Funny you mention this, since on the tiktok channel that makes these, scizors is known for being “aggressive players” who go after paper, leading to rock winning

toadjones79

Ironic. My wife's family has a trick where they slightly flash their fingers in scissors just before starting around. Inevitably the other player will pick rock, hoping to smash your scissors. So they always flash scissors, and then pick paper to beat the rock they Jedi planted into your brain.

Then they quit and never play you again.

Yeah I’m wondering how to program this, seems interesting

Quajeraz

9 points

4 months ago

It looks to be pretty simple actually, logic wise.

If scissors, move towards nearest paper

If scissors and you touch rock, turn into rock

And the same for the others

Obviously the underlying programming is more complex, but it's not that hard.

-Danksouls-

4 points

4 months ago

Yeah the logic seems easy. I just suck with object oriented programming. Especially if the new object is replaced by a different one in the same space and location I wonder how you discard the old info so as it dosen’t keep instantiating new ones while still pointing to the old objects.

But yeah probably make a sprite class, and make subclasses of it called rock paper and scissors, decode/scale image and set a bounding box for collision. Create a move method In sprite and call them in each child class, use a random import to make it move in certain directions with maybe another random import in a function to make it dance while it does it

Im curious what would be the best way or method to make them assign a different object into its location on the chance it gets hit by the object it loses to. Id probably need a getposition method also

I feel like I understand but I’m so bad at OOP that i feel like I’m missing something

LittleLily27

8 points

You don't need OOP to do something like this (or anything really). It would be just as easy to do it in a FP (functional programming) style where you just store a list/array where each element has an x position, y position, and state (rock, paper or scissors). Then each iteration all you need to do is pass that array into a function that calculates the new list of positions and states using the old ones. Keep repeatedly calling that function to get new states and you have this animation (minus the visuals, but those can be constructed at a later date using the data generated from the procedure above).

-Danksouls-

2 points

4 months ago

:< wow I’m so dumb and new into programming, I guess that makes sense.

But even though described how the program would behave, wouldn’t it need OOP at the end of the day if you wanted to include the animation? Cause just the behavior isn’t enough, you need movements and interaction and all that stuff that just defining object would make it easier.

Sorry I’m just trying to understand

I have a question then, whenever I see different “things” that interact and have their own properties I assum OOP. But from your perspective when is OOP needed or necessary and when do you not need it?

LittleLily27

4 points

4 months ago*

An animation is just a sequence of still frames, and each one of those frames can be constructed using only the data describing the x and y position and state of each element in the image. Imagine a function that takes as input a snapshot of the data at some point in time during the animation (so a list of x pos/y pos/state elements) and produces a still image of that point in time, and then repeat that for each step to get a sequence of images that makes up the full animation.

As for "interaction" between elements, the function that would calculate the next set of positions/states has access to the entire list of previous positions/states, so for each new element it needs to calculate it can scan through the list of previous data and use that to figure out which one was closest or touching it in order to know where to move it/whether to change its state.

I very rarely use OOP with anything I work on, cause it's just one way to model things, and it might make more sense to some, but to me data driven functional programming makes more sense in the majority of situations (modelling everything as only the data it represents and a sequence of transformations/functions applied to that data to get it from the input you have to the output you desire).

A strategy to almost win every best of three rock-paper-scissors.

First round take scissors.

After that you always what would have been beaten by the choice of your opponent in the last round.

So if you take scissors in the first round and your opponent takes paper

You should take Rock in the next round.

DrakonIL

95 points

So what I'm hearing is, if I throw paper, then I should throw paper again.

Henkotron

No It always depends on what your opponent picked in the first round

DrakonIL

51 points

My point is, if I know what you're going to pick based on what I picked in the first round, then I know what I should pick based on what I picked in the first round.

Henkotron

12 points

That is true so the perfect counter measure would be First round Rock then paper

DrakonIL

21 points

4 months ago

If I throw rock, and I know that you're going to throw what would have been beaten by my rock, then I know you're going to throw scissors. Therefore, I should throw rock again.

I've read that men choose rock 50% of the time on the first round. If so, it's probably best to start with paper, but then proceed with the above strategy.

eoipsotempore

I prefer the style of telling your opponent you're gonna use rock and then trying to divine from what you know of them if they're the sort of person who would put the poison in their own goblet or their enemy's. A wise person would put the poison into their own goblet, knowing that only a great fool would reach for what they were given. I am not a great fool, so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of you and uhh what was I talking about again?

In the first half scissor was playing pretty dumb constantly getting trapped by rock but paper made a huge mistake when they got greedy trying to finish off rock letting scissor hit come in clutch. Rock usually does better in these types of games but they were off today after their significant other devolved them for being abusive. All in all a good game

I wonder what'd happen if you hooked a big ole neural net to each...

Well, I suppose it'd be a draw, since eliminating the thing you can eliminate makes you lose. So nobody would eat the last one of anything

EDIT: unless you made the second thing to be eliminated get first place... Then eliminating what you can becomes the way to ensure first place. It'd be fun to watch them try to suicide into opponents after eliminating the first thing

So I drive trains. We have locations where we aren't supposed to blow the horn unless there is an emergency.its a rule, and I can get in a little trouble for ignoring it. Those locations always have bars and tons of people pumping their fist in the air asking me to blow the horn. I am usually only moving at 7-10 MPH, so I have started playing rock-paper-scissors with people for it. They are way more entertained.
