  1. As I was posting the image I was thinking ffs, I don’t even know how that started but it’s always been my arcade name, my excuse is it’s quick to enter and my name is Jason so it’s kinda like Jase Yes Postino! I guess now we’re headed for the 3:09s, after thinking it wouldn’t be manageable I’ve done a couple of 37.65 laps so it’s on the cards after all.
  2. Holiday time! Got some time in the hotel room today and have figured out a few things. Focusing on taking corners as tightly as possible seems to have taken me up a good notch, quite a few of my first laps are 39.09 now. Top 6 looks like this:-
  3. Reckon I was headed for the same time last night and yeah, had one of those backmarkers on the final turn sequence >_< all over the place haha, got a 11.06 with a 38.18 final lap. On holiday for two weeks from this weekend. This sucker will be getting played.
  4. Anyone figured out any tips for the start? I haven’t analysed it much but tend to just hit the accelerator on Go.
  5. Nicely done! Just grabbed a couple of runs before heading out the door, you wait ages for a sub 38 lap and then two come along at once!
  6. Oh very nice, another .2 can come off that for sure but we’re getting pretty close to the bone now eh. I’d say I don’t think I could get below 3:11 but I just watched some replays and they’re hitting 38.5 on the opening lap, so much faster!
  7. Thanks for highlighting that, I didn’t realise you could use the dpad buttons, way more consistent, new best! How have I not broken 38 yet!? Must’ve got it flat about 10 times now.
  8. Stepped it up! Had a bit of a breakthrough in the last series of corners, was entering the first section(the double right before the left) too wide, you can come in just on the outer of the skid marks and the tighter line seems to se time up better for the left hander. For the hairpin, I’m approaching about a car’s width left of the middle and throwing the car into the apex, as I’m turning I’m trying to lose as little speed as possible by letting off the accelerator without the car sliding. Weirdly on my last lap I had to drive around a backmarker and swung left before turning in and had a great line from it, might try that again.
  9. I’m now in that plateau where I’m always about half a second slower overall on forest and cannot match the 38 flat lap I did yesterday. Will keep at it, the sudden race where it all falls into place will happen soon I can feel it. Loving this game.
  10. Yeah it’s super tough, I can’t judge the turn in at all, I’m trying to throw the car into the apex and feather the accelerator to get around but sometimes I hit the apex and slow too much and other times the car just won’t go in. Managed to break into the 12s with a 3:12.90 Think if I can sort that bloody hairpin I can get a set of 37s laps together.
  11. Aha! Sorted! Thanks, that wasn't quite what was happening, but your suggestion enabled me to figure it out, it said the emulator was installed, I updated from source and that fixed the issue. Thanks! Anyone else having specific emulator issues this video helped me figure out how to install them https://youtu.be/bLHh5b2IWxQ
  12. Hey, New RetroPie owner here, bought off a forum user, yay! In classic n00b style I accessed what I think was a retro arch menu and in trying to figure out how to exit the menu I think I changed a setting somehow and no SNES games will launch anymore. When I open the rom launch menu it is showing 0 emulators available.(screenshot attached) Anyone know how I can fix this or am I going to have to put a new RetroPie image on the SD card. All other systems work great.

    Had to Remote Desktop via my work PC and do some random clicking on broken images but there you are! Looks like by December you’d upped your score but more scores had been added above. The snapshot of my score is just under 19mil which is lower than what’s on your site so not sure it was my best, I think i scraped through about 21-22million, was always a bit behind yourself. Amazing to see it up there though haha. Its weird looking king at this board, a time in my life just after I’d graduated, back home in Cornwall. I was pouring hours into it because I had absolutely no idea how I was going to get a job, sleeping in till midday and then sticking this on all afternoon. My parents did well to not bust my balls at the time in retrospect.

    When the game first came out there was the official international competition with the top 20 world players getting trophies or something, I think my highest rank was just outside the top 20 but I have no idea what my best score was for that, don’t suppose you know what that website was or if there’s still a record of those rankings anywhere do you? I might have another google actually cause I just realised you could use an online time machine to see the old site.
