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?
>>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.
>>1809 >American football too many players, need 11 players for the offense and another separate 11 players for defense plus all the specialty positions for kicking. It would be better just to play rugby because there are only 15 players on the field and no specialty positions just for kicking
>>2595 Can you put models in those? >>2599 Do you know what rugby game can be used?

>>2710 Looks cool, but >no /otter/ or /islam/ players?
>>2712 >/otter/ By the time I started working on it the otters had moved to their own bunker. That's why they aren't there. >/islam/ There are 3 players in the roster. See >>2506. As for why they don't appear in this particular game, RNG that's why.
>>2711 This is really fucking cool, anon. Any way we can help you out? Also those clothing textures look comfy af
>>2714 So far I only need to find portraits for some of the players on all of the 3 teams so far, and also go and try to see how custom models work for this game. Maybe something else that I haven't touched still, but if you have any other questions go ahead.
Quick question: If I couldn't find a way to make custom models work, would you guys be still on board with this game?
>>2716 Sure, so long as the shirts are as garish as possible
>>2717 He said "Couldn't," anon. >>2716 I really wouldn't mind if you kept going ahead with it regardless. If you want a bit of a workaround, move the rosters to the All-Star teams. Those uniforms are consistently ugly year-in year-out.
>>2718 I'll continue on with the game, then. >move the rosters to the All-Star teams I need to look if there's an option for that because as far as I'm aware, the only category separating teams is by affiliates. As in, the game has a one big list and the All-Stars team is counted as such.
>>2722 Yeah, it would basically just pull a team from each half of the league. You can spread players out a bit that way, and pick the best of the best. And give them the shittiest shirts you can think of.
>>2726 Sorry if I'm not getting your point across, but do you mean the game picking players from different teams and putting them into the All-Star team?
>>2731 Yeah that's how the all-star teams work.
>>2735 From what I've seen, the game has a duplicate entry for the players in the All-Stars/Greatest teams. I want to check if any of the players from any of the teams created is in there but I want to finish the rest of the rosters first.

Here's the roster for the upcoming Julay team.
>>2745 Great! Can hardly wait for an exhibition match.
>>2745 Gonna love to see it. Did you perhaps make some webm to share with us so that we can see what the games will look like?
>>2765 I'll try and get OBS working within this week.
>>2765 >>2773 I tried messing around with OBS but all I got was either high quality but very choppy or less choppy but less quality. Serves me right for using a 6-year-old shit laptop.
>>2785 Have you tried running it windowed? Very interested in seeing how this goes.
>>2785 The game does not offer an option to run it windowed, but I can try and test windowing programs. In the meantime, I'll be trying to use one of the decent-ish recordings and make some clips so you can see how it looks in action.
