Well, this is the third "hacking" contest (we've progressed past that, right?). Last time I admit was a disaster. I made it rather large, not expecting the eventual control of my life that my parents would exert over me. Now that I am free from that, I have the ability to do as I please with this contest, although the judging part will be on a much smaller scale.

PRIZES

As always, there are prizes for the best trophy. This will be done better this time with a banner given to the winner of each one. We don't have someone to do the art for this yet, but if worse comes to worst, I will have plenty of time to do so.

???? Zone Trophy - ???? is the name of your choice! This award goes to the grand prize winner!
Hidden Palace Trophy – First place
Dust Hill Trophy – Second place
Wood Trophy – third place
Genocide City Trophy – think you have a hard game or level? This award goes to the hardest game or level
Amy Trophy – this goes to the prettiest hack
Rainbow Trophy – this goes to the best palette hack
Soda Trophy – this goes to the best sprite hack (get it? Soda… Sprite… *shot*)
Lava Reef Trophy – this goes to the longest level hack
Green Hill Trophy – this goes to the level or game that plays most like a Sonic level or game
Labyrinth Trophy – most confusing level
Hill Top Trophy – least creative level design
1337!!! Trophy – worst Sonic hack
2337!!! Trophy – grand prize winner of the worst Sonic hack… just try and make my eyes bleed
Casinopolis Trophy – the game I can get the most rings or highest score
1000101 Trophy – best technical hack
Windy Valley Trophy – best art hack
Chute Trophy – best Sonic 2 SS hack
Sphere Trophy – best Sonic 3 SS hack
Maze Trophy – best Sonic 1 SS hack
Mini Trophy - best Sonic Advanced hack
Shadow Trophy – best Hentai-based hack
WTF?! Trophy – most unique hack
Level Up Trophy - best modified engine hack


RULES

1) You will have until 12:00 AM May 19 to get all of your hacks into me.
2) This time around, I will prefer an e-mailed ROM, however I will take IPS and savestates as well given accurate documentation
3) There are no limits on editors. Use as many as you want.
4) New Trophy’s may be added on during the contest
5) Entries may be sent in for any console, though you'll have to tell me what it is. REMEMBER THIS. I don't care if it's Atari, it counts ~.^
6) You may reach me at [email protected] for questions and for sending hacks.
7) The entry must be sent in as the following:

Name / Alias:
Name of Hack:
E-mail:

If you provide me a link IN THIS TOPIC, I will download your entry… just make sure it ISN’T BROKEN.
9) If you update your hack after you’ve sent me it, send me the new version. You will not be penalized.
10) I may add new rules at any time. Check this often.

OTHER

Mustapha and I will be judging. All hacks sent to me will be forwarded to him. Anyhow, start sending in those hacks or giving me links and good luck! The due date is on May 19, 2005 23:59:59 and the results will be released within a month of the due date. No late entries will be accepted unless I've been notified ahead of time... at which point we can come to an agreement. Good luck!

Well, the best is to take the time to make things, then I don't care about this new contest.
Maybe next time with my new release.

Good luck for all the hackers anyway.

I'd submit something, but I really haven't the time. Try putting these in holidays rather than at awkward times midterm.

A good moment should be at the end of the Summer holidays, in August or September, IMO.
