Okay, so, for the rules, heres what i got for rules so far, if anyone has anythign else to contribute, speak now, cuz im oging to make a thread in the next 2 days.

- Must be under 6 kb (6144 bytes)
- Must be submitted, along with a description (optional) to a judge before the duedate
- Must start from scratch. re-using pieces of code is OK, but you can’t just strip a game youve already made down to 6kb, and you cant pick up a half-completed game and work on it
- Everything must come directly from the fla, that means no referencing things on tthe internet (like Music Catch 2 with importing MP3s)
- Giving the source is required (to make sure your not cheating, like the example above says), but the source will not be revealed to the public unless the creator specifies that it can. sources that we have permission to display will not be displayed till the contest is over.

Still need:

- Judges. Must be a dev. volunteer in theis thread. i guess the first 5 people to volunteer will get to be judges. Should judges beallowed to submit an entry? (im thinking not)

- Due date, how much time should they have?

If anyone sees anything I left out, or would like to add something, tell me.

Can a judge submit? that would be kind of weir if they could as anyone would be tempted to up-vote theirs and down-vote the ones they think might win.

Or perhaps we need some kind of Olympics style judging in that the highest and lowest scores are omitted?

no, .as are OK. when the file is published into a swf, the .as files are included, so the game still comes from that one file. I should have said everything comes directly from the swf, sorry.
