Event id #2636 : Crack Intro Music Competition 2017

After the geat success in 2013, the time has come for another Crack Intro Music Competition!

Several people have asked for it and finally it happens.

This time I have a skilled co-organizer with Jammer.

Competition runs from September 29, 2017, until October 29, 2017. So you have a full month to deliver your creations.

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

THE RULES (same as in 2013, worked very well):
- max. playtime 1:00 min. (PAL playing speed), then repeat or fade.
- max. size: $1000 bytes (preferably located in memory at $1000-$2000)
- single speed only
- no SID model preference (should sound good on all SID models)
- must be handed in as executable format .sid or .prg (might be embedded in .t64 or .d64)
- no graphics or even intro-like presentation is allowed to be included.
- Productions using the music might be released after the voting deadline. The voting should be focused on the music itself.
- the participating musics may not have been released or used in a public production before.
- multiple entries per musician allowed.

Deadline for entry submission is October 29, 2017 at 23:59:59 (11:59:59 pm).
Voting closes one week later at November 6, 2017 at 23:59:59 (11:59:59 pm).
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!

So far Didi is kind of unavailable and hasn't read my PMs so it's possible voting will last till tomorrow's end, who knows. I don't want to check votes all by myself, honestly :D

Thank you too, Didi (and of course also Jammer) for organizing. I guess number of my entries already shows that I had a lot of fun participating.

I also enjoyed literally *all* entries. Great job, fellow musicians and noise makers :-)

My suggestions / wishlist for the future would be:
- raise time limit to ~1:10 to include 1:02 and 1:04 "pop music sequence" loop points
- drop "no graphics" rule and allow everyone to use their [groups] standard player. As you can see in the download stats most people only listen to the SIDs anyway.
- remove fade option from playtime rule, introtunes should loop
- consider to split the compo into 4K and 2K categories

But of course you can already count me in the next time with the same ruleset :-)

Thank you - Didi and Jammer - for this awesome compo! Congrats to Drax for winning this thing again! You know it's been a crazy good compo when two of my faves (among many others) come in on #54 and #55 each with a great 8.0 rating!

Thanks to all my fellow SID-lovers for your awesome releases!

Again, that was hell of a compo! Kudos and much thanks to all participants and voters! We'll surely refine on ruleset next time but don't expect revolution :P
