How about changing the rules to having it runable on a real saturn only? Just because it works on the emu doesn't mean it will work on the saturn or vice-versa. The goal should be building code that works on a real saturn.
I agree on that. As none of the emulators are fully usable at the moment, i say stuff should be penalized if it does not run on the real hardware (for example, on 2.7Ghz PC, SSF might run code _faster_ than a Saturn). I'll assist anyone who needs it's code running on the real thing, as soon as my Saturn is working again, if necessary ^^;
it's actually not a that bad idea since one could easily cut'n'paste his way through to a somehwat 'stunning' demo. anyhow, sugesstions are great but source is always better. take me as an example: i'd rather read the code that let someone explain me what's going on in our pretty much high-level communication aka speech.
btw, my project will be released under GPL as soon as the contest ends.
