    Can you not cap the frame rate to 30? It's actually very playable on Switch that way. Especially inferno V.

    It does stuck with the lack of cross platform leaderboards (in regards to friends). Makes it a pointless feature to boast about.

    @andytheadequate Sorry to hear it mate, I've learned a lot by racing your ghosts :-). Hope you'll be back when/if they fix the game.

    I'm glad I could be of some help 😀 You'll find that I started to care less about getting platinum towards the end as I was getting more frustrated with the game, so they might not be as useful for the later tracks...

    What's your username on Uplay? And I doubt they'll fix it, their support for Trials Fusion wasn't great on the PC, and I heard the Gold edition had issues too.

    Ah, I kept seeing it pop up in game that you'd overtaken me on some track or other 😀

    Track Central is now working properly on Switch, although I've had a few hard crashes after completing stages.

    Can't have it all fixed this year, I suppose.

    My times for the hard and extreme tracks aren't amazing (I was getting a bit annoyed by this point), but I had some decent ones for the medium and below, most of them being plats. You must have been doing pretty well.

    I'm now doubly annoyed that the game didn't work properly now I know I had some leaderboard competition...

    If anyone is still around - the next (last?) dlc is out Tuesday, 37 new tracks & free if you have the gold edition.

    It's worth checking out the tracks for the redlynx building competition if you haven't played for a while, there's a specific feed for it on track central - some really good tracks in there.

    @Ironlungs_76 - give us a follow on xbox, would like to see if I can get any closer to your times on HD :p

    Picked this up on switch now as well so if anyone has it let me know your friend code & I'll add you as soon as I figure out what to do.

    Looking forward to it. The last DLC was great. The difficult definitely went up a notch. I assume this will be more of the same.

    I've only seen it on the PSN store to buy, even though it should be free with the season-pass. vOv

    @ComradePete

    Thanks for the heads up. Had no idea new DLC was out for it.
    Got my gold edition on PS4 so will download this later.
  • Deleted user 10 September 2019 20:02:57
    This is currently 14.99 for the gold edition on the Nintendo Switch. I'm surprised at how well it plays tbh, I'm tempted now after trying out the demo.

    Game plays fine on Switch! Do practice with analog controls though. At least for acceleration. It's essential for the expert tracks.
  • Deleted user 11 September 2019 14:36:45
    @DangerousDave_87 I never even noticed the controls until it was pointed out on a video I was watching. Had a little go using the stick and it's alright actually, a little strange but could get used to it. I'm certainly not good enough for the harder tracks though😀

    How's the frame rate, can you still race against your friends ghost on the Switch version?

    If you have friends on the Switch version, you can do. The frame rate is a solid 30fps for the most part, but there are a few dips here and the on the earlier, flashier levels. Nothing that will impact the gameplay or force you to crash.

    Randomly, custom tracks run at much higher frame rates and I don't understand why, as they're usually more detailed. I haven't come across anything that really pushes the Switch to its limits, though.

    So I downloaded the latest DLC last night, got Golds on all tracks and managed to unlock the Extremes before I had to turn it off. New tracks seem pretty good, albeit only saw most of them for 1 or 2 tries each.

    One annoying Hard track with lots of physics obstacles, conveyer bets etc that I wasn't too keen on but other than that they looked ok.

    If I get a chance over the next few days/week I'll try and knock out the Extremes and maybe hunt down a couple of times on my leaderboards.

    Free time is my limiting factor, a common problem with old farts such as me :o)

    Maybe this is old news but there's a demo available on the PSN for those reading this thread that still haven't got this game.

    An actual demo that's not football!

    Great. I've got a fiver in points as well so I'll pick it up!

    Its also part of Ubisoft free trial for Uplay+ on pc, installed it and played the first few tracks so far.
  • Deleted user 11 September 2019 16:26:15
    Thanks for the add ironlungs!

    Agree about the weird Australian hard track, not a fan. Rest of the new tracks are smashing though. Didn't unlock everything last night so not seen the extremes & doubt I'll be a le to pass the ninjas.

    Switch version is brilliant, some of the harder tracks can be a bit trickier, I've found it OK just using the digital buttons - a few rapid blips on the throttle can get through most areas where you could feather it with the analogue on the xbox.

    @CompetitiveDad I think we're friends in Switch already, so you'll have at least one ghost to compare to. I've got a few more friends on my list from the old friends coffee thread, so hopefully you have them as well. Is certainly a bet game when you have times to chase down and beat.

    So 12 months after my rage quit, I bought the Route 66 DLC.

    Nearly threw my controller out of the window after encountering endless performance issues again, but realised the game was causing my laptop to overheat so tried again with it raised so the fans could work a bit better. Much more enjoyable once I'd figured that sorted the frame rate drops, and managed to complete all the tracks.

    I forgot how tough the extreme tracks can be in this game though. Took me a while to even get a bronze on the 2 DLC ones, but after those I went back to Inferno V and managed to complete it, although I was miles off a bronze. Bit annoying that you don't just get the medal for completing a track any more, especially now the extremes, but not finishing it was nagging away at me and was a great source of shame, especially after how well I did on the HD and Evo ones. I even did alright on some of the Fusion extremes, but not sure I have the patience any more.

    Not sure I'm going to bother with the second DLC though. Without the leaderboard competition I'm struggling to motivate myself to improve my times any further. Hopefully I'll be back on the Xbox in time for the next one.
