    XtenDS Creations Competition 2008

    [​IMG]

    Basically, a DS Homebrew-developing contest. You have to develop your game using their software, XtenDS.

    For more information, read about it here.

    Prizes aren't too grand, but it's not really about the prizes...is it?

    Of course not.

    Its about providing mediocre incentive to try and convince people to make low-quality homebrew using poorly-made autocreation software.

    I've tried to use this software before. It didn't work quite the way I was hoping it might. But that may be me on the failure side. I eventually got frusterated enough that I began working with the PALIB examples and tutorials instead...which is a great thing. So..in a round about way this program helped me with my homebrew experiments =X

    Thats strange---I'd love to get a Playstation 1. or even a memory card. I'm broke and I like collecting [​IMG]

    I'm in. I'll see what I can do. I have the XtenDS program and I do have an ideal in mind. Count me in. I think this is a great idea! [​IMG]

    Thanks for starting this. Its an incentive to get people interested in GIVING back. Not just taking, taking, taking, taking all the time.

    Though I think that taking is great...meh, I'll go find some instructions for XtenDS now....

    Screw that second prize, screw the playstaion....
    ITS RIIIIIDGE RACER!
    *cricket cricket*

    Seroiusly though, its only five bucks to register.
    Though its a real drag they lock out so much :/
    Still its got solid features.
    If you can get into its system, why not right?
    Not too great for an entry fee though, but lets not think of it that way.

    A homebrew dev compo is always a good thing.
    Cruddy prizes or not.

    Just wish they would allow non registerd entriants too, seems kinda unfair in a way.
    Though ya, just five bucks if ya actually like the thing, so not too bad at all.

    I don't like the fact you have to use their software [​IMG]
    Really dunno how many people will buy it just so they can win a PS1 or 1GB Micro.

    It costs $5 to enter(to get the software) and the second prize is worth about $6,you may as well just buy one yourself.

    Had there been any enteries yet?
    I can't see any in the thread.
