Funny. This was a draft made way back in May, when I was playing a lot of Trails Fusion. Not as good as the previous ones (or more, not that inovation as the previous), but still a good game. Was a ton of fun to play through. And I would probably start playing it again when I move! “Anywho”, I took screenshots with my phone of some of the glitches I experienced. Nothing game breaking, just funny.
Trials Evolution came out last week, and I’ve had a blast playing through it. The gameplay is still the same, hard and addictive. RedLynx (the developers) have finally added multiplayer and it works like a charm! Sadly if your are an experiment player like my there aren’t that many difficult tracks. I struggled only with three extreme tracks. Inferno 3 which was the hardest track in Trials 2SE (which my record is 45:32:91 and 288 faults, you can check out my old profile here) I manage to complete in the first try! That can’t be right, I know I’m not that good. So if your looking for a new XBLA game, this is it!
If you played Trials HD on XBLA you definitely saw some of the clues to this riddle, but if you where like me you didn’t didn’t think much about it. Apparently there where something more to it.

Sometime I wish I could just pause my life. Just to catch up with it. Right now (as I’m been complaining about for the last ten post or something) I feel like I don’t have time to do all the things I want to do. Guess I just have to get used to if for a little while, since school starting on Monday, and I signed up for yet another class. Going to be interesting to see how it’s going to go, since all three classes are a-lot-of-work classes.
Back to my normal life, I had a vinyl to workshop with my brother on Thursday, that was super fun. And you can see some photos of what I started on (didn’t finish any piece), will also post more pictures when I get them from my brother. I’ve also played a lot of Trials HD now, and it is super awesome! I love it so much! Also started to create two levels. Will try to see if I can film them when I get done with them. If it works out well, I’ll do the same with my N+ levels. I also was on an Andrew Bird concert yesternight (guess that’s not a word) with my girlfriend. He started playing half past twelve, so was a bit late, but still very nice. He was fun to watch live, even though I thought he looked different. Guess that’s what I have to tell you about my latest days. Tomorrow I’m going to “Øya Festivalen” and listen to Crystal Castles and Röyksopp and maybe some other bands. I’ll let you all know how it goes!

This week Jorma released 2 more unofficial levels which you have to add to the game by yourself. Before we have had Inferno 2 relased, and now we got Deanathon and Trials By Fires! They are both very fun tracks and should be easily completed if you’ve played Trials before. The inferno 2 track is an extremely hard track and is not one many people can master. Not me! So enjoy!
You can play it the following way:
– Open My Documents
– Open Trials 2 folder
– Create a folder named “Levels” here (there should be a “Replays” directory already here)
– Extract the inferno2.lvl and inferno2.xml files to the folder
– Start Trials 2 SE, and the track should be visible on downloadable tracks folder. Be sure you have v1.08 of the game.
Levels.zip for you!
This is how the new in-game friend score comparison feature works! This is taken straight from the forum.
This is the Delivery skill game. You have to haul the cart filled with bombs as far as you can in one minute time limit. If the bombs are shaken too much or fall out of the cart, they will explode. The score is simply the distance how far you can reach before the bombs explode or the time ends. While riding the track you can see the gamertags (player names) of the top 10 players in your friend list showing the positions where they have reached.
This is one of the new hard racing tracks, called King of the Hill. You can see the friend comparison meter in the top of the screen. It shows in real time how much ahead/behind you are compared to the friend that is closest to you currently (and the player ranking – a feature not yet shown in this old screenshot). If you ride much faster or slower compared to the friend shown, the comparison meter will automatically swap to another friend that is closest to you. So you have always someone to race against. Currently I am racing against “jorsai2” (one of Jorma’s test profiles).
Just some quick quotes from the forum.
– Left analog stick: Analog backward/forward leaning
– Directional pad: Digital leaning (full power)
Gas & Brake:
– Right analog trigger: Analog gas
– Left analog trigger: Analog brake
– A: Digital gas (full power)
– X: Digital brake (full power)
No separate front/back brakes, as we didn’t want to make the control scheme any more complex. Different bikes have different brake balance and braking power.
Y = bail out
B = quick restart to last checkpoint
BACK = quick restart track (faster “ready, go!” version)
START = open in-game pause menu
Sounds like an good controller. I’m very curious about the full power “feature”, as it could be real fun to play some level where you only use either full break or full power! Also I’m missing a quick way to change the camera angel, but maybe they’ll use the right and left buttons/bumper for that.
There will be 12 skill levels! Supah fun!
There are 12 different Skill Games in Trials HD. Each with their own leaderboards (with replays) and in-game friend comparision features.
