And about graphics, maybe Mateo would be so kind to share some of his tiles, otherwise you have still got the ice tiles from caves.
Well I should get mine done in time so no trouble with that aspect.

I'll think about the tiles later, but I may use Mateo's original winter theme tileset from one of the earlier versions of his hack if he lets me. Other than that, only a small part of the hack will probably take place outside, so not having winter tiles wouldn't be that much of a problem.

I discussed the idea behind this with Mateo the previous day, or so.. Anyway, we both found the contest a bit stressful since a participant could either:
1) give up or
2) try his/her best to get the hack done in time

As for myself, I won't have any trouble finishing this, but even in this situation, it's annoying to have a time-limit for something that you normally do just for fun; whenever you feel like it and without any pressure in having to get it done until [insert date here].

Maybe we should also try another contest, for example in the Spring, so that the hack you make wouldn't be any bigger than this, but at the same time, you would have a few months for the process and the contest hack could be a side-thing along all the rest?

Let me inform you that we've already got one submission some days ago. It was 10 minutes long, but it was good, and that's enough. And why wouldn't you try your best?

Because making even a small hack takes a lot of time. And at a time like this (when it's Christmas and new year coming up), many people don't have that, or want to spend it better.
For example, I've got a couple of close friends which I have not been able to see in the fall due to us studying in different places. And now we can be together more since we have all moved to our hometown for Christmas holiday. So spending most of that holiday to make a rom hack like this is totally not worth it. This was only about my situation though, and it can be very different to others.
Nevertheless, it's not about not trying to do your best. The issue is rather not having time to do your best.

After discussing it today, Pyro and I have decided to drop out from the contest. If you'll look back at my original entry, we were afraid we might not have enough time and have to drop out and that's really what its come down to. We haven't had a lot of time to actually work on it, and so we don't have much of anything worth releasing right now. New maps full of placeholder Object Events, some new characters, and plans that we won't have time to finish. Its been fun, though. And we'll be using this region again in a full hack in the future, so I don't consider it a wasted effort when we have worked on it, but yeah, not going to be able to finish this. Good luck to everyone else and looking forward to seeing what others come up with.

I might drop out as well - or more likely, release a version that is only about half done. There have been a few (two practically) general issues in life during the last few days, and I haven't felt like making games/hacking at all. I could have finished it in time, and I could even make it in time if I started right now, but I'll think I'll pass that opportunity. However, there is no reason for me not to upload the hack for people to test out, so why not just do that.

And since the story and the ideas that I planned for this hack weren't that bad, I think I'll finish the hack later and upload to the forums when I'm done with it. So for the contest, there would only be a "pre version".

Edit:
So, where are you supposed to submit the hack when it's ready?

I'm dropping out.
I've been busy recently, and have next to nothing for this.
