Best Game: Duplo6
Best Clock: pocket watch
Best Effect: movingdots

Naturally, I must think that my clock entry is 'best'   :D   but I don't think that I should be allowed to cast that vote so 'SteamPunk' should get it.

Taking account of all the 'issues' I encountered, (mostly due to my system constraints) my single Poll vote still goes to Duplo6.

duplo6_by_bylaardt
- I liked it very much, but sometimes the number 5 does not paint correctly;
- I missed a message that I have to pass because I do not have a matching piece;
about message, i use diferent sounds when you play and when not. But by the contest link "toc.wav" are missing.
you can find it on https://github.com/bylaardt/duplo6
use right click menu to turn sounds on/of.
If you are compiling then be sure you are using the bgrabitmap-9.5( or above? )

Naturally, I must think that my clock entry is 'best'   :D   but I don't think that I should be allowed to cast that vote so 'SteamPunk' should get it.
It's the best, and my inspiration to make steampunk.

By category:
Best Game: Sudoku (sorry, but i love board games and puzzles) 
Best Clock: pocket watch (Nothing new that could improve my skills in Relogio ou StemPunkClock ;) )
Best Effect: movingdots
Best Original Idea: FuriousPaladin
Best inspiration to create a new component: glslideshow

PS: I have provided "relogio" with the intention of having a start for this contest. It surprise me have a category just for watches.

Made one final set of changes to the files from Handoko's glSlideShow, if anyone reading this is one of the people who've been downloading them. Details and a new zip file are in my original post, like before.

Thanks J-G for your information, but I have no idea and no solution for this..
@Lulu  -  I have now found a solution  -  well at least I now show a frame rate which is 'sensible' - anything between 70+ and 120 - didn't test too long - and I have been able to 'play' Educ'Race - finding oil-slicks and knocking motor-cyclists off the track  :D   If I were a gamer I might actually like it :)

This is after updating my video driver to handle Open GL and finally being able to install 'Blender'  - only took me a week  %) (not that I can really use it yet!).

I thought that that might also solve the issues I have with Sudoku but sadly not - that still just displays what I assume is a 'splash' screen after complaining that it can't find 'tile.png'.

Furious Paladin still complains that I don't have allegro-5.2.dll even though that is in the .exe folder, and Star Field Shooter complains about xinput1_3.dll.

On which Windows?  Win7 32-bit or Win7 64-bit? I'll try get myself a Win7 machine for testing.

Since updating my video driver I can now see the images :)  -  result.

Because I am still using BGRABitmap < 9.5 I can't re-compile the latest version but at least I can now appreciate what the program does AND I can confirm that the original program does handle 8 bit  (B & W) .JPG images.

The source code will use either \ or / for data path depending on OS during compilation. So i don't know how you are trying it. Even if it was using | symbol, wouldn't the check be made during compilation too?

There is a data folder, correct?

Try movingdotsgl it should work now with your drivers updated.

xinput is DirectX, you need to install this:
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=35

allegro should be of the same bitness of the compiled exe. if the exe is 32 bit the dll should be 32 bit. and must be of the same version. try running it from the command line to see if anything else is missing.

there is a data folder, and there is a file called tile.png, just check that.

The poll:
Currently we have 3 projects competing with 4 votes each!

I have installed that - after some Micky$oft hassle - I don't want to be offered all kinds of MS rubbish  >:D >:D  -  fortunately I'm savvey enough to find the boxes to un-tick !!   but now it gives me an error loading ZenGL :(   so I'll give that best.

No joy from the command line. I have to assume that the version (bitness) of the .dll supplied is the same as the .exe

There is now ... and it is populated with the 5 necessary files ...  so I can run Sudoku - it's a pity I can't play it :D
