CodeCraft #1 Results
Yeeaah! CodeCraft and the voting are over, and it was a great success:
33 entries, respectively 24 and 9 entries for the 1Kb and 4Kb categories!
The standard of quality was very high, and i strongly recommend you
to download all entries. You can also have a look
at the snapshot of my desktop with some entries below.
You'll see the diversity in the entries, ranging from system tools to games,
with a lot of demos and inutilities. You'll also see how hard was the
voting, with only three places to fill when all productions have something
that makes them so different and attractive.
15 contributors, some of them with up to 5 entries!
39 votes, thus having an amount of 234 points to sum up!
Ok, ok... Drum rolls, applauses, here they come... :)
...And The Winners Are...
1024 bytes Results
ItsDemoTime by Armoric/Arm's Tech (28 points)
FractalSpinZoom by PT/DFI (16 points)
MultiBoing by Pervect/Topix (13 points)
Followed by pArAnOId (12); BitStretcher (9); Othello and Wimpory (5);
rays and raytracer (4); preview and tun1k (3);
acorns, beatz, sweeper and wimplife (2); logo and emu16 (1).
A pack of entries was promptly formed, all of them with a few points but not enough to
distance the others. This can be explained by the diversity of entries, which made the
choice really hard. It's not before ten votes that the pack started to extend, leaded by
FractalSpinZoom. Just behind, MultiBoing and pArAnOId had a hard time following, and
fighting each other.
But since the beginning of the voting, the wonderfull ItsDemoTime by ArmOric has made a
lightning acceleration to the first place, and made a lone race until victory (next time
we'll make anti-doping test ;).

Sto? by eXoTiCorn/ICeBird (35 points)
X-FileZ by casma (20 points)
Escape by Tom/Kulture (18 points)
Followed by SockZ (14); MiniPet (12); x (11); HugeMacros (5).
There has been a hard fight for the 2nd place between Escape and X-FileZ, it was fun to see
them exchanging places at almost every new vote ;). Outside the top 3 there also was a fight
between MiniPet, SockZ and X to know which one would come 4th, with loads of changes brought
by the last 2 votes.
Anyway, so high above all those quarrels that one can wonder if it even noted about their
existence, stands the winner of the 4Kb category: the fantastic Sto? demo by eXoTiCorn.
A masterpiece, indeed.
