Although I study business management as my discipline, by some chance I am taking a Java module this year and am currently working on building a 'Connect Four' game. So far, I have succeeded making the game work in the console, however, I have utterly no idea about how to present the game through GUI. I mean, I could build a GUI window in a separate class but could you help me extending the class methods I created before to the GUI class that I don't have to write the whole programme again?
Many thanks. The classes live in assignment folder as well as the main class, PlayConnect4, and the EasyReader class which could be used as exactly same as java. Scanner lives in sheffield folder. This way you could have a simple text box in a frame with a couple of buttons. Learn more. Asked 3 years, 2 months ago. Active 3 years, 2 months ago.

Viewed times. This might be either a too basic and a too huge question to ask. Andrew Do Andrew Do 3 2 2 bronze badges. This is a very broad question, and lots of tutorials can be found if you simply do some Googling. I'd recommend taking a look at docs. In the future, please do some research before posting a question.

The framework provides a GUI with which the user can train, interact with and measure the strength of various agents and more. The whole software is written in Java and can be easily extended by experienced programmers. The framework already provides several inbuilt agents which can be selected as opponents for the user or which can play matches against each other.
All step-size adaptation algorithms that are described in this thesis can be selected and configured by the user in the C4GPF. At the time this work was created, several step-size adaptation algorithms are supported by our framework. Skip to content. MIT License.

Constructing Agents for Connect-4: Initial Notes
Latest commit. Git stats 26 commits 1 branch 0 tags. Failed to load latest commit information. View code. Authors Markus Thill markus. Animated matches between different agents: The user can select two agents and follow matches of these two agents against each other on the board.
If desired, both agents interact automatically with each other and the user can watch the animated match. It is also possible to use a step-by-step mode in which the user decides when an agent performs the next move. Due to the fast inbuilt Minimax agent, the user can analyze the exact game-theoretic values and state-action values of arbitrary positions in a matter of a few milliseconds. Benchmark options: It is possible to set up competitions between agents, where both opponents play a certain number of matches against each other swapping the sides after each match if desired.
After the competition is completed the user is provided with some statistics about the competition and the user can then also analyze individual matches.
Another option is to use a simple benchmark for an agent, where the framework determines a scalar value, indicating the strength of the agent, based on a predefined number of matches against a perfect playing agent. This benchmark can also be used to estimate the strength of completely deterministic agents. Built-in Reinforcement Learning RL agent, as described below, which learns with n-tuple systems.Thank you for your post, I have to do exactly the same thing for an assignment, and your solution works, whereas mine does not.
I will now try to work out the differences. Thanks again. I personally don't like to fill an array with the spacers. I prefer to add such things in the to. String method, just before it's printed out, as they have no value in the rest of the code. Thank you so much for the code. It was really helpful. I just had a question. How would you handle the ArrayIndexOutofBounds exception in this program?
The code compiles and runs but the board won't print again after 1 move. Creating a Connect-Four Game in Java. Problem: Connect four is a two-player board game in which the players alternately drop colored disks into a seven-column, six-row vertically suspended grid, as shown below.

It is tiny 2kB, including dependencies. For more details, see the Installation docs page. The Redux Essentials tutorial is a "top-down" tutorial that teaches how to use Redux the right way, using our latest recommended APIs and best practices.
We recommend starting there. The redux channel of the Reactiflux Discord community is our official resource for all questions related to learning and using Redux. Reactiflux is a great place to hang out, ask questions, and learn - come join us!
Redux is a valuable tool for organizing your state, but you should also consider whether it's appropriate for your situation. Don't use Redux just because someone said you should - take some time to understand the potential benefits and tradeoffs of using it. Yes, these guidelines are subjective and vague, but this is for good reason. The point at which you should integrate Redux into your application is different for every user and different for every application.
His goal was to create a state management library with a minimal API but completely predictable behavior. Redux makes it possible to implement logging, hot reloading, time travel, universal apps, record and replay, without any buy-in from the developer.
Redux evolves the ideas of Fluxbut avoids its complexity by taking cues from Elm. Even if you haven't used Flux or Elm, Redux only takes a few minutes to get started with. The whole state of your app is stored in an object tree inside a single store.
It only takes a minute to sign up. I was wondering if you guys could point out any mistakes I've made in this program, and how to improve the code. It's a simple console-based Connect Four game.
You use to place your piece in the column you want. The goal of the game is to get four in a row, either vertically, horizontally or diagonally. There's lot of code duplication, since you have embedded the token to check O vs X into your method pairs. So, instead of:. Then there is no confusion as to which player has which symbol.
A player who enters an invalid move forfeits a turn and gets no opportunity to correct the input. That seems rather unfair.
Furthermore, "That's not a valid column" should be more helpful: error messages should not only state what went wrong, but provide guidance on what inputs are allowable.
The names CreateBoard and PrintBoard strongly suggest that you should have an object representing a board. Then you would have a constructor and a toString method. When checking for a winner, you're examining the entire board. You only need to look at the coordinates that are collinear with the last chip played.
The loops are cumbersome. Variable names like counter and flag are not useful at all. Instead of counterpick something meaningful like row or streakLength. Instead of flag variables, use proper flow of control techniques like continuebreakand return. Sign up to join this community. The best answers are voted up and rise to the top.
