how do the judge prove the program was made in 2 hours? o.oblink.gif I know you could for example make the contest at 10 AM GMT-5, but imagine if the contest manager got called for work 30 mins earlier, or had to suddently go right at the time he posted the notice, or had to go 2 hours later? It should be considered. Maybe one day/12 hours would be ok?

It's not a bad idea tho, but I think it should be done a weekend, so almost everyone is free.

I like the one day idea...have the contest run saturday at like 6:00 AM EST and end at like 10:00 PM EST or something like that.

xlibman, remember the program I sent you when I decided to become a staff member, that was made for a two hour speed contest.  I beleive AlienCC set up a clock so it timed how much time was left and stopped accepting entries after the timer ran out so he didn't necicarilly have to be there.  There have been three of these so far hosted on UTI, and except for the third (which had one entry) they were all fun, exciting and successful.

how about I just make a shitload of optional elements and who ever makes the best routine wins...instead of the 1 or 2 useless chunks of code with no usability.  Quality rather than brievity I would say...

Besides, plenty of people have lives and Id hope as many people get a chance to try as possible.  The schedule stands and the contest is platform engine.  Oh, and I wrote friday instead of saturday twice (I need a new calander) but yeah...who ever takes over can make it how they want.  I will get the contest up asap.

A speed coding contest is rather easy to set up. Set a time to begin. At that time, announce what the type of game/routine will be. After 2 hours, any program submitted is judged.

what do you mean exactly by platform engine??is that like metroid or something?
There are 10 types of people in this world-- those that can read binary, and those that can't.

I will be updating the information in an hour or so by editing the post on the front page.  The engine's point is to be able to make games like metroid or any number of other games and alow as much variation to the code with as little possible actual need for routine modification by the user of said routine.

ps, send your files through either email ([email protected]) or pm me a upload address.  Oh, and if no one submits anyone I will begin a 4chan image spamfest. (jk)

as long as it fits all the criteria of the second post, you can use any old peice of code as part of the routine...

I guess I am not suprised no one bothered...it is the same thing that has happened every time before...it is also why I resigning.  Further, as so far only pixle art has had any kinds of submissions, I would suggest switching back as no one seems to want/ be willing to make anything more complex.
