It has come to my attention that I've been accidentally inconsistent with telling people whether or not they're allowed to use the Layer 3 to Subscreen
patch. Towards the beginning of the contest I allowed it but never added it to the list of approved additional patches and we never put out a second version of the base rom. A month went by and while I was away from my computer and traveling, I told people in the Discussion thread that they were not allowed to use it. I simply forgot what my earlier decision was and since I hadn't written it down anywhere, I didn't have anything to reference when telling people the other day.
So let's fix that. You are allowed to use the Layer 3 to Subscreen patch to fix issues you may have had with your layer 3 or status bar.
To make up for this oversight on my part and give people time to add the patch and do any redesigns that they deem necessary as a result, I am extending the deadline for VLDC11 until March 20th, 2019, at 17:59:59 UTC
. That's five (5) additional days for you to work on levels.
I hope you're all enjoying the contest so far, and I can't wait to start judging everything. Thanks for your understanding.
