Had to load up the desktop app for some reason, but that was a pretty awesome play once I did.

I'd say it's acceptable. The point was to be able to see replays, and this works.

Oh hey, I didn't even know posting the replay link was an option. Neat!

There's no end date in the original description, so I'd say lets end it on Friday at midnight PST. Then it'll be the weekend when people are seeing all the entries and getting a prize

I want to get something working with qtox and a server so local coop works as online play, but that could take a fair amount of time and experimentation to get working well enough.

Fair. I mostly thought of speedruns because it allows you to compete in games that you otherwise wouldn't be able to, without the networking/server requirements needed for tournaments.

I could set up emulators and servers for games I own. If we did that, I feel like most of the speedrun options would be replaced with more tournament style competitions, based on some of the comments and votes here.

Interesting. Odysee seemed to be the promising decentralized video alternative, but I guess Vimeo's working the best for now. I'll cross it out and put Vimeo then.

Also wow, nice score.

Fair enough. We're pretty much on the honor system anyway.

[Will edit my score in here once I get it.]

16646 so far. I think I can do better though...

  1. Huh, All clear gives a lot of points.

Next competition idea:

I had a few ideas other than tetris that we could try next time:

  • pokemon nuzlocke speedrun w/ red/green/blue/yellow
  • Super Smash Bros. (Ultimate)
  • Mario Kart (8 / Deluxe)
  • Call of Duty (Modern Warfare)
  • minecraft speedrun
  • gta v speedrun
  • terraria speedrun
  • Duck Hunt

Also, I'm not sure about one week, two weeks, or a month in between competitions.

Personally, I like fast response games, like Beat Saber, Dust Force, Or Smash Bros. Though, if a story has good characters, I can get really sucked into it, and I've written stories with people and played DnD a bit.

Fair. Well, whenever the competitions happen, I'll adjust my schedule for them or for supporting them, as long as it's not 3AM or something.

I'd invest in local community, self improvement, NFTs & crypto, 3D printing and manufacturing, then tangible goods.

Local community is by far the most important, even if that's a small cluster of friends that you know is sane. Then you have a group that can take care of each other if anything happens.

I'm down. Maybe we could set up a format where even some steam games are anonymized: start up a video stream through qtox with whoever wants to show how they got to a score, then if we want, edit and post clips of that to Odysee, Rumble, BitChute, and possibly YouTube.

I'd be happy to help set up a few gaming events, even if only to figure out how to get actual secure communication.
