Well, when to have RaNGE depends on the condition of other people. If most of them are up to another contest to judge / participate, then someone makes a RaNGE.

I'll put myself down as a big "MAYBE" on participating in the contest, as I'm not sure if I'll have the time or motivation to work on an entry.  But if I can't participate, then I will definitely be judging.

Woop, I'm in.
I hope to not create QUITE as much of a disaster this time.

Might bring back Undead Minoriko. Many souls shall be harvested.
Komachi will probably work better for my idea.

Count me in with Koishi!

Quote
* Patterns are very important, of course, but be sure to balance sounds and graphics properly.
* Any character can be chosen, but since this is about Halloween, please make spooky-based spells.
So the priority was like
pattern
sound and graphic
spooky-based
Am I right?

Also, is it possible to use more than one character as like a minor support inside the script?
Like Yukari and Ran, or Ran and Chen, or maybe Prismrivers

Man, I have the greatest idea, but I most likely won't be able to actually do something. Sad face. (Though I would definitely share my idea for those who want to hear it!) Good luck to all entrants!

No, they aren't. Sorry mate, but you've got to choose canon Touhou characters.

Yes, patterns, sound and graphics and spooky-based. And yes, it's possible to have a boss battle with multiple characters.

Any links to general rules, for those who are first time here and don't know what "RaNGE" is?

RaNGE is a contest where you make danmaku "scripts" (just saying danmaku "scripts" because there's no engine restriction on this RaNGE) and compete with other people for the victory. If you make a great script, you have more chances to win, or be on the top 10 (obviously). I don't have that much to say about RaNGE because this is the first time I participate too (but this is the second RaNGE I presenciate, though, so I know a bit of what to do). :V

The general rules are the rules listed on the main post.

Although DLS basically explained it, I'll just go into slightly more detail.

In Rika and Nitori's Garage Experiments, there will occasionally be contests, as seen in the Info/FAQ thread. In these contests, which are hosted by a denizen of RaNGE, the theme can vary depending on time of year, the person doing it, etc.

Generally speaking, contests marketed as official 'RaNGE' contests already have a number of guaranteed participants at startup and tend to have a very specific base set of unwritten rules, including but not limited to:
-There is a requirement for minimum and/or maximum number of attacks
-Touhou characters are required (depending on the theme)
-All attacks must be in-character (depending on the theme)
-The overall aesthetic of your script must fit with the theme of the contest
-Danmaku quality is the most important aspect of your script
etc.

Anyone can host a contest here, but there is definitely a responsibility aspect that is required of all hosts. Hosts are allowed to participate in their own contests. The main job of the host, once they have decided to make a contest, is to select the judges and deadlines, address participant concerns, make sure rules and guidelines are clear, and, at the end, make sure that the judges are doing their job.

Just a friendly reminder; "claiming" someone doesn't actually mean anything. Two people can make the same character, and you can always go back and change your mind. As long as you don't pick Sumireko.

Changed dealine to October 31st because it's kind of pointless to make a halloween script 1 week after Halloween.

Yamame-san shot some webbing around and the whole thread became sticky. Thanks Yamame-san!

Just want to note indeed the "Claiming" thing as mentioned above. Best to avoid that word usage to prevent confusion among people participating. We don't want the: "Oh, already taken then no need for me to join" type of thoughts.

Gl to the contestants.  :D

Personally, I feel that you wouldn't be taken seriously enough. But if the judges beg to differ, then sure, why not. As long as the script doesn't have three survival rave spells in a row you should be fine.
