No more new entries can be submitted to the contest. If you didn't enter yet, too late, come back next year.

For those that did, remember that you have the additional week of updates you can make up to the end of Sunday 16th October.

Deadline Nearly Over for Submissions - Last Day Sunday 9th October

Posted by Spanner at 22:56:33 08-10-2016

As people have been confused with deadlines, we are making Sunday 9th October the LAST day before the deadline expires. In other words, you can still enter to the contest on the Sunday and not worry about not being able to submit.

The cutoff has to be manually done and will be done whenever Cinossu wakes up Monday in the BST time zone so get your stuff in this Sunday and remember the additional week for updates - deadline for that is after Sunday 16th October.

If anyone STILL needs permission to enter the contest (those who are not Full Members of Sonic Retro and SSRG) please post a comment in this news entry and we can get you permission as soon as possible.

We are aware of some site issues that need to be fixed. If anyone has been having problems uploading or attaching an external link, please post a comment in your entry's comment area with the URL and it will be manually attached to your entry.

Participate in the Contest Week

Posted by Spanner at 22:30:12 22-09-2016

As you may be aware, we have the Contest Week taking place this year from Monday 7th to Sunday 13th November. There are opportunities for everyone to take part in the Contest Week - it isn't a closed door environment. So as a result we are looking for people who could provide additional streams, site reviews, hacking workshops and much more. If you have something you can do during the week we want to know so you can do it. In the past people have done things such as music workshops and level design seminars among other things. You don't need to submit a hack to be part of the Contest Week!

To be a part of the Contest Week with whatever you are interested in doing please contact a judge (preferably myself or SuperEgg as we are more hands on with the contest week) with full details and examples (videos, links etc) of previous work.

Streams can be done at any time including when other streams are on, you just need to let us know what times they'll be on and where they will be at so that they can be added to the website. PLEASE NOTE: Providing streams does not make you part of the Media Panel unless you have been specifically asked to be a part of it.

Reminder of Deadlines

Posted by Spanner at 22:25:27 22-09-2016

We are getting a good load of submissions so far, but there is still plenty of time to enter into the contest. So here's a reminder of the two deadlines for the contest:

The submissions deadline for entries will be Sunday 9th October 2016 where you must submit a playable build to download by then to the contest site in order for it to be entered.

You then have a week to refine your entry, fix any issues found and improve your hack which will be Sunday 16th October 2016. Official judging will commence following that deadline.

Remember, you must have a full member account on either Sonic Retro or SSRG to enter into the contest, if you are not a full member but want to participate please contact a judge for permission to enter.

Another year, another hacking contest. Welcome, one and all! Despite changes on both the Retro and SSRG sides of their forum integrations - visible or not - both will still work here, so you do not need to worry. I'm sure other judges will post something other than me, so I shall leave this one short. I look forward to seeing what entries appear in this year's contest, as always!
