DogP got it right. It was great to see all those projects released for the last competition, but in the end it was many projects which never got finished. And since we did only see source code for one third of the submitted projects, there was no big didactic effect. IMHO, it's for the best of all of us, when new programmers have a lot of code to learn from, can help improve existing code or even finish unfinished projects. This competition is mainly about helping the VB homebrew scene grow and get new people on board, rather than seeing who can code best. ;)

You're free to pick any license you want. So if people really want to stop others from "stealing"/copy&pasting their code, they can just do it through the included license I guess.

Hey there,

I just discovered your side and want to participate to your competition. I think that the VB is a real interesting device.
It“s a shame that its so dificult to get here in germany.
But that didnt stoped me from downloading the sdk and starting my first vb project. However i“ve got a problem... the splashscreen link in the first post is dead and so i cannot integrate it in my entry. It would be cool if you could reupload it so i can finish my project and submit it to you.

thx in advance and happy coding

usch

Hey Usch, welcome to our community! It's always great to see a new face interested in development for the VB.

About your question: I did not yet have time to upload the splash screen, but I will do it asap, promised!

OK, I created and uploaded the splash screen. I did not yet have time to test it, though, so it'd be great to hear some feedback whether it's working for you guys. :)

The code does compile but only shows a black screen.
It waits for button presses and then enters my mainloop but it dosnt showthe splash images.
tested with realityboy.

edit: ok it does work...
I forgot to call vbDisplayOn(); before your function. X_x"

Really? I copied the bgmap/charset into one of my own demos, and there were a couple of wonky things. (There was one character filling the black spaces, and one of the eyes was cutoff halfway down the screen.) I re-exported the headers and fixed a bug. This is what I got. If the original doesn't work try this:

Entries have to be open source, so make sure to include source code in your release.

Why? I really don't feel like working on something for half a year, and then having to release my code as if I didn't put any effort into it.


Are you saying no-one puts any effort into open-source projects? Ever heard of a little thing called Linux?

Or maybe take a look at SourceForge or FreshMeat some time...

You seem a little confused... licenses are specifically designed to increase the control you have over your code. Besides that (with the GPL, at least) you retain the full copyright of your code!

But the real point is: what's really so special about some Virtual Boy game code? Were you planning to sell it, or something?

But, it's your life, so whatever...

6 months? That should be more than enough to learn the VB API and give making a little VB game a shot... :P

Yup, if you have nothing else to do.
