Wait until next year. Someone (most likely Kiddo) will make an announcement when the dates for next year is determined.

I'll probably have three booths this year. One would just be ReTux again (I re-released it for free this year), but the other two would be brand new games. One is ready (Tangomon), one isn't quite yet...

NCFC is not very much publicity at all. You get a lot more from being on MFGG.

If that's how you feel, don't make fangames. Nintendo's attacks are not on NCFC, they're on fangames. There is no reason to believe you will be more likely to be targeted by being on NCFC.

Yep, that did the trick. If I had to guess what caused that, my guess would be that there were some bad files left over from when I created the booths. Anyway, not a problem anymore.
