Re: 2011 Time Trials - Round 2 - Puzzled / Joy Joy Kid

Hmmm... while 60 fps does make the calculations simpler... maybe we should use the 59.185606 fps benchmark instead so those that use the chronometer will be more accurate with those using frames used to measure. I guess I have a lot of work to do this time. :? I would just make my best guess when s...

Re: 2011 Time Trials - Round 2 - Puzzled / Joy Joy Kid

Well, I've made my 1st INP. I counted something like 42000 frames, but my precision is not even considerable. I'll wait for seeing how much I've been wrong in calculating the score ^^;

Re: 2011 Time Trials - Round 2 - Puzzled / Joy Joy Kid

There's a frame counter by pressing F11... take the frames used and divide by 60. Or just take a chronometer and time it that way. Or take a guess and make me figure it out. :) EDIT: While this game is officially 59.2 fps, just divide the frames used by 60 for simplicity's sake. Oh, that way... I'l...

Re: 2011 Time Trials - Round 2 - Puzzled / Joy Joy Kid

Just a word for the surprise...

YAHOO!

:twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

Okay, satisfaction ahead, how can we calculate exactly the time used for the game, considering that there's no timer in the game?

Re: 2011 Time Trials - Round 1 - Knights Of The Round

"Arlon pisses me off" is becoming my motto, by this pace... :x Damn it, now that I found a "small" way to defeat him, I still lose all 2 lifes to him, and one day... ehm, 20 hours are remaining. Not counting routine of everyday hours that go away, i have more or less 6 hours to at least reach stage ...

Re: 2011 Time Trials - Round 1 - Knights Of The Round

Didn't want to wait another moment, as I got it, I've submitted new score... yeah, I've risen up a little bit! :D

Re: 2011 Time Trials - Round 1 - Knights Of The Round

Ho hum, taste of challenge. If only I could get to the 4th level with the starting 2 lives, without tricks... i wouldn't care anymore of who tries the tricks. That trick, if I didn't misunderstand, forces the player to NOT use the A+B move for the entire stages 1 and 2, this means time to beat enemi...

Re: 2011 Time Trials - Round 1 - Knights Of The Round

Damn it, I've tried for 2 hours to apply the trick for extra lives at stage 3, no way I could get them! Also, i decided to abandon this road, makes me waste a lot of time in the game solution... Stage 3 is becoming my real enemy to this game, since stage 4 is quite... "easier". And in the meanwhile,...

Re: 2011 Time Trials - Round 1 - Knights Of The Round

Well I haven't seen the recording yet, but score and version-wise, you're good to go. :) As for the play... I don't know, I think I picked a tougher game than I realized... nobody's beaten the third boss yet. But I was wondering if somebody was going to get a sub-one minute first stage... well... y...

Submitted my first "not-so-much-fine-but-we're-starting" INP, I hope it could be in rule with all.
I've done a shitty play, I must improve my skills on stages 2 and 3... and maybe 4...

Re: 2011 Time Trials - Round 1 - Knights Of The Round

Oh hoo hoo, I like this game a little bit, I never tried neither heard it before (i've loss of knowledge about Capcom games...) and it has caught well my attention. But I must confess that I'm not so skilled in this genre :( and still 2nd boss is quite hard for my standards. Well, I guess and hope t...
