Is there a point where you are so high that they stop rendering?


Is that why they're developing SARPBC 2 so slowly? :lol:

speaking of older versions, i was over a friends house yesterday and showed him sarpbc. downloaded the demo and it was an old(pre-patch) version of the game. the game selection screen was the old style sarp "avatar" showing supersonic etc spelled out. when you download the demo you can only play a select few mini games and unranked. but the problem is you cant connect to play online unranked because it is the older version of the game leaving you stuck with only playing mini games. i dont think the EU version was like this, as right before i bought it i played online and i had no problem connecting to other people. is this supposed to be like that? i figured the mini games would be like that, but at least in the EU version you had a time limit you could play online with the most up to date version of the game. i didnt take notice whether you could play bots or not

i just feel like if i were to be a new person wanting to check this game out, and i download the demo only being able to do mini games or try match making with a broken unranked system(since no one currently runs this version but other people with the demo) it would definitely make me leave the demo, delete and never come back. not everyone has the priviledge to see the pure awesome-ness this game is during the full version like i or many others did

i take it were not getting the supersonic sport emblem, whatever you would call it... :cry:

The US demo is completely different than the US game and the EU game/demo. After the US demo came out, we found out that we could do the demo/game together, which made a lot more sense to us. So in the few months between US and EU, we improved the demo and put out the first patch. Because it's completely separate from the game, the US demo has never been updated.

So yeah, it's "supposed" to be like that, but it's not nearly as good as it was in EU. :|

Yea the EU demo is 10000x better than the US demo. I think it also gets patches? Probably a large contributing factor to why there are much more EU players than US.

Absolutely love this game and cant wait for the sequal. My team is the BOGLINS and we played against you guys a few times when you played and chatted with the players around 3 years ago on PSN. Great fun game and plenty of potential! Is the publisher issue also a funding issue? and is there any way to *cough* invest?

Sadly, *cough* investing would do more harm than good in terms of legality and other things. There is a thread about this if anyone wants to find it...

Why can't you make SARPBC 2 like you did on SARPBC 1?

I mean what have you done to make SARPBC 1?

Just to let you guys know, development on SARPBC 2 has taken some major strides so far this year. We're working out all the details now. We have taken a lot of your feedback in to account, and are all super excited about it so far. :cheesygrin:

The news that SARPBC 2 is being created hasn't really sunk in for me yet. It still feels like a rumour. :P

Oh, and will we be the first to be beta testers? ;) And alpha testers. ;) And pre-alpha testers. ;)

Not if its only on PS3. Testing on PC would be easy though.

If it were PC, you would need a computer that could run ARC. Though ARC wasn't very optimized.

As long as there's a very in depth tutorial I'm sure my new computer can handle it :cheesygrin:
