It depends on the nature of the port. Some ports are allowed, such as my port of the 240p test suite (by permission through the GNU GPL; ruling by NESHomebrew). But don't try to submit anything that infringes copyright, like a port of Tetris.

If we keep the "originality" category a port seems likely to bomb there.

Basically it is to discourage 10 pong clones. Especially since nerdy nights pretty much completes a pong game. But honestly, feel free to submit a pong clone. There will just be no advantage, if we keep that category.

and will there be 1 compo, 1 cart, or 2 compos, 1 cart? I think that's the most radical question. The other ones are details imo.

One competition consisting of two categories. Basically the same as 2014 guys.

I will try to make an official thread shortly, I've been working 12hr night shifts the last 3 days and really haven't had time to put anything together. I'm also limited by the proxy at my work (they block NA as a "gaming" site) so I don't have access to update the website. That being said, as long as things don't get too busy at work, I should be able to get an official thread started within the next 4 hours.

Still nodeadlineposted? Iwasexpecting Jan 31, if just so that the end of the period isn't occupied by holidays.
