Regarding 2DPC Entries
It will be obvious to many, looking at these lists, that compared to previous years, there was a low turnout in the 2DPC section this year.
This greatly surprised the SHC Judges as we expected a healthy amount of mods that could have been submitted, as Mania modding is still going strong with many mods still in development, as well as progress being made in the RSDK decompilations which have been picking up in development.
A key thing to note is that many of the RSDK modders are moving onto the decompilations of Sonic 1 / 2 / CD over Mania, and many tools are still in development, which has meant some people have chose to wait for these to be ready, before working on something that would be worthy of submission to the SHC.
Whilst this may disappoint many who wanted to play Mania mods and mods from the decompilations, there are also plenty of Retro and 3D submissions to play instead. We have 41 Contest and 40 Expo submissions altogether.
Streaming Schedule
As always, we have a packed lineup of streamers who will be bringing you their own coverage of the SHC throughout the week.
There are streams for everyone to watch, and remember if you miss out on a stream live, these will generally be available to watch as VOD afterwards - check their YouTube and Twitch channels and catch up in your own time!
Please enjoy the lineup this year. We have made the streamers aware of the importance of reading the descriptions and following the setup instructions clearly, we will assist them to get things up and running if required, but if anyone doesn’t stream an entry properly, please let us know on our Discord.
On Sunday 10th October, we’re bringing you not just one, but three Pre Show streams, to reflect the split nature of the contest from 2021 onwards. We’ll be showing previous entries of the SHC courtesy of the SHC Vault and maybe if you’re lucky, we might show off a few new entries as a preview too.
These do not include the new Developer Streams as we have extended the deadline to having those booked - they will be on a separate schedule.
In addition to streams, we also have YouTube videos in the works from SEGADriven.com, Blue Vivacity, Velcomia and many more coming your way!
All streams will be available to watch through the website at https://shc.zone
Thanks of course to RummySM for designing the schedule images again!
Please note streams are subject to change at any time due to cancellations or other streaming issues coming up during the week, we advise you visit our Twitter for any updates in case of any stream changes or updates.
Regarding Contest Results and Evaluations
This year, there will be no live Results Show with the winning entries being streamed and discussed. We have decided to do a different approach this year to the results, instead we’ll be publishing them through other community websites at the end of the day (Sunday 17th October).
However, the Judges’ Evaluations will be available to access at the same time as the Results, so you will still get to find out opinions on these entries, to understand why they won entries and so on. There will be no delays on this.
We may do an End of Week Stream if time permits, but not for the results.
Developer Streams for SHC Entrants
We have extended the deadline of booking Developer Streams until the end of Friday 8th October, to allow enough time for interested SHC entrants to book an hour of stream time to show off their entry in their own way.
If you are an entrant and has not yet booked but wants to, please click this link to book a stream, we will let you know where we have slotted it in.
Get Involved - Join the Discord Server
Our Discord Server remains open throughout the year, to discuss the Contest and everything else too. It is open for everyone, all you need to do is visit https://shc.zone and go to the bottom for the latest Discord invite link!
We are always looking at other ways for people to get involved with the SHC platform as a whole, however the Contest Week comes first, so look out in the future for announcements on other things we have lined up to show off. Stick around for future announcements on these things.
We encourage all feedback regarding the SHC and Contest Week - if you have anything you want to discuss, please contact us through this form.
