I think our new competition deserves its own forum topic. What do you think of our initiative? Are you going to send in a snowfall demo? What are your ideas, what is your approach?

I'm at least gonna give it a try
It's been a while since I did much MSX programming.

Example of an extremely simple (yet awfully stupid) snow effect in text mode (yay!). Spot the bugs!

By the way... I even had to ask on #msxdev how the RND(-TIME) thing worked. My coding skills are a lot rustier than I thought

Sounds like a great idea. Won't be able to submit anything this time tho.

/me too busy with other projects

Plus I already made one simple snow routine, long long time ago:

ftp://ftp.funet.fi/pub/msx/demos/xmas.pma

I hope a lot of people will contribute!

gee snout, never got in to FOR NEXT loops and ARRAYs I quess..

a snow mobile eh..

"press spacabar to shake/rock the mobile"

look it's snowing mamma!
oh well

Hey ro, what's going on with thefuzz.nl ?

Still under construction or no construction at all ?

Come on, pple are waiting for it!

I did not use FOR/NEXT and arrays on purpose, because I think almost everybody understands this

Hey ro, what's going on with thefuzz.nl ?

Still under construction or no construction at all ?

Come on, pple are waiting for it!

It'll be under contruction for a while, Ro has to sent in his entry for the Snowfall challenge first

ok, im getting interested again. just coded a very basic snowfall thing. but before improving it, i need some gfx! against every experience i have, im asking again for someone to draw (or send) me a SCREEN5 drawing. it should be something like a room with a window.

you draw, i'll make it snow..

is there ANYONE who can help me out here??

plssssss...

yeah, yeah.. some old story. I had other things to finish too, and did not receive stuff from Savage yet (the bastard!) well, think I'll throw it online soon, WITHOUT saffie's stuf.. whooaha.

Also had to do some serious restyling since some routines were kinda crummy. Next thing is to test on all browsers... come to think of it, some of ya'll out there using some exotic browers could do the job. (I mean any one without IE that is) Guyver, didn't you complain about not be able to see the javascript in the site intro thaz online right now??

ah, well. First things first, some snow... lemme think about it a night or two

maybe irrelevant to say, but I assume the artwork must be original to compete ?

(so, no rippin' the sd-snatcher viral intro snow scene )
