Thread: Massassi Level Pack Contest 6 - JK Anniversary Edition (Prize Pool: $611.00)

  1. #1

    Massassi Level Pack Contest 6 - JK Anniversary Edition (Prize Pool: $611.00)

    The Rules:

    • The Level Pack will consist of 4 SP levels.
    • You may submit 1 (one) SP Jedi Knight level. You are allowed to have a package of levels, as long as they are all one continuous story (like TODOA).
    • The due date is Sunday, September 30th, 2012, 11:59PM EST.
    • Voting will begin the following day, and end on Sunday, October 7th, 2012.
    • Levels must follow the standard submission guidelines, except for the directions below. I reserve the right to disqualify any submission that has not followed the rules.
    • NEW RULE: You may use thing/adjoin/etc patches for your levels, but you must state the requirements in the level description. Also please state if you use 16-bit mats.
    • NEW RULE: You make work as a team. All people on the team will count as their 1 SP level (so you cannot submit another in addition to the team submission). Prize winnings, if any, will be split evenly among the team.


    The Prize:

    The prize amount is decided by YOU ALL. I will be putting $10 in (sorry, I'm poor), but beyond that, it's up to you all. Send monies to coolmatt@sorrowind.net (yes, "coolmatt", that is not a typo) on PayPal with a note stating it is for the MLP Prize Pool. Include your forum username so I know who you are! Prize money will be split 70%/20%/10%. I will update this thread with the running total. Winners may take the money or have it placed in the Massassi Charity Pool for the end of the year.

    Judging:

    The judges will be anyone who donates to the prize pool, in addition to the people who have submitted to the contest. Those who have submitted to the contest cannot vote for their own submissions.

    This may be subject to change, but no matter what, if you donate to the prize pool, you will be allowed to judge.

    Submissions:

    • Submit all levels to this email address: mlpcontest@sorrowind.net
    • Submissions MUST follow submission guidelines like any other level. (Screenshots, zipped, readme file, etc)
    • Attach the file if it is smaller than 5MB. If it is larger, upload it somewhere and link to it in the email. Dropbox is really good for this.
    • STATE WHETHER: you use 16-bit maps, or used the adjoin/thing limit removals. Failure to include this in the description is liability for rejection.
    • Include your forum username! If I don't know your username, you won't be added to the contest.
    • If I do not respond to your submission email within 3 (three) days, PM me on the forums. It likely means I didn't receive it.

    Prize Pool:

    ​$611.00


    Current Judges:

    EAH_Triscuit
    Lord_Grismath
    JediKirby
    Andrew_L
    Zloc_Vergo
    GHORG
    Emon
    Elmo

    Don't forget to toss some money in the pot folks, especially if you want to judge. A sweeter pot will motivate more people to actually finish some levels.

    edit 2: this is way easier than it was when I was 15

    Regardless, I think it's been 8 years since Grismath has posted here? Welcome back.
    He said Kedri, an old inside joke about how you are supposed to give Kedri a nickel every time x happens (I forgot what x was).

    I am going to be adding to the pot, since I was left in charge of jdkf2.net and #jk on gamesurge I should be. I will be adding a generous amount since I love JK, and to this day its my favorite game of all time.
    If you want to play JK join the JK Chat on IRC @ irc.gamesurge.net Channel #jk I am the new Admin there! (JKLE_Cougar)

    Finally got JK working again and have been tinkering around in ZED. I don't know how my 14 year old self managed to do half of the stuff I did. This is... difficult.

    And might you be participating? Have you ever made a SP level before btw (not doubting your ability; just curious)?

    It's certainly not like riding a bicycle, is it? I spent a ****ing hour just trying to re-memorize the keyboard shortcuts, which was made even more difficult because I'm using a Mac keyboard. I won't even go in to the irritation that's trying to install Windows 7 via Boot Camp under Lion even before trying to install JKDF2 & JED/ZED. I'm ready to shoot myself in the ****ing face & I haven't even cleaved a sector yet.

    I'm sure the big thing is that your 14 year old self was ravenous and persistent as **** when it came to figuring that stuff out. When I think back on how quickly I picked up new software like Radiant or whatever back in the day, I'm always kind of impressed. You could just poke around without succeeding for a much longer time before becoming frustrated, if that ever happened at all.

    Are you running Windows via Boot Camp or virtualization? I had JKDF2 running decently under VirtualBox at one time but was unable to smooth things over this time around.

    I didn't even have to spend any time reacquainting myself with the shortcuts. c, ctrl-drag, del, x, ctrl-x, shift-x, a, shift-s, space, shift-1-3, f9, f12, n, ins, ctrl-c/ctrl-v/ctrl-z, s, t, f, e, v, it's all still.. there.. like it never left. eerie

    oh and who could forget the ever-famous ; and '
    and . and ,
    and ctrl-. and ctrl-,
    and shift-ctrl-/

    oh yeah and f10 every 30 seconds

    A lot of it is still there. Unfortunately, every 20 minutes or so I will try to do something and not be able to remember how to do it. It took me 15 minutes to figure out how to rotate a sector.

    lol, seems people are split both ways on getting the hang of zed. Normally in this case I'd be doing the same some time in the next couple months, but because it is SP, I might pass & just donate to go be a judge (good idea to build that prize up too Matty). It takes a lot to motivate me to open my JK editor these days. Life definitely keeps all of us busy, especially now that people have jobs and hardly any spare time.

    It's nice that you have the due date set 9 days before JK's 15th anniversary. I always miss out on Oct 9 because it's my birthday as well. (It was meant to be that I was born on that day, I hope you can understand). I don't think you have to worry about having only one participant this time (so I can't take Triscuit's $100 again this time) srsly though, it was a privilege that he offered that "build map" opportunity; with that money, I bought a printer that I still use to this day.

    Good luck on your projects!

    I'm going to give VMware Fusion 2 a shot--I just spent the past 24 hours attempting to get JK working properly in VirtualBox & Parallels with Windows 7 to no avail. I'm getting really tired of switching partitions already & really need to go the virtualization route. I recall running JK in VirtualBox awhile back but now that I think about it, I was probably doing so with XP.

    As far as I can tell JK runs in win7 64 bit JUST FINE if you use -wingui.

    I'm lookin' forward to all you old MP editors making SP maps.

    I'm running JK on windows 7. I have to use -windowsgui. I just followed the tutorial at JKhub and it works fine.

    Anyone got SM_SithLord's contact info? I think he'd be a great applicant for this. Maybe Purgatory with a single player storyline? Yes, I think so.
