Crap Tournament 9
« on: April 05, 2017, 09:02:23 PM »
Crap Tournament 9 is now open for registration!

http://tournaments.twingalaxies.com/#/event/crapTournament9/main

Participants may be prompted to sign up for the site before they can register 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 10 days, stretching over 2 weekends, beginning May 5th at 12:00 AM Eastern and ending May 14th at 11:59 PM Eastern. This is a hard cutoff. All scores must be submitted by 11:59 PM Eastern on May 14th.

The tournament will consist of 12 games, none of which will be announced until moments before the tournament start. Of these 12 games, 10 will be announced at the start of the tournament, while the remaining 2 will only be announced at the beginning of the closing weekend (May 12th, 12:00 AM Eastern). Proper game settings will be detailed for each title.

The scoring format is simple: 12 points for first on any given title, 11 points for 2nd,... 1 point for 12th, and points are only awarded for places 1 through 12. Thus, a perfect score for this tournament would be 144, 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 for all registered participants.

As part of the submission process participants will have the option to upload a screenshot, an INP, or link to a Twitch stream highlight or the RetroUprising scoreboard. Screenshots are required for all submissions which do not include an INP or Twitch highlight. For scores that achieve a top 5 placing on a game, the player must submit an INP or Twitch highlight. Submissions done with RetroUprising automatically fulfill the screenshot and INP requirement.

WolfMAME 0.106, WolfMAME 0.185, and RetroUprising are the acceptable MAME platforms for this competition. If a player somehow actually 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%. All scores must be submitted within 24 hours of when they were achieved.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Is anyone else not seeing Crap Tournament 9 on the main TG Tournaments page? I can follow VON's link just fine and get there but I'm using Chrome and I've cleared the cache and everything.

Anyway, registered.

The Crappening is happening!  And now with almost 20% more pig!!

The leader board is live and several scores have already been submitted.
http://tournaments.twingalaxies.com/#/event/crapTournament9/main

Here is a download for the first 10 roms: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B9a5AVyFyw4qQmhoLWczYkNaRnc/view

The documented settings are default for all games in both 106 and 185, however I did not check RU settings and it is possible they do not align with those of 106 and 185.  Please inform me of any games where this is the case and the tournament site will be updated accordingly.

Thank you everyone.  Have fun.

Chemistry?  Damn.  Congrats.  Same deal w/ me tomorrow - Mother's Day, a dozen in-laws and 4 moms coming to my house.  Good luck everyone - maybe I'll manage to put up a Butasan score, probably not.  GREAT games this year, IMHO.
