Title: VVVVVV's 10th birthday eVVVVVVent!
Post by: sergio on January 10, 2020, 10:56:16 am
Been a while. For VVVVVV's 10th birthday, I've set up a celebratory event over at Glorious Trainwrecks (https://www.glorioustrainwrecks.com/node/11759)! Let's make levels and stuff over the next couple of weeks? :-*

This is enough to make me seriously consider coming out of retirement...

is this a no-custom-assets one?

I'd support no custom assets for this one. Maybe no internal scripting as well

i think the fancy stuff should be allowed, since this is gonna be exposed to lots of people who don't normally follow custom levels and it'd be fun to show off what's possible

speaking of which, if you're new to custom levels (or haven't participated in a long time) and wanna try making something, Dav999's external editor is a lot more stable and fully featured than the built in editor so it's a nice tool to have: https://tolp.nl/ved/

hey i helped a bit with that

also yeah, im just going to make mine with internal scripting, because for anyone not in the community swapping assets is not going to be fun for them

My own take is 'anything goes', but I appreciate you thinking of others. Another thing to consider is that with the source release, it might be OK to distribute an entire pre-modded version of VVVVVV now?

I definitely think any VVVVVV related thing is fair game - the less rules the better for this :viridian:

actually, I've got a question: what does "Etc/GMT-7" mean? does it mean 7 hours behind GMT? ex. if its 10:00 in GMT, it'd be 3:00 in this time zone?

I have no idea when I set the event to close exactly, so feel free to just assume you have all of January. Glorious Trainwrecks doesn't prevent you from submitting to an event past the deadline.

That makes me feel a LOT better...  I'm also relieved to see some serious submissions at last!

Foiled within sight of the finish line.  Not only is my game bigger than G.T.'s file size limit, but G.T. also forbids external links to mega.nz - it says "Not a valid URL".  What should I do?

Big edit!  I found a solution involving TinyURL.  Not gonna lie though - this musical passage (https://youtu.be/oep5Rude4mQ?t=4952) came to mind.  It also doesn't help that RPG Maker MV's manual contains detailed instructions on using Enigma Virtual Box to package the whole game into one file, despite that doing so PREVENTS SAVING.

The event is complete! Thank you to everyone who took part! :viridian:

Over the course of the next week, I'm going to play everything and prepare a round up post. I'm not really that fussed about deadlines so don't worry if you wanna upload something late or whatever :vermillion: Looking forward to checking everything out!

Is anyone else starting to think, that the round-up post won't be happening?
