Very nice track indeed. Got my lap down to 44sec on my second race. Very fun track indeed. Great Music ;-)
I havent played mtm2 in months and i'm glad i started playing again with this track.

Some interesting stuff in here. As usual, Mal got this particular way of making the most simple layout and turn it into something real cool challenging that flows very well.

Great job there buddy

Everything looks and drives great but the jumping racing boats are hilarious and the execution of that trick is nothing short of brilliant. Excellent track all around! <i>Hooo I guaronteee!</i> [:P]



>> Where did you get the music?

From <a href=http://members.xoom.virgilio.it/mtm2/Music>Track Tracks</a> (originally downloaded from a source similar to your link).


>> Any idea where there is more music of this style?

The style itself is known as "Dixieland Jazz". Example: <a href=http://www.yarl.org/mp3s.htm>Dr. Jazz</a>


>> His name is dreamer. If u search...

The textures and some of the models are from evo1's bayou bugger. The terrain is all mine. :)

Thank you all for the comments, I'm glad you liked it... now I need to do something about that 'king of the circuits' cloud and make something a lil' longer.. lol

Clouds are not necessarily a bad thing, Mal lol. I’m telling ya man, time and time again you’ve taken these very small, basic layouts and made them into MTM 2 classics, and that’s not just my opinion either. I think one other guy feels the same way, but he doesn't play the game anymore, so I guess we can't count him, huh? LOL kidding, of course. :)

I don’t recall what track I was reviewing, but I mumbled something about just because a person is well versed in binedit/binedit 2, paint programs, and can manipulate Traxx doesn’t mean they know how to make tracks…ya know? In many ways it's a craft, and it takes significantly more than just connecting the dots and filling in the blanks. Ragin Cajun is probably one of the finest examples of simplicity (layout) combined with complexity (superb model work – both animated and static) that will max the fun meters of racers irrespective of the level of play, whether it’s rookie, intermediate or pro. Few track makers are able to pull off such a feat, but Mal has done it time and time again…and he makes it seem so routine. It’s sickening lol.

What many of you may not know is this is one of the few tracks where Mal used beta testers. I suppose you could say it’s (beta testing) kind of a pet peeve of mine because I harp on track makers about this all the time. It just makes good sense to have different eyes looking at your work with the collective goal being to come out with a final product that’s measurably better than it would have been without input from others. Where Mal fits into all of this is he rarely uses testers. On the surface that may not seem to have much impact, but let me tell ya, line up 6 or 7 of his tracks and set aside some time to just wander thru them having a good look around…and be sure to max out your graphics settings. If you’re not amazed and impressed by the superior workmanship and attention to detail, then maybe Scrabble is more your speed lol. All I know is it literally astounds me that he’s capable of staying on top of all the microscopic details, and again, given the complexity of his tracks…well geez, I kinda get all misty (in a good way) just thinking about it lol. Winterkill probably best described how I felt after he ran a few laps on a beta version and noticed a few trees that were “root-side up”, as he put it: “I guess you had to give Cope something to notice so he wouldn't feel he'd wasted his time testing, in case everything was otherwise perfect." Yep, that pretty much sums it up, too, but Phin had already beat me to em lol. I recall Mal handing me a beta version of “KC’s Backyard”. I found one boulder that needed adjusting, and suggested that one of his bridges be tilted slightly more to the right. That’s all I found lol. As a matter of fact, now that I’ve written this stuff and thought about it a little, I’m not sure if I want to beta test any more of Mal’s tracks. I would probably feel more useful watching the snow melt in my backyard lol.

All kidding aside (temporarily), Mal’s work seems to always fall into the “that’s just incredible” category. Ok so maybe I did unfairly label him a “master of short circuits”, which could suggest to some that he’s incapable of producing a decent rally. But we know that’s not true because of classic tracks like “Rock Ridge”, “Panama”, “Skull Islands”, “Siberia Creek” “Deadman’s Gulch”, and “Kodiak Island”. I don’t know, I kinda thought that if someone put the word “master” in front of anything it was typically a compliment of sorts. Then again maybe Mal’s just cranky—who the heck knows lol. The bottom line is like every track I’ve reviewed buy this guy, to include the couple I haven’t (yet lol), this baby is a slam-dunk “10” – no doubt about it. What more can I say, bud – another great track in a long line of masterpieces! I can’t wait to see what’s next. Say – what is next, anyway?

As usual after a Cope posting there not much left to be said (even if this one was obviously written according to his new CONCISE concept (COpe's Nearly-Compact Information ShipmEnt).

Anyway, it's a great track and the speed boats are indeed excellent.

The brake pedal of your wheel combo is broken? It's a handicap you can live with on this track. I found it ideally suited for setting up a quick LAN race where nobody whines about racing a track he or she hasn't practised extensively. 10mn Ragin' training allows everybody to reach his level of competitivity and the fun can begin.

Thanks again for the kind feedback everyone, and especially you Cope lol that was fun to read, good stuff, and some of it was even true heheh..

Clouds & circuits... I had wanted to do a rally instead cajun but I only had until the 1st to get another track out due to my MTMG contractual agreement... failing to do so would have resulted in my having to return my annual $7.53 Christmas bonus and fruitcake brick. :o)
