Hey does anyone know if loading times have improved?
I played this game couple of months ago with my brother, and really liked it, only thing was those loong loading times. Now I wonder if I should buy this on Switch or Xbox One.

"Wake me... when you need me."

@Justifier sometimes I think the load times after races got a little shorter. I'm not sure if my memory is accurate though.

Oh, if you have the option, go Xbox for load times. It's my understanding that ps4 & xbox have shorter load times. I guess, see if you can find info to back that up before you buy.

The new halloween track, Nina's Nightmare, is super cool. So are the ghosts that bust out of the crates, and the glowing spectral paint jobs.

If anyone wondered when daily nitro points reset in the US for the Spooky GP, it appears to be 10am.

Anyone finding the most recent update rather unstable? It's taking quite long for characters to load in online lobbies (the course select screen), plenty of people are disconnecting during the race and I'm being sent back to finding players after a race.

@Grumblevolcano You might be right. The game seems to freeze more while customizing in the Matchmaking lobby. I know people disconnect in the lobby if there isn't a high paying track. But losing everyone in loobby, or lobby reloads seem more frequent.

I'm suprised how ugly the Nitro Circus paint jobs are.

It's kind of nice we can earn more nitro points this GP. I'm almost done silver tier because I've been earning +70% rather than the original max of 50%.

This may be for North America region only, but in case it's not well known, there's a special dlc kart for CTR you can get from Trident Vibes gum & dlc wheels from Sour Patch Kids candy. Look for those candies with CTR logos on them. The promotion started last summer, expires march 2020. I saw the trident gum at Five Below yesterday in the US.

You have to create an Activision account to redeem the dlc codes. If you don't see a Switch platform option creating the account, pick ios/other. After the account is created, then option to pick the Switch as your platform is available in account settings.

"Mondelez" appears to be the parent or marketing company,

Only orange trident gives the kart. Blue and green color trident give a paintjob. Regular? Sour Patch Kids =wheels.

@Woomy_NNYes did you manage to get all the sour patch codes?

They're at it again! This time, something called Xfinity is giving out codes for an exclusive kart! I got no chance as I am in the UK aparrently the codes can be used twice though

ralphdibny

WoomyNNYes

@ralphdibny i did get the sour patch codes. I got the car, paint job & wheels. There may have been a code for kart stickers, but i didn't care to get it.

Oof, xfinity is what Comcast calls their cable tv service. (forgive me if our terminology is different). Here in the US, getting ripped off by cable company monopolies is a time honored tradition I don't have xfinity. I have the rival cable people, Verizon Fios. So, i can't help ya. Man we love getting ripped off by cable here

I can look for Sour Patch Kids CTR candy next time Im out, though, if you want. Supplies have dwindled, but it might still be lurking.

@Woomy_NNYes nah it's all good cheers, I ended up buying the sour patch ones on ebay for roughly the amount that the sweets would've cost. I know it's a bit sad but I did decide to unlock all content as soon as I first played the game and unfortunately all this promotional stuff falls under that banner.

I did get really lucky with the Xfinity car after scouring Reddit, gamefaqs and YouTube, I posted in a non CTR related thread and a kind person got the code for me and sent it my way.

I did hear about these cable monopolies in different states in America! I don't think we use cable so much over here any more. There was a brief period where it was better than satellite and the adverts said cartoon network would run 24 hours instead of turning into TNT at night but my family never got it. Now it seems satellite, aerial and internet are the main TV distribution methods. I only use the net though because Sky (I think the UKs main satellite provider) sucks because it's so expensive and our aerial reception is rubbish when people park in the driveway for some reason.

@Woomy_NNYes just posted an eshop code for that Xfinity cart and deleted it, should hopefully be in the e mail notification you received for the post. Should be redeemable on the eshop

ralphdibny

WoomyNNYes

@ralphdibny I posted my secondary email and deleted it after 30 seconds. Check your email notification for it. Wow, though. Seriously! Thanks ralphdibny! We'll see if it works.

@Woomy_NNYes cool, I emailed you it. Let me know if it works! Should do unless some eagle eyed person nicked it in the time it took for me to delete the post!

ralphdibny

WoomyNNYes

@ralphdibny Holy expletive! It worked. The code worked & the kart downloaded. Wow. I don't know how to thank you. This is pretty awesome. Thanks ralphdibny!! Thanks a lot, my friend.

How'd you get it?

I don't understand why they tie cool kart DLC to such a limited offering, when they could just outright sell it, like that military green plane they did in the fall.

@Woomy_NNYes no problemo, glad it worked. I just wished it was all in game tbh, no paid dlc (unless it was a substantial expansion like the CNK story or CTTR tracks and or story if it had one) or promotional shenanigans.

It turned out that MTX didn't end up being a big deal because everything (except the promo stuff) was earnable in game. I did get that plane hoping it wasn't a sign of things to come (paid carts) but aparrently there were some regions that still didn't even get it.

As it stands, I can still unlock everything in the game now which I am very happy about even if those last championship cart decals might end up being a stretch. I'm a bit confused about the dev times because I thought the emperor velo times were the Dev times but I have been reading elsewhere that the Dev times will be coming in a later update. I hope not because the velo times are already pretty hard (I'm about a quarter of the way through them)

I just have my fingers crossed that they won't have any more promo carts and preferably no more paid DLC carts as I don't Wana spend any more money on the game lol.

Some of these bonus tracks that beenox made have been really gnarly and I sort of dread the difficulty level of a completely beenox made sequel!

Edit, soz didn't see the question, aparrently the codes can be redeemed twice so I thought I'd see if it worked by redeeming it for switch on my Activision account as that then provides the eshop download code. (I have the PS4 version). I did it this way because I didn't wana get your hopes up by giving you the Activision code without knowing it worked first for sure!

So you may remember the last CTR update back in March which introduced the Beenox crate challenge, where players had to locate a hidden Beenox crate hidden within each track in the game. The reward for this challenge was the Iron Checkpoint Crate character, the most stupid and amazing character in the game.

I completed the challenge and smashed every crate. I checked every track multiple times and the crates had all vanished from their locations, but I haven’t unlocked the character.

This is really frustrating as it’s the last character I need to complete the game’s roster, but it won’t unlock. If anyone could help I would very much appreciate it.

@NintendoWiiDS If the challenge was completed, but the Iron Checkpoint Crate character failed to unlock, my instinct says it was a glitch, and that you may be stuck with that result, with that save file. I know that sucks, and it's not a solution, but with the game's structure, and not being able to get the crates again, it sounds like there's no option to trigger the unlock event again, and therefore no fix. I won't claim to know everything, but Activision support's answer may be the same. Beenox does not appear to have a support channel. I've heard of a couple people who have completed things in other games, but they didn't get the reward/unlock, and the game's support rep said there's no fix. (only way to get it at is with a new save file).

If someone else has a fix here, though, that would be great.

@WoomyNNYes Thank you for responding. That truly sucks. I tried contacting Activision support last weekend since Beenox doesn’t have a support channel as you stated, but they notoriously take a long time to respond and the pandemic certainly hasn’t helped matters.

Beenox aren’t releasing any updates for Nitro-Fueled anymore so if the issue is glitch-related, then I guess I’m stuck.

I did notice that Caddicarus on YouTube had a similar problem with Nitros Oxide’s hovercraft not unlocking upon completing the adventure mode but he had it in another video so maybe there’s hope.

Oh well. I suppose I’m unworthy of speeding around the track as a malleable container...
