Is it better to post a game early for the SJ#14 and get feedback with the hope that you might improve it and post an update before the deadline? Or does that expose you to negative reviews?   I asked a similar question on the NG thread since it's not entirely clear how the scoring works, but I'm not sure I'll get a response. If I do, I'll post it here. Thanks.

Here, we always rate based on the final product as determined by the deadline. The prizes are from Newgrounds, however, so their rules apply.

If you'd like to receive feedback early, I'd post it here first and only post to Newgrounds when you're mostly done.

Maybe a stupid question, but in the case I would like to participate AND I am able to finish my game in the given time in a suitable quality, do I have to implement the Newsground API?

Sure, my games won't get better with all the new features of Stencyl.
But I do have more fun creating bad ones.

NG now shows ads for games on their site, so it's unlikely their API would be required.

You don't need to, but participants do add those features in to increase engagement (and possibly user ratings) on Newgrounds. The blocks are already in, so it's a matter of using them and setting up the achievements on their site.

I'll give entering a try.  Can't do any worse than my candy jam entry. xD

Thanks, Rob and Jon.
Looks like that the implementation shouldn't be that complicated.

I'm almost finnished my entry but I need Your help with one very important feature which is "Scene Zoom".   The problem is that it not working with tiles and API Tiles. After You use zoom out, You can see only a part of the scene's tiles.  Normal actors are Ok and can be visible on whole screen after zoom. Inteesting is that all works well on Mobile. Unfortunatelly in flash zoom out cuts only a part of the scene tiles before zoom and show them in the smaller ractangle (the rest is black). So, the game is allmost finnished but it is frozen for flash because of this zoom behavior problem.
I modyfied this behavior to work automatically with every mobile resolutions and it is very cool feature now but the problem is that it works only for mobile.

I cant play any of the submissions that I tried there so far. It wont show the games when I click to play them at the site. Why would that be?

Flash Player must be installed, for one possibility.

Thanks. I thought I did that though. I do have Norton 360 on. Also I tried a game here that worked, but I think it wasn't on that site and it ran.

Edit; I could run the 2 art game and one other so far.
