I just broke 3 million in Mesablanca, holy shit..

Just wish I did this before this game became 18 years old, lol.

I think this is the best run I`ve ever done. And sorry for filming with my iPhone SE, I just didn`t expect this to happen when I started playing this game again. I have saved the replay, I`ll see what I can do and rerecord this possibly.

And btw, I think I`ll go for 3.1 +, or maybe even 3.2 +. I`m not finished with this track yet.

Pipedream: 3,690,350

This happened pretty much out of nowhere. Got the two 5x flakes in the last pipe with SS-SS-WTD on both flakes netting 300 k on both. 4 million would be the score to go for here.

Snowdream: 2,467,320

This run was very good overall, but I missed 70 k towards the end and there`s room for improvement on other things as well. I think I can beat Rashid Khan`s 2.545 million, and go for 2.6 million. Time is scarce in this track, so it requires not wasting time and timing the jumping off rails, ramps and the backwards fence leading to the 3x is very hard to do it all in one run, with the backwards fence being possibly the hardest, since there`s a small window between hitting that 3x and not. I`m somewhat consistent up to the backwards fence, but that part ruins many of the runs.

Dang dude, you're really on a tear these last few days. Are you playing on console or emulator?

I`m playing on PS2. Found an unused controller at my father`s place, pretty much a brand new PS2 controller and I was like WHAT? They`re not supposed to appear all of a sudden, like catching a Mewtwo out in the wild in Pokemon Go.. Almost.. Man, I really thought I preferred GameCube, but I must say, even after all these years, I think I prefer the PS2 controller despite setting all my previous records on GameCube with the exception of the 3.6 million Garibaldi :yes

And now.. 3,730,480 Garibaldi! This run was pretty DAMN good. I think 4 million would be of course the dream score to shoot for, but getting an extra 270 k seems... well, HARD, to say the least. I must say my confidence in improving this score is not very good :eek There`s one particular strat from the TAS runs I can`t get consistent at at all, so I modified that part of the run, but losing around 130 k there by basically skipping that jump on every attempt. The strat I`m talking about is 1:00 in AverageTrey`s 3.411 Garibaldi run https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ly-tRypLxXc
Hats off to him to execute it in a real run. :china

If Kelecat, Rashid Khan or koeiproginator could give me some input on that strat, it would be greatly appreciated. I also tend to land on the wrong spot after the backwards fence before that jump. So basically before the jump in 1:00 in AverageTrey`s video. Hard to explain..

It`s like I got a better feel for all of the tracks than before. I wonder what I can do in EA, Merq. AIJ and Alaska. (Maybe 5 mill, 5 mill, 2 mill and 5 mill respectively? I`m open for the possibility). Tokyo`s not really on my mind, that track is just stupidly hard and I don`t think I`ll even attempt it. Same could be said for the 5 million EA I guess, the halfpipe is just so ridiculous.

The Snowdream run, Pipedream run and Garibaldi run will be uploaded to YT soon.

I checked my GameCube memory card for scores to see what my old records were.

And I found a GEM..It turns out I got 2.1 million in AIJ, and I broke 2 million three times in total(!?) As far as I could remember my highest was 1.85 million. I tried to find a saved replay, but no luck. Nothing on Youtube or in the videos folder on my phone either.

But considering I did 2 million three times, I think doing another 2 million+ run should absolutely be doable.

EDIT: So I tried AIJ again, and this seems very promising :yes This is perhaps the track I`m best at in the whole game. 2.2 million is possible, but that`s pushing it a bit already, requires pretty much a perfect run without TAS strats.. Higher than that and some TAS strats would be absolutely necessary. Not gonna see 2.3 million, of that I am sure. Maybe if I get lucky with one of the strats and manage to hit everything else. :shrug But then again, many of the strats in TAS runs I`ll never be able to perform in a real run. Not a chance. With the exception of bumping into the boat at the very end with an uber trick, maybe I could get consistent at that.

And I forgot to specify when I said PS2 gondee, but I meant console and not PSCXR or other emulator. Perhaps I`ll try some GC console also

So I decided not to go for AIJ for now, and try Merqury City instead.

This track is really tough once you go over 4 million, but I managed to get 4.22 million after some days of working on this track. 100 k was lost that I get about 95 % of the time I would guess, so that sucks. Some jumps were also suboptimal in terms of which uber tricks I did. Previously I was talking about the possibility of 5 million, but I just don`t think it`s a reasonable goal to aim for. If I get somewhere around 4.5 or 4.6 million I think I can be happy with my score for good.

AIJ: 2,182,160 :pimp

Had to skip the 2x before the last checkpoint because of very little time.. if it weren`t for that, this would`ve been 2.2 million. Everything went my way.. There`s actually a strat that I`m thinking about incorporating into my runs, which opens up the possibility for 2.3 million. But getting consistent at that is probably impossible.

I`d love to submit this score to the scoreboard Gondee :pimp

I`m sorry for making like 10 posts in a row, but I guess some activity is better than no activity! And right now I am the only active player in SSX Tricky as far as I can tell, and I think some people read this thread.. hopefully.. haha

I tried Untracked again for the first time in a really really long time, and after a few runs I did 938 k in.. 4:12!! 900 k sub 4 min. sounds interesting, I think it should be doable

This is pretty much the max you can realistically get with the path that I use. 1.2 or a little above is surely possible, but that requires a perfect ending which is really hard. It`s so bumpy towards the end that it`s hard to really to an uber trick consistently there. But I did 3 ubers through the last jump. I also frame cancelled most places and did 2 ubers instead of a WTD for extra points.

It sucks not having the score show, so you never know when you get penalties though.

Definitely getting harder and harder to improve this score. A penalty cost me 15 k(double rodeo WTD) and lost one 2 x flake which cost me 20 k. I also skipped one jump (the 2x after the billboard with 5x) which is around 30 k. Not giving up until I reach 3.1 million+.

The billboard glitch would allow for even higher scores, but it`s really hard to do.

Finally!
:pimp Mesablanca: 3,146,185 :pimp

This is probably as good as it gets from me... This is my all-time best run for sure.

No missed flakes, no penalties, only a couple of things here and there that could`ve been improved really. Very satisfied with this score!
