Good idea, but it might make it harder, and thus, less people might participe. I have no idea on how to program for the multitap. I maybe should read through more of those docs.On a side note, let's make up special rules. Like you have to make use of one of the Saturn's accessories like the backup cart or the multitap.
Yes, I though about 3 months. That should be ok.Oh yeah, give a few months for the contest to run, say until June 1st?
Indeed, platform games would be a cool idea. It might be a little hard though. You decide... If there is a Free For All contest, platform games would be a possibility.I would really like to see a homebrew platform game. I was very impressed with CMU's work on Sack of Flour, Heart of Gold. I think one more release would have resulted ina very professionally polished game. I imagine something like that with better graphics would be very doable on a saturn.
That is a very good idea! I will put that up on the contest page that im making.Also, have all entrants document everything they do, as detailed as possible. After the contest is over, we'll have tons of original notes to grow the dev scene. That way everyone wins.
Also a good idea. I though about adding Audio to the poll, but i removed it. Might have been a bad idea. Vote on other if you want Audio-programming.i think not only games should be thought about when talking about a contest. what about a mediaplayer or something with a textbased menu
well, and i'm the crappiest guy to talk about graphics with. all i can do by now is displaying some polygons as some sort of background layer with text on it for not letting my TUI (yeah, that's TextUserInterface) look too B/W.Originally posted by AntiPasta@Mar 6, 2003 @ 05:48 PM
yeah that'd be nice... I'm thinking of writing a 1993-style demo (i.e. Unreal or Crystal Dreams-like), but I know zip
about sound programming, nor am I able of composing my own tunes...
KPIT's GNUSH is also available as precompiled Linux binaries (RPM only).Originally posted by wonder_k@Mar 6, 2003 @ 07:59 PM
another major problem for me is that no compiler (as i expect after some nights looking) running on linux is out there and i'm too subborn (or stupid) to set one up by my own hands...
this seems to me just like the word propriety would describe it best... also the registration does not work. what a dissapointment! *trying to copy a VMU*. thx anyway.Originally posted by TakaIsSilly@Mar 6, 2003 @ 06:51 PM
Kpit offers a "ready-to-use" Hitachi compiler on a RedHat package:
Look for GNUSH v0301 Tool Chain and download the one for COFF format.
It is fully compatible with the SGL and remaining libraries, as long as paths are correctly set.
Huh? It's just GCC, binutils and newlib in a cross-compiling configuration. As per the GPL you can get all the sources from the same place.Originally posted by wonder_k@Mar 6, 2003 @ 09:22 PM

You could try contacting them. I haven't had any real troubles, but their website seems to have some problems with Netscape.also the registration does not work.
