Andrew A's game on Double Sprint Andrew A
1,312 less players than on Riding School (btw), So, yea - a summery breezy walk in the park..

Cue The Isley Brothers.. (some people think it was Jimi H who played the guitar lead lines on that song, but he had left the band by then - with a year or two of anonymity still ahead of him, before he arrived in a properly appreciative London, under the managership of Chas Chandler - ex bass player of The Animals, and himself pretty much broke at that point).

It was Ernie Isley who played those guitar lines - being totally in the thrall of Jimi (but without the - ahem - same level of creativity?).

If anyone is interested.

Just because I heard the song today for the first time in years

Hello All.
Was a good game, shame that is not ported to the new device Android, iOS. Now playing of TrialsFrontier. (translated via online translator)
Vega's game on Jurassic Parking Vega
My comment on Clay Serpent is -Unquestionably the hardest I have ever worked for a silver medal in all my years of Bike or Die -.

Well... not anymore! My efforts to obtain silver here far supersede my efforts on Clay Serpent.

After 20,064 tries and 591 completed (ridiculous for a map this difficult to complete), I have decided to yield the gold and move on.

Make no mistake... I gave this my very best shot! This silver medal is my greatest defeat in BoD thus far.

How? Because my second best time is 37.12 and I was gunning for gold here. This was a breakthrough run and I missed it by ONE FRAME!!
Vega's game on Jurassic Parking Vega
My new 36.76 run (black bike) against 6 of my best failed runs that made me want to crush my Treo with a mallet.

Red bike comes close but that's the one where I got horribly robbed with a tire straight through the red flag after the yellow truck.

Yellow bike had a fighting chance for a bit too. This is pretty cool to watch

Vega's game on Jurassic Parking Vega
36.76 (black bike) against 6 of my best completed runs that would all qualify for bronze.

Interesting to see a couple bikes come from behind to catch up to the pack.

Also interesting to see how confidently the black bike pulls away from the pack in the final stretch.

Vega's game on Downhill Madness Vega
Well folks... (yes, the massive audience that frequents this forum ) I am now the only person to hold a place on the first page of every level in the Standard Pack. That is to say... a TOP 10 rank.

Now, it is worth noting that this level is my worst rank at #9, but I get bronze points since everybody and their grandmother is tied on this silly map.

My worst points on any standard level is equivalent to 7th place at 103 points.

And I am not even finished...
BikerBrian vs. Vega Vega
There is an unfair glitch that lends credence to a zany conspiracy that this map plays favorites.

Freeze the play at 11.02 and then drag to 11.06.

Brian's tire moves 1 more frame and THEN touches the flag at 11.04 exactly with mine.

THEN! my tire does NOT move even a smidge after 11.04, but my clock runs open til 11.06. All the while, Brian's clock is frozen at 11.02

Both mine and Brian's time should have been final at 11.04.

Verily, verily, I say unto you. Go ahead everybody. Have a looksee for yourselves.

Andrew A's game on Sinus Mountains Andrew A
Mystical.. (though a bit of a slow start)

No I haven't been playing this level all this time! Just been very busy with other things.

Having said that - when I have had the odd moment to play at all - it's been this level I've played.

Will catch up on the plethora of posts this evening.
Andrew A's game on Sinus Mountains Vega
Very nicely executed AA. I always figured a high 29.xx would be the stone cold nuts on this map.

I've never played Sinus Mountains with a ghost. Even if (someday) I do, this will be a very difficult run to best.

Mystical indeed, sir.
Andrew A's game on Underground Andrew A
Pretty sure I can better this

Interesting doing a H2H with Oliver - our front wheels overlap almost exactly at the end, when he finishes, but mine slides on for a few more frames (4).

Olivers start is very slow. I am 0.2 -ish ahead of him early on.

The Gold time can definitely be beaten, though not sure by how much. I'd probably settle for 3rd spot on this map right now..
Andrew A's game on Underground Andrew A

Slid past the top of the flag for about oohhh - 3 seconds .. Otherwise almost a cert Gold.

Will have to check in Edge (where I can do a fullscreen replay, but not comment - the opposite of Chrome).

Just checked and 16.46-.50 looks about right. When my bike actually 'finishes', I'm nowhere near the flag anymore..
Vega vs. Andrew A Vega
AA - I think 16.5x is definitely possible, but thinking that your tire should have been stopped by the flag on your run here at 16.4x is not totally accurate. Many a'replays I have of my tire running through this flag at 16.4x to 16.5x only to land a 16.8x or worse, but it's the trajectory that allows the finish at the top of the flag, and with that trajectory comes a slightly delayed maneuver. You can see in our H2H that our bikes are LITERALLY deadlocked as late as 13.44 seconds (pause it there and you can't even tell there are 2 bikes racing.... every pixel is aligned as one bike). That means that your run was not ahead of mine in any way just 3 seconds before the finish. We just had a slightly different finish technique. I landed 16.7x 4 times before nailing 16.68.

16.5x is probably possible here... but very very very very difficult.

VERY difficult.
Vega vs. Andrew A Andrew A
Yes, I'm well aware that hitting the top of the flag is optimal in terms of finishing at the highest point!

I think that it may be a bit quicker overall to sacrifice that for a little more speed in the trajectory and accept that you are going to hit the flag 'finish' point lower. Just not as ridiculously low and far from the flag center as happened here. At 16 seconds I am a good bit ahead of you due to this strategy.

My previous best run - which isn't uploaded as it is only 2 frames quicker than my previous uploaded best, so I didn't bother - also slides through the corner in exactly the same way. The difference being that it stops in a logical position, which would correspond to a run of around 16.50 here.

What is annoying is the lack of consistency (this happens on a good number of levels) - but I seem to recall that we both (and others in the past) might have casually mentioned this phenomena before, in passing. Just casually. like..

Very nice run btw.
Vega vs. Andrew A Vega
Yah several of the levels have quirky flag centers. Drives me bonkers and I would strongly prefer that if the bike touches any part of the flag... even just a hairline pixel, that it would register with precision every time. Look at where you finished! How does that even make sense? So yah the physics is definitely not totally perfect and sometimes makes for very frustrating experiences.

As for this map, I don't think there is anything you could have done here to grab a better time with the exact course you plotted. Even if you tried to keep spinning your front tire forward at the very end, I think your trajectory would have pushed your tire to too quickly around in a circle and you would have landed on your head without finishing. So I don't see you being "ahead" of me here at 16 seconds.

I've never played this level against my ghost, and haven't played in over 11 years. However, I do believe 16.5x is probably possible.
Andrew A's game on Underground Andrew A

Just the one.

But super annoyingly smug...
Andrew A's game on Underground Vega
16.4x! Incredible. I figured you might land a 16.5x but you took it one step further. I think this could be the eternal gold here.

Even if I revisited this level, I'm not sure I'd play it competitively enough to best this run.

Bonus points for toppling another longstanding gold of mike flips. Any day you do that is a good day.

Quite nicely done, AA.
Andrew A vs. Andrew A Vega
Pause at precisely frame 16.24 and you can see that your front tires are identically aligned to the frame. This supports my previous comments that your 16.74 run here was not ahead of my 16.68 run. It was just a disadvantageous angle by comparison. Your new 16.48 gold is proper. You tilted back over the mines like a gangster.
Andrew A's game on Underground PMD
Wow, 10 years since the previous best run. This is a tricky trick. Smooth!

Need my BoD fix
I haven't had a Palm device in something like 8 years. Now I'm wanting to play BoD again...

If I buy a Palm device, how do I get the full version of BoD? The link to purchase it is dead and I don't have my purchase info from the first time.
