Most of you guys know of the randomized CLOT. Krzychu did a JS script to let an individual player create a randomized bonus game. It was hard coded to two templates as it required a lot of manual input to specify all the bonuses on the template and the range of the bonus values.

I thought of extending it further to make it work for any template! All you need to provide is a sample game on the template which you wish to randomize. You need to be a member for this to work.


Prerequisites

Install the following based on your browser

Tampermonkey in Chrome
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/tampermonkey/dhdgffkkebhmkfjojejmpbldmpobfkfo?hl=en

Greasemonkey in Firefox
https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/greasemonkey/



Download the script from here

https://greasyfork.org/en/scripts/14620-randomized-bonus



How it works:

- Once you've installed the plugin, go to any player's profile(if you go to your own, it creates a game with open seat).
- You will see a text box and a button(as shown below)
- Provide a sample game on the template you wish to play. It must be at least a 1 turn game. Also ensure that the template exists(and is not "custom")
- A new game will be created with the same settings, but with randomized bonuses!
- This only works for 1v1.
- Both players must be at least level 45(unlocks the ability to override bonuses)
- For a quick test, to see if you're set up correctly, try a game ID from the 1v1 ladder. for ex - 9971041




If something didn't work as you expect, or the randomization is incorrect let me know.

So get gaming! And please share interesting games :D

From what i can see it should also be ladder or coin game (or other game created via API)

Any game you were in should also work.

Also... This is AWESOME! Love the idea Motd! :D

It would be nice to get everything integrated into 1 package eventually, that's something we'll have to work on I think :)

Just read the member part... that's a bit disappointing. I was looking forward to using this extension.

Oh, you right Fleece, i always thought you can't read game details of 'normal' game via API

So long as it's not a practise game you should be able to see the API from any game you're in :)

Ryzys, I agree, there may not be a way around this for a while though, only members can have access to the API :/

The API read-out seems to have been changed recently, so watch out for changes, games which have voted to end don't seem to always show up, I don't think any of the format has changed, but it might just be worth bearing in mind :)

I guess Fizzer is either stream-lining it or preparing for a bigger change to the API...

One of the changes: The read out now says "The format of this data feed may change in the future." where it used to say the types of games the API could call. Honestly, I love Fizzer sometimes, he really makes me laugh ^_^

Awesome script, MoTD!

This actually gives players more incentive to buy membership now I think.

This definitely needs more support! Whoever can do, should make it notable. This script is at the moment the only reason beside ad-free play to buy a membership!

Haha, true :P

I think the idea is to put everything into 1 program, I really like this random game generator idea, shame it needs to be members only, but I think we can add it into knyte's real-time match-up program too, in fact, I don't see why we can't use the same interface even, this needs some more work, I have already created a clan thread about this, but I might bump it again ;)

I'm pretty sure knyte's program doesn't require the API, but I know that the random generator does need it, but perhaps with some of the work me and wct are doing with tournament generators (for the WGL) we may perhaps be able to combine all three to allow players to create random games with any player, we can certainly try! :)

"It was hard coded to two templates as it required a lot of manual input to specify all the bonuses on the template and the range of the bonus values."

I still dont get why it isnt possible to make 2 kind of reinforcement cards (for example) but its possible to make things like that.

Furthermore noone really want "randomnized bonuses". There are other things the game really need.

I'm gonna try this out with my Greece LLFD template, but I am going to, in turn, make it n-1, because big bonuses would kill on this.

I disagree, it adds a major strategic element to the game. You see, with 0%SR, not random warlords, and no randomized bonuses, the game becomes a mix of chess and Rock Paper Scissors. The more random factors (to a degree) makes the game more strategic.

I bet like half the community dies not really play strategic templates. Then the forums are cluttered with OT stuff, so this will get buried
