To answer KR155E's questions:

I would you participate if I could code, but Jorgeche's engine might change that.

I would want to use the vbjaengine.

4 months seems good.

I don't think that released projects should be allowed. It would give others a head start. But that means that the games would be better. Maybe have two catagories for the competition, new projects, and previously started projects.

I think this is a great idea. Hopefully, it'll work.

As for prizes, maybe a Flashboy w/ PVB shirt for first place, and then shirts for second and third place.

you should also host a game idea contest to get some creativity out there.

actually... no. the engine can't be a compensation for lack of programming knowledge, it is not a game construction kit.
if you have some basic knowledge you could just start a project and learn c while you program, though. that's what i did. ;)

exactly my thought. :D there will be two shirt versions to choose from btw. more about those later, when the brand new one is ready.

too bad. :( even if the competition runs until august? if you don't have time to write something new you could also just dig out some old, unreleased project(s). ;)


The way it looks now, I don't think I'll have time. I just started a new job last month and it's been keeping me really busy. If they send me on another trip, I may have some time on the plane and in the hotel, but I dunno how often I'll be travelling. Plus, most of my VB time has been spent on my VB->TV adapter.

Hey, with KR155E running the contest and DogP not entering, I may actually have a chance!

Although, there are still Jorge and DanB to contend with...

Well, 3rd place is still not bad.

But, seriously, this contest is far from a lock no matter who enters. Plus, it's important to the scene (such as it is...) that everyone who possibly can enters something, no matter how good or bad they think their entry is! With an open vote, you never know how it'll turn out! Wait till you see the absolute rubbish I come up with!

Add some sound tones to Simon, that'd make a good entry.

I WOULD enter, just a question- is there any programming tools for Mac? Otherwise I can't.

no there aren't. :( maybe it is possible to compile the latest gccvb and grit for graphics on a mac, i don't know. but if you can somehow use a pc, that'd be better.
