NEW TOURNAMENT. Join now.

Post by Hans Stockmann » Fri Jun 13, 2008 2:00 pm

Well, since the community's in a bit of a slump in the areas it's supposed to be so great in, it's time for another tournament. Since I'm running it, naturally this means it's old-school. Ish.

Well, you see, Xen made this nifty little thing called the Balance Hack, and we're not using it for anything. At all. So, now is the time for us to do so and have fun. Yes kiddies, that's right, it's time for something you thought you were all free from: ANOTHER SAVESTATE SWAP TOURNAMENT.

I suppose we'll do 16 entrants or something. I don't know. I'm just starting this while in the middle of finishing my ramblings about how well a photo of some disgruntled Tibetans taken from an overhead view is presenting ideas related to the Olympic Torch Relay.

If you don't know what Savestate Swap is, it's when you have a turn on an emulator, save the savestate, then send it to your opponent who then uses it to take his turn and then sends the updates savestate to you. It's tedious, it's time-consuming, but it's the only way we can actually use that Balance Hack. Well, unless you live near any other members and wish to play the match physically. Whoo.

Does Xen have some Vs. maps on his hack?

Won't it work over wi-fi friend codes if we both have the same hack setup?

he wants to use the balance hack of AW2

viewtopic.php?f=11&t=91

yeah you won't get 16 members, just try and get some people fudge around and playing with it, better way to honour WWN's legacy

anyway, pichu, or anyone for that matter. i'll take you on any symmetrical/close to reasonable IS map, you pick your side. considering the hilarious crumpets Xen's done to the game, it's probably no where near balanced, but hey, that's the fun in it all.

also willing to do AW1/AW2 SSS

i trust anyone i play not to luck tamper, my promise to you is that I won't do the same.

Ahahaha. If we wanted to pick a side unbiased, we'd always have a third party flip a coin in a 3-way MSN convo.

I used to hire Fal for that mostly. Unless I was battling him, of course.

So if you want to do it oldschool, you can contact me on MSN if you want a coin flipped or something silly like that. I use random.org if you want to know.

Placeholder post. I'll edit my post as soon as I get my hands on an AW2 ROM and the balance hack.
Just know that if I do get those things, I probably will join the tournament.

I can be a third party for FoW matches, if nothing else.

Just a FYI, there's a bug in the latest version of the hack.

Subs will un-dive when you hit "end turn" so keep that in mind. If you guys actually end up starting this *after* I finish my exams, I'll fix that up. <_<
