About rules, adding to what Gargaj said for the case of size-limited intros:

  • Intro itself must be one executable file
  • No data files from within the system may be used.
  • Only a specific, reasonable set of allowed libraries depending on platform can be used.
  • It is okay to decompress to disk on a temporary directory such as /tmp/ and execute from there.
  • It is okay to use system-default compressors such as cab or xz to do the former.

The set of allowed libraries would mean:

  • Windows: Latest DirectX, OpenGL libs, etc. I.e. clean Windows install with latest DirectX and GPU drivers.
  • FreeBSD/Linux/OSX: Latest GPU drivers, libGLU, libglut, libSDL. I.e. libraries that can reasonably be expected to be installed on a desktop distribution. Insofar as I know, no-one has tried to pull Texas yet, perhaps rules change if someone does.
