    um...i have a good idea for a challenge. the longest combo ever.

    no cascade
    reg pieces
    program: um....i'm open to suggestions...i was thinking lockjaw or heboris. i'm thinking whatever has a splash screen of how much of a combo you've done, so we can take jpegs instead of having to youtube a bunch of 5 sec clips. but if you guys have a suggestion. caus ei can't think of a program off the top of my head that does that other then like that facebook tetris.

    Hebo mini displays active combo below the playing field, as far as I know.

    So uh, what defines a combo? Do singles count?

    Double or higher starts a combo, single sustains an ongoing combo but does not add to it.

    That's only if we're going by TGM combos though.

    Tetris Party combos, on the other hand, are the number of consecutive pieces that clear at least one line, minus 1.
  7. I have an 8 combo (TGM style) in the Tamaya trial in Heboris. But by the guideline, every piece that clears a line after the first contributes to a combo... in which case you could say I'm also at 8.

  9. Heh. No I didn't look that long. I knew it was in the 10/12 video, and that he won IMMEDIATELY afterwords, so I just let the entire video load, and dragged the slider until I saw the Blink got a star meaning he won. Then I watched what caused the win to see if it was the 11 combo.

    Though yeah, I wish I had known it was also on youtube in better quality and easier to find, heh.
  10. It was more like 12. I'm not sure, and I definitely was using garbage to my advantage. A better challenge would be without garbage.

    yeah, it can't have garbage.

    and weither it should be 7 piece +1, or TGM-reroll .... um ... i don't care? just one of the 2 i guess.

    there's probably a actual maxinum you can get cause of the well height. and i consider combos just how many whatevers without skipping a piece. hold doens't count as skipping a piece. but whatever you guys decide. i want it to be fair, and viable for everybody

    OOORRRRr....just to stop the confusion, how many T-spin doubles in a row, skpping pieces counts, but how many t-spin doubles you can without getting any single - heboris

    if we use texmaster, i've already done a 40+ combo [​IMG]

    If it was TGM style combos, using 7 bag would be optimal if you were to go for inverted funnels. Otherwise, with guideline style combos, any randomizer would do because you're aiming to make scattered singles.

    No way, that's impossible! Maybe if you abused garbage rising somehow...

    the reason i think we should do t-spin dubs, is cause using a piece doesn't reset you're count, just getting any non- t spin does. that way you are only limited to your style of placing pieces, not the well height or width. other wise all the underminute-40liners will just keep going on forever, and not just have a max-out

    OOHHHh, and i think we should do heboris, cause in the replay you can see how many t-spin's you get. and you are D/Q'd if you have any other breaks other then tspin doubles, or [4, herboris, tetriseseses] you have.

    also ...should the amount of heboris's you get be a fraction of how many t-spin dubs you get? you have to break it down after like 4 or 5 or something, cause you need to step up 1 space everytime you make a tspin.

    kapat, it seems like you are referring to the back-to-back bonus rather than combos.

    yeah...mainly cause i dind't want there to simply be just a "max" cause of well height.

    i just wanted to throw it out there to see if hte better tetris players thought that was more fair, unstead of every tom dick and harry hitting the max of ....11 or whatever it is.
