Does the right difficulty switch have any affect on Skiing?

 

I just read the manual.  Right A puts trees in front of the gates.   LOL

 

I've never played with the right on A so this will definitely be interesting.

Dragster 6.84 Doesn't seem like a huge difference but in this game, hundredths of a second are key.

ENDURO  611.9 / DAY 4

 

Just to let S.BAZ, Jacob and all participants in this HSC know, my Enduro cartridge was made in Brazil by Atari / Polyvox in Silver Label. It's the cartridge which I'm using to play this Activision game on my ProSystem VCS console.

I know exactly how you feel. Give me a spaceship to fly around and stuff to shoot and I'm golden, but sports and racing titles (and pretty much any other genre of game that doesn't involve blowing things up) are definitely not my forte. :lol: I did give two of the three games my best shot tonight though, and I spent about an hour trying to get a time in Dragster that was below 6 seconds and another hour and a half trying to get below 30 seconds in Skiing. I did eventually succeed in both, and now that I have I'm pretty sure that I never want to play either of those games competitively ever again and I'll be sticking to practicing Enduro for the rest of this round. I'll need the practice too, because man am I ever terrible at that game. Anyway...

 

 

Dragster (B/B Difficulty, Game 1): 5.97

Skiing (B/A Difficulty, Game 5): 29.75

Skiing (5BA) - 28.44

This should be a fun round. I remember playing Skiing a couple years ago in the HSC, and it probably ended up being my favorite round. I haven't played Dragster much , but I could see getting pretty addicted to it considering how short the games are. Enduro is an old favorite, but I will probably end up playing it the least just because it's a lot longer than the other two.

Question for S.BAZ: Looking at the high score screenshots for Skiing it appears that the trees are in different positions for different people. Are the tree locations randomly generated each time you start the game up, so that some people will get easier courses than others depending on where the trees end up?

Edit: I checked it out for myself and sure enough every time you use the Game Select switch to go to Game 5 you get not only different tree positions but the flag positions change as well. I tried a few different courses and some are definitely faster and have more direct routes with less trees in the way than others, so I guess you just have to keep using the Game Select switch to go to Game 5 and keep trying different courses until you get a favorable one with the most direct route to get the best score.
