Online DOS BlockOut with SQL scoreboard

Post by jlivingstonsg »

---

Hi.

I found some years ago a game that we played 1989-1990 called BlockOut that is a 3D Tetris.
And I can now play the original game in a DOS emulator in a browser.
Just Google: blockout online
and you can try some in your browser.
But I could only save my score in browser cookies and that bothered me.
Then I found a game that could save score on a server scoreboard webpage called BlockOut2.
But I had to download it and install it.
Then some years later I found a version on GitHub for a browser in open source that worked quite well.
Just Google: cubeout blockout
and you can find it.
And the code is here.
github dot com/Ringdingcoder/CubeOut

But I can still not upload score on a server scoreboard so I decided to try my self.

gamereality.se/blockout/index.php

It save score both in browser and on a SQL server webpage now. :)

I want to make it look and work exactly like the original so if you want to help me,
then I have some code here, on my version on GitHub.
github dot com/jlivingstonsg/BlockOut

Any bugs or suggestions?

MagI.

Number 30 in BlockOut2 on level "Out of control"
