    Wow, what an overwhelmingly nice surprise to see my project at the top of the list! Huge thanks to everyone who voted for DSx86 (and DS2x86), I am quite humbled by your interest and support!

    Also my greetings to all the other winners and participants (and of course organizers and donators!) for this event! Too bad it is over, it was quite fun to take part, and it was a big motivation boost to keep working on my projects.

    Thanks also to all of you who have tested DSx86 and DS2x86 and sent me the debug logs and other information, without your help I doubt I would have won this prize.

    Now I gotta figure out the best use for the prize money! :-)

    I'd say, put the DS(2)x86 work on hold and go for a vacation for a week [​IMG]

    wow, i've got to get busy checking out some of these homebrew, and looks like it had a pretty good turnout, but i'm kinda sad that alekmaul won his 100th spot instead of iMenu sneaking in on the DSTWO homebrew section

    regardless, congratz to everyone, keep making your awesome crap

    The only thing that bothers me is that
    (1) 3 emulators in the same section
    (2) 2 emulators for the same machine in different sections by the same coder

    I'm not bitter though, congrats everyone.

    Wow the difference between first and second in the DSTwo category is brutally close. To think if I had not entered that Nyan cat for DSTwo, it could have easily swayed to a 4 point lead for DS2x86 or maybe could have put iMenu into 3rd.

    Regardless of my position, I'm shocked at how well BAGplug has been adopted by the DSTwo users. BAGplug had a very low user base in release 1.0 but then exponentially grew after release 2.0. I like to attribute that to the new skin I created for the release (first release had a horrible skin, but I'm no artists), for without it, no one would even care about the amount of features included. [​IMG]

    I'm not sure exactly how many people are using BAGplug now, whatever the number, it is way higher than I could ever imagine. I'm happy to have created a product that happens to fulfill the needs and wants of a menu for so many people.

    For that, I just want to say thank you to all the members who have provided feedback (good and negative) for the project, without it, BAGplug would not be the way it is today. Also thanks to the users (mentioned in first post of BAGplug thread) who contributed icons and box art for various systems and homebrew, if everyone had to make their own visual content, BAGplug probably wouldn't be as popular as it is.

    Congratz to all winners.

    lol, that was close. What if both entries would have recieved equal points? I would made DESCENT No. 1 because unlike ModMii it's a real Wii homebrew application, compiled with devkitPPC/libogc and not just a compilation of tools from others with a batch script. Nonetheless ModMii is still one of the best things happend to the Wii scene, special congratz to XFlak.

    Hi Everyone,
    I was very surprised about results and also very happy.
    I know it's only emulators but my goal was to allow DS-i users with iEvo to use them.
    As as said previously, i will continue to port uems to DS-i and Ds and DSTwo of course.
    I will also continue to do some games for DS/DSi.

    For example, here is my todo list for next months :
    - Mame4All with Neogeo support (only few games due to memory pb) and bug fixing
    - A5200 with better analog joystick support
    - ColecoDS with DSi support

    - Some new games for another compo perhaps ... ;-)

    Congratulations for all people who participate to this bounty and thanks again for the prizes.

    See you for the next bounty !

    Fantastic initiative from GBAtemp, as usual they really think about the community and can offer some worthwhile prizes. I think the winners are actually more happy with winning money (and lots of it!) than winning some material things like flashcards.

    Congratulations to all the winners.

    And to the judges.. Thx for the 3 votes.
    I guess you liked the menu or something, cause as far as I can tell you haven't played the game.
    TanksDS is currently only playable online and all servers are registered in a database.
    As far as I can tell no servers have been registered since May 24th when I finished developing.
    I put a lot of effort into this. You could at least have tested it properly.

    Also rofl at 2x source ripped Atari emulators.

    And if I sound butt hurt it’s because I put an insane amount of effort into debugging the network protocol.

    congrats to all the winners!

    imo, xflak and giantpune made the biggest contributions for the Wii despite their being PC apps. you guys have modded/fixed a lot of wiis!

    Giantpune should've deserved a prize too. His nand creator PC Utility is really helpful. I thought for sure it was going to be mentioned there (I mean in the first three places).
