Event id #2526 : Intro Creation Competition 2016

Sorry for skipping this event last year, but life is life and I simply would not have had the time to host this event in a proper way.

So finally X 2016 is over and the big productions are out. So maybe you are in the mood for a smaller project.

Competition runs from November 1st, 2016, until January 3rd, 2017. So you have a full 2 months to deliver your creations. This should be enough for an intro.

Please use this thread for questions, discussion and everything else concerning this competition.

THE RULES (same as in 2014, worked very well):
- 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 a changing or moving text message (e.g. scrolling text, different lines fading in & out, etc.)
- 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).
- 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.
- Intros may not have been used before entering the competition.
- Entries must be handed in as executable format startable with RUN (.prg or embedded in .t64 or .d64).
- 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 January 3rd, 2017 at 23:59:59 (11:59:59 pm) CET.
Voting closes at Sunday January 8th, 2017 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!

Should consider only "Public Votes" for the charts...
In this way we will cut off all Anonymous Down/Upvote Cowards.
Just my 2 cents...

And there it is: the first "anonymous votings are bad" thread of 2017!

Would be perfect in theory but for some more overlooked intros it means not enough votes and totally distorted result :|

May be a "rule" for ICC2017...
"Final chart take in care just public votes".

If we were wrong to date, it is not necessary that we continue to make mistakes tomorrow.

=P

an attempt to manipulate the results in my favour. Could you please delete your 1 votes? :(


That fool sneaky one doesn't know that it's best to manipulate giving 4-7s or 9-10s if you go for par excellence skulduggery! (me ducks and covers :D)

I find it kinda amusing that people are disputing votes on a novelty bogus contest where there's literally no award whatsoever for achieving a top position.

This is an intro competion thread, but this voting rant is always entertaining. It is how democracy works, one inputs a vote that sums up their opinion and when someone else votes differently one is free to complain, blame, coerce, convince, threaten, influence or bribe the ppl who vote differently. Or, one could just thumb up everything and be done with it and be no wiser. But... bribing *wink* *wink* :)

Well, there *is* a reward in that the folks behind the winning entries will have managed to come out at the top of a fifty plus pile of submissions; doing reasonably well in a strong field is always an ego boost whilst having the first vote on a release being an anonymous five does piss on the metaphorical chips somewhat.

Honestly, i just want to be loved... or at least lusted after, that works too. =-)

Or at least dangle from the ceiling with apple in your mouth and being spanked fiercely as a reward xD Close or no cigar?
