MSR: My Speed Challenge Quest

Post#1 » Sun Dec 19, 2010 3:14 pm

I'm trying to beat the old Speed Challenge records from the 2001 Dreamarena competition.....

http://web.archive.org/web/20010503210811/www.dreamcast-europe.com/english/news/000108/000108.php

Instead of selecting the Speed Challenge option, I've made separate Time Trials so I can use Manual Gears with no ABS. However car (VX220) and driving conditions will remain the same. The Speed Challenge tracks are:

London/St James's Park/Long/Parliament Street South II
San Francisco/Financial District/Medium/Market West II
Tokyo/Shinjuku/Long/Higashi-Dori Kita II


Please feel free to join in, although these records are tough to beat.

****
Currently I am working on London; my best so far is 1'10.833 so I'm getting close! :)

I love this game, but I can't touch that score.

London time beaten! :D

A late 1'09 time is possible.

YT video to follow, but first need to work out how to remove that extreme interlacing! :evil:

Damn! That was fast. I'm horrible at racing games, otherwise I'd give it a shot.

Sub 1.02! :) Quite a few mistakes near the beginning too so the record now looks beatable.

EDIT 17/1/11: Now 1.01'546......competition time is now beatable but need a magic lap!

Record matched....1'01.3xx! :)

I was playing in VGA so didn't get the actual lap recorded. :( Although MSR's backgrounds look nice and crisp through an old PC monitor, I still prefer the game on SD television via RGB SCART.

Moving onto the final challenge in Tokyo; almost dead on 57 seconds.

No idea how to get close to the record at the moment! :(
