Decides when to start a game, based on who's holding a button.

Project description

Build Status Coverage Status

To see a demo of the game start, clone, then run python3 -m GameStarter.gamestart

There are also some test cases that test that the class handles some simple invalid configurations correctly and that it can handle the various imperfections of the humans that want to start a game. Run the tests with python -m GameStarter.gamestart_test

To use this code:

  • import it
	from GameStarter import GameStarter
  • instantiate the GameStarter class
	gs = GameStarter(total start delay, delay to join game, delay to leave game)
	#eg...
	gs = GameStarter(5.0, 2.0, 0.5)
  • then report whenever a player pushes or releases a button:
	gs.player(0).push()	#report button push for first player
	gs.player(1).release()	#report button release for second player
  • regularly update the internal timer at the desired resolution:
	gs.step_time(0.05) #Step 0.05 seconds, call this every 0.05 seconds (for example)
  • then you can see if you have enough players ready like so:
	if gs.should_start : #we have enough players to start
  • you can determine which players have joined using:
	gs.joined_players
