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!

Hi Didi !
great! thanks again for organizing this cool event bringing
some joy to a lot of us loving the good old days :)
it is possible to fetch the event also in the events bar (in the right side "upcoming event" ) i think a lot of ppl don't enter the forum to watch for the events. i didn't know about till Rock told me so. just my 5 cent thought. Good luck for all of you!

ICC 2016 is registered as an event but nearly pushed out of scope by other entries.
I was hoping there would be more entries already so the event would be more in focus. ;)

Didi , again i don't think most of the visitors
entering the forum. the best way to know about new events are from the "upcoming events" tab, therefore this is the reason
to believe for little entries .

Dr.j, I am not sure to which tab you are referring. If it is on the csdb start page, that is only for "recently added events" - so it can be an event from 20 years ago as well.
My suggestion would be rather to check good old c64.sk , which indeed has an overview bar on upcoming (and on currently running) events, on the left side.

I have an entry, but isn't matching some of the rules yet. :)

Upcoming (but not currently running :() events can be configured on your personal settings page for the right bar.
