Hello Donkey lovers and haters.

Me too, in the beginning was disappointed with a bike which is so hard to control. But once you learn to control it, it is the bike with more capabilities then regular bikes. Can jump longer and bounce higher and much more...

I'll post here videos of extreme tracks and same tracks where donkey shine.
Any comments and suggestions are welcome...

The list of all tracks you can find in this thread:

Let's start with TT, one of the most problematic one with Donkey...

Thanks man,

So today .... Widowmaker

With Berserker is not so difficult to finish the track, but if you want do it with a donkey, approach is a little bit different.

First jump - well, who cares you can repeat it as much as you want. Kind of bunny hop, similar with a first jump on quagmire.
Second jump - like with Berserker, you have to touch verical platform with back wheel to get spin that will push you on top.
3rd jump - There is no way to do it like you do with Berserker. Donkey is just to small. You have to bounce of the edge of the platform with bunny hop and lend directly on the top of next platform.
4th jump - I do it with a flip, maybe there is a better way. The point is to hit the top with a back wheel and push yourself forward.
5th jump - Is not so difficult to perform, I did 2 faults for nothing in order to save some time :( but I did not save time, just did 2 faults #$%@#
6th jump - Most difficult to perform for me. If you go too fast you jump over the middle platform and crash. If you are too slow, you don't have enough spin to get on top. So you have to use middle platform with bunny hop.
Last jump is just 2 bunny hops...:)

Man you made that last jump look so easy :p Great riding!

I'll have a go at it soon, but i suspect i might have to start upgrading my donkey for some of these obstacles. Like the vertical climb on wwc for example. That one gives me a headache :p

Thank you JollyCharly

So, always attractive island track - Melancholy Temple (at least for me) ;)
The first track I played after I spend 90 gems to repair the bridge. With not upgraded tango I could just look at begging of a track asking myself - is it a joke? this is impossible...
Video was made to be attractive, not super fast. But it is still top 10 time on ios. Despite a mistake I made on vertical part, which is the most critical part of the track.
So don't feel bad if you can do it, just practice :)

Thanks mate,

So, another island track, Fault Village.
Time saver on the beginning looks hard but it is not harder part here. Just 2 bunny hops. Lending directly on two top platforms is harder to perform :)

02-05-2016, 03:38 PM
Thanks guys,
Actually, I think that donkey can jump directly on the last platform, without touching the wooden thing in the middle. And it would be much faster I guess.

Anyway,... today I have something more interesting and more extreme for Donkey.
The last track from winter season: Chilled Cliffs

Time saver on the beginning is hard to perform even with full upgraded Donkey.

Is it fully upgraded or is one of the parts 9 in order to get donuts? ^^

02-06-2016, 01:46 PM
It is fully upgraded. I have a bunch of donuts, don't know what to do with them...

Anyway, let's back the island. Refinery abyss is kind of track where skills doesn't count much. A bit of luck is the most important part here,... :)
I guess it was my lucky day :)

Let's back on extreme one... a few days ago I posted Widowmaker. Some of you wanted to see how to perform last jump so I posted the video I had at the moment and It was messy one with 5 faults.
Now I have something better, Donkey on Widowmaker with NO faults.

02-08-2016, 10:05 PM
An awesome run you did there mate!

I also completed widowmaker with the dk and I'm ranked 15 with 17 faults! Not a crazy run but still ;)

I have completed all the extreme pack tracks except for woodwork conclave, could you post a video on that? I'm really struggling with the buzzsaw jump (even if I make it with 10-20 retries) but I just cannot pass the vertical climb!

Cheers

lesorsier
02-09-2016, 11:39 AM
Congratz man... Well it seems we have something in common, me too, finish all extreme pack tracks except...woodwork conclave :) You can jump over saw easy if you use spin from previous jump.

Anyway, today video,... most hated track in the game (according to comments and screenshots from bunker ;)) and with Donkey, it is much more complex - QUAGMIRE
Even my computer refuse to capture, and there is drop of frames,..
1st video is almost clean platinum ride.
The 2nd video shows the jump I was talking about, directly on the next platform without touching the bar. Unfortunately I mess up the rest of the track :(

@ Lesorsier.....

It's a joy to watch your Donkey runs mate as you make it look so-easy.....Just quality riding, Congrats on the zero fault Widowmaker run.....Nice one !! :D :cool:

Nice Quagmire runs as well.....I've tried MANY times but I just can't get past the invert mushroom obstacle at the start and my Donkey is fully upgraded !! :(
(Hopefully I'll managed it one day but I'm focused on improving my normal bike times and unlocking the last 3 bunker tracks at the mo')

lesorsier
02-10-2016, 01:07 PM
Thanks man,.. Quagmire is hard one even for Berserker and with Donkey is 10 times more. Mushroom at beginning is not the hardest part,... well you'll find out,.. :)
Theoretically, Very short lean back, hit the edge of the mushroom with rear wheel with bunny hop, Well, easy to say,.. :)

Don't hurry for last bunker track. It is just another frustration. I unlocked it 8-9 month ago. Less then 50 players had it at that moment. Now, there are 1000. Just 88 of them finish the track with Donkey.
Since then, I collected 227000 chips waiting for "coming soon" to become present :)

Now, another track from Tier 3 Extreme Pack - Vault Crawl


https://youtu.be/Q4Hkwa1W9_U

FatalDragon69
02-10-2016, 07:46 PM
Quality clean & rapid run on Vault Crawl, Nicely done as always !! :cool:

I really struggle to get the Donkey up those steep ramps (most times I don't make it :() but you make it look easy, you must have spent a fair bit of time getting used to the little beast of a bike !?

lesorsier
02-11-2016, 01:45 PM
Well, let's say I have fast fingers (I am musician by the way) but I admit that I spent a few hours on today track, in order to make it attractive. Time saver at the beginning is my little invention. Perform it in this way is possible only with donkey and it is not easy....
OOOPSSS,.. just tried with Tango - it is possible... exactly the same... my bad ;)
Anyway, now I realize that I missed WR, because I jump too high at the end. KarTank GrgGory and Cassecou06 use the regular route which is much slower.

So, today: Casino Rooftop :)

02-14-2016, 03:13 AM
Another couple of Quality Runs.....Nice one !! :D

I like both of those Tracks as well, they're both quite technical to ride but, as always, you even make the harder one of the two (Merchandise Stash) look really easy !!

I also like the way you use the swing on Casino Rooftop, never seen it done quite like that, I use my front wheel if I use the swing and do a backwards flip underneath the swing and land on top of the next platform smoothly if I've executed the swing right but as you know it's not easy to land every time, I can usually land it about 60% of the time so it depends what scenario I'm in as to whether or not I go for it but it's definitely the faster way through the track when landed properly.....I'll have to try your way using the back wheel some time, I might be able to land that more often !!


Anyway, Keep Up the Great Riding Mate.....Great Videos, as always they're a pleasure to watch !! :cool:

lesorsier
02-16-2016, 01:13 AM
I wanted to do something new with the swing. Just in this way, it is very easy to end with back flip and crash, :) or wheely down to buzz saw and crash there. Even if you jump the saw it is hard to stabilize the bike,...

Anyway, another track from extreme pack,... :) Grand Moonshine :)


https://youtu.be/VO5ZYeWl-Es

FatalDragon69
02-19-2016, 05:39 AM
Well your back wheel trick looks better than doing it with the front wheel, I still haven't had a go at it yet but I will.....Also, I agree, it is hard to stabalise the bike after jumping the saw.....The donkey's bouncy wheels don't help either !!


Another quality smooth run on another tricky little track that I like, Grand Moonshine, to be honest though I like most tracks ;).....Nice one, keep'em coming as I'm sure I'm not the only one that appreciates them, Great Work & Cheers for putting the time in to make and share them !! :cool:

lesorsier
02-20-2016, 09:35 AM
Thanks man....Grand Moonshine is not so difficult as other tracks from extreme pack,...
This one is a bit harder,... Madhouse :)

FatalDragon69
02-23-2016, 05:36 AM
Yeah I agree, Grand Moonshine is definitely one of the easier ones from the pack but it's harder to do when riding the Donkey (even though you make it look easy) anyway, that's a sweet run on Madhouse you've done there.....Perfect skipping over the tiny platforms at the end as well.....Nice one mate !! :cool:

lesorsier
02-23-2016, 05:13 PM
Well yes, ending was good, the beginning is possible to be better,... but it is time consuming with the donkey,...(to be recorded well)

Another one from pack 2, not so difficult - Stuntman Plaza. Not my best time but looks good and clean, still top 10 time on ios. The route without the high jumps is maybe faster, but like this looks better :)

02-23-2016, 09:23 PM
Agreed, it does look good that way, also, I'm liking the way you use the moving ramp to get over the top of the next obstacle, I hadn't thought of that.....Can that be done with the Mantis ??

Yes, it is possible with Mantis also, just the top ghost I chased use the regular route.


Wow, some really great runs lesorsier. I have had that song stuck in my head a couple of times now:p what language is that anyway? Looking forward to more videos;)

It is not just one language. It is mix of Russian, Macedonian, Serbian and Spanish... :)

Now, for players who maybe don't know, when you collect all data cubes you get Dark Machine track, and this little blue hat I like to wear :)
This is the only track without check points. It means No Faults.
The invisible platforms on the end always reminds me on the first version of Prince of Persia from 1989. It use the same trick on the end of the game ;)

lesorsier
02-26-2016, 12:06 PM
Fatality Lane. This one is not so difficult. There is a way to jump over the check point on the metal ramp. In that case metal ramp will not fall and the route is much shorter.

lesorsier
02-29-2016, 11:48 AM
Glad to help :) So you can try this, this suppose to be an easy one. Sunset Dungeon. Interesting here is that you can't perform this shortcut with tango in this way....

VERY nice run on Sunset Dungeon mate, Great Riding again !! :cool:

How many attempts did it take for you to find the angle and fly through the gap like that ??

lesorsier
03-01-2016, 09:02 PM
5 to 10 maybe,... hard to tell. Pass through is not so difficult. Lending part is harder because it is very easy to finish between wall and wooden wheel and crash.

This one is much more time consuming and requires more tries. And I still can't connect all the parts. Grease Transit.


https://youtu.be/sB0M5VtD7Ds

FatalDragon69
03-02-2016, 03:44 AM
5-10 tries is still good going and landing is always tough with the Donkey from any height due to it's bouncy wheels, but again, you make it look so easy !! ;)

Grease Transit is another great track but that near-vertical blue ramp is such a pain, even on the Mantis, I just can't seem to get up most of those vert ramps on the Donkey.....So whether or not you can or can't connect all the parts yet.....That's still a GREAT run mate, Nice One !! :cool:

lesorsier
03-02-2016, 02:10 PM
Don't be afraid of the vertical ramps. It is not so difficult if you know what you are doing. In Grease Transit the real problem is after the vertical ramp.

Berkandsnow reminded me on The Grindhouse, so here it is. Perhaps there is a better way to use the swing thing in the middle of the track. Just I am not sure how,... yet,.. ;)


https://youtu.be/2AjRYhyofJg

FatalDragon69
03-02-2016, 06:54 PM
Yeah I agree with you completely, I just haven't been able to master those vert-ramps with the Donkey yet, I know how to do it (even more-so now from watching your videos, Thanks) I just can't land them most of the time because of those bouncy wheels and the extremely sensitive leaning.....Hopefully I will one day though !! ;)

Anyway, another nice clean run on The Grindhouse there, you use the swing flawlessly but if you don't use it at-all you'll set a much faster time, when I say "don't use it at-all" I mean you can actually make the jump across that gap without even touching the swing, I can do it on the Berserker so surely it's possible on the Donkey.....With the Berserker I jump the gap going underneath the swing but after watching your Donkey run it looks like it might make it going over and through the top of the swing (still without touching it though) I'm sure you could manage it with your Donkey skills, have a go and let me know how you get on and if it helps !? :cool:

lesorsier
03-03-2016, 12:52 PM
Vertical ramp - a little how to
Always bounce of previous platform in order to go up when you hit the platform.
If it is not possible to bounce then bunny hop. Never go strait.
Hit the vertical ramp with the front wheel and lean forward. Front wheel must not bounce, otherwise you crash. You must find an angle by yourself and attach front wheel on the ramp.
Push forward, with front wheel attach to the ramp. If you see that you will end with back flip, just stop and push forward again.

Here is one more track with several ramps of this kind. Hope that this will be helpful ;)

PS The Grindhouse. Yes I go under the flip too but with Berserker. I am not sure if it is possible with the Donkey. However, it is possible to go with front flip like I did on Casino Rooftop. But it is not simple :)

So,... Grinder Precinct

Damn man, you really are the Donkey Master.....That's a sweet run on a great track which can be a pain sometimes, even on the Mantis, but as normal you make it look easy whilst riding the Little Beast.....Just a quality run mate, Nice one !!

Also, thanks for the few tips, I had sort-of picked up on the front wheel thing from watching your videos but I wasn't completely sure how to execute the move properly, so thanks for explaining it, I haven't been able to perfect it just yet but I'll keep at it.....Thanks again, it's much appreciated.....Keep on taming that Little Beast !! :cool:

Thanks man, but master is a hard word, I just chase ghosts of real masters and trying to make attractive videos.
Keep practice, once you find a proper angle you'll see that it is not so difficult.

Much more frustrating thing is time saver on Troll Lair. Not my best ride but time saver is here and looks nice,.. ;)

Nice run mate and the time saver does look good with the Donkey, I struggle to land it every time with the Berserker but it looks easier to do with the Donkey, guess it's because it's smaller or maybe because you're riding it !? ;)

lesorsier
03-07-2016, 02:32 PM
I am not sure if it easier, Donkey is slower then Berserker. It looks easy when you watch, but did you try? ;) It was not easy for me :) Success rate is very low.

One more infamous vertical ramp is on Hilltop Ghetto. At least for Donkey. This is good example for "how to - vertical ramps". Attach front wheel to the ramp, if you are not sure, just stop and push forward again.

03-07-2016, 09:36 PM
Yeah, I had a try after watching your video (MANY tries) and it's definitely NOT as easy as you make it look in your video (I knew it wouldn't be hahaha) I only came close to making it, didn't actually land it when I tried but I'll keep at it and hopefully I'll hone the skill enough to land it one day !!

It just makes me give you more praise and appreciation for the quality runs you've done, as I know just how hard it is to ride and land most of it on the Donkey (Little Beast) :cool:


As for Hilltop Ghetto.....That's a quality run that's made even better because you've done it on the Little Beast, Nicely Done Mate !!
I had a REALLY hard time, just completing the Track, when I first came across it in the Story Mode and I took a LOT longer to get Platinum here as well but I finally got used to it and I'm a lot more proficient now.....As for the Donkey, I just can't get over that starting Vert-Ramp.....and I've tried MANY times BUT I'm yet to have a go since I've been watching your videos and listening to your advice, as you've definitely helped me get better on the Donkey (Thanks for that Mate.....Much Appreciated :D).....So I'll have another go at it and let you know how I get on !!

lesorsier
03-09-2016, 07:41 PM
Thanks man and keep practice.
Maybe my approach to vertical ramps is not suitable for all players. Maybe you can find another way that is more suitable for you. But in any case, you must find a way to NOT bounce when you land on vertical ramp. For me, rear wheel lending is harder, and success rate is much lower.

One more track with vertical ramps which can be frustrating, Scorched Battlement
But as you see, I am not sure yet what is the best route for all those ramps,.. :)

03-09-2016, 10:59 PM
I'm getting used to your front wheel technique, also I agree, it works a lot better than the back wheel and it's definitely more consistent that's for sure.....Cheers for that !!

Nice clean and smooth run on Scorched Battlement, another track I like which is quite challenging in places, especially to keep a constant flow all the way through the run as there's a few technical ramps and bounces you have to time just right, which looks to be a little easier with the aid of the Donkey's bouncy wheels (in places anyway) Nicely done again mate, always a joy to watch !! :cool:


I've noticed that I'm riding the Donkey a lot better and generally smoother all-round since I've been watching your videos and chatting to you.....Many Thanks Mate, it's MUCH Appreciated !! :D



Just need RedLynx to fix the damn Leader Boards so they ALL work properly again, then I'll put more time in on the Donkey, but as it is right now I'm losing LOADS of points on every other track I ride.....So I'm only riding it when it appears on the Slot Machine for now !! :( :mad:

03-11-2016, 03:06 PM
Nice to hear that my videos helps and you are becoming better and better. Fortunately you are on Android and I won't face you in the bunker if you become too good ;)
I hope that LB points will be added once the problem is solved, otherwise I'll lose huge amount of points,...but at the other side, who cares? )

As everybody plays these new tracks from KTM season, this is the newest one. From yesterday do be precise :)

This is the standard route which is not so difficult to perform, but very possible that there is a faster route which will be much harder to perform.

Also, I agree, It is a shame that we won't get to meet each other in the Bunker for a Donkey Match-Up.....Would be fun even though you'd completely Whoop my a$$ !! :p


Nice and clean run on the new Lost Race Track, funny how it looks like your going slower than the Tango when we know the Donkey's quicker.....You're right, there are a few different lines to take on this track which end with around the same finishing time but I think the one you took is about the best one so-far.....Never know though, it is new so someone might find a better line in time !!


:D !! Many Thanks Again Mate.....Keep on Taming that Little Beast !! :D

Well said and I agree, it's a good tune that sticks in your head for days after watching his videos !! :p

I think it would be a bit better if we could hear the sound of the bike a little more though, this way it would be easier to know exactly when he's accelerating etc. thus helping everyone that's learning to tame the Little Beast, it doesn't need to be a lot louder but just a touch louder would be great imo.....What do you think !?!? :D


On another note.....This new "Community Channel" hasn't really had the raving success that our Community Manager had hoped for, it was a nice idea but to be honest I think it would be better if she done away with it and just moved everything back into the "General Discussion Channel" as it was before, simply because that's where everyone goes, not many people venture from there unless they're looking for something specific, so people end up missing out on great threads like this one.....Sorry Charly, I mean no offense, that's just my opinion from observation !!

You are right for the sound, I put it a little down and the Donkey a little up. And you are right for the Community and General Discussion but it is up to Charly to decide. You can give them a notice about it, maybe they will agreed also ;)

Now, regarding the new track ;) Lost Race Track
There is much faster route but it is hard to perform it.
Here is a little compilation of different version of time saver. Ghost I chase is Mike_G and his time is 2nd on IOS in this moment. I think that his version of time saver is the best so far.
He did some mistakes later in the track, that's why he is 2nd, otherwise he has the WR.

I didn't know that you made that tune yourself.....Nicely done mate, it's well put together, I made a few tunes of my own a few years back but I can't access them anymore because I've lost the main program that run them but the reason I'm mentioning it is because I understand the process to making them and it can be time consuming but rewarding when you finish them and I'm liking yours.....Nice one !! :cool:

Nice compilation as well, the main little time-saver you're using at the beginning is a bit of hit'n'miss as to where you're going to land from bouncing the back wheel off the top of the ramp like that but it works.....I'll have to give it a try and see where I land, Nice one again mate !! :cool:

Thank you all for your support...

As considering audio, I have some videos already rendered and I don't keep original files because is huge. But for future videos, Donkey sound will be louder :)

It is Sunday, day for relax, so easy one today.
Tutorial would be: Push forward and fly :)

You asked how to nicely summarize your videos in your other topic....

...just "reply with quote" to this message to see how its all organized in the format needed for posting.


NOTE: If you are on "mobile" looking at this, you MIGHT need to go to the very bottom of this forum page and click on: "Full Site"
Unfortunately, all the good formatting works when you have "Full Site" on... (sigh)


(a slightly better./more direct link than what you use in your Donkey Tube signature)
Click to see all DonkeyTube Videos (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCXkfFjGR5026tOtpeTjV8ZA/videos?shelf_id=0&view=0&sort=dd)


I set it up so all you have to do is add a single line for each video... pretty obvious what to change in each line

Arrgh! To get around the silly 6-video limitation in a single post, you could do either (or both!) of the following:

Link directly to the youtube:


Scorched Battlement (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VGZI2dE3TR4)
Lost Race Track (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rLF4hojg8X0)
Lost Race Track Time Savers (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HrugCJDAxSE)
Lift Of Doom (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-X4ulRsWggY)



Or link directly to the post with the video (in case you wanted to talk about the track in a post first).
If you right-click on the number in the top right corner of each post and "Copy link location", you will get its http link.... (or simply click on it and see where the browser takes you)

It could work, but usually there is link limitations in post also. You know if it is any here?
By the way, I already made the tables like you proposed first. Coping all those links is very annoying.
And did you know that you can't put word "videos" in the name of the thread. It says "Ask admin for permission" ;)

Linking directly to youtube is much faster,.. I'll see what to do,...

Anyway, this is the only track from challenge pack 2 I did not post yet. Wanted to record this time saver right, but as just a few people did this right maybe I was too ambitious :) This would be more "how to NOT perform this time saver" ;)
But you'll get idea what would be the right thing to do ;) Even in this version it saves time :)

So, Reflector 2 just ruined my Alpha Street 18.5 second run. (it is 3rd on IOS) That program always chose the worst moment to crash. If someone has experience with that program, hot make it more stable, any advice would be appreciated. I have 19.8 run recorded but I don't like it, so Alpha Street, some other time.

Fang Wall wall today :) The first run is current WR route, fast but nothing incredible, but 2nd run is something new, I did not land right but if I someone can perform it right, it might be faster route.

Not my WR :) I am 7th (so far) but it is the same route. So, who invent faster route, can have the WR ;)

Regarding recording, I am on IOS and I record from iPad 4, IOS 7. Its jailbroken so I don't update. I tried several different recording programs, and it seems that Reflector 2 do the job better then others. Just one little problem, it crash during rendering if you stop streaming, or if for some reason iPad close the connection. Or just crash during recording without reason. This is PC version. I tried also X-Mirage on Mac, but it was even more buggy.

So, Alpha Street again, one more island track that creates lot of problem with the Donkey ;)

Tutorial would be simple, just don't stop. If you stop, some obstacles is harder to pass.

2nd run has good ending. That's why I add this one, despite some mess I did in the middle of the track.
Mix these two and you have very good run ;)

Yes, you can ask, add, what ever ;)

Most of the videos I posted so far are top10 times on IOS. Some of them top 5,.. (at least it was at moment I made them, which is not long ago ;)) .etc. I hope that tf.lforo.com will add Donkey soon, so you can check IOS times.

This one I made yesterday. Despite the fact that I was lazy to start with bunny hop which is faster ( I can't do it every time) this run is 6th on ios. But that is not the point. Point is middle jump and vertical platform that I wanted to record right. So here it is. Slow motion included ;)

Feel free to place some critics sometimes... :) everything could be better :) Drop Zone ride is maybe clean and fast, but boring for my taste. Nothing spectacular happens except long jump,...But, that is the track.

Thanks man, and by the way what is PreFeb2015 Original Plat times from your signature?

Last November I finally managed to get Platinum on all the tracks that I own and made a post about it then I got a reply telling me that back in February 2015 RedLynx released an update that reduced the Platinum Target Times on the following 3 tracks.....

Flaming Freeway - Original Plat Time was 22:500

The Lift - Original Plat Time was 24:000

Alpha Street - Original Plat Time was 19:250

.....It was 'key1340' that told me about this and said....."So you could always go for the original plat times on them for the 100% proper plat's" !!


So naturally I went off and tried to beat the Original Plat Times, Alpha wasn't easy but I managed to get them all done in about a week, so Many Thanks to 'key1340' for the info and challenge, Cheers Mate !!


!! Hope this Helps !! :cool:


P.S: Nice run on Wrecked Tracks mate, took me a few runs to get Plat there for some reason !!

I had a few goes on Sledridge Gorge with my Donkey and you're right, the ending is a bit of a pain in the butt and I reckon you'd really struggle if the Donkey wasn't fully maxed out !!

I can get to the ending nice and quick without any faults on Sledridge, but then it takes me a few tries to actually land the ending, so I'm yet to do a flawless run there but I'll keep trying !!


I like riding Mud Cakes and Cracked Reservoir on the Donkey (Great tracks) I'm not as smooth as you but my times aren't too bad, they're about 4sec off of your times above !! ;)

Yeah just like that mate.....Nice one !! :cool:

How many attempts did it take to make that run, as you always make it look easy ??

Most of the time I smack my riders head on the way into the tunnel or don't quite manage to land it clean thus losing time trying to stabilise the bike and get traction again, I manage to land it about 15-20% of the time but I still haven't managed quite as smooth a run as yours, my best time on the Donkey is around 18secs so-far !! :(

I'll keep at it though and hopefully master the tunnel jump soon.....Many Thanks for making the video so quick, Much Appreciated, it's good to see what lines other people take sometimes (personally I only do this after I've explored and got the best time I can on each track first) you take the exact same route as me only I need to be smoother and learn to how to get traction quicker after jumping.


On another note, I noticed you've changed your background tune (about 3 videos ago) I was just wondering if there's any particular reason why ??
(The tune is ok but personally I prefer your first one)


Just out of curiosity.....Do you play with music on or just with the games sound effects or both ??
(I prefer to play with only the sound effects on)

Not much, few minutes maybe for tunnel, and make it under 15 requires more time because of part after tunnel.
Nothing particular about music, just for change ;)

Couple requests

Although Pipe basin isn't the hardest level, I'm curious to see if you can pull off all the time savers that normally a bronco does.

And again Sewage Treatment is easy with it's typical run, but there appears to be a possible time save after the vertical pipe if you go through the pipe and then up into the 2nd level. I can't manage it with either berserker or donkey, but I am curious to see a run over the top and if it is faster. I suspect it isn't but I'd like too see how that run ends, with the balls and whether you come in from above somehow.

You're right, there is no music in-game while we're riding but some people play games with their own music running in the background, so I was just curious.

Very nice, smooth and fast run on Flaming Freeway mate, I've had quite a good run there but not THAT quick or smooth.....It's one of my preferred tracks though (well laid out etc.) so I'll keep at it and hopefully perfect my run soon !!

Couple requests

Although Pipe basin isn't the hardest level, I'm curious to see if you can pull off all the time savers that normally a bronco does.

And again Sewage Treatment is easy with it's typical run, but there appears to be a possible time save after the vertical pipe if you go through the pipe and then up into the 2nd level. I can't manage it with either berserker or donkey, but I am curious to see a run over the top and if it is faster. I suspect it isn't but I'd like too see how that run ends, with the balls and whether you come in from above somehow.

Pipe Basin is not my favorite track but what do you mean by "normally" If you think about Carterclem time savers, it is far from normally. I never did last one. As regards donkey, first 3 are possible, not sure for last one.

And Sewage Treatment, I am not sure what vertical pipe you are talking about. If you mean route above the pipes, it is possible to do with almost every bike, donkey included. I'll make this one ;)


You're right, there is no music in-game while we're riding but some people play games with their own music running in the background, so I was just curious.

Very nice, smooth and fast run on Flaming Freeway mate, I've had quite a good run there but not THAT quick or smooth.....It's one of my preferred tracks though (well laid out etc.) so I'll keep at it and hopefully perfect my run soon !!
(I say "preferred" because I don't have any favorites as I think they're all good, so I have preferred tracks instead ;))

Last night I finally finish Woodwork Conclave, but 3 faults and 40 sec. and I was listening Prodigy ;) you can try with them,.. :))

But today something easier,... Great Wall

Smooth'n'Fast Run on the Great Wall there.....Very Nice !! :D

3 Faults and 40secs that's quality for a Donkey run on WoodWork Conclave, even your 4 Fault video is a quality run and I love The Prodigy as well, I have done for years (Great choice to play with) their music is quality to listen to when playing racing games etc. How about using a different tune of theirs to play over your up-coming videos to mix things up.....Just a thought, What do you think !?!?


Anyway, Nicely Done mate, I haven't managed to get to the end of WWC on the Donkey just yet, but I know that you'll have a Zero Fault run done there soon !! :cool:

Yeah I meant Carterclam's version. I can understand it being irritating for the guy making it, but it is such a pretty run to watch when done well. Watching a Donkey do it would be amazing.

And probably take years of practise to get right.

As for Sewage Treatment, I meant this section. I can get my berserker's back wheel up there, but I can't run it smooth. However, if you can get the donkey up there smooth, I was very curious to see where it all ended up.

I think it would lead to copyright claim, and closure of my youtube channel. I did another version of WWC, with different approach. So, if you can't do the triple bunny and bounce, you can try something like this. There is a slow motion after.

@Lesorsier.....Quality, you actually made it over from a standing start, damn you're good, I've tried it that way FAR too many times so I've been trying the triple bunny'n'bounce that you said before, but now that you've shown it CAN be done the other way, I might try it again as a back-up if I get stuck on that platform again.....Nice one mate !! :cool:

Thinking about it, you're right, it would be a copyright infringement by using The Prodigy's tunes.....Damn, would-of been sweet though !! :( :p


@Bryan.....I've managed to get on-top of the section you're meaning, whilst riding the Phantom was easiest for me but it only throws you into the front edge of the last part of the track (a metal wall) which holds the large balls that fall and squash you when crossing the finish line, so unfortunately it doesn't save any time.....Sorry mate !!

@ lesorsier: Again, excellent job on the WC run & video, still helpful to me at this point. :) Barren Steps is very good too, too bad I have a faster time than that! ;) Vagrant Camp is good as well, and again thanks for Sine City, and even Fest Mine. I did Fest Mine recently and it is really tricky to get used to, and a good time seems improbable but I will come back to that, and Vagrant Camp as well! I hate Waste Disposal though, it's an annoying track, every time when I finish, it feels like an extra 2 seconds has been added on. Ugh.

Metal Mayhem looks good too, I've said that already though. :)

Some of these videos look really slow to me but they are very quick times though... :) But keep those videos coming! ;)

Are we missing someone who normally makes a comment in here or is it just me? :)

Decent Donkey run on Backyard Catwalk, I had problems on that track a while ago, basically the starting point, but I've got a decent time on that.

Haven't looked on Choking Hazard, I haven't done that yet so I want to try that first then come back and look at your video, and then judge it, ok? :)

Also the Steeple Run jump is difficult to perform as well, take your time on getting a run with the sawblade jump on that. :)

Just jump over blade is not so hard. The goal is to bounce of the blade,... seems impossible, but it is possible. I did it,... once, and crashed after on lending.

Choking Hazard is Tier 3, the most interesting for me,.. of these 4 new tracks...

Here is one more new... (don't watch it :) find the route by yourself, like I did,... couldn't load any ghost due to the LB bug :) I think there is same LB problem on Android.

@ Lesorsier.....Nice runs as always mate !! :cool:

You're right, the same problem exists on Android as well, I can't view the Leader Boards at-all and definitely can't race any Ghosts as the game crashes before the Leader Boards load properly !! :mad:

I prefer to play and explore new tracks for myself, I only use Ghosts as a last resort when I'm trying to improve on a specific track/time that I'm struggling with BUT until then I like to try and find the lines and learn the track for myself, with that said, I had already made runs on all 4 of the new tracks before I watched your latest videos and it's good to see that the lines that you take on 'Chocking Hazard' and 'Faceplant Precinct' are the same as I had done for my best runs on those 2 tracks as well (for the Donkey, you beat my times by just over a second on both tracks, nice one).....I must be doing something right then or just slowly getting better or both !?!? ;)

Bounce OFF the blade? Ok, Im aware that you can randomly touch a sawblade once and get away with it if you're lucky, or you would fault normally, but BOUNCE off it? Seems ridiculous but it seems like it works. If only you can do that on WC, but nope. If only... :)

Ive had a decent run on all 4 of the new tracks anyway, I think Ive already know the best routes on all of the new tracks, and then I watched your videos and it was exactly the same routes & methods I took as well, except my times on Faceplant Precinct and Choking Hazard might be quicker than yours... ;) But the new tracks are relatively easy-peasy, Choking Hazard is the most difficult to get right but all in all, at least a set of half-decent tracks there. :)

I've not tried the ghosts because I don't normally use ghosts unless I was merely curious on a time on a particular track... But judging from what FatalDragon said, it doesn't work, but whats odd is the fact that on Razor Dunes we can get the score with the Donkey, yet we cant get the points normally on RD... Anyway, thats another decent set of Donkey videos lesorsier! Keep them coming! :D

I can access the top page of the leaderboards on each track but I can't scroll down or guess what, it freezes, so for me it's the Top 12 times on each track except for Razor Dunes annoyingly, and yes my screen is not as big as anyone elses, meaning I can't view more than 12 names on 1 page at a time... :D

You've been in the Top 50 on the Donkey LBs on Android for a while, and again, I'm seeing your name appear more often near the top of the LBs on some tracks, even on Choking Hazard, i think? So something must be right here, but you can only get even better in time, so CLEARLY it's both! Keep it up! :D

@HeaverBeaver115 Blade bounce is not my invention. Someone has posted Akrasiia ghost. You on android can check it. So I just tried to replicate it. And I did it in a few tries but crashed after. Didn't know if it is so difficult otherwise I wouldn't delete the video. It is nothing but luck here.

One more new. There are 2 time savers here. I am still struggling with 2nd one. But 1st looks good ;)

Makes sense that it would be Akrasiia who has done it that way, since his/her's time is sub-17 seconds on Steeple Run, although I wasn't sure who came with the sawblade bounce trick, so I wasn't sure if that was you or Akrasiia or anybody else... And since we STILL don't have update 4.2.2, players on Android still can't look at ghosts still, well I can't, so I could check Akrasiia's ghost but I can't at this point in time, as much as I would like to see it... But if that trick is based on luck, then maybe it is do-able, but obviously it isn't intended to be done that way.

Anyway on Razor Dunes, looks like I've missed out on 2 time-savers, done it normally with a time of 20.2 seconds, but the 1st time-saver does look like it saves time but tricky to pull off but it looks like it can save you some amount of time... The 2nd time-saver, I've never managed to get over it, it doesn't look reachable, even for the Donkey, but surely it can be done? I know you almost made it. And if so, does it actually save time as well?

And again as usual, a very decent and adequately useful Donkey run. Also if that run was on Android, you would be #1! ;)

Cheers!

@HeaverBeaver115 You have Steeple Run ghost video on TFG facebook group but you have to search a little as it was posted a few month ago. At first look it looks like a cheater or at least bug. The blade push you forward very fast. But as I said, it is regular - I did it :)

As regards Razor Dunes, jump on 2nd time saver was too low and short and I lost a lot of time there. I managed to hit top of the rock with a rear wheel a few times, so it is very possible and faster. But hit both time savers is hard.

This is much easier - Crow Nest ;)

I'm not on TFG facebook group, so I wouldn't know about it originally. But I have recently tried the same thing on Steeple Run, barely any success but I have managed to do that once, it does look dodgy, but it's not unfamiliar to me in this game, there are a few other tracks which a sawblade can do the same thing, but not as useful as the one in Steeple Run. :)

On Razor Dunes, in order to get a sweet time, you do have to hit both time-savers sweetly, but it's rare to do so though.

Crow Nest looks easy enough, the trickiest bit is clearly the random bounce you do to get over the ramp, that's the difference between a good time and a great time, but it's not that hard to perform, however, it does look simple in theory, but the positioning has to be right in order to do that bounce, and you can easily miss that opportunity to hit that bounce if your bike or rear wheel isn't low enough, and that saves you about half a second, if done effectively I would say. :)

Gem Quarry is easy enough as well, except the time-saver is essentially tricky to pull off, might give that a go soon, I could easily beat my own time there. Another set of some good Donkey runs lesorsier! :D

@Lesorsier: Another decent Donkey run on Squall Slide. Great riding all the way. At the end of the run, if you had it right at the last bit, then it would have been quicker, maybe another 0.2 seconds off, but still, nicely done. Sometimes when you make videos of the tracks that you've done runs on, and then it makes me do tracks in which I haven't done in ages, just like with some of the other videos you've done, sometimes it's quite refreshing. :)

08-18-2016, 11:19 PM
@lesorsier: When you make a video, it makes me want to do these tracks again, and it's the first time I've done these two tracks in ages. Your theory about the double bounce on The Naughty List after the candy cane bit might be right, but it's all about precision movement, the best time to lean at the double bounce, timing and positioning but it can be done perfectly for a sweet time. I assume a sub-20 second time is possible, I gave it a good go though there, but not close enough for me to be satisfied on that track but my run is just under 20.5 seconds, so only a tiny bit slower than your run. Good run/video again.

Forgotten Factory is a track which somehow I don't like, multiple routes makes the track tricky and makes you question which bit of the track is faster and which is slower, and I still don't know the best route on there. I assume your video has the best route since it has a very good time. Another good run again.

Cheers. :)

@lesorsier: Yes, Rigged Roadway is now a PvP track, but it's not out just yet. It was meant to be with a whole bunch of new tracks which was in the Bunker just recently, but no-one has got Rigged Roadway and RL are sorting that out. So, when Rigged Roadway will come out I'm not sure, but it will eventually, meaning another PvP track to chase up, and it means we need to get it with the Donkey as well. Also, when that track is out, we SHOULD get the points for it too with normal bikes and the Donkey. Rigged Roadway will be from the looks of it our 211th official track. Still on 210 tracks, but when Rigged Roadway is out, then we will be on 211 tracks. :)

Additionally, another set of excellent runs, the bad news is that I actually did these 2 a while ago, although you will make me do them again! Frost Carnival looks precise and swift, and Rocks Off looks good too. Don't actually like Rocks Off at all, but I'll aim for a decent time this time round.

Yeah, I've been doing all the not driven tracks with donkey. And some of the tracks just felt good to ride, so I went highest I could.
I have way more motivation with donkey than normal bikes currently. There are just some HC tracks that are over my skills, so not gonna make it to topspots of donkey LB.

@lesorsier: Nice run on Slick Slalom, precise as usual, especially the starting bit with the Slalom looks good and as close as you can get it to being perfect. Not another track I have to be getting back to! I'll aim for 16.2 or <16.2 seconds.



@flooodi: That time on Slick Slalom has to be very close to mine, also I think I've seen you sneak into the Top 200 overall with the Donkey, am I right? And you're getting a few decent Donkey times in too... Very good. :)

Well it is all about that moving ramp, and bounce at the end maybe. You have to lend on the ramp with a spin and the break on it in order to make it move faster.

And this one is more tricky to make everything right,.. :)

Nice and smooth run on Slick Slalom but I really liked your run on Ice Blockade.....That was quality to watch, especially the jump you made to the top of the double high-ramps (around 10-11 secs into the video) Very nicely done as always mate !! :cool: :cool:

You don't have a Donkey? I really don't know where are the parts now. Usually in the bunker, or loot wheel but I can't see them as I have all parts.

Something new today,... Overdose :)

Yeah, I've been doing all the not driven tracks with donkey. And some of the tracks just felt good to ride, so I went highest I could.
I have way more motivation with donkey than normal bikes currently. There are just some HC tracks that are over my skills, so not gonna make it to topspots of donkey LB.
But I'll fight my way for few WR's someday.

The Donkey does feel good to ride, but it's slightly challenging but somehow enjoyable.

In time, there will be a point where you will overcome the Hardcore tracks but it will take a while, but you will do them eventually, and when you are comfortable enough to take them on, but of course they are Hardcore tracks for a reason.

Your current position on the Donkey LBs is still quite good, although in fairness it could be quite higher, but I look forward to seeing you at a higher rank if you continue to do so, and just a warning, if you do get a WR, it will never last long... Although I would say you are capable of getting one, just make sure you get a WR which is capable of staying there long! :)


Well it is all about that moving ramp, and bounce at the end maybe. You have to lend on the ramp with a spin and the break on it in order to make it move faster.

Indeed so, on Slick Slalom, the timing and braking on the ramp is essential, and the bounce at the end does help too. Still haven't achieved a desirable time on there.

On Ice Blockade, very good run, at the 10 second point, it is possible to fully clear the high ramp but it's tricky. At the 14.5 second mark, it's tricky to get a desirable position on that point and hard to get it right. At the 19 to 20 second mark, I somehow sometimes struggle to clear the last bit because sometimes I don't have enough speed at that point. But it's also possible to be high enough to make sure that your head can reach the finishing line without needing to be on the ramp before the finishing line but it's also tricky to do that too. It is another one of those tracks where you need everything right to get a lethal time, and you have done it as that video shows. :) Nicely done. :)

And on Overdose, a decent run on there too, however it does take a while to get a decent run on there, and it was a smooth run on there too. An under 20 second time looks solid to get though. Nicely done on those 3 tracks lesorsier! :)


it's frustrating not being able to move forward and take advantage of your time to acquire this bike any help is welcome.

Is it Donkey blueprint pieces you need? Some Donkey blueprint pieces might still be an available prize in a current Bunker Season, not sure if it's an available prize this Season though, RL tend to put in Agent and Stallion blueprint pieces as well. Or if you look in the garage, go to the not-yet-built Donkey and you should be able to buy a blueprint piece for 25 gems apiece, although it might be excessive in terms of gems, but those are the available ways that you can get them I think, and hope that helps!

You are correct, I played Hardcore pack 2 yesterday, and those didn't even feel too hard anymore. Just some steep climbs needs some work to pass with one try.
I started to play worst ranked trakcs with donkey, my rank went up to 78! Few nice top20 times might helped a bit XD

I'll get back to HC tracks after I get all other tracks under top100, or if i fell confident enough.

These lesorsier videos are great inspiration source for me! keep em coming!

On a different note.....Don't take this the wrong way as this is just my own personal opinion but, I'm not too keen on the music that you use now, it's a bit of a mad tune that goes all over the place which sometimes drowns-out the sound of the bike, of all the different tunes you have used the first one was about the best but I think you could use, find or even make another one that suits your quality videos a lot better !!

I mean no disrespect and there's no malice here at-all as I don't dis-like the tune I just don't think it works too well with your videos is-all.....I'm just merely letting you know my thoughts ok !?

I was about to say same thing about the music... I just got new headphones and was testing and listening some acoustic test samples quite high volume and meanwhile i peaked the forums...
watched this and freaked out with so high volume. I feels that my ears almost blew out and started to bleed... Anyway it was my fault, I forgot to mute after clickin play like i usually do. :cool:

Maybe a bit slower paced song and with lower volume compared to the bike sounds... it's easier to follow the throttle with sound than the button...

Keep up the good work tho! I like these! :o I got up to rank 61 with donkey already.

This run on Trial of Courage is actually a more interesting run for me to watch, I've been trying to get a decent run or a half-decent run, and I haven't got a half-decent run until quite recently, but I always never get it the way I want to. It is an annoying track to do, and when you think the times gonna be good, it ain't nowhere near what time I want to get, and somewhere there is always one obstacle I can't do properly along the way, therefore I can't get a proper time in. It does make it clearer of what I need to do on that track though, so this is quite an important run in my case, so I'll pay a bit more attention to this particular run. And yes, another decent run as well Lesorsier. ;) And just like Dragon and flooodi said as well, you could change the music too.

Strangely, I sometimes play without the volume, and it doesn't affect my gameplay at all. I know, that is weird.

Have you been to the beginning of this thread and seen the runs Lesorsier has done from there? And I know on YT there will be LOADS more runs to see... I want to make some, but I don't have the time, unfortunately, maybe at one point I will do some.

If your at Rank 61 and rising... Then you must have done a few of the HC tracks, I assume... And have you overtaken FatalDragon yet? :D (Sorry Dragon...) I have seen some decent times of yours, Pipe Basin as an example, is very good... I think you've been rising up the Ranks quite well... Better than I expected, and as you would see now, some of the gaps on the positions nearby to you on the leaderboards where you're at are becoming bigger the higher you go in terms of points, so it's sometimes quite hard just to gain 1 position on the leaderboards... :)

Don't tell me I'll be seeing you and flooodi somewhere near the top as well... :D That giant leap and the bounce will determine the time on Drifter Valley, although as long as the rest of the run is good too. I dunno how many Lesorsier's done on this thread, he'll probably know what he's put on here. Probably tons of them. I've seen most of them and they are all excellent runs, not 1 single bad run so far, as you would expect from someone of his quality. :)

I play with the volume off pretty much all the time. Donīt get me wrong i like sound fx, in fact i love the crow sound in the town and even more the dog in the distance! Took me months to realize that dog was there because the volume has to be way up for me to hear it, and when the volume is that far up clicking on anything else is way too loud. I really do hate speaker phones with a vengeance. When i do a run on a track with the sound on all i hear is the sound the checkpoint makes when you go past it, kshiiing. Thatīs all i hear, checkpoints going "kshing kshing khsing" and that gets annoying very fast. Since i also have a deep hate relationship with earbud phones, i just mute TF.

I play about 99% without sound also, but the guide videos with sound helps a lot to hear those few moments to release throttle.

About the progress I'm going through. Just worst track by rank from bonxy (http://trials.bonxy.net/flooodi/donkey), and play it untill im happy about it, but atleast top100 time.
I have 4 tracks without time and 6 tracks with +10 faults, so basicly they are not providing me any LB points. My technique isn't yet good enough for HC tracks, YET!
Yeah, gaining ranks are getting harder. Just 2 million points could raise my rank to 53... and from there on, it's get much harder.

And yes, I have passed FatalDragon69 :cool:

To me, playing TF with the sound off doesn't make a dent in my performance, and if I want the earphones in while I'm playing TF, it would be only just to listen to music, rather than the background sounds on TF, since there isn't a lot of music on TF, which is played in the menu, the bunker, the map and after a race is finished, which is quite boring. Normally on the other Trials games, like Trials HD, Evolution and Fusion, there is always music every time that you play a track, and the music overall is always at least quite good, and I'm used to hearing the bike as well, but on the other hand, there isn't any point to listen to TF imo. I have no problems with wearing earphones or hearing the 'kshiiing' noise or any other background noise, but I want to listen to music in a game and TF just has a lack of it so I just don't listen to it. Sometimes when I do want to hear the bike on TF on crucial tracks, I do put in earphones but just have the TF background sounds on but not the TF music or any music at all, only just to concentrate on a particular track.

Well just like flooodi and FatalDragon, you will get used to the Donkey in a short while, and then you'll be making Top 10 runs before you know it. I know it takes a while, but you yourself are a decent player, so it shouldn't take long to be fully accustomed to the Donkey, if flooodi and FatalDragon can be in the Top 100, so can you! ;)

I thought you said you didn't have time to go through this thread and you looked through anyway! :D I'll check this other Donkey thread then, thanks! :)

And yes, I have passed FatalDragon69 :cool:

Top 100 times is a decent target to aim for, even on the tracks where there hasn't been 100 players on, and if you do that, at least you will be instantly in the Top 100! :D On some tracks, just trying to get a few points on some of the tracks is an absolute headache, due to the scoring system... And you will clear the hardest of the Hardcore tracks, Traction Testground, Widowmaker, Woodwork Conclave, (ughhhhh......) Metal Mayhem and Grease Transit, when you're ready to do so. Of course those five I gave as examples are actually my Top 5 hardest tracks w/ Donkey imo. And it won't be the higher ranks that will be harder to get to, it's also the points too, they will also be gradually harder to obtain, making it even harder to get to the Top 50 even.

Yeah, the HC tracks are pain to pass faultless and enough fast to gain ANY points at all. It doesn't help if i make it with 20 faults and 3min time = no LB points.
I only have passed TT and Grease Transit of those 5 hardest, and tried MM once. But I have issue with Sledridge Gorge, can't make the last jump at all, tried like 500 faults already...

Thanks for the Congrats mate! you can keep it up also, just focus one track at a time when you have some time for the donkey. Last night I "donkied" 3 tracks after wife went to nightshift just to gain one rank from 61th to 60th.

Well, I'm almost within the same boat with you. But with exeption the looong workdays, my children and wife needs my attention after my work... So basicly I "donkey" at nightime also when I feel energized enough. Usually one or 2 times per week. Some exeptions ofcourse, sometimes I have time during childrens hobbies :cool:

Well, glad to see that people are complaining about the sound and not about the runs itself. 'cause the music is not the point here, it is highly optional :)
Anyway, music I make it is not the main stream, it is Eastern Europe regional, Balkans to be specific, so nobody expect that everybody will like it.
(like you can't expect that some reggae band has a great success on KKK party)
But, I'll pay attention of loudness and donkey sound. It is the plan to make some 30 seconds of trash metal sound (Pantera like) just didn't find time yet.

And now the Big Swing,...one more track where you need luck to put everything together. Especially the swing itself. You have to hit it when you lend on it in order to make it move forward. Otherwise the jump will be short. There is lot of different ways to do it, rear wheel, front wheel, front flip,... etc... but I did not find any technique for it, it is all random, and I decide what to do on-the-fly :) and you can imagine, the success rate is not great :)

(ps I'll add track list thread link to the first post - good idea, thanks)
(pps I didn't record my best run, but this one looks good and showing the route I believe is good)

Top 100 times is a decent target to aim for

Yea that number feels about right to me. A clean well rounded run usually lands me in the 50-100 rank. Kinda looks impressive but i think comparatively itīd be like ranking in the top 400-500 in the normal LB, which feels much less impressive. Still it feels nice to go in and play a track for 10-15min and get in the top 100, very ego-friendly :cool:

Yeah it's a completely different style of riding altogether but like I said, stick with it and you'll soon see the light mate !!

Thanks! Worry not about your rank, youīre clearly a highly efficient player and once you get MM and a little bit more time to play, youīll be back up near the top 100.where you belong. cheers!

Well, glad to see that people are complaining about the sound and not about the runs itself.

(ps I'll add track list thread link to the first post - good idea, thanks)


Your runs are uncomplainable, thanks for adding the link in the OP!

I know the feeling, did The Aqueduct today in while drinking coffee after dinner, 2 runs and got into rank70 from 680. Damn it felt good :cool:
I should have settled for that tho, because it took about 25minutes to improve more...now 39th.

I'm far from amazing on the Donkey but I like to think I'm better than average now, I just haven't been playing anywhere near as much as I used to or like to as I've been crazy busy working 12hr shifts 6days a week only getting home around 11pm-12midnight'ish, at which time I'm knackered and starving but I try to play whenever I can

A player who is better than average wouldn't be Top 100, so you are much better than being better than average. Very good indeed. I have to admit, 12 hour shifts are flipping brutal, no wonder why you can't get any time in! But when you do get more time in, you'll get those Ranks back and overtake flooodi in the progress! :D


Yeah, the HC tracks are pain to pass faultless and enough fast to gain ANY points at all. It doesn't help if i make it with 20 faults and 3min time = no LB points.
I only have passed TT and Grease Transit of those 5 hardest, and tried MM once. But I have issue with Sledridge Gorge, can't make the last jump at all, tried like 500 faults already...

Pretty much have to get a faultless time to get points, maybe with 1 fault or so, but it's a weird scoring system. Forgot about Sledridge Gorge, the last obstacle is an absolute pain, I'm not sure what to suggest, Lesorsier has a run on here somewhere with that track, so that might help you. Try to get as much distance as possible and then lean forward as soon as you hit the slope, if you're approaching it 1st time and you have already got the speed to hit the slope, so you might have a better chance of doing it 1st time.


And now the Big Swing,...one more track where you need luck to put everything together. Especially the swing itself. You have to hit it when you lend on it in order to make it move forward. Otherwise the jump will be short. There is lot of different ways to do it, rear wheel, front wheel, front flip,... etc... but I did not find any technique for it, it is all random, and I decide what to do on-the-fly :) and you can imagine, the success rate is not great :)

(ps I'll add track list thread link to the first post - good idea, thanks)
(pps I didn't record my best run, but this one looks good and showing the route I believe is good)

It must have been quite hard to get a decent run in given the tricky obstacles, although I'm surprised that your original time is 18.3, no-one on Android has got it under 19 seconds w/Donkey! The 1st crucial obstacle at the 9 to 10 second mark, you need to have your front wheel in the air, so you can get more height, and the Big Swing itself, I'm not sure either but when you make contact with it, you fall off the big swing itself and making the jump short, as you said, meaning you have to do something else in order to make the Big swing useful, not too sure overall on what to do there, but you need to do something at least. And the success rate on that obstacle is actually very poor I would imagine, it's just tricky, I just wonder if it's meant to function like that or not. And yes, that's the best route. Clean, decent run, and shows what you have to do in order to get a decent time if you're lucky enough to do so, so fair play for making that run. :)

Top 100 target is decent, but it also depends on how competitive you are, like what Rank you feel you will be satisfied at given your skill rating and how comfortable you are with the Donkey. And it also depends on how far you want to go and how long you want to make this last, of course you can keep going and rising up the ranks, but it's up to the person and wherever they feel that they will be comfortable enough and if they will be up to the task. Flooodi as an example wants to get Top 100 times, and that's fine by him, he'd be satisfied by that, but what would he do next is also up to him as well, wherever he would do the HC tracks or hit Top 50 on each track, it's up to him and wherever he wants to make as much time as possible with the Donkey, again that's down to him. Not sure what your motive is here, and I know that everyone would have different goals here.

Cheers everyone. :)

This was funny. I checked The Aqueduct and i was rank 2000+ so gave it a try to see what would happen. I started with no ghost, first run crashed, second run did new PB rank 115 lol... all that in under a minute. Loaded that ghost and then did 39490742 runs that failed until finally 25min later beat the second run by 0,3seconds finishing at rank 51. Brain works well for 1min then sucks for 25minutes then works well again.

I would just like to say that these videos have given me encouragement and inspiration.

A few weeks ago I was ranked as follows: Normal-143, Donkey-30 & Crazy-29

After using bonxy's and tf.lforo's sites and concentrating on rank for the normal leaderboard and faults or medals for the Donkey & Crazy, I managed to make some major gains all-around.

This is my current ranking: Normal-93 (+3 Million), Donkey-16 (+10 Million) & Crazy-12 (+12 Million)

I would also like to add that for the Crazy leaderboard I only improved on the Agent bike because on my Nexus 7 2nd ed. 2013 the Stallion's jump feature is so unreliable.
A big thank you to this community for both providing the tools to adequately track your progress and also being a kind and helpful place Iike all the Trials forums.

To the Donkey riders out there keep track of your medals on Bonxy's site and order them by medals from Bronze to Platinum, concentrate on Platinums or on hard long tracks just try for a higher medal with as little faults as you can. Work through the more harder and probably unfinished tracks in your own time.

One last thing: Donkey - Sledridge Gorge - 0 faults - 23.216 - Platinum :)
The ending is brutal with being mainly down to luck, the other night I was so persistent and determined to do it that after about 1― hour I nailed the ending which is about a 1 in 20-30 tries for me the last jump.

Thanks for the heads up. I had tried the donkey on this track before the weekend and not surprisingly had major trouble with the last obstacle. I thought it was mostly just me being a noob but maybe not. After reading this i think iīll leave this track for much later. :) Congrats on your scores, very nice indeed.

Thats what the videos are there for! Decent progress btw, I have seen you climb up a lot recently, I've seen you sweep past the 150M point mark, nice work.

Bonxy's site is so useful, Longshot Lake is showing as Bronze for some reason, even though it should be Platinum. What I will add on here is you can also start from your worst ranked track and go from there, or those which aren't Platinum but tend to mind that a few are really difficult to Platinum-ize, like Permafrost Climb, Chilled Cliffs, some of the Hardcore tracks, especially the Tier 2 and 3 ones. Or if you want oodles of points, you can do the ones that are between 22 and 30.7 seconds, and work on those.

A faultless time on Sledridge Gorge is an instant win and feels like an achievement in itself.


...and little more of inspiration :)
(don't be discouraged by middle jump,... it is hard) ;)

That jump is actually more difficult than it looks, although it's do-able but definitely one of the trickier time-savers in the game from the looks of it, it must have taken a while to get that in the run, but it was executed very very nicely... I wonder how tricky it is practically and how hard I will find it... Now Icy Foothills is on my to-do list again... Nice one lesorsier! ;)

It will make anybody look like that, but it's because the bike isn't suited to the slope and it becomes a pain 10000-fold. Did you check the other thread in which someone has the same problem? I gave an explanation there and Lesorsier has even put his video there too, if that helps...

I did see the video Lesorsier posted on that thread, iīm glad he posted it because i was thinking Sledridge Gorge was actually Frosty Plumbing, meaning i thought the thread was discussing the last obstacle on Frosty Plumbing with the sliding log. When i saw the video i realized i had the two tracks confused.

I read your explanation and watched the video, they help for sure. As is the case with many of Lesorsierīs videos he makes it look easy so the last obstacle kinda goes by "unnoticed". I even played on that track for 10-15 min a few days before the thread and even though i failed that last obstacle 99% i just dismissed it as me being a noob. Iīll take your word and NobbyHobsonīs word for how difficult that last obstacle actually is though and worry about working on this track later. Still have lots of easier tracks to catch up on.

Unnoticed? Like as if he just breezes past that last obstacle despite it being so tricky, but I just wonder how long it took him to get a decent run on a track like that, a while maybe, with that last obstacle being an absolute headache. But trust me, you are not a n00b, it's most definitely the obstacle. :D

And yeah, it is wise to save that for later, much much later, but I would say do the hardest tracks last, from the likes of The Quagmire, Hilltop Ghetto, Permafrost Climb, Chilled Cliffs, Traction Testground, Metal Mayhem, Fest Mine, Casino Rooftop, Dark Machine, Balance Avenue, the 12 Hardcore Pack tracks, and all of the island tracks except Fault Village, that's pretty much all of the tricky ones, I would say 28 very hard, extreme and super hardcore tracks in total. Until you feel comfortable doing some of these tracks that is, and after you've done the easier tracks as well, but it's up to you. :) I can surely say that you might find maybe 1 or 2 obstacles in the entire game in which you will find trickier then the slope on Sledridge Gorge, like the start of Metal Mayhem, or the various obstacles on Woodwork Conclave, the amount of times that I struggled on those obstacles drove me insane. Not sure which is the trickiest, I'm sure people might have their own opinions...

And after a couple of 15-minute sessions on Icy Foothills, my time is 17.1 secs, but the amount of times I've cleared that time-saver completely: 0. I can get a wheel on it and go from there, but I have never cleared it completely, and it's so hard to execute it or the way lesorsier executed it. Back to Icy Foothills for me...

well,...everything is about entry point on the slide and the spin from previous jump. And the slide itself. But put all together is not easy.
As regards Sledridge Gorge,...if you remember when we made the Donkey, many people complained that some tracks were impossible to finish.Sledridge Gorge was among them.
The easiest way is to use spin from previous jump. If you stop, it becomes harder ;)

Now, this one is not so difficult to finish, but there is so many spots where you lose time. So putting all together in order to get good time, becomes hard. This route probably is not the best one, but it was best for me so far.. .;)

I think you should be given a ton of credit for pulling that time-saver off on Icy Foothills on that run, I underestimate how hard it really is to actually perfect that time-saver because it really is absolutely solid, and the success rate is actually a lot lower than I anticipated, but it's just about do-able.

As for Hops of Fury, great run as usual, I'm not sure which is the best route, however at the 5 second mark, I would actually land on the 2nd curve after where you landed, but that's just me, although you did get a great time, but maybe it could be one of those tracks where both routes are just as good, give or take a few milliseconds, as for the rest of the run, looks good, that's another track on the to-do list again. Nicely done lesorsier. :)

Thanks man...It wouldn't be right to give credits to me, except for making the video, and make available to anyone to see. Otherwise you have to follow some of top players ghost, and you have to be very close to actually see what is happening. And follow the no.1 ghost and pay attention of his riding is... not easy task to do :)

You are right for the Hops of Fury, 2nd curve is probably faster. Some players lend even further, on the middle of the ramp. But it becomes harder to stabilize the bike after that. Then on 12th second it is possible to bounce, which is faster and then on next obstacle is possible to front flip over it. Just put all of this in one ride,... maybe I'll come back to it one day.

Now, one more route that can be discussed. 14th second. I was thinking of single bounce instead of two. Maybe is possible,.. maybe not... everybody is welcome to try :)

Well, I meant that you deserve to get massive credit for the video, which has a near-impossible time-saver in which only a very small handful of people have done successfully, it's a very useful video for anybody. :) I don't normally follow ghosts anyway, but I don't think anybody on Android has a ghost with that time-saver nailed neatly, but there will be some who will come close, but it's probably harder to get that run when no-one's ghost has that time-saver in, it won't be as useful, unless you know what to do to get that right, but since there is your video, it's possible to know exactly what players will have to do, and to show that time-saver is possible, and of course it has helped me as well, since there wouldn't be a ghost with that in, meaning players on Android would have had to use an outside source other than ghost runs to help us.

KarTanK's ghost must have had that time-saver in, since he's #1 on Icy Foothills - iOS - Donkey. It is hard to pay attention to every little detail to that ghost run on every obstacle but it's also harder without a ghost to guide you, since you don't know what techniques or routes or which time-savers is best, so I was using what techniques I thought was best and my own skill and judgement as well, my time on Icy Foothills has that time-saver done neatly, probably the 1st person to do so on Android... Maybe... :)

Another video already, are you spoiling us? :D Black Forest, another neat run. On the 14th second, it does look possible to get a single bounce in on the slope but it depends on how useful the bounce is before that, since it will determine where on the slope you will land, the higher the better, but I'm gonna say it's unlikely to get a good bounce that will get you enough height, and then to land neatly onto the next bit as well, but since it's another track on my to-do list again, I'll give it a try. Very nice indeed. :)

Congratz if you did it,.. ;) I am not sure how many people did the jump, I followed Kartak, he did it on IOS.

Now I give you something that Kartank didn't do. (I mess up the end, so I am slower at the end)
But I think you can find it on Android. Some time ago Akrasia posted his version of it in TFG group. It was not clear jump and he mess up the end also, and it was slower then his best run. So you can check if he did it well after,...
Just to mention, it is very unlikely to do it in a first try... ;) Good luck...good spin and the right bounce point is the key ;)

Yeah, I did the time-saver on Icy Foothills and got a good time when I did that, well that's what I meant to say in the last post I posted, but the time could be slightly better, but it's a Donkey WR on Android for now... Not even Akrasiia can beat it, not sure why, but Akrasiia would normally beat a WR like that in an instant, but somehow he hasn't yet, so it must be that incredibly awkward time-saver which is obviously understandable, but actually quite surprising. The amount of players who would have done that time-saver, I imagine it will only be in single-figures still... It is a near impossible time-saver to conquer, mind... :)

As for Urban Jungle, decent run again. Akrasiia's time is 29.4 on this, I think, so it's possible that Akrasiia has done a run better than the video that he made, so I'll check his ghost run. As for the time-saver where you do that bounce, it looks tricky, but definitely do-able. The technique you use at the start where you lean back and then lean forward on that slope looks good too. The other thing is, it's a simple track, but the ending can easily be messed up if you don't get the distance on the penultimate jump and if you don't get in the right position before the obstacle right before the finish line. My target will be sub 30-seconds, seems reasonable. I'll get to it when I can. :)

Ah now I see you on bonxy, congratz... just to know, the day I post the video, android WR was above 17, by Akrasiia. The day after he improved to 16.8 (I guess he saw the video) and you beat him, so well done :)

It seem that it was not so hard for you...so let's try something harder. "near impossible" better describes jump I post next. As far as I know, nobody did it. I can't get it clear, but even in sloppy version is much faster then regular route. I mess up the end like usual, so I am not faster at the end... but that is not my point anyway...

Nice to see someone actually make the jump on video. I got it about week ago in bunker while fooling around. I accidently flew too high and just started doing frontflips and got a backwheelgrap from the barrel. I couldn't reproduce it afterwards. Have tried some several hundred times...

Not sure about that, GTdave probably held the WR at some point, he has a time of 16.8 as well, but then Akrasiia had beaten it by a few milliseconds at some point, then I just beaten that WR. But thanks. :)

Another video, you really are spoiling us. :D Yes, the time-saver on Rooftops does look challenging,,. but the technique required is very similar to the time-saver on Icy Foothills, except with the addition of landing on the barrel on the back wheel, and it isn't gonna be easy too, but challenge accepted! Don't get me wrong, the time-saver on Icy Foothills as I said before was very tricky, but near-impossible could be described for both time-savers, this one looks equally difficult too. My time needs improving on Rooftops anyway. And yes decent run too, even when you actually done the time-saver multiple times, I think you should get extra credit for that. ;) But a very helpful video indeed, and it shows that time-saver can be possible too. And right at the end of the video, I know how it feels when you got a good run going, you know it's gonna be good, and then it gets messed up near the end! ;)

Yes I tried Rooftops and did it, got a 17.4 time with it, then I did it again, got a quicker 17.4 time without the time-saver, so I have to do it again with the time-saver. I also got a time of 29.9 on Urban Jungle by doing the bounce but slightly unsuccessfully, but I want to do it again with that bounce successfully, I'll do those 2 tracks again sometime soon, but not now. :) Also, I'm not sure which is the harder time-saver, the time-saver on Icy Foothills to me is still the hardest time-saver, the one on Rooftops is annoying, but the success rate feels slightly higher imo, the one on Icy Foothills you have to do everything correct and precise, and it did take me a while to do as well.

Already looked at your Snowball Ride run, very good indeed, and showing that important time-saver as well, as for the final bit, I would actually worry about just completing that final obstacle, however I would normally put the back wheel on it first then lean forward to gain the momentum. My biggest concern on that track is the wooden plank 8 to 9 seconds in, that's the thing that sometimes doesn't work with me. Of course the time-saver again is very similar to the time-savers on Icy Foothills and Rooftops, but this one is easier to perform and has a much better success rate, and this one didn't take me long for me to get right either. Nicely done lesorsier. :)

not sure which one is harder,... My guess is Rooftops, for one simple reason - nobody do it ;)
Unfortunately you can't play my ghost (it is different then the video). As I said, it is much faster then regular route. Kartank caught me on finish line (for my mistake after the jump)

As regards Snowball Ride, if you look closely I lend on back wheel at the end. Just, as platform has an angle, there is very big chance of smashing the nose to the next platform :)
Wooden plank shouldn't be the problem if you have enough speed, which you get from previous jump.

Now, one more track with tricky swings and suspicion routes (going down could be better maybe)

But nobody did the Icy Foothills time-saver either, but I guess I must have got lucky with the time-saver on Rooftops I guess, so I don't know, let's just say that both time-savers are improbably hard and leave it there. :)

And for Curves of Destiny, nice run. Another track with multiple routes. I think you've got the best route there... It's more horizontal... So if you went down instead of going horizontal, you might have a slower time... I'm not sure how you even nailed the tricky swings near the start but that is very well executed. I would normally go down at the 9 to 10 second mark in the video, but I'm not sure if that would save time. It also looked like it could have been finished slightly quicker, but that's still solid. Nice. ;)

@FatalDragon69 Thanks man, I needed much more then a few to make it look like this,..just keep practice :)

@HeaverBeaver115 KarTank did Icy Foothills jump on IOS, (not sure for others) but he miss Rooftops jump. You think he didn't try? :) But I agree, both of them a hard to perform.
And you are right for the ending of Curves of Destiny, it should be faster with some bounce-slide-something.... (mess up the finish line syndrome hit me again)

Great vid, your ride seems so controlled everytime, how many tries you used before got this run?
Is there other way to get over the highest part @14sec? I can't make the landing correct, it's stucks to the wood or a bit short and I have to take backwheelgrap to make it over.
I can't see me ever platting this with donkey, still having 0.3 sec over the plat limit with berzerker.

But finally, it's good to see that you are human also. I have to settle the bike so ofter to prepare for jumps like you did there at the last hard obstacle. :cool:

Now, Widowmaker again. At the time I made the first video, question was just how to finish the track with the Donkey. This one is about how to plat it :)

This is weird, I did this a few days ago and made a major improvement on this track where I shaved 16/17 seconds off but still needed a bit of improvement, I still need to Platinum-ize it, I'm only less than 2 seconds away from Platinum. Does this tell me that I need to go back on this track again? :D

It is nice of you to go back to a track and improve on it as well, it does help a lot, especially since it's a Platinum time as well, and it's a lot neater and precise. Most of the track is luck based though, especially the 4th obstacle where the only thing you can do is get your back wheel on it to send you across, since it's another of those obstacles which is awkward for the Donkey and where you need to resort to improvisation in order to pass it. I sometimes get stumped by the 6th obstacle at the 19 to 20 second mark in the run, but what you've done is lean forward at the curved ramp, sometimes I do that and then hit the middle bit with the back wheel but after that it doesn't work or I fall short so that's an annoying obstacle for me in particular, so maybe I would say that those movements need to be precise and shift at the right times as well. You didn't suffer from finish line syndrome in this run, it is wise to stop and think like you did on the last obstacle so you finished as neatly as you did and you still got a Platinum medal, if you rush something as important like that final section and mess it up, well you would instantly regret it and/or smash the phone. If you had to do this track again then you would have no time to stop to get those precious seconds off in the last section of obstacles. Great stuff. :)


Is there other way to get over the highest part @14sec? I can't make the landing correct, it's stucks to the wood or a bit short and I have to take backwheelgrap to make it over.

This obstacle stumps a lot of players, even I think this obstacle is the most ridiculous on the track. The method on how lesorsier tackled the obstacle is perhaps the best and safest and the most efficient method to do it, even if it doesn't look very efficient, but it's perhaps the only way you can get across, where you need to lean forward on the slope and then get the back wheel on the log just to get across, it looks like that it's the only way... I don't think I've got my back wheel on there the same way you can get with the Berserker normally... Again it's just awkward, the size of the wheels has something to do with it, and it's the same reason why you can't do the obstacle before that normally, because of the size of the wheels.

10-13-2016, 11:57 PM
@ flooodi I can send you 9 min raw video, so you can see the problematic points as well as number of tries.
I guess there are many ways for the jump you asked. The best would be use speed from previous jump and fly over it. But that previous is my biggest problem in this track. As you can't use Berserker technique due to small Donkey wheels.
...somebody has doubts about am I human? ;)))

@HeaverBeaver115 Well, year ago I also believed that all this jumps is luck based. But now, I have quite good success rates on all of them except on - the 3RD (not 4TH). This is still luck for me, as you can notice from the video. On the 19-20 maybe you don't need to lean forward, but you must hit the box somehow.
I didn't want o ruin the run at the end, but next time I won't stop. There is lot of time left on this track.

Now, I can't catch my own ghost on this one. Toilet runs can be really fast :) But this look nice, and this track doesn't allow to mess up the end ;) as this ending is the point ;)

@lesorsier: I believed that some of the obstacles were luck-based, not all of them, but some. And I don't like the 3rd obstacle on Widowmaker either, I use a different approach, I forward-flip, but I land on my back wheel, and it does work but the success rate is ok but not great, and it takes a while to recover as well and it isn't a recommended technique, but I cba to bunny-hop that anyway. But I think both the 3rd and 4th obstacles are still luck-based, the 4th obstacle is a nightmare, to me it's either hit or miss. I don't like the 6th obstacle either, but at least it isn't as ridiculous as the others, but it's still harder than a few obstacles, you need to be almost Ninja-like to nail it...

As for Forbidden Path, I actually hate this track. The run is excellent, and you totally nailed the last obstacle as well, which I know is very tricky at best. And the starting few seconds looks very nice as well, the start that everyone would hope for, but to put those 2 sections in a run and to get it right is one of the hardest runs to achieve with the Donkey. I'm not looking forward to this one again...

And Safe Escape, I noticed 2 things that you did differently, 1. the slope 4 to 5 seconds in and 2. skipping 1 obstacle at the 7 to 8 second mark. I'm not sure if it is faster, but the time is still faster than anybody has achieved on Android. Now after you hit the slope momentarily, it does look slow after you hit the slope but you still would have been quicker, and I'm not sure about the 7 to 8 second mark, but if your alternative route works, I have you to thank. Great run, even though the time froze at the end, but at least you sneaked in a 12.999 second time in! :)

I wonder if you are human or not... ;)

@HeaverBeaver115

- Widowmaker, frontflip-backwheel is wrong way (you lose too much time after) The best would be to connect 3rd and 4th, use speed from 3rd and fly over 4th, which I did it a few times but crashed later.
- Forbidden Path is not that difficult once you understand what you have to do. Everything is in lending spots. If you hit the right entry spot,(before the final jump for example) the last jump just happen
- And route on Save Escape was a little harder for me, much harder then regular route. Problem with regular route is that you have to stop anyway in one point, so all previous speed has no sense. So why jump back and push forward, then stop anyway, when you can push forward directly,..it looks slow but after you don't break...well, let everybody try, then we can decide, which one is faster,.. ;)

As I didn't get any new track from event,.. #$%@# I play some old tracks these days,.. :)
This one you can consider luck-based ;)

On Widowmaker, I know I said it isn't recommended to do what I did, and I don't like getting dragged by my back wheel anyway... If I do go back to that, then I'll do the bunnyhop on the 3rd obstacle, although it is hard to get that right, but it is the best way, and I know it is as well, but I don't do it because I was used to doing the other thing there instead.

On Forbidden Path, I know what to do, but I just don't like the track, and the time-saver near the end and the fact that everything else needs to go according to plan as well. The time-saver near the end is tricky but not as hard as the others mentioned earlier.

On Safe Escape, I'm still not sure which route is best, but you're right about the slope, the sooner you go of it, the better, and it is difficult to go off the slope and go over the next set of obstacles, including the spinning saw AND go back to a decent speed after you've left the slope with decent positioning as well onto the next obstacles. It is hard to get it right though, but I should think it's worth it.

As for Underground Slopes, great run, but the only thing that is luck-based there is the crucial time-saver that you do with the Bronco, but it's harder to pull off with the Donkey because the Donkey can only just about reach that and that's with leaning back and forward at the correct time, but I agree that you might have to get lucky there, as well as the nose-dive at the end too. I also liked where you did the same thing at the 4 to 5 second mark.

Also I saw the post you made where you didn't get anything in the event, that is unlucky, despite you getting the top 1%, I think you should have earned something at least, but it is down to luck though unfortunately. But sorry to hear that lesorsier.

thanks man, idea of this is go straight (with enough speed), and without, you finish like you said, nose-diving ;)

@HeaverBeaver115 That's why the 3rd jump on Widowmaker is the most problematic for me. I always try bunny.

Long wheelie on Donkey is always luck, at least for me. Kartank do some interesting thing here (Underground Slopes) He go straight, without wheelie, just at the end of platform he do something that it looks like wheelie + bunny (it is hard to follow him and look at him at the same time) and jump very low, touch the edge of the next platform and push him self straight through finish line...hm, little hard to explain, have to see this.

Well I am again in 1%, Hope to have more luck this week.

Well, if I'm on Widowmaker again which is quite likely, then I'll get in the habit of Bunnyhopping on the 3rd obstacle, should have been doing that in the 1st place.

Underground Slopes, I think I know what you mean, and I can see how that works, I wonder if anyone on Android did what you described what KarTanK was doing... The times on Android looks more competitive than on iOS for that particular track, so maybe KarTanK wasn't the only one who did that, but I'll check. I'll keep note of it when I get to it, as Underground Slopes isn't on my hit-list right now.

As for Devil Hopping, now you've got a case of first-time syndrome :D, and the run looks pretty good too, clean, fast and useful as always, and it's more impressive since it's 1st time too and I bet that felt good as well. I like the little back-wheel clip on the log at the 14 second mark, except I would land before the log and then shift backwards and then forwards at the log, but what you've done there is more efficient and quicker, but a little bit riskier but it's better as well. Right at the end, I tend to lean back and forth on the final slope just slightly before the finish line, just so I can get my head past the finish line sooner for a quicker finish. Also at the 5th second, I normally do a massive jump but I think landing on the slope in the middle of that leap is better than doing one massive jump, since you're spending less time in the air, less air-time = quicker time overall. Nice one! :)

@lesorsier: On Devil Hopping, the back wheel trick you mentioned is faster.

Unstable Tunnel, it's been a while since I've done this. Superb run, and neatly done too. The 3 second jump between 10 and 13 seconds is nicely done as well, and I know that's not an easy jump to make because you could land on that obstacle a little short, but nice technique. As for the different ways to finish it, I don't know which way would be the best way to finish it, they all look good, but I would say the 2nd finisher looks quickest, looks faster and it finishes in mid-air as well, but I would also say that the last way that you finished is the slowest, since it didn't look particularly fast. Nice set of variations of the finishers, an interesting thing to put in, I think.

As for Itchy Jaws, I don't have it yet so I don't want to spoil it by watching it, I'll watch it whenever I get it as a prize from the MC Event. Anyway, excellent work on Unstable Tunnel and the alternative finishers! :)

11-08-2016, 11:46 PM
you are probably right for 2nd way,.. it should be the fastest. But the last way looks slow because the lending was not clear and it slowed me down. In case of clear jump,.. well, who knows ;)

Very nice run. I'm looking at the 7 to 8 second mark and that to me looks like a tricky time-saver there. I did this track a few days ago, while looking at the #1 ghost on this track which also did a similar thing there as well, but I could barely do that there at all. It just shows that a sub-17 second time is possible.

Also a good thing to keep it Halloween-based as well. By the way, did you obtain 5 sets of nut parts as your prizes last week in the event, so was it a 5 of a kind? ;) Anyway good luck tomorrow in terms of getting tracks, everyone should get a chance of new tracks imo, the fact that anyone can miss out on a track isn't fair as it is, but it shouldn't be that way.

It is not so difficult if you do right the previous jump. As always, the key is entry point and spin you already have.

Anyway I had to buy Itchy Jaws for 120 gems (so ridiculously overpriced...) so I didn't really look at your run on Itchy Jaws until now. Everything there is so clean and the run just looks almost perfect. That looks like a cross-platform WR I think... ;) It's another one of those tracks where it's so hard to get it right...

Good run on Derailed too. I had the Android WR for 17 days until you-know-who beaten it. (I mean Akrasiia.) I actually don't like the obstacles at the 6 to 7 second mark because I never get it right there for some bizarre reason, but it's another tricky track though, but well-designed I think.

And Homegrown, so very tricky to get right, and I always go wrong somewhere, which makes it a particularly annoying track in my case. But it's a very quick run, and right at the end where you paused and then went over the final obstacle is a wise move, but it means you have to nail it the next time you beat it while on the move, but an under 26 second time I think is possible but it's not a very suitable track for the Donkey at all, but this track is mainly ideal for the Berserker. And apparently, this is an experimental time-saver and I haven't done this but it's possible to complete the 2nd roof jump at the start as well as the 1st roof jump, I saw a ghost run which Akrasiia did and went over 2 roofs at the start of the track, but because it's so hard to complete with a really low success rate and I'm not even sure if it does save time, it's not really worth doing overall, but you could try it if you want to. But your route there is the best route so far, and the leap you did at around the 7.5 second mark is superb as well and also essential since you don't have to stop and do the obstacle afterwards when you land right on top of it. Very well done lesorsier, and I know that's an adequately challenging track at the best of times. :)

@HeaverBeaver115 Thanks man.
Maybe it was some WR at the moment I made the video, but there is sub 17 times now (on ios at least) (Itchy jaws)

6-7 sec on Derailed, it could be better way maybe to do it,. we will see...and Homegrown requires more time. I did 1st+2nd jump time saver, but I don't think that is faster then slide. As you said, you have to stop after that. I think, the most problem I had was on 1st jump.


...and a bit of last Xmas :)

@lesorsier: Well on Itchy Jaws, your time there is still good enough for #1 on Android!

And good runs on The Bell Pit and on Impact Attics too! The Bell Pit at around the 7 to 12 second mark and when you go over the pipe there looks the most sufficient way of getting a quick time. And on Impact Attics, so many choices, so many routes, the rear-wheel bounce you did there near the end looks interesting and covers the horizontal distance nicely, but not sure which is the best route since you could do anything there. I think landing on the platform slightly after where you land at the 16 second mark might be an interesting option, since you could accelerate quickly again.

Now there is something we need to talk about. I'm aware that there is a certain 'video' of mine on TFG. A video of Impact Attics. And I know that Akrasiia posted the video I made there as well, since I did send it to Akrasiia. I bet that surprised you guys there! :D Now I am able to make 'reliable' videos now since I have a much better, more decent phone than the piece of crap I had before! (It's not Samsung either...) Now I know the quality there isn't the best but that I'm currently fiddling a little bit with the quality and all that so I hopefully don't lag when I record the video/my runs. And I know what you're thinking, as much as I would like to join TFG, but still not right now, but you still could call it a sign that I am coming... ;)

Now I'm aware those on TFG have seen it but for those who haven't seen it, here it is:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B6Xokql0DpxEcGIzWUlCNy11VW8/view?usp=sharing

As you can see, I take a different route rather than lesorsier's route, but the last bounce at the end? Unintentional. But it got me the Android WR at the time... Now Akrasiia has hit a 19.5 time there... And I have made a few videos already as well, but I'll do whatever I can, and go forward from there.

Cheers! :)

Excellent. :D :cool: I heard Auris was complaining that he did the bounce/route that lesorsier did, but that I finished it in a quicker time than he did! By about 0.4 seconds too! How do I know that? I'm not telling you... :D

Anyway, as I said, I have done a few more videos. Actually done 1 video for each of the Midnight Circuit tracks, so I've done one for Lollygagging, Acrobat Quarter and Fenland Flail, although I'm not quite satisfied by the runs yet but maybe they might do for now. I do plan to make a lot of videos too so I am working on a few of them in my own time, and maybe do something with these videos and put them to good use. And also thinking about a Donkey tutorial too.

But you did say 'more' so more you shall get! And you said please as well. :D In that case you shall get a tasty video heading your way! I did this one VERY recently... ;)

Here is my video for Exile Pass: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B6Xokql0DpxEbi1qRlNGYW9aV0U/view?usp=sharing

This really isn't the easiest track on the planet but this does require patience. And the Mushroom at the 2nd obstacle is unavoidable, you do have to go onto it but it's the easiest obstacle by far and everything else is actually quite tricky. Hope the video is good! (And I hope you guys can see it...)

Cheers. :D

I was going to ask the same thing. Like his account hes been disabled or something... you was the last to reply to his post, what he said? maybe some bug in new update...

Anyway,... I was playing the new track these days,... probably there is something better to do here, some bounce at the end or something,... feel free to try,.. :)

What he said hmm... well you know HeaverBeaver, his posts are never short haha... he said many things which i canīt remember. The important thing is he tried to post a video and then the forum gave him some error messages and some problems and then now suddenly he is gone! I mean he is still here and he can stlil read the forum but all his posts are gone and he canīt post anymore. If you use the search tool to look for him will see he is on many threads but when you click on the thread his posts are not there. He has messaged me privately so thatīs how i know. Letīs hope a CM can help solve this.

Really? Not intentionally. I just try to get in as much information as possible, but I never thought my posts are that long! :)

And thanks again CaptainWeelie. :) It is a mighty relief. And yes, even I can see my own posts again and post my posts again, if this post has been posted haha!

Anyway... @lesorsier: The time-saver at the start and when you leave the elevator are the most important elements to Torn Canyon, but the route you have done is the best route, since I have a similar time to yours. Leave the elevator early and shift the rider and the bike so then you will make it over the gas tank and downwards onto the slope. Not also that, the Donkey Leaderboards for Torn Canyon on ANDROID hasn't been properly updated in ages so it's always been saying that 35 have played it when it isn't 35, weird.

And yes, I do believe that I am back! But I did believe that I was going to be back eventually, I had no doubts about that! But I won't do any more links if it was that to begin with, so that there won't be a small possibility that it could happen again.

Cheers! :)

Yea this is quite annoying, Torn Canyonīs LB wonīt update. I did a plat run there and got points normally and my name shows up on the LB, but nobody else shows up (aside from the 35 players you mentioned). On bonxy it only shows the 35 players. Actually i think those 35 players had the track before it was released so they arenīt even "official" runs. Please fix RL!

Welcome back HeaverBeaver115 :)

Well, I guess we are all waiting to see some videos, so don't bother with google drive, put them on YT or Vimeo or whatever.
Good ride on Exile Pass but you should see Badboy's run on it, it is crazy fast. For some reason I can't find it on his youtube, you should join TFG to see it.

Anyway, I didn't do any video since last update because I can't play on my old iPad any more (ios 7, and I don't want to update and lose jailbreak). I started to play on the phone, but it was disaster.
And guess what, at the end I bought the new iPad (I needed upgrade anyway) but it is much thinner, so I need some time to use to it,.. :)

It does feel weird when it says that you're #1 there, but when the leaderboards didn't update, you don't know where you really are, and how many played it...

But NOW the leaderboards on Torn Canyon with the Donkey on Android HAVE updated, which is much better! So the number of players there the last time I saw it was 331, NOT 35, and I'm #2 there. No guesses to who is #1 haha! Torn Canyon wasn't the only track which had jumbled up times either, there were a few tracks which were like that as well, in-fact, even the Global leaderboard has been re-scrambled.

And the '35' who were on there, were probably on there for ages, some players there did the track 1 or 2 levels less than they currently show on the Donkey Leaderboards right now... And if they were already there, they must have been there at least a year imho.

Cheers. I'll put it on Google Drive for cloud storage purposes only but that's it, no more links or the same thing could happen to me again, so it's not worth it, except for YT links, of course.

I'm aware of BadBoy's time there, but I do want to see HOW he did it in 14.1 secs, although that does put me off a little bit, because if he's done it quicker than my time, would there be any benefit to watch my run as well as his? And btw, when Akrasiia posted my run on Impact Attics on TFG, take that as a sign that I'm on my way... ;)

I'm also surprised that iOS 7 doesn't work now, which must be a total bummer. I can't imagine what playing on an iPad must feel like, the screen is huge, and I think my screen on my new phone is huge as well... I'm still getting used to my new phone still, but I'm still changing the setup controls every 10 minutes! :D Enjoy the new iPad! :)

And this is important: I have made a few videos already, but I still gotta check if it's suitable to put them on, and if the footage/content I'm putting in would be satisfactory. And I know a few of you must have seen my run on Exile Pass, but I know the quality there isn't the best, but it is the best I can do for now. I have made 10 so far, so hopefully I can put them on YT in time for Christmas! (Hopefully, that's my plan, I do want them on there soon anyway.) :)

Cheers.
