LD26 game rating skirmish

Posted by
May 5th, 2013 5:45 am

Hello, LD community!

This is my first post out there, albeit not my first participation, as I’m in LD since the april of 2012.

As we all see, activity dramatically raised here since the last LD and I think it will keep like that. Looking at infographics for LD  and seeing how the time to rate every game in LD dropped to some 5 minutes (assuming 4 hours per day), I was surprised by the fact, and also remembered that there is an actual problem for getting ratings for every game in LD. Last time, even my own game didn’t get enough (but that’s more because I didn’t actually care and didn’t rate other games as well — had no time back then). So yesterday I thought about ways to make the rating of games easier anyhow, and here’s what I came up with.

A simple web crawler to gather all the download links for every game.

If you want just the download links to mass download the bandwidth away, you can get them already:

LD26 all Links.zip

LD26 filtered direct Links.zip – explanation of those is many screens downwards.

So, here are the… Platforms?

[Unstable, but Better Level Design Version] Web
[Web][/stextbox]

So, “technically”, LD is going as far as making games for a thousand of platforms, including (but totally not limited to) YouTube, Twitter, Video, Kongregate, “48h Compo Version” (I never knew LD has own customized hardware or software for the compo), “All” (A game for ALL platforms? Would be wonderful!), “AtariAge” and even “(low resolution)”. By the way, there’s also an actual Commodore 64 game.

Seriously, I didn’t think that so many people went creative and wrote something instead of the default Windows/Linux/OSX/Web/Source types. Of course, if the game is intended to run in Chrome, it’s important, so no offense there, and if you’ve “accidentally a DeviantArt”, that’s OK, and “Jar” is still comprehensive enough (but that’s for me), and then we have a platform named “Download”, which simply transcends the whole concept of specifying the platforms, and 203 variants of Windows platform, whether it’s being 32-bit, or 64-bit, and/or also works on Wii, and/or is in a ZIP file, and/or works in Wine – everything goes fine! There’s even a “Game” platform. Not bad, and I thought I was playing movies!

I don’t want to insult anyone, but I just want to point out the main idea. Platform is a platform, and system requirements (OpenGL 3.0, XNA, etc, disk space also goes here) are exactly that. Probably LD could use a separate field for that, but it’s clearly up to LD administration. Then, to eliminate the differently named links for different versions, there should be a separate field for the version, where you could write whatever you wish: “revision 2”, “V3.3”, “for AZERTY keyboards”, “And then we had a nice pizza”, “post-compo”, “low resolution”, “with potatoes” and stuff.

So far, I’ve extracted the links, and then filtered all the similar variants to their actual platform. You’re welcome to put those direct links to your mass downloader software to get every game of LD26 which had a direct link:

LD26 filtered direct Links.zip

Those are as of 5th May of 2013, something around 10AM in GMT0.

By “direct link” I mean that it doesn’t link to some page where you have to go through the “Download” button or something like that. I thought it would be like that, but that didn’t come true. “Direct links” here just mean the links as they were in the LD game submission page. For other links, see the full lists here:

LD26 all Links.zip

But I don’t really think that many people will rate at least as many games as there are direct links. And let’s hope that every game at every direct link can be identified by the contents of what’s there.

Have a good time!

    Real nice work here!

    2000 games is beyond human capacity to rate. Maybe LD should start split judgment in tiers (2 or 3) where only top rating go to next. This is would bring more chance to real good games but maybe worse the situation of entries that receive too few ratings.

      That’s more about searching for a True Winner, while we all know that the winner of LD is… everyone who made a game. It still doesn’t speed up the initial “sufficient” rating of all the games. Maybe judging should take a month… or two, if we end up with 5000+ games next time.

    Hah! Now I know that my platform names are in fact the actual silliest. See if you can find them!

    Good work and good luck.

      Not really, there are many more weird ones. I’d never guess, so I’ve searched. You’ve made Justice, and it didn’t make it to the filtered direct links, but you’ve got a lot of ratings so far, so I don’t think you’re at a disadvantage there.

      Thanks, good luck to you too.

    To be fair, the entry form says “links” not “platforms,” and that’s exactly what people are doing. If you want a platform field, that should be separate from links and searchable.

      Oh. My bad, somehow I got carried away by my own idea, thanks for the note. Although, the default values of the link names are still four OSs and “Source”, and entitling the link as “Download” without info about what system is needed to run it, is rather unreasonable. Obviously, your links at LD#26 were meaningful, and your game made it to the filtered results.

      Still, the gathered download links remain useful.

      What do you mean here by “searchable”?
