------------------
What is it?
------------------
Simplex is a Card Engine to allow you to easily create a Card Game with the functions the Engine Supplies.
- Create a Card Game Engine within minutes.
- Basic Functions to easily create a Card Game that deals out cards and adds them to a score. (e.g. BlackJack)
- Advanced Functions to easily create a Card Game that creates Hands for each player that could be searched through. (e.g. Poker)
- Create, Set, and Use "Trump" for games with Trump Cards.
- Takes out the hassle of figuring out how to code a deck of cards.
- Comes with Card Images, Engine, Explanations, and BlackJack example.

-------------------
Story
-------------------
Looking at the GMC boards, there aren't too many Card Games even within games such as mini games (e.g. casinos).
I coded the Simplex Card Engine to easily allow
Card Games to be created with very little time and frustration in coding a whole card engine.
Create Card Games either as a mini game or a whole game with ease.
When making a game alone it's a pain to have to create a whole card game engine for just a mini game.

Looks really nice, have you made some updates, since your last post??? (august 2009)
Maybe I'll download it to try it, but right now, i'm making some games, that do not use cards :)

Some months back, I thought on how to make a card game, but I didn't really start, because of the hassle about making one.
Maybe I could use this for a game, when my current project(s) are finished :)
