New page: Playing at 4:46 EEST by Abula
After five (!!) years working the Playing
page is finally ready! Ok, it's not anything very special but still quite a nice packet of levels and replays. Playing page is an attempt to list all different kind of tricks and bike controlling types. It was a very ambitious project but I think we have succeed quite well. Multi-playing, IRL playing, Belma playing have own tactics and they are missing but maybe in one day...
First we called it as Moposchool and mainly me and BarTek
were developing it. Also Rigger and ciph were around with their ideas. Later when Paprika was released I wanted to have a page for playing like there are for designing levels, cheating etc. Moposchool was a good start and we started to convert it to the new format. zebra
entered the project when BarTek was becoming inactive. Also Luther
have helped us quite much. The levels were tested by my mother (totally amateur), my ex-roommate (ok player, Carju) and MP
who is a world class professional so all the skill levels were presented. Thanks to all people who were making this happen.
Briefly the idea of the consept is to go through the different levels and to beat Target
times to be sure you handle the trick or controlling type. You can use the replays and the texts as help. Dream
times are there for more challenging playing. We don't host any competition yet. First you might want to beat the all Easy
level and then Medium
If you think something is missing don't hesitate to drop a line. Maybe even make a level or replay for us? Also the Skill
levels can be argued. Is some level easy eventhough we marked it as hard? The general information texts are still missing and we appreciate help in that.

More patches from milagros at 17:59 EET by zworqy
- ElmaConf12wide: with this version of the config tool for Elma 1.2 you can get widscreen resolutions
- Elma Online Beta: with this you can play the multiplayer option of Elma online, read the readme file for installation instructions
Development work can be followed and participated in the New versions
forum of Mopolauta. Hopefully all these new things will be added to just one patch, which could be called Elma 1.3.
Ballelma at 17:54 EET by zworqy
milagros made a patch for playing Elma levels online. Unlike the eol patch, you cannot play multiplayer, because everyone has their own apples to pick. In Ballelma, you play alone, but you can see everyone else on the same level as you. This creates a whole new experience when for example playing battles. Or your team can invent styles
together in a cup event.
Players are identifiable by different shirts, that are defined by BMP images. The download contains quite a few images, but more can be downloaded from Viper_KillerGuy
Please note that Ballelma is still in early development, it is rather stable now but crashes may occur. There are installation instructions in the bs9_readme.txt file. For now, I am running the only, temporary server so far (IP 22.214.171.124, may change).
If you are connecting through a router and can't see the other players, you have to make sure that NAT (network address translation) is off, or enable port forwarding. More help
If you have a Windows and/or Linux server that can be used as a more reliable alternative, please contact milagros. The server program is very small and uses very little memory and CPU, the only thing that needs to be fairly good is the Internet connection.

#ballelma in IRCnet is the irc channel for the competition.

Records #96 at 0:12 EET by Abula
Not too often I mark Records update High priority but this time it's certainly worth it: John
passed TorInge! The leader of the total times competition was changed.
Total times competition is the most famous Elma contest and the gloriest status a player can reach in the Elasto Mania. It's a place where only the very greatest players have been: Champi0N, KingKong, pajen, zyntifox, dz, Zweq, TorInge and now John! Big grats to him.
This is the day of John! He also won some GAAs (SveinR will post results later).
