    One more small thing I noticed still being there in Pulse: Contrary to what WipEout games tell you, falling off the track DOES ruin a perfect lap. Is there a sensible reason that you can fall off and still get a PL?

    I would think falling off the track would be just as bad, actually worse than hitting into a wall...

    There should be an option to turn motion blur on and off.

    Honestly, I don't see how people can complain about the motion blur who haven't yet actively experienced it (means played the game). I think it is a very good addition to the overall speed feeling, and, as I mentioned before in another thread, what's really cool is when you are going over multiple pads in succession, the blur makes your adrenaline go up since you get some kind of tunnel vision and feel like you're losing control. But I could be imagining things...

    I didn't say I don't like it. Infact I like it very much for NFSU for example. But I know I race much better without it.
    And I see no problem in adding an option so more players are satisfied

    Would a Wip3out - esque cockpit view where if flying a ship like Goteki you can see the hulls look good?

    Not really, 'cos you couldn't see most of the track.

    In fact, with the Mirage/Mantis you wouldn't be able to see anything at all!

    Wipeout 3 got round it though. They just omitted the prongs and nosecones.

    well in wipEout 3 it's basically just the nosecam with an object stuck in front of it, isn't it? It's not the view from the actual position of the cockpit, so I guess this wouldn't be suitable as an approach nowadays...

    This may run some traditionalists the wrong way, but I can't stand the proportionally-spaced fonts they use for displaying times, speeds, etc.

    I don't mean the actual forms of the letters; the problem is that not all the numbers are the same width. It looks really unbalanced. Check out the sample run of Zone on Youtube and pay attention to the score at the top center part of the screen -- when yuo get past 20,000, and all the numbers are "full-width" (i. e., no "1"s), the score edges out of the right side of the window.

    It's entirely possible to design a futuristic, stylish font where all the numbers are the same width. Do it.
