Mancunian shuffle

This classic game is a basic brain training exercise. It can improve visual memory, strategic and associative skills and is at the same time an entertaining playful challenge. The scoring method uses an algorithm to translate the game success into points, following the principle that the fewer card turns a player needs to clear the tableau the more points a player scores.
This game in its current form as presented here is a prototype and many adaptions for a variety of subject matters and learning purposes are possible.

mancunian shuffle is made from a few hundreds of photographs taken with several mobile phones on my everyday bicycle trips through my home City of Manchester in Northwest England.

I did a very simple version of this at the pandemic’s start. Yours is better than mine. Great job!

Congratulations, very good, I loved it!!!!
I had to finish it although I think I need to improve my visual memory a bit…. 🙂
Is it very difficult to do with Adobe Captivate?
Is it necessary to have knowledge of javascript or with variables and advanced actions it could be achieved?

Best regards!

Thank you, Maria. I’m glad you liked it. Whether it is difficult to make with Adobe Captivate? Yes, a little. Whether you need javascript or it can be done with advanced actions? Yes, you need javascript (knowledge). You can do a lot with advanced actions alone, but JS gives you more freedom in making things dynamic at runtime.

Sure, the truth is that it looks great.
I’ve been thinking about learning javascript for a long time. I don’t know if you know any online course that gives the basics to implement this kind of things.

Thanks a lot!

Maria, it depends in which context you want to learn and use JS. The big bulk of JS plays out in web development, more precise HTML, CSS and Javascript are the A-team. When you want to enter this huge arena then the W3 Schools are quite good to learn, try it out and as compendium. If, on the other hand, you are more specifically interested in JS and Captivate, then have a look at Greg Stager’s profile (the man below). He published here a number of JS tuts all related to Captivate. Maybe start here. ..Klaus

Thank you very much Klaus, in my case I would like to focus on the link with Adobe Captivate, but I did not know if it would be good to start with acquiring basic knowledge in general of Javascript to better understand what Greg explains for example.
I have the link where he shows examples (https://community-portal-prod-previewdata.s3.us-west-2.amazonaws.com/files/2019/09/9213246a7c4cadeedded/index.html) and I have seen that he has a lot more stuff.

Thank you very much for your time!!!

Certainly, a broader understanding of JavaScript would be helpful but it would not be a requirement to get started.

Just like learning an instrument – music theory will be helpful and in the end, make you a better musician but it would not be a requirement to get started.

Or like learning a foreign language – everyone has an insertion point. Some may start with learning the alphabet and some numbers – others with simple conversations like greetings – others with colors or family member names. Others with a book of common phrases to get themselves across town.

In this case, your insertion point is in the context of Captivate. The reverse is also likely to be true. Developing an understanding of JavaScript via Captivate specific applications will make it easier for you to grasp the more complex methods of JavaScript in general going forward.

Yes, I agree with everything you said.
What I need is to find a way to understand how it works and see all the possibilities it offers to try things and move forward.

Best regards and thank you very much for sharing the knowledge.

Does anyone else enjoy the fact that someone with the handle – KDMEMORY – submitted a memory game?

Well played.

Cheers Greg. Perhaps I shouldn’t spill the beans. I’ve built a memory game once, about 16 years ago. Then with macromedia/adobe Director and Lingo (code). Well, may it rest in peace. My handle kdmemory came up in those days.
