    Really nice job Rockin :rock: the contest was well organized. All the entries looks really good and some of them could be the start of nice games.

    This year we have 3D, textures, transparency, custom effects and more. There still some feature we can add for next contest like gouraud, blur hi-res, ...

    It's time to congrat :congrats: everybody for their entries, the time spent to give us high quality programs. Thanks also to the judges who spent hours on testing all entries and give us feedback/ranking.

    Well normally I should participate and hope to see again more Saturn devers. For those who fear to start with SGL/SBL you could try the sega game basic(see my entry) ;)

    I did a miror here if you get problems with free shares :

Big thank you to you Rockin-b, with out you none of these would of been possible as well as all of those that donated all the nice prizes.

    Wow, I'm so happy that this contest turned out to be a success. Though with so many prizes, I thought more contestants would join the battle.

    There will be a next C4 contest this year, again. Like always, it will be free of any entry restrictions (like "create a shooter" or "make an educationaly game"). I will try to support and honour usage of special hardware features, professionalism in general. Maybe through extra points or extra prizes. It will be shorter, too, since the runtime of the previous C4's turned out to be simply too long.

    Thanks to all contestants, sponsors and judges. Hope to see you again at the C4 - 2007!
