ABBUC Software Contest 2012 - Important!

Recommended Posts

The official ABBUC website was hacked and is down for maintenance. It seems, that the email system is affected too. So please send all emails regarding the software contest to my private email address, which is:

 

[email protected]

 

and please copy (CC) it to: [email protected] and [email protected] (hope it will work again soon).

 

I attach the rules in this posting again and would be happy if somenone could pin this thread until August 31st (Deadline). And please distribute a link to this topic as it is hard to find information about the competition with the ABBUC website down. :(

 

Best regards and many thanks,

 

Sascha Kriegel

Head of ABBUC Software Ressort

 

2012

Sorry to be a pain... i was going to send a single XEX file rather than an ATR (since it's a single load) - is this okay?

There is no pain, only a good question.

 

Yes, as long as it loads on the real hardware (of course I will put a DOS or Gamedos on the disc, depends on the submissions) everything is fine.

You should have my entry now too: Keep on Koastin'. It won't need much squeezing as it's only 4K ;)

 

Yes, it arrived. Nice little game, thank you very much for sending it in. I wish you good luck in the competition. :)

This was my mistake. GoodByteXL corrected all the data and the rules you find on the official pages show the correct year. It´s obvious which year we´re talking about, isn´t it? :)
