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!

If it clicks that everyone's ears bleed from it, it's bugged most probably. Still, you know I'm not as sensitive to clicking as Søren is.

Can we proceed to serious issues? Rules are set in stone - they worked last time, they're going to work this time as well. I can promise I won't make a fuss about that damn 1:01 and will prevent Didi from being nazi about it. Period. Now, gimme a break.

Can I cheat with the timer, having the 'second' update each 70 frames or so?

There's no on-screen timer, because graphics are not allowed. Right?

- no SID model preference (should sound good on all SID models)
...
I don't see a proper scientific, ahem, way to judge whether a tune complies to that rule or not.


Entries could be disqualified if they explicitly state the preferred SID model somewhere.

We can also adapt the judging process, in the spirit of the rule, like this: We all randomise the SID model before listening to each tune. Half the people will judge it based on how it sounds on 6581, half based on how it sounds on 8580. If it sounds great on both, the average score will be higher.

Jeez. It's not about SID flag. It's about not sounding like muffled diarrhea on 6581 (and believe - all regular MSL stuff, for example, would sound like this on 6581). Don't worry, LFT, you have least to fear in this respect ;) In practice it's mostly about taking more classical approach where to put filter and where not to. Tune DOESN'T have to sound identical on both chips.
