Thread: I am hosting a programming contest.

  1. #1

    I am hosting a programming contest.

    I am starting a programming contest. It will be called Gunpowder Contest 2001. You create a shooter game, and when you're ready to enter it, post an URL to your game. I can be First Person, Third Person, or Platform shooter.

    There will be two divisions you can enter in. Original Engine, and Modified Engine. If you want the source to a great engine, Wolfenstein 3D by ID Software (Don't worry, it's perfectly legal as long as you don't make a profit from it) go to

    I used to use this engine, until I maxed out the engine. I put so much in it, that the frame rate was S-L-O-W. It isn't polygonal, but it still is in First person, 3-d perspective.

    You have until Spring 2002 to enter your program. Late Spring 2002, will be the judgement. Good luck.

    oh, and by the way, to be exact, March 20th 2002 is the last day to enter your game.
