    I know those displays that did not show the right number. I had those too. OK. I will just state the things I know for a fact: 1 - Officially, the fastest speed that a 80386DX was made for was 40MHz. 2 - My 80386DX would run at 60MHz. The display was configured to display that speed when the turbo was on because the CPU was going to run at that speed. Nobody had used that box before. My CPU was the first one to use it. When I bought it, it was advertised as a 386 60/40. 3 - Yes, the turbo button was designed to allow slower speeds (not faster) for compatibility with older software. This could mean that the natural speed of my CPU was 60MHz or that it was overclocked. I don't know that part, but it would run at 60MHz. I know that for a fact, mate

    By the way: a new race has started at Race For Kicks :smiley: http://r4k.fnhost.org

    Do you remember if it was a Commodore?
  • Cas
    And here's the forum thread: 2019-7 (Google sucks) @Marco - Ha, ha! I do own a Commodore 64, as a matter of fact. And currently, I'm working on a hobby computer project based on a Z80B (running at 6MHz). It's a lot of fun :smiley:
  • Marco
    I'm not joking. Commodore did several PC and one of them was a 386 named PC 60/40 . I'm quite sure that you had one of them or a clone of that PC. pagina.php?ccc=56&pag=027.jpg

    It was a 386 at 16Mhz . With turbo disable, 8 mhz. I'm a passionate dos gamer, I have more than 10 dos PC starting from the first IBM PC 4.7mhz to the Pentium 200 mhz .. passing from 8086, 286, 386, 486 , everything. I know what it means to play with original hw and i love it much more than dosbox.But When i have suggested to Stan to play on a modern PC, I was simply refering to this championship . It has no sense to play this championship with a 286 because it is for real too slow and you have also to continuosly port the files from the 286 to the modern pc to be uploaded ... a 386 is still slow too. There s need at least of a 486dx to play stunts at its best with max details. So I'm the first one to agree that you can play Stunts for your passion with a 286 or 386 but I thought that was a good suggestion for Stan to try dos box too. Believe me Cas, if you would have a 386 or a 486 as I have, you would play anyway on dosbox the Zak championship if you don t want to become crazy or lose your eyes with old 60hz monitor refresh :smiley:
  • Cas
    Oh! I didn't know about that Commodore. I knew about the 64 and 128 and then the Amiga 500. No, my PC was a clone (not a true IBM), but it contained a 80386 microprocessor which, I assume, must have been the 40MHz one, but for some reason, was running at 60MHz. I would like to find out more about it now, but it's very hard to tell. It's been too long ago. And yes, a 286 is noticeably slow for Stunts. On "my" 386, however, I don't remember having ever noticed a slowdown. Maybe it was overclocked after all! But yes, CRT screens weren't good. That's true. Oh, I absolutely love DOS computers. Real hardware access. The real reason I'd still use DOSBox for the tournament is not the speed, but the fact that otherwise, I don't know how I'd send the replay file! I've been seriously considering to separate my "computing" from my "interneting", because new computers are no longer good for most of the things I do (except surfing the web).

    Lionel Richie led The Commodores for a plenty of years...

    The way to upload the file is that you must have a floppy drive on your modern pc and then port the files from the 286 to the modern pc by floppies. I did it. Yes you remember that was good a 386 but it was not good as a better pc. The same for indycar racing, a 486 dx2 is good but a pentium 200mhz is better. Check my fb page Marco Plays Dos Games , yesterday i have done a live video playing indycar on origonal hw By the way, you have never had a 386 60 mhz advertised, believe me :smiley:)

  • Stan 286XT
    The system has cancelled 2 time my replay boooH!!!ù I don't have a lot of time!!!
  • dreadnaut
    @Stan, you replays were deleted because you wrote the wrong penalty time. The "penalty time" IS NOT the "car bonus" you find on the track page. Leave ZERO penalty time, unless Stunts tells you otherwise. Please re-upload the same replay without penalty. 🔵 I tuoi replay sono stati cancellati perché avevano il "Penalty time" sbagliato. Il "Penalty time" è diverso dal "Car bonus" che trovi in fondo alla pagina del tracciato. Lascia il "Penalty time" vuoto, usalo solo se Stunts ti mostra "Penalty time" alla fine della corsa. Ri-carica i tuoi replay senza "Penalty time"!

    I'm getting a strange message when trying to post a replay. It says "Sorry, you didn't submit a replay. Try again". And I try again and I AM submitting a replay and they file is OK. I don't know what to do :S

  • dreadnaut
    Mmmh, something odd is afoot: same problem on the RPLInfo page 🤔 There seems to be an issue with the temporary directory for uploads, which is outside what I can touch. Let's see if it gets fixed by the hosting...
  • Heretic
