 Demo Competition Rules 

  • The entries have to be delivered as an archive or as a single executable
  • To avoid issues with the projector the maximum resolution is 1920x1080
  • Installation routines are forbidden. Unpacking your contribution into a directory and starting the executable have to be the only things necessary to get your production to work
  • All custom libraries have to be provided with your production and they have to reside in the same directory
  • Any custom libraries count into the filesize limit!
  • Pressing either the right mouse button or ESC has to end the demo instantly
  • Windows PC entries must run under Windows 10 64bit and the lastest DirectX version available
  • If you are displaying a selector at startup please make sure that it is set to sensible defaults. There should be no interaction required other than pressing the start-button
  • IMPORTANT: D3DX won't be available. Add ALL DLLs to your archive, especially d3dx9_43.dll, d3dCompile_43.dll, msvcr*.dll, msvcp*.dll, so your demo can be watched on a freshly installed Windows 10 machine. For Windows Intros, these files will not be count into the filesize. At least not this year :-)
