trex7 (Jan 07, 2007)
Found a Microsoft Freestyle Pro Gamepad at a Boxing Day Sale. (the one that tilts like the Gravis Destroyer but much better. Since when is Wii new?). So I bought two, havenâ€™t seen them in stores for three or four years now. I think they were designed specifically for MCM2.
Not as fast as a good stick mounted on your chair but very cool.
Anyway pulled out my track CDâ€™s and realized I have between 300 and 500 early tracks here from between 2000 to about 2004.
Some good some bad, some just plain incredible like Scumbikerâ€™s â€œTwinStatesâ€.
This is probably my all time favorite. Not for everyone; definitely not a beginners track but it looks sooooooooo good. Iâ€™m sure Iâ€™ve done several thousand laps on it over the years. It looks even better now with the digital vibrancy control turned up a bit on your nVidia card. I know that Scum used â€œ3d Studio Maxâ€ for his disp maps and colouring.
Scum claimed a 2:20 was a good lap on a 250 when he release it; personally with a 2:10
Iâ€™m just getting around the track. Itâ€™s a tough track to get a clean lap on. I generally make about 1 in 5. My best lap ever was 2:02. The best all time is 1:57 as far as I know. After a few laps you will probably wonder how this is possible. Someday maybe someday I will break 2 minutes.
I really get a kick out of the objects on this track, I think they say a lot about who Scum
was. Unfortunately as you may or may not know Scum was killed in a motorcycle accident about a year after he released this track. I think itâ€™s a work of art.
Ran a 2:07 last night.
I like a 600 power curve 3 and suspension set soft on this track but the 426 Yamaha looks the best; hmmm a 426 with the 600 power curve might just be the perfect bike here.
Will be uploading all of Scumâ€™s stuff in the near future; about 25 tracks.
