[V1.5] Forum Mafia Note Taker - Easier BBCode

Postby Coolway99 » Wed Jul 16, 2014 6:42 pm

IF YOU WANT SOMETHING ADDED/CHANGED/REMOVED, SUGGEST IT/MAKE IT AN ISSUE WITH SUGGESTION TAG HERE, I CANNOT READ MINDS PEOPLE

PLEASE REPORT ANY BUGS HERE


As you may know, Forum Mafia can be a very forum heavy game. And while a text document can work out well, It often can't do much for organization without a lot of tedious editing

While a notebook can take care of this, you can lose it and it's hard to "edit" data without a bottle of whiteout.

This program is meant to solve these issues. It's meant to have a fairly simple interface reminiscent of ToS to help you organize your notes and make edits easily, with the friendly BBCode your used to on the forums for all your styling needs.

Required: Java 7 or higher

    Known Issues (Refreshed when new version is released, strikethrough is confirmed fixed in next upcoming release):
  • It MIGHT not work well on your screen, this is due to the components getting their size from the font height/width and screen resolution

I've actually found that a small program called jrnl works very well, but it doesn't include an internal editor. If you make a command-line entry-point, you can hook it up.

Actually, the way I'm planning on making this is so that you can have a role list, can store last wills, days, ect, see alive players, the remaining role list, put possible notes on what roles you think they are

Ect. Ect. Ect.

Currently I'm working on it and I got it so that it crashes without any sort of crash error or log or anything, just freezes open :D

Oh wow awesome! I considered making something like that, but I got bored with it.

Could you put it up on GitHub?

Nah, I'm just editing the code out to make it a bit less testy, and yes that is it.

Give me a moment and I'll push my first 2 commits (init and my major editing)

I found a handy tool called the default notepad, it requires no download!
Or maybe I just organise things really nicely... :?

I just scrall in a real life notepad. Seems to be working fine, just have to work through the mess.


I do think a program like this would be very useful though, can't wait to see the finished product!

I figured out my problem :D with this new input (and some errors I found) I'm going to start on the layout, Ima quickly draw something up in paint.net and then ask for feedback

I never actually thought to take notes in a FM game. This could come in handy considering games are reaching 120+ pages these days. >.>
Is it just for taking note of who claims what, or is there more such as roleblock/witch/douse claims?

Wait, there are people who don't keep notes in FM? :lol:

I keep notes of roleclaims, whispers, claimed night actions, any interesting or suspicious posts, and anything else that seems important.

I didn't when I was Survivor and got bored with the game when I was GF (thanks to dying N1), but decided I had to as Mayor. All those role-claims would have gotten confusing if I didn't write them all down in a handy note-book u.u
They're necessary for some roles, not so much for others.

If I do take notes, I just use a notebook. Easier than having to open my laptop every time, since half the time I'm on my phone :lol:

I've never taken notes until I started modding my game. I make a default template of all of the names with roles, then copy-paste it to other notes. I have a note for night actions with results, role claims (yes, I keep track of role claims for fun :D) and votes.

Over a quarter of the role claims start with "V" :roll:
Seriously why bother?

something something ongoing games

Anyway, this is my usual note-taking process:
1) Make spreadsheets for vote counts, whispers, reads, flipped roles, etc pregame.
2) Roll scum.
3) Take notes rarely if at all.

I did actually use my notes as town, though.

Well, while I work on formulating a layout, you could post suggestions on what it should and shouldn't have :D

Would it allow you to mark reads wrt alignment or just role? I don't really try to guess people's specific roles; whether they're town or not is all that really matters (at least when I'm town).

I think some sort of feature for tracking votes could be helpful. Not entirely sure how much you can read from just raw votes, but it's at least a starting point.
