Thought you wrote something like a big modern graphics card, not something 2.5 years old. Well..one thing less to finish before the 24th then ;)

I guess you just need to code something less complex ;-)

Not faster, just more features, instead of relying on the 4 years old dx10 api. Meaning decent compute shader support (dx10 level support is next to useless) and the ability to plot pixels where I want, not limited to polygons. Sure it *could* be done using geometry shaders or cpu rendering, but that wasn't the point of it. I tend to use procedurals as a playground for new techniques etc.
No big deal anyway, I just expected to release it here, as the compo machine description indicated modern hardware, which I thought included 15 months old dx11.

As I won't take a network cable along, I guess it's OK to submit compo entries on USB stick?

You can also bring a wireless LAN if you're more comfortable with that.
@Adok: come on, don't be so half hearted, bring it on 5"1/4 floppy! ;)

@Adok: There will be wlan, and you can use it to upload productions. Just don't expect the wlan to be very fast.

DJefke: But I read somewhere there won't be WLAN...?
added on the 2010-12-25 15:56:36 by Adok Adok
The wlan will only be there, if we find the time to set it up. It will (as usual) be not as reliable as the cabled network.

But - even if the wlan fails - I'm sure you'll find someone who is willing to let you upload the entry from their computer.

wholeheartedly with you
