A Possibly fun DVD Profiler Plugin Idea?
« on: February 13, 2012, 01:14:39 PM »
I know some of you don't go to Invelos anymore... so thought I would post this here as well.

I know absolutely nothing about making plugins... so don't know if this is even possible. But I thought of an idea that could be a fun waste of time type thing. So I thought I would see if anyone would be interested in trying to create it. And to see if I am the only one out there that thinks it could be fun.

My idea is if you could take the front cover art (Even better if you can take images from the gallery) and turn them into a jigsaw puzzle. Yes I am a bit of a jigsaw puzzle geek!

So I was thinking it could be something like...

- Take images from the cover art / Gallery (if possible a must!)
- Selection of picture to use (if Gallery images is possible)
- Control difficulty with # of pieces
---- Easy = 25 pieces
---- Medium = 50 pieces
---- Hard = 75 Pieces
---- Hardest = 100 pieces
- Possibly have a timer in 2 phases... time how long it takes you and count down clock to solve puzzle could be fun

Like I said... thought it would be something fun to do. Any interest out there?

Sheesh. When you come up with ideas, you go all out, huh? :laugh:

You'd be better off going to one of the many sites that offer daily puzzles and find one that lets you input your own pictures. I created a basic puzzle program back in college (all slices were just squares with prongs instead of wild shapes, piece snapped only if they were in the correct grid square with the other correct next to it.) unfortunately I lost it during a major drive failure and didn't feel the need to redesign it. The fact that I haven't even tried creating a Profiler plugin notwithstanding, I wouldn't even consider taking that one on!
I have a collection.
It can be found here.
No need to check it often.
I update it only twice a year!
