Can I ask you one last question ? :p You say that the Cross Controller is not authorized to create the level, but the stuff of the pack (materials, objects, ...) are there allowed ? Sorry for my 3 questions ...

You may use any of the items from the Cross Controller pack, so long as your level is played only on the PS3:)

Well I just spent a good 5 hours through trials and errors trying to get the "TIMING" working properly, all that for just some visuals, sad, but I hope people can appreciate the time I spent on making that darn thing. I've decided to have my Dynamic Camera optional, as the original camera view will be on default, but you can switch on and off on the fly. Reason being, well, the dynamic camera has it's flaws, that being, any kind of HUD display you have will be distorted depending on the level of degree you angle them. As for gameplay Mechanics, it's all done, just got to make the enemies. Visuals wise, just need a few more Backgrounds and this game should be done right in time =).

You stole my level!!! Let's just say great minds think alike.

So, looks like you're quite ahead of me. That's great, then you can tell me what my future looks like (besides me failing to meet the deadline). I'm investing a lot of time in efficiency/optimalising because I'm worried about the thermo/framerate.

I like my frames like I like my women...single. I'm fine with the thermometer going up because the chick's so hot.


How bad is yours?

Oh, she's bad. Real bad.


I hope all this talk of self indulging "advanced logic skills" talk that is teetering on intimidation doesn't prevent other creators with less pronounced "logic skill" from entering. Nothing wrong with showcasing, but the tone of a few have been really off putting.

U jelly of my logic skillz, brah?
If I'm intimidating people...sweet! That's less competition to deal with. But seriously, if it makes people feel better, I'm primarily a movie maker so I'm not that experienced with gameplay.

Didn't mean to double post, but Kalawishis. That logic looks hell on the thermo, is your game that complex that it needs all that? I'm sure there's an alternative to cut all that logic by at least 75%, I'm actually very good at reading people's logic and I usually can cut it down by 80% or more, while still doing the same job and maybe even more in the process. I honestly don't see all that logic work for something that's 5 seconds long, questions comes to mind, is it worth it? I see a lot of duplicated microchips, which usually means you may have been running in circles when you could have taken a shortcut, I see it all the time in people's creation of this magnitude, even Comphermc ran in circles.

Well, what the 5 Second Signal Recorder does is record an analog signal over the course of 5 seconds on command, then replay it upon command. It records an analog signal in the same way that a microphone records sound or a camera records video.
The reason why it is so complex is because it records the signal frame by frame. Since there are 150 frames in 5 seconds, I have to have 150 Memorisers. The rest of the logic just controls when the Memorisers record, when they replay the signal, and reset.

If you can find a more efficient way of doing this-then congratulations, you've made my level a lot simpler.

Nobody needs to be intimidated here, there are great levels that rely heavily on logic and there are just as many great levels that don't. Do not be embarrassed about the size of your AND gate.

What does the 3 22 22 represents?

March 22, 2022 (or any century ending with a 22).

The number on the top represents the month.
The number in the middle represents the day.
The number on the bottom represents the year.

In the actual level, the dates change really fast when you get to that section.

Hey guys, since my level is pixelated, this is the main character for the level. We have made more, Eg: Taking step, taking damage, defeated. We still have to make NPCs though, which will be tough. My level is about chaorupption in the timeline. Err sorry, I'm not really sure how to add pictures into my posts. Haha. Maybe because I mainly post via Iphone. Hmmm...



For everyone who is curious: http://lbp.me/p/q7c94w3 The character has 3 attacks, one is a move that has cooldown and one is a potion, which can only be used once, and It says when it's your turn, then the enemy's turn, which will either attack you or your ally, then your ally attacks, either using a double attack or regular attack. Also, using the right stick, you can choose who the potion heals. Again: http://lbp.me/p/q7c94w3
Probably not as much logic as you would have expected, huh?

Well, I'm glad people are boasting, because they're also sharing progress. Makes it more fun, seeing what else is happening out there. :) And if anyone should feel intimitated, just remember the greatest logic in the world won't help a level get published before the deadline.


The reason why it is so complex is because it records the signal frame by frame. Since there are 150 frames in 5 seconds, I have to have 150 Memorisers. The rest of the logic just controls when the Memorisers record, when they replay the signal, and reset.

I do. I'm hoping to record several minutes, but I have not tested beyond 4 chips, so I have no idea how far I can take it. Still ironing out the bugs, too. :p

03-13-2013, 10:57 AM
I totally agree with you, but the bad thing is, if I even want my level to get finished, I gotta do all that logic. Besides, once I have all the battle logic done, I'm basically half completed. I did all of that in 1 day. But I do have school, which is a pain. But luckily, school holidays is on a few weeks before the deadline. I'm 80% certain that I will get mine finished. Winning is not my goal, my goal is to get it completed it in time, get good reviews, and just a few plays. Goodluck to everyone else. To who i'm up against, I do have low chances of winning. I'm not bothered. I'm just glad that this will be the best level I have published.

EDIT:

Even If I wouldn't get it finished, I would try and make a quick ending, then something that says: "The End?"

What do you mean by "I do"? Do you mean you've found a more efficient way, or that you use the same method as me?

Right now I have enough chips in my level to record 45 seconds of signal. It's entirely possible for me to record even more, but the game is already rather stressed as it is. I did some tests and, using my method, it is possible to record about a minute of signal without any serious consequences on the thermometer or lag (it took up three bars and there was almost no lag). I got to 3 minutes and 20 seconds, then the game started giving me overheating messages. Keep in mind that these tests were just me placing 5 Second Signal Recorders down so they may not be that accurate.

EDIT: Loverice if you want I can send you a copy of my 5 Second Signal Recorder so as to help you understand it and maybe make a better method.

Rogar
03-13-2013, 03:58 PM
Yes, I thought of a more efficient way. I'm only storing a new state if it is different from the previous one, using a timer to store how long the state lasts. It does become more complex, and harder to get the bugs out, because one frame of latency in the wrong place can make it misjudge a signal change.

It sounds like the amount of time the signal can be recorded is now dependent on how many times the signal changes in your method. Sadly, this wouldn't be of much use to me since I need the times to be constant. However, this is interesting; I'd like to see the logic for this, as I've actually tried to make something like the one you described, but would only record digital signals. In it, time was dependent on change.

Upon my remembering of the existence of this website, I take the opportunity to wish good luck to all participants. As a player rather than a creator, I can say that intense logic does not make a level nor does just pretty scenery. I am looking forward to try the various entries and discover where each of you creators will take me in time. Cheer!

*Sighs*
Okay guys, look. We were discussing logic. At no point in time did we act like we were better than other creators (okay, Loverice may be an exception, but that's one guy), or act like our logic was gong to win us the competition single-handedly. Why do people think we're doing that? People are saying stuff like "you guys are bordering on intimidation", or "logic does not make a level good by itself " as if we were saying the other but we weren't saying the other and you guys are talking to nobody. It's like if you started posting pics of your level and the replies were like, "Wow, are you trying to intimidate people?" or "Don't think that your visuals are going to win you the crown", and of course you're going to be confused because you were never doing either. It's starting to get a tad irritating. Not mad at you guys or anything, just a little irritated about all this.

LoVeRiCe
03-15-2013, 03:35 PM
True, Logic alone can't win, but with my experience on creating games, logic is the brain of the game, it runs pretty much everything that goes on. Who says Logic can't make beautiful sceneries? I'll prove it wrong. I apply logic to all my scenery to make it better, but mainly to interact with the gameplay mechanics. Honestly, I think the real reason as to why not too many people appreciate logic is because most creators only make platformers and they don't fully understand the work behind complex and advance logic. I think it takes far more skill to create a working logic than to make a scenery for a platformer by a mile. Cuz techincally, everyone can make a platform, but not everyone can make logic work. Now, I'm not claiming that logic is going to win this contest for me, I got mad skills in Visuals too. Combine them and you have a force to reckon with. My latest published piece is actually an announcement of the remake of my very first LBP2 game, although not much logic goes into it, but it shows you my skills in the Visuals department. It's on the back of my Earth if anyone is interested in checking it out.

Jauw
03-15-2013, 05:08 PM
@LoveRice I do not think that everyone can make beautiful scenery nor do I think everyone can make advanced logic. Scenery isn't just a bunch of stickers and decorations, it's how you combine colours with your theme along with a set of materials. Almost everyone can make lights turn on and off, but understanding HOW things work and think logically is another case.

LoVeRiCe
03-15-2013, 06:08 PM
I think a scenery should fit the theme of your world, not just spammed with random stuff as fillers. True, anyone can make a light turn off and on, but without Logicwork behind it, can you make that same light interact with your game. That is what I do, almost everything in my games is interactive with the gameplay mechanics, here and there I'll have stuff that doesn't but those are for extra scenery to make the game feel and look more alive. Yeah, I know not everyone can make Scenery or Logic, both, one of the other or neither, but if were to measure the skills and talents involve in making the two, I'd say Logic requires more of it.

But these two foundations can't hold a great game or level by themselves, we have to look at the aspects of Gameplaymechanics, Funfactor, Dept, Replay Value, Concepts, Uniqueness, Originality, Creativity and tons more. The reason why I'm so confident in this competition is because I'm focusing on all these aspects that makes a game great. People say I'm "Cocky", but they misunderstodd it for "Confidence". Without confidence I wouldn't even attempt to make ambitious games.

There is a whole lotta confidence going on here. I just have one thing to say, and that it confidence is good when it isn't misplaced. A game is nothing without gameplay mechanics that are unique and intuitive. Your game can be ugly, and static as long as it is fun.

Just putting my two cents in here.

Take it or leave it.

There is alot of egotistical people posting here.

I am not going to name any names, you know who you are.

If I were a judge here, you would be banned.

That is what I miss about creating on psp. We had a tight little community over there. People encouraged other people instead of crapping on other creators.

This contest is giving me and others a bad taste in our mouths.

This is why I don't enter contests anymore.

Just saying. :)

03-16-2013, 09:20 PM
Maybe it would be a good idea for those discussing their particular levels issues, questions or concerns to open an Ideas and Projects thread rather that ask that in here. It seems to me a contest thread is about the contest and questions concerning that contest. I think you could get much better help and advice there, besides staying within the scope of this thread.

Little updates to share how close you are or "oh noes" it all broke are not so bad as at least it is in the spirit. ..but if anyone is boasting or getting a bit wacky with each other and a bit of showing off your ego's, then to be fair and just I would have to have to read some 19 pages to figure it all out. You really don't want me doing that or else I might get a bit snarly and grumpy. RAAAAAWR!! lol

So I think I will just plop a nice reminder to play nice and treat each other with respect. mmm'kay? ..and if any of you have any particular concerns or questions about how to do that or this or that person isn't, feel free to PM me or use the handy dandy report button and fill in your concerns.

Have a nice day. :)

I for one think it should be a RULE that you must open an ideas and projects thread if you want to discuss your level. No discussion in the contest thread would be just great because it gets so cluttered in these things :/ thats just my opinion or whatever.

It is already a site rule.. Stay on topic! ;) ...which really your post really didn't do by the way. :p Thank you for agreeing with me though. I do love me some agreeable people! lol

Now back on topic... Good luck everyone with the contest! I thought about entering, but wow.. it could be a tricky one (see how it's done.. that nice little jump back on topic... almost like jumping back in time!!! WHOOOOOOAAAA!!! My head aspload!)

As for my game, haven't gotten too much progress, trying to bypass a 3D glitch(I don't normally work with glitches), which has halted me from making my stage and hindering the Visual aspect of the game. Camera-wise, it looks good, but not working the way I want it in certain areas. Logic, only a few fixes here and there and I'll be set. Still trying to perfect the combo system. The core Gameplay Mechanics is working perfectly, so I'm happy with that.

I have my buddy, Headman-1000(2 time MM PICK creator, co-created with me) working on the Sound Track, so expect some epic music. He'll also be helping me with the enemy and boss designs. Everything else in the game will be made by me.

Okay, I've tried to be nice about this, but this is getting ridiculous.

How are we being egotistical? Since when did talking about your level imply conceit? Are we so nervous about ourselves that mere mentions of confidence in one's creation makes us all believe that creators will get scared and stop creating? Who looks at a picture of a level and says, "Wow, I better quit,"? If anything, it would actually motivate people to do better since they realize they're up against something more. Wait-scratch that; any creator worth his salt would realize that mere pictures don't even scratch a level's surface and that logic isn't everything so talking about our levels wouldn't affect him in the least.

You people. Your logic is flawed; deeply, deeply flawed. With your logic, we should kick out any creator with a reputation for good levels since that's going to make people even more nervous than mere pics and updates. Mm picked? Out you go. Spotlighted a lot? Yeah, that's not really good for the competition. Here's the door. You made that great level that got a lot of good feedback? Yeah, we saw a post saying your entering made them nervous. Oh, you invested a lot of time in that level? Well, tough. Now get out of here or I'm releasing the hounds.

I think people talking about their levels here adds a bit of life to this thread. TBH, I can't even imagine how dull the PSP competitions would be if everyone just wished each other good luck.

Sorry for this rant. It just seems that people calling you egotistical and saying they'd kick you out tends to make you rather irritated.

You can talk about your levels!! Gheeesh... I just would rather detailed issues concerning a level be in an Ideas and Projects thread where all the rest of them are. Questions related to the contest about a level is fine such as, "Does this count as an illudium Q-36 explosive space modulator"

..and please drop all the personal diatribe. Take it to PM's. The contest thread should be about the freaking contest, not your personal problems with each other.

I will probably get a ton more PM's because I didn't delete the above two posts. Maybe I should, but I thought maybe I could reason with you all this way rather than face 2 more separate conversations on why I deleted posts.

On a more contest related note, I have finished the first round of testing for my entry, and the testers have all said it is extremely difficult, and I have no concrete plans on making it less difficult, though I will be balancing some aspects a bit more. Though I no longer expect the judges to all complete my game, I hope some do, and I hope everyone the best of luck with the contest.

This thread is intended to benefit everyone involved in the contest, not to focus on a few individuals. Questions and general contest discussion that brings up information which may be useful to all entrants should be the primary content here.
I'm not saying it's bad for an occasional my level is going great and good luck everyone comment to pop up, just that this isn't the place for lengthy or repeated updates on one's own work. And really, this isn't the place for discussing forum rules either.
Anyone wanting to focus a discussion on their own level or creation tactics should start a thread or blog for that. We're up to 20 pages now, and that's a lot to read through for creators who just want to keep up with the actual contest discussion.

I don't mean to discourage anyone from asking questions, however frequent. Questions and answers benefit everyone :)

After a lot of hesitation, I decided I'm contesting too :) I'm not very into logic, and at risk to be off-contest, I'll try to be as original as possible.
Because, you know, there is no rule about the size of the time-machine, or how it must "switch" between timezones. ;)

And, because I wrote that I'm entering, now it's giving me some pressure to really finish it, instead of... you know, just being lazy and say that I could have made it.

I've got one question: Do you have to be able to travel freely, so travel whenever you want,
or is it ok when you travel in a fixed order, so for example: you start in the present, go to the past, and end up in the future?
I have an idea, but it works in a fixed sequence. So when you have to be able to travel freely, I'll have to change plans...
Thanks already!

I just really really like hard games :(

Some people see a game as something that should be quick and fun. A 60 second distraction. But in my opinion, a game should be a challenging and polished thing that makes you feel like you did something worth while, and that it was an actual accomplishment to beat it. Ghouls N Ghosts, Metroid, Dark Souls. Those are real games. They are so detailed and so hard. It is WORK to play them, and you feel really good about yourself when you make it past the next level, or beat that really hard boss. They just make you feel good. I want to be that.

03-25-2013, 12:13 AM
Poorjack, if you like hard games you should try Monsterhnter... That's a very challenging game...
I played about 800 hours on it Monsterhunter freedom united and still haven't finished all quests
because its soooo hard... But you only can Play Monsterhunter 1 and 2 on Computer or PSP...
And Monsterhunter 3 and 4 (4 isn't out now) on wii or Nintendo 3DS... I haven't got a wii or

Yeah man. I have Monster Hunter 3 on my 3DS it is pretty good! Monster hunter just misses one of the 3 key beats (easy to play, hard to win, impossibly difficult to master) As it is quite hard to play. But I do like it none the less.

Okay, I've got another question. I saw that things like the TARDIS and the Delorean aren't really accepted in this challenge.
I'm not worried about the delorean as I'm not using a car, but I am a little confused about the TARDIS. I looked up some pictures of the TARDIS because I had never heard about it before, and I found out that it looks a bit like my own idea. Is it ok if it looks a bit the same, or has it got to be something completely different? I haven't started building the time machine yet, so I can still change plans right now.
thanks already!

If you didn't know what the TARDIS is, I don't think there's a problem. We want you to create something original and it sounds like you're doing that.

03-28-2013, 06:17 PM
I don't think there would be a problem if your time machine looked a little bit like the Tardis, i.e. if it was box shaped for example. Just avoid making it a blue panelled police box and I'm sure the resemblance won't be too strong. All we want is for people to come up with original ideas and not copy time machines from films or books too closely. It sounds as if any similarity in this case is accidental and I'm sure you can keep it to a minimum. :)

Contests are about so much more than trying to win DLC... in fact, that is a very small part of it... for many it's a chance to improve upon themselves and have fun in the process...

also, we give away a stylish pin too.

See, now this is why someone who has never published a thing in her life should not try and answer technical questions like that! I think I meant to say you need to delete and publish again but if I were you I'd wait for someone competent to come along and give the final verdict on that :p

@Kalawishis - We start to play levels after the publishing window has closed. This is because you can tweak your levels during the publishing window if bugs get reported etc. and we want to make sure we play the final version. The only exception to that is if Bio and I need to play levels earlier for spotlighting reasons but I don't think that will be the case this time round. :)

One week to the deadline and yet so much things to do...

For those who have never been in a contest, here is how things go:
- day one: OMG I'm so excited, I have so much ideas my level is gonna blow your minds!
- week one: there's so much things to do! Why aren't the tools better? I don't know where to start...
- week two: scrap that idea, everybody's going to do the same thing. I had a better idea but I must restart from scratch.
- week three: I shouldn't have used so much thermo just for level design. Now my bots and my logic will totally suck. Let's erase a part of the level.
- week four: Why? why???? oooh why??? *cries*
- one week before the end: I already cut a lot in my level, if I can manage my time correctly, i'll still can put a few things in it.
- two days before the end: ok, I should totally quit now, nobody will notice anyway.
- two hours before the end: THAT WORKED EARLIER! WHY DOESN'T IT WORK ANYMORE?
- deadline: this is gonna be a ok-average level.
- two hours after: Ok, I republished because I forgot the key cinematic at the beginning. Also, I should have put that, that and that.
- the day after: what are the mods doing? We should have our results by now!
- two weeks after: this was the most horrible month of my life. I'm never entering a contest again.
- one month after: cool, a new contest!

Magic Technologies is adept in many things. It is agreed, however, that the thing they are most adept in is ticking you off.

This level is like Short Skills Challenge with a temporal twist. Pretty much, everything you do is sent into the future and a sackbot mimics it. It's hard to explain, so just try it, mmkay? Oh, P.S., this level is also stupidly hard. Like, throw-your-expensive-Vita-across-the-room-and-cry-in-the-corner-hard. So there's that.

So... we only have until this Sunday?! Oh noes.

At the very least, I've got two cutscenes and a whole gameplay section left to build. Maybe I've been focusing too much on detail. So far I have a guy travelling a century ahead to find that Helium-3 mining on the moon is destroying the world.

And I really need slice n' dice to not freeze all the time. I'm building without it at the moment (thanks to the latest update), and it's slowing me down, a lot.

Keep in mind that LBP is meant for players as young as age 7. This doesn't mean that your level should cater to young kids, but the scariness should not be inappropriate for that age group.
Suspenseful is okay, just try to avoid "horror" genre ;)

Well, if it's too scary, I can make a second version, that isn't that scary... But I hope
it doesn't make negative effects to the contest crew's choose... I'll make a little levelhub before the
level, where you can choos between "very scary" and a little bit "scary" but I haven't got
enought time, so I have to take part with the very scary version... You could try the Beta of the very

As stated in the OP, no level links are allowed. I suggest you only publish one version of your level, and use the remaining time (until April 7th) to make any changes you feel are needed. Ultimately, the most important thing is the you feel satisfied with your own level.

No need to apologize for your English.
And don't worry, you are not disqualified now :)

Your official entry should have a publish date between April 1 and April 7. Your Beta level was first published on March 31, so you should delete the Beta level, then publish the finished version as a new level.

Thought about it...

:idea:

and this "entry" is disqualified...

and not even because it's someone else's work (I'd have shipped the crown to Ken Levine anyway) but rather...

because that in the context of that game, things exist over all time periods simultaneously (being both done and undone at any one moment... cause quantum physics is funny that way) and so technically there is no time travel in the conventional sense as your not jumping through time as such but rather into an alternate world with it's own separate timeline... ergo it doesn't follow the contest rules and can't be counted.

Not to brag or anything, but there is no way anyone will beat my friend's level XD
I think my friend and I have spent at least 12 hours each everyday since the contest was announced. So that's like...300 hours or more on the story/design/logic/gameplay XD And it shall be published later today. Insane logic by me and amazing sticker panel art by my friend (apparently sticker panels use up practically no thermo, so my friend made many beautiful backgrounds and other things with just stickers). The level is a platformer with boss fights and multiple areas (we had to emit and destroy entire sections dynamically to fit it all in one moon...a backup of the level is 1636KB). It has absolutely no lag even in multiplayer too. Prepare to be amazed

well, I think these are very good conditions to make a good level, but you should know one thing:

But I rhink thetime, you spand to make your level isn't really that influence... It's the knoweledge and the LOVE, you put in the level, and not the
lenght of your level.... But thet's only my opinion, maby the Crown-conrest crew doesn't think so about that...

But when I played your level, I thought, there are abillities to beat it... (that doesn't mean, that your level is bad... But everything can be bet by sth else) What ever, good luck :)



The Meaning of my long text is: You never should say, that thete is no way to beat your level (or the level of you and your buddy)
because it's a little bit embrassing, when someone else.won the LBPC10... Do you know what I mean?

Sorry...you are right. Please ignore the stuff I said, and please don't judge my friend because of what I said. It's her level, not mine, and she would never say anything like what I said. I hope I didn't hurt her chances of winning or anything...We both put a lot of love into our level, and we had a lot of fun making it too. We laughed many times every time something broke, and she always asked me to make something impossible....but we never gave up and I just felt proud of what we made. We already have crowns because of the lbp store glitch a few weeks ago, but I wanted my friend to have a "real" crown. The level is for her, not me so...please ignore the stupid things I said earlier.

I started building a level for this contest about a month ago but alas, I haven't been able/bothered to work on it much :p I didn't post anything here because I have a habit of saying I'm going to make a level or do something else LBP-related, and then I never finish it :cry:
I could possibly finish it before the deadline but it wouldn't be very good. But I do really like the time travel theme of this contest and I quite like the way I've (started to) implement it. So I think instead of rushing everything and trying to confine it all to a single level, I'll forget about the contest and see if I can work it into more of a series, I think I can get much closer to my original ideas that way anyway ;)

Good luck to everyone who is entering anyway, I'll try to get round to playing the entries soon :D

Lol, no! That's absolutely fine. We need the LBPC10 tag to help us find the levels on lbp.me but it really doesn't matter what kind of brackets you use as long as they don't prevent the level being picked up by lbp.me's somewhat quirky search engine. (Yours are fine btw) :)

Hello, here is my level - Don't Play with Time - http://lbp.me/v/jy54sq

Doc has something to show you - A TIME MACHINE!. Whats more he wants you to test it. Grab your time machine and change time whenever and wherever you want. It's mostly puzzle level but contain some platformer moments too.

ABOUT BUGS - READ PLEASE:
- You may met some bug, forgive me about that, thermometer is full so i can't fix more, i did as much as i could.
- BOX BUG - if you are in part with boxes and box in present doesn't spawn try to GRAB and move box in past again. Grabing it is most important thing, it will fix it for sure.
- DYING BUG - Don't bother if you die while changing time zone, it may happend sometimes becouse of collision with things in other time zone (like wall or box), interface (red cross) will tell you about places in which you can't change time but i could miss some places so don't bother, I placed a lot of checkpoints.

Don't worry too much though. You've posted your entry here and so it's definitely in the contest. Also after the deadline we'll be posting an lbp.me list on Hubbie's profile with all the known entries on it. That way anyone wanting to play through all the entries can easliy queue them. We'll make sure your entry and white_rabbit_0's are on that list even if they don't show up in the normal search. :)

At first I intended to do a puzzle game based on time, but time constraints changed it into a "save the sackbots with a time shift", which kind of improved it I believe.

Now I can play all these others great levels!

Edit: Forgot to say it's a 1P level only.

Hey everyone,
one last question. I don't think I'm going to make it, but am I allowed to publish my level with a "to be continued"? that would allow me to take part in the contest, and finish the level and delete the many bugs after the winner has been chosen(If that is allowed).

shropshirelass
04-07-2013, 08:28 PM
That sounds absolutely fine. Just publish what you have now for the contest and by all means refine and add to it after the contest has finished. :)

wolfbrother117
04-07-2013, 08:51 PM
Thanks for your help, but sadly I think there are too much bugs left... I'll publish it later as a normal level, but publishing it now would be completely useless. The target isn't really clear for people who would play it, and things just don't work fine. And even if it would have worked, I wouldn't have had a chance, because the pictures of other levels I saw here were way better, LOL.
I think I'll just take part in the next contest, and start in time then, instead of two weeks before the deadline (that's why I actually already expected not to be in time...).
Good luck to all of you who are taking part of the contest!

We wanted to put even more stuff in our level and make it even more detailed and fun but we ran out of time. We must have found a glitch for the thermo because it's nowhere near overheating and not laggy at all even with 4 players too. So after the contest we might refine and add to our level too.

Here's my entry

The level is a sackbot controlled level, that gives you the ability to switch between time zones on the go (L1) The different time zones will have different changes in the environment and of course the gameplay.

The background story is quite simple: Your father is an infamous scientist, that have been researching Time travel in 40 years. Finally he have been able to create that final part that should let you travel through time. You play as his son and he asks you to test the suit in a Transistor Factory with lots of dangerous laser hazards and electric circuit boards. Your mission is to shut down the main transistor in the East Wing. To get there you'll need to time travel numerous of time to disable hazards and conveyor belts.

I would like to thank @Seku (PSN: Sock_Pasta_Rock) for his incredible logic mind. He have made almost all the Sackbot logic and the basic time zone switch. I really wish that he would publish the level with me, but unfortunately he is quite busy. I would also like to thank @Tevlon1 for his original soundtrack for my level.

I've used a lot of time on the level design and artistic details, so I really hope that you'll enjoy the level.

As for your changes, well, I'll leave that to whoever you Pm'd just to keep the decision tidy, but I'm sure they'll agree to a title and description change as long as you ask nicely =)

Hello Everybody!
I've been following this competition since it started and finally managed to publish my entry yesterday. There were some last minute modifications to try and squash some of the outstanding bugs that were occurring when your messing around with the time space continuum. There was also an intermittent glitch that was only discovered after publishing but the problem couldn't be replicated before the deadline to try and fix it. So I wouldn't say it is perfect but I've tried to make failing fun too so if something does go obviously wrong you should be able to keep playing and see how many points you can score!
Hope you enjoy!

the judges care not for who has the most plays, hearts and likes. This is a factor that does NOT come into play. A level may get 82,000 plays and 81,998 hearts but if that other level that only got 4 plays and zero hearts is better, then it's better and it wins. Plays don't matter here.

Well in this case it doesn't really matter. The contest crew won't judge on the number of plays or hearts. Not to be rude or anything, but your level is not the most popular - Kapum's Dragon Chase level is a bit more popular, even though it's on LBPVita ;)

the judges care not for who has the most plays, hearts and likes. This is a factor that does NOT come into play. A level may get 82,000 plays and 81,998 hearts but if that other level that only got 4 plays and zero hearts is better, then it's better and it wins. Plays don't matter here.

XD What I wanted to say is....the main thing we were thinking about when making our level is...we want everyone to enjoy and have fun. I never understood why people make 1p only levels because then you can't enjoy with your friends. We want people to keep coming back with their friends and for a totally differently experience than what you'd expect in LBP.

When I started this venture into time travel, I was really inspired to get a level out for this contest. But, I had trouble coming up with a story I liked and my level hadn't even been started and there was a week left. By the time I started it was already Thursday. When I began making my level, I lost steam and inspiration and decided to drop out. But! There is always another contest(Hopefully) and I look forward to it! I will definitely play some of the entries! Thanks again for the contest!

Well, some levels need to be experienced on a deeper level. Like my entry; it's hard and requires precision, and a group of four would give up on the easy levels. There are also story levels and it's hard to get into them when you're in a group.


I am surprised more people did foresee this, i reckon some creators may be kicking themselves for not entering a vita level.
1 in 5... like those odds!

I would be certain to win if cakito123 didn't ruin my evil plan. He's Brazilian, so if he wins instead of me I hope he gets attacked by piranhas or swept away by the Amazon or eaten by a kangaroo or something.

Jumping to conclusions while they are judging isn't exactly being fair. How do you know they might have gotten so far and decided to eat dinner, the phone rang or they wanted to go to bed and start over in the morning? I've done that many times, especially a level that is a bit harder or requires more concentration than I have at the moment.

I am sure they will do their best to complete every level unless there is the remote chance a level is broken. However to be VERY fair.... I can't speak for the contest team either. I just don't want you mad over something that you assume to be correct.

just to reiterate what jdubs said. Give the judges a break too. Judging has barely started. Don't forget that the judges have lives too.

ForgottenEnigma
04-09-2013, 01:44 AM
There isn't actually any proof that a level hasn't been completed by a judge... myself, for instance, will always just back out of a level just before the scoreboard so I don't have to watch the scoring animations... it counts my play through on lbp.me and in game as incomplete even though I saw the entire level.

Moral of the story, don't jump to conclusions and trust me when I say we will judge it fairly.

Meh...I don't like creating on the vita. It doesn't have online create, and I have absolutely no artistic ability whatsoever and I'm horrible at ideas so I can't create alone. I'm only good at logic, so I need a good artist bossing me around telling me what their ideas are (like my friend XD and she's japanese so....sharing ideas together was a challenge because of language but lots of fun too)

I didn't finish your level earlier this evening but I promise you it was not because I was being mean or didn't like it.

I was having problems getting through a section with 3 bouncepads near the end of the level and as I was playing with someone else at the time, I thought it was fairest to your level and to the other person to stop playing and return later to finish on my own, when I would be able to concentrate better. I did that, and in fact I did it before I came back onto LBPC and saw your visitor message.

I really appreciate what all the contestants must going through at the moment. It must be nerve wracking having to watch judges play your level and wondering what they're thinking. We honestly will do our very best to treat each level fairly though and it's best not to read too much into our playing habits. :)

While not part of the contest crew, I can say that sometimes during spotlights, I may 'quit' a stage and come back later.

I always try to get to the end of a stage, but you have to keep in mind that there is a long queue of stages to play. Sometimes a stage is just waaaaay harder than I can deal with at that time, especially knowing that there is another 10 stages to play.

I may quit, go play everything else I can, and then have another crack at the harder ones.

Lots of time in the voting grid for Spotlights someone will leave a note like 'got stuck at X, stage not broken, just tricky... will revisit'

If it is too hard then, yeah... someone normally gets through it, and then gives tips for the others that got stuck.

Lol, well that's very sweet of you but "awesome" may not be quite the right word. I can't speak for the other judges but I'm not sure the world is ready for the sight of me trying to play a level... :P

I'm not sure our kind of contest lends itself to live streaming in the same way as the CC and I think thespacemonkey and shadowriver would be the only ones with the technical knowhow to pull it off. We are hoping that thespacemonkey will be able to produce a video of the winning entry, however. Although i think he muttered something about it having to be a level he could actually complete... lol.

I think a short trailer of the winning level would be more then enought... Maby some short scenes, that show gameplay and landscape
of the diffrent tinezones... But a gameplay video could be too much, because it shows the whole level...
But that's the decision of the LBPC Contest Crew and nobodey forces them to make any video...

PS: If the Crew decides to make a video and there are any problems... Ask me, I know someone, who could help...

Just a quick update.

The judges have all submitted their votes and it's now down to Shadowriver to crunch the numbers. I have to say it's going to be an extremely close race, especially on the PS3 side. Even having seen all the votes, I have no idea which level is going to win without Shadowriver working his magic (yes, maths is magic).

Not to add to your nail biting or anything... :p

crunching numbers? is it possible to hear how these levels are scored while we wait? like is it setup in categories and a point system? or dose each judge just pick their favorite level? just curious to how this works.

Jauw
04-17-2013, 03:35 PM
I remember in LittleBigLands Contest Crew we gave the level a score from 0-5 we had 3 categories: (Depending on contest requirements/theme)

-Story
-Character
-Background

So if a level should get top points it would be 15. I don't know how LBPC's Contest Crew are doing this though ;)

we do something similar only different. What we do is this.
we write down the name of the level on a piece of paper and then put all the pieces of paper into a bucket. Then we each don ceremonial costumes and one by one draw out a level from the bucket. Next we have 10 seconds to choose a weapon and then we are thrown into an arena where we have to fight it out for whatever level we chose from the bucket. So say I draw a level out, then I am fighting for that level to win. We do this until there is only one level left. Good luck All!
