  1. Results Time! We had three entrants this month, including my own creation. The winner was a clear one, where the level in question was made up of four separate rooms each with its own clever puzzle. Congratulations to BlazingApollo! Second place goes to Ihavenoname for going with five rooms but with contents that weren't as exciting. I claim third place by default with a level that tried to bring together some of my favorite areas of various levels that fail to come together and make something all that special. Maybe the CC Zone awards are gone (at least for a bit) so instead I'll make a special award for just this competition. I don't mean for the duration or special occasion of this competition, no, I mean that the competition itself is getting the award. What's the award? It's called 'The Award for the Laziest Names of the Levels Submitted in a Competition'! (Though I have to admit that after unimpressive first impression of the level names, they have grown on me and I admit now that at least they are somewhat memorable.) I'll close off with two apologies. First, sorry for not catching the typo in the announcement post. The levels available for use as inspirations were meant to go through 2012, not stop at 2011. Secondly, apologies for not now posting the submissions for you to try. The year is slowly coming to an end and I plan on releasing the yearly collection of submissions soon, so you'll be able to play the levels from that set instead of cluttering your level set libraries with a tiny set of just three levels. -Miika The names of the submissions were One Block Super Sokoban, History Lesson, and Creative Linking. Here's a preview of the maps:
  2. Videos of the submission! I probably spent more time editing these than everyone combined will watch them, but it was fun. My favorite part is the comparison between the Lynx solutions of the first level. What's yours? And of course you have to appreciate how James didn't miss a boost on the second level in MSCC.

  4. Hi guys, it's time for a different type of competition! During the past few years I have made some levels that have not yet been released in any form. I envisioned compiling a set with 50 of them eventually. I now have 25 that can be released and figured I might as well put them together for an early taste of the set. I am now announcing a countdown for this release: it will be uploaded on Saturday May 9th at 4:00 a.m. GMT, so that's just short of three full days from when I post this message! To maximize the possible experience for you guys, I realized I could craft a competition around some of the levels. We haven't had a pure 'solve this level and win something'-type of competition that didn't care about how you solved the level, and as I have a few tough puzzles in the set, I thought I'd grasp the opportunity to do just that. I want to keep this a 'mini challenge' (which generally gives out a maximum of 5 Chip Cup points, and usually the participants are scored individually instead of being compared to each other), so that I don't give away too many Chip Cup points for something that can be seen as simply promoting one's own set (which is way down the list in my own goals with this effort). I will state the rules in more detail once the levels are available, but the basic idea is that you will be awarded 1 Chip Cup point for solving a tough level. For this Mini Challenge you must solve these levels in the set funfair0.ccl: #12 - Dodecaphobia #15 - A Slapstick Tragedy #21 - Seven Queens #25 - Five by Five #27 - Class is in Session I'm excited to soon release this thing and see if there is anyone out there who likes any of my creations Will you be up to the challenge? -Miika
  5. Results! 1. Bacorn_________ 13pts 276 + 446 = 722 1. James__________ 13pts 275 + 447 = 722 3. Ihavenoname248 10pts 270 + 442 = 712 4. M11k4__________ 8pts 266 + 429 = 695 LX 5. rubenspaans____ 7pts 262 + 413 = 675 LX Congrats to our joint winners! Bacorn also submitted a very nice solution of 467 on the bonus level. My own MS times were 276+434=710, but I chose ahead of time to only consider my Lynx times as I adjusted the design of the first level to fit my solution and end in a score that uses the full last second (i.e. a .0 or -.8); though my poor score on the second level would still have ranked me in the same spot. Thanks to all participants! I'm sadly pressed for time as I write this, so I'll upload the solutions in a few days. As a tease, I'll mention that we have three different solutions to the fourth room in Bargain Brinks that all take the same amount of time. I'll also try to start the next time trial soon, though ideally we would fix the problem of the downloads on the site first. -Miika
