Hello,
I have a question, is the Playstation 1 allowed ?
It will be in a cd image file (.cue/.bin), and would require a boot cd or a modchip to start on a real ps1.
Thank you.

First off, I'm very excited for this years competition :D I'm glad Dr.Neo decided to bring it back for another year!

I'm wondering if there will be any changes in how the entries are judged? The thing I'd like to see the most is how each entry is rated so that we could know what to improve and such.

  • Just a coding machine.
If you have a public poll, you'll get a lot more info on how to rate all the entries. While that is good, if you don't set some standards, you'll have to convert most of them into a set standard for determining the winners. What is needed is a set standard - what areas to grade the entries in, and what values to assign each area. That way they all conform and you just have to sum the totals to get the winner.

Example: Not a good example, but just showing what I mean...

Judging Games:
Playability (fun): 0 to 30 points
Originality: 0 to 30 points
Graphics: 0 to 10 points
Sounds: 0 to 10 points
Control: 0 to 10 points
Open source: 5 points
First time entry: 5 points

That gives a total of 100 points, where certain areas are worth more than others - namely how fun the game is and how original the game is. Apps would have a slightly different set of guidelines, like useful instead of fun as one of the areas for judging. By setting a standard and giving the range of points that can be assigned, it means that judging should be more uniform and clear as to how each judge thinks the entry did.

Anywho, that's my suggestion on this matter.  ::sm-09.gif::

Could be good. I just would hope it doesn't turn into a popularity contest. I wouldn't think that would happen, but it's possible.

Thanks for listening to the voice of the community anyhow though. Makes this compo that much more appealing.

wow I wasn't expecting the compo to go on for another year, this is awesome. I really admire your dedication to the homebrew scene Dr.Neo, this is seriously fantastic. I'll most definitely be entering a game, and hopefully it'll be a good one !  ::sm-24.gif::

Looking forward to participating!  ~sm-76.gif~.gif Already coding up a 3D portion to some code I released a few months ago on my Github for the DS, so hopefully I find a way to get some nice models for it before then ^^  Happy to see some activity for the homebrew community still!  ;D :)

I haven't started yet but I'll try. Good to see the comp still going. I agree with the others about the rules and the need for official judging templates.

Quick question: I have an application I finished a few months ago.  Would I be allowed to enter that (along with some other new apps) into this?
