I thought I’d beat a few more of Tim’s scores today, so did so. Specifically, Route 1. I then went and tried some of the Challenges, but failed on them all. They’re too hard. FACT.
Then something bizarre happened. I decided to try and beat Tim’s Route 4 score, so chose his ghost to race. All was well (aside from me being behind) until the first split in the road – I could only go left, as I expected, but Tim’s ghost went right. Through the big Go Left Arrows. How odd. I managed to beat his time, and uploaded my ghost and score, but they didn’t appear on the scoreboard. Very odd. So I tried again. This time I beat Tim by a good 10 seconds (although he went through the Go Left Arrows again), and once more I uploaded my ghost and score. And they didn’t appear on the scoreboard.
So I assumed Tim’s ghost was playing silly buggers, and chose someone else’s ghost to play again. Sure enough, the car went right when I could only go left, and my score didn’t appear on the table. I tried three more times, with other ghosts, and again – nothing.
Then I decided to try another route. Tim hadn’t set a score for Route 3, but I thought I’d give it a shot. Nice time, score uploaded, ghost saved. But what’s this? My score isn’t on the table. Instead, my time from Route 4 is listed for Route 3. Playing the same route again, against my own ghost confirms it – the ghost car takes a turn I can’t. And now it seems my Route 3 score is listed under Route 5!
What the hell is going on?
