Wednesday Workshop #087 : The Smiley Challenge
Time until Deadline

Week : 14 February 2007
The Reason : Suggested by Skypenguin

The Challenge : This week, use the site's collection of smilies in some kind of game.

Extra Info
You may use as few or as many of the smilies as you want to.
Obviously, you can also include other art, too!
The whole pack of smilies is available here


Weekly Rules/How to Enter
You have until Tuesday Night/Wednesday Morning 00:00 BST to submit your levels. ^ See Deadline Link! ^

Wed.Workshop is at SoCoder.co.nr. If you can read this, you're probably already there!

Stick your entry underneath this post, leaving a link to your exe or the source of your game, or whatever. (I'll get round to allowing uploads sometime, honest!)

If you can't figure it out, or have a really rubbish server, send it to Jayenkai@Gmail.com and I'll stick it straight onto the SoCoder (Official Wed.Workshop) site.

Entries will be collected during the week, and entered into next week's voting. (If there are any entries..)
All entries will be entered into voting which will take place if there's more than one entry..

Please try to keep all entries within small file sizes. 2Mb is the average maximum for files.
Additional Rules are available at the SoCoder (Official Wed.Workshop) site, under the list of previous workshops.


Last Week's Games
Only I entered this workshop, but which is better.. A Speedboat, or a Snake?
There's only one way to find out!

Vote!!
Comment on the entries, and don't forget to leave votes.
The game with the highest rating at the end of the week is declared the winner.

|moan| Since all of the smilies were converted from GIF to PNG, they have all been squeezed into the same size of picture, so they are either in pictures larger than they are, or are distorted (in the case of SHRUG and YEAY). |moan|

Have they?
*checks*

Sorry, I didn't notice! Irfanview usually does a better conversion job...
..
... Aaah, I left the Advanced Options on. No idea what I must've been doing before, to leave "Squisho" mode on!

File fixed

Thank you, Jay.

Too bad I just decided to use my Shroom Smilies, so found the master document in my files...

Do we have to use the smilies on this site? They're so small, I want to make my own, bigger smilies.

They're not that small if you use 640x480 screen resolution like me...

You have to use the smilies from the site.
Feel free to resize them, if you absolutely need to.

Well, I guess all of those words apply to what we define 'smilies' as. Our 'smilies' are not really 'smilies' at all. They are a mixture of all that.

shroom_monk
Eh? It's 640x480 screen resolution. I'm not sure what's causing that...

|edit| But the background colour is blue... |edit|

|edit| Anyone else had this problem? |edit|

Magicman, maybe you need a better graphics card.

magicman

Noooo - my ww entry is officially mucked up - and I don't think I will enter now because i've lost the original file. So GO SHROOM - I take back my comment from earlier.

Time to close this week's workshop.
The new one's open, so go fiddle with that.

I'll upload Shroom's entry as soon as I've installed an FTP client!
