    The GBATemp Homebrew Bounty is well under way. There is more than $5,000 up for grabs. The only requirement is that the project must either be completely new, or come in a new version that presents significant updates. The final submission deadline is May 31st. Users can still contribute to the bounty in the form of Paypal donations to filetrip/at/gmail/dot/com.

    Please pass on information related to the bounty to any developer that you know, or Web site that hosts Homebrew news! The more we get the word out the greater potential we have for new and significantly updated Homebrew projects.

    This. Also, THIS.

    Seriously though, that GBA emulator for the DS(i) is amazing, and I'll be damned if it doesn't win first in DSi, DS, and Special Prize. [​IMG]

    And it was mostly funded by the sales of our GBAtemp edition DStwo.
    I'd like to thank all of you who were kind enough to purchase the flashcart.
    You made this possible. [​IMG]

    I wish that people entered something other than SDKs and emulators. Fancy NDS apps have always interested me.

    Call me crazy, but I'd have to vote for the highly polished classic DOS emulator DSX86 over that 2 FPS GBA emulator with no sound.

    The GBA emulator? It's okay, it's a proof of concept, but it doesn't serve any REAL use.

    On the other hand, if I was to choose right now, I'd let DS2x86/DSx86 win first place. About Special Prize... let's wait.

    Cool, I'm currently working on a new version of MIDIControl DS [​IMG] I doubt it will win anything though, since it's really for a specific target and not useful to the average Joe.

    We're working on a little something over at GH. Perhaps we'll have something to show by the end of this competition.

    Just thought I'd throw this out there, but that's not a complete list of donators to the Bounty.

    Any more competitions coming up? Looks like this one is pretty much over, which is a shame.

    Question:
    I'm not a programmer, but I dearly love Homebrew stuff, and have an Acekard for DS...as well as a Supercard for GBA.

    will this Homebrew Bounty stuff be featured somewhere for download? I don't want to sift thru FileTrip for all of it, I'd like the seriously new stuff in a separate location for easy browsing.

    One other question about this, as well. I have my own business...very start-up...no actual cash flow yet...BUT...in the future, will you be accepting any sponsorships for this in future Bounties...and, if so, do sponsors get anything...like some minor free stuff, or even a banner ad somewhere on the site? Not that my business is related to gaming at all, but, a thought...
