Setup the board

Gather useful images for the game and edit them as needed. Edit .tpl & .css to add the board :

Setup the backbone of your game

Edit .sql to create a table for intersections. Edit .game.php->setupNewGame to insert the empty intersections (19x19) with coordinates into the database. Edit .game.php->getAllDatas to retrieve the state of the intersections from the database. Edit .tpl to create a template for intersections (jstpl_intersection). Edit .js to setup the intersections layer that will be used to get click events and to display the stones. Use some temporary css colors on borders or background+opacity to make sure they are positioned right. You can declare some constants in and pass them to your .js through .game.php->getAllDatas for easy repositioning.

Manage states and events

Define your game states in Add onclick events on intersections in .js, calling an action with appropriate parameters Add action in .action.php, retrieving parameters and calling the appropriate game action. Add game action in .game.php to update the database, then notify the client using a method ‘stonePlayed’ Implement this method in javascript to update the intersection to show the stone, and register it inside the setNotifications function. The basic game turn is implemented: you can drop some stones!

Implement rules and end of game condition(s)

Implement specific rules for the game (if any) Implement rule for computing game progression in .game.php->getGameProgression() Implement end of game detection and update the score according to who is the winner in .game.php->stCheckEndOfGame() Notify the score and implement the corresponding interface update in .js

Test everything thoroughly... you are done!
