Currently it's not looking too good for me. Nobody has got a clue what Error Code 01 means. To be honest I really don't see the point trying to get it repaired in any way or form when there are four different problems given to me:

- Problem with the lens on the disk drive (fzeroman's opinion)
- Disk drive broken down, or bad disk (adonf-jv from youtube's opinion, I've tried with two disks so Disk drive broken down seems more accurate)
- Disk drive not ready (kammedo from 64DD.net and YnT Project's opinion, he seems to believe this is the right one and suggests to "take your conclusions", as well as sweeping away fzeroman's opinion)
- Water damage on the motherboard???

Aren't these error codes listed in the manual? If so, Richard Taro can probably translate it for you. So far, I've encountered error code 03 and 21 but it's working now thank god. The manual is one of these things I didn't get but that was listed in the auction Sad.

From 64dd.net someone took a picture of the manual and suggested that the lens had failed, yet kammedo says that there is no lens.

there's no lens because it is a magnetic device.

but there's still a part that reads the info. it must be dirty or damaged. that was common with floppy disks.

What is "pulling a JKT"? Do you mean you stopped improving once you had the world record? Yeah I'll submit it soon along with all my other runs.

pulling a JKT means using NT instead of BH knowing that BH is overall better than NT. he did that because when he was champ he was so much better than anyone that he placed that handicap on himself to give people a chance. if you notice, he has several of his PRs set with NT. this also involves retiring and not having the skill to fight back when other good players appeared and beat him.

Very nice runs Chris and Philippe Smile. The Big Foot lap by Philippe is a world record but I got an 1'25"9 run a few months ago. I'll try to improve that soon with a video.

I changed the end dive strat on Big Blue 3 so you can just simply do a direct DTD-Z to the finish but you need some high speed at the jumpplate to make all the checkpoints count in the air. That first corner after the dive is very hard as you can see in my run.

that was a nice run.

the crash costed you a bit there. maybe you should do a weak DTD to take the corner better like in lap 1.

I got the Fire Field 2 world record with a new strat that I figured out. Looks pretty crazy for a relatively small improvement over Jose's run which is very good for a Night Thunder run. The zipper misses in the end were a bit unfortunate but overal this run was very decent in my opinion.

Fire Field 2 - 1'22"369 & 23"546

Here's my improved Big Foot run with a video as promised. The best way to drive this track is to just go Rambo-style and crash yourself through those turns.

yeah, not much room for other techs there. that's why i went that way since the start.

btw, you could have finished with a boostrailslide to sub 1'25 :p
