So a 9 month contest huh? Hopefully you don't forget about it by then XD

... Speaking of which... Why don't you just give me the money RIGHT NOW in preparation for LBPC: Teh Gamez... You know it'll RAWK.

GIMME TEH MONEY! GIMME TEH FRICKIN MONAH! :arg:

Oh wait, rule number 5... meh, we, I tried to weasel my way to a 50 dollar prize D:

Ah well, good luck anyone who enters... though considering the open qualifications, everyone should probably join anyway XD

Ah well. Maybe I could be a judge... Would give me an excuse to play more levels finally >_>

Well, the only reason it's for the U.S. only is because, well... I dunno how to transfer dollars to euros/pounds ;_;. BUT, I have other plans... so don't be surprised if you see it open up to Europe soon. ;)

Don't worry, I won't forget. Besides, this is my excuse from using the "Level Search" feature. Oh, and just because you've got the home-field advantage doesn't guarantee you a win. ;)

I think you should.. moving controller more, waving of arms and all evil less. :) Might be good therapy for you!

@Jack.. I take it a level that has not yet been published or started? I don't see any specifics concerning already existing levels and might want to clarify.

Whoops! :blush: Didn't realize that. But no, any level that you've published old OR new (that doesn't violate any of the rules, mind you :p) can be submitted.


AWESOME SAUCE!!!!!!!!!!!!! Lets say you have co-creators but agree to let one person have the money. Does rule 5 still apply :3

Well, the only problem with that is how you're gonna agree on who'll recieve that money. I mean, $50 is actually alot when you put it into PSN terms. But then again, I didn't say that was the only prize... ;)

Besides, I have a few months to build momentum for this, so it'll catch on soon, I hope O_o.

Oh, and you can enter levels into the competition startiiiing.... NOW.

If it were possible to get this as an "Official Site Contest"

It would probably get more attention if we could get it there and then it would be put as news on the front page.... But that may not be allowed and/or might be too much work for all of you guys. Just a thought, you know :)

EDIT: Or at least get it stickied on this forum, but I'd vote for front page news!

Don't worry about it. I can almost guarantee that every person that enters has an equal shot at winning. ^_^

Besides, not only will me and my judges (... where are you? O_o) play through the levels, we will also try to destroy them as much as possible... and the panel is still open! C'mon, sign up!! :kz:

The rules say that the judges can enter and that it can't be made by two people, I think...

Edit: Yes, the above it true.

Its not a challenge put on by the site, which makes it seem unlikely it will end up there to me. However, CC could certainly help boost popularity with an announcement (Ala LBPCTG or Knights of the Azure Palace).

Just a reminder, you may enter ANY level (that doesn't violate the rules), new OR old!! So if you have a level sittin' around with nothin' to do, enter it! It's worth a shot!!

I really don't think that one more thread would make much of a difference in the clutter of the forums, just a way to help you guys find the levels and for others to find them easier to play them if they wanted to. It's totally up to the judges and I won't fight to the death about it! :p

So if it's a code that can be won I could actually enter eventhough I'm not in the US, right? Because all you really need is a US account. :)

robotiod
03-13-2010, 11:18 AM
I guess so, as of right now the contest is open to all UK and US residents. As the SONY term of usage contract says you should only open PSN accounts in the country that you reside from we cannot condone opening an alternate account. However I see no obligation in not allowing anyone who has an account open. However ultimately it would be Jacks decision as he is the one running the contest.

Outlaw-Jack
03-13-2010, 05:53 PM
Well, if you are a foreign resident with a US account, then I guess you'd be eligible for the $50 cash prize (and the other stuff that will be added). However, if you enter two separate accounts (i.e. one UK and one US) in the competition, then I'd have no choice but to disqualify you from the competition. It's unfair to those who only have one account and takes an unfair advantage over the rest. So, you may only enter ONE account, and only one.

Speaking of prizes... should I try contacting CC (or Mm) about this? Not sure if it'll do anything, but it's worth a try... right?

TonyTwoGunz
03-14-2010, 11:30 PM

It may end up being a two level thing, I'll have to wait and see how the creating goes. Good thing I've got summer vacation in a little while! Here's a little teaser pick! It looks TONS better when you see the real thing though. I hope I'll have some people to compete against!

I'm sorry if I'm sounding abit like a nag or something right now, but it just irks me that I'm putting up $50 (and robotiod putting up an untold amount for the UK) and no-one's excited about this.

I would say that it should be allowed and just give the prize to the psn user the level is published under, if the publisher (in this case LBPholic) did win and he kept the prizes it would be him who would have to tell the people who helped him that he won. That he got prizes. and that he isn't sharing. However knowing that LBPholic is a nice person i know he would share his prizes with whoever helped him.

Hah! You really think that a series about this website is gonna guarantee you success? Oh-ho! That's funny...

Although I may be charismatic most of the time (almost always)... I'm a Nazi when it comes to reviews. First submission, automatically off the bat it was too dark for my taste. Secondly, the story lost significance in the beginning and end of the level (most of it was spoken in the middle of the level). Thirdly, the boss at the end is frustratingly difficult. The ground constantly lurched up (which broke my focus) and sometimes launched me into the boss' hazards. The pacing was sporatic and confusing ( I was shooting randomly for the first half until I made progress). The level of detail on the boss was subpar compared to the rest of the level. And... I did NOT necessarily enjoy the boss either. If it weren't for the infinite checkpoint conveniently placed out of range, I probably would of, say, thrown the controller at the cat.

And that's just a fraction of what I think of the level. I don't think this one's gonna be a winner either (let alone yours). :kz:

But, if you can manage to sort out those $50 amongst the others, I can allow it. Don't say I didn't warn you... ^_^

Alrighty! Just contacted CC and explained everything. Now I know what I need to do...

-Judging spots are still open! I know the wall of text might make it look scary, but it's very easy! Really! All you'd need to do is just fill in numbers and throw in your 2-cents! That's it. Really simple!

-Starting now, I'm also throwing in a LBP shirt (in the size of your choice) and my own LBP strategy guide (the BradyGames version) into the prizes for either US or UK.

-Entries!! We need entries!! Like, ASAP! It doesn't matter if your level is old or new or never released! If you think it's the best out there, then enter it! Just make sure it's eligible first... :rolleyes:

-Finally... I'm thinking of advertising this competition on LBN (LittleBigNetwork and LBW (LittleBigWorkshop). I wanna have your guy's opinions/comments first before I dive in. I wanna try to garner as much attention as possible (I mean, come on, we're talking about $50 and whatever robotiod's pitching in, people!).

I absolutely refuse to let this competition die, so if you're thinking I'm abit hyped up right now... you're right!

I feel like I've just signed a death sentence... ;_;

The competition has now spread over to LittleBigNetwork!! Not only will this churn out more entries (hopefully), but it seems now that this is gonna be an all-out "War of the Sites"!! How will I manage the chaos that'll ensue!!... :eek:

By giving them the exact same rules, that's what. :p

So... do your home-boy proud, and represent LBPC!! :kz:!!

(Now to try LBW... may God have mercy on my soul...)

Because I can't think like that, and if I have to pull a numerical value for an abstract concept such as how good something is, I'd just make it up, perhaps related to how much I like said person, and that wouldn't be fair at all, would it, having a judge who just picks numbers out of nowhere because he can't process how you can add numerical values to abstract concepts.

So bai.

You know, I have the same problem (or at least similar), I find it too much to judge on with those judging guidelines. Sorry, I understand this will be pretty bad for the contest but I'm really sorry, I'm leaving also. I didn't expect this type of judging, I thought it would be a little easier.

Again, sorry, I've left the group. :(

WOW, guys i'm sorry to hear it. But when some people jump off the horse its all good for other people to jump on so does anyone else want to judge in this competition. It really isn't as hard as it sounds.

Doopz
04-02-2010, 04:12 PM
Yep, it's all good, it's all fun and games being a judge! I'm just too stupid to do the job! :)

(When do I get paid for that?)

Hopefully this will get more people into judging...

JUDGING FORMAT

Alright... since the old rules were too harsh, I'm lowering my expectations a little.

Instead of a harsh system of averages and maths, I'll dumbify it to a much LOWER level:

Secondaries will give an overall score of 1-5 (points are allowed), Primaries will give a score of 1-10, and me and robotiod will give a score of 1-15. Also, please give a "play ratio" score (chances you'll play it again) on a scale of "very low" to "very high". All you must do now is leave a small comment in the following catagories:

MAIN CATAGORIES (Used for ALL levels)
- Concept (What it's about)
- Visuals (How it looks)
- Logic (How it plays)
- Difficulty (How hard it is)
- Fun (How fun it is to play)

SERIES CATAGORIES (Also to be used with MAIN CATAGORIES)
-Series score (S: 1-5, P: 1-10, L: 1-15)
_____________

Since this IS an unbiased and fair panel of judging, I'm giving you the freedom to judge by your OWN scale. Do NOTE though, that this scale, once decided, must be consistant with ALL judging (including your own and freind's levels). If any of these conditions (including the ones in the main thread) are violated, you may and most likely will be rejected from the Panel and will also be disqualified from the competition.

I wish you all the best of luck, and... let's get judging!!

(If you have any questions, feel free to post... now.)

@Outlaw: In the Concept, Visuals blah blah, do we comment on it or do we use numbers?

robotiod

I gave a number like all the others, but its always helpful to leave a comment to back yourself up.

Um, 9 months...

Well, I've got plenty of time to start working on a level, cancel it, as usual, and begin something totally different ! :p

Just one point :

You are only allowed to enter 1-5 levels OR a multi-level series.

Does this mean that we can enter a series with more than 5 levels (but only 5 levels if they are different) ?

Thanks in advance, this sounds exciting !

Hm... Does that mean I can enter LBPC: The Game? Then again I didn't really build anything, I tell other people what to make, so it may not be fair to them if I get the money... I just want the money. NOW GIMME

Tell ya what, you give me the money now, I'll punch Doopz in the face. Deal?

- Difficulty (How hard it is)




Uhm, how does this get rated..? Cause.. like.. yeah.. you know....

Of course I understand that you rate the diffculty, but I don't see what's the perfect diffculty...

Oddmania
04-04-2010, 08:36 PM
Fredrik, I quite agree.

I guess there's no perfect difficulty, but a player must be able to complete a good level without being stuck all along. I think it's important to add some puzzles demanding concentration and thought.

Actually it depends what kind of level you're working on, sure.

Well then, you have the priviledge of punching yourself in the face. ^_^

Anywho, on with answers!!:

@Fredrik: In terms of "difficulty" rating, it'll be on the scale provided. It should correspond to the expected difficulty of the level. I strongly reccommend that the judges leave a comment in regards to their decision. Also, remember the "."s.
And yes, a series can have more than 5 levels. That's why I threw that option in. BUT (I'll add this to the rules), if you enter a series with over 5 levels, then that'll be your ONLY entry in the competition.

@Jazve: You rank by the numbers. If the difficulty's perfect, rank it a 5. If it's horrible, rank it a 1. And so on and so forth. Leaving a little comment would be appreciated. :)

One more thing... how in blazes am I gonna be able to get someone to punch Doopz in the face?

(Hmm... perhaps some rope and crazy glue could work... ~_^)

(But then again, holding him at gunpoint doesn't hurt either... :kz:)

What about including an input for Audio and Sound Effects in the judging format? I personally believe sound is an important asset in a good level.

I'll enter my new level :)
1. Your PSN-Kody59527
2. Your Level-Side Scrolling Platformer
3. Location of the Level-Eastern United States
4. Brief Description of the Level-The basic idea is that instead of Sackboy moving the camera, the camera pans to the right by itself. This level is seperated by 3 stages Sky, Field, & Tundra.
5. Why you think your Level is "The Best"
-It utilizes a awesome concept not used in most levels (scrolling camera)
-It features a difficulty and reward selector. (Easy, Medium, & Hard.) The harder the difficulty, the faster the camera, and the bigger the reward at the end.
-Unique music selector. It has menu music, but when you enter a stage, the music you selected at the beginning starts playing, then when you return back the menu music starts back up.
-It's a level of 3 stages. It's 3 levels packed into one! ^_^
-Eye candy! (Check the Tundra stage :p )
