July

Then-current SRB2 version: v1.04

Although not necessarily the first OLDC, this is the earliest known OLDC. Since all SRB2 Message Board records from before October 2003 were lost due to a crash, information about this contest could only be retrieved from archived pages on Internet Archive's Wayback Machine. The full list of entrants and all votes for this contest have been lost; only the winner of the contest and some other maps (and their authors) are known from re-releases on the SRB2 homepage's now-defunct addons page. There are no downloads for the contest itself, as the maps themselves have also been lost.

Following this contest, a "Level of the Month" section was introduced on the SRB2 homepage's now-defunct addons page, where the winning maps from the OLDC would appear; being the winner of this contest, a441's Transcendental Fort Zone was the first map to appear in this section.

  • Snow Hill Zone by Tets

  • Transcendental Fort Zone by a441

September

Then-current SRB2 version: v1.04

This contest is the earliest one for which full records still exist. The SRB2 Message Board crashed in October 2003, while voting for this contest was already in progress. No backups of the message board could be recovered, causing the records of all earlier contests to be lost. When the message board was relaunched in November, voting for this contest was restarted from scratch. At this point, the OLDC, which was hosted by Mystic, included only a Match division.

Match division

Loopy Tunnel Zone
  • MAP01 – Flame Valley Zone by a441 – 6.33
  • MAP02 – Loopy Tunnel Zone by a441 – 8.33
  • MAP03 – Jasons Base Zone by JTE – 6.75
  • MAP04 – Sky Walkways Zone by a441 – 7.00
  • MAP05 – Sacred Realm Zone by SSC – 4.00

December

Then-current SRB2 version: v1.04

After several contests for Match mode, Mystic introduced a new format: The gametype for the contest was to change each month, rotating between Single Player, Match and CTF. Thus, this was the first contest for Single Player maps. However, previous concerns that Single Player maps might be too complex to make in a month's time were justified when only three maps were submitted. As a result, the plan was called off and the OLDC reverted to only Match levels. A division for Single Player levels would later be re-introduced in 2005, while CTF maps would not start to appear in the OLDC until 2006. A revamped version of Poisoned Paradise Zone later appeared in Tets' level pack Blue Heaven under the name Metal Wasteland Zone Act 1.

Single Player division

Poisoned Paradise Zone
  • Mine Maze Zone by lostgamemaker – 3.25
  • Poisoned Paradise Zone by Tets – 7.43
  • Shrouded Terminal Zone by FuriousFox – 5.38
