Limits?

Limits?

Any expressed limitations in size or tune length for compo submissions? I didn't see anything in the rules and just wanted to make sure there wasn't some implication that I missed.

So as long as the tracker file fits in 6 Megabytes when zipped, it doesn't matter how long the music piece it represents is, and are there any limits on the rendered mp3/ogg file?

Correct, no limit on the song length's or the rendered mp3/ogg file.

Nobody's ever submitted a song longer than about 10 minutes or so, although I'd be interested to hear one :)

Thanks... not gonna promise one for my first try (since I'm not 100% sure I can enter on time yet) but I'll try my best. ;)
