Right - the judging isn't over until June, but it sounded like people thought there was another mini challenge they could enter into before the main challenge began. In that regard, the mini challenges are over - me thinks.

edit: although... the headings for the threads for both the 3d and 2d mini challenges say mini challenge #1... so things are a bit ambiguous.

From what I have heard the 2nd minichallenge will happen after the main challenge

That would explain the ambiguity! I just figured people would be out of steam to have another mini at the end. But I failed to consider that one doesn't have to enter the main challenge in order to enter the mini's. No doubt all will be made clear in due time.

thanks

Thanks LostPencil, I knew I read something somewhere but couldn't remember where it was.

I wish that the 2nd mini was going on now. But on the plus side only a week left until the war begins!!!

is CgSociety friendly to the support they give to fresh talent, this year will be more of a learning experience as I am alwas looking to improve my skills and I think the best team to join this year would be a team that is friendly in giving advice, criticism etc... I am hoping that this competition will help me get good enough to play with the big boys next year. and who know's If I'm lucky I may be able to compete with them this year although I am lacking in the experience departmen. But I will deffinatly give it my all

one last question, If I registered as a different name on the dominance war site then my user on cgsociety will that affect anything? or is it fine, Its not too far off on gameartisan i am nobrows on here I'm nobrows27 do I have to reregister under the same user as mine here?

2 Questions:

1) I remember the controversy regarding the rules on shaders of last years, and this year it sounds like the rules have not changed if I've understood them correctly?
Meaning you're not allowed to make your own shaders in node-based shader editors but you're allowed/supposed to search around in game engines/editors and 3D packages shader libraries/packs, and use those with your own maps, correct?

Some extra (superfluous if you will?) clarification of that rule might be in order imo given the debate may arise this year aswell and it seems to me the wording of this years still opens for uncertainty (perhaps not merely out of the logic in the writing but perhaps because of varying expectations on the readers' parts).

It's a slightly different situation today aswell with availability of good and freeware realtime shader editors which may affect presumptions, expectations and opinions etc.

2) We're back to forums (voting? and) choosing forum-uniform races now? That's how I understood the rules.
Or does each individual choose his race (and class) individually?

SO just a quick question because I'm not clear. If we are entering we just have to make the thread here on CGS correct? We don't have to sign up anywhere on Gameartisans.org? OR do we have to go through that Join Now process on their website as wel?

no you don't have to sign up on the GA/DWIV site yet... just start a thread here and get to work. once you want to submit your work, you will have to sign-up on GA site.
