Text Based Game

UnknowVector

I come from the net ... My format, Vector.
Here is the website. You can read the full rules there. Eeal Rising is a text based (numbers based really) game. It hasn't really been tested in the wild yet, so PLEASE if you decide to play, let me know what you think.

It will automatically start when 6 players have joined, and once someone wins, it will reset itself. I'll use the time between games to work out all the constants in the math, but the game is quite playable right now, and it doesn't take a lot of effort TO play. I can't give you an estimate of how many days a game will actually take, but if you don't talk to any other players, each day shouldn't take more than a few minutes. If you do decide to talk (plot away people), it could take longer, particularly if you decide to talk about lolcats while your at it.

I can haz enterested partiz?

Edit June 2011: Its worth noting that link is long dead. This never got off the ground.

You need an auto-redirect-back when you register/sign in.

Obviously there is an oversight in my game start system, no one knows when the game will start. I have made some modifications to correct this.

Instead of starting when a set amount of players join the game, the game will now start on a specific date.

This time the game will start on July 08 2008. If my code modifications glitch, I will start the game manually, so prepare yourself to start on July 8. Hopefully you guys are still interested in playing.

I just joined it.

How often do games start?

I didn't know there was a rep limit. o.o

Anyway, I haven't hit it yet, so everyone who has joined should have gotten some from me. I wish I could see a rep log to make sure though.

UndeadDragon, this one is starting on the eighth, however, only one game will be going at once (for now at least). So the time between games is entirely dependent on how long each game lasts. Currently, a new game will start 3 days after the previous game ends. That number of course, depends on how (un)popular the game gets.

Okey I joined but, I'm not good in english so could someone explain short what you have to do? The only thing I understood was collect 10000 eeal and build offensive or defensive..

Edit: I think I got it. But when does it start?

When the game has started, the message telling you when it starts will be replaced by a line of 4 numbers. Each one tells you how much of a specific type of Eeal you will get for converting one Pure Eeal into that type of Eeal.

Say you turn 10 Pure Eeal into Fire Eeal (either offensive or defensive). If the number labeled "Fire Eeal Conversion" is 4, you will lose 10 Pure Eeal, in exchange for 40 Fire Eeal. Now say the next day, that number falls to 2. When you convert the 40 Fire Eeal back to Pure Eeal, you lose 40 Fire Eeal in exchange for 20 Pure Eeal.

I guess math is a universal language, so maybe this will be more clear:
Code:
10 Pure Eeal * 4 Fire Eeal = 40 Fire Eeal
               ___________
               1 Pure Eeal

40 Fire Eeal * 1 Pure Eeal = 20 Pure Eeal
               ___________
               2 Fire Eeal
You have two ways to win, exploit the changing conversion rate to gain 10000 Pure Eeal. Or get so much Offensive Eeal that everyone else loses all their Pure Eeal.

It starts on the eighth which is Tuesday, specifically Noon central time.

EDIT: Never try to align underscores like division signs. I doubt that will work for anyone with a non-standard font. Sorry.

EDIT EDIT: K this post is about 3 posts too late. Sorry, I got hungry halfway through and wandered off to eat some cheese.

    My grandmother just passed away, she was 95. I might be going to Florida for a week.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I have a buddy in Florida who has an extra office space for me with a computer so I can do anything so likely I will be going up there wednesday or thursday
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Let me know if there's anything I can do to help.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    thank you Ghan
  • jonas jonas:
    Sorry for your loss

  • Varine Varine:
    I'm sorry to hear that bro
  • Varine Varine:
    Not to distract but is anyone aware of any software to help visually impaired people interact with their PC?
  • Varine Varine:
    Also what's the best way to ship a PC? Should I just wrap the fuck out of it in the case or put the components in static bags and wrapped up individually?
  • Ghan Ghan:
    The GPU is the biggest danger typically.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Some of the pre-built vendors use expanding foam to fill in the case and secure the GPU. Otherwise it might be best to remove it and ship it separately.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Similar if the machine has a large tower CPU cooler installed. Those can experience huge forces and destroy the socket during shipment if they are heavy.
  • Varine Varine:
    So mainly just the heavier things that jut out? I'm planning on pulling out the SSD's too and anything that I don't have well secured. I'll probably be good leaving the motherboard and PSU screwed in there though if I bundle it up?
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Yeah, I'd expect those to be fine. It's mainly the heavy stuff that is also long/tall where dropping the case would cause it to exert a ton of force on the mount. The motherboard will be fine screwed into the board unless the case itself is somehow severely damaged.
  • Varine Varine:
    I have the original packaging for it, so I was going to just put it back in there
  • Varine Varine:
    I don't think I have the boxes for the components though and so I don't want to have a bunch of loose shit bouncing around
  • The Helper The Helper:
    damn I just read that lol
  • The Helper The Helper:
    when i read up and saw spray in foam I was like oh shit
  • The Helper The Helper:
    going to do the last controller giveaway in the NUON Dome forum because I just cannot sell them since I got them for free from a deceased NUON Legend. It is my last one from that.
