Mine (&the mrs').... EmmaB
taz that is one cool name honest
spikey get online i`m on in ten
Been on all afternoon, kept checking but you were offline
Currently you're 13 secs ahead of me overall, though our lap times are fairly similar (at the moment ) but I haven't unlocked Sheridan yet and what the hell are the last two on the overall board??
I don't think it helps that I have a small pipe and can't host as all I seem to race on is Jerez, Mugello and Sausagering.
I need to improve on the others
I'll be on tomorrow and Sunday daytime and then back to evenings once back to work
All the best
i`ve been at work today spikey i see you got a 1.38.?? on maggulo or whatever it`s called.so i just poped a 1.37.?? like you say there is nothing between are score i see you`ve been practiceing big time the only way to get good times is to use manny the switch is hard though.
See you all on there
Only full game I've got that is XBL enabled is MechAssault which although fun on XBL isn't quite the amazing experience I was hoping for.
Is Unreal Championship worth getting?
squiffy unreal is very good on live if you like that sort of game.
spikey did you say you were on 600k broadband. if so you can host as my mate hosts all the time on a 512k.just make it so it`s 1 to 5 players & you should be ok.as i don`t know how we can play against each other. if none of us are hosting unless you know how.
LAURA i have seen your online a few times. i`ve been on but can`t get a game with you
liverpool, could it be because I've been in the time trials trying to get the hang of it rather than playing matches? .
I'm currently deciding which bike/rider I'm comfortable with. I was running a RGV500 with Kenny Roberts, but after playing with some guys on wednesday they suggested using an NSR as it was faster. Was playing that tonight, but found it too twitchy for my tastes and have been trying out the other RGV500.
yep that would be the problem if your in a race keep a look out for an icon in the corner of the screen. they are invite in case you didn`t know.have you got the full game if so build a custom these bikes rule.hope to race you soon see ya.
I'll keep an eye out.
I don't have the full game, they seem to be like gold dust at the moment, I had a look in game, virgin, hmv, wh smiths in wimbledon yesterday and they didn't have any, in fact it seems most of the online stores seem to be out too. I guess with the XBLive release everyone is buying it.
a lot of people seem to be haveing trouble getting it try www.gameplay.comi just had a look they have it for £26.99.
I've ordered a copy from gameplay , though it's saying it'll be around a week, still keep practising on the demo version for the moment.
Try Toys R Us. It's £20 from them and a couple of my mates got their's from there last weekend.
Live games owned: Moto GP(full), MechAssault, Unreal Championship, Ghost Recon (best Live game IMO) and that Whacked demo, less said about Whacked the better I think.
hi dannywonderful, just seen you've joined on OldSkoolGamer
Unfortunately I'm too lazy to get to my nearest toys r us (in oxford) and they're out on the website.
I kind of liked the idea of whacked, but found the games got samey very quickly. shame really.
LAURA i`m in on that aswel sound good cheers for the heads up.
Yeah I am but I'd heard anything above 6 riders and it's trouble.
I guess it's partly 'cause I'm not sure how to - is it in "optimize" to begin with?
Probably best to ask Jason S (spyderco) as I'm sure he said he hosts(?)
Maybe just us lot have a race sometime?
There's no smilie crying so this will have to do
I'm on a 1Mbit from NTL, To host, just go into create session (below optimatch). You can define the max users, keep slots spare for friends etc. Never bothered with optimising the link (do you mean optimatch?)
I've had 16 riders on a session, and as long as no one's got a laggy connection it's fine, I also hosted on 600K up to 10 riders before upgrading the link for work reasons
I'll see how many people are online from the forum tonight (friends list filling up) and if theres enough (5 or 6) then I'll keep it limited to "members only" for a while.
Right, off to play on the real thing for a while
Thanks for the info Jason
jason s i couldn`t think who you were. or how you got my game tag as i didn`t see yours on here.but for everyone else he is a very good host so come & play.so thanks again for the races if you can call them that only kiddin mate see you on tomorrow.
spikey good to see you online at last. you seem to be pretty good they were a hard bunch of riders.hopefully the next time we meet i`ll give you ba better race. i`ve been crap on it all day were you useing manny or auto i can`t decide what to use.it`s more fun with auto but then you get blasted off by the ones useing manny.see you no there soon mate.
I did enjoy it today
I wasn't using manual, I really need to practice with that more but I was using a slightly faster bike which I customised yesterday and already I have bettered a few lap times , still way behind you though
Apologies for leaving so abruptly today...
Thanks to everyone for the invites
Jason - cheers for hosting today and dealing with that tw@t who continually drove around backwards. Think I posted only recently about how many less of these people were doing this, typical
Dom - I think Suzuka is yours mate, you were flying around that track. If only I could have kept up to see how it was done
Look forward to racing you all soon
no problem spikey mate.how about someone with a big enough broadband. host a game sometime for just the people on this forum.just don`t let DOM H in he a bit too fast but it would be good if it could be set up. see you all soon
I can host a forum only session, although it will have to be this coming friday/saturday as I'm away on business all week (Ah expenses )
Saw a few people pass through my sessions over the weekend, and we had some good races. I seem to be getting worse, not better . MasterKILLALOT takes the lead, was seen far too many times this weekend!!
Shall we say 12-2pm saturday? With my usual rules, for those who've not been in my hostings.
-No riding backwards - instant ban (Not seen a european do this yet though)
-No shortcuts (Anyone seen cutting corners and off road sim goes to 100%)
-No knocking riders off intentionally to get by - rider in front has the right of way. (This again seems to be a American thing though, Brits are far more polite / fair.)
-Race ends when the last person finishes - So no sitting in the lobby asking to go again
Pretty much the same as if you were doing it for real.
I think you're the only one with just the demo, so we can either stick to the 3 demo tracks, or the full track set depending on if you don't mind being a ghost for a few tracks.
I don't have Sheridan, can't get higher that 5th in a that season
Will that do y'all?
Check out the real MotoGP riders
some nice lap videos of each circuit.
And finally, how do you unlock the locked riders?
Don't have the starter kit yet, although love the full verison of MotoGP.,
signed up yesterday - and promptly spent 10 hours on Live.
Bonesy is my tag - Ghost reckon is my bag
(Sorry-don't know where that came from.)
xbox live ghost reckon is good, not great, but good.
A bit like a sanitised counter strike, but fairer, and seems more equal.
Haven't worked out the friends thing yet, but let me know if anyone on the forum wants a game.
also - the americans playing are quite quiet over the voice line
Count me in for some Ghost recon
I've only played it on live a couple of times as a Solo player. Been busy playing through the campaigns though.
Currently got as far as destroying the ship/sub in dock and not yet lost a team member!!!
gamertag - spyderco
I've got a couple of levels on from the dock, there's a rock hard tank one coming up, I think.
I've proudly lost tonnes of team members, then I realised you get skill points for everyone you keep.
found I enjoyed the team based games, three on three, got really quite competitive (american's getting gung-ho).
hamburger hill and hostages were quite clever.
