As promised, the deadline expired at midnight EST, we are no longer taking submissions for this year's Hacking Contest.

Those that did enter have until the end of Sunday 5th November to polish their entry and fix any bugs. However, we will be checking all submitted entries during this week to make sure that they have a playable build already and that it passes the Quality Control Criteria. If we decide that your entry is not for the Contest this year, you will be emailed about it. This is why unlike previous years, there will not be a list of entries posted until the Updates Deadline.

For those that still want to show off something, there is always the Hack Expo, which gives you all the exposure of the Contest, just without the entry being judged. We still are taking submissions for that up to the end of Sunday 12th November, which as of this post is two weeks away.

If you have a submission to the Hacking Contest, we need a final build submitted by the end of today (Sunday) by Midnight EST. This MUST be uploaded to the site. Any off-site links of ROMs will be manually uploaded to the site at the deadline if they have not been already.

For those who feel that they do not have enough time to finish, you can forfeit your entry from being judged by having it moved to the Hack Expo, which gives you up until the end of Sunday 12th November to finish up (and we are still taking submissions for that by the way). But if you want that done, you need to let us know by the end of today.

The list of Contest submissions will be posted tomorrow, provided that the final quality control checks are complete. If it is not posted on Monday, you know why.

Copypaste from the website:

Just a reminder that we close submissions to the Hack Expo at the end of Sunday 12th November at Midnight EST. Get your submissions and updates in by this deadline.

Make sure that you have everything uploaded and make sure that your entry passes the Quality Control Criteria, as those that don't will be removed altogether. A list of all entries will be put up on Monday provided there aren't any delays with the quality checks, but failing that it will be out during the week.

You will be able to download all Contest and Expo submissions at the Contest Week of Monday 20th to Sunday 26th November. Sign up for an account to be able to vote for the Community Trophies, applicable to Contest entries only.

Hello everyone.

Just want to remind you all that the deadline for the Hack Expo is tonight at Midnight EST, so make sure to get your submissions and updates in before then. Your submission must have a playable build with media to be in the Hack Expo.

It seems that this year there are going to be quite a few interesting hacks, can't wait too play!

Also that SA:DX hack got me confused because I couldn't spot any immediate difference from vanilla SA:DX in that footage.

Yeah, there was a bit of a miscommunication there, redhotsonic didn't know how to properly install the mod and he was pressed for time, so it's just the vanilla game. There's plenty of visual references in the mod's forum thread though.

MegaGWolf is taking a break from his Let's Play channel, but not immediately. He also said he would continue streaming.

Here is the lineup for the Hack Expo. Obviously bear in mind that these entries are not judged and therefore there may be the occasional entry that may not interest you that much or be of a lower quality than the usual standard. Only one entry was thrown out, the rest are good for show. And yes, you may notice a certain entry in this. The fact that we were able to get that in is quite remarkable for the Hack Expo, you should enjoy all the entries on show this year.

Just a YouTube hiatus. But I did say I would come back for this. However, I'm only doing one stream and one stream only, whereas usually I would do a daily stream for SHC. MegaGWolf has also confirmed he is still doing SHC.
