I don't know if this was answered already, but is it okay to hide things behind 1-up checkpoint objects so that they'll only show up later after the checkpoint 1-up has been triggered?

That's absolutely unintended behavior. (No)

The VLDC has more interesting levels, so I'd say you're the one who's got it easy. #tb{:p} Plus, the deadlines keep getting pushed back thanks to the leader & some of the judges quitting half way through the process.

Both contests will have crap entries, but I'm sure the good levels make it worth becoming a judge. You've judged 2 VLDCs now so it must be true.

From your streams, you've enjoyed while a few. You've even called some of the levels "fantastic". I completely understand that it's time consuming due to the sheer amount of entries, but that's just how contests like these are. If you take breaks in-between, it probably makes the experience more enjoyable since you'll feel refreshed after a break.

Hi.
It seems like I won't be able to finish my level, maybe next year.

its getting really hard to justify not having enough time to complete a new entry
7 MORE HOURS??? even vldc had the decency to end at noon. What gives?

I hope I win 11th place :d
I'm not sure what place I'm gonna get (Maybe 15th - 25th), but if I get first or even top three, I'm gonna go insane.

Edit: I also forgot to say how shocked I am to see that there are 77 entries. I was expecting to see around 60 - 70, but I already thought 70 was too many. I guess I was wrong. Let's just hope things go smooth for the judges.

I could try, but I ain't really good with level design. There's a chance I might be able to. :D

oo people r gettin confident w their shit, huh??

just wanna remind everyone of this btw:

Quote
Level Design: 30/30
Was your entry fun? Did it present a correct difficulty curve, fun gimmick usage and intricate usage of sprites?
Creativity: 20/20
Did your entry do more than just jumping over Koopas? Did it go the extra mile by including a gimmick that could be considered unique?


so im hoping yalls confidence takes this into consideration. this isnt gonna be a "make a boring level contest" - just cos there are heavy limitations doesn't mean boring romps with little thought put into enemy placement, level structure, or memorability will have a better chance than they would in a normal vldc. the competition should be just as strong as other level design contests we hold, because it's exactly based around that: level design.

also 5 hours left so if you need to fix your shit or update shit do it now. we will not be having a week long span of being able to update your levels like vitor allowed in vldc lol.
Okay, this is probably an unnessecary/dumb question, but I want to make sure: We can place porcu-puffers in the air, since they are water sprites, right?
I wasn't trying to sound too arrogant or anything, but I believe I put at least some effort into my entry (It's definitely more than a "boring romp"), and I think I met most of those criteria, but on the other hand, I've seen some really creative levels that could probably top mine, so I'm not really sure where I would place, although I can't really tell you much about my entry until you judge it, idol.

imo the standard blippers are allowed because they still follow their natural behavior: swim forward horizontally. Porcu-puffers, on the other hand, slowly descend in a quite unnatural fashion. Maybe if you use it wisely enough the judges won't take off points, but better not to risk it.
