Event id #2526 : Intro Creation Competition 2016

Sorry for skipping this event last year, but life is life and I simply would not have had the time to host this event in a proper way.

So finally X 2016 is over and the big productions are out. So maybe you are in the mood for a smaller project.

Competition runs from November 1st, 2016, until January 3rd, 2017. So you have a full 2 months to deliver your creations. This should be enough for an intro.

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

THE RULES (same as in 2014, worked very well):
- Has to work on a plain stock C64 (PAL standard) without any extensions.
- Has to be a one-part intro. Fade-ins and fade-outs are OK.
- Has to contain at least one Logo at whatever size you like.
- Has to contain a changing or moving text message (e.g. scrolling text, different lines fading in & out, etc.)
- Has to contain music (not just a humming sound, please).
- Maximum RAM usage is $4000 bytes at one block, at whatever location you like. Screen RAM counts as used memory. Exclusions are system addresses like VIC (inkl. Color RAM), SID, CIA, Stack, Zero-page, IRQ vectors.
- Has to be interruptable any time by pressing SPACE-key (exception are fade-in and fade-out).
- Graphics, charsets and music do not need to be exclusive, but the code should be! So no reuse of existing code with just exchanged graphics and music.
- Intros may not have been used before entering the competition.
- Entries must be handed in as executable format startable with RUN (.prg or embedded in .t64 or .d64).
- Max. 3 entries per participant. Entries might be taken back from the compo until deadline. That means if you want to remove one of your works from the compo to make space for another entry from you, this can be done until deadline.

Deadline for entry submission is January 3rd, 2017 at 23:59:59 (11:59:59 pm) CET.
Voting closes at Sunday January 8th, 2017 at 23:59:59 (11:59:59 pm) CET.
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!

Indeed. Can I stress it enough that there's no intro compo without Hein Design? ;)

Quoting Dwangi
Why can this compo get so many entries and demo of the year not?
Probably because people see it as a bigger job to create a whole "demo" even though it isn't necessarily the case. Demo of the Year Competition 2013 had a decent amount of entries, but the weird timing of Demo of the Year Competition 2014 was probably to blame for people not caring. If there was one in 2017 where the deadline was actually in 2017, and there was time enough (like 3+ months) I would definitely be motivated.

Can I use memory $0400-$4400 (one block of $4000) for code+msx+gfx, zeropage and VIC/SID/ColorRAM/IRQVectors?
I will not touch $0200-$0400 and memory above $4400.

in that case you'll be disqualified for 1 byte :)

Yeah I knew someone will catch it :).
I meant of course $43ff.

And to avoid more inaccuracies, I will touch for sure memory above $43ff because of VIC/SID/IRQVectors ;).

I must say I'm impressed with the entries submitted so far. It feels good to see so much creativity and diversity in the intro's. Good work, people!
