First off post here if you want to participate. You don’t have to share you gamemode idea, you can surprise all of us when the week is complete.

When the desired time has started and the theme has been presented, You will start creating your gamemode.
If you want, you can post your progress here or the Garry’s Mod WAYWO.

 Once your gamemode is complete, you must have hook.Call("wgcc_Fin_NextGamemode") at the end of it. 

Once the week has completed, you will have 30 minutes to upload the gamemode to and post it here. It would be nicer if you put a video along side it. [sp] If you want to post it earlier, you can post it here and i’ll download it and use the downloaded version when its judging time. [/sp]

The Judges will then proceed to look at the gamemode and choose who should be 1st, 2nd, or 3rd.

All the judging will be hosted on a Linux server. So don’t capitalize your shit.

  1. The judges will play your gamemode and take notes if necessary.
  2. Once the gamemode has ended, your gamemode should call the hook wgcc_fin_nextgamemode and stop doing anything ( i.e. Stop starting new rounds, etc )
  3. After 5 minutes, your gamemode will change to the next gamemode as well as the map the next gamemode will have have stated in the txt file in their gamemodes directory.

Rinse and repeat

The gamemodes should be completed on 16/7/15 9:00 am AEST

Here’s a little countdown thing from jackool

There are 2 themes, you can choose which one you want to do! The themes are: Cartoon or Magic, and you MUST have them somewhat incorporated in your gamemode.

The Marking Criteria is so you know what the judges will be marking you on. This is to give you a rough idea on what we are expecting.

Damnit I was working on a map…

Oooo just had an idea thanks to Niandra.

(Also: Yes.)

I thought had this great idea and then it fizzled…

So I can sell it, but it has to be for free?


So we can make whatever we want? I’ve been mulling over an idea for the past few days, not sure if it’s something I could get into a functional state in only 2 days, also not sure if I want to make it public.

I’m willing to participate regardless.

I wanna do it

Challenge accepted.

I’d love to but that time frame just kills me with my work schedule - put me down as interested just so I can see how my schedule will turn out and hop in if I can.

I’m in. Must it be multiplayer?

I’ll be a judge, looking forward to seeing what everyone makes :slight_smile:

I don’t know if I need qualifications to be a judge, but I made this:

I’m willing to be a judge

I’ll give it a try

Actually count me out, due to time constraints I won’t be able to participate

Can I be a judge? :slight_smile: pmed you

How do you expect to be sure the submission was made from scratch in the allotted time?

I do see that being a problem. Right now I’m just busting my brain trying to think of something to make. Usually in game jams a theme is selected and revealed when the contests starts to discourage that kind of thing.

I’d have much more fun taking the piss out of a chosen category than taking the piss out of my own choices.

Not going to participate with a time-frame less than 4-5 days (Already lost 10 hours), but can’t wait to see the results.

Maybe we should have a theme then? Ill come up with something then tell you when the time starts?

Aww fuck, it’s like the old Fretta competitions. I wish I could participate but won’t be around, good luck guys!
