This discussion thread is to submit your solution for Week 4 of the May 2023 Developer Challenge - Open-Source ABAP .
Week 4 – Axeage https://github.com/Ennowulff/axage
We thought we would end this month’s dev challenge by having some fun. Community member @ennowulff has created an open-source game engine in ABAP. Think classic text-based games like Zork. Now you can create and play these kinds of games in your own ABAP system. 🎮
For this week’s challenge, install the axage project in your system. This project contains a classic SAPGUI dialog program. If you are using an on premise system that supports SAPGUI you can run the program, zaxage_demo_01, to play a sample game. If you are testing on ABAP Cloud (or any system without SAPGUI access), you can run the class, zcl_axage_demo1, from the ABAP Console to play the sample game. If using the ABAP Console version, there is no input option; so you will have to add your input actions in if_oo_adt_classrun~main where you see the comment “Add Your Commands Here”.
Your goal in this sample, simple game is to explore the rooms, find the Request for Change and deliver it to your developers.
❗You will get credit for this weeks’ challenge by providing a screenshot of the successful completion of this game.
Bonus #1: You can install a second open-source project that uses the abap2UI5 framework from Week 2 of the challenge to create an SAPUI5 interactive UI for playing Axage and the sample game. You might find this easier than playing the game via the ABAP Console. This second project is available here: jung-thomas/axage_example: ABAP Game Engine Example using ABAP2UI5 (github.com)
Bonus #2 – using what you have learned throughout the Dev Challenge, create your own original game in the Axage engine and share it with the community by pushing it back to a Git Repository.
My W4 submission and little extra effort for extending the original game. Gitrepo
..and of course, here is a completion of the original game.
