This game is hilarious, I will add it to the game disk!

Needs instructions ?


Still WIP.
Found that random is not working as expected. First sequence after boot is always the same.
Also I’d like to improve a little the graphics.


Try seeding the randomiser with the time since boot or noise from the input pins.

There’s probably a function for that built in somewhere that I’m not aware of (if there isn’t, there should be).


I know that there’s pickRandomSeed in Pokitto::Core for compatibility with the Gamebuino library, and I used that to seed the randomizer for Armageddon. However, it seems to simply call initRandom, which I assume is the intended function since it appears in the API docs. Unfortunately, its implementation appears to do nothing currently! I didn’t realize this, but I went back and checked: the initial order and location of missiles fired in Armageddon is always the same! I think that we eventually should use initRandom, but for now we may have to seed things ourselves.


One common trick is to put up the title screen, and then call the random number function once a frame while you wait for the player to start the game. Since the number of frames that the title screen if viewed will vary, the random number pattern will vary.


I will come back to this soon, I promise. There is a way to get internal temperature of the chip, we will use that as random seed
