RTC support against the official answer list would be fun...
RTC is not on my to-do list for now.
There is another GB Wordle you can try which does have that feature, though it still seems to be early in development:
We need a version in Brazilian Portuguese, Pleaase!
Thank you. :)
I think I found a suitable dictionary and answer list. I made a test version here, if you wouldn't mind checking it and sharing your feedback (feedback can be in the github issue or here on itch.io)
I test and look's great!
The ROM don't have sound or music?
Nice guess :)
And thanks for testing. I'll make the PT-BR available as an official download.
No sound fx and music at this time. Sound fx maybe, but music is unlikely in the 32K ROM format (which is intended for a physical cart release). There just isn't much room for anything after the dictionary. :) :) :)
There might be a non-32k ROM release in the future, that one could have music.
Hey! there's someone selling your game in physical cartdridge on Etsy, or maybe it's veeeery similar
Just a small update - the next version which is coming out very soon will have Sound Effects. Still no room for music.
dude, have you ever played jaipur?
is a very simple card game for two people.
you would be the perfect guy to turn this gem into a game boy game!
two card games that would be perfect in game boy: Cubirds and Jaipur.
play a few games on the Game board Arena, you'll fall in love!
Killing it with this update, thank you. Keep up the great work.
Very nice! I wish there was a version with a german dictionary though. :P
We discuss some work on this in the comment thread directly below - you can download an initial version with a German dictionary from the related github issue.
It remains to be seen how well the user interface text can be translated and still fit within the current constraints.
There is now a version (0.85+) with a German dictionary (see limitations noted above) and translated User Interface text. Looks like your wish came true. :P
Thanks to Skite2001 for User Interface translations!
Very very nice game and improvements from you... I just wonder... Would it be possible for me to use your github fork and replace /translate the english words via paste'n'copy to german, or wouldnt this easy like this? Cheers
There is another update with many improvements coming very soon. :)
For German language a potential problem is the code (dictionary compression, keyboard, font) does not support special characters like umlaut, etc. Everything is built around the 26 English letters.
If you have words that are limited to those criteria then it is possible.
Given the above, if you have the two lists of words (Answer words and Remaining 5-letter words) then perhaps I can try to make a build.
You are welcome to try making the changes yourself, but it may be easier if I do them.
I think there would be enough 5 Letter words without umlaut. And even if they are really needed it could be done this way:
Do you think translation of your words would be possible, or better choose completly new ones?
Translation from English is unsuitable since there are thousands of words and many wouldn't be 5 letters once translated. See "answers.txt" and "full.txt"
Better to find an already compiled German word list (perhaps even Wordle list) and then filter that to 5 letter words (and as you suggest, exclude ones with special chars is sufficient).
Then split into a set of most common words (answer list) and remaining words. Sometimes that sorting is already available somewhere. And perhaps look through answer list to remove the more "offensive" words.
I put German word lists reduced to 5 letters and English A-Z in a zip file here:
If you're interested, you can take a look to see if they are suitable.
If they are, and you are up for it, it would be nice if you might skim through and remove typically offensive words from the shorter "answers" list (this shorter list is where it chooses the secret word for each round).
Hey mate 👍your progress is faster then my search for other german wordlist sources 🤣
I crosschecked your german answer list. Seems very good and can't find a single offensive word 👍😎
I built a ROM with the German answer list and dictionary then added it to that ticket (you're also welcome to comment there if you'd like). I did some brief testing and it seems to work as expected.
If you want to give it a try that would be great.
If it looks good, maybe I'll add an intro popup message indicating the language and explaining the limitations.
When I use afterplay.io (my preferred emulator), it doesn't work.
That's unfortunate, sorry to hear that. For problems that only occur on emulators and not real hardware, I'll generally consider those to be bugs in the Emulator and will not address them. A better solution is for the given emulator having problems to improve the accuracy so they can run games without special accommodations.
The web emulator on this page is available as an alternative.
