We’ll get out of the rain and cold for a bit this week and head back to Greece again.

Other than rain and cold winter also brings darkness and while Greece might have a good couple of sun hours more than up north it gets really dark at night. So better make sure you bring plenty of headlight fluid to last the week.

Abies Koiláda is a medium length track with a lot of varied turns and corners spaced out with a few decent straight bits. But it’s still not going to let you go too hard and fast as the road is narrow and in a right appalling state. This week is about playing it safe and making sure you keep your headlights intact across the finish line.

I feel that the 2010 cars still have more to offer and I’d like to try them out on a few different road conditions so we’ll be sticking with them for this week as well.

Dust, darkness and random road boulders here to greet you all welcome to Greece for week 48 of the Chrono Rally League.
Yukkuri shiteitte ne!

Week 49

It seems this night time romp through the mountainsides of Greece was not attractive to many of us, though this does not discount the solid victory of @DontBeSilly, wholehearted congratulations on such an impressive time and finally breaking @Doomy’s winning streak, even if he self-disqualified. @Pylinaer as always putting a solid respectable time on the board while making it look easy no matter what difficulties are piled on top.

It’s quite frankly been raining here for just about 2 months straight, today was the first day I’ve seen the sun so I really don’t fancy driving into another rain storm. So we’re heading back to Finland and some brief pleasant weather.

Kotajärvi is a medium length track with a lot of softer turns across dips and crests though this one also have some nice open fields to get lost in. This track quickly reminded me of an ancient Swedish dad joke. “Vart tog vägen vägen? Vi är ute på en åker och åker”. So don’t do that!

For this week I’m going to allow free pick of cars, drive whichever car you fancy and show us the best you can do in your favourite vehicle.

Week 49 of the Chrono Rally League will be a bit more easy going and relaxed affair in the hopes of seeing a few more willing participants.

Have fun and good luck.

Week 50

Finland again turns out to be a really good time, but all things must end and so does week 49. @NME1 managed to eke out an early lead for himself and presented some good times only to be overtaken in the last minutes by @doomy just barely edging him out and off the top spot. Congratulations to @doomy again and well done to both of you, very good show.

Sweden has long stood as an out of reach challenge that just seems impossible to grasp so this week we’ll have another go at it.

Elgsjön (Not to be confused with Älgsjön) is a bit longer than the last Swedish stage we tried, but it has some wider stretches and also a couple of really decent straights where you can unleash your power. Just make sure you’re able to keep it steady for the turns beyond. As with every other Swedish stage however the main hazard is not so much the lack of grip but the snow banks on the side which will grab you and throw you into a roll if you’re going too fast.

The 2010 cars proved very pleasant and fun to drive, so we’re banning them this week. Feel free to pick anything else you fancy, though I would recommend going for something with 4WD, for example:
Group B - A lot of power and low weights makes for very fast cars, but can you control them well enough to use that advantage?
Group A - Weaker but more clever cars, slower but steadier and with more gears to make the power output more even.
2000 - Still very good cars, almost as comfortable as the 2010s, can the other groups stand up to them?
Every other group is open, so if you do prefer front or rear wheel drive then go right ahead.

The Swedish Rally runs in January, so we’re starting early before all the pros get here. Week 50 of the Chrono Rally is now open.

Show us what you can do!

Week 51

Well done everyone, I think we can confidently say the challenge posed by Swedish snow to have been met. Congratulations to @Doomy for taking the first spot with a decisive lead over the competition.

After indulging me to playing around in the snow for a week I thought I’d reward you all with some tarmac to run on and so we’re heading to Monaco again.

Route de Turini Descente is a short sprint but there’s not a lot of straight bits to it, only a few hairpins but when the road is this narrow even a 4 feels dangerous. This track is going to reward tight control and razor sharp timings. So 4wd is going to be nice to have, I’m sure you’d also like a good bit of power to quickly accelerate out of the corners and take best advantage of the short straights offered. Sounds like a job for Group B 4WD.

We appreciate power. Lets see if you can hold on to the reins of these beasts and wrangle them through tight quarters.

Week 51 of the Chrono Rally League opens to the roar of engines through mountain tunnels.
Have fun everyone and try not to die now.

Week 52

Monaco’s mountain roads might be in impeccable condition but being so narrow they demand high precision driving, @DontBeSilly showed us how to thread the needle and posted his 2nd weekly win, congratulations.

Last week we had to exercise great control and constraint over these beastly machines so this week we will release them onto the fields of Baumholder and give them some space to push their limits.

This week’s another long one, Ruschberg does have a few good long stretches but they vanish quickly with the speed of these cars. There are also a lot of square turns and hairpins, this is a track that will really test your skills at handling your vehicle in every aspect. I believe this stage rewards the best driver among us, not necessarily the one who has the most time to practice the map. As you might have surmised we’re sticking with Group B 4WD for this.

As the year comes to an end I will now announce the opening of the final week of the Chrono Rally league. This event has been a lot of fun to organize and I think I can call the goal I had at the start met with great success. I want to extend a huge thank you to everyone who have participated and helped make this so much fun.

This final week will be open until the end of the year so that anyone who might want to participate can find the time in between family, food and festivities.

Again thank you so much everyone, happy holidays and drive safely out there.

I don’t understand how to “play”. Are we supposed to play an actual videogame for this? Or is this something built into Chrono like a browser Flash game? :confused:


#4

Ok so there was this big thing, whole thread we’ve been running for a week about how Dirt Rally was being given away for free. I realize now that I never mentioned the name of the game in this post however. I suppose I shall remedy that. I still have a key for it that should work, if anyone managed to miss all that and want to join in.


#5

Also a bit of help with the callouts.


#6

Oh, okay, now I get it :smile:

Good luck to everyone who’ll be joining in. I won’t though as I’m strictly a Point and Click, Turn based strategy and City building Sim player :slight_smile:


#7

Here’s my new PB at this track (will update if i do better):

EDITED

Also for people who use a controller like me, try out these settings, it helped me a lot:


#8

You’re talking about “Nailed It!”, right? If so I already got it in career mode :upside_down_face:


#9

#10

First Attempt (Really better than I thought… well, minus the 3 times I drove off the road and needed rescues…)

Are you racing against AI drivers? It was default to with AI racers, of course I came in last.


#11

ooh, i need to get in there :slight_smile: still downloading atm


#12

So this is my first time playing this game and really the first time playing a more simmish racer but after about an hour or two of many rolls, accidents and restarts i got my fairly clean run. Still not good at that triple 1 turn section, I just handbrake it around there.
I also recommend the Cooper for newbies, Front wheel drive felt less slippery on the back end when cornering.


#13

Wait, @PeteMcc, different track?

You did amazingly well though, no matter, since you out-drove all of the other AI drivers… :+1:


#14

Wait oops did I do the wrong one?


#15

Well, I am sure we will come around to doing that track, so your score will stand pretty well no matter what.

Just like there’s no wrong path to your destination, just a more scenic route.


#16

Damn it, I’ll try the proper one now


#17

If anyone needs a key, I have one. Hopefully Humble hasn’t deactivated it yet…:crossed_fingers:t3:


#18

Could I claim then @delenn13 ? I thought I had rally but it turns out I have Dirt 3 instead, and I’d like to join in.


#19

hm, 4:23 on first attempt

does my all-time best of 4:02 count? lol

i guess if i did it before i can do it again, though i’m curious which car i did that with, as this was with the alpine, and i didn’t make any mistakes, tough i guess I was quite careful as well

i’m gonna run this with all 3 cars to see what’s best for me

edit: nevermind, it says it right there, it was the alpine as well


#20

I am STUPID!!! STUPID!!! STUPID. I know better. I didn’t get the key before It expired…I could have sworn I did.

I am so sorry for getting your hopes up :cry:


#21

I would think about playing but I don’t have enough disk space to install this game oops

(I mean eventually I will install it… lol)
