If we turn in our entry early, can we turn in updates after? Or does it have to be the final product?

First copy i get is what i will be accepting easiest for me and Imo is fair to stop you from getting points based on an uncompleted work.

Also, can the requirements of comments be lifted in TI-Basic?
Due to dissatisfaction, I will be inactive on Omnimaga until further notice. (?? THP hasn't been much success and there's also the CE. I might possibly be here for a while.)
If you want to implore me to come back, or otherwise contact me, I can be found on GitHub (bluebear94), Twitter (@melranosF_), Reddit (/u/Fluffy8x), or e-mail (if you know my address). As a last resort, send me a PM on Cemetech (bluebear94) or join Touhou Prono (don't be fooled by the name). I've also enabled notifications for PMs on Omnimaga, but I don't advise using that since I might be banned.

yes and no. at the very least keep a list of what variables are what for us. if you can ofc we wont be to strict on it but it will hold minor weight. (like 3 points for basic or something)

Personally I would only force the usage of comments where it doesn't harm gameplay speed. Strings are slow in BASIC so using comments (which stores to Ans) can put considerable extra load in the program.

Also are there any contest restrictions based on respective country lottery/contest guidelines like some other contests (I know for example that all Nintendo contests excludes Quebec residents) or is this only when the contest is affiliated with an official company like TI?

Honestly all i want out of the comments is for us to be able to skim the code and know what is mostly going on with out having to debug it. so variable descriptions should be fine. and maybe just string lables if need be

Can we include the comments, etc. in a separate text file?

That would be a better idea actually. Then you can put as many comments as you can lol. Although the games are mainly judged for originality rather than coding, I don't think the staff will put a big note on an RPG that runs at 1 images per second only because comments are slowing it down this much. :P
