Where might I find this required splash screen?

For the ones new to this competition, you must know that the splash screen is always decided at the last minute ;P

For the spring compo it says "[4] If your project have release in another compo already, you still can join our compo too." ... Does that rule apply to the summer compo too?

Heh, its no problem really, just make space for it in your code, and use a "dummy" splash meanwhile.. recompile with the final screen and voila  ::sm-10.gif::

Let me clarify a bit..  I have a psp game I recently entered in a small compo on another site that I'd like to add more stuff to and enter into this compo.  I see it was allowed in the spring compo, but is it allowed in this compo as well? 
If I am able to enter it, I'd imagine I'd need to hold off on publicly releasing any updates until after the neoflash compo ;)

Well, I'll be entering my game for the Nintendo DS that i'm working on for this contest ^^ ( Been working on it for the past three days straight ^^).

I was just wondering though, are we allowed to release our games before the contest is up to get advice from people for improvements and what not and continue to develope it for the contest?  Also, will it be okay if something is submited a week before the deadline? (i'll actually be gone arround the deadline time i think....most likly with no internet connection :( ).  I haven't entered any of the past compos, so i'm not sure how the submision process works or anythign here :S

Are remakes allowed? I'm new to the DS and not very good at coding in general, so I would like to do a game where I know roughly how its supposed to turn out. Or does it have to ba an origional game?

Can we send multiple games and get multiple prizes?
If I were to send in 2 NDS games and somehow both games manage to win a prize, could I get 2 prizes from the NDS part of the compo?

I'm new (1st post) and I'm going to enter.
I've coded a GBA game similar to Tetris called GASP! I'm gonna go for a different genre this time and make use of the touchscreen.

Good luck everyone with your coding.

Yeah, I want to know how original too. I'm currently working on a port that has some improvements over the original, so I'd like to know if I could join the contest. The original is not a DS game, though.

something that has just occured me: Mk4-SD is a prize, but is it going to be launched before August 30th, the time when the prizes will be shipped? I don't think so, it's been sometime since I've last heard of it. What other prize would take it's place?
Title: Re: NEO summer coding contest 2006 for NDS(GBA) and PSP first announcement
Post by: drakonite on August 21, 2006, 04:37:44 PM
The Revolution would not be released either...  I am pretty sure they'll just be delaying the shipping until release for those items that are obviously not available... It would make sense ;)

Post by: The_Legend on August 23, 2006, 01:33:14 PM
when will we know the results? is the open vote part of the point system? I don't think it's fair enough, I mean, the best one can be chosen by the public, but the other 9 get disadvantage, because you only choose one. maybe a game, in most people's head, is'nt like number 1, but is number four, so this game will never get any vote, but would REALLY be like the 4th place.

not to say the friendship, hehe. just ask a friend of yours and s/he will vote for you!

Votes don't completely decide the winners, they are just one part of the process.
There are judges who do most of the ranking.
Title: Re: NEO summer coding contest 2006 for NDS(GBA) and PSP first announcement
Post by: The_Legend on August 23, 2006, 10:14:29 PM
of course I knew that, and I still think it's kind of unfair, but...
Title: Re: NEO summer coding contest 2006 for NDS(GBA) and PSP first announcement
Post by: chatterbug89 on August 24, 2006, 02:56:14 AM
I read somewhere the votes only count for 20% of the score...so, I dont' really think its a huge deal.  Genneraly, the most favored game will get the lead in the polls, so they will get the extra points to get an advantage of becomming number one,w hile everyone else wont...so...everyone else will be equal.

Though, the poll can be sort of rigged....I will admit..it's not the fairest thing in the world.
Title: Re: NEO summer coding contest 2006 for NDS(GBA) and PSP first announcement
Post by: The_Legend on August 24, 2006, 04:59:32 AM
20% isn't "only" in my opinion...

what I meant is, this vote will only be "fair" for the ones that will be on the top list, anyway. for example, someone could think that a game should not be the 1st, but would be on the top 10. actually a lot of people could think that. in the end, the votes for the people near the bottom on the top 10 list (the ones who will get points from public vote) will only be from friends and alike. and the ones who have got more friends will be the one to get the extra points (may be only 20%, but in the end it's the difference between a winner and a looser).

well, but that's just my point of view, I agree that the public vote would be considered on the final result, but on the way it is, it's just not fair IMO...
