The one year i'm too busy to do a separate music entry, and there are no music entries?
=(

I'll try to test the entries tomorrow. But everyone who codes for the SMS, is a winner. :)

Everyone: if you want to update your entries, add better screenshots, etc. you can either edit the Wiki yourself (if you have access) or post in your thread, and will be apply the changes yourself. Please don't e-mail the competition address as we don't monitor it as much as the forum :)

@eruiz00 If you can please upload the final version with source codes included for reference. I have uploaded your v1 with sources and your v2 without sources :)

Will try to add the hacks later tonight, if not tomorrow.

I just fixed a few minor issues with the wiki entries, nothing fancy, and added devkitSMS and PSGlib tags so that they appears listed in the relevant pages.

We had less entries this year, but the quality is high indeed!!! ... well, of course excluding my own entry ;)

I'm starting to feeling like "shouldn't we add a '9 ½' to the poll options?"
because otherwise I have to award 9 to half of the entries, they really don't deserve any less, so I'm not going to give 8 to many just because I've got a personal preference...

Perhaps we should change to 90s games magazine scoring, with the only possible values 70%, 80%, 90%, 91%, 92%, 93% and 94%.

or just add 9.1, 9.2, 9.3, 9.4 which is actually kind of equivalent...

BTW I do understand that the voting phase is already on the way so we might eventually discuss this for the next year :)

To be honest, I was joking. If they are so close then you must not be able to distinguish between them - or you can recalibrate your scale to open more granularity.

uh, ok. I never get jokes - I actually thought it was a good idea.
Thanks for your suggestions, though.

How long the voting phase will last? I have just voted as I'm leaving in a few days... (and it's a pity I couldn't give some entries the time they deserved)

Not sure yet, usually we do about two weeks.

Another great competition.

It is a joy to go through all the ROMs and see what everyone has come up with. Thanks to everyone that contributed.

When are the official results?

It would be nice to not count the note 2 on Spitfire SP-20 and 1969 for example, probably coming from a troll.

We de-troll the results, don't worry. We should end the voting soon, but Omar is a bit busy with some game he wrote and I'm a bit busy with real life, let's see when we find time.

Dont see why order or detroll the results. Everyone was nice submitting content. Was impressed by most of the uploads and the feeling that everyone here loves this mix of development, technical learning, those 8 bit old games, good music, demos, etc.

Yes, but downvotes can easily skew results with our small voter set. Abusive voting is not uniform.
