what about existing code-basis :rolleyes:, library and such not existing game changed to theme ?

This is covered in the first post, existing code base, libraries and assets are all good to use.

Ohhh the clock is ticking, can't wait to start. Since it appears my only windows option was windows 7 for a release platform I had to call around and enlist the help of my mothers laptop for the weekend...worked out because she is going away this weekend anyway...phew. I hope the theme is something I can work with, this is the first time I have participated in a Dev contest so I am very excited but nervous. It'll be a good learning experience and it will definitely bench mark where I am at with game development. Anyway I wont be posting again until I am done with the competition so best of luck to all other dev's and happy coding.

Thanks again for hosting this.

So what is the theme? Am I being really dense and have missed it?

More like 50 minutes.

I'm sat here waiting now. I've got Food, Coffee, Whiskey, Coke, pad of paper, and Empty VS project and some tunes playing. Lets get it started!

Oh yeah, my bad... For some reason, I remembered that the theme would be announced 30 minutes before starting time... I don't know where I read that, cause it sure as hell isn't anywhere in this thread! Must be THE FEVER

Seriously! That's an awesome theme. Might have to stick the song on repeat in the background so I can remember the theme...

Glad you guys like the theme.

What do you mean, Muzz5? Are you asking if it is required to post screen shots, code snippets, or whatever as you're making your game? If so then no, you certainly don't have to. I'm sure everyone wouldn't mind seeing them though :)

I'm planning on making a timelapse video using [url="http://code.google.com/p/chronolapse/"]Chronolapse[/url], mainly because I enjoy watching them and have never made one before. Great theme by the way!

I was thinking of doing a Time Lapse, but seeing's as this is my first contest I wasn't sure if that'd work too well, or just end up getting in my way.

So I might follow Servant of the Lord and add my progress into [url="http://www.gamedev.net/blog/757-graphics-engine-development/"]my Dev Journal[/url]

Thanks, I was looking for something good to make a timelapse; couldn't find anything that wasn't shareware...

Writing a loader for PNG level files now... My mspaint test level looks like this:
