OK, so a bunch of people have had problems uploading their entries. I'm willing to give a bit of leeway to people when it comes to getting entries up on top, but only if they've registered their submission. That is, you have to go to the contest page, hit 'Your Entry,' and fill out the fields on the form - just don't attach any files. Make sure that goes through first, and then try editing the entry to attach the files. I'm contemplating whether it's worth extending the deadline by a few days to get the problems sorted out. For now, assume that it's not changing and you've got all of 2.5 hours remaining.

I kept getting errors but when I restarted it a last time to copy what the error was saying it just went through. Everythings up now. Thanks superpig :).

Wait a minute... the contest rules page says the deadline is April 3, 2008, at 2300 hours EST and it's 2313 hours(less one hour for daylight saving time) on April 2, 2008 EST here in the Eastern USA (according to http://www.time.gov/timezone.cgi?Eastern/d/-5). There should be 23 hours remaining, not 2, right? I'm confused. Oh crap!

It's never a good idea to post things like this after midnight, when the date is misleading... [smile]

Still, I'd recommend registering your entry now, even if you wait until the last minute to actually upload your game.

Uploading the files to the registrated entries does not work either (Browser Ubuntu/Firefox, Ubuntu/Opera, Windows/Explorer and Windows/Firefox). Any clue?


BTW, it's not your browsers or internet connection that's causing the problem. It's a setting on gamedev's server. They are running IIS and there is a timeout for script execution. My entry was about 55MB which would take about 15 minutes to transfer on my connection. It seems that they have the timeout set to something a little less than ten minutes.
