WinJack - v1.64
This is the latest version of WinJack!
The card game WinJack contains solitaire, parlor and casino games,
which can be played alone, against the computer, or within a network /
internet against human opponents (it's also possible to mix humans with
computer players). Up to 6 players are able to play against each other.
The individual resizable window lets the user resize the game on the fly.
The graphics can be choosed out of different card sets and desktop themes.
It is also possible to add your own designs! Up to 512 simultanious
flying cards and jetons are providing life to the game.
Statistics and HiScore lists are generated automatically - of course.
Each user can define his own player, which can have user defined images
and a name. The player profile can be used to send special messages (with
a specified image) over the network, while the game is running.
Cheating is possible - but beware, if somebody finds it out, it can
cost much money. When playing poker and getting bankrupt, you can ask for
money from the other players. Furthermore you can send comments to a specified
person within the game - the others will see only incomplete sentences..
Beside the normal game modes, you have also the 'casino mode'. In this
mode, you are able to collect virtual money with your player. This virtual
account is stored whithin your player profile, and you'll get it the next
time in the casino as start money. The different games and computer players
will change their behaviour if you earn more and more points.
The add on package 'Poker-Pack' is an extension
to fullfill the missing games from 4Flush. When playing in the network,
4Flush games are able to play with WinJack games, if the games are available
on all machines.
The shareware is not timelimited and nearly full testable.
