I was just trying to think of the best time for the new deadline. Originally I planned it for New Years Eve. Is is really that much of a problem? Everyone else can still modify their games and stuff if they want to. If I made the deadline too close then a lot of you would probably complain for not having the chance to work on your product. TDC was down on Christmas Eve. You guys have another chance. Be grateful!
(And if TDC crashes on Thursday, I'm not extending the competition again. I want to get it done and dusted.)
I don't think I'll bother organising any more competitions after this one. I certainly don't benefit from it, in fact it just gives me extra work to do, and all I get are moaning and complaints when I try to do the right thing for everyone. It's not really on.
Anyone who already entered can just add more and resubmit their entry. It's not a bad thing. And the site was having problems, so not extending the deadline would have been unfair. Cicry did the right thing.
I imagine its a great deal of work hosting a compo like this one, and with all the flak people are giving, I don't blame Circy for not wanting to host another. It is a shame though.
Well im pretty sure the demo version of jamagic would be fine to view source code in, cause Ive downloaded it, its just a way more complicated layout then mmf or tgf. And im pretty sure (as i just read through the compo's rules again) that it says nothing about having to be "klik" but just that it has to be a clickteam product. And last i checked, jamagic WAS a clickteam product.
Well I agree a bit with Hishnak though. I stayed up really late to finish my entry in time and now we got like 5 days extra. I could make a new game entirely in that time especially since I'm free now over the holidays and I bet alot of people who previously couldn't enter did so.
Also I'm now at my parents house and so I can't access my computer with MMF, if I would have known we would get so much extra time I would have brought my MMF cd.
Extending a day or so would be more appropriate in my book. Well I guess it's not the end of the world.
Knudde(Shab): Well some criticism isn't bad either, so you guys can run an even better comp next year. This year's compo is alot better than last years in my book. For example you have "Christmas Anything Goes" which tells me that you have listened to various crits...
