Yes.. go play, start up tournaments.. i must win!

*Won 5 quid in a tekken 4 tournament last nite*

Im hyped for tournies now.. 5 quid split across two people.. whats more. The rules were nuts.

Player 1 was took 50% health in his bar.. starting with that.. and Player 2 had 1%.. 5 rounds, had to beat him at least once, if they hit you once, you were out.

So.. intense.

I just spent between two and three hours on PSST!. In a single playthrough.

Does the game ever get any harder beyond level 3? I reached level 54, half sleeping and about to die from boredom, changing records in the CD player every now and then, pondering where I should decide that my score is high enough before quitting. I should've stayed at 30'000, it would've looked neater.

Also, the dolphin game needs an epilepsy warning.

Post by: Spiff on October 08, 2005, 04:36:54 am
Onyone seen a certain Asteroids highscore? >_>

I went for a clean 2000000, but eventhough I had counted the point values for all asteroids, I forgot about the small UFO. I shot it with my score at 1999500, expecting it to give me 500 points, but instead it gave me 1000. I was like, "...damn". So I entered the year 2005 into the score instead.

Yes, it took me five hours straight. What? I was serious when I said I was bored enough to get 30000 points in Psst. Just like Psst, Asteroids never gets harder from about the fifth level, and I had such a ridiculous number of extralives, I could get a sandwich, and when I came back my extralives still stretched beyond the right border of the screen. The designers should've made the difficulty increase constantly, or cap the number of extralives (I earned a total of 200).

Post by: Spiff on October 09, 2005, 02:48:03 am
Some thoughts on random games...

Aussie Xmas is sleek and fun.

Breakit has more bugs than a rotting corpse.

Breakout V2 looks like a bad Flash tutorial example and plays worse. Where did you find this stuff? Following the Geocities link at the bottom reveals that it's even the worst of this guy's games, you should've taken the superior Burger Time instead.

Bricks in the wall has the excellent collision detection of Breakout V2, the flawless programming of Breakit and the highest quality sound effects straight from the shareware version of Klik'n'Play. It's a miracle it even boots up doesn't attract more players.

Ah, Donkey Kong. Levels 2-4 are missing, the sound effects and intro/ending are wrong, the jumping and hit detection are nothing like the original, the barrels have the wrong AI and there are no hammers. The best part is the instant-death barrel glitch. If you put one million monkeys by computers, one of them will eventually program a game. This is that game.

Mars Rover has enemies that spawn next to your vehicle and odd hit detection. Guaranteed fun!

Asteroids, finally a good game! This is in fact a too good port - you can still earn so many extralives that you can take a break when you get bored, and still have 30 lives when you get back.

How about actually making each level harder in Duck hunt? I didn't see much of a difference between level 1 and 120. Also, the ducks fly nothing like they do in the original, and the animation for the dog holding up two ducks is wrong.

Psst doesn't get harder past level 3. In other words, like Asteroids, Donkey Kong and Duck Hunt, your highscore is determined only by how long you're willing to spend doing absolutely nothing. I'm pretty sure the original was superior (it must've been, it was made by Ultimate/Rare).

Collapse is good, but I've seen better implementations (where each round requires a minimum score to pass).

Flatout depends on how fast your machine can display Flash files, so in my case, it's quite impossible pressing Space at the right time. Only tried it once.

Panicroom plays like a random highscore generator and sounds like a cartoonist asylum. *Pictures people bouncing against cushioned walls yelling "Boink! Boink! Boink!"*

When epileptic people go to hell, they're stuck in a room where every available surface is covered with screens displaying Dolphin Dash. Once you've learnt to get all the coins, the highscore is still completely random, another example of bad game design.

Militarywar - so much graphics wasted on so little gameplay. Didn't see much of a point.

If you can program a VCR, you have more game design skills than the guy who made Skiprock. You don't even have to try to get the maximum score.

Pacman and Plumber look nice, but I haven't tried them yet. Haven't trid the rest of the games, either.
Title: Re: Forum games!
Post by: Laser.T on October 09, 2005, 03:19:17 am
Great post, lol. But c'mon, a bit harsh. Flatout and Dolphin Dash are just zany mini games. There's little about skill and prowess, its just a stupid distraction. And the rest are only flashes so we can't expect too much - ther'es only a few people that really know how to make good stuff out of the program. But as for the games by GEL (i think it is - they're responsible for bricksinthewall, sk8_prison and skating gamez) thery are simply dire.

Hey just had a thought. Let's put a great game in the form of your puzzle game that you made. Had to implement a scoring system based on time I suppose.
Title: Re: Forum games!
Post by: Spiff on October 09, 2005, 03:47:08 am
Yeah, I know it was harsh... I guess I just expected something like Peasant's Quest or such. :P I went to a forum long ago that had alot of good Flash games, but it doesn't exist anymore. Had a very good Breakout game with proper collision detection, too. Still, did the creator of this Donkey Kong version play more than one level, since he didn't discover the instant death glitch? Anyway, go to that Geocities link found in Breakout V2, and play Burger Time, that's a fun game. :) We should have that one here.

As for making my puzzle game in Flash, that's way out of my league, or anyone I know.  :p
Title: Re: Forum games!
Post by: Smeagol on October 09, 2005, 03:59:06 am
Dolphin Dash and Panic Room criticism seems overly harsh. Dolphin Dash is just something to do while killing time. It's stupidly fun and addicting. Panic Room is probably one of the hardest games to get a good score for. Then we come to Flatout, which MDX broke on the first day or so, with 496, pretty much the highest possible score.

Znax is easily the coolest game yet, though it makes my brain hurt when it's 2 in the night... also it makes me think of chips (snacks).

I have no idea how you guys get such good Collapse scores... I'm just not good enough at puzzle games. Same for Tetris, my brother always beat my scores by a multiple of 10 back on the Gameboy. :P

Sk8 prison... wow... I wonder if they even playtested this. Had to understand all the flaws and bugs in the controls to be able to play it (pressing a direction after jumping straight up resets your character to ground position in mid-jump... yes, of course). I didn't beat the second level, it was just too much.

Just went into "the zone" while playing Aussie Xmas, went for a slow, methodical approach and clicked santa just before he hit the ground, instead of trying to keep him high. The game stopped becoming more difficult around 100-150 clicks (I see a pattern here), so the score could go on way longer if I was skilled enough. I surprised the heck out of myself for every 100 clicks. :P I was really, really close around 200, and actually felt my heart pounding at 250 and up.

Eh, that game is overrated. I solved it in a few minutes because they kept stressing how important the name was. :P They make it out to be some sort of ultimate brainbuster, where people who used to solve it went through a little ceremony, when it's just a simple game with misleading elements. The full rules are not even written on the main page - such as the fact that a human thrower of the dice can come up with the answer within a second, that it's not important that the dice are ordered in a row (probably what causes the most confusion), and that the colors of the dice are just a distraction. I don't see what the big deal is.

Nethack. You usually have a dog. Or was it a cat?

Dog. A big white d.

Edit: Captial D was dragon. Major error :p

Is it just me or do Cacodemons from Doom 3 bear more than a passing resemblance to Pac Man?

I say we sue ID for creating a character like pacman!

Wait...what was this thread about again?

Yeah. Pac Man with a skin condition and a bad dentist.

Well, have a look at this. (http://www.mcotie.com/newimages/tdome5.jpg)

I've never been able to game the same way since.

Haha maybe they could turn it into a move

Findill that reference to nethack is gold. I was a bit confused at first but then I put on my nethack glases and I could see.  Goes up to the wall and kicks it three times then dies from kicking the wall. ~pray

The problem seems to be that the current version of the arcade mod does not fully support the current version of the forum. I'm still trying to fix it but unless I can't get it to work, we must wait for a new version of the arcade mod..
Title: Re: Forum games!
Post by: Smeagol on October 27, 2005, 10:20:27 pm
We can handle *twitch* waiting.
Title: Re: Forum games!
Post by: refic on October 27, 2005, 10:32:06 pm
One way could be a full reinstall of the mod, but this would mean deleting the database (highscores etc).. I really don't want to do that.
Title: Re: Forum games!
Post by: Smeagol on October 27, 2005, 10:40:01 pm
I think a forum-wide consensus would be to just wait for the new version of the Arcade to come out. Then again, with Spiff and his copious amounts of free time around...

Yes, we should consider whether Spiff has enough spare time to get a highscore in everything AGAIN.

Post by: Smeagol on October 27, 2005, 11:24:39 pm
He didn't beat my PanicRoom score =)

Or my Quix one for that matter. I rawked at those two.

No-one beat my Collapse score.

Nor my Military Wars score - but that was because it was shit.

Eh, after that "1I" game, I don't feel like setting any more pointless two-hour highscores. :p

I heard some shit that someone beat my pingu score before they went down, is this true?

From the SMF Arcade author:

Quote
Tomorrow is my last exam for this month... so i have more time for few weeks and next peroid (6 weeks) is easier than this (25hours/week)....

Expected [new version release] time: 20.11.2005 maybe later or before that (+-few days).

Test version: soon...

So, let's wait a few more days and hope the new version will fix our problems!

(If it doesn't, I'll have to do a full reinstall of the mod - this means deleting the database (records etc))
Title: Re: Forum games!
Post by: Smeagol on November 09, 2005, 06:31:44 pm
If it fixes the problems, brilliant. If not, then we can bar Spiff access to the arcade, and everyone is happy. Except Spiff, who should be concetrating on Iji anyway ;)
Title: Re: Forum games!

dunno where the hiscores went though :(

edit: got 'em

Yay ^_^. It's a pity the highscores are only reset after the game is played though.

Where is Spiff, anyway. He's not been in here for a month. I want more Iji.

Ditto. Someone go poke Spiff. He's ours now.

Title: Re: Forum games!
Post by: Spiff on December 06, 2005, 02:09:16 am
Eh, I was meaning to work like crazy on Iji during the holidays. I'm aiming to complete a new enemy (graphics and AI) and at least one more Sector, and maybe even the first boss and everything that includes (such as being able to retry the boss room if you die there). I'm rewriting the last quarter of the script to allow for two story paths, and I'll add character portraits for the chat sequences, providing I have access to a scanner. I've already started tweaking the engine.

Heh, my Duck Hunt highscore of 2500000 is still there, but only in the "personal best" column. Same for the other games. Oh well, too bored to do something like that again. :p

Post by: Smeagol on December 06, 2005, 09:45:23 am
Yay for Spiff!

The highscores re-appear after the game is played again. I think we're waiting until one of us has 17+ hours to spend on DuckHunt before any of us try to beat the highscore.
Title: Re: Forum games!

Do the tournaments work yet?

Bah, you can easily cheat at that game, it's pretty sad.
Title: Re: Forum games!
Post by: Spiff on December 07, 2005, 12:13:13 am
Don't see how you can cheat at the games I set highscores on, though the skill level stops increasing *very* early on, so it just comes down to how bored you are. :p Most of them only took an hour, anyway.

No you weren't, you had the highscore for Archer defence or w/e it's called and I think that was it. Spiff had a load.

I'm trying to get the bloodypingu highscore. Note: If you're playing about 20 games in different browser tabs, you also might get the possible cheating message.

I think they should add another game called "N Game". Its an awexome platformer. Uber funs.

I've cleared more than half of N, but it's getting so hard I'm hardly even playing it anymore.
The levels are just getting ridiculous.
