1.37.38 - 35 pads - some BRs - Fury Assegai

I used the old fashioned method for now because I suck at the other one. Might have another go tomorrow night.

I have photos too, so will post them if I end up in a good placing.

I fail at Phantom... and Vineta K :(

can't do any BR's with high enough consistency... plus my boost location fails sometimes and gets too much hang time (doing it at the end, I haven't been able to do that double BR yet).

atm my time is 1.37.91, but if I can pull off a few more BR's that could easily be broken

KGB
19th November 2009, 06:40 PM
1.37.65 for me. Just can't get that double BR before the first tunnel so this is old school as well. It won't get much faster unless I change where I'm boosting. Yeldar is a bit quick here :+.

yeldar2097
20th November 2009, 12:34 AM
I'll give it a go with the classic method and see what I come up with :)
Just for ref, is that boosting in the middle or at the end?

SaturnReturn
20th November 2009, 06:14 PM
I did it at the end.

EDIT:

After 2 attempts with HD Assegai I got 1.36.85 using the pirahpac method that yeldar used in his video. I found HD Assegai much better for this as it seems easier to get the air at the end of the lap to do the 2 BRs. Again, I have no idea how many BRs I did as I missed half of them, but it was still a fair bit faster.

Using the method where you boost at the end, it is actually possible to get two BRs if you keep the ship low enough, hit the pad, and bounce+BR after it. So that would be 5 with an old school method. Or boost in the middle and do the two at the end without the boost and it's still 5 I think. Didn't someone (leungbok?) do a video ages ago showing a BR right at the start of the lap without a boost?

yeldar2097
21st November 2009, 04:48 PM
Yes you can grab a BR at the start of the lap, actually there are two places but I'm not sure you can do both in one lap. I'll have a look for Leung's vid in a mo.
Having said that I reckon it'd be a much harder BR to perfect than the BoostBRBR at the start.

I got a 1.32.x can't remember exactly, but managed to boost on the shortcut every lap. However, it's really sending me high in the air, really need to keep the nose down (can you still make the jump if you do this?)

KGB
24th November 2009, 10:32 AM
Managed to get 4 perfect laps but missed 2 of the stupid BRs off the tight right hander, I'm going over the wing at the moment as I keep respawning under it, has it been changed in a patch?

1.30.94 - 26 pads - 6 BRs (Double grr) - Fury

phaeton_pl
24th November 2009, 10:39 AM
No it hasn't been changed in patch, you can still do a double under the wing.

My best Icaras+ time is 1.29.00 with TarotCardKiller/Wellington method (boost at start/finish line). Gonna try Harimau tonight.

24th November 2009, 06:58 PM
You can double BR over the wing too. Use your boost a bit earlier, fly over the wing and you should land soon enough to do second BR.
Check brainbeat's video, he was close on 4th lap.

Not sure is it faster :)

yeah i have managed to double br over wing but just playin safe for now i allways seem to mess up whenever im doing perfect start. u can also go lefthand lip to lefthand lip get 2 brs then turbo round the next turn and get an extra br in, i reckon its same time if line is learnt

Can't believe this, my previous time was made after about 6 attempts, and since then I've had about 50 and all I've come up with so far is 1.30.04.

I can do the whole track better but my consistency has been atrocious, I keep on crashing out in a big way whenever I'm in front of my ghost...

last 2 laps again were not the best. I had a good run before and was on a running to get around 1.51 but i only managed like 4 brs the whole lap because i was anxious, need to meditate to do this lol

KGB
3rd December 2009, 02:10 PM
1.56.60 here. I decided to get my lines a bit better before I started the BR fest. Missing loads but managed more than I started with. Just looked at the save data file to get the time and it says that it was done with Icaras?? Also is anyone having trouble with their ghost ships, sometimes it shoots off in front before the first corner and other times I beat it but don't beat the record time.

brainbeat
3rd December 2009, 02:23 PM
I did have a bad ghost myself but it was further ahead than it should be so kinda helped, i usaully turn ghost off if its glitched like did to you, also i noticed it happens more when you try to beat time you just beat so I always return to main menu and let fully save before retry,

leungbok
3rd December 2009, 02:49 PM
Those ghost's issues happened months ago !:? when the good ghost remains in my save file, i automatically save it on my second account.

KGB
3rd December 2009, 04:00 PM
Well it corrects its self eventually but why does it swap from being too fast to too slow, and why is it saved as Icaras when it is showing the correct time for what I did in the Feisar? Strange.

SaturnReturn
3rd December 2009, 05:49 PM
Too many of my ghosts are screwed. I usually give up with TT when the ghost gets buggered up, rather than reaching my limit. I do what brainbeat does too, I wait for it to save fully and then return to the menu and go back in. Otherwise it seems to always start off wrong, although won't necessarily last. Sometimes they don't correct themselves, and sometimes it just saves a slow ghost for no reason whatsoever. It's very irritating. I didn't realise they could be saved to a second account though, thanks Leungbok.

KGB
8th December 2009, 04:29 PM
Yeah I always like watching the videos, can never do the things on them, but it might give me a .10 somewhere. :+

Yeldar I'm using the boost at the charisma free shortcut after the first mag mate. I've seen you use it on the home straight and then use the lip or nose up to just get across the gap to BR where most people boost to - does that make sense.

I would love to see how easy you make this BR into the tunnel look. I've still only managed it about three times. When it is coming off so badly then it's time to stop it :nod. Even though it's at Venom the nose up - SS - LRL - don't hit anything, is beyond me.

yeldar2097
8th December 2009, 06:07 PM
lol. The lip BR-chain is pretty easy to start. After that at least 2BRs is possible but getting 3-4 is INSANELY hard. Can't say I spent much time on it but I'll try to find an easier way of pulling them off in the near future.
Yeah doing the mini-shortcut in venom is only faster if you can do a double BR, otherwise it's a bit slower. All will be revealed in the video :nod

KGB
8th December 2009, 06:39 PM
"The lip BR-chain is pretty easy to start". Cheeky sod :P. My thumb says different. :+

This is the lip on the right side of the tunnel isn't it? Just can't seem to get any height on it.

On a side note managed 1.39.xx - Icaras+, which is good for me. I seem to be enjoying the time trial more than the speed lap for this track, which is the opposite of last week.

15th December 2009, 04:25 PM
not at the start, I think you need the previous lap's boost to give you the extra speed needed, as well as the speed pad on the right. Yeldar made a video a while back that shows the WR time, it was very helpful :P

here it is:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L4PypH59ay8

my boost style on the last lap though is more akin to how I outlined it in the speed lap thread though, I personally think it's faster than a simple boost-br; Yeldar is just fast in general :P

Dark_Phantom_89
15th December 2009, 04:38 PM

theres 2 ways of getting br, one by just touching the righthandside u can then pitch up sometimes enough or u can land on rail pitch up and ss right, but the latter has to be a perfect line, from left to right on the bump before to get the angle

Quite a tricky one this week, at least for me it was ;)

Thanks to all who participated, your names will live on forever in the Hall of Fame thread.

Speaking of tricky, I know that the forward version of this track caused a few problems, so I felt it time to up the ante and try out the reverse version, albeit on a lower speed class this time. So, I present this weeks challenge:

TIME TRIAL/MODESTO HEIGHTS (REVERSE)/VENOM/EG-X

Rezatron
16th February 2010, 12:43 AM
Where are you boosting? I had a massive Metropia reverse session a few days ago and feel like I can offer some advice ;)

The fastest method seems to be boosting down the hill towards the end of the track. Boosting over the "cage" at the bottom of this hill can be faster depending on how you land.

Posting a video would have been so much better but I hope the following turns out understandable: :dizzy

The very first speed pad on the track doesn't seem to be beneficial as it's kind of off the racing line, I find almost no difference between using it or maintaining a tighter line on the left side of the track. SS and hit the apex of the first left hander, take the 3 speed pads of course, as you approach the right hand turn, SS into the air over the wall. Where and how you land after this SS is crucial to set up your line for the next left hander going into the mag strip. I'm thinking a common place people lose time is when they vere off to the right instead of staying tight along the left wall (another SS here helps maintain this line). Take 2 speed pads as you enter the mag and then the other 2 over the rise on the left side. I to like to maintain a straight racing line as I exit the mag after the previous 2 speed pads. This means taking the single speed pad instead of the 2 upon exiting the mag (once again I find almost difference in time here!). After the next two turns hit the speed pad and boost down the hill, try boosting over the cage and see if it's faster for you as opposed to just boosting down the hill (seems like you can gain a few milliseconds).

Just tried to do same route as speed lap but 4 laps. Is that the quickest way or do you make more time from boosting into lap?

Haha same I forgot about it completely as well. I've been too busy trying to beat your SL, about 200 or so laps later and I can't improve lol. I'll put my TT in this post once I finish it later today.
