    If you jump and perform a barrel roll, depending on the track inclination the boost from the first barrel roll on landing will keep you airborne for a little longer. Since you used the boost from the first roll you can roll again to get a second boost!

    I've only managed to do this once on Ubermall, the straight before the finish line since the track goes up and levels out it is possible to use this technique there
    It was either Leungbouk or Pirapac that told me you can do a double BR pretty much anywhere you have the air time to, and the thumb dexterity
    The trick is you have to do it the opposite of the previous BR.
    So say the first was Left / Right / Left , the next should be Right /Left / Right.
    If you look at some of the old SL videos from say the top 10 WR times, you will see they all pretty much do this.

    Well you don't actually bounce off 'Invisible Walls', more like go through them, especially on Ubermall reverse.

    Are you talking about a double in air without landing anywhere? Or do you mean than you land for a split second before getting a second roll?
    I mean the one where you land for a split second and perform the second roll.

    thats the Turbo BR shortcut... but there's another just a little later which can be done without turbo... up the hill side shift BR and BR again when you hit the non existent wall.

    Got same "problem" hehe ,when i started playing WO i was going for phantom but now my preferred speed classes are:

    1 Flash
    2 Rapier (more fast paced race but good opportunities for BR too )
    3 Venom/Phantom (Venom,to slow for my taste and slighty different BR techniques , Phantom its ...phantom , "you love it or hate it"

    Its all about BR for me ,looking around for new places for roll added more deep to already great game also very important is to "feel" ship and track environment

    annnd on Uber Rev right after start its great place to double BR ,important to approach it with added angle, SS and fire BR then V.fast next one

    Greetz!

    that double over the hill in uber rev once went wrong and turned into a quadruple - no lies... didn't make much difference to the speed though coz i didn't anticipate the nudge from other ships and so... well, I BR'd the two extra ones (muscle memory when getting some air) just to maintain the speed from the previous two BR's lol.

    Weird thing is, my girl saw me do that on her screen when she was racing and was like "wow"... little did she know that it wasn't fast or anything lol, just trying to keep speed up.

    I'm gutted i can't record races anymore, pulled of some very nice moves over the past year or so. Would have been ace to have them up on YT to show off

    And Marcingru, flash speed seems to have all the thrills I don't love phantom as much as I do flash, but phantom is still a speed class I race, albeit very occasionally. I just don't find it as appealing as flash trickin' BR's like a monkey on hallucinogens flying aerobatic anti grav machines

    Ok, who spiked me with DMT?

    Apparently, 285,970 people own wipEout HD Fury, at best - if everyone actually paid for the game - it would have grossed 5,719,400 at 20 per game (HD+Fury)

    Considering that the game became free during the PSN hacking fiasco, and the fact that the game is now even cheaper than the original 20 - I think a safe estimate for the gross could be anywhere between 1,000,000 - 1,800,000.

    These are just guestimates, but I'm curious if anyone actually has the figures.

    It would explain why Sony shut SL down. Maybe, if they had released the other WipEout games (and G-Police) on PSN, and released the DLC for Pulse in the US, they would have gotten better sales.

    Also, I had a thought: What if Somy adopted a Name-Your-Price approach, where every game's price would be the baseline for the minimum price. Wealthier customers who want to support the developer can be a little extra if they really, REALLY want. It wouldn't be guaranteed to work, but it would not hurt either.

    Did you know...

    That the names of Auricom and Qirex may have Latin Origins?
    Auricom seems an elaboration of the Latin word "Aureo" which means "Golden" (lalwhut?), mixed up with the name "America", oblivious.
    Qirex is more closely linked to a phrase I tested with the spell "Qui Rex?" meaning "Which King?", so is like meaning "We are the King" (istillconsiderthemasamorefemenineteam -SHOT!-) .

    Again about Qirex, they choosed Violet as basic color to differ from the 'Murica Team's colors, since we know, both of their national flags are Blue-Red-White. So Qirex mixed up Red and Blue and puf! Violet was born!

    Assegai is also a tree, the Zulu Tribe takes the wood off it to make the well-known Spears which give the name of this loved Team; in South Africa, where the Team born, this tree is protected.

    Pir-hana have the flower as Logo due to in Chinese/Japanese language, "Hana" means "Flower".
    Pir? WAT?

    The Track Vostok Reef (?) is a real place, but in Antartide, the real name is just Vostok and is a Russian Base for the studies in that land; also there they registered the lowest temperature ever: -89 Celsius.

    Makana means Gift in Hawaian Language, not Goteki as I read once P:

    Here for now what I discovered guys! Enjoy! :3
