I'd start with the original.

I consider GX to be the superior, it has cuh-razier levels, better graphics (i.e. you don't see the tracks loading in the distance) and is played using the GCN controller rather than the N64 controller. X has a nice vibe to it though.

I'm not an expert, but I think fundamentally all sprite technology of this sort works by the same principle. CPU power is used to transform an image on the fly, recalculated in such a way to appear larger/smaller (scaling), or rotated, or at an angle relative to the camera.

I think the reason this doesn't look quite like mode 7 is because the CPU only has access to a smaller set of transformations. Maybe it can't rotate those road sprites, for example. This means the game has to make do with a combination of (even more) false perspective or compensate by having more predrawn sprites.

Man that is impressive for 93.
Also greatly profits from the path instead of lap mechanic. The many changing backdrops give you feeling of actually going somewhere because you are so damn fast.

>> No.1994401

The most important technique: the side attack. When you use it, you instantly regain your grip. This means that if you fuck up and start drifting, you don't lose as much speed. Also, never use the sharp turn (holding Z or R) -- side attack as you turn instead. Again, you lose less speed than sharp turning, you can make tighter turns at higher speeds, and if you happen to hit someone, you'll often kill them. Side attacking is the one thing that let me graduate from Expert to Master. Of course, you'll have to git gud and get familiar with the stages before this will help you very much.
Secondly, I'd stick with Falcon for at least a while. His machine is very well balanced.
Thirdly, whenever you hit a pink strip, which recharge your health, boost on it. Boost comes from health, but for some reason, boosting on pink does NOT cancel out the health gain, so it's basically a free boost.

Finally, there are a couple of spots where you can fly off the track if you're going too fast. One is on Silence, and there are two more, the exact tracks of which I can't recall. In one of them, you can take advantage of that part of the track's straightness by flying off on purpose and then angling downward for a gravity boost, or even doing a DTD (which is too hard for me, but you can Google that.) The other two, you can usually save yourself by anticipating the spot and holding the stick downward to make sure you come right back down when you fly up.
Have fun.

I just looked into it.

There was always something weird about isometric racers for me.

>> No.1994502

Came up with more:
-There are brown rough patches that will slow you down; boosting over them negates the effect.
-The AI rubberbands something terrible, but you can take advantage of that by getting in front of gaining opponents and getting a nice speed boost.
-General racing tip: stay on the insides of the turns. For very tight turns, start on the outside and begin turning a bit early.
-If you hit an ice patch, you can still control your trajectory using the almighty side attack.
-Killing 5 people in a race gets you a free life.
-Memorize boost pad locations, especially on Silence. They're absolutely necessary on that one.
-Important: unless using a certain advanced technique, the acceleration/speed slider should be toward speed. Move it to the right more as you get better. I keep it two notches from the end, generally.

Okay, I think that's finally it. I don't even know if anyone cares, but I've got nothing better to do anyway.
Haven't finished it, sorry.

What's there to innovate in a racing game? What did GX innovate from X? The vehicle creation mode?

Mr. EAD is allegedly a 'perfect android' and they entered him into the races so that they can test their AI programming, and they figured a gimped machine will help give a concrete answer. Despite that, Mr. EAD rarely is ever in the top 6 position, and is almost always last.

Hey guys, trying to git gud at F-Zero X. So far I've beaten up to the King cup thanks to the side attack, but I wonder: is it enough for the entire game orwill I eventually have to move on to sliding?


>> No.2012093

It was enough for me to beat Master on all cups. You just have to really learn the tracks and be good at utilizing the technique. Sliding is for speedrunners.

>> No.2012229

I just beat it on normal tonight. Feels like my time has not yet passed. Slide attack turns are something I'm working on. Apparently hard turns (going with left on thumbstick and left on trigger or vice versa) are to be avoided because they slow you down. I found them useful for getting around that one fingertip without rails.

this is something called "line scrolls" I think, it's the same way Pole Position for the arcades worked, or Rad Racer for the NES. It's entirely different from mode 7 and only works if you're trying to simulate a road. Compare and contrast Street Racer for the SNES (Mode 7) and Genesis (Line scrolls)

I need help recalling a futuristic racing game...

You luged around (yeah, like that olympic event) on hoverboards. There was an open hub that had some training stuff, or you could just mess around in there. One of the main mechanics was grinding on rails that would take you to different places and speed you up. IIRC, you could also do very simple tricks to help you speed up in races. I played it on PC as a kiddo, I think it would have been around '99-'01, no idea if I had it when it was new or not. You also earned a token or something for every event you won at, which would allow you to unlock extra cups/tracks/etc;

You don't have to use super advanced techniques to beat all the cups on Master. I know I beat Jack on Master without killing anybody, and that was just with Blue Falcon, no sliding. For the others, I probably took out a racer or two, but ultimately, if you know the tracks, you can find a way to win without getting too fancy. Just keep hammering that boost and taking turns as efficiently as possible.

Staff ghosts are considerably more difficult. You need to basically race almost perfectly. No errors and a good racing line.

The easiest staff ghosts to beat are probably Silence, Sand Ocean, Devils forest, Mute city 2 and White land.

Try switching on your own ghost too so you race against yourself to help you improve your times.
