SMWC Idol, 2!: It's over already?!

Link Thread Closed
Guys, even if you're not good at porting, you should enter, I didn't think my Choco Level entry would do good, but it got 5th. Don't be shy.
Do remixes of songs count or does it have to be the original?

I has to be the original.
Will the entries be publicly released for use in hacks, or only the winners?

- Create a port with a channel using p5,60 throughout, a channel with $ED $5C $A9 used throughout, and a channel with at least two pitch bends (use may fulfill more than one requirement on a channel)

I would think that those who aren't good at porting, i.e. have little to no experience, would have simply no idea how to enter the audition round with a valid entry.

Honestly, I don't have a very good idea of how to port, but I've always wanted to learn, so, what the hell, I'll try it out. Good luck everyone!

The winner is the only one that is guaranteed to be submitted, though the other entries are more than welcome to submit their ports, hence the reason why no specific song will be required for round criteria.

As for the foreboding entry, Imamelia is more than capable of the challenge, as is Koyuki and the others who "aren't that good at porting".
Hmmm....I'm still pretty n00by at porting, but I might have to enter this if I have the time. Sucks that we can't do something original, or an original take on a well-known song. I'd have a solid chance of winning that :D
As it is though...well, I'm seriously thinking about it.
Where's Slash? He gonna enter?

MooT





My life has not involved SMW hacking for the past several months...I still love you guys though!

There is more than one round. If this is anything like the idol I ran in 2008, expect some pretty random stuff which goes beyond simply porting a song. It'll be fun.

just a note, but i guess SNN hit the wrong button or such, it was closed for a second O.O

also, i wish good luck to the participants.



I might put some sort of signature here once. I guess.

Not to mention making a port takes like, a fourth as long as a contest level entry.

Depends on the port, depends on the contest entry. Smithy took at least a week to do, and some people finished their contest entries in a single day.

I'm working on a hack! Check it out here.
This IRC conversation should explain the changes that are about to happen.

[09:43] <andy_k_250> hey Atma - have we had only two entries so far for Idol?
[09:43] <Atma> yes
[09:43] <Atma> I'm going to have extend the deadline or something
[09:45] <Atma> Andy
[09:46] <Atma> how does this sound for an idea
[09:46] <Atma> we make the Idol contest join at anytime
[09:46] <Atma> winner of each round gets their song featured
[09:46] <Atma> we'll run it for a few rounds
[09:47] <Atma> then take the highest overall score and highest average score (if they've been in X or more events)
[09:47] <Atma> and award them whatever
[09:48] <andy_k_250> that sounds good
[09:48] <andy_k_250> the last contest kind of ended prematurely, unfortunately
[09:49] <andy_k_250> but this would make it open a bit more
[09:49] <Atma> yea
[09:49] <Atma> I think this is the best plan
[09:49] <Atma> because it doesn't force people into it

So here's how it's going to work now. Each monday, a new weekly challenge will be put up. We'll judge the entries of last week during this time and feature the winner of the round. Previous entries do not obligate you to join the current challenge. At the end of the contest (this will probably run about 8-10 weeks or so) we will tally up the points. The highest 3 will hopefully be awarded a shiny trophy. We then will average each persons score by their number of entries. The three highest averages will hopfully be awarded a shiny trophy too.
Uh wuut...?

I don't really understand appart from it being 8 weeks long or so...

SMWHacking? I rest my case.
SMWCentral? I leave it to rest.

Okay, here's an example.

-Week 1 (this week) Challenge A is presented.
-Week 2 Challenge A is ended, Challenge B starts. Challenge A is judged during this week.
-Repeat until enough weeks have passed.
-Add up all the scores for Participants, top 3 get a trophy or something.
-Average each persons score, top 3 get a trophy or something.
Ah like that.

Now when will this start?

I said each Monday in the earlier post, but I'm leaning towards the end of each Saturday.

Because of the abrupt change, I'll give everyone an extra week (till the 22nd is over) unless the general consensus is to not take the extra week (when the 15th is over)
I was going to enter, until I read the requirements for round 1, and realized I had no idea what they meant.
So if it has to be original, then I'm assuming that means that remixes and such aren't allowed? That's...really the only way I could enter. :(

Oh well, I'll just sit back and watch the great songs roll in. Good luck, everyone!
I should get a new layout.

Probably won't, though.
