<Adam> I feel like smwc is a prostitute now, because we put up a porn ad for money

Remember, people! Telepathy is a wooonderful magic!
Woah, a chocolate contest! What a surprise!
DANGIT I WAS JUST GETTING READY TO PUT THIS OFF AND WORRY ABOUT IT LATER

i hope i win
Aaahhh should I enter? I shouldn't enter. But it's been a while! But no. It's chocolate I can do what I want! But I'll make something too ambitious and I'll have to stay up at night to finish it...

I hope the best one wins!



...I'm talking about my internal battle against myself
Only if I weren't in middle of making my hack..#tb{:(}

--------------------




Really too busy with my own hacks to enter. Imma pass this one.
How 30% of the points go toward aesthetics is absolutely outrageous. I will enter a completely vanilla level, aside from some ASM gimmick, and try to disprove the "best levels have custom graphics" trend.

I'm not happy at all, but still, good luck to all of the participants.
considering that like 60% of the participating users (and I'm, probably, not exaggerating) have no idea on how to mix chocolate visuals in a correct way, I'm pretty sure you can make a good-scoring vanilla level. Both of those are independient anyway, so even if every level with custom GFX looks nice, maybe you can pull off some god tier vanilla map16 manipulation in the level.
but you always enter pure vanilla so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
i scrapped my chocolate assets (ill release them later) and im gonna make a vanilla level. this would be the part where i set out to prove some sort of point but my
shit level design
is gonna cause me to lose anyways so LOL

either way i hope i win

Nobody said you can only get a great aesthetic score through custom graphics. If a level would get a good aesthetic score in VLDC it'll still get one here.

This hasn't been the trend for years, and you're being an idiot if you truly believe this (see: the winners of most VLDCs, which aren't exactly graphically special at all compared to entries that rank far below them). Furthermore, it's foolish to define a level as a set of cookie-cutter parts that don't operate together - you need to consider the entire experience, and aesthetics is absolutely a part of that. If two people submit a level with similar design quality and creativity, the one with the better aesthetics will obviously score higher.

Also, a vanilla level can still look and feel really good without being graphically complex simply via the palette choices.

Couldn't really be further from the truth considering that particular level almost won. The judges aren't stupid - they can tell if a hard level is well-designed.
Time to figure out how to go beyond vanilla~
Also I assume we just have to submit an ips patch or something, right?
That's what you're meant to submit, yes.
Let's see if I've got enough time to get something done for this contest.
Just a short question:
Can I use the level I create in my own project after this contest is over? Today I started building a new level and since the contest has no particular theme I may as well try to get it done till the deadline.

I should have something witty to put here (even if it's just to update dated info), shouldn't I?

Do whatever you want with your own levels. It's a waste of time of anyone tries to shun you for it.

Fucc 'em up guys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Not gonna enter this one tho

I would say I'm not entering but the deadline's a hecking month and a half away, I might be a lot less busy by then.
Never entered a choco contest though, but who knows.

CLDC during the ASM contest? That basically makes it so I can't participate. Probably wouldn't anyway, since TLMB doesn't really come around anymore.

He actually came around on IRC just yesterday or so asking hacking stuff, so...

Bad timing still though, yeah.
