While some of the battles always have cover art as a format (Winter, Spring & Summer Majors), all others are kind of up to the host of the battle. If I have a definitive idea for a cover I just make it. If I don't have time or an idea or want to see what n00bs will do then I add it as a format.
edit: yes, pre website for sure.
also the fairlight cmi battle was kinda hosted by moot since he had the idea. but if you just look at the "hosted by" on the site, this is the first battle not hosted by puke7.
I've reviewed my setup for creating Channel F music, namely SleizsaTrio. The problem is it seems to still compile fine, but when I start mess to run it (even the sample file "mame channelf -rompath roms -cart sleizsa_trio_demo.bin"), I only get a long beeeeeep without music. What happened? I've tried a few channel F games, they seems to work (including sounds). Did they change something in mame? (i'm using mame 0.195)
[EDIT] if you have the 0.195 version, you should update to the latest 0.215 which is working fine. Probably they corrected a bug.
i noticed some people here said they'll try to make an entry but didnt submit one so far. thats not a problem per se, but if anyone is working on something and needs more time to finish their entry, now would be the best time to tell me

afaik argarak is still working on his entry, idk about some other people though.
if its really close for someone, i could extend for an hour or two. not going to add a full week. pls tell me via comment here or irc, otherwise thanks for participating everyone. i'll tell you soon about the synclisten stream! :D/
edit: added 30 mins so that the last 2-3 people can double check their entries before they submit them.
Alright everyone, we're done!
The F MAJOR has now officially ended. Congratz to Warlord for winning the GOLDEN !
Also thanks to everyone for voting me on the 2nd and 3rd place, i didnt expect this. But i'm happy!
This was a super fun experience and i hope, all of you had at least as much fun as me while you were composing, voting (and probably coding. lol argarak)
Thanks again to puke7 for giving me the opportunity to host my own major battle!
