Material gifts makes a person immensely happier than direct money. Psychology states that too. Like winning the psp pad [Come mr. postman, cant wait to try it :)].  :D

Prizes are nice but for large items like consoles, postage is expensive and there could be region protection or voltage problems.

Sektor is right  ~sm-37.gif~

Hi guys, i think about joining this competition after all the cool summer 2007 entrys.
I was wondering when we are allowed to start coding and if the game has to meet some criteria.
I m looking forward to this :)

You can start now or anytime.  The rules haven't been announced yet but I assume they will accept anything and more points if it supports motion.

Ok I just made up some sheet which holds up the whole plan for my PSP Game and how the network protocol works etc. However, if it comes to controls i m not sure:

I could add some basic control first using the analog stick, but seeing that there would be additional points for motion i would like to add this too, luckily i own  2 PSP allready (one slim and an old one) so i shouldnt have a problem adding that feature. But for doing this, i would like to see some video which shows what the api returns in some cases - if you shake the psp for example, if you rotate it etc.
I would really like to see such a video as i can't afford the motion sensor atm.
Also: is there any sound support for the motion? If not ill probably have a look at the sound drivers and think about hooking them in order to make them work. (Should be testable with the headphone-remote plugged in - right?)

I'm thinking about entering my first real game for the DS.

Do you guys think something like this (http://palib.info/forum/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=3531&forum=9) would be worth entering?
Title: Re: Just want to inform all coders
Post by: spinal on October 24, 2007, 08:11:23 AM
As a good rule of thumb, absolutely anything is worth entering, weather it is your first program, of your forty second. As long as it is your own work.
 Good luck in the next competition.

Thanks for the info.  I wasn't sure if my first game would be at the same level as others in this competition.  Hopefully, it will be well polished by March 20th.

Are we allowed to have a loading screen before the splash screen.  ::sm-07.gif::
Title: Re: Just want to inform all coders
Post by: spinal on December 28, 2007, 03:37:47 AM
I think its ok, as long as the splash screen is shown before the game is played.

Hi,

Thanks!

Please, somebody answer my question in the previous post.
It's urgent! :'(
Title: Re: Just want to inform all coders
Post by: Sektor on January 12, 2008, 11:30:13 PM
They allowed a Megaman game, so Mario should be no problem.
Title: Re: Just want to inform all coders
Post by: spinal on January 12, 2008, 11:34:10 PM
Think you are allowed to enter ANYTHING you coded, it can be a mario game if you like, as Sektor said, there has been a megaman game before.
Title: Re: Just want to inform all coders
Post by: Extreme Coder on January 12, 2008, 11:58:46 PM
Yes, the code is mine of course :)

So as long as I coded it myself, it can enter?
Graphics does not matter?
Title: Re: Just want to inform all coders
Post by: spinal on January 13, 2008, 12:05:06 AM
I think it will be ok.

err...what are the rules??
blame me for being stupid or blind...
i can't seems to find the rules page...?

do i post the .nds, .nds.sc.gba... ...(either or all)with screencap
or do i post screencap with code?

DUN kill me.. ::sm-02:: ::sm-15.gif::
Title: Re: Just want to inform all coders
Post by: Sektor on January 31, 2008, 12:53:06 PM
The rules haven't been posted yet but if it's like previous years, your can just post some description, .nds and screenshot.  You only need to post code if the license for the code says that you do (unless the rules change this year).  It won't hurt to include ds.gba and sc.nds but most DS homebrew devices can run .nds files, so it's not important.

I plan on entering my first compo, but what is, and how do I use, a splash screen.

Edit: Am I allowed to have more than one entry?
Title: Re: Just want to inform all coders
Post by: sg57 on February 11, 2008, 04:29:22 PM
So, no ports?

What about clones?  cause something I've been working on is in a completely different (probably unheard of by most, Turing?) language with not %100 of it's source released, so...  it's a sketchy clone/tiny port...

If need be ill PM you dr.neo if needed...

I do hope i can enter it, all the more reason to hurry the release ::sm-21.gif::

So, no ports?

Ports have been allowed previously.  As long as it hasn't already been ported to DS by someone else and you follow the license for the port (GPL or whatever) then it should be fine.  Get confirmation from Dr. Neo though since rules can change from previous years.

we don't have to release the source, do we? its too embarrassing to release it xD

You do not have to release the source.

ah alright.  I don't htink there is a license with it, just a few author comments in teh source.  I'll double check though  ::sm-17.gif::

Title: Re: Just want to inform all coders
Post by: spinal on February 15, 2008, 02:12:11 PM
Just use a temporary image for now, the splash screen is usually not chosen till a weak or so before the deadline.
