    Working on my art!
    I experienced two crashes. One was after act 1 of the first level oddly enough, where the screen faded to black and just never came back. The other was after the dark forest (or whatever the wood zone esq level was called) act 2 boss, where it crashed as the boss exploded. Oddly one of the explosion graphics loaded an 'E' character, not sure why.

    Am I incapable of playing the Heroes mod loader? Apparently .NET 4.7 framework is incompatible with windows 8 for some reason. I guess all I was real interested in was the physics swapping (not that I can be sure it would improve the control itself anyway), but I'm kinda bummed if I have to get rid of my OS to do it.

    That's not a defense of windows 8, I just hate the amount of effort it would take and the stuff that'd probably break as a result.

    Just like last year, we want YOUR feedback on this year's Contest Week as well as providing suggestions on what we can look at for next year.

    This year, we have had a rather positive Contest Week that has been a complete 180 from last year, not to mention how we have had little issues with the website, but of course we want your opinions.

    Please complete the following form; we will have the form open for a few weeks so if you don't have time to do it right now, please do it when you can.

    If you have completed this form before the Contest Week has ended, don't forget the Results Show will take place on Sunday 26th November on MegaGWolf's Channel at 8pm GMT / 3pm EST / 12pm PST! AntDude will be streaming on Saturday at 7pm GMT / 2pm EST / 11am PST too so don't miss that either.

    Also don't forget to cast your Community Trophy votes before the end of Saturday 25th November at Midnight EST. All you need to do is sign up for an account at and go to the entries you want to vote for to cast your votes. No verification is required so you should not have an issue casting your votes.

    Thanks for being a part of the Contest Week this year, it is very much appreciated!
