Your biggest misbeliefs about Elma/EOL

Post by iCS » 21 Jan 2019, 15:57

My top3:

in the old Elma 1.0 - 1.2 era:
- slesk001.rec (MOPOCO15.lev Impsybility hard version) is a hack replay, such hardcore piping is not possible for human

when I found EOL:
- Elma Online is a browser game edition of Elma

First days in EOL:
- orka lev means ugly like an Ork lev

I`'ve always thought (and still think) that "psy", as in "impsy", means "possible". Sadly no one else uses it that way.

Classics like changing direction has no impact on the physics of the bike (e.g. when falling from start straight onto a polygon) stuck with me for more than 10 years.

Also I thought that Orcc would be ugly like an Orc but he isn't.

When i tried to join eol 1st time in 2011 it was impsy cuz there was some complex puzzle required (like 1)register 2)pm request to KD kuski here on lauta 3)profit), so i just rambled around, readed eol rules, features osv and i discovered battle types, namely "one-life".
When i finally connected to eol there was battle in ONExxx.lev by Ramone ongoing and i thought it was onelife battle and drived very slowly and safely.

Also thought nekit was an spambot virus (which is true)

1) When i was 10, I filled lev by maskbig textures to change ground color and thought it was the only method

2) I thought that 55th lev was finished by someone, bcz i had seen video of it (now i think that i saw nitro rec, bcz its totally impsy to finish it without nitro)

3) When i played levs done in ALE, I thought that all these things was done by arms. One of first such levs I saw was consist of 100 equal rectangles (by cook imo:/) and it was a shock for meXD HOW THE HUMAN COULD DO THAT???? although this lev poss to make for 5 mins

At first when I just had joined #across on irc I saw, for the most part, mila writing "damez" at regular times.
For example "damez didn't get 14.20 even in warm up" etc.
I thought it was a person so one day I asked who it was xD everybody laafd.

Thought tl was a bot to make random levels, to fill gaps. I joined eol at a time when TL just had gotten 1 year chat ban:)
Also thought all mopo recs was fake

1) i am anpdad
2) thought that there are two guys, one is technical ultra all records holder (mopo), second one explorer of game abuses (slesk)
3) for months i thought that to add gravity to levels in editor is the prerogative of Balazs and only later i have disovered RMB-on-apple
4) the biggest misbelieve is that i thought that the elma mans are crap :beer:

That Lassi was a friend of Abula.

I remember playing old moposite levels in 2003 and being very impressed by most of the times by Lassi. "Damn, Abula's friend Lassi sure can drive good times" I thought.

I told Abula about this in FEM18, he had a good laugh about it :mrgreen:

I thought that when assigning gravity to apple, the Anim number was to set the strength of the gravity.

Thought Abula was girl's name. Corroborated by Lassi which also sounded like girl's name.

Also bamilian

I thought I would be good just because 'omg i remember this game from it classes at school'
<Pawq> at a gym you have only 3 options: 1. have your eyes closed, 2. stare at yourself, 3. stare at others, all of which are either super boring or disgusting

I thought for many years that Enigma was Engima wich i thought was the spelling of Engine for some weird reason.

I also belived that long before alo-button came that doublepressing both arrows was for no use except for coming in right position in the Freefall-fall.

I checked on moposite sometime in 2007 but found there hadn't been any activity there since 2006. I was very disappointed that Elma community was dead and I was too late to join.
My fake plants died because I did not pretend to water them.

1. i knew wr table in around 2008 and used to check it sometimes, but was convinced wrs are sent by some anonymous weirdfucks that dont know each other and just play internals quietly. forum was nowhere to be found :D had i seen this, maybe i would have been for 11 years in here.

hell of a poopy mayonnaise, SAME! took me a few months to realize, was surprising

3. more of an xmoto misbelief:
when i already got good in elma i thought its gonna be hell of an ez to find pro styles and drive wrs in xmoto. i had the imagination, i had the stylefind. bike is bike, huh? ill learn how to control xmoped in no time based on my elma experience!!! nope, the controls successfully threw me off. took me 1h to realise the wrs aint that ez and orka play this.

4. i used to believe you need an extremely fast reaction time/reflex to be good in elma, especially in pipes. no you dont
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice.

I think elma, and piping is no exception, is about a combination of anticipation with planning, and reaction. A lot of the time we can anticipate bike behaviour and plan keystrokes in advance for it to do what we want, but there's also the element of quick and well-judged response to the unpredictable and random. It's an interesting topic :)
