Good work man - was looking great till the last bit!
Just noticed this thread. I'll have a go later this evening
Used to love doing time trial battles with my mates.
Had a little session just now and I've managed to hit 1 min 30.
Can't we use a cycle accurate emulator like higan? It's more accurate to real snes hardware than a mini is.
Just watched your video. Holy crap you're good. I'll have to see what I can do.
Hmm, with the lack of participants we may have to allow emulators. It's just that when I searched on youtube for Mario Circuit 1 time trials to see what sort of times are possible, I saw cheats where players are racing through the dirt with DK and getting a ridiculous time, which I know isn't possible on the 'normal' version of the game. I assumed it was some hack via an emulator? I don't suspect many people on here would be that bothered to cheat anyway and it'd be good to have more people someone else playing so those who can only play via emulator feel free to join in.
That's the official PAL world record for Mario Circuit 1, without any cheats. The NTSC version is 2 seconds quicker.
You can see the verified list here: https://mkwrs.com/smk/
Wtf there's no way you can go through the dirt like that, you pretty much grind to a halt!?! I'm going to try it when I play next but that just doesn't seem right to me.
A beginner's guide to Mario Kart snes time trial techniques:
I'm a noob, I never knew most of this. It seems to have added a whole new dimension to the game. Just watched Sami Cetin take on Florent Lecoanet in SMK World Championships and it's ridiculous, they are both absolute beasts.
I know of it but I couldn't do half of it so gave up trying to compete. MK DS was way easier with its infinite rocket start and snaking compared to the SNES!
Cutting the track in such a blatant manner counts as a record holder? Nonsense.
Just exploiting the game bugs/mechanics. In my eyes it doesn't count.
It's given me some inspiration anyway lol, I will keep trying to smash 1'30 on rainbow road then I can end my MK career a happy man. Iv just got a new lap record and I can edge in front of my ghost comfortably but can't maintain it for 5 laps, eventually I'll nail it.
I think I tried MK on the n64 but it just never had the same feel as the Snes version for me and I never touched another MK. I always felt this one was gameplay perfection and no racer ever equalled it for me.
That's not how world records work
This reminds me of how people reacted to snaking on here when they found out it existed in Mario Kart decades after if was first discovered
Perhaps worth a read.
Just worked really hard to get 1.15.86 with toad on ghost valley 1
Wish I could drift!
It's just practice, switch to dk or bowser and try it Make sure you get the boost start by only pressing and holding accelerate between the first two lights, if you get the failed slow start you were too early. Added your time to the list, not bad your second!!!!!
Good idea on the thread !
must get involved
why DK or Bowser ? is that for the mini or the original ?
I used to use Koopa i think (or was it Toad)
