CB Nanaca crash record beaten (in Off-topic)

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] March 19 2007 9:49 AM EDT

Yes, I have finally come to beat my past recorded distance of 19,499m and have a new record

and what appears to be a broken image link to go along with it, or at least from my end of the internet

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] March 19 2007 10:04 AM EDT

I know, need someone to fix it again, tried removing the http stuff but then the link is broken from my end also.

When linking to links within CB, you should avoid using the full 'http://...' part, but skip the domain part instead (start with the / right after '.com').

i find it tries linking back to CB when not using the http://

bartjan March 19 2007 12:18 PM EDT

That's with external links. Without the http:// part, it thinks it's a directory below this site's root. Maybe an example works best:

Works, but only for those logged into cb2.carnageblender.com:

Does not work:

Works for all:

Can we move away from that subject already?
I was hoping some people might discuss the new score but if I wanted a linking thread I would have bypassed the entire trouble of trying to upload the image.

Congrats, Zog.

I just want to know how long it took!

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] March 19 2007 3:38 PM EDT

Not too long, nearly half that distance I was at speeds of 100-120m/s.
I'd say it took somewhere between 5 and 10 minutes, 15 at most.

QBsutekh137 March 19 2007 4:17 PM EDT

Ah, a speed master! I never got very good at the game -- well done, Zog!

Is having your ego stroked by a bunch of strangers on the internet really that important to you?

QBsutekh137 March 19 2007 4:46 PM EDT

I'll stroke Zog's ego any time he wants. *smile*

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] March 19 2007 11:31 PM EDT

Of course it is Mian, stroking is good ;P

very cool, i find it takes forever to get anywhere, lol, and when i do get up to a good speed i cant see where the "stop" girl is, =/

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] March 20 2007 12:29 AM EDT

Oh, don't get me wrong, it takes many tries to get a good run. The best tips are to start off with an angle of 10 degrees or less and only use the 'knock-down' power to get the 'stop' girl special to manipulate the red girls.
Another tip is generally to avoid the purple girls but if you do hit one try your best to get the special which is from any girl that is there when the meter has a 90 at the end e.g. 190m or 1090m etc.
Also save the red power ups (the mid-air knock-ons) for when you already have a good speed going and you would otherwise hit one of the guys or a power down girl, usually best for when when you have the 'stop' girl special saved but can see you wont land on her on that descent.
