Fun & Games - Coin Flip

Description: With Coin Flip, you can simulate the flip of up to six coins, or the roll of up to six dice. Just select the number, then click the item you want to toss, and it does. Coin Flip also animates the action, and you can customise the length and variablity of the animation too. Lastly, Coin Flip allows the user a choice of multiple themes.

Neat, the interface is okay, not my favorite, but, ya know. Interesting idea, I like it. 4/5. smiley

Nice idea! The graphics interface leaves a lot to be desired, though. And shouldn't it have a main "flip" or "roll" button (depending on the selection)? It wasn't immediately intuitive to me at first...

Thanks! I had been blind to the poor interface simply because I was used to it, If you know what I mean. I'm glad the new one worked out.

It does not work under Tiger 8a369?? Don't know why yet. Maybe upload it again with the new dice and coins. maybe I simply corrupted my version when I added the new artwork.

Really? I didn't change a thing except drag the new image files into the results folder, replacing the old ones. What doesn't work about it?

doesnt load in 8a369. the icon appears in the widget bar (and it's a very nice looking icon). however, the widget never launches. Console gives the following message: "item version = 10000" Whatever that's supposed to mean.

Garcon,

I never tested the older version in Tiger, so I don't know if it ever worked in Dashboard.

I've got it to work now, but for some reason it only shows the results if you start out with more than 3 dice or coins. Then if you reduce the number they show up. Weird. It also loads correctly, but then offsets the background by like 10 or so pixels down and to the right. I will send you the edited plist.info.

Yeah, this Widget was one of the very first to go up on the websites; that's why it's so high.

Thanks, semiawsome!
