07-12-2009, 07:33 PM
Welcome members of LBPC to the Ghostbusters Competition! Annoyed at Mm for not giving us ghostbusters levels? Then join this contest instead and show Mm what theyíre missing out on!

What you must do
Create a Ghostbusters inspired level. Simple as that. It can follow the plot of any of the movies, be a tech demo for your own proton pack or be an entirely different take on Ghostbusters. So long as it is related to ghostbusters then itís allowed.

Submission Guidelines:
You must PM me (http://www.lbpcentral.com/forums/member.php?u=3275) (Coxy224) once you have published your level, with its name and a short description.
All submissions must have Ghostbusters somewhere in the title.
Bonus points for including a LBPC logo somewhere in your level.
All submissions must be published before the due date (31st August)

1st Place: 500 XP
2nd: 250 XP
3rd: 150 XP
So a lack of prizes isnít an excuse for not entering! Thanks a lot to Confused Cartman for letting me give away these amazing prizes.

Close Date: 31st August 12pm GMT.

If you have any questions or queries then either post in this thread or send me a PM.
Thanks for reading and I hope you take the time to enter.

That's quite a large window :p. If I end up getting the Gostbusters Pack, I'll have to consider entering this one.

07-12-2009, 11:04 PM
I think I'll enter...

07-12-2009, 11:08 PM
Nice comp Coxy :D

I think I might have to try this out as I'm a bit lacking in enthusiasm for creating atm :)

07-12-2009, 11:12 PM
If I do enter, I'll probably just make a really giant working proton pack. O:

This is intriguing, Heaven knows i need the exp (that gives you points to spend yes?)

Well ghostbusters eh?

Hmm competing against this community you guys are hardcore hmm. :idea:

I may do :p

07-13-2009, 12:10 AM
... I may try... I need the exp, after all.




Anyway, yeah, this sounds fun. Plus a create contest. D:

07-13-2009, 12:56 AM
Yes, I shall definitely try. But I'm going to go for of a Ghostvictims view. A Horror level!

07-13-2009, 02:25 AM
Cool idea Coxy! I'd love to play a ton of Ghostbusters themed levels!!

07-13-2009, 03:17 AM
Coxy... really nice idea here... What I like the most is how you took so many peoples sour grapes and turned it around, and took away a lot of those excuses, to make wine from whine. Now instead of 1 Ghostbuster level... we will have many... Nicely done and another terrific excuse to have me trade burners yet again.

07-13-2009, 04:16 PM
Thanks for the enthusiasm, I'd love to see what you guys can come up with on this. I've left it open so I can see lots of different things - Trap's working proton pack sounds crazy, but even a 'Busters themed level sounds awesome!
I left lots of time because I don't want to rush people, if everyone's finished ealier then I may end it early.

07-13-2009, 04:49 PM
I'm totally entering. I'm actually making something as we speak!

07-13-2009, 07:20 PM
I've done some research.

07-13-2009, 08:00 PM
Stay Puft Super Boss, anyone? I think I know what my entry will be. :p

07-13-2009, 09:17 PM
I'm creating something, hopefully it qualifies ;)
(well, I'm more of experimenting with some things)

07-18-2009, 06:15 PM
Ok, just reminding everyone that this is still an open contest - everyone is welcome to join. PM me with any queries. Even if you just want to confirm a level is legible.
Also, the ghostbuster pack is out now so I'd love to see some use of it. Not mandatory but it was the pack that inspired this contest!

Gravel is to sloth as August 31st is to tomorrow. Does that make any sense? Got a script, got a proton beam effect, got a non working trap, and an broken intro!!! yep things are progressing as per usual over here in Gravel land... Oh even wrote a 10 sec snippet of music... This will never get done! Quick! Someone come up with a new contest to steal my always easily diverted focus.

07-21-2009, 06:56 PM
Well it sounds like you've got auite a level coming along there Gravel! I can't wait to see it ;)
And there is a tonne of time left - so don't give up!

07-26-2009, 04:57 AM
hmmm ill give it a try to this contest hehe :)

08-01-2009, 08:03 PM
So how're things progressing?
Anyone actually made anything for this yet? :D

08-03-2009, 09:37 AM
It's gonna be very easy on us judges if we don't see some entries soon. :(

HI Coxy!

Don't mean to overrun your thread but you did ask... as such, I am posting some images and stuff... teasers really...

While at least publicly I'm disappointed in the response to this thread I wanted you to know you Inspired at least one creator... and that is no small feat!

My Ghostbuster level has been trying to 'save' the least... It has undergone three separate data losses, [one my fault]. I lost my GB song, caricatures, ACT 1, and Intro.

What's left I'm submitting as proof positive I am still moving forward. Not sure I'll be done by Aug 31, but maybe that's for the best... depending on the number of entrants, quality, etc.

Thanks Coxy I am having infuriating fun. The rest should be wrapped in spoiler tags for size restraints...

WOW - That looks GREAT! Can't wait to check these out!!!

08-09-2009, 11:20 PM
Ya...I am working on a level...I hope I can finish it in time. It's a different take on the ghostbusters, but I think it will be awesome...well the idea is, not sure about the level.

08-14-2009, 05:29 PM
Ok, the deadline is fast approaching but it appears nothing is ready yet :(

I'd rather have some levels though so if people want I will extend the deadline until we actully have levels :p

08-14-2009, 07:43 PM
I might need some extra time...but it's up to you.
