Hi ! A coding contest with contrainst, cool
I personnaly made some optimizing contest on ARM processor (GBA cpu) wich were funny. We made three contest, all uses GBA emulator as cool platform (no GBA specific, just write pixel on a memory buffer). We made three contest:
1) the faster flat polygon routine on ARM (asm was used)
2) The smalled executable of a spinning 3d flat cube (very fun, kind of "boot sector" atari
3) optimize to the death a public JPEG GBA depacker (35kb of cpp source code only). Only use C/C++ (no ASM allowed for that contest)
One day I'll create a website about these challenge, cool be very cool. Unfortunatly I guess I probably never had time to do it
Btw, you spoke about simon-sunnyboy GFA compiler? What's this exactly? I'm quite interested. By old days, I made a complete GFA compiler "IDE" using a cool gui interface. I never spread it (exept to OVR). Maybe someone has that tool? I don't find it anymore on my disks...
