If I have my own yet unused engine that just handles graphics and sound (actual game mechanics, physics, etc are at a higher layer/scripted) can I use it in this contest, or is this contest imply (by the start and end date) that it be made from scratch based on this date?

I'm not a competition moderator, but I don't see any reason why that wouldn't be allowed. After all, a lot of people are using pre-existing systems like MMF to implement their ideas.

No, in order to be legit all entries must be coded in binary.

What, you mean like a hard drive you bought from a shop? Way to take credit for someone else's hard work!  Tongue

A shop?  Only the truly lazy share the supply-chain workload with middle-men Tongue

There is your problem.  If you were using Emacs, you could have used the emacs command for pasting the XKCD emacs comic into a forum quickly.

For some reason, I convinced myself that it was necessary for me to write, from scratch, a tile-based game engine compatible with both OS X and XP. I'm currently struggling my way through fixing bugs in the maze of pointers that is my tile engine...

Oh, and I'm using vim Smiley

If it is your own engine, I think it is ok for competition.
