Ahh, I see. Tell the turbo loader isn't such an issue for me but the 40 col screen thing... I am undecided on as the main goal was to push VDC use. I felt 40 col stuff would be too close to 64 stuff "but with a bit more ram" as people always say. Would you be finished in time to submit? I might consider widening the rules for a second category or something.
I'm racing to get something finished the balancing part has take a lot more that I expected. Its a Tactics game, of which I'm going to submit a 1 map 128 early version for the compo. Title is Tactics 128
What are the rules about releasing parts/early versions before the deadline? Does it have to be held until you release it as part of the compo, or can I put out early versions for testing and feedback on say twitter?
I would prefer it wasn't "released" but sending to a couple friends for testing is fine as long as they don't spread it... It's going to be freely available after the deadline anyway, I don't want ton control distribution. It would just be nice for people to know that these are the from this competition not just stuff that got released then submitted anyway if you get what I mean. Hence the "not previously released" rule. Do some testing, but please don't spread it widely before the deadline.
