  1. Was interesting on Gigatrack where it was really clear to see what a massive difference keeping the front wheel up or shifting the rider around makes - I think that track has improved my Trials skills no end.

  2. Finally golded gigatrack last night after many (many (MANY)) attempts - annoyingly with a single fault which occured somewhere I'd *never* faulted before :(. Pretty confident I can zero fault it and with a much quicker time, but I don't know if I can face that track anymore!

  3. I always feel a bit filthy playing this series. I'll gold all the first few sets of levels, arrogantly revving my engine at the traffic lights of trials bike accomplishment, but then I'll end up giving up on a track and leaving it silver, the first scuff on my before-perfect leathers, then smatterings of bronze, silver, gold everywhere else, then I'll spend an hour on that first silver track to try and regain my dignity but not only will I not get gold, my times will actually get worse as time goes on and then I realise I'm overthinking it, like that world-conquering baseball pitcher that was at the top of his game but suddenly lost his mojo and never got it back, and I'll feel inferior and I won't be able to play anymore and I'll know deep in my heart that I'll never be an extreme trials biker in real life and no matter how much he tries to hide it I'll always detect that hint of disappointment in my father's eyes, destined to remain.

    sorry, just accidentally neg'd this when I meant to pos

    edit: just pos'd two other posts to make up for it :)

    edit2: what I find miserable is seeing that one of my work mates has golded everything in the same amount of play time as i've *nearly* golded up to the end of the "normal" tracks :( Won't stop me though, I'll gold everything *eventually* (hopefully!).

  4. One thing a hell of a lot of players seem to miss is on long downhill (not slight angle, steepish) ramps is not to touch the accelerator, it actually slows you.

    Thats news to me! Any other pearls?

  5. I always like my comedy to have sentimental moments (e.g. scrubs), but in this the sentimentality to comedy ratio was right up the sentimentality end of the scale. The stuff that was "just for laughs" like the pond were the weakest bits, but I enjoyed the emotional aspect of the show - my wife was an absolute mess by the end of it! (She wouldn't necessarily have been so bad normally, but she was having "one of those days").

    I think it'll work well as a series, given more time to develop ideas and characters etc.

  6. :doh: I've just noticed I've got 1180 msp - annoying as I assume this will cost 1200. To rub salt into the wound, I have 20 msp pending on the rewards thing, but they only pay out when you hit 100 I think (I must have literally only been a couple of days out from having that 20 in the last payout!). Trying to minimize spending at the minute so getting the game with the msp I already had would have been perfect, now I guess I'll have to find some cheap points somewhere as there's no way I'm waiting another 4 months to play this!
  7. If you want to get into a race, head to the "race hangout" tab - needs some work that, I agree its not obvious.

    Just had a notice saying its going down for maintenance in 10 mins as well :(

    I've got it. But i don't know how to setup game. Is it done online or offline?

    *edit*

    ACRLauncher doesn't run. Its running in the background but no screen appears. I assume the configs done here.

    Windows 7 64bit.

    So it's not appearing in the system tray?

  8. I've sent you a friend request, though I'm not sure if I'll actually be able to take part in races from this laptop.

    edit: just tried a single player time trial - it was better than expected for an old laptop, but I think I'd get pasted using it for races! :)

  9. Who is the BBC commentator with DC?

    Of all the changes with the licensing etc., this is my biggest complaint. 15mins into Race 1 Q1 and he's already doing my head in already :(

    Did MB go to Sky?

  10. I'm sure I've asked this on here before but can't remember the answer...

    I need some tips on getting the 2 kills with emplaced weapons ribbon. What map and game mode is best?

    I got it on operation firestorm, up the dock end. You might not always get aircraft coming close enough there, but sometimes you can take down troops around the nearest capture point.

  11. Is the content (at least on the UK service) updated monthly? If so, is it monthly since release, i.e. about the 9th of every month?

    My 30 day trial ends on the 19th March but I'll keep it going if it feels like there's generally going to be enough new stuff to keep me interested every month...
