MegaStopwatch 12/29/10



Thumbnail 1 for MegaStopwatch
My App is a classic Megaman themed Stopwatch. Currently about 98% of the functionality is fully working.

- Standard Stopwatch: start/stop counter and reset counter
- Race Watch: saves up to 20 participants times if you're timing a marathon or other race.
- Lap Watch: saves up to 20 lap times for an individual
- Egg Timer: let's you set a timer from 1 second to 99 hours
- Metronome: from 1-399 Beats per Minute, not sure why'd you'd ever need something that fast.
- Saving/Loading: 5 Save Slots to store the state of any of the above stopwatch functions.
- Button Configuring: Let's you assign any button on the DS to be your Start/Stop and Reset Buttons, on top of the Touch Screen controls.

The 2% that isn't working yet is the basic Clock, which shouldn't be difficult at all to finish.

Which leaves me with just under a week to work on the graphics which currently are mostly missing everywhere. I don't actually expect to win anything, I just really needed a stopwatch last week and was too cheap to go and buy one, so I figured I'd make one, and while I'm at it, I might as well give it a theme. If anyone has any suggestions for what else you could possibly want from a Stopwatch, that'd be great.


Change log (12/29/10):
Updated final version. Not a lot of differences, just a couple extra animations, and recalibrated the timekeeping, I found that the timer was lagging by around 21 Second per 2 Hours and adjusted it to be more precise, not that I expect anyone to really use this for something that requires that amount of accuracy.

Right now, it's been calibrated to be off under 1 Second per 2 hours.

button Configurations weren't saving properly on yesterday's version, so reuploaded Dec. 29, tested on 2 seperate DS Lite's, off by less then 1 Second after 20 Hours, Can't guarantee how accurate the timer is on DSi's or DSi XL's since I don't own either.
