About existing codebasesHello,
I have recently (this ludum dare) started using pygame and I quite enjoyed it. So I'm thinking of joining pyweek. I have a question regarding the existing code base though.
The rules state:
"You are not allowed to use any exising personal codebases. This includes using those codebases as a point of reference. Hint: release the code well before the comp as part of a tutorial. Then you may refer to it -- and so may the other competitors. "
I'm too late to submit my ludam dare code base now.
But the pyweek game will ofcourse use things like sprite animations and collision detection. I have my own way of handeling this, I always use a spatial tilegrid hash for optimized collisions. This code is going to look very similiar to the existing code, because I know that's what works.
Will I be fine if I just write the same code from scratch, even though it will look very similiar in the end?
