Greetings, filmgoers!

I'll be uploading the files you need to watch the films in reply posts. After you've watched all nine of the films, please vote and give each one a rating between 1 (vomit-inducing) and 10 (simply the best) by how well you liked it. You may be more influenced by writing, the story idea, scripting prowess--it doesn't matter, use your own criteria.

Edit: I forgot to mention that if authors vote they should rate their own films as "10".

General Viewing Instructions

1. Save all the attachments in this topic to a directory.
2. Some entries have just a hold file and some have a hold file and a demo. You can tell what files go together by their prefix number.
3. Import a hold file from the "Change Location" dialogue. You may want to import them all at once, but doing one entry at a time makes it harder to remember which demos belong to which holds, I think.
4. Start a "new game" for the hold.
5. If the entry doesn't have a demo with it, then it is interactive, and you should follow whatever instructions are shown in the hold. Skip steps 6 through 8 for these interactive films.
6. Press F6 to bring up the demos screen.
7. Click the "import" button and import the demo file for this entry.
8. Click the "watch" button to watch the demo.
9. Repeat steps 3-8 for each entry.

Have fun!

-Erik

For entry 4, "Fairy Tale", you need to go to the title screen and press "Watch Demo" to see the film. The demo doesn't seem to show up if you press F6.

Edit: Also, shouldn't this thread be stickied?

Good point! I had to Change Location to this hold then I had to choose Watch Demo from the Drod Main Menu screen.

I just want to say that all the movies were FANTASTIC!!!

Can I suggest changing the 'entries wanted' advert from the JTRH intro screen to 'your votes needed' or simlah.

All cool films. I voted :thumbsup

Stupid question: Any chance of having all this in a large uncompressed* zip file to download?

*)uncompressed because all holds and demos are already zipped and zipping them does not really reduce a lot of filesize.

I compressed it anyway - it made it a little bit smaller.

I'm not sure about this rating system - my post went to +2 in just a few minutes but the attachment has only been downloaded once, and that was by me to test it. I might have uploaded a >>CENSORED<< for all you know! :)

I gave you a point because someone actually reacts on my request (which is very unusual, I noticed). :) If you do not like that, then give it back. (I have only a very small amount of mod points... :?)

Heh... Just in time for voting this thing.

I must say that all of the movies are fantastic!

They are so funny, I haven't laughed out loud that many times in an hour before!
:lol :thumbsup :lol

-- Tim

PS. I'm definitely going to make a hold with something like that...

I was voted to the bottom of the list (#3) but that is O.K. with me. I wasn't going to enter because I could not think of a story to tell. Then the idea of, a dumb open mike nite with really bad jokes, came to me and I tried it out. I am glad I did, I learned a lot about scripting that I would not have learned otherwise. :D

Everyone did a great job. My only other idea had been to do a variation on the story of the 3 Little Pigs, I am glad I didn't mine would not have been as good as the 3 Ugly Goblins (#4), that was a really good one.

My favorite first favorite was Beethro's Trial but then I watched The Tale of Nikbub Budkin and was just entranced. So much effort was put in to it and by a natural story teller. Two thumbs up to Jacob the creator. :thumbsup

I thought everyone did an excellent job and we had so many more folks that voted then I expected.

I am glad I enter these contest they broaden my whole DROD experience and I get to see some really neat stuff. I had no Idea that there was a tree thing that you could place that looked like a shack or house. That was so cool. :glasses

Lots of quality entries, lots of votes--a good contest all around! I admit I started out a little worried about participation. Meck Meck predicted we'd have ten entrants, and impressively, he was off by just one.

First place goes to Jacob for the Tale of Nikdub Budkin. There were some good chucklers in there and a nice twist at the end. Definitely fun to watch! Jacob gets his 100 rank points, and should decide what he'd like from the prize pile along with his Lovecraft book.

Repeat contestwinner, Doom, picked up second prize missing first by a few off votes. Borrowing the plot of three little pigs was interesting and started me wondering from the beginning how Beethro would get into the three goblin houses. Like Jacob's hold, the... man, I was about to give away the ending. Nevermind! Doom gets fifty rank points.

Vylycyn's the Showroom is our third-place winner. I liked how instead of having just one main character, there was a band of people travelling together and this allowed for some amusing interactions. My favorite part was the Seep helping the band in exchange for a rather unnecessary sacrifice. Clever scripting made the story action-packed. 25 points go to Vylycyn.

I felt that a good effort was put into each of the entries. You all deserve a pat on the back. Nice job! Some more mini-reviews on the films would be fun.

One rookie showed--Xander. He gets 10 ranks points for sticking his neck out. Stick around for more contests, buddy!

Speaking of sticking around--there is a part 2 of this contest coming up soon which will test people's voice acting.

-Erik

Hmm. "Xander" is a handle given to me by someone who entered, but it's not actually a forum name. So I'll need to hear from that one on what his forum name is.
