Red Apps

Some AV software is flagging exe's created by the Red toolchain as suspected threats.
These are false positives and are NOT viruses. These bad virus scanners are a problem.
AVG, Avira seem to be the worst of them, but are not alone. Until we can do something 
about this nuisance, the best thing to do is to add  a working folder to their 'settings, 
exceptions' section - then everything in that folder will not get false positives.

You can be confident that all my apps are completely virus free.

An even newer Drag/Drop Gui maker            added 12/04/2018
A newer drag/drop GUI maker 'version 2.1'.
More done on the drag-n-drop Gui layout maker. still a lot can be done with this one. As before not sure if it is, or will be of any use to anyone.
The 'backdrop' changes background colour, the 'Title' changes the title, 'Save it' saves the script, the 'Try it' runs the script, the 'Clear it' clears the layout area.
Added a code view window which is updated when the widget is dragged or edited from the popup.
Drag a face onto the layout area and click to register it, a properties edit window will pop up. Only a few properties can be edited so far.  Will do more on this when i get chance.  will add more editable 'properties' and more 'widgets'
The important thing with this one is that when the button is dragged onto the layout area, a single click on the face is needed to register it, the edit properties window will then also popup. 
Just an observation, everything works as I expect with 'red-05jan18' build,  So use it.
but the latest builds are a bit flickery and need several clicks on some widgets ? - need to look at this.
Try it.  I promised the script for this one. Will post it when I've done a little more to it. 
I will be adding more to this one soon, so keep looking.
Any issues with it, please let me know.
Works fine with Win 10.  PC, Laptop and Tablet.
Regards....
Alan.

Gui Drag-n-Drop        added 13/03/2018
An experiment and extension to a Gregg Irwin example,  again with this one, just for fun.
It allows you to drag and drop widgets to a layout grid, Then the 'Save it' button will save the
generated script,  the 'Try it' button will allow you to run the script and the 'Clear it' button will clear the
layout page.  There's a lot more that could be added to this one,
I added the script to my 'Example Red Scripts' page.
Regards ....
Alan.

My New Red Roulette Game       added 11/02/2018
A while back, I did a Red Roulette game.
Here is a much improved version of my 'Red Roulette Game'
Back then it was Red ver. 0.6.0. and I had to improvise with sound.
I used the Rebol interpreter to play the sound effects. 

Now we are on ver. 0.6.3 - it's much better. Still some improvisation needed,
but here I have a much more robust version of that same roulette game. 
Sound effects and Animations are embedded within the single execute file.
So you just need the 'RedRoulette.exe' file and nothing more to run it.
A single exe, Simply unzip to your desktop and go.  Try it ....
Windows Only for now, but will be adding some Mac pages soon ....

My Red Faux Compiler           added 16/01/2018
It's a sort of Red compiler, It will create a folder containing an executable and your script.
It allows you to select your Red script then choose a 'Windows' or 'Dos' compile.
Within a second you will have a folder with your red script and an exe to run it. 
Smoke and Mirrors ....
So, if you have a script called 'hello.red' it will create a folder called 'hello' containing 
an executable called 'hello.exe' and your 'hello.red' script. 
The folder is totally portable and needs no other resource. 
IMPORTANT - Just make sure everything is in the same folder.

My File and Folder Hider                added 18/10/2017 

Hide files and folders with 'Hider.exe'.
A folder called 'FolderVault' needs to be in the hider folder along with Hider.exe.
Just put the files and folders you want hidden into the 'FolderVault' folder and click on Hider.exe.

Tested on Win 10 - PC, Laptop and Tablet.

My New Sound Player                added 04/10/2017 

This is an improved version of my mp3 player. This one plays mp3 and wav files.
No need for any sound engine here, it just needs the player and some sound files.
Make sure you have some mp3  and/or  wav files in the folder.
A graphic is embedded in the exe.

Tested on Win 8.1 and Win 10, seems ok ?

My Red Glamour Model quiz          added 15/08/2017

A quiz based on UK glamour and page three models, past and present.

My Red Talking Alarm Clock          added 01/08/2017


VoiceAlarm is a Speaking alarm clock.
It Speaks the time when the set time is reached.
but with a little extra for the voice.

It uses SAPI (Speech Application Programming Interface) object.

I've also included the Red script in the  VoiceAlarm.zip. 
I tend to avoid releasing scrips when I think they could confuse more than help, 
but I think/hope you find this is pretty straight forward.
I tested it with Win 7, Win 8, Win 8.1, Win 10.  All seems to work fine.

RedEd                                                                                      added 12/02/2017
A simple Red editor with 'Interpret' and 'Compile' options .... No set-up and No messing about, Just unzip it and your ready to go .... Simple, No Nonsense .... Write, interpret and compile ..... 

Written using a 'Red Jan2017' automated build.  For Windows.
Interpret,  Dev and -r Release mode compiles are easy from within the editor.
Size of editor exe is 755 Kb   and   Just over 200 lines of Red script.

I tested it with Windows 7, 8 and 10 - Desktop, Laptop and Tablet .... 

It's a work in progress, so more will be added to it when i get time.


----------------------------------------------------------------

AutoRed                          new improved version added  08/02/2017
Written using Red's latest automated build. (this was written just for a bit of fun, but could be useful)
This gives you some 'Interpret and Compile' options without having to use the cmd prompt. It makes it easy to use any text editor (even 'notepad') to write scripts with easy Interpret/Compile buttons. 

Using it is simple - just make sure everything is in the same folder, i.e. the Red exe, your Red script etc. and of course the AutoRed.exe. Then just have it waiting in the corner of your screen. Once the red.exe and your script.red have been entered, you just need to remember to save your code, then just choose your 'Interpret/Compile option' .... See the readmeFirst.txt in the zip file.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Red Watch

This one was compiled using the latest Automated build .... 
I embedded the graphic in the exe .... Download
See the readmefirst.txt in the folder ....


To see my complete script for this , go here and scroll down the page:  Example scripts

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Red Quiz Game
The .exe is pure 'RED ver: 0.6.0' and only needs the 'questions.txt' file to work .... 
All other files are for the sound .... and uses the Rebol interpereter ....
At the time of development there was no sound in 'RED' so I had to improvise .... So if you want the thrill of full sound, you'll need the Rebol files ....  But the 'exe' will run without any of the rebol files, you just wont have sound .... Download
Just make sure you have the 'questions.dat' file in the program folder or you'll get nothing .... See the 'READMEFIRST.txt' file for more info ....


See my: Example Scripts  for an idea of how it's done.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Red Invaders Game
This one was also written with 'RED ver: 0.6.0' .... A Classic 'shoot-em-up' with lots of movement, colour and sound .... Again sound is handled by calling the Rebol interpreter ....
Note: I have found that Tablet use (screen tap)  gameplay is much easier, so choose a more difficult level from the intro screen ....  Download


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Red Roulette Game
Another one written using 'RED ver: 0.6.0' .... This is a 'russian roulette game' with sound and graphics .... Once again the Rebol interpreter is in the folder to handle sound effects ....  Download


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Red Clock
This one was in anticipation of 'Red ver: 0.6.1' .... I used a recent 'automated build' to compile it .... See my Red Programming page 
for the script .... or get the exe here: Download


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Notes:
Regarding apps that have sound
If you have problems with sound not playing, you may need to run the 'Rebol' console just once to get things going.

I tested these with Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and 10 with no problems .... Also on Desktop, Laptop and Tablet .... for slower cpu's killing the sound either from within the game or by removing 'rebol-view-278-3-1.exe' from the folder will make a difference ....
