Then may the best person win. I know your level is better than mine, but we can at least try, no?

my money's on the "bonus" being levels made by the judges themselves

interesting. does that mean that the top 5 are chosen independently of the scores? example if my score puts me in second but you all know i deserve first you'll change it?

i hope i win (but ill settle for beating idol ;) )

I don't think I've done so but I just hope the judges had a good time with my level.
I want to believe that I won, but that's probably a false hope.

My level is too experimental for me to really guess where I placed but I kind of expect to land in the 50s. I know I can't expect to win, so this time, I'll just be happy seeing what all people came up with!

I really couldn't even compete at all with my entry. It was good FG graphics and good ASM, but backgrounds and music were barely even touched (not custom) so I expect pretty dang low off that alone. Enough to be in the bottom rung? Eh, I expect to make it to below half. May the best person win irregardless!

Man, you haven't played any other entries LOL

Also, 50% of your points come from the fun factor, and another 17% from creativity. 8% is from the difficulty curve. 8% is from functionality. Music and backgrounds, which are a small portion of the remaining 17%, are about the last thing I would worry about.

EDIT, ALTHOUGH NO ONE PROBABLY CARES SINCE THIS POST IS KIND OF OLD: Your level is unplayable LunarNeedle. The intro screen doesn't have a "display message 1" in it.

I'm just hoping my level is playable and inoffensive. Because I couldn't play it... at all. So I can count winning out of the picture easily. I just hope I'm out of the garbage tier.
I am prone to almost everything... except spontaneous violence.

I have been super quiet on the subject of my level's existence, because it is not good. I just hope I placed like at all, and wasn't thrown out for being even worse than garbage tier!
Woah.

I don't really watch raocow these days unless he's playing smw hacks so it is actually exciting [ed: honestly] for it be raocow season again. I look forward to my level placing somewhere and there being some opinions about it.

I may as well mention my favourite levels
ft029: one exit had nothing to do with the key, but it doesn't matter very much -- excellent vanilla level of the bizarre sort that I love.

lazy: there were some obstacles that seemed rather too intricate if you had a power-up (thwomp + urchin, keys + ball) but this is a mere quibble -- the level looks fantastic is a marvellous spin on my box-derived disaster.

yogui: (I believe, along with Rextep and myself, the joint-holder of the title of MaGL's Most Enthusiastic Competitor) a typically weird/fun level from the master of such levels. The counting part I don't approve of (you can game over there, and if you've collected lives assiduously throughout nothing will matter at the final choice).

funny how

-2 of your 3 "favorites" are based on your own levels
-the other one uses a piece of music also used in your own level (eh, this argument isn't very good but it's still worth mentioning)

whoops, looks like you forgot one! Understandable, mine's so good you probably just assumed it was a retail game when you played it.

i didn't play all the levels, but i have also a favorites list:
fausthieb - nice detail and little secrets, the gimmick was well used in quantity
gameguy888 - very mazy, but not too mazy, excellent use of switch-blocks
frozenquills - very solid level, has a nice "Yoshi Island 1" feeling, clever use of switch-blocks

tbh i only played lazy's and idol's (and the beginning of morsels but that thwimp was getting on my nerves so i stopped :oops: ), and i enjoyed both of them. I found Lazy's very intersting because it almost felt like a puzzle game kind of design. rather than being a platformer with a gimmick influencing the design it felt very strictly gimmick oriented, segmented on a screen-by-screen basis exploring the gimmick in as many ways as possible. I hope im explaining this right, it's a little complicated to get at, but it was a ver different approach to level design, for me at least. idols was ok i guess.

very very excited to see raocow play my entry. like the kind of excited where you get all giddy. i just wish i didn't have to wait 70 days to see my entry! (hopefully much less if he doubles up on the shorter entries)
