HERE WE GO AGAIN! The biggest simfile contest of the year is back for its 4th year running!

Contest starts June 10th!

What is the Z-I-v Summer Contest!?
The contest is a series of weekly simfile tournament with each week having a unique theme whose criteria must be met. Winners are decided at the end of each week, and the Contest winner is decided by the amount of weeks won. The goal behind this contest is to attract new simfile artists and for experienced simfile artists to test themselves creating simfiles in such a short amount of time.

What's new this year?
Honestly things will be the same as they were last year. Winner of the most weeks will win the contest!

Because they were the two finalist for ZIv Tournament of Immortals 3, TaroNuke and Silverhawke will mod and pick the themes for the coming weeks.

Week 1: TaroNuke
Week 2: Silverhawke
Week 3: Pandemonium X
REPEAT.

Contest Rules:
1. You are required to vote. Failure to vote will disqualify your entry or entries for the week.
2. You are not allowed to vote for your own song.
3. EDIT Only two file per week.
4. Entries must be uploaded by the deadline. No exceptions.
5. The entries must be named accordingly: [Name of the Week's Theme] - Song Name.
5a. In the event of duplicate entries from multiple contestants, use the above format, while adding your name in parentheses.
Example [DDR Edit] - Love is the Power (Pandemonium X) and [DDR Edit] - Love is the Power (Oni-91)

Simfile Rules:
1. Light, Standard, and Heavy are required.
2. Songs must be rated in DDR's old scale of 1-10 or ITG's scale of 1-13.
3. Songs are required to be less than two minutes and thirty seconds, unless otherwise stated.
4. No keyboard charts. DDR/ITG charts only.
5. Automatically generated steps are not allowed.
6. New simfiles only. Previous publically released simfiles are not allowed

Any violation of the rules will result in immediate disqualification from the contest and all entries will be deleted.

Voting Procedure:
Vote for 5 songs and the winner is decided on what simfile has the highest score.

1st: 5pts
2nd: 4pts
3rd: 3pts
4th: 2pts
5th: 1pts

WEEKLY DEADLINES:
Week Deadline will be Monday 5pm UTC is 1pm EST. No exceptions!

Frequently Asked Questions:

-Where do I sign up for the contest?
You can make a post in this thread stating that you want to participate in the category and you will be added. You can also send me a PM with the request.

-Where do I submit my entries?
You submit them to the simfile category made exclusively for this year's contest. Please provide simfile information when uploading. As a courtesy for others that will download your entry, please use the comment box to mention any extra information about the simfile.

-Can I upload a simfile that doesn't meet the week's theme requirement?
No you cannot. Any simfile that does not meet the week's theme will be disqualified and deleted from the category.

-Will I be disqualified from the tournament if I do not vote?
No. You will only be disqualified for the week you did not vote in. It does not affect previous or following weeks.

-Can another contestant or non-contestant submit my entry if I am unable to?
Yes as long as the entry is submitted before the deadline and in the appropriate category

-Can I create Beginner and Challenge charts for my simfiles as well?
Yes, but the Light, Standard, and Heavy charts are still required.

-I have a YouTube video of a simfile I made that I did not release. Can I still submit it for the contest?
If the simfile in the video has not or is not available for the public to download, then it is allowed.

-Are graphics required for the entries?
Graphics - such as the background, banner, CD jacket, etc - are entirely optional. They may, however, be the deciding factor when people submit their votes for the week.

-Are Doubles charts required?
Doubles charts are completely optional unless otherwise stated. Solo, Couple, and Pump It Up charts are optional as well.

-Are mines/shock arrows allowed when creating the charts?
Yes

-Can I use graphics provided by another contestant or noncontestant?
Yes

-Can I submit ideas for the weekly theme?
Of course! You can post them in the thread or send me a PM. However, it may or may not be used so don't keep your hopes up.

-Am I required to post a review?
No, but it would benefit the other users greatly. There will be times where there are too many files to give detailed reviews. If you are intent in giving reviews, you can make a post in the thread to let the contestants know that they can have their review via PM. However, please refrain from posting short reviews that may agitate the contestants. If you state the entry was terrible, then explain why it was terrible.

-I am not participating in this contest. Can I still review and vote?
Yes.

-Can I still sign up as a contestant after the contest has started?
Yes

-Is it required to add the hyphen when naming the simfile?
YES OR YOU WILL GET YELLED AT BY THE COMMUNITY

-How can I become a co-host of next year's tournament?
As of now, it's by winning the Z-I-v Tournament of Immortals, which is held before the summer contest. There may be other methods in the future, however, so stay tuned for further information.

-Hey I changed something on my simfile and now it's gone!? What happen!?
If the file is renamed in anyway, then all your files will be deleted due to the files being tied to the name you previously had. It might also be if certain punctuation marks are used such as question marks or exclamation points. If you make any changes to the title of the simfile upload, then make sure you re-upload everything as well.


If you can upload to the category, then you are in. If the contest starts and you signed up but can not upload simfiles, then let me know and I'll hook you up.

Big thanks to silenttype01 for the redone rules. Happy

Well the time has coming, ARE YOU READY!? *insert fans cheering*
