1st MSX-BASIC Game Contest!. Submit your game now!.
« en: 17 de Enero de 2006, 05:41:27 pm »
Welcome to the first MSX-BASIC Game Contest organized by the Karoshi Corporation Forum Boards!. Now I'll detail the basics of the contest:


Program format

The game should be presented in .BAS format, and it must run on MSX1. The program can have a maximum size of 24 KB, no matter the number of lines used. Inside the listing, no MC routines could be created or invoked (except BIOS calls): the code should be pure BASIC. At the end of the contest, and official .DSK image will be published with all games inside!.


Program contents

The programs must be videogames. The genre and theme is free. Although the game could be based on other existing game, THE PROGRAM SHOULD BE ORIGINAL. PREVIOUSLY RELEASED MATERIAL WON'T BE ALLOWED. The punishment for copied material presented will cause instant disqualification of the game.


Juror

The only juror will be the well known developer Albert Beevendorp (BiFi) from The New Image, author of romload and Palette Editor among other applications and with a huge knowledge of everything about the MSX system.


Prize

The winner will receive an official Karoshi certificate in PDF format, that demonstrates his victory in the contest ;), and an english edition of the book The Complete MSX Programmers Guide by Toshiyuki Sato, Paul Mapstone, Isabella Muriel, kindly donated by Eduardo Robsy.


Dates

17th January 2006.- The contest starts
15th February 2006.- Last day to send entries to the contest
28th February 2006.- Jury's decision will be published


Sending a program

Erm, I'm looking at rules and it says "The program can have a maximum size of 24 KB, no matter the number of lines used" does that mean we can use datafiles "in addition to" our program? ;D or is the entire submission a single file of 24k called [something].bas ?
Or is it?

Pure BASIC. And you cannot use any machine code, not even including it with DATAs, POKEing it into the memory and then calling it with DEF USR. No way: just pure BASIC! DEF USR is allowed to call addresses between 0000h and 7FFFh.

So, slow copies from DATAs to VRAM are required.  :(

I am afraid not - remember that BLOAD"some",S will not work on all MSX computers. Too sad.

Wow, I saw Pointless Drive in action earlier, but now that I have actually played it I can finally say:

o_O WHAT?! O_o

;)

Actually, it reminds me of many poorly translated crap games I was forced to play as a child. Ah the memories...

EDIT:

The Memory Game is ;D ;D ;D! Shame it takes so long to get the graphics calculated on a real MSX

it's fully pointless :)

and the memory game is cool!  but don't worry, maybe I could make an evolution of the counting kittens game
"DO YOU REMEMBER HOW MANY KITTENS THERE WERE?"

Hmm, dazzling!
Or is it?

Another kittens game! Hurray!

'For to count kittens achieve ranking top mode!'

Kittens are cute.

Beware your sanity though...
