Maybe a little more time plus a little more publicity is needed.  Somehow not everyone knows about Neoflash even though you guys have made great flash carts for AGES.

I think most people will wait and enter their project at the last day (like me).

I am still working hard on my entry, but not much time left! So, I'll have to cut some features and enter what I finished by August 20.

Even if somebody didn't start coding anything yet, there's still a few days remaining! You can make something cool!
It's not important about the prize, but sharing new software and enjoy each others creation

I hope there are some entries for older console again this year, like mega-drive, pc-engine etc. (theloon- will you submit a new 2600 game? or maybe a BEX project?)

Good luck to those still working hard to make deadline! I hope you can catch all remaining bugs easily this week (hehe)

this might sound like a stupid question, but it might make a big difference in my case : is the deadline august 19th at 11:59 PM or august 20th at 11:59 PM ? obviously I'm hoping it's the latter.  8)

If I do a 2600 game it'll probably amount to a couple days worth of coding.  I can't promise quality or completion :)

Nowadays 2600 games can have title screens easily (even in BASIC):
http://www.atariage.com/forums/topic/169819-the-titlescreen-kernel/

I know a title screen is easy. What I was saying was a big pain is trying to make a decent 2600 display out of the official screen badge for the contest. Someone would need to make a much simplified version.

In total I see 7 posts between apps and games..  does everyone submit their game right at the deadline?  I was expecting more for some reason.

Everyone submits right near the deadline, and a few right after if the board has troubles. Dr.neo makes judgment calls on those after the deadline. Like a bunch of others, I've been rushing to get something ready, and for some weird reason, it ALWAYS take close to the deadline to submit, regardless of when you start.

Title screen is easy dawg. :)

I intentionally made it 48x96 because most title screen kernels will double the width of the pixels.

All the contestants making 2600 games please use this!  Er, unless someone has already made a better one.. then cough it up!

It's Aug 20 11:59pm in your timezone. So it always feels like everyone gets an extra day more than me because I'm in Australia and we're 12 hours ahead of the rest of the world :)

I prefer the rule, as long as it's the still the 20th somewhere in the world then it's not too late ::sm-21.gif::

I will enter the compo too, and will wait the deadline to post my entry..
I had to code many things and my friend, who is working on the gfx and maps, lost his hdd... ::sm-02::
Holidays with no real "internet connection" are hard (my phone 3g network is ****py here), not much free time too.
So I think the entry will only look like a demo.. :(

Nice job converting the badge to 2600! Now we should see tons of 2600 entries as that was they only thing holding people back.
