I woke up this morning and realised there was a piece of functionality I HAD to have in FS – an advanced search facility to find games with certain attributes. Here’s an example.
PLEASE NOTE that the menu graphics are just temp ones and this is not final art. Thank you. Also, I’m aware that it’s a bit squashed in the blog – you may need to click the pictures to get a good view.
Alright! Let’s find all games played by Bin.
1431! That’s a lot. That includes all games that haven’t been finished (mainly ones for testing against me) so let’s tick the “Complete” box.
1109… still quite a lot. (And *just* more than Beefiest, who doesn’t get paid to play this game).
Bin and YouGo have a pretty good rivalry going on – they’re always swapping #2 and #3 on the global rankings. Let’s find all finished games between them.
56 games in the series – a decent number. How many has Bin won?
31 – he *just* has the series edge. Finally, let’s see if he beat YouGo in 2 or fewer turns ever:
Turns out he did! Three times.
This is one of those features that programmers love to make. I feel like we’ve already gone so all-in on our match archiving that we really need a tool like this so you can look up fun things like this. Loading a game is as easy as double clicking it too.
