    Introduction
    This document describes the second programming assignment for COMP 2034 Software
    Development course.
    The assignment is intended to provide you with the opportunity to put into practice what
    you have learnt in the course by applying your knowledge and skills in Object-Oriented
    Programming with Python programming language. The task is to develop a program with
    multiple modules which allows users to play the game of Rock-Paper-Scissors or the game of
    Code Break against the computer and maintains information on players. Player information
    will be stored in a text file that will be read in when the program commences. Once the
    application has read the initial player data, it should allow the user to interactively query
    and manipulate the player information as well as play games against the computer.
    This assignment is an individual task that will require an individual submission. Each
    student is required to submit your work via LearnOnline system by the deadline specified
    in the Submission Requirements section of this document.
    This document is a specification of the required end product that will be generated by
    implementing the assignment. Like many specifications, it is written in English and hence
    will contain some imperfectly specified parts. Please make sure you seek clarification if you
    are not clear on any aspect of this assignment.

    Graduate Qualities
    By undertaking this assessment, you will progress in developing the qualities of a University
    of South Australia graduate. The Graduate qualities being assessed by this assignment are:
    • The ability to demonstrate and apply a body of knowledge (GQ1) gained from the
    lectures, practicals, and readings. This is demonstrated in your ability to apply
    programming theory to a practical situation.
    • The ability to effectively problem solve (GQ3) using Python and Object-Oriented
    Programming concepts to complete the programming problem. Effective problem
    solving is demonstrated by the ability to understand what is required, utilise the
    relevant information from lectures, the text book and practical work, write Python
    code, and evaluate the effectiveness of the code by testing it.
    • The use of communication skills (GQ6) by producing source code that has been
    properly formatted; and by writing adequate, concise and clear comments.
    Communicating with others through demonstrating and explaining the program
    code to the instructor.

    Specifications and Requirements
    Your solution MUST adhere to the specifications and requirements described in this
    document.
    It is recommended that you develop this assignment in stages and make back-ups of your
    code regularly not only for development purpose, but also as an evidence of original work.
    Your program must be developed using multiple Python modules, with the number and
    names of all the files strictly adhering to the specifications below.
    Your program must be developed with six Python files, three of them provided, and three of
    them newly written by yourself. These files must be:
    • assignment2.py – This file contains the main part of your program to import the
    other modules and run. It allows the user to interactively query and manipulate the
    player information and play games. (PROVIDED)
    • player.py – This file contains Player class definition to store a single player
    information.
    • leaderboard.py – This file contains LeaderBoard class definition to manage
    players on a leader board.
    • game.py – This file contains Game class definition which is the base class of other
    game classes. (PROVIDED)
    • rpsgame.py – This file contains RockPaperScissors class definition which
    implements the Rock-Paper-Scissors game. (PROVIDED)
    • codebreakgame.py – This file contains CodeBreak class definition which
    implements the Code Break game.
    Three files (assignment2.py, game.py, rpsgame.py) will be provided on the course
    website along with this document and they must be used without any modification. To
    solve this assignment, you must create and write three additional files player.py,
    leaderboard.py, and codebreakgame.py.
    Program Behaviour
    When your run the program assignment2.py, it will create an instance object of the
    LeaderBoard class you define and call the load() method which should load in player
    information from a file called players.txt (provided on the course website). If the
    program has loaded the data successfully, the following message will be displayed:
    Players info successfully loaded.
    Or if the program fails to load the players info, the following message will be displayed:
    ERROR: Cannot load players info.
    Your program will enter the command mode after the player information has been loaded
    from the file. In the command mode, the program reads user input for a command with the
    following prompt shown on the screen:
  • 6 –
    Please enter a command [list, add, remove, play, winner,
    quit]:
    The program will allow the user to enter commands and process these commands until the
    ‘quit’ command is entered.
    The following commands must be supported:
    Command Description
    list Displays the leader board (a list of all players and their
    details) by calling the display() method of the
    LeaderBoard object.
    add Prompts to input a name for a new player to add, and calls
    the addPlayer() method of the LeaderBoard object
    to add the player with the provided name. Depending on
    the return value from the addPlayer() method, the
    following messages are displayed on the screen with the
    player’s NAME :
  • returned True: “Successfully added player NAME. “
  • returned False: “Player NAME already exists. “
    remove Prompts to input the player’s name to remove then calls
    the removePlayer() method of the LeaderBoard
    object to remove the player with the given name.
    Depending on the return value, the following messages
    are displayed on the screen with the player’s NAME :
  • returned True: “Successfully removed player NAME. “
  • returned False: “No such player found.”
    play Asks to input the player’s name who will play the game,
    and checks the player’s points by calling the
    getPlayerPoints() method of the LeaderBoard
    object. If the player is not found (i.e. the return value is
    negative), an error message “No such player found.” is
    displayed to the screen, otherwise asks for the amount of
    points to bid, then asks to choose which game to play. The
    chosen game will be played by creating an instance of
    either RockPaperScissors or CodeBreak class,
    then calling its play() method which will return the
    result of the game (1: win, 0: tie, -1: lose). After playing
    the game, the returned results and the points bid will be
    passed on to calling the recordGamePlay() method of
    the LeaderBoard object to update the player
    information.
    winner Prints the details of the winning player who has the
    highest number of points by calling the getWinner()
    method of the LeaderBoard object.
  • 7 –
    quit Causes the program to quit, displaying a message “Thank
    you for playing!”. Upon quitting, the program will call the
    save() method of the LeaderBoard object which will
    save the player information to a file named output.txt
    which is in the same format as the input players.txt
    file. Upon successfully saving the information the program
    will show a message, “Players info successfully saved.” If it
    fails saving the information, the program will show a
    message, “ERROR: Cannot save players info.”
    debug This is a hidden command (not shown in the prompt) that
    will turn the debug mode on or off. If the debug mode is
    on, the debugMode property of the game object will be
    set to True which will let the answer be printed.
    After performing each command, the program returns to command mode, prompting the
    user to input next command.
    Class Specifications
    Below are detailed specifications of the three classes you must define in three files:
    player.py, leaderboard.py, and codebreakgame.py.
    • Player class
    The Player class stores the information for each player. This class must be defined in the
    player.py file, and must have the following public data attributes:
    Data Attributes
    A string, name of the player which may include white spaces.
    An integer, number of games played
    An integer, number of games won
    An integer, number of games lost
    An integer, number of games tied
    An integer, current points
    The Player class must have an initialiser method that takes the name of the player as a
    parameter, and initialises the name data attribute, as well as sets the rest of the attributes
    to 0, except the current points which must be initialised to 100.
    The Player class must also have a string conversion method that returns a string
    describing the player object including the name, the number of games played, winning rate,
    and the current points remaining. For example, for a player named “John Doe” who has
    won 4 games out of 7 games and has 75 remaining points, it must return a string in the
    following format:
    “John Doe has 75 points and a winning rate of 57.1%.”
    Note the winning rate should show 1 digit under the decimal point.
  • 8 –
    If the player did not play any games, the string must be in the following format:
    “John Doe has 100 points, and never played a game.”
    • LeaderBoard class
    The LeaderBoard class manages a list of players (i.e., instance objects of the Player
    class). The LeaderBoard class must be defined in the leaderboard.py file, and must
    have only one private (i.e. hidden) data attribute which is the list of players.
    The LeaderBoard class must define eight public methods, load(), save(),
    display(), addPlayer(), removePlayer(), getPlayerPoints(),
    getWinner(), and recordGamePlay(), as well as two private methods,
    __findPlayer() and __sortPlayers(). Below are detailed specifications of each
    method:
  • load()
    This method loads in the player information from a file named players.txt (provided on
    the course website together with this document). It reads in the file and creates a list of
    instances of the Player class you defined, and updates the list of players data attribute
    with the loaded information. In the players.txt file, each player is described in two
    lines of text. The name of the player (which may include white spaces) is stored in the first
    line. The very next line contains the number of games played, games won, games lost,
    games tied, and the current remaining points, all stored in one line and separated by the
    space character. Below is a sample content of the players.txt file with three players:
    John Doe
  • 4 0 1 70
    Lisa Smith
  • 13 2 1 105
    Andrew Whittaker
  • 0 7 0 55
    You must use the input file players.txt provided on the course website. You are not
    supposed to create it yourself or edit the provided input file. You may assume that all data
    in this file is in the correct format. Note there could be empty lines at the end of the file
    which should be ignored.
    After loading the data, the load() method must call the __sortPlayers() method to
    keep the player list in the order of their points. It should not print any message onto the
    screen, but must return True if the data has been successfully loaded, or False if there is
    any error.
  • save()
    This method saves the player information to the output.txt file which should have the
    same format as the input players.txt file. It should not print any message onto the
    screen, but must return True if the data has been successfully saved, or False if there is
    any error.
  • 9 –
  • display()
    This method shows the leader board onto the screen in the format as described below:
    • The player name field is displayed under the “Player Name” heading, and should be 30
    characters wide, left justified.
    • The number of games played is displayed under the “P” heading, and should be 2
    characters wide, right justified.
    • The number of games won is displayed under the “W” heading, and should be 2
    characters wide, right justified.
    • The number of games lost is displayed under the “L” heading, and should be 2
    characters wide, right justified.
    • The number of games tied is displayed under the “T” heading, and should be 2
    characters wide, right justified.
    • The winning rate is displayed under the “W-Rate” heading, and should be 6 characters
    wide, right justified, showing 1 digit under the decimal point with a percent sign (%) at
    the end (Hint: 100.0% has 6 characters). Note that the winning rate is not part of the
    information stored in the Player structure, but should be calculated based on number
    of games played and number of games won. If the number of games played is zero,
    the winning rate is treated as zero percent.
    • The points is displayed under the “Points” heading, and should be 6 characters wide,
    right justified.
    • Each of the field should be separated by a single empty space character.

    Below is an example of how the output should look like:
    Player Name P W L T W-Rate Points
    John Doe 5 4 0 1 80.0% 70
    Lisa Smith 16 13 2 1 81.3% 105
    Andrew Whittaker 7 0 7 0 0.0% 55

    When there is no player (i.e. all players removed), it should show a “No player to display.”

    message as below:
    Player Name P W L T W-Rate Points
    No player to display.
  • 10 –
  • addPlayer()
    This method takes the name of a new player to add as a parameter, creates an instance
    object of the Player class with the provided name, and adds that object to the player list
    data attribute. Before creating a new player, the method should call the
    __findPlayer() method to check if there is already a player with the same name, in
    which case the method should not add a new player but simply return False. After adding
    a new player, it should also call the __sortPlayers() method to sort the list of players.
    The method must return True after successfully adding a player.
  • removePlayer()
    This method takes the name of a player as a parameter, and removes the player with the
    provided name. It should use the __findPlayer() to first identify the Player object to
    remove from the player list data attribute. If there is no player with the provided name, the
    method must return False, or otherwise return True after the player was successfully
    removed.
  • getPlayerPoints()
    This method takes the name of a player as a parameter, and returns the current points of
    the player with the provided name. If there is no such player with the provided name, it
    must return -1.
  • getWinner()
    This method returns a Player object that has the highest number of points. If there is no
    players in the player list, it must return None.
  • recordGamePlay()
    This method updates the player information based on the provided game play results. It
    takes three parameters: the name of a player, number of points bid, and the result of a
    game play. The result of a game play will be 1 in case the player won the game, -1 if the
    player lost, and 0 if it was a tie. The number of games played, won, lost, tied, and the
    current point data attributes of the player must be updated accordingly. For winning, the
    points will be increased by the amount of bid, while the points will be reduced by the
    amount of bid if lost. If it was a tie game, no changes to the points are made. It must call the
    __sortPlayers() method to keep the player list in the order of their points.
  • __findPlayer()
    This method takes the name of a player as a parameter, finds the player with the provided
    name from the list of players, and returns the Player object. If there is not such a player
    with the provided name, it must return None.
  • __sortPlayers()
    This method updates the list of players by sorting it in the order of the remaining points.
  • 11 –
    • CodeBreak class
    The CodeBreak class implements the game of Code Break. It must be defined in
    codebreakgame.py module, extending (i.e. inheriting) the base class Game defined in
    the game.py module provided on the course website together with this document. The
    CodeBreak class must override the play() method of the base class.
  • play()
    This method lets the user play a game of Code Break.
    First of all, it must print the following message on the screen:
    Let’s play Code Break!
    Find the secret code in less than 5 guesses to win.
    Next, a secret code that consists of three non-identical random numbers between 0 to 9
    (inclusive) is generated. For example, 153 is a valid code but 707 is invalid as it has two 7s.
    Only if the debugMode property inherited from the superclass is set to True, it should
    print the generated code.
    DEBUG: 281
    The user is then asked to guess the secret code within 5 trials to win. User input will be
    asked with a prompt indicating the number of trials, for example, the first trial would show:
    Trial #1:
    If the user input is an invalid code (i.e. either includes non-number character: 3a7, the
    length is not three digits: 3247, or includes the same number: 299), the program must
    print the following message and ask again.
    For example (user input in italic):
    Trial #1: 12a
    Code must be 3 digits with all different numbers.
    Trial #1:
    After each trial of user guessing the code, a feedback is provided indicating if the code is
    correct or not. Also, if the user’s guess is wrong, should also print how many digits were
    correct, how many numbers in the guessed code were in the secret code but in different
    place, and the number of trials left, and continue to let the user have another trial up to 5.
    For example, if the secret code was 123 (user input in italic):
    Trial #1: 456
    Wrong code!
    Correct digit(s): 0 / Misplaced number(s): 0
    Number of trials left: 4
    Trial #2: 712
    Wrong code!
    Correct digit(s): 0 / Misplaced number(s): 2
    Number of trials left: 3
    Trial #3: 172
    Wrong code!
    Correct digit(s): 1 / Misplaced number(s): 1
  • 12 –
    Number of trials left: 2
    Trial #4: 128
    Wrong code!
    Correct digit(s): 2 / Misplaced number(s): 0
    Number of trials left: 1
    Trial #5: 123
    Correct code!
    If the user fails to guess the code after 5 trials the secret code is revealed (user input in
    italic):
    Trial #5: 129
    The secret code is: 123
    The program must show the result of the game as one of the followings.
    If the user correctly guesses the secret code in less than 5 trials (i.e. within 4 trials), the user
    wins:
    You win!
    If the user correctly guesses the code at 5th trial, the game is a tie:
    Tie!
    If the user fails to guess the code after 5 trials, the payer loses the game.
    You lose!
    Finally, the method must return 1 if the user won the game, -1 if the user lost, and 0 if tied.
    Hint: Please refer to the RockPaperScissors class defined in rpsgame.py module
    provided on the course website together with this document to learn what is expected as a
    subclass of the Game class.
    Screen Format
    Please refer to the ‘Sample Output’ section at the end of this document to ensure that your
    program is behaving correctly and that you have the correct output messages.
    General and Structural Requirements
    Your solution must adhere to the following requirements:

    Extensions and Late Submissions
    There will be no extensions for this course without one of the following exceptions:
  • A medical certificate is provided that has the timing and duration of the illness and
    an opinion on how much the student’s ability to perform has been compromised by
    the illness. Please note if this information is not provided the medical certificate
    WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED. Late assessment items will not be accepted unless a
    medical certificate is presented to the Course Coordinator. The certificate must be
    produced as soon as possible and must cover the dates during which the assessment
    was to be attempted. In the case where you have a valid medical certificate, the due
    date will be extended by the number of days stated on the certificate up to five
    working days.
  • A Learning and Teaching Unit councillor contacts the Course Coordinator on your
    behalf requesting an extension. Normally you would use this if you have events
    outside your control adversely affecting your course work.
  • Unexpected work commitments. In this case, you will need to attach a letter from
    your work supervisor with your application stating the impact on your ability to
    complete your assessment.
  • Military obligations with proof.
    Note: Equipment failure, loss of data, ‘Heavy work commitments’ or late starting of the
    course are not sufficient grounds for an extension.
    Applications for extensions must be lodged with the Course Coordinator before the due
    date of the assignment.
    Late submissions without an approved extension will incur a penalty of -30% of your
    mark. No more late submission will be accepted after the end of swot-vac week.
    Academic Misconduct
    Students are reminded that they should be aware of the academic misconduct guidelines
    available from the University of South Australia website.
