Heres the world map.



I made all the maps in Game Maker 6.1, then exported everything with screen dumps.  I've started the GLBasic version, movement and collision systems are working but I still need to make more collision maps.

Heres a walk-around from the GM version when I was building the maps.

backslider, there is a concern with the introduction and update of the LD comp ending on the same day as this one (note it's a competition not contest).  :help:

http://www.glbasic.com/forum/index.php?topic=5096.0

It's been suggested to me that I submit to both competitions. This can get complicated and note I haven't stated my remake title yet due to these type of reasons. It this acceptable, at least on LD terms, to be clear of disqualification?  >:D

The Rules are:

- All graphics must be self-made
- the sounds must be 100% free or created by yourself

I have a few questions about this.

What does "All graphics must be self-made" mean in this case?
-to "not use any sort of rips, but only original graphics made specifically for this game, but not necessarily by me - it's okay if someone else has done it for me"
...or "absolutely only using graphics that are made by myself"?

...and the same question regarding sound.

The art bit is what it is, you have to recreate the graphics yourself, but the sound part says it either has to be made by you or be royalty free/freeware sound.

Like the kind you get by searching for 'free sounds' or 'royalty free sounds', theres quite a few websites.  Technically that would mean you could use royalty free midis/mp3 for music too.

But you will have to check even at some of the free sounds sites what conditions if any are.  Usually they are pretty open and you could sell a game with them, others are only free if your game is free.

In that case I'm out of the competition as I've had another person do the graphics for me.

That should be fine, as long as they are originals and that person is credited in the game.

I think they just don't want you to rip the original graphics from the game.

In that case I'm in again.  =D
..however, that was what I was asking about.  :whistle: ;)

@phaelax - try MSPaint - a few dots here and there and a simple hq2x filter, maybe?

Yes.

Upload your game, post your link here and post it in the german thread, too.
I have to say, that I hadn´t enough time to finish my game :( *shame on me*.

It´s nice that you and maybe some other participants will or already have finished their games
and that we can test it then :)

After that we can vote, which game is the "best" ;)

cheers

Alright, thanks.

I already posted in the German thread, and uploaded it to the Showroom too, but here's my post from the German thread again for those who don't visit both threads.
 
I've finished my entry to the competition.

It's called 'Binary Land' and you can find it here.

Here's a few pictures of it;
