Default Clock - 09-28-2011, 01:45 PM

I've been assigned to create a working clock also, but without directions... And for some reason, I can't download the ones already on the forum to look for reference. It says Alice cannot open a ZIP file, but its not even a ZIP file so there's nothing to extract...

Default clock - 11-14-2011, 08:05 AM

I am in a similar dilemma. I believe this technique involves nested loop and while functions. I am still playing with my clock. I did find a clock file but it is in a2c format, which is the Alice Beta; Alice 2.2 cannot open an A2c file.

Did you get the cuckoo clock assignment in Chapter 8, Exercises 8-2 #7?
I think a review of Chapter 7 is in order to deal with the loop function. If you recall, on pages 216-217, the ferris wheel exercise deals with this. I am at least going to give it a whirl and see if I can get my clock to work.

I'll let you know if I succeed.

Good Luck!

This is not referring to the world you are trying to open, it refers to how the actual Alice application is still inside the zip. You need to extract Alice first (to your desktop or something) before using it.


I have mostly moved on from Alice, but may still respond to messages if important [-]
