Aug 1

  • CTG
    I'm still too far from a final victory.
  • CTG
    Mark's way was less obvious but quite effective. Well done! Nice performance from Doc too, it seems my horizont changed track helped him a lot.
  • Duplode
    Congratulations (again) to CTG, and a pity so few of us took this challenge... and Mark's lap is in fact quite pretty. Now about Z78: Zak, it seems that the corner on the first blue switch is flipped to the wrong side. That being the case, can I edit it on TB already?
  • Mark L. Rivers
    It's really strange for me to see other times on scoreboard yet, because when I load ZCT78 in Stunts, the message says: "Limited objects allowed on water..." How can it be if I downloaded the track (I think like others) from Zak's Tracks page?
  • DieselJoe
    B?ff, which times do you see? :smiley:
  • Zak McKracken
    A wrong version of the track was uploaded and I cant find the correct one. I'll fix it soon!
  • Zak McKracken
    track fixed!
  • Duplode
    Interpretation doubt #1: "cross" the tunnel does mean driving inside it or can roofs be employed for that purprose?
  • Mark L. Rivers
    I drove inside every tunnel... :wink:
  • Zak McKracken
    you can use the roof :smiley: (OK in BB1.0 Stunts you cant :wink:)
  • Duplode
    Better be on the safe side ;-)
  • Duplode
    Oh I see, thanks Zak!
  • Mark L. Rivers
    Little improvement with the same choice... Excuse me for the question: what does it mean exactly "you can use the roof" ? Is it possible to land over there? I would want to be sure... Thanks!
  • CTG
    yep you can use it

Aug 2

  • Duplode
    OK, end of test session for today...
  • CTG
    damned difficult track...
  • CTG
    "You have to cross the starting and the finishing tunnel of the chosen section" - but can we switch ways between these tunnels? (for example entering 'red' tunnel, switching to a another way, switching back to red line, entering 2nd red tunnel in the same quarter of the track)
  • CTG
    With my way it's quite important question in one of the quarters.
  • Zak McKracken
    you can switch lines, if it wouldn't be allowed, it would be listed in the rules.
  • CTG
    Whohohohooooo, expect a great shot from me then! :cheesy: :cheesy: :cheesy:
  • CTG
    or not
  • Mark L. Rivers
    I tried to switch this morning from a way to another and return (red-blue-red) before the exit-tunnel, but I think that to avail this possibilities it's necessary to choose a combination that finally can't permit a fast time... So for the moment I choose a linear trial...
  • CTG
    Which color combination did you use? :cheesy: :cheesy: :cheesy:

Aug 3

  • CTG
    Finally I could reduce the number of possible combinations to six.
  • Duplode
    Still about CTG's line-changingquestion: is that what you guys call "dual-way switching"?
  • CTG
    something like that :smiley:
  • Mark L. Rivers
    I think to have found my definitive line. Now I have only to begin to re-drove the whole race... :wink:
  • CTG
    yeah this is a race :cheesy:
  • CTG
    1:34 - my first way, 1:33 - my second way, 1:31 - my current third way
  • CTG
    I'm still looking for the best solution
  • Mark L. Rivers
    Meanwhile you search...
  • CTG
    you are argammon or alain. kidding.
  • Mark L. Rivers
    Interesting theory...
  • CTG
    I said kidding.
  • Mark L. Rivers
    Overtaking me only for 0"05 instead of 0"10, are you telling me you're near your best...?
  • Mark L. Rivers
    Don't worry, I'm going to turn off my PC, publish your new leading time, it will resist at least until tomorrow, others permitting, sure... :wink:
  • CTG
    nope, tonight i'm going to push down leading time. not by 0.05.

Aug 4

  • Duplode
    You two are banging wheels...that's cool, but try to avoid getting thrown into a gravel trap!
  • Mark L. Rivers
    The night is finished, and I hope now you are sleeping, at last... :wink:
  • CTG
    why do you wake up so early :huh?: :tongue:
  • Mark L. Rivers
    I had to exit... but now I'm at home... :wink:
  • Mark L. Rivers
    Ooops...

Aug 5

  • Duplode
    A very slightly cooler lap...

Aug 6

  • akosspoo
    B?FF! I have just registered for this season! Not to drive, but to spam here sometimes! Another B?FF!
  • CTG
    I knew that my counter will stop at 47 hours... accidental? I don't think so. /me is paranoid.
  • CTG
    (!hint: I'm usually away at the weekends)

Aug 7

  • Mark L. Rivers
    Welcome back...
  • CTG
    muhahaha! maybe we are already at 1:20 and still playing this milliseconds thing... but i like it :cheesy:
  • CTG
    marco? :cheesy:
  • CTG
    I re-drove the whole lap because my previous best was 1:30.95.
  • CTG
    Calling 2-3-4-1!
  • CTG
    Calling 1-3-4-2!!!
  • CTG
    /me lost his brain
  • Chulk
    Just an improvisation. Real serious racing tonight!
  • CTG
    Cool! Another Chulk-Mark-CTG battle after the Acura episode? :cheesy:
  • Mark L. Rivers
    It?s quite clear you can check (and update) the scoreboard much more frequently as I can do. And in this way, 0?05 improvements sure penalize me about LTB. So let?s try to aim a bit more highly? If your current best time is a bit lower than last time you sent, I should gain LTB. Differently, you will have to discover your cards? I have nothing to lose discovering mine?
  • CTG
    damnit
  • CTG
    from now i have to hide my best
  • CTG
    my only goal from now is to win this race
  • CTG
    but I guess it's still not your best... :cheesy:
  • CTG
    let's see your next card
  • Krys TOFF
    A little hello from Sorgues (near Avignon) where I could have a computer connected to the web for a few minutes. Tough duel between CTG and Mark it seems. Good. Maybe I'll be able to join it when I'll be back home... Bye guys, see you soon in the scoreboards. ;-)
  • CTG
    it smells like mark l rivers replay in the following 10 minutes...
  • CTG
    he went to brake less
  • CTG
    (smell = i saw the tracker :cheesy:)

Aug 8

  • CTG
    so I was wrong... but 1:25 or better is coming in the morning from Mark.
  • Mark L. Rivers
    Yes, you was wrong, even because I turn off my PC only now since my last update... And you was wrong about your last comment too. This is my last update before deadline for this track.
  • Mark L. Rivers
    I wanted to said "I turn ON"...
  • Mark L. Rivers
    As you can see, I'm writing with too much hurry having to exit...
  • CTG
    1:28.40.... nice. Better than my current hot lap. Expect 1:27 from me in the afternoon.
  • CTG
    Tracker program showed an Italian visitor, I thought it was you. Last update :huh?: You mustn't hide unless you want to lose the championship.
  • CTG
    Wow AbuRaf is closing!!!

Aug 10

  • CTG
    Happy Birthday JTK! I wish you a nice szal?mi cake with p?linka. :cheesy:

Aug 11

  • Duplode
    Even if late, happy birthday to Stunts' elder statesman (who thankfully is still active!) ;-)

Aug 12

  • DieselJoe
    B?ff! Alles Gute nachtr?glich! :smiley:

Aug 13

  • AbuRaf70
    Happy Birthday, JTK...!!!

Aug 14

  • Krys TOFF
    Hi to all, I'm back from holidays. Late happy birthday to Ye ol' JTK and see you soon in the scoreboards.

Aug 15

  • AbuRaf70
    Happy Birthday, Ayrton...!!!
  • Krys TOFF
    Happy birthday Ayrton. :smiley:

Aug 16

  • Paleke
    Although I'm too late, happy birthday both! Anyway, Krys and Mark: I didn't get any replay from you, are you mailing them correctly?
  • Krys TOFF
    @ Paleke : the replay posted in scoreboard yesterday was sent to you before I went for holidays as a teammate replay sexchange. ;-) If you want I can re-send it as official time to competition manager. I'm really busy these days working at home : plaster, electricity, ... But I have to find time to race a few : Duplode overtook Mark and me at WSC, and USC deadline is getting close too while I did not started to race yet, like SDR and ZS also. Damn, racing time is rare these days for me... :-/
  • Mark L. Rivers
    Hi Paleke, I've just sent you my replay for WSC...
  • Paleke
    Well, I didn't get it. Please send them again both of you.
  • Paleke
    Ups, we posted at the same time, Mark, but I've just got your mail... :smiley:
  • Krys TOFF
    Mail sent to you Paleke. :-)

Aug 17

  • Anonymous
    Mail received :wink:
  • Anonymous
    BTW, I'm Paleke :tongue:
  • Anonymous
    BTW, I'm Paleke :tongue:

Aug 18

  • Krys TOFF
    Sh*t ! WSC deadline was yesterday and not today ! I thought it was today midnight (in Argentina)... It's no use starting to race again the track then... :-/ I'll start racing USC track instead then.

Aug 19

  • Mark L. Rivers
    Really a pity, Krys, for you and for me... I had pushed a lot to beat you... :wink:
  • Duplode
    Truly sad Krys... but the effort will prove useful for Mark, I reckon. Wonder if someone broke my estimated winning time...
  • Mark L. Rivers
    1) A needful precisation: I had pushed a lot to beat you too, Duplode. I mentioned only Krys simply in order to general classification... 2) Have you published in any place your estimated winning time? If not, will you tell us it after we'll know the final result? Anyway, I'm quite sure to be not very far from it... :wink: Let's see!

Aug 20

  • Duplode
    Worry not, Mark; my last comment was just an evaluation of my own chances in this round. I'm eager to see how well the guesswork has done ;-)

  • Duplode
    Aff, sorry - didn't knew reloading the "Post News!" page reposted messages.
  • Alan Rotoi
    Hello my friend! ^_^. I just came to say hi! There are so few racers :sad:. I hope the number of racers will grow in the next tracks! Well I'm leaving now. I always remember you and this community that gave me thousands of fun hours!
  • Bonzai Joe
    Hello Alan Rotoi! You also helped to give me thousands of fun hours. Where are you leaving to? I hope you will have a great time wherever you go, it's always been fun racing with you and talking with you!

Aug 21

  • Mark L. Rivers
    About last WSC result I posted my comments in Forum Stunts Argentina.
  • Krys TOFF
    Alan Rotoi and BJ both posting in news ! Good. But it would be even better if they were both sending replays. ;-) Anyway, I should race month's track too... And I will of course.

Aug 24

  • Bonzai Joe
    I still love the Stunts community and I'm never going to leave... It looks like I'm being forced not to race anymore though, which is sad. (but also a bit good because then I don't have to admit that I couldn't beat Mark and CTG)
  • Argammon
    Hi Bonzai Joe! How can you lose your self-esteem like that? I guess that I can judge the level of the competition(s) very well as I have raced now and then during most seasons since 2001. And even though I only raced USC against Mark and CTG this season I would guess that the competition level this season is lower than in those seasons in which you were competing at the top. So: Head Up ;-)

Aug 25

  • Paleke
    I think perhaps I should study my teammates replays' before I send the next one :tongue:

Aug 26

  • Duplode
    Position battles are quiet enough by now... Chulk? Doc? Krys?
  • CTG
    I don't have to hurry, even a third place means overall victory.
  • CTG
    It's good for me as I can't race more this week, my USB keyboard is at home - no racing potential before deadline.

Aug 27

  • DieselJoe
    I wish you a happy birthday, Paleke! :smiley:
  • Krys TOFF
    Happy birthday Paleke. :-D
  • CTG
    Happy Birthday Paleke, long live to WSC! :wink:
  • Duplode
    A very happy birthday to Paleke! :-)

    Happy birthday, Paleke!

    I mean... Happy birthday to me!!! :tongue:

    I mean... Thank you all! :cheesy:
  • SuperBrian
    Happy Birthday teammate.. ;-)
  • CTG
    Hohohoooooo, Super Brian is back! :smiley:

Aug 28

  • AbuRaf70
    Happy Birthday, Paleke...!!!
  • Duplode
    Welcome back SuperBrian, I couldn't wait to be able to race someone younger than me! :-DD

Aug 30

  • Krys TOFF
    Happy birthday to Chulk and Vamolocomisso(where are Orionians anyway ?).
  • CTG
    Happy Birthday Chulk and Vamol?fasz!
  • Krys TOFF
    @ Paleke : hey partner, look at my replay you'll know how to be 1 second faster, loooool ! :-D
  • Duplode
    Happy b-day Chulk! and to vamos-logo-com-isso too...
  • AbuRaf70
    Happy Birthday, Chulk and Vamologocomisso...!!!
  • Paleke
    Happy birthday both and thanks Krys, I'll do that now XD
  • Krys TOFF
    Just a question to Zak : there's 31 days in August, so why deadline is today and not tomorrow ?
  • Zak McKracken
    its tomorrow, sorry, made a mistake.
  • CTG
    aargh I was so happy with 30th August... I'm leaving Budapest on Friday (=no interet connection). I wanted to make sure my final victory... :-S Böff reduction: 21B
  • CTG
    Please modify the deadline section then, not everybody is reading the news (just the info table).

Aug 31

  • CTG
    update?
  • CTG
    ... (congrats to Mark and the other more than 2 racers for beating my crappy time)
