    Re: Contest 7 - Arcade - Discussion Thread

    I was about to comment on the .exe included in one of the entrants entries, however I'm flexible about exes and trusted regulars...

    But... About Fromethius..

    I am not going to download Fromethius's project, due to the fact that its so big it can't be hosted here.

    Why is it so big? High res images when 72 DPI suffices?? {granted, 6+mb isn't really all that big...}


    BTW,

    I feel that all the participants, just for submitting, should get a prize such as the custom user status.


    It would also encourage more entrants if all is rewarded in some meager fashoin...

    Of course, the true winner then should get a larger "trophy", perhaps 2 months?

    The file size is most likely due to the .wav file that is included. At least I think it was a wav file...can't check at the moment, but I think it was. And of course waves take about 6mb, so that would make sense. So a conversion to mp3 would probably solve that.

    Erm, looking at the contest entries threads, I can't help but notice the distinct lack of my game, which I submitted before the original deadline, which was something like the 10th of november, I think. I haven't been here in ages so I didn't realise this had happened, so I hope it's not too late. If you've lost my game or something, it's in the game demos forum.

    Cheers,
    metal

    It was defiantly there until the last minute, I was puzzled myself as to where it went. Perhaps Pino has the answers.

    Don't worry, it's still there. Just go to the bottom of the sub-form and change "From" from 1 Month to 45 days and it should show up. Just like if you change it to "Beginning", you can see all of the contest entries ever submitted.

    Ok guys after a very busy week for myself each of the 3 entrants will be offered a VbForums shirt. So well done and thank-you for your entries. As for determining a winner all 3 projects look good and I'm not sure how you guys would like to have it judged as my original ideas for judging it have gone out of the window due to the lack of entry's. Shall we post them and have a forum vote?

    A vote sounds good to me, as long as it's open to many, and not just the half a dozen or so people who have been posting in this thread. Would an announcement be too extreme to advertise for votes?

    I was planning on submitting my Simon Rules game, a takeoff of the old circa1975 Simon electronic game. But, after seeing Lord Orwell's worm game, I surrender, and besides, I'm a year late.
