    Yeah, I got it tonight with a 30.77. Only sideshift I did was the one off the bridge.

    L1 R1 mapping is definitely an adjustment, but I remember only hitting the BR onto the bridge maybe 1/10 laps on the original WOHD. With L1 R1 I was doing it almost every lap. Took me 84 laps total to get the trophy this time (which is less than an hour of work) and without the two glasses of scotch I probably could have done it in half that.

    You know, that should be a handicap for us older folk. I don't race with at least a beer or 4. I would love to have a drunken master tournament! Congrats though! I always hated that trophy in HD, and I got it my second freakin' lap this go round. It was the first trophy I got too! Too bad there isn't a lapped out trophy, I definitely did that tonight trying to get top 3 on Moa Therma SL. That damn BSB start is a killer to get, and I finally pull it off, and miss the barrel rolls at the end for a lousy 7th place :/

    I think I got sub 30 on HD on Anulpha Pass. Don't know if I want to try that again.

    Totally down for a drunken master tournament. Actually I think a drink or two helps me on Zone. Takes a little bit of edge off. More than that and things go downhill...

    How do we confirm alcohol progress? Hey here is an idea, wine takes a shot. If they keep winning they keep drinking until they don't until the next pilot gets wasted. Sounds exhausting but fun.

    I don't exactly have poor reflexes but I do have some joint issues with my hands. It make doing side shifts and some BRs a little hard sometimes. Especially left side shifts (my left hand is a bit worse than my right). I'm curious on what controllers or mappings some of you might be using. I've tried a few things that mostly didn't work. Right now I'm using a Strike Pack for my Dual Shock and I have acceleration mapped to the right paddle. It's a bit easier on my finger/thumb for me to hold that paddle down than the x button.

    i have same probs with my left hand ... quick ss and br are more difficult

    Im using classical mapping without sensor only change L2/R2 to L1/R1 for aerobrakes and set them to 40%

    The only tip I would have for bad joints is to remap left and right to L1 and R1, as mentioned above. Takes a while to get used to but makes a world of difference in the dexterity requirement for barrel rolls.

    @mannjon I think we take people at their word. If you win and you know you weren't drinking then you're a douche. Sucks to be you!

    Hey tug_14. I remember you from PS3 but have yet to see you online in Omega. Thanks for the tips. I tried changing the airbrakes to L1/R1 but had a very hard time adjusting to it. What do you mean by
    'without sensor"?

    skythian,
    Thanks. I saw the earlier posts and tried that left/right to L1/R1 remapping to. I found it a bit hard to get used to and still had roughly the same difficulty doing some BRs. But I only did about 30-40 speed lap tests while trying that method. I might give it another go.
