Co-Op Puzzle game

Semensterproject


For my final project of this semester I would like to continue and finish developing this “Two-Player Puzzle-game”. The mechanic of two patcher interacting with each other really fasinated me, so I wanted to create somthing with the objects that made this funtion possible: "udpsend" and "udpreceive". It would be played on two separate computers and with two separate players, which can only communicate through the message boxes of these objects . The players would have to solve different kinds of puzzles by cooperating with each other and exchanging information. They would go through multiple levels to get to the end of the game.

Here is how the game would work: Every level contains one puzzle but It is split into two parts, one for each of the players. For example player one has the base information in their patcher that player two needs to understand and solve their side of the puzzle. So, player one needs to convey this information to player two by writing it to them via the message boxes. Player two can then use this information to decode their side of the puzzle and get for exampel a number code. This code (new information) then can be conveyed back to player one because they both need the code to "unlock" the reward for solving the puzzel. This game is build on the curiousness of a human and the willingness to work together to achive a goal, as well as the friendliness/understanding to chare the information so both player can get to the reward and advance in the game.

With the reward "unlocked" the level would be complete and the players can advance to the next stage. Each level would be harder than the one before but so far I was only able to create the first level, where the players are told what the main mechanics of the game are and how everything works.

Here are the MAX patchers for the two players:


Patcher for Player 1: File:Puzzel Game Player 1.maxpat

Player 1 needs to download the file for the morse code audio. This file needs to be put in the same directory as the general max files. The audio file for the morse code needs to be draged and droped into the the playlist on the left side of the phone. This is also shown in the setup video. It also demonstrates the mechanics of the game patcher.

Patcher for Player 2: File:Puzzel Game Player 2.maxpat

Player 2 does not need to download any files. The video demonstrates the mechanics of the game patcher.

Notes

I fixed the issue I had with my last project. Now it works like I intended: I updated my first patcher by experimenting with the sound-text-video conversion. I copied the basic build for the jit.matrix object, that you can find when right clicking the objeckt and then clicking on help, where you can assign certain planes a value. I made it so that, in the window with each frequenz a different value blicks to the rhythm of the melodie.
