I think you might have overkilled it a bit with your item box placements in all four of the non-Map Hell maps - you don't need so many item boxes in the same area. Two or three columns should be more than enough, in my opinion.

I thought I'd try them out, try and figure out what times they might get in Daytona...

And, hoo boy, Storm Station... That last turn with the zoom pipe. I fell off all three times I took it. And how it respawns you when you miss is very punishing.

Also, using the cecho scripts really isn't a good idea when they fill the screen at the start of a race. Given that you are using Lua, I would recommend a HUD hook to post them with double transparency instead.

Posting this as a separate post because of the attachments I'm showing to demonstrate how it can be, along with my Lua code suggestion:

Code:
local ENDTEXTTIME = 26 + (TICRATE * 7) //This makes the text disappear along with the 'GO' - but could be adjusted. I wouldn't make this more than TICRATE * 10 though.

hud.add(function(v)
	local flags = V_HUDTRANSHALF //You can replace this with V_50TRANS if you want the warning to show during the intro
	if leveltime > ENDTEXTTIME return end
	if gamemap == 975 then //Ante Station Zone
		v.drawString(160, 60, "DISCLAIMER:", flags, "center")
		v.drawString(160, 70, "THIS MAP USES VISUAL EFFECTS", flags, "center")
		v.drawString(160, 80, "THAT DO NOT DISPLAY IN OPENGL MODE", flags, "center")
		v.drawString(160, 130, "START/CONTINUE THE RACE AT SONIC'S RISK", flags, "center")
	elseif gamemap == 978 then //Storm Station Zone
		v.drawString(160, 60, "IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT YOU LEARN", flags, "center")
		v.drawString(160, 70, "HOW TO DRIFT STORAGE IN ORDER", flags, "center")
		v.drawString(160, 80, "TO RACE ON THIS STAGE", flags, "center")
		v.drawString(160, 100, "REMEMBER TO HOLD [DRIFT]", flags, "center")
		v.drawString(160, 110, "WHEN FLYING OFF OF SPRINGS", flags, "center")
		v.drawString(160, 120, "YOU COULD EVEN STEER YOURSELF MID-AIR", flags, "center")
		v.drawString(160, 130, "THIS WAY", flags, "center")
	end
end)

The attached screenshots show how the game would display it in both of those cases.

If you want the warning to appear for new joiners, then it's a little more complex, but this allows the warning to show at the start of a race.

I've tried it both with and without OpenGL, and the effect without it is negligible. Fakery Way is a much bigger deal than this.

I'd still recommend playing this track without OpenGL, because it's a very neat effect. But the warning seems unneeded.
