GSoC applications accepted! Android and AI

Hello everybody,
we can finally announce the selected applications from the Google Summer of Code 2011 program. We only had two slots so we had to discard many many really good applications; hopefully next year we will get more slots and more people will be able to participate!

Without further ado, let me present you

Richard "Xeli" Deurwaarder, mentored by nemo, will take care of the Android port
David "dayoung" Young, mentored by unC0Rr, will teach AI how to use the weapons

and they will soon™ write a full introduction on this blog as well as keep us updated with their progress, asking for community feedback! Quoting nemo here, "no pressure or anything, but success of our future participation is all on you"

Finally we want to formward our personal thank you to all the students that participated: without your contribution we could never have such a positive feeback! I hope you all had a great time in the channel and remember that you are welcome to stay with our community and to contribute to the project!

Good luck and let's hope for a positive and enriching summer!

GSoC reminder - 1 day left for applications

Dear students willing to apply,
please do so now! You have less than 24 hours to submit you application duly filled; you'll have some time later on this week to improve it and add sections, but make sure to use your slot.
Unfortunately there cannot be any deadline extension; the application must be compiled at Google-Melange portal, the ones posted in the forum are not valide for a successful submission.

Update: 67 applications total! thank you to all paricipants


GSoC tips, scoring explanation and more

We're receiving a tremendous number of applications, more than we actually expected! We also have had quite a number of bugs fixed thanks to the goodwill of students (submitting patches was not a requirement, but will be certainly taken into account).

So this already something really positive already! I can't wait for when students will merge their work in the codebase Smile

If you are interested in submitting an application, open this page http://www.google-melange.com/gsoc/org/google/gsoc2011/hedgewars and hit apply; it won't take more than a few minutes. Remember that only this link is valid, and that applications submitted to our forum are only for information purpose or for discussion.

If you are interested in more than one idea remember to submit multiple applications. Pay particular attention to section 4, it must be duly filled and be prepared to integrate or modify it with our comments.

Hedgewars is going to be Closed Source

Dear all,

Update: Yes it's an april fool :)

all Hedgewars source code has been acquired by a company named Lirpa Sloof. All the copyrights will go to the acquirer: they will continue development and decide a new business model for this game, making periodic releases and perhaps inserting ads while in game.

All the process is under strict NDA and unfortunately noone is allowed to give any further detail about this acquisition; moreover developers have signed effective-immediately contract that forbids to re-licence the current sources, as well as users to download and compile the game.

I'm sure the new company controlling development will take care of the current userbase and will lead this game under a new shining direction, even if sources won't be available any more.

GSoC 2011 - Some stats and deadlines

Hello everyone,
participation from students willing to take part in the Google Summer of Code has been really positive and admittedly more than we expected! We also had some bugs fixed by some of them, so let me spend a second to thank them for their work (as well as all other casual contributors that make this game great).

Now let's get down to business, the "interim period" in which students approach interesting projects and know the developers has come to an end; the application period opens and students can begin submitting their work statements until April, 8th.

I strongly encourage students *not* to submit a single application, but to prepare several fallbacks (even with a project that is not Hedgewars), as demand for certain topics is high and not all requests may be served. I've added a FAQ regarding how you can get bonus points when you write an application. At any rate, everything must be submitted within April, 8th
