I dont know where else to go, so i thought i would ask if any of you might have ideas for me. I was going to design a series of UserForm VBA games to load in to my application. Purpose:
my fiance has a friend at work who's husband is going overseas. I designed a program for my fiance through excel which is a wedding countdown - displays a different image/caption/mp3 song every day with a countdown timer in days/weeks/hours/seconds until our wedding day.
My fiance thought it would be a good service for her friend if i could adapt my program for her co-worker's children, as her husband will be gone for 7 months. Her proposition for me was to re-design our wedding countdown program and insert the same - images/songs/trivia daily that updates, as well as including some fun games for the children to play each day while they wait for their father to return home.
Needless to say, i dont have the time to create many UserForm driven games that would be entertaining to the children every day for 217 days... I could create a few, like tictactoe, hangman, and whatever else, but i'm sure with 4-5 games over 217 days it would get quite boring.
I figured that somewhere out there people share code and offer such userforms they created with others... mainly trivia/games is what i have been looking for. Unfortunately for me VBA in the game department is tied in to gameboy games through google for some reason, making my search impossible!
If somebody could provide me with ideas as to where to locate userforms created to be shared with others in the area of children's entertainment/games, it would be grately appreciated, and a service to this family making sacrifices to serve!
Thanks in advance for any feedback you can provide!!
i was also just thinking if there was some way i could import flash files into a user form... that way i could locate flash games i could load into a user form that pops up. I think locating flash games would be much easier - and much more entertaining!
Is this doable without needing to load a custom control into excel? (needs to be combatible with other machines on the fly!)
Thanks so much!
Nevermind, i figured it out! Just installed shockwave flash, pointed to TOOLS > Additional controls > to locate and check the
"shockwave flash object" and add it in to my form.
and i linked in a flash file like this:
just a random swf game link i found. works like a charm!!!
now i need to seek out and find flash movies/games to load daily! =)
I excel & vba!
