*bump*

So, no really significant drop of entries with the dev'06 specs.

Face "Could this mean that there's no harm in allowing megarom again for dev'07?"
BA-team "and some more RAM, f00l"
Murdoch "and more Running Naked in a Field of Flowers "
Hannibal "that all would make my plan come together"

Funny to see this thread beeing bumped. I was thinking about the dev'07 specs this morning.

Considering the number of entries and the quality. I see no real indication that the RAM/ROM will influence the number of finished entries.

Titles like The Cure and UU probably made developers a little over-excited. That is according to me the real reason (time) behind most of the unfinished entries.

Also I don't see any unfair competition between the 48kb and 128 kb ROMs

I'd would be more than content with the current specs for MSXdev'07.
And additional extra RAM..... I'm OK with that too.

As in each edition of MSXdev there were un-announced entries, I think there is no way to estimate the drop-rate. In each edition there must have been people planning to enter the contest with un-announced games and not making it (in time). In MSXdev'05 there were several "cancelled for MSXdev'04"-entries. With same (or higher) specs next year, perhaps we'll see some of the games cancelled this year in the '07 edition.

The projects we know were cancelled were all - as far as I know - not cancelled because of specs, but because lack of time/motivation.

See:
TT-Virus - cancelled due to lack of time.
LUX and Dash - cancelled due to lack of time
<Title: Unknown> - Cancelled due to lack of time / not intending to do another deadline-hackjob but delivering a really polished game this time.
Cyberware - cancelled due to hardware problems (and as the came has been first announced in 1994, it not making it this year would not have been a 'specs-thing' either)

One could argue that lower specs means less development time, though ;)

Speedjet Racers is being finished right now but still need some gfx work. It is expected to be released soon (of course, out of MSxdev'06 as we didn't make it in time).

About '07 specs... Wolf_, what about 32kb rom 16kb ram? WinkWink

Just kiddin', eeehum, I better start Running Naked in a Field of Flowers...

Let's close definitely the MSXdev'06 contest with the final results and then we can start wondering about the specs Wink
