    @Ka-blamo It started sending me mental so I stopped bothering, it's sadistic!

    Anyone platinum'd it yet? Last time I checked no-one in the world had finished it.
    booped probably has (not sure what the platinum requirement is but he was 40-odd on the globals on it yesterday).

    That's cool :)

    I don't think it'd be toodifficult if it had checkpoints, but the fact that you have to start again each time means you don't get the repetition practice higher up that can get you to perfect a track.

    I just got plat! 104 metres.

    Ive watched the replay and there is a bit that no-one has got past, I know how to beat it. But I can't get that far grrr :)

    It looks like an almost vertical slope upwards for a long time. The person who's got the highest just razzes up it fullthrottle and back flips off half way up and dies.

    The trick is to do all the usual leanings for a steep slope but use like 10% power maybe less, you'll be going slow but you won't back flip off.

    I spent about two hous trying to get the platinum on Coliseum last night, I love that track but I cannot for the love of god get a platinum on it. There's no one part that is overly hard, just several parts that I will mess up on sporadically. I actually got a skin burn on my left palm from gripping the pad so hard...Trials how I have missed thee!

    Same here. Love the track but it was driving me potty trying to get it just right but had to give it up when my hands couldn't take any more. The plat time seems quite steep as well.

    Several times I got to the end well within platinum time only to spin out on the last slope, very annoying!

    Oh and when my Mrs asked me who I was swearing at so much, I could only mutter 'at myself' sheepishly!

    Crikey, booped you monster 0 faulting Magic Marker!!

    Played it through now and went from 40-odd faults to 2 (lucky). Not sure I like the lack of bike sounds on that track tbh...

    Having had a proper bash at the tracks now I think the extreme ones are probably the weakest of the lot - if only because some of the medium/hard tracks are outstanding. (Colosseum & Buccaneer are my 2 faves at the moment)

    Good God, the final part of that uphill climb skill game appears to be vertical :(

    The magic market track is awful. Reminds me of 8 bit trip, which I also hated.

    Otherwise the new tracks are very good. Even the skill games are fun

    I've decided my goal for the moment is to platinum straitjacket on the bmx. Got it down to 2 faults and 1:08.6

    I wouldn't go so far as to say it's awful but it is a tad surprising that RL included it as a new Extreme track given the general negativity about tracks such as 8 Bit Trip and the lack of anything interesting artistically going on in the background.

    It's a fairly decent track to play but, yeah, a bit baffling nonetheless. I'd have preferred a Diabolic 2 or something...

    Nice :)

    Not tried that track on the BMX yet, sounds like a challenge ;)

    Wow booped, you're caning it. Looks like all those hours spent playing custom tracks really paid off.

    There is one obstacle on magic marker that makes me want to throw my controller at the wall. Other than that it would be a fairly easy track for an extreme.

    Managed to get a platinum on uphill too, as well as a lot of the tournaments.

    My top tip for the BMX is not to pedal when going downhill...

    @Nanocrystal plus I've got some killer riders of my FL so even if I get a perfect run I look and I am 4th.

    I'm gonna be getting the DLC after work. Gone in for the high score challenge too. Add me up for some leaderboard action: SUNNO84

    Or send me your GT and i'll add you.
  • Deleted user 12 October 2012 15:15:57
    Feel free to add me Sunno, I probably won't be online until Monday though and I'll likely forget before then :)

    I've just freed up a few places on my FL so add away, I can never have enough Trials players.

    1 fault in 52 secs on the BMX earlier today (c. 3 secs faster than booped).

    Oddly, the start section feels rather easier on the BMX than on the Phoenix and is, potentially, another track where the Gecko is as quick as the Phoenix, if not faster.

    Can definitely go sub-50sec on a 0 fault run on that. Good fun :D
