Talk:Creating a Real-World, GPS-enabled WP8 Tag Game

Hamishwillee - I don't really understand the game!

So with NFC we have to touch the taggers device with the tagee to start, then the tagee runs (right?). How does it end, how long before chasing starts, how is ending detected?

I found the structure odd, but the "recap" section addresses most of the issues I had.

The main "outstanding issue" is its not clear why or how you use Azure mobile services (other than to store checkins). What is the benefit? It might be worth providing a brief overview of what it is your code does with these services (brief description)

Last point, wiki style would be improved by using bold for filenames and Icode for code.

Cool combination of services. Thank you.

Regards

Hamish

Matthewthepc -

Hello,

"So with NFC we have to touch the taggers device with the tagee to start, then the tagee runs (right?). How does it end, how long before chasing starts, how is ending detected?" The idea is to enable a "hide and seek" like game across large distances, for example, a large city like San Francisco. The tagger taps the tagees device, and then after giving them some time (decided upon by the group in question) they start the game. I'll update the article with an elaboration on this.

"I found the structure odd, but the "recap" section addresses most of the issues I had." Yeah, I realized about halfway through that I was basically just copying and pasting the code and writing a few sentences in explanation, so I decided putting in a recap section would be a good idea.

"The main "outstanding issue" is its not clear why or how you use Azure mobile services (other than to store checkins). What is the benefit? It might be worth providing a brief overview of what it is your code does with these services (brief description)

Last point, wiki style would be improved by using bold for filenames and Icode for code" OK, I'll add those suggestions to the article soon.

Thanks for the feedback,

Matthew
