Download:
http://www.mx-bikes.com/?page=downloads
( mirrors would be extremely helpful and welcome )

To update:
1) delete everything in the MX Bikes installation folder and in "My Documents"/PiBoSo/MX Bikes/ except for license.ini

Release notes
- a clean installation is strongly recommended
- replays and setups are not compatible with the previous versions
- the replay buffer size setting has been changed from bytes to megabytes: http://forum.mx-bikes.com/index.php?topic=198

This beta includes the biggest change in physics data format ever, so no modded bike made for previous versions will work.
Hopefully modders will have the patience to convert all the bikes and learn how to create the new rear suspension geometry:

Usually I don't want neither, but I'll make an exception this time: E-P-I-C !

10min on practice track, with stab help at 0 and at 100. Utterly enjoyable even with zero practice (or close to). A real pleasure.

I'm pondering taking a day off from work tomorrow.

Have you tried re starting your PC?

I had an issue with the graphics in the setting smenu the first time i ran after installing. My screen went crazy, couldnt read anything. I rebooted machine, been great since then.

All the graphics settings can be manually changed in the "My Documents"/PiBoSo/MX Bikes/profiles/"your profile"/profile.ini file, under the "gfx" section.
However, if there are issues changing resolution, it's probably better to first try to update the graphics drivers to the latest official version.

Ive just spent half hour on the supermoto, and i wasnt really looking forward to that, but for me that thing has blown my mind. Its bloody hard to keep the bike up when you get the back end out, but I se moments of brilliance from time to time, I can only imagine what some of the best guys here can do with that thing after a few weeks of practice.

I can se people doing the whole track with the back end out the whole way :)

I hope this encourages some more MX sim guys over, I think the back end was a big turn off for them wasnt it?

I've spent about an hour playing now after I got one of my custom bikes going in it (took me a bit to wrap my head around the linkage settings) ... You've done a great job! Thanks!

Post by: Phathry25 on March 01, 2016, 06:19:36 am
Huge improvement over B3, much more playable.  The added features are great, love that the track state is saved and has to be manually reset.  And I was wrong, speedway is totally possible.  ;)

Still feels and looks like the rear wheel is tracking too far inside the front wheel when turning.  Needs to be better at having rear wheel tracking outside of front wheel especially when exiting the corners.  This is where speed is made in real life, being able to keep the rear wheel sliding ever so slightly.  Admittedly my observations are mainly on the supermoto, there's too many other factors at work on a MX track to really see what is happening.  I would like to see a softer acting rear wheel.  Right now it really jumps out and back in quickly when sliding, in my experience the feel of this is much softer and not so violent.

Now I just need to figure out a flat track tire.  :)

As a long standing member of the GP Bikes community the major draw to MX Bikes was the prospect of a supermoto, the day that the preview video came out I bought a copy of MXB and waited patiently for the release that included it. I gotta say it is the most fun I've had in quite some time! Waaaay better than the two unofficial releases on the GPB forum. Piboso hit the nail on the head with the 450 Supermoto!  ;D


Tracks to spend time on with the supermoto to get a real feel for the versatility and fun of it:

RX track included in game, but if you don't like the dirt, or the single track, the following links are for some of the tracks I tested the GP Bikes KX450 SM on, others released after that were well suited for low displacement bikes. The 450 Supermoto in Beta4 is fantastic on them all, I love it, I've literally spent the past 3 and a half hours riding as hard as possible, dragging out long standup wheelies, backing it in like there is no issue at all doing so, and having an all out great time. Hope you all enjoy these tracks as much as I do.

Southern (All piboso titles) a few other tracks as well, all great quality! http://forum.piboso.com/index.php?topic=3001.0

Landsard (KRP) http://forum.kartracing-pro.com/index.php?topic=5219.msg40341#msg40341

A7000 (All Piboso titles) "Public Road", tons and tons of fun, point to point, twisty, some awesome high speed sweepers. http://forum.piboso.com/index.php?topic=1003.0

Mosport (KRP) https://mega.co.nz/#!Mtd2yJiZ!YPY7xS7hP1Qjuy1Vdt5VPBGjEThJbf_-TkbHNRTxH34

Lezennes (GPB) Rather tight track that lent itself well when I was helping private test the KX450-SM that was released on GPB forum. http://forum.piboso.com/index.php?topic=182.0

Funring 2013 (WRS/GPB) has a massive jump, a small jump, a bumpy corner, a smooth corner, a carousel corner, a fairly decent length strait section, and did I mention it has a big ramp to ramp jump? Seriously, if you only download one track to add to MXB that isn't motocross, it should be THIS one. http://gp-bikes-italia.forumfree.it/?t=66083246





To install, unzip your tracks.pkz so you have a regular "tracks" folder in the directory with it, and unzip your downloaded tracks into your newly created "tracks" folder in MX Bikes. I'm sure there is more detailed install directions around the forum, but that is the basic of, "Where do I put these?".





Some shots from today. Grimm, resident hooligan and stunt rider extraordinaire from the GP Bikes forum. Some of these "tricks" I crashed, but with practice could reproduce again and again. Piboso titles are some of the best out there. Niche market stuff like MX Simulator and Live For Speed are amazing in their own right, but Piboso is truly a master of the craft of good, evolving simulators.

Post by: 𝖙𝖋𝖈 on March 01, 2016, 09:01:46 am
Thanks grimm!

It really is great to see the positive feedback all round so far. Last night I rode with stability on 100% but traction help off and the back end was hanging out in a controllable way around and out of most corners. The only downside was not being able to scrub properly with stability on 100 so that's the first thing I'll be working on lowering!

Can't wait to get back on it later!

I'm starting to have a lot more fun with the riding now that I'm getting used to how things changed.  Seems I can go over jumps at an angle now and it not totally freak the bike out, feel a lot more of the bumps and humps in the track surfaces now. Seems like the gyro effect of the rear wheel is a little better in the air, too?

I'd say it's a "necessary evil". I prefer by a mile this approach compared to the one of other sims (where you have a godzillion parameters to tune every possible aspect of the virtual rider).

I know "purists" will scream, but don't forget there's the virtual rider in the middle anyway, so ...
Or Piboso could hardcode it at 50 and hide it and people won't even notice. But having the slider is definitely better in my opinion.

Sorry teeds no mate.. I've been experimenting with throttle smoothing, brake smoothing, lower stability and getting somewhere.

One thing I've noticed though is that I think all my custom tracks are WAY to smooth. They're going to need a very light roughness to give the bike something to grip to I think..

Fair point Max, to have an option for less stable than before would seem an odd move.
Title: Re: MX Bikes beta4
Post by: HornetMaX on March 01, 2016, 01:12:50 pm
From what I've seen, even with the stab helper at zero, it's better than before. You actually feel more in control.
Title: Re: MX Bikes beta4
Post by: Joe on March 01, 2016, 01:18:15 pm
I still have an issue with controlling it coming out of banked corners especially heading into jumps. It doesn't seem to want to stand up straight and I go off the jump all wonky.

And casing a jump... near impossible to ride away from.

Still 1000000% better!
Title: Re: MX Bikes beta4
Post by: 𝖙𝖋𝖈 on March 01, 2016, 01:21:56 pm
Joe I think your describing something that will just take some getting used to.. Casing jumps is definitely different in b4 but I've ridden away from a few realistic cases so far, others I've backflipped lol
Title: Re: MX Bikes beta4
Post by: Joe on March 01, 2016, 01:24:37 pm
Oh for sure! I know it will get better with the more laps I run, maybe it was the back flipping that got me scratching my head. I case a jump and bounce straight up then flip backwards? You would think I would do a front flip first, just with all the forward momentum you have going.

We need to test this, maybe deformation after a time will yield the grip that a fresh track doesn't provide? Without deformation may be a different story though.

Agreed.. I guess I'm basing it on the grip levels of the stock tracks to my own leaving deformation aside. Paleta is like an ice rink..

At least as none of my tracks have roughness adding it is easier than smoothing!

TFC, please check your .tht file layer order. It should look like this:

material_layer0
{
material = compact soil
}

material_layer1
{
material = soil
thickness = 0.1
}

material_layer2
{
material = soft soil
thickness = 0.01
}


If compact soil is the top layer, then it will be a bit slippery and you'll have to re-export your trh.
Title: Re: MX Bikes beta4

Thanks Snappe! I am currently using compact soil for all my top layers as it was the grippiest in b3. Will get things reordered.

What to say!!!!
Impressive! BRAVO!

The game is much nicer to play!
The simulation is downright!
I'm really happy with the change.
You did a great job!
Go shopping without falling, takes pleasure in jumping, that's great!

Are hoping the community will grow enormously, and the game will continue evolved !!

A big congratulations to you!

Actually i played it and i liked it a lot for riding, but for fucks sake i cant move the bike in air.  :(
It´s probably practice tho, the 2 strokes and the supermoto 450f are amazing, love to slide that thing around!
The track deformation works better now and love the option to reset it, i´m still not totally convinced by this beta but i´sure i´ll like it after some practice, bike feels way more responsive and forgives you a lot more.

Huge thanks to Piboso and Snappe for all your hard work in this one. Really nicely implemented and executed, its cool that you've actually responded to our feedback and translated it the best you could. Now I need to spend some serious hours putting in good laps and learning how to whip again hahah. One huge bug for me though... we need waaaaayyyy more tracks.... can we persuade team piboso to do a nice track pack for us :)

I loved playing Beta 3, but Beta 4 is on a whole other level!  The control and subtleties in the handling are phenomenal.  This is easily the most amazing game(sim) I've ever played,  it's so realistic that my heart rate speeds up and I get a bit of an adrenaline rush while I'm playing.  Thanks for all the hard work Piboso and the other Devs.

This is so much better than before. I'm really wanting a different view though. I feel like I need a view from the neck that leans with the riders body. When I lean over in a corner my view of the bike swoops to the left or right of my screen, I want the view of the bike to stay centered in my screen, and my view lean, not the bike, I'm hoping that makes sense? My issue with this game is front wheel placement because of that, it's worlds better than before though!

Still one very obvious nagging problem to address before the masses would be happy with this, no prizes for guessing what it is.

Piboso, do we have server options for online deformation and collisions? If nothing has changed on the terrain front for online then it's probably best left off but the collisions would be good to have if possible. Hopefully a dedi documentation update is on they way  :)

Agreed.
Just gotta make s suggestion for everyone here if you haven't tried it already, I had the most fun I've ever had on this game to date by doing this for 20 mins this morning.
250as on forest raceway in the rain! Man what fun, traction off with 35 per cent stab on. Man I can't wait to get another chance to play again hahaha.

Post by: arnzzz on March 02, 2016, 07:46:49 pm
how is everyone finding the final downhill section on Forest?

I am struggling with it, mainly taking off the first jump on the right hand side of the track and not being able to get enough distance to land it.

I have cleared it and landed probably 5 times, but its hard, and I dont know what im doing in the bike setup enough to change the ratios to get extra speed when i need it most for this jump.

Ive come to the conclusion, my hang up is the fact im using auto gears so I dont have enough control when i most need it.

also im just not very good ;)

any advice?
Title: Re: MX Bikes beta4
Post by: 𝖙𝖋𝖈 on March 02, 2016, 07:58:41 pm
Auto gears are a killer.. I'm not coordinated enough to worry about using a clutch with my fingers so I use auto clutch but d-pad up and down for gears. You can really milk them which of course with auto you're probably getting into 3rd too early.

2nd gear on the 250xf and I overclear it. I've started scrubbing it slightly which helps!

I had exacly the same problem when playing with auto gears. In the corner the bike switches back to the 1st gear and when you accelerate again you lose all your momentum when it has to switch again the the 2nd gear. I think I only cleared it once with auto gears. The same problem happens when you actually clear the 1st jump. Bike switches back to first gear while in the air and when you accelerate for the 2nd jump it has to switch to 2nd gear again and you don't get enough speed. I play with manual gears now and stay in 2nd gear for this section and I clear it almost every time.

i use a 360 pad, Y= Upshift and B=Downshift. Manual is the only way to be consistent IMO, i hit that section in 2nd probably 3/4 throttle, once i take off i and upshift to 3rd midair then land wide open for the next jump. 250f that is.

its hittable in auto but you have to be pretty spot on and pinned when you hit the landing of the first jump.  Can't overjump by much either or you'll fall into the same not enough speed problem

Post by: Asdrael on March 03, 2016, 02:55:11 pm
Actually having a lot of fun now. It is much smoother than B3 and gives this feeling that you are pushing it and nearing the limit when you try, and don't spontaneously fall for no reason. So great work on the physics, getting there.

A few comments and suggestions:
- The "chest" view has a lot of clipping.
- The multiplayer has bikes warping around a lot (even between 2 riders with <50 ping). Is there any position interpolation in the netcode? It seems different than MXGP for sure.
- Sometimes, the front wheel washes out and it's nearly impossible to get it back on. Not sure why and how.
- Some if not most tracks would benefit from better thought out reset points. Getting stuck on a hill / berm is still way too frequent.
- Said reset points should be on the SIDE of the track so it requires less buffer time between riders and for safety with collision mode.
- Might only be me but the chest view feels too low, and the top-of-helmet view too high (and nausea inducing...). Would it be possible to add a slider for "camera height" ?
- I understand the full-simulation approach, but given the limited amount of fingers and pad options, a no-lock option on the back break would be nice. It's very on/off right now and makes the back end way too lose.

A big thank you to the people running the servers too. Lots of fun there. Collision on and put MXB Club in the rotation too please  :P

Unsure if i can answer your question in the full but there is a feature in the advanced options placement ( Right hand Side in the settings ) where you can adjust the speed/Percentage on said input. For example: My clutch is on a button, rather than my rider just going from 100% clutch to 0% i have adjusted it to go from 100% to 0% but with an easing affect. Probably slowing it down to roughly .300-500 of a second or so. Doing so prevents me from dumping the clutch. Same goes for my braking. Brakes lock up due to using too much of it all at once and doing it too fast. You can prevent this by adjusting in the settings: How much brake is applied, how fast the brake is applied, How fast it is released, etc. This is especially useful for people such as myself who have their brakes on a button rather than an Axis.
Title: Re: MX Bikes beta4
Post by: 𝖙𝖋𝖈 on March 03, 2016, 08:38:52 pm
You can also use 'brake help' from the simulation menu, although I always prefer to get better and lighter with my fingers sometimes you just need a computer to do it for you lol..

I've never ridden a MX bike irl, or spent any time in MXsim.

and my setup for MXB has always been auto gears, with rider ALWAYS standing.

Ive gone to manual gears now, and this is a massive help, and ive also noticed the difference going from sitting to standing at the right time can massively help with jumps.

But I wanted to know when everyone else uses sitting? Is it in all the turns? do you shift weight backwards while sitting as well?

Having just moved to manual gears im struggling to feel the intricacies of using sitting and to notice when its really helping, other than the obvious which is to improve jumping.

I find sitting down at the halfway point on a berm helps and I find I always have to lean backwards while sitting or I'll lose the front end.

I wish there was more of an indication when I am sitting or when I am dabing. Sometimes I don't know if I am dabbing or if I am actually sitting or standing, in third person this obviously wouldn't be an issue but in first it sure is!

Yes riding like you would irl would help a ton, sit at the apex of the corner.. leaning backwards  hmm never had the problem to where i loose my front end on this update.. did prior updates but ride like you would attack a corner irl and you should see improvement in your cornering.. Lean Back, Brake, Sit at the apex of the corner, lean forward and gas it

I've never ridden a MX bike irl, or spent any time in MXsim.

and my setup for MXB has always been auto gears, with rider ALWAYS standing.

Ive gone to manual gears now, and this is a massive help, and ive also noticed the difference going from sitting to standing at the right time can massively help with jumps.

But I wanted to know when everyone else uses sitting? Is it in all the turns? do you shift weight backwards while sitting as well?

Having just moved to manual gears im struggling to feel the intricacies of using sitting and to notice when its really helping, other than the obvious which is to improve jumping.

Sit for more traction, I sit at the start of corners for more rear end traction,you can sit before some jumps then stand just as you take off, thisSis called sear bouncing. Sitting is a must . I only really stand up through whoops,rough ground and jumping. The rest of the time you wanna be sitting for more traction, if your struggling with turning try sitting and leaning forward whilst turning for more grip and turning circle.
@joe really you wanna keep.it on auto dab, honestly I don't even bother with manual as the auto does a good enough job.

Beta 4 is really an huge improvement, thank you Piboso!!  (I would have been fine with beta 3 so this is just amazing!)


TRACK ISSUE: MX CLUB

There is fairly technical/long double on the backside of the track (parallel to the starting gate).. The left hand banking turn before the approach to this double seems to have some smoothing issues that I have not noticed before(beta 3) and/or anywhere else in beta 4.  It causes a lot of washouts and seems to cause the handlebar lock glitch that was so prevalent in b3. I really enjoy clearing that double one the 2-stroke but is really hard to not wash on the rough bank. Am I right or is this how it is suppose to be in this turn?

I'm not completely happy with the final downhill jump section though. If you mess up it's a real pain. I might move the jumps a bit closer together, although other ideas are welcome!

I think it's just fine, yes if you mess it up it's a pain but your laptime is done then anyway, and it's so short it takes no time at all to get back to the start.

The main problem I have is getting the anchors on in time to get the inside line as I think if done right it could be faster given the last jump gets you more ground time.

Personally I like it, that section is doable but there's not much room for error. On the 250XF it's very hard with grunt alone but add some throttle control plus some back or forward lean at the right point and you can reliably clear that section. I enjoy these little track challenges myself  ;D

Post by: Wedgewood on March 04, 2016, 02:36:05 pm
I'm also a fan of that section, I've found an easy way to clear it on the 2 stroke is to use up the front sprocket to 15 teeth, this gives much more usable power and will jump a lot farther.  I hit the first jump in first gear pinned aiming my bike slightly to the right, shift in the air into second and clear the next 2 jumps in second gear.

After testing the new beta since few days I can resume my feelings by : AMAZING!

I finally manage to make a full lap without a fall on MX tracks (well, not always  ;D) because I have the feeling that the bike is more predictable in turns. The stability help is a good idea : newbies like me in MX will appreciate the fact that we don't fall every turn and hardcore can still put it at 0%. I would not be able to give a constructive feedback otherwise, because to be honnest I never really played MBX since I'm not a huge MX enthousiast, so my ~10 hours since few days are no representative compared to what I've been used to before  :-[ But that new beta will change the thing  :D

The new content is great : the 2 stroker is fun to ride and holy sh*t the supermoto is just perfect to me. The hangling is exactly what I've beend trying to get with GPB. I had two dreams about bike simulators : supermoto and Isle of Man. The first one is done, now you know what to do PiBoSo and Snappe!  :-* ;D

So again congratulations. I hope and I bet that this new beta will brings new users because you made something really impressive.

This is coming from someone who doesn't ride irl so what im asking for is just what I like and not based in reality.

The only thing I would have on Forest that isn't there now is a berm, on the corner at the bottom of the final downhill, i always feel like that breaks my flow as I have to inch around that corner.

Post by: GDUBMX on March 05, 2016, 11:14:59 am
@arnzz I know what you mean but the track is super one lined anyway so having those braking bumps on that flat turn does add a separation from the novices to experts. I personally like that turn as it promotes throttle control, honestly keep practicing that turn and it will help you out hugely on similar turns on other tracks. But I always got inside on that turn so.I guess and outside been would be ok but does anyone even use that line? Haha

Yeah I guess you have a point there. And no, ive never used the outside line apart from if i over shoot lol.

My throttle control using gears is getting much better now, so im more happy with that turn that I was using auto :)

Are we able to swap Trainer files? I think this would be amazing, if I could download or swap a Trainer file with some of the fastest guys, so I can see the lines they take.

I think that would be an awesome addition to this site, or even MXB Central, to have a section to download other peoples trainer files :)

What times are people getting with the 2stroke on Forest? Im getting ~50 seconds

It's a shame, it's not so much of a problem in practice but when someone cores out a race if they're quick enough they can get back in which gives you the big freeze for at least a second.

The rider trainer (ghost) is a huge improvement to overall quality experience! If the servers are being grumpy at least we have someone to compete with anytime!!

I must admit, I've tried 0, 100 and everything in between and I keep coming back to the higher end 80 and up..

It's not because I don't have the skill to ride with it lower, riding with it off feels like beta 3 on ice, but riding with it on the higher end feels so good and i haven't had any problems with not being able to whip or scrub..

For me, auto dab seems to cause problems when trying to whip and scrub. Turn it off and its all gravy  8)

whatever steering angle you leave the lip of the jump with, try holding it through the entire jump and landing,  this will help keep the bike straight and will allow you to land smooth.
Title: Re: MX Bikes beta4
Post by: BadStar on March 08, 2016, 04:09:34 pm
Interesting note on auto dab.. I have just begun to handle whips ok but maybe with auto dab off it will become easier?! Will experiment as soon as I get off work!

100% stab-only bc I haven't experimented w/changes
100% Direct Lean
Rider lean L/R has to be manual or I cant whip for anything, which ofcourse most of us probably prefer to manually lean (considering it's a sim but fairly noted)
I use alot of smoothing on various controls.. like clutch bc its set on my left bumper and smoothing helps simulate a lever feel instead of a on/off.
*I had to turn smoothing on L/R lean off to makes whips work better. Next is try auto dab off as fats recommends.
Note: newb to mxb so don't take my set up serious, lol.

thanks for beta 4!

very nice to see some forward progression!! the game is actually playable now!!

On the flat stuff the bikes handling is very good, predictable and just very fun.

some feedback/ ideas for next beta:

1) back end slides round too easy and is too hard to just slide slightly. maybe the bulldozing feature could be increased to help with the bike from sliding right around.
2) If you come up short on a jump it seems the bike bounces about twice the height it should, even with full rebound damping setting? maybe the spring/damping figures for the actual wheels need tweaking!

3) jumping is a little weird still and unpredictable, maybe its the way the camera is(3rd person) but it feels very animated, it feels as when the bike goes off the upramp there is a slight pause???. making it feel animated and not smooth.

4) need direct steering hardcore mode to attract us mxs peoples. I tried it again with beta 4 but it still isnt really usable unless it gets some more features.(this is needed for whipping)

overall, huge step forwards!!
cheers al
Title: Re: MX Bikes beta4
Post by: 𝖙𝖋𝖈 on March 09, 2016, 12:21:53 pm
al, I don't agree that direct steering hardcore mode is necessary for whipping, just see my latest video in the vids topic..  Maybe try disabling auto dab if you have it on, as that caused problems for me on takeoff's..
Title: Re: MX Bikes beta4

I must say, whipping seemed impossible but once I "got" it..it became amazingly realistic feeling and much more fluid..

I personally fixed the "bounce" issue buy reducing "rebound" by 2 points from 8 to 6 on both front/back suspension. I have noticed no change in my ride besides th bad bounce u mention on a short landing and it cleared that up well!!

Just a note.. I don't know how you guys ride in 3rd person.. it's so hard to judge turns etc..this game seems to require 1st person only (for me atleast)..I don't know if it's bc I ride and need to be seeing similiar visuals but I doubt it. 1st person makes a world of diff imo

I can do both but much prefer the spacial awareness of 3rd person. Also find it easier to judge when the bike is at it's limit.
Title: Re: MX Bikes beta4
Post by: BadStar on March 09, 2016, 08:20:57 pm
You definitely right about spacial awareness.. I just can't handle the turns well in 3rd.. wash/slide out much easier..once again, I'm fairly new to this sim so it may simply be that.

I come from automobile sim racing so 3rd person view is far too foreign to me.  I overcorrect and steer far too much with that sort of view in any sim so I stick to as close to 1st person as I can get.

I've been playing a lot and it's a blast! Way more practice needed, lol. Today I was in offline testing mode on Enduro and I stopped and was AFK for a couple of minutes and when I came back, the second I started riding again it crashed and I got the following message...

How's sales been piboso?  I've had 2 people tell me they have bought the game and 1 more tell me  he's  bought the game thanks to my beta 4 videos,  I've also had an extra 15 subscribers since its release. Plus my pitbike video has had loads of views already so pretty good news for mxb  I'd say.

Indeed, I had a friend see my preview for the SM Bikes Pack and buy a copy instantly. He is hooked too, hasn't stopped talking about how fun it is. I'm curious how sales are doing as well. It seems every one of us that is big time into MXB has brought at least one or two people into it.  :)

al, I don't agree that direct steering hardcore mode is necessary for whipping, just see my latest video in the vids topic..  Maybe try disabling auto dab if you have it on, as that caused problems for me on takeoff's..


ok I will try disabling dab!

TFC- there are many types of whips, it seems mxb is capable of only 1 type. some whips you need to steer away from the upramp(flat whip)  and others turndown style needs to steer the other way(this is mxb type). and scrubs......just cant be done.
How can you steer away from you with the bike leaned over when you only have lean control and the computer will only steer into the lean?

Heck this is a sim right?  why not full steering control?  mxs sold 20 000 copies.

I agree that much can be done with the air physics still, but to say there is only one way to whip and that scrubbing is impossible is just ignorant and proves you haven't put enough time in to the game to learn how to do it. It took me a long time to get to level i was at in mxs, the first 3 weeks i had problems even getting around a supercross track. Also, Mxs has evolved over several years, if you compare the first version to this one it would be like two different games.

Give it time and stop comparing it to mxs.

i really wish it would let me upload my pics i scrub almost everything and ive done various whips its all about how you move your fingers on the sticks just practice but  you will crash alot just a heads up

Post by: Vortex_Damien on March 11, 2016, 04:57:23 pm
I agree with kyle, this game offers a lot with air physics, while they may not be perfect you can still scrub and whip just like you can in Mx Sim. you can just expect to jump into the game and get it all down. sit down, learn the game and it will come naturally.
Title: Re: MX Bikes beta4
Post by: Paradox28 on March 12, 2016, 06:18:14 am
well I can't whip for ISH!  I do good when my rear end comes back around like I want it to when it steps out over a jump.  Just seems like mine is unresponsive still even after trying everything from 80 stab to 100. Automatic lean on or off, dab on or off...I dunno what it is.
Title: Re: MX Bikes beta4
Post by: BadStar on March 12, 2016, 07:48:38 am
This is not official but try this.

Direct lean 100%
Stability 100%
Rider l/r & f/b auto off
Auto dab off

Set lean to left joy
Set lean l/r & f/b to right joy

Sit while going up ramp, "lightly" Push left joy "left" and lightly push right joy right, it has to be light or you will throw rear to far and it wont come back..then reverse controls to come back.

More technical - may need a Lil panic Rev to keep from endo..may need to stand mid air or after launch..

my technique is similar except for the landing,  instead of reversing both controls I only reverse the body lean and leave the steering input to the same angle,  I find leaving the steering angle the same as takeoff gives a real smooth landing especially when your not lined straight up.  I find I can also lay the whip flat by sitting and leaning back on takeoff.
Title: Re: MX Bikes beta4
Post by: BadStar on March 12, 2016, 03:24:42 pm
Hey wedge.. maybe I do the same thing and was just thinking I did reverse both on the landing. I need to test it.

And yes, leaning back on takeoff seems to help overall

Hey thank you, yes this is impossible to mesure how much it changed. I rode 1 hour this afternoon and, my god, something is happening. I am a very active guy into the mxsimulator game community owning mxs-concept.com ans mxsimulator.fr, now since I tried the beta 4 I'm already building something for mx bikes french players.

Totally OT, pretty sure we rode together for a few laps at Holjes on the 450's, first time riding supermoto on B4 online for me, was a blast running the few laps I had time for. :)

1st attempt with little editing skill at my own skin. Posting here in hopes to inspire more people like me who think gimp/photoshop are written in chinese.

A rough replica of your own ride is better than no replica so do it!! Still needs plenty of work but thank u piboso for your sim, it's amazing and will only get better.

Are we likely to see improvements with the draw distance Piboso? With large open environments it's almost game breaking seeing big squares pop up and disappear. Also his there a way to fix textures in replay mode? They seem to deteriorate withing that specific mode.

It's been officially stated that it's a known issue that you can't fix with settings as I guess it's part of the engine. Hopefully it will be fixed up in a future version but no official word yet.

It has more to do with fov. 1st person view it's more noticeable than 3rd and in replay mode it's even worse in helmet cam due to the high fov. You can test yourself in replay free roam by adjusting fov.

I'm a bit lost, what issue exactly are you guys discussing ?
The sudden appearing of environment objects that are far away, due to a too small max value of the drawdistance ?
