    I think for a contest, having more gameplay isn't as important since most people aren't going to test the games for very long before voting (Maybe we should wait a few days between the end of the submission period and the beginning of the voting period, so people might spend more time playing the games rather than making a quick decision.)
    How much gameplay can someone possibly fit into one screen of code? I'd say one or two days would be enough.
    Well, no one is going to spend the entire time playing the games, but if we force people to wait before voting, they might go back and try the programs more, and possibly change their mind about which ones are the best. Also, the amount of code doesn't really determine how much gameplay there is. I've played games like Tetris for hours, and I bet that could fit in about 1 page of code. (I'm not making tetris though) I remember in the first contest I voted for one entry, then ended up playing a different one a lot more. If I had spent more time playing them before voting, I might have picked the better game. Allowing multiple votes has reduced this problem, but maybe not completely eliminated it.

    ha ha ha ha. I'm not sure my opinion here. It's probably a good idea to have a one day buffer, sure, but we don't know for sure how people behave in regard to contest voting.

    what do you mean by WIDTH 8 and line wrap?
    Default settings, I believe. Can't cheat by making the font smaller or leaving line wrap off so code goes off the screen.

    More like "can't cheat yourself by using WIDTH 16 (larger font) or requiring careful linebreak placement"

    Showoff. =D
    Isn't that the point of the contest though
    *Sigh* Since you somehow missed it, it was a lighthearted pat-on-the-back, not serious...I mean, my intentions should have been kind of clear with the "=D".

Programming Strength Disguised Hidden Website Night Person I like the quiet night and sleep late. Express Yourself i really need help, so if the code fits in one screen but splits into more after being loaded does it still count, like its all in one screen perfectly put but since i used chr 13 when loaded it splits into bigger but before loaded it is still all fit. does it still count?

  • #90 ✎ 141 Nathaniel Spring 2017 Contest Winner I won the SmileBASIC Source Spring 2017 Contest! Programming Contest Helper Received for being very helpful around SmileBASIC Source Achievements Staff Pick "Your program is one of our favorites!" - Staff Achievements A couple questions: First, how long is the voting period? I'll be gone until the 30th, so I want to know if I'll have time to vote. Second, are we allowed to use text compression? In other words, are we allowed to use the CHR$() and ASC() commands to compress two characters into one? This kind of takes away the challenge of the contest. Posted Edited by Nathaniel

    A couple questions: First, how long is the voting period? I'll be gone until the 30th, so I want to know if I'll have time to vote. Second, are we allowed to use text compression? In other words, are we allowed to use the CHR$() and ASC() commands to compress two characters into one? This kind of taks away the challenge of the contest.
    My humble opinion is if you know the trick, and can make it work.... DO IT. I don't see how that compression saves space. (HORRAY for the bliss of my ignorance!) I've asked for a tip earlier today, and I found this and I want to share this noobtip: E=DIALOG("instructions on button to press",-1,"TITLE",0) is a nice cheap (space ways) for a simple button input command. The command is not a catch all, as nothing else can run while in use. But it helped me reduce the total character count by 45.

Programming Strength OSP Contest 1 Contest Participant I participated in the first SmileBASIC Source OSP Contest! Woah, my first contest entry (somehow.) Micropaint A half-res limited paint tool in spirit of chatdraw. Features six tools, a rainbow of eight colors, and an undo function (up to 3 times back; no redo though.) Key: S34XHF I'm not exactly amazing at minification, but I don't think any space was absolutely wasted. A fair effort went into feature choice and presentation, so even if I don't win I'm rather satisfied. (Also I really like making paint tools for some reason.) I wanted to add things like redo but I simply don't think there is space permitting unless I somehow do a full rewrite. If you have any suggestions, tips for shrinking etc. do let me know. There's still time to improve my entry (and yours!) Posted Edited by snail_
