Re: The Quitting Topic !

Not that anyone cares, but I haven't touched elma in a couple of months, and I have no real desire to start back up again. I think 10 years of playing this silly motorcycle game might be enough. Bye!

Re: elma online testing guidelines and bug reports

A weird, obscure bug: if you're typing in the chat while watching recs with "Randomizer", your chat gets cut off when one rec ends and the next one begins. It doesn't happen if you're watching a single rec.

Re: Elma Online site: Plans, Ideas, Changes

There could also be a "participate" button. Before you press it, you're not in the battle, only in the level. Would be cool... everyone could play the level from the beginning and decide at the end whether to press teh button according to his time. Not to say it's a good idea (it isn't), but you co...

It's probably not worth the bother, but I suppose it could be fixed by special casing battle winning recs until they've been uploaded to the server. If a better time is driven in the interim you would have to save it with some sort of temporary name, and only overwrite the winning rec after it's bee...

Re: Elma Online site: Plans, Ideas, Changes

For this battle , Kuper improved his own winning time at almost exactly the same moment the battle ended. His winning time for the battle is 15.65, but the rec is his 15.50 run. Note that it says "00:15,65 (watch online)", and the replay you get is the 15.50 one. It's not a huge deal if the same per...
