Description:

KBoggle 0.4.1
=============

This is KBoggle, a Boggle game for KDE.

For those who don't know Boggle, it's quite simple: make words of
the letters you find in the grid. From a certain starting letter,
you can go horizontal, vertical and diagonal to make words. Find as
many words in the given time.

If you play with your mouse, use the left mouse button to select a
character. The middle mouse button will submit a word. The right
mouse button will go one step back in the selection. Double clicking
with the right mouse button will clear the selected characters.

KBoggle uses KSpell for validating the words. To play with a wordlist,
check your spell checker configuration in KBoggle's configuration. If
you don't have a spell checker backend installed, please install
one. KSpell supports the following spell checkers:

ASpell - http://aspell.net/
ISpell - http://fmg-www.cs.ucla.edu/geoff/ispell.html
HSpell (Hebrew) - http://www.ivrix.org.il/projects/spell-checker/

If KSpell is not properly configured, KBoggle will show a warning. You
can still play KBoggle then, but it doesn't check if the word is a
valid word.

If you manage to run this game on KDE 3.3 or lower, please let me know,
so I can adapt the minimum requirements on the homepage [1].

Changelog:

o The accents feature in 0.4 was broken. Fixed.
o Save encoding of word list

I have modified the program so it works with the french accents.

What is the procedure?
So I send it to the programmer?

Thank you

I have the same problem with accents than before.

There is one weird thing : I configure kboggle to use iso-8859-1, but this is not persistent : if I re-open the configuration dialog, the encoding is always US-ASCII.

My config : KDE 3.4.2, Aspell 0.60.3

Do you enter the words with or without accents? You should enter them with accents.

About the encoding: the setting was not saved. That's fixed for the next version.

I'm entering them with accents (for example, "été"). The game tells me that the word doesn't appear in the grid.

Oh, and anyway, thanks for your work :)

Thanks for your feedback. I've located the problem and it will be in the next release.

 Scoring

Neat - good work. I did have a couple of questions?

How is this game scored? It shows higher scores than the rules I am familiar with. For example, I am looking at a game with 24 words and 42 points. The words (by the scoring I am familiar with) break down as follows:

3-letter - 11 words - 11 points
4-letter - 9 words - 9 points
5-letter - 3 words - 6 points
6-letter - 1 word - 3 points

I come up with 29 points - not 42???

Also, the "Q" cube in English needs an automatic "U" - From wikipedia:

"Note that one cube is printed with 'QU'. This is because Q is (almost) always followed by U in English words. If there was a 'Q' in Boggle, it would have to appear next to a 'U' to be usable. To give players a chance to use the Q more frequently, 'QU' is provided as a single letter tile. However, for the purposes of scoring 'QU' counts as two letters: "squid" would score two points (for a five-letter word) but is formed from a chain of only four cubes.

Scoring

Word Length Points
3 1
4 1
5 2
6 3
7 5
8+ 11

I believe Kboggle scores as follows:
3-letter: 1 point
4-letter: 2 points
5-letter: 3 points
...
n-letter: n-2 points.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
