    Is it just me, or do these kinds of votes annoy others as well?

    ^ I Think people should look at some other hacks before jumping to conclusions.

      That's exactly what I think. As good as some hacks are, I highly doubt for any one hack to excel in every single category. To be the best at everything is a little bit difficult to obtain. The votes need to be diversified at least a little. I mean, come on. I guess whatever floats their boat though.

      Hacks I'd like to see go far:
      - Ruby Destiny: Rescue Rangers
      - Legend of Fenju (and/or Flame of Rage)
      - Azure Horizons
      - Pokémon Old White

      Hacks that most likely will go far:
      - Light Platinum
      - Legend of Darkrai
      - Pokémon Crono
      - Eruption
      - Toxic Purple

      There's a certain type of hack out there that attracts attention and, because this competition relies heavily on the opinions of the people (as Vrαi said), those types of hacks are the ones that will excel, regardless of quality (let me mention that I'm not saying that any of those hacks aren't of high quality).
      I'd also like to see some nominations for hacks that weren't originally posted this year. 2008 was a pretty good year in my opinion (even though I was new here for most of it and was absent from this forum for about half that time) and I'd like to see some of those "classics" (like the ones in the first list) given proper credit

      I'd add RD Life of Guardians and maybe Nirvana...

        I Think Azure is way too under appreciated, The mapping is fantastic.

        I wish there were a few more categories like Most Original Feature, Best Presentation and Most Influential. Also the description for Most Engaging Hack is a little confusing.

        That makes me think we're supposed to vote for the hack we think is most difficult.

          Argh, I've been away too long.



          I've hardly seen any of these hacks, really, and I need to play some of them, at least before I vote...

            I think that a high-quality hack should win.
            Some like (in my opinion):
            • Crono
            • LightPlatinum
            • Never B&W
            • Ruby Destiny - LoG
            • Old White
            • ...
            And some others...
            Actually, I think that zel did a smart thing when he pulled SG out of the competition, because 97% votes would be for SG.

            Ya think? I don't know... SG is great hack but the ones ya mentioned are better since they are younger then SG... so SG might get votes only from beginners who SG found accidentally.

              I can really see Life of Guardians and Light Platinum going far. I would like to see Crono go far, but people really did have a lot of difficulty patching it.

              But so far, I think it's between LoG and Light Platinum. They both deserve to win.
              Good Luck Jagold and Wes.

              =D

                I agree with Colorful Summer. You would see so many votes from people that have less than ten posts that look like this:

                Today's the last day of Round 1. Hopefully everybody got their votes in on time.

                  Rescue Rangers is one of my All-Time favorites. I don't think it's the best hack out there, but I think it's one of the most enjoyable ones!

                  I hate how people only choose 1 or 2 hacks and only vote for them. Spread the love, guys!

                  My picks were:

                  Best Mapping: Ruby Destiny Life of Guardians
                  Best Scripting: Ruby Destiny Rescue Rangers
                  Most Graphical Appeal: Never Black and White
                  Best Storyline: Ruby Destiny Life of Guardians
                  Most Engaging Hack: Brown 2009
                  Overall Favorite: Ruby Destiny Life of Guardians


                  Notice how I picked four different hacks? LOL

                  DJG is the bestest hacker ever!
                  ^
                  |
                  no offense. lol

                  It was so darn difficult to choose what hack/mod to vote on every different category in Round 1.
                  Anyways, I wish g'luck on everyone.
                  I'm gonna be busy starting tomorrow since classes will be starting here.
                  Aw well...

                  So, just updating you guys as I feel you deserve to know what's going on. Round 1 votes tallied, awards are being made. Nominations is now un-stuck, therefore paving the way for the results thread. It WILL be up today.

                  Do you have in mind when the 2nd round begins?

                  Well, it's pretty much all ready. Just going to let people chill off of the results for a bit. I think between three days and this time next week.

                  I see... thanks
                  I'm looking forward to the second round, I'm sure it'll be really interesting this year

                    I visited to throw in my opinions about Hack of the Year.
                    It's actually disappointing to me. Nearly every hack that's been nominated doesn't deserve to win this. I'm sorry, but if there are any hacks there that deserve this win, Azure Horizons does.
                    Sure, the other hacks have nice graphics, but it all seems repetitive. The scripting styles are all the same, the environments aren't really all that creative... it just doesn't feel like an actual Pokémon game to me. Frostbite's hack does.

                    Well, I figured since this will be my last post here at PC, I thought I would end on an honest note.

                    Good luck to all the contenders. I'm rooting for you, Frostbite!
