There are many kinds of binaries, win, linux, each 32 and 64bit... I'm currently on win-64 compiler. Screenshot in my opinion is very important even if it contains animations. And the original author can take a snapshot with a setup that guaranteed works.

This contest is good to promo Lazarus/FPC/Pascal. For non-programmers and someone who want to learn programming or computer game creation, can see the potentials of Lazarus and FPC.

For Pascal users and other language programmers, they can study and perhaps compare Lazarus/FPC with other languages.

I searched tutorials for game programming, but almost all of them were available in C++ or other languages. We should make use of this opportunity to collect a list of Pascal graphics/game source codes and tutorials.

So in my opinion:

Requirement to join in this contest:

- The program must be compiled using Lazarus or FPC
- The program must be free
- The source code must be released

Additional but not required:

- Screenshots
- Installation/compilation instruction
- Comments in the source code so other can study easily
- Tutorial written in pdf, doc, odt, txt
- Executable binary
- Users can submit more than 1 project

Source code is mandatory, precompiled binaries (for at least one of the major platforms) and screenshots are welcome additions.
function GetRandomNumber: integer; // xkcd.com
begin
  GetRandomNumber := 4; // chosen by fair dice roll. Guaranteed to be random.
end;

I agree will all of your suggestions.

I'm adding the screenshot of the clock 'relogio' by bylaardt that was missing. My project already had a screenshot.

Well, said that I'm waiting for your projects!

Hi again, I've added a new version of my project using BGRABitmap GL.

The code is in the contest repository. Here a screenshot.

I don't know how to use blur effect in BGRABitmap GL so I didn't add it.

Wow, glad to see we can use BGRABitmap to simulate biology lifeform.

I think it would be better not to blur them. Also if you can, give them border and name it with a cool name like Staphylococcus.

I'm pretty bussy now. :(


For this contest, I have decided to use Allegro.pas. Some years ago when I was looking for a good graphics engine, I found Allegro.pas. Unfortunately, the limited tutorials caused me not to try it. Today, I made an attempt to try it. The process didn't run too smoothly, but at least it's working now, I opened some of the examples and they run correctly.

This contest to me is a learning process of using Allegro.pas. I will record my progress of writing a very simple game using Allegro and write a tutorial later, hopefully it can be useful for others.

Allegro.pas and BGRABitmap are both great graphics library. I choose Allegro because its currently lack of tutorials.
Hurray!!!  :D

With my new found interest in OpenGL I've decided to enter the competition as well.  :)  I believe I have a really nice idea for the competition (its a secret for now  ;) ) and it should be fun to implement too. Plus others will definitely be able to learn from it.

Just to confirm, the first post in this thread mentions the deadline as 1 September. Is that still correct?

That's what I say, I need to upload a video or the binary.

Is that GMT? UTC? Or are some people more equal than others? %) :D

Just to make sure I have still 8 full months and not be stricken by not meeting the dead-line by a couple of hours...As usual...

Never thought using Allegro.pas is so easy. Here is the sneak peek of what I'm currently doing:
