GUI game help needed

Post by Agreevedlama » Wed May 28, 2014 1:42 pm

Here is my question, its a technical problem so am trying to simplify it as much as possible. So what I am trying to do might sound a bit weird.

Here is image that is needed for following explanation. http://tinyurl.com/p5g88mu

I want to use GUI to create a 2D game with grid of points. Now in that grid, I have some existing data point.( light green) and rest are missing ( not shown but one of the example missing point is shown in orange). Now I want to fill up all the missing data points by using a few light green points. Default case is the 4 light green points shown by arrows at the intersection of the arrows and the red and blue lines. Lets say I select a missing data point it should turn orange or red and all the light green data points corresponding to that should become dark green. Now I should be able to toggle between light and dark green data points and customize a set for each missing data point. I want to do this for all missing data points one by one.

Lets say that this is the game I want to build in python GUI. I wanted to ask if anyone can help me get started. I use python a lot but never did any GUI. I looked up web GUI examples they all seem quite simplistic and no where as complex. Python is what I am comfortable with but if this can be done using some other language I am willing to try.

Any help you can give is highly appreciated.

It sounds like you want to manipulate the DC directly. This si general not possible with scripting languages.
