Whoooooooooo, finally finished my caber tossing skill game! There's not a ton of depth to the gameplay of it to be honest, but hopefully people will find it enjoyable just for the complete absurdity of it.

DAMN I am SO HYPE for this editor. I have barely touched the single player because of it, and I have yet to unlock the final two bikes ( donkey and another A license bike ) lol. Also I'm gonna start drawing tracks out on paper at work, I work in a callcenter so it's no trouble at all between calls. I can already promise my second track will be so much more amazing than my first one.

This game is worth 50€ in my opinion. Not that I would have been able to buy it day one for that price, but holy shit at the amount of content.

Sectus how are you able to take screenshots? Capture card? Make a video and put it on youtube!

Just go to Track Central, get tracks then press X to search for tracks. You can filter by gamertag and you can pick people on your friends list!

Yeah, I'm using a capture card. Maybe I'll record my track later. I was considering to make a video showing off my tracks and the best ones I've seen uploaded so far.

By the way, I don't think this is explained in any of the tutorials, but there's some codes you can do in track descriptions. For instance, this is the code for showing the Y button on the xbox controller:

Code:

%button_y%
Replace "y" with other buttons to show those instead. I'm not sure if you can show analog stick directions.

You can also use this code for adding linebreaks:

Code:

%linebreak%

Going around that corner after the steep jump into the building? I feel like I have to take it slow through there even though you want speed for the features coming up.

Why don't you have a leaderboard time on your own track?

My main criticism is what I see on most user created tracks, they claim it's a much easier difficulty than it really is, and this is no exception. With hard obstacles it's a hard track, not medium. And that s why it has been downloaded 116 times with only 5 people making it through (well, it's kinda long too).

As for the track itself, I enjoyed it. Several cool obstacles that came out of nowhere, which I like (though may be a bit frustrating on the first run). The only exception being the part where the rider is blocked by a hill in the front of him. Not cool.

Well I played your custom map although it had a different name then your post here. But it was under your GT so I assume that was it, it was actually really cool man! A lot of crazy jumps and one in particular.

I only failed 5 times on that track, but I wouldnt call it easy more medium.

Nah, it's the bit where you ride through a building and all you can see is wall. I messed up the jump first time and it was impossible to try and correct it because I couldn't even see my rider.

That corner did mess me up the first time, but I was okay with that one!

In Inferno 3 news, I just got it down to 55 faults from 259, which I'm pleased with! Got over those three wooden platforms towards the start on the FIRST ATTEMPT!

Would like to see a checkpoint before the railway track (last obstacle before the end), and it was maybe a little difficult to see the track and obstacles in the beginning. Otherwise, no complaints. Well, there are two obstacles that seem out-of-place, in that they are much harder than the others, but I guess that's by design?

Edit: by the way, I never heard the checkpoints (the sound they are supposed to make when you reach them). Is that right?

Agreed, hiding the rider is a big no-no in track design (or at least should be).

But in this track it's mainly a problem when you don't know about it, typically during the first run or when it's been awhile since you last played the track. And I really hadn't any problem with it on my second (4-fault) run.

weird thing I entered a 48 hr gold card I got from See5harp ( thx dude ) but sadly in the game I cannot select MP? I actually did play some MP last night on my previous 48 hr card. What could be wrong? :((

Did they switch off MP for 48 hour card users? That would suck :/

I found that to be the scond easiest extreme track, but definitely the longest.

Got the game today and everything from the presentation to the level design is so endearingly odd. It very challenging and frustrating but becomes so wacky with the background effects and driver deaths it throws me off guard. It's a bizarre game but pretty fun so far.

Oh it does. Try a battery pack that doesn't *quite* sit in properly and every now and then you get a "Controller Unplugged" alert on the screen. =D

I ended up stretching the springs in the controller to make sure the batteries stay connected but it did take about a dozen notifications before something had to be done. Imagine how frustrating it would've been in multiplayer. Lol.

They really need to work on sorting custom tracks. When I hit "highest rated this week" I expect tracks that have high star ratings from tons of people, not tracks that have been five starred by like just the creator and his buddy.

Choose most downloaded, they tend to be really highly rated also. And with tons of ratings.


Edit: I absolutely hate the tracks with altered physics. Fuck you Limbo track. Fuck you.

Thanks for the feedback guys and for giving it a shot:) It's easy to misjudge the difficulty on your own track with all the testing that needs to be done. Times required for medals are way off the mark too. I'm already working on my next one - I usualy give up in the middle of my first try with such editors (worldcraft back in the day was my first) but this thing has me hooked. Even more then the game itself (or in other words; I suck at it) The editor and track central alone are worth the asking price.

Tried your track MMarSu; great ambience in the cave section and lots of fun stuff happening. Camera placement needs some work though - it's not flowing properly. Gonna check other tracks tomorrow.

Serious GOTY contender, this.

I find the LIMBO track pretty easy. It's waaaaay easier than 1-bit Trip was, which was kinda similar

Oh, and question, does the 500 faults/half an hour limit apply over all the tracks in a tournament as well?

You can probably scroll to the end of the leaderboards for the extreme tournament and find out, but I would guess yes.

Camera shifts can either make or break a custom track. I've seen some excellent "cinematic" uses but even more times where the camera will abruptly shift to an awkward angle where it's hard to a) see or b) control your guy, leading to tons of crashes at what would normally be a manageable bump.

I had no patience for the first section of that track and gave up.

Ended up finishing the second Extreme track first.

Got through to hard tracks and over 100 medals. Thanks for the tip above that you don't unlock Platinum until you have 135 - didn't know why I wasn't getting any of those medals.

Hard levels are good for me, the right amount of challenging. I couldn't even start Extreme in Trials HD, and so far finding Hard easier on this game than the earlier one (maybe I'm just getting better).

Not had any GAF online races yet...
