Exclamation GLaDOS@Home Megathread - PLAY "DEFENSE GRID"

PLAY DEFENCE GRID!!

UPDATE - STEAM GROUP




THE MAIN BAR IS AN AVERAGE OF ALL OTHER BARS.
ALSO, THE RATE AT WHICH COMPUTATIONS ARE COMPLETED IS PROPORTIONAL TO THE TOTAL POTATO COUNT.

THUS; COMPLETE "EASIER" GAMES FIRST, AND MAKE SURE YOU HAVE ALL POTATOES IN YOUR GAMES. WE WILL THEN HAVE MORE POTATOES TO COMPLETE HARDER GAMES FASTER.

Now, it's my theory that TIME SPENT IN A GAME INCREASES BOTH THE TOP BAR AND THE GAME'S INDIVIDUAL BAR.

The individual Bars probably indicate the MAXIMUM computation power we can get out of each game; i.e. when a bar fills, playing that game is pointless.

However, some games (less popular ones) give MORE power. Playing Toki Tori and TWEOTW will give more power than playing Killing Floor, but they might not be good to idle 24/7.

Please, if you have ANY POTATO GAME, GET IN AND PLAY IT. We also have the mysterious "Challenge Status", so look up the ARG Wiki (when it comes back up) for the guides to getting potatoes in your game of choice.


Tweet with the hashtag
#potatofoolsday

Get people to come here, or just to directly play Potato Games for now.

I agree, co-op is a theme here, a test to see if it's bar by bar or all at once should help understand what exactly is needed.

Unfortunately, the numbers don't seem to be updating yet.

What would have made this better is if valve made the games way lower because of this event...so here hoping for lower price drops

I believe so, I have a potato by my name for completing Audiosurf challenge and I don't have the sack.

Multiple launches

You can run several instances of Defense Grid at the same time on one PC... not sure whether that will be counted for more than 1 CPU though.
