Congratulations, Yahtzwii is a great version of Yahtzee. I loved the use of the Wiimote to throw the dice. [[User:Ensign R|Ensign R]] 07:33, 4 February 2009 (UTC)
==Bugs==
"Game will now not let you roll again if all dice are selected."
::version 1.11 still has this problem. It's very easy to reproduce.... Roll the dice, select all the dice (you can only select all the dice if you are on your first or second roll), then mark it on the scorecard, and press (+) to continue. You won't be able to roll the dice again and will have to return to the menu to start a new game. This bug was introduced in version 1.1 with the "Game will now not let you roll again if all dice are selected" fix. --[[User:Mr. Reaper|Mr. Reaper]] 21:54, 23 February 2009 (UTC)
:::Sorry guys, I've only just noticed the comments on this page, which is pretty dumb of me. I've had a couple of people email me about this but they had not mentioned this is happening when all dice are selected. I had assumed it was a random glitch caused by improperly allocated memory or somesuch but it was starting to annoy me. Thanks Mr Reaper, I only wish I'd seen this a few weeks ago. Version 1.12 will be out tomorrow and will correct this. [[User:Chris|Chris]] 22:23, 23 February 2009 (UTC)
::::Well, I didn't even know this app had been updated until last night when I happened to see a post on the pdroms site. I don't think news of this update was ever put on the front page of wibrew.... But thanks, and keep up the good work. --[[User:Mr. Reaper|Mr. Reaper]] 02:50, 24 February 2009 (UTC)
 
 
I tried "scandinavian rules" and it does not seem to correctly give points for a "small straight." --[[User:Mr. Reaper|Mr. Reaper]] 00:41, 7 March 2009 (UTC)
 
::Really? Under Scandinavian rules, a small straight is 1-2-3-4-5 and will always give you 15 points (sum of all dice). People used to these rules used to make the same claim about the standard rules in v1.0. What do you get? [[User:Chris|Chris]] 08:02, 7 March 2009 (UTC)
 
:::Oh, I see.... The straights work differently in Scandinavian rules. I just assumed it was the same, but now I see it's explained in the instructions. --[[User:Mr. Reaper|Mr. Reaper]] 22:03, 7 March 2009 (UTC)
 
==Suggestions==
 
I love this game!! My family loves playing it together, thank you! Any chance you might include Triple Yahtzee in the future? <small>—Preceding unsigned comment added by [[User:Thefuture|Thefuture]] ([[User talk:Thefuture|talk]] • [[Special:Contributions/Thefuture|contribs]]) 17:21, 6 January 2010 (UTC)</small>
:There's always a chance, but it won't be for a while. [[User:Chris|Chris]] 10:08, 8 January 2010 (UTC)
::It's in! New version hopefully within the next week. [[User:Chris|Chris]] 21:27, 1 June 2010 (UTC)
 
Maybe adding "Farkle" and calling it cube games...I love farkle... --[[User:Elisherer|Elisherer]] 09:12, 11 March 2010 (UTC)
:I had thought of doing [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greed_(dice_game) Greed] which is similar. But I've got too much else on at the moment to do anything other than minor updates to this right now. [[User:Chris|Chris]] 17:40, 11 March 2010 (UTC)
 
I saw the update post on a few sites and gave the title screen a "quick lunchbreak makeover"

Not sure if you would be interested in a visual makeover or even have the time to do it... --DayDreamOz 11:32, 17 March 2010 (UTC)
:That is so going in the next update! (out in about a week) Cheers DayDreamOz! [[User:Chris|Chris]] 18:07, 17 March 2010 (UTC)
 
Chris - would you like me to update more art? Is there a way to get me all the ingame art and some screensgrabs so I can give it a quick overhaul?

Something along these lines maybe... --DayDreamOz 23:36, 17 March 2010 (UTC)
:Wow, that would be great. I'll upload a package of screenshots and what little art there is this evening. One thing though, the game supports three, and soon four languages so either any text based graphics are going to need to be done for all four, or probably a better solution is to give me that font. I'd have to re-code it to use variable width fonts but I'm sure I can sort this out and it will be worth it. (Yes I know the scoresheets seem to be using variable width fonts already but they are in fact sprites)[[User:Chris|Chris]] 12:41, 19 March 2010 (UTC)
 
:You can grab the graphics [http://www.toxicbreakfast.com/yahtzwiigfx.zip here]. I've included tons of screenshots so you can see everything but I'd be more than happy with just some new dice, cursors and backgrounds. [[User:Chris|Chris]] 18:14, 19 March 2010 (UTC)
 
:Got the art and got started... The day been a bit busy but I hope to finish the art by tomorrow. Let me know if this works for you. Download the 1st lot of the artbits [http://www.spriteattack.com/_misc/YahtzWii_art.rar here]. --DayDreamOz 12:32, 20 March 2010 (UTC)
::Hey, no rush, it will be a couple of weeks before I'll get it finished anyway. I haven't got anything at the moment which will read the PSD files but I'll sort that out on Monday. [[User:Chris|Chris]] 19:11, 20 March 2010 (UTC)
::: Let me send you png files then :) Try these: [http://www.spriteattack.com/_misc/YahtzWii_ingameArt1.rar PngFiles] --DayDreamOz 20:06, 20 March 2010 (UTC)
::::Excellent! Can I request a background without a scoresheet shadow as well; this is in case of future expansion with different scoresheet types. I'm sure you don't want to bugged for new art every time I update. Also, to go with "Press A to start", I'll need "Appuyez sur A pour commencer", "Zum starten A drücken" and "Druk A om te beginnen" or else do this in game with a font. Cheers! [[User:Chris|Chris]] 18:52, 21 March 2010 (UTC)
:::::I uploaded more art incl. the background here - [http://www.spriteattack.com/_misc/YahtzWii_ingameArt2.rar PngFiles]. --DayDreamOz 00:19, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
::::::Excellent stuff! The file you linked to is the same as the original, although I think I found the one you meant by changing the 1 to a 2. No background in it though? The stuff below looks amazing; feel free to change as much or as little as you want. Might take a little time for me to add it all in though. [[User:Chris|Chris]] 16:56, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
:::::::Oops... my bad... I was sure I had the background in the package... working on the next lot... should be coming tomorrow... :) --DayDreamOz 08:40, 7 April 2010 (UTC)
 
 
I worked on the main menu and another screen. Let me know what you think and if I am making too many changes, please. --DayDreamOz 00:19, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

:Excellent, can't wait for the sprites! [[User:Chris|Chris]] 11:10, 1 May 2010 (UTC)
::Got the email? --DayDreamOz 09:53, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
:::Erm, no I haven't had any emails from you. Can you send it again? chris <swirly thing> toxicbreakfast dot com [[User:Chris|Chris]] 10:16, 3 May 2010 (UTC)
