Matrix control and Master Mind


    Apr 24 2007 | 4:26 pm
    A student and I are doing a laptop duo with Max and SuperCollider. We are using WingMan game controllers as our performer interface. My student suggested that we use a video game (invisible to the audience) as our "score." As we play the game, the signals from the WingMn will send messages to Max and SuperCollider via OSC.
    All the technology works. What we need is the game. We have narrowed it to Craps and MasterMind. It will take just an hour or so to implement Craps but MasterMind will take much longer. Matrixcontrol gets us started. I know how to design the .pct files for backgrounds and multistate buttons and I know how to put and get. So my question is - has someone already implemented MasterMind in Max? If so, would you be willing to share? We would need the actual patch because we want trigger events based on the outcome at each stage of the game.
    In case you are not familiar with MasterMind, here is a link. Note the encouraging presence of "js."

      It's a good little programming exercise; my uncle wrote a version for fun back in the early 80's IIRC.
