Well for a college assignment I had to make a Scrabble Helper for PC. It was quite a challenge and I enjoyed doing it. So now I have decided that it would be much more useful on a portable computer, so I decided to put my PSP coding skills to the test and port it to PSP.
I started about 6 hours ago and it's working pretty well if I do say so myself
So what is Scrabble Help you ask? Basically it's something that will help you in a good old game of Scrabble. You know scrabble right? Say you have a set of letters "JTRA". The program will search a dictionary for all possible words you can make out of those letters! So in the above example it would return:
ART, JAR, RAJ, RAT, TAR.
Neat right? Wait! There's more! The program also supports wild cards. A wild card in Scrabble Help is "_" (underscore). That means it will substitute any letter in the alphabet to try and make a word. Words that are found with the underscore have that letter displayed in lower case. For example if you have "JTR_", the program will return:
aRT, cRT, JaR, JeT, JoT, JuT, RaJ, RaT, ReT, RoT, RuT, TaR, ToR, TRw, TRy.
Right now there is a limitation that only the first 175 or so words that are found will be displayed because the screen isn't big enough to display any more I'll be working on that some time though.
Improve interface and allow more words to be printed
Allow user to change minimum amount of letters in a word
Give the scrabble score of each word
Copy the folder "scrabble-help" into your GAME directory if you are using a custom firmware.
If you are using FW 1.50, download the kxploited version.
