    So i was bored after submitting my entry and started to look through some of the impressive games listed in the showcase thread. I thought to myself, wouldn't it be great to see all the entries as a wall of images?

    So I quickly knocked this page up

    Flash in a Flash Competition Wall of Entries

    though my css skills are sorely lacking so its not quite a wall of images the rows have white space between them for some reason.

    Anyway all the entries in the showcase thread are included as long as they had an image. Clicking on an image should take you to that games flash page. Rolling over the image should show the alt tag, that gives the forum name of the person who submitted it and the game title.

    Its quite interesting seeing all the submitted games on a single page.

    Great idea, that's really nice to look at! Makes you realize the creativity at work there so much more than browsing through the Thread page by page :)

    The Unity Team should just cancel the first prize and use it to make us all winners instead, haha ;)

    Good luck to everyone!

    Thanks for the replies.

    I've updated the wall

    - Added new entries.
    - Fixed the spaces between images.
    - Improved the page, black background, added a title and some text.
    - Changed alt tag to title so when hovering over an image the authors name and the name of the game are displayed.

    I updated a image for my game too (Blunk). Also my first post in the thread isn't taking part in the competition (3rd picture in your wall) if that makes any difference. The thread wasn't originally meant for competition entries.

    Great visual of all the entries and it looks like the list keeps on growing. Thanks for taking the time to set that up.

    Next time you're messing around with it I'd appreciate if you updated a link to Pigment Hunt, I missed to include it with my screenshots initially. Thanks

    the link is: http://tomaszdzierza.com/games/pigmenthunt.html

    Oh dear what have I let myself in for ;)

    It was getting way to time consuming adding new entries by hand to the html (yeah I know i'm so stuck in 1999 with regard to web coding).

    So I decided to use Director ( knew it still had some uses) and quickly write up some code to write the pages for me, I just have to add the information to a text file. I'm sure this could easily be done in some web tech, but like I said i'm a bit dated in that regard ;)

    The big changes is there are now two pages!
    The awesome Firefox version which pops up a larger image on rollover.
    The ordinary IE8 version, which is just the wall of images like it was previously.

    The original page now provides links to those two.

    I also moved the body text from the top to the bottom of the page


    @Vertexpusher: Added your link to the game
    @hjupter : Your entry is already in the wall.
    @deram_scholzara: Added your entry.

    Noisecrime, thanks for taking the time to make the wall, it's a great idea!

    Did you use Lingo to make the script in Director? That brings back memories from the 8.0 version, it's been a long time since I used it (I guess around a decade!). I remember having seen 8.5 and the 3D support, but at the time I only did a mesh for an infinite road and buildings for a car game with sprites.

    Comparing that to Unity, I can see how far we've gone in the road of game development tools :)

    No problem, figured someone should as there is so much quality to show off.

    I did indeed, though used 8.5 as its still my favourite version, very little got added to it afterwards that has been essential.
    I could have done it in Unity, but it was probably still faster for me to do in lingo, even if I did get horribly confused between lingo syntax and c#. Kept using '+' instead of '' to add strings together and took ages to notice why it wasn't working ;)

    Yeah Unity is just so far ahead of Director/SW3D, actually anything is far ahead of it now and whats more I love how active UT are in keeping it up to date.
