There is no prize

: This is an incredibly intricate Challenge. I've been tinkering around with it
: so far, and only have a few questions.

: - How does one "get flames" once this challenge is complete? Do we
: film ourselves doing it then piece it together and send it in? I'd like a
: pretty exact answer; i'm not the best with theatre/forge.

There were a couple things that I wanted to accomplish with this Flaming Ninja Challenge. One was to make an obstacle course that could appeal to Halo players of varying skill level.. that's why the checkpoints are unlocked and there is a jetpack loadout.

Another thing I wanted to do was issue a challenge to the Halo players that thought spending $150 made them cool. I wanted to say to them, "you think those flames you bought make you cool? How about you prove it--beat this challenge!" ..and that's why I worded my promotional bit the way I did.

If I WAS running a contest where you got a prize, I would have done a couple things differently:
-I would say "this is a contest"
-I would say "this is the prize for the contest: "
-I would say "this is how you submit your entry for this contest: "
-I would make the map variant and gametype cheat-proof. As it is, I give you 3 ways to cheat (checkpoints/jetpacks/falcons). That wouldn't cut it for a contest.

So, I hope I didn't get people's hopes up. I actually don't even have flames myself.. :) I hope you enjoyed the map, though!

: - Why haven't you made a Saw movie yet? ;)

I'm not sure what you mean.. like a machinima movie? Or a obstacle/puzzle map?
