I would have been OK with the results being private in the future if you're planning on giving a joke entry the 'win'.

I think we all know that The Game is the real winner here
Actually at first I was contemplating starting the news article with "Basically, Cumred and his The Game entry have won by 100 points and got all votes, just to scare everyone, kinda like that fake news about how WFRNG Axe won the 2010 Axe contest. :P (the real results were posted the next day)


If i had won i'd have passed it down anyway since it was not really a serious entry :P

I think that if there were no entry, I would have extended the contest a bit. But of course such scenario was entirely possible given how new the site is and our lack of promotion outside CW about the contest. I am surprised that we managed to get that many entries, let alone more than most past big contests with large prizes. But again, we allowed computer/android entries, so that probably helped. :P

But in this case it wasnt bad at all to allow computer/android stuff too since at 4x3 the speed doesnt really make a difference per platform

Yeah that's why I included them. Since the contest mainly focused on creativity rather than programming and performance, this is why entries competed against each others and included all platforms I own. The only issue was pure TI-84+ BASIC and such languages, due to lack of grayscale support and speed problems, but JWinslow23 still managed to get the most out of that language and get 2nd place.

And if that few-pixel border wouldn't have been there, I'd be 2nd place+1 point. :P

But yeah. I wasn't sure what was so hard about it, once I figured out the best way to do it fullscreen :P

Hmm, I had a very surprising axsembly engine for the TI-84+ too. It worked quite nice. Sadly I did not implement a game :(
And then the time ran out and I wrote the PC engine in like 5 or 6 hours.

Yeah it's incredible to see how on monochrome models, Text() is actually so much faster than Pixel-Off/On(). On the CSE it's the complete opposite.

Aah I see. Maybe you could do a maze/dungeon game for calcs at one point regardless. :)

Yeah, I am definitly going to do that. The engine supports 4 level grayscale. Oh how sad, that I haven't implemented a game in time...
But yeah, I will redo TwelvePx on the calc; with more levels
