This was a lot of fun, though I think I may have missed the point and gone *too* oldschool. Some of these entries change the whole way I think about intros. More compos like this in the future, please. (Another 3-color logo comp?)

I take all votes because there are too less people making their votes public. But on parties you also do anonymous voting, so no difference here.

Entry submission deadline is over. Now you have time until December 9th, 2013 at 23:59:59 (11:59:59 pm) CET to vote for the entries for the final ranking.
I encourage everyone to place their vote because having many votes makes strategic up- and downvotes ineffective!

User Comment

It counts. Exceptions are system flags, e.g. $0291 to lock charset switching. IRQ vectors like $fffe/$ffff, $0314/$0315 $fffa/$fffb and $0318/$0319 are excluded, too. You may also use e.g. $a800-$e800 if you like.

User Comment
Submitted by TheRyk on 23 November 2013
So if first VIC bank with default screen address is used, the whole stuff (uncrunched) may range from $0400 to $43FF, right? How about RAM between stack and screen such as tape buffer? Does it count or not?

User Comment
Submitted by Didi on 13 November 2013
Maybe I should another time explain what the "scrolling text" rule means: Letters moving over the screen displaying some kind of message text. This and this also contain scrolling text fitting the rules and both have a logo included (just two examples). Probably they don't fit the memory limit, I did not check them for that.

User Comment
Submitted by CreaMD on 4 November 2013
I also think scorrling text is too limiting. What if one want's to use fade in and fade out, or different things to create the intro. No that I have right to bitch about that, though. I don't plan to code anything on c64 in close future.

User Comment
Submitted by Didi on 30 October 2013
IRQ vectors are excluded, so you may modify $fffa/$fffb and $fffe/$ffff without violating the rules.

User Comment
Submitted by Hein on 30 October 2013
Oh, so I'm allowed to use $fffa up to $4200?

I advertised the compo in C64/Amiga scene at fb, hope it's gonna help.

User Comment
Submitted by Didi on 21 October 2013
Just what Groepaz wrote. If you use standard screen RAM at $0400-$07e8 it counts as used RAM. So you may use area $07e8-$4400 for the rest.

User Comment
Submitted by The Gothicman on 21 October 2013
That's what I wanted to know, mein Groepaz!

User Comment
Submitted by Groepaz on 21 October 2013
it means that whatever region you use for screenram (videoram) counts for the maximum $4000 bytes you can use.

User Comment
Submitted by The Gothicman on 21 October 2013
What do you mean by saying:
"Screen RAM counts..."

Code in the $0400-area or really from $0400-3C00 (for example) only?

Didi, of course it's not a problem ;) I just love crack intros without scrollers, as they are on the opposite of what you'd expect.

User Comment
Submitted by Didi on 18 October 2013
@Wacek: Forgotten Dots also contains scrolling text. You may scroll it up, down, left, right, jumping, with waves, however. An upscroller is also OK. Should not be a problem to include something like this.

User Comment
Submitted by wacek on 18 October 2013
Let me know when you drop the 'has to include scrolling text' rule, which is blocking my creativity... ;)

User Comment
Submitted by Didi on 18 October 2013
I decided to drop another rule which might prevent people from submitting an entry.
Quote:
- Intros may not be used until voting has ended.
At graphics and music compos it makes sense not to influence voting by seeing them used in combination, but an intro is already a combination.

User Comment

Good idea to extend the deadline, idd.

User Comment

Maybe just hand it an entry for LXT, then I'm pretty sure, others will follow :)

But in general, good decision to extend the deadline :)

Quote:
- Has to do proper cleanup of interrupts and zero-page, etc, after its end (no JMP $FCE2 Reset!). This means you return to a "READY." prompt from where you can load and run a Basic program without any hassle.
I removed that rule because it seems to cause too much hassle. Simple exit to $FCE2 is OK (sorry Richard).

User Comment

"NO exit to $FCE2. You have to do a clean exit to READY."
you gotta define what a clean exit to ready is then - does calling basic warmstart count, for example?

Drean Intro!

User Comment
Submitted by Didi on 18 October 2013
All entries are listed in the event itself and possibly bepp will make an overview page for it again, so no need to wait until deadline with a submission. The voting system worked fine for the previous compos and with many voters manipulation by up- or downvotes will have no noticeable effect on the final result. Maybe the coders are simply not as active as the graphicians or musicians. ;)

User Comment
Submitted by Xenox on 18 October 2013
You miss the first entries, right? Well, because of the bad voting system on csdb everyone will upload the intro on the final day so that people can see the entry on the csdb main side...

User Comment
Submitted by Didi on 18 October 2013
OK, I decided to extend the deadline for a full month, because it turned out to be a bad idea to have 2 compos running at CSDb the same time. I thought it would work because they are targeted to different professions but reality shows different. Now you have a full month to go after the Plain PETSCII Graphics Competition is over.

No limit for the packed size, but for the used memory while running.

User Comment

IMHO intros have to come in two flavors - PAL and NTSC!

User Comment
Submitted by Didi on 4 October 2013
To set it clear: The space used by the packed, runable file does not count as used memory. So if you use e.g. $a000-$e000 for your intro, the packed file at $0801-$xxxx or depacker routines (e.g. Exomizer at $0334-$03d0) used before start of the program do not count as used memory. Memory usage will be checked after depack and while the intro is running. Settings made before depack must not be required to run the intro properly (e.g. color settings).
Just for the people who like to probe the limits of the rules. ;)

So here is the event many people expected after our previous competitions. As the others were targeted at musicians and graphicians, this is one mainly for the coders.

THE RULES:
- Has to work on a plain stock C64 (PAL standard) without any extensions.
- Has to be a one-part intro. Fade-ins and fade-outs are OK.
- Has to contain at least one Logo at whatever size you like.
- Has to contain scrolling text in whatever direction or size you like, but it has to be readable.
- Has to contain music (not just a humming sound, please).
- Maximum RAM usage is $4000 bytes at one block, at whatever location you like. Screen RAM counts as used memory. Exclusions are system addresses like VIC (inkl. Color RAM), SID, CIA, Stack, Zero-page, IRQ vectors.
- Has to be interruptable any time by pressing SPACE-key (exception are fade-in and fade-out).
- Has to do proper cleanup of interrupts and zero-page, etc, after its end (no JMP $FCE2 Reset!). This means you return to a "READY." prompt from where you can load and run a Basic program without any hassle.
- Graphics, charsets and music do not need to be exclusive, but the code should be! So no reuse of existing code with just exchanged graphics and music.
- Entries must be handed in as executable format startable with RUN (.prg or embedded in .t64 or .d64).
- Intros may not be used until voting has ended.
- Max. 3 entries per participant. Entries might be taken back from the compo until deadline. That means if you want to remove one of your works from the compo to make space for another entry from you, this can be done until deadline.

Deadline for entry submission is November 30th, 2013 at 23:59:59 (11:59:59 pm) CET.
Voting closes one week later at December 9th, 2013 at 23:59:59 (11:59:59 pm) CET.
Voting platform is CSDb (with all disadvantages it may have), therefore entries have to be posted here.
Entries will be ranked by weighted average of CSDb votes. Entries with the same weighted average are ranked by their percentages of 10s, 9s, etc.
No prices to win, just the fame. May the best creation win.
