    Default Venom Karbonis TT Challenge!



    So the little guy has taken to waking up at 3-4 AM, and then going back to sleep.
    For some reason, I'm not quite managing the "back to sleep" part anywhere near as well as he is.

    At the same time, I'm getting congratulations on my new Karbonis times, which is great except that I don't have any. I'm still being beaten by Lance and his FEISAR because I'm having great difficulty getting that Qirex around the track in any better time than what I've done previously in an AG Sys.

    What does this add up to? If you guessed "TT Challenge!" then you're right!

    Anyone can enter, the game is NTSC WO1. No set time limit, the challenge goes until everyone is bored with it and stops posting. The rules are that you post your best recent times in the usual place and then you post something here to get me to notice your new time. Then I add you to the standings.

    After getting in an AG Sys with Daniel Chang, I've done one of the best flights I can manage:
    Code:
    Track      - Lap 1 - Lap 2 - Lap 3 - Total
    Karbonis V - 44.4  - 45.5  - 45.4  - 2:15.3
    Current Standings:
    (standings moved to post #55)

    What?! You finally beat my FEISAR time?
    Hm.. if the mood strikes, I shall warm up my slugly beauty, in its glorious yellow and blue, and see what I can do.

    My times, if any, I shall edit into this post.
    Come to think of it, I was using the Sophia de la Rente [sp?] version, so it wasn't yellow and blue.

    Feisar:
    Best lap: 46.80
    Best race: 2:22.70

    8 ) Indeed I did! I just had to get over my desire to beat my records with Qirex. Isadora and her boundless enthusiasm for AG Sys did the trick. 8 D

    Sofia de la Rente is indeed Yellow/Blue. With White added in.
    Paul Jackson is Red/White/Blue, very similar, but no yellow.

    Cool Yes, I'm in...

    Okay! All my times will be for AG Systems (KIT piloting under the name John Dekka...). I gave it a go today and came up with:

    Race time: 2:22:0 (sorry I didn't write down each lap time. will be sure to get it next time)
    Lap time: 0:46:9

    Feisar's turn!
    I will add any new times to this post.

    Isadora and her boundless enthusiasm for AG Sys did the trick. 8 D
    I do come across as a bit rabid, don't I? Especially considering a lot of my WO3 records entered in are Icaras records...I'll fix that sometime.

    Session 2 Times:
    Lap 1 - Lap 2 - Lap 3 - Total
    47:1 - 47:0 - 46:5 - 2:20:6
    Session 3 Times:
    45:9 - 46:2 - 45:8 - 2:17:9
    Session 4 Times:
    45:0 - 45:5 - 45:9 - 2:16:4

    Well, for the most part, Icaras is the way to go in WO3. Twisty courses in Phantom class offer the occasional opportunity for a great times with something else. With the original, though, I've played it almost not at all, so I've no idea what works best where.

    Cool

    Ahem...uh, Session 3 was a good one for me.
    I've finally got the hang of that hyperthrust start!

    Oooh! Well done! I have _such_ a hard time getting the good start.

    I don't suppose you've found a good way to get it reliably besides "use an analog thrust button and hold it partway down", have you?

    Cool

    Quote from Wipeout Guide: "...feather the thrust so that it is in the third bar from right"
    ie. wear your thumb out by tapping the thrust button (I use the B button on my negcon which I believe is digital??) and about one time out of ten (Tonight I had it down to one out five, lol) you get the real, full speed at start hyperthrust.

    Easier said than done!!!

    I will always remember the day I got to be on top of the world wipeout record tables...on a table with only three pilots, haha!! I am really enjoying playing Wipeout. I thought it would be a "chore" (dare I call it that? NO!) after playing wip3out so much, but not so. It really does seem FAST, not just the speed but the way the tracks are laid out.

    Finally got the kid down early and put in some good WO time...

    My very first run at it, I manage:
    46.1 + 46.1 + 45.7 = 2:17.9

    And after a couple more runs that don't surpass that I think to myself "nice run! that should be getting me close to 1st place on this track again!". Only to find out that your time is... 2:17.9! And you've got a better laptime than me! So back for a couple more runs...

    45.7 + 45.9 + 45.7 = 2:17.3!

    Retaking the gold!

    I think you'll be keeping the lap record though, and until I pull off the turbo start that'll be the best I can likely manage on this course.

    Which means it's time to have a look at some of the other times that have defeated me... 8 )

    Cool

    Ooooh, sweet race! Three 45 second laps I may have to lay off my Feisar challenge a bit and give this one another effort.
    Very nice, Task!

    (P.S. Did you see the Rapier lap time? I beat my AG time with a Feisar so I had to go back and wear my thumb out until AG was on top again )
