Challenge mode
« on: August 19, 2009, 13:56:50 »
I got the idea for this game from the pit of 9000 challenges. Its basically the same premise, except not just spam.

First one player posts three challenges. One easy, one medium and one hard. The first person to complete any one of these challenges gets to post three new challenges.
Completing a challenge awards you with points, depending on how hard that challenge was.
Easy: 5 point      Can easily be completed without much effort.
Normal: 10 points      Requires some effort to complete.
Hard: 15 points      Requires a lot of effort to complete.
The points then get updated in the highscore.

Highscore

Purple Pineapple: 105
LPChip: 35
Miss Paula: 35
Limelemon: 35
Bored2death: 30
Razzorman: 20
TechnoGeek:15
smeagle: 15
minimay: 15
Shawnachu:15
bumperpower64: 15
Firecat: 10
Dataflashsabot: 5




I'll begin.

Easy: Find all of the hidden smilies.
Medium: Find out which episode of Zero Punctuation the quote in my sig is from.
Hard: Beat KnyttXH.

I guess it would be cheating for me to post the hidden smileys, right? XD

1. ˙ǝɔuǝʇuǝs uʍop ǝpısdn uɐ ƃuıʇsod ʎqǝɹǝɥ ɯɐ ı
2. "Congratulations! You did it!"
3. pffffft.

Easy: What is topic No. 5 about?
Medium: Since when does the forum have (most of) the Nifflas-themed buttons?
Hard: List at least 7 random quit messages from the niffchat (the java client)! (there are currently 9)

Topic 5 is the forum rules.
(offtopic: those quit messages are random? :O)

Easy: Calculate the square root of pi, plus 0.67.
Medium: Calculate ((0.8756465*5)-8)*2 without a calculator
Hard: Create a NES game (an actual working ROM)

I'm going to guess that "pffffft" means you didn't do it.

Data, I see a few flaws:
1: pi goes on forever. Therefore, it's square root cannot be calculated (unless you round pi off). That said, when rounded, it is: 2.44 (using the basic 3.14)
2: Creating a rom for a NES game is, I think, illegal.

Now:
((0.8756465*5)-8)*2
4 323232
o.8756465
*            5=
4.3782325 
-            8=
1      1111
-3.6217675
*             2=
-7.243535
There's your answer, with the work shown (for the most part, though basic multiplication skills aren't shown, but the carrying is.)

Easy: find the way to win on my tutorial level (reveal it in a spoiler tag)
Medium: Beat #ModArchiveStory (screenshots, please)
Hard: Beat Operator Status, XH (screenshots, please)

No, creating a ROM of a commercial NES game is illegal. Creating your own NES game, programming it yourself in raw assembly/hex editing (and releasing it in ROM format) is not. :)

Also, I beat #Modarchive Story, but I think the savegame is gone, so no screenie :(

correct.

What about "old" challenges anyways? Are they still going to be up for anyone to do if they fancy? And if so, wouldn't it be handy to collect the unfinished challenges? It'd be quite some updating work, though, I guess...

I can actually post a screenshot of these, but I'm currently not at home, so it is a bit hard right now.

Easy: Post me an image with atleast 10 houses. Note, a skyscraper is NOT a house. It has to be a house with a normal /\ kind of roof. The house doesn't have to be completelly visible, but you must be able to tell that its a house.

Medium: Name atleast 10 communities/websites where I'm registered

Hard: Find the error in the next php code:

No. You can only do the three latest challenges. It might get confusing if people start to do old challenges and all of them posts three new challenges.
It would also be pretty hard to know if a challenge has been completed or not, unless I keep a list of challenges in the OP, and I'm too lazy to do that. X)

A single equals sign is used instead of two, this assigns the variable instead of comparing it.
Correct code:


<?php
$myvar
="test";

if( 
$myvar=="nottest" )
{
echo 
"test failed.";
}
else
{
echo 
"test was succesful.";
}
?>


(I did not guess and I'm pretty certain that's right, so I'm gonna post new challenges)

Easy: What is the mouseover text on XKCD number 415?
Medium: Upload a zip file that is ~100K compressed, at least a megabyte when unzipped (but no more than 10MB, to prevent 'zip bombs') (I am reasonably certain this is possible)
Hard: Recite 15 digits of pi off of your head. (I can barely do 3 >.<)

Edit by LPChip: Just a small edit to confirm that the answer is succesfull, and well explained too. :)
