Upgraded shuffling of the deck

Post by Jonas » Tue Oct 04, 2011 4:01 pm

Today we upgraded our Random Number generator for the shuffling of the decks in online games.

In theory you shouldn't notice any difference, but who knows ;)

I am not sure I have noticed much of a difference, but I also don't buy into peoples conspiracy theories on this. To think that someone might insert into the shuffling code:

IF #NIC = 'DUST' and #CARD-SUIT = 'CLUBS'
PERFORM DISCARD-AND-PICK-ANOTHER-CARD
END-IF
*
REPEAT UNTIL #HAND = 'LOSER'
...
END-REPEAT

Can I program for ya, SCE?
