BOSH OLYMPICS - APRIL COTM #27

A three part event, featuring a speed maze, a low linecount maze, and a MASSIVE booty back!

MAIN RULES:

In such a huge COTM featuring three contests, naturally there will be three sub-rule categories. For rules about a specific event, see the corresponding sub-rule.

Between events, there is a freestyle in which contestants are to make their way to the next box. Each freestyle should be less than five seconds; should it be deemed unreasonably long, that contestant will not have their freestyle shown (but in all honesty, anyone could make it to each event within three seconds).

Each event will begin on the first frame of the corresponding save of the .sol, and the start point can be moved to any point within the starting box (without touching the green border).

The final score of each contestant will be based on their performance in each area. Mathematically, scores are found via this equation:


RULES (SPEED):

Go from the box to the finish line without going offsled. Time must be under 20 seconds. Line glitching out of the maze is not allowed. Sorry. Also, the time will start on the first frame of save #2 and end when the last pixel of bosh passes and stops touching the line.

From the finish line, freestyle to event two.

RULES (LOW LINECOUNT):

Go from the box to the finish line without going offsled. Time must be under 15 lines. Line glitching out of the maze is not allowed. Sorry again. The time will start on the first frame of save #3 and end when the last pixel of bosh passes and stops touching the line.

From the finish line, freestyle to event three.

RULES (BOOTY BACK):

Get from the box to very start of the first save without going offsled (even when bosh reaches the start of save #1, he must stall and survive). Time must be under 10 seconds. Line glitching is allowed. The time will start on the first frame of save #4 and end when the last pixel of bosh passes and stops touching a line of the start box. Bosh MUST stall within the box, but the time will stop when bosh passes through the box with the intention of an on-sled stall.

I know that in the preview video, bosh dies a violent off-sled death, but I thought that adding the stall requirement would spice it up.

That's all there is to it! All entries are due Sunday, April 26th at 11:59PM! For those of you wondering why they can't have the whole month, I think that three weeks is plenty of time for an entry.

LEADERBOARD:
1. Gaoyubao
2. Pawel
3. Opal
4. Getthim
5. efraz

SOL: https://www.dropbox.com/s/aye24auz55q66bx/bootyolympicssavedLines.sol?dl=0

Any questions?

link? Also, typo in the Linecount part - "TIME must be under 20 lines"
And the freestyle is useless strategy wise, right? Because you have to restart with a new save for each event.

1. is each part a separate save?

2. what is the point of the freestyle?

3. How do you determine an overall winner/leaderboard?

great questions, thanks
@rabid squirrel wrote:1. is each part a separate save?
yep, and each save is labeled to the corresponding event
2. what is the point of the freestyle?
i intend to show each entry in one clip, so the freestyle will act as both a cool transition between events and a chance to show of some creative stuff.
3. How do you determine an overall winner/leaderboard?
the equation in my post will determine a score, high score = winner

And your screenshots are often private or otherwise the urls don't work.

Just want to remind people to please NOT:
- post screenshots, videos, etc. of your entries
- talk about your score/linecount/time
- talk about the methods you used
- stream any part of the contest (with the possible exception of the freestyle section - up to efraz)

So what is the save #1 for? Is it just freestyle to event 2? And you can move bosh anywhere in the green box for the events, correct?

The goal of event 2 isn't to get the fewest lines, but to minimize T/10+L, where T is time and L is the linecount, am I right?

^I was getting the vibe that the ratio between linecount and speed is the goal. Like, if you have to use a lot of lines to make a short time, it's worse than few lines to get a slower time.

This is correct, but I feel as though this puts far too much emphasis on the time of event two. To counteract this, I WILL BE ADJUSTING THE FORMULA. STAY TUNED.

EDIT: Here's the new formula. Not only is the time for event two less significant, but still somewhat desireable, but the perfect (impossible) score will add up to 100, as well as each event being equally relevant to your score.

Simplifies to C - ( 1.6T1 + 2.1L2 + 0.1T2 + 3.2T3 ), where C is some constant

It means that T2 is almost meaningless. I'm guessing efraz didn't remove it in order to deal with troll entries which take minutes to finish

yep

don't think too much about it. just know that, using this equation, all three events are weighted the same for the score, so do your best!

Opal just submitted one hell of an entry to snag first place! Will he reign for the remainder of the contest?

the only event you stall after is the booty back, the third event, on the #4 save. The time for event three stops when Bosh enters the box fully, but bosh must stall within the box.

Also I just got a couple more entries, but I'm not on my computer right now. Will update tomorrow.

Actually both of my PM's were just questions about the contest. No new entries.

I lost mine! I did the maze and line count and was half way through the last part when it vanished and I don't know where to or how. Oh well, I know what my scores would have been, I can make it faster. I have to start over or it would have been submitted like 3 days ago.
