View Full Version : New ZICO-Challenge: beat ZICO with 1st lap!

18th July 2009, 11:36 AM
hi there, everybody. i have an idea of a new challenge to beat ZICO with your first lap. i already posted this idea in the wipEout HD forum. some things you have to know about: (1.) mode: SPEEDLAP/TIMETRIAL; class: VENOM; track: ANULPHA PASS forward; ship: free choice. (2.) you have to start after 3,2,1,GO. (3.) equal or beat the time of 30.82 with your first lap. (4.) ghost is required to proof your time to be legal.

i hated every minute of that challenge! my all means show us first as it was barely possible with a boost start to begin with...:banzai

my best result so far: 31.18 - ICARAS(4/4) - 5 BarrelRolls - 14 SpeedPads. "just" 0.36 sec., i need a 6th BR.

Im surprised Zicos challenge was so despised. I got annoyed yes, but it was the cataylst for me to find out how to make barrel rolls from seemingly nothing.

btw. the TimeTrial-mode is the best to train ur best first lap, cause of the restart-function. ;)

new best: 31.00 - 5BRs - 14SPs - ICARAS.

It appears you are challenging only yourself with the thought of challenging others. Curious :P

new best: 30.93 - ICARAS/F - 5BR - 14SP. so close and still so far :)

after completing the new ZICO-challenge (30.00), i have a new 1 to come up with. beat ZICO (30.82) without using the turbo! it's even harder then my 1st challenge, but possible. after that i will try to beat ZICO with turbo, but without using barrelrolls! not sure, if it's possible. maybe :)

Hey guys, what about beating zico without taking the upper pass ? :cowboy

8th February 2010, 07:49 AM
Already done it mate ;)

8th February 2010, 08:08 AM
:eekYou tried everything to humiliate that poor Zico !:lol

8th February 2010, 09:26 AM
Beating Zico with only one hand? Anyone? :)


Beating Zico with "motion pitch and steering"?

8th February 2010, 01:55 PM

9th February 2010, 02:44 PM

add cockpit view to that...

Here I am guys! I know, maybe there is an higher learning curve with these settings but finally I got it! :hyper

15th February 2010, 02:34 PM
skills mate i bet that took a while to pull off. good work :+

15th February 2010, 07:20 PM
:eek Whow, nice job :eek

20th April 2010, 10:43 AM
i dont know if anybody has noticed but texasalex has smashed the zico record 26.71 an incredible time, respect where its due mate well done :clap

20th April 2010, 02:42 PM
Nice job with motion control & cockpit view.:+
It felt difficult just watching it.
Not the cockpit view, I can't race without that, but the motion control , it seemed extra floaty, and the steering just looked strange in comparison to how the same run would look using the D-Pad.

How the hell did texasalex get that time ?
That was with Piranha correct ?
I don't have a PS3 atm so I can't view the records,....or do anything else :(
That's amazing

I was fixing up a few Venom PB's of mine a couple of weeks ago and noticed texasalex was making a lot of killer times just before that, so hat's off to him for that record. It's pretty incredible.

20th April 2010, 03:47 PM
i think it was fury icaras he used. me, jf and barnster boost after 1st left but he does the double BR without the boost like in phaetons vid a while back, he uses his boost exiting the tunnel for another double BR. works out he gets 2 more BRs a lap :dizzy

20th April 2010, 10:28 PM
Which double BR? I think Phaeton's vid had one going right out of the tunnel and another one where he boosts onto the bridge and grazes it enough to BR off it twice

Actually that could be a pretty good method; right out of the tunnel; as long as you can get the BR's coming out of that first long left hander... hmmm. I've never managed to pull off that first BR though.

21st April 2010, 05:07 PM
texasalex did it, the 1st 26.xx! great job. :clap

he did 11BRs in his lap!

i think, if i teach him the double BR offbridge,
he can go under 26.5!

if we combine our knowledge bout ZICO,
im sure we can do the 25.9 someday.
