What the contest is that the contest is having to collect 20 or so glowing runes from anywhere around the realm. What the offline utility does is you can either have the 20 or glowing runes be hidden or just sitting in the rooms for the players to find. Also the rooms are picked at random and could be anywhere. It you can also check the status of the contest and it'll list the rooms/players that has a glowing rune. If I remember correctly you need to have a glowing rune and be at town square to enter the tournament by typing enter tourament? because it'll check to see if you have a rune and if you do you'll receive a tournament badge. I think that's as far as the tournament part went other than the area for the tournament on map #5. Also this is for an old version of mud ;)

One last note: When the contest enabled it creates a file called WCCCNTST.FLG - It's just a flag file for mud saying a contest is in progress, works just like when mud needs a recovery next bootup and creates WCCRECOV.FLG file.
When a contest is ongoing then you can check the progress of the contest in WCCMMUTL. This creates a file called WCCCNTST.RES with the results.
I noticed after enabling the contests and then booting up the bbs a temp file gets created called WCCMP001.PRE and then deletes itself. The file which contained just shows map#/room# for a single room. I'm not even sure if this is related to the
contests. Same goes for the significance of the map#/room# that was listed. It was just something I noticed.

Below is what is shown in the file WCCCNTST.RES - It'll first list the map#/room# where it randomly placed the magical runes. Secondly when checking the status of the contest it'll list what rooms the magical runes are still in unless found which then instead it'll show which player has found a magical rune by replacing the map/room it was in with the player's name. Also all the future contests & status check info will appended to the file. I'm not sure if the contest will automatically end it self when all the magical runes are found or just when the sysop decides to end it by using WCCMMUTL. Don't forget that you can have these runes hidden or just sitting in the room for players to find easier.

Intresting, so I take it the rune had to be found to enter the tourny at TS. But from there it just not completed?
