Design: I'm kind of a novice with graphics. I want to change the graphics to be smaller to fit on 800x600 screens, and the board into grayscale so the pages will print well on more printers. I would also like to use the PNG format, if someone can tell me how to create transparent regions in a PNG graphic.
Games, games and games. In any format. On that note:
If I don't already know how to convert your format to mine, I will figure it out, and I will write a conversion program.
I don't care too much about the quality of the games, but it's not that helpful to have stuff by real novices. But I don't mind the mistakes made by weaker players. It's still Hex, and there's room for all.
I already handle playsite, Hexy game records (binary or text), Six game records, PBEM games (from gamerz.net), JHex games, and games from Kurnik!
I can read attachments to your emails -- no need to cut and paste.
If you would like to explore a move sequence, I can generate partial games in bulk.
I like "Cooks" of games already in the database: if you find a move that can be improved, submit a game that shows it. The database will automatically prefer the move that gives the better result in the game.
I'm happy to get artificial games, intended to explore parts of the game space that players haven't already occupied.
If your games are not played out to the bitter end, I will supply the missing moves. Be warned that I may get it wrong, so be prepared to look at the result and be astonished! :o) Feel free to send in corrections.
I already recognize simple templates. Here's an example. If you understand templates, and have an idea about how to recognize them automatically from a game record, I would like to hear from you.
Contact me at Kevin O'Gorman, or during play Kurnik! -- I operate under the names kogorman and I_Use_OHex. If you play me under the latter name, you may be playing against the database: you've been warned.
