    Default advanced techniques / curious things - wipEout HD

    did not find an existing thread about this, so i make 1.

    feel free to add something others around the WHD-universe might not know.

    i begin with ÜBERMALL/techniques:
    there's something special about this track.
    it's possible to shoot a missisle backwards @ the split (both directions). u have to shoot @ the middle of the split to get it done. the 1 behind u might not know that this is possible, and will be shocked (maybe destroyed with a direct hit).

    also ÜBERMALL/curious/split-section/both directions:
    the autopilot is able to perfom a BR @ the split, but i really don't know how to force the autopilot to do it. it happened twice to me (1x/direction). if it's done correct, the autopilot will take the split section with super speed (way faster then any human!).

    CHENGOU-P>>/techniques:
    after the circle-turn u fly through a small tunnel. if u have rockets and the 1 ahead of u is too far to reach, u can aiming slightly to the right and shoot in the direction of the "robot-factory" building. with little luck...

    AFAIK, you can do BRs in autopilot simply by doing the input, on any track (provided it has a jump, naturally ).

    I found once auto pilot was activated you cant br , might just be me though. I always wait till the br starts before hitting square.

    Same for me, never done a BR while ap was activated. Never succeeded in pulse too, only in pure.

    BRing in AP is Not Possible. You must Deactivate the AP then BR. This is nicer cause it usually throws you fast in the direction you Disengage.

    BR in AP worked in older wipeouts like Pure and Pulse I think, but haven't
    managed to do one in HD, otherwise I would use AP a lot more often lol.

    Just as a quick note on the autopilot BR'ing, it's quite random, but happens when the autopilot puts the input in, depending on the angle of the corner and whatnot.

    That said, it's never completed a BR, but I've heard the sound and seen the craft roll somewhat like it had put the command in.

    As far as other tricks go, using an AP right in the beginning of tech de ra Reverse while slightly on the outside of the beginning of the turn is way fast as well.

    @ eLhabib: i don't believe that it's so "easy" as u said, otherwise more elites would use this technique to go faster in special sections.
    the 2x it happened to me, i was racing online @ rapier-speed.

    @ vartazian: it is possible, believe me. maybe it's completely random.

    Sorry, my mistake - this worked in Pure and somehow I assumed it would work in HD as well - guess I was wrong

    I often manage BRs with AP at the last turn on Seb Rev and sometimes after the hairpin on CP fwd, no idea how to do it deliberately though.

    Maybe AP can read my mind...

    Quaking someone just before they get to a weapon pad = no weapon for quake recipient...PITA if you're low on % as a result of the quake and on the receiving end
