Since it's kinda obvious what that 'one hack [you] won't bother mentioning' is, I'd like to clarify a few things: I love this hack, but having contributed to it directly, I was disqualified from judging it. Were it up to me, I'd have voted it for the D.A. Garden Trophy, and maybe the Dust Hill one too. But you know what? Maybe that's because of bias. I honestly felt a little bad voting for Sonic Bash v2, knowing I'd been a playtester previously, and consider its maker, redhotsonic, a closer friend than many others in the scene. I can see why I was disqualified from voting on this hack (and why I probably should have been disqualified from voting on Sonic Bash), and as it turns out, I wasn't the only judge with this problem: KEH, being a project with so many contributors, is simply at greater risk of this problem occurring. Maybe this wouldn't have been too big a problem if we had more judges, but I don't think disqualification issues alone are what kept this hack from getting some trophies: The other issue with this hack is that it was entered two years in a row, the second time with few notable differences. Yes, there's two-player, yes there's a new menu, yes there's a sexy improved sound driver, yes there's more music, and yes there's a Special Surprise™, but... they're just so... minor that they barely count. Should a resubmission like this be judged as a whole new hack, or as an update? Could MarkeyJester resubmit The Next Level, year after year, and win the Hidden Palace Trophy time and time again, or should he be told to come back with something more? I think the answer's obvious. Yes, that goes in the face of what I said about giving this hack the Dust Hill trophy, but like I said, working on this hack has made me biased. Maybe this should've gotten an honourable mention for the Azure Lake Trophy, as 2-player is a great new feature, but again, I can't control that.
