    Found this on the hockey forum I post at, it's pretty cool. http://members.iinet.net.au/~pontipak/redsquare.html

    Apparently the US air force has their pilots train with it, they are supposed to go for 2 minutes or something like that. The site says 18 seconds is awesome, my personal best so far in about ten trys is 26 seconds, post your best times. :)

    I noticed that too. :meh:
     
  5. Yeah, recognizing the pattern helps. By try number 6 I was up over a minute.

    Not bad, though.

    :EDIT: Try #8 was 178 seconds. Then I got bored and stopped.

    Rock on

    Seems to be a rather poorly written program. The whole game keeps on freezing up for about a tenth of a second every now and then and my box moves. I managed about 24 seconds, but got frustrated at the lack of continuity in the box' movements. I wonder what that really tests, anyways. If it's reflexes.. well... I don't see why a game of UT2004 on a 2 player map with 10 bots wont do the trick : )

    I was expecting a ghost to come and give me a heart attack or something.
     
  8. Playing with a screwy touchpad makes getting more than 20 seconds physically impossible. So it goes.

    Bah, best i could do was 18.282 but kept getting caught around the 11 second mark...

    I'm blaming it on the fact that it's 4am...

    :bag:

    Oh yeah, and I'm sure killing a lot of people on half life 2 deathmatch is a much better test of skill... Well, I'd like to think so...
     
  10. Me too, so I stopped. I hate those things.

    I don't know what a titty attack is. Is it a secret move?
     
  13. Hmmm, I musta had a wrong calling somewhere in my life and should have been doing something involving reaction time.
    3 min 12 seconds on my second try.:cool:

    Yeah, you get the pattern down quick.

    On the other hand, I only got like 16 seconds. Someone should make a random flash one...:p
     
  15. Maybe something that trys to track you instead of just moving in a pattern....nah, the programming would be too hard.

    So are the blue blocks terrorists or democrats?

    It starts to get kinda fast at around 50 seconds, my highest was 64 after 3 tries.

    Terrorists. Democrats aren't that organized. ;)
