    Fenix here I cometh! I've never missed a gbax compo yet, usually resulting in me accidentally not having time to bugtest.... :( (hehehe sorry about that one, craig) But this time I've already got a lot of the main engine coded, since I'm stealing it from another unfinished project of mine, so hopefully it'll be done.

    EDIT: What are the controls of this version of fenix?

    Yes it does. The a-data one works.

    Use the Search function before making false statements. The A-data 4 GB card works with the GP2X, it's already been posted.

    Why is the GP32 not part of it? There are ALOT more GP32's out there than GP2X's.

    Is there any kind of registry for the contest, who do devs just submit their programs at the deadline? Would be kinda cool if we could see who was working on what.

    I don't trust A-DATA card series. The way it is made, it reminds me of a cheap chinese ripoff...

    My friend has the A-DATA card, works great (1GB version).

    I'm guessing the 4 GB card actually costs a lot more then the GP2X itself.

    you submit them to gp2x2006[at]gbaemu.com following the guidelines on the page linked to in the first post. If you read it carefully you would see that the entries are a secret until after the competition is over and should NOT be released anywhere before the competition is over (i believe this may disqualify you.....).

    Well, you all have fun. Personally, I have no intention of entering this contest as long as the GPL licensing situation remains unresolved. I feel I would be insulting the developers whose work made the platform possible. But that's just me.

    Okay, sorry, I didn't read carefully. I'm not competing or anything as I don't know how to program, I was just curious from a user's persepctive as to what we might see. I'll just keep my mouth shut and wait patiently for the next 3 weeks....

    You don't have to trust it. You just have to nod your head and agree that it does indeed work. ;)

    I guess if you write firmware to support a 4gb card you instantly win the top prize? ;)

    So, is this just going to be a competition where as long as Zottd posts a version of gp2psx, he will win?

    Not to discourage anyone trying to win, but that is particularly hard to combat, and for darn good reason. With all his work, he definetly deserves it too.

    Yes but there two others places with prizes (the 2nd and 3rd) so... assuming that winning the 1st is very hard anyway... no big loss here. :p

    And don't assume that gp2psx can not be topped (but this not by me). We don't know what will show until the end of competition...

    Yea, there's many things that can top GP2PSX. (meaning that there are a lot of amazing things) Not to say GP2PSX is bad or doesn't deserve it.

    We'll know who deserves it after all the entries are made. ;P

    I think an enteirley origenal game idea that plays well could be a gp2psx beater, maybe. Id like to think something that sets the gp2x apart from other handhelds would be worthy of a prize. If indeed someone can do that! :blink:

    If you look at some of the previous winners we have had you will see that sometimes super simple games can win. Its quite random. And that's how we like it.

    Why would he be the sure winner? That emu is good due to the fact that it kind of works and alot of work was put into it. It is a great job but it is slow and most games are unplayable due to the hardware limitations. It isn't real practical for many.

    I think plenty of things could win over that. How about if a fullspeed with full sound PC-Engine emu popped out? I would vote for that over a slow PSX emu.

    That is just me though.

    That depends - you may not even get a chance to vote if the competition is not open to the community to vote ie the runners of the competition who do all the judging (boo sucks)

    I'd prefer to vote so the winner knows he has the support of the community. Mess and Vice would get my votes for sure, maybe PC Engine as I have played that a bit and finally finished Salamander!
