Smallwood Throwback Contest

It's time for another contest!

Click on the comments to see the details...

Smallwood Throwback Contest

General Idea:
The general idea of this contest is to make a "traditional" D-Mod, using only what's available in the original game.

Rules:
1. Your D-Mod can't use any of the following:
a) New graphics (Only those available in the main game)
b) New spells or items
c) New MIDIs/sound
d) New scripts
No wait. New scripts are allowed

2. The D-Mod can be any size. This includes how long it takes to complete the game, and how large the map is.

3. The D-Mod must use Dink as the protagonist, but the story does not have to be related to the story of the main game (it doesn't have to be a sequel, prequel, or any other -quel).

4. Try to stick to "traditional" Smallwood as much as possible. This means no elemental damage, new leveling systems, new stats, etc. Want to create some fancy puzzle Dink has to get past? Just try not to be too fancy.
This rule is going to be a judgement call on a lot of things. Basically, if it doesn't feel at all like the main game, it's out.

5. Your dmod may have already been started (and may be redefined to fit the criteria of this contest) BUT it cannot be a dmod you have previously uploaded in any form. For example, Sharp could not take Milderr 3 and use it for this contest.

6. Team efforts welcome (only one prize per placing) but a minimum of 4 entries before we "have a contest"!

7. Entries should be uploaded here, to be judged by any eligible staff member (ie, no one who's entered the contest!).

8. The deadline for entries is 8th of July 2012.
**EXTENDED** to the 22nd of July
**EXTENDEDAGAINFORTHELASTTIME** to the 29th of July

Good luck!

Thanks Pillbug for the suggestion

How come that every time I want to make a new D-Mod there seems to be an upcoming contest?

All my previous D-Mods have their origins in previous contests haha.... Might as well join this one. Beware, contenders!

"Can we use Mystery Island?"

I'd say not... It's a D-Mod, not the original game, even if it was made by the original team. A somewhat weird style D-Mod at that, too.

No one wants to reject an entry, that's for sure. If it looks like the author totally disregarded the theme, though, (e.g. the dmod is based on showcasing a new, choice-based battle system!) then we might outright reject it.

But certainly not easily. I don't think anyone who at least tries to follow the theme needs to worry about that.

Breaking the clear rules is another thing, for example if the dmod has new midis, it's automatically out.

Challenge Accepted.

And Glenn, MI was mentioned already so I doubt it. Pure vanilla graphics and sound.
But we could still use a little clever scripting...

Who thinks using Dinkedit Vanilla to make it is over-doing it?

Also: The titlescreen image. We can't use anything fancy for that either can we...

I might try to get something. But then again, I tried for the last two contests too, and both times I failed horribly.

And is it okay if I interpret rule 4 as being directed mostly at gameplay and not so much at story? The DMOD I have planned is a bit of a humour-type DMOD, so I'd have to make it a little bit more serious if the story should also be "traditional". (Not too much as the original game is also a little bit wacky, but I might need to change my final boss from a potato into an evil wizard. )

Who thinks using Dinkedit Vanilla to make it is over-doing it?

While it is certainly in the spirit of the contest, when I read the rule "no custom graphics", I had another thought: this contest is perfect for trying out my editor. Even though it is already capable of using new artwork (but not of editing dmods with new artwork), that isn't very easy currently. However, if you need to stick to the rules, my editor should be very usable.

So thank you for these rules. While you can play with my editor, I'm working on decompilation of custom artwork, so that when you know how it works, you can also edit dmods which weren't made for this contest with it.

Oh, and I'll consider entering the contest myself, but I'm a bit busy, so that might not work out.

Anyone who needs help with getting the editor to work (that should be much easier than it was last time), please send me e-mail (wijnen@debian.org) and I'll do my best to help you.

A piece of advice to you new developers, you don't need to add any sound/midi files to your D-Mod sound folder. The "game" will look for the sound files in the original dink folder.

I think I have an idea now. If I can make it work.

I think the following rule is a big issue for me, when I've already created some small unusual things in terms of scripting.

Try to stick to "traditional" Smallwood as much as possible. This means no elemental damage, new leveling systems, new stats, etc. Want to create some fancy puzzle Dink has to get past? Just try not to be too fancy.
This rule is going to be a judgement call on a lot of things. Basically, if it doesn't feel at all like the main game, it's out.

well i hope that title screens can be custom(as that now is more useful to identify which mod you chose to play and it can make any entry stand out)
and further the only question i have is related a bit to my entry but in another way than the first and that namely is can scripts use midi's out of the main game or are they Dependant on he mod's music folder?(if so i know i will need to copy all midi's which isn't that much of a problem)

1. Your D-Mod can't use any of the following:
a) New graphics (Only those available in the main game)
b) New spells or items
c) New MIDIs/sound


In the original there was that scroll used to open up a gate behind Goodheart castle... If I added my own scroll which's function did pretty much the same thing, that would still be okay, right?
May 18th 2012, 01:51 AM

What do you mean? New graphics? No. Same scroll different script? Yes of course.

Technically a new script but no new graphic would constitute a 'new spell' wouldn't it?

Personally I'd say this is a borderline case as it is more a story progressing item than a true new spell.

I think every decision should boil up to the point where the developer thinks "Will this alter the feeling of the classic game?"

I don't think a new scroll would "hurt" that particular feeling; but I do think a new spell, like "EARTHQUAKE" would alter the original feeling.

I think rule b and rule c are kinda over the edge. I like the idea of sticking to the traditional style and not having new graphics, but new items and spells will only make the gameplay better and new MIDIs will make playing the game a much cooler experience. But I guess that's where the *contest* is.

In all honesty, its difficult to stick to traditional smallwood considering the sheer number of D-mods we've all played.
I had to go ahead and replay Dink before I started (okay I cheated and just watched Robj's playthrough ).

New graphics aren't a problem for me so long as my Titlescreen image still gets an OK. New items and spells, that indeed is quite a hard thing to interpret; Scrolls that unlock an invisible barrier such as in the original, seems okay to me; Theres already a scroll graphic for it (pickup if you wish as well as inventory icon).

As to the "No new midis" rule, I have to admit its a tough call trying to integrate the original tracks only to specific scenes, but its not overall impossible; I've managed so far, but thats primarily because my Dmod has no towns yet. It probably should (and I have some planned), a Dmod with no towns is nothing like the original.
May 18th 2012, 07:39 AM
dinkdead.gif
"Technically a new script but no new graphic would constitute a 'new spell' wouldn't it?"

I guess so
I forgot what this item actually was tbh, and couldn't think of anything wrong with opening a gate...

But anyway as you say, it's more part of the story than an actual new spell as such.

I think the idea of the contest is to create a D-Mod similar to older D-Mods. That's why it's called Smallwood Throwback contest. It shouldn't be that hard to create one. After all, we have much more advanched editors than those used back then. The "no new MIDIs" and "no new graphics" rules are there just to make this a contest. It would be far too easy otherwise.

You feed the madness, and it feeds on you. 
Extended to 22nd of July? Sweeet... I'm quickly putting together a last minute entry than... it might not be as good as it could have, since I'm only just starting it now... but It'll be another entry so who cares... lol.

I'm about 70% done... I think this is the most work I've done on any Dmod in this amount of time in a while, started 4 days ago and its looking good... Hopefully I'll be finished in time for the 22nd..

Meh, I don't need another miracle, if I dont get it done in time, then it will *almost* be done, and I can just spend time getting rid of all the bugs and then upload it anyway.

Right now, unfortunately, I'm operating on the assumption that I'm going to have to do that too. So I'm going ahead and doing some of the clean-up and detailing work I've been putting off. But it has to be done anyway, so if it goes well, maybe I can actually get the plot done, we'll see.

If there was no extension, would Meta be the only entrant?
If so, perhaps another week might drop from the sky

Eh, well I trust people are just working on it as long as possible/leaving the uploading to the last second. I know I am.

I'd say let it end, but if a day after the deadline there still aren't 4 entries, then give extra time.

Ugh. I don't really mind extending the deadline by a week (or to the end of July I guess) if Sparrowhawk feels like it; However, I think that's where the line should be drawn for good.

You should drink more coffee. And do drugs. And catnip.

I feel like I'm getting bogged down, so I'm probably still going to cut it off where I planned to when the deadline was today, but at least I'll have an extra week to polish it now. It current has some pretty rough edges, so that's definitely a good thing.

Haha, I'm glad for the extension... At this point I was starting to think "22nd in England and America is a few hours after 22nd in Australia and the staff won't close it til morning... how many extra hours can I squeeze in?"

As luck would have it, just as I'm about to upload my entry that I've been hoarding for well over a month, I discover a weird crash bug that I can't solve.

I guess I'll just submit the dmod anyway now, and patch it up if I can figure out the crash bug later.
