Sang 30 Day Coding Comp # 2
PSP News and Lik
Sang are proud to announce the 2nd PSP 30 Day Coding Competition.
Time to announce the Winner
The judging is made up from 5 Judges, 3 are Coders (Inc Fanjita), Me Wraggster
and one Wild card judge, the judging gives marks out of 10 and they are
added up, then the winner is chosen.
Heres what our Special Guest Judge Fanjita said about the releases
OK, here goes. I've based my judgements on the following criteria, mainly:
completeness and presentation
A great achievement by McZonk, this has come along a long way since the
early alpha release that I saw.
This sets the standard for future 3D FPS homebrew for the PSP.
Overall score: 8
A nice faithful asteroids clone, and the addition of a back-story helped
with the professional appearance.
My only gripe was that there didn't seem to be a lot of difference from
the previous version.
Overall score: 7
A fun, cartoony port with great presentation and a novel approach to platforming.
I found it difficult to get to grips with the controls, though.
Overall score: 6
I've always had a soft spot for small tech demos, and this is a great little
demo of realistic cloth simulation. It's effects like this that add the
finishing touch to professional games.
Overall score: 5
A nicely polished port of this fun shooter. With the ability to add new
mods, this should have lasting appeal.
Overall score: 7
An update of the existing Duck Shoot LUA game, I enjoyed the missile-command
style of play. The addition of downloadable cheats over wifi was a cool
Overall score: 6
This wasn't really my kind of game, but I can see how it would appeal to
fans of the genre. The library has obviously been well put together, and
there's potential for some great games to come from this in the future.
Overall score: 7
A very nice achievement considering that this is original code and not
a port. There are some small visual glitches that give away the beta status,
but overall there's enormous potential in this game. Support for v2.0 is
also a bonus.
Overall score: 9
At first glance, this is "yet another shell", but it becomes
obvious that it's an extremely-well put together one. The skins are slick,
the function is broad and well-implemented, and the effortless EBOOT launcher
/ HOME button handler hides some hard-core code.
Overall score: 9

The Prize to the winner is a Datel
4gb Hard Drive
The X2 Battery is a direct replacement for your PSP's rechargeable battery,
but offers double the capacity of the standard model. Now bundled with a
4GB HDD, it gives you plenty of space for your saves and files on the go.
The 4GB HD uses ultra-reliable Micro-Drive technology. The HD interfaces
with the PSP by means of a flexible Memory Stick adapter which is
plugged into the Memory Stick slot on the PSP.
Once connected, the body of the HD attaches snugly to the back of the PSP
by means of two location posts which slot into corresponding holes on the
back of the PSP. When used in conjunction with the X-2 double capacity battery
the 4GB HD forms an ergonomic extension to the PSP which follows the neat
lines of the handheld, fitting snugly in your palms. Once connected, you
use the 4GB HD just as you would a normal Memory Stick; you can playback
video, MP3s, movies and images and save from inside your PSP games.
Technical Note: If you are experiencing a video-lag or out-of-sync problem,
please update your PSP's Firmware. This problem doesn't occur with PSP Firmware
2.00 or above.
Good Luck :)
