I know some of you don't check SMS Power! (bad you!), so I'm making a post here. Maxim has announced details of this year's coding and music competitions. The closing date is 23:59 GMT on 26th March. It sounds like ages away, but it'll come up very fast.
I've entered twice and had great fun - I would really recommend it. New to coding for the SMS? No problem; writing my first entry was how I gained most of my knowledge about the workings of the system. :) Sure, the resulting game was crap, but it was a fun process. Heh.
Should you need help, there's Stan's guide on this site and Maxim's great tutorial over on SMS Power!. Plus, their forums have a wealth of invaluable info. Check them out.
Yes, I'll try to get something entered this year. Not sure what, but I need to do something...
Let me know if you want a hand with anything, always happy to help out (in my limited capacity to do so) :)
Sweet. I'll definitely take you up on that offer. Once I get something started, that is... :)
At the moment, I'm still trying to get my development environment for SMS stuff set up. Although I have finally fixed a few bugs in the tilemap editor I built a few years ago, so it's not off to a bad start. Hehe. I'll hopefully be releasing that in a day or two - it may be useful to others (or not - who knows).
