1.2 Version History
v1.0 - Initial Release
1.3 Future Plans
Play against a very difficult AI
There are no plans for future upgrades
at this time.
1) Unzip the file CONNECT4.ZIP
into any directory, usually your Link Software's directory (e.g. C:\WINLINK).
2) Run your Link Software and send the
file CONNECT4.83P to your TI-83.
3) Run the program prgmCONNECT4 to begin.
4) Visit SiCoDe's website at http://sicode.ticalc.org
for news and program updates.
The aim of Connect 4 is very simple.
You and a computer AI take turns to place a token in one of the eight columns.
If four of your tokens (white) "connect" either diagonally, vertically
or horizontally - you've won. If four of the AI's tokens (black) "connect"
then you've lost.
The AI is quite good, so don't expect
an easy win...
2nd / Enter
The AI on Connect 4 isn't stupid,
to say the least. Try not to make any mistakes however, and lure it into
a situation where no-matter what it could do you will win, and you should
be able to beat it most if not all of the time.
