The Twisted Metal Black: Online Bible

A video that's over a decade in the making, because it literally contains over a decade worth of information from TMBO veterans past and present.

A big thank you to everyone involved in the project.

Use this video to brush up on your skills or you improve your already excessive ownage skills.




Screen captures of important information. This will save you the trouble of pausing every few seconds in the video
(I had to make it short or the video would of easily been an hour long).

Just want to say im very proud of this project lol. We had discussed doing this forever, and actually making the 30 minute video took many hours and about 1.5 years worth of time.

DarkForce did a great job in creative elements and piecing it all together cohesively to make a vision a reality. Also love the music choices (KG) and the credits and artwork (Orion).

There are some maneuvers and things not covered in this video obviously we can't have it all... one big omission namely being LAG and how to cope/understand/overcome/exploit that. That would've been a whole nother can of worms. And maybe sometime in the future that can be done but for now this is what we have.

This video is also intended to show tactics for the higher/highest level of play, there is definitely more combos to be had but this was the basis. Some of these tactics will take a lot of practice, timing of gas can/sat + freeze for example is crucial. RK tricks as well, very tough.

Thanks for watching guys.

Wow, good job guys! I tried to do some of these "dodging" techniques in TMX but I kind of just explode before I can even turn.

Though it is mentioned in the overall stats for Darkside, the T-Bone slide should be explained too.

I know it's sorta self explanatory but, it is difficult to land as well because you have to line your door up square (90 degree) to the opponent. In the days before people realized how to really counter Darkside, it was a devastating maneuver.

I always loved seeing that "T Bone Slide Bonus" appear at the top of my screen. Very satisfying.

It's also really strange at the end of the video, there is actual voice chat going on. Last I played it was

GG!  Roll Eyes

Fucking ancient indeed....

Hey! Not everyone knows how to use DS properly, so any tips you or anyone else adds in here are for sure appreciated.

Anyway, that T-Slide is a scary SP to get hit by indeed. It also doesn't help matters that you can randomly lose 90 points of health. Extra scary if you're using an average/low armored vehicle like RK or Mr. Grimm and you get hit by the T-Slide... yep, can ruin some matches and even someones entire night, lol.

Voice? We've been doing it for maybe 2 and a half years?
Still some stragglers that don't want to or can't Skype Sad

This is too awesome. Must share. The amount of depth is huge. The dodging is so good. I hate these undodgable specials in TMX, which is Meta Wagon and Vermin. Meat Wagon's special can be dodged offline but not online. They must had buffed it. I never knew the ghost missile can be dodged, I always try to outrun it. Axel shockwave is broken.

Spec missile is not a good idea to dodge no lol. Unless feel like badass and know you dont have enough turbo to outrun. It is possible!

Axel shockwave is indeed OP. Huge blast radius and 22 damage...  Roll Eyes

Heh. I thought you guys knew about that. Like I said in the early days, if I froze you playing Darkside you'd get T-Boned pretty much every time. It got harder to land as more people learned how to dodge freezes and break out quickly. It really had to be at 90 degree angle from her doors to opponent. It was also very cool to land any DS SP when someone was up against a wall. Ouch.

I knew you guys could chat over Skype and stuff playing TMBO for awhile. It's just that the last time I played it was chat only. Just strange to hear voices while gameplay is going on.


"Try shielding!"

Drive around a corner!

Phew, I'm very impressed by this video, and all of the info supplied. It definitely makes it appear less daunting to get back into TM:B online. I haven't tried playing it since the servers went down, and neither have I had the desire to get back into it since then, but I'll admit this does get me a little giddy. I might have to get around to reconfiguring X-Link so you guys can whip my ass. Shocked

Thanks for watching the video.

X-Link? We no longer use that trash. It became too unreliable and it was a pain to ping everyone, or there was some other issue that randomly happened every game night.

I started reading this thread back in July on some off-time and wanted to commend you guys for it. I must've scrolled too fast because I accidently missed that there was a video up top, but what a great video to watch. 5 stars. You guys were at times impossible to hit. I can clearly see why.

I'm also jealous of your HD quality

nice work
