The Crash Mode Protocols - The History of Strats (7)
Big Finds #7
This is not such a big find like the ones already mentioned on the protocols but it also is one which works on several zones, so it can be called a "overall find" too.
There also isn't some good story behind the discovery. In 2005 i was playing on Zone 30 (Head On Highway) and right after the starting curve there are some cones (I don't know if there is a specific english word for them. It is those red/white colored cones which are used on road works for example.). And in one of the endless tries i drove over those cones without thinking of anything, and then i realized the truck changed. On a more precise look it wasn't only the truck, it was the whole traffic (different buses, boxtrucks instead of vans or the other way around, and the small cars changed). I told Drew22werD about and we thought of other zones where you can drive over stuff.
Those zones were Dangerous Curve (those fences right at the start on the right side), Surf Shocker (road signs at red wall and the start, also the mail boxes at the start), Cross Traffic Crash (road barriers and cones on the curve) and Head On Highway as mentioned (cones after curve). There are other zones with cones where it doesn't work or the traffic is already triggered before and can't be changed. Now the impact of this find can be discussed if it really is a help for those zones it is working on.
There is changing traffic also on other zones which is caused by using different cars, using different versions (console/hz), driving different paths, starting later, using certain speeds on the start and i don't know if also the speed itself while the traffic is triggered can be a parameter. I think i mentioned now all different possibilities to change the traffic.
Two examples how this can look like and which impact it has on those zones.
1st one is Cross Traffic Crash. There are cones and a road barrier on the curve which change the traffic and also driving different paths after the curve can change the traffic (don't remember if also different cars can change the traffic). Since the best strat to use there is a trailer strat you want an Oil Tanker or "big grey" truck to appear, as they are the best for damage on trailers. This is done by driving a certain path after the curve, so the cones and road barrier are currently useless for that strat (while using the Custom Pickup).
Example Vid Zone 26
2nd example is Dangerous Curve. As there is no truck the main focus lies on the buses. By the way there are 3 different buses (bus with flat roof/bus with bump on roof/bus with numbers on roof). It isn't really known if those buses are different on the damage but they are on the weight (physics). A flat one is a lighter one and can flip easier, the other ones are heavier and can maybe work better as a barrier for example. Now how much of difference this can make can also be discussed.
There are some fences on this zone and, depends which you drive over, a lot of different bus/traffic combinations can appear. Also the last 3 small cars change. Of course could be useful if those are heavier/bigger cars, as they crash into the pile up and can make the buses shake and move better.

Cause the active community was always small in Crash Mode, it always is a nice/special moment if someone new appears with a score for the rankings. This time it is another Crasher from the UK. Inko gaming got 128,7 million on Late Arrival/11 and entered the Top-25 on 21st place. Before he already posted a 60 million video for that zone on Youtube.
And with every new addition to the community we hope to see more scores. Welcome to the WCR.

Crashfreak got 271,7 million on Downtown Destruction/22 and climbed 1 spot back into the Top-3 (previous PR 166,4mil). He missed a 3rd busspin which could have ended in a approx. 22 million damage glitch or 350 million score.
He also beat the 2 weeks old best Xbox 60hz video for that zone by 21 million (250,7mil/Brainkiller007).
On the Totals he beat the magical 7 billion mark and is the 1st one to achieve that, congrats.
Video Zone 22 - 271,7 millionTop 25 - Downtown Destruction/22
If someone would have said some years ago, that the 7 billion mark will be beaten by someone (and that even without sink-scores), i would have said it is impossible. But the strats and knowledge kept improving and it was just a question of time it will happen. With the recent improvements on the scores/strats on zone 22 and 26 it was sure, that it will happen soon. Now that it happened, i can sure see a 7,5 billion total happening. 8 billion seems too far right now, but would be a new crazy and ultimate goal and if you count in that strats keep improving, we might see it happen some day.
As a reminder the 6 billion mark was 1st beaten by Anthony Burnout on November 30th 2015, the 5 billion mark by Brainkiller007 on August 29th 2006 and the 4 billion mark by Drew22werD sometime in late 2003 or 2004 and he was also probably the 1st one to beat the 3 billion mark in summer 2003.

The Crash Mode Protocols - The History of Strats (6)
Big Finds #6
Donut Hyper Speed (DHS)
It's been a while since the last protocol. So far the discovery of the RST (Runaway Super Take-off), "Trailer damage", "Late start", RST MT and "Sink-glitch" were explained. Next one is the "Donut Hyper Speed", in short DHS. The name already explains a little about that, yes another glitch in the game. You have to do "donuts" to activate a glitch, which will result in insanely fast speeds, which at a certain speed will make the car impossible to control.
It needed almost 15 years till someone discovered that glitch. In 2017 sparker599 came up with the DHS and i wondered how did he found it. But it needed another new discovery before, also from sparker599. A probably very unknown one, maybe cause it still wasn't found to be helpful/better for any zone/strat and therefore not being used much. It is the "Quick start". It basically works like the RST just without the Runaway mode being activated. You need to use manual transmission (MT) and also release the brake at a certain point. It is a tiny bit faster than the usual "Turbo start". You will notice that you arrive a little bit earlier at the crashing spots.
Here is an example vid of: Video "Quick start"
For a new trailer-strat on Sandstorm Shredder he tried to get behind the green arrows to get more speed for that strat. That is why he also used that mentioned "Quick start" (using MT). Remember, you also need manual transmission for activating DHS. After not being successful he started to get bored and frustrated and started to do donuts cause of that. When the timer ran out he noticed the car still accelerated to 160mph, what immediately seemed unusual to him. So he tried it for another 2-3 times and the car accelerated to 200mph and sparker599 knew he found something special. That is the story and not only in Crash Mode, things are often found by accident.
And cause i'm just here writing this i will also explain the mini-story, why we called it "Donut Hyper Speed". The donut part is very obvious. You have to do "donuts" to activate that glitch. And the word "hyper" came from the famous Action Replay "Hyper cheat", cause it reminded us with the abnormal speed a little bit of it.
What just came to my mind cause i wrote "you have to do donuts". In fact, if you take a deeper look onto, probably you need to hold the rpm at the limit for those 10 seconds and then the game will glitch. But you need those donuts (and manual transmission) to get to that point. But, this is just a theory.
Thanks for reading, see you next time.

MR Benga92 got 2 new PRs. On Out of Control Tower/3 he got 362,2 million and on Late Arrival/11 he got 62,0 million.
Video Zone 3 - 362,2 millionVideo Zone 11 - 62,0 million
Timmey064 got 78,1 million on Downtown Destruction/22 (previous PR 50,5mil). On the Totals he beat the 3,4 billion mark.
Video Zone 22 - 78,1 million
Usually i release news about PRs only on Top-25 scores or if someone, who is new for example, has a amount of new PRs or if it is just some "special" occasion. Or i just add those PRs on the next "Top-25" news. I also had lately the idea of releasing news once a week to have summarized news like after the August month. And like you surely already noticed i lately added thoughts and infos and other stuff on the news to make it a little more an interesting read and that people, who are not so deep into all this, have more knowledge and information about all this stuff.

Anthony Burnouts 4th PR this year happened on Downtown Destruction/22. He got 212,9 million with one of those weird trailer glitches and climbed from 7th onto 3rd place (previous PR 150,7mil).
On the Totals he beat the 6,1 billion mark.
Btw we call it "weird trailer glitch" cause on a trailer-hit the truck will sometimes do a not so powerful looking glitch without kicking other vehicles but for some reason the trailer will create a lot of damage. Those kind of glitches are not that exciting and fun to watch like the usual glitch where other vehicles are sent flying.

It is always nice if you check Youtube for new scores and then you see a new PR from someone who wasn't active for some time.
Timmey064, whose last PR is from almost 1 and a half years ago, got 39,7 million on Pacific Peril/4 and entered the Top-25 on 12th place. He was missing a PR for that zone since the sink-glitch remove.

Donut Hyper Speed or in short DHS
Some maybe already forgot about or missed that find by sparker599 from last year. I will tell more about in the next episode of the Crash Mode protocols. It is a glitch which is triggered by doing donuts right at the start which then will trigger completely ridiculous speeds. Now there has been a discussion again to include them on the default rankings (at the moment seperate rankings like for sink-glitches or non-glitch scores are missing). And the majority of the community is against it to include them.
Yes it is a glitch and some will say why not allow it, if already the flying truck glitch is allowed. But the flying truck glitch is something else. Without, the whole vids and WCR and all that stuff wouldn't have taken this path and wouldn't even exist. It is just a part of the Crash Mode, a big headstone of all, one of the reasons people are still playing this game, it is the crash of the crashes. Like it was just done for the Crash Mode.
And btw if i am right at this topic it can be very hard and annoying to determinate if a crash was done without a flying-truck glitch. Some people will wonder, what is already called a glitchy score. Cause even the tiniest of the tiniest truck-move already won't count for the non-glitch scoreboard. In some cases even with several replays and camera angles it is hard to impossible to tell no truck-move happened. Without a video and good cam angles on the replays you can't create a non-glitch scoreboard. Just an info for all people out there who tell "play a game without glitches".
But back to the topic. 1 zone was found by sparker599 who lets you get very high scores doing DHS. It is Glass Canyon/12 where sparker599 got a score of 139 million using DHS (would be ranked 3rd on the WCR). Now CoastalCrusher found another zone. On Pacific Peril/4 he built the existing strat into a DHS one and got a score of 82,1 million, which beats the current World Record by 11 million.
My main argument to not include DHS into the default rankings is, that it is just a massive changer. It would just be a too heavy cut into how the game is played depsite the fact, that it probably would help on just a handful of zones. I have added a link below with an example video to see, what speeds DHS is capable of.
And as there are no separate rankings at the moment, I will announce it on the news if new good strats are found or a high score was beaten using DHS.

And to continue on the usual news. A PR which was done in August is still missing. Mkrawnis got 38,9 million on Pacific Peril/4 and climbed from 19th onto 12th place (previous PR 32,1mil). It was his 2nd PR in 2018.
On the Overall Rankings he climbed from #9 to #8.

2 new World Records on Downtown Destruction/22 and the "new" scenario
There was a good progress on the trailer-strat on Zone 22. A not really new scenario makes it possible, to also get the parked bus to spin. And as a bonus outcome, that parked bus will in the most cases get kicked into the other parked bus and kick or spin it too.
On August 13th Brainkiller007 beat his own 166,9 million World Record from over a year ago with 171,3 million. It was also a new best best Xbox 50hz video for that zone, previous best was also done by Brainkiller007 in last years April (162,2mil).
Video Zone 22 - 171,3 million
On August 24th CostalCrusher beat his PR of 101,1 million and got 116,2 million. On the same day he beat the World Record again and got a huge 287,8 million score with 19,1 million of damage. On the Top-25 he jumped from 18th place onto the top spot. It was his 2nd World Record he ever got (1st one happened on Dangerous Curve/20 btw).
This also beats the best Gamecube 50hz video by Crashfreak from December 2016 (166,4mil).
On the Overall Rankings CoastalCrusher climbed 1 spot and is the new #4 in the World of Crashing. On the Totals he beat the 5,4 billion mark.

On August 29th Brainkiller007 beat his PR again and got 274,0 million. It was his 5th PR in 2018 and on the Top-25 he is ranked 2nd with that score. He also beat the best Gamecube 60hz video from BoneCrasherMania1 from almost 5 years ago (162,0mil).
On the Totals Brainkiller007 beat the 6,7 billion mark.

The 5 billion Total within 1 month
What else happened in August. Crashfreak did Drew22werDs good old "crashing the date" month. A challenge/ritual where you crash the zone the date number says. For example on the 1st of the month you crash on zone 1, on the 2nd on zone 2 and so on.
And he did really outstanding this month getting a lot of good scores and achieved a Total of over 5,1 billion with even 5 new PRs!
On the 1st of the month he beat the best Gamecube 60hz video even 3 times! 1st with a 341,6 million score, then 347,0 and finally 395,5 million. The best video before was over 4 years old and done by BoneCrasherMania1 (253,8mil). Also mentionable on the 347 million score he missed the best damage for that zone by 1,2 million only (31,5mil).
Video Zone 1 - 341,6 millionVideo Zone 1 - 347,0 millionVideo Zone 1 - 395,5 million
Edit: Updating all those scores i lost the overview, there is a mistake. The 347,0 million score on Down Hill Demolition/1 was done on 50hz.
On Pacific Peril/4 he got a new PR with 57,4 million. On the Top-25 he climbed from 4th onto the 3rd spot (previous PR 56,2mil).
Video Zone 4 - 57,4 millionTop 25 - Pacific Peril/4
On Sprint Smash/17 he beat the best Gamecube 50hz video by 4 million getting 213,0 million. The previous best was an almost 3 year old score also done by him (209,2mil).
Video Zone 17 - 213,0 million
On Criss Cross Crush/18 he got another new PR with 91,9 million. On the Top-25 he climbed from 5th onto 3rd place (Previous PR 79,2mil).
Video Zone 18 - 91,9 millionTop 25 - Criss Cross Crush/18
His 3rd PR he got on Roadblock/19 with 101,7 million. On the Top-25 it was a good jump for him climbing from 10th onto the 2nd spot (previous PR 91,1mil). He also achieved a new highest-damage-ever record for that zone with 7,8 million. And it is only the 2nd score ever over 100 million at this zone!
Video Zone 19 - 101,7 millionTop 25 - Roadblock/19
Another PR happened on the 26th on Cross Traffic Crash/26. He got 137,0 million and climbed from 6th onto the 4th spot (previous PR 117,6mil).
Video Zone 26 - 137,0 millionTop 25 - Cross Traffic Crash/26
And the 5th and last PR was done on Switch Back Shocker/29. He got 142,7 million and on the Top-25 he climbed from 4th onto the 3rd place (previous PR 125,0mil).
He also beat the best Gamecube 50hz video for that zone by 15 million. The previous best was done by Brainkiller007 already 10 years ago (127,0mil).
Video Zone 29 - 142,7 millionTop 25 - Switch Back Shocker/29
You can check all scores he got during this month on the link below and on his Youtube channel.
Crash Month - Scores ListYoutube Channel - Crashfreak
What else can be said about this crash month. On 3 zones he was close to his PR. On Glass Canyon/12 only 2 million were missing, on Sprint Smash/17 only 8 million and on Dangerous Curve/20 only 3 million. With his new PRs he only has 1 zone left not being placed within the Top-5, which is Sandstorm Shredder/7 with a 6th place.
That's it for now and there will be another news release for scores and PRs from August.
