Welcome one and all to the annual Betting Challenge!

To enter you must make a bet on an exact date and time for which you think the contest results will be published!

An amazing prize is at stake here: everyone who has entered must review the winner's contest entry and explain why they should have won the Grand Prize instead of the actual winner!

All is fun and games and no shade is intended towards whoever will actually win the Grand Prize.

So come and place your bets now!

In regards to the question about UTC:

Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) is the basis for civil time in many places worldwide. Many timekeeping devices use this 24-hour time standard, which is determined using highly precise atomic clocks.
http://www.timeanddate.com/time/aboututc.html

It also seems that UTC is the same as GMT. Perhaps you should state a standard time format for the thread?

Note: Aren't some people also on daylight savings at the moment?

I was mostly joking about what UTC is. When the time comes I'll convert all the time zones to see who is closest, so it's alright not to have a standard time format. Makes it easier for the contestants. ^_^

Seems fair. It also seems that most people are going for GMT? Maybe you could state it as an recommendation in stead of a requirement.

EDIT: My game can be found here on the forums if you want to include the game links so long: http://forums.rpgmakerweb.com/index.php?/topic/30057-a-deadly-understanding/

Not that I'm saying I'm going to win, but then the links are up for people who are looking for games to play.

I'm gonna take a flier on another technical issue or a last-minute need to replay something.

So, I'll guess September 12th @ 8am GMT.

Hoping it comes earlier, though!!

Have spent too much time hammering out with a friend just how to make a reoccurring enemy that permanently learns skills you use against her.
I know what I want in a loose sense. Maybe I should just make a post asking for opinions and suggestions.
Shoot Enemy Off-Screen, Run RPG Maker Game as a Web Server, & Thai Keyboard | RPG Maker News #109

Some people have too strong of an opinion about what maker is the best, I've seen discussions like:
- I prefer VXAce because I like the style of the RTP better than the older releases
- You're worse than Hitler
My number one take away from this game jam is to make small games that are as polished and bug free as possible. Far less dev time, and if the game flops, it matters less because my time investment is much lower. Also, whatever ambitions I have... aim for about 10% of them. They are clearly too high, and will involve stuff that likely won't matter.
