I need your expert help Jace Hall on this technical problem here on your Twin Galaxies site.

I tried 50 plus times to add tracks to no avail. I outlined every step with capture pictures so you can see what happen to me. Being the founder of the arcade racing game Fast and Furious Super Cars I should be able to add derivative tracks for free and with no problems. Problems did arise.

First I select TG records then select create a leaderboard
This what I first see

2nd I see this
a. In the box I put in a check mark for I am a track founder and I would like to add derivative tracks under my established tracks at no submission point cost.

b. I put in Florida for Game name
c. next I select Arcade for Platform
d. then I select Elapsed Time for Score Type
e. then I select Lowest is best for Ranking Method
f. Then I put in To finish with the fastest race time in the description box

g. So far so good,here is were the problem begins

CREATED TRACK I have not selected 1 of the 7 options here below yet.
-- Select your Track--
Gourmet Race - Race Highscore
Fastest completion - YS I
Points
NTSC - Street Performance - Solo - bombastic - Monket Beat - Mix - Highscore
Fastest Race
NTSC - Time Trial Cid's Test Rack ( Fastest Lap )
NTSC - Dics Level Points


Then I select Fastest Race for Created Track and this what I see Winter X Games SnoCross not me being the creator/ founder of the arcade racing game Fast and Furious Super Cars were I can add derivative tracks

    First of all.... Stop addressing Jace. I've told you countless times you need to be talking to me.

    Second of all what is "no no avail "

    Third of all, I TOLD YOU that I was looking into the issue with derivatives. Admin Staff has not gotten back to me.


    PLEASE. BE. PATIENT.

    When I try to add a track, and click "I am a track founder" the ONLY thing I can do next is select from the "created track" drop down.

    How and why are you typing in "Florida"?!

    Anyways, when I select an existing track name, all the other fields populate based on that created track I selected. From there you can change the title of the track, but not the rules or anything else. Without actually pressing submit, everything looks to me like it is working correctly.

    Perhaps if it is populating with Winter X, then you are selecting the wrong track in the first place. Which is completely understandable since you pretty much have to do trial and error to find the right track for the game you are looking for. My list is a lot of this:


    @SincerelyFranny maybe it would be helpful to everybody if @admin staff could revise this section to have the user pick platform and game first to help narrow down the list of track names you have to guess from? Or have that platform/game name display in the list of track names?

    Florida is a racetrack in Fast and Furious.

    And I will add that suggestion to our list. This is something I feel would be extremely helpful as well.

    Juan, Heina is a slang term for girlfriend in a number of countries.

    Are you calling members of TG the "girlfriends of Jackals"? If so, that would be a righteous burn!

    Unfortunately, I suspect you were just calling us jackals and hyenas, which is a lot less creative :/

    STOP CREATING THIS TRACK. I WILL DELETE IT EVERY TIME. You are NOT listening or reading what I am trying to tell you to help you.


    STOP! STOP! STOP! STOP! STOP! STOP! STOP! STOP! STOP! STOP! STOP!

    Juan, this is as stupid proof as I can make it.

    Enter this exactly.

    Game Name: Fast and Furious Super Cars

    Score Type: Elapsed Time

    Ranking Method: Lowest is best

    Description: Fastest Race - Florida


    Rules: [This is where you put your convoluted rules]


    FOR A DERIVATIVES YOU WILL BE ABLE TO CHANGE THE DESCRIPTION FOR EACH TRACK.

    A derivative will always keep the same rule set of the parent track, but you can adjust the description to whatever course you are creating it for.

    If I had to guess I would say repeatedly ignoring advice that both staff and members have gave you. Then being confrontational and insulting when people try to help you. I would probably start there.

    juan this is not a bug. you dont have any fastest time fast and furious to make derivates for. your speed run is only snow game, so of course when you select your snowgame speed run track, it fills in the name of what you selected. your fast and furious track is points.

    that said i do think it sucks the drop down for tracks doesnt show the game it goes to, leads to alot of confusion and makes it hard to find. if you have mulitlple "points" track you wont know which points track goes to which game. the drop down should include game name

    I have tried 51 times it will not do it when I check box for

    This is what it looks like just before I check the box

    I am a track founder and I would like to add derivative tracks under my established tracks at no submission point cost.

    I did not lie to you see , for yourself.

    This after I checked the box.

    Created Track their are only 7 options. here they are below.

    I told you the truth, on the problems, I was having, when I tried to add the 27 race tracks.

    I selected Fastest Race in the Created Track Menu this what I see here below is the capture picture, after I selected Fastest Race

    Game Name changed to Winter X Games Snocross

    This is all I can do. The end

    What this means, if I am not the founder , then either you Mrs Franny or Daniel Ocampo is now. There have been changes and the last change was made by you and Daniel Ocampo when you Mrs Franny & Daniel Ocampo were creating the 3 tracks for original FAST AND FURIOUS SUPER CARS track. Something happened then. I am sure of it, I may be wrong.
    Here is the link

    https://www.twingalaxies.com/game/fast-and-furious-super-cars/arcade/page/9/

    it is in Twin Galaxies scoreboard database

    1. Mojave

    2. New England

    3. Central Park

    Here is the capture picture here below.

    But this does not explain the 7 options in the created tracks menu really strange.

    Question has any Twin Galaxies member encounter this before or similar to this error problem.

    A second track would solve the problem, it would be for the 27 Racing Times only.

    The original Fast and Furious Super Cars 27 tracks would be for the 6 challenges their are already WR's for them in the Twin Galaxies Scoreboard Database Archives. The 6 challenges here below.

    1. Most Air Time

    2. Most Tricks

    3. Most Drift Time

    4. Biggest Drift Chain

    5. Biggest Jump

    6. Biggest drit in one direction

    The 2nd Fast and Furious Super Cars / Super Cars track would be for only fastest race times only for 27 tracks. It would solve the problem.

    Just delete the 54 race time tracks 27 for Automatic race times and 27 for Manual race times, that takes out 54 tracks.

    The original Fast and Furious Super Cars track Rules required players to record game settings from the game menu

    Start set to 90 seconds and Check point set to 30 seconds bonus time

    The Difficulty set to 4,5

    The 2nd Version would allow players not to worry about showing Game Settings like Difficuly, Start and Check Point bonus times just play. The only requirement

    rule-> 6. Player must show enough of the arcade game cabinet to confirm that the correct peripherals like a steering wheel, pedal and gear stick are being used. Game settings is not required to be seen.

    Problem solved, Now for the adding tracks that is a mystery. In the past I have added over a couple hundred tracks with no problem , why now. It is clearly a Twin Galaxies site problem or bug, I do not know.

    All this so someone can pad their track creation numbers and not submit. Time well spent.

    That's only 688 attempts. Assuming no additional points are gained during the time...

    3 attempts actually. but still thats 75 sub points. funny thing is truly paying the 25 could give him what he wants. derivates dont let him change rules like he wants, and derivates dont increase your position on track creation board

    look at this malarkey
