Workshop Monthly #011 : Olympics
Time until Deadline

Month : 23 July 2008 to 20 August 2008
The Reason : It's time for the Olympic Games! Woot!


The Challenge : Make an Olympic game..
You don't have to do the whole kit and kaboodle..
Do one or two standard events, or a completely insane event.. Or whatever!
Make stuff up!

There's a couple of nice images here, including all those little event icons..

Standard Rules
The rules are pretty much the same as a standard workshop, except you have a bit longer!
This workshop closes on August 20th, 00:00 GMT.
(That's so that we can start a fresh one on a Wednesday!)

Entries should be posted as Showcases, then noted in the forum below.

I was thinking about your current competition after I ran across this

sports.yahoo.com/olympics/beijing/countries

and wondered how to get the icons for use in the competition.

Can it be done?

You mean the flags? You could probably use some Firefox plugin to download them all, but I think Yahoo owns the copyright for them.

You could download the Famfamfam flag icons - they're free to use, though not as pretty as those spherical flag buttons.

If you have FireFox and go to Tools/Page Info on the Media tab you'll see that those round button like images are actually all one image... you'd have to figure out which is which though

The famfam codes are good but are too small

Bah, there's not much to this game.

I was aiming for more, but very very very very quickly ran out of ideas!

Controls
Pole Vault
Waggle cursors left+right to build speed.

Archery
Hold Z/X to aim, then let go.

And that's your lot!

The Only thing I get is a menu

Hit Z / X, didn't get round to adding spacebar to the menu yet!

Shame, really.. It's only about 0.5% of what I initially expected it to be...
