    It's only a problem online (maybe because of spectators), I just helped a friend
    (again) to beat Zico, so yeah I had to do those BRs and it worked fine.

    I need to try more offline races, if that works fine then it means it's the online
    only.

    I've definately noticed a change in the way the ships handle and it will definately take me a while to adjust to but BR's were always unreliable for me anyway.

    It has a high carnage rate that's for sure.

    I posted at the Aus/NZ Playstation forum,even the die hard gamers have given up the ghost RE: Wipeout HD.

    TOO HARD is the major response.

    Vineta K reverse - first jump is one of the easier barrel rolls in the game. I'd like to think I have that nailed. I can't remember the last time I missed it. Last night - just wouldn't happen. Big pile of arse!

    I think online records will be harder to beat but they're totally screwed right now anyway because of an issue described in other thread. Offline probably not, obviously, as it seems to be reported that offline barrel rolls behave the same. So I guess it's yet another lag issue. I think the fact that handling feels quite different now will take a lot of getting used to. If anyone was close to the top of the table and working their way up, then I think it might be a while before they can get back to the same standard if their first choice ship's handling has changed a lot.

    The only thing good about the update is that it's given me something new to complain about. I quite like complaining and was starting to have to recycle old complaints. Not good!

    Quick question-- I haven't played WOHD now in a few months so am out of the loop!

    Are the BR's harder due to changes in frame rate and lag? Input for BR's is supposed to be frame-rate dependent, which is why they sometimes couldn't be done in WO Pure and Pulse in the midst of heavy traffic.

    Just curious

    It's to do with online lag I think now.
    FPS don't drop online, it seems always 60FPS.
    There are only micro-stutters sometimes (Spectator mode related).
