    Should've been like

    ThrottleX
    TrigWars
    R-Gear
    Sandbox
    Droplets
    Luminex

    and Escape shouldn't have even been in the top 10...the guy cheated on the polls, everyone saw it, why wasn't he disqualified and maybe even banned from future competitions. Frankly, his game couldv'e been coded in 5 minutes.

    I think apps wasn't bad, but RemaPSP and MMSPlus should've been switched.

    Booooo to the judges.

    I agree, mmsplus should have finished higher....

    how can remappsp be classed better in anyway than mmsplus,,,...

    seriously though.... wow it changes buttons, big deal...

    Also sandbox and throttleX were robbed of 1st and 2nd...

    Escape....omg, i cant beleive that got in the top 10....i code in lua and seriously there is no technical or inventive about it....true its original...but i wouldnt even class it as a game.....

    on my game entry, lua wormz :

    I was shocked to read dr neos comments about it... i quote dr neo - "Lua Wormz - Wormz
    > Not a good game..."

    Not the sort of professional comment you would expect from a competition orgaineser.....

    So what? is escape better than lua wormz? in anyway? technical or otherwise....answer no...

    I knew it wouldnt come anywere in the compo becuase i couldnt finish it in time....but what i did get done was a lot more advaced than escape.

    and unless everyone who voted for the games competition was smoking marjuana, no way would escape have got 51 votes.

    its a real shame that it had to be rigged like that, and i hope that guy who made that game gets banned from entering future competitions. It spoiled the competition in a big way.

    And his comment regarding trigometery wars was ridiculous - "TrigWars
    > Awfull game play, too dark, unplayable in my opinion"

    and sandbox - "Sand Box
    > Doesn't start on my PSP ..."

    how? you dont have to be a rocket scientist to put sandbox on your psp, no-one had any problems gettting it working.

    I would also like to point out a major flaw which probably cost annonymous tipster first place....

    I read through all of the comments and reviews by dr neo , and he didnt even list, review or mention trottlex....

    now comon....and everyone knows about the rigging...

    on a lighter note though...

    as this was my first ever entry into a coding compo, i fully enjoyed the challenge and was delighted to come in 5th place

    Hopefully get something good for my ds now

    So i think the dcemu coding comp can learn a hell of a lot from neoflashes mistakes....

    Yup, that was a bit out of order, but I guess there wasn't much they could do other than discount the whole voting poll (which would've pissed even more people off!)

    p.s. If you need someone to finish off Sandbox give me a shout

    Actualy you're more then welcome to have the source to contribute to the game.

    It's pretty clean.

    3 musicians, one graphist (all non-sprites stuff) and I spent hours and hours making the game as it is...

    And if doing a R-type clone was so easy, why the hell this game is still one of the shoot them up reference 20 years after ????

    damn, instead of being like that, do something better than sandbox and you'll win...

    Forum users can have this kind of opinion and they're free to say what they want, not you if you're a true coder and as you said hired by a "top" PSP game company... you should be able to see the work behind this dumb r-type clone...

    what a deception for me to see you writing those words...

    Oh, how this could have all been different if it was a DCEMU competition embued with fairness and the peoples voice... I agree with the general opinion that Throttle X was robbed and how in Gods name did Sandbox end up all the way down there?? Theres no justice in the world anymore!

    Thanks, PlagueMusic

    Hey, I'm just happy to have placed at all. It wasn't looking good based on the polls alone...

    While I can understand people not being happy with the results, I think they at least had good intentions with the split poll/judge scoring system. It lets them balance the popularity of an entry against a (slightly more?) objective gauge of its merits.

    Perhaps in future, if a more auditable poll is used (to prevent potential abuse), and a standardised score sheet for judges, this would be a fairer system than the alternatives.

    Anyway, congratulations to all the winners!

    Sorry. I was overly pist off at the results and not your project. DrNeo is a big r-type fan and imo that helped you a bit. You're game deserves top 3 but not first.

    Do I think sandbox is better then your entry? Hell no. Do I think sandbox deserved so low (loosing out to a poll cheater and rank far lower then simple 2d games), NO! Sandbox is far more complex then most of the entries.

    ThrottleX should have gotten first. Your clone is nice but there is not a whole lot there. I am a comercial coder and i've done ps1 game from star to completion in 3 months time doing 90% of the entire project by my self. Other then a pretty partical engine there is not a whole lot more there for the main game itself..

    The intro I actualy found really damn nice but sevearly disapointed you did not go anywhere with it, not even to make the main game run with 3d ships but 2d gameplay. Even advancing the clone to take reference from new age horizontal shooters which have taken the genear above and beyond r-type has in years.

    Lastly sandbox was far from an overnight project. There is alot of ground work done. As well sandbox is not just face value, there is a whole theme system behind it that allows for it to expand. Look at Iris, I just quit the scene a few days ago and on dcemu right after that there was a post of a new map for iris.

    In the end really nothing matters since neoflash team does not care to correct their mistakes. Have fun with the Wii.
