Beginner Level Contest (Read First Post)

I personally think that he's just getting impatient. But honestly, you need to expect questions when hosting a contest. The first post was a bit unclear, and not all of the information was there when some of my questions, in this post or via PM, were made. As such, I agree with Midna on this one.


Agreed To ad infinitesimal. Rayman man, The creator, was not specific in terms of setting down the contest rules. However, he has managed to keep this going, and for that, I tip my hat to him. One thing that I am not clear on though, is if there will be a rubric for this. It just doesn't seem fair that there isn't a preset directory of guidelines for our levels. "Make it for beginners" could be interpreted in many different ways. :|

By beginner, I mean a level that people who have never even heard of Video Games could beat in less than an hour.

That's still not very descriptive. At all.

I personally would like to know:

1) Length desired (in terms of minute)
2) Difficulty expected: If you can't clarify this, maybe you could refer to some example hacks as evidence?
3) If Graphics really count in the final verdict?

These are the type of descriptions that make things easier to understand.

Adding on to that, could you also perhaps mention a screen limit with that as well? That'd greatly help.
It's an almost anything goes contest.

I don't care about that stuff.

Although, what I mean by easy is...

Every level in NSMB is harder than yours.
Ok... I'm done my level. I don't care if the stem of the piranha plant is red. It is easy. The link: The hack of this contest. I was thinking it can win but i'm not here for that. I just want to see how others are like too.

even though i am no beginner and played kaizo before i just have one problem with your beginner hack mariocool1999... do you ever look over the overworld? cause i see one bit of a cloud cutoff, its near the top right. the problem i have is never put in green berrys when the timer is 0 because they will add 20 seconds to the timer and if you accidently eat one with yoshi you will have 20 seconds to finish the level which is not good, the same thing with yoshi's house you put 2 green berrys and if the player is foolish enough they will eat them and still think the timer is at 0 but then they notice they die and are wondering that. thats basically all i have to say


Hacks I Support:


Can you extend the due day? I'm really caught up between C3 and this. =\

Extended.

Also, I'm modifying the first post even more.
Hmm... I'd like to give this a shot (my level design is in need of some real criticism), however, I'll be rather busy for the next couple of days.

If I'm bold enough to submit something later, count me in. If you don't see a level from me, then just forget I existed.

Oh, and if there becomes some form of limit on the possible number of contestants, you can disqualify me in place of somebody else who is more likely to follow through.

I don't care about that.

It should be fixed if your level has yoshi in it.
If not, you can leave it alone.
