    Is it fine if my entry is only compatible with n3DS / Wii U? Because this time I won't be able to make it work in time for o3DS.
    I would be surprised if it wasn't "fine", you might get a faster response if you PM random...

Programming Strength Syntax Highlighter Received for creating the code syntax highlighter on SBS Helper Received for being very helpful around SmileBASIC Source Achievements It's fine, but you'll probably get fewer votes since o3DS users won't be able to play it.

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 Has the English WiiU version come out? (I haven't paid that much attention... but I thought it was still Japan e-shop only) And other then playing Breath of the wild, I've not really played much else (or even looked at the wii U e-shop) due to lack of Hard Drive space. EDIT: As an old3DS XL owner I will be disappointed if I can't play an entry, but as a Wii U owner I would be happy to buy Smile basic and play it there. (if it really is available) EDIT2: So from what I can tell... Smile BASIC BIG has not come out on the Region 1 e-shop. (unless it was renamed?) And there are several concerns that because of the current Nintendo Blockade for software that would make the Wii U a better console then the NSwitch, and the various reports of several Kickstarters being forced by Nintendo to drop Wii U ports, it looks like all hope is lost for the port of Smile BASIC BIG.

    Woah, if possible would you be able to provide links to this information on the SmileBIG thread?

    I didn't think there was, but I didn't know if there was a way to program a handicap or if there are known limits I could avoid.

    Does SB use the new 3DS's processing speeds? If so (and you had homebrew), couldn't you run it through HANS with the processor speed set lower?

    I don't know enough about the 3ds, homebrew, or HANS to answer this question.

    HANS is able to manually set the clock speed.

    My keys for my demos keep being rejected after about five days. What should I do if this were to happen during the voting period?
    Maybe it's the name? Unless you've hidden something else in there. The only reason I can think that it would get rejected is because it's named "Thrust". Oh if it gets removed during the voting period, just resubmit it and let me know the new key. I'll update the poll.

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 Maybe change the file name to Booster, and have the "in game" name be Thrust. (alt leave out some letters. example: "RUST" or "THRST" ) EDIT: My game (if I can fix enough of the bugs before the deadline) will not use the full title as the file name. it's simply "ASTER" (Seriously I though programing a projectile on a grid would be easy enough to do! The UFO detects the hit except when it is in the corner of the play field, even though the upper left corner in this case is at "location 6,6". So I might post my problem If I can't solve it by Thursday.) EDIT2: I think I remember this not being a thing, but is there a command that lets you write text to the bottom line of the screen with out scrolling the rest of the text on the screen? My text based animated opening is plagued by a single line on the bottom that is always empty. It's something I can ignore but it would help the first time viewer, to be able to get into the game better. Posted Edited by Giant_Gamer

    If you put a semicolon at the end of your print statement, it won't make a new line.

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 lol found the problem. I started with printing out the values for the UFO X and Y cords. then I noticed when the bug occurred, the Y cord was not a solid number! This occurred every time the UFO spawned from the left and right side. Novicetip: Don't make typo's when tapping in code. U1Y=RAD(11) is completely different from U1Y=RND(11) I remeber now what happened... I started to spell out random, and then clicked on the only three letter shortcut, it didn't help that it's format when doing so is just like RND. And because I copied the left code, and renumbered it for use for the right spawn it was messed up both times. Now I can focus adding UFO 2-4 and testing them out, and finishing the game.
    I won't be publishing my entry because I fell ill and was plagued with real life events and was unable to make anything representing a game. My apologies.
    I'm sorry to hear that. well I hope you take a little time and post the finished game at some point down the road.

    I think breaking the 4th wall adds to the humor and I don't think the guidelines say anything about it (then again, I'm not the one who deems what's acceptable and unacceptable)?
