View Full Version : NEW CONTEST. Everyone is already involved!

5th August 2003, 02:13 AM
I will be putting up a new challenge shortly for all versions of wipeout 3, including the japanese version of the game. Everyone who has ever entered a time on the tables is already entered. I will be putting up the rules sometime this week, and the contest will probably last until the end of january. This should be a very fun challenge. Just a hint of what it's about. Everything counts.

I think some of the times on the forum are going to improve dramatically.

So... how am I doing?

Once I give you the details you will be able to figure it out. I'll only do this at the end of the contest in that it will take a bit of time to figure.

Good that it runs till January because I'm in my cramming sessions for my re-exams now :-S. I'd hate to miss this opportunity :p.

I suggest u Xclude the jap game coz:
1. no tables for that 1around here
2. it would only be Xtra points for you .. and me - I happen to have it too (and b able 2play it)

since this is only a limited amount of this version I would have no problem distributing it to people who have a modded psx and one of the regular versions of the game(like having a backup), and it's impossible to find. I am going to include it though because this contest is everything wipeout 3. People with any japanese times on the tables however need to inform me of this so I can make corrections. There are some time differences between american and japanese. More turbo scraping in american, but icarus is better on most phantom speed tracks on japanese, so I'm going to adjust one or two of my times on the tables before I start. I'm also going to check the japanese site to see if they want to compete. There will be points totals for all the versions individually and as a whole. THanks for the suggestion though. I'm going to start this on september first with the rules. Also, only a few people have all the versions anyways, so the overall points score is going to be weighted to the people with the most versions.

Sorry for the delay. I am going to start this in january due to my wedding coming up in a few weeks. It is sill going to happen. It includes all versions, all entries.

...due to my wedding coming up in a few weeks.
Hey, congratulations in advance! :P
I wish you all the best in the days and years to come.

Got married last year myself. To make it easy to remember our anniversary, we picked an easy date: February second (020202! 8) )

25th September 2003, 10:26 AM
Yeah, good for you Al, congratulations!

25th September 2003, 05:22 PM
i wonder if anyone ever picks 020229 as a way to be economically efficient. [yes, i am one of the unmarried, and for me to be able to even think of such an idea proves that i am evil. :) ]

congratulations, Al. much happiness to both of you.

Al, getting married? :o

(Getting connected on pay-per-time dial-up. See you, probably, next week ;) )

I'm started to get settled down here, so the contest is still on, thanks for being patient

26th November 2003, 12:10 AM
no problem at all, Al; we know you've been involved with more important things.
Also, right now the tables visible online are in chaos till Rob gets the new code worked out, so all times table activity is on hold

26th November 2003, 09:49 PM
oh my oh my .. so now al's got a life huh! (^______^)
