The splash screen is the Eboot's Pic1.png, quite unconventional but a clever move for an eboot that has no graphical mode.
I'm going to "ignore" the comments about the "timing" issues between the release here and on coldbird's site, because it was a matter of minutes (the entry that has been rejected for not following this rule had been posted a day ago on other sites), there's no way for me to prove that it was posted here or there before, and, let's be honest, CFW Pro is a massive candidate for this compo, so I don't want to reject it just based on suspicions.
In other words, welcome to the competition, entry accepted
Very clever use for an eboot with no graphical mode, yes. : )
I am in agreement with Wololo on this one, there is no way to prove anything, and if you read coldbird's own post he points out it was someone ELSE posting after he was simply getting his own normal way of distributing his release updated, HE did not make the post in the CFW section, someone ELSE did, for all intents and purposes this IS where HE announced it first, and I believe that with all my heart. Why lie? He could easily just update even further and have a B-5 done before May 15th, I believe him.
Welcome to the competition!
And everyone remember there is a month and 5 days left to keep coding on all the secret projects we don't know about yet, so, don't count anything out or over yet. At the same time, very nice release Coldbird & Virtuous Flame! This set's the bar a lot higher, in my opinion. However, remember I am your humble compo host, I am not a judge. That honor falls to a group of 4 men who are going to have some tough / interesting decisions to make. ; )
