@Trap: all ratings rather than public

@Trap: yep, rasters allowed of course as are the .. what’s it called again? The magic byte thing ($3fff, $7fff etc)..? Just no chars or bitmaps etc. DoubleDYPP in Memento Mori and Hedge of Disgrace (the new version) are prime examples. But we expect better than these of course.

@Jak: hah, no, vanilla C64 only. The dev kit will be coming from the UK. It’s arriving to my house tomorrow actually - so I will leave it in the box and just add new shipping labels :-)

Geez Raistlin, that IS insanely wonderful. Surely BeamRacer is allowed? (of course it is not but reading the rules litterally it is).

If shipping costs explode, you can contact me and I will donate the shipping label if shipping is from DE (I have special rates, y'know).

Properties of VIC... Groepaz :D

You are crazy, Raistlin :)

Winner is determined by CSDB ratings - is that public or all?

Are rasterbars allowed?

NEW: I'll be donating a MEGA65 devkit as the prize for this compo. I'll ship that out as soon as I can once the compo is over. It would be helpful if someone in Europe won so that I don't have postal costs to USA/Australia/Asia/Africa to consider ;-p

@Groepaz: Sure, but (probably) only if you like those properties.

sounds more like a coder comp... and perhaps you pre-prepared something already.

to do decent pic u need more than 8 sprites perhaps, not all artists can code to show that (perhaps)

Sure, I don’t see a reason not to allow raster bars.

All VIC tricks are fine - just make sure there’re no chars or bitmap visible on screen.

It means you can change the size, color and weight of your VIC

"Change any VIC properties that you like"

so, raster bars would be allowed? is that how it's intended?
