Hey everyone! rubregg and I are talking about doing a little competitive racing on this game save in order to brush up or improve on our survival routes. If you'd like in on the action, get to the races and start warming up. I'm not planning on putting in the time required to set any new records, but I would like to get within a few seconds of the top scores in order to make sure my routes are solid and skills are sharp. I'm hosting a GTASA Record Book - PC over at GTPlanet.net for reference on the top scores. If you are worried about the fairness of these records, then compare the top scores with the records from GTASA Record Book (PS2), you'll notice most of the events have times posted within a second or two of each other.
Controller Notes: Most of the scores in the PC record book are posted by Morgoth22, GTA_Phreak, and myself. I use a gamepad for racing, GTA_Phreak uses a driving wheel, and Morgoth22 plays using a keyboard and mouse. For the most part, the controller doesn't seem to make a difference. The exceptions are: Go Karters with mouse look can stop cars from spawning where they weren't just a second ago. Keyboard players have seldom posted in helicopter races - I'm not sure why. Tapping in order to tuck on a bike may actually be faster than holding a perfect lean.

|Yes, we were. However, I just had a closer look at those records, and I must say that I'm miles away from most. There's only very few where I can get within 5-10 seconds over the records, but for most of them I'm at least 15-30 seconds away. Even a minute in the long ones. Seeing how often OrionSR appears in the record book I'm afraid I won't have the slightest chance. Willing to give it a try though...|
Anyway, I was wondering how much an old-ish pc affects race times? My laptop (3 year old centrino 1.5 / ati mobil. radeon 9700 / slow-as-hell hard drive) can just so run SA playably. Could that have something to do with the fact that I can do fairly well in flying missions (less detailed graphics) but am so completely lost in the driving races? Or am I just such a crap driver?? .... In any case, when I jump out of a plane from great height and freefall looking down, I can sometimes literally watch my game trying to cope with the graphics, stutter and then crash...

|@JAJ, Sorry, I was the one that completed list 2, but I couldn't remember which vehicles I did, and kind of skipped over that part of the report.|

|Anyway, it might be fun to do some races, especially if more than that two of us are involved. But I don't want to make a big deal out of it. (...)|

| @chain game operators and everyone:|
What if next round we include one or more additional missions in the form of rally races? Something like in the style of this topic that OrionSR had pointed to. The extra vehicles in our savegame do provide a wide choice of starting points (like "top of mt. chiliad & pick any of the cars up there" could be a fun one ). I'd declare these races 'unnamed' missions so everyone can have a shot at whatever time in the game they like. We'd have to manually take times ourselves as best as we can and possibly we should make it a rule to have the frame rate limiter turned on for them.
So how does that sound? Suggestions for routes??

|That sounds pretty cool. I'm game for it.|
But how will we verify the authenticity of the times posted by the players???

we could also include 1 or 2 '4star rallies' ...
