    Default Random HD Questions that don't need a thread of their own.

    Does the thrust powerup effect get reduced by the magnetic strips?

    Is there a 'fast start' key press combination?

    why we cannot plane any more while pushing on bottom at the moment of the jumps like psone opus ??(here the ship always falls down very heavily if we do not make a loop in air)?
    why we don't see any more the weapons on the collects boxes (different colors according to weapons)?
    regrettable…

    Might as well ask here, seeing as it is a questions thread.

    What do the panels on the track do. Call me a nub if you want, but I didn't really notice them while playing last night.

    I forgot, I had one other question: how long do mines and bombs hang around if no-one sets them off?

    In past versions it's been ~ 10 seconds.

    Probably the same now...

    Recently I was in a race (offline) and I was in first, and as I came around for lap 2, I saw a bomb in the distance, which then exploded itself before I could get to it. Definitely wasnt set off by a ship, so maybe when the race leader comes toward them, they disappear (spectacularly!).

    It coul'dve just been a bug though if no one else has experienced this.

    If you prefer a visual cue, the red bar that moves across behind the 3,2,1 countdown can be used. The moment the red bar reaches the right hand side of the countdown display you mash the throttle

    nub
    in modes where weapons are enabled, you will see red Xs on the track, when you pass over these a weapon or item will become available on your craft
    The blue ^ shaped panels give you a small speed boost when passed over

    in other news: norfolk'n'clue <- that is an awesome name

    I was hoping someone would start a thread like this!

    I can tell from the vids that you don't "stick" to the walls when you hit them anymore, like in Pure and Pulse, which is damn good. But does this mean they re-implemented scraping (getting a speed boost for just barely riding the wall, like in 2097 and W30 - makes about as much sense as barrel-rolling, but I loved it all the same) or is that still out?

    And concerning Zone mode, when do the zone speeds stop increasing? I know in Pure it was ~ zone 65, but maybe because of the better hardware it has been increased for PS3?


    Thanks guys!
