Track & Field Stuffs
« on: November 21, 2015, 12:50:37 PM »
This thread will be for anything T&F.  Questions, comments, personal bests, oddities ect...

One question I still have is about the 1000 point bonuses. They are on 5 of the 6 events. We can assume the space shuttle graphic was intended to be the bonus on the Hammer throw since this is the only event that does not seem to have one.  Was it ever in there or did they just not get around to making this bonus happen?

Now for a seemingly more simple one: How the Fk do you get a 9.76 long jump? Or any jump greater that 9.72? I've seen 9.74, 9.75 and 9.76. I did the 9.75 myself, but it is my one and only jump over 9.72 and I have no clue how I triggered it to happen after thousands and thousands of jumps. Probably 10k+ jumps in my life.

Another thing I noticed today is the high jump on my 4 player cocktail version seems to have different hit detection on player 4 compared to 1 and 2. I didn't try player 3 so I cant comment on that player. I did jumps that I swear would have been high enough to clear on player 1 or 2 side but they hit the bar. Just wondering if it's in my head or if there is any truth to it.

One thing for sure on the HJ is that gap that appears on the HJ uprights at 2.47 on player 1 and 2 didn't appear till 2.49 or 2.50 on player 4. I have to play again to see which one it appeared on.

So a question I have regarding the gap is: Does the gap not appear on player 4 on the upright version? I can easily switch my dips to upright and get the answer. Just thinking out loud right now.

You can see the gap in the bar clearly in this video. It gets one pixel bigger on each jump.

Regarding the 1000 point bonus, what happens if you get three hammer throws of the same distance?

I don't think 3 throws of the same distance is possible.  Maybe someone can prove me wrong.

The gap on the bar appears at 2.47 on P1 and 2.50 on P4.

Also, compare how close I was to the bar on P1 2.47 height and P4  2.50 height first attempt.

I did an interview for Rolling Stone/ Glixel about Track & Field. They put together a cool little story about the Konami competition from BITD.

This past weekend I had the opportunity to go to Twitch Headquarters in San Francisco to play some games for The Save the Children Foundation. I was lined up to play Vs Excitebike, Vs Gradius and the main reason I was there was because they wanted to see me play Track & Field. It was a great experience and I got to hang out with a bunch of awesome people and gamers. Too many to list, but I'm sure you know about Wes Copeland, Robbie Lakeman, Andrew G. and LordBBH since they are active members here on this forum.

This "schedule" shows who played what, but not at what time. Technical difficulties lead to lots of adjustments to keep this thing rolling.

https://horaro.org/superplay2016/schedule

The grand total raised for Save the Children was $47,142, half of which came from a donor that matched all other donations for the event.

Here's my Track & Field stuffs.

Hmmm, I still can't find it.  I checked out the 48 hour archive vid and it goes from T&F to Hec interview to Excitebike.

T&F on MAME? I messed with the idea since I got mame set up for the Oi-Lympics. But so far it's been nothing but frustration. I long jump WAY after the jump line. I foul on the Javelin. I have no clue on the timing on Hammer throw, other than hitting the throw button sometime yesterday for a throw today.

So i was willing to struggle through this BS. But what was killing me was my 4 finger strum on my rt hand only registering 2 or 3 hits and my 3 finger on my left only getting 1-2. Funny thing about that is if I only do my rt hand over and over with no left hand involved ALL 4 hits register. I was getting 16 per second with just my rt hand. Same story with my left. All 3 hits register and I was getting 12 per second. I have a program that shows how many hits per sec.

Here's the real BS. When I use both hands my hits per second have been averaging 17-18 per sec. I double finger tap almost that fast! 16 rt hand and 12 left hand should easily fall into 25-28 range. I AM physically hitting the buttons that many times. In an 8 second trial I hit over 200 times and register only 140-150 hits. When I slow down and press about 160-170 times it registers 150-155. I get the same results with micro and leaf buttons. I ran a few races and was getting 8.30ish. I jumped on my cab and did the same timing on my run and got 7.90.

So MAME seems to have issues with me pressing over 20x per sec. Slower gets better results. I only have this issue on a real cab when I go over 30x a sec.

MAME gets a  <mad>  <thefinger> up it's booty from me!
