If someone were to make a game that my offend someone/a certain group of people, should they post a warning to stay out of legal trouble, such as "WARNING: This game contains [insert something here] themes and may be offensive to some. DO NOT PLAY if this offends you" or something similar? I was just wondering, because I have something special in mind for a game but it might make some people mad.

Thanks again,

thats what im doing, i believe that my game may be borderline on a slap/ban for some of the more sensitive mods. although i think it'll be worth it

Okay... so let me get this straight. You can qualify to enter it even if other people have to pay to play it at that time
or later? I'm just curious. I guess that means, if you did win AND made BOTB or VBOTB, everyone else has no choice but
to pay to play?

Your signature has been erased by a mod, because it was too small.

@2 Rogues, added.

@Captain Coder, Yes I suggest you add a warning for anyone that may see and/or play your game, not just this forum if planning to do so. This is something you need to consider yourself on limiting your viewer base and age, and/or the AUP.
Here's a link for you and others that may be of help
http://www.tigrs.org/

@Bootlicker, refer to above for some info if you need a free rating.

@unfamillia, added.

@Metal Devil123, all the best finding what you need, try a redownload of the media for a license (depending on finding and if still available.) I also didnt add you to the list yet, let me know if you want to be added. Though the list is not a official entrant listing.

@cjkidbravo, added.

@xhogan89x, added.

@ASTEK, good point made above I suggest others to do the same at some point if using others media for other uses above private use.

To answer your question, this is purely up to the developer on what level they wish to take their game to. Someone working on a title from the start of the year planning to make a commercial game and enters the game (not a demo) can do so and ask for judging use only.
However I would more so think a dev making a commercial game as such would enter a demo, which in alot of cases would be made public. There has been BOTB games commercial, not released freeware. However some have then been released for free at a later date.
I am not sure how many of these commercial full games will be entered at the end of the year, or more so if they are released to pay to play as you added, around the same time of the competition ending. The quote highlighted is to let dev's know they can submit anything from a unfinished, unpolished game up to a completed commercial game for a chance at the prizes.
The developers decision to sell their game after the contest end date (or before), is their own choice. The contest or judges do not make that decision for them or direct any advice in not doing or doing so. Thanks for the question.

Good luck to all who enter so far.

Thanks Defy!

Good link too, I've seen some people use it. Thanks!

I saw 2beastmode4u put up his entry with a warning inside the post that his game might bring back bad memories but he changed it later because of the consequences if could potentially entail. So this is something I'll definitely have to keep in mind!

Being green as I am, I probably won't join. I will keep in mind that I have the option open though... so who knows? Maybe I'll give it a go. Thanks for investing the time to do this!

If I purchased, for example, model pack 53 which was not made by TGC but purchased on their site, does this need an included license? I'm just try to get them all together for this.

@raymondlee306, tgc packs are ok. No license required as they are designed for commercial and non-commercial games.


@Josh Mooney, no worries. I've also added you to the non-official entrants list.


@Pbcrazy, added. Looking forward to seeing what you do.


@Help bugs!, added. Welcome back to the dev cycle.


@FLAME123, added. Ah, yes this is true. You never know what may happen. At the end of the day, a game/demo completed is still worth the time. All the best.


@Levi barros, this is fine. You are welcome to submit any type of game you like. However do take into consideration media and copyrights. All the best.

@Bootlicker, Thanks for adding the link.

@Help bugs!, Thanks to you also for the added link.

(I noticed you had a problem with skybox, glad you see you found a solution. I have included a link to changing skybox per level, located in the final section of the first post. I'm not sure if the information is still current after the latest update. However info is there and a link to Davy B's original thread dated in '07 if any one is interested.)

Sorry all, I have to with draw from the competition. I have way too much work to do on this game and I would rather get it done right and not rush it just to hit this dead line. Maybe I'll be ready for the next one. Good luck to all those going in and I'll be watching all these threads cause they look great (I was worried about my chances seeing them).

p.s. I was kind of proud of my documentation so I attached it here just for kicks. Done in Celtix.

p.p.s. Yes that really is the name of the game I am working on.

following is sad for me but i have to:

as i mentioned in my wip, i am out of this contest because of the noncommercial license of waspv2free-mod. i hoped that scene commander and the others got a pro-license done, but now i run out of time.

so please cancel me out of the list, defy.

all the best wishes and good luck to you guys around here.

A month to go. I guess this is the time when you look through your to do list and cross off those features, models and levels that just aren't going to be finished on time.
Looking forward to seeing everyone's entry! Good luck all.

So who is actually in this comp now? I need to weigh up my competition! haha. Joking.

I am just interested to the different variety of games involved.

I know loads of people were interested, but, who actually got a WIP up in time?

the WIP is only the first hurdle. You've got to have an actual playable, working, bug free game available to download by the 5th December.

I'm still on track to make it. Currently planning to have mine ready by 20th Nov, but then there will be bug fixing and tweaking so I'm not going to submit it until the last moment so that it is as perfect as I can make it.
