Okay I got my launch phrase set up but I don't know how to make the phone do what I want. I just asked it to check last call and it did a google search for "check last call" smh.

rockshard PhD " "Set alarm for 6 a.m. tomorrow: Boy, you sure do wake up early." Does the alarm dismiss itself? After how long? What alarm tone will be used?"

I don't need to download this since Google voice search app works brilliantly. And it's fast! There is one caveat however. Shazam keeps a llist of each song you look up so you can refer to it later. With Google you're simply told the song name. It kind of raises the question of why you need to bother looking up the song at all if you're just going to forget the name in ten minutes and in twenty minutes you''ll forget you ever heard the song. Who cares about the damn song in the first place? Does anything matter?

Husky Wing You can also ask Google to make a note. "Okay Google, remind me..." seriously, just try it with pretty much anything.

rockshard PhD But that means having yet another note. Also, why wouldn't I just type the note? The only reason I was gonna try the voice stuff is because my phone doesn't have glance screen and voice is a possible alternative. But if I'm holding the phone already then what'sthe point. I hate the idea of using voice anyway.

rockshard PhD Oh my god there *is* a glance screen. It's called Daydream. It only displays the time, but you can download apps that show different things. I just got Clock Plus. I might try doing voice anyway. The daydream will show me I have a missed call them I can use voice to find out who called. I love technology.

Okay, here's the plan. I mount this onto the wall and, well, yeah.

Pros: I can just plop my phone on it without having to insert the cable first like with other wall mounts. Also, no cable dangling to the floor when not charging.

Cons: The phone prob won't even fit if the wall is in the way--OH WAIT I can just insert the phone sideways problem solved, best idea ever, damn I'm a genius.

DEAL WITH IT

rockshard PhD I was considering making it an element where the weak enemies wear down your hp/mp which makes you weaker for the enemies ahead, even if a boss is coming up. But this may be frustrating for the player so I was considering replenishing hp/mp right before each new battle. But that's not good either because.. wait, why is that not good? It's a neat idea. You only get replenished however if you've never won the battle before. This really adds to the survival gauntlet aspect of my game! Player is no longer punished for getting farther in the game! (by facing the toughest enemies when the party would be the most worn out) This way when the player reaches the next dungeon they've achieved a sort of safe zone. Also I just realized this effectively makes each new battle a boss. It's easy to explain in the narrative too. The player starts near a healing spring, so I can just say they take some of the water with them.

Silent Gamer I like it

rockshard PhD I have to decide how to handle ko'ed party members. In my WW1 game it would check after every battle if anyone is KO'ed, and if so, it's treated as though you lost a battle. (you get sent back to your base) I was gonna use the same formula here but I'm not sure. I could do something where after every battle ko'ed characters get 1 hp. Or a mix of the two formulas. Or just do it like any other RPG. Any of these ideas might work fine, until I figure out which makes the most sense.
