    I think I'll be able to have something submitted. It won't be nearly what I originally planned, but suffices to say I think it should blow everyone away... hopefully >_> <_<

    Well, as far as your hack running on hardware, you only need to be concerned with that for my hardware award (and only for ROMs 2MB or less, of course). The rest of the contest is unconcerned with how the ROM runs on hardware.

    Technical achievements alone only get you so far. If it has anything to do with the ROM you sent me, then you should use the rest of the time until the deadline to really spiff that up.

    Thus the usage of the word 'hopefully' :P Right now I'm working on technical stuff, but once I finish my editor (god I hope I do), I can FINALLY show off whatever design skills I have. It might not be that great, but I'll never know until I try.

    Also, I forgot to say - if anyone with a Tototek cart wishes to either take over my award, or assist me in judging, then hacks larger than 2MB can also be submitted for this award.

    LocalH how could you forget my beloved Double Pro Fighter? :(

    I'll happily help out with the judging, I love critiquing stuff :D

    Cool, I hope to make my hack as compatible with the hardware as I can. :(

    I forget, did you ever begin using a 60Hz system? Because if so, that's absolutely great. If not, then perhaps we can have two facets of the same award - one for PAL and one for NTSC (just in case there is something that causes a hack to run on one and not the other).

    If you're running 60Hz, then feel free to take over the whole judging process if you'd like, especially since you can test large ROMs.

    I've got a tototek and a Nomad. So yeah, if Jim can't cover 60 hz 4 MB testing, I can help =P

    Yeah I have an import SEGA Genesis, so I can easily take over the whole judging process, and am happy to do so :( Also as I have a TV tuner card I can take screencaps from hardware if they are needed for some reason.

    I think I better get moving on this now. I've got to finish 2 layouts and some art off before I can even consider entering.

    and his E-mail adress is Eggyhed [ a+ ] aol [d0+] com.

    Spam and you die. That is all.

    </shitty 3rd person anouncement>

    EDIT: Chances are extremely high that I won't be entering StH:DX. It's nowhere near good/finished.

    Just apply the IPS to a clean US Sonic Advance Rom. It features New Title Cards, a bit of new art, changes in a few palettes...

    Is there a way that I can become a pre-tester for some or a few people to sugest a few things to make there hack beter, unless Samantha thinks that would be cheating, then I'll go crawl back into my dark corner. :P

    I think everyone entering already has testers and the like, just wait until the roms are all released for the contest and play them then.

    Notes: Press B at the title screen for Metal Sonic (you'll hear a ring sound). The only levels changed are MZ, LZ, and SYZ, and of them only MZ is fully complete. LZ and SYZ both have 1 act done.

    S65, that thing's glitchy as hell. And I'm talking about NEW STUFZ.
