A silly little sort thing

Recommended Posts

I had a moment of spare time, so I made copy-pasted some code and made a little Blades of Avernum scenario sorter. It gives you pairs, and you pick which one you think was better, and eventually you get an itemized ranking of the best scenarios.

 

It's located here: http://blades.calref.net/misc/boasort.html

 

(uses the code from this utility, because the only sort algorithm i bother to know is php's sort() :p)

Fun, and tough to choose at times. Of course, after finishing the first time, I realized that I never once used the "I like both" button. Dunno how this impacts results.

 

The first time, I always picked "No opinion" whenever one or both scenarios were unplayed by me; the second time I always picked a played scenario over an unplayed scenario and it gave me more sensible results. Feature request: a button for "I haven't played this scenario" which disqualifies that scenario from all future questions and from rankings.

 

Also, are responses recorded?

Everything is done client-side; nothing is recorded so you'll have to copy-paste. I'll see about implementing that exclusion thing.

Ooh cool! I get Frostbite at number 1, Tales from the Tabard Inn at 2, and surprisingly, the Za-Khazi Run at 3.

OG&E and Frostbite win for me. (I know it's egotistical to vote for my own scenario, but it was a port of my favorite BoE scenario!)

 

There were a number of scenarios I weren't asked about e.g. Canopy

That's strange, canopy is definitely in the code. Did it appear in the final results, by any chance?

I was asked about Canopy, but there were several names on the final list that I never saw in the comparisons. Can't remember what they were, though.

I liked Frostbite and Canopy very much too, I'm replaying Exodus now, it's good but extremely difficult. Any chance you've played Of Good and Evil? If you've enjoyed Bahss and Canopy, I think you'll find lots to enjoy if you haven't played it yet.

 

Anyway, feel free to rate the scenarios on CSR.
