Should spiker be moved? : LUSENET : MAME Action Replay : One Thread

Shouldn't spiker be moved to a star game(no points) because it has a maximum score? I don't know if you've talked about that already.

I vote aye to that motion. GB9

I vote yay for that and otwalls.

-- Chad (, June 19, 2000.

My bad, we actually had a precedent vote about this. We're supposed to be subtracting points for vs. points against, although I think that that will be pointless (bad pun) for otwalls, since a perfect game is pretty damn easy. Then again, seems to me that otwalls also can be set to a harder difficulty.

I don't know, I'd rather toss both of them in the archive bin. They aren't terribly involving games and neither takes much skill when compared to a similar game such as, say, Goalie Ghost or even Hat Trick.

Considering the type of games I think that we can quietly archive them.

Another game with many tie is shanghai : all players scored 144 and plaiyng it I see that you play every time the same game (you had to do always the same things) I think that this is another game to archive

two other games which can be moves as far as I am concerned are:

Amazing maze - When using the Pause-butten this game is easy because the only difficulty is the time limit. Name that Tune - Look at my recording for this game (which is in 3rd place).

Spiker : I vote for the goal-average scoring system

-- phil (, June 21, 2000.

I want to add that it took me more than 2 hours to win my first match on spiker, and by the narrowest margin (11-9) ; so I think this game is not so easy (but maybe it's me who's damn bad at this game) and I wonder if somebody could win by 11-0 (I checked one of the "11-tie scores" input and it was a defeat by 0-11 !!)

I think we should adopt the excellent scoring system tested by skito on aof3 : score would be 10*attack - defense (for example my victory 11-9 would score 101) ; I would be surprised if there were so much ties after that

And if the idea goes on , maybe we could do the same for all soccer games ?

-- phil (, June 21, 2000.

I've done the scoring test and it doesn't add a whole lot of resolution to the scores, this one belongs in the * bin.

-- Chad (, June 24, 2000.

can you still upload scores to *gamename, by using the gamename (with out the star) when submiting? you should be able to do this just not get points for it.
