Thanks for participating! All replays published!
afullo @2019-03-27 14:42:46 UTC
Thanks for extending the deadline, I just uploaded a replay, even if it is not more than a scoreboard filler...
Duplode @2019-03-26 23:38:33 UTC
Well, I didn't actually have a replay on my pocket I just had thought about racing today, before finding the race had closed. (I did have an extra session a few minutes ago, but I couldn't even improve my own time, let alone threaten Seeker...)
Cas @2019-03-26 22:23:47 UTC
Oh! Yes, I think I should add time to the deadline and would be good to also display the current UTC time there too. I can extend the race a little time this month so you guys can post your replays.
Duplode @2019-03-26 18:23:00 UTC
Yup -- no matter how many times I race here, I also keep making this deadline mixup... Cas, could you please switch the format of the deadline field to "2019-03-25 23:59:59", rather than "2019-03-26"?
Overdrijf @2019-03-26 13:30:24 UTC
O, wait, yeah, the deadline is before the date mentioned, not after. Oops...
afullo @2019-03-26 10:40:11 UTC
I was unable to play here this month... that will be for the next race.
Overdrijf @2019-03-22 14:54:03 UTC
O, right, we only have a few days left here. Gotta go race, gotta go race...
Cas @2019-03-21 08:05:59 UTC
You guys really put this to the maximum!
Duplode @2019-03-20 03:49:21 UTC
This track demands precision. Seeker's 1:36.75 is a really strong time...
Seeker1982 @2019-03-18 21:41:44 UTC
@Overdrijf: I'm quite human but i'm a 2e (multi-exceptional) and a long-time Sim-Racing Guy (I would be racing in Assetto Corsa etc if I still had a decent steering wheel etc.)
Cas @2019-03-15 23:07:35 UTC
Replays verified. Scoreboard updated!
Cas @2019-03-14 23:50:34 UTC
Ha, ha! Amazing, isn't it? Alright, replay verified!
Overdrijf @2019-03-12 10:09:14 UTC
What is this madness? And how does Seeker NoRH it that fast? Is he even human?
Cas @2019-03-09 18:44:35 UTC
Perfect, mate! Verified!
sd4000 @2019-03-09 08:17:08 UTC
Hi Cas! Thank you for the info. I uploaded another replay. This one schould be fine. Greetings.
Cas @2019-03-08 02:54:11 UTC
Welcome, sd4000! Thanks for participating. Precisely, checking your replay, I found that you've driven on top of a tunnel. This is currently not allowed. Sorry, I know it's not obvious. I've been considering changing this rule in the future, because it's the #1 reason why I have had to reject replays in the past. If there's agreement, I could change that starting next race, but this time, I'll ask you to please post another replay
Cas @2019-03-08 02:42:12 UTC
R4K is inspired in Paleke's WSC, the first tournament I participated in, so rules are similar. As long as you remain on or over the track and you execute all stunts, it's fine. You can use speed-ups. It's part of the skill. In WSC, some things were allowed that are not permitted in R4K, though, such as driving on top of a tunnel or going through a slalom brick.
Seeker1982 @2019-03-07 22:05:00 UTC
I had a little time to manage another NoRH-lap which is slightly slower but this time I'm sure it's according to the OWOOOTT-Rules (or how it's spelled): I drove through the corkscrew and during exiting said corkscrew I had a minor jump and therefor could accelerate in mid-air - but OWOOOTT is not as strict as GAR isn't it?
Cas @2019-03-07 19:47:57 UTC
Seeker! I was able to read your message, but now for some reason, the messaging system failed. Trying to fix it. I should actually make a new system. This one isn't very reliable. Anyway, don't worry; as you said, it was just one frame. I've had my share of that before
Seeker1982 @2019-03-07 16:16:31 UTC
Cas: I thought I checked my replay, but I'm afraid your right: for 1Frame I'm completely off-track at 0:56,35. I can only assure you that it wasn't on purpose
Cas @2019-03-07 02:46:20 UTC
Seeker! Just checked your newest replay and there seems to be an off-track moment. Please do check it just in case.
Seeker1982 @2019-03-06 21:32:58 UTC
I just send in a new NoRH-time. It's very close but it should be valid. It's almost as fast as Dreadnauts current RH-time
Cas @2019-03-02 03:24:01 UTC
Thank you, guys! Yes, the jump that starts horizontal instead of with a ramp. You are allowed to magic-carpet it or to go around the second ramp, if you prefer.
Seeker1982 @2019-03-01 21:55:14 UTC
very good time but I managed to improve mine to a 1:33,x
dreadnaut @2019-03-01 21:40:59 UTC
A last one before bed
Seeker1982 @2019-03-01 21:31:58 UTC
now my turn at a RH-Lap - 1:36,20
dreadnaut @2019-03-01 20:49:31 UTC
Possibly for five minutes, dreadnaut takes the lead!
Seeker1982 @2019-03-01 20:44:52 UTC
I just send in the 1st replay -I think that not doable jump was/is the 3rd for which you had to magic carpet in order to fly over the gap, and its immediatly followed by a split road section
Seeker1982 @2019-03-01 20:32:31 UTC
Question: that not doable jump: is that the "jump" there a split road sections immediatly follows?
Cas @2019-03-01 00:00:36 UTC
And the race starts!!!!
dreadnaut @2019-02-26 20:41:54 UTC
Oh, can't upload a replay yet, I was too excited! The cork u/d requires serious brakes, but I think it's fine. Skipping it, you get a longer powergear stretch which is less intersting, but one more "oh, how do I land on this banked road without flying out?" bit.
dreadnaut @2019-02-26 20:17:13 UTC
I think one exception is enough But I'll go and try the track first!
Cas @2019-02-25 06:28:29 UTC
Also, guys, let me know if you think it'd be more fun to also allow to overfly the spin (cork up/down). Unless most of you want this allowed and I approve it, it remains not permitted.
Cas @2019-02-25 06:23:59 UTC
Alright, I don't want to change the track. I like it as it is, so I'm setting a special rule on this race: you are allowed to go off track immediately after the 3rd jump (the one that's non-OWOOTable) but only to quickly return to the track afterwards. See details in the Special Rules section at Current Race
Cas @2019-02-25 06:20:35 UTC
Uh, oh... just realised the track is not OWOOT-friendly. I'll have to retouch it...
Cas @2019-02-25 06:18:54 UTC
Alright! New track uploaded. Race to start on 1st March
