Thread: Wreckin' Racing - BSV points glitch

Started by: TylgarTylgar

Well... I tried tens of times to make the BSV glitch to happen, and I can tell that...... well I absolutely don't understand how it works in the end... what I thought might trigger the glitch isn't needed to make it happen. Tried many things like crossing the finishing line then crossing it again in the wrong way after hitting cars, tried hitting one or multiple cars, tried hitting a few cars at once, etc. Sometimes it triggers the glitch, sometimes it doesn't...
But this glitch makes me think about one thing that frustrates me sometimes : when I'm absolutely sure I'm hitting and making spin an opponent, and I get no point at all, surely because another opponent just touched the same guy a little and so he may be considered the one who made the victim spin... What I mean is ... when a few cars hit themselves at the same time, a bug in points attribution may occur... I think ?
In the end, what I think is that you got to hit multiple cars at once or hit a car while others hit it to trigger the glitch...... then, it's all up to RNG.
Maybe someone will find out how to trigger it one day...

I don't have my ps2 at home so I won't be able to try the chalk canyon glitch for now...
For the BSV glitch, I believe it isn't just the 2 or 3 cars I hit that give me the points... As I said in another topic, I already got more than 500 points once.
I will try to deepen my search about this glitch. I just took a look at some of my runs and it would appear that the glitch happened just one time in division 3. So it might happen on BSV in any division... That may become interesting.

Thread: pSX 1.13

To be honest, I'm a total noob at emulation. I wanted to speedrun DD2 when I saw it on SRC, then I tried it on epsxe but I ended up having the exact same issue you encounter with pSX. Then I tried playing DD2 with the pSX emulator and it worked well. That's all I wanted to begin with. I don't even know if cue/bin files are better than img files ... So, I'm sorry I don't think I could help you even though I play it on pSX emulator.
For your information, I can tell you I usually use romstation to play some old 8-bit/16-bit games. For the ps1, the romstation launcher has epsxe and pSX installed, both with the SCPH1001 bios. Maybe the pSX emulator installed with romstation is already well configured, so if you give it a try...

So I just did a new PB with the Rookie car in 19:13. But I took advantage of the glitch on Black Sail Valley which gives lots of points at the beginning of the race. In this run, I got 160 points, but it can be a lot more.
So far, I can tell this glitch only happened to me on BSV in division 2, never in divisions 3 or 1. And I have a feeling that I begin to understand how it works, but not why it happens on BSV in division 2 specifically and not in other races.
I submitted the run, but it would be nice to clarify whether we can use this glitch in wreckin' racing runs or not.
Anyway, if this is tolerated, I will try to verify how to get points and tell you if anyone's interested.

I tried a run with the rookie car and finished in 18:54...... if only the Skum didn't win the division 1 with 1165 points ! Nice car for wreckin' racing. I felt it won't go crazy spinning every time it gets hit by an opponent. So it might save time compared to the pro car.

I use pSX emulator v1.13.
I might try changing cars to see the difference. I never really use others than pro.

Hello guys, thanks for the congratulations 🙂
In fact my SoB on the wreckin' racing speedrun is 18:05 actually, so I might try sub 19 soon.
I used to play with the pro car when I was young back on ps1, I just didn't want to change. And as it was said months ago, the manual says points are doubled for hitting and spinning the opponent in 1st place, and I didn't remember that fact until I saw the post here. So I will try to abuse that system on next run.

Edit : I just saw Slowest_runner talking about a glitch in black sail valley that nets lots of points. I got that a few times and I thought it was just abusing a glitch and stopped my runs when this happened. So if this happens again, do I keep going or should I stop ? I even got 500+ points once.
