Remember to either attach your files or post a downloadable link to your files, kids, it's the only way I'll get 'em.

Here's some tips with the upcoming deadline :

1) When posting your campaign's link, ensure that your link works ... unlike Lavarinth's link to a MP3 in his earlier unmodified post : http://starfox-online.net/sfo_media/sta ... odLuck.mp3

If you have no clue how to upload a file (especially if your campaign is higher than 10 megabytes preventing you to attach it on a forum post), you can use some sites such as yousendit to upload it and then paste the given link as your download link.

2) Try as much as possible to have the less errors and typos in your dialogs and text messages. You might have the best story but it can easily go down the drain with too many typos in every of your text lines. There are various online correctors or offline programs to help you find at least various erroneous words.

3) If your campaign requires a specific version of BW due to modding reasons, please tell it in your thread along with your download link. Also say any special remarks or instructions.

4) If you are unable to finish your campaign in time, at least make a trigger with a text message saying that it is incomplete at the last key event in your campaign so that we don't lose time playing to find the next map condition to move on the story when there is none.

5) Preferably check if all triggers works in terms of story advancement. It's never good to be stuck due a map's bug. :p

I might add more tips later, I also intend to try the campaigns myself and openly tell my opinion. However, it's ultimately Lavarinth's call for the winners.

Is there an actual time on the deadline (such as you have to have it posted here by 5:00 EST p.m)? Or is it just you have to post them on monday (tomorrow) thats it?

Contestants, when you will put the download link(s) of your campaign files, please make a new post with the link(s)/attachment(s) instead having to search your whole thread for it.

I cannot find any site that can host my file, they're taking way to long.

Could be related to your upload speed. Use YouSendIt.com, it's the most common used, as the e-mail address to send it to, simply pick your own or mine: lavarinth@campaigncreations.org

Well thanks, but I finally got it hosted, it took a long time (even though it only said 21 minutes) but I used filefront. Thanks again Lav.
