I'd like to announce the

Posted Image

This year's theme is Tools, Sims, and 3D.

  • Entries will be for the fx9860, the Prizm, and the Classpad
  • All entries must have been received by the 15th of August, 0:00, UTC in a topic on casiocalc.org. Results will be announced around one week later, depending on the amount of entrants.
  • No previously released program may be submitted, but entrants are encouraged to release at any time during the next three months.
  • Work must be original, but porting and usage of libraries are allowed.
  • All entries must be in a zip file under a folder (not directly in the zip). They must have a readme, and source must be provided.
  • Programs may be entered into multiple topics; for example, if I have a 3D simulation of a globe, I could enter it into both 3D and educational.
  • Judges may not judge categories in which they will enter. Judges must apply by the 10th of June
  • Prizes will be userbars, and whatever else we can get donated

Categories

C/Asm, Lua, and Basic will be judged together, with handicaps listed in the topics section.

  • Three Dimensional
    Create a program that utilizes 3D in some way. More points will be given for realism and better rendering (Raytracing versus Raycasting)
  • On-Calc Language
    Create any language that can be compiled or interperted on the calculator. Points will be given for greater extensibility, library support, and usability (or unusibility for esoteric languages- though they must be tasteful [line noise is not tasteful]).
  • Shell/File Manager
    The the Prizm (and to a lesser extent, the fx-9860) need shells (Of the $ kind) and file managers to enhance usability (and display pictures). Points will be awarded for usability (No mice, except for classpad) and features.
  • Educational/Simulations
    Create something educational, or something to simulate (Virtual ant farm gogogogo). Program must be original and creative (we already have enough programs that solve the quadratic formula). Make something kids can learn from.
  • Editor
    Create an editor of some sort.

Judging Topics

Topics will be judged on the following, using a 1-5 scale for each.

  • Category
    These points are to how well it meets each category's specs.
  • Graphics
    Is it snazzy? Do the features pop? Does it load fast? Two extra points will be awarded for basic games in this category.
  • Features/Originality
    What features are in this game/tool that make it different? What does it have that ABC doesn't? One extra point will be added in this category for lua and basic.
  • Documentation
    Is the readme thorough and well-written? Is there in-game/tool help? If I have a problem, is it easy to figure it out?
  • Usability
    How easy is it to do common tasks? Is the interface intuitive? Are the controls standard?
  • Bugs
    This is a negative category; If there are many bugs, this could seriously detract from your program, however, if there are no bugs, you don't have to worry.
  • Portability
    Up to 5 extra points will be awarded for porting your program to other platforms. More points will be given for reproducing the game more exactly (for ports to inferior hardware) or using the new features to give a new experience (for superior hardware). A multiplier will be added, depending on the language of the game: *.3 for basic *.75 for lua and *1.0 for C/asm.
  • H2G2
    This category's points will be awarded because the judges "really want to."
Remember folks, work hard, do great things, and most of all, Have Fun.

Given the initial response from users, I am considering eliminating the music/video category, and reducing basic to just 3D and Educational.

EDIT

[15:09:11] <@ffisch> i think maybe we should leave them in. we know a lot of syscalls for 9860, so i think we will see quite a bit of activity in that area
[15:10:18] <@ffisch> it would be only the prizm that would have drawbacks in that category


For this reason I shall leave editors and file managers in, but video/audio will be cut. All languages will be judged in the same categories, but with the following changes:

In portability, programs will be rated like normal, but the final score will have a multiplier added: *.3 for basic *.75 for lua and *1.0 for C/asm. Basic will also have a 2 point handicap in graphics, and 1 point in features. For the moment, there will be a 1 point handicap in features for lua, as there are few libraries. The rules will be updated accordingly.

The application deadline for judges is in 11 days. Me and the other mods at UCF are happy to be judges, but some of us want to enter in categories, thus disqualifying ourselves from judging that category. If we could have a couple other judges, that'd be great. Judges who have a classpad would be especially helpful, since only MicroPro has a classpad (I believe). We will evaluate the entrants, and release the final panel on the 15th of May.

Huh? Speaking about me? I will happily be a judge. (< I think no need to say here since I automatically was!)

Previous moderators of UCF with ClassPads visit occasionally. Maybe they want to be a judge too if they see this.

Hi,
I'm french and maybe you have already met me on Planet-Casio, Casio Scene or Cemetech.
This contest is really interesting. Thanks ^_^

I have a fx9860, a Prizm and a Classpad.
Thus I'm interested in judging Three Dimensional, On-Calc Language, and Editor.

I think I will enter into Shell/File Manager and Educational/Simulations.

We can enter in two different categories ?

You'd use deliberating in that sense, but that's ok.

You can enter as many categories as you'd like, even entering one program in several categories if it applies.

You must create a topic with the description of your program, with the program download link, ... (eventually some pictures)

But I hope that you'll be allowed to enter with this program :

3. No previously released program may be submitted, but entrants are encouraged to release at any time during the next three months.

Ok, since this is the last day to have judges enter, I'd like to tally up who we have and what they're judging:

2072: All Categories*
MicroPro: All Categories* (Has CP)
FlyingFisch: All except on-calc language
Me: All except on-calc language
Cartix: All except on-calc language (Has CP)
Puerobaz: Three Dimensional, On-Calc Language, and Editor (Has CP)
Krazylegodrummer: Shell/FM and Educational (Has CP)

*This is assumptions; they may enter in a category, but I haven't heard if they will

This leaves the following amounts: (+ is normal, * is with cp)

3D:		  +++***
Language:	+**
Shell:	   +++***
Educational: +++***
Editor:	  +++***

This is a little weak for on-calc, but we have an otherwise strong group.

Yes, I've a classpad. But I can only judges for the classpad, because I didn't have any fxcg10/20 or fx9860.
And I'm going to enter only in Oncalc-Language ;)

Brainfuck

Then I'll not release my own until you release yours. :)

I'm planning on doing a programming language is basic. It'll be fun since basic has those string manupulation commands.

You'll have a funny time making the tokenizer with those let's-call-them-"advanced"-for-a-calc commands :)

... [ MicroPro and others ] may enter in a category, but I haven't heard if they will

I'm going to enter only in Oncalc-Language

Seems everybody wants to enter in language. So few judges there... I may or may not enter in oncalc language too (depending on the progress of my invented language) But if that means fewer judges, I likely won't do that.

Shell/FM: MicroPro, Forty-Two, Cartix, Krazylegodrummer

We accept calculators, minions, and food.

(I'd also like to get another language judge on board, since we have only two judges there. *Stares at Helder*)
