"Bejewelled Blitz (Facebook) player
Clojure program to play Bejewelled Blitz on Facebook
Work in progress
Only works with game on primary monitor
First you need to determine where the game board is on the screen
then set the :x and :y values in the game-loc def appropriately
You can find the values by doing the following (albeit quite slow)
1. Start the game, make sure to leave the game board visible on the primary screen
2. Wait for the text on the game board to clear, so you just have a view of the gems
4. (find-game) ; this is very slow (2 hours on a core i7) it will return the coordinates of the game
5. change (def game-loc {...}) to have the x and y coordinate from step 4
Personally I find the values by hand using
(def test-image (grab-image)) ; with a board visible on the primary screen
(image-to-frame (.getSubimage test-image x y 320 320)) ; vary x,y until you get close
and (total-discrepancy (.getSubimage test-image x y 320 320)) ; use to find perfect spot
you're trying to find the x and y that minimizes the latter
Once you have game-loc set (.start timer) and (.stop timer) turn the game player on and off
Better gem identification (still some multipliers and stars with wrong colour id)
Detect stars, bombs etc and use the info in making moves (multipliers done)
Prediction - figure out what the board will be like after a move and use that instead of move heuristics
Faster way of finding the game on the screen
Exploder moves include multipliers in it's calculation
Thanks to everyone on #clojure, especially rhudson, raek, Raynes, cemerick, mfex and chouser"}
