    So when precisely does this contest end? If there wasn't so much debate over what it's supposed to mean, I would assume that the countdown showing on the front page is counting down to the contest deadline, but I thought I'd ask just to be sure.

    The countdown will reach all zeros at midnight Pacific time on Tuesday night. I'm not sure why the contest would be keyed to Pacific time instead of GMT or something, but am I right in assuming that this is when everyone has ot have their entries in?

    Or is that when the winners will be announced meaning that entries have to be in sooner?

    And yes, I will be coming down to the wire for sure.

    Well that's funny, for me the countdown ends at midnight GMT. It looks like the counter's just counting to midnight in our individual timezones. I'd say assume entries are due by midnight GMT, unless moderators say otherwise (even if the deadline's a bit later you've lost nothing by submitting a few hours early)

    The coutdown is made in flash, and flash is a client-side application. Meaning it'll use your system's clock!

    Psyfira: I really like your entry. I really really do.

    The countdown timer is for the "surprise". [​IMG] Not the contest deadline specifically... BUT. Yes, coincidentally, they both begin and end at the same time, so the contest will close in approx. 24 hours and 50 minutes!

    Nice [​IMG] It's really interesting to see the process people go through to draw this stuff, thank you [​IMG]
    (oh and ignore lookout's comment, we're used to him coming out with some right rubbish sometimes [​IMG])

    [Edit] Oh and a general comment I forgot; I'm amazed at how quickly most of you guys came up with, made and uploaded your entries. Loads of you did some fantastic stuff within 24 hours! You guys are brilliant [​IMG]

    GODDAMMIT!!!

    My film was too big for utube, so I'm hosting it megaupload... WTF did my camera have to breaK THIS WEEK... please have made the deadline please...
    Anyway, its 500 megs, so if you know a vid site that gives you that much storage, pos it plz, otherwise dl it. (Very funny in my opinion.)

    Link will be up soon, megaupload is being slow.

    BTW, its a quicktime.mov file.

    Link scale? lol i must have daze off when i type that.

    just compress it. How long does it go for and what was the orignal frame size?
    Once you compress it you should be able to upload it as a youtube vid. Has to be under 100MB i think.

    I use VirtualDub to compress videos. Mpeg4 or divix is usually the best bet. Just lower the bitrate and such and you should have a nice small video file.

    I don't know about you but it would take me hours to download a 500MB video, we're not all on super speed internet...

    i want that 2:19 of my life back, no offensive but i found that neither humorous nor entertaining.
    I so glad you didnt make people DL'd that as a 500MB file, so one would have killed you for wasting that bandwidth.
    so kudos on your effort.

    Yes good luck to everyone, espeically tshu that mans love is beyond words...well besides the ones he used to describe his love. But yeah [​IMG]

    Big thanks to GBAtemp for organising this and the R4 team for the prizes, i await the judges decision.
