Sonic 2 Omochao Edition. God help us all.
...Do all of these contests have contestants you never expect to see? Some of the names in that list... best of luck anyways. I'm looking forward to the technically impressive hacks!
This is the result of 2 things:
1) This includes members from SSRG as well. Seeing as the contest is open to Sonic Retro and SSRG, some of these may be members of one and not the other.
2) Some people aren't very active with posting or forum interaction but will submit something to the contest anyway. They may be working on something quietly in the background and keeping that progress away from the public for some reason or another. You'd be surprised at how many people do this.
Umm, one of my hacks is marked as incomplete when I marked it as complete. I don't know why, strange things seem to happen when you go on vacation...
If somebody could set it to complete, I'd be pretty thankful. It's called "Neo Sonic the Hedgehog".
(If you need the download link for some reason, shoot a PM my way.)
Already had another hack like that, so I'm sure that can be fixed.
Wow, thanks for fixing it!
I can recognize very few of these names. Hence I can only say I don't expect much good stuff, but it wouldn't be fair to outright assume it. I am looking forward to checking them out.
I assume it is StH: Extend---Oh, this has been done to death already.
Anyway, really hoping for a hack of Sonic 4 which finally makes it feel Classic. If I can get that, I won't need Christmas presents for a decade.
You never know, one of them might be the next ColinC10. Relatively unknown to start with, quite the reputation now.
Man, reading the list of hacks, I'm actually kind of disappointed. I was hoping to see an update to a popular hack, like The S Factor, or something like that.
Oh well, Metal Sonic Hyperdrive is fun, Big's Fishing Derby just might win the Froggy Trophy, and Sonic the Very Useful Engine and Sonic the Hedgehog: Egg on Toast Edition sound humorous.
There are a few other hacks I see that I'm interested in checking out, so I guess I'll just have to see...
I would just like to step in and offer my apologies. Due to circumstances beyond my control, I won't be able to judge this year's contest. Nothing bad has happened or anything, but I just have less time to devote to anything at the moment.
Good luck to all participants.
It's fine. A replacement judge has been recruited and will be posting later about it. Let's just say this person used to be a judge before.
So I was minding my own business when someone sent me this video.
Somehow this guy got a hand on one of the earliest revisions of my hack and claims that me as a "special friend" gave it to him.
What is more insulting is that he removed a comment about how we (me and PTSquirrel) wanted this video and link to be removed along with asking for the source.
I wouldn't mind a bit of advertisement if it wasn't the fact that it had to be BlueCore of all people to not only steal it, but lie about who provided it to him.
So from what I gathered, there is a hole in the download system of SHC2014 that allows you to download any hack you want, provided its not partial-private or a mod (since they are obviously provided with a third party link).
I think it would be advisable to disable that somehow so this doesn't happen again
I just let him have it in the comments section... such bullshit.
My bad; there was a hole in the system, due to the addition of 2013's entries; I misspelled a variable in the code. Ugh.
I am incredibly sorry about this, but unfortunately there is nothing to be done if they've already downloaded it. Everything goes live on Monday, meaning everyone will have access to them then. I know this has been up since 9th August, but still, it's only had 270 views. He's apparently also already removed the download link.
The good news is that only the public entries were available, not anything else, and that it is patched now and for the forseeable future.
Again, I am incredibly sorry about this happening.
So as of now that link on the video has been removed. I'd like to think that my intervention had something to do with it... as it was deleted AFTER I started getting on his case.
Regardless... justice prevails.
I would like to again apologize for any inconvenience I may have trigger concern this conflict. I had no intention of leaking any unfinished betas without permission. In the future I will make more of an effort to sure I get permission from the true creators. I hope you will forgive any troubles I have caused.
Yep, TGC is covering this. But this year's going to be a bit different:
In a few hours time, the public will be able to download the entries, play them and vote in the Community Trophies. Here are the streams for Day 1 of the Contest Week:
● 11am EDT / 4pm BST until 2pm EDT / 7pm BST - SomecallmeJohnny Stream
● 2pm EDT / 7pm BST until 4pm EDT / 9pm BST - Spanner Stream
● 4pm EDT / 9pm BST until 7pm EDT / 12am BST - MegaGWolf Stream
● 8pm EDT / 1am BST to 9pm EDT / 2am BST - Radio Rev
Is Cinossu going to be around relatively soon? I sent him an important PM and I wanted to make sure he got it ASAP.
