Hm, Chris has been here, taking part in some general discussion, but still leaves us uncertain about the contest.

IIRC, the contest rules said that all winners are announced during a J1 keynote, which IMHO is the most significant part of the price due to the publicity it generates.

So, did that happen? Or is it still to come?

Chrome was talked about and demoed. SquareHeads wasn't mentioned but was played on stage and raved about it's performance. Super Elvis (puppygames, a uk company) was announced as the winner.

Yeah, but Puppygames is only of the contestants demoed!! Right?

And thats against the rules! IIRC *four* should get the honorable mention. Beware they are not fullfilling their part of the contract!

Imagine, 10000 people listening, hundreds of thousands watching the webcast, press reporting.

This generates hits en masse, lots of downloads, huge reputation. This is highly valuable! Worth much more than the gamespy SDK.

Doesn't work :-/

Tried everything on two machines (98se/2k) with 7 different browsers (2x IE, 2x FireFox, 2x Mozilla and Opera). Oh and yes, flash is installed, real and an up to date windows media player and yes I know that only these two IEs are supposed to work and I'd of course disabled all security settings - it didn't help.

IE just totally crashed my comp and I'm somewhat pissed off (I mean more than usual Tongue). Why can't we just get an old fashioned plain link to a goddamn video, which just works everywere? Because it's too easy? Thought so  Angry

Man... I really wanted to see it Sad

Deep breaths, Herc! Grin

I've just watched the video stream, and there was no demo, no screenshots, no big announcement.  Basically it was Chris saying "the winner of the competition was a game called Super Elvis developed by PuppyGames.  Congratulations to PuppyGames."

I guess that there'll be a big announcement of all the winners, screenshots, demos, URLs etc at some later date?

On FireBird on my first computer it just complained that Real wasn't present.  (Of course it wasn't present - it's a serious development box!  Real is a goddam nightmare to have installed on a box you use every day.)

So, I switched to a different machine.  Mozilla just produced an almost-blank page, and disabled the right mouse button so I couldn't find out what was going wrong.  Naturally, the window was created via JavaScript so it took some fiddling to get the page URL.

Now I switched to IE on the same box.  It worked, but it didn't use Real but WMP.  I know this, because it crashes like a bastard with obscure WMP error messages.  You know the ones - "click here for more details" -> "no more information is available for this error".

Well, eventually it worked, but why oh why can't anyone do streaming video correctly?

Well, after cfmdobbie's short summary I guess it wasn't worth the trouble.

edit:
>but why oh why can't anyone do streaming video correctly?

Why oh why does everyone think streamed video is a good thing anyways? It's about as nice as having trousers which can display a video on your arse Tongue

Don't think so. Thas was it.

"There was a contest, the winner is Cas, congrats; but now to something really cool .... "

Kind of disappointing, TBH.

The transcript of the session doesn't even mention the contest. Sad

Obviously is wasn't a big deal.....

Games, Games, Games

To dispel the argument that Java technology is slow and doesn't do graphics well, McNealy invited Chris Melissinos, Sun's Chief Gaming Officer, to demonstrate some of the cool games that run on Java technology. Melissinos demonstrated two high-speed games, both chock-full of terrific graphics. He said that thanks to the Java technology-based game community that's been built up in java.net, "there is no application being written in the game space, in C++, that Java cannot do."

But what about game machines, McNealy wondered. "Where is Sun in that space?" To answer the question, Kevin Bachus, President and Chief Operating Officer of Infinium Labs, Inc. (and significantly, one of the four co-creators of the Xbox at Microsoft) came onstage to introduce a very cool game machine developed by Inifinum that will go on sale in November. Called the Phantom game receiver, the machine will allow game players to enjoy PC based games in their living room, including games built using Java technology. "We're going to ship with the J2SE runtime." stated Bachus, noting that the Phantom will be the first game specific box to ship with the Java runtimes already installed. Through the Phantom Game Service, game players will have access to hundreds -- even thousands -- of games on demand, including great new Java technology-based games.

What's really sad about that is that it could be the phantom that throws egg in Sun's face. Statistically speaking, the phantom is a damn risky bet (look at how many failed consoles litter history Sad). So I'm a bit surprised Sun chose to have a person (CEO etc) on-stage for a console rather than for a game, but maybe they know something we don't.

The Phantom is a very suspicious bit of hardware. And they really, really should be talking to me about LWJGL.
