Thinking about it I will be entering :D - What I'll do is just not take any prize money without affecting the top 3 winners. It'll work like so..

Assuming - Member A gets 100 votes, Member B gets 50 votes, member C gets 20 votes and I gets 60 votes.

I will just become an "proxy winner" and the winners table would be :

1st place - Member A
2nd place - Member B + Qube
3rd place - Member C

1st, 2nd and 3rd all get the allotted prize fund. I think it's a better idea and I'm going with it :P
Until the next time...

@Qube,

My vote is that you compete fair and square with the masses - if you entre' is the best - you take the winnings. No bones of contention will arise as you'll have earned first place by the votes you receive. My 5 pence ;)

Personally I would not enter a competition when the person setting the competition, then wins their own competition.  Qube's solution makes sense...Actually it doesn't.  I'm out lol  ;)

It does make sense :D - I still get to play but don't take any prize money / winners placings away from members if I happen to get enough votes. Everyones happy, the sky is blue, the grass is green. Join in, have fun.

If me being in it doesn't have any effect on the winners or the prize fund then all is fine, yes? :)

Just get coding :P
Until the next time...

I think I'll be entering this competition if I can find the time...  I have a good idea for a Halloween-themed game.  I can't wait!    :-X

Over a week now and I've not added anymore to my game for this comp :( - I seriously need to get a shuffle on. Does anyone have a time stretching device or a magic spell so you don't require sleep? :D

It's the weekend, I must make the effort... Ruby slippers on, tap heals together three times - "There's no place like code, there's no place like code, there's no place like code".

How's everyone else getting on with their comp entry? :)
Until the next time...

Here's what I've done so far on my entry.

1. Came up with an idea
2. Launched Graphics Gale to create some graphics.
3. Got fed up with some of the limitations with Graphics Gale
4. Looked for something better
5. Decided to create something better
6. Realizing that if I finish creating my editor, it could be very useful, I decided to write it in B4J so it will run on all systems using Java.
7. Learn B4J
8. Got fed up with B4J's limitations
9. Tried using BlitzMax and MaxGUI
10. Got fed up with MaxGui's limitations.
11. Decided to switch back to B4J, found that getting around the limits of B4J is quite easy using their JavaObject types and custom nodes.
12. I now have the main GUI layout of my editor done. Just need to add some actual functionality.
13. At this rate, i should be done with my entry some time in 2020.

I've just had time to think of the idea so far...  A Five Nights at Freddy's type of game.  Should be interesting!
