Title: Danmakufu Contest #4 - Laser Light Show (Results!)
Post by: Blargel on February 12, 2010, 02:38:34 pm
Danmakufu Contest #4
Laser Light Show

The contest is now closed
See the results here. (http://www.shrinemaiden.org/forum/index.php?topic=5038.msg269466#msg269466)

Hey guys! Time for another contest! As the name implies it involves lasers. The main rule is you can only use lasers. This means no normal bullets.

Guidelines:

I will be doing the judging. Contest closes on February 21nd, 2010 at 23:59:59 GMT. Any script not submitted by that timestamp according to this forum's clock will be disqualified. Please include your name somewhere in your script's description or title to help in organization and judging. In the spirit of the last two contests, I will also say that I may possibly submit an entry but will not judge it, but not submit one anyway.

Good luck to all the entrants.

Edit: The deadline has been extended for a week. The new deadline is February 28nd, 2010 at 23:59:59 GMT. Good luck on your entries.

mega shou remakes :| most of these entries are gonna kill me if I try them... :ohdear:

I'm gonna try to submit an entry for this one...(completely not shou-related... meaning... probably no/not that many curvy lasers) expect something from me not too soon though (hope I'll do better this time)

Stickied and wishing all the contestants good luck. I won't be joining this either. I basically don't have the will or time to currently work on dnh. I prefer to have that little spare time spend on Iji or Dcs

GRAAARGH Why must thin lasers have such an abysmal collision detection?!

...also, I'm obviously in if I can find myself enough time to flesh out a whole script...

If CreateLaserC didn't obliterate my framerate I would have done this just because of your post.  Done it and lost anyways.

Am I allowed to use bullets with no hit detection or graphics? because i need them in many patterns to create subordinate lasers :(

on a side note:
Obj_Create(OBJ_SINUATE_LASER);
ObjSinuateLaser_SetWidth(obj,15);
ObjSinuateLaser_SetLength(obj,75);
commands for curvy object lasers, they behave as bullets for most part. aside from the curvyness
these functions are undocumented as far as i know

I'm gonna only be playing the script, not looking through them. As long as I don't SEE any bullets (as in, they are invisible and don't kill the player), you'll be fine.

Yes you can have familiars. The familiars are also bound by the "only lasers" rule. Also, I hope you don't plan on abusing the hitbox of the familiar to kill the player.

Shouln't lasers look shiny? Regular bullets should shine like that (except maybe for 03's.)

Your rules on lasers that act like bullets are unclear. Do you mean that you can't have lasers that act like bullets period, or none that act, and look like them?

If a laser can plausibly be mistaken as a bullet in any way, you are disqualified. Do not try your luck.

like for example take a bullet whice,s size is 16x16 and make the laser have the size 32x32?

I asked more or less out of paranoia. I'm using lots of lasers as really long bullets in essence. (150x7 dosn't sound too confusible with a bullet)

EDIT: I am dissapoint. I just realised the rules forbid Nue-stule laser-bullets. :<
Title: Re: Danmakufu Contest #4 - Laser Light Show
Post by: Chronojet ⚙ Dragon on February 14, 2010, 08:13:16 pm
I have a laser that's 250x250 px. That shouldn't possibly be mistaken as a bullet.  :yukkuri:

Instead it'd be mistaken for a angry Nuke-tan shooting disqualification rays.

That's fine.

That's kinda iffy. Try thinking from the perspective of a non-Danmakufu scripter. Something like what you described may just look like a giant pixellated bullet to them instead of a laser.

Post by: Prime 2.0 on February 15, 2010, 07:32:29 am
Not that I'm entering or anything, but what about a laser that bends into a circle and flies at the player?
Title: Re: Danmakufu Contest #4 - Laser Light Show
Post by: Blargel on February 15, 2010, 08:27:42 pm
That would be one amazingly programmed laser. Considering how curvy lasers behave in Danmakufu, the only way to do that would be a bendy effect object with invisible bullets positioned along it.

I just had an idea that sounds good on paper no pun intended but will probably flop in practice. Let's see if I can make it work for this -- or finish it, for that matter.

EDIT: ...Nope, don't see how it would work. Back to the drawing board.

Sure, why not? I'll give this one a go.

http://www.mediafire.com/?zn2nmwnyyde (http://www.mediafire.com/?zn2nmwnyyde)

I don't think it's particularly exceptional, but... eh. I'll bring up the rear, at least. I could barely come up with anything decent that involved only lasers and that I could wrap my mind around actually getting to work properly.

You can ask about it in the Q&A thread, or get on irc (http://webchat.ppirc.net/?channels=danmakufu) if you want. Sometimes the answer gets overlooked, and needs a second mind to think about it. Don't worry about it being copied or anything, we're not not like that here. Well, I'm not.

Wish I could participate, but I don't know anything about programming.

Oh well, I can at least look forward to playing these. Already played the first one. That first spellcard was the best one in it. Did a perfect pacifist on the entire script as well.

Of all the times to hit on a huge flood of ideas, why NOW do I have too much else to do?

I might enter, but only if I can get all this other stuff done.

Post by: Nimble on February 19, 2010, 11:26:14 am
Oh.... 32 days left, too quite.

Just got some idea, but may be I can't make it in time - final exam and too many work to clear before 21 Feb'. I'll try my best.

Since victory by default is kind of boring, I think I'll increase the number of entries by 1.  :V

My entry. (http://www.mediafire.com/?ljywtjijzgt)
Contains version for normal and lunatic difficulty.

Some of the lasers are kind of bullet-like, but given how they are used I hope they fit still within the boundaries of the contest. Also, if the last card causes slow down, then I am sorry. It runs fine on my PC, but I think it may prove problematic...

There's less than a day left! Hurry up if you plan to submit something!

It's official; I'm not putting in an entry. But I'll have something that fits the contest's rules, no doubt.
So... you're not entering the contest but you're making something that fits the rules. Am I supposed to judge it or not?  :/

If I get it in before the deadline, go ahead. I'd been contemplating how to get the scripts to work in my head, so that's why I got those first two done so quickly.

You might have to excuse a lack of polish; I had to write a paper and a lab report recently, and I have a test in a couple of days.

After discussing it for like thirty seconds on IRC, I've decided to extend the deadline due to the difficulty of the subject matter. Because most people can only work their Danmakufu stuff on weekends, the extension will be a week long.

The new deadline is February 28nd, 2010 at 23:59:59 GMT. Good luck on your entries.

After discussing it for like thirty seconds on IRC, I've decided to extend the deadline due to the difficulty of the subject matter. Because most people can only work their Danmakufu stuff on weekends, the extension will be a week long.

The new deadline is February 28nd, 2010 at 23:59:59 GMT. Good luck on your entries.

Extend!!

Started something today, But doesn't hardly hold a card to some of the work here lol.

Either way pleased I got the maths in it working, if I can be bothered before the end of the deadline, I'll make some nice graphics for it, elsewise I'll package it with some existing ones I made for a my own game lol.

Think I'll try and think up a few extra cards to go with it as well, one alone isnt good enough when you see people with three in there entries  :o

It's easy. Just put a file named "STG_Frame" in the "img" folder in the root of the danmakufu folder

It's only a headache because we're unorganized about it. People who release things that require stuff from the /lib folder really should be telling us which files should be in there and giving a download link to all the stuff that is needed for his script to work. It really is more convenient to everyone else if you just package everything together though, even if it does cause more repeated code between scripts.

Also, AweStriker:
Quote from: Blargel
If I download your script and it errors out on me due to missing shot replace files, absolute file paths, or similar things, you will be disqualified during the judging period.
That implied that I expect the scripts to run regardless of where I extract it, even if it's in a brand new th_dnh folder with no lib.
Title: Re: Danmakufu Contest #4 - Laser Light Show
Post by: Helepolis on February 23, 2010, 07:53:58 am
IMO: Lib folder should die, it shouldn't ever exist. The only three folders that are legal to be created in your DNH folder should be: 'se' 'img' and maybe 'manual'  if you want to add Html based manual.

Aside from that, anything that has to do with scripts do not belong there.

How would someone that submitted 3 spellcards be "graded" as opposed to submitting just one? Is the scoring going to be done on an attack-by-attack basis, or on the person's entry as a whole? In other words, is having one really good spellcard worth more than having 3 kinda good ones?

From my perspective, quality is generally preferred over quantity. The only thing is that with three cards you have a variety of opportunities to impress the judge instead of just one.

Basically what Drake said. Quality over quantity is preferred (quality AND quantity would be even better :V), but when it comes down to it, all the judging is really gonna be done with my gut feeling. If there is a submission that is just one awesome spellcard and a submission that is three slightly worse spellcards, then the three will probably win. If, however, the three-card submission is two okay cards and one pretty cool card, the one awesome spellcard will probably win.

So Blargel...

I'd still like to know whether my entry is fine the way it is or not, because two of the attacks feature lasers one may consider too bullet-esque. If you told me now, I would be able to still whip out another spellcard or two to replace the card(s) in question, but tomorrow I may not have enough time to get them done before the deadline...

I seriously haven't downloaded anything in this thread yet and my internet is being terrible. A general guideline I guess would be that the laser is 3 times longer than it is wide or more. You can PM me a screenshot or something if you want because I'm not going to be downloading anything until judging day.

This is Iddyea, a fairy who lives in my subconscious (seriously). She talks to me in dreams and gives me small suggestions even if I'm awake. She said that she was sad because nobody believed that she was real since there was no proof, but I'm either too nice or too insane, so I do. So I started working on this contest, but I didn't know who to make the boss. When I went to bed that night, I had a dream about these patterns - so I made them.

It comes with two scripts with four difficulties each. Subconscious "Labyrinth of the Mind" is my main entry, while Dream "Multichromatic Trance" is more of an extra (though I still want it graded of course). Lunatic might be a tad much (I don't play on that difficulty yet, so it's hard to balance for it), so I suggest starting on Hard or lower. And as one more note, both patterns are semi-random, but they're always possible - you might occasionally get a really hard section, but that's part of the fun.

Are we allowed to include any music in the submission? Got a nice satori one I downloaded that works well. I Tried to mix my own track then found out im missing a driver I need write the mp3 (and I cant do any downloading for the rest of the month) :/ ah well.

Either way got a submission pretty much ready, just dunno whether to package it with the track or not.

I'll give everyone elses a shot when the month starts (and comp ends). looking forward to azure's mad sounding one and the fractalicous one.

As much as I want to say no music (because of my horrendous internet), that wouldn't be very nice because sometimes music improves the mood of the script a lot. Just try to keep the file size reasonable.

Well, Azure, I played your script, and it's awesomely good and fun to do

The only problem I saw, was exactly the player's view during it; everything is too bright

I use ReimuA (Homming Shots) for most scripts I play, and I gotta say it was pretty blinding, especially with her big ammulets

I think that the greenish BG kindda makes it worse..

Well, apart from this, it's great! I loved the way the SC's tittle apears <3
Title: Re: Danmakufu Contest #4 - Laser Light Show
Post by: Azure Lazuline on February 28, 2010, 07:24:53 am
Use a character that doesn't use so many add-blended overlapping shots. ReimuA makes everything hard to see in every script; it's not a problem with mine specifically (though it might make it slightly worse).

Thanks for the comments on it, everyone. It's good to know my little dream fairy is getting some attention!

ReimuA makes everything hard to see in every script; it's not a problem with mine specifically (though it might make it slightly worse).
This is effect is worsened by one of the main problems posed by the contest's limitation:

Every single thing that tries to kill the player must be a laser. Turning a regular bullet into a laser forces the render type of the graphic to change to ADD. Everything glows, so overlapping patterns become increasingly hard to read. ReimuA turns this general problem up to overkill, not just in Azure's script.

If you really want to have a homing shot type, you could use my Suika player. [/shameless advertising]  :V

Fair point, If I had the driver I needed to cut down the music (and more than 5mb of my months internet left that I could download it, lol) Then I'd have cut the music file down and then added it.

But since I haven't, And therefore can't, adding an 8mb 5 min long file for the sake of 60 seconds of play doesn't seem justified. I can understand your situation with limited net, im in it  :V

Theres my upload, roughly 874kb, got custom SFX and grafics. Graphics are shameless cut from one of my other projects as I didn't have time to make a new character or BG. Ah well, they seem to work alright. Except the cut in. Dunno why it glitches.

6 hours late to announce that the contest is now closed. I will be spending the next few hours just downloading the damn entries. You can expect the results in maybe two or three days.

EDIT: For some inexplicable reason, I cannot download the following files from MediaFire:

-Kayorei- Laser Light Show Entry.rar
Contest #4 Laser Light Show (Bark).rar
GlowingLightOrb 2.zip
Merlin Lazer Challenge.RAR
Suikamahaha.rar

MediaFire just times out before even starting the download. I have everyone else's entries and will start with those while waiting for either MediaFire to stop being stupid, or a mirror of the files.

EDIT: Nevermind, got someone on IRC to mirror it for me (thanks ChaoStar).
Title: Re: Danmakufu Contest #4 - Laser Light Show
Post by: Blargel on March 01, 2010, 09:21:51 am
I lied. Done judging. First, my reactions, impressions, and general criticism of everyone's entries.

Bark
The first attack has very nice design. The way the lasers spawn makes cool patterns and overall its difficulty doesn't feel cheap. The second attack felt kind of claustrophobic. Spaces seemed a bit small but I got used to it later. It got kind of boring then since you just find a small space every time. The final attack is pretty boring til the 3rd part. Then it feels extremely cheap. Superspeed lasers are generally a bad idea and the curvy lasers that were going in and out give no particular warning that they will actually go back in, causing me to run into them multiple times at the edge of the screen. Not a bad entry overall, but not exceptional either.


AweStrikerNova
Despite warnings from me and other people, you still didn't package the shot replace script with your script. It errored on me from a missing shot replace script so you are disqualified.


Hoppefrosk
What in the world am I fighting? Your first attack has a nice effect with the red lasers, but it's ridiculously cheap how the blue lasers just trap you while it spawns on top of you. If you didn't spawn every laser based off the player's position but only first one and then the rest are based off the first laser's position, that would've helped. Second attack was pretty boring until the lasers came in from the top. But it was still pretty easy. Your last attack on the other hand is ridiculously hard, mostly because of how all the other lasers cover the warning laser that two lasers are about to spawn right on top of me. When the whole screen gets covered in that design, my framerate drops ridiculously too. On the plus side, that design is interesting and I wonder how you made it. I'll need to look at your script in the near future.


Azure
Holy shit. Custom cut-ins, custom fonts, custom sprites, custom sound effects, custom background... pretty much as customized as you can get! All your effects are super cool and eyegasmic and I actually spent a good minute with invincibility on just watching your spellcard background.

Labryrinth of the Mind is really fun to play despite the simiplicity of the idea. However, the randomness at the end does throw some pretty unfair things at your if you're unlucky. (I swear random number generators hate me.) Multichromatic Trance however is rather plain danmaku-wise. It just feels like random spam, although it is rather pretty random spam because of your custom everything. One thing to nitpick about is the fact that I use MarisaA and your boss running around all over the screen doesn't exactly make it easy to hit it.


Kayorei
The first thing that I noticed after the custom sprite was that the lasers weren't very pretty looking. Lasers generally look better if you just use the default Danmakufu ones or a sprite sheet specifically made for additive blending. Anyways, moving on to the danmaku. First attack is a neat idea and pretty well executed. However, the 4 lasers that spawn on the boss that rotate seem kinda random and out of place. The second attack caught me off guard. About 5 times. Another nice idea, but it feels more full of cheap shots. At one point, the big laser the boss shot at me blocked off my escape route while one of the yellow lasers fell on me. The third attack is a super cheap shot. The glow effect gives the illusion that you can't go past them without getting killed. Then you realize this isn't true when the lasers rotate into you. When I tried again, I was cheap shotted by the sudden extending of the lasers.


Iryan
Haha, Walfas cutins. I've gotta say that the first attack doesn't really look like it belongs with the other two attacks. It's pretty plain and rather boring compared to the rest of the entry. Your second attack is just plain awesome though. I liked how it got increasingly hectic as more and more lasers lingered around. The final attack is a fractal. A freaking fractal. I always thought that doing a fractal with danmaku would be pretty cool but I took the time to think about how to make one, and here you are turning it into dodgeable danmaku at the same time. The double fractal was ridiculous at the end and my brain just sorta froze up when I realized two were spawning at once. And then the lasers grew around me while I was stationary and I didn't die lololol.


Demonbman
Okay first off, that background is terrible for a laser only contest. Lasers being additively blended, the brighter the background is, the harder it is to see the laser. Second, the difficulty of the whole script isn't on the scale of Easy, Normal, Hard, or Lunatic. It's not Extra or Phantasm. It's pretty much just cheapshot bullshit. The first attack pretty much proves my point as I died and bombed a ridiculously number of times just to get through it. The second attack doesn't seem to have any visible way to get past the giant rotating lasers and meanwhile merlin shoots godspeed lasers randomly about. You probably should've thought things through a bit more.


GBZero
A pretty short entry and pretty simple one too. All I had to do was move right and left over and over. Meanwhile the boss goes back and forth all over the place, making it impossible for my straight shooting MarisaA to get a good shot at him. Not too much to say here.


Nimble
Holy crap that's hard. But your stuff is always hard as hell for me so I don't know why I was expecting anything less than that. The first attack's lasers that spawn lasers completely caught me off guard and I immediately died. However the idea was pretty good, though probably done in a different way before. It felt familiar somehow. The second attack is actually something I can play. Another pretty good idea and executed nicely. The final attack is just all sorts of bullshit. I don't even know where to start except to ask if you can actually capture that attack yourself. Overall a good entry if not extremely difficult.


rdj522
I chuckled a little at the "Didn't quite turn out the way I wanted to..." in the description of the cards. Then I got an error stating that "null is not defined (line 10)" on Pong Laser, causing you to be disqualified. Starburst Laser is relatively easy if you just stream sideways a bit too. Hmmm, I wonder how the spellcards looked in your mind because these two aren't very exceptional.


Shockman
Hmmm, I'm not sure what I'm fighting for this entry either. Anyways, the danmaku has some pretty neat concepts, but because of the additive blending of lasers, some things were hard to see and just killed me. The first attack's purple lasers, for example, just covered up the raining red lasers, making it extremely hard to see if a red laser was about to hit me or not. The second attack is extremely simple, however. All you need to do is stream slowly left and right while making a gap to go between every so often. The laser attack's sudden change in pace surprised me, but I managed to stay alive for a while. I noticed it was pretty hard to see where the lines were sometimes and I died once or twice because of that. Not a bad entry.


Stuffman
Hahaha, joined the contest a bit too late? Looks like you only had time for the danmaku design, and no time for balance or extra touches. The first attack is pretty fun with all it's stuff flying everywhere, but it felt like something was missing. Not sure what though. The second attack scared me to death for the wave. I wasn't sure what to do and ran to the corner where the other giant lasers spawned. This second attack seemed kind of unfair too since the giant lasers pushed you down into the spawn location of the smaller ones. It got a little too close for comfort and gave me no time to react to small lasers. Or maybe my reaction time just sucks. For the third attack, the way the lasers spawn is a super cool effect, but when the danmaku starts reaching my player, I'm pretty much just cursing at the tiny spaces and dying multiple times. This probably could've been a great entry if you had more time.


Suikama
40MB? Why do you always have ridiculous file sizes for your entries?
*Judge is playing. Please wait warmly*
...What the hell just happened? Musically timed lasers... Well let's just comment on the danmaku design and ignore everything else. :V

You have a lot of generic danmaku being thrown around. Aimed lasers, laser crisscrosses, randomized spawn locations, etc. Pretty much everything is just generic except that it is timed to the music. Not perfectly because my computer never runs Danmakufu at a perfect 60 fps, but I got the idea anyway. If the images didn't make me question your mental state during its creation, I might have considered this a decent entry. But instead if just disturbs me.


Torpedo
First of all, make your zip files contain a folder with everything in it. For a few seconds, I was wondering who named their project folder Graphic and sfx. Second, shooting stuff at the player when the cut in is still on the screen is probably a bad idea. The graphics look nice and the sprite is nicely animated. The background fits the character too obviously. However, the danmaku is boring. It is extremely simple to beat just by running away as fast as you can. There isn't much to say for this attack except that it has pretty nice graphics.


MewKyuu
Oh hey an animated sprite. Your first attack is pure streaming which is pretty boring. Your second one is ALMOST pure streaming. The purple lasers tend to spawn way too close to me sometimes and make it impossible to read where the gaps are. The third attack is utter bullshit with its giant lasers. Unless you played it before, you have no idea where the giant lasers will spawn. Even when you do remember where to move, the giant lasers cover the smaller ones and makes it way too hard to see where to dodge.

Patrick Alexander
Hmmm, the danmaku is pretty generic. It also feels like that the main body of the attack can be replaced with bullets instead of lasers and it would feel almost exactly the same. The lasers near the end really don't have any point either since most people won't be moving around wildly. Not really your best work.




And now the rankings!

First Place: Iryan
Except for the first attack, the other two attacks are both mathematically impressive from a scripting point of view and fun to play from a player's point of view.

Second Place: Azure
Most graphically impressive entry, but graphics are really icing on the cake. Iryan has two fun spellcards in his entry while this one has one.

Third Place: Nimble
Despite being extremely difficult, the script had very unique ideas. At least it isn't as hard as your Dead Simple entry anyway. :V

I linked the "person on IRC" directly to your mediafire link that you posted latest. It was not his fault. Either you reuploaded the same one by accident or you still messed up somehow.

...you aren't a Yama in disguise, are you?

Well, I was judging mainly by danmaku design. If her second spellcard were as creative and fun as the maze one, she would've won hands down. And of course I'm not a Yama with the ability to judge danmaku quality at a glance and was kicked out of Higan for having too useless of a skill so I spend most of my time just looking and critiquing other people's Danmakufu scripts. Definitely not.

Well, I said the first one was my main entry and the second was just for fun. Can't argue with second place, though, considering I did this in less than a week. All the effects (cutins, bullet graphics, text, etc) are taken from my main project, not made specifically for this - I overdo effects, but not that much, heh.
Good to know mine was the prettiest, at least. I guess that counts for something, right?

There was an absolute filepath issue anyway.

It didn't work until I put the replace in the main danmakafu folder.

Oh, I must have forgot to have done it for one or two of the cards. Did you try running them individually?
I linked the "person on IRC" directly to your mediafire link that you posted latest. It was not his fault. Either you reuploaded the same one by accident or you still messed up somehow. Anyway, to attach a file to a post, you can click on the "Additional Options..." button while posting and some more things will pop up, including a field to attach files.

Why couldn't this person be a girl? It's a distinct possibility. And thank you for that tip...

I just wanna say, about the spellcard in my entry, there's a "safespot" like thing where you can just graze the fat lasers, and just tap left/right to avoid the yellow lasers.

EDIT: SUNEO!

I'll play some tonight If I've got time, Glad to hear my graphics were enjoyed lol.

Admitedly I know what you mean though, I was going left and right to dodge it most of the time but kept thinking "its more fun to try and graze inside the shatters" Maybe I should have figured a way to trap the player. I dunno, I was running out of time and didn't have anymore ideas lol.

(continuing my previous post, since I did that one in the five minutes between classes)

If her second spellcard were as creative and fun as the maze one, she would've won hands down.
So by logical extension, if the contest was just a single spellcard instead of a max of 3, I also would have won? Yay! And as for moving around too much and being hard to hit, the trick is to just ignore her and stay in the center. She spends most of the time centered in both scripts, so there's no need to follow her.

I would like to take this time to give thanks to everyone that helped me - especially Raibys who helped with the graphics and gave me support the whole time, Iddyea who lives in my head and came up with the danmaku in the first place, Manaphy who is cute and squishy and blue, and everyone in #danmakufu for helping me with everything I had problems with during the creation process.

The first thing that I noticed after the custom sprite was that the lasers weren't very pretty looking. Lasers generally look better if you just use the default Danmakufu ones or a sprite sheet specifically made for additive blending.
Huh, not sure what you mean there. The only things that I used that weren't default were the sprite and the cutin.

Quote
Anyways, moving on to the danmaku. First attack is a neat idea and pretty well executed. However, the 4 lasers that spawn on the boss that rotate seem kinda random and out of place. The second attack caught me off guard. About 5 times. Another nice idea, but it feels more full of cheap shots. At one point, the big laser the boss shot at me blocked off my escape route while one of the yellow lasers fell on me. The third attack is a super cheap shot. The glow effect gives the illusion that you can't go past them without getting killed. Then you realize this isn't true when the lasers rotate into you. When I tried again, I was cheap shotted by the sudden extending of the lasers.

I would never have thought the second one was much of a cheap shot; in fact, I was sure it was the easiest one. I... was actually afraid the third one might have been a bit cheap, but I thought the trick to it was sort of obvious. All this tells me is that I need to get some proper playtesters.

Ah well. Wasn't expecting much of this. It was interesting, either way. Congrats to the winners.

I lied. Done judging. First, my reactions, impressions, and general criticism of everyone's entries.
Demonbman
Okay first off, that background is terrible for a laser only contest. Lasers being additively blended, the brighter the background is, the harder it is to see the laser. Second, the difficulty of the whole script isn't on the scale of Easy, Normal, Hard, or Lunatic. It's not Extra or Phantasm. It's pretty much just cheapshot bullshit. The first attack pretty much proves my point as I died and bombed a ridiculously number of times just to get through it. The second attack doesn't seem to have any visible way to get past the giant rotating lasers and meanwhile merlin shoots godspeed lasers randomly about. You probably should've thought things through a bit more.
ahahaha yeash....
The way to get around the giant rotation lasers is to go through the base!
The background...well....:X I really didnt just want to use just the music sheet as a background, and I guess I thought that I've created and played the script so many times that I know what to do.
From now I I'll think in the way of the person whos played the script for the first time! That way no more Cheapshot Bullshit!

This is Iddyea, a fairy who lives in my subconscious (seriously). She talks to me in dreams and gives me small suggestions even if I'm awake. She said that she was sad because nobody believed that she was real since there was no proof, but I'm either too nice or too insane, so I do. So I started working on this contest, but I didn't know who to make the boss. When I went to bed that night, I had a dream about these patterns - so I made them.

It comes with two scripts with four difficulties each. Subconscious "Labyrinth of the Mind" is my main entry, while Dream "Multichromatic Trance" is more of an extra (though I still want it graded of course). Lunatic might be a tad much (I don't play on that difficulty yet, so it's hard to balance for it), so I suggest starting on Hard or lower. And as one more note, both patterns are semi-random, but they're always possible - you might occasionally get a really hard section, but that's part of the fun.

Iryan's "Wave Theory of Light" looks remarkably like my "Color Spray", right down to the cone... granted, mine doesn't have all that certain-death stuff outside said cone. And for some reason Wave Theory seems to have a bit more order to it...

And that last spellcard "Pythagoras Tree"... just... whoa.

Well you are already one of the better graphic/effect designers. We cannot all have all stats maxed out ( well you can but takes practise ).

I have the same thing, my math / pattern abilities are low while graphic and eye-candy things are high. We have to deal with it. orz.
Which is currently the problem I am having with my own game. I have so many ideas, but little knowledge on how to turn them into a spell card.

Most of Azure's stats seem quite high though. :V

I'd say I'm almost maxed out in the logic stat (which is closely related to the math stat but not quite the same). You tell me what behavior you want, and I can probably make it. On the other hand, my graphics/effects stat is damn close to 0.

At least, that's how I see it. If something needs trig to be done, I can figure it out given a bit of effort, but because I'm a bit OCD about not copying already existing cards, the ones I do make are rather plain. ...And that was the reason why I didn't submit an entry for the third contest.

Well, that looks amazing, but it's kind of boring to dodge, honestly.

Post by: Iryan on March 02, 2010, 04:23:53 pm
If you really want to level up faster, you need to quest more. After you've reached mid-level, the experience you gather when completing a quest chain just flat outclasses anything you would accomplish through mere grinding.

PvP helps, too, but only if you actually play to win. And don't get me started on danmakufu raiding...

Title: Re: Danmakufu Contest #4 - Laser Light Show (Results!)
Post by: Blargel on March 02, 2010, 04:40:29 pm
Once you get too high level, you run out of quests to do though and it kinda just gets boring. I don't really like the instances or raids either so I only do them every so often when I'm REALLY bored. I spend most of my time in the newbie areas helping people for no apparent reason or hanging around the main town and just chatting with people.

Also, good parties are kinda hard to get into. Either there's an established usual party that people don't want new people joining or else it'll just split the exp rewards too much, or you get a party that's just terrible and doesn't know what it's doing. I find it easier just to train on your own unless you really really need help with one of the quest objectives.

I sense a thread locking due to being wildly off topic now.

You know, I am wondering how long it takes for someone to make the obvious joke about stats and such.

Would Naut mind if I uploaded videos of the disqualified ones? Of course that Pong card had to be removed due to it not working. If he doesn't want those uploaded either by anyone, I'll respect that.

The recording also includes some stuff from ones that weren't DQ'd.


Edit: Also, Octavarium has a safespot, which is the only way I honestly see capturing it.

Some of these quests have a requirement called "creativity". How do I increase that stat?

Last stat joke. Creativity is a hidden stat that you can't see on your status screen. Although it is influenced by your Design stat and your level, it is actually randomized on a day by day basis. If your Creativity appears to be too low on one day for the quest, you can try again the next day.

You'll want to redownload this, then, I made a dire yet easily fix-able mistake when de-absoluting the shot replace. This has been corrected.

Actually, don't: For some reason this causes everything to become invisible

Stuffman you little freak, your script didn't have the ex-Rumia graphic in its folder! I make different script folders for these contests, so I was stuck fighting invisi-Rumia.  :V
Title: Re: Danmakufu Contest #4 - Laser Light Show (Results!)
Post by: Stuffman on March 04, 2010, 06:22:22 pm
The path leads to where EX Rumia is by default, you must have deleted it/renamed it/moved it.

You should always leave the default Rumia stuff in place so people can use her image if they don't want to include their own!

Post by: Prime 2.0 on March 04, 2010, 08:45:28 pm
Which of course means your script was not self-contained.

Besides, it was agreed during the first contest that people using Ex-rumia should keep the relevant images inside their own script, much like shotsheets and such.

It didn't error, doesn't matter. Not like Stuffman's script was aesthetically pleasing anyway, regarding anything but danmaku.

That logic is about the same as "I can go molest small children in public because I'm not the president anymore." :V

Non-self-contained scripts: On the same level as child molestation.

Welcome to Rika's Garage! \o/
And seeing as there are many people here who post (or have posted) not-self-contained scripts (*cough* Survival contest *cough*), you can deduce about how many people in here should statistically be child molesters.

Yeah, I know that this is flawed logic. I don't care[/i]

Nobu had flawed logic as well since I was actually comparing the logical flow of the statements: not moderators to presidents and scripts to possible child molestation.
