiplayer version later with GNE.
--- Source Info ---
I used MSVC 6 to build this.. you'll need to do the same. I have included prebuilt Allegro libraries and dll's needed for building the project. If you want to run the game after you compile the source yourself, you will still need to get the data.dat file from the pre-compiled game download and put it with your exe.
Also i doubt it will port very well over to Linux or DOS (it uses MFC), if anyone cares to try.. let me know the results.
This game is an example of building Win32 console based games with Allegro that use MFC collection classes. I can only get allegro to play nice with MFC if i use Win32 console. So if you need to use MFC for support classes (god only knows why (maybe for a C++ assignment perhaps? :)) then this is a good place to start if you are a newbie with MFC/Win32 Allegro
Feel free to ask me questions about my code, reuse parts of my code, or use the graphics from the data.dat.
