Song
- .MP3 or .OGG required. 128 bitrate or higher.
- 1:10-2:30 minute length.
- No Songs from a previous BEST-mix or tournament within the last year. If someone already registered the song you wanted for this tournament; convince them to change it, or tough luck - pick another.

OTHER STUFF

-------------------------------------------
Quick Rule Summary:
DDR STYLE ONLY
1:10-2:30 Song Limit
PNG Graphics
Not Anonymous!
-------------------------------------------

Scoring formats will use the following format:
Light: /5
Standard: /5
Heavy: /10
Presentation: /5 (Remember, this is not "graphics", this is the overall presentation of the file (including work put into extras, if the graphics happen to be sub-par.) There is no tilt score, so if judges want, extras can make up for a poor score here.

For a Grand Total of /25 Possible Points

ALL JUDGING MUST HAVE FEEDBACK ON WHY IT WAS GIVEN THAT SCORE! Judging without feedback will NOT be counted in any situation.

I am hoping for this to be an old Judge + Public Review Tournament. If you wish to be a judge, send me a PM and I'll see how things work out.

Not going to clutter the registration page with this BUT

Perhaps it would help to add an EDIT button to our posts so we can change our songs when we decide to.

EDIT: Oh it is here but not the other thread. What did you do!? :shock:

Apparently editing is a board wide issue.

Did you set a limit as to when we could edit or something? Seems like 5 minutes before you are no longer allowed to edit.

Ah, the phpBB 3 setting had it to be 3 minutes.

I just fixed it so you can edit however long you need to after posting.

Haha, sweet! I can't wait to enter this! :D

The only problem is the one entry limit...Of course, it's normal for me to submit only one entry, so this probably isn't much of a change :P

It just makes it a bit harder to choose because I can only choose one! :lol:

think of it as a challenge. Any restriction is something that makes the tourney harder, and makes you think of ideas on how to work on these.

but then, in most contests like these, you should always choose only one song. (not suggesting ONLY ONE TECHNO, ONLY ONE EPILOGUE, etc)

Wow, it sure seems like this contest isn't getting very much attention so far, and it doesn't help that the deadline is already only about a couple weeks away. Where did everybody go?

BlueSS, get this on the BMS front page like BM2.

Lots of acronyms beginning with B there, but I digress.

I wouldn't mind a nice, small simfile pack for a change, actually. Especially after Anything Goes 2.

I should have my file done by the deadline. It's a pretty challenging song to step the way I want to, but I'm having fun with it.
