Freedom Fries? I love that this was actually a thing. I will tell my grand children of it.

EDIT: You beat me to it.

I think a clearer way to move forward with that would be to change it to "not previously submitted as a compo entry". The reality is we want to be as flexible as possible. Reuse of code from other compo entries or anything else one has permission to use is perfectly fine. This seems to be a FAQ so perhaps it should be made clear on the compo page.

This sounds extremely weird. In french we'd says something like "compète" it we had to shorten "competition".

Quote:
I thought of that, but as an American, I'm obligated to dislike anything that seems French. Nothing I can do about it; it's in the contract. :D

Don't worry, the United States of America are also cordially detested here. And also they're not refereed to as "America", which refers to the whole continent in our language (i.e. "The Americas" in English).

Quote:
Freedom fries woo!

I don't understand why they need to make up a new word for this, when there is a proper word in English language : "Chips".

Do you also mean to exclude commercial homebrews releases, or do you think that should be acceptable. I wouldn't want someone not to enter because they don't think they have a chance of winning (even though everyone who submits an entry usually gets a prize).

Yeah commercially released homebrew games often exceed the 64KB limit anyway. If someone wanted to submit a previously commercially released game, my suggestion would be the anything goes category. Perhaps the game is no longer being published, and it we'd be happy to include it in the action53 project. Honestly I don't think we need to be too concerned about people abusing the rules here to try and win the competition. I'm more concerned about people feeling their work doesn't quality for submission when it would be welcomed.

For anybody who might find it useful, I've compiled the Everdrive N8 USB loader tool for LInux x86_64: http://csh.rit.edu/~moffitt/bin/ednusb

The source is an unmodified copy of Krikzz's Everdrive N8 USB source that comes from here: http://krikzz.com/pub/support/everdrive-n8/development/

It is now 100% clear, thanks everybody.

It's just that I've seen other competitions in the past in which organizers were really anal about this issue. And I mean really anal. I've seen entries disqualified 'cause the author announced he was coding it in his blog before he did in the official forum. As silly as it sounds.

I like the way it is in the NesDev compo.

I'm afraid I'd confuse the compo with Strong Bad's shortest lived (well, not time-wise) computer.

Everyone is familiar with the (admittedly strange) word "compo", so it's best to just stick with that.

All this discussion - we all could have put out a simple game in that time!

Congrats! You beat me to the first progress thread! 8-)

There seems to be an issue on hardware though. Something with the graphics. Are you bankswapping CHR-ROM?

I am unsure whether I want to make a progress thread or not. Having the game as a surprise would be fun.
