Regardless, the specific track submitted to had a link that took you to the leaderboards. I liked that feature. Could that be something that is brought back? If it was a game you are interested in, it was kind of cool to see what scores they had beaten. Thanks

That feature is still there.

Biggest jump - which is just airtime but was titled Biggest jump should just be removed since it's labeled as Air Time in the game and not biggest jump. So it's just a second way of keeping track of the same thing but in a smaller amount that can't be proved.

  • alarm

There is a Top 10 ranking for Biggest Jump for both Fast and Furious Super Cars and Super Cars.

What I should have done Biggest Jump on any attempt.

There are 7 tracks in all with Top 10 rankings on the arcade racing game Fast and Furious Super Cars and Super Cars on the game

1. Fastest Race time

2. Most Airtime

3. Most Tricks

4. Most Drift Time

5. Biggest Drift Chain

6. Biggest Drift ( In one direction)

7. Biggest Jump


Heck It out for yourself John McAllister redelf

Must have a few specific tracks then. I'll see if I can find those specific ones and post them here. I know the submissions I am referring to had that specific track URL, but the link didn't work. I never paid attention to how long they had sit in the queue so maybe it was a something before the new update.

Biggest Jump(on one jump attempt) can never be confirmed because of the faulty programming of sometimes using 100's and sometimes using 1000's digit. This is also considered air time. The results page only shows total air time, so we can't confirm that there wasn't multiple jumps that added .005 to a jump at any time.

Biggest Drift(in one direction) this can be confirmed in the results page but JJT didn't always wait for the game to show that information, or he didn't rank on the leader board so it didn't show up. Should be mandatory that the video show the results page for biggest drift moving forward so it can be confirmed.

Biggest Drift Chain - can be confirmed on the biggest drift chain if in top 10 scores of results page


Why JJT always says it rounds up but in this picture it didn't, so we can't trust the rounding up theory on any other type of score that has 100's or 1000's in the score.

JJT claimed the score of 15.7 and didn't question the race results page which showed 15.7 and not 15.71 if it would have rounded up the score.


Most tricks - can be confirmed by the most tricks results page.


Anyways I hope this helps, I'm not sure what I'm trying to get across or accomplish. I'm guessing that maybe the biggest jump on one attempt should be removed as it can never be confirmed only argued over what the amount of the jump was. All the other tracks seem like they are good. This is all just my opinion and what I have observed of the game.

If Admin would like me or someone else to do a much more thorough examination of this game just ask and I'll see if that is something I'm able to do or not.

Thank you this is helpful.

For the moment there is nothing else to do. @JJT_Defender has not responded to our inquiry so there are currently no further steps to take in evaluating this.

By your own omission John McAllister you do not know nothing about the Fast and Furious Super Cars / Super Cars arcade racing game stick to that ok. The game does round up like all arcade racing games but not all the time.

John McAllister there are top 10 records for all 7 tracks.

There are 7 tracks in all with Top 10 rankings on the arcade racing game Fast and Furious Super Cars and Super Cars in game programming that CAN BE SEEN BY THE PUBLIC IT IS IN THE GAME PROGRAMMING. By pressing RED button you can scroll through all the 7 TOP 10 record list.

The first 5 tracks can be seen & verified by Twin Galaxies members and voted with no problem.

1. Fastest Race time Can be seen in the final results.

2. Most Airtime can be seen in the final results.

3. Most Tricks can be in the final results.

4. Most Drift Time can be seen in the final results.

5. Biggest Drift Chain result can be seen while racing on the track at the end of the drift chain in bold. colored numbers

6. Biggest Drift a little bit harder because if the top 10 leaderboard is full and if a player has no access delete the top 10 leader board, then the player must do it on his first attempt in 1 direction or subtracting from current drift time accumulated already from another attempt.

Example: 6.42 at the start of the drfit in one direction till the end . The player SUBTRACTS THE START DRIFT TIME FROM THE END OF THE DRIFT TIME ACCUMULATED.

The drift time goes up 31.85. 31.85 minus 6.42 = 25.43

7. Biggest Jump to solve this problem just take the result of the attempt,

I've been having an issue with scrolling. As you scroll down a page and it auto loads the next page it scrolls me all the way back to the top of the first page or the page that I started at and then I have to scroll all the way down again and again. This is happening in submissions and disputes, not sure about anything else right now.

I'd like to make sure those things are fixed/addressed or that at least you are referencing things that we already know about and have on our internal list to be looked at.

P.S. None of the filter options are a replacement for subscriptions to threads. I have no idea which threads have been commented upon since I last looked at them and so reviewing my past votes based on new commentary is very difficult.

Subscription feature is not fixed.

It's still not possible to scroll submission threads for keyboard-centric use of the site. Mouse interaction is a requirement to scroll such pages.

Subscriptions don't get marked as read when visiting the thread, so the functionality is no longer whole. Subscriptions get mark as "New Posts" when I'm the last person to have posted: this is not how a subscription notification used to work.

can you please elaborate this ?

When a thread is subscribed to, the user control panel will notify of a new post on a subscribed thread:

When a thread is visited, the thread no longer contains new information and should be removed from the notification pool. This is no longer working. The list contains 460+ threads (and growing) so there is no indication of what is "new since last visited" which was the old functionality.

When posting on a thread, as the posting party I am the most recent activity on a thread, there is no need for a notification as the thread is up to date. For example, my most recent post on a subscribed thread is https://www.twingalaxies.com/showthread.php/257907-M-A-M-E-Dungeon-Magic-Ver-2-1O-1994-02-18-Points-2-Player-Team-120-930 - where I'm the most recent poster. The old functionality would not notify me of my own activities on subscribed threads.
