Cobra and Mittocs were the gods during the pre riderlean era. I think Joe was the first person to really do media for MXS related stuff. DJ and DDMX were absolute workhorses for content, MXS would be back in 2010 without them! A 10 man gate during the first track top was considered epic back then.

I still miss the Xfire days. Non stop track comps and everyone seemed to know and raced everybody, Fun times.

I remember when I first started playing online Cobra was literally a god. Never made a mistake lap times were very consistent. Only time you had a chance is if some newbie cleaned him out on the start lol. Mittocs was very fast too never saw him online as much as Cobra when I played.

I remember when I thought doing the triple on Alcrest (sp?) on a 125 was impossible.

My earliest days of MXS were playing low key, and jealous of all the content being posted on MXG-HQ forums. So I asked kawasakis to help me make videos in sim lol. Community was much more fun to be around back then!

These were 2 videos (along with all of Mittocs videos) that really sold me on the game.



Kawasakis video because if I remember right it was one of the first videos I ever saw of the game that weren't gameplay videos of people flopping around. I remember watching that video and the shot going over the step up after the start seeing them turn the bars in the air when whipping knowing it wasn't an animation made me awestruck. Ben Dexter's video on Red Bud really shows the physics of the game (that was right when rider lean came out, hence the no torso, and chicken wing elbows when leaning forward :lol:) such as the wheel spin and flat tracking/countersteering, which was UNSEEN in any game before (for me at least).

Then the 2009 dynos came out and you were labeled slow if you couldn't do it because it was so easy!

I just tried it on the 2006 SE YZF and flat landed it so far first try I fell off. When did this lame rider fall off stuff come in? :mrgreen:

Man ^^ That video was awesome! I still remember rocking that kawi model for ever! That was right after rider lean was introduced correct?

This is the video I remember watching and just thinking "Holy crap this game is amazing!" Mace-X made some cool videos back in the day!

TFW you use an 09 crf and still get spanked by a cr125. Waterloo Valley was fun to race on I remember learning a lot of weird lines trying to keep up. Now I keep forgetting if you over jump you can fall off the bike. Before we would just send it 5th gear tapped. Hard to believe how long ago this was.

Mittocs videos were so awesome the slow motion whips and wheeling rhythm sections got me really interested in the game.

Goardy was a cool cat and Yomo I still remember Puma making my first signature for the forums, ha.

The days on MSN, when you would all get 15 minutes to do the best demo you could and then splice them together and watch it back.

I remember very well when DJ uploaded a bike skin to MCM Factory and everyone went crazy in the comments, saying things like:
"This isn't MX Simulator Factory"
But read it by yourself, I also like my comment ...the shit you write when you're 12 :lol:

I remember when I was looking at screenshots, it was like looking back to games of the 90s, but then all of a sudden I saw track releases by suzuki98 and I eventually got interested... I was constantly on the MXS forums checking it out, but I never really cared too much since I was a MvAU nazi all the way... and oh well, I couldn't even ride a straight line in sim :lol: I can't believe it's already more than 10 years...

Gala even eventually made stuff for MXS. I think he did all the skinning on Luiz's KX.

Yeah he skinned Luiz's KX125 and made a sick 2009 Pro Circuit KX250F, his stuff was always sick. Well in general, back then there wasn't much new content, but the few things that got released were made with so much passion and detail, definitely something I don't see very often these days. I'm glad that I saw Sim (and MvAU) in their prime.

10+ years and counting... let's see how many more years we'll waste on computer games :lol:

I browse and post every once and a while. Installed sim again last week and it's more fun now than it was before.

I wish http://www.puremxs.com was still around, but at least I can discover the forest.

The 2009 yz250f is still the fastest bike in the game, idc what anyone tells me.
