Yet another minor update, but you may like it:
- The Triads and 7th chord test will now only display valid answer buttons.
I’m sorry things aren’t moving very fast up front here, but I’m studying hard to figure out how to do things elegantly behind the scenes. And my students have their exams coming up…
The synth seems to hang somehow. I’ll try to have a new version out by tomorrow. With improved looks on the piano.
Fixed! And the piano looks better now.
I found the language files of the old site, so now I’m able to reconstruct the levels that older users will recognize. But sorry, I need some more time to figure out how to do the one second time limit.
So far I’ve completed levels 1 through 8 of the intervals, triads and 7th chords, and there’s more to come in the near future.
The test navigation looks better now, but I’m struggling with the looks of the piano. I may have to rethink that.
The hiscores statistics has been improved. You can now see your hiscores by test and level, in addition to your overall total score.
We’re back from Easter vacation, and the looks haven’t changed much. There’s been some background improvements, but I’m afraid there still are some bugs in there.
- The Mode tests will play back at different tempos, and that’s a plus.
- I’ve changed the looks with some icons, but I’m not sure it’s a plus.
- I’ve torn down a kitchen out in the woods and partly rebuilt it, but that’s completely off topic.
Watch this space!
Earplane has been updated, but it’s mostly behind the scenes. The only visible difference is that your login will now survive a page reload and a browser restart. So if you’re on a public computer you may want to remember to log out when you end your session.
Apart from that I’ve refactored the source into something more expansion friendly, and I feel ready to proceed. I haven’t yet decided what the next update will be, I probably should try to dig up some files from the old site so that I can copy the test levels from there. Or I can concentrate on the looks. We’ll see.
Please comment if you’ve got a suggestion.
An early version of Earplane has been deployed during the last couple of days. Some of the functionality is in there, but I still have a long way to go on looks, sound, pretty much everything. It’s out because I need it for my students. Please have a look! What is the thing I should work on next?
