Byte-Off: 2019...the first official NESmaker competition.

Post by TheNew8bitHeroes » Mon Feb 11, 2019 3:53 am

The first official NESmaker development competition has begun! All of the pertinent details can be found on the website, www.TheNew8bitHeroes.com.

For the next four weeks, I will be generally off grid, monitoring but not intervening. My hope is that you all work as a community to develop some amazing demo projects that really showcase what NESmaker is capable of!

I have a question about the rule: "All content has to be original, either created by the entrant or used with permission."

Is it acceptable to use public domain material, e.g. is it OK to use Dracula as a character or use "Camptown Races" as BGM? (Both examples are hypothetical.)

I'm not the rule maker, but I'd say both are fine.

Public domain stuff has been used for free stuff for years and decades just make sure if your using things like Dracula to use your own rendition not like capcoms version.

In Joe's most recent video, he said that the judging is complete, the winners have been determined, and all that remains is to put together the event, which is coming "soon."
