Basic Bingo App
Aug 30 2018 08:53 AM
Making a game or an app is a process. If you are super newbie I think you should start with some display rects, texts and simple fuctions to make a start, then if you are experimenting some troubles, come here with some code, no with the whole idea cause its very difficult to be in your mind to know how exactly you want.
I recommend that you start with the Getting Started guide.
Good luck, and I would like to see you again with some code.
I have done your basic balloon bounce exercise. I was able to build the app. This really didn't give me the information I need to progress. What is the second step in developing skills etc. I would like to learn, but this one exercise isn't enough. Where do I go from here, with the app I described in mind.
There are a couple of different things you're asking here. Perhaps focusing on part of the app that you're struggling with and narrowing the focus of what you need help with like selecting 5 items from a list of 15. Or drawing a 5x5 grid on the screen. Once you solve one part of the problem, then asking for the next part will help narrow down the scope. It will make it easier on the community to respond to you.
Now let me jump into the 5x5 grid. There are a couple of tutorials you might be able to draw some inspiration from:
That tutorial is probably a lot of overkill for what you're trying to do, but it does create a 5xN grid of numbers on the screen. You can cut through a lot of the fluff to get to just what's needed to create a grid.
This is a video tutorial on building the game of Tic-Tac-Toe, which if course is a 3x3 grid game. It probably cuts to the chase on creating a grid based display.
There were two tutorials, so we have no idea which one you're using. It would be really helpful if you copy/paste the entire error message from the Corona console log. It would also be helpful if you posted the code around where you're getting the error and let us know what line number is causing the error in your code.
It was the first video of the tick tac toe game. Just pulled it up again here is the log.
