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

Yeah that does happen on occasion. But there were a couple of other interesting quirks I ran into... 1) There was a case where I pushed the balloon down. WAY DOWN... like it went past the bottom of the screen and then came back to the top of the screen, went all the way down to the bottom of THAT, t...

Re: 2011 Time Trials - Round 3 - Joust

@Innuendo: Yeah, it definitely takes some practice to control the character. Reminds me of controlling Mario from SMB1 in the air... you really couldn't do it very well. @Chronos: I'm not sure what you're trying to say, but I figured that 10 stages was going to be too short (remember I was aiming fo...

Re: 2011 Time Trials - Round 3 - Joust

Here's a file that could greatly help in your jousting endeavors, especially getting through stage 8 where you have to deal with a Pterodactyl:

And I agree with both of you. I'm so clumsy. Post fixed.

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

Scores for this round are finalized. Additionally, I have standings after 2 rounds posted below the leaderboard for this round. Quite a 3-way competition we had there! What will the next round hold?

2011 Time Trials - Round 3 - Joust

The third game is going old school with Joust. I don't think this has been in any tournament... save John Cunningham's Golden Era Game Of The Week in March of 2004. I don't think there's much to be said about this popular game except the rules... so I'm just going to say straight time trial, with cl...

Indeed... 8:30, anybody? (I feel like I'm running an auction or something... :lol: )

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

I'm sure even the top players still fail stage 7 on occasion; that's a rough stage for sure.

But remember: You get to play for another day and you won't be seeing another puzzle round in the time trials. :)

I calculated it... 65,147 from your 8:12 recording of 6 stages completed.

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

Boy it's quiet around here... anyway, now that my thought of beating 10 minutes has become reality... and 9:30 looks quite likely to be broken as well, now I'm wondering if 9 minutes can be broken. I'm also asking myself why I didn't make the maximum 20 stages instead of 10... but I guess that's ano...

Yeah, I was 4/4 in playing back submitted recordings, so we play on with the current game.

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

Well, I'll take a look at the recordings and see if there's a big playback issue. If so... I guess I'll have to find another puzzle game. :(

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

The other thing that can help you is that you can press... I think it's shift+P to advance the recording one frame at a time. As long as you pressed F11 to see the frame counter, you should be able to calculate the start and stop points exactly.

EDIT: Shift+P, not Control+P. Thanks giro-x :)
