SMBX Chocolate Contest 2021 - SUBMIT HERE

Post by Enjl »

REPLIES IN THIS THREAD SHOULD EXCLUSIVELY BE LEVEL SUBMISSIONS

RULES THREAD

HOW TO SUBMIT
To submit a level, you leave a reply in this topic with the download link to the level. Please include additional information in the readme for the level, rather than in your post. If you wish to update your submission, edit your post and leave a note in the post notifying of the change.

In order for your level to be scored, the download link must be publically accessible. Levels will be collected by Sancles at the end of the submission period and forwarded to the judges in a package.

I recommend using services such as Google Drive, OneDrive, Dropbox or MEGA to upload your level. Mediafire is a bad choice because of its slow download speeds.

WHAT SHOULD MY SUBMISSION INCLUDE?
- The level file
- Any custom assets (music, sounds, graphics) should be in the level folder (folder with the same name as the level)
-- Avoid renaming your level folder shortly before submission... This tends to break music paths
- A Readme to specify info you think the judges should be aware of should be included in the same folder as the level file
-- Information in this file may include the preferred level name, viable characters, filters, number of exits/stars, credits, and anything else you wish to share. If you're feeling fancy, write a poem!
- Do not include any devkit elements in your submission
- Do not include your username anywhere in your submission
Here is an example:
Image

Please make an attempt to keep the filesize of your music low. Any song larger than 6MB is just a hassle. Making looping OGG music is very easy and usually only takes up 1-3MB, too!

For any questions, please ask in the rules thread, rather than here.

4:30AM the night before the deadline let's gooooo

Herbal Space Program

I had a much nicer and probably better level I've been working on for the entire duration of the contest but I found out two nights ago that literally any other human playing it made it crash and we couldn't figure out how to fix it :V So instead I crunched this one out over the past 32 hours or so, everything but the concept and literally three lines of Lua code from the night I thought of it.

I fuckin' better not win c_c

All The Levels
here's the set of levels given to the judges
if your level has something wrong with it at this point it is either because:
-You included the devkit with your submission
-You modified original devkit files, making your level incompatible
There will be no more changes

if your level is missing entirely then uhh
im an idiot and yell at me

with 50 entries and a total asset folder size of 420MB, the average entry is 8.4MB! compare your own level against that to see how more or less chocolate your level is! ignore that almost all of that size is going to be sounds and music in most cases, we know it is an objective measure of chocolatiness

looking at the folders in the contest, my level is 4th on the highest file siZe. maybe 3rd or 2nd if i didnt edit one music file.
and the highest one is "green green heights" level with ~82MB geeZ. the second is about 35MB.

opening the folder gives 2 music files that about 41MB each. those files has a duration of 30 minutes each. why the hell do you need 1 hour of BGM in a level??? is this a metrovania one???

oh no, they didn't rip two of those 30 minute OST Extended videos off of youtube and import it into their game completely unedited, did they...

call out post for green green heights author. they can't read this because presumably they're over on the smbx forums but i'm calling them out anyway!!

That's exactly what they did. With 2 songs that are from a SNES games, no less, so there's a .spc file for them, too!
I continue to be baffled by the amount of people who don't loop their music even though the feature existed for well over half of SMBX's life at this point.
Future contests will impose file size restrictions for sure.

Heck, as long as your song doesn't have an intro, there are hacks to allow gapless looping of mp3

theres 4 bgm i eXtracted. 2 of them didnt need to loop because its loops at the very end and the other one doesnt loop (you probably finish the level or near the end if the bgm finished). i had trouble with looping with 1 bgm and i still think that i didnt do well at that. but at least i follow enjl tutorial to make files <6MB in siZe.
