27th October, 2009 at 06:59:19 -

officially declared open source month.

Games that are submitted with source code (and comments), and are at least 1 complete level long will be the proud owners of some shiny DC points and an uber exclusive "I participated in Open Source Month" trophy and tag.

I know it's not much, but open sourcers do a great service to this community; I just wish there were more of them.

I plan on going through most of the open source stuff this weekend, in hopes of making an Open Source pack that will be hosted on TDC itself; so that the information will always be easily accessible.

Open Sourcers unite!

Great Idea Shab! Someone should create a logo for this and Shab, you should post this on the front page to, linking to this forum post.

Thumbs up

I will once November starts. Been working on getting a bluetooth headset that works with my ipod so I can join you guys on the podcast (computer is in the same room as sleeping baby, so that just doesn't work). I think it was Robert who talked about open source things, and I wanted to expand that into a full blown discussion.

Note to ipod touch owners, you need an A2DP headset. The cheap ones wont work.

This would give me an excuse to pull one of my older, unfinished games out of the dusty bowels of my hard drive. I'd just need to slap some helpful comments around the coding, and presto!

I didn't know so many people actually looked at open source games so much. I've looked at one, ever, and that was an example I asked for. This doesn't make me super cool or anything - I wish I had the patience to make sense of someone else's code but I don't. Maybe I'll submit something for this but generally my code is so messy that I'm embarrassed to look at it myself, let alone put it up for public viewing.

I'm making a simple web game right now. It's in the very early stages, but when I finish I'll open-source it.

Here is the current source. It works as a java build as well!

I like this idea, every November should be a time where we look back at game projects we started and never got too far with, but has some valuable coding or graphics or music or something that other people could benefit from using. Maybe even go back and work a little more on it and prep it for everyone to look at (adding comments or annotations).

I'd be happy to give out points, but I don't know what Shab had in mind or whether he had a big to-do planned or a trophy image ready. He currently seems to be MIA/AFK as is sometimes the case.

I should think he wanted to give rather large sums, so for now I'll give you each 500. How's that?

EDIT: If you submitted an open-source game and I did not send you points, just DC Mail me. When Shab comes back we'll get trophies and other door prizes sorted.
