Bulls & Cows is a logical game for kids and adults, also known as Mastermind, 4digits or 1A2B. Your goal is to find the opponent’s secret number with a minimum number of suggestions.

On each guess the game announces the number of “cows” and “bulls” in your suggestion. If the matching digits are on their right positions, they are “bulls”, if they are on different positions, they are “cows”.

You can play Bulls and cows in two game modes: Single player or Against Android.

In Single player mode you try to guess a secret number. To win you must reveal your opponent number.

When playing Against Android you start by choosing your difficulty (easy, medium or hard) and entering your secret number. On the next turn your opponent generates
his secret number and announces the number of matching “bulls” and “cows”. Winner in this competitive game mode is the first person to reveal their opponent secret number.

You can make the game more challenging by choosing ‘hard’ difficulty and using five-digit or six-digit secret numbers. If you are stuck finding the secret number use a hint. To help you compete better Bulls & Cows features a draft (as we call it) where you can mark digits that you think are included or not in your opponent secret number.

If you fill like customizing there are many aspects where you can make it your own personal experience. You can for example change the theme,
or decide to play without zeroes. Check out settings…

Example:

Secret number: 8561
Opponent’s try: 3518
Answer: 1 bull and 2 cows. (The bull is “5”, the cows are “8” and “1”.)

Gentoo Linux: Ugly fonts in NetBeans and how to fix them


Warning: WP_Syntax::substituteToken(): Argument #1 ($match) must be passed by reference, value given in /home/paskov1/addon_domains/vmsoft-bg.com/paskov/root/wp-content/plugins/wp-syntax/wp-syntax.php on line 380

I recently installed Gentoo GNU/Linux + KDE 5 on my dev machine. One thing that was bugging me was the crappy font rendering in NetBeans.

To relolve the problem, locate your netbeans.conf file. Usually under /etc in your NetBeans installation folder, and append to netbeans_default_options the follwing:

-J-Dswing.aatext=true -J-Dawt.useSystemAAFontSettings=lcd --laf Metal

This will enable font smoothing in SWING and use default system settings for font smoothing. The last entry –laf Metal sets the preferred UI theme for the IDE, it should be Swing based theme such as Metal or Numbus.

Happy coding 🙂
