CONGRATULATIONS TO /dup/ FOR THEIR G-CUP VICTORY!


Other Sports Supporter 05/05/2020 (Tue) 21:14:06 No.16
Thread for suggesting and discussing alternate sports to use for the cup. So far, ideas include: >Wrestling (WWE 2K1X) - we could even ask 8chanmania to be an integral part of /icup/ >Basketball (NBA 2K1X games, we could edit sprites for NBA JAM >Golf (has been widely suggested in the past but I do not know how it would make for an interesting game unless the game had course editors) >Tennis (virtua tennis and wii sports have both been suggested) >Racing (similar situation with Golf, it would be kind of awkward to spectate but if the game allowed for track customization it'd be pretty cool, otherwise it's always possible to get a sprite edit in games like Mk64) Thoughts, opinions, complaints?
>>1612 >>1614 We could also possibly make some interesting tracks depending on what game we choose.
>>1609 I was also thinking of Mt. Panorama for the /ausneets/, it's a good dynamic track that I believe would be reasonably interesting for non-racers due to the nearly rollercoaster-like section at the back of the mountain. I wonder what pre-existing tracks could work for the non-national boards. >>1611 >I'd be willing to help out with streaming and running this. I think that will have to be the case, as my internet is too slow to stream a decent quality video. >>1612 >With football we can make the formation, the strategy, and so on. But for racing, what is there to do? Just watch? It's worse than pron. I've only tested rFactor but mods have Talent files where you can define the AI's aggression, composure, start reaction time, etc., see >>1576
>>1623 edit: can define those traits per car
I doubt that anyone else would think that this is a good idea, but I'd love to see us try American football. I know the majority of people out there participating aren't American, but if we are just throwing out ideas, I'd enjoy that. I think that we could try to do multiple competitions in addition to just soccer, and if that is a possibility, we could try American football. Of course, if no one else finds it interesting, then just disregard this idea.
>>1809 The problem with Amefuto (sorry I just really can't shake off that name after reading Eyeshield 21) is that you'd need at least two or three threads devoted solely to explaining the game to complete newbies and Europeans. Basketball is much easier to grasp as even the more technical aspects are easier to understand. Heck, even Baseball is easier to explain away. But I would really, definitely like to see what our riggers would come up with given the chance of editing some Football game. What are some with good customization options? >multiple competitions Originally back on ye ole 8chan we wanted to make a Basketball tournament to stand out from the crowd and keep the 8chanmania as a secondary, parallel event, but the two things went their separate ways. Again, if you could give a good, comprehensive tutorial on how to edit stuff and find some guys willing to host, I'm sure we could do multiple Inter-Board tournaments.
>>1815 To be 100% honest with you, I have no idea how we could get a game to work, I'm horrendous at anything related to technology. Hell, I sometimes have trouble with unedited games. I know that I could help explain a lot of the game if anyone was willing to try it, but we would need some other people willing to edit a game to get it to work. I wish that I knew how to do it, but unfortunately, that is not one of my skills.
>>1815 >>1817 Actually, after doing some research, I found a game that might work. Key word being might, because I haven't looked too deeply into it. The possible game is Gridiron Champions, and is set to come out sometime this year. It is supposedly going to allow you to customize and recruit a full team, but I'm not sure if it would work for this kind of thing. Maybe I'm just retarded and this is nowhere near what we need, but it seems like an okay idea. Of course, we wouldn't know if it would work or not until the game comes out.
>>1815 >Amefuto I would prefer Gridiron or even Amefuto over American Football. English societies need to stop calling games where you barely kick the ball 'football'.
>>1823 I personally think that the best games to use are those you can actually mod 3d players in or have high amounts of customization to the actual players as opposed to just their jerseys. Case in point: https://invidious.snopyta.org/watch?v=QpVEQXxWVhQ
>>1840 I agree that that would be best, but I don't know about any American football games where you can do that. Of course, I seem to be in the minority in desiring an American football game, and if everyone else prefers something else, I can shut up about it.
>>1841 Madden NFL might have some modding abilities but I haven't delved too much into it for now
>>1842 That was my first thought, but Madden has pretty limited in-game customization, so I assumed that it would require some pretty heavy modding. I don't know though, it could end up being really easy.
>>1841 >>1842 >>1843 If you don't mind 8-bit, the original Tecmo Bowl has been roster edited to hell and back. Though visually I don't know much that could be done with it...
>>1868 I know that I wouldn't have any problems with 8-bit, but I imagine that most people would much rather have a more recent game than that.
Is there a cricket game compatible
If anyone wants to try their luck at NBA 2K games there's an entire forum dedicated to modding the game https://forums.nba-live.com/viewforum.php?f=107
>>97 I like this idea a lot tbhj=

>>2069 Hedgewars seems like a fun and easy one to set up. It's free and open source so modding is far simpler. Pic related: normally CPU teams can't have flags, but we can delete the code that enforces it and recompile! Cosmetic customization examples >Hats As you can see in the picture, a hat is overlayed over the character. It can cover the whole player. I can make the base player invisible if people wanted to do full body mods (I would choose to keep arms and legs) but it's easier to just not do that. >Flags Flag at the bottom. >Grave A marker placed when a player on your team dies on land. >Colors Alliance colors chosen at start of match. >Voice In-game reactions and banter from your team. >Theme If we use a randomly-generated map, this controls stuff like background music and textures. Functional customization examples >Image-based Maps Maps to play on. <However we can make more customizations ourselves >Scheme settings We can let teams choose a modifier active in their games. e.g. /lego/ has unlimited girders, /fascist/ has each team start in a section of the map instead of randomly scattered, /otter/ could have an early or faster sudden-death water rising >Arsenal Normally there are 5 bot levels, but we can probably add one for each team. We could use this to make each team's AI forget how to use the weapons, then have teams pick 8 (for example) weapons that their AI knows how to use.
Would anyone be interested in a game of baseball or basketball inspired by the concept in >>2264 >>2266? I've started to mess around with MLB 2K12 creating a sort of roster for PLW and Smug as an example.
>>2438 What kind of effort are we talking about here? Anyhow, it'd be cool to have a Little League of IBs.

>>2439 Ignore the mouse cursor, I was using ffmpeg to record the screen I've put up a roster using some of the players from both of those site's team that participated in ICUP 6 and the G-cup. Made some texture changes, mostly player portraits. I haven't done the logo changes yet but I'll probably go for the sakura and Seiga's head for it. Lastly I need to check into the modelling aspect of it, considering that this game is quite old. Going for what I've seen of the NBA counterpart for this one, the most I can try is to see if the heads can be replaced.
>>2442 This looks real freaking neato man Problem is I know next to nothing about baseball but if it works and someone feels like hosting I'm game for a game
>>2442 I agree that having teams made out of the main boards as opposed to a single team per board would make things not only much easier to edit, but also faster to setup even for the host. What IBs should be invited?

>>2442 >>2445 >Siteball World Series I'm interested.
>>2442 Thank you. I know that this effort may not be necessary, but my autism just refuses to leave at it. >>2445 >>2446 I had an idea floating around which is to combine teams who have their own bunkers into one. So this would mean a team with >/eris/ >/fascist/ >/kind/ >/otter/ all together. Would that sound good?
>>2448 >putting /eris/, /fascist/ and /kind/ in the same team Holy shit. I don't even know what sort of banter would come out of that Frankensteinian mess. Sounds fun!
>>2448 >>/fascist/ But they don't have their own bunker, do they? They're on 16chan
>>2446 a side note, but I really appreciate a lot the addition of /eris/ to the collective of the webring. they bring in so much energy and fun with anything they're involved with. >>2448 I think it's doable Julay 8moe Smug Loli Anon Cafe Sportschan /animu/'s bunker tvch sleepychan and possibly fatchan and endchan? Would those teams be enough?
>>2449 It's in line with the utter chaos of Erischan Friendly Discordian Authoritarians for Otter preservation
>>2450 Yes but they're the only ICUP team on that site afaik so they would still fall into that 'Others' team. >>2460 I mean, we have (had?) a resident natsoc, kind anons and an otter bunker thread. The prophecy speaks.
>>2460 Should we, uh, ask those boards first? also how many teams do you even need for a baseball tournament? I don't know anything about it
>>2450 Yes. As >>2476 has pointed out, they're the only board in that site that had been a member of the webring board, so I thought their inclusion could be considered. Guess I misspoke calling 16chan their own bunker, but still. >>2459 I'm still fleshing out the teams but something along those lines would be the idea. But there are a couple of teams that I need to know exactly how to approach them. For example: >sleepychan Sleepychan has two teams: /japan/ and /v/. However, /v/ is a joint effort between Sleepy and 8moe. If we include /v/'s roster, what team should go in? And to some extent this is also why I haven't included /latecomfy/ into my idea of a Cafe roster because these two boards are sharing a team too. >fatchan and endchan I haven't considered Fatchan mostly because the teams are comprised of the boards that participated in this last ICUP and the GCup. Plus, is there any active board in there that isn't the meta board? As for Endchan, there is a team. >>2477 I wouldn't ask the boards unless there's more concrete stuff consolidated, like a hostfag. >how many teams do you even need for a baseball tournament? I don't know anything about it. I'm going to be honest, I don't know much about baseball either. I'm just playing around with the game and seeing how much it can be modded.
>>2478 >However, /v/ is a joint effort between Sleepy and 8moe. never gonna happen, they hate each other thanks to a few bad apples
>>2483 Drama aside, the question still remains. And for now I'm figuring out Cafe's roster. If you guys think you have a solution to it, be my guest.

>>2485 You WILL put /lego/ on the team or else we will have no choice but to contact our associates
>>2487 Put /icup/ :^) in.
>>2485 Pardon my ignorance in all things Baseball related, as I don't know how many players go into each team, but wouldn't it be much faster to just pick the players from each board's respective wiki page? Maybe for Imageboards with very few competing boards you could just pick all their soccer players, while for those with more boards playing in the Infinity Cup you could just start from the Gold/Silver/Bronze ones and go lower and lower in terms of importance.
>>2485 >>2492 According to a very quick wiki search, 9 players are required on the pitch and up to 25 can be on the bench. With those numbers in mind, we could go on like this, let's say that all the Infinity Cup participating boards of an IB agree to play ball, i.e. for Julay we have /cow/, /sw/, /ita/ and /strek/. You could make a team like this: -Sheev Palpatine -Revan the KOTOR Mulletman -Thrawn -Kyle "Star Wars Jesus" Katarn -Miles O'Brien -William Shatner -Gul Dukat -Swolecard -Chris-chan -DSP -Wizardchan -JULAAAAAAAAY -Rita Ciano -Filone -Lupo Lucio -Dante II With the remaining players coming from the team that most represents the Imageboard, like in this case, /cow/. If one or more boards refuse/ignore the invitation, you could just remove their own players and fill the spots with representatives from the boards that agreed to participate.
>>2493 Now this is a neat idea. Fund it.

>>2492 >>2493 Guess I should've said/shown it earlier, my bad. Yes, the rosters are being made using mostly the medal players of the participant boards, as exemplified by the rosters of PLW and Smug. These two have that case of not having enough players, but in the case of Cafe I had the opposite. Cafe had 8 boards participating (not counting /fascist/, /otter/ or /latecomfy/ because it's a shared one; same case as /v/) and that meant that there were 28 people. So I went and selected medal players based on performance in either or both of the events. I hope that the /lego/ anon is happy. If there's a consensus to put /latecomfy/ into the Cafe roster I'll update it accordingly.

Apologies for the double post, my Internet fucked up there.
>>2496 What would cafe be without comfy?
>>2496 I would argue that if a board put some actual effort in their players, they should be selected over faceless goons. So characters like Aniki, Gondola or the otters should take precedence.
>>2500 Don't know what you mean by that, or who gets to decide that.
>>2500 If you mean to just put the medal players, I tested that early on, even going as far as modifying the players value in the roster. Unfortunately that crashed the game. There might be a possibility but I'm not fully certain of it. >>2499 I'll try adding /comfy/ then and see how it turns out.

>>2501 I meant it as, if a team created or used a 3d model for one of their players, especially if it's a medal player, it should be ported over with some higher priority.

>>2504 Porting is a whole other can of worms. According to what I found, the only version that works with the scripts for this game is 2.49b, a really old version. And it appears to only be able to export heads, so players like Gondola and Gondolina I have no idea what to do with them. I do want to offer a second version of the Cafe roster with /comfy/ added.
