Updated version of the popular ''patience'' solitaire app, originally by Keith Packard.
This version supports color, high-res, and has improved graphics.
It supports the same great gameplay and the same 15 games from the original patience game.
Add support for mapping hardware buttons to game actions. Buttons include the standard up/down and date book, address, todo, and memo buttons, as well as the 5-way controller buttons, if present. Game actions include Undo, Hint, Examine, Deal, Another Hand, New Game, and Restart Game.
Create preference for game variant options (Golf 4-row vs 5-row, Klondike 1-card deal vs 3-card).
Add a preference to ask for confirmation before starting a new game. Helpful if you accidently draw a ‘m’ (which would quit your current hand and start a new one).
Add a preference for suit colored rank labels (i.e., red for hearts and diamonds, black for spades and clubs).
Improve distinctness of clubs vs. spades on low resolution screens
Updated the description of Towers to more accurately describe the game.
Change “Another Game” menu item to “Another Hand” to avoid confusion
A few minor improvements for non-volatile RAM PalmOS 5 devices.
Implement a new random number generator, which should make the games a little more, well, random. The existing algorithm had a flaw that made roughly 1 in 16 games contain a non-random sequence. This changes the “game numbers,” but the “Select Game Number” form allows specifying game numbers compatible with Patience 5.0.
No new games (no room on the game selection screen! :-)
