@slicer4ever Would it be okay for those with low bandwidth (me for instance) to upload to a cloud storage site (GoogleDrive) and then send the link?

Or was the issue Thaumaturge ran into a once off glitch/bug/hickup?

Yeah that should be okay (I asked Slicer the same question last week in the administration thread).

Yes that's ok.  it seems @Thaumaturge's upload caused the server to throw a bad alloc and crashed the server for some reason.  I'm upping the virtual ram pagesize right now hopefully that will fix the issue for what occurred.  i'm not sure why it happened with his as i tested with a 200+MB without issue.

Oh dear! XD;

Clearly the server is taking part in the judging this year, and found my entry wanting. :P

Ok, i had to take down the server again to make it work with the new page size.  you should be able to try it now, hopefully no more bad allocs for that.

To all contestants: If the site is down, or the upload fails, it is perfectly acceptable to provide a link in this thread from another site your entry.  I will manually enter in any that couldn't be submitted through the site.

Fair enough, and hopefully so! I've set it uploading once again, I believe. Thank you for your efforts in getting this to work! ^_^

For safety's sake, let me re-post my Dropbox submission link:

Cranking out levels is proving very difficult indeed!

I have 4 so far which is not very many and hoping to get a few more on the go. Hopefully I can pick up the pace a bit.
Mind you I have been fixing a ton of bugs and re-balancing the game in the process. I *think* I have it all balanced correctly now so with any luck I can power through a get a few more done before the deadline.

I really don't want to be up too late tonight either, but that depends on how I get on.

Here's a sneak peak at one of the earlier levels which, despite its simplicity, uncovered a lot more bugs than I'd like to admit:

Oh, that's a good point: since my entry--and thus the associated picture--didn't upload, would you take my entry's image from my blog entry, please? It should be the same, as I recall.

There we go! Strawberry Alert is as finished as I could manage.

@slicer4ever I'm getting connection refused from the submit page. I've attached a zip file to the blog entry, is that good enough?

I've added your entry's to the site.  I've added support for you to be able to edit the description of your entry on the submission page.  click on your entry and you should see a pencil mark next to the description label, click it, edit, save and it should be good to go.  You will have to logout/login as i had to make a change to add one more cookie so it could detect that an entry is/isn't yours.

That seems like a useful feature--thank you for adding it! As it happens in my case, it looks as though the image and description captured successfully, I'm glad to say. ^_^

Hmm, I'm getting an "invalid input" error when I try to submit my entry. I'm not sure if it's a bug or some submission criteria I've missed, but I'm going to upload to Google Drive just in case.

EDIT: Done uploading!

Game is available at https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B6AaQLQ2WvEIT1d6TXhPUWRMU1E/view?usp=sharing

Description: A short first-person experience that takes place in a strange castle.

Sketch Week of Awesome Official 3rd Blog Entry:

So I managed to jam something together. Haven't play tested anything so I'm guessing a ton of bugs are present.

I didn't add any sound fx, and only 1 level but its done I guess...

Here is a google drive link just incase I can't upload to the official site.

Had fun, but this last bit was way more stress inducing than it should've been.

Good Luck to all Game Jammers!

Oh and the Name of my game is: Alien Day / Heroic Knight

Whelp, it took me all day but I finally have a range of level maps to play against.

Some of them might a little too hard or a little too easy but hey ho!  TAB will skip levels ;-)

So I am all done and ready with my submission!
Here's my backup link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0ByC640XVJpKJdzkwSWw3aGNfNXM/view?usp=sharing
[Edit: I Noticed a bug, so I've re-uploaded/ The above is a new link compared to a moment ago!]
[Edit2: And again!]

I've submitted to the competition website too but that'll take another few minutes.

(I had to truncate the name of my game for the website because the max character limit is 32?!)

Anyway, good luck to everybody with getting your submissions in on time! And well done to those who have submitted already.

There's only about an hour left!!

EDIT: Oh damn, there's another hour left. My heart almost stops for nothing.

Quick emergency post: just in case, here's my game in Dropbox.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/6aj57mavqe9cwx2/Castilla1528.zip?dl=0

OK, now that it seems that things went right, the deadline has passed and I can breath again, a quick update on my participation:

- I'll post a Post-mortem as soon as possible, perhaps tomorrow, with updates since my last devlog post.

- I've uploaded my game twice today in the contest website. The last one was some minutes ago. It seems that the site is correctly using the second version. In case it doesn't, the Dropbox link in my previous post contains the file, too (it's uploading right now, but should be online in some minutes).

That's it. Congratulations to everyone! After I get some rest from this crazy day, I'll give it a try to every participating game :)

Sorry to say it, but I'm going to have to pull out on this one.

Final update explains it well enough, so I'll just link that here.

Good luck to those who are still trucking away!

 

That's unfortuanate to hear :(

Looks impressive.  the reason for the invalid input is due to it being larger than 250MB, so i just have to manually add it in.
