NFS: Hot Pursuit 2010 (Time Trial and Preview events)

Postby Ghegs » Sun Aug 19, 2012 8:41 pm

Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit has many events, but about a dozen of them are perfect for time attacking. These are the events where there are no other racers, no cops, just you and the road. And the civilian cars. Let's not hit those.

Updated the thread to cover all of the Time Trial and Preview events from the game, which are the ones best suited for time attacking in my opinion.

Ultimate Road Car
Moniker - 3:08.18 McLaren F1 360

Managed to whittle this down by about 15 secs. Big difference was switching over entirely to handbreak drifting.

Nice, just a little more and you've got the Gold medal.

I'm going to bump this thread with a time for Slide Show I did a couple of months ago:

Slide Show
Osaka & 2:39.11 & Dodge Viper SRT-10 ACR & PC

EDIT (pre-unspoil): Looking at the times here I'm seeing I have roughly 5 to 10 seconds on most tracks. I'm assuming you haven't tried non-brake drifting or shallow drifts. I know the game says stuff on the loading screen, but those tips assume you're within the vehicle's speed limit and that your vehicle has a tight turn radius - something that won't happen on a Maseratti or the ACR Viper.

EDIT (unspoil): Actually was 2:39, also just made that time I posted (was 2:39.58). Had a traffic collision in the very final stretch so 2:38 should be doable for me.

Hey, very nice. Updated the thread, and replaced all the tables with the nicer looking ones.

The only course I played with any sort of seriousness was The Ultimate Road Car. The rest of my times are pretty much just placeholders, in hopes that other people would take them down. They're very likely the first times I got on the events that still managed to pass it.

I'm gonna have to reinstall the PC version and see if I my saves are still there, and check what course Slide Show was...

A new time and a couple "old" times

Bull Run
Osaka & 3:05.33 & Lamorghini Murcielago LP670-4 SV & PC

Ultimate Road Car
Osaka & 2:48.73 & McLaren F1 & PC

V12 for Victory
Osaka & 1:22.05 & Aston Martin V12 Vantage & PC

Ultimate Road Car & V12 for Victory are the old ones. Tried Ultimate Road Car again today and got a couple of 2:52s but I can't get a good downhill to save my life now. V12 for Victory I just had some godly traffic RNG on the 1:22 run and just kept boosting almost all the way thru, 1:23 being my average time (just did 1:23.31).

The semi-random traffic RNG is my biggest annoyance. If there was a way to remove the traffic completely I'd TA the courses with much more gusto, now I just feel like I'm at the RNG's mercy.

Yeah, traffic RNG can be a really harsh mistress, blocking lines you have commited to and at times all the possible lines period.

Woo. Still a long way from your time, but at least I improved upon my previous best by a whole lot. Pretty cool course, too.

I hadn't updated this time in a while, lol

Extreme Truth
Osaka & 2:45.11 & Porsche 911 GT3 RS & PC

I can probably do better, I gotta get a feel for the game again. Maybe some time in the future I'll provide video since now I can, just gotta figure out shadowplay again.

I will record / stream (If I figure out how to do the latter) sub 2-minute attempts at Unlimited Driving Pleasure next week, will post it here when I do.

(Right now sitting at 2:03.38 because I forget the last shortcut is to the left so I bump into the wall ( 'w')p )

Damn, I don't have my Hot Pursuit save files anymore on this new computer.

I guess that's as good a reason as any to play through the game again so I can try 'n challenge your times.
