2024 Spring HSC - Round 6 - Super Monaco GP


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Let's burn rubber! I'm going to be unavailable for a few days, but I wanted to get the round started. I've never played the SMS version of Super Monaco GP, and only the Genny version briefly (maybe rented once or something). So I'm not exactly sure how to set up the rules and scoring. Start 1 player and Grand Prix mode. This will get us all to the same track (Brazil). Play a "Test Run."  That's a single lap of the Brazilian track. You can use any "Machine Set" you want. Take a picture of your single lap time, and the best lap wins!

Bonus game is the classic Outrun.

 

This round runs May 13 - May 26.

 

Totals:

  1. @wongojack 1:52:79 (+1)
  2. @BydoEmpire 1:58:02 (+1)

OK, here's what I would suggest.  Start 1 player and Grand Prix mode.  This will get us all to the same track (Brazil).  Play a "Test Run."  That's a single lap of the Brazilian track.  You can use any "Macine Set" you want.  Take a picture of your single lap time, and the best lap wins.  My best time after my first few attempts is 1:52:79 <- I guess they have hundredths of seconds in this game?

Here's my Outrun pic - no engine noise is a bummer in this version

That's a good idea - I just tried Grand Prix and wow, I don't have the time to go through all 16 races (I ended up with 2 points after two tracks).

Yeah, I was going to have a tough time doing the whole Grand Prix.  Also, I got my "Hundredths" wrong above.  should be 79, not 73.

 

As a guy who has spent a lot of time analyzing and trying to improve software performance, I am VERY skeptical that this game is actually measuring tenths and hundreths of a second.  I have no idea of course, but I would guess those digits after the seconds are just completely made up.  We'll see if a number of people end up with the same combinations of numbers there.

I think you're right about that hehe. Makes it a bit more fun though.
