View Full Version : Finishing line fun

Haha! Funny thing happened. I was trying out the new track called Dizzy, and everything went just fine until I crashed exactly at the finishing line.. I saw one of the flags lit up, so I thought I had just finished the track, but then I see a message telling me that I'm unconscious..I'm like wtf http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_eek.gif?..I just stand there for few seconds..and then drive to the finishing line with one fault.

So is it so that the other flag in every tracks finish line is just a check point disguised as a finish flag? The flag looked exactly like one of those finish line flags.

You should check out the replay. It's number 14 atm (01:08:83, 1 fault). I'm leaving it there for laughing purposes. http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_biggrin.gif

That's correct. Some levels have 2 checkpoints at the end (last checkpoint is always the goal). Normally you would place them on the same position, but naturally level designers sometimes make mistakes (as their hand shakes a bit) so the other checkpoint is a bit misplaced. The flags itself are just decoration objects without any gameplay meaning. The checkpoint itself is a round torus like glowing object that is invisible in the game mode (only visible when you switch to level editing mode).
