Let's Make A Mess!

Post by DumpOnIt » Fri Oct 19, 2012 2:31 am

Hey all!
I thought of a game that might be fun!

I don't know the best way of doing it yet, but this is what I have so far:

The Rules Are Simple:
  1. Download the Love file.
  2. Look at what's already in the file.
  3. Think of an interactive demo thing you want to add.
  4. Estimate the amount of time it would take to add that feature. (within 3 hours)
  5. Give yourself a little bit less time than you need and make a post saying something like,
    Give me x hours and y minutes with that thing!
  6. Wait until the user above you has uploaded their modified version, gave up, or ran out of time
  7. Download their new version and add your feature!
  8. Write to the CHANGELOG.txt!
  9. Before your time runs out, attach your Love file and be sure to say something along the lines of
    here you go
  10. If you need an extra fifteen minutes, just say so! But you only get fifteen!
  11. If you run out of time, just wait 3 turns or 12 hours before requesting to add something again.
About changing Stuff
Feel free to change anything, remembering the following:
  • Make sure people can easily add to the project without even looking at your code by placing it in tables starting with yourname then dot then whatever
  • Don't delete other people's features! Their stuff shouldn't be affecting anything else!
  • You can change other people's things to fit yours in, spatially (if there isn't enough room on the screen, remove instances of something)
  • Make a personal folder with your name in lua/ for your code or image/ with your images, etc
  • Please suggest some rules if I'm missing something or it's not clear!

This sounds fun! Why not just make a git repo, and accept all pull requests that are valid?

That'd make the whole process a lot easier.

Cool but, should we do this on a chatting client?

That makes sense :P Unfortunately, I'm not that experienced with version control and preventing things from going crazy. Does anyone want to volunteer?

You do! Take this opportunity to get out of your comfort zone and learn revision control. You should start here.

Like IRC?

We should all meet on irc.oftc.net in the #love channel!

I agree, this would be the perfect opportunity for you to learn revision control :)

Why not engage the chat in the Github wiki?
Lua is not an acronym.
