View Full Version : Very Weird Bug in Night Rider

12-01-2012, 07:38 AM
So I encountered this playing online, and I have no idea how it happened. I was wondering if anyone has experienced something like this with either Night Rider or another track that takes a different route on the last lap (a la Firebug Circuit).

You know the part where you enter Huge Monster's mouth on the last lap but the other laps before it, you swing right through it? Well, I managed to meet them as they were running into her mouth, but I somehow was put on the wrong course. I immediately went from 8th to 1st because of this accident, and I felt bad afterwards. Even still I had no idea how I managed to find myself on the Lap 1 track rather than the Lap 3 track.

It's a big possibility that I was hit in the perfect spot that made the game respawn me incorrectly because I did notice that I was in 8th and that everyone else was long gone. The moment I realized I was going the wrong way was when I was shooting through her mouth and t-boning everyone with a boxing glove in the meantime.

It was so weird. Have you guys encountered this? I sure hope it isn't something that can be exploited and was just a freak accident... :frightened:

Happened to me when I used fast forward on lap 3, I ended up taking the lap 1 and 2 route.

Yer this is annoying. I would rather win a race instead of some glitch helping me win it. I just hope it's fixed in the next update.

To fix this, there should be an option on split paths or breadcrumbs to say which paths for which laps: the Lap Path Tweaker. If one is applied, that path is the path CPU's (and therefore boxing gloves and fast-forwards) take on a specified lap. If a specific lap is not in a Lap Path Tweaker near a path that is, the other path will default and the path on which the LPT is applied will close.
