Re: Overview of current mahjong video-games

The main reason Ignatius and I didn't give the Android version of the UNBALANCE game a better recommendation was that it could only be played in vertical mode. I see they corrected that in the PS4 version. Ignatius has also provided an English translation. http://reachmahjong.com/en/forum/viewtopic....

Re: No matter what you cut, it works perfectly

I didn't get much sleep last night thinking about this. It didn't help. Lets see if I understand this correctly. I have a closed tenpai hand, probably for a yakuman. I draw a tile. It's not the winner. A piece of junk. I can now discard any tile in my hand, even keeping that piece of junk, and I wil...

Both of the good ones can do that, but in different ways.

Re: Riichi Scoring Website / Android Camera App

I have not noticed any difference when choosing those options. I did notice the RENAME button which allows you to rename those options. Why you would want to do that I do not know. As for the million koku, I assume that is when the total of the crack tiles in a flush must be 100 or more. Quite hard ...

Re: Riichi Scoring Website / Android Camera App

Your detailed explanation is greatly appreciated as it makes me really appreciate the work of the other developer, whose calculator app I have not been able to find a single flaw.

Re: Riichi Scoring Website / Android Camera App

Haha, I found the page where you posted your constructive comments and the developer thanks you for your keen eye in pointing out the multitude of faults in the calculator. Also noticed his feedback to your feedback to his feedback (Did I get that right?) I wasn't too impressed with some of what he ...

A closed kong of green dragons is 32 fu, not 16.

I wouldn't use this calculator until it is perfected.

Re: Riichi Scoring Website / Android Camera App

I tried the camera option on the Android app. Took a picture of this hand. phpv7GnZaPM.jpg This is what came up. Not quite the same. phpR0aLgpPM.jpg phpKvH3DmPM.jpg I would stick to the original other android calculator, extremely similar, without the camera option, and works perfectly. (see next po...

Re: Robbing a kong and payment

If you're interested, here is a very good Japanese Mahjong scoring app available on Android.
I use it all the time.

The best one on IOS is the last one discussed in the thread, Japanese Mahjong calculator girl.

Re: Custom Rule of the Day: Toriuchi

I remember you bringing this one up 5 years ago back in the days of haku pocchi when I was experimenting with a game that involved shuugi, those chips.
Nostalgia from the good old days.

Re: Yakuman Club Revisited

Initially, I was going for Honitsu and Toi-Toi, but when 48,000 appeared, I realized what I had. All green. Ryūiisō. My first one ever, and it only took 6 years.
I'm glad this one didn't get away.

Re: How to change seat winds?

Yes, former south becomes east, former east becomes north, former north becomes west, and so on, but I see this as a counterclockwise rotation. phpiePgzPAM.jpg Normally, the seats do not rotate when the dealer (east) wins the hand or is tenpai (one away from a complete hand), but this depends on the...
