Old Competitions Summary

Recommended Posts

Once upon a time, on the first versions of this forum, some competitions were held. Here are some details about those competitions so they are not all lost in time. For a summary of more recent competitions, see the Chip Cup thread. The entries to the create competitions are currently not available in any combined set. (There was a set called cpcc2011.ccl that did this for the fall entries of 2011.) The old time trial levels were collected in the sets CCZoneTT.dat and cptt2011.ccl.

At the time of posting, I don't remember for sure how the overall TT points were counted (if at all), but I'll edit those in when I find out. There are some other small details that are also missing, like the original names of the sets the levels were released in. If you have any info that could be added here, please send it to me. I'll also be sure to post a summary of the best times submitted and later achieved ones, once the set CCZoneTT.dat becomes available again in updated form.

Is there any way to download these levelsets?

Not currently, but it is in the works. Some of them you can find here and there, but if you wait a bit we'll try to package a bunch together soon, or at least eventually.  B)
