Crap Tournament 10 is now open for registration!
https://www.cagtournaments.com

Participants must register with the site before signing up for the tournament.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Crap Tournament is a yearly MAME competition where all the titles are selected based on their relative obscurity or overall lousiness.

Every year brings in new pure crap and some hidden gems - you'll play some of the worst games ever made, and discover some amazing titles you never would've played without the tournament.

The games are hilarious, but the competition is fierce. Think you're a true gamer? Come prove it in the Crap Arena.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The tournament will last 17 days, stretching over 3 weekends, beginning July 20th 12:00 AM Eastern and ending August 5th at 11:59 PM Eastern. This is a hard cutoff. All scores must be submitted by 11:59 PM Eastern on August 5th.

The tournament will consist of 15 games, none of which will be announced until the tournament begins. 10 will be announced at the start of the tournament, 3 will be announced at the beginning of the second weekend (July 27th), and 2 will be announced at the beginning of the closing weekend (August 3rd). Proper game settings will be detailed for each title.

The scoring format is simple: 15 points for first on any given title, 14 points for 2nd,... 1 point for 15th, and points are only awarded for places 1 through 15. Thus a perfect score for this tournament would be 225, regardless of the number of participants, and it's entirely possible to accumulate 0 points despite submitting a score for every game. In other words, the competition will be rough, and the winner will be the player who is the best all-around crapper.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Once the tournament officially starts, an easy submission process, live updating standings for each game, and an overall leader board will become visible.

All submissions must provide either an INP or link to a Twitch stream highlight.
WolfMAME 0.199 is the only acceptable MAME platform for this competition. If a player has cab access to one of the Crap titles they are of course welcome to play on the original hardware.

General tournament rules still apply: For MAME, no autofire, no pausing, and average recorded speed must be 95% - 101%. n
All scores must be submitted within 24 hours of when they were achieved.
In case of ties, first submission takes priority.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Get busy crappin' or get busy dyin', and prepare your buttholes.
*If you have problems with registration email: admin@cagtournaments.com
**P.P.S. Rumor has it there will be a rom pack floating around come tournament time.

Re: CTX: Important Update

For those unable to use 64-bit MAME, I have verified that all CTX games are both playable and have proper default dip settings in Wolf182 and I will be accepting inps from this version. Additionally, participants submitting stream highlights are allowed to use whatever version of MAME suits them, so long as they verify the dip settings align with those of Wolf199 and Wolf182.

I will release a file with all the necessary roms and MAME versions after the games have been revealed, July 20th 12AM Eastern.

CTX: Conclusion

Post by Von » Mon Aug 06, 2018 2:22 am

Oh what a glorious Crap! Congratulations to all who suffered through these past two weeks... The toilet paper roll is empty and your dumphole is probably bleeding, but you survived.

Let us once again recognize the master of crap, Zerst, who with his 5th win out of 10 contests has forever cemented his legendary status.

And a proud salute to JasonV91 and John McAllister for their respective 2nd and 3rd place finishes -- impressive crapping fellas.

New "world" records were set on 10 of the 15 games:
Zerst tamed the Firebeast, Hot Schocked the world, and mastered the Angle of his Dangle.
RedStar showed he had the Guts, and had a Blast driving to the sun and back.
WFLIMusic has enough wood for years after all that Logging and will probably need it with all the purses he Dream Shopped. Kappa
PG3 lost his fucking mind and went full PG3 on Jump Coaster.
DaLar crushed his own Pig Out record and will hopefully submit a novel to MARP detailing every facet of his
conquest.
And Barra was no dummy, Gunning down every Desert animal he could find.

Thank you one and all. It being the 10th anniversary of Crap, we went a little extra this year, but through your grit and determination I feel the tournament was ultimately a success. I don't think the two-week-15-game format should replace the old tournament structure, but if the Crap continues to grow, this tournament at least shows us the participation level is there to support a larger scale.

Finally, to my brothers in crap, Billhouse and Johnbart: YOU GUYS ARE THE SHIT! These guys have been with me since the beginning and none of this would be possible without their enduring support. <3 <3 <3 10 years is a long time, but we have a new tournament website now, and I foresee many future contests. Long live the Crap!

Update!: WFLIMusic set the Logger record during the tournament but outside the tournament a certain Serphentizer broke the record literally minutes after the tournament ended. Serph streamed it live here:
