Finally got this last night, and it's not going well. Not going well for my OCD, I mean. I'm unable to complete a track without getting Gold. Even if I fall off right near the end, I must press the Back button to do a flawless run. Also, trying to beat your friends' scores is too addictive.

Also, is that 'Get a strike at a Midnight Bowling Game' Achievement referring to the pins you see beneath the jump on the last medium track?

Yes. It isn't part of the run though, so complete the track then go back to try and get that.

Yep. Took me about 20 minutes which isn't too bad when compared to many. Here's a hint...

You need to get UNDER that jump not over it...

Interesting.

I bought it last night and played till 1am. I am very tired now. The thing that was keeping me from going to bed was the fact I had all Golds, except two Silver tracks. Oh, and Kerraig's times.

Disciple, what's your Gamertag?

Hardcore.

I was stuck on one bit for ages, eventually I got past it, triggered the checkpoint and crashed. I pressed back instead of B; I thought I was going to lose my mind.

You don't NEED to get under it as I did it by going over.

WELL...(slightly bigger spoiler)

I found it much harder going over, by going under I found the momentum and fling from my ragdoll man gave me more oomph into the pins - as I had more horizontal speed than I could manage from going over

Also Murray. It's a good game to take a break from, go back to, and try again. I did that recently and smashed some old records.

I would also highly recommend adding meatball from this thread and checking out his replays / checking out the replays from the top leaderboard times. It gives you a good idea of what to do, and when, and that will then transfer across the rest of your gameplay - it will make you better.

Watch a few runs a few times; and even if you can't do the fancy tricks the basic stuff is good to learn.

Then - try it yourself!

Yeah, I've been doing that actually. I watched MotiVater's replay for the first Medium track, and beat his time!

I'll add Meatball later, if that's ok Meatball?

Yeah, please do :angry:

Let us know how my times compare to Kerraig's if you would too please. That's a couple of times now I've seen it mentioned that he's a bit handy on this. I may have to fire him a invite for some more competition.

I don't think he's got a score above yours to be honest.

I'm still pleased with one track where I'm second behind you! I say second...I'm back in 20,000th or summat, you're about 200 summat :P

Anyone here making tracks if so add me up as I love seeing the devilish creations people come up with.

I have a track called 'work in progress' on there that I've had some good feedback on. Not finished with the aesthetics but it's playable, and pretty tough. Add me up if you fancy a go, GT is criminal mikey. Same goes for all you other Triallers.

They said they can't change the way sharing works as they can't afford dedicated servers to handle the load, I think.

Ah well, maybe their sales figures might have changed that or MS might decide to offer them some support since it's clearly something which would further enhance the reputation of Xbox Live? We shall see in due course I suppose.

Been having a gander at the RedLynx official forums regarding the DLC and this pretty much summarises it:

Definitely no server-side track sharing / rating / etc.

Very unlikely to be 800 MSP, the insinuation seems to be 400

Loads of new objects / textures for the track creator, need to buy DLC to play user tracks with new content

Separate patch to address various bugs simultaneously with DLC

Separate global leaderboards for "original game" (the current one) and "all" levels.

Unknown number of tracks likely 50/50 medium and hard with a couple of easy / extreme thrown in

Still no release date yet though :D

Would of got it at 800, if it is 400 then I will be made up.
