One and a half month left until it's December again and therefore time to do the next OHB Advent Calender. (Advent Calendar 2018 here!)

I could make a random list of formats again but it might be a better idea to ask, if someone wants a specific format (and on which day i should host the related OHB) to max out the number of participants.

The idea is to host an OHB every day around 10pm CET from Dec 1 to Dec 24, every day with a different format and mostly christmas/winter-related bit packs. There are 67 formats on BotB atm, we will do 24 of them!
Unlike last year, there will be a small reward for the BotBr with [most gold medals / highest average score / most participations / something like that], maybe 560 boons.

Voting period for each OHB could be until the next one starts so that we can get the highest number of voters possible.

Pls give me some Format (+ date) suggestions and more ideas in general, if you have some.

all n00bz :D/

List of every OHB:

Day 1: mariopaint
Day 2: snibbetracker
Day 3: deflemask
Day 4: draw
Day 5: midi
Day 6: aym
Day 7: sexmodit
Day 8: nsf+
Day 9: ted
Day 10: tia
Day 11: sap
Day 12: hes
Day 13: svg
Day 14: pcx801
Day 15: allgear
Day 16: bytebeat1k
Day 17: adlib
Day 18: zxbeep
Day 19: renoise
Day 20: sms
Day 21: spc
Day 22: html
Day 23: ahx
Day 24: mod24k

spc would be cool (preferably later in the advent calendar so i'll have a higher chance of being there to participate but that's just me.)

adlib, renoise, bytebeat, svg and html/css (or html5)
these are some of my format suggestions

kinda sucks that december is exam time for me but I think hostering these formats later in december would be good (I still don't know how everything is going to go but I'll try my best to make it!)

if you are going to use these formats and need bitpacks then I'm also willing to help hehe

Nice to have this Xmas event, Kleeder. I hope I have enough time this year to take part in at least some of the battles.

The formats I can do are all the NSFs (classic, normal and +), 0cc, Mario Pants normal or extended and, maybe, maybe MIDI (though I'm a little rusty and idk if I can write anything decent in an hour).

I may participate in an OHB involving the visual formats, but that's far from being my specialty.

As of now, I don't know yet what days/time would be better for me. Just do as your heart feels, Kleed, you're a good hoster.

thanks for all the suggestions :D/
the schedule is almost complete, but if anyone here still wants a format to be in, tell me in the next 7 days and i'll see what i can do c:

im still trying to figure out how to calculate the "winner" aka who's getting the prize of 560 boons as a christmas present.
(update soon, suggestions are welcome)

next up is bitpack-creation. if anyone here already has some bitpack ideas (either for the formats mentioned above or a general theme idea) feel free to tell me here or via discord pm (TimoKleeder#0056)
it doesnt have to be christmas-related all the time (i guess that would be boring 24 days in a row, right?)

@dippy @argarak i guess i need help (aka a samplepack) for spc / renoise
(this is a reminder for myself so that i dont forget to pm you lol)

ahh, time zones always ruining the fun. do you think we could vary the time certain days, just to be more accommodating some of the western time zones? i'm EST (which isn't that bad, admittedly) and i'm sure me and some PST folks could benefit from a later one every so often too.

@Sapphire Sunsets

im very sorry :(
i dont think i'll be able to vary the battle time very much, since i need to sleep and work and uhhh.. all that stuff. + its december so a lot of family activity as well. a fixed schedule is important in this case.

would be cool if there was an option to host 1-day-battles so that timezones doesnt matter, but botb isn't there yet.

the best i could do is delaying the start up to one hour if its necessary.
sorry, maybe next year or at weekends at least ._.

oh and voting will be for ~23 hours, so at least you can vote on the entries.
now that i think about it, i could give small rewards for people who voted on everything as well, maybe 100 boons for every user or something like that

New OHB every day until Dec 24 !
Voting Periods are ~23 hours until the next OHB starts, so get your votes on everyone!!
I'll provide a renderpack (zip-file containing the mp3-renders) in the OHB-comments, so watch out for the link if you don't wanna install 3248957 different players and tools :D/


First of all: Criticists! If you vote on every entry (except your own) on every OHB (and only then!!) i'll give you 100 boons on Dec 25!
It doesn't matter if you're not the only one who voted on everything!
Everyone is getting 100 boons! g0g0g0g0 VOTING!
Example: If you voted on every OHB but missed one entry (which is not by you) on one day, you don't get boons. If you voted on every entry, you get boons. Simple

There will be a special reward (560 boons) for the most active participant! This one was tricky, but I hope it works. The winner will be calculated with the following formular: [Average Score] - [Number of days without participation]
Example: If your average score is 35.000 because you only submitted to one OHB and got a perfect all7 vote, your final score will be 35-23 (12), because you missed 23 OHBs. If your average score is 22.465 and you missed only one OHB, your final score will be 21.465
BotBr with the highest final score wins.

Since noone had a better idea, this is how it works this year. Now have fun and everything. and don't forget to VOTE!!

(i just realized it's cheaper if i create a new thread instead of bumping this one lmao)

the starting time has been changed to 11pm CET (one hour later) from now on!

edit / another update: i actually think its better to use a similar calculation to participants for criticist boon payout. formular is: 100 - [number of missed ohbs divided by 10]
example: you missed 1 ohb, you get 90 boons. you missed 10 ohbs, you get 0 boons

edit 2: not a feature this year, but i got the idea to give 5 boons for every correct author guess (or maybe only 1 boon? idk)
guesses could be sent to me via discord or irc pn. something like that.
2020-kleeder will remember this hopefully!

Thanks a lot, Kleeder.

It was an excellent work with the organization of this event, not to mention the renders, which were a godsend (which extends my thanks to Argarak and any other user implicated in rendering).
