so is that about art or does it include pieces of geometry

because most of my maps are actually well covered-up frankensteins of other maps

or assets in general from stock maps or ones which were released with the intent of being reused by others (like agh's and some of taters's stuffs)
Not copying is about art.
I don't think anyone can spot 'borrowed' geometry, especially if the art is completely changed.

How are the Haxxy Awards judged?
ie. by you or public voting or what?

It's always been public voting, and I don't really think it'll be any different this year.
Maybe I'll make it a poll instead of sending me pms, but we'll see about that.

That really should have been in the FAQ, I assumed it was judged by you personally.

did you know that spinning stars work like this???

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. execute_strings on fire off the shoulder of Overmars. I watched object-beams glitter in the dark near the room_goto_fix. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears...in...rain. Time to die.

Oh well, if you really think so.

That sounded a bit demanding, sorry :/

I don't blame you though. With FAQ writing which isn't based on actually frequently-asked questions, you as the author will often forget very basic things because they're obvious to you, but you don't realise they might not be to others.

Please read the rules carefully next time, but I'll say again.
The entries close on August 20th, but if people need some extra time, I might give an extra week.

Actually, no.
Hopefully I'll distribute those along with 2013 ones.

Q: Can I use stuff from Gang Garrison, like sprites or music?
A: As long as main idea is yours, yes. Making a video using them is fine, but throwing them together and saying it's your pixel art - not so much.

FAQ updated:
Q: Is tracing allowed when creating pixel art?
A: As much as I don't support it, it is allowed within reason. Don't resize image, fix some colours and claim it's gg2 - make the characters look like the gg2 ones. Try to capture the characteristics that differ our characters from a certain other group of mercenaries.
