When you crash you get just enough penalty points to make sure crashing does not give you an advantage. Or so I thought. It turns out there is a way the get an advantage by crashing.
Here is how it works. When you pass a checkpoint and crash in the same turn, you are set back to your original position with zero speed. Now if you needed to turn back anyway, in some cases you get a one turn advantage.
As far as I can tell only Artezha and Downloader figured this out. Cheers for them for being so inventive! :-) However, I do not think this should be part of the game and as of now you get an extra penalty point when you pass a checkpoint and crash in the same turn. I hope this solves this issue.
As a result of this change, I updated all scores that (purposefully or accidentally) used this trick. One penalty point was added to all these scores. For the top scores this results in these changes: Artezha loses two records (Il Forme and Shortcuts), and Downloader loses one record (Gone in Sixty Seconds).
I realized today that Twister had a (best possible) solution that involves an unintended shortcut. Normally I would just leave it that way, but in this case I felt it was better to make a small change to the track. That is why I moved the red checkpoint slightly to the right. You can still use the shortcut solution, but it will no longer be the best solution possible.
Unfortunately, this meant that the 53.644 scores of Przemek Poland, Downloader and Petrov were no longer valid. Those scores have been removed. The 53.644 score of SpacemanSpiff still stands, since he obtained the score without the shortcut.
Przemek Poland, Downloader and Petrov, please don't take this too hard. You are some of the best players in the game, and I hope you'll give the track another go. The 53.644 score is beatable!

Tip for Opera users: the game does work properly in Opera 11!
You can now play against computer players. They can also give you a race demo.
Parts of the game logic were rewritten. For this reason all submitted score were revalidated. Some scores were updated (finish fraction was not correct) and some scores were removed (failed crash detection when passing a wall closely). In any case, everything should work correctly from now on. Sorry for any inconvenience.
The AI players are nearly finished, but they exposed a bug in the game logic, which will take a bit of time to fix properly. AI is coming soon though. I'm also working on some new tracks.
Added 'scores' page, 'how to play' page and 'about' page below the game. Improved keyboard support. Added player selection history.
Added keyboard support.
The first version of Vector Racer is available online.
I'm still working on the following features:
scores overview, AI players,
keyboard support, more tracks.
Currently, the game works in all major browsers except in Opera. The Opera browser crashes after some time, and I haven't yet been able to find out why. Suggestions are welcome at firstname.lastname@example.org.
