Event id #2740 : PETSCII disk cover competition

I like the idea

Delivery: upload your work to CSDB in this chain or send to Electric
in: tomustur@gmail.com
File formats: Screenshot PNG or .c file from proposed tool

Though screenshot .PNG won't be a problem, CSDb Mods will go crazy if you up anything but executable .prg or .d64 here ;)

40 x 56 character covers as prg files aren't exactly easy to print. How many paper-based covers are released in an executable format anyway? :)

The rules of the compos are irrelevant to me, you don't release a png _ONLY_ in here, prg or gtfo =)
Change the compo rules, do what you want, but the uploads here should include a C64 format (prg/d64/choose what you want)

Oh, then all these should have a prg, too, I guess: https://csdb.dk/search/advancedresult.php?form%5Bcategory%5D=re..

OK Then, I must have get confused by "PETSCII image", for me a Petscii image is a C64 file with C64 screencodes/characters in it, or an executable which prints something on screen.
If your aim is only printable disk covers it could be any pc graphic fileformat indeed.

ok seems clear now

however, as we're talking about PETSCII, would be great to have executable .prg in addition, pretty please with sugar on top! It won't do no harm but even helps proving it's really PETSCII

Alcools - great one, but wait... are colors allowed?!? I thought since this is a petscii cover compo I should use my MPS 803 dot matrix printer not a lame modern lasercolor one to print the cover :) also the template is all b/w so that tricked me! :) damn compo organizers! :) I spent a lot of time doing this masterpiece Poopscii Disk Cover now I want my time back!! :)

LOL @smasher, bring you 9 needle sewing machine back to the attic :P

Actually the entry helped me noticing entries are supposed to(? or just _may_?) have 56 lines "including flaps" (for whatever that means, maybe the orgas should provide some example .png or whatever)... so more than 2 screens. HMH... got some nice PETSCII for front but no ideas for back yet.

EDIT: PLUS(!) We are supposed to PETSCII backside of disk sleeve upside down as I've just read in the comments to Alcools LMAO *turns his monitor upside down and twists mouse controls*

Anyway, no one ruled out to hand in 25 lines filled with PETSCII plus 31 lines filled with #$20 ;)

I've seen there's example .c files in event entry.

Problem: for whatever reason I can't get newer builds of marq's tool running here on Win 7, neither 32 nor 64 bit works, after chosing platform dialogue nothing happens (though I installed Java Runtime), my old tool version (the one that I get running) doesn't eat that 13+x kB .c file, however.

So can anyone just describe how the ratio including flaps is meant? How many tiles for front and back, how many for flaps?

The whole thing is 40x56 chars with square pixels, this might help: http://www.kameli.net/~marq/petscii-cover-grid.png
