Re: 2011 Time Trials - Round 4 - Vs. Slalom

Well, I can see where you're coming from... but, under your definition, that would pretty much rule nearly all racing games out for the most part... thing is... I would think that racing games SHOULD be in a time trial. Maybe I should have picked a better racing game... but I'll leave that to the po...

Re: 2011 Time Trials - Round 3 - Joust

Marco,
You definitely defeated 15 stages in a time of 7:50.38, which makes your score as written on the leaderboard correct and the positions are also correct. So good news for you, in that regard. :)

Re: 2011 Time Trials - Round 4 - Vs. Slalom

Too many stages and too much difficult for a TIME trial, AGAIN. :| This tournament is made of pain. lol This may be something I(or, again, the next coordinator should I lose elections :) ) need to work on next year... shorter time trials. I'll be doing a full post-tournament evaluation when the tou...

Re: 2011 Time Trials - Round 4 - Vs. Slalom

(from recording)... Can't find the uKnowWhat that works with wolf138... Try searching for rp2c04-0002.pal and hopefully you'll find it. I agree... it's VERY annoying to play without the clock! :( @All: OK, I stand corrected... I had thought that you lose speed by free-styling after jumping a mogul,...

Re: 2011 Time Trials - Round 4 - Vs. Slalom

@Phil: Well, you do raise a good point, but it seems to me that Rare gives equal emphasis to freestyle points as well as time in the stage end screen. But, to your defense... the quality of play, at least time-wise, would be better if we did remove the freestyle... not sure which is the better path ...

Give a look, may be it changes a position

Re: 2011 Time Trials - Round 4 - Vs. Slalom

I'll use my sample recording as an example: I finished all eight stages in times remaining of 23.20, 15.06, 10.90, 4.56, 3.00, 56.08, 7.52, and 18.16. When summed, that gives 138.48 seconds. Combine the stages completed with the time remaining * 100 into your score, so 8 & 13,848 -> 813,848. Maximum...

Re: 2011 Time Trials - Round 3 - Joust

Scores for this round are finalized. Additionally, I have standings after 3 rounds posted below the leaderboard for this round. A thrilling competition in the Joust... I was worried about the controls, but it turned out that one more player completed the game than those who completed Knights Of The ...

2011 Time Trials - Round 4 - Vs. Slalom

Here's my "try this!" game... where I place one (or all three?) of my very few high scores I have remaining on MARP on the line. Our final game before the deciding game is going to be Vs. Slalom. Rare started creating video games mainly for the ZX Spectrum back in the day... this was Rare's first co...

Re: 2011 Time Trials - Round 3 - Joust

@Sawys: Well, you do raise a good point. Something for me(or the next coordinator, should I be defeated in the elections :) ) to keep in mind for next year... as in just do XXFFFFF where X is stages completed, and F = 100000 - frames used. Then you don't have to go through the further conversion, un...

Re: 2011 Time Trials - Round 3 - Joust

2nd submission, cleared wave 16, start 1159, end 31921, total frames= 30762=511.88 sec, 8 min 32 sec, score=165127. If I could quit doing stupid mistakes, I'm sure I can get thru all 20...hard though on a laptop keyboard :mrgreen: Looks like you cleared wave 17 to me... I live to play another day.....

Re: 2011 Time Trials - Round 3 - Joust

@TheBSM: Take away about 120 frames... it's easier to confirm when I can see "no survival points awarded" instead of waiting two seconds to figure out which frame "wave 13" shows up. @All: I tell you what... I sometimes think that I have the AI all figured out all to find that it's not figured out. :(

Re: 2011 Time Trials - Round 3 - Joust

Yeah sometimes I have a decent game and reach level 10... and sometimes I just fall flat and die at level 7. Or I just end the game after losing three lives in a level for no reason. I might have made it too difficult by saying game over after wave 20...

Re: 2011 Time Trials - Round 3 - Joust

Corrected the ending point to say that "wave ##" OR "survival points awarded" will be the first frame a "wave ends". That basically makes it easier for me to confirm the recording.
