 Welcome! I suppose my favorite character is Captain Falcon, but Phoenix is pretty sweet as well.

If you've come here to post your times and learn how to get better, you can check out the articles that have been posted here. There are even more resources than what this website has, so just mention which game you want to get better at and certainly someone will direct you to those resources.

Welcome, ShadowDarkness

 

Here is a brief explanation on all the advanced techs: http://fzerocentral.org/viewtopic.php?t=463

I recommend you to just play the game first and maybe even finish all the story mode chapters on all difficulties and beat all the staff ghosts, so you get a feel for the game, but you could also already start to implement a few techs there.

the first 2/3 techniques you should learn are quickturning (QT) and momentum throttle (MT) and general diving.

Quickturning will let you turn very sharp without losing much speed, so that's what you want to use to go fast through every sharp turn without hitting walls.

For dives, just by turning your machine down and pulling it up again to land flat will get you higher speeds, especially if you combine them with sideattacks.

Momentum Throttle lets you maintain high speeds for a much longer time, which will come very handy if you go extremely fast through dives or shiftboosts.

 

As soon as you feel comfortable with those techniques and got them in your muscle memory, you can start learning harder tricks like shiftboosting (SB) and momentum turbo sliding (MTS).

Shiftboosts are all over any track and when stacking them up you can get insane speeds. However you should still be able to control your machine.

Momentum Turbo Sliding let's you go very fast through some wide curves, but as soon as you exit your speed will drop down. It takes some time to get used to it and to learn to exit them well.

There are also some machines that can do a technique called MTS chaining, where you chain multiple MTSes together to go faster on a straight, but don't bother with that, as this is a very difficult technique to master.

 

There are also video tutorials by Naegleria, which I highly recommend you to check out to see how the tricks are done: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL5UD8kOhQuv8fjXUpjDl2vSEHuqOOrBw_

Also there is a F-zero Central Discord, where you can ask any questions or just hang around: https://discord.gg/0SjuQvhyEztsO9Qg

Welcome ! My favorite pilot is Beastman, and favorite non-custom vehicles are Hyper Speeder, Deep Claw and Twin Noritta. Favorite track is ADS (gotta love to dive~) and favorite custom machine is Cosmic Cannon-G4.

As for how to post videos : if you're looking to put your videos on the leaderboard, it used to be possible, but no more. You'd have to ask a mod to do it. But for now, you can just copy-paste the link to said video. Even if the forum will not automatically register it as a link, we will be able to copy-paste it in the toolbar. Smile
