The Dessert Stock Market Game
Version 2.7.6
I made a simple game in C++ that I invented in TheHelper chat. It's called the Dessert Stock Market game; it's simpler than it looks. The rules are explained in the game, but I will tell them to you here anyway:
  • There are 4 different types of stock: Cookies, Muffins, Pies, and Cakes.
  • You trade stocks for other stocks based on the Current Exchange Rate (CER).
  • For example, if the CER says that 2 Cookies = 1 Muffin, you could trade 2 muffins for 4 cookies.
  • Each player starts out with 2 Cookies, and they trade them from there.
  • You can set a goal, or just play for a really long amount of time.
  • The game does support 1-player.

This is really neat, Knight! :thup:
Thanks; the people who played it on the chat seem to think so, too. Get ready for a version of this game that will be playable on the chat :D

Don't get ready too early. It might take a while :).

Nice game (Y)! (better with more people, though)

Thanks. Hopefully you'll be able to overcome those annoying problems you're having :p

I updated the first post with a bold, red warning. It's somewhat hard to miss.

does the cakes work now? :D
Um...the pies to cakes does not work, so if you're planning on getting some cakes, get them from muffins or cookies ;) I am working on fixing that as we speak.

Also, I added a poll: do you want the game to keep the decimals or to do away with them? Vote now :thup:
Added a To-do list as well.

Pineapple gave me the suggestion to create a version of the game that uses money. I will be working on that as well as anything else that you guys think would improve the game.
Thanks :thup:

I fixed the link (again); it should be a direct link to the file now. If it isn't, please let me know. Thanks :thup:

There are only 2 more days left for the poll, and I can't do very much based on a tie ;)

A bug:
I was playing with 2 players (Artificial and Artificial).
On the first round the CER was 1 cookie = 1 muffin (can't remember the rest).
Both changed their cookies to muffins.
Then the CER became 2 cookies = 1 muffin. The first player changed his muffins to cookies, and the other changed 0 muffins to cookies.
Guess what they ended up with? 0 cookies and 0 muffins both. :)

And you could make it so, that it wouldn't quit the game when you enter "1" as the answer for how many players there are, but it'd just ask again. ^_^

> I'll learn how to do that...today
Good. :)

I'm fixing the many bugs and adding some more functionality to the game. The fixed version had better be out soon.

I won't learn how to do that today, sorry :p

Another update with version 2.5! I added new screenshots and a little bit of functionality (thanks to SFilip for the ideas for this update :thup:). Download the latest version from the attachment or the link. Also, if you want to submit any screenshots, feel free to do so. Input from other people is always greatly appreciated.

Also, thanks for everyone who voted in the poll! The decimals are staying until further notice.

Nice game. When you first play it, it is really complicated, but you get used to it. A version for the chat will be cool, as well as having a version with money in it.

I found a bug with it though. If you put a letter into "How much of the stock would you like to trade" it will accept it and then at the end of the round, when you press enter for the next round the program crashes and closes.

Thanks for the feedback :thup:
I don't think C++ can operate in a chat room, but after maybe a few months, I might be able to make a version that operates online ;)
I'm working on the version with money in it.
I sort of fixed the bug; now the program doesn't crash, it just goes to the next round.

I'll release that version once I make some more changes. Keep the feedback coming :thup:
