  3. AJS's Supercool Judging System!
  5. * My focus is on fun factor, fairness, and challenge of the danmaku. Aesthetics will be a MINOR component to reward going the extra mile or punish bad design choices.
  6. * I will score your entry based on the difficulty that is most "playable" for me (typically somewhere around Normal/Hard) while still being fun and fair
  7. ** I will not factor in how well your difficulty settings are balanced, however. That'd just kinda complicate things.
  8. ** It would still be to your benefit to make balanced difficulties though--or at least more than one--so I can find a difficulty most suited to me for scoring
  10. My scoring system will be as such:
  11. >0 -- Unplayable (i.e. broken, extremely buggy, etc.)
  12. >1 -- Terrible/No effort
  13. >2 -- Bad
  14. >3 -- Needs work
  15. >4 -- Has potential
  16. >5 -- Average
  17. >6 -- Okay
  18. >7 -- Decent
  19. >8 -- Good
  20. >9 -- VERY good
  21. >10 -- One of the best things I've seen
  23. -Stage portion (if you have one): X/10
  24. -Each nonspell (midboss included): X/10
  25. -Each spell card (midboss included): X/10
  26. *All scores will then be averaged, then multiplied by 2 to give a final score of XX.XX/20.00
  27. *Aesthetic bonus
  28. (May be applied to individual pattern scores for making especially pretty/eye-sore attacks, or to overall score for general script aesthetics):
  29. *You will receive neither a penalty nor bonus for making a decent to look at script that doesn't stand out. I don't want to tip things in the favor of advanced scripters too much.
  30. -Score bonus for going above and beyond to make something beautiful: +4% if applied to individual attack score; +2% if applied to overall script score
  31. -Score penalty for making poor aesthetic choices that make certain things hard to see or look at: -4% if applied to individual attack score; -2% if applied to overall script score
  33. I will also do my best to provide commentary on every aspect of your script throughout my judging, pointing out things you did right and things you could
  34. improve on. I wouldn't call myself an expert, but these comments will just be my honest opinions and advice on what you could do for future scripts, or if you
  35. wanted to improve your contest entry script after the contest.
  37. ***DISCLAIMER: Please don't get hurt if I give your script bad/mediocre scores. I try to be as strict and objective as possible when scoring, so even scripts that I personally liked or thought
  38. were pretty decent may still get "meh" scores from me. I try not to sugarcoat things in the hopes that you can improve, and so long as you're willing to listen to advice, I have nothing but
  39. respect for you. Also, I'm just really really picky... So please bear with me ^^; **

  45. Difficulty judged: N/A
  47. Nonspell 1: 5/10
  48. *Fairly rudimentary pattern, is very easy to dodge for the most part
  49. *I would be careful with how much you let RNG decide the angles of those triangle shots, because I've gotten walled a couple times
  51. Spell 1 (Bullet Sign "Shifting Shot"): 6/10
  52. *Pretty pattern, and fairly interesting to dodge
  53. *It would've been nice if there were a bit more variety though
  55. Nonspell 2: 6/10
  56. *Also a simple pattern, but the faster triangles make dodging more interesting
  57. *I haven't encountered too many issues with the RNG here. Still, for the future I would recommend making some patterns with semi-randomness, rather than basically giving a direction and saying "fire somewhere in that general area"
  59. Spell 2 (Bullet Sign "Skip Shot"): 4/10
  60. *Not a bad concept, but the lack of pattern variety and Seiran staying still make the pattern very repetitive and stale
  61. *I can pretty much just park myself in a spot at the bottom of the screen and only move a little when a bullet is about to directly hit me
  63. Nonspell 3: 4/10
  64. *Even though it's just a simple streaming pattern, the triangles make the dodging a bit more interesting
  65. *If you had supplemented the triangles with another pattern, or perhaps changed things up a bit, this could be very fun
  67. Spell 3 (Lunar Ops "Hallucinogenic Poison Bullet"): 5/10
  68. *Not a bad concept, though I wish you had done more with it. With only a simple bullet pattern, dodging this attack gets repetitive fairly fast
  70. Nonspell 4: 5/10
  71. *Not bad, but I feel it could've been better if the dark blue bullets were a bit denser, perhaps even faster? And perhaps widen up the gaps in the aqua bullets to compensate.
  72. *Because as-is, you're pretty much just sitting in the lanes and dodging a few dark blue bullets that occasionally head your way
  74. Spell 4 (Lunar Ops "Lunarian Defense Unit"): 6/10
  75. *Decently fun to dodge, but again, rather repetitive as dodging is just reduced to sidestepping the triangles and avoiding the rest of the fairly simple danmaku
  77. Spell 5 ("Warfare from the Alternate Dimension"): 7/10
  78. *Despite being a streaming spell, having to avoid and plan for the large triangles is quite fun while having to manage streaming the lasers
  81. Average Score: 48/90 = 53.33%
  83. FINAL SCORE: 10.67/20
  85. Final Comments:
  86. -Your patterns were pretty solid, but the level of difficulty felt very underwhelming.
  87. -For future reference, I would recommend making alternate difficulties so that higher-level players don't get bored
