With the release of CC2, the competitions went on hold for a while. But why should they remain stopped? In the interest of feeling out how future CC2 competitions may go, you may submit times for this Time Trial in MS, Lynx, or CC2. To help ease back into things, I've crafted 3 relatively short levels that should all carry a fair amount of optimization depth. The levels can be downloaded here, in a zip file containing 2 .dacs and .c2g. Enjoy the levels and the return of the competitions! Technicalities copied from Miika: 1) The person with the highest combined remaining time on the three levels wins! There may be a tie in overall score. 2) You may enter in MS, Lynx or the CC2 engine, with the former being the primary rules. This means that any Lynx or CC2 solution times that exceed the best MS solution time will be considered equal to that MS time, but otherwise all the times will be compared together in one category. 3) Please send your solutions (either the tws file or avis) to my own email jbardonjr at charter dot net. Do not post your solutions or solution times or share them with others before the competition results are announced. All times will be published at the same time, and the quickest solutions will eventually be released. I will strive to respond to your message by a confirmation that your score has been recorded. 4) The levels aren't too hard to solve. Don't be afraid to send in your solutions even if you sense they aren't perfect, and simple casual solutions are also appreciated. You may enter if you solve at least one of the levels, but solving more will obviously place higher. 5) This is part of the 2015 season of the Chip Cup. Winner will be awarded 15 points, second place 12, third 10 points, and so on. If you win a competition here for the first time, you receive the "You're Winner!" award. All participants who haven't participated in a Time Trial earlier receive the "Run, Chip, Run" award. 6) Submission deadline is October 7th where you live. I will judge the submissions without warning the during the following days but will accept submissions until I do. If you need a more specific time, you can always ask. To avoid losing on time (it is a time trial after all), get your solutions in early rather than later! You can send in improvements while the competition is running, so there is no downside to sending in something you know might not be your best effort if you had forever to work on it. 7) The designers of the levels, may enter the competition, as long as they feel to not have gained any significant advantage as a result of having some advanced knowledge of the levels. 8) The levels may receive an update within the first week of the competition. This will only be done if there is some significant problem with the first versions of the levels. 9) A participant may 'freeze' their scores at some point after submitting their own solutions. They will not be able to send in any more updates after this, but they may talk about the levels and their times with other people who have frozen their entry. I will update a public list of people who have frozen their score. To close the post, have some quotes from Miika about why this is set up the way it is. [6/6/2015 5:35:20 PM] Miika: Would you mind making a couple levels for one Time Trial and maybe running it too? [6/6/2015 5:41:17 PM] Miika: I think we should stick with CC1 levels for now, at least for the Chip Cup this year. If someone makes a CC2 comp, that is ok (and cool!) but I think it won't be fair at this point for all the participants to include it in the Chip Cup. [6/6/2015 5:45:58 PM] Miika: It would probably be best for Sempteber... I figured that still allowing people to enter in CC2 under the same proviso as the Lynx ruleset has been would be a good idea.
