First topic I've seen so far...

Quote from: iv.bat ~ README.txtiv.bat is made to be precisely 140 B and will, when run, check if it's 140 B.
If it is, it will write 'qq' at the end of the file, therefore becoming more that 140 B, break the filesize limit and invalidate itself.
When run again with the invalid version, it will tell you it's no longer a valid entry.

Nice idea :)
Are you actually allowed to release the program before it gets judged?
Legends say if you spam more than DJ Omnimaga, you will become a walrus...

So what is 140? The readme or the program? :P
The program is, but only if it hasn't had a single run yet :P.

With 4x3, you weren't allowed to release source or binaries until after the contest was over. It would make sense to continue this rule.

Juju, you should maybe put the rules in the thread so people how to submit their stuff and what to and what not to do.

How am I supposed to run this by the way? It tells me the file is invalid for the contest when I double-click it.

That means you've run it at least once and it's now 142B in stead of 140B

Can't you deinvalidate it opening it in a text editor or something? :o

Juju

Of course, you have to remove the last 2 bytes manually and you're good to go. The point here is that this script is self-modifying, so it's not the same output when you run it twice.

I thought that, that's why I wondered why DJ Omnimaga redownloaded it.
