Topic: Kongregate / Jack of All Trades (Dedertee Wins!)

Congratulations to dederteee, Ferrish and asher1111!

As promised here are my own solutions to my manufactoria levels. The first level was meant to be doable with some experience in the game but challenging to optimize. The second level was meant to be hard to even complete.

Strategy: Add yellow if 3 reds in a row are found, add green if 2 blues in a row are found. Afterwards check if only yellows or greens are present.

Strategy: Iteratively reduce the number of blues in a row and reds in a row by 1 throughout the whole string. If this results in the string only containing blues, we discard the string because it means there were more blues in a row than reds, and vice versa for reds. If all reds and all blues are removed this way, we accept the string. Green is used to mark the end of an iteration, yellow is used as a separator.

Great job dederteee! Glad to see at least one of you was able to solve both levels. I’ll share my own solutions tomorrow should anyone be interested.

Thanks for the competition. I’m still learning about myself, some things I can’t put into words without trailing on way too long. I’m glad I got to play against Best, Ben, and many other competitors I haven’t before.

Here’s what happened from my view. I could only hold a candle to the twitch reactions of some of the other players. I know, I’m a strategist at heart, but some of the rounds I barely scraped by and I’m sure I’ll improve a lot by the time I feel ready again.

Congratulations winners and especially AU for your second tournament win. :) I too feel like my strength is in strategy rather than reaction time; sadly there weren’t many strategic games this time around.

Well done finalists, I clearly didn’t put enough time/effort into this round. Thanks for the tourney, I probably won’t join another one for a while until I can really put the time in.

Oh fuck this shit. I’m not doing this. I’ll just not send you my video and you can make it so I don’t pass the semifinals, so Ben can make it.

No way, you got me, take your spot in the finals. so I don’t have to play these games ;)

By the way this means no glitching through 1/3rd of the game or anything

:(

Why does a video proof requirement mean no use of glitches? There are a couple interesting glitches in this game and I think we should be allowed to use them. Most speedruns outside of Kong make heavy use of glitches. (much more than is possible in this game)

Edit: All is good, Shawn was just starting rumors. ;)

Decent run, could be a lot better. Spent 20 seconds dying in the stupidest ways possible on level 6.

I assume my Warning Forgone score wasn’t counted as I wasn’t on the final screen of the game, but my score doesn’t seem to register with Kong unless I reload the browser. I don’t understand why it shouldn’t count, as you can look it up on the Kongregate high scores board, and my screenshot shows that I achieved it during the competition.

You can refresh the scores without reloading the browser by changing the mode (Score/Best stage) or going to a different page of the high scores. If that doesn’t work for some reason you can post two separate screenshots.

I’m not going to be around by the end of the round so I’m going to post the last round tomorrow. My IRL had a messed up week and I had some problems in finding the right moment to organize properly these last two rounds so instead of giving two random games, I’ll try to use the ones I planned to, but I’ll need a bit more time. Round 8’s deadline is not extended.
