The GameShow SPINNER- One app... so many games!
TUTORIAL - Everything you need to know to get you going.
Spinner comes with 2 folders, a Logo folder and a Wheel folder. We have some generic graphics in there. To customize the wheel just drop new graphics into the folder then relaunch the app.
This is how the control screen looks...
Click the "Browse" button and select the folder (not the file) you want to use. Then the "select a LOGO" pull down list will now show all the graphics in the folder you selected.
BUZZERS & BUTTONS
You can use wireless or wired buttons to spin the wheel. If you use a wired option like the MakeyMakey you can "press and hold" to spin the wheel, Then release to stop the spin. For wireless buttons, you will click to start the spin. Then click a 2nd time to stop the spin. Click here for more info about buzzers...
CUSTOM GRAPHICS & TEMPLATES
Here is a free Photoshop .psd file. This layered file will help you get started making your own wheels. Wheel_Template.psd - Wheel_template_v4 - Wheels_Halloween
If you don't have photoshop you can open and edit it on this website... https://www.photopea.com
If you don't have any fancy software, draw a picture and take a photo with your phone and drop that picture into the folder. It really is that easy. For optimal performance, the wheel graphics should be 1170x1170 and the logo graphics should be 375x375.
