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!

Regarding rules how are you going to resolve issue in regard of fame/namevoting/number of votes?

Drax's tune has been uploaded less than 24h ago and he got 12 votes, my tune - some 26h ago and only 2? ;)

Drax' tune wipes the floor with all other releases anyway (though there are a lot of good and even quite a bunch excellent tunes among them), tune would not have scored much differently anonymously imho, no matter what you do about voting system ;)

With all respect to maestro Drax, I beg to differ ;) I enjoyed his 2013 cracks more and I hope he goes at least for hattrick this time again :)

most people just do some rule/vote whining because it belongs to each compo, let the few who seriously complain sulk on. there are sooo many great tunes, I don't care so much about how you fake the vote results in the ending anyway :P

PS: "anonymous" compo would not make much sense, as experienced listeners would know more than half of artists anyway either by style or even by player routine

RAf, I think it could go both ways or perhaps not even matter whether I am known or not. I simply just care about people voting according to what they think of the music and not for me being drax. I thought of entering under a pseudonym but I believe people would have spotted my style anyways. Perhaps some people would also compare my tune to my previous ones and judge it from that perspective rather than comparing to the other tunes in the compo. One could also make a rule saying that musician rated among the 10 highest in csdb shouldn't attend? I attend because I kinda like composing short tunes due to laziness 😉

Raf, name is one thing - you can't help it. Second thing is people usually don't want to give bad ratings and if entry doesn't meet their expectations, they simply pass. Or they are plainly ambivalent about it which results in the same action. You're probably more than aware that your effort is not entirely on par with Drax (but pretty decent compared to your earlier works which reflected in my evaluation) ;)
