Rick Dangerous Posted September 1, 2022 Share Posted September 1, 2022 (edited) Season 16 Schedule: Welcome to season 16 of the Jaguar HSC! BASIC STRUCTURE OF THE JAGUAR HSC Rounds will last three weeks, starting and ending on Sundays. New players are welcome to join at any point! Only games with trackable scores will be played in the competition; Certain games that were a nuisance (like the scores appearing for only a split-second in Dino Dudes) have been left out completely. Season 16 begins on 9/1/2022 and will last until the end of the year (12/31/2022) PRIZES TBD---We will see what we can come up with for this round. RULES FOR PLAYERS Deadlines are firm (the rounds end at midnight, the end of the month). However, that's not to say you shouldn't still submit a score if you miss the deadline. If you submit an entry after the round is over, you will still receive ONE participation point (the same amount of points as the lowest scoring players in any given round). For special bonus rounds, no participation points will be handed out if scores are not submitted by the deadline--these rounds are intended only for those who are constantly active in the Jaguar HSC. Any control method is fine. Custom Jag controllers (rotaries), Pro Controllers, and whatever else you can find are all fine. Anything goes as long as you're actually playing the game. Emulators ARE allowed, however, compatibility is rough at best at this point in time so it may be more trouble than it's worth (trust me!). Also, be sure to follow these basic rules if you decide to use emulation as a means of participation:A.) No save states; B.) No system-enhancing features (framerate or graphic enhancements that can boost or smooth the framerate); C.) If you find a game that runs much smoother an an emulator than original hardware, either figure out how to turn the boosting off, or use real hardware. Don't abuse bugs or farm points in any game. Abusing loopholes to get huge amounts of points without much work is unfair and against the rules Since we try to go on good faith here, screenshots are not necessary. However, it is still recommended you take a snapshot to ease any sort of doubt anyone may have. This is especially true if you manage a ridiculous, unbelievable score that the average person isn't likely to attain. I personally prefer that the highest scoring players include screenshots, and I reserve the right to disqualify a high score if things seem sketchy to me. THE SCORING SYSTEMFor this Season , the method of scoring will be as following Player 1 scores 56,930; Player 2 scores 48,900; Player 3 scores 12,029; Player 4 scores 8,002;Player 5 scores 534;Player 1 receives 10 points;Player 2 receives 8 points;Player 3 receives 6 points;Player 4 receives 4 point;Player 5 receives 2 point;Player 6 receives 1 point; etc. 1 point for participationTOP scoring players this season will not receive any extra points, as opposed to other season. With how the system is setup now, everything should even itself out throughout the course of the season.THE SET SCHEDULE FOR SEASON 16 I tried to be fair this round, who says the HSC can't be egalitarian? Here were the final winners with vote totals: -Zool 2 -International Sensible Soccer -Ruiner Pinball -Stunt Car Racer -Tempest 2000 -Defender 2000 -Missile Command 3D -Breakout 2000 -Atari Karts -Power Drive Rally -Superfly DX -Super Burnout -Badlands -HoverStrike -Mr. Heli Games subject to change!GAME MODES FOR SEASON 16 To be determined at the beginning of each round.
