I did come up with an idea for my entry, but it turned out to be post-1990. So I'll have to think of something else :(

Plus I can't be too fancy because I'm studying for a final next week :(

Well, I just realized I'll have to
a) Get back to work post-haste, and
b) Cut the entry down a bit to meet the deadline.
EDIT: I know it says ZIP or RAR, but is there any chance we could also compress it as a 7Z file? The compression rates are usually better, and they can be opened by both 7-zip and WinRar.

Good thing I didn't enter my computer has a virus and I can't do anything on it!
Posted 9 years ago2010-12-13 18:18:47 UTC Post #287892
Well technically, nobody enters until they submit something.
Posted 9 years ago2010-12-13 22:03:10 UTC Post #287907
Right...

JeffMOD: Fine by me. If we can't open it though, we'll bin it. PB and I both run WinRAR, so it should be fine.

7z is fine, but I assume your concern about file size means that it'll be externally hosted. TWHL's file upload system (with the 2MB limit) only allows ZIP and RAR, but if you link to an external file, anything is OK.

Since I have a track record for having bogus folder Layouts upon submission, would anyone like to volunteer to beta test for me? just to ensure that the judges have no issues

i will be (shamelessly) uploading an unfinished map, thinkin of switching engines to L4D2 to finish because it would make a fun survival map. Either that, or use it as a way to learn the UDK.
Posted 9 years ago2010-12-18 15:20:47 UTC Post #288022
Lol big surprise here, Mine's gonna be unfinished. I'm gonna finish the maps i DO have, and just sent it out.
I blame school and work, and my other previous dedications.

Posted 9 years ago2010-12-18 19:00:38 UTC Post #288029
What 5 days! I got work to turn in this week... :/
Posted 9 years ago2010-12-18 19:23:10 UTC Post #288030
I'm not saying i can't finish, It just wont be as complete as i would like. I.E. I have to make some cut-backs.

Frankly I would be surprised if ANYONE planned this properly, I sliced my original layout right in half to make do. A de_map becomes a fy_map just like that I guess.

It's 'cause we're all so friggin cocky :P
Posted 9 years ago2010-12-19 05:43:45 UTC Post #288034
Yep, and after 15 days of not being able to map I'm forced to box up what I've already created and call it my map xD.

Okay, so I've gotten two release candidates set up; an 8.14mb 7z file, and a 12.2 ZIP file. I'm looking into making sure everything will be openable for the judges, but here's quick rundown of the entry;
  • Readme
  • Mod format using HL2 code and content
  • Custom models by other people- I double checked I could redistribute them under their creative commons licenses, and I've credited them.
Is all that acceptable? Also wikipedia says that Winrar can open .7z files, so I guess that's what I'll be uploading, for bandwidth's sake. As long as you guys are running a recent version everything should be OK.
I'll upload in the morning. Good luck to the other entrants.

I am pretty sure I will be loosing but since judges comment on all the entries, I figured, why not.
Posted 9 years ago2010-12-22 02:52:02 UTC Post #288082
Well, you never know how many entries there are. I once won second place in a competition with what was basically a joke entry because there were only two entries.
Penguinboy PenguinboyHaha, I died again!

I lol'd. I'm putting my stuff in folders now. Gonna fix a few tiny bugs and test it with mah friend, then submit it. I've made a small (but extremely detailed, and I'm not just saying that) cs 1.6 map. Works for steam and non-steam, with default cs textures.

Noo Tetsu0! From now on you still have 25 hours to submit the entry! That's one whole day + 1 hour! If you can't finish the project off, at least you can still enter the competition with what you have already made in this small amount of time, there is no need to let all the project go to waste just because you weren't able to add the finishing touches... Hey, even my map was supposed to be 2x bigger, but I rarely had any time to map this month, with all the school and other occupations and even my hammer not working for half of the competition, I still entered with this small-ass map and hope to win :P.

No skals you dont understand. What I have now has nothing to do with anything historic. the third map ties it all together. and I have a bunch of audio recorded that I needed to import into faceposer and add scripts too. I have a full time job, so I get to bed early and work for 9 hours. by the time I get home tomorrow I will have 1 hour to do HDR full compiles on 2 maps, add more camera sequences, script it, test it, add a WHOLE NEW MAP, and put it together in a download friendly folder structure. it's logistically impossible.
I do appreciate how much you want me to enter. it gives me the warm fuzzy feeling inside that I'm wanted and my work is appreciated. but too often it's unfinished and unpolished. I'm tired of handing in half assed work. I'd rather not post anything.

Maybe.
I always say i will but i probably wont.
Might just let it die and publish it in the unfinished vault.

EDIT

yeah i'm just completing what i have, and i'll toss it in the vault in a few minutes.
