<![CDATA[Neverforum — Contest]]> Sat, 27 Jul 2019 18:55:11 +0000 PunBB <![CDATA[Long Level Showdown]]> I have an idea for a new contest. Who can make the longest level ever in the history of Neverball. Levels must be 10+ minutes long and must contain a lot of challenges. Examples of ultra long levels include Boxes (Extreme V Level V)
and Adventure (Chmod 700 Level 20).

<![CDATA[The new levels and replays section]]> Out of curiosity: will you only be adding categories (or whatever they are called) for finished/abandoned development levelsets?

I thought of this because I will probably still be intermittently working on my levelset. I will probably make some big changes to it other than adding new levels (namely modifying existing ones), so I would have a little bit of bad feelings if people competed with replays of my levels.

P.S. However, I would not care if people replay-competed on levelsets I have attached other than the main set (, which is found in the main thread I use.

<![CDATA[one cam only no rotation challenge]]> I had an idea for a new challenge. I thought of it partially because I realized how much easier Neverball can be with camera rotation. Here are the critera:
  In trying to complete certain levels,
    *Start with one camera (I mainly have lazy cam in mind) and never switch from it.
    *Never rotate the camera.
    *Use the mouse the entire time.

Perhaps this would be interesting to try in Nevermania and Dave's Levels (excepting the angled acceleration ones of this set), since quite a few portions of these levels are probably awkward without camera rotation buttons.

I think this would be a good exercise for handling the ball in tricky movements. Example: Suppose you are rolling along a thin walkway with a sharp turn, using the mouse, and have lazy camera on. Somewhere along the line, probably at or after the turn, the camera angle would flip over, during which preventing a fallout would take skill.

Another example: To climb the spiral ramp at the beginning of Argentum 05, I tried using the mouse, lazy cam, and no cam rotations. This was greatly hindering, with the camera rotating rapidly and trying to flip over intermittently. hmm

Posting replays is encouraged ! ! !

<![CDATA[Will Nevertable ever return?]]> Since shut down last year, Nevertable no longer exists. Are there any plans to bring this back?

<![CDATA[Conditions for Most Coins - records]]> For the contribution of Most Coins - records the conditions on the Nevertable are currently described as follows:

"Most Coins: Grab the most coins as you can. Goal unlocked since the beginning. If two records have the same coin value then best one is best time."

..."Goal unlocked since the beginning" is meant as a requirement here? So even when you grab all coins in a certain level and do it in best time it won't be accepted as a Most Coins - record as long as you didn't start with an unlocked goal?

<![CDATA[Nevertable admins?]]> Do we still have any? Seems there's a bit of a backlog in the rssincoming.php feed.

<![CDATA[something to take care of]]> hi,

just stopped by at the nevertable and noticed that there's something going on that shouldn't be ignored...

according to elviz, protonspring is back in the regular contest by using the moniker "ocd" and posting illegitimate replays, and then there's protonspring telling that he has already got "ocd" on "his list of hackers" for being almost as good as elviz...

sounds ridiculous in a way - but having read the whole "accusations-thread" from back then I certainly understand where all the distrust and hatred comes from. considering that we all want to take part in a fair contest it would be important to clarify these new accusations or at least to find a good solution to this situation. right now it sucks. 

Any ideas what to do with it?

<![CDATA[How to Post Replays]]> I can't find the Upload Record (or anything with the word Upload) on the Nevertable. Can I post replays here or do I have to register or something first?

<![CDATA[Posting a Best Time Record on Hall of Fame]]> Hello,

I recently added 2 of my best time records on Hall of Fame. (One of them was on Easy Level 18, and another on Hard Level 19.)

Before uploading, I checked on Hall of Fame if my fastest time records were fast enough to qualify on Neverball Hall of Fame. Indeed, my times were better than the slowest times on the Best Records list.

Currently, my records are showing up as personal records.

I am wondering how does a record qualify to be listed on the Best Records list on Hall of Fame.

Thank you very much.

<![CDATA[Craven's Latest]]> Craven's latest replays are so obviously created at an artificial speed it is hilarious.
(Personally, I believe there are at least 8 people doing this).

It will be interesting to see what the communities does about it.

Could we PLEASE PLEASE do something to make this more difficult?

@tonnes: as the new official nevertable moderator, could you weigh
in here?

<![CDATA[Looking for new Nevertable moderators]]> I've been moderating the Nevertable for about 6 years and I've really enjoyed watching thousands of incredible replays.

Now I realize I don't have enough time to do a meticulous moderation of all new replays, which may be required sometimes.
I think having more than one moderators could help alleviate the moderation task.
Of course, moderation has to be done by trusted users, that is, regular members of our community.

If anyone is interested, just answer here and shino would be able to grant you the rights.

<![CDATA[monarch's activity on the Nevertable]]> Some members of our community have given multiple clues leading to the conclusion that monarch has been cheating by uploading falsified replays. Moreover, he has been identified as another user of the table, protonspring, who was already exposed as a cheater.
So all of his replays has been removed from the contest (set as personal), and all waiting for a validation has been deleted.

Proofs and clues include:
- We found anomalies on some of monarch's replays.
- Some of the monarch's replays were carbon copies of protonspring's ones.
- The Nevertable statistics Web application informed us both users had the exact same system configuration.
- Both users often logged in at the same time on the Nevertable and/or the Neverforum.

Some members of our community think all of his (protonspring/monarch) replays should be deleted, the account deleted and the email adresses banned. I may agree with them, but not all of us share this opinion.

<![CDATA[protonspring's replay analyzer]]> FWIW, here is the code for my replay analyzer that some have requested.  It's not much and I'm sure other have theirs, but at least maybe it will help someone who wants to do more, so maybe you guys can weed out the other cheaters sometime in the future.

It's pretty stinky C code, but I didn't have time for anything glamorous.

<![CDATA[Protonspring says goodbye]]> I guess this is farewell, since I have been removed from participating in the contest.

I have sacrificed myself in order to demonstrate the ease of hacking neverball.  I could have chosen to just stay under the radar (like many on this table) and send in a replay here and there, but that is not my nature.

Hacks aside, there have been some pretty good, and very lucky replays.  I hope at least that people get some enjoyment out of them.  Many of them hopefully will survive the wipe, and they'll be in my personal replays.

I just hope that nevertable contestants are a little more critical with the so many "god-like" replays.

Goodbye All.  It was a fun ride.
