QBCPC 2004/2005 Update - Two (2) brand-new inspiration files added!

In this very special QB event by Adigun himself, a couple of new pinball games are being introduced to help you create your best QB project and win big!! ^_- !

In this very special QB gala called the “QuickBASIC Caliber Programming Compo 2004/2005”, two (2) brand-new and excellent inspiration pinball games have just been added to inspire you to create your *very best* QB game in my compo and win, win, WIN!! The two of them are:

• Tsunami
• Solar System

Please don’t miss them, plus, even more encouragements and other stuff await you as well as this compo marches right on! ^_- !

Originally, the “QuickBASIC Caliber Programming Compo” has first been introduced on the internet in December 2002 as a Christmas present to the QB45/QB71 community. What made it stand right tall and proud from at least many of the other QB compos was that in this one, it had *plenty* of inspiration files (be it game, graphics demo, or otherwise!) — especially those fresh direct from Japan, too — to prepare and inspire you to create your VERY HOTTEST QB programming project and win real big!!! ^_^ !

On my first compo entitled the “QuickBASIC Caliber Programming Compo - Winter 2003”, it was cancelled due to the fact that it has ABSOLUTELY NO entries before the deadline of April 1, 2003. :(

Then, on my second compo, the “QuickBASIC Caliber Programming Compo - Summer & Autumn 2003”, it had even more inspiration files from Japan (including the VERY newest ones as well!), plus, a new group of categories were introduced entitled “Customized Categories”. Those were special categories that were hand-selected from the QB45/QB71 community out of my six genres that I have picked for one of my own poll-based threads in the QBasicNews.com forums. The three genres with the highest percentages were selected as these very kinds of categories. Overall, this compo was a mild success, but, it is also much better than my last one, really! ;*) !

And now, on this current compo called the “QuickBASIC Caliber Programming Compo 2004/2005”, it continues the original grand and timely tradition more than ever, but from this gala on, *with* some major changes and revisions to my Official Entry Rules (that were made during July 2004) that further enhanced more positive originality than ever before!! For starters, I have shattered the SO MANY needless rule-based limitations from my first two compos that apparently offended a lot of QB programmers. Secondly, I have NOW allowed even more new stuff that were previously unallowed from my last two compos (i.e. elves, faeries, leprechauns, and pixies, for example!)!! ^_^ !! With all of these noticable and dead-serious changes and more, this compo is shaping up big-time to be the absolute hottest QB compo of 2004, I can promise you that!

And, you can find the positive-originality filled “QuickBASIC Caliber Programming Compo 2004/2005” and my newest and NEVER-BEFORE-DISCOVERED original categories and more beginning at http://dhost.hopto.org/aapproj/qbcpc/.

Be seeing you there at this unforgettable QB programming event!!! ;*) !!
