Vega's game on Clay Serpent
I can get ahead of my ghost too on various different runs, but this level is so incredibly unforgiving and rickety rackety, that I just don't know if I want to put in the time to beat Smalls.

10 years ago, I posted 32.50 for 4th place. It took me 1,356 tries for 82 completed runs, and was pushed down to 8th place, tied with MATA.

I have now played 8,993 and completed 528. That's 7,637 tries and 446 completed just to gain 0.26 seconds to move to 32.24 And btw, I tied my own best ghost of 32.50 5 times before I beat it with a 32.28 run. Then I beat 32.50 another 15 times before landing 32.24. Then watching the ghost against Smalls and other players makes it look like there is all kinds of room on this map, which is insane.

I used the "Cirenco/Kris" route all the way up until yesterday. I still think that route has the potential to hit 31.xx, but I find it more difficult to keep speed through the center circle after the jump.

Then, after being rather burnt out, I tried the "Smalls" route, and landed tons of great runs back to back to back. I donít know which route is faster because they both yield extremely close results.

Ok I know that only like 2 people are going to see this post so I will can it.

And now... Clay Serpent is truly my least favorite Standard level, but at least I have conquered it well!!

This 32.24 run against my (3) 32.28 runs. 2 bikes for each route. Very cool!

A tricky double flip inside the circle for funsies Very difficult to land a 32.xx with the extra flip.

Looks like there's jussssst enough room to pull a 34.xx.

It would take pieces of my silver run combined with Laser's moves at 21.xx.

Vega's game on Pirates of the Caribbean
Here is my gold run against all my best failed runs. Interesting to see that none of them really stayed ahead of my gold run.
I remember being so frustrated with these failed runs because all of them were just close enough while playing that I thought "maybe this is it!" and then when I died it was like "nnnnooooooooo" .

In the end though, my best run prevailed

Ahh, sorry - very well done on getting No1 spot here, Vega - a bit belated!

I'm very busy atm, so just pop in now and then to have a very quick glance at the forum (all messages). Hadn't realised the ramifications and the reasons for your last few (very nice) runs.

I had a relatively quick dash through Standard a good while ago to put me in a reasonable position. I was playing catch up in TTC with a very active BB at the time, so didn't have the luxury of really REALLY working any level. Tbh - I was only just getting to that point anywhere/anypack when the game broke!

My daughter told me not to get an old ipod yet - it was in hand (as part of my birthday presents from her). It still is apparently, just taking a while.

Once it arrives (or maybe a sneaky 'meanwhile' surrogate..ssshh!) I will resume my quest - which is not hard to figure out

Bask in the Glory (with an audience of - possibly - 2?) whilst you can. It won't last...

You're too funny Andrew. If anyone is basking in the glory here, it has got to be YOU!! 48 Gold medals. That's straight bonkers

Nah man I will just continue to play my style. Focus on specific levels and play them out until I feel I am satisfied with my play. You're standing as numero uno in BoD will not be in jeopardy my friend. (not by me anyway). I am still on my old rusty Palm Treo 650. It freezes. It closes out randomly. It doesn't always save my replay. It restarts after each and every time I exit BoD. It's totally ridiculous bro.

But it still works!!!!

btw Andrew... all I did was post one new best time in Standard levels... Clay Serpent.

I was only 4 points behind Mike Flips even after 7 years of no games submitted. So going from silver to gold on Standard levels was as easy as moving from #8 to #2 on one single level.

Anyone ever seen a better run going from top to bottom?

There is a lot more time to shave off this, particulary in the top left coming back over the spikes and then again on the last flip over the tall spike to grab the final flag. I went too high here and wasted over a second. Very difficult route though.... much more difficult than completing the bottom section first.

Here is a screen freeze at 32.56 (right when he touches the flag) in a Head to Head vs Kris. You can see how just a couple tweaks could get me to my flag first.

I knew I could get to my flag before Kris got to his

Ooh Ahrr, aarr,.. AHarrr - very well done there, Capt'n ahharr!! ahrr, arrr .. (Cave? Gold? a bit Piratey?)

This (and your other recent endeavors) deserves more attention than I can give right now - apologies (not that there's anything to see here.. ). I will be getting involved again soon, but up to my back teeth right now.

Give BB a boot up the arse. He could at least pick up the slack, comments wise, whilst some of us rebuild our house again (desperately); with family descending. Imminently.

Shouldn't you be dealing with 'important' Corporate Shi.. - stuff, rather than playing obsolete games? ... .. ... Ehh?

Playing obsolete games is more fun

I think I'll carry on. See you on the trail, partner.

Quick ninja jump onto the yellow truck? Success! but the recovery is slower than your grandma.
