I don't think I will be coding for this, I'm busy with my own projects but I'm always happy to look at other peoples work.
[*] You must be impartial. For example, being a judge means that neither you or your relatives can then submit entries.
I don't know anyone here personaly and I feel I'm on good terms with anyone who enters.
[*] You will be required to decide the theme of the challenge. Guidelines will be provided for this.
Coming up with a theme is always the hard part, I'll have to look at the past competitions and see what people really want or perhaps others could elaborate here. It also depends on the time frame. I believe 9 days is good and not too long starting on a friday at 11:59pm.
[*] You will be required to update the rules of the challenge, from what they were previously. Guidelines will be provided for this.
The previous rules seemed fine to me, personally I'd rather judge on the finished product and not so much on how many lines of code there are. A good programmer knows their tools well and which ones to use at a certain time.
[*] You will be required to review the submitted entries, and be able to discuss with other judges fairly about their relative merits, and be able to come to an amicable agreement on a winner.
If there are other judges, then sure.
[*] You will be required to test the entries personally, so must have access to computer system(s) ...
I run vista x64, linux mint 5 x64 (ubuntu 8.04 based), and mac os X leopard 10.5 . All computer should be able to run anything you throw at it and if they don't then it's the games fault
. PC (linux/win) intel Q6600, 4gb of ram, 8800GT; Mac Pro 2x xeon dual core 2.0ghz, 4gb ram, ati radeon 1900xtx.
The only requirements I would impose is that the games would work on 64bit operating system and any libraries that were used be compiled for the platforms with the exception of linux( it would just have to be in the ubuntu repository).
[*] You must be able and willing to fill this role throughout January 2009. But it's generally not a demanding role.
this speaks for itself if you want to be a judge
