Challgene the Amiga Offline Tournament

Postby ThorN » Sat Nov 22, 2008 5:57 pm

Xerus had the good idea, to have a tournament together with Amiga players. There is a offline Tournament on the EAB (English Amiga Board). To challenge them, we should know before, what we want to do.

- So anybody who has contacts to the EAB, or other Amgia gamers who would be interested in challenging us?
- What game is nearly identical on both system (and look better on the ST :-)

Will be interesting, if we could manage such a compo

Lethal Xcess comes to mind....except for the soundtrack 1:1 on Amiga as on the ST.
Same for Nebulus and Rick Dangerous....(and probably lots and lots others)

Lethal Xccess could be a candidate,

just saw, that there is a EAB group on Facebook, and the godfather of Kick Off Alkis "get 10 in the halffinal" P. joined the group, so I will drop him a mail

My plan was to surrender immediately after the start :-)

I think that would be something very intersting. I see the ATARI gamers are ready, hope the Amiga gamer will respect us when we ask, but I'm looking forward to it.

Of course we'd have to be willing to play some Amiga games in WinUAE or something too

I thought the idea was to compete on the same game on both platforms - not to play games on the other system.
99% of the games are identical - gameplay wise.

OK, I mustn't have understood.
I think it could be difficult to ensure a game is exactly the same on both platforms, even if it comes down to subtle control mechanics and speeds of certain sprites (let alone frame rate, size of playing area on screen, colours that might make some things easier on one platform than another).
I guess if no one cares, and we pick games as similar as possible (as discussed earlier in the thread) that's fine, but really sensitive people might say the competition is unfair unless you play on X system, and it could be a weakness of the concept.

What I thought was being proposed was that for a round like Gods, we'd have some Amiga people use Steem and play the ST version along with us, and then we could pick a game on the Amiga and we all play that.

Anyway, either way I think it's cool if Amiga and ST people can come together on something

If need be we can play on the 2 versions and add the scores/times; that way, we can avoid any problems and played at all games :)
With this rules, the Amiga players can even play at Shadow of the Beast on ST :lol:

You know that each round will degenerate into the Amoeba users slagging off the ST version dont you? I'm not sure I could take that on a weekly basis. :lol:

And we all know which game they'll choose. Nah, the best way to organise an ST vs Amiga tournament will be in games like falcon or vroom where you can link the too machines for 1 on 1 versus.
Which is a pretty good idea for a combined oldskool demo party somewhere in central europe and I wonder why noone ever thought of that before?

If somebody like to play a atari game, even that he normaly prefers the amgia, he could simple participate in the STOT, if a atari gamer like to play amiga games, he simply participate in the EAB league.

I will get in touch with the EAB organisers, to have a combined round in a game that is similar at both maschines so that everybody plays on his system, but the score table will be combined.

We will see what happens. There are enough events, where it would be possible to have a competition on a game on both maschines like Vroom or Stunt Car Racer, first there have to be some players of both system present on such parties.

So one step after the other.
