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 (iti_levels_r##.zip), which is found in the main thread I use.]]>
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.
Posting replays is encouraged ! ! !

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