16 Comment(s) kantackistan kantackistan What would be your response if I opened up Versus Buffalo for suggestions when it came to designing new Minigames? I'm thinking something along the lines of this: You submit your idea as a mocked-up screenshot. No words, no descriptions, just a single image communicating entirely through visuals. Then from that single screenshot, I can tell right away if it's a good fit for a rapid-fire, no-tutorial game like Buffalo. And if it's a good fit, it gets added in with a future update. ralsei ralsei Forum Leader Hidden Achievements Second Year My account is over 2 years old Website Expert Programmer Programming no longer gives me any trouble. Come to me for help, if you like! Programming Strength Not sure whether or not I would participate, but I think you should hold the contest. ProKuku ProKuku Pokemon Is Awesome! I love Pokemon! Express Yourself Night Person I like the quiet night and sleep late. Express Yourself QSP Contest 1 Contest Participant I participated in the first SmileBASIC Source QSP Contest! Definitely host it. I don't know if I'd be able to participate since I'm waiting for NA release of SB4 and also probably lacking programming knowledge in general, but I'd like to see what others come up with. kantackistan kantackistan To be clear, I wasn't looking for anyone to program their own Minigame. You could if you wanted, but for the contest I just wanted a picture of your idea. Draw your idea for a minigame (on a napkin, in MS Paint, whatever) and post it without any words or description. If I really like your idea, I'd do the rest of the work. kantackistan kantackistan Cool, sounds like a resounding "do the contest!"

Come to me for help, if you like! Programming Strength it would be really difficult to do multiplayer mode and singleplayer would just be virtual buffalo 1 again kantackistan kantackistan Rgames, early on there were some experiments on adding netplay to the original version. The end result was... underwhelming. There were more than enough sprites to go around, but at 240p the screens were too small to share with other players. and if you couldn't see what everyone else was up to, it really didn't feel like multiplayer. Most importantly, there just wasn't a "market" for it. The demographic of "I have 1-3 friends in the room who also have Smilebasic on their 3DS" is really small. And if you really did want to compete with them, all you would have to do is press start at the same time. snail_ snail_ Power User QSP Contest 1 Contest Participant I participated in the first SmileBASIC Source QSP Contest! Helper Received for being very helpful around SmileBASIC Source Achievements Amazing Contributor Someone thinks I'm an awesome person who has done so much for the community! Achievements This is great, but it seems very hard to introduce the mechanics to people who haven't played Virtual. Playing solo is the easiest way to learn. Will there be a Virtual port? kantackistan kantackistan Sorry if I wasn't clear - You can still play Versus Buffalo solo. At which point it behaves just like a Switch-remake of Virtual.

Love the improvements you made since the demo you sent me! This'll definitely be one of my go-to party games when I have friends around. kantackistan kantackistan Glad to hear it! I think that demo was so premature that I was still using the food bowl as a placeholder for the swimming pool...
