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 around 100s left on the timer, others might run out of time on their first try.

It should still be infinite lives even if there's not an infinity symbol. (If you die it will just stay at 5 lives.) If it's not working, try inserting the patch yourself.

The base ROM patch doesn't seem to insert the infinite lives for some reason. (Usually, there should be an infinity symbol next to it instead of 5.)

You don't lose a life when you die, so it's still technically infinite lives. Putting in an infinity symbol is too much effort : )
Yes, that feature is allowed.
If I want to gather feedback on my level, where would I go to do that?

Is it ok to submit multiple levels?
No, you can only submit one entry.
Is it allowed to change the color of the palette with Level ExAnimated frames or Level ExAnimated frames without modifying the palette editor?

No. You cannot use Exanimation in any way.

Am I allowed to redirect the midway entrance to another level?

So, I asked this question in the previous OLDC, I just want to make sure it's still allowed.

Also, can we use different settings for the main and midway entrance given that they're both still in the same level?
For the first question, that seems perfectly fine to me. For the second, that's also perfectly fine. The only thing you can't do is put the midway entrance at another level.
I didn't notice any aesthetic category. Does that mean that cutoffs will be ignored by judges? Like for example making floating water, which is impossible in current rule set to be made without cutoff.
Yeah, cutoff like that won't get marked down. In general, aesthetics won't affect your score unless it's terrible enough to negatively impact the design.

Oh cool, glad to know that the effort that I put into the aesthetics of my level was partially wasted.

But at least I got some personal satisfaction from making my level look good.

it wouldn't have been wasted if you read the judging rubric 🙊

Yeah, I probably should have read it first. But again, I put in the effort of making my level look good for my own satisfaction. So I'm not too upset about it personally

This will be my first submission, and just want clarification of the rules: No manipulating MAP16, correct? For example, no upside down munchers? water that can kill you? etc... totally vanilla?
