The Failure D-Mod Contest deadline is quickly approaching (Monday!), and I was wondering how everyone was doing.

How many people will be entering their D-Mods? So far, I've received two entries.

Would anyone be interested in extending the deadline a week?

Edit (9/16 - 1:00 PM EDT): Due to general consensus, the deadline for the Failure D-Mod Contest has been extended one week, to September 25th.

I'll enter My D-Mod is like 95% done. I know I'll be done in time but extend it one week would be great, so I have the time to search it trough for bugs.

Nope, I won't be entering.

Not unless I can stick something together in the next 3 days, which really isn't likely.

I'd say extend the deadline, to give VonZeppelin time to finish and Marpro and sqwatermelon some fine-tuning opportunity.

I'm done. I think you already recieved the story dir from my beta-tester . Right now I'm sending the DMOD to you. Still, if someone else want to extend the deadline, it's ok to me, but in this case, I'll probably send you a new version, after I test it some more.

I won't be able to finish even with an extension. I've barely touched my DMOD. Sorry guys, but I'm withdrawing from the contest Though I'll gladly partner with someone who's already finished and take the prize

Well I have gotten something around 98% of it done and with the not sleeping I can probably finish in time... ...much to my surprise that is...
...however I still have yet to get any betas out due to some rather bizarre occurences... (Hotmail says there is a virus in the .dmod file when there is almost deffinently not one)

...and more time would allow for me to make one or two of the bosses even more sophisticated. (well maybe one of them is not at all right now.XD) develop more spells, improve the graphics, experiment with more interesting ideas, arrange my coding so people can use some of the better stuff with external procedures in there own .dmods make more risque dialog Blah blah blah....

But I likely would be doing that anyway in a later release.

What time on the 18th is it due exactly?XD

I've started toying with my d-mod again, so I may yet release something. It'll be desperately short if I do, so don't expect anything particularly good.

In doesn't really have any actual gameplay yet, but I've done some mapping... and an intro...

I'm starting to think my d-mod will be finished in time. But I doubt it will be competing for the prizes, as it has no combat (apart from a couple of enemies in the intro section), and will only take 10 minutes to complete.

Saying that, I do quite like it.

He's only saying that to make us not work anymore on our DMODs, to think he won't do anything valuble. In one week, we'll proably see a new quest coming(or maybe an epic, why not?).

Me, sabre, cypry, carrie, vonzepplin, weasley and sqwatermelon... This is going to be a huge contest (if all who say they will join actually join... I hope they do, yeah and also, sorry if someone who is going to join is not on this list I may have forgot someone )

Is this the largest contest ever?

That's if I finish mine. I should do, as it's very short, but I only really started it a couple of days ago (I scrapped my old idea).

It's good that we should have qiute a few entries. There's been a severe lack of d-mods recently.

Just to let you know, if I do happen to by some miracle win, I will let my runner-up have the prize instead, because I am not really trying to win one...

So when do these D-mods show up?
It would be interesting to see how people take my D-mod... ...Well I guess they would all download it but that is beside the point....

I can submit it 12:00 Pacific, but not Eastern... sorry, but I have to go to school tomorrow, and I have my own reasons for not submitting it tonight...

We never did make it very clear when we extended it to September 25.. it could've been extended to just 45 minutes prior to brunch for all they knew.

I'm a man, but I can change, if I have to.I guess. 
I'm just going to take a *wild* guess, and say that if any entries are withing 20 or so hours of the deadline, they won't get rejected from the contest.

Just a outa the smarting shiney blue guess.

Yeah... I'm not a very strict person when it comes to deadlines. But usually D-Mods come in within a few hours of the deadline. I also understand there may have been some confusion as to the actual time the D-Mods were due, so I'll accept VonZeppelin's D-Mod if it arrives tonight.

It looks like the contest D-Mods will be available to download tomorrow. I'm waiting to here back from joshriot to make sure that he has permission to distribute a song included in his D-Mod.

Sorry weren't we told we weren't allowed to release DMODs WITH mp3s and they had to be released separately? Or is that just what [i] was told
