10 minute text adventure
September 21, 2010

I've been looking into Inform 7 to write a text adventure and came across a few samples. The most amusing was here, and it takes place in just one room!

In case you feel like wasting a bit of time.

Warning: it kind of sucks if you get stuck on 19 points out of 20, since you have to go examine everything again. But it reminds me of my old efforts at IF where I only used basic verbs and even once created duplicate rooms where you got 10 points for taking ammunition from each one.

I miss not knowing how bad a programmer I was.

Extra super important bogus TT tiebreaker avoidance thread
August 09, 2010

Hi everyone. Here are my results as fed into the Big Perl File That Does The Stats. Tiebreakers may be a concern, so I want to make sure they are right. Here's what I got.

This is more important than ELO stuff cuz if it's wrong, the ELO is. So speak up or forever be a societally-repressed writer not getting the attention they deserve.

====================================

Team Janus vs Team Leroux 2-1

Bluberry vs Leroux 2-1
Janus vs Venter 2-1
Asherdeus vs Jerec 1-2

-----------------------------

Team WQ vs Team OD 1-2

Suskie vs Overdrive 2-1
Wolfqueen vs True 1-2
Genj vs Zipp 1-2

-----------------------------

Team WQ vs Team Leroux 0-3

Suskie vs Leroux 1-2
Wolfqueen vs Jerec 0-3
Genj vs Venter 1-2

-----------------------------

Team Janus vs Team OD 3-0

Ratings here. Snapshot to follow shortly.
July 22, 2010

Here are the ELO ratings...basically, it's logarithmic, with someone rated 120 points above the next person likely to get 2x as many votes. This is only for entertainment purposes & not for predictions, and a sweep will probably turn everything upside down.

Week 3:

1 Janus 2167
2 Jerec 2098
3 Bluberry 2051
4 Suskie 2051
5 Venter 2030
6 Overdrive 2026
7 Asherdeus 2009
8 Leroux 1965
9 True 1915
10 Genj 1901
11 Zipp 1901
12 Wolfqueen 1884

Week 2:

1 Jerec 2293
2 Janus 2238
3 Asherdeus 2200
4 Bluberry 2092
5 Venter 2036
6 Leroux 2030
7 Suskie 1970
8 Overdrive 1908
9 Zipp 1886
10 Genj 1840
11 True 1800
12 Wolfqueen 1707


Week 3 stats...no graphics yet.
July 20, 2010

And I forgot to look up my photobucket password or bring my script to work. So unformatted stuff first. Hammer on me to bring the formatted. My company is hoping to release the next version of their little software product, but they were hoping to last month, and I've let that mess with other stuff I need/want to do.

Graphics will go in the main thread, which I don't want to spoil with tacky texty stuff like this.

It's rather interesting right now with Team OD in 2nd but with the fewest overall votes. Team WQ could jump to first if things go right. If there were pundits, they would be blabbing about parity.

Team/Wins/Matches/Points
Team Janus 2 6 17
Team OD 2 4 11
Team Leroux 1 5 15
Team WQ 1 3 11
===============individuals================
Janus 3-0 7-2
Jerec 2-1 6-3

Stats, week 2, late and unformatted
July 19, 2010

So I forgot to run my programs. I forgot some were at work, some at home. I forgot they had a few bugs. And I forgot my photobucket password so I could upload a spreadsheet screenshot. So you will get the text only version for now, augmented to graphics when I get the chance. It's all in place. Thanks again for your patience.

As a bonus, player ratings tonight for weeks 2 and 3.

Team Janus 2 wins, 5 matches, 13 votes
Team Leroux 1 win, 4 matches, 11 votes
Team OD 1 win, 2 matches, 6 votes
Team WQ 0 wins, 1 match, 6 votes

Player, match record, votes
Janus 2-0 5-1
Jerec 2-0 5-1
Bluberry 2-0 4-2
Asherdeus 1-1 4-2
Venter 1-1 3-3
Leroux 1-1 3-3
Suskie 1-1 3-3
Zipp 1-1 3-3
True 1-1 2-4
Genj 0-2 2-4
Overdrive 0-2 2-4
Wolfqueen 0-2 1-5

This probably gets a lot less funny after 15 minutes. But the idea is pretty cool.
