Re: Yolympics 2017

Forgive me, as it's been a while. Is this limited to Arcade/Coin-op games this year, or are we including some Nes/Snes/Genesis and stuff of the sort?

Would it be a prospect to do different cross-site tournaments in the future? Ones with rules not pertaining to scores, and rather to completion or whatever the case may be? Trying to get a high score in games frustrates me a great deal personally. I'm not really from that era. Just asking anywho. I really enjoyed one tourney we did years ago where teams tried to take down a list of games to completion first before the others.

This particular tourney is for MAME/Arcade titles but they did do a Nintendo (NES, SNES, GB, etc) tourney recently and likely to do another in the near future. I did not play in that one so I'm not sure what the format was for scoring but I've linked the results below.

Also I have Talbot, Eberle and Lucic in my fantasy league. I hope your team continues their successes. Cheers.

It may just be because I was tired, but I had some weird feeling I was reading the Edmonton Oilers forums for a second haha. Thanks! It's been a long wait for a decent team to re-emerge. I'm enjoying it a lot.

Regarding tourneys. I'd like to be involved again at some point, especially given my extra free time for the next 9 months or so. I'll stay tuned

Re: Yolympics 2017

Games have been selected and the draft is finished. We are officially read for Yolympics 2017! The start date is January 28th at midnight EST. The tournament site still needs to be updated to reflect this time, as well as the teams and games list...but January 28th is the correct date.

For now, please check the following links for team and game lists. TG subforums will be available shortly for each team. Good luck!

Team List
Game List

---------- Post added 01-25-2017 at 05:37 PM ---------- Previous post was 01-24-2017 at 12:25 PM ----------

TG threads have been created for each team and the links are below. You will need the password to access your respective forum, so contact your captain or myself for the password. If you're not sure which team you're on, check the Team List.

Spaceballs - Captain: QAOP Spaceman
Verizontal Mk. II - Captain: ExedExes
Infallible Team Generator v1.0 - Captain: pwnasaurus
Team Beef - Captain: dwwnp

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT RETROUPRISING

It has been reported that longer games have had problems when uploading/saving INPs at RU. Games under an hour/hour and a half seem to work fine, but longer games have had problems. Use RU at your own risk if playing any of these longer games (e.g. Commando).

Re: Yolympics 2017

If anyone has issues with games, recordings, etc., post them on the public forums. If you need individual attention, PM me. I'm filling in as the day-to-day admin and game mod for the next month or so. I'm participating in Yolympics, so if I don't get back to you right away, blame Wolf.

Re: Yolympics 2017

If anyone decides to use WolfMAME 0.106 or WolfMAME 0.181 instead of RU, please note the following:

PLEASE BE SURE TO DISABLE NVRAM WHEN RECORDING INPS WITH 106 AND 181

INPs that do not play back correctly for verifiers will be rejected. An INP recorded with NVRAM may play back correctly for you, but will most likely not play back for us.

In 106:

-If you're using the 106 GUI, NVRAM is disabled by default when recording.

In 181:

-NVRAM is not automatically disabled when recording an INP through the 181 GUI. Therefore, you must use one of the following methods to safely record an INP.

For 106 and 181:

-If you're using the command-line, the provided batch file "record.bat" will disable NVRAM. It is not recommend to double-click this file to run MAME, though it will work. Please use it as a command: record gamename inpname.
-Or, if you're using the command-line but not the batch file, add "-nvram_directory NUL" to your command (no apostrophes).
-Or, edit the mame.ini file and change the line that says "nvram_directory" from "nvram" to "NUL" (no apostrophes). The mame.ini file is in your main, root MAME folder. If no mame.ini is present, you can create one at the command line by typing "mamep106-vc -cc" for 106, or "mamearcade -cc" for 181.
-Or, manually delete all the files in the "nvram" folder BEFORE EVERY ATTEMPT AT RECORDING AN INP.

I know that all seems complicated, but it will save us all from headaches during the tournament. Thank you!

A bonus system has been devised that will reward teams for submitting early and often with high quality scores.

Here is the bonus score formula. For complexity and time reasons, this will not be automatically applied to team scores on the tournament site. I will be calculating the bonuses at the end of each week and they will be manually added to each team's overall score.

The bonus is applied only to games that have a full set of 6 scores and is applied at the end of each week. The amounts are:

Week 1: (1 / Average Ranking) * 100
Week 2: (1 / Average Ranking) * 80
Week 3: (1 / Average Ranking) * 60
Week 4: (1 / Average Ranking) * 40
Week 5: (1 / Average Ranking) * 20

So, for example, after Week 1, Team A has the top 6 overall spots in Game A. Therefore, Team A's Average Ranking on Game A is ((1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6) / 6) = 3.5. The bonus is then (1 / 3.5) * 100 = 28.57. For that week, Team A gets a bonus of 28.57 points on Game A. Those are permanent points they get to keep, regardless of how the rest of the tournament goes. If they maintain the exact same rankings on Game A for the rest of the tournament the bonus points would be:

Week 1: 28.57
Week 2: 22.86
Week 3: 17.14
Week 4: 11.43
Week 5: 5.71
Total Bonus for Game A: 85.71

Repeat for all games that have 6 scores at the end of each week.

So, submit early, often, and with high quality scores on every game!

Week 1 is over! Infallible Team Generator v1.0 is currently in the lead, but only by 78 points! For those of you wondering how the bonus points factor in, well...

The bonus system for this tournament has been scrapped.

After evaluating the standings and consulting with all the captains, I have decided that the bonus system I devised could cause a team to be essentially knocked out of the tournament after the first week. In the interest of fair play, and the Wolf tournament goal of including as many people as possible, I can't let that happen. The tournament therefore will only be scored using the top 6 scores from each team. Thank you to all the players who busted their asses this week to help their teams...please keep those great scores coming!

Week 2 is in the book! ITG remains in the lead. They have about the same score has last week (just few points shy of 1700), but the intense competition and the rise of Spaceballs means the ITG lead has actually increased to almost 200 points! Can anyone challenge the Infallible Team Generator v1.0, or is this now just a battle for 2nd place? Wait and see! :-)

Re: Yolympics 2017

Week 3 is finished! Again, ITG is on top by nearly 200 points. SB and BEEF are trading blows, trading off between 2nd and 3rd place by the hour. Will one of them break through and make a run at ITG? Verizontal is close on their heels...do they stand a chance?!

Week 4 is complete! We are now in the final stretch of Yolympics 2017. The cutoff for submissions is Sunday, March 5, 2017, 11:59 PM EST. This is a hard cutoff. All submissions must be received by this time.

ITG still holds on to their 200 point lead, while BEEF and Spaceballs battle for 2nd. VZ is not far behind. Will anyone be able to make a push for 1st or will ITG coast to the win?

Re: Yolympics 2017

Yolympics 2017 is over! Congratulations to the winning team, with 1,695 points: Infallible Team Generator v1.0! While Verizontal Mk. II made a valiant run, Team Beef managed to secure 2nd place in the final hours of the tournament with 1,489 points. Verizontal finished with 1,485 points and Spaceballs finished with 1,331.

Congratulations are also in order for the top player of the tournament. With 423 points and averaging a top 4 score in every game: The_Pro!

This tournament saw 74 people register, 62 people people submit scores, and 59 people score points for their teams. For those that are curious, if the bonus system had remained in place the final rankings would have been the same, but with a larger point spread between each team.

Thanks to everyone for the great scores and great competition and I hope to see you all next time!

In my haste to post the final update, I definitely left out some thank-yous.

Thank you to best set of captains we've had for this tournament: pwnasaurus, dwwnp, ExedExes, and QAOP_Spaceman. You guys did an excellent job in drafting your teams. Now that the tournament is over, I took a quick glance at the TG threads and I can see that you all were actively updating and motivating your teams the whole time.

Although score verifications couldn't keep up with the pace of submissions this time around, I'd like to thank krehztim for his work in verifying RU scores. And of course, thanks to Wes Copeland for his working in running the actual tournament site.
