Just one so far. Hopefully I can improve even more times.

Sand Ocean: Caterpillar

Lap 1: 22"32

Lap 2: 7"11

Lap 3: 6"89

Lap 4: 7"12

Lap 5: 6"90

Total Time: 0'50"34

That beats my record of 0'52"66 by 2.32 seconds. The main thing that improved in this run was the first lap. It was 24"xx, so I guess I found a way to improve it. I can go sub 0'50"00 at this rate, since I know I made mistakes. For one thing, I have yet to have every lap set at sub 7"00. I think Twin Noritta was with a setting of 85% in this run.

Also, I'm thinking about having my own guide about how to handle each course and some good strategies for getting good times. Of course, it's these strategies that got me here so far. I think new players would read it if it was made. I notice some courses don't have much information for setting good times.

Yeah, that would be great if you could write some course guides. If you post them here or PM then to a mod, they will get added to the guides section.

I got one new time a few days ago:

Red Canyon: Peak Jump

1'34"18  Twin Noritta  100%

Best lap: 18"11

Ok. I'll do that. Should I just do course guides or could I make a completely new topic with information other than courses, like what machines to practice with and techniques for better performance, like around sharp corners? 

By the way, I got some new times. It seems I've gotten really good this time.

Sand Ocean: Caterpillar

Lap 1: 22"30

Lap 2: 6"94

Lap 3: 6"87

Lap 4: 6"75

Lap 5: 6"84

Total Time: 0'49"70

Yeah, I did it. After several tries, I finally managed to go sub 50"00. Plus, my laps are below 7"00. I used the same machine and settings as last time.

 

Sand Ocean: Caterpillar II

Lap 1: 21"45

Lap 2: 7"08

Lap 3: 6"98

Lap 4: 7"02

Lap 5: 7"05

Total Time: 0'49"58

Yeah, I guess I wanted to do the other version as well. Once again, Twin Noritta at 85%, I think. It's somewhere in the 80-85% range. The only difference in this course is the first lap. The rest are like the same as the first course. I have some work to do to try to get these times under 7"00.

EDIT: Here's another:

Red Canyon: Junction II

Lap 1: 18"27

Lap 2: 15"23

Lap 3: 15"34

Lap 4: 15"13

Lap 5: 15"10

Total Time: 1'19"07

The main improvement here was actually the 4th lap. I actually found a way to complete the race, WITHOUT using the Pit Area running along the south-eastern tip of the track. I conserved enough energy to use just two Pit Areas in all five laps.

Write however much you want, the GPL section could do with more material.

Silence: Honeycomb Rink 2

 1'28"59  Night Thunder  37.50%

 21"19  - 16"86 - 17"09 - 16"68 - 16"77

Ok. I already know what to write, but I'll do some of the thread tomorrow. These techniques won't be as good as some you and others provided, but at least new players, as well as veterans, will get the idea of how to create their own techniques to get good times.

Errr, I just started GPL tt's... I tried Tradition Park with many people, and my best time was with the Big Fang >_>

I think my first lap was like 21'80, around there. My middle three laps were very consistent, 17'91, 17'90, 17'85, and my last lap, I think, was around 17'40, because instead of going to the pitstop, I just cut as much as possible.

What does it mean by improvements?  Is it like personal best or something?

If so, then i've been practicing on a few courses.  Now i'm not nearly as good as most of you out there, since I haven't mastered every shortcut or figured out drift cornering in this game, so bear with me.

My best run on Lightning: Volute, one of my favorite courses:

1'55"64 Twin Noritta 6.25%

24"30 - 22"77 - 22"81 - 23"30 - 22"46

And on Fire Field: Wreckage Circuit:

1:37"24 Twin Noritta 50%

22"75 - 18"53 - 18"77 - 18"58 - 18"61

But my best lap from a prior race is 18"45

 Yeah, this topic is for anyone to post their new personal records in. By the way, welcome to MFO. Smile

If you want to compare your best times to other players, the old MFO (http://old.mrfixitonline.com/List.asp?ListId=490), or Cyberscore (http://www.cyberscore.net/game-fzero-gpl.php) are the best places currently.

There's also a new F-Zero ranking site being made right now, hopefully that will be ready within the next month.

IAD 2: 1'54"75

Good run, set within about ten minutes of playing. I lost 4 tenths on lap 4, so I'll keep trying until at least sub 1'54"50.

Massive improvement on my time on Lightning:  Volute.  As soon as I realized that the shortcut I was taking had more, it was just a matter of practice.

Total Time:  1'27"44  Twin Noritta - 50%

18"68 - 17"26 - 17"10 - 17"24 - 17"16

He bien, Onizuka, ça fait plaisir de voir un français jouer à GPL !!!!

Personnellement, j'ai la plupart des records français, mais ça ne vaut rien pour moi étant donné que Shérif n'a pas trop cherché à battre ses temps(du moins sur les dernières coupes), et que les meilleurs français de MV ne jouent pas à GPL...

Enfin, comme je suis retiré des Fzero depuis des lustres maintenant (j'ai perdu toute ma technique), tu as tout le temps pour battre mes (modestes) temps, et redorer le blason des joueurs français de Fzero!!!

A+ (au fait, c'est quoi ton vrai nom ?)
