I'm glad you are all so enthusiastic about Cemetech Contest #10! We are equally excited about the many people who posted topics today with entries. Currently under-represented: ASM programs, TI-BASIC programs, and particle forces (eg, planetary simulation or electric and magnetic fields acting on particles). As others already clarified, remember that the goal is to write an educational physics program, not necessarily a game (although some game elements will be allowed). If you make it a non-game, you won't lose points. If you're definitely going to enter, or even if you're just toying with a possible idea, be sure to post up a topic in this subforum to register your (possible) entry.

I'm entering. With a particle force program. In basic. Because I already know stuff about this.
I'm not a nerd but I pretend:

I'll enter with a particle force program in C. I won't be able to start on it for a few weeks, but I'm excited about it so I think it should be at least partially finished on time.
I currently don't do much, but I am a developer for a game you should totally try out called AssaultCube Reloaded download here https://assaultcuber.codeplex.com/

By the way, are participants allowed to cross-post some of their updates on other forums as well? Of course I would recommend that they regularly keep their respective Cemetech topics updated regularly, like I feel that should be done with any contest (It kinda irked me when our entire TI-Nspire userbase vanished off the face of the earth during the entire duration of the 2011 Omnimaga contest, leaving the future of the contest in doubt until the final hour, as zero entry were uploaded at that point), but it might be worth precising if some updates can be cross-posted anywhere to ensure that no rules get broken.

I suggest that next contest, the prize be changed a bit. Maybe the grand prize could be 1 calc + cash? Or just cash? Or maybe modding/hacking materials, like an RS232 interface thing >:D The thing is, I have a feeling that a decent amount of the contestants already have enough calculators.

I know that a lot of people here got a TI-84+ or a TI-Nspire CX, but not a TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition, and there are possibly people who only have one calc who might want to try to get the other.

Also I got 24 calcs and Kerm over 40 O.O

And for those who wouldn't get the first prize, TI-Planet is also organizing another big contest starting very soon :)
It's not even a competition with Cemetech's one, it's actually more chances to win things :P

And Omni as well AFAIK; but IIRC it starts much later and there are fewer prizes (due to lack of funds).

Hopefully we can work together between the sites to not be running concurrent contests at the same time, so the maximum amount of people can join all of them.

From what I have heard (although maybe it is not accurate since I forgot part of it), initially the Omni contest plans were to avoid competing against Cemetech or TI-Planet, so for example, no physic-themed contest this year and starting at a date that would make the deadline far enough from the two other contests. The latest rumor that I had heard, though, was that the contest was slated to start 2 weeks after Cemetech contest, but at the time, it was believed that Cemetech contest would last 4 weeks, not 8, so I am not sure if that is still the plan. Omni staff would probably have to be asked directly.

All I know, however, is that Omni contest will only last a few weeks, because Omni members have a bad habit of starting their entries at the very last minute, making a longer deadline useless. :P Also, Omni has always been short on cash (since most admins are younger), so prizes might either be smaller or in smaller numbers. Hopefully people have fun with the 3 contests, though. :D
