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 su...

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

@DaLar - yeah, you are absolutely correct! :)

@giro-X - Well, I'll figure it out and that will be the official mark... no big deal if you're not precise by the frame. :)

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.

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

The scores for this round have been finalized. Turns out only two completed this challenge... I suspect a lot more will complete the next one though...

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

Our second game is Joy Joy Kid, or Puzzled, whichever way you look at it. This is an interesting tetris variant where you have to get a balloon clear of all obstacles up to the top of the stage where you can move on to the next stage. This game was featured in the very first Week Challenge Champions...

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

@Chronos: Same thing that Rax and Agodzilla did will result in a 10,000 point reduction... I probably should have said that if the pawn gets x'd in the 3rd stage that counts as the end of the 2nd substage, but I can't change the rules now... :(

I reached stage 3 and the floor before of Arlon's room Damn if I understand what substages is it explain me plz #-o How many staircases did you climb?

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

Sorry if I seem a bit hard, gameboy. I only wanted to clarify my previous opinion. As giro-x said it can be quite difficult have suuccess with the trick and a waste of time higher than I expected. No use magic in stages 1 and 2? Wow... hard battle versus Bradford 8O I apologize if I disturb somebod...

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

... By the way, Gameboy9, when the Round 1 finishes? It ends Sunday at 235959 GMT... or a little under 36 hours from this post. Please note we're going to start round 2 right after the end of round 1. (or slightly before the end of round 1, depending on my real life schedule...) I added a time rema...

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

@el_fumador: Again, I can't say that I disagree with you with your "spirit of the game" opinion. But if there's any fault in all of this... it isn't me in posting the trick, it's me for not doing the appropriate research and, therefore, making a bad game choice. But, again, from further research, I ...

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

I disagree with this tricks. In my opinion, it shouldn't be allowed in this game. And for the remaining games, I think the same. These tricks will penalize skilled players in this game and the following games (if it's applied). In a Time Trial competition you must assume risks to get a good score. ...

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

Oh I'm stuck just trying to get by the second stage this round... usually I lose a life on Scorn, and if that doesn't happen, I lose a life during the horse section of 2-1. Yeah, doesn't matter, I stink at this game. :(

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

Thanks for the info. I've done one where I did complete the first stage, but didn't complete the 1st substage on stage 2, but thought that really sucked, so I hadn't submitted it. I'll get it in shortly, just in case..that'll at least let me get to round 2 :) I think I have the score calculated rig...

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

dont know what im doing wrong but it keeps saying that tt2-game1 isnt a mame short name? Place an asterisk before the name. So it's *tt2-game1. The asterisk is there so it won't be counted in the regulation leaderboards. Meanwhile... @Innuendo: I haven't seen the recording yet, but this is a correc...

Remember, google is your friend...that's all I'll say about that :mrgreen: As to the game, yeah, definitely not my genre either...I guess this isn't an elimination round, so I'll try and get something submitted before Sunday.
