Case showcasing rules
Please read the following before posting your case's showcase
If you are making a case, you can create a showcase thread for it. Make sure that your showcase meets the following guidelines:-
  • You must give a link to all of the completed chapters of your case (if any) in the Trial Player.
  • You must create only one showcase thread for your case. Any identical threads will be merged by the moderation team.
    • You must give some information about the story of your case if you haven't completed any chapters yet.
  • You must not create your showcase until you've made at least a bit of progress in the writing of your case.
  • You should give information about the story of your case.
  • You should place these tags at the front of your thread's title to show the type of case that you're showcasing. These are explained below:
    1. Genre:
      • [T] must be used for a case that includes at least one trial phase similar to a real Ace Attorney games.
      • must be used for a case that only has investigation phases (i.e. no trial sections) or has gameplay similar to the real Ace Attorney Investigations games.
      • [C] must be used for a funny case that is more about humour than about defending a client.
      • [M] must be used for a case that is neither a trial, investigation or comedy.
    2. [CE] must be used if your case is a competition entry for one of the Case Competitions.
    3. Symbols:
      • ● should be used to count the number of cases where all of the chapters are completed.
      • ○ should be used to count the number of cases where some of the chapters aren't completed yet.
      • ☆ and ★ should be used to count the number of completed cases that are featured (see this thread for more information).

    For example, if you were making a trial series with four episodes, the tags might look like this: [T] Turnabout Example ●○○○

Once you've finished a chapter of your case and you're ready to to link to it in your showcase, make sure it meets the following guidelines:-
  • Your case must meet the case rules.
  • Your case should be stable. This means that your case should be complete and have no bugs. To check the case's stability, you need to playtest your case.
  • Your case should be completely spell checked. Most internet browsers have a built-in spell checker.
  • Your case should have a lot of effort put into it. It should be entertaining and well-written.
