Filed one bug report, but program seems to be solid. Taken through the paces with a couple rounds with two different people and got my wife to download too. Played single player version as well.

Some of the customization options don't seem to work but not sure if they are supposed to yet? Actually background was the only one that applied. Card decks and backs weren't able to be changed. Wasn't sure if I should file a bug on those.

Might be more appealing as an end-product if there were customization options (sounds & backgrounds) that were like a casino (though the new riverboat background is good for that).

One annoyance.... at the end of a round when it summarizes your wins (and your opponents) and speaks each one in succession... I would turn that off and let it just stack our winnings if that were an option.

I can see people passing the time on their phones and tablets with this.

Thanks for the development effort on this! Great job, programmers!

there is a setting to turn sounds off, Barry didn't like them either, because he likes to listen to music when he's playing.

Thanks for the report.

Could you walk me through what happening with the freeze. Is it temporary, can you keep playing etc.

The screen shot with the bug report looked like your on the betting phase where the next step would be to either change your bet, or press the bet button to deal out your next set of cards. Then you get the opportunity to "hold" cards.


So lets make sure your video drivers are up to date to rule any glitches there. A handy utility for that is slim drivers:
https://www.slimwareutilities.com/slimdrivers.php

Note: when you install Slimdrivers, they ask if you want to install AVG antivirus or something, just uncheck that if you already have an antivirus software.

What this software does is look over all the components of your system and then locates the current drivers for each devices. We're specifically interested in seeing if your Graphics driver is current.

There isn't currently a leader board.

In the next update we'll have some information however about your current games that you're playing with folks. Taping on the players image will show you your and their total winnings and how many rounds you've gone. etc.

Its the easiest game out, Luvcookie, you don't have to remember where cards are... :lol: keep your pairs, try and make runs in any suit, or the same suit if you can, for example....6.7.8.9.10
a royal flush is the best, 10,j,q,k,a in hearts.
you win if you get 2 pair, 3 of a kind, etc etc.
Where it says Start a game, it opens up to where you type in someones name, Sandbar for instance, you then play a game, and wait until they respond next time they are online. It's very simple.
If you play single game, you are just playing yourself to see how high a score you can achieve... :P

I should get back to playing as you probably released updates since I played last.

It grows on you... I can see this being successful... especially on the tablet/phone platforms. And especially if you plan to use this as a basis to develop other variations of poker. Texas Hold'em is popular and there are lots of hold'em players out there as seen on other sites.

Having a "legal in the US" version (e.g. no real money bets possible) with your graphics should take market share from these other sites (I hate Zynga!).
