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
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.
