    The * applies to the whole statement, the ** applies only to "acceptable"

Programming Contest Intermediate Programmer I can make programs, but I still have trouble here and there. Programming Strength Winter 2016 Contest Participant I participated in the SmileBASIC Source Winter 2016 Contest! Programming Contest I think that dictionary is missing a critical definition, "Flight" verb. to run away quickly. When the knight appeared to challenge him, Brave Sir Robin took flight. Another example of this of this in another tense is when Gandalf says "Fly you fools!". Sure it's OLD English... but with this interpretation, you could submit a Undertale (pacifism) type game where the main mechanic is to run from all fights. Posted

    Funny you mention it, I had wanted to incorporate that game into the contest but I wouldn't be able to recreate the battle system. That definition will be part of my entry, though. Perhaps after the contest I could see if I can make what you suggested.

    Yeah, throw people out of planes in mid-air. That'd be fun! Hit the rings and get extra points! No, but seriously, if I'm gonna finish this simulator, I'm gonna add some spicy easter eggs ;p

    That's why normally I don'y bother too much with contests, since I know I can't make something good in time. But when I actually spend time into it, I can make something decent in a month.

    Agreed.
    This is some pinpoint accuracy. I can't make up my mind for what I'm making. Prepare for a maybe-I-procrastinated game.

Programming Contest Intermediate Programmer I can make programs, but I still have trouble here and there. Programming Strength Winter 2016 Contest Participant I participated in the SmileBASIC Source Winter 2016 Contest! Programming Contest We are now at the half way point, T-15 days until deadline. Plenty of time to watch all 4 seasons of Parks and Rec again. I would like to take a moment to announce my entry: A.S.T.E.R.O.G.U.E. (ass-ter-roh-ghug) ((yes I know there is only one "R")) --Screenshot of prototype Title screen pending-- A top down Plane VS UFO game similar to Asteroids... but with only the cardinal directions of travel, because it's text based. (plus lower all expectations as not only is this my first "real-time" game but also I only started on may 7... still plenty of time to make something kind of nice though.) And for all you beginners out there, look forward to a fully annotated code, as there should be no doubt in explaining everything on how I made this game! (and I don't plan on making custom music for the game, unless I have lots of extra time.) Posted

    I would be surprised if it wasn't "fine", you might get a faster response if you PM random...
