Tip to any aspiring contestants: Don't rely on anyone else to do a piece of the stage (e.g. music), it will bite you in the ass in the end.

I'm absolutely not joining since I don't and won't have access to my own computer for the rest of the year. Good luck to everyone, though.

Is this directed towards me? Cuz  my stage works on all 3. It uses winmugen .sff but has zoom code in it for 1.1 users.

No. What made you think that my comment was directed towards you? I just said that so I can test the stages in 1.0 and stuff (No, I won´t use 1.1!!!) so that´s it :P Chill bro, it wasn´t directed towards anyone nor you.

I'm in! Count me in. I'll get My internet back tomorrow. Enough time. I believe I could finish it in 3-4 days.
Also, Is it mandatory to use those images in the opening post? Cause I have a state already made (hires). Its for 1.1 but I can make it 1.0 for this contest.
Title: Re: Stage Creation Competition 2013
Post by: Dissidia on June 07, 2013, 07:14:16 am
I believe you can use your own.  I don't see it on the rules about being mandatory to use those supplied on the main thread. Also, EX didn't state what resolution of the stage does it have to be, so I believe either one is acceptable.

It can be the resolution you like, just have to obey what EXShadow stated in the first post (for 1.0 & Winmugen, stuff like that). You may use whatever resources you want, want to use those links?? go ahead!!

 Also guys :
- Enter only if you're sure you will finish your stage.
- Take your time! You have more than a month to finish it, and once you enter your stage you can't update it. So take your time, make sure everything is perfect, and only post the link once IT IS 100% FINISHED !!!

Any reason in particular that 1.1 was excluded?
Title: Re: Stage Creation Competition 2013
Post by: Demitri on June 07, 2013, 05:37:01 pm
I'm guessing because everyone can't run it, and I dont think Ex can so he wouldnt be able to judge them.
Title: Re: Stage Creation Competition 2013
Post by: Cybaster on June 07, 2013, 05:39:42 pm
That's probably the more logical explanation (Ex being unable to run it), because I wouldn't have had any problem with testing 1.1 stages with crisp images. :P

Yeah, EX can't run 1.1 in OpenGL mode..... also it maybe because 1.1 it's officially released yet.

Will you make your stage this time? I hope so.

I question this seeing last years winning entry and one other entry were conversions from a source game. I would assume that line of the rule means to for entries to be original or am I missing something.

I feel like that is appropriate for a full stage, but if it also means not using sprites from a source game then I'd have to disagree.

quote updated:

The rules said:
- Be creative...

and

Note, stages will be judged on quality, coding, and originality so try your best!

Quote
I question this seeing last years winning entry and one other entry were conversions from a source game. I would assume that line of the rule means to for entries to be original or am I missing something.

I just want to be clear on the rules and get a good understanding, that's all. I am not trying to throw a monkey wrench or anything into this event. I am in it for the fun plus to see how much everyone, old school to new school has grown.

Great to see a new stage contest here :D this time I won't participate, I need a lot of skills for stages and I've to improve the ones I already made (like TMNT3 from past contest). So good luck to all challengers this year, I hope to see some 8-bit/old-school stages in this version ;)

Graphics were not but w/e.... besides coding alone shouldn't be the only deciding factor.
Everyone either did something original or heavily edited but a source conversion with no originality won the contest....

Or is there an unwritten rule somewhere....

Title: Re: Stage Creation Competition 2013
Post by: Negative Edge on June 09, 2013, 01:58:52 am
I'm not creating drama, I'm merely questioning the contest rules. Look I have nothing against you or your works. We go way back since mugendev days and you teaching me how to use variables, but I just wanna be clear on something and to me I don't think its really fair or in the same field as the rest of the past entries. So yes I am questioning this.
Title: Re: Stage Creation Competition 2013
Post by: Cobra Caddie on June 09, 2013, 02:21:22 am
Creativity wasn't part of the scoring last time. It was a suggestion. Here:

http://network.mugenguild.com/cybaster/random/MFG_Competition_2012.pdf (http://network.mugenguild.com/cybaster/random/MFG_Competition_2012.pdf)

Scoring was how the stage looked visually, how it was coding, and an overall. My stage scored the worst graphically, and would have done better I'm sure it was an original stage. However, the stage had a TON of animations. Besides the two cats which are a highlight of the stage, there's the billboard that has the blinking cat, the cat paw, and the lighted sign that has a long animation to it. The far most background has several animations to it, the mid background has two separate layers with animations. The strobe lights too...I programmed them all accurately to the source.

Creativity is a guideline that is suggested in order for the entries to be different, and to inspire uniqueness, I assume. Last year wielded a ton of unique, awesome new stages that I loved playing and this year I'm sure it's going to be the same. I don't speak for the judges but this is my interpretation. I was legit surprised I got 1st place last time, I thought I was going to embarrass myself compared to the high quality other entrants.
Title: Re: Stage Creation Competition 2013
Post by: Negative Edge on June 09, 2013, 02:29:16 am
I see. Like I said caddie, I wasn't trying to promote problems, just wanted a proper understanding and you took the time to go in-depth with the explination and your stage. If I created any ill feelings, that wasn't my intention, hell, you just inspired me  and gave me an idea of the stage I want to create and enter into this contest.

So thanks!

Also just asking is interactivity allowed or not. something very small, nothing major or heavy.

I actually planned on making a small guide if it was allowed. I did say I want to be fair and watch everyone grow on stage development and not limit themselves. Its a growing process ppl and I'm sure many of you with the proper guidance would like to a hive such a thing no?

Ill start with something simple like adding extra sounds to stages, timing events that you can sync properly and commanded by characters, etc. Just to get your foot on the door. I'm at work now and I can start a mini template when I get home.

Fair enough?

Post by: -Red- on June 09, 2013, 04:25:08 am
For the judges who don't know how to code: Just copy paste stuff and add files as specified in the guide.


For the people who will submit a stage with interactivity: Make it so the implementation is as streamlined as possible.

Release a helper in statedef -2 and let the helper do the rest of the stuff (Only one sctrl for each char required, helper state would go in common1.cns as a one time paste).

Include a sff file with graphics to add to fightfx.sff so judges can port them with axis and correct numbering via Fighter Factory.

Sounds should be easy enough to add manually.

Everything specified in a cool guide that's easy to read (N0 1337 5p34k).

I fused all of my KOF 99 stages into one with a virtual stage-like transition between them and with all the interactive stuff (Rain, ambient noises, people reacting to chars about to get ko'ed, etc) just to mess up with the judges who will have to add all the stuff required for it to work. You will regret accepting stages with interaction this year  :haw:

Also I would really prefer ppl use 1.0 if they are going to attempt this.

Indeed, it doesn´t have too be very flashy (that won´t win by itself anyway) what will determine the winner is the coding (proper deltas, transpariencies apply properly, proper bounds) stuff like that. Being original is important cause it will tell true effort for everything was applied.

Beauty only gets you so far. 

That stage got 16th out of 17 entries. 

If the contest was only based on beauty, you wouldn't need experienced stage makers to judge it. 
Playability is another factor.  Markpachi's stage didn't run at 60fps for any of the judges, and so the gameplay suffered. 
And then of course there's looking at the coding and sff to look for things that really show how much the contestant knows about stage making. 


Tamez, you know it was my first time. :bigcry:

You may have a harder time this year.  I gave you a higher score than the other guys last time, but I'm not judging this year.   :laugh:

Don't tell me that, T-T, in my opinion he was the best stage creator/coder by far. *Sigh
Title: Re: Stage Creation Competition 2013
Post by: Watta on June 16, 2013, 09:05:13 am
Jean had really badass graphics, but I know a lot of people who has better coding skills than him (Don't get me wrong, I don't see myself better than most people). I haven't seen him on any of the forums or chat in months, so I guess Mark is right :P
Title: Re: Stage Creation Competition 2013
Post by: Tamez on June 16, 2013, 09:15:22 am
Jean competed last year.  He placed 5th. 

If he's fully retired, that's a shame.  While he had room to improve on his coding, he was at least working at it. 
He certainly would have been able to put 1.1's features to good use.

Post by: Cobra Caddie on June 16, 2013, 05:18:43 pm
He quit the Guild at least. I remember it pretty clearly. He posted a thread that questioned parts of the holocaust and it was deleted. Then he left after that. It's a shame, he's really talented. I hope he comes back some day. Btw if possible I'd like to avoid talking about what I just mentioned in this thread because I can feel a derail coming on.

He's mostly on youtube if he shows up at all. When he IS around though he's mostly around Trinity Mugen, Newage Mugen or Club SyN. Haven't seen him in months though, he's a pretty cool dude, just busy is all.

There's still time, so I'll try my hand at this. I need an inspirational kick anyways. Count me in.)

Here is my entry for this competition. I decided to redo my Mystery stage to have almost all of the original animations from the screen saver and some "new" sprites as well(except the cat because it is a pain to get the sprites from the ground). Also the timings for the animations are not original because they too slow for my liking.

I'm okay with the idea of not winning, actually. Truth be told, I joined this year's competition because I thought it would be motivation enough for me to realize an idea of mine that I've always wanted to do (not the Guardian Heroes Forest stage, Cybaster :p ).  I've put in a lot more work on it in the past couple of weeks thanks to the contest. :)

I honestly hate to say this... but I'm quitting this years competition.

I'm really busy, I had an exam last week and I'm having another in a couple of weeks. Not to mention I'm away from my main computer where I have all my MUGEN stuff.

I thought I had some time to spare to work on my stage but I don't. If I submit anything it will be extremely rushed and nothing like I want it to be and I know from last year that submitting rushed things is no good.

tl;dr: I'm not participating. If anyone wants my slot then fill it.

Made an official release post for my entry, but I'll quote the entire thing here, too! :)

Welp, here's my entry for the MUGEN Guild Stage Creation Competition of 2013!

(http://mugenorama.smeenet.org/images/stages/moondrive.png)

Long story time:
Spoiler, click to toggle visibilty

Long story short: this is a labor of love created from scratch. No rips, just stuff created from hours of research and studying NES/Famicom bootlegs! :)

Features:
-A stage originally designed for 256x240 screens brought into a 320x240 world! (Meaning: it would have been wider on an NES screen, but it's not as wide on a MUGEN screen. See, totally conceptual. ;p )
-Completely original graphics completely drawn by me! Completely.
-Minor super-jump support!
-Animations - blinking stars! The moonlight's reflection in the water!
-No music! Because I can't think of a good song to include (that isn't Moonlight Drive by the Doors. Which would be completely inappropriate, anyways.).

Anyhoo, here's the link for the stage: http://mugenorama.smeenet.org/stages/moondrive.zip (http://mugenorama.smeenet.org/stages/moondrive.zip)

Enjoy, and best of luck to the other participants in this year's competition! :)

How is it pointless?  Is a good stage no longer a good stage because it comes from a game?  If anything I see more people doing flashy original hi res stages these days.
Title: Re: Stage Creation Competition 2013
Post by: Joulz on July 09, 2013, 02:45:32 am
a stage being hires or not, source or not isn't relevant: there is absolutely no way to say that one creation is easier or has taken less effort to do than that one...when it comes to something mugen related, all depends on the creator knowledge in coding and whatnot...
someone making his first stage will obviously have way more difficulty achieving it than say a guy like Syn or Caddie, people who possess complete & in-depth understanding mugen wise, as well as a long ass track record of complex creations.

bottom line, it's for fun & practice: we do not win anything (and we have already lost anyway lol)

It's disappointing to see more than one person drop out of the competition knowing the spots couldn't be filled after they drop, even though it's a bit late now, it would've been better planning ahead, there's a couple people that would've liked to enter earlier but couldn't due to full spots. :/


Also, I don't think he was insulting the fact that source creations aren't as hard to make, but that they're less creative for the competition circumstance.

If I see another source conversion win this competition then this whole thing was pointless IMO....

There are a whole bunch of variables to consider not just the aestheics. Caddies stage was source accurate and the coding was solid too. As opposed to other stages who may have been visually pleasing on the eye but littered with errors in the coding. When you add up the pros and cons of both caddie deserved to win.

Finally done with my contribution.

I decided to go with a nostalgic theme, and something I have wanted to make for a long time.

(http://imageshack.com/a/img21/1334/njw4.png)

STOP THAT TRAIN!

I made a Wario Land II based level, retouching and updating some of the sprites to fit better with MUGEN, including all new anims for the audience enemies, but I still stuck to the Gameboy Colour palette to keep the nostalgia.

There are two versions, one above ground (with an easter egg) and one Underground.
I was hoping I could have the background shift from above to underground (tunnel?), but it did'nt work right so I seperated it into two different DEF files sharing one SFF. (altough if that counts as two seperate levels, then go for the regulair version (Stopthattrain.def).

The track and the background bellow the train karts are actually a seperate layer to the sky since I wanted to avoid any parts from a player character sticking under the train's floor in the case of a heavily angled character or one with big feet.

ENJOY! :D

I wanted to see if I could get a little more time to add an animation I came across but its gonna take at least a good 8 hours to clean up frame by frame.

Unfortunately I don't have that time tonight so that will come in the form of a future update I guess.

But thanks, I understand the rules.

Is the deadline July 18th at 0:00 (Don't even know which timezone) or can we still send our entry during that day? I have to add some extra animations and don't want to half ass it so I don't really know how much time left I have for this.

Well, it seems ready, here I present you my contest stage: Suave's Corridor.
(http://i1147.photobucket.com/albums/o557/hekutta/Suave_Corridor_zpsb9336c81.png)

It's animated, and it has a lot of stuff, that image was taken from Stage Viewer. It seems pretty simple but you will have a surprise once you open it in mugen. Is compatible in both WinMugen and Mugen 1.0

I couldn't get my stage up to the level I wanted it to be before submitting and it and its only at 3 layers now so I am backing out.

Well let me explain my situation. I have 4 stages i worked on for this competition. each one i gave up on because they weren't competition worthy. So i have stages to submit but i'd rather quit than submit half-ass stage :p . i think you guys would understand my dilemma. Furthermore, i am fully aware of the rules but if it means that much i can submit something pretty bad and get a low score to keep up appearances.
Title: Re: Stage Creation Competition 2013
Post by: Cybaster on July 18, 2013, 11:53:04 pm
It's your choice really. It's not as if you were going to get banned or as if Ex was coming to your house to spank you hard. :P
If you submit something, you'd be getting in-depth feedback for the stage, which I guess can't be a bad thing.

/me stops acting as if he wanted additional work...
Title: Re: Stage Creation Competition 2013
Post by: Cobra Caddie on July 18, 2013, 11:57:15 pm
I'll come to your house and spank you hard, though. Even if you didn't do anything. I'll still come.

Good luck in the contest everyone! These stages lookin fuckin excellent. Primo shit. Great job yall. ;D

While it's disappointing to see so many people drop out this year, the ones who did submit something have done a great job.  A nice mix of old school and original stages, with even a little in-between.  Good luck everyone!

I just read this whole thread and it's almost... sad.  There seemed to be a lot of heartfelt trash-talk early on, for roughly half the players seeing it through.

I've never really had feedback on anything.  To the Judges; Please be brutal, it's how I learn.  Plus, I'm shallow and you're not really going to hurt my feelings.

Congrats and respect to everyone who actually turned something in!

I haven't started testing the stages yet. :ninja:

I'll launch each stage one by one, test it several minutes, open the code, open the SFF, write some in-depth feedback.
I'll give a grade to each part, following the rules we have established with the judges.
Then I'll get all the results from the other judges, compile them all in a file and release the PDF file at once for everybody.

So people : go to bed. Results probably won't be out before a week. ::)

Well yes, I said I would compete and and I did, but I'm still a winner, why? Because aside for my place on the chart, the judges will rate and score my stage and I will see my flaws, and my mistakes, and they will help me to do a better job next year. So I can say that I am already a winner.  :2thumbsup:

Received both PMs. Will compile the results when I come back from work tomorrow.
Haven't done the calculations yet, but it's going to be a close call between 2 competitors I think. :ninja:

So yeah, results should be out in less than a day. :)

Right, I'm down for another one next year if I have the time, as well.  This was lots of fun. :)

The only disappointment for me (other than the piles of cash I sent apparently not reaching the judges) was the amount of people who dropped out, some of whom I really wanted to see a stage from.  At the same time, that's not really a big issue, and the stages that did make it in this year were really nice.  Good job, everyone!

Holy shitballs.  I was not expecting to take the win this year with so many great stages!

Thanks to everyone who entered this year and to the judges.  Not only did we get some awesome stages to download, but also some great, in-depth feedback from some of the best guys in the Mugen scene.  Thanks again to everyone else for the support and kind words, you guys are the bee's knees.

Great stuff.

I think there are things in the feedback for these stages that enriches the community. Maybe some guidelines (with the complementary tips on how to improve mistakes)should be written somewhere, so people can have a look at these.

The feedback and the PDF make this professional and exciting :)

Also, LOL @ Ilu, the iron judge. Awesome ;D

Ey, 15th place! Not bad at all. :)

Altough I agree with all the critisism I received about the stage, perhaps I should have chosen a better Wario Land level like Peaceful Village to avoid the roof problem buuuut I just tried to keep as much to that stage as possible.

The Projectile bug is one major fuck up on my part, I noticed it AFTER I submitted it, bleh...

Flat floor... yeeeeeeaaaaaaaah, I tried to angle the stage, but it just looked weird in the end. Sorry. :S

Also, some of the BG parts that could have felt out of place, especially the lowermost ones, it's mainly to avoid seeing characters feet poking out under the train floor, so yeah. :S

And finally... I have no bloody idea what cropping is. XS

BUT 15th place is great. :D

Well these competitions are for helping people to learn, specially since judges know how to make stages and will tell you what's wrong with them. :P
Cropping is removing zones with transparent color around the edges of the image. It basically optimizes your sprites so they don't waste more memory than what's needed, specially since transparency is a bit of a hard task in MUGEN and if not cropped correctly it can cause major slowdown.

Would yall mind if I addressed some of the feedback from my stage entry real quick?

Spoiler, click to toggle visibilty

You guys caught everything that I was worried about when converting this stage, so in my view that makes you great judges. The only thing you missed is that I could have optimized the sun rise by cropping it from the rest of the animation, making a smaller sff file size. But that would have been a huge pain in the ass.

I'd like to also confirm that this is the last contest I'll ever participate in. It's been fun and I'm so glad that you guys have done this and have given me the motivation to do what I consider some of my best stages, especially this years entry. And of course I love the entries from others that it brings out too. :)

That is the idea :)

Also, LOL @ Ilu, the iron judge. Awesome ;D

Was I too hard on the votes?

I agree with Walt. Big O was the "Simon" of the trio. Lol!


hahahahahahahahahahah

Ah man, I can't wait to compete next year.  You guys are really having fun with it, and I'm jealous :L

Me too. I have an idea: Maybe the judges could compete against each other, on a separated category, and judged by...who made entries for the competition.
How about that?

(I know I will lost, but its fun :) )

That all depends on if all 3 want to enter something. If only 1 or two want to enter something they might as well be contestants and not judges.

Yeah, I know.

That was what I meant. Unless there was a way for the top 3 winners to judge a stage entered by the judges. But that's all depending on if you, Caddie or Cybaster (just assuming that's next years judge set up) are creating stages. Caddie said he won't be. That just leaves you and Cybaster. If you really wanted to participate, I'm sure you could find a replacement.

I'm fine being a judge. With the few free time I have at some moments to work on Mugen stuff, I don't want to add the stress of having to create a stage at a fixed date.
