SMS Power! 18th anniversary competitions
Post Posted: Fri Feb 06, 2015 2:04 pm
As usual, we will be having competitions this year to celebrate 18 years since SMS Power! was started (as SMS Camp) in 1997.

Coding competition

Write something that runs on a Sega 8-bit system. It has to be something reasonably new, no game hacks or small updates to old releases. If you're thinking of getting into SMS coding, now's the time!

Music competition

Make some music, either that uses Sega 8-bit hardware (YM2413, SN76489) or is an arrangement of music from a Sega 8-bit game.

The prizes

Nothing less than a place in history as the winner of an SMS Power! anniversary competition.

The deadline

27th March 2015.

More details will follow.

I'd like to have a Graphic Board drawing competition too, but in the case of particularly impressive entries, I'd like to have some indication that they were legitimately produced by a human. I'm thinking of maybe requiring BizHawk movies of the painting (which could be faked too, but that's pretty hard), but I don't think it supports the board yet... Maybe the standard of our last drawing competition suggests I need not worry...

If a trusted, known community member (or a generous donor) is willing to arrange prizes (including fund raising) then let us know.
