    My computer can handle Generations with flying colours and I would be more than honoured to see some hacks of that game grace my screen. There's simply so much potential there.

    Hopefully, I'll have this thing figured out by the deadline.

    Just to let everyone know that we have a month to go until the Deadline of Saturday July 20th! The deadline for updates will be Saturday July 27th so if you enter something you feel to be incomplete, you have a week to get stuff sorted.

    Just like last year, the Contest Week will run alongside SAGE which will take place during August 6th - 12th this year. The schedule for the Hacking Contest events will be released once it has been finalised with the SAGE staff, although the main events will be the public evaluation and results show at the end of the week.

    So yeah, get stuff submitted, let's have a good contest this year!

    I apologise about this, a silly mistake was made when making the deadlines. Because of that, the deadlines have been altered by a day as the threads were posted that the deadlines were on Saturdays.

    The submissions deadline is now Saturday 21st July.
    The updates deadline is now Saturday 28th July.

    Submitted the demo of my game. Only a year later than I expected to release the demo since I got distracted with other homebrews, hacks, and research.

    E-mailed my submission. Should any extra notes or stipulations be made if another person gave large assistance to the project?

    It is worth crediting the people who were involved with this project. If a judge had provided significant assistance then said judge would be barred from judging the entry.

    I have your submission, but feel free to send in an updated entry with your additional information.

    You're in the "Special Thanks" in my hack. Does that mean you're barred from judging my hack?

    Nothing is in the hack now from myself so I think it can slide.

    If I wanted to update our Hack, can't I just update the relevant files? Because honestly all I have to update is 7mb out of the 500-600 total. :v:

    I have no problem in having to reupdate a new pack, but my upload speed kinda sucks.

    Just state what files are to be replaced and that will be fine.

    Do I have to reupload the same hack with a new entry form, or can I just tell you here who helped with the hack? (If the latter, then it was Tiddles, ChelseaCatGirl and Gsuki)

    That is fine. It's always good to credit people who helped with your hack in some way, you can't leave them out, it's not fair.

    I know, that's why I wanted to ask. Though admitedly if I was to mention everyone who technically helped with this project, we could be here for quite a while. :P

    So when it says:
    [ ] Sprite Edits

    Does it mean sprite art edits or change to the code of the sprite?

    Edit: Eh whatever. I sent my submissions. Still have to work on one to be presentable to what I have planned, though. I just needed to enter. So good thing you can update after today.

    Looking good so far, got a fair load of Generations mods too.

    Hope ColinC10 put something forward. I always love how he keeps quiet all year and just gets shit done! No pomp and ceremony, just a great new experience at your fingertips out of the blue.
