Hi All,

Does anyone know if PAX10 will be taking submissions in .ccgame format, the likes of which used for Xbox LIVE Community Games? The rules mention that any specific hardware should be sent in, but as long as the panel have a PC, a 360 and a creator's club membership, there should be any need for hardware. They will however need to set up some software on those systems.

Any ideas, peeps?

    No mods or levels are allowed. What does this mean? It means you can't require the installation of other software to run your game. The only exception to this is if you submit a game that uses a 3rd party game engine (like Torque for instance) and you have all the rights to use the engine. In that same vein, middleware can be used for development, but the external software used has to be disclosed with the appropriate copyright and credits assigned

    Here are the rules:

    and most importantly, you should direct your questions to [email protected]

    But, to answer the question, no, I think they are PC games only.

    It shouldn't be any different, just build it out as a PC project and use a 360 controller. The code change requirements between the two are usually trivial.
