TNTA: Twin Noritta Time Attack competition + SG Spreadsheet
Reply to this Post

sup.

the other day i was watching ed's stream and he was playing GX. i noticed that he was doing really good despite not using advanced techniques with Twin Noritta and we even started talking about the game and how the competition goes. then, the situation about later F-Zero games being pretty complex to learn came up when i asked about if he knew advanced techs and we even ended up discussing how the original F-Zero was still popular for TA thanks to it's simplicity. i then proposed that it'd be fun if there was a TN-only competition or ladder for people to play since this ship can't use many advanced techs and it is very fast naturally.

so, i decided to make this topic with a little competition involving TN only in every track in the game. the only rules would be use max speed settings to make all times directly comparable. there wouldn't be any difference in lower settings since TN doesn't gain speed with snaking motions and it can't fly but 100% max speed is just to use the ship at its best.

i got a MCTR time already the other day on stream. 59"805: www.twitch.tv/uchihasda/c/2024049

i have a CTT time that beats the staff already but i think i'll redo that for this later.

i think this should be a good way to get new people into the game. the only advanced moves you'd need is MT and MTRS and the rest is just basic racing. no side attacks, long MTS or weird stuff needed (the ship can't even do them)

 

edit: i've decided to expand this competition into including the Spreadsheet of all 41 ships VS the Staff Ghosts made by Yoshifan since the idea behind this competition is the base of that spreadsheet but extended to every ship. you can check out the spreadsheet and try to compete for the best known time in tracks that don't have one or beat an existing record. note that only times with videos can be added there so be sure to record your time and replay if you plan to add your record.

 I posted a time of 2'01''165 at Multiplex during my attempted competition years ago. I've done a couple of Twist Road runs with non custom machines in the past year. I have my runs with Little Wyvern and Hyper Speeder on video

Little Wyvern - 1'01'728 - www.youtube.com/watch

Hyper Speeder - 59''772 - www.youtube.com/watch

Here's a few more that I decided not to upload

Rolling Turtle - 1'02''063 -  img138.imageshack.us/img138/3998/imag0170hu.jpg

Rainbow Pheonix - 1'01''441 (Image is gone for some reason)

Also I did a FLap with Space Angeler on Sonic Oval of 13''664. I would be impressed if somebody manages to beat it (no MTRS used)

I should be able to try out some TN time attacks next weekend. Also I hope one day to race CGN on SpeedRunsLive.

 Edit: After taking a look at your Twist Road run UchihaSasuke, I'm positive that beating the staff ghost can be done without any MTS'ing or MTRS'ing. I'll definitely give Twist Road a try first.

i improved that run like 2 days later and i passed the ghost before the MTRS. that confirms it.

i'll make a vid of that in a few days.

 This'll be fun. Lately I've been slammed, though, so I'm not sure when I'll be able to get some runs in. =/

I'm pretty sloppy with this machine, but at least I beat these two staff ghosts by a little bit.

Finally got around to do this, starting with Twist Road predictably

Twist Road: 58''944 (26''026 - 16''772 - 16''146)

https://imageshack.us/scaled/large/442/twinnorittamctrsub59.jpg

First lap I missed the side of the boost panel before the mini drop off, so this can be improved by .200 at best. Second lap is nearly flawless. There was one boost I could have lost a bit less speed, and there were no side boost panels in the final stretch. 16''500 would be a perfect lap I think. Final lap was going great until I messed up MT boosting my final boost before the very last boost panel. I messed it up, couldn't get the boost off before hitting the panel. And the MTRS was not optimal. 15'950 or so would truly be a flawless final lap. So maybe in a humanly perfect run, sub 58''500 down to about 58''300 would be possible.

Video will come soon. I won't try to improve it for a while, even if someone (coughcgncough) does beat it. Not sure which track I'll do next, probably a simpler one or one already done by others here.

Got three more decent runs done today

Split Oval: 55''150 (21''069 - 17''688 - 16''393) imageshack.us/a/img545/8837/twinnorittasplitoval.jpg  -  www.youtube.com/watch

Barely beat Uchiha's time. I hit an extra boost panel in the first lap, but your second lap was just flawless while I messed up with some of the MTs. But I made that up with a wicked third lap. 54''500 perhaps do'able?

Trident: 2'57''336 (1'17''597 - 48''950 - 50''789) imageshack.us/a/img560/4139/twinnorittatrident.jpg - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wH3vqGmm6Fk&feature=youtu.be

Great first two laps, with an unintentional SB in the second lap. The third was going very well until I hit the wall on the final slight corner, probably costing me well over a second. I noticed that my MTs in the first lap cost me a bit of time. Gotta see if MT'ing from low 1300 is worth it or not. 2'55 ish should be reachable

Screw Drive: 1'02''686 (27''127 - 17''798 - 17''761) imageshack.us/a/img5/3011/twinnorittascrewdrive.jpg  -  www.youtube.com/watch

First lap was near flawless, hitting the side of the panel. Got a SB at the end of the second lap. Only a few very minor MT boosting hiccups.

Videos are up in my channel. Will provide links once I update the video information.

Edit: It's a little funny how the OP post mentions that TN can't MTS very well (it also has a terrible MTRS), which is true, yet me and Uchiha both use it in Twist Road. But it really does take an expert of traditional time attacking to know when it's beneficial to use a weak MTS.
