Hi, I've got a simple challenge for you guys. I've been making a little web application that judges how straight the lines you draw are and I need some peeps to try it out. It's also got a little arcade style leader board which is where this competition comes in.
The challenge is pretty basic:
1) Go here --> http://xn--haik-3ra.com/lesson1/index.php
2) Try to get to the top of the leaderboard and let me know of any bugs you find in the process. Maybe use your Sycra username or comment what username your using bellow so we know who's won.
Your score is based off the average straightness for the last 10 valid lines you have drawn. Note this isn't the same score as shown in the bottom right as that's your current lines straightness. A valid line is one which has a length over 6 and more than 10 sample points, click more data in the application and those number will make more sense. To give some context, a line with 90% straightness only has about 1 pixel of variation. Anything over 80% is where you want to be if your doing construction drawings, 100% is possible to get but really hard (especially 10 times in a row). I find I get the best lines when I turn off line analysis and more data, gives a boost to the fps and makes drawing smoother.
Originally made this to see what an online art learning platform would look like if it was a bit more interactive and had a scoring system that users could use to compete against each other with. Obviously learning to draw a straight line isn't the most exciting but the concept could easily be extended to learning perspective, colour or even more complicated things. Let me know what you guys think and your thoughts on whether something like this would be at all useful on a larger scale.
Works best on desktop with chrome and no other tabs open, otherwise things can get a bit laggy. No idea what it looks like on mobile but I imagine not pretty. Also make things easy for yourself and use a drawing tablet, mouse works but 'your gonna have a bad time'.
