this little game is fantastic!

you can get the demo here
http://www.madskillsmotocross.com/

its a great side-scrolling physics based motocross game, you have to time your jumps and move your weight around to get the good times, its awesome!

I was quite actively into finding good 'racing' games based on good physics and a long time ago I saw this in development, I can't remember what reminded me but I searched for it again and its finished and playable

its soo satisfying when you get the jumps right.

a few tips

your bike will go faster when your leaning back and on the throttle pulling a small wheelie, the wheels do have rolling resistance.

if your very skilled, you can land on your back wheel off the jumps and on the throttle and get good drive out of the jump

i've tried most of that, but if you go too fast on that track you miss the "boost" zones, so it screws you're time.

Rich, post a vid of a decent run please, i need to see what i'm doing wrong!!

Nick, you will love this game, the way the bike moves and reacts to bumps and jumps feels just perfect! get the demo downloaded

I'm running about 41 sec flat on climb that hill and can only really see small places to improve a few tenths. I could maybe see me being able to get a middling 39 at tops!

glad i'm not the only one in the low 40.s!
i think Rich must take a route other than the "standard one" so that he can hit the other speed boost and clear the huge canyon?

ive tried that, I scrub off too much speed to make the extra boost worth it...

any other times on other tracks? they should be super-close..

sweet music, the first track. I'm about 52.44s
Killing me softly, 2nd track 42.84
Nitro - 13.18

I take it everyone is using the little spacebar 'boost' thing? It fires from the bottom of the bike so when you are leaning forward it boosts you along...

Also front flips are your friend ;)

I seem to take a different route each time lol, at the end of the lap I use the last boost and one mid jump which clears the big bombhole thing and lands between the first and second rollers at the start of the lap. The hardest bit is timing when you fire the boost as you land so the bike doesn't snap in half :lol:

That 33 was a complete fluke, I can do 34's quite often but any faster will be complete luck!

Chris Doughty
25-08-2010, 08:38 AM
aha, thats why, no im not using that....

lets do a 'no tricks' times... no spacebar

jim76
25-08-2010, 08:43 AM
thought the space bar wass only on the Nitro course?! that explains it!!

Is everyone using the arrow keys or different controls??

Chris Doughty
25-08-2010, 10:12 AM

Yea thought so, it jut giving me finger cramp I'm pushing that up arrow so hard!

jim76
25-08-2010, 08:08 PM
am i the only one who doesn't seem to have the spacebar boost? only on the nitro track for me.
Rich, have you got the full retail version?

Richard Lowe
25-08-2010, 09:24 PM
No demo version here :confused:

I can do 40.48 without the boost, I'll get FRAPS fired up either tonight or tomorrow and get a video :)

jim76
25-08-2010, 09:41 PM
yeah, i'm pretty similar with no boost. pressing space for me on that track does nothing :(

Richard Lowe
28-08-2010, 10:38 PM
I'm down to 30.93 now with boost on the last track :thumbsup:

Youtube video uploading, I'm sure sub 30 is possible :D

Recorded with FRAPS then uploaded straight to youtube, the demo version of FRAPS only lets you record 30s but thats enough for yours :)

I've not got any option to view the replay in the game :confused: Did you use time attack or arcade mode?

The only option I have for a replay is straight after a run in arcade mode. Unless I'm missing something.

I leave FRAPS running in the background, do some runs then when I get a good one click on replay at the end and start FRAPS recording, simples :D

I think its space with the default controls, but you can only use it on the last few tracks.

You can also change the controls under options.

my best is a 39.59

I wonder if there is any way to transfer the 'ghost' riders to race each others best times?

Possibly on the full game if you can save replays?

Either the bike needs more power or the jumps need to be closer together, it's a bit dull otherwise :(

Sub 30 second boost run, finishing in style :lol:
