ZSR Marathon Scheduling
« on: June 13, 2013, 12:45:54 AM »
In order to arrange a schedule, I need to know all the runner's availability. If you don't let me know soon when you can/can't do it, I'll assume you are available for anytime and I might slot you in a bad time. Please don't let that happen, and let me know ASAP. I'll post the first draft of the schedule when people give me some times and I can get it done.

For LCT (the least importnt game but w/e) I think I will be busy for the first 6 hours of the marathon, after that any time should be ok with me. Also, if you want to have me on for the OoT challenge goal, I could do that too, and even schedule it right before/after my run if it is easier? I understand if im not wanted for that, just offering.

The OoT challenge will more likely be an open race. We plan on spotlighting a couple racers and switch it up to see what various people are doing. It should be very similar to Cosmo/Jiano's Halloween challenge, if you want an idea how it will be ran.

I have to work on Fridays, but Saturday/Sunday should be fine.
<yashichidsf> tompa should default be a mod on everything related to srl
<yashichidsf> while i'm not a big fan of modding bots, i think tompa is really well programmed

I'm set for anytime, but as it is a CDi game, I don't mind a graveyard shift run. Just give us fair notice. :)

I could do 9th or 10th from 12pm-8 or 9pm, preferably 10th.

Also, if it helps scheduling at all, you could probably cut 20 minutes off of my estimate for OoT 100%, there's no way I'll get anything worse than 5:10.

I for one think that there are no glitches in OoT. It's just gameshark codes.

RBA stands for Rare Bird Adventure. We call it that because we need to get the blue cucco in order to use it.

Hi guys,

I am in the UK so am on British Summer Time (BST) which is GMT+1. I will be working Friday - so Saturday or Sunday evening would be preferable for me, although I can be flexible on these days.

The weekly ALTTP race is Sunday 3PM EST so this could be a potential slot for it I guess... but otherwise I'm pretty much looking at Saturday or Sunday 7PM - 11PM BST.

Hope this helps!

It's here. First draft of the schedule. I'm sure there's a 100 things wrong with it. Everyone please look at it and make sure your time is ok. Also feel free to give feed back and stuff. And PLEASE check my math. I added 5 minutes between every game. Like normal, I expect to be ahead of schedule, but I'm being conservative in case the horrible happens. At the moment the current schedule has us running a few hours into Monday am, not really a big deal, tbh.

Yeah we can see it now. I'm curious about the timezone. Does it match to where you live (BST for me)? Obviously 12-4am is a big no no for me if that is the BST UK timezone.

Testrunner says that it's EST, he also said if you have a problem with the time he could possibly swap you and pokemonrocks.

I went ahead and swapped PH and ST. Makes more sense since Pok3monrock is American and Greenalink is European....

If there,s any problems with this tho, let me know.

I don't want to mess all the times up but I can't do the Friday afternoon due to class.  Although, I'm free to any time not on Friday.

So you can remove that question mark from my name I guess  :).

Updated the schedule. Times in red are new adjusted estimates. Please check it out and spread the word.

Small update to schedule again. Swapped OoS with MQ. MM run is 10 minutes shorter estimate, so basically everyone starts about 10 minutes earlier. Obviously, it'll be really easy for the marathon to go way ahead or behind schedule, so be prepared to start early/late. We'll try to filltime to wtv if we get too off, but just be ready for anything. This might be the final schedule.... unless someone speaks up with another conflict soon....
