'''''iiii''''' is a digital clone of the popular retail and pen-and-paper game "Connect 4". It is similar to Tic-Tac-Toe.
== Rules ==
The rules are simple. You take turns with another player to drop red or black pieces into the board. Pieces fall in from the top and slide down to stack up on top of each other. The goal is to be the first to get 4 of your pieces touching in a straight line (diagonals also count) before your opponent does. This is similar to Tic-Tac-Toe.
== Details == This is a 2 player game. Unless you have a split personality, you will need to install a second has one and two player (not included) somewhere near your wiimodes.<br>By default there is one player and one controller in the game only uses one wiimote. If you want Hitting plus (+) (or x on the added convenience GameCube controller) will toggle control of a second wiimote, or if the other player has snot on his hands, you can set <tt>control TWOWIIMOTES </tt> in red pieces between the settings.ini fileCPU and a human.<br>UPDATE in 1.1::Pressing {{WiimoteAButton}} Hitting A on the second wiimote controller will cause control of red to be passed to wiimote 2controlled by the second controller (rather than share on the first controller). (overrides <tt>This does not automatically turn off computer control ONEWIIMOTE </tt>)of the red pieces.

The GameCube controller is treated almost like an extension of the Wiimote. So you can switch from pushing buttons on Wiimote 1 to pushing buttons on GameCube 1 (and vice-versa) and the game wont notice. If you want the GameCube controller to be player 2 only, you need to plug it into port 2. Of course, you only ''need'' one controller of any kind to play the game. == SettingsSettiiiings.ini ==If you want, you can put a settingssettiiiings.ini file in the same directory as the game (root of the sd SD for wiiload) and change some settings through thereof the defaults with it. This is entirely optional.<br> You can set how many pieces are needed in a line to win, and adjust the size of the boardor set the AI difficulty (setting this to 10 or higher will introduce noticeable lag). See the included settingssettiiiings.ini for way more informationdetails.<br>UPDATE in 1.1::"You should consider making it Sett''iiii''ngsThe included settiiiings.ini, or something to may be messed up when opened with an editor that effect ;)" -- [doesn't understand *nix line endings. Either [Userhttp:MetaFight|MetaFight// get an editor]] 15:33, 2 April 2009 that can read these files (UTCgood to have in general):Now supports either name ;D, or start nagging random people to format it for windows. I know I said future versions will have a notepad happy settiiiings.ini, but I am back to coding on Linux and don't feel like doing the windows thing every time.
== Images ==
Starting in <s>v1.1</s> <s>1.2</s> v1.'''2+''', you can put custom images into ''path''/images/ and the game will load them. See [[Media:IiiiIiii2.1-images.rar|sample images]] and included readme for more info.This readme might have the same issues as the settiiiings.ini file. Whatever. Deal with it. I already told you how. :P Special thank you to drchink from tehskeen for pointing out the first of many path loading bugs. Per your suggestion, I made it look like the piece is sliding down (very fast) rather than just appearing there. Now post your images here so everyone can enjoy. (Doesn't have to only be drchink, if YOU make some good images, post them here too :) ).{| class="wikitable" style="text-align:left;"|-! Name !!

== History ==
=== [[Media:Iiii_v2.1-TR_source.rar|v2.1-TR]] ===
* simple recompile for compatibility with new wiimotes
=== [[Media:Iiii_source1_1Iiii2.1 source.rar|v2.1]] ===* fixed the file loading from SD. again. was broken since HBC 1.0.2* added USB support (?)* added GameCube controller support* bunch of behind the scenes changes === [[Media:Iiii2.0 source.rar|v2.0]] ===* added AI by Keith Pomakis* rewrote win() to be smarter (pointless now that I found that AI, but it was a lot of work so I'm adding it here anyway)* Wiimote can be held sideways (push two (2) to drop)* misc. cleanup === [ v1.2]+ ===Download [[Media:Iiii source1 1.rar‎|v1.1]] and replace iiii.cpp with [ this]. <s>For 1.2+, the fix was to make std::string path be global and edit line 564 to reflect that.(Thanks to rck`d & TD-Linux for the idea for this fix. TD-Linux had a better solution, but I didn't implement it yet.)</s> Even better solution now.* Really ''really'' loads images from ''path''/images/ now* Pieces slide down rather than teleporting to the bottom. === [[Media:Iiii source1 1.rar‎|v1.1]] ===
* Tries to load images from ''path''/images/
* Red player can switch to second wiimote Wiimote during play
* settiiiings.ini also acceptable as settings' file name
=== [[Media:Iiii_source1_0Iiii source1 0.rar‎|v1.0]] ===* Initial release.
== Why the Name? ==
The main reason I chose this name is that some people think too many programs are being released with "ii " in their names. Some of these names would normally have nothing to do with the ii sound, but the names were mangled to force an "ii " into them. I don't really care one way or another. I tend to think of ii as a way to identify the program as a wii Wii program. Anyway, this name was chosen especially because it would get under the skin of certain people :D. Hi guys! You know who you are because you are the ones feeling pissed off right now :P.<br> <br>
If you don't like that excuse, then the 4 dots on the top of iiii represent the 4 pieces you need to line up to win.
