4th SFML Game Jam
« on: September 29, 2014, 03:24:46 am »
Greetings SFMLers,

As some of you may have noticed the 4th jam hasn't happened yet - even though it was supposed to have happened about a month ago. But do not worry, for this is not dead.  :D  Jebbs just got a little busy (and so did I) so the jam never happened. Jebbs has asked me to help him by taking over the lead on this so I want would like to start by stating where we are and what is planned.

Our current state is that we are in the process of moving to a new web host for the website. As soon as the transfer is complete I will be putting up the brand-new redesigned site that will feel better, and function better than the previous site. When that is complete I plan on setting up a test environment and simulating a few parts of the jam so you guys can ensure the site works smoothly when it comes time for the real jam. More will come on the website status in later posts.

I am planning on scheduling the4th jam for after the next ludum dare so that should put us about 3 months out around the begining of February 2015 (yes, 2015 :o). Of course the jam will run for 72 hours as before over a weekend (we can discuss later possibly having a 1 week long jam). I really want you guys to participate this time (unlike last time :P) so if you have any preference to which weekend that you can participate please post here.

Get ready for more posts coming soon about some more changes that are planned, for now I want to hear what dates work best for you.

-Zachariah

Sounds great ! I should say I'm disapointed the jam didn't happen last month but the truth is I couldn't have participated to it. Plus if the website is on track for a better user experience and everything, that's great :)

Since I guess the intent of this thread was lost in all the extra information... I want you guys to tell me what weekend would be best for you to participate in the jam so I can schedule it and begin promoting it.

Since I guess it might be a bit hard to check your calender and post the dates you like, I took the liberty to add a poll to the thread so you can vote for a weekend.

The result will be the weekend chosen to run the 4th SFML Game Jam.  :D

Valentine's Day is a no-go for me, my wife would not forgive me ;)

I voted for the first one by flipping a coin but the last one is equally good for me.

Like eXpl01t3r; I guess, I was just wondering if the jam still happens this weekend ?

lol I don't have the programming speed or recording programs to join. XD  That said it mostly has to do with programming speed.  Will try to take part next time though and maybe this time if I don't get networking homework hell dropped on me. :(
I have many ideas but need the help of others to find way to make use of them.

Since neither Jebbs nor zsbzsb have commented so far, I guess there are two options left:
  • We do it later
  • I setup something simple
How should we proceed? ;D
