How do levels work?

Tue Sep 05, 2017 5:21 pm

I've always wondered and I can't find anything through a google search.

When you finish a round or match and end up with: -, - -, + or ++

Are these each worth one "point" and it takes X amount of points to reach the next level?

Thanks!

I don't know how many points it takes to level up, but I do know not all "+"'s or "-"'s are created equal. A + against people 10 levels higher than you will be worth more than a + against people 5 levels higher than you.

I am actually curious about the formula for leveling, +'s, and -'s aswell. It seems random at times, even back on the Konami severs.

Agreed, the equation doesn't seem to be simple.

Yesterday, after a round i got "+" and leveled up.
Next round, I got "++".
Next round, I got "+".
Then I got "--" and leveled down. That's confusing.

Maybe finishing top three the or last place gives different amounts of points?

Anyway, GHz has access to the source code so he should tell us how it works. :)

The original modifications I made to the games.php page displayed the characters exp. Experience points are a numerical value, every hundred and fifty or so exp denotes a level increase or decrease (eg lvl 0: 0-149, lvl 1: 150-300, etc), or something along those lines. I don't remember the exact numbers since its been awhile since I calculated them and they're not displayed anywhere right now anyways so I'm not going to bother checking my notes or the old page code. But a + or - is something like 1-15 point change and a ++ or -- is a 16-32 point change or something similar. They're not all worth the same and it's determined by the levels of the players playing.

I'm astounded the new administration team cannot take the time to answer a question as simple as this.
I've resigned. I am no longer involved with SaveMGO.

Thank you for responding! This place seems dead sometimes. >.<

That info helps clear some things up. I've scoured Google for details but I can't find ANYTHING. I'd like some more information, but as you said, nobody is taking the time to get respond.

I even PM'ed GHz and asked him to post something here, but I may have gotten ignored.

Been really busy, sorry.
I haven't really taken a look at the leveling system, but it is exp-based. The --, -, +, ++ is all relative, they aren't worth the same.

No worries. Thanks for the reply.

I'd like to know more about this. I'm a C# person but I'm sure I could read through whatever the game is written in and figure it out. How would I access the source code I need for this?

Is there a GitHub repository?

It's in PPC64 Assembly. Takes forever to understand even the smallest details.
