It's finally time for our 7th Danmakufu contest:
All Hallow's Even 2: Let's make a stage!

That' right, people, it's that time again. Both for a new contest, and for Halloween. Since there was just so much positive feedback in regards to a stage contest, the Powers That Be decided it would be a good idea. This contest has a Halloween theme to it, and for the first time, we're going to make you guys create a whole stage. Enemy design, stage structure, moving backgrounds, you're all gonna have to push your abilities to the limits with this one.

Judging this time around will be much different. This time around we'll have Community Voting. This means that instead of me judging all of your crap, anyone who wants to can play all the scripts, judge each one and give their scores (out of ten) with a short summary to me. I will tally up the scores and determine the winner based on this.



Rules and tips:
  • Scare people. It's Halloween you bastards, be creative. Surprise insta-kills are a bad thing though, don't do that.
  • Stages are recommended to be at least 40 seconds long. This is a contest based on the whole stage, you don't need some piddly thing. In the same way, don't make it too long. I will slap you if it's PCB Stage 4 long.
  • Bosses are recommended to have two nonspells and two spells. You cannot have any more, but you can have less. Having less just means less danmaku funtime for everybody.
  • Midboss is optional. Two nonspells and one spell at max.
  • Work on your background, sound effects and music choices. A good stage (especially a Halloween-centric stage) needs good synergy with its setting and theme; it shouldn't be boring for the player.
  • Any scripts I find with errors popping up are disqualified. If people have trouble extracting it (i.e. you aren't using relative pathnaming or you have some dumb lib\shotsheet thing going on), also disqualified. Has to work out of the box.
  • I discourage giving extra score to an entry with super fandangled shiny graphics. Nice graphics is a great thing to have, but there is a difference between nice and "you didn't really need to make it that shiny". Spend more time on impressive danmaku and stages.
  • Having two difficulties is recommended. Not all people play the same difficulty, so having only one difficulty poorly balanced is a big no-no. It isn't a must, but as your peers are judging you you'll want to be careful with balancing.

  • Anyone can judge the scripts, even if they haven't entered, or even really know anything about danmakufu at all! (although really you should know a bit hopefully) Obviously, nobody can judge their own script.
  • All your votes will be pruned through by yours truly. You should have solid reasons for giving someone a certain score, and if it looks as if there's a bias involved I'll call you out on it / throw it out.



All scripts must be submitted by 11:59:59 PST (GMT-8), October 31. This means you have a whole two and a half weeks to work on this. Entries two seconds late will be accepted.
All judgments must be submitted by 11:59:59 PST, November 6. Preferably much sooner.


Go.

It's my fault, isn't it? The fact that we're getting a Stage contest. Bah, back then I had no idea what a pain that stuff is.
We'll see if I join or not based on if I can figure out how to make a basic Stage.

I am curious what results we are going to get.

SPOILER : Also I am extremely biased in this contest when I am going to vote. Some elements will increase my scoring, and some will decrease. But which will do what? Who knows.

Good luck all. (  '.')b

It's hard to get holidays that absolutely everybody celebrates, so we just roll with ones that most people at least know about.

Alright, cool. I'm hoping we wind up doing a Halloween-themed contest every year, both for tradition and because it's a subject with a lot of creative potential.

Ahhhh, where am I gonna find time to do this though? :ohdear:

Hmm... I don't know if I'll have enough time to make an entry for this contest, unless I put my current programming project on hold, which is most definitely probably a really bad idea.

From reading the reviews on last year's contest, I assume the script needs to have pumpkins and candies and stuff instead of just ... something scary ?

« Reply #19 on: October 14, 2010, 12:59:44 AM »
The rules were kinda vague last time. Well it was the first contest after all. Also this time scripts are peer reviewed so while the criteria for what might make a script more halloweenish may vary from person to person, overall it should even out so that you'll still get marks as long as your script is relevant to Halloween in some way...

...Hopefully :3


I'd just do both to be on the safe side :3

Halloween theme. Creativity. That's pretty much it for the required element, just actually do something related to Halloween. How you do it is up to you, how well it does is up to everyone else.

Yes! Another contest! Another opportunity to go against everyone's works! I can't wait to see the other's scripts! Time to put everything I've learned in action!

If we were to include a Last Spell-type card, with requirements to see, would that count against the 2SC limit?

You... really don't need to do that. It would still count against the limit if you did though. Also to note, I discourage survival cards in general for this contest. It isn't forbidden, but a survival card isn't really something that belongs in such a short boss fight anyways.

This makes me wonder if it's possible to make a CAVE- style stage in danmakufu.
wellllllllll

Has to work with most characters, sry. And by most I mean characters without fancy schmancy shitgiggles that break everything they weren't intended for.

Wow, it sounds like a lot of fun, maybe I'll try (still have to finish learning danmakufu though  :V).

So, I was wondering, is it possible to include a certain :P as a deathfairy instead of a midboss or boss? I have already planned those spots for different characters, and I wanted to include her in my script because she's scary., so... can I?

I'm debating whether or not to try making something for this. On one hand, whatever I do can't be any worse than what I did for the first contest, but on the other, I haven't touched Danmakufu in months, and...creativity required? That's going to be a hard prerequisite for me to meet.

Regardless, I'm interested in seeing how this contest turns out.

Wait so we're not allowed to limit the players to the defaults or just Marisa something like that?

Limiting it to the defaults will fulfill those requirements, silly. I don't want the script to be designed for some random player. Just saying that having a script that requires the player to shoot backwards (DS) or something would be bad.
