KBC game : Kaun Banega Crorepati online flash game 2013

KBC game will load below
Game requires Flash plugin 9

New KBC HTML5 game launched

This was a simple game I created using SWiSH in 2005. The questions appear randomly with no logic for the levels of difficulty and the “Phone a friend” lifeline is a dummy lifeline with no real purpose. The game was hosted on a free domain kbc2.be and also on openflash.be initially which got a decent amount of hits. Those domain names dont exist anymore, so I have published it here. You can download the source code and read the instructions below if you like to edit the game to suite your needs. This game will be moved to a new site soon.

How to play the KBC game ?

When you open the game, you will be taken to the first question directly. There is no concept of fastest finger first in the game right now. This first question if answered correctly, will fetch you 1000 Rs. Answering a question is through one of the four given choices. As the game progresses, with every question, the money that you won will double. Any any point, if you think that you do not know the game, you can use one of the 4 given lifelines. Every lifeline can only be used once throughout the game. The first lifeline is fifty fifty. This lifeline will remove 2 wrong choices and you have to pick the right answer from the remaining 2 choices. You can also use phone a friend lifeline. This lifeline will simulate a conversation with your friend. As per the logic of the game phone a friend will mostly give the right answer. You might also run out of the 30 second time limit for phone a friend. The third lifeline is audience poll lifeline. This will simulate a poll amongst the audience attending KBC and will show you the results of the poll in the form of a bar graph. The fourth lifeline is called “flip”. This will skip the current questions and show you a new question without increasing your money. The flip lifeline also can only be used once. At any point of time, if you answer the question wrongly, you may lose all your money. But throughout the game there are different levels. Like 3,20,000 Rs for example is one such level. If you answer a question wrongly after winning, 3,20,000 Rs., you will take home that money and wont lose all the money.

At any point during the game you can alo adjust the volume levels for the game.

Also the questions shown to you are NOT arranged in descending order of difficulty and are randomly sorted.
WARNING: This game is very addictive ! People have wasted days together, and I bet you cant stop at one game.
This flash game is a simulation of the actual TV show and includes the audio samples from the real game show. The questions are randomly selected from a database of 1200 entries which range from very easy to very difficult ones. If you are able to earn 5 crore Rs in this flash game then there is a high chance that you can win some good money in the real game show too.
Please note that this game is not affiliated to the actual game show broadcasted in Set India network and every Rupee you earn in this flash simulation will fetch you exactly zero rupees in the real world.

The game has been updated on 16th Nov ’11. Now if you can win 5 crores in this simulation twice in a row, without cheating, then you will definitely win 5 crores in the actual TV show.

KBC flash game source code

I have also noticed a few visitors to this blog searching for terms like “kbc game source code”. I am not sure whether anyone want to modify the existing flash game to accomodate new lifelines or game rules.
Anyway, you can download the source code for this game and a sample questions database (20 questions only) using the link below. You will need Swishmax v3 to open the .swi source file and edit program logic. If you just want to edit the questions and answers database, you can edit the core.kbc file in the zip archive.
If you modify the game using this source code and publish it elsewhere, you should retain an always visible text which reads “thekirankumar.com”

Download the game

How to add your own questions or edit the questions in KBC ?

The questions database (core.kbc is included in the KBC.zip package) contents are as follows :

&totques=183&
&ques1=What is capital of India?&
&a1=Bombay&
&b1=Delhi&
&c1=Calcutta&
&d1=Madras&
&ans1=2&
&ques2=Who is known as the father of the nation?&
&a2=Lal Bahadur Sastri&
&b2=Mahatma Gandhi&
&c2=Bal Gangadhar Tilak&
&d2=Rajiv Gandhi&
&ans2=2&

The first line &totques=183& in the file can be changed to specify the total number of questions you have in your database. If you plan to put only 20 questions, change the line to &totques=20&

The first question is in a variable called quest1, the second on quest2 and so on…
Similar naming for options . Variables a1,b1,c1,d1 will contain the text for the options for question 1. a2,b2 etc for question no 2

Answer is specified as &ans1=2& where the value 2 says the answer for question number 1 is option b (i.e, the variable b1). Similarly ans1=3 means that the answer is c.

Hence, by editing the core.kbc file using an text editor, you can modify/add new questions to the game.

You can access the source code of the flash game by opening the KBC.swi file using SwishMax. Post the URL of your version of the game as a comment in this page, I would love to see them.

Textoo : iPhone (and now Android) app to send free SMS using web gateways

History of Textoo

It all started back in 2010, when I had written a PHP script to send SMS through different Indian SMS gateways (see blog post on this). I would go around different websites trying to publicize this PHP script so that I would get more hits on my blog as well. In some of the blogs I had noticed different J2ME apps which send free SMS and were quite famous. But none of them had ported their apps to iphone and android platforms. A quick search revealed only the 160by2 official app which can do this.
Then I thought, Why not make a small iPhone app which can provide a client user interface to compose messages and then send the message using my own PHP script which I had already made by then. Since then, I started exploring the Appcelerator Titanium framework which was a vry impressive tool to create iPhone and Android apps using plain Javascript syntax. So I applied for both iOS developer access and Android market access by paying 99$ and 25$ respectively.
Once I got through the membership requirements, I started coding the UI in Titanium. And within a few weeks, the iPhone app was ready. The app would connect to my PHP script which would send the messages through the gateways and then return the result back to the app. The app was quite simple and had only 3 views. “Compose message” where you actually type the message after choosing your contacts from the phone addressbook, the “Outbox” view where you see the sent messages, and the “Settings” view where you add the gateways and account details.
After uploading the finished app to App store and getting it approved, I tried making it a paid app for 0.99$ The first few days I received around 1-5 sales a day. But people started complaining about some bugs in the app. And also there were a few problems with the PHP script. So I decided to make it free after a week of sales, so that I can get myself some time to fix the bugs. Since then it remained free and I spent minimal time of enhancing the app and the app continued to be downloaded for almost 6months with an avergae of 20-50 downloads a day.
I kept myself busy working on some freelancing projects on odesk.com and never actually thought of working on the app itself. But one of the iPhone projects which I had taken up on odesk got scrapped mid way through it. I did receive payment for the effort I had put in, but the app was not complete and the codebase was never used anywhere. Instead of scrapping the whole thing, I planned to use in the next version of the iPhone app and started working on the SMS app again.
But this time there was a big change. The app wouldnt send the SMS through my server/PHP script, but instead will connect directly to the gateway website. This way the load on my server would be minimal, and the gateway website would be happy to see all the HTTP requests coming from different IP addresses instead of my server addresses.
So since then, I spent most of my free time in working on the new version of the app and the new version was named Textoo Pro which can be downloaded here

What does it do ?

Textoo connects to major free SMS websites like way2sms, 160by2 etc and sends your SMS for free. It is a multi-account group-SMS app which can be thought of like a pidgin for SMS websites. You add your account username & password on to your app and instead of you going manually to the website and sending your messages, the app will automate it for you. The main purpose of the app is to give back the native texting experience to the end user even when they wish to use free SMS gateways.

Update: Android app also available.

About

Hey there, My Name is Kiran Kumar (so is the name of this site) and I am a 23 yr old web developer from Mangalore, India. This blog is a place for me to share my thoughts and my contributions to the open source community. Apart from that, this website is my face on the internet where I publish links to my work and a medium for you guys to reach me anytime. You have reached the about me page on my blog and I should say that this was one of the most difficult part of writing a blog, i.e, writing about thyself. So here it goes,

I am a Chemical engineer by degree, Oracle employee by the day and a freelance developer by the night

My interest in the web technologies started in late 2005 when I became a part of the web enthusiasts club at my college; NITK Surathkal. By then I had already decided that I would pursue chemical engineering as I had no clear cut idea on what specialisation to choose. But slowly my interests in web technologies started to captivate me and I started spending most of my time working on the web. In my college, I started becoming known for the websites I designed and the posters I created. In my free time I had learnt a lot of different technologies on my own. My first love was for SWiSH , an alternative to Macromedia Flash 5 at that time. I liked to create fancy text effects and make small flash movies using Swish. Slowly, I moved on to 3dsmax, to enter into the world of visual effects. But the hardware config of my desktop prevented me from getting too close to CGI. Simple 3d scenes took a lot of time to be rendered, and when the rendering time went to the magnitude of days coupled with the frequency of power cuts in India , it became an impossible feat to get anything out of it.

Then I found my new interest in PHP after one of my friends told me about it. And since then, I have been actively involved in PHP development. To me, the simplicity of the language combined with the power of the open source community always gave way to endless possibilities. Along with PHP came all its friends. Javascript, HTML, Flash, Photoshop, I loved them all !

I worked on a couple of different softwares/technologies and here is the list of things which I can recall right now :

  1. Rating: ★★★★★★★★★☆ PHP 5
  2. Rating: ★★★★★★★★☆☆ ExtJS framework
  3. Rating: ★★★★★★★★☆☆ Flash CS3 & Actionscript 3 -

  17. Rating: ★★☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆ HP Quality center OTA API

I worked on a small content management system of my own which , in the final year of my college this helped me get a job in Oracle and be a part of Content Management (ECM) team in Oracle. At Oracle, I am a part of Middleware suite globalization team where I work with people from Beijing, Tokyo and San Francisco on Oracle’s acquired as well as in-house ERP applications. The toughest part of the job is learning to understand the accents used by different people.[Update: I now work as a mobile developer at an e-commerce startup flipkart.com]

Until recently, I was only involved in web based projects, but the day I can across Appecelerator’s Titanium framework, I said ‘this is definitely my cup of tea’.For the last 6 months, I have been busy  developing native applications for iPhone & Android using the Titanium framework and I absolutely love it.[Update: I have started hating it now. Its very difficult to manage titanium projects when they become big]

I am passionate about my work and I always love to learn new things. I hate limiting myself to a single domain and always push myself hard to explore new interests which can keep me occupied all the time. People may call it ‘lack of focus’ , hyper-wandering-mind or a Jackass of all trades ! But its just the way I am designed. There hasnt been a day where I dont get a tingly feeling about learning or doing something new. But most of my work have been in varied domain, and are unorganized.

I think that much text should be good enough for you to give a glimpse into my life, if you like to get in touch with me send me a mail, or chat with me, or follow me on twitter or drop in a comment.
