Personal Information

  1. New 2D vb game programming contest

    Quote:Original post by Programmer One 3) Dude...VB?? Is that sarcasm in your voice? kidding <:0) 1: I had a MSDN Pro subscription so I am in no need of the software. 2: What's in it for me? Nothing really. Other then maybe getting a little more exposure for my <cough>lame website<cough>...<cough> Also I am holding the contest because I don't think there are enough of them for the 2D vb game programmers out there. And quite frankly a 3D gamming contest can often ask too much of people, and deliver too little. 2D is much more approachable technology wise. 3: And yes I am focusing the contest toward vb developers. Why? Because I am a vb developer myself and this kind of contest is the kind of contest that I would find aproachable, and worth the time and effort participating in. Unfortunatly I am the one hosting the contest so I cannot enter. poopy. :p The contest will also give the oportunity for someone who is still using vb 4/5/6 to upgrate to vb.net 2003.
  2. Just to let everyone know I am hosting a 2D game programming contest at http://contest.createdbyx.com/ There will only be one winner! The winning entry will recieve ... 1: VB.NET 2003 Standard 2: Windows 2000 professional SP4 3: Windows 2000 server SP4 4: Windows 2000 advanced server SP4 5: Visual Studio.net cd 6: A 100 page tutorial book adapted from the full book titled "Microsoft Visual Basic.NET step by step" 7: 3cds containing the MSDN library 8: Visual Basic .NET Upgrade guide CD containing How-To Videos, Self-Study Courses, New book chapters, and technical case studies. Some of the rules for game submission are the games must be a one screener style game. Meaning the map cannot extend beyond what you see on the screen, IE: no scrolling. Think Joust, DigDug, BurgerTime, Original Donkey kong. Games such as 2D space shooters (like Gradius) are also allowed. This is meant to keep the game as simple as possible.
