Well done all of you and a big congratulations to the top 3, impressive. I'm glad I made it into the top 10 with all this fierce competition around.

However, there's one thing which has kept me wondering ever since I started going for the hiscore. Where's the 2nd treasure chest?! All the times I've completed the level and I have no idea where it could be. :<

At the end of that really long bridge which drops you down to the switch that activates the swinging things. ;)

i thought this was the trickiest part. if you can combo all those bubbles without missing any from dropping off that springy elevator ball then i think u could get over 50k. i always had it broke into two combos

Yeah I always went to fast and fell or too slow and only got the combo 3/4 of the way.

Yeah I always went to fast and fell or too slow and only got the combo 3/4 of the way.

0.0 i comboed that entire thing, well nearly, i got a 13x on that and sometimes i can get a 14x, i would have had a score yesterday like the top one, I just died at the very end, and would have at least taken second place, yeah it sucks, i thought i was in the lead and was going to win that gold status, and then move on to elite pretty soon after that, well i have been a contributing member, so i am just going for elite at the moment, but hey, i will get there sooner or later right? Oh and Doctor Ramatool, You need to tell us what you did, each section at a time, i mean i can tell you guys but i think his will be more valuable and interesting. I am sure i will be like OHHH through most of it, :p, but man there must have been another area that i missed, or something, Was there a secret area besides the 8 that were there?

Cheers!


EDIT: soooo umm... Linque, when are the prizes being put in to effect? Do i need to contact CC?

i think if you can combo that entire section and be agressive on the climbs in the race you should be able to get the top score. i found on the climbs you can hide on the edge of those flippers as the blocks passes if there is no fire on the wall. i would usuually go up three sections at a time when the block passed. did you die jumping over to chest 8 area? i still felt i could of had better score when i stopped but at moment Doctor Ramatool hadnt hit his 49000 so i stopped becuase i had high score, but was supprised to get it becuase i had some mistakes on that run

Yeah, that was pretty much it... that run I had gotten 5x on the first chest,
5x on the set of bubbles after it, 5x on the sponge ride, all the bubbles on second chest.

Died from falling into the gas.... I knew it was there lol... no idea what I was thinking.

Fourth chest got all the bubbles.

The set of bubbles after the race starts, combod those all up.

Now this part is where it all counts....I really think its all luck when the race starts and where the flaming block thats moving up and down is at.... the run I got this it was perfect.. it literally just went up.. making it able to jump up the whole thing only having to dodge it once.... which I made sure it was a nook with the score bubbles in it. Made sure I grabbed that fifth chest... and moved right to all the score bubbles... picking them up as slow as possible to keep the timer stopped and to try to time it with the block.... if it had just gone up I would pick them up fast... if it was about to come down I went slow.. usually worked well... if the timings perfect you can make it up to the spot to chest 5 without having to dodge it.

After that score was like 46k... got chest 6..... messed up.. but being able to use try again without losing points makes that not matter heh....

On that next part... It did bug for me once... I hit the button and accidently let go once... hit the button again and it didnt reset... it stayed in the same spot ><... wasnt that run obviously... but it was the previous and I had about the same score at that point. I never do that great on this part with the score bubbles... but got a couple 2x.

Got chest 7... but did not risk going for chest 8 when I saw it was 49,006 heh, just dropped down and that was it....

It really just takes time to learn the jumping in this game... and once youve learned the jumps in this map it was pretty easy to rack the points up... wasnt until I discovered that 4th chest till I figured it was all based on speed in the flaming block area.

So yeah, I was really tempted to go for that 8th chest... sure it wouldve been 50k heh.

WOW 0.0 you perfected that thing i most of the time mess up, on the beginning and only come out with a 4x, and again another 4x on the next set, most of the time a 5x on the ride on the way down, ussual get a 13x on the bubble bridge going to the second chest (sometimes can muster 14x) and then what usually gets me is the really stupid thing, that swing ride and i am so far to the right that when the last one comes i can not go any higher up and i get singed and die >_>, then i can get to the top no problem, just stay kinda to the left all the way up, i can get all of the bubbles on the way down, for the race i can sometimes get the bubbles on the bridge counted up, but for the rising parts now there is another place i can screw it all up, first of all i did not know you can jump 2 on each jump, i thought you could only do that when jumping to the left set, so i would go up 2 to the left and up one on the right. (i guess that is where i went wrong and could have gotten a way higher score). then i can usually get a nice one on the second set seeing as there is that shortcut as a hole in the wall (hehe), and i can sometimes come out of the race with like 9000 left on the timer, and come out as a total (on my best run it was 42 near 43 grand, but i messed up at and died on something at the end on something i never died on before >_>) so that final ride the only problem you could have is luck, because if those giant round circles are in the wrong places you can not get throught them, but i can get a few 2x through there too. the end is the easy part, just go in the middle wait for it and follow the spiked plank thingy, after that run up the blocks and just ignore the last one and jump over it in to the safe hole, wait for the thing to pass and then go for the next hole, after that i would run to the wheel you would just have to jump while you were on the edge and like 3 quarters of the way to the top, when you land you want to get all of the bubbles and make a kind of tap jump so you can land right and continue the combo (can only do this sometimes), after you have those bubbles you can make for the last jump (really easy actually) just start from the begginning, and do the highest jump you can do just before the edge, and pull back on the stick right after you go over the spikes and you will land perfectly everytime (only messed up on this jump twice) so that is what i do

it seems to me that you have further perfected some of the things i tried to perfect and thought i did good job, +rep for you my friend, you deserved this prize ^.^ :p

Cheers!

Okay, I managed to verify that gevurah22 is indeed in tenth place, so the final scores are complete.

I'll be in touch with ConfusedCartman about the prizes. As for the next LBPC Level Competition, I'm sure there'll be other authors in addition to myself who will make levels suitable for competitions. My next level is going to be based on my concept of Cruel Contraptions (http://linque.pp.fi/LBP/contraptions.jpg), and will most probably feature a similar competition. It's going to be reworked a bit, as I'm going to add paintinator sections and it will be playable with just a single player, as opposed to the layout in the concept drawing.

Looks very cool. The only thing I'd be worried about is the restrictions of the camera angle. :/

Regarding the layout of the level and getting a high score, this is the one thing I'm a bit ashamed at:


Now this part is where it all counts....I really think its all luck when the race starts and where the flaming block thats moving up and down is at....

I should've realized that I needed to have one of those spinning stars that signal the movement of the block all the way at the race starting gate. This way luck would have no part of the level. Also, I should've had some signal showing where the first flaming ball is at at the switch below Chest #2, so that you can pull the switch exactly when you want compared to the flaming balls.

will you be making the next level or do we just ask cc to "approve" them for a contest

Linque
01-13-2009, 01:05 AM
I'll be making a level sometime in the future, but if it's the next one or if someone else holds a competition before it remains to be seen. Anyone is free to make a competition level if they so wish - I'm sure it'll be approved if it's suitable enough!
