Race

How do you host a race on the internet? The only choices I see on the host menu are treasure hunt, battle, and capture the flag... Not that I can host, but how do you, anyway?

I like the JazzForce program better, it has more functions and is more user friendly.

Where is this JazzForce program? I downloaded XJJ2, but it wouldn't run. I double click and it just, well, nothing happens.

Also Labrat, I've seen people host "races" that are treasure hunts with a goal to get to one place and when they get there they just say "I'm here."

Well, it's not quite like that.

Players start (this part is optional) inside a locked room, once everyone has downloaded and is ready, the server hits a trigger crate which starts the race.
The racers race through the level in an ordinary way.
When they reach the finish, either they get a coin, or a trigger zone. If you have enough coins, or have gotten enough triggers (using a fairly simple system), you are warped to the end area, which can be basically anything. It usually has gems and an exit.

It's superior to race mode in just about everything, except that it doesn't show you lap times, or which lap you're in.

Well yes, I've seen that too. But I've also seen exactly what I said.

you foos all forgot foo races.
they are not like anything listed above.
just a normal race level (except race7, which has a place for the server to start the race). Foo races don't need fancy triggers ;p
