How is it being tracked that the game comes from Stencyl? If someone has the Pro version then all licensing is removed?

Using "stencyl" and "stencyljam2012" as a tag would be enough I think. There are not many games tagged with "Stencyl" and it wouldn't take too much time to find all games for the competition.

I would imagine it has something to do with badge that is added and the fact it could only be added via stencyl?

I don't imagine it would be hard to add in plain AS3. It's just an image after-all which links through to the New Grounds page. Unless I'm missing something.

My point was more that someone could make a game outside of Stencyl, then claim it was made with Stencyl to enter the competition, you can tag it with "stencyl" and "stencyljam2012" regardless of whether it's actually made in Stencyl or not.

Ok thats true, but there will be some obvious things that can let you know that the games were made with stencyl like the transitions, the physics, the flixel console, no vector based animations etc. but this will not be 100% reliable for sure :)

It's usually pretty obvious when a game is made with Stencyl or not.

Satyre presents the most obvious clue - the Flixel console, unless it's disabled is perhaps the very easiest way to tell.

Besides, Stencyl is an extremely powerful tool that it is capable of designing a large variety of games. I would also think that there will be enough honest people that it wouldn't be an issue, not to mention that if a game won and was made without the use of Stencyl, it would have to be made by someone who has already made many successful games.

They should require the stencyl splash screen.

That would be very easy to fake in any development tool.

I bet it would be very easy to check by looking at the swf contents. I bet Jon could tell in a 'Flash'!

Just make showing the admins your game folder a requirement to collect any winnings.  Problem solved.

EDIT:  An even easier solution may be uploading the game on stencyl.com; would that be proof enough?
