Thanks to all of the judges for the rather merciful trophy. I really spent half of the month working on the entry, and the other half dealing with webspace and switching between the internet at the school and my work at home. More than a hassle than it's worth.
THE JUDGES MAY FEEL FREE TO REVOKE AND REPOSITION THE THIRD PLACE TITLE UNDER CONCENT OF IT'S CURRENT OWNER.
I really mean that too.
And yeah, i did use spirit. I was skeptical at first really. The use of custom code was not clearly stated in the compo brief, and some of the things I had planned would be difficult to execute smoothly without messing up everytime.
The senseless files included with the mod was a big slip of the eye as well. I thought I had packaged it up cleanly, but steam must have placed a bunch of crap-files in the mod's directory before zipping it. The sprites that weren't used couldn't be deleted because the map supposeably used them. I still don't really know how to fix this one
The textures were rather decent on my behalf, given I made them in one day, unlike most of my sets, i spent up to 4 to 10 days on textures alone. Some of them didn't match keenly and some weren't that nice at all.
I thought the map was too long, really.
... and i still don't have a decent file host. If anyone can PM me a link, please do so. I tried GeoCities, and all of the plugins don't work on the school's comps.
~Thanks for listening to my bullshit.
