  • Mark L. Rivers
    Well CTG, thanks for your esteem, but I don't think to be at level you think, above all with this car... This is my best time, and in this moment I wouldn't know where I can improve... I'll try to examinate one more time the race, but... it's very difficult that I'll send another time. Anyway, I repeat, I'm very satisfied of my race, independently from final position. :wink:
  • CTG
    Wow, very nice time! I'm thinking on redriving the track soon as the replay analysis says I have still 1 second left in my replay (compared to my elder replay's section times).
  • CTG
    I'm surprised about Bonzai Joe: it seems he forgot to take a revenge on ZCT66. :cheesy:
  • Chulk
    Unfinished replay of potencial high 2:13. Actual time is 2:15.45 but I won't give up so easily...
  • CTG
    Really nice. I wonder if I'll be able to do 2:12 or not. My imaginary goal is 2:12.50. My hypersecret goal is 2:10.00. :grin:
  • Chulk
    2:13.85 completed but not sent as goal is doing about 2:12.50 as well. 2:10 or even 2:11 is impossible for me. Good luck with it!
  • CTG
    Damn, everything is against my improvement. Terrible pain in right hand+arm, almost dead down cursor arrow, electricity problems for tomorrow... 10% that I'll improve, not more.
  • CTG
    My right palm and fingers are in ruins, my final time was sent in hidden mode, but just a minor improvement. :-S

Jun 2

  • CTG
    Only 20 hours left to Mark's victory...
  • CTG
    (Or Chulk's. Or Dottore's.)
  • CTG
    Or mine. :cheesy:
  • CTG
    Do you know what is really incredible? Mark was leading for 13 days with 2:32.75. Almost 20 seconds worse than current podiumers...
  • Mark L. Rivers
    I think I'll 4th, and I'm very satisfied if this will be my result. :smiley:
  • Mark L. Rivers
    Sorry, I sent wrongly CTRACK-A replay.... This is correct replay... Well, it wouldn't be very bad... :cheesy:
  • CTG
    No electric problems. :smiley: Maybe they postponed it.
  • CTG
    39.50 would be really cool. Even for a single lap on ZCT75.
  • CTG
    I'm still afraid of the opponents so I don't publish my final time. Improvement is rather mediorce, not minor.
  • CTG
    It's time to tell the truth... :smiley:
  • Krys TOFF
    New replay from scratch quickly made, no time to optimize any trick or perform powergear turns...
  • CTG
    Let me guess: Zak won't update the result of this ass kicking race in the following 4391252395 hours.
  • CTG
    Or if he does then it means I could't win...

Jun 3

  • Please read about the possible future of ZakStunts and tell your opinion:
    http://stunts.mine.nu/forum/index.php?topic=1970.0
  • CTG
    seems to be official :cheesy:
  • Krys TOFF
    Demo replay sent to check if online form can accept crash replays without problem.
  • Krys TOFF
    Seems to work fine. :-D
  • Krys TOFF
    Oh, and nice battle in the end of Z75 and congrats to CTG. It was long and hard to maximize such a long race.
  • CTG
    Amazing replays in TOP3! Really nice first lap from Chulk, well-done! Thanks to Chulk, Mark and Dottore for being active and fast opponents, it's always good to win after a great fight! Now let's see that damned LM002: if Acura is my weapon then we can say LM002 is one of my weakest points.
  • CTG
    Another bug... :-S Stunts doesn't let me save the replay.
  • AbuRaf70
    Contratulations CTG, Chulk and Mark...!!!
  • CTG
    Replay saving problem - it works only under DOSBox (WTF). Okay, this one is just a minor problem. BUT! Another one: replay stops random time after the crash (my first weak try: 1:09.80 at the crash, 1:13.85 when replay stopped), not the usual 1 second. Rules have to be changed somehow.
  • CTG
    Replay saving problem disappeared when I (and Skid) raced with IMSA car. Strange. DOSBx works too bad on this notebook, I would hate to race under that.
  • CTG
    Second problem is cancelled, I was just stupid. :smiley: But the first one is really bad.
  • CTG
    Not a good rule. :-S Skid will always ride the same lap, there is only one possible point to crash him for faster drivers.
  • CTG
    Race would be a lot more interesting if we can use Audi and Skid would be with Ferrari. Or any other combinations.
  • AbuRaf70
    Very it adjoins and diverting the Z76, Krys... Congratulations...!!!!
  • CTG
    It's impossible to catch Skid earlier than he comes down from the loop. Winning time prediction: 1:08.10.
  • Duplode
    Now that's a hell of a weird ruleset, Krys ;-)! But no excuses for me this time, joined up!
  • Chulk
    First try. Congratulations CTG & Mark for the podium!
  • Mark L. Rivers
    CTG & Chulk: congratulations for your times! I'll see later your replays. And congratulations to Krys for Z75 track&rule: very nice! I'm really happy for this 3rd podium in a row in this contest! About next race... sure a nice and original rule, but it almost sure I'won't be on a podium this time, I think you know why... Anyway, I should have time to try it only tomorrow...
  • Krys TOFF
    1st try with manual gears. Damn, CTG's time is good !
  • CTG
    DOSBox fucked up my Stunts... :-S

Jun 4

  • Krys TOFF
    Sharp battle behind CTG between Chulk, Aburaf and me. And Duplode is not so far behind. Good, I like sharp races. ;-)
  • CTG
    I still say it would be better with other cars, as you can't catch him before the end of the loop.
  • CTG
    Btw only 109 hours left from USC!
  • Mark L. Rivers
    Really a very nice rule.. :wink:
  • CTG
    Mark: you have to race to longer lap, no shortcuts!!!
  • CTG
    We have to clarify the rules more. Two tiles turnback is allowed? What about penalty time?
  • CTG
    I ask Zak and/or Krys to check Mark's replay validity OR to tell what is allowed as shortcut and what isn't.
  • Duplode
    I was to ask for rule clarification too - but Mark and CTG beat me to it... setting a couple checpoints (or not at all!) would solve any doubts.
  • Mark L. Rivers
    Rules don't talk about penalty time (I think it is calculated only if a racer reach the finish line), shortcuts or which trackway is necessary to choose except for the fork-road at the beginning. The goal of the race is to crash the opponent's car and I crashed it. So... what would you want from me? :grin:
  • Mark L. Rivers
    Anyway, if I'm wrong, I'm sure ready to re-drive my race. Waiting for Administration Race judgement...
  • CTG
    I suggest to clarify the rules AND restart the LTB counting.

Jun 5

  • CTG
    If everything is allowed then here is a replay when I turned back on the first corkscrew, crossed the finish line from the other direction and faced Skid... I think demo replay is the ethalone, Mark's and my new replay should be invalid. Krys?
  • Duplode
    My take on rulings - I'd foresee two possibilities: 1. No shortcuts - i.e, no driving in such a way which would give penalty to the driver, and no turn-back-at-first-corkscrew racing either (I agree with CTG in that being a bad idea). 2. A checkpoint just after the second tunnel/just before the paths rejoin. From there *everything* is allowed (That is what can be infered from the original rules, since "follow the pink path" can obly be applied until the tracks rejoin). For me, I'd be fine with either...
  • CTG
    Krys defined the right way, I correct my time.
  • Duplode
    Slight teaser: my last replay in CTG's way ;-)
  • CTG
    Duplode: Krys confirmed that pink way is valid, use that.
  • CTG
    Zak: please delete 52.85, my current valid lap is 54.95.
  • CTG
    Another thing: ZCT75 podium menu point still displays ZCT74 podium. I want to hear our beautiful and sad Hungarian anthem. :smiley:
  • CTG
    http://stunts.mine.nu/unskilled/hungary.mid , better version that the usual hungarian anthem midi files.
  • Duplode
    CTG: Alright, I was only teasing... :-D!
  • Mark L. Rivers
    So I was right... My current replay follows the pink way... :wink: Well, clarifying rules had become necessary, but it's a pity.. Now all have, after only 2 days, an "on-line" help to know the fastest way to follow, so: 1) millisecond war and 2) not a big fun having to individuate how to avail the many bank-roads situated on the track...
  • CTG
    I'm a bit happier with these rules than with demo replay. If you follow the road, the earliest catch of Skid could happen at the end of the loop (Skid just comes down, you cut it and crash) with a time between 1:08.00 and 1:08.50 with mediorce driving too. Now we have to race perfectly in the first part; small but effective, speed increasing jumps in the offroad section and a nice inner loopcut without touching the grass just before the collision.
  • Mark L. Rivers
    Wow, it was not easy but I established a new leading time... that soon will be beated by CTG... :wink: Meanwhile, another clarifying about Z76 rules is necessary? If you crash your car just 2-3 seconds before you encounter the opponent?s car (which is coming in front of you), there?s the possibility that opponent?s car will crash against your car even if your car is yet crashed. In this way the opponent?s car crashes a bit after (than it would crash if you don?t crash before your car), but the replay will result 2-3 seconds shorter. Is that a valid replay? (Btw, my current replay is not so). If it?s not, I think it?s necessary that Administration Race checks quite soon every replay sent, so not to affect LTB.
  • CTG
    Mark: the case you mentioned is absolutely invalid.
  • CTG
    :cheesy:

Jun 6

  • Duplode
    Now Mark's comment lead me to yet another question... is replay time supposed to be counted until the instant of crash or till the tape stops (which sometimes can be changed by pressing ESC). I have the impression of having seen both behaviours at the online updating system with my replays...
  • Chulk
    As I said last race was great, I have to say I hate the current one. Anyway, thanks Krys for giving us track after track!
  • Chulk
    New reaplay. I'mk almost there though last 5 seconds are always the hardest part.
  • Chulk
    Do I have to let the whole 4 seconds pass after the crash or do I have to stop it 1 second after?
  • Chulk
    Going to Gy?ngy?s...
  • Krys TOFF
    Answer to Mark : goal is to crash on Skid, not to crash and let Skid hit you after. So, to be valid, a replay must be stopped by your crash on Skid.
  • CTG
    Duplode: valid crashing replay stops 4 seconds after the crash.
  • CTG
    ZAAK!!! Please remove my 52.xx replay from the scoreboard!!! It's invalid! Böff reduction: 22B
  • Duplode
    Ah, now its clear - replay ends at +4 and is counted with +3. Thx!
  • CTG
    Zak: thx!

Jun 7

  • SergioBaro
    Excellent this type of hints Mark! I ran in the previous one (Z75) but it was me impossible to go up my replay, the page didn't go up it to me. Anyway it was not a good time. Now it is happening to me the same thing! I cannot send the replay of the Z76! I press the button of [SEND] and he/she doesn't send the replay. Many greetings to all!

Jun 8

  • JTK
    Whoa, that wasn't easy - in my first two tries Skid was too fast, so I had to use manual transmission (me!) 8-o But I really smashed his ass! :-)=)
  • Chulk
    Almost there, only missing a Magic Carpet.
  • CTG
    Magic carpet :huh?: I have no magic carpet in my replay...
  • CTG
    JTK: well-done! :cheesy:
  • JTK
    ...but - where's my time?

Jun 9

  • CTG
    Full USC and USL update, latter one is ready to start. :smiley:
  • Duplode
    Slight improvement... but now I get what Chulk meant (about last 5 seconds).

Jun 10

  • AbuRaf70
    Happy birthday, Duplode...!!!
  • Krys TOFF
    Happy birthday Duplode. ;-)

Jun 11

  • Duplode
    Thanks folks... ;-)
  • CTG
    Krys Toff syndrome: (Late) happy birthday Duplode! :smiley:

Jun 12

  • CTG
    Nobody wants to race?

Jun 13

  • Duplode
    Yep, this is going a bit silent...
  • Paleke
    Here it is my firs one... Hi all, happy birthday all and bye all :tongue:
  • Krys TOFF
    Not fast enough so far...

Jun 14

  • CTG
    But it's easy... just don't follow the line I draw in the forum! :wink:
  • Krys TOFF
    CTG, I didn't follow your pink line. ;-)

Jun 15

  • CTG
    Yes, I see... although 59.75 would be available even with that line... :tongue:
  • Zak McKracken
    finally some time to race. But unlike this one, my kalpen time kicks your ass :smiley:

Jun 16

  • Mark L. Rivers
    Zak on the tracks again: great! It's really very pleasant racing with you, Zak, and I think that at Kalpen it will be a great (friendly) battle! :smiley: Btw, you have to drop again your eye-shade now... :wink:

Jun 21

  • CTG
    I posted 6 (!!!) days ago. Incredible! :cheesy:

Jun 26

  • CTG
    Happy birthday, Bonsai Tree! :wink:
  • Zak McKracken
    A very happy birthday to Bonzai Joe!
  • Krys TOFF
    Happy Birthday Jacky. :-D
  • DieselJoe
    Happy birthday, fastest of all Joes! :wink:

Jun 27

  • Mara Mong
    Late happy birthday,

Jun 28

  • AbuRaf70
    Happy Birthday, Bonzai Joe...!!!
  • Duplode
    Happy birthday to Bonzai Joe!... According to my time zone, I'm still juste a day late ;-)
  • JTK
    Whoopsie - happy birthday, Sleeping Melancholy Rose Salami! :-)

Jun 29

  • CTG
    Leading time is too old.
  • CTG
    Let me guess: I get +2 LTB, Mark wins.

Jun 30

  • Dear racers! There will be most likely no site update until wednesday, the admin is learning hard for the state exam (which is held on tuesday). Sorry for the inconvenience!
