a volt is simply the left or right direction keys that make ur bike trun to a certain way. an alovolt is dont by pressting the left and right keys at the same time, in 1.11 i think it is u can set the alovolt key to anything u like using elma conf.

Not exactly. Pressing both the <- and -> keys at the same time causes a volt called a supervolt. An alovolt is when a supervolt occurs without having to do one normal volt first.

i doubt that he understood the alovolt part, revolt. i only understood it cause i know what u wanan say... an alovolt is sligtlhy harder (faster) rotation. it is made by pressing left and right at the same time. but it's reallly hard to make it from the first rotation. alovolt can be made easy if u have Hibernatus' elma patch.

There's three kind of volts:
Normal volt: Simply press right or left to rotate...quite simple :wink:

Alovolt: As they say above. Making a fast volt without the normal volt first. This can be done without any patch but is harder then so I recommend u use that patch Doddddy told about.

Brutalvolt: Hmm to do this u need to have some backweight and some speed. When u have quite much backweight u brake and when the frontwheel touches the ground u give a little extra push or something like that...Hard to explain but check moporec on Uphill Battle

that was another, older version.
best patch at the moment is 1.2hb beta. keep in mind, the so called "final" still has the editor bug.

1.2 beta doesn't have any bugs i recall and it has many extra features compared to 1.11hb so i suggest using that one.

well supervolt and alovolt is actually just the same volt, they just call the other one alovolt because its made without normal volt first.
so briefly, alovolt is supervolt with the difference that its made without doing any volt before it, that's why they call it alovolt (alone volt).

originally you could only do alovolt if you could press left and right volt buttons exactly the same time, but since the success rate depended greatly on your keyboard model, the patch to have an own button for alovolt was created.

confusing eh?

Hey, nobody gives a f*** about the names, he just wanted to know that this volt is done by pressing both left and right arrows at the same time.

Its called rotation in the game anyway!
