Furthest Hoop Record Post Here

Recommended Posts

CrazYFinGers

Post your longest shot record here, in Meters if you remember or in Feet, found under Achievements.

 

Please remember to divide the amount in Feet under your Achievements by 11.11 and not 3.14. Thank you.

My record is 27.4M, and it says 304.44FT under my achievements. Beat that, and not cheating or faking, You will have to post a pic to proof your rediculous claims.

Your claim sounds pretty rediculous. I want a pic.

Not only is it suspicious, it's mathematically impossible. 27.4M is just under 90ft, which is obviously nowhere near 304.44ft. So your game is FUBAR or you're mistaken it what you typed...

 

Also, please don't double-post. You replied to yourself 2 minutes after creating the topic; next time just edit in the new information.

Damn, let me dodge the hateration here...

 

Ok, I can't confim the 304.44 ft even though that's what it says, but I did shoot it from 27.4M away, thats what it said on the screen when I made the shot. As far as the what it says under achivements(304.44ft), yeah, I think the game doesn't know what its talking about.

 

But I'll post a pic of the 304.44 FT anyway, even though I think it's bogus. But 27.4M, that's my record, now stop flaming and get the record braking. sly.gif

It's pretty funny that you ask everyone to give a picture, yet you didn't yourself. I'm finding it hard to believe you.

i dont think you can shot more that about 20 m or 60 ft, cause if CJ too far away from the basket, you will be considered quit/leave the court.

either you lie or my mistake bored.gif

Great way of keepin, "on topic".

 

Anyways, in the mist of all this, I broke my previous record of 27.4M and i now have a record of 28.4M. Thanks guys for motivating me:

Ok, here's the pic of where it says that I have a record of 304.44 Ft. in the Longest Hoop:

Again, I don't know why it says that, and I'm not counting it under my record (this is my little brothers profile anyway, since in my profile I can't play basketball cause of u-know-what glitch), but it's there.

For what it's worth, I did a little checking tonight. CrazYFinGers' 304 ft Achievement score wasn't a one-time glitch. Every single meter->foot conversion in the basketball furthest hoop calculation is screwed up, at least on the xbox (and apparently ps2 from Crazy's screens). The developers have somehow managed to take meters*100/9 as their feet distance for the furthest hoop instead of something more reasonable like meters*100/30.48 or even meters*10/3. I wonder if they did that elsewhere too....

 

Also, in the course of my testing, I hit a 29.9m shot (glitched achievement distance 332.22ft). There's a screenshot link below, but after Small_Fryz' post, it's not particularly impressive and I'll probably delete the screens later to reclaim diskspace. Due to the weird camera angles, you have to shoot blind beyond half-court (at least in on my game) which is one of the things that makes it difficult.

On 2nd thought, those screenshots in the record book are in ft, so maybe the ones in that record book are actually less?

 

Im pretty sure all the top 5 records are ft, converted to metres.

 

Can someone who is PAL find out if the measurement is correct?

Daaaaamn, thats crazy, but I was only doing my sh*ts from the court next to Sweet's house, where it's more limited. Where are the other courts these people are shooting from??

 

Umm, where is the court that you are using pdescobar??

Interesting thought. If they were from the glitched conversions, they'd only be half-court shots though (52.15m is approx 171.1ft; if that came from the glitch, the original shot would've only been 15.4m)

 

I too hope someone can test this on whatever version of the game was used by the record book participators. The easiest thing to do is start a new game to clear the stats, play through Tagging Up Turf to get the basketballs, and then make successively longer shots, noting the in-game message (in meters) and the achievement stat (in feet) each time. The glitch will be immediately noticeable.

I used the court in Willowfield which is in very SE Los Santos. There's a tag to spray right near it. I'll put a SAM link below. Note that since I was shooting at the Western basket, I was nearly at maximum range because of a fence on the East side. If you can get the ball to spawn at the Eastern basket, you probably have more room because there's an alley in the other direction.

Okay, I did what you wrote, and my first and only shot was 5.0M, which is exactly 16.4FT, but under Achievemnets I got 55.56FT.

 

7.5M gave me 83.33FT, it should be 24.6FT

 

10.0M gave me 111.11FT, it should be 32.8FT

 

So the game multiplies the Meters(M) by ~11.111 and gets the measurement in Feet(F) for your Achievements.

 

or (M)~11.111 = F

Yep. This confirms my findings on the xbox (US version 1); thanks for that. Note that 100/9 (the conversion factor noted in my previous post) is approx 11.111. I assume you're on the PS2 based on an earlier screenshot. Is it NTSC or PAL? Also, is it v1 or v2 ("SE")?

It is NTSC and I don't know how to know if it's V1 or V2, but I got it the same day it came out for the PS2, so I think it's version 1?

 

And today I got a new personal record of 31.6M <<Data from screen, not Achievements. And I just found out that there's a basketball challenege when you press R3... Very qul rolleyes.gif

I didn't feel like regestering to see those screen shots either, but I'm with whoever it was (Small_Fryz?) that commented on how they're probably conversions from ft. measurements. when you get into the upper 20s meters range it pretty quickly will relieve you from your basketball. i just don't see how they can get almost twice as far away and get the shot off before the game says 'nope, you ain't playin' basketball no more'.

 

in our latest game we've (hubs and i) been screwin' around with the basketballs and his best shot is 28.1m and it shows over 300ft. in the stats. we were both like 'eh.. what?' which is why i'm here searching through the forums and finding this post. nice to know our game isn't the only one having trouble remembering that a meter isn't 11 ft. long.

 

to CrazYFinGers, i believed you all along! biggrin.gif

 

that all being said, i'm thinking that CrazYFinGers' distance of 28something meters is looking more and more like a #1 record, imho.

 

opinions?

It might be easiest to simply ask them if their shots were from "a little over half court" (meaning glitched distance recorded) or from "way the hell far away; 1 1/2 to 2 court lengths" (meaning actual distance recorded.) If anyone is active on that forum, some PMs would probably give us a definitive answer. If those are actual distances, that's damned impressive; I'd like to know what courts they were on too.

 

EDIT: On the assumption that the Spuds725 listed in the record book is the same one active on these forums, I have PM'd the Spuds725 here with that question.

Could you tell us what version/platform you were playing on? I'm just curious how widespread the glitch is. I suspect it happens everywhere, but confirmation is good. So far we know for sure it happens on v1 NTSC PS2 and xbox.

Well, the potential #1 record is now CrazY's 31.6m. I have screens of a legitimate 29.9m posted earlier, but I probably won't ever bother trying to go back ahead.

Err, is that 50.12 real meters or 50.12 glitched meters? biggrin.gif

 

I assume since you play PS2 version 1 it's the latter, meaning a real value of 14.8 meters (about half court.)

 

Oh, and @InviSniper: thanks for confirmation of the glitch on PC version 1. icon14.gif

Nice! But didn't your mama teach you not to play basketball in the middle of the street? tounge2.gif

Get one a little bit farther; I wanna see the 400 glitch-feet mark passed biggrin.gif

 

Anyway, I heard back from Spuds. In his case, he doesn't remember the details of the shot, but it was definitely an Achievements distance conversion, so the evidence continues to mount that the gtaplanet record book was using glitch numbers. I think the least confusing thing to do is simply maintain separate records of in-game/brief (actual) meters or achievement (glitched) feet and not bother doing any unit conversions. It's not like this has any real meaning anyhow. biggrin.gif
