I said I''d make a little update in the "Did this die?" thread, but instead of listing features I''ll just post a screenshot of one of the GDA GUI''s. You can get an idea of the features from it.. I literally just started working on it a day or so ago, but maybe you can see where it''s headed. I have several pages of improvements and features to add or fix, so we''re looking at around a start of summertime contest. At least this time I have a vision from the very start. The first go around was more of a hybrid of another project I was working on that morphed into the beta contest GDA. Anyway, enjoy and speculate.

UNIX is an operating system, OS/2 is half an operating system, Windows is a shell, and DOS is a boot partition virus

This might be a stupid question, but will all of the programming functionality from the previous versions still be roughly the same? I ask because I wanted to get involved in the beta contest but just didn''t have time and was wondering if I could be working on a bot between now and the new contest and all my work be easily transferable.

Roughly, yes, but I expect you will have to make changes no matter what you do. The concept remains the same, however.

I''ll let out more details as I go along. Right now I''m doing some technology experimentation for the various new feature ideas and changes for making things better.

ok ok, so from what I gather gamedev::arena is either a programming or a gaming competition or both?


In a nutshel, you program little cave people to kill eachother with invisible guns. It''s fun.
