First Hangman submitted

From: user 7.
Sent on: Wednesday, January 21, 2009 11:50 AM
Andrew has kicked things off in fine fashion with an excellent implementation of Hangman.  You can download it in the Files section, and it will compile with the free C# Express 2008.
 
Andrew's implementation features a "Draw your own Hangman", which is a very nice touch!
 
If you dig through the code, there's a gold mine of demonstrated .Net and C# forms programming features.  Delegates, GDI+, event handlers, animation, serializers, etc. etc.  (Dude, the swinging action is a NICE touch!)
 
If you're having trouble developing your own Hangman, maybe you could challenge yourself to download Andrew's code and see if you can add some feature to it.  Some ideas:
 
* configurable background wallpaper
* on-screen timer (possibly even a countdown timer, i.e. 5-second time limit to guess a letter, etc.)
* difficulty level selection (where higher difficulty chooses words with a minimum length)
 
Great job Andrew!  If you have a chance, maybe you could write a little blurb about it on the message board, I created a discussion for Hangman submissions.
 
Hope to see more submissions soon...(I am traveling on business and haven't had a chance to start mine yet.)
 
-John
