  • Friker
    there are some wierd bugs around.. i dont remember them from time i was racing back in 2009..
  • Duplode
    Bugs - Countach is a weird beast, even if it is a bull and not an oversized insect --
  • Duplode
    1. Guys, if any of you have replays from Roy's WMCS '09 please let me know, I'm looking for them... 2. happy birthday Overdrijf!
  • AbuRaf70
    Happy Birthday, Overdrikf...!!!
  • Gutix
    1. Dup: Im surely have rpl´s from WMCS 09. BTW, what are you doing?
  • Duplode
    Gutix: preparing the biannual update of the Competition Archive. Since Roy used to mail the replays to the active racers rather than uploading them to the site, I'm missing the ones from rounds 6 to 11. If you have these, I would be most grateful if you post them (or at least the winning laps) on this thread: Replay hunting & Competition Archive updates , or mail them to the Southern Cross address...
  • Duplode
    (actually, it would be nice to have all laps from everyone if possible - for some of these races we can't even figure out the full podium...)
  • SuperBrian
    Damn, I couldn't make it before today. I'll do my best to gather some more points in this race, beware! ;-) DUP: I have all replays from the WMCS 09-races 1,2,3,4,5,6 and 7 and all tracks: 1-11..
  • SuperBrian
    And happy birthday Overdrijf!

Feb 2

  • We had a very nice opening for the 2012 season. Thanks for everyone who joined!
    Active racers, lots of replays, small gaps, and Countach - signs of a good race! Three racers on the podium finished within one second - quite unusual from a Countach race!
    Our 2011 champion, Duplode was the fastest, followed by CTG close behind. As CTG won +2LTB and Duplode only secured +1 (almost zero due to the small number of leading hours despite the frequent replays sent), in terms of points we have a draw. Argentinian magic performed by Gutix was this time only enough for the thrid place.
    Congratulations and thanks!
    Also thanks for all those who returned to the scoreboard after a hiatus - hope all of you will stay with us for the whole season!
    For February, we have a track provided by CTG and interesting bonus points. Hope we will have a race similar to ZCT126 in activity!. Remember, leading time calculation only starts on the 4th of February, but you are permitted to send replays earlier. What are you waiting for? Pedal to the metal!
  • CTG
    Duplode, Friker, CTG podium?
  • Zak McKracken
    scoreboard final, unconfirmed! Update most likely tonight.
  • Zak McKracken
    scoreboard confirmed, update in progress
  • Friker
    what the hell?! this track is horrible :tongue:
  • CTG
    Yes, it is. We are suffering because of our so called "leaders", now also I gave you suffering... :cheesy:
  • Zak McKracken
    Stunts is not only about powergear, banked corners and jumps :smiley:
  • CTG
    ...and you also have the faster and longer option.
  • Friker
    :cheesy: can i have a stupid question - are there possible shortcuts? i am happy to see some slower track but dont like them with imsa cars :smiley:
  • CTG
    maybe

Feb 3

  • Duplode
    Cool track - I missed this particular style a bit :smiley:
  • Alan Rotoi
    Because Stunts is a way of life...
  • Duplode
    On Z126: I had toyed a bit with the 270° cut but couldn't get the spin right. Nice to see Gutix did it and had it recorded for the posterity!
  • SuperBrian
    Nice! I love that kind of tracks. Prepare to see the smoke..
  • SuperBrian
    Auto-testlap..
  • CTG
    Scoreboard is really colorful at the moment.
  • CTG
    I would be satisfied with the current scoreboard as a final result. :cheesy:
  • Friker
    me too :wink:
  • Alan Rotoi
    Hey no! Wait for more replays from me!
  • CTG
    O RLY?
  • Friker
    hey! :-/ not a single hour of leading time i'll got :-/ (mr. yoda ftw! :smiley: )

Feb 4

  • Duplode
    For anyone perplexed by the array of car choices, there is a nice analysis by CTG on the forum : ZCT 127 - Credit Risk Also, happy birthday, Oscar!
  • CTG
    4 cars will have a chance, that's already clear. Which one has the hidden power? I bet on Lancia.
  • Friker
    I think it's that stupid p962..

Feb 5

  • dstien
    Celebrating track 2(8-1)-1!
  • Bonzai Joe
    Oops, dual-way alert.
  • Bonzai Joe
    You shouldn't have added the long way :-(
  • Duplode
    Uh-oh
  • Friker
    OOOOH - i was thinking about shortcuts when i was doing lancia lap but i cannot find anything :-/ it's a pity that a shortcut exists..
  • CTG
    BJ: perfect timing to kill a race.
  • Zak McKracken
    should we restrict way-switching on this track? If we have a consensus on it, I am ok with the ecision.
  • Bonzai Joe
    Would you have preferred February 29? Or only the old racers finding out?
  • Bonzai Joe
    I'm fine with a restriction. It seems like an interesting track.
  • Duplode
    I'm fine with a restriction. It seems like an interesting track.
  • Duplode
    [2]
  • Friker
    i'm against the restriction - let's keep shortcut(s) possible - you could use this track whitout the longer way for another race.
  • Friker
    a problem will arise when some ayrton-like racer comes with super-replay on 29th whitout knowledge that way-switching bug is forbidden in this race.
  • Duplode
    Understandable concern, but to me that seems an acceptable risk to run, as anyone pulling off such an arcane dual-way cut in all likelihood wouldn't miss a main page announcement.
  • CTG
    I'm neutral in this question.
  • Friker
    uff.. seems this will be interesting even with way switching bug :smiley:

Feb 6

  • CTG
    We should not add the restriction. It's my fault, because I was a little bit off from track designing (damn, never learn, ZCT85...). But I suggest everybody should make another lap too - without the bug.
  • CTG
    *for fun (the bug-free lap won't count)
  • Chulk
    I'm fine with a restriction. It seems like an interesting track. Switch is too obvious and will kill the track spirit.

Feb 7

  • SuperBrian
    I don't know. I'm a bit ambivalent about this shortcut. Normally I love to find shortcuts and approve of them, but this is pretty obvious and ruins the otherwise good track. But I guess my opinion must be that the track designer should have seen the trick and therefore its part of the track.
  • AbuRaf70
    Happy Birthday, Lene...!!!

Feb 8

  • Duplode
    Que sera, sera.

Feb 11

  • Gagarin
    It is forbidden change ways?
  • Gagarin
    1. replay: no change
  • Gagarin
    2. replay: include change

Feb 12

  • IMPORTANT NEWS FOR ZCT127

    Dual-way switching is forbidden on the track. You either go on the short way or the long way, but cannot switch between the two. Replays with way-switch are considered invalid and will be deleted.
  • Alan Rotoi
    This is sick
  • Zak McKracken
    OFFICIAL NEWS: Way switching is NOT ALLOWED on ZCT127.
  • Gagarin
    good
  • Gagarin
    Bonus calculator is bad or no? Have many mistakes and 1st place? Impossible.
  • CTG
    Nope, but current lap times are really weak (most of them with auto trm). 49 is strong.

Feb 13

  • CTG
    Happy Lupuszka-day!

Feb 15

  • CTG
    I have no mood to race.

Feb 18

  • Friker
    probably the last step i can hold with you.. but still should be enough for 4th place :smiley:
  • CTG
    Another +2 LTB.
  • Friker
    hmm.. too late. CTG, could you let the fight for another LTB point?
  • Friker
    Gagarin, you should show us some sick drive :wink:
  • CTG
    Nope.
  • CTG
    I know that you have even better in the pocket, Slovak! :cheesy:

Feb 19

  • Duplode
    Yup, show us your mad skillz Frikster :wink:
  • Friker
    you are so mean! :-/ only 5 hours of leading :-/ probably my best is around 1:10 but i have not time to do that.. (i need twice amount of time as you to do good rides plus every single car is new for me) some experienced racers should drain your next good replays :smiley: i think i am done..
  • Friker
    Bonzai Joe should definitely send some replay.. :smiley:
  • CTG
    So the F40... I'm not very happy with that.
  • CTG
    Yeah, BJ's time is annoying on the visual scoreboard.
  • CTG
    I just see: Friker = Duplode. :cheesy:
  • Friker
    an interesting thing - i've sent the 52.45 replay at 0:50 not at 0:05.. at Duplode's place i would take F=D as an insult :smiley:
  • CTG
    :tongue:
  • Duplode
    @You two: You get what you ask for :tongue: :cheesy:
  • CTG
    Finally! :tongue:
  • CTG
    Hahahaha, you did it. The inner loopcut with Carrera. Yeah!
  • CTG
    Okay, you wanted.
  • CTG
    Enough for today. Dup: go under 50 seconds!
  • CTG
    Okay, a last one.

Feb 20

  • CTG
    Now sleeping...
  • Friker
    you know what? F U guys! :smiley: this is completely nonsens.. happy racing..
  • CTG
    You should a race bit more instead of crying. :tongue: (motivating insult, again)
  • CTG
    race a bit... (50% resolution sucks but this is the only way to use ZakStunts without getting F'ed)

Feb 22

  • Alan Rotoi
    Now I raced with F-40 and I can say: "CTG, this is so obvious". :sad:
  • Alan Rotoi
    I vote for a BAN permanently.
  • Friker
    what are you talking about?
  • Alan Rotoi
    There is a rule here: "Any form of system abuse results in the banning from the competition".
  • Friker
    ok and what has he done?

Feb 23

  • Zak McKracken
    can you please brief me what happened? I lost track...
  • CTG
    What are you talking about, doggy?
  • CTG
    And what is "so obvious" about this track? Did you find a new trick?
  • Shorty
    One more try?

Feb 24

  • Duplode
    @CTG, commenting on "What are you talking about": no clue either, but that 05:51 post will look awesome three years from now as an out-of-context random news highlight =D

Feb 25

  • Duplode
    Will this ever end? :smiley:
  • Alan Rotoi
    Usual stuff. It makes me mad, but we can't against it... can't we?

Feb 26

  • CTG
    Okay then once again: what the hell are you talkig about, Ivan?
  • Bonzai Joe
    I think it's about that time when you made fake racers and put them on the scoreboards, blurring the results tables and taking points from real racers, and lying to us all the time.
  • CTG
    I think he wanted to say something about the track ("I tried F40 on this track and blabla"). I can't imagine how can I cheat with a track.
  • Friker
    Alan: As far as I know I am a real person (unless we are someone's imagination :smiley:) I live in Bratislava and stuff about I am another CTG's ghost is insulting me. (along with calling me Fricker, Frikster etc. :tongue:) My name is Viktor Tomkovič, and you can google various things about me.. (mostly in Slovak)
  • Alan Rotoi
    WTF?
  • Friker
    :O it seems this race will have nice ending :smiley:
  • Bonzai Joe
    Does anyone here know what anyone else, or themselves, are talking about??
  • Friker
    nope :smiley:

Feb 27

  • Bonzai Joe
    Maybe it's not Friker but Gagarin. Friker is of course real. And yes, Gagarin seems like another ghost, and I think it's time to stop.
  • CTG
    LOL again... If I say no, nobody will trust in it. If I ask the experts to prove it by IP checking, you will say I used another computer. It's useless to fight against this opinion. Believe what you want to believe. Even if I am / if I'm not Gagarin.
  • CTG
    and of course böff
  • Danish Observer
    We usually call this a non-denial denial.
  • Argentinian Accuser
    Unbelievable.
  • Hungarian Medium
    Screw it! I'm leaving!
  • Brazilian Pollyanna
    Cut the crap, people! Can't we all get along?
  • Russian Cosmonaut
    (vanishes into the upper atmosphere)
  • Bonzai Joe
    That is true. Your opinion is of no importance here. If Gagarin is not your ghost, I'm not sorry for saying he is. If he is, how shruggable.
  • Lithuanian Pootarget
    :tongue:
  • Italian Crymachine
    Kick and ban him, because he's the Satan. If you won't, I will retire! I mustn't be the member in such a community... (eating pasta at the moment)
  • Dottore
    Btw my password is 'Dottore'.
  • CTG
    Enough. :cheesy:

Feb 28

  • Alan Rotoi
    Still here?
  • SuperBrian
    Just to the change of atmosphere: Im happy? to be back. It seems as if I should give the F40 a try. :cheesy: About the track: I can see it is not allowed to dual-way-switching on this track - then be it - You should just remember that a ban on one dual-way-switching on a dual-way-track leads to the argument of saying that dual-way-switching is never allowed. Of course some tracks are designed to dual-way-switch, but some aren't and it can still be possible to do it. If we make a ban on this track it is the same to say that dual-way-tracks must NEVER be allowed unless it is the purpose of the track. I find this a bit disturbing.
  • Dottore
    Nice, my password WAS Dottore - I thought it was a crappy joke CTG.
  • Bonzai Joe
    Actually we had a poll about it in the forum and we decided it was just for this track - because it really makes the track a lot less fun.
  • Navras
    Mine is matrix.
  • CTG
    From now Dottore and Navras are not my ghosts anymore. :cheesy:
  • Duplode
    Brian: IMO the proper precedent here is Z79 - the default ZakStunts rule is BAFAP :smiley:
  • Duplode
    I half expect to see a monster Porsche replay around here.
  • Alan Rotoi
    I gave a try to porsche carrera, but I haven't a good result easy, so it was discarded xD

Feb 29

  • Alan Rotoi
    BTW why you keep writing from your ghots? Didn't you hurt this community enough? You are a poor and sad clown, a looser, a forever alone meme.
  • CTG
    böff
  • CTG
    (those ghosts are inactive for ages - from the aspect of racing)
  • CTG
    Let me guess: BJ will be right behind Dup to give him the advantage, like Barrichello in Zeltweg.
  • CTG
    Or Massa in Hockenheim.
  • CTG
    "Daniel is faster than you!" said Cork.
  • dstien
    Improved my failure.
  • CTG
    Btw I did not improve. It's an unwritten rule that nobody should fight really hard on his own track.
  • Bonzai Joe
    I'm afraid this old pipsqueak doesn't reach near the heights of his teammate, the brilliant double-D.
