MaGLX3 - Composers STILL wanted!!!

Postby Sturg » 1 year ago

Update + Judge Results Here!

I still need composers! Anybody willing to make music for this project needs to contact me!

Old Post:
WHOA IT'S TIME...

Image

After a bit of a stall, we can get this contest sort of moving along! I've got some interesting things planned for this contest, and I'm excited to share them all with y'all! Of course, I'm gonna need a couple of peeps to help with this (potentially big) project!

So, without further ado, here's what I'm going to need:


Contest Judges!

Obviously, judges are kinda important for a contest, so this is priority one right here!

This time around, however, people who are willing and/or wanting to judge for MaGLX3 are going to need to play-test and judge a couple sample levels that I have prepared. This is so I can see everyone's judging style and better establish a good idea of who I want to pick for judges.
Applying is fairly simple!

  1. Download the MaGLX3 Judge Audition Packet and follow the instructions in the READ ME.txt
  2. Play through each level
  3. Judge each level
  4. Fill out the sign-up form included in the packet
  5. Send your results to me via PM, E-mail, or through Discord.
Some important notes:

-Play these levels with the SMBX 2.0 engine that is included with the packet!!!
Otherwise, there's a possibility some levels won't work properly!
-Start each level as SMALL MARIO unless otherwise specified!


And, uhhh, that's pretty much it really! There's a little more detail inside the packet, including the rubric, level gimmicks, etc.

All judge applications will be due on AUGUST 7th, 11:59pm MST!! So make sure to get them in by then!

If anybody has questions about the gimmick, judging, or anything else! Please feel free to message me! Same goes for if any of the levels appear to be broken or otherwise!!!

HUB Designers!

Similarly to previous contests, there will be an episode/game/HUB thingamajig for this contest! Shocking!

This time around, I'd like to get the episode out for everyone at the time the LP starts so that everyone may enjoy it! I'll need some determined folks to help formulate a pretty rad game out of the contest levels in a decent amount of time.

How to apply:

  1. Download the HUB Designer Sign Up Form and fill it out.
  2. Send it to me through PM or E-mail.
All designer applications will be due on AUGUST 7th, 11:59pm MST!!

Easy as that!!!

Composers!

Along with designers for the HUB, I would also like to ask for musical composers that are willing to help make a custom soundtrack for the MaGLX3 HUB. Again, music for the HUB, and nothing that will replace the default SMBX music.
How to apply:

  1. Create a 15-30 second jingle indicating that you are capable of making music. You are free to do however you please with this composition.
  2. Export and send the audio file to me via PM or E-mail.
I'd like to get as many as I can for this job, so feel free to apply if you know you're alright with composing!!!


That all about covers it for now! So if you're interested in any of these positions, please follow the instructions and send stuff to me!!!

Worth noting: if you're testing these from the editor, use the "LunaTester" option to play in SMBX, not the "Test <alpha>" option. It took me a little while to realize this, but some things won't work properly if you test with the alpha and this will probably give you a worse impression of the levels.

Yeah, if you press F5, it shortcuts its way to that.

How did I not notice how new the thread was? I have not been here in two weeks and the thread is new. Lucky me that I did not miss it.

I think judging would be too strenuous for me, but I'd be happy to test stages for anyone who'd like me to.

I figure I gotta get over my unreasonable aversion to SMBX 2.0 sooner or later.

Why do I have a feeling not many will sign up to judge, just because not many people have the patience to play every level.

Because playing levels at the calibur of MaGLX is really difficult?

Honestly, the levels are worth playing even if you have no intention of being a judge. I hope they're included in the MAGLX3 compilation somewhere.

Probably not. Main reason being that I don't want to clutter up the contest episode with levels that stray from everyone else's submitted levels i.e. the contest.

Theoretical idea: You have six judges, and every level is drawn three judges randomly, which means that every judge has to do only approximately half of the levels.

Inconsistent results. You'll get a lot of "fuck i got unlucky with the judges". I'd prefer the longer judging phase.

Personally, if I get the judge position I want to judge every level. That's kinda the point. And beyond the inconsistency issue, even with only doing half the submissions you might still have a lot of work on your plate. Half of MaglX2 is basically MaglX1. =P We'll need to see what the numbers look like this time but I'm sure the contest will be big as usual.

How many judge applications are there thus far? Thought the primary issue is the detorrent beforehand that it's such a big workload.

Umm, I wrote in my sign up sheet that I wanted break out of my shell. So, I should post more. I'm one of the few who signed up to be a judge. It's nice to meet you.
I can art and sprite. Don't worry about it.

I ain't sayin' who has or hasn't, but just know that the competition is pretty good and it's making it real hard to choose at this current point in time.

One week left y'all!!! If you've had any inclination to be a judge/HUB designer, make sure to turn your sign-up stuff in soon!

As of now, I've gotten 4 people wanting to help with the music. While that is pretty decent, I'd like to ask for more. So I encourage anybody who has prior composition experience to feel free and message me, as I could use all the help I get with the music!!!

I kind of feel like I should, but I also know how much of a terrible procrastinator I can be when it comes to music.
