Event id #2065 : 3-Color-Logo Competition 2013

"Submitted by dandee [PM] on 7 March 2013
Bad news. Sorry to say, but Didi has been kicked out of CSDB and he asked me to tell you that the compo is canceled, as he can't take care from the outside. The reasons for kicking him are kind of a mystery to us and have not been told. Ask the admins of this very site for reasons. Sad to see another active guy, that actually contributed a lot (specially to growth of this archive) been thrown out. Sorry to all you guys who did a fabulous job and put much efforts into this, but under this circumstances you probably will understand that it does not make much sense to carry on with this compo. Never really been active here, but I guess I will deactivate my account as well. Take care..."

So, what happened here?

Quoting Count Zero
You fierce 'graphicians' should support your local coders with some X-2020 challenges to show off - suddenly it's November and we just hear about "had no time to properly finish..." :)


I'm both a coder and a graphician, so I'll support myself, thank you very much.

And by the way I've almost finished a 1x1 font for X2020, not sure I can finish it before X2020 though.

I'm just returning to pixeling after 26 years; could you please mention a release here on CSDb which uses mixed sc/mc with a single charset?[...]
Iirc Digger used it in one of his double screen compo entries back in 2011 (Monroe 6569, might use more than one charset, though).

Also veto is really fond of doing gfx in charset mode, exploiting this mixed sc/mc-feature to the max (look e.g. at the graphics in Caren - Thank You Edition 2018, or check out the change-disc-part of Coma Light 13).

@zscs: Also I've used charmode (hires/mc) in the intro for The Great Escape 115% (single charset)

@CF: Thanks for the mention! Coma Light 13 also features fantastic charmode intro logo and the most amazing charmode comic with greetings. Veto has squeezed the most of of it.

@Copyfault, @digger: unbelievably nice pitures, especially the Coma Light 13 cartoon and Monroe 6569. Wow!

Is there any editor which directly support this? I mean, how could we create this kind of pics without coding skills?

In Monroe 6569, a Flash plugin editor mentioned but I cannot export the result somehow. http://c64.blog2t.net/slixed/

MCDraw looks very promising but not sure if it supports charmode yet http://www.tmpbox.com/mcdraw/
I'd ask Veto about his workflow.

very-very promising editor!

I'm currently using Pixcen and I really like it. I don't now, maybe this editor also supports multicolor w/ hires (?).

Tried Timanthes 3.0b as well, a bit difficult to my (non-existing:D) skills at the moment.

Nevertheless, take my +1 vote to any compo which related to a new logo competition :-)

I think using 'level editors' would probably the way to go if you don't have a custom editor. Which sucks.

Personally I'd just hack up a C64-native editor, or given more time, a PC-based editor. But that pushes the compo into the realm of code + gfx, not pure gfx.

An another possible Logo compo came to my mind: 8-sprite logo 'Covid-19' edition compo.
...with free combinations, like the possibility of special entries, e.g.: 4x1 sprite Multicolor and 4x1 sprite hires overlay, etc. :-)

And the Spritemate online sprite editor would be perfectly enough for it, so everyone would have the necessary software too. ;-)
