Cool. A lot can be done in 2 months.

Nitpicking here, but it doesn't say anywhere that Bennu has to be used. Perhaps you should point this out explicitly.

Please, some mod or admin, that fix the rules... in 3rd line, add "* The games must be programmed using BennuGD."

thanks...

In the rules, the last lines state:
...
     * Awards (for now only 1 prize):
           1st Prize: 1 Full Package WIZ (Wiz + accessories)
           2nd Prize: 1 Wiz.

I assume that's an error, right?. There are three prizes...

That's really cool. Might give me enough of inspiration to start programming again.

 - Registration until November 15th (not required) 
So I don't have to register? I just have to send my completed work in before the deadline? (because I have a tendency to not complete my projects unfortunately.. ;))

So yeah, I might be interested. Where do I get the logos?

Sandman, Thanks dude I will try not to disapoint =]

Windgate, Thanks~! =] I'm also looking forwared to your game man =D

I will try not to put too much complications to my game and keep it as simple and full with depth as possible =]
I will try and make my code as clean as possible because Its going to be on the WIZ and I have no idea how will it handle it =]

my personal aim for this project would be the addiction and the playability aspects of the game =]
people that know me probably know that the graphics would be top notch as usual ;)

as we speak I already drew a main character figure animation something awsome realy! ;)
and I have a main idea ready and several features and ways to program it... I have the gameplay plan ready in my mind... now all I have to do
is draw and code it and see what happends... many changes are to be expected lolz =]

Really nice to hear the time for the contest was extended! I was beginning to worry I would not be able to finish my game in time with holidays and everything coming up. Now there should be no problems at all and the game can be made even better with the extra time.

Thanks and Merry Christmas! :)

Should you need a bit of extra time* to be able to have a playable entry for the competition, please contact Splinter to see if he can do something about it.

*A bit of extra time=a few days.
Título: Re: First BennuGD WIZ/PC contest
Publicado por: Drumpi en Enero 30, 2010, 03:40:17 am
Basically, Splinter is asking for how many time do you need to finish your games for the contest.
We are talking about 2 or 3 days, i don't think he's talking about a week. Or i'm wrong? ^^U

Honestly, i need 3 days more to finish, so, what about you?
Those who had finished his games will have some more time to make them perfect ;D
Título: Re: First BennuGD WIZ/PC contest

Publicado por: drai_kin en Enero 31, 2010, 02:20:24 pm
How much time are we talking about?

For me, 1 month is ok :P

More seriously.
It is just that 2 entries were already submitted. It seems unfair for them as they managed to finish within the given deadlines.

Besides this,
1 week would be really great, 3 days would be really nice.

Oh, did the time got extended? Then I could have worked a lot more on the game. Still, it's nice to have it in and know I am done.

Perhaps we who finished in time will get a small plus when the score is counted.  ;)

Publicado por: josebita en Febrero 01, 2010, 07:13:23 pm
If you update your game, please take into the account that Bennu runs in a lot of computer platforms that are not the Wiz. I'm saying this because I'm testing the games in my Linux box and the games treat it like the Wiz in terms of resolution/scaling/mouse and it's really a pain in the eye -the resolution is too low for a normal computer- to test it.

Thanks a lot!
Título: Re: First BennuGD WIZ/PC contest
Publicado por: Imerion en Febrero 01, 2010, 08:32:07 pm
Yep, perhaps I can give the game some extra polish during this last week. At least I can do some more testing.

Josebita, I did think of that, so I made two versions of my game, one optimized for Wiz and one optimized for Linux (and Windows). Each is in it's own archive. (Though they share the same data files.) Hope that makes your testing easier.

End of february, begining of March. Give Splinter and others time to test and evaluate games. You can't play them in a week, or a month too, and them must evaluate every aspect of every game, so we must wait.

Or maybe... I don't know if Splinter give us the posibility of change games between us without show them to other people.
I'm not in a hurry, so i can wait loooong time :)

and I wanted to put it on Utube already but I need to shorten it to 10 min baaa I hope I can pass it in 10 min then :P
not sure if that even possible :O

and I would love to play other people's games now =]
