My partner and I thought this project was pretty challenging too. I think it took us a while to get the envelopes working properly so that's definitely something that we struggled with. Also in the advanced features, it was hard for us to get the dragon to scale up and down depending on which envelope it caught. For me personally, I think it was just hard to visualize how everything fit together. For example, it was hard having to think about what needed to be fixed in the envelope class so that the actual code in the dragon game worked or vice versa. Having to work on a big project like this kind of made me more nervous about finishing up my Nifty Project, but I know that with more practice it'll get easier!

Total agree with Natalia, I have an idea about making a data analysis project for Nifty Project. However, after doing Project 3, I am concerned that I could not implement that idea because of its complication. I intend to change the project to some games as I know how games work.

My partner and I had difficulties with most of the project. We got through it as a team. The most challenging part for us was moving the envelopes in the sit windows without parts of the envelopes moving outside the window.

For me and my partner, this project is so challenging. What I found the most challenging is combining all the knowledge in the class to actually make a python game, which requires you a deep understanding of what you learned. I mean it is good for you to know how you can apply your knowledge but through remote learning, it is very challenging in the fact that you thought you gain a deep understanding of this subject but in fact, you do not. Moreover, it seems to me our professor expects a lot from us when he does not give much instruction about what we could do. Although he had commented on the file, I am still lost when I read the comments and ask myself "What can I do next?". I think that with online learning, you can not expect the students to know and reinforce the things they learned like that as students have a different level of understanding.

I 100% agreee with you! its so much more difficult when you are a remote learning!

I agree with Natalia. We definitely had some challenges working through Project 3. I think another challenge we struggled with was doing too much coding without properly testing it to make sure it worked before moving on because it became very difficult to find where the errors were coming from.

Most of the project was super challenging for me. I found it very difficult working with multiple files and understanding every part of each file. It also took me quite a long time to do the animations since it was very complicated and required a thorough understanding of what we have learned so far.

The part we found most challenging was trying to mess with the dragon learning the new graphics2. We could not get the dragon to increase in size once it hit an envelope or for it to rotate for what key was clicked

We had a hard time making the dragon stay in its increased or decreased size after getting the right or wrong envelopes. It would scale up or down and go back to its original image. We were able to fix this later on but it took a lot of time.

Me and my partner barely slept in process of completing the project. So, basically most of the part of the project was challemging.
