About JABC

Just Another Beatmap Contest is an unofficial mapping contest that has run three full successful cycles with the key focus of showcasing innovation and creativity. We hope to provide an even better experience from last time with better stakes, even better song choice, and very little to zero issues. Even if you have seen this page before, there are some changes made to how certain things work. Please read through this again to check what's been changed.

Format

  1. Register with the link below. Join the discord and read
#information.The contest .osz will be released on a certain date. Contestants have 336 hours (14 days) to create and finish a difficulty.Once you are done with your entry, Discord or forum PM me with your .zip including hitsounds and .osu and I will implement it into a set with all entries.If you did not finish by the end, please do NOT submit your entry unless you specify how unfinished the entry is. This is meant to make sure the judges' time is not wasted. If you are finished by the end, you NEED to submit your entry before the 10 minute grace period ends.Judges will be given anonymous sets with everyone's entries and they will judge them. There have been changes to judging that is going to be tested to help promote the main concept of this contest, so please take note of that if you would like to be a judge!Once the judging period is over, winners will be announced and I will give prizes.

Important Information


Judging Criteria v2

Rules are exactly that: rules. They must not EVER be broken or else you risk being disqualified from the contest!
  1. All entries must follow the ranking criteria. The ultimate, final push is for rank so following the ranking criteria is optimal to get there as fast as possible.
  2. You may only create one difficulty. The difficulty you submit to us is your final product, and you may not submit updates!
  3. You may only make a diifficulty for osu!standard. Other modes will not be permitted.
  4. You may not collaborate with a partner and all diffs must be made solely by the person that is listed in the difficulty name.
  5. Copying other people's content is not allowed, and do note that even copying concepts from other uploaded maps could worsen your score.
  6. While the contest is happening, no one is allowed to share any part of their beatmap to anyone.
  7. Submisssions will not be accepted after the 10 minute grace period at the end has passed.


Regarding hitsounds

Yes! you may include your own hitsounds in a map now, but there a few restrictions to keep things from going crazy in terms of file size.

1. You may not use more than 5 samplesets. I'm trying to be lenient, but generally you shouldn't even need that amount of hitsounds.
2. If you are keysounding- for the sake of the contest, please just storyboard hitsounds those for the time being.
3. Remember that your hitsounds should be appropriate to the map and the song, and overdoing it will also lose you points.


Registration
