Here's what I got
Background is some wallpaper I had lying around.
Doesn't do any win checking now, colors alternate. (No CPU player)

That looks ace!!!
Glad to see that loads of games are being made!!!
Doesn't matter about no cpu, when Xlink is implemented then it should be possible to play against others with this

that looks great! will there be any cheat code? pm them to me

That looks awesome G! With all these great games, has someone started packaging them up yet for the next public release?

Well, I really need to hammer out the rest of the P-n-P spec so that can happen. Now that UnRar is available, I will probably base it on that.
I think a non-graphics/sound version of these games might be possible to include in the internal XML, as items that can be added on painlessly, though...

That's why I opted not to use any external images in my LightsOut game.
I was considering hard coding the XML stuff into the script so the entire was all contained in one file(for easier installation). Then when you run it for the time it would spit out the XML to a real file.

As for the Plug&Play, why dont you just do it like so. Make it a standered to use $ActualPath$\Scripts for all scripts. The just do an auto dir on it like you do for XBE stuff.
BTW, Nice one on the Connect4 geniusalz.

Win-checking works, but it doesn't highlight where the guy has won, and it doesn't end the game when the game is won.
Remember to change the path in the first line of the xas file.Download Here
I tried animating the pieces falling, but it was too slow to look good. But hopefully when the drawlist stuff is done, that won't be a problem.

Do you you save the in memory xml files you use at all? For debugging purposes?
Cause I did, and I not complaining, cause the game does work.

Possible bug, it doesn't show the bottom-most peice for me. I can take a screenshot if you'd like me to.

I'll appreciate that. And if you could get it to 'dump' the xml contents like flattspott did, that would be good.
