Hello, and a request.
Reply to this Post

Hello.

My name is Kyle, and I considered myself to be pretty good at F-ZERO GX. I said considered because I can no longer play it. Due to a workplace accident, my left thumb can't move a joystick with enough control to play any games anymore, and I am curious as to how good I was.

I'd like to compare lap times.

If anyone is up to a little goofing off, I have a request for you.

I'd like you to build a custom machine using the Optical Wing body, Garnet Phantom cockpit, and DevilFish RX booster.

Then, I'd like you to race that machine in the 5 Grand Prix, using no techniques. I never was good enough to learn them.

I played on Master, and always started 30th.

Thank you.

Kyle

You could swap the handling to be on the c-stick so your right hand can use it.  Not sure if that would be comfortable but it's an option.  I'm mainly playing dustforce right not but I could ask someone to try out that custom vehicle.

Regular Time Attack wasn't going well for me so here you go:

It's a pretty good machine for casual play: nice handling & good speed rentention.

 Quick question Kyle, what settings did you use when you played?

Hello Naegleria.

I'll try that. I was also thinking about a steering wheel/pedal combo.

Thank you!

Hello Figh16.

Thank you!

Hello superSANIC.

I never used her on time attack anyway. Smile

I just started watching. You drive her like I used to. *sniff* I've got to locate my times paper in my collection. I'll post my times as soon as I find it. I'm glad that she's working well with you.

Thank you!

Hello again Figh.

I used 91 percent everywhere except BBDH. I usually won with 70 percent. Never liked that track, even though I consider water tracks my homes in games and real life. I LOVE me some Monaco!

Thank you!

All right. I finally finished my write up. I've been swamped with stuff lately.

RUBY CUP

MCTR

I set my machine setting to 91%, my best total time was 1'02''658, and my best lap time was 17'548. I never learned how to slide like that.

CPSO

I set my machine setting to 91%, my best total time was 59'892, set on 3-24-14, and my best lap time was 16'560, also set on 3-24-14.

SOSS

I set my machine setting to 91%, my best total time was 1'58''842, and my best lap time was 35'602. Again, I never learned how to slide like that.

LLC

I set my machine setting to 100%, my best total time was 1'57''540, and my best lap time was 35'603. A slide and side attack combo to regain lost speed? Hmm.

AM

I set my machine setting to 91%, my best total time was 2'14''744, and my best lap time was 39'802, set on 12-5-10. I never trusted mines. First time I played this track on Master, on lap 3, I'm in the lead. I hit one of them, lost a chunk of energy, then some [email protected]$$ spun attacked me and retired me. Game Over. Anyway, you beat my times big time!

SAPPHIRE CUP

BBDH

I set my machine setting to 96% and my best total time was 1'08''784, and my best lap time was 20'398, with 70%. I barely beat your total time, but you easily beat my lap time.

PTAD

I set my machine setting to 96% and my best total time was 2'22'894, and my best lap time was 44'379, with 91%. You beat me.

GPMR

I set my machine setting to 91%, my best total time was 1'37''120, and my best lap time was 28'070. Another reason I don't trust mines. Seen many CPUs get ejected into the ceiling/floor. I love a Mobius. You beat me again.

PTLP

I set my machine setting to 91%, my best total time was 2'27''369, and my best lap time was 45'525. You beat me again.

MCSG

I set my machine setting to 96%, my best total time was 1'28'368, and my best lap time was 26'359. I don't trust mines here because I've seen CPUs boost and hit them, gain too much speed, and over shoot the landing! You also space fly a lot longer than I could. You beat me again.

EMERALD CUP

FFCK (looks like a bad word! ha ha!)

I set my machine setting to 91%, my best total time was 2'45''541, and my best lap time was 51'678. She's a little difficult to control on small cylinder tracks. You beat me again.

GPI

I set my machine setting to 91%, my best total time was 2'24''221, and my best lap time was 43'340, set on 4-13-14. You beat me again.

CPBD

I set my machine setting to 91%, my best total time was 3'02''355, and my best lap time was 56'044. You beat me again.

LHP

I set my machine setting to 96%, my best total time was 2'45''288, and my best lap time was 52'264. Nice shortcuts! Again, I barely beat your total time, but you beat my lap time.

BBO

I set my machine setting to 100%, my best total time was 2'47''114, and my best lap time was 52'075. I never had the guts to try that shortcut or suicide finishes. With my luck it'd go badly. You beat me again.

DIAMOND CUP

CTT

I set my machine setting to 91%, my best total time was 3'04''861, and my best lap time was 53'605. I never had the stomach for shift boosting. There were too many close calls in this race for me! XP You beat me again.

SOLS

I set my machine setting to 91%, my best total time was 2'14''558, and my best lap time was 39'840. More scary shift boosting. You beat me again.

FFU

I set my machine setting to 91%, my best total time was 2'05''028, and my best lap time was 37'285. Looks like she didn't want to shift boost for you this time. Again, I barely beat your total time, but you beat my lap time.

ADS

I set my machine setting to 91%, my best total time was 2'53''370, and my best lap time was 53'195, both set on 11-2-09. You beat me again.

PRS-lS

I set my machine setting to 75%, my best total time was 2'05''213, and my best lap time was 37'216. Nice save at the end! Good job at this hell of a track! This is the only track I couldn't win at on Expert or Master. I think my best was 4th on Expert and 6th on Master? This time, you beat my total and I just barely beat your lap time.

AX CUP

ASD

I set my machine setting to 96%, my best total time was 1'07''252, and my best lap time was 19'159.

OSMS

I set my machine setting to 96%, my best total time was 1'41'271, and my best lap time was 30'458, with 91%, set on 5-15-10. You beat me again.

PTCW

I set my machine setting to 96%, my best total time was 1'58''805, and my best lap time was 36'477. Another track she doesn't like. Again, I beat your total time, but you beat my lap time.

LTR

I set my machine setting to 91%, my best total time was 3'13''532, and my best lap time was 57'460. Nice shortcut on lap 3! I always wondered if that would work. Again, I beat your total time, but you beat my lap time.

GPS

I set my machine setting to 96%, my best total time was 3'49''594, and my best lap time was 1'10''535. You beat me again.

Other than our boosts being a little different, and you being a lot braver than I was, we flew pretty similar. But, I flew her for years, you flew her for a few hours and embarrassed most of my times.

What do you guys think?

Lastly, I'd like to thank superSANIC for his/her excellent playthough using the Optical Phantom-RX!

Hey I saw your topic and had to try out the custom machine you mentioned as well as Naegleria's comment about driving with c-stick. The custom machine steers well and can perform the advanced techniques including snaking. Also the easiest part of driving with the c-stick controller set-up is using the c-stick to drive lol. Adjusting my mind to the other buttons being flipped around was much harder. The set-up I came up with was: acceleration on D-pad Left, boost on D-pad Up, side attack on Z button, brake on B button, spin attack on Y button, c-stick for driving, and L and R remain the same. That might not be perfect but it's a good start though. With snaking I was able to get a 50.465 sec Twist Road run. I was using my normal settings at the time. Another option to help you play more comfortably would be to get one of the smash4 controllers that look like more of a knock-off XBox controller it might be more ergonomic for running an inverted set-up. Hope this is of any help
