British bingo 1.39

Sat, 05/04/2014 - 12:29pm
British bingo runs in your browser and uses 3 by 9 boards. The game simulates the other players. Players make mistakes and chat. Players leave, join, and re-join between and during games. You can have over 10,000 players. You can hear the players and the caller talk. You can change the sizes to fit a small screen

Release Notes: This release makes the numbers called so far look like balls (there are also new sounds). There are more reasons for players to leave the game and more unusual things for the caller to say. On an iPad, the warning about the screen being in landscape mode is only shown for a short time. There is another animation when a player has a "line", which moves parts of the game around. It is now less likely that the same two animations occur twice in a row. Some variables names which were partly shortened are now shortened as a whole. This release also fixes two bugs. One bug stopped the game.
