Programming Challenge Competition

Recommended Posts

I actually found this to be a great challenge.

I could not figure out the recursive function :(

 

I tried a little brute force, but that was not going to get the job done.  (could work with dumb luck)

 

I have another project that needs recursion and it is PISSING ME OFF!  LOL

 

I currently -- partially just look ahead a little, enough to test.  But I don't see this working as it propagates.

I have a partial recursive algorithm...  But then I moved to iterative / state machine...  That's where I was confused with portals...  I don't know if you can recurse really well in BASIC b/c can't pass variables (no custom functions)

shame it did not receive any submissions.

 

would be good to see this have relaunch - 

 

perhaps with changes mentioned already by others 

 

perhaps you could look at making it multi machine instead of just TI based ??

 

perhaps you could look at 2 options of the challenge 1) being as you described and the other 2) as a game creation thing

 

perhaps increase the time for submissions people generally very busy with real life stuff so a longer contest timeframe may be more positive ?

 

anyway good luck with it hopefully we see it back in the future one day ??
