View Full Version : Record compare replay (multiple replays at same time)

I would like to have a new feature where you could select 2-4 results from the track high score list, and the game would show a replay of all these records at same time. The camera would point at average centerpoint of all these 2-4 bikes (and zoom out slightly if necessary) and on top of each bike there would be floating text label stating the name of the player.

This way we could easily compare the difference between drives of the top players. Who is faster in each obstacle, and where the biggest gaps are gained and lost.

This would be absolutely needed if we arrange some big tournaments later on. We could use this tool to generate videos of all the tournament rounds. The early rounds could be for example 4 players against each other, and the best 2 advance to the next round. Each 4 player match would be recorded and posted as a video. The top 4 could be held same way as the early rounds, but with more levels to play (3 random levels, 3,2,1,0 points according to the placing per track and added together to see the winner). Actually we could take the top 2 players from the final 4 player match and arrange a final 1 vs 1 match in the same way. Possibilities are really endless. This record compare replay feature would really help the audience to follow the tournament.

Sounds like a very cool idea, maybe you could even have it so you could switch the camera to any rider you want as well?

Good idea, but do you mean 1-to-1 as in actually racing in real-time?

If so, I'd find that much more difficult than racing alone. Even in ghost mode (which is fantastic!!!) I find it difficult to concentrate on just what my bike is doing, especially when the two are neck and neck. I definately think I'd put in a sub-standard time in a 1-to-1.....but maybe that's the point? Separate the really good players.

Maybe an option tho change the opacity of the ghost, so you can just about see where the other player is, without it becoming distracting??? Just an idea. http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_biggrin.gif

I just found out that you can actually do this already in the game http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_smile.gif

Look your replay and after it, save it with save replay.

Then use the ghost of the replay you want to compare to.

Exit the play mode and go to the replays and play the replay you just saved. The ghost will also play in the replay.
