I am sooo pissed!

I wanted to built a track that challenges your driving-technique. You have to spend a few moments to get the start right, but the learning curve on this track is very high (and pretty fast).

But that's not why I'm pissed. During driving I discovered (with the help of ZettZen) some driving-bugs in Trackmania which really upset me. To do them you have to press some combinations that feel like Finishing Moves in Mortal Combat, and that's not really fun in a driving game. So I had to decide to rebuilt the track for those who use these bugs or keep it so that the normal driving is still fun (for me). The decision was to ignore the bugs.

This is too much for a Franz-Josef, so I retire from trackbuilding.
In the future I will be represented by my good old friend Dale Cooper.

So be prepared for something different when driving the INTERMEDIATE SCRAMBLE!

what you're talking about ?
which bugs do you mean ?
what combinations I have to press for that ?

Don't want to tell too much, but it has something to do with the reverse-boosters.

Watched your replay: I thought about many ways to drive the start, but this obvious route I've just missed.

Tried your route Dag@bert: Just can't do it. I blame the keyboard.
  Dag@bert 21-Jan-2011
the start is not a problem of keyboard or not - just stay on the gas AND brake when you turn left at the red booster, then the car slides 180° back with a short curve
  franz-josef666 21-Jan-2011
OK! That's the same thing I discovered when driving backwards ("bug"). But I somehow can't do it properly.
  Dag@bert 21-Jan-2011
anyways, I still don't understand your "bug"
  franz-josef666 21-Jan-2011
ZettZen figured out when you drive towards the first booster, get of gas, hit gas, brake, you are much faster driving backwards.
On the second reverse booster you can press forward and backward together for more speed. For me this is a bug, because it's not the "natural" behaviour of a car.
  Dag@bert 21-Jan-2011
aaahh ^^

I know that, it can be called a bug, but if you know how it works, you can use it. But you also could say that red boosters are not normal for a car, so what. ^^
(I think the "natural behaviour" of a car not even exists in real life, and TM is just a virtual game only, hehe.)
  franz-josef666 21-Jan-2011
Very true Dag@bert. But it feels like it's not normal for the game-physics.
  MoaraShira 21-Jan-2011
pure nonsense
not to compare with your last 3 brilliant tracks....
  franz-josef666 22-Jan-2011
The reference is the racing-game Rollcage. It's incredible fast, the environment is destructable and the best thing, the cars have no up or downside. It's also very difficult; the later levels are only possible to play if you are not thinking, you have to let your subconscious drive. Rollcage also has the special mode called Scramble. There you have no opponent, but a very weird track. You have to accelerate, break, jump, turn the car on it's "roof", stop in the finish-field and all of this against time. It's very challenging, often you have to decide how much you can speed up to get a turn where you have to break (you want to do it as fast as possible 'cause it's against time). Here's the only video I've found for the Scramble-Mode:

I don't like this strange track. No award! Sorry!
  franz-josef666 18-Feb-2011
Calmed myself down by making a track without booster:
"Coffee with Tiger by   franz-josef666"
Changed me back to the good old Franz-Josef.

Clever idea! Can be tricky sometimes and it requires some time to handle it well but it's really nice when you get into the trackflow.

Acid jazz for the win!!
