Well, I think the system will not let you send more than 12MB exaclty. Technically, the only big things are PDF manual and video file. If you are in trouble with the size, convert your PDF or video file to a lower quality one. There is always the possiblity of changing the video afterwards (once contest is finished) for a better quality one if you wanted. That's only for self-promotion purposes of your game as contestant.

Yes, it is the PDF.
We will try reducing the quality.

Entry "Space Rivals" submitted!  :)

It's a 4-player game, which can only have 4 players if you have the MultiPlay device developed by @TotO, which you obviously can't have at this time though, because afaik there's only a prototype available at this point (and we have that).
But it can also be played with 3 players using 2-player adapter and keyboard. As long as you make sure you get a 2-player adapter with diodes to avoid clashes.
Or even just 2 players if you want. But 4 players is of course the most fun.

Yay! Now to celebrate completing this project!  :)

Good luck to everyone!

Why not sitting two players on the keyboard:

P3: Cursor keys and little Enter

P4:QWAZ and Space

Keyboard to plenty keys. Or offer an option to enter keys?!  :) :) :)


Good luck with the game!  :) :) :)

I've been told horror stories about keyboard clashes, so I didn't dare try any of that.
Certainly not allowing people to define their own keys. That would definitely result in clashes.
But as far as I can gather from listening to the experts, using QAOP+space and 2 joysticks at the same time should be safe, so that's what we did.

I never thought the actual "default" key schemes (Fruitty Frank pops to my mind) were used to avoid mechanical/electrical key clashes  :o
It's so strongly written in my brain I thought it seemed a natural choice for pc games. Eventually "WSAD" and cursor keys become the more natural choice in Quake era.

Aw. :)
There have been a lot of frogs in indie games this year.  My mobile game is similar (though without the cool Nebulus style tower rotation you got going on).   Looking forward to playing this one.  Looks fantastic. :)

Take into account that contest rules state that the game must run on a real 464 without (hardware) expansions. ¿Only 2 players then?

The word "expansions" makes me think of things like more memory or a harddisk or HxC or MegaFlash etc.

A simple 2-player cable doesn't fall into the "expansion" category to me. If you categorize a 2-player cable as an "expansion" then a joystick must also have to fall into this category... in which case you can't actually play our game at all, because it requires at least 2 players - i.e. one on keyboard + one on joystick, or two on joysticks.

I can understand the MegaPlay being categorized as an expansion though, because it's a more rare piece of hardware withsomewhat advanced components, and it (kinda) gives the CPC new inputs it wasn't born with.
But a 2-player cable (and joysticks for that matter) should fall into the standard accessories category in a game-development contest in my opinion.

I guess we'll have to wait and see what the judges say, but I'll definitely be disappointed if they complain about needing a 2-player cable in order to be 3 players.

I think that should not be a problem, but I would have asked first to avoid the risk.

Anyway, good luck in the contest!

@mr_lou: Certainly, anything to be considered as "expansion" is something that's not the CPC and a joystick/pad. However, I understand that your game is playable without any expansion (no matter considerations), and It also adds the possiblity of playing 4 players with an expansion. That's not the same as requiring 4 joysticks and a connector to play the game.

The spirit of the rule is twofold: as a constraint for contestants to be on equal conditions when being evaluated, and as a way to ensure the game will be playable for the maximum quantity of people. If your game was impossible to play without extra hardware, that would certainly be a problem. But your game provides extra functionality if you have the hardware, being playable without it. That should be fine most of the time.

As the deadline for the competition looms, I'd just like to say a few words if I may...

I've IMMENSELY enjoyed creating my game.
It has been a heck of an experience. Very stressful, but very satisfying and hugely enjoyable at the same time.
(Just like a game of Dark Souls)!

BEST WISHES to everyone everywhere that has taken part!
I can't wait to see all the entries!
It looks like there may be some real gems in there!

This will be the best year for the CPC in a long time!

Yes, I agree. The competition is a great incentive to get people making new games, and that alone is great; but besides the cpctelera it'll be a complete game changer (no pun intended).

I'm new here, but I'm having a blast programming for the CPC so I guess I'll stay ;)

It will be on twitter as well as on #CPCRetroDev frontpage next week :)
