  1. Hard could be a bit intimidating to newbies though. I'm good as-is and don't mind the endurance games like this and Space Hawk
  2. Oh.... I forgot about that restriction, that explains why I couldn't get into the cemetery with 3 dudes left. Huh. I actually really like that,might have to try again. If my thumb can recuperate sufficiently.
  3. 15,350 - hard Can't say that hard is all that different than medium. Got hosed by control glitches and a hyperactive cop right at the gates. Think he got me 5 times? Highest number of people I managed to clear for bonus was 19, probably could squeeze out a few more, but starting to press against dawn at that point.
  4. Yep, that's why I stopped after I hit the prior record. It's just very, very boring since you're only making around 1k points per day at most once you get past the point where the bonus is possible. @Rickster8... thus my prediction I was only getting +1 bonus on this one. 🙂
  5. Play on a lower slope to get used to it. 15 requires you to have it very memorized and will be frustrating to just jump in on.
  6. It's not that, it just feels "off" like it's not rendering every frame or something. Mostly though, I think I just need to start out slower until I have the course fully memorized again. I recall this being a game of inches and whether you setup for a gate at a 1/8th or 1/16th angle being huge, so I know we were playing it with that kind of fidelity when we were playing over and over again. For now, I'll settle for a run where I hit fewer trees.
  7. Hard to say exactly what it's doing, but it's not remotely as smooth as I remembered it being on the console. I'm definitely finding myself having difficulty setting up for the gates, but that could just be the older-than-dirt, no-reflexes thing. 15 is a pretty aggressive slope. Going to take me a while to remember the course. 🙂
  8. Okay, conceding this one... Took two shots at it and got in the 50s and 60s, but now nauseous again, so enough for this game. 🙂
  9. Don't recall what the specific times were on that specific course.
  10. Nice! This was another family favorite of ours, will be fun to get back into it, haven't played the original version in many, many years.
  11. Dunno. On the one hand, I only played that last game because Dreadnaught Factor was annoying me so much. On the other hand, I'm pretty sure 100k is doable, and my last game didn't end satisfyingly, so we'll see. 🙂
  12. Not saying we don't play a 2nd version of a game, even in the same season, just preferably not on the exact same week. I'd like to see us mix in more 'unusual' games for HSC bonus like Football (highest score, or widest win margin), or a timed run on Tarmin, etc, so it doesn't have to be the usual suspects. As far as Utopia goes, no magic to it just need to read that thread in the programming forum and understand how the scoring works.... 🙂
  13. Yeah, a lack of common sense and self control can overcome many an obstacle. 🙂
  14. Suggestion for consideration: Bonus games should not be for the same game as the main game on a given week. I don't mean to create extra work for the moderator, but it's fun to have another game to play just for yucks as we did with Utopia. It's less fun to slog through the same game again like Dracula on hard. I'm totally fine also playing Dracula on hard, but would recommend it be deferred to a future week/season. So the next time an idea pops up like level 7 on Dreadnaught Factor, just note it's a good idea and file it away for future reference. I'm fine with a 'split' week like with Auto Racing, with even weight to both courses, since someone might be frustrated by a specific course.
  15. We knew you could that patch, great job!! I presume Jacob will get around to mailing them all out to us sooner or later... 😁
