Cheers,


where is that map you guys have been drawing on? i will draw mine up.
MasterGT -- your path and my path are almost identical. you start by going around the big loop to the left then backing up a little, whereas i start by backing up a little and then going around the big loop to the right. after that we are the same. so our paths are almost exactly the same.



I googled it at work - so i dont remember exactly what site had it...but i did find it again at IGN:

Doublez1 -- how many seconds did you waste driving over to the other entrance?
but i have to admit, it is a unique approach.



I thought of taking that route - but never bothered. Also - you dont have to "exit" the maze in order to finish it (I think). So you can just drive around and hit the last cone wherever you want.

That's some killer art work there Doublez1. I think I got your unique route figured out.

Re: License Challenge XIV - LOST --- WITH RESULTS!

Surprisingly I didn't see anyone with the same line as mine. I ran this time more than a year ago, but as I remember, I used the replay's line. As a quick tip, on the first turn, I go right then left and brake then go backward then forward then left on the second turn...
I may try to upload my replay or draw my line whenever I have the time. It might take a while though as I don't really have the time for video games.

Anyway, have fun playing.

Hi, One of the new guys here. Must say I'm impressed with your times.

I have yet another route, which I'm sure I could cut a lot of time off since I neve made a clean run.

Sorry I don't have it drawn up but using the map others have used (numbers from rmk700's map):
Start @ 1
Left @ 2
Right @ 5, long straight
Right @ 13, long straight
Right @ 12, long straight
Right @ 11 through Esses to 10 then to 7
Left to 8
Reverse & right turn to line up with passage by 8
Right turn, Left @ 5 (pick it up if missed)
Straight past entrance, Left @ T, tap 4 if I missed it turning into esses
Reverse to pick up 3 (count should be 33 now)
Forward through 4, jog right 11, left @ 12
Right @ 14 .... follow on 15, 16 out @ 17

Well here it is (I think)

Welcome to the GT forum, Aquaholic!

I count about 63 cones for your path, but it has the potential to be less, depending on exactly how you run your car. So, I would appreciate it if you ran yours for about half an hour, to see what times you could get and exactly how many cones you cover doing it.

For example, you could get a shorter course if you avoid hitting the second cone, then pick it off on your second time through that path. You have more cones like this, too.

Cheers,

My thoughts were to keep up momentum, take the widest turns & avoid braking & reverses.

You're right about picking up cones on the second pass, it allowed me to keep going if I was slightly off line & get it later. I usually picked up #2 on the second pass since I was cuting the corner to make sure I got #5 and had good speed into the straight. Picking up #4 on a wide turn into the esses meant I could carry a bit more speed into them & didn't have to go quite so far before backing up for #3 on that pass.

The hardest part in my path is timeing the turn during backing from #8 to line up for the opening -- mess that & you loss 5 seconds easily.

ok, so here is mine.  this map is not 100% accurate i have noticed.  but i put my path on there the best i could.  i overlap 65 cones on my path.  i still can't believe everyone used a different path!
this sig is my first winning picture of any kind on this board!

Ok, I updated the chart in post #45, to what I think the cone count is for olofrogmorton (65), Aquaholic (66) and Doublez1 = (66 -I think). olofrogmorton, I had yours at 68, for some reason, but tonight I counted less.

If anyone else can post their path, we'd all appreciate it.
Some variations and their associated times are still missing.

Cheers,

Also, I've counted my comes numerous times, and I only get 60 for me. Hmm..
