The Omnimaga Obfuscated Code Contest (OOCC)
« on: August 08, 2014, 10:33:22 pm »
I know you guys love to write code nobody understands, especially in Axe, so why not a contest about that? You guys probably know the IOCCC, the International Obfuscated C Code Contest, this is my take on it.

The rules:
  • The code can be written in any language (preferably should run on a calculator or on my Linux computer), esoteric languages that obfuscate code by their nature (such as Brainfuck or Malbolge) are discouraged (although I'd like if you would write something in Malbolge xD). There is two categories, Calc Languages (TI-BASIC, Axe Parser, Grammer, z80 asm, Casio Basic, HP-PPL, etc. C (and probably Lua, this is debatable) will be considered in Other Languages) and Other Languages. The categories are at best informal and are made to facilitate judging for those who wants to enter and judge at the same time.
  • The code should show abuse of the language you chose, that is, stuff you thought couldn't be done or shouldn't be done, unreadable or misleading code, or just extraordinarly messy code. It should preferably be a single file of less than 4096 bytes, althought it's not a hard rule.
  • The entries must be sent by PM to me before September 9th, 23:59:59 EST. The PM should include the source code (either in a [code] block or as a zip/tarball attachment), the name of the programming language (along with any special info on making it run, if applicable), a description of what the code does, how it works, its expected input and output and why and how its code abuses the language (that is, a README), sample input files if applicable and if it's an improvment over a previous entry, if applicable. You can enter as much times as you want.
  • All the usual rules about plagiarism applies (the code must be written by you, not be started before the beginning of the contest, no sharing before the contest ends, etc.)
  • On September 10th, the entries will be judged by a panel of judges and the results will be published later with various prizes. You can apply to be judge on one or both categories by PM to me or on in this thread. To be fair, you shouldn't apply to judge your own entry.
  • The rules can be slightly changed during the contest. This is not an official contest and the prizes have no value. Donations are welcome, though.
  • Have fun!

I'll compete in computer langs and judge for calcs.

* pimathbrainiac begins writing really messy code.

Then you shall be judge. I'll pick the judges definitively at the end of the contest so you have time to decide whether you enter or you just judge. Also you should probably be rather good at programming and understand what's going on to judge.

Lol, so basically, we do whatever we want as long as it is unreadable ? I think the Axe category is doomed, every program from Runer does what he wants and is unreadable :P
I'll probably enter, depending on my progress on my other project :)
I own: 83+ ; 84+SE ; 76.fr ; CX CAS ; Prizm ; 84+CSE
Sorry if I answer with something that seems unrelated, English is not my primary language and I might not have understood well. Sorry if I make English mistakes too.

Awe, too bad that before the contest doesn't count :P
All my old code is a huge mess :P
e.g. I already tidied this up some, https://github.com/Sorunome/Homepage/blob/master/bbCodeParser.php#L73 fail to understand it and just wrote the todo to re-write it XD

Would my old RPGs apply? :trollface:

Also i doubt Super Sonic Ball 83+ would be that hard to read, plus the physics uses some code Builderboy wrote for me :P

Another coding contest...wow, it's becoming a trend. :P

I'll start writing in Batch, and I have a bunch of tricks up my sleeve. ;) Just, is there any rules on what the code can do? Like, is this a Hello World, a Truth Machine, or whatever we want it to be?

Did you know that "Ammonia Gas" rearranged is "As Omnimaga"?

Not really, the only requirement is that you should produce code so messy even Runer112 would be like wtf at your code.

Also you should probably read the IOCCC's rules and guidelines, along with the previous winners of that contest, it's pretty much what I want for this contest, but it's not restricted just to C.

Spoiler For IMPORTANT NEWS!:
Late last night, Quebec was invaded by a group calling themselves, "Omnimaga". Not much is known about these mysterious people except that they all carried calculators of some kind and they all seemed to converge on one house in particular. Experts estimate that the combined power of their fabled calculators is greater than all the worlds super computers put together. The group seems to be holding out in the home of a certain DJ_O, who the Omnimagians claim to be their founder. Such power has put the world at a standstill with everyone waiting to see what the Omnimagians will do...

Wait... This just in, the Omnimagians have sent the UN a list of demands that must be met or else the world will be "submitted to the wrath of Netham45's Lobster Army". Such demands include >9001 crates of peanuts, sacrificial blue lobsters, and a wide assortment of cherry flavored items. With such computing power stored in the hands of such people, we can only hope these demands are met.

In the wake of these events, we can only ask, Why? Why do these people make these demands, what caused them to gather, and what are their future plans...

So we write code that over time, even we don't know what it does?

This happened to me with Metroid II Evolution. After a year of hiatus I revived it, but had to rewrite most of the events because I couldn't figure out what my old code did anymore *.*
