Speedhacking

Post by GimiGlider » Sun Nov 06, 2011 8:23 am

[bug=Speedhacking][bugdesc]Short description of bug: A bug that can help you go up to extreme speeds. Only works on certain default aircraft, and like this:
Step 1: Put your afterburners on with full throttle.
Step 2: Take off
Step 3: Make sure your nose is pointed 40 degrees up (so that you won't smash into the ground)
Step 4: Put your mouse on t he top right of the screen
Step 5: Press "T"
Step 6: Wait for the aircraft to gain speed
proof:

Note: Some aircraft take a longer time than others to speed up.

Addon used [if any]:
[Default] F-2, F-16, F-18(all types), Rafale,
System specifications of PC on which bug was confirmed [in following format]:
CPU: 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
graphics card:GMA X3100 (I think that is it...)
RAM: 2 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM (don't know if that is right, but my friend, who has a macbook pro, can also perform this.)
OS: Mac OSX Snow Leopard Version 10.6.8[/bugdesc][/bug]

It's not hacking, it's Raptoring.

However, you haven't quite got the proper technique :)

Available in any version of YS, no matter the OS or specs.

I just tested, and it would seem that Raptoring has been possible since the very first release of YS. At this point, I'm tempted to say it's almost more of a feature than a bug.

Dr Yamakawa knows about it. I've emailed him about it once or twice and I think he responded to those. Pretty sure he doesn't care; it's probably something to do with the core of how the game works given how long it's been around, and I doubt he wants to rework that.

In some planes with no friction you can move your mouse down and right without trim and shed speed, while up and right still performs the speed glitch.
EDIT: In the missile I released there's another form of this glitch, when you're out of fuel you can slam on trim and up elevator to circle, making your speed climb to around 2500kts with no engine power.

Does this only work if you are flying with your mouse or something?

But not keyboard, though? I don't use my mouse to fly, so I don't know what effect putting the mouse at the top corner would have.

It will work with anything. When I raptor, I have full down trim, full down elevator, full left roll/aileron, and full right rudder. There are different ways to raptor and some planes require different methods, but the style I am using works with most combat planes I've flown.

It works with any aircraft in the game with enough thrust.

I finally figured it out. That might be helpful for map developers, but I prefer my trusty, old hyper raptor. :lol:

Steps:

1. Trim full-down
2. Barrel roll
3. Yay

Custom Aircraft:

Works best for f-16, f-2, rafale, viggen, f-18e.

Philster's method is the one that I use... I find it makes you accelerate faster than your method. Hitting Mach 70 has never been easier :lol:
