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!

Oswald + others, if I may help count on me! but I suggest to wait for some feedback first. I mean: perhaps it's just Oswald and me who like the idea?! :) also if we do a DemoPart Creation Compo now there won't be any ICC2017. Will that make people with an intro ready mad? (hello Cruzer) :)

Some feedback: I'd rather have ICC2017, identical rules to last year aside from the $4000 bytes contiguous section.

Replace that with:
-file size of at most 51200 bytes
-after space is pressed, must fill RAM from $0801 to $9000 with the contents of {provided 34kb file of incompressible data} then jmp $080d

That still allows for 16kb of intro, but memory can be shuffled around as per effect requirements.

if you want it to happen, then you'll have to fucking DO it.

ok, you are putting some pressure on my back. :) no problem, but it was Oswald who had the idea for a demopart compo, I just liked his idea. So now if after ICC17 Oswald, you or anyone else want to co-organize that event with me just PM me and I'll more than happy to help. If I should organize a compo alone I'd choose a more stupid subject, like a single note sid compo, a 3x3 char petscii compo or a sex games remake compo. I don't want to be remembered in the future I did something serious all alone. I've a reputation to uphold! :P

(equivalently, if you load "intro",8 then run the intro then press space, it should restore whatever the contents of locations $4801 to $cfff were before jumping to $4801. It has almost the same impact on memory usage, and the entries can be smaller.)

16K maximum size is okay, the stupid part about that rule was to have the remaining 48K in one contiguous block of memory WHILE the intro is running (as opposed to after pressing space).

AFAIR you could freely choose the bank for your intro ;) I chose the shittiest 0 but that wasn't mandatory :D

The 16k were not needed to be in one bank, just to be at one block which could also go across a bank border. Some competititors used this option.
