Carcassonne Expansion Randomizer App
« on: April 09, 2018, 09:46:27 AM »
Someone needs to create a Carcassonne Expansion Randomizer App, so that I can randomly decide what expansions to play with each time I play. I did find a quick work around for this though. I downloaded an app from the Google Play Store called Random Name Picker. In the app I created a list with all my expansions in it. Then I just have to hit the "Choose" button once for a shorter game, or two or three times for a longer game. The app picks the expansions for me. If there already is a Carcassonne Randomizer app out there, just let me know, cuz I couldn't find one. I have no skill in this regard, but I might learn how just for this.

Your randomizer's voice mode seems to be broken; I have been yelling "REFRESH!" at my computer for 15 minutes and I keep seeing the same four expansions.

How do I send a trouble ticket to Halfling customer support?

While not as accessible as Halfling’s randomizer email service, and not something you can put on your phone (except as a pdf), I created randomizer cards a few years ago for that purpose. Instead of just randomly selecting expansions though, I made it to pick up each component of an expansion separately (for example The Builder or Portals-two of my favorites btw). You may want to consider that in your app development training.

I sure did! When that helpful foreign-sounding guy from Microsoft Service called to say they had detected viruses on my computer thingy, I asked him if I could also sign up for Halfling support and he took my credit card information. I paid $789.95 for lifetime support, pal, so bring on the computer assistance!

Sure why not.... will take some time :)

It will be easy to make, but I have no idea how to make an app and launch it on Google Play store or something simular...
The code will be made in 2-3 hours. Will give it a try this weekend  ;)

So there are some ways to make it.
1.
give the number of expansions you want, then randomly let them be chosen.
2.
give the number of tiles you want, then randomly let them be chosen till there are enough tiles.
3.
a combination of 1 and 2. :)

So if you can hand me over a file with all the expansions and thereby the correct number of tiles 8) I think it will succeed

Well the code for a normal program will be easy as said. But for a real android app I will need to figure out how that works ::)
And if I have a sheet with all expansions and according tiles that would be nice.
