Records & Ranking

Post by dede » Mon Dec 01, 2008 3:18 pm

The new ranking (based on fast laps) is ready and running! Tracks will be added monthly (Dark International Competition's tracks).

How to enter the ranking?
It's possible to send own laps by uploading recordings or racing to the - Official Ranking Server (it will be available every now and then).

A race is being recorded if there's a "REC" red message in the top right corner of the screen. It's possible to enable/disable recordings pushing the record button (F4 by default, configure it at 'Settings > Keys'). It's also possible to save recordings automaticall in 'Settings > Recordings' (you can save automatically last 'n' races or save all of them).
Only recordings generated with TurboSliders 2.0.0 will be accepted (minimum beta rc4). Please download the latest TurboSliders version (2.0.0 Official Release) if you are running a beta version, so that there won't be problems at all.

Sending a recording
You can upload your recordings from this page (you need to be logged in to access it). You can upload as many recordings as you want (only best lap video will be saved).
Please don't delete your recordings from your hard disk after submitting them. Our software for video uploading is still being beta tested, so there might be problems (if you don't see your lap time after some days, then report the bug here).
If that page doesn't work and the error is about "associated player profile", you need to associate your player profile to your account. You can do it through this page.
WARNING: It's recommended to use only one nickname, in order to be correctly ranked. Turbo Sliders offers the possibility to set up multiple player profiles. But using always the same one is quite tricky. Using the same nick name doesn't mean it's exactly the same player. To use always the same player (name & ID), back up your 'players.da2' (inside the TurboSliders '/data/' folder). That file contains all profiles. If you use multiple computers, copy that file to other PC's too.
