  • #102 ✎ 53 Giant_Gamer Spring 2017 Contest Participant I participated in the SmileBASIC Source Spring 2017 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 spent from 8pm to 2am last night adding and polishing the game, and there is still a few bugs left in it. I never did get to adding power ups either. But time is practically up (at least for me and my free time before the deadline), so my entry has been uploaded and submitted. This was by far my biggest effort yet, over 2000 lines of code, and sadly I didn't finish notating all of it. What is there, I hope will be found to be an enjoyable experience for all. I'll probably update the game after the polls close in a month or two, to finish the code for the Homing Missile, Wrench, and Shield power-ups. (and maybe add a new UFO or two) Best of luck to the rest of you guys. I look forward to playing some great things soon! EDIT: I think the combination of Thrust's awesome and public early beta, and the new requirement of "Your entry must have at least some effort put into it" scared a bunch of people away from finishing and submitting what they had to the competition.

    No way I'm gonna be able to finish my project before the deadline. Should I just turn it in anyway? I only really started it for the participation badge and never expected to win.
    My game is hardly a game but I entered anyway. I'm not gonna add much more to it.

Hobbies "At least some effort" was just there to deter people from making a 4 line game that just spams "FLIGHT" all over the place. I didn't mean you had to make some sprawling RPG that would take hundreds of hours to create lol. Posted

    How many games must be entered into the contest for there still to be prizes?

    I could make it more efficient to work in 2 lines, then would it be acceptable?

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 Given how on the Winter one there were only 8 submissions, I would guess that 8 minimum is a safe bet. (The previous Summer "Color" stated a minimum of 10 entries) I'm guessing there might be the 'now standard' 12 to 24 hour delay "last call" to scrounge up at least 8 entries. Then voting will start a day or so late. Unless a last minute entry is submitted. I must say this competition is less about winning and more about playing the cool stuff the community comes up with. As a participant, I love the rush I get from planning to submission, and finding some way to push myself further then I have gone before. I also make a habit to create things that can then be shown to a classroom as I have been working towards getting a small group of homeschoolers together to teach a 13 week class on the basics of BASIC over the Summer. (For the next fall semester) Posted
  • #114 ✎ 962 randomouscrap Robot Hidden Easter Eggs RNG Hidden Easter Eggs Drawing I like to draw! Hobbies Yeah I'm not closing the contest until I wake up tomorrow, so you still have another 8 hours probably. Just be careful about submitting close to that time. Posted

    That sounds really cool! I would totally join those classes if I didn't live 3000+ miles from you. (I'm on Hawaii) Hopefully enough contest entries are made in time...If not, would you still give out the 1st, 2nd, and participation badges? (Minus any steam/Eshop credit prizes)

  • #116 ✎ 54 brilliance360 First Week Joined in the very first week of SmileBASIC Source Website Spring 2017 Contest Participant I participated in the SmileBASIC Source Spring 2017 Contest! Deep Sleep Hidden Website I went ahead and included what I have made so far to the contest, even though it is far from complete and has zero chances of winning. This contest did a lot to get the ball rolling on this project, so hopefully one day some day I'll finish it. Posted
  • #117 ✎ 962 randomouscrap Robot Hidden Easter Eggs RNG Hidden Easter Eggs Drawing I like to draw! Hobbies Thank you for your submissions! I haven't... uhhh made the badges yet, so you'll have to wait on those. You have 1 week to vote (ends at the end of June 7th). Vote for as many submissions as you want, but try to keep it to just your favorite 3 at most. Posted

    ... I want badges to have a consistent feel, and badges will not be consistent if I don't draw them all. Everyone has their own style, and I just don't want them all mixed up. You guys can come up with ideas for badges and I'll think about whether or not I want to add them! But I'm going to draw them myself, and I want to have the final say about what gets added and what doesn't ....
    I know you don't want just anyone to draw badges, but would it be possible if the people who entered the competition were willing to make the badge, with your scrutiny required for acceptance, and final approval? Well here is an attempt to mimic your style, I copied a few other badges to grab your color pallet and then put it together. EDIT2: fixed thanks Lumage (or not?) Edit3: the button to upload the .png from my hard drive is all colored purple, and the link was killed by the original host. A red balloon, a symbol of flight, but not directly tied to anyone's particular project.

    EDIT: boo that pic site is blocked on this site, or the other way around?
    If you click the camera button to insert image BBCode it will allow you to upload to our image hosting service.
