Sorry for the unneccasary thread when we've already got one about speedometer. Darm asked me to make a poll because he couldn't change the old thread into one.

Basically, Hibernatus doesnt believe us when we say that most people want a speedometer. Vote to prove him wrong.

I vote against it.
And one vote from me is worth 500 votes from other kuskis.
So you've got to gather many votes to have me add that feature...

Ask Abula to move it to the Polls forum.

I vote yes on one condition: You can turn it off.

speedometer is a strange thing if it was in elma, because how long do you drive ?? and how fast, you can't use the lenght that it is on the screen, it should be compared to how big the bike is and so on...blah

No, I don't see any point in it. Say the bike is 2 meters long. What's the fastest you then can drive when there's no downhill? Like 40km/h? How cool is that? Plus it would be disturbing (yes, I know all about the on/off options you are suggesting).

We can call it p/s (pixels per second). That would be really useful. :)

I dunno why the poll disappeared. I tried to put it back and it appeared with 5 "yes" options and 2 "no." Very weird...

I dont think it's usless. Well, some crazy hoylas would use it to know exacly if they are going right. Let's say that some tricks would be better done with speedometer.

Who cares if it's useless? It would still be nice to look at.

If there was a poll to vote at, i would vote "No" ... speed0meter seems useless as an endless amount of people has said already

No, it is useful on some cases, and that being only the max speed thingy. Would be nice if could reset it during the run for many speed checks.

The replay file tells you the location of the bike every 0.03 seconds, but not the speed or anything. So technically you can approximate the speed based on the locations of the bike every 0.03 seconds, but this is only a guess and not the actual speed from the real run.

Smibu's replay manager (in Elmanager) gives speed approximations from recs.

The speedometer in EOL is based on an already existing speed value that exists in original elma, which is a variable used internally in the code to determine how much to move bike each frame I presume. Recs doesn't work this way, they tell the position of bike with some interval instead, which is why you can't make one the same way. The one in Elmanager works like sunl described I'd guess and thus the values can't be compared to the one in EOL since there's no shared units.
