Top Secret Task

edited December 2013 in Competition Posts: 103

Welcome agents. Your mission if you choose to accept it is to write a program on the subject of spying. It can be ANYTHING. The judges will be helpful volunteers from the Codea community. Rules You say? There are no rules!
Well apart from stealing ideas but then again, this is a spying program task so I suppose it could be tolerated...
Post your programs in this discussion. If you would like to judge then post your name saying that you would like to be a judge!
Remember, it's dangerous to go alone, take this.

    No rules? Then I choose my hacker program. Its on Codea Community.

  • @TheRogueBatcher, interesting idea, the prizes, I guess, are top secret fame and intel? xp

    bow serious, how much time do we get to finish this?

  • edited December 2013 Posts: 103

    You get a 168 hours (a week)

  • The competition only starts when I have at least 3 judges

  • I guess judges can't enter the competition? xd well i could be a judge if you can't find 3 other volunteers

    This will make good use of my inspector app. It'll sandbox any project and let you look at all read/right calls and http requests. Make sure no one is grabbing info that they shouldnt be.

    Too lazy to make a new project and too busy working on my Cook-Off project...

    I do have a REALLY good encryption program though, I'll put it on CC, it's called AlphaCoSi.

    Warning: WIP but works pretty good

    @TheRogueBatcher i wont compete but watch the posts. So if you need a judge, i can do it.

  • I'll see if I can fit in the time to enter

    @TheRogueBatcher I won't be joining the competition because I'm busy working on my builder game, but I will if you need it judge as I'm assuming that won't take too long.

    @Stevon8ter @Jmv38 @Luatee
    I Would love it if you would be judges!
    If you cant for some reason though then there's no pressure
    Respond if you will do it or not

    Ok for me but there is a condition: your games will have to run on ipad 1... Confirm if this is an acceptable condition or not before puting me in the jury.

    @Jmv38 Curious, What can the Ipad 1 not support?

    Memory is quite limited. Games will a lot of big images or poor memory cleanup will crash codea.

  • @TheRogueBatcher it's ok for me, i don't have alot of time to make a program for this myself + don't really have an idea, so you could put me in the jury

    How is this scored?

  • I never have time to code, but an idea that's been bouncing around in my head on this type of game (and feel free to steal it), is some kind of stealth mission type game where you have missions like, sneak in and kill someone, or sneak in and steal something, or sneak in and plant a bug etc.

    Then the player gets missions from some communal anonymous message board. Then plot wise, try and make it really ambiguous as to whether you are working for the good guys or the bad guys (or both). And eventually allow player submitted missions, so you could outsource the actual hard work to other players and take a cut etc.

    Maybe even get to the point where some missions are actually hunting down other players/finding evidence of their attacks, stuff like that...

  • @spacemonkey Good Idea!
    @CodeaNoob It doesn't really have a proper scoring system. It's just we each give a nomination for the project we thought were the best. Due to we are only 3 judges, we will be giving 2 nominations.

    @TheRogueBatcher could you write who will eventually be the judges? It is not clear to me. Then we (the judges) should have a discussion on the criteria for ranking the submitted code, and publish these criteria. I think we should rank all submissions, or at least the 3 or 5 top ones, not only choose the "best" one. This would be more rewarding for each participant.

  • The Judges So Far Are :

    Well I don't think anybody is actually participating in the competition

    You haven't kickstarted the event! No electric start on these things ;)

  • edited January 2014 Posts: 835

    I've already finished my entry! I've just been waiting for an update

    My WAAAAY earlier post

  • @CodeaNoob, if you've finished your entry then why haven't you posted it here yet?

  • Posts: 2,161

    Surely everyone's working on their projects in secret. Wasn't that the point?!

  • Not really... For example, CodeaNoob finished his but hasn't posted it.

  • Guys don't forget that TOMMOROW the competition ends! Don't forget to post your programs here!

  • Posts: 835

    Just wondering, what time zone is the competition based in?

    With one competitor and 3 judges, the decision is going to be easy! Lol!

  • Posts: 577

    I'm still in!

  • Posts: 1,595

    @Jmv38 2 now;) I think we should take a count of who is in before judging begins!

  • Posts: 1,976

    Can I enter AlphaCoSi?

    I didn't hear back on whether I could use an older project.

    Posts: 3,297

    I guess it is ok, as long as you keep this info secret. Just change the name, so everyone will be fooled.

  • Posts: 1,976

    @Jmv38 Oh hey look, I worked hard and made a new project for this contest that's definitely not a copy of my other project that's just renamed. Search for SiCoAlpha on CC.

    My entry is on my thread "50 Line Challenge" and its called "Sniper Rifle Scope Simulator" (please dont bump the thread unless you have an entry)

    I don't know the time zone the competition, but the second last day was yesterday, and @Sky entered 20 minutes before me

    Hello competitors! I recall you that the project has to run on ipad1, and i cant have CC work properly on ipad1. Can you post a link to you code in CC (in this case i can manage to get it), or post it in the forum? Thanks.

    Here it is!

    function setup()
        Clip = 4
        ClipMax = 4
        Extra = 16
        print("Sniper Rifle Scope\n"..Clip.." / "..Extra)
        function draw()
            fill(255, 255, 255, 0)
            stroke(0, 0, 0, 255)
            fill(255, 255, 255, 255)
            text("Zoom: \n    "..Zoom,60,60)
            if Clip <= 0 then
            Clip = 4
            Extra = Extra - ClipMax
            if Extra < 2 then
            fill(255, 0, 0, 255)
            text("LOW AMMO",WIDTH/2,500)
            function touched(touch)
            if touch.state == ENDED then
            Clip = Clip - 1
            print(Clip.." / "..Extra)
            sound(SOUND_HIT, 32786)
            if Extra < 0 then
            Clip = 4
            Extra = 16

    Here mine is:

    If @CodeaNoob's project doesn't support iPad 1, do I win? :P

  • Posts: 1,595

    @SkyTheCoder haha no I'll judge @CodeaNoob's :))

  • Posts: 1,595

    @CodeaNoob I'm pressing fire but no bullets are coming out of my iPad!
