Sonic Hacking Contest 2016 It's Happening Again
Posted 05 September 2016 - 01:42 PM
You must be a full member of either Sonic Retro or SSRG to submit, but those who ask a judge beforehand for permission may be granted the opportunity to submit.
Full details for this year's submission process will be posted on September 11th.
EDIT: Wing Fortress Trophy added for best cutscene in a hack. Somehow this trophy always gets neglected when people want it in the contest.

The cutoff has to be manually done and will be done whenever Cinossu wakes up Monday in the BST time zone so get your stuff in this Sunday and remember the additional week for updates.

We are aware of some site issues that need to be fixed. If anyone has been having problems uploading or attaching an external link, please post a comment in your entry's comment area with the URL and it will be manually attached to your entry.

Remember, if you are having issues uploading your entry, attach an external link that will lead to the actual download for now.
If you are unable to add an external link, put it in your entry's comment section and we will manually upload the entry (size permitted) to our server at the end of the updates deadline.

No more new entries can be submitted to the contest. If you didn't enter yet, too late, come back next year.
For those that did, remember that you have the additional week of updates you can make up to the end of Sunday 16th October.

The contest is going great so far, but just a quick head's up! We've come across a couple broken links for hacks that have been submitted. Needless to say, but if they are broken by the time the week grace period is up, your hack will be removed from the contest!!
Just go in there real quick and make sure that your links are working alright. A majority of you all are okay, but we can't be arsed to send everyone PMs right now. We need to be judging instead.
Thanks for your attention and good luck!!
