Come to think of it, how would you do the maps for this? Wouldn't all of them just be one bland area?

WHAT IN TARNATION!?


Yep, it's finally that time again, folks! It's contest time!

For this contest, the stakes are a little higher, as the winner will have a chance to pick a Net Navi to be added to Awesome Network! However, there's a little more work involved than just writing obituaries... in fact, you have to write a whole program!

Don't freak out just yet, it's not an actual "program". No, the team needs ideas for GutsMan.EXE's interaction system. If you remember from BN3 onward, there was a HumorProg part for the Navi Customizer that replaced MegaMan's dialogue with puns and witty remarks. Megaman (the forum user, mind you) had the idea of giving every Navi in the campaign their own version of the HumorProg, and there's actually a lot of good material! EXE MegaMan will retain his HumorProg (and use DarkHumor when he's been using a lot of Dark Chips), while other Navis will have unique programs. For example, Roll simply talks to Lan, so her program is named Convrsatn. Likewise, FireMan has a sense of nobility, so he uses Chivalry.

We're asking for the name of GutsMan's program, as well as a few sample lines for conversation. Here's a couple examples from other Navi programs:
Spoiler for Hiden:
[HumorProg]
MegaMan: I'm taking a break.
Lan: Huh? A break?
MegaMan: Yeah. I've decided to go fishing.
Lan: Is there even such a thing as fishing in the cyberworld?
MegaMan: Of course. We've got plenty of worms.
Lan: Aaargh!

[DarkHumor]
MegaMan DS: Lan... Did you do your homework...?
Lan: Uh... No. Why?
MegaMan DS: Because... Every day you don't do your homework... Someone dies... Hehehehe...
Lan: Gulp! I-I'll do my homework! I promise!
MegaMan DS: Grrr...

[Convrsatn]
Roll: Lan, do you know what time it is?
Lan: Uh... No.  What time is it?
Roll: It's time to do your homework.
Lan: Erk!
Roll: Come on, Lan.  The sooner you get this done, the better.
Lan: Uh...  Oh hey!  We've got e-mail!
Roll: Um... I didn't hear the PET beep.
Lan: No, no!  It did!  Oh, it says we should... Uh... Go see Numberman on the net!  Yeah!
Roll: Sigh... I never had to go through this with Mayl...

[HumorWave]
Omega-Xis: Hey, did you know? If you take down an enemy, they drop their chip for you to use!
Omega-Xis: Don't be afraid to go buck wild! Try to collect 'em all!
MegaMan: Even I have a Navi Chip now!
Geo: That sounds great!
MegaMan: Yeah, I'm not afraid to *chip* in...
Geo: Heh heh. That was pretty bad...
Geo: Does he do this all the time?
Lan: I don't want to talk about it...
Please send your entries to me via Cutmail with the title "AwNet's Guts Program Contest", or something else that's obviously related to the competition. Try to keep your entries short and sweet; if you can, don't exceed 1024 characters per conversation. Remember, each entry needs the name of GutsMan's program, and a minimum of TWO example exchanges. The winner will select three different Net Navis, one of which will be chosen for inclusion as a playable class in Awesome Network. The runner-up can select three viruses from the Battle Network series, and one of them will be chosen as an enemy to encounter in the AwNet campaign.

Thanks! I hope to see a lot of great entries from you all!

I was planning on ending it after I got a few entries (similar to the last contest), but I think August 31 is a good estimate.

Okay, well, please alert me when you're ending it. I'm getting an idea every so often.

I'm glad to say that the first entry has been received from none other than xColdxFusionx, the winner of the previous obituary contest. Thanks for the submission!

There's still plenty of time to get your entries in as well, so if you want to take a shot, go for it!

The front post has also been changed to include the contest details, rules, and entry list.

I never played any BN games, but the "program" sounds a lot like conversation strings. Is it the same or am I missing something? I read the explanation, but I'm not sure I got it. Do we simply have to come up with a dialogue?

Yeah, they're just conversation strings.

In any of the Battle Network games, pressing the L Button would allow the player to talk with Lan (if playaing as MegaMan in a network) or MegaMan (if controlling Lan in the world map). Usually their chat would contain advice meant to guide the player in case they forgot what they were supposed to be doing, but by using the HumorProg their conversations would be changed into jokes or funny exchanges instead of game reminders.

Of course, for the contest it's not necessary to make GutsMan funny. The team just needs... well, conversation strings. Come up with how GutsMan.EXE would talk to Lan in their spare time, and provide a few examples. That's it.

Well, yeah. After playing Dex's chapter, Lan can use GutsMan as his Navi in any of his storyline chapters. And, because you're using Lan, you have access to the HumorProg sub-routine... or whatever GutsMan is using.
