Welcome by Enrico Rosina
New version of the site
After more than 10 years of ininterrupted presence, my site was in need for a revision.
The technology which I had used (java applets) is not supported in the browsers
anymore. Although there still was people playing to Skip-Bo on my old site, they were
each year fewer who could play. As soon as they changed their computer, they could not
find the necessary plugin for the game.
So I am now rebuilding my site and it is time consuming... I published it as is,
but it is still in maintenance, thank you for understanding.
New versions of the Skip-Bo cards game
You will soon have three versions at your service:
One version can already be used in your browser, at the address
phpskip.anisor.ch. There is
nothing to download, you play directly.
For this version I had to rewrite completely the game in the php language.
The accustomed users will find that the game is not as complete as the previous
one, but it already shows what it will be looking like when finished.
One version is specially developed as a phone app, but it wil only run on Android.
This version will soon be available for downloading.
THE version ("THE" in capitals because it's my preferred version), will be
downloadable and installable on your computer. But it's always the same, having
a finished game is not enough, there must be an installer application as well.
I do have an installer, but so aged that I don't dare distribute it. It needs to
be rewiewed too.
What's more, for philosophical reasons I don't have a Windows operating system
(I am using Linux), so I cannot check myself if the installer is running well
on other operating systems. I'm confident that it could run but not create
automatically the shortcuts for launching the game.
Just a word on my site's look.
I hope that you may have noticed that there is no advertizing on my site. Or if
I may give a reference, it is 100% in an uninterrested manner. Personally, I like
to keep the site sober, and you may see that it's obvious.
I also changed my provider and now it is
hosting the pages.
