    I do not think you guys intentionally did anything wrong, I know you guys are doing this contest for the good of the community and I appreciate that. You have done more for the community than most everyone, including myself. It definitely increases moral of developers as well, which I think is a really good thing given the generally toxic scene.

    You had public releases 3 months ago on your github. And the main library created that you are using for the video playback, has had public releases 6 months ago. I don't think your program is eligible.

    ldn_mitm also appears to be partially ineligible as it has public releases before december:

    SwitchThemeInjector also appears to be ineligible due to before December releases:

    Where are these public releases? You're linking what exactly? Proof they worked on these before December? Something that was outlined as being fine in the rules? Leave it be. @Cyan is probably the most thorough among us here in knowing when things are released, and what's changed for the bounty versions. Leave it to him and things will be fine.

    Im linking to public github where they released the code.

    Why should I let it be? I am being told large portions of my app are excluded, while large portions of other apps are not being excluded. I am simply pointing out the hypocrisy, and how some apps, like mine and NX-Shell and being partially disqualified, while others are not. The easiest thing to do, is what I and others have said, just drop the eligibility date back to when the contest was announced.

    edit: the contest should allow all of my app, pretty much all of NX-Shell, and Rei's Toolkit.

    Just going to be honest here, the "window" thing was not clear at all, but even if it was its just silly because it encourages people to delay their app releases for months rather than putting them out there and working on them.

    I've been watching this thread recently because the influx of new apps should be coming in the next few days. I don't even understand why the nitpicking of rules. They haven't seemed to strict thus far and the only disqualification i have seen is due to the submission not being an app that runs on the switch. Where else has anyone even made any distinctions due to the window frame? Additionally the admin also said the judges have brains so will probably taken the submissions fairly. Ultimately it's not even the admin or mods deciding on the winners it's also the patrons and i forget the other voters but i don't see the reason to get hung up on rules.

    It was actually so unprovoked that i feel was a premeditated issue to arise just to hassle.

    I think you could also be disappointed that to one that i have seen so far has taken the low hanging fruit and start arguing politics with you. Perhaps even after you said what you intend on doing with the winnings you were ready yet it was still completely ignored which probably irritated you further.

    The issue came to a head, when my submission post was edited by a mod to show only the eligible parts of my change log. The disagreement did not come out of nowhere or manufactured.

    Second, I only put a political message in my submission, because a political message was put into another submission (Lockpick). I am not criticizing lockpick for including political message, it is their software and their right, but it is also my right to protest by putting counter-political messages in my app.

    It's your right, i was just saying i think you were expecting more attention for it which is why you brought up donating it.

    To think your submission will only be based on the changelog would be odd. I still don't understand the full history behind your app but i know its vast.

    That is a reasonable conclusion. I did not want to publicly state it (though I had told people privately of my intentions). I only mentioned it publicly because I was accused of sittring up crap because I wanted the money which is far from the truth.

    Well now reading from the beginning It seems you were anticipating some kind of hassle back on the second of this month. From what i can see though it's that all cyan did was put the December changelog onto your post.

    We'll see once the dead line is met. As it stands right now they're isn't a ton of competition.

    Your just fucking full of crap, from your first post to now, and with your crappy, closed source, licence fucking and "trump" themed thing.

    1. Please, say me where you saw a public release of pPlay, I'm so impatient to see that. I can't imagine you even written your trump crap as you clearly don't know how git can work.
    2. Maybe I didn't read the rules clearly, but I don't think it's forbbiden to use 3th party libraries. If you want to go this route, maybe your using SDL2 for rendering? Which was released some years ago? And which was, by the way, ported by me to the switch (yes, crap, you are here because of me..). You're probably using libnx too no? There was multiple releases of it...
    3. Don't try to take a revenge because I asked for source code. This is all your crap. You're lucky, I'm moving to a new home this weekend, and so I don't have the time (nor the computer) to take a closer look at your thing (concerning licences), but I will soon, as promised.

    Seriously, don't you understand? The amount of time we (libnx, sdl2, pacman..) put and share for you to make this app. Yes you can (could) make a closed source program, but it just show how bad you are against other users/devs.

    Quite frankly this just looks pathetic. You're targeting any competitors because they had their source code pushed before December.

    Just because a projects source code has been pushed does not mean it has had reasonably stable releases (stable release -> publicly posted and supported version from the dev) from those commits.

    Wow, at the end of the previous page everyone seemed calmed down and then....
    Sorry but it's stronger than me, i can't help but smile at online drama, laugh at people getting upset over trivial things.
    I usually just lurk and rarely take part in it but now i feel called into question so let me just throw in my two cents:
    1) Even if i'm not an english native speaker the rules were pretty clear to me
    2) This is just for the fun so please keep all the political crap out of it.
    3) Telling if other devs respected the rules or not should be done by the mods and not by you.
    4) Looking at the seemingly random commit you linked you didn't even bother to read what's my submission about and probably you didn't read the others as well.
    5) I still don't get all the stuff that happened with the tinfoil name.
    Please stop this nonsense and have actual fun when coding. I won't add anything else to this matter, have fun and happy holidays :) .

    thonkmop.
    Guess who's back? Team Thonk

    Back in October, We decided to release the best homebrew in history.
    We received outstanding positive feedback from our first release, Nintendo is now testing every switch with our Thonk app before packing them, Miyamoto made Super Mario Thonk but kept it for himself cause he didn't think it can compete with our app anyway, Reggie also made a wall with switch consoles running our app in his home. Nearly all switches are running our app 24/7, no one runs any game on switch consoles anymore. Elon Musk contacted us and wants to send a switch console running our app to Mars instead of humans.

    But..., One of our loyal members, @Draxzelex suddenly became interested in mop, he couldn't stop thonking about mop's handle, This could lead to a drama BUT REMEMBER TEAM THONK IS DRAMA FREE.
    We couldn't let that happen, I couldn't involve other team members into this, I thonked a lot, spent many days thonking without sleeping, eating, ..., Suddenly I decided to make another app which i planned to release in 22nd century.
    Ladies and Gentlemen, I'm proud to announce Thonkmop
    Thonkmop is not only the best homebrew in history, but also it's the best thing that's ever made by humans.

    Features:
    Drama Free, Team Thonk doesn't give a f**k to anything and always have a solution for dramas
    Super ultra mega best Quality, Made by head of the most skilled programmers in the world who are thonkers known as Team Thonk, Me!!!
    Open-Source which is almost Closed-Source, Team Thonk advanced codes are open-source, you can use it although nearly no one can understand the super ultra mega complex algorithms of them

    Core Features:
    Imperfectly Balanced, Thonkmop is not exactly in middle of your screen, Right side has 1 px more margin than left side, thanks to the balancing technology of Team Thonk, You can now expect Captain Marvel to come and save humanity on April 24, 2019
    No political shit, We are not interested in making a country great again, we already made switch scene great again, also we are not interested in multi-colored flags too, we thonk only true colors in the world are thonk colors which are yellow and brown
    Name of the app, Yes, It's not Tinfoil, We thonked a lot and we found out that we can name our app something other than Tinfoil

    Omega Core Feature:
    EZ winner of homebrew bounty, cause developers will withdraw from competition as soon as they see Thonkmop

    Closed Open-source code: https://gist.github.com/The-4n/3a7337bd65234a0689fefb5653fa6405
    Download center link: https://gbatemp.net/download/thonkmop.35428/

    Engine room, learning
    it only displays a picture using sdl2, without any animation?
    at least it has key input check! thanks for the effort :ha:

    sorry, it'll not enter the bounty, we forgot to make a demo(scene) category
    I'd love seeing a demoscene contest. Like procedurally generated animations contest.
