So I'm all up for creating apps that make full use of the MK2/3's power, but it's too bad no one knows how to do that. Maybe you can finally release some source or more information on how to access it?

ohhhh! I so really want an XBOX360!
Can I enter too? I'll probably make it to the top-10 anyway. If anyone doesn't like me to win... join this competition!
Including a trojan would disqualify the entry, right? ;D

This is so ****ed, how would someone be able to get full power out of the MK when the software isn't even finished? (and it doesn't even work for the most ppl with different flash cards). It's a shame I can't enter :')

Post by: cybereality on January 05, 2006, 02:03:15 AM
  Wow, an Xbox360... I'm definately gonna try to whip something up for this. One question though. Are there 10 winners total or 10 in each category. More specifically, will the #1 winner for games AND the #1 winner for appz BOTH recieve an xbox360, or is it just ONE #1 winner overall?

Hi,

Did I miss something  ??? ? But I was not able to find legal rules that apply to the submitted entries. Is there some document somewhere ?

Is it possible to release the sources of the submitted entries ?

Is is possible to release the binaries of the submitted entries ?

How and where to send submissions ?

I'm a bit lost  :o ... Or I completly missed something  ;)

Thanks :)

biker trash, that looks good, only the letters are horrible! If you could post that pic withouth the letters and allow me to fix that I think that would be a very good splash then :)

Post by: cybereality on January 20, 2006, 08:24:09 AM
   I still havent seen the exact legal rules pertaining to the compo. I have read this entire thread and there is no mention of several key points.

1. Does submission to the contest in any way waive the developers rights to the submission? In other words, who retains rights of the IP?

2. Is it necessary to submit code or only a binary file?

3. Must the submission be an unreleased game/app or can it be an updated version of existing software (not entered in previous compos of course)?

3a. If the software has already been released is it acceptable to distribute the file on other sites or must it be exclusively hosted on neoflash.com? If so, for how long?

I am seriously concidering entering this contest (I've already began development) but I would like to clear these issues up, for myself and others, sooner rather than later.

Post by: Badname on January 20, 2006, 08:19:05 PM
Well with photoshop make the letters better looking, now they look like its too cheap mspaintisch.
Check these some letter styles i came up with for inspiration maybe, just play around with the textlayer propertys to make something nice and not too crouded for the eye.

1. Does submission to the contest in any way waive the developers rights to the submission? In other words, who retains rights of the IP? --- no devloper keep right of his devlopment but you authorize neoflash to distribute it (cd, dvd, website ect...)

2. Is it necessary to submit code or only a binary file? --- only binnary file,but should come with*.gba and *.nds 2 formats, source code is appreciated.

3. Must the submission be an unreleased game/app or can it be an updated version of existing software (not entered in previous compos of course)? --- existing game must be a really strong update to enter. we won't dismiss any entry but the originality of an entry will be a strong criterion for judge.

3a. If the software has already been released is it acceptable to distribute the file on other sites or must it be exclusively hosted on neoflash.com? If so, for how long? --- as long as you keep the neoflash splash screen on your homebrew, and it's fine to distribute it on other website.

Attached is the PSP version of my existing splash screen.
You guys are free to use it as long as I am credited somewhere that isn't too hidden.  :)

With frame:

Personally I like it with the frame but i've made 2 versions so you guys can make your own minds up!

If it is too bright on the PSP screen please let me know, i'll adjust the colours so they don't glare as much.
