The King beat me earlier today. Just. I was in front and when I cross the line it says I came second, but our times were exactly the same. I decided to save the replay and find out the gap for myself. Here is what I found:



Rather tight, don't you think?

It was tight, even if you got exactly the same time King still pipped you over the line. Just a shame I messed the chicane up 2 laps in a row Razz

Very cool, the view like that

Had a check what replays I have from MadLaps, I got one close race with The King on UpsideDown (or something like that Razz) and one close race with Mad and Mid, but in the first replay we're just not in a close finish, and in the second replay, we're about to make a close finish, but like 20 meters before the line, Mad just stops, the replay chokes him Razz

I'm not sure how accurate the replay representations are when it come to close finishes. The server can be set to create replays and I guess that these may differ from yours due to the network pings etc. Just a hunch but I'll have to check it out sometime.

Saved quite a few replays off the server, of various pretty fun races, and all the ghosts appear to have very little lag whatsoever, and with no cars jumping about everywhere either.

How do you go about saving replays of online races anyway?

Well, personally I have throttle on X. And brake on Square. And analogue stick to move.

But D, or S for brake? Even if I used a keyboard I wouldn't think of using that kind of setup. Too many keys surrounding them to make a mistake.

Ring finger on TAB to check the times, middle finger on S for braking, index finger on C to see what people are saying Mr. Green can't miss Wink

D-pad you have to constantly tap a direction if the corner is too wide for the turn radius when the button is pressed. With the analogue stick you just have to move it to your desired position, so much easier and less RSI-inducing Razz

Everyone's doing it wrong. But Moldo can have some points for being the closest Laughing

Directional buttons for steering - right hand
D for braking/sliding - left index finger
Tab for scores - left ring finger
C for reading - left index finger when your on a straight so no need to slide Rolling Eyes
