    Why there are MS-DOS and not MS-TRES?
    P962 1:22.35 A

  • Cas
    Ha, ha... once I wanted to make an operating system and I was going to call it "TRES", but I never really started that. It was a small project for fun :-P

    I have just discovered that 30% of the shoutbox news characters is made of böffs, plus a couple of wheeees and SPARTAs.

Oct 4

  • Shoegazing Leo
    Rayo qué Sparta!

  • dreadnaut
    Happy birthday Akoss! 🎂🎉

    Just to make sure I've not broken the replay upload 😅

  • CTG
    Whee, this is Spartaa!!! ^_^ And böff! :cheesy: Böff reduction: 53B
  • CTG
    Btw late happy 30th birthday, Stunts 1.0!

Oct 9

  • Alan Rotoi
    Stunts is older than some friends of mine xD
  • CTG
    Rotoi: ...and most of the insects are longer than your Indy.

Oct 10

  • Alan Rotoi
    But slower :wink:
  • afullo
    The Indy gets shorter due to relativistic length contraction while approaching c in ultra powergear. Of course, becoming red as standard color.

Oct 11

  • Cas
    But the default colour for the Indy is blue, not red. Which means the Indy is not going away, but approaching!

Oct 17

  • CTG
    This time I won't forget about the deadline. Or I hope so... :cheesy:

  • CTG
    sub-minute böff
    P962 0:59.46
  • CTG
    If P962 is the right car, the winner will be under 1 minute even without 3% bonus.
  • Alan Rotoi
    It will be an unusual scoreboard.

Oct 18

  • CTG
    Rotoi: jajajajajajajajaja!
  • CTG
    So you built a track for yourself, doggy. :cheesy:
  • CTG
    Reminder... ZCT231 - Kowloon « on: September 20, 2020, 18:06:05 » Probably the worst track of the 20s. :roll eyes: Carrera, Kart or IMSA cars for the lazy guys. Indy or any other tricky PG monsters for the others. Beware, it's a dual-way circuit!
  • dreadnaut
    Let's publish those quiet replays and see...
  • Overdrijf
    Nice, Countach surprise. Congratulations to Alan and CTG!
  • Alan Rotoi
    Thanks! It seems the right car was Countach :cheesy: I guessed Dups replay was for main scoreboard. That's why I said about an unusual scoreboard with 3 different cars in podium :cheesy:
  • GTAMan15
    RS-232
  • dreadnaut
    Aaand scoreboard confirmed! Congratulations to CTG, Alan and Overdrijf! 🏆
  • dreadnaut
    And here's the new track, race starting at midnight.
    Carrera 1:22.25
  • GTAMan15
    Oops, it's USB, but whatever It supposed to be RS-232

Oct 19

  • dreadnaut
    Yes, it's a USB logo on purpose. I was worried the pun might be too much this time :tongue:
  • KyLiE
    So we're racing on a huge USB logo eh? Soon enough we will find the best driver... :tongue:
    Carrera 1:12.77
  • GTAMan15
    Of course, but driver for what? USB keyboard/mouse (HID devices) Pendrive (USB Mass Storage) Printer Camera Scanner External ODD External HDD External SSD Or anything else?
  • GTAMan15
    F3943578-01.jpg
  • dreadnaut
    To be pedantic, the one in the picture is a cable with DE-9 connectors. The RS-232 standard does not require a specific connector, and initially used 25 pins.
  • GTAMan15
    I found this by typing RS-232 into Google search
  • Seeker1982
    the replay I just uploaded has the GAR-Flag missing - can smbd change that?
  • dreadnaut
    I miss a good Indy PG race. But this one is not it :undecided:
  • dreadnaut
    Uhm, previous replay seemed broken, so here's a small improvement.

Oct 20

  • dreadnaut
    OK, this one works, I triple checked :-o
    Indy 1:04.58
  • KyLiE
    @GTAMan15, this is Stunts, so an external floppy drive.

  • Cas
    First attempt on this track! :smiley: - By the way, new version of Bliss (2.5.7, including colouring) and a race is almost over in R4K - And hey, it's nice to race RS-232, I mean, ZCT232 :cheesy:
    Carrera 1:20.30
  • GTAMan15
    @Cas, I tried the new Bliss 2.5.7 before everyone knew about the new version
  • GTAMan15
    I attempted to do a quick comparison between all of the four Stunts versions released for DOS (Including 4D Sports Driving)
  • Cas
    @GTAMan15 - Oh, but I posted the news here maybe half an hour after uploading Bliss 2.5.7! You must have been online just then :smiley:

Oct 23

  • Stingray86
    All I can think of when I watch your video @GTAMan15 is 4 player split-screen Stunts!
  • GTAMan15
    Yeah @Stingray86 It's similar, but I'm actually the only player. I recorded the footages with DOSBox video recoder, then in Sony Vegas, I edited all of them into a 5 minutes gameplay video, to have a quick comparison of every Stunts version released to DOS
  • Overdrijf
    Would there be a way to link four machines to the same keyboard and compare the versions as they are controlled exactly the same? :wink:
  • GTAMan15
    @Overdrijf that would be a very good solution, but at this time it doesn't exist (Or I don't know if it exists)
  • Alan Rotoi
    Bluetooth keyboard maybe?
  • GTAMan15
    Yeah, but it woulld be a problem with Stunts v1.0, as the Indy is slower in that version, and it shifts down after any jump
  • afullo
    @Overdrijf some comparison is presented here: http://stunts.kalpen.de/stunts.htm
  • Alan Rotoi
    Differences between Hungary and Argentina :cheesy:

Oct 24

  • Cas
    That girl has learnt good Spanish! I hope our Hungarian friends here can see the subtitles well translated to their language, because it's a nice appreciation. In my opinion, as a (former) traveller, it's not that people in one country are nicer than in another... What happens is that people that have experienced more than one culture tend to be nicer than people who're stuck into just one. Cultural exchange makes us better.

    Initial test...
