I'm coming. Generally there's a big surge in sign ups towards the end. I think most people are either trying to finish bots before they enter them. Don't worry, yes, the Grantham event is on at the same time, but I reckon you've just got to be patient. This event looks to be a lot of fun.

It is better if people sign up and then cancel bot entries on the day than not sign up until the day (if allowed).

Besides, if Peter's coming, he'll have enough bots for everyone! :lol:

I'm all signed up now. I'm really looking forward to getting back into competing after a long break.

25 bots signed up it's a ok amount I guess. People really like to leave things to the last minute or should I say week :P

So whats the over and under of people who are just going to show up without signing up on Antlog first?

Hey Guys, just done a test for the livestream and found an issue.

The cameras i have do not have a wide enough lense to properly capture the arena. Thus would anyone be able to help me out? - i have a laptop which will be constantly attended to attach it to, and if anyone has experience with these things itd be greatly appreciated.

Similarly i dont know how to put a 2nd camera for potential commentary on. If someone knows how to do that and wants to help out itd be greatly appreciated :)

First AWS I'm gonna miss sadly; It's 8 hours there and back, and for a one day event where I haven't got any new bots to test out it's just a bit far.

Not sure exactly how these streams normally work, however the ones ive seen have an arena camera along with one on the organisers desk to call out competitors and potentially do commentary.

Guessing the other option is to show the screen through the stream.

Oh I see, can I ask what streaming software you using? I've used OBS and multi cam is possible, but I think we can get away with 1 cam on the arena.

AWS streams normally use a single camera, you don't have huge deadtime between fights to fill like most events.

Ok cool thatll be fine then - yeh if anyones got a good wide angle camera that could record the whole arena thatd be brilliant :P

Worst case scenario ill use my own, however as said - i think we may have some blind spots.

I have just been looking at the layout of the site on google maps and it seems to be different to the map at the beginning of this topic.
The road we finally turn into and presumably park on the map posted seems to be fenced off and the next one after it is marked as an exit.
It might just be that google is out of date but can you just confirm which is correct and is the parking free.
Also are you running the event using Antlog and if so have you set it up on a local machine as I have just looked at the site on line and it looks like it is something that would need to be setup in advanced.
I am not sure if any of those signed up have any experience of running Antlog 3 we usually rely on Gary who doesn't seem to be coming.

Rats! Seen this too late as I won't be ready in time. Hopefully I'll have my ant finished in time for the next AWS! :D
Greenwich is a pretty good location. Are there likely to be more events held here?
