Card Games - Checking Which Cards Have Already Been Dealt.
So, let's say I wanted to make an online card game. Simple enough, right? I can do the graphics, the server is ready, the faces/profiles (see my Face Maker! ) are decent... but before I begin programming, say, Bridge, I need a little help on dealing the cards.

My first thought was to simply randomly assign a value & suit to each card as it was dealt. Unfortunately, there might be four or five Queen of Hearts by the time I was done dealing.

My second idea was to keep a boolean 'already dealt' array going - whenever a card was randomly selected, the program would check the array to see if it were already dealt. If it had already been dealt, then it would select a different, random card. If it hadn't been dealt, then the card would be dealt, and the boolean array updated.

The problem with the second option is that once you've dealt 51 cards from the deck, the game is probably going to select many, many random cards that will be rejected (because they've already been dealt) before the final card is randomly selected. This makes the poor server work harder than it should.

So... has anyone ever used a better way to deal cards? =)

Setting Cards In A Rank To Declare Winner In A Card Game
I am writing a card game called Euchre in which trump changes from hearts, clubs, spades, and dimonds in no particular order. The Jack of the declared trump is the highest followed by the Jack of the same color then Ace, King, Queen, 10, and 9 of the chosen suit. Players declare trump before the game begins. My problem is when a person has played a card how do I compare the other players cards to decide who wins? Any suggestions would help thanks.

Painting Corners Of Cards With Cards.dll
First I would like to thank all of the people who have posted answers on this forum. I use to code VB 5.0 back in college. I hadn't done any VB since 98 or so. Just stated with VB .NET 2003 a couple of weeks ago and have been searching this form all the time. Lots of my questions where answered by just searching.

My current project is a solitaire game for my dad. I wrote on in 5.0 (lost the source code) and now reduing it again in .NET a few years later. I am using cards.dll after reading this post. Everything is ok other then the fact that the corners of the cards are always white. I need to change the color of the corners depening on where the card is. I don't remember having this problem before. I believe that if I could set the corners to transparent then every thing would work fine. Does anybody know how to do that? Otherwise I will have an ugly solitare game or have to paint the corners manually.

Thanks in Advanced,


File List Wild Card
I have a drive list, a directory list, and a file list. in my project.
I know that you can use a wild like this,,,
FileList1.Pattern = "*.jpg"

Does anyone know if you can add more than 1 wild card? because I would like the user to be able to view all picture types that the Windows Picture Viewer allows, not just .jpg

I thought about adding .jpg, .bmp, etc... option buttons but my form doesnt have enough room on it.

Brawl Card Game In VB (Card Deck Questions)
I wanted to make a TCP/IP online version of the card game Brawl by cheapass games.

I have some general questions, as I've been a VB programmer for 2-3 years, but haven't done much (anything) with game programming, or objects. (I was taught in college procedurally, so my Object creation isn't what is needs to be in my opinion.)

The short explanation of brawl (card-questions to follow) is this...

2 Players each with a 35 card deck which consists of the following cards:
Bases: Use to start a pile
Hits: (coming in 3 colors Red, Green, Blue)
Blocks: (also in the 3 colors) These stop your oppoent from playing anymore hits on a pile
Press: (3 colors) counters the effect of a block
Freeze: Freezes a pile

You have up to 3 piles (which must start with a Base Card, the base card can only be played if there are less than 3 piles), and then play Hits on your end of the base in hopes of getting more hits on the base than your opponent does. Once a pile is frozen, you count up the hits, and whoever has more wins the base.
Whoever wins more bases, wins the game.
Blocks will prevent the opponent from playing any more hits on that pile. (can only be played on a Hit)
Presses will undo the effects of the block (can only be played on a Block)
So you have up to 3 piles to play on, and each player has a discard pile (which they can play the top card of, instead of the top card on their deck).

Ok, now the questions...

I have a Card Class which has:
Color: (red, green or blue)
Type: (hit, block, base, press, freeze)
Number: The number of this card in the deck. You may have for example, 8 Blue Hits, 2 Red Hits, 4 Green Hits, 2 Bases, 2 Blue Blocks, 1 Blue Press, etc.

Deck Class which has:
Array of Card (1 to 35)
Current: Pointer to the array slot holding the top most card.

Is the right way to do the deck really an array with a pointer? I'd need a Deck class for the Deck to draw from, an initialy empty deck to use as a discard pile as wel.

I was debating making the deck class in a collection instead of an array, but you really won't ever have more than 35 cards in the deck.

Now for each of the 3 piles, you could theoretically have between 0 and infinity (if I allow more than 2 players to play).

Determining Credit Card Vs. Debit Or Check Card
There are many functions available that implement credit card identification
and number validation -- meaning you can decide, based on the number, if a
card is a MasterCard or Visa and if the number passes the Luhn Formula or
MOD 10 algorithm for the checksum. What I'm looking for however is the
scheme to determine is a card is a check or debit card versus a credit card.

Anyone know if this can be done by examining the account number pattern?

List All The Items In The System Tray

Is it possible to get a list of the items in the system tray?

Or better still, it is possible to make a program that takes over from the system tray - accepting all the Shell_NotifyIcon requests, and displaying their icons?

If you haven't guessed, i'm trying to make a shell... but i'm being stumped by how to get the icons in the system tray to show up in my little picturebox i set aside for the systray area... lol. It just suddenly struck me, that I don't know how to go about doing it - would it be API? would it be an inbuilt VB function? would i have to write a new sub for it...? lol you get the idea.

Thanks in advance,

TCG With X No. Of Cards
Im trying to make a TCG (card game), I was wondering how you could show each card you hold in your hand without using a picture box per card?
The number of cards in hand is usually 7 but can be unlimited sometimes.

The card must be able to disappear (discard/removed), if possible: drag & drop and rotate 90 degrees.

Currently I have 2 pictureboxes (per card) representing the card and a image on the card.


Oh, and this game has lots of different card that affects the game, is it a better idea to code each effect or write every possible parts of each effect and call what the effect uses up?

Any ideas?
Thanks in advance

Using Cards.DLL
how would i call up a card (doesnt matter which, we'll use Ace of Spades) into an image control using Cards.DLL (its filename its c:windowscards.dll, and we can assume the image is named image1)

Cards Dll
Hi folks,

I'm trying to make a card game with home made cards. I've seen cards.dll of windows and it is very handy. How can i make a DLL with my own cards (so the dll must include picture and some data of a card) can someone give me a starter or a tutorial about this ?

Does anyone have any info on the file cards.dll that used to (and might still) come with Windows for all the card games that come with Windows like Solitaire? Is it possible to use that dll in my card programs?

Im using the same version of cards.dll on two different computers. My home computer which uses windows XP displays the cards correctly on screen for my blackjack game. The machine in school which I copied cards from my machine to so it would be the same version only displays 4 small dots, when on mine it would display a card, The other computer is in school but I don't see why it is not working as my code is the exact same?

ID Cards
