Event id #2636 : Crack Intro Music Competition 2017

After the geat success in 2013, the time has come for another Crack Intro Music Competition!

Several people have asked for it and finally it happens.

This time I have a skilled co-organizer with Jammer.

Competition runs from September 29, 2017, until October 29, 2017. So you have a full month to deliver your creations.

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

THE RULES (same as in 2013, worked very well):
- max. playtime 1:00 min. (PAL playing speed), then repeat or fade.
- max. size: $1000 bytes (preferably located in memory at $1000-$2000)
- single speed only
- no SID model preference (should sound good on all SID models)
- must be handed in as executable format .sid or .prg (might be embedded in .t64 or .d64)
- no graphics or even intro-like presentation is allowed to be included.
- Productions using the music might be released after the voting deadline. The voting should be focused on the music itself.
- the participating musics may not have been released or used in a public production before.
- multiple entries per musician allowed.

Deadline for entry submission is October 29, 2017 at 23:59:59 (11:59:59 pm).
Voting closes one week later at November 6, 2017 at 23:59:59 (11:59:59 pm).
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!

It's a silly interpretation of that rule.

And personally i think that visual presentation has little to no effect on voting outcome. Especially if it's not an actual demo effect or anything obviously going for visual impact.

This is a silly rule! Nobody obeys it anyway.

Mermaid is animating text from her musicplayer on the screen like a intro-like presentation. Jammer is using graphical font to make his text look better, not using c64 font. People are using PSID64 with flashing color lines in a intro-like presentation...

And what the heck, according the rules it should be blank/black screens from everyone?!?!??!

Please take this rule away.

Me using psid64 instead of my own (dis-)player (with my spider-sprite and song title scrolling) in this compo is *because* of that rule.

So wait, does this mean that in my next demo I can show the music code on the screen for a bit and it will shut up all those who complain about my demos having no effects...?

Certain people will always find something to complain about, don't you worry.

Suggestion for next Crack intro compo.
Let the origanizers produce 1 or more "templates" for crack intros. Where the logo is the name of the compo and the scroll text contains the song title, composer and song details.

Then let the composers choose which of the templates to compose for and then we have a lot of similar "intros" where we can see how the music feels with that particular intro.

... or as suggested, we could also just go "black" but that makes some really boring screenshots for CSDB.dk :-)

Also if we specify it should sound good on 6581, please lets us agree on WHICH REVISION we are talking about. :-)

I still love the idea of this compo, so dont get me wrong here.

I might even have more tunes up my sleves, if people start to vote on tunes.
