pySioGame Changelog

New in version 1.30.811

August 14th, 2013
  • level data and game preferences including currently selected language are now stored in $XDG_DATA_HOME/pysiogame or $HOME/.local/share/pysiogame depending on configuration.
  • new games added including activities to teach kids reading clock hands, one more multiplication table activity and a little tool useful in learning various types of shapes.
  • some tweaks done to the way titles are being displayed
  • scrolling categories/games in menu now moves them one at a time rather than skipping to the very bottom + added support for mouse wheel for scrolling.
  • quitting game through the bottom-right button requires two clicks (not necessarily double click), Esc and in windowed version "X" button gets you out of the game without confirmation.
  • paint game - brush size now being changed by slider rather than +/- buttons
  • window can now be resized (but exactly as with toggling fullscreen on and off - changing window size will also reload the current activity, so don't do it in the middle of working on something)
  • handwriting font redrawn: advantages: one font for all languages, no more unknown authors and licences for fonts, more letters available including accents, tildes and what not, disadvantages: it's not as visually pleasing as the previous ones and there's no arrow guides the previous fonts had.
