Title: CLASSIC COMP: Outrun Europa Will Not Be Joining Us This Evening
Post by: Sledge on May 17, 2007
Original here (http://www.flashtro.com/page.php?id=81), remake attached! (The music is a bit quiet. If I get time to fix that before the deadline then I will... gotta sleep then work now!)

Edit: Oh, the zip is too big, I see. It'll be up once my ISP stops screwing around with its FTP service.

Edit: JOY! (http://www.sledgenet.dsl.pipex.com/downloads/OEWNBJUTE.zip)

That looks like a hell of a lot of work right there, especially as you even had to re-make the music too!
You just earned a lot of respect off me at least. I hope this does well in the voting, you deserve it.

Can I just make one last comment?

I think you've out-grown Blitz now.. If you used something that made smaller exes you would definately have no trouble in releasing small intros , webtros , cracktros etc into the demo sccen and people would like them.

Hi Sledge, Glad you got the hosting sorted out, I had no end of problems grabbing that before.
Anyway, great conversion and thanks for supporting the comp!

Cheers!

Jim

Thanks chaps -- it's a pleasure to get involved in the compo. I've had very little free time lately, but the upside of that is there are now a ton of new entries to check out. Which is what I'm orf to do now!

@Shockwave: I'm open to suggestions -- B3D exe's certainly are biggies but it's a phenomenally lovely language. Max and Cobra seem like logical steps for similarly rapid development with smaller exe sizes. Any other notable 'solutions' (man I hate that word)?

for small 2d stuff possible freebasic and tinyptc as its free and is great for making a leap into c++/gdi and for 3d freebasic/opengl.

but everyone has there own tasts so go with whatever your comfortable with.
