Event id #2757 : Intro Creation Competition 2018

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


After ChristopherJam had the chance to run a similar compo last year, this year I am back with the known ruleset, with only slight change.

Runnning the competition after X party turned out to be a great timeframe, so I stay there.

Competition runs from November 5th, 2018, until January 6th, 2019. So you have a full 2 months to deliver your creations. This should be enough for an intro.

THE RULES:
Your intro...
- has to work on a plain stock C64 (PAL standard) without any extensions.
- has to be a one-part intro. Short 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).
- has a maximum RAM footprint of $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. This means RAM besides chosen $4000 bytes area and exceptions has to be the same before and after running the intro. What happens during runtime is up to you.
- has to be interruptable any time by pressing SPACE-key (exception are short fade-in and fade-out).
- does not need to have exclusive graphics, charsets or music. But the code should be exclusive, so reuse of existing code with just exchanged graphics and music is not allowed.
- has not been publicly used before entering the competition.
- has to be handed in as executable format startable with RUN (.prg or embedded in .t64 or .d64).

Maximum 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 Sunday January 6th, 2019 at 23:59:59 (11:59:59 pm) CET.
Voting closes at Sunday January 13th, 2019 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!

I wonder about
"- does not need to have exclusive graphics, charsets or music. But the code should be exclusive, so reuse of existing code with just exchanged graphics and music is not allowed."

"...reuse of existing code... not allowed."
Hmm, how will it be possible to write anything at all?

Nitpicker. ;) I guess you know what it means: Don't take an old intro, exchange music and/or graphics and throw it into the compo.

Write new code. But yeah, reusing some routines is ok I guess, as long as the result doesn't look too much like the same. I got away with using pretty much the same multiplexor in Snolder & Garn, Tis the Season and Transcom Intro 08 Remake.

When adding your intro to the compo, please choose "C64 Intro (not crack intro)" as release type. The choice "C64 Crack Intro" is for Intros that actually have been used as crack intros. When and if your "C64 Intro (not crack intro)" has been used in a crack, you can change the release type to "C64 Crack Intro".

I have already corrected the release types for the intros in the compo accordingly. Took a while.

Thanx.

I've been using a copyright symbol as a Cosine logo for a couple of decades now, so that counts as per the ICC rules, right...?

I would count this as known logo for Cosine.

My GTA intro is under "released outside the compo" even though it fits all the rules. Can someone fix please ? :)
