I think I am doing Pokemon.
The biggest problem is sprites :/
Lol. I had the idea to do the Pokemon TCG as well. I've made the first 21 card sprites already, actually.

"You're going down" happybobjr says competitively.

anyways, I think I will do a style similar to Yugioh: Reshef of destruction.

If i am capable of doing all the sprites, I am going to have normal and multiplayer.
My biggest concern is the amount of memory sprites are going to take.

I am only going to use the original 151 Pokemon.
I am not sure weather I should use 16 by 16 sprites monochrome, 16 by 16 sprites in 4 lvl gray, or 32 by 32 sprites.
I dunno if I'm entering for sure yet, but I have definitely started spriting and creating some mock-ups. If I do decide to enter, I'll create a topic over on UTI and post some mock-ups and stuff, as per the rules.


Spoiler For Projects:

My projects haven't been worked on in a while, so they're all on hiatus for the time being. I do hope to eventually return to them in some form or another...

Spoiler For Pokemon TI:
Axe port of Pokemon Red/Blue to the 83+/84+ family. On hold.

Spoiler For Nostalgia:
My big personal project, an original RPG about dimensional travel and a few heroes tasked with saving the world.
Coding-wise, on hold, but I am re-working the story.

Spoiler For Finale's Super Insane Tunnel Pack of Doom:
I will be combining Blur and Collision Course into a single gamepack. On hold.

Spoiler For Nostalgia Origins: Sky's Story:
Prequel to Nostalgia. On hold, especially while the story is re-worked.

Just make sure to not make a game that is too huge, though, since you have like 3 months.

Wow i forgot about energies and trainer cards :/
I think I will leave out trainer cards.
I think I will have to have an app var to old most of my data... I didn't realize how big pokemon would be.
*Happybbojr puts his secret project on hold to play with some pokemon cards.


Edit:  All seems good.  The idea for the layout is still kind of fuzzy.

Maybe I could enter Cartemon 1.2. ;D

j/k they don't accept already made games and that game was so incredibly crappy and broken anyway X.x (Some sort of fake TCG I made almost 10 years ago)

Hmm, for a Pokémon TCG, the layout I designed for words and what not was to have a database of words like:
Code: [Select]
:Flip a coin
:If heads,
:The defending
:Pokémon
:is
:Confused
:Paralyzed
:Asleep
:Burned
:If tails,
:This attack does nothing.
:Does 10 damage to
:your
:Bench
:opponents
Et cetera. Then you just use a string of numbers to access the lines and display the stuff.
...
...
It worked for me >_>

If you are asking me, I cannot join the competition :( I made a simple demo on my 89t, though, a while ago (it is lost to many RAM clears :D)

Ouch sorry to hear Xeda D:. Btw why can't you join? Is it just due to lack of time? I personally can't since I'm no longer student and live outside of USA.

Oh, right, moderators can't join. X.x

On Omni staff can join contest, but not judges, and as a result of staff being allowed to join, nobody except the judges even know about the theme until the very last second.
