I am working on a bigger board for 1024 screens and will be making all boards easier to configure with simple xy locations for the checker placements to be read from a text file. With this method, boards and checkers can by any size. Just fill out about 5 or 6 entres (left , top bar offset etc.. )

I had some ideas about making a full screen picture background but I dont know yet if it's going to be more of a hassle than its worth. Here is a picture of what it would look like. I had some help from gnubg making these boards. Cut and paste is about all I can manage with a graphics program.

I will be posting intermittent update 3dfibs.exe files on the home page as I go along if anyone wants to try em out before I finish and upload the whole package. Anything after 3.0.83 should be easily configurable for a bigger board.

3DFiBs 3.0.85 sneak peek. Stay tuned. Main changes are in the pics folder (bigger board, data.txt and background folders). And a full screen mode under preferences menu

Hi Maareyes!

Can you fix the problem with .0.83 version, when I exit the program and if there is chat boxes
open it doesnt close them as well.

Some players many times want 'em to be invited in 2pt matches (they dont know how to use command
'invite player 2') always during mini matches tournament. Can you add 2pts to invitation?

Cheers
Kari

Hi Kari,

Thanks for the chat box bug report. I have made some changes in recent version to fix the chat box issue. I dont use chat much so I hadn't noticed it. I dont have any old version updates. only 4.0 or higher.

The match length combo box can be edited directly. No need to type the command. Just enter a 2 in the box. I personally dont like 2 pt matches as they appear to be a ploy (maybe I'm, wrong)  to take advantage of someone who does not understand correct cube handling at that match score (pretty much a double/take from the getgo). I think 1-3-5 is the right way.

Just a quick note on changes..

To switch between full screen and regular mode (need to do this to see the player list) use the mnimize/maximize buttons or double click the wndow title bar.

Checker.bmp has changed from 3 checkers to the simple single checker one up one down.

To align checkers on a custom board, go to menu preferences->options->configure board data. This will open the text file data.txt. change the numbers in there, save the file and click the button again to see the checkers adjusted. No more need to make boards same size as original.

There is also now a backgrounds sub folder in each pic/boards folder. You can place your own pics in there.

When in full screen mode, move the mouse up or down to the edge to see the controls.

Here is a board that webrunner had made. It used to be included in the main install but got left out after some spacing incompatibilities appeared in one of the updates. Now with the new version, it took me all of 15 minutes to scale it up to a bigger size and add my own checkers and configure the spacing.

I have also added a detailed "How to make your own boards" section to the home page under support. It outlines how I went about creating the default board even though my graphic artistic skills are limited cut and paste. http://download-texas-holdem-poker.com/backgammon/custom.html

Now there is no excuse for anyone not to have their very own 'dream" board.  thumbsup2

Here is an antique looking board I stole from David Levy's tric trac page

http://pages.sbcglobal.net/david.levy/trictrac/

(I think he said I could use it..  blink I will ask again.

The sample jpg below is full screen mode of version 4.0. MOve the mouse up to the top corner to see the toobar and menus, double clidk the title bar (maximize) to switch to normal mode and back.

Ok, I really liked the driftwood style, but I'm a freak for the color blue, so I took all of the images driftwood (except picTray) and did everything in shades of blue only I added a new picture for picTray.  I haven't figured out how to choose a new background pic for fullscreen mode yet.  I blessed the theme with a new name "shadesofblue".  I've uploaded the theme in a zip file for ya's if that's allowed, if not I apologize and won't do it again.  Anyway, hope you like.

You can baptize, bless name, rename and edit your themes as you see fit and you are encouraged to upload and share them.

The backgrounds folder scheme has changed from early versions of 4.0xx. (as documented in the recent changes list on the downloads page) There is now only 1 backgrounds sub folder under pics rather than the redundant backgrounds in every themes folder scheme of the early versions.

You can add jpg or gif formated pictures into your backgrounds folder and select from a list while in fullscreen mode (move your mouse to the bottom right corner to see the filelist box).

Nice work on the pictray.jpg. It matches the theme nicely  Cool!

I made this style out of the board I use in GnuBG. It's called "Terminal" and even has a background to go with it. Hope you like it.

I'm aware this is a 3DFibs board, spiel.   Smiley  I use JavaFibs when I am acting as Tourney Director, but I like to play using 3DFibs at other times as well.   Smiley  I would like to know how to change my 3DFibs board.
