How did you even do that!? I always thought you got into that position by accident in your offsled track xD

Impressive and hilarious. Shows how much there is still to do in offsled! Also 900 views and 170 likes? You're going viral 8D

First track to go viral on reddit since EoLR in 2010. 6 years later! Very nice.

EDIT: some highlights from skype convo
Spoiler:

[2/14/16, 9:53:57 AM] Opal Rider: Interestingly enough. Everyone seems to like the drum fill at the end more than the entire rest of the track, and that was probably the easiest part to make. :P
[2/14/16, 9:55:55 AM] Marco W.: guys I think conun won this track jam, none of our track jam videos are getting 4000 upvotes on reddit anytime soon
[2/14/16, 10:53:07 AM] Ben Harvey: inb4 not one persons signs up
[2/14/16, 11:06:58 AM] Lukas: CONUN HOW DO YOU GET THIS REDDIT ACTIVITY...IVE BEEN TRYING TO ACHIEVE THAT FOR YEARS
[2/14/16, 11:07:09 AM] David Lu: step 1: make an accessible track
[2/14/16, 11:13:37 AM] David Lu: as a community, we need to understand how to welcome newcomers better, and understand why anyone would join in the first place, before taking action
[2/14/16, 11:14:45 AM] Ben Harvey: I mean, no standard quirk has ever gone viral so there's at least a part of it
[2/14/16, 11:15:06 AM] Ben Harvey: jam, eden 2, handlebars. none of those went viral
[2/14/16, 11:15:16 AM] Lukas: true
[2/14/16, 11:16:50 AM] Ben Harvey: My guesses would be
1) novelty. something that people haven't seen before
2) easy to understand. Doesn't just look like a bunch of lines flying by, but has something that people who have never played Line Rider can make sense of
3) catches your attention in the first 30 seconds
[2/14/16, 11:17:21 AM] Ben Harvey: also humor works well if you're targeting reddit
[2/14/16, 11:17:31 AM] David Lu: i dont like gimmicks but i think that was a factor in my track
[2/14/16, 11:17:38 AM] Ben Harvey: that's what tipped this one over the edge IMO, it's hilarious even for someone who doesn;t play LR
[2/14/16, 11:17:51 AM] Lukas: true rabid
[2/14/16, 11:18:01 AM] Ben Harvey: we've never been good at making tracks that are funny to people outside of the community
[2/14/16, 11:18:05 AM] Ben Harvey: reddit loves humor though
[2/14/16, 11:18:59 AM] Ben Harvey: I still don't think reddit is a good way to get people interested in the community though. reddit is a content consumption site, not a content creation site. People go there to look at things, not to join communities other than reddit and make art
[2/14/16, 11:19:43 AM] Ben Harvey: notice how we have hundreds of visitors but nobody has signed up
[2/14/16, 11:19:53 AM] Ben Harvey: same exact thing happened for EoLR when it went viral
[2/14/16, 11:37:00 AM] Lukas: it really Bugs me that noone is registering
[2/14/16, 11:37:10 AM] Ben Harvey: get used to it
[2/14/16, 11:37:37 AM] Ben Harvey: GJ conun though on the wake up call. offsled track made in 2 days goes viral, puts us all in perspective haha
[2/14/16, 11:37:57 AM] Lukas: haha yea never thought about this way7
[2/14/16, 11:38:08 AM] Lukas: about it *

Some highlights from reddit:
Spoiler:
[–]JustDudeStuff 838 points 9 hours ago
That guy must have fucking hated that song so much by the time he was done he probably had to listen to around 1000 minutes of "OH BLACK BETTY BAM-BA-LAM"

[–]conundrumer 40 points 2 hours ago
can confirm. source: made that track. also a music producer

[–]buscemi100mm 6 points 2 hours ago
Hey man you did a pretty good job! The drum fill part was the best
[–]conundrumer 101 points 2 hours ago*
Hey guys. I made this track for the first WRTL Track Jam. It was made in a span of 48 hours. (there's also /r/linerider)
Here's the save for this track
I'm also working on a new version of Line Rider (which is also backwards compatible). Check it out. Source code/bug reports
EDIT: just hacked in automatic loading, new save link
[–]Rolid[S] 1025 points 8 hours ago
also wot

[–]Purtle 178 points 3 hours ago*
stealing top comment from op to inform others about line riders long history and community
The game has progressed quite a bit since back when most of you remember it. The game has a lot more depth than what most people experienced from the game.
This is an iconic collaboration that can help take you through the many different discoveries and progress that have been had https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T-69RwGDv8g
http://iridethelines.forumotion.com/ and /r/linerider are the two remaining forums/places that have activity. Theres so many legendary tracks that have been made over the years. I recommend checking out the featured movies section on the iridethelines forum
edit: I can understand how some people may not find the video I linked to be appealing since theres a lot going on. For those people I recommend looking at "scenery" tracks
Check out some of these for example:

[–]DuoThree 22 points 2 hours ago
Is it the core game mechanics that have changed or is it mostly just the meta and techniques that have advanced?
permalinksaveparentreportgive goldreply

[–]Purtle 30 points 2 hours ago*
new techniques discovered etc. People also decorate/scene tracks that are absolutely beautiful. Look for some examples in the featured movies section
edit: here are some examples

[–]SkyDerpz 18 points 2 hours ago
Holy shit the DNA string one is awesome !

[–]flatcoke [score hidden] 53 minutes ago
anyone can explain how did he do the "invert" scene?

[–]Purtle [score hidden] 17 minutes ago
invert scene? do you mean the background being all black? If so. Its because he COVERED the entire screen in that point in scenery lines. (yes that takes as long/as much work as it sounds. A crapload)

[–]Orthuss [score hidden] 11 minutes ago
Line Rider saves can't really handle too many lines, so what a lot of scenery track makers did is to "split" the track. To prevent lag, they'd make a new save file where they erase scenery lines from the beginning and add more lines at the end. Then they'd record each save individually and splice them together when editing. Something like this.
That particular moment is just a split with some added effects. So we have a save with the beginning of the track and the inverted section, and then we have a save with the non-inverted section and the end of the track. And then the two clips are edited together later on.

[–]ArtofAngels 9 points an hour ago
You really love Line Rider.

[–]Purtle [score hidden] 26 minutes ago
Yes I do. I also love the community and friendships I've made through the game. Known some of them longer than almost any other friends I know

[–]ArtofAngels [score hidden] 23 minutes ago
That's awesome.

[–]Purtle [score hidden] 20 minutes ago
yup, now that I think about it's made quite an impact on my life. I know its changed many others (went into art careers/etc after loving doing scenery and things)

[–]crypticfreak 2 points an hour ago
Holy shit. This is so cool.
[–]alexxerth 299 points 10 hours ago
Wow, I've seen some automated tracks before, but nothing at this level. That was freaking incredible.

[–]blolfighter 83 points 5 hours ago
How about this one?
[BREATHTAKING SILENCE LINK]

[–]Thrannn 8 points 3 hours ago
ohmygod this is so beautiful... just the art alone would be stunning.. then the fact that he made this in a game.. and the fact that the trails still work..
this is some next level shit.. he deserves way more views than that!!
[–]Gridoverflow 59 points 8 hours ago
Wow, this game is 10 years old already. Techdawg is still the best though. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fTnT66LGrdY

[–]KingBloops 9 points 6 hours ago
As soon as I heard the music, I remembered the video. And I hadn't even thought about Line Rider in years.

[–]Hazzmando 4 points 6 hours ago
Techdawg was/is the shit.

[–]zCourge_iDX 2 points 3 hours ago
Ah this fucking video again. The song is so damn chill. Always loved watching that one in particular.
[–]okijhnub 39 points 7 hours ago
O_O
The same creator made a synchronised animation in the game.

[–]nolmurph97 10 points 3 hours ago
That was impressive but a little anticlimactic

[–]Shuawuzheer 4 points 2 hours ago
The creator of this one was Conundrummer, and the one you posted was made by a person named Sheldon with help from Lukking.
Here's another animated track by a guy named SethComposerGuy: https://youtu.be/8EMw4BncA1g?t=3m17s and another by yours truly: https://youtu.be/D6AVKFc4O98?t=1m46s

[–]Paraless 5 points an hour ago
Wow, the QR code in the video (2:13) actually works! Takes you to http://iridethelines.forumotion.com
[–]engineertime 11 points 9 hours ago
Ah man I loved how the movements were on beat.

[–]IamAbc 40 points 4 hours ago*
Yep... I believe that's what he was going for.

[–]PickleChomp 3 points 4 hours ago
And that little arm leg swinging dance he was doing.
[–]handforpleasure 2 points 6 hours ago
I'm so confused. How is this made?!

[–]renvi 2 points 6 hours ago
Wow, I haven't thought about Line Rider since...high school? This brought back so many memories of my friends and I messing around on that. This was a 1000x better than anything we ever came up with, though!

[–]Sirromnad 2 points 3 hours ago
that was surprisingly funny.

[–]norapeformethankyou 2 points 2 hours ago
I used to play this game all the time back when I was working over night, waiting for the sun to get out of my window. Did a couple on YouTube. This one was probably my best, but nothing to this level. It's hard to believe that it was eight years ago.

I can't even fathom how long this would have taken to make but, whatever it was, it was worth it.

[–]pennypinball 1 point 8 hours ago
i realized how incredible this was when he kept the rider on his hands and legs the whole time. usually he falls on his back and never stands on a limb again

[–]CrouchingAndHidden 1 point 8 hours ago
Fucking incredible. Thought I would never see another line rider video and instead I see the best one I have ever seen.
[–]Simpfally 1 point 4 hours ago
I love how all the great videos about line riders are still with the very basic version.

EDIT: I'll put this crap in a spoiler lol
Spoiler:
[2/14/16, 12:22:14 PM] Ben Harvey: typed up a big post about myself and line rider, reddit autodeleted it
[2/14/16, 12:22:19 PM] Ben Harvey: fucking typical
[2/14/16, 12:22:23 PM] David Lu: aw man
[2/14/16, 12:22:30 PM] David Lu: for what reason
[2/14/16, 12:22:34 PM] Ben Harvey: didn;t give one
[2/14/16, 12:22:36 PM] Ben Harvey: no idea
[2/14/16, 12:22:54 PM] Ben Harvey: maybe the fact that I said the phrase "join our community"
[2/14/16, 12:23:10 PM] Ben Harvey: I literally hit post and it wiped my post and didn't post it
[2/14/16, 12:23:14 PM] Ben Harvey: no reason
[2/14/16, 12:23:30 PM] Ben Harvey: THIS IS WHY I CAN'T STAND REDDIT
I am so pissed off about this.

Basically I talked about myself a little (admin on wrtl, been playing for 9 years since high school and it remains my main artistic passion), talked about how for me line rider is much more than a silly little game but a unique art medium, talked about how this going viral makes me super happy because most of what I do is work to generate activity and tracks and discussion on here and how we were nearly dead in 2014, and encouraged people to check out our community (basically i said if one person who saw this track joined our little corner of the world that would be a huge victory) I didn't include any links and framed it as highly personal, not as an ad.

This is like the 3rd time I've made a post like this and reddit didn't let me post it because it's "spam." Though this time it just wiped my post when I hit the send button without any reason at all, so maybe something else I said tripped some sort of filter. This is why I hate reddit.


Apparently it reappeared after about half an hour. I got no confirmation of any kind when I posted it and then couldn't find it on my own profile. Maybe it had to be moderated and then it went through? In any case, false alarm I guess. sorry for cluttering up this thread.

more views on any track since ~2008, probably more views than all track from our community combined since like 2012. Pretty surreal.

This is like, the best thing since cheesecake!

Such a cool concept and it's just perfectly executed. This will be a semi-daily watch for me, it's just so much fun to see Bosh wiggle his arms and feet like that. Damn, who knew off-sled could be THIS awesome. I certainly didn't. Kudo's to you sir.

The fact that he's staring at you the whole time gets me.

I had this exact same idea for the intro of MT3 to make Bosh dance (in reference to Guardians of the Galaxy) but obviously yours is better in that it is much more realized. Not to say I came up with the idea first, after reading your thread back from 2012. You made an actual track out of it and demonstrated more control over the contact points, such as how you're able to move his arms and feet and sync it so well to that ridiculous song, then ofc that epic moment when you make him stand. Mine was more jumping around and moving his legs and hands (though now that I watch it, it actually syncs really well with the music I chose xD)

You and I have similar ideas. You just are able to make them better Suspicious

You did a really good job on this. It deserves all those views it got and is continuing to get.
