New Runner Has 2 Questions, involving ghosts and MTS!
Reply to this Post

 1

Can someone point me in the direction of the EASIEST TO UNDERSTAND AND BEST video or text tutorial about how to MTS?
I have watched 3 videos and followed 1 text guide on this ewebsite, and I believe that I understand it 100%, it's actually not that complicated, but being NEW at the game and the F-Zero Franchise, I find it VERY hard for me to re enact...

I know there are staff ghosts in this game, and I know that there are mods for this game. Is there already a way, or is anyone looking into a way to take your ghost file of yourself racing, and share it with someone else and then they can copy it to their game and they would be able to race against your ghost? Even if we had to replace the staff ghosts, or replace our OWN ghost to add THEIRs to our game. Anyone know about this?

 Are you using the right machines to MTS? Black Bull & Great Star are good non-custom choices.

Here's a simple example of MTS-chainng: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jwm1JDGSw9U

 

You can share ghosts pretty simply if you have a softmodded Wii with GCMM (Gamecube Memory Manager). No one really goes through the trouble of uploading their ghosts usually. I have some of my record ghosts here if you want to try it out: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0Bw05QGJvgsx4U3hsZlpjRzhjdFU

I can't remember exactly if there's hex-editing needed between ghosts of different regions. Pretty sure it's not needed, but if it is, it's as simple as finding the region code at the start of the file & renaming it.

I actually didnt have ANY machines unlocked except for the starting ones. But the first machine I unlocked was black bull, and RIGHT AWAY I got the hang of MTS lol. took me around 2 minutes to get it working with black bull, and then for the next 3 - 4 hours or so I practiced. I am trying to beat the story mode now, but for some reason when I get to part "2" where captain falcon trains, I collect all the gold things, and pass the finish line, but it doesnt unlock the next level... it only unlocks the next difficulty of the same level... Do I need to beat ALL difficulties in order to unlock the next level? Because I have only beaten the first 2 difficulties of stage 2, I am having a LOT of trouble beating the 3rd, I always run out of time by like 2 seconds, or I miss like 2 or 3 gold things.

Anyways, thanks SO much for all the info! 

I am so happy to have learned that it is possible to share ghosts. I would LOVE to race against peoples ghosts who ARENT in the top like 10 speedrunners of this game.

Any specific speedrunners you could recommend me to watch, that ARENT top runners? I am looking for people who are better than me, but not the best, so I can slowly work my way up the leaderboards. I like to have specific times to challenge my self to beat, and I think the best way for me to do that, is to find someone a bit better than I am, and try to beat their time. Onc eI beat them, then I want to find someone else who is a bit better than me, and do the same... etc.



Thanks again! ;]

P.S - If you happen to find any more peoples ghosts online anywhere, or you find a place that has some, PLEASE let me know ;]

 I recommend these playlists. It'll take you some time to get to this point, but they both demonstrate good use of MT, MTS with good and not too difficult strategies

Thanks again for such USEGUL info!!! Any idea about my question in the first paragraph of my last reply? The question about story mode not progressing any further than stage 2?

After you beat a Story chapter on Normal (the first difficulty), the next chapter should unlock... in the shop. You then have to go to the shop to buy the chapter before you can play it.

 So I'm still going through story mode. Thanks for all the info guys! The only trick I've learned so far is MTS. What is the next most important trick to learn?

 The most important technique is quick turning, even more so than MTSing. If you haven't yet, check out my guide

don't forget MT (Momentum Throttle)

it makes as much difference or even more than Quick Turns and works everywhere where you can go fast and benefits every ship.

also, here's a memory card file with several of my ghosts and replays. it's a bit outdated now but most times and ghosts are about the same as in the vids: mega.nz/#!v4RHTCIQ!TcepZCh1DeO9n_xnVzeDuJBXP8I7WPTAajsrWCAC3TQ

you'll need Dolphin's memory card manager to get the files out but it's pretty easy to use. just open the memory card with the manager. once you extract each file, you can put them in an SD card and use GCMM to put them on a real memory card.
