You must deliver proof that your entry works on real hardware (i.e.

No prizes, it's just a plain just4fun compo
Amiga musicians: Please submit your entries via Network or on PC formatted disks, multiple ones if necessary. This compo is prepared completely on PCs, so having to convert Amiga disks means a lot of effort we'd rather spend on the compo itself. You have to make sure sure that BeRoTracker can read and play your entry, otherwise your entry will be disqualified.
If necessary, we will have a preselection. Entries that didn't make it through the preselection can't be voted for and won't be spread.
Maximum playing time is 4 minutes. Tunes exceeding this limit will be disqualified without further notice!
