Post subject:  [News] Mini Programming Competition!

Hi guys!

Just thought i could maybe spice the community up a tiny bit with a mini programming comp!

The subject of the competition is: Rain Effect

As long as it has something to do with rain, then its valid.

The target platforms are TI-82, TI-83, TI-83+, TI-83+SE, TI-84+ and TI-84+SE and there are 2 categories: ASM(any shell) and TIBASIC. Hybrid BASIC+ASMLib is NOT allowed. ASM entries may take advantage of built in shell routines.

If you are currently working on an unreleased project and want to add a rain effect to it as part of this competition then that is fine, as long coding (for the rain effect) wasnt commenced prior to this announcement. Ill leave this up to the honesty system.

The competition is open effective immediately and will close 30th of July 2009 at midnight GMT (or there abouts).

Please email your entries to: tr1p1ea(at)gmail.com which i will compile into a list for judging. Judging will be done by the community by means of a week long poll.

The winner of each category (ASM and BASIC) shall recieve a crisp $50 note in Australian currency, posted to anywhere in the world. Even though I know it might not translate to a great deal in your respective currency :(. They will also recieve a cool trophy or plaque with something along the lines of "MaxCoderz Programming Competition 2009 - WINNER! Best Rain Effect", i am still to have these made up but i will post a pic when i do :).

Comments? Questions? Feel free to post them here and happy coding! Good luck!

I just read now.
My currency is Euro... :lol: But I make collection of notes.

I can try...
EDIT: I have one for BASIC.
Needs some tweaks.

I still have time for ASM! tr1pe1a can I enter in both categories?

I've got a spiffy idea, but who knows if I'll actually end up finishing it.

For currency conversions, Google knows what's up. :mrgreen:

Yes you can enter both categories.

Only 28 euros :shockedsad:

I don't have a good idea to ASM... Just have some easy effects to add...

Interesting idea, now it's a case of thinking of an effect and how it may be achieved. :-)

How about purposefully sucky grayscale so you get rain automatically?

How about if you have a six years old rain effect lying around? :)
And will it be judged on code quality, graphics, originality..?

Its judged by the community, so i cant speak for what qualities people will be looking for.

And yes, only 28 euro's ... it is a mini programming comp after all :).

I was surprised only by the conversion. :P
I Australia how well can 4 people eat in a restaurant with 50 aud?

4 people and 28 euros you have to eat moderately... And in a relatively cheap restaurant.

Id say the same here with 50, maybe just counter meals.

I guess it's time to get brainstorming then!
