@soci: Thank you for clearing everything up!

I rather like the idea of making logos for others. Nice change of pace for some, I expect :)

@Smasher: Yeah, pretty much the only 2 rules we really needed, lol.

Ok, so clarification in for @WileCoyote and everyone:

To enter no prior experience, relevant license or logo graphician association membership required ;)

1 group and/or 1 handle logo. So no more than 2 entries per person.

Own group or own handle is not allowed. TheRyk is right as I made a grammatical mistake there and that's not what I originally planned. But that's how it is written. Next time it'll be proof read by language experts and layers ;)

Old logos used as a minor part of other productions like intros or demos may be entered but must mention where they were used before. This made more sense with the original shorter deadline. I'm sure there's enough time now to create something new.

Of course logos are not restricted to display only the letters. There may be additional graphical elements as long as they don't steal the show. By looking at the whole it should be obvious that the composition serves as a promotion for a particular group/handle and that's spelled out prominently.

Please don't try your luck on figuring out where the boundary may lay. It's subjective and you'll be disappointed.

Logos don't have to be character mode based. However if they are then all characters must be either hires or multicolour. Mixed multicolour and hires use is not allowed (see below why). ECM is fine and counts as hires.

For character based logos PETSCII is encouraged as the use of custom character sets don't provide advantage over plain bitmap mode now that mode mixing is disallowed. If the use of character mode presented an extra challenge and it's not obvious at first sight then please mention it.

Background can be of any colour. Border is restricted to black only. So if it's something else it must be treated as black still. Now if this makes your composition look bad then bad luck.

No tricks like mixed hires/multicolour characters, rasters, sprites, animation, scrolling and whatnot.

The technical restrictions are not arbitrary and do serve a purpose. I plan a results collection for the compo and releases must look the same as when they were competing. That's where the plain black border and the use of uniform hires or multicolour mode restrictions comes from.

oh c'mon... no need to get lost in translation.
rules are veeeeery easy: 1) paint a logo 2) Facet will win anyway

to make it even more crystal clear
"must not" = forbidden
"need not" = your choice

As it was questioned in Excessively Sweating Monks I think it's helpful to point out if any rule is unclear due to being lost in translation.

Quote:
One entry of group or handle logo. Neither of them must be your own, but
it must be your own work. No more than 2 entries per person.


In English "must not" is normally "may not". Or did you want to put it "need not"?

Thx for extending the deadline Soci. I will try to make another logo that's not resembling Elysium ;-)

‘Finally a compo where logo graphicians can show off their skills ;)’

Does this mean picture graphicans are not allowed to compete? ;P


‘One entry of group or handle logo. Neither of them must be your own’

If someone wanted to enter two entries, one would have to be a Group logo and the other a Handle logo
(but not their own handle or any groups they are a member of)


‘If your personal best was released in a production years ago and you're
low on motivation and time then it's possible to enter that anyway. In this
case please note where it was used for informed voting.’

Released logo’s can be entered into the compo?

One more question: I assume there is no limit of 256 chars in place, based on what I have seen of some of the entries.

Hi Soci,

This is a cool compo and I hope I can enter something.

Can you clarify the rules for me though, I am unsure about this part:

Am I allowed to enter 2 logos total, and these logos need to be a group name or a handle, and neither can be my own, so in my case Hammerfist and Desire?

Edit: oh, and I am curious: does this just need to be letters, or can we add stuff? For example, Facet made this amazing Acrouzet logo, and then did it again but added background and foreground images, like the version with the masked girl face in front. Would something like that be allowed or be too much for just a logo?

Thanks!

Thanks everyone! You're right, that's a bit of a tight deadline and to make that work it should have been announced a month ago (when the idea came). So I'm fine with changing the deadline to 31st July for once.

@poison and soci this is what I think about if this is how I enter the game, you have graphics on 01/07/2022 ;-)

Finally a compo where logo graphicians can show off their skills ;)

Graphics mode of choice are plain multicolour, hires or petscii with
black border. Must be static and fit on a single screen, no sprites or
other tricks.

One entry of group or handle logo. Neither of them must be your own, but
it must be your own work. No more than 2 entries per person. Must be
executable.

If your personal best was released in a production years ago and you're
low on motivation and time then it's possible to enter that anyway. In this
case please note where it was used for informed voting.

Deadline is 1st of July. Voting is on CSDB, highest rating wins. No
prices, think of it as an up-to-date chart for this discipline.
