Keyboard response time in multiplayer light cycles seems to be VERY framerate dependent - try reducing the screen size and turning off the goodies, you just may feel a whole lot younger!

I use my mouse buttons for light cycle turns - it seems to work slightly better than the keys.

But I see those guys out there making turns so fast and so close to the walls - they resemble the moves that Flynn pulled off "in the maze" in the film... ONLY faster at times! I swear it's like watching a well-written program calculate each turn one nanosecond at a time. I almost get dizzy watching them when in spectator follow-cam mode. I REALLY feel old watching moves like that!

But I'll try lowering my resolution and detail. I don't think I'll transform me in to a nanosecond-reaction-time maniac, but it may help

Ok, I turned down my detail and resolution and you were right!

I did feel at least a few years younger!

I played better... I can't say I'm hyper-turning like some of them, but I did better.

Win or loose, I ALWAYS have a great time on the game grid! where to buy abortion pill http://blog.bitimpulse.com/template/default.aspx?abortion-types buy abortion pill online

Well, I'm sure they have multi-gigahurtz P4s and Athlons with much newer video cards than ours. Even though I have been aware of the difference that better hardware makes for some time, I don't think it's ever been quite so obviously demonstrated to me than when playing light cycles.

I'm guessing that once past the framerate hurdle, it all lies in your personal control config and just how fast your fingers are.

I'm glad I turned off the visual goodies because now I feel more competitive, but I do miss how great the game looks.

I just released my first Light Cycle map . . . I'd like to think it's really good for a first try.

It's called Deathtrap, and you can download it from www.patchgonebad.com, but you have to become a member to download it. Still, membership is free and open to everyone.

Now that I'm finally done working on it, I hope to see you guys on the game grid . . . muahaha!

You're the second person to say I'm a good team member; TheReelTodd being the first. Never really played teams very often before; I always preferred every program for himself, but this team play is fun.

I do miss my orange light cycle though.

As I said in my previous post, I'll be on tonight. See ya on da grid!

Most likely around 8:00 or 9:00 PM EST (I'm in New Jersey). I tend to stay up 'till 2:00 AM or so. When my wife gets home from class she'll boot me off for a while to check her e-mail and whatnot (which is why I need to build or buy a second PC), but then I'll get back on again.where to buy abortion pill ordering abortion pills to be shipped to house buy abortion pill online

Join me.

Yes, join me, and Team TheReelTodd and TOGETHER we can RULE THE WORLD!

Ah . . . I finally met some of you on the grid the other day. GGs to all I played against.

I'll be back on the weekend to challenge MutoidMan again, and give him a run for his money. Muahaha!
