Tema: MRC
Etiquetas: Challenges

Nyyrikki, the developer of the Brainfuck entry to the Snowfall challenge and the Z80/R800 emulator for MSX likes to take an unexpected approach. For the MRC Bounce Challenge he decided not to code an entry in ASM, Pascal, C, Brainfuck or BASIC. It does bounce however. How? Nyyrikki's Bounce entry is a plain VT-52 textfile optimized for MSX1, WIDTH 40 with diskdrive. You can get it right here.

In the MRC Bounce Challenge both experienced and novice MSX developers can show how fun (and easy) it can be to develop for MSX. By joining the competition you can win one or more prizes which we will soon announce. As we will also pick one or two winners randomly, there are more than enough reasons to join. Show the MSX community your skills! Entries to the bounce challenge can be sent to and have to be sent before October 11th, 23:59 CET. This means you still have about a month left to complete your entries. Good luck!

Really... I'd never thought of this approach.

:-) I think, that 50% of MSX users have not even noticed, that they have CON-device and 50% of the rest have not ever used it for anything usefull. :-)

Weird solutions for weird people: ~NYYRIKKI Smile

I doubt this entry being the useful part, but it's a lot of fun seeing something like this. Pity there's no sufficient VT-52 support for music, as it would complete the whole demo.

No, but at least I was quite a happy when I noticed, that I can use COPY "INFO.TXT" TO "CON" to read documentation while being in BASIC. Smile
