I did something that I’m not sure is within the rules or not, but I want to be honest about it..
One of the entries I’ve rated was in a almost unrateable state. It did not provide any binaries, and it had 3 gamebreaking crashbugs.
I fixed the bugs, created a windows makefile, built a windows version of the game, put it on dropbox and commented what I’ve done and where to find the Windows build.
The rules of the Ludum Dare compo clearly states that it’s a solo competition, but what I’ve done are also a part of the exceptions -> You can port to other platforms, and you can fix severe bugs outside of the 48 hour limit. Is it OK if this is done by a different person — just to make sure that the user at least get SOME feedback on his entry, for educational purposes at least?
I’m not trying to cheat for anyone, I have no relation with the person who created the entry — I’m just trying to be a helpful member of the community.
The entry in question is to be found here: http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-23/?action=preview&uid=11162
