Title: Hearts Card Game
Post by: Martin Iturbide on January 21, 2021, 10:52:20 pm
Hi

I'm trying to learn the Hearts card game (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RSr_89K_65c&t=273s).

Tellie ported hearts and I had installed from the netlabs-exp repository.  "yum install hearts".
I'm experiencing an issue, when you select File->New, it takes a long time from the cards to shuffle and being put in your deck to deal the cards. Tellie is not experimenting that.

Can someone also try that game and let me know?

Regards

Update: Corrected my card gaming English.

 Hi Martin,

 I installed Hearts and took a look at it (don't know how to play it yet). It starts fine with a game ready to go. If I then do as you say and select File->New then yes, it places the new game cards VERY slowly. Not sure how it will do if I actually play the game offered when started is complete...

Regards,

That is exactly what I'm experiencing. On the hearts card game you have several shuffles (games?) until one player gets 100 points, then the game is over. When the next shuffle begins on this hearts game port, it also places the cards very slowly.

Hi, each round (shuffle) is called a hand. I used to like playing hearts, where did Tellie post the game?

I haven't played it yet but installed it via RPM a couple weeks ago I guess it was.

Hi all,
As I told Martin, i don't see the slowness on my comp.
If new cards are shuffle or when game is over  and new cards are giving it takes a sec to get new. I will look if i can find the culpit why it's slow for you guys.

And is this all with a VM or plain OS2?

Dis you set in settings the card speed ?

Hi Tellie, it's on real hardware here. There's a noticeable delay when choosing cards, whether to trade or to play.
Thanks

Yes, setting it to fast helps. Still seems a bit slow but usable.
