    [​IMG] Homebrew bounty: a new site joins the bounty!
    Welcome to Nentindo.nl
    More good stuff coming up for the homebrew bounty! The dutch homebrew news site Nentindo.nl (yes, Nentindo!) have contacted me as they wish to join the homebrew bounty and donate $30 each month! And these $30 will be offered to the 3rd ranked homebrew author, meaning we now have three prizes!

    [​IMG]

    Many thanks to the Nentindo team! So let's recap what we have so far:
    • 1st prize: $200 (from GBAtemp) + bounty donations
    • 2nd prize: $50 (from Dev-FR.org)
    • 3rd prize: $30 (from Nentindo)
    Please allow me to remind you that these prizes will be offered to homebrew authors every month!
    In addition to that, I'd like to answer a very important question. A Neoflash coding competition is already in progress, so several coders have asked me if they could submit their entry to both the Neoflash competition & the bounty. The answer to that question is yes, but you need to remove the Neoflash splash screen before submitting your homebrew to the Homebrew Bounty.

    We'd also like to thank our partner websites for relaying homebrew bounty news, thanks to them we are able to gather even more donations.
    HomebrewWelt.com ([​IMG]) - Radio Ninty ([​IMG]) If you wish for your website to appear in this list, contact me by PM.
    As of now, we've received over $222 worth of donations from 19 generous donators!
    UPDATE! We've just received a fantastic $100 donation which brings our total to $322, meaning the winner will be receiving over $522! Woo!

    Fantastic news, the bounty is really opening up now. I never knew it would be this successful.

    Note to self: Make a homebrew app or game.

    Very nice, but I think the first prize is very disproportional comparing to others because of large donations. I think sharing the donations with the winners can correct this. Example:

    1st - 200$ + 60% of donations
    2nd - 50$ + 30% of donations
    3rd - 30$ + 10% of donations

    or others percentages, 50/35/15 whatever, just my opinion. [​IMG]

    hmm.. so i assume that this is open for all platforms?

    Hopefully this will be enough to bolster the amount of Wii homebrew

    Finally the dutch people do something in the scene, too (at least with the bounty, and the ds-scene)! It took too long for me.

    I'm thinking how about $160, $80, $40 and donations split equally?

    HOLY SHIT! I wish I could make a 1st prize worth homebrew. Damn! But I'm happy for whoever gets 1st. Next month will be good too. This encourages new homebrew. I think there is not enough homebrew, since the news seems dry in homebrew. This will help a lot!

    Someone who makes enough money to happily do so.....be glad there are such people.

    To be honest, unless the person brags about it in a thread, I don't really want to know "who" donated what amount. I think that should stay anonymous.
