2012 Apocalypse TI-83+/TI-84+ Programming Contest
« on: November 13, 2012, 12:02:07 am »
After through discussion with some members and KermMartian (because of the overlap issue with Cemetech contest 9), I decided to host a little contest!
2012 Apocalypse Programming Contest

Date: 11/14-12/21

The apocalypse is coming... Nobody exactly knows the reason of such atrocious event... Some say that it's the sudden spread of the nikki simulator...Some say that it's the returning of the giant blue lobster with a pink name...but we can be sure of one thing... The contest is happening! ;D

Theme: any apocalypse themed game/utility. (Zombie Apocalypse, financial crash, missing sandwich, you name them!)

Language: Axe/Grammer/TI-BASIC (with libs to a certain extent)/asm

Devices: TI-83+/84+

Deadline: December 21, 2012 11:59 PM EST

Well since this is a minicontest hosted by me (and lack of funds.), there will be no computer section :(

The result will be in December 25th (I hope) and the winner will receive $20!


Participants will be required to make a thread about it and post the link in this thread.


Axioms are allowed, but the project that was started before November 1st is not allowed.

Grading will be weighted based on the programming language and other possible advantages.

Jointing with Cemetech contest 9: It is possible to enter a same entry in Cemetech contest 9 as long as the entry meets the criteria. But remember. This contest ends a month earlier then Cemetech contest 9!

Submitting Entries: Just submit the zip file with proper documentaion (You know, readme!) to [email protected]!

TheMachine02 - Cataclysm - RECEIVED
Matrefeytontias - EndGam3

You should specify for which calc it is for in case some people misinterpret it. :P

Also how will you post results after Dec 21st 2012?? O.O
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

I'm looking forward to see the results of this. Too bad I don't have a 84+ to join :(

Some people need a high five in the face... with a chair.

This sounds great although I probably won't be able to participate either.  I don't own an 84+ or 83+ yet.

Good luck for everyone that enters.
They say that your signature is supposed to go here...

Are you sure about that? Is there any way you could have a computer section?

Well, since yeong is the one sponsoring the reward and judging, I don't think that's a very viable possibility ;)

Also, what place does a computer category have in an 83/4+ programming contest? :P

Well the reason that I decided not to include computer section is that cemetech contest 9 is starting soon. :) and the lack of funding. I'm pretty sure that ceme contest will have a computer section, so I decided not to bother with it.

From Kerm's latest post on the Cemetech contest ideas thread

Quote
Categories: (1) z80 calculators (ASM, Axe, and BASIC judged and weighted together), (2) Casio calculators (fx9860g and Prizm, although we'd probably only get Prizm entries), and (3) computers.

It does look like there will be a comp section.

I was hoping there would be a computer section for this contest as I was going to compete in both :P

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...

Yeong, you might survive, but everyone else will be dead...Even if the winner magically survives they won't have much use for money, would they D:

Joking aside, I may or may not enter...depends on if I get any ideas haha
