Tip: When determining a time limit, remember that players won't be as familiar with the level as you are. If you normally complete the level with the timer around 100, others might run out of time on their first try.Not logged in.

Talk amongst yourselves here about the contest. There are also Discord channels if you're feeling spicy and want to show off.

Why isn't L/R scrolling patched out? If it is, then why isn't it listed?

It totally was patched out from the beginning and not patched out after realizing we all forgot to think about it before going live.

No clue what you're talking about, it's clearly right there at the bottom of the list where it's been the whole time and wasn't added in after realizing we forgot something.

"cape turnaround fix"
"throw direction consistency fix"
"L/R scrolling disabled"

These "quality of life patches" seem extremely limiting in some cases. Why do these contests always force people to use a baserom which is that far removed from vanilla?

And for what reason would you need these patches turned off anyway? I'd agree with you if it was something ala OLDC, but you can still design around QoL patches at your own discretion.
There also is the fact that creating a Kaizo level with L/R scrolling is pretty difficult and most Kaizo hacks outright disable it unless necessary.

Okay, my layout looks ugly.
I used a cape feather and it hardlocked my game, why is that exactly

Well patched cape is just a completely different powerup. Playing a level that has been designed for vanilla cape with the turnaround patch on wouldn't make much sense.

The throw direction consistency fix can break sections also of course. Just a few days ago I made a level and realised later that the inconsistency has been disabled for a custom sprite I was using. That nullified the intended way to do the level (as it was making use of the fact that you can't aim while spinning but only while normal jumping). If a level doesn't absolutly require it I see no reason to have it. It is something that influences design and what you can/can't do a lot when it's applied.

L/R scrolling is helpful and even needded for some glitch tec. It's also just fun to play around with the spawns in a level. Again something that I think should only be patched on a per level basis if absolutly needed.

This should be fixed in version 1.2 of the patch.

I understand your side and I get that screen scrolling is helpful in some cases, but as MFG pointed out, it's also detrimental in the sense that you can break a lot of stuff with it, so it was decided that patching it out was necessary.

The cape fix also makes our lives easier as turning around while flying is costly. I don't think a lot of people will be confident about designing their entries around capes, but it's something to take in mind either way!
My question may be a little silly but I'm obsessed; #smw{-_-2}
Can special graphics, sprites be used or is this contest a vanilla kaizo?

MY VLDC12 ENTRY: Archers' Road

I couldn't find anything to write and sanırım buradaki en aktif Türk benim :| By the way my Youtube channel
Same question than above, I guess "ASM patches" include sprites and blocks, but I want to be sure.
We're not allowed any additional sprites or blocks?

Super Mario Pants World
Luigi's Lost Levels
New Super Mario Pants World
VLDC12 - 72HoKaizo#1
Custom blocks and sprites are external asm, and as such, they are not permitted
I am just out of curiosity and who is the judge? because I do not take part and I would like to try to assess the levels

And do you know how to apply to become a judge?

You have to talk with the host (Doctor No), but I think 3 judges are enough unless one drops out.

I'm not sure if I understood your question properly, but you can't use custom sprites. However, sprite tile-mixing is allowed.

Plot twist:
Morsel is a judge

does the level have to be long?

It's better when the level is short than when it overstays its welcome.
I have a Discord server as well!

Good luck, USA!
