Awesome, seems a lot of fun! How did you setup worms? It was played on one machine? It was team based? Which version did you use? Spill all the details :)
We played it on four machines simultaneously, max 4 players per machine and limited the participants to 16 to make everything easier (allowed more players to other compos where it's easier to qualify). Winners of these four simultaneous qualifying round games advanced to semi-finals which were one-on-one matches and winners got in the gold game and losers to the bronze game (earlier we have taken all four to the final game, but thought to make it quicker by this solution this year, and easier to see the final order).
We have been using Worms DC WHDLoad version. Qualifying games were for two wins to let everyone play properly, but semi-finals for one win... and bronze game for one win too, but the gold game for two wins again. We increased dynamites and sheeps to two, restricted blow torch and drill to two, and disabled girders completely to get the matches to end in reasonable time. Maybe it'd be better to disable blow torch and drill completely too, these things tend to make games too static.Quote:
On 30-31/03 we held the annual amicamp and run a swos 16/17 championship (won the title for 2nd time :P) and a high-score league of Worthy. Btw final match on swos was against Tsak who is the graphic artist of Pixel Glass :)
Cool! We've had Worthy as hiscore game at two our events now. This time we also had SkillGrid as second hiscore game and it seemed to be a good solution to have one game that needed more thinking and another more hectic shoot'em up.. both games found their own fans :)Quote:
Idk if you have checked morphos fans group on fcbk but I have posted a dual screen morphos setup. If you combine it with your tuorial for 4 joystics on e-uae from morphos.library, we can now setup teamplayer championships: i.e. over the net, tv sports basketball or even 4-way multiplayer but with more space for everyone to sit down like on skidmarks, bomberman etc.
I don't use fb much, so haven't seen that :) Let me know if you get e-uae to work with four joysticks.. I've only tested this kind of setup with Wings Battlefield... and of course 4-player adapters on real Amigas, but not in emulation.
