Competition CEO: New Year 2019

Post by coco.oric » Tue Oct 30, 2018 8:11 pm

It's time to code a game, a demo or something else on your Oric !

CEO has launched a coding competition which will finish at the end of the year. We hope that a lot of people will try to code a few lines and share their experiment. A public and free CEO-MAG will be published with all the software received.
It's time to download OSDK V1.13 or read again Oric's Basic Manual to push your ideas on the scene...

I hope the rules are clear as i didn't take time to translate them, and let google make the job :)

And for french people :

Good luck, and good sharing.
For CEO's team, Didier

Just to be clear, you do not have to use the OSDK: You can use any language, you can use native languages if you want, you can do BASIC, Forth , Assembler, C, Logo or whatever else comes to mind.

Interesting project, I need to think about it :)

Great initiative from the CEO, I am longing to see all the good contributions that will come out of it, and I will also try my best to contribute ! :D

There is one rule though in this contest (only listed on the entry form) that I didn't pay attention to at first but that is of particular
importance: contributions must be original, you may not submit a copy or imitation of an existing software:
See https://ceo.oric.org/lib/exe/fetch.php? ... 019_en.pdf:
(...) declare to be the original author of this software, which is neither an imitation or a copy from another software
Therefore, as I understand it, you may not submit your own version of Pac-Man or Space Invaders for example... Which will actually make the contest all the more interesting as it will foster creativeness!!

So let's hope there will be many of us having a try,

Good luck to all,

Laurent

As it's written in the pdf form :

Code: Select all

declare to be the original author of this software, which is neither an imitation or a copy from another
software (so the software have to be rights free).
So such software as pacman or an invaders clone, copied a lot of times shouldn't be forbidden.
I'm sure that some software using for example "les schtroumpts" won't be rights free.

Ok, thanks for clarifying this Didier!

So I suppose I could get on with my "Heroric" project (clone of H.E.R.O., see my avatar, I'm still hesitating between going full colour with attribute clash, or using AIC mode on this :D) as there is little chance that Atari would sue us.. And by the way this game was (recently I think) adapted to the Amstrad CPC!
