Lua contest extended and the revival of zContest
« on: September 26, 2011, 02:27:47 pm »
For those who haven't noticed on TI-Planet and Inspired-Lua, they are currently running a TI-Nspire Lua contest, affiliated with Jarrety store, and the deadline recently got extended to November 7th. There are 3 TI-Nspire CX CAS prizes to win! You only have to create a Lua program for TI-Nspire in connection with one of these three categories:

To participate you must write a TI-Nspire Lua program that matches one of the following categories: Mathematics, Physics/Chemistry or Games. Only one program can be submitted. You need OS 3.0.1 or higher (preferably 3.0.2) to participate. Also, the contest is now open to the entire world instead of just France, although if your program contains text, make sure it is useable by someone who mainly speaks French.

More information about the contest can be found at the following links:
-Official contest page on Inspired-Lua (English and French)
-TI-Planet topic (French)
-Contest rules (French)


Besides this contest, there is a new z80 one that recently started on yAronet Z80 TI board. It is called zContest 2011. From 2006 to 2008 that forum ran zContest, but then it got discontinued. We are happy to announce it was finally revived 3 years later. It is also open worldwide and there are 3 categories: Pure TI-BASIC, hybrid TI-BASIC/Axe/BBC Basic and ASM. A game must be programmed.

For the prizes, the programmer that comes first in a category then wins against the other two first place programs will win a TI-Nspire CAS CX. The two other first place winners will get a TI-84 Pocket.Fr and the second place winners of each category will win a TI-76.Fr!

This contest is affiliated with TSPromotion. More info on how to participate are located below:

It seems a lot of Omni ones did so far, seeing their forum and also here.

I was supposed to enter Illusiat 13: The Final Chapter for zContest 2009, but they never started one :'(

I think 82 games are competing against 83+ ones, though.

For the TI-Nspire-Lua contest, you can send as many submissions as you want until the deadline.

Only the last submission received will be taken into account.


So you can change your mind as many times as you want ;)


Here are the current contestants:

It might be easy to win if you choose the right category ;)

Nice. Also I hope they announce their entry on forums so more people can give them feedback, providing of course they announce them within the contest rules. I also hope they don't wait at the last minute to work on them.

Btw are the rules in the PDF also available in English?

I just have seen this topic...
And I've posted another topic here : http://ourl.ca/13269/247501;topicseen#new

DJ_O: Should I delete the other topic?
(maybe not because this topic is not dedicated...?)

There's _at least_ 2 winners by category... (and I'm looking for more prizes currently :p).

I think 82 games are competing against 83+ ones, though.
But technical challenge is a part of the grading :)

You talk about asm 82 game?
It looks interesting because 82 asm is slightly different of 83 asm which is slightly different of 83+/84+ asm.
And 82 speed is limited, technical challenge is bigger :)
