Compo compo

category: general [glöplog]
I remember one demoparty (forgot which one) where there was a "competition" compo where you could suggest some rules for some compo that you want to see at the party.
So, here you can start writing your suggestions for your compo.
Please, don't suggest anything typical like 32b oldschool or textmode demos... 5k intros, mobile portrait demos, Arduino demos, 1k web intros, UEFI intros (is that even possible?) are for us. Be crazy, be wild!
Probably some of these ideas will be picked up by party orgas... but probably not. Anyway, it should be funny, so go ahead and suggest your own crazy compo!

Pen-and-paper shader showdown. You get pen, paper and 25 minutes to write down your shader. Then orgas have to type your script into bonzomatic.
Bonus points for:
- your script is intelligible
- it actually compiles
(variations may include being able to pass sheets of paper every 5-10 minutes so you have chance to iterate)

Live coding with only one chance to run/test during the whole compo or - as less difficult level - every n minutes.
A coat of arms compo. Entries are submitted in the form of written blazons. The blazon should be concise, unambiguous, and follow the rules and conventions of heraldry. The compo organizers will be responsible for reconstructing the image of each entry from the blazon. During the compo, both the image of the coat of arms and the wording of the blazon will be shown on screen.

UEFI intros (is that even possible?)

there is a port of doom to UEFI so... maybe?

Metavoting: predicting the outcome of the compos down to per-prod vote counts.

Graphics Executable: you enter a png file (hard mode: jpeg; impossible mode: jpeg with quality settings you have no control over) and it gets voted on how pretty it is as an image. Then its pixels are reinterpreted as binary, written as an exe file and executed. And it gets voted as a demo. Then votes are combined.

It was Hogmanay last year that had the compo compo, which the "best organizer" compo won.

RE graphics executable, pico8 carts can be saved as a png and then execute the cart when reloaded in pico8. Try loading the screenshot of https://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=85923 , or any other screenshot that has the same border, in pico8 :)
Also: Psytrance Demo Compo.

Mystery platform compo: Write a demo for a platform (probably one that already has demos for it) but try to disguise the platform. The audience has to guess which platform it is. The demo with the least amount of correct guesses (or lowest correct to incorrect ratio) wins.

Font compo.

Make a 16x16 font, max 16 colours

Entries would be viewed as the static image and compiled into a scroller demo, scroller would have bounce, SIN, dist etc.

Mystery platform compo, but as a live compo: Candidates are put in front of a machine they have never used before and have to write an effect on it in 30min.
