Ah. It'll be virgin's traffic shaping as I'd downloaded more than 1gb in an hour during the evening. Fuxake. Unhappy.

70-odd % now. Still saying half hour to go. Is it really so much to ask to get a wee online game? Gonna have to actually bite the bullet & program the auto uodate thing although I really don't like stuff going online through the night unless it is attended. :(

Thanks all for a fun night of action. I think I managed to hit everything in sight, but never mind.

Nice to meet up with @MaccyC and @Alien_Chick for the first time. :waving:

Looking forward to next month already

Yes, great fun as always. :)

@jonnywombat - one thing I couldn't fathom was how you managed to come top nearly every time with a huge number of points, even when you only won one event out of the 5 and others won several. So, what's the trick to getting such high sp?

I think it is because I dont play online much, so I kept getting lots of bonuses, drive x miles in car y, get x amount of takedowns in a row, get x amount of 5 takedowns in a row; stuff like that, and actually winning don't bring as many points as achieving bonuses. For instance one bonus netted me 10000 points, (don't ask me which, as I can't remember now) which was half my total for the entire speedlist.

My guess is next time we play it will not be like that coz I have probably got all the easy achievement bonuses last night.

Absolutely livid at missing this - sorry guys. Eventually had everything downloaded & installed at 11pm but the game froze at the loader.
Ended up deleting all the data, actually playing some Dragon's Dogma then Ni no Kuni then restarting the process with final success at 3am.

All set for the next racing session & have the auto-update thing enabled. Looks like it patched Super Stardust HD last night...

Sounds about right. The first time I played with the Seniors, whilst not coming first I always seemed to amass a stack of points...
