Check out, ride and rate my new track "Multiple Choice Exam". A medium/hard difficulty, multiple routes speed run track.

I have spent some time with this 1 really tweaking the driving line, so hopefully there are some great runs to be seen. It is also decorated so theres stuff to look at too.

This track will be my Beta Build Off entry.

It's got a smooth line (if you can nail it). The difficulty is kind of inconsistent; that backward ramp section on the lower route is a beast http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon/eek.gif

You're certainly right about the inconsistencies, should probably be a hard! And yeah that ramp can be a problem. I however nail it almost everytime http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon/smile.gif

My advice, take the top route.

Edit, I have obviously determine the difficulty by my own skill, could anyone new to trials give it a bash and tell me how hard it was?

I would stick it at a hard, personally as some jumps really do take some finesse to land properly, and some are pretty tricky http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_asleep.gif fail most of the time from the start to the jump over the half loop).

How on earth do you use the topmost section before the jump over the oil container? No matter how hard I try I keep hitting it (much to my annoyance as really I want to pass under it).

Apart from that, I like the track a lot, been trying to improve my time for the past 45 minutes, but keep getting my face smashed in on the aforementioned section http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon/sad.gif (Much to my annoyance, despite finishing the track, I cannot rate it as it still thinks I haven't finished it....)

And the rating thing sucks http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon/sad.gif have you tried watching a replay? does it give you the option after?

Around the 30 second mark, I can just see the red ramp to the right of the yellow sign.

Strangely, I went away, rated a track I'd forgotten to rate, then came back and the option to rate was open. Odd, but that's betas for you.

You see the ramp I barely hit at 27/28 seconds..? You must hit that spot on with full speed and you will get up to that very top bit, I've only done it once!

And props on the Gold, I saw your replay http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon/smile.gif

1 hour later, I finally took the top time http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon/smile.gif

Awesome track, only one to keep me playing for over an hour.

Thats great to hear, literally just been watching, although the LB still says you're #2 I can see your time is better by 1/3 of a second or so. Great run and theres still plenty of time to shave off http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon/smile.gif

Now go get that platinum http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon/wink.gif

I have obviously determine the difficulty by my own skill,

Never do this. Base difficulty on compareable tracks. Because its"easy" for you doesn't mean its an easy track. I always over difficulty rather than under difficulty, because thats annoying to play a "medium" track and its hard, or a "hard" and its really extreme.

Lesson soon learnt after raging at mediums that have really hard obstacles in them. Like I say, if it wins in the build off I'm sure it can be changed to hard for the masses http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon/smile.gif

Damn, all those multiple paths were really teasing. Couldn't decide which one to take, end up crashing a lot. Have to improve my run there.

Loved the map. It was more on the hard side as some said, if you consider all the paths available. Anyway, good luck with the competition. http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon/wink.gif
