Hey everyone!

While I don't want into a big debate on the subject, we all know that X10 has been a little less active than X9 lately. However, with the release of the source and the first X10 mod being released, hopefully we can breathe some much-needed life into the engine. Me and Budokaiman were hoping to use this moment of power to start a competition for X10 created games. So, on behalf of myself and Budokaiman, here are the rules for The X10 Revival Competition:

---------------------------------

Rules: The game must contain 5 or fewer maps, and must stand out from X9 games in some way

---------------------------------

Criteria:

Originality - How does the game set itself apart from other games, and how does it stand out from X9 games. Be creative! No limits here.

Playability - Is the game enjoyable, is it glitched, how well does it work? Another tip is to use gameplay to tell the story.

Framerate - Does the game suffer from framerates being too low? Do you use optimization techniques?

Design - Was there a good amount of work put into the levels, or were they just quickly thrown together? Do you use the features exclusive to X10 well? Which means, do not use water for the sake of water.

Media - Is there only stock media being used, or is there custom media? We encourage the use of stock media that comes with X10, however stock that also came with X9 is looked down upon.

---------------------------------

Judges:

Shadowtroid
budokaiman

---------------------------------

Prizes:

Shadowtroid's Sci-Fi'd up weapon of your choice (but you must own the weapon)

The Ultimate Script Pack, by Shadowtroid and budokaiman

The Stock Sci-fi Pack, a set of sci-fi edits for the stock weaponry.

A free year of Web Hosting provided by The Next:



A medieval or request (specifics TBD) pack by mgarand

2 rusty metal grundge segments by Nilloc

HoriZon's Sci-fi Texture pack (if 5 or more valid entries enter)

An ad campaign by jmtmew, with:
Quote: "[a] logo, a poster, a banner, a small flash website for it with a 'yourgame.co.nr' domain name (I'll give you the login details and instructions) and if clips are provided to me, a trailer "
for first and second place.
---------------------------------

If anyone else wishes to donate prizes, that would be highly appreciated

The competition will run until the end of May. The competition is intended to showcase how well you work with X10, how much time and effort you spend in your levels and how you can overcome certain obstacles, hence the 5 map limit, and it is also intended for you to showcase your creativity with game making. Make your game better than an X9 could be! Use X10 well! We want to see what it can be done! Push the limits! We are trying to bring X10 back to life, so now is the time to make your best game yet.

So get started! Comp ends June 22nd.

---------------------------------

Current valid entries:

Prisoner at War - Susysyay
Left 2 Rot - zerocool126
Everything can happen when a man is dreaming - the dark ale
Rise of R`lyeh - Ertlov
RADS - Le Shorte

---------------------------------

Winner:

Prisoner at War - Susysyay

Congrats!

Added your prize to the list.

Hmm...Let me ask Budokaiman about that. We might not need more judges.

EDIT: I think we're good for Judges. Thanks for asking though.

Well, I've decided to sit Rads out for this compo. My 4th level corrupted so I'll have to remake that. And Rads was meant to be a fun, generic shooter. Not exactly to showcase why X10 is superior to X9. So I'll start a new one! I'm still in!

Well...

1). When you say it must be different from X9 games, in what aspect do you mean? I can think of bloom and shadows etc., but not exactly much else.

2). Can I use maps which I started a few days ago?

3). Can the game be entered with or without the Mystic Mod?

4). Any specific genre? Perhaps one person may make a Sci-Fi game whilst someone else may make a modern-day horror ().

5). Can the game be inspired from a film or any type of media?

6). Do short-levels - for example, short separate flashbacks - count as an additional level or half etc.?

I may try this, but as I've always said, don't expect me to enter anything, I have GCSE exams coming up, so I'll be doing this in my spare time. I have a rather cool idea, if I can keep it in my head over revision xD. Good luck, and may the best designer win .

1.) Make use of X10 features, don't only use features that are in both versions.

2.) Sure, you can use any maps that you have used over time. We have no way of checking.

3.) Either, I'm still working on the mod, once recoil and such are integrated, you can use that version too.

4.) You can make whatever you like.

5.) Sure.

6.) You can only have 5 "Maps" hint hint.

Quote: "I may try this, but as I've always said, don't expect me to enter anything, I have GCSE exams coming up, so I'll be doing this in my spare time."

We might end up extending the date, depending on how many people enter, and if extra time is needed.

Quote: "-EDIT- Sorry for the bump too "

Don't apologize, it was helpful. We want as much attention as we can get.

I should've read that properly .

Quote: "However, don't go overboard. Don't put in water for the sake of water."


Of course . Dependant on how much spare time I have, put me on he list for now . Time for some inspirational fun and map sketching (perhaps Graphics may actually come to a use for me).

Quote: "3.) Either, I'm still working on the mod, once recoil and such are integrated, you can use that version too."


I'll try that when it comes out, it won't work for me on the latest version, the characters cycle through their animations and ragdoll doesn't work, even with the MATURE patch enabled "/. I'll post the problems on the thread to stop from filling this one up.

Quote: "1.) Make use of X10 features, don't only use features that are in both versions."


So, basically X10-exclusive scripts, effects and various other features then? I have a pretty neat idea in mind .

If you are still in need of competetors I could make something real quick. I probably won't do it unless youare feeling to be fair we should have more or you have a higher minimum to reach. I know I won't win out of all these contestants, so if you are good with competetors could I be a judge? I know you said no but maybe you could reconsider? If rejection comes to that as well, I might be able to provide a prize, over all I just want to help.

It's until the end of May, you don't need to make something "real quick."

Overall, I don't think we need any "filler" competitors. If you want to make a full game, go ahead. Tell me so I can add you to the list.

Quote: "so if you are good with competetors could I be a judge?"


I'm pretty sure we're good on judges. If you really want me to I can ask Budokaiman again, but I'm pretty sure we need no more.

Quote: "If rejection comes to that as well, I might be able to provide a prize, over all I just want to help."


If you want to submit a prize, go ahead.

Well, I've got bad news. I was done with my first level which took forever because I am using costume scripts and I am a below average scripter. The fpm is now corrupt for some reason. It worked yesterday, but it doesn't work today and I have not changed a thing. All my maps I made before though are fine. I guess I am going to have to restart.

EDIT
Am I allowed to use Mystic-Mod?

Run the FPSC-Cleaner.exe and that should help. I used to have a corrupt file that kept me from being able to compile Mystic-Mod, once I updated to V1.11 and ran the cleaner, it everything worked perfectly.

Sorry about the bump (again lol), but could you remove me from the list for now since I have 2 viruses to fix along with coursework, exams and whatnot? Sorry about that, I thought I'd let you know in advance before saying it at the end of the comp. I can't use FPSC X10 on this PC since it's my dad's and he despises PC Gaming, and this has a crappy nVidia GeForce 8600 .

Good luck to the participants, and I hope I can re-enter soon .
