I opted to remove the white spots pixel by pixel. This is my final result (not perfect, but pretty close):



I've applied this adjustment to the release candidate (now with revision date January 5, 2018).

That must have been like dropping a bag of rice then picking up each grain with a pair of tweezers! Very Happy 

Looks good now and will match the professional look of everything else.

Well, there's always that one part of the game I forget to test. As such, version 4.0.1 is here with the following fixes:

  • [FIX (Mac only)] The buy vowel and transfer totals buttons now work properly with large money values. The Windows version was not affected.
  • [FIX] Adds an error message if a user sets the vowel price or house minimum beyond the maximum integer value.
  • [CHANGE] If a user attempts to load a puzzle when none exist, a new message box guides the user to the Set Up Puzzles editor.

I would like to thank Marius Benadie from YouTube for helping me identify the Mac buy vowel/transfer totals bug.

Version 4.0.1 was re-released a few hours after this post to adjust the performance of the puzzle existence code.

Hey Tim, I think this game is amazing! 

Please excuse me if this is a dumb comment as I'm very new to all this - but if you want to edit the white out of the logo - is there is a reason you're not just doing it in photoshop? Something like this would probably take about 30 min max to clean up. But I am totally happy to be corrected if that's not an option! 

Please keep up the good work and inspiring us newbies!Smile

I don't have Photoshop, so I looked for other ways to remove the white out of the logo. Nothing I found was able to remove all the white with just a magic eraser tool, so I went on to remove the white spots pixel by pixel instead. As of now, i don't plan to revisit this part of the logo, but if you want to continue editing the logo until every single white spot is gone without compromise, I won't be against that.

Glad to hear that you found this project to be inspiring.

Hey Tim,

I think I missed the second page of the thread, so ignore me!!! 

But if you have something like this in the future that needs a little photoshop help, let me know - that's one I can probably help with!

Keep making amazing games and sharing them!!! Smile Smile Smile

Wheel of Fortune for PowerPoint Version 4.1

on Thu Jun 28, 2018 5:52 pm
Version 4.1 is here, and it comes with refinements and a feature originally planned for the 4.0 release.

What's Changed

  • Puzzle Swapping
    Created a puzzle in slot 1 but want to move it to slot 3 instead? Now you can with the new puzzle swap feature. In the Show All Puzzles slide, use the new arrow buttons to sort your puzzles to your liking.


  • Macro Checking
    Many users have told me that Wheel of Fortune for PowerPoint doesn't work. Almost every time, it's because they unknowingly had macros disabled.

    To save each of us the trouble, Wheel of Fortune for PowerPoint now checks if macros are enabled. If a user clicks on any of the title slide buttons with macros disabled, a alert box will appear with a link to the macro troubleshooting post.


  • Refinements
    - Multiple alignment fixes
    - Grammar fixes for round explanations
    - The trashcan in Set Up Puzzles now animates when clicked
    - Fixes a bug that prevented editing the vowel price or house minimum on the first try


Moving Forward

As I mentioned before, I want to transition this project from PowerPoint to the Web. This means at some point, you will be able to create and play Wheel of Fortune games straight from your Web browser.

As such, Wheel of Fortune for PowerPoint is now in maintenance mode. I will work on bug fixes and refinements if need be, but don't expect any more features until the Web version arrives (which will take a while).

I greatly look forward to the Web release, and I hope you do too. For now, I hope you enjoy this new PowerPoint release.
