Is this an issue of autoplay being on or not? I completely understand not moving them when autoplay is off...

Nope, not in SolFree, anyway. I turned on "auto-play foundations" and "auto-flip cards", and it still doesn't give the first flip.

Being that I don't use auto-play, sure that would work for me... no auto-play, no flip.


I just checked MS Solitaire... no flip... though, no auto-play either.

Another feature request:
In Solebon there's another more relaxed form of Spiderette that makes it much easier to win, and sometimes that's more relaxing for me. In this form, you're allowed to move stacks even with mixed colors. To finish the game you still have to have tableaus in suit. Would it be possible to add that variation?

Yeah I can add that. The only question is, what do I call it?

The current version has "Relaxed Spider" and "Relaxed Spiderette" which allows moving a stack of cards that are the same color. So this is even more relaxed... I just need a name for it. My first thought was "Lazy Spiderette", but I don't really want to imply that people are lazy for playing it.

Maybe "Super-relaxed Spiderette" or "Easy Spiderette"?

I think I'll go with "Easy Spiderette". I like "Super-relaxed Spiderette", but it is a bit on the long side.

I've just finished adding "Easy Spider" and "Easy Spiderette". They will be in the next beta update (I'll upload it later tonight).

hehe.

There are a LOT of other solitaire games. I've been really amazed at how many there are. I think this puts the game at 40 total.

To be honest I haven't spent much time looking at other games since this last big release. My plan is to work on improving the stats and adding global preferences (and possibly a few other enhancements). Then I'll work on adding more games.

Adding a variant like Easy Spider is often very easy. Adding a whole new game is a lot more work.

Oh, I understand that. Meanwhile, I'll be thinking up other good solitaire games you can add.

I think I mentioned that I've got an old book listing more than 100 games, and that's not counting minor variations, like how many times you can draw or relaxing the rules about moving piles. But most of them probably aren't worth adding. Wikipedia also has a huge number of solitaire games, including a nice variant of "clock" that actually gives you some choices and some chance of winning. It keeps the attractively different card layout:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grandfather%27s_Clock

and if my description of crazy quilt was hard to follow, it's got the picture:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crazy_Q...28solitaire%29

Hmmm, if you want to make a way for people to compete against each other, you should write Russian Bank. That's a great game. But I think that would be a different application, because (I think) you need two people to play in real time. I don't know if it would be feasible to play against a computer. But either way, having an opponent makes it different enough that I would distribute it as a different game, although I suspect it could share a lot of the same code.

I have a request, don't know if it is even possible, but I would like it if the card wrapped around the screen when dragged.

For example, if I'm playing Klondike and need to move a card or stack from the rightmost pile to the leftmost, I'd like to be able to move the card a small amount right, instead of having to drag it al the way left.

I think I would find that confusing. I often drag stuff aaaalllll the way" to the side to try to get it where I want it. It would be very annoying if it wrapped and jumped to some stack over on the other side.

I have a request: If you're not in the middle of a game, when you are looking at the list of "games attempted", clicking on a number could start that game.

(I would like to get rid of that failed game that I couldn't undo)

I don't see a way to make this work without being really confusing. Since you can't drag past the edge of the screen it would only be possible to move to the far left or far right... I think this would be more confusing than it would be helpful.

I'll take a look at the undo issue. I think I have an idea about the cause of that.

I like the idea of tapping on a game to start playing it. Even if you're in the middle of a game it could do it, after asking you.

I like that idea (partly because I brought it up a couple months back), but until that gets implemented, can't you just type in the game number at the "deal" prompt and replay it?

I know how you feel; I just couldn't live with myself if I ever lost a game of Freecell.

Tom
