This is something that I saw on the Empire Attack Forums a while ago. BASICally you all randomly vote for one member in each group and after a week or so, the person with the highest number of votes will progress to the next round. Because the number of members on this site it at least 10 times more than EAF (what is EAF? see link  And no I'm not advertising here! :p), it should be bigger and better.

Are there prizes?
Yes!
On the EAF, the winner got a custom title saying "Random Tournament Winner", but I am unable to do this, so, the winner will receive the best I can give them - A number (maybe 10-15 ) of M.S awards. Second place will receive maybe 5-10 awards, and 3rd place would receive maybe 3 awards.
There would also be a few prizes for 1/2 runners-up.

Why should I bother?
Why not? Why do you try to post to 100 before someone else posts? :P Perhaps you want to level up on the Main Site which'll mean you'll want awards. I don't know! Or maybe you just want to for uuh fun!

What do I do?
You sign up here and you'll be put into a group which will be made up of your 'opponent' players in the voting. There will be around 4 to a group.

How do I vote?
Each week, the poll will change (Is that even possible? meh). You get one chance to vote for each poll.

Sign up for your chance to win here! You'll also all receive a free thank for signing up :)

We just had a cow in our garden ^-^ We live right next to a field, and we don't have very good fences, so we occasionally get cows, and sometimes sheep paying us a visit :D. Would have got a picture, but it left quite quickly.

When I re-remembered this forum site a few months ago, I noticed i'd already posted about 50 messages (around about when I joined I think (2011 ish)). However, I hardly remember posting anything back then. Anyone know why, and also why I cannot see those messages?
Thanks in advance :)

We have now had about 30mm of the stuff falling in the past 3 days. That is a much as we get in some months! The river nearby changed from a very low (summer) level to almost flood levels overnight (yesterday). It hasn't rained today (thankfully)...just thought I'd share that...

General / Favourite aliens from film and TV
« on: May 16, 2013, 03:29 pm »
Well my preference is (10 - least, 1 - best)
The pictures don't belong to me. This is my personal opinion at the time of writing.
No 10:
ET (The Extra Terrestrial)
Though Steven Spielberg is a great director, ET is a rather helpless alien that needs help from 'primitive' Earth.


No 9:
Felis Sapiens (Red Dwarf)
The sentient species that evolved over 3 million years aboard the mining ship Red Dwarf from a cat.... :))


No 8:
GELF (Red Dwarf)
Genetically Engineered Life Form...heh heh aheh heh heh! ^-^ Red  Dwarf :))


No 7:
The Daleks (Doctor Who)
The only trouble with them is they cant go up stairs!


No 6:
The Ocampa (Star Trek)
Amazing aliens with tremendous telepathic abilities. However, they only have a life of about 9 years.


No 5:
Vulcans (Star Trek)
"That is illogical". Yup, clever, and quite funny in a way. Also made first contact with the human race in Star Trek - First Contact.


No 4:
The Doctor (Doctor Who)
Currently not as good as some of the older versions of The Doctor (like Tom Baker - he was good!), having two hearts and a machine that can travel through space and time must be great! ^-^


No 3:
Sentient Machines (The Matrix)
Though not strictly speaking an alien, but the ability to virtually turn the human race into batteries it an interesting idea.


No 2:
Alien (form Alien)
An alien that can use other's bodies to move around...good film.


No 1:
The Borg (Star Trek)
Obviously the best alien ever invented. The ability to have a 'hive' mind and adapt would be brilliant for an alien. Kinda glad they are not real though!

An assimilated Picard there


Vote and discuss. Have I missed any well known aliens from the poll?

If you're interested, here is part of it...
First, basic background information:
Setting: The Mariana Trench is the deepest part of the world's oceans, and the lowest elevation of the surface of the Earth's crust. It is currently estimated to be up to 10,971 m deep. It is located in the western Pacific Ocean, to the east of the Mariana Islands. The trench is about 2,550 kilometres long but has a mean width of only 69 kilometres. It reaches a maximum-known depth of about 10.91 kilometres (6.78 mi) at the Challenger Deep, a small slot-shaped valley in its floor, at its southern end; although, some unrepeated measurements place the deepest portion at 11.03 kilometres (6.85 mi). If Mount Everest, the highest mountain on Earth at 8,848 metres, were set in the deepest part of the Mariana Trench, there would be 2,076 metres of water left above It.!!

Year: 2106

Some main characters:
Captain – Jacob Edwards
Lieutenant – Simon Yeng
Admiral - Frederick Van-Haal
Vice Admiral - Juan López
Fleet Admiral – Mike Jones
Commander – Kurt Mann
(may have used a name generator for some of these :P)

The Arrival
It was dark: darker than the human mind could imagine. The only eyes the Sea Explorer sea ship Challenger MKI had was its sonar. Inside the ship, the lighting came from strip ultra-eco light rods and the computer consoles. “REACHING DESTINATION IN 2 MINUTES” Stated the computer. The captain, hearing this, spoke over his shoulder to the lieutenant Simon Yeng “Switch on the external lights and lets see what’s out there”
“O.K Captain” Replied Yeng. The screen was immediately filled with a faint light and what looked like a giant underwater gorge.
“DESTINATION REACHED”
“Commander Kurt” Barked the captain,
“Yes Sir?”
“Engage landing jets and sound warning to prepare for landing. I’m afraid it might be quite bumpy”
“Acknowledged”
Captain Jacob Edwards fixed his eyes on the screen. Then a thought hit him: ‘We are the first people to see this seascape in the whole world with our own eyes!’ He repeated his thought to the rest of the crew on the ship’s bridge.
“Wow! That’s a point!” Kurt Remarked.
“You’d better get used to it as you new view for the next five years”  Said the Admiral Frederick Van-Haal. “Can you remind me of your task Captain?” He continued
“Of course Admiral” he replied “Establish a scientific base in Challenger Deep in the Mariana trench the deepest trench in the world. Find new species of life, study the terrain of the trench and set up a defence base to protect the USUK Star ship base in the middle of the pacific.”
“I couldn’t have said it better myself” Exclaimed the Admiral.
“You are the best man for the job” said Vice Admiral Juan López with a hint of amazement in his Spanish accent.
There was a slight jolt and the computer said “THE SHIP HAS LANDED. PREPARE AIRLOCK AND AUTO-ROBOTS TO COMMENCE CONSTRUCTION”
“Nice landing” remarked Mann,
“Let’s do it” Shouted Yeng and Vice López.
“Very well” Replied Edwards “Activate the laser diggers”
“I’m on to it!” said Mann.
               ***********
If you were above water, you would have seen the sun sending it’s golden rays over the large expanse of the pacific ocean, but, at a depth of over 10 900 metres the only sunlight you would be able to see would be from a viewer screen. Captain Edwards missed the sunlight. He had always been above ground: In his house, outside in the fresh clean air. He had even flown a mega freighter to the Proxima Centauri system 4 times and he had hardly ever been without some sort of light whilst making those journeys. He missed the warmth of the Sun. The cold and pressure of the water pressing down on every side of him just didn’t lighten his mood. A thought that had come popping more often than he wanted over the past 5 days of creating the base swam again into his mind: ‘Why did I take this job in the first place?’ The masses of space the latest Earth ships could cover created millions of choices of things to do so why had he gone further into his home planet in the charcoal – black waters of the Pacific Ocean? His thoughts were cut open by his lieutenant calling him.
“Captain?”
“What?” He snapped.
“We have finished construction of the sea base. We need to dock and try out the technology the admirals top quality engineers have produced. I’ve heard the best engineer in the world has helped create some of the computers!”
“What… You mean… THE engineer?” Replied Edwards his anger decreasing by the second.
“That is correct sir”
“We had better get landed then to try it all out then. Buzz the intercom to get everyone to the bridge.”
“Yes Sir”
Jacob Edwards rubbed his hands together in excitement of doing the thing he enjoyed best: Playing with the latest technology....


Meh, that is all you're getting. I've realized whilst making this that I wrote this bit about 2 years ago! :o
What do y'all think?

Personal Exhibition / Well, please join this...
« on: May 12, 2013, 11:54 am »
It seems like a lot of people have created a forum, and now, so have I. This one however,  is not one just for discussions concerning this great site, it also covers (and will cover in the future) any ideas, artwork, creations or websites you have made (or found). The main aim will be to share thoughts and discuss various games though many other things are also allowed. The link is here: http://concertonyforums.createaforum.com/index.php. I might be out looking for suitable people to help run the site as well if you are interested. (I am not trying to draw people away from this site. :) )
All are welcome, but please read the rules before joining.
Also,please notify me of any problems here or on the site.
Thanks! ^-^

...for a few awards, please consider playing this game! :) When making it, I managed to crash the plugin for game making a number of times, but in order for  it to run smoothly for players, I set it at 8bit.

Have I gone blind, or has the Moderator page from the recruitment section disappeared? Did one even ever exist or was that my imagination? Pretty sure it was there yesterday... can anyone enlighten me? I guess there is probably a normal answer (such as it is my imagination or something! :P)

General / Anyone played or plays...
« on: May 11, 2013, 06:35 am »
(I guess it is ok if this goes here? meh...)

Anyone ever played MM2 (MidtownMadness 2)?
Old-ish racing and cruising game from early 2000s.

Anyone ever played Empire Attack?
Online multiplayer "point and click" game - simple but (used to be) fun.

and,
anyone ever played Frontier Elite?
Old game from the '80s (I think). Very fun game if you like that sort of thing...
Discuss :)

Game Hyping / An Interactive car!
« on: May 02, 2013, 04:22 pm »
Well, this idea came to me in a Maths lesson I should really have been paying attention to, but we have a terrible teacher for the GCSE level class ::)
Anyway, the link is here http://www.sploder.com/games/members/concertony/play/interactive-car-2/ It took around 1.5 hours to make the graphics and about another 2 hours to finish the actual game - so this is probably the most i've put into making something on the internet! :o I would appreciate comments on the page and a vote of some sort just to give me an idea on how to improve :)
Thanks

Why is this site amongst others losing my interest?
Don't ask where these questions came from...uh, yeah :blank:

A Review Application of Mine Shaft 2 by gamekid2011:
http://www.sploder.com/games/members/gamekid2011/play/mine-shaft-2-4/
Well, after re-finding my interest for this site after a few months of inactivity, I decided to search around the site looking for newer members with good creation potential. I came across this game completely by chance after spotting it on the side bar. So, as it stood out to me (for no apparent reason), I clicked the hyperlink.
   As the game started, I was confronted with a screen of skulls of various sizes and shapes. This, unfortunately distracted me making me unsure where to start or what to do, so I clicked around and pressed the arrow keys for a bit. Eventually, I noticed the small square in the top left corner which responded to my random clicking: I had found what I was looking for! And so, the game commenced!

The aim of the game is to get to the crystal without losing any of your 5 lives or without going too slowly. This presents a number of difficulties as gamekid2011 has placed some fiendish obstacles and puzzles such as rotating skulls and identical skulls that can either be safe, or force you to lose a life. Once battling through these various obstacles, you get  to a safe, but quite clever puzzle. This puzzle is a set of seemingly randomly placed red boxes that move when you push against them, however, moving them the wrong way will block off the entrance to the rest of the level. I think this is an excellent item to add to the game-play which keeps the game fresh and the player on their toes. Another clever and vital feature to the game is the ability to control more than one 'person'. This requires some thought and ideas of tactics which are vital to game like this.
However, my excitement from the first level was deadened by the next two which involved simply moving around avoiding skulls. The 4th  level (3rd level of the game) was especially bad as it involved no effort whatsoever. Finally some life was put back into the game by the next level and renewed my interest in this sequel. Could it still live up to the standards the first level set?
   The fact that you are limited to a certain number of shots in level 5 really bought in the skill and tactics that were needed in the first level.

The background to the game seemed fitting although I thought some of the music was a bit out of touch to the game, but overall, Mine Shaft 2 was brilliant to play in almost every aspect and is well worth the nomination! Improvements could be to make sure that when the level involves trying to avoid hitting the enemy, make sure that you have to move in order to survive.
And so, to recap:
Good -
The whole of the first level; the puzzles; the background; story-line; the difficulty (possible, but still hard!)
Bad -
Levels 3 and especially 4; some of the music.
Well done gamekid2011, you make better games than some (including me) and I look forward to facing your challenges, puzzles and epics in the future! :)

Game Hyping / Stairway from the Sky
« on: March 29, 2013, 08:18 am »
Hi, it's me:
Created another game which took up most of my morning!  :)
The Stairway from the Sky is (as you may have guessed) mainly based in the sky (though it does reach ground level at 1 point). It is a platform game which may be quite hard in places and should pose as a slight challenge to some (if not everyone). Hope you like it, and I would much appreciate comments to help me produce better games in the future. Good luck playing, and enjoy!  :)

« on: March 26, 2013, 03:38 pm »
Hi, its me - Concertony. Joined Sploder about 3 years back and the forums about 1 and 1/2 years ago. Since then, I rarely visited the main site or the Forums. Now, i'm back for a bit after over 4-8 months of inactivity. You'll mainly see me on the mainsite and occasionally on the forums to advertise games etc. Oh, I'm interested in feedback from some of my later games and would welcome a reviewer or knowledgeable  input from knowledgeable game makers/players ^-^.
