FAQ - Read before posting [updated 17.07]
« on: July 09, 2014, 12:28:59 pm »

Read the rules first!
FAQs are going to be updated as we get more questions.

Q: What are the Haxxy Awards?
A: It's a contest to see who can make the best stuff for fun.

Q: What are the Raybanns?
A: It's an all-new contest based around daily and weekly challenges. See the Raybanns board for details.

Q: So how do I enter?
A: Create a topic with your entry in the correct section. That's it.

Q: Where do I submit videos?
A: 'Other' category. We'll make separate subcategory for them.

Q: Where do I submit update posters?
A: In "Art and Other".

Q: Where do I submit menu backgrounds?
A: In "Art and Other".

Q: Where do I submit .............?
A: Read the category-specific rules, they're in the other main boards of the Haxxy section.

Q: Can I submit stuff I made some time ago?
A: Yes, but read the rules carefully.

Q: What are the prizes?
A: As usual, new in-game items. Look carefully, you may find a little teaser somewhere around.

Q: I won't win anyway, so why would I enter?
A: How do you know? Everyone has chances, there are no da Vincis here. You can always try the screenshot category or, if you don't feel like doing anything, enter the lottery.

Q: I don't know how to...
A: Your question has probably been answered multiple times before, there might even be some guides or tutorials. In category-specific rules there are links to ones related to it. Or try search function.

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.

Q: How are the winners determined?
A: It's public voting. After the deadline, we sort the entries into categories and you will be able to send your picks in a PM to yours truly.

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.

Q: Can I submit multiple entries in one category?
A: Short answer: NO, only one entry per category
    Long answer: Some categories, like Maps, Art or Other, potentially allow for multiple entries, if they are all significantly different. You could, for example, enter with both Pixel art and Drawing, 'Normal' map and RocketJump map etc. This applies to all categories, really, but don't overuse it. If we see something wrong, we'll let you know either via pm or by posting in your thread.

Post your questions in this topic or, if it's something more, create a separate one.

Most probably like previous years, everyone gets the same stuff, except winner get it for all classes and runner-ups for one class of their choice.
Getting a first place prize disqualifies you from winning in a different category, though you'll still receive proper recognition for that. You can, however, get multiple runner-up prizes.

here I guess: http://www.ganggarrison.com/forums/index.php?board=81.0
Yup right there.

The questions so far start to make it look like nobody is really reading the category-specific rules.
Guess I could link to them somewhere, but come on.

But a guide isn't "purely artistic" in my opinion.

In the guides (writing) category, could I make a thread and have several posts to separate each sub-topic of my guide, as long as it's related to its entry?
