Rules:
Remote entries
  • Remote entries are allowed for all competitions. Remote Entries can be uploaded using our party management system that will be available really soon(ish). We will announce the URL when its online. Remote entries are not eligible for any prizes in any form, you only get bragging rights.

Tiny Intro
  • We will use a PC with a quite recent CPU booted to the latest version of FreeDOS using Rufus - this setup will have no audio. As an alternative you can also have your entry run in DOSBox (current version 0.74-2) or then-latest DOSBox-X - You can supply a custom configuration if your entry needs it but do make sure that it also runs on the default configuration. You will be able to select your platform when submitting your entry.
  • Maximum file size: 256 bytes for the executable. All other files in the archive will be deleted before showing the entry in the competition.
  • Maximum showing time: 1 minute.
  • Pressing ESC has to end the intro instantly - entries up to 128 bytes are allowed to break this rule.
or any other party that has a 256b compo and generally accepts remote entries? of which there are plenty?
Maali, I just posted the first entry. More to come as I (or others) have time. This should become an ongoing list.
Outline has a 128 byte intro compo and accepts remote entries for all platforms.

Party: Synchrony 2020
URL: https://synchrony.nyc/
BBS: https://www.pouet.net/topic.php?which=11828
When: January 17-18, 2020
Where: Amtrak Train 69, going from New York City, U.S. to Montréal, Canada
Remote entry deadline: 11:59pm Eastern Time, Jan 17
Remote entry method: TBD
NANO compo rules:
  • This category is not unique to Synchrony, but has become closely associated with the party.
  • Maximum file size is 256 bytes.
  • Executables (binary files in formats such as EXE, COM, PRG) are fine. Entries are also allowed in standard interpreted languages that are standard with the OS, free software, or freeware (e.g., JavaScript, Perl, Processing, BASIC, QBasic). If the nano is for an interpreted language, the source file is limited to 256 bytes. You may not use your own custom-made esoteric language to play your 256b production in this Nano category. (You could do it in the Wild compo, though.) All other files in the archive will be deleted before showing the entry in the competition.
  • Maximum screening time: 7 minutes (including loading/precalc).
  • You may deliver larger versions of the 256b along with the compo version (which must be <=256 bytes) in the same archive. We will not show any larger version in the compo and voting should be on the <=256 byte version, but these will be spread.
  • For executables we will not install any additional runtimes, SDKs, codecs, drivers etc on the compo machine. For interpreted programs we will not install any libraries, and we will use the current stable version or a current stable version in the case of languages such as Python for which there are more than one stable version (2/3). This means that, among others, msvcr70.dll, msvcr71.dll and msvcr80.dll will not be available.
  • You may not use the contents of the Windows “Media” or “Music Samples” directories. These directories will be deleted on the compo machine.
  • Due to abuse of this rule last year by nom de nom, the compos organizer who is typing this right now, the use of similar media files in Ubuntu and on all other operating systems is also prohibited. I don’t even know what this means, but import by ordinal for DLLs with non-fixed ordinals is forbidden; so is directly jumping into DLLs with hardcoded offsets.
Looking at the Synchrony rules, regarding DLL files.. are Windows 256b intros even a thing?
(browses Pouet)
OK, there were a few but it looks like it hasn't been attempted since the XP era. Still, I would suggest adopting rules like rsync (FreeDOS/DOSBox) instead. And I guess Linux 256b is possible too (there are 6 of them on Pouet).

The smallest PE exe file under win10 is 268 bytes long.
I'm waiting for the party where the compo team is tough enough to stream freedos prods with pc-speaker voice...

Couldn't they just stream a provided video, after it has been checked for validity?

The Windows 256b entries were using a hack relying on the windows dos emulation. Thus they are no pure windows executables and won´t work on 64bit Windows...

Come or submit to the Nordlicht 512b compo!

Seriously, why making a realtime entry at all? Can´t we just switch everything to a plain NoobTube compo and stop messing with all that disfunctional technical crap?
