Looking great! Only a tiny issue with the last set (Mayan): The right most building (on the first image) has a weird tangent and looks like it is hovering over the other small building.

Ceremony Date and Time Poll

Once the votes are counted, we want to award the games Oscars-style. Let's decide on a date and time for the ceremony!

We need a bit of time to update the awards client. So the ceremony will happen on the weekend 23-25 of March.

Please add your preferences for date and time to this doodle poll using your forum name (you can also choose "ifneedsbe" for a time)
https://doodle.com/poll/9rtubmsievcmvqbq
I hope the time zone is shown correctly for you.

And remember, we still need help with the client:

I loved that book as a kid! Unfortunately, I don't have it anymore.
I have to play your game adaptation of it!
Yes please, do play it! If you liked the books, you will enjoy the game.

I guess Miez could do a Dutch translation himself if needed, but thanks for the offer :)

Voting has started! Use the link in the forum banner and vote for your favourite games!

@xBRANEx Cassiebsg and CaptainD are right - only the 5 games with most nominations per category get nominated.

Advanced Technical Forum / Re: Copy/paste from clipboard
« on: 13 Feb 2018, 12:51 »
No, I mean while playing pasting text into a textbox, for example.

10
Is it somehow possible to paste text from the clipboard into the game? Is there a plugin that can do this?

(Edit: Clarified subject. -Snarky)

AGA updated the wiki page:

http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/wiki/AGS_Awards_2017

You can see all nominees there with a link to the database entry.

12
*When you see a game that you nominated, only got one nomination.* (roll)

... it means at least 4 other people nominated the same game in the same category, no? :cheesy:
Absolutely!

And thanks CaptainD for compiling the list by nomination count, I linked it in the first post. This is useful to see which games you have yet to play before voting.
Lots of different games got nominated. And while a few games got nominated for many categories, nomination count varied for each category. This means people did not blindly nominate one game in every category but really thought about which game to nominate. Thanks for that!

13
Voted! It was a very tough decision - so many great games!

14
Still a few there I haven’t played yet. When does the voting proper begin (and end)?
Second to Stupot's question, is it too early to ask when the awards ceremony is going to be held? Are we using that pick-a-time tool again? We could do that at the same time as voting.

Voting will run from 13/02 to 07/03.
There will be a voting about the ceremony date. I'll set up a poll soon (I need to check with Snarky first, when the client will be ready).

Nominations are over

A huge thank you to everyone who took the time to play and nominate the games.

The nominated games will be announced soon once the votes have been counted.



Isn't a minimum of "5 votes" for actual Nomination a bit unrealistic?
I think it would make far more sense to have a minimum of nominated options, tbh. Nominating is NOT voting for the game.
No, I don't think so. Many people participated in the nomination process and everyone could nominate up to 10 different games for each category.
The goal of the nominations is to create a shortlist of the best games in each category. If not even 5 people thought a game stood out in a certain category, then probably it didn't.


Furthermore, we weren't told it was going to be a voting contest to just have a game nominated.
Of course you were - it's in the first post:
The awards are a two-step process: First there is a nomination phase where all community members can nominate the eligible games in several categories (it will be the same categories as last year). The top five games of each category make it to the voting. Again, all members of the community can vote on their favourite games.
The final result is then announced in a live ceremony that can be joined either with a special client or any regular irc client (details to follow).


And Snarky is right: The rules can be discussed and changed - but only for next year's awards. For now, we stick to the rules of last year (and most years before that)

19
Hope you mean the 5 most nominated in each category (but with a minimum of 5 votes)... And not the order in which they are nominated...

Yes, of course. The order does not matter. Sorry if it was not clear.

20
Only a few hours left!

Only the top 5 games of each category will be nominated and they need to have at least five votes each. If the required number of votes is not met, there could be less than 5 nominees for a category.
