Regarding the upcoming Summer competition
« on: April 17, 2011, 02:49:31 am »
I'm assuming we're having another Axe competition this summer. Just a few quick questions:

what will the rules on keeping your project secret be?  Obviously no code or releases, but what about screenshots, etc?

How will Axiom use work? will they just be disallowed entirely, or are they allowed?

What will the final date be?

That's cheating! Preparing your code before the competition :P

The thing is I think we should only know the rules when it is announced, if it is announced. I can't see the point of knowing the rules before the contest is announced.

Yeah it might be best to wait a bit personally. For sure it will still be game-themed, but probably restricted on genres or something.

Yeah, something that really helps is time to think up a concept to work on, but not necessarily work on it.

Also anybody can read this, so it's fair, IMO.

Yeah true, although the contest will be announced via e-mail to all members, so those that didn't see this topic will be disadvantaged if I start posting info here.

Also I hope people learned their lesson from last year and will backup often, this time. We lost about 10 entries to mem clears I think. Also I think only two entries were submitted before the last 24 hours before the deadline. X.x

Yeah, it's better for people to not bug me non-stop about it either too, like they did for the contest results last October. Otherwise maybe I'll require everyone to use OS 2.71MP during development. :P

* Darl181 stabs scout for breaking the 'yeah' wall :P

I'll probably participate too (if there's axe involved), but hopefully this time around I'll get the entry actually coded on time XD

I'm personally not for an "Axe Only" competition this summer.  It was nice last time because it was new and unique and gave it an establishing kick into the community.  But instead, I would like to see an ASM category for the next competition which would include axe programs.  I think because development speed for Axe programs is significantly faster than ASM, most entries in such a contest would probably still be Axe programs.  And if Axioms are used the way I'm hoping, then the pure ASM programs would have very little advantage in any game development competition.  This also gets rid of any notion of cheating from using certain Axe commands.

I'm not trying to discourage any plans DJ might already have though, this is just my opinion.

If they did combine axe and assembly, I think the assembly programs should be given a bit more consideration for quality ;) or at least for some aspect.
