Asking for a friend.


That's ok but a bit boring imo.

Wasn't this explicitly ruled out long ago?

And taking Groepaz’ advice:

RULE ADDENDUM: center area must be of a different color than the border. I can imagine timing can be tricky so a few lines or pixels extra or less of the center area is ok. But it should by no mistake look like the regular border.

"a few lines or pixels extra or less of the center area is ok"

.. this one I don't understand. Rules are rules, right? We can all save screenshots from VICE and compare our "fake border" to VICE's border, after all, can't we..? Just set the screen to 38 or 40 columns, 24 or 25 rows, take a snapshot from VICE - and recreate the exact border appearance in your demo part?

This is to address minor visual differences when "simulating" the screen+border duality, i believe.

Recreating the exact screen position can be prohibitively tricky or downright impossible.

E.g., think of raster splits to switch background colour twice a frame, which may produce grey dots. Or the fact that a write to $d016 to open the sideborder must happen exactly one cycle before the sideborder, and prevents you from writing to any colour register in that region.

Exactly this. I know how hard that can be and downright impossible, so better to relax that rule to get nicer entries.

Just disqualify all entries that doesnt have the border at the exactly right pixels in the screenshot. Some ppl around here may assist you with that :)

You shouldn't update that page. Just create a new release, then choose this compo as release compo and it will automagically be added to the page.

Due to the big overlap in time with the sprites only compo and due the the coding difficulties in this one, we've extended the deadline one month.
