Well, this is where architects are able to strut their stuff. This will be the traditional poll as seen above. People should be voting following these guidlines:

1) Entries should be judged based on how the new room compare with their older counterparts. Judge based on making sure the puzzle stays the same in all aspects, use of scripting in an ingenuitive and novel way (If they used scripting, that is), and the general feel you get from looking at the new version. Please try to be honest and fair when judging them.

DO NOT JUDGE AN ENTRY BASED ON THE ENRANCE AND EXIT ROOMS. THEY WERE INTENDED TO BE SIMPLE AND POINTLESS!
For more on that, see my second-last paragraph.

2) Do not take into account the fact that some people don't have the full DROD 2.0, and therefore don't have the same styles as people who own the full version. If you happen to be partial to "Deep Spaces", don't mark a hold down because they used "Foundation". It's all based on the actual use of elements.

3) Competitors rate their own entries as a perfect "10". I mean, you want your entry to win, don't you?

4) In the event of a tie, the two people will have a cagematch fight to the death. No, I'm just kidding. In that event, the winner will be the person with the most '10' votes for them. If they have the same amount of '10' votes, then an impartial judge will be brought in.

5) The poll closes on July 26th, so be sure to get your vote in before then!

The DAA's secretary would also like to point out that some architects broke the rule of a simple exit/entrance, and he was quite upset with that. However, he isn't going to penilize anyone this time. But follow the rules! They were made for a reason!

So, feel free to vote now after taking a good, long, and thorough look at all the entries. Meanwhile, I'm going to post the entries and get everything ready for the second part of the contest (Which, just to let you all know, will have the prizes listed in it. Honest!). Be sure to check the General forum within the next little bit!

I guess I'm kind of confused...it seems like part of the Smitemaster's challenge is to identify the room being rebuilt. So for those of us who might not have the time to play through/find all those old rooms in AE...what if we have no idea what hold the original room is from, and if the puzzle has changed? It's certainly one thing to evaluate a room based on its aesthetic qualities, but it's another to compare it to an original that I haven't ever seen.

Game on,

All zip files have the AE version of the room along with the redone version of the room. I probably should have mentioned that.

By popular request, here are all of the entries' hold files only. Should be a much smaller download.

Is the AE version of the hold just a png file?

Winzip is showing me 3 files in each zip: Entry #old.png, Entry #new.png and Entry #.hold. DROD AE refuses to load the hold file.

I am confused.

The hold file is the JtRH version, complete with scripting etc. You only need to see what the original looked like, so yeah, you don't have an AE version of the hold, only the pic.

Sorry man, I got nothing in any of my email accounts, so I'm not sure what to do. Since I did send replies to everyone, I would have hoped that you contacted me before the deadline again to make sure that I got it, as that would have ensured your status in there.

So, due to a lack of any real choice from me, I'm going to leave the poll and the contest running as it is, and simply remind you next contest to ensure that you make sure your entry is in. Erik, if you have anything to add/change, feel free.

Sorry!

Meck Meck, I am sorry these things happen. Even with your contest from last month there was one person who didn't have his guesses confirmed, so maybe you can understand. I think we just need to be very clear that contest runners will reply back with confirmation for submissions, and if the submitters doesn't get a confirmation he needs to follow up.

If you will post your submission here, it won't go into the poll, but I'll give you 12 rank points for the effort and other people can have a look at it if they want.

-Erik

What is a .rar file is that a form of zip? I couldn't open it :blush I really wanted to see what you had done.

I wasn't sure my second entry would get posted, I had not heard anything back about it, sure was glad to see it though. Won't say which one. O:-

I am glad that we should expect a notice that our entry has been received. That tells me to check up next time myself.

Hope I get a look soon :w00t
