  • The final results of ZCT137 and the 2012 season are now available. Congratulations to the winners, and welcome Friker to the hall of fame! Of course huge congrats to Duplode for another season's victory and CTG for the great 3rd place overall!
    Update will be continued most likely tomorrow.
  • Friker
    Happy new year! :smiley:
  • Zak McKracken
    scoreboard final, confirmed.

    Felicitaciones a Friker por esta gran victoria, luego de una gran batalla con CTG...
  • CTG
    Although I have several strange thoughts in my mind, I won't be like Akoss Poo. Friker: you had a strong lap time, congratulations. However, once you will also face a seriously fighting opponent - if you can win that battle, you will earn your first valuable victory. This one was an X-mas present from Duplode, Gutix and Biker.
  • Renato Biker
    Viva o Friker! :smiley:
  • Zak McKracken
    I will attempt to perform a site update now, but due to the rule and car changes I may not be able to finish today. You may experience some downtime. DO NOT post any replays until I officially announce the update has finished.
  • Krys TOFF
    Congrats Friker, and happy new year to everyone ! :cheesy:

Jan 3

  • Zak McKracken
    Technically the update is complete and the track is available. Official announcement tomorrow - feel free to test and report any bugs meanwhile
  • dreadnaut
    The new cars are fun!
  • Friker
    Thanks for gratulations. I was suprised by dreadnaut's line. :smiley: Keep going. Now, I am very unsure whether introduction of two PG cars and one super fast car will not ruin this season for me (6 PG + 3 fast :-/).
  • Duplode
    Happy new year, Stunts world! Internet connection troubles have kept me away for the last several days. So, where do I begin?
  • Duplode
    Congratulations Friker for an eagerly-awaited and well-earned victory! :smiley: And now, on to 2013 :wink:
  • Duplode
    Oh, and @Friker (03:40): it is not so bad - none of the newly introduced cars has PG.
  • Varalica
    Are the car bonus levels confirmed?
  • Varalica
    The croatian word 'varalica' means 'cheater' anyway, while 'twyll' is the 'cheat' in Wales.
  • CTG
    Stunts-free holiday, forum ignorance. Will be back when I have the mood. 11 completed races were too much for a year.
  • Friker
    :O what was I driving? :cheesy: ok so "only" 5 PG + 4 fast. Still, nothing for me. :cheesy:
  • dreadnaut
    Fun: the Melange can accelerate up a cork u/d without crashing horribly. The McLaren felt a bit too powerful, but it might have its place on the right track. That said, I only drove a handful of laps, I might change my mind. The bonus system should prevent them from ruining the season.
  • Alan Rotoi
    Congratulations to Friker and Dup! And thanks to Zak for using Melange this year! :smiley:
  • dreadnaut
    LM002 is very relaxing :smiley:

    Hello!

Jan 5

  • Farewell, 2012!
    We had a great season at ZakStunts. Despite the relatively low number of constant participants, we had races with considerable activity and great battles. We have elected our first triple-champion, who also did what nobody before could: win the championship for two years in a row. Congratulations, Duplode!
    We also had two new race winners, the first ones since 2009. Congratulations SuperBrian and Friker! Extra grats to Friker for the overall second place - good job!
    We have also soon Cork's Crew rise again and win the championship. Congrats too!
    We had some bad rules, some bad decisions, some small flamewars but also a lot of fun, including long time not seen live races. Thank you all for your efforts and participation!
    And now we roll onto 2013 with some changes.
    The ruleset has changed from 2012, keeping some of the changes introduced last year in a refined and hopefully better approach.
    We also have some new cars! Three, to be precise. I expect this to bring some new life to the races and encourage car designers to create other nice cars soon.
    We also have the first track available and already several racers participating... a promising start!
    I don't expect ZakStunts ever to reach again the level it had 10 years ago. But I do hope that we will have a handful (maybe even a dozen) of active racers, who enjoy battling and having fun with the greatest game ever created. :) And I also do hope to see another Stunts competition to cater for the needs of the more active. Its not good to be alone.
    But whatever happens, you can count on me keeping the spirit alive. Long live Stunts - enjoy the 13th season of ZakStunts!
  • AbuRaf70
    Hola Chulk...!!!
  • Alan Rotoi
    Hi ADPunk! Welcome back!!!!!!! :wink:
  • Chulk
    Audi Quattro test... not bad
  • Chulk
    Zak, can you add some way to add penalty time in RPLinfo Online?
  • Duplode
    Chulk: unfortunately that's impracticable, as an .RPL file contains just the keystrokes and other info needed to generate a lap; penalty time is calculated on-the-fly by Stunts.
  • Chulk
    I know that. But maybe the same way we add it when submitted was usable
  • Duplode
    Oh, I see - so that we get the corrected penalty as well. That would be nice, indeed.
  • Chulk
    :wink:

Jan 6

  • Dexter Morgan
    Chulk won't ever win ZakStunts.
  • CTG
    Damn, I fucked it up with the nicks, please delete Dexter Morgan! :cheesy:
  • CTG
    not bad from a drunk one
  • Chulk
    I may not win Zakstunts, but I'll sure kick your ass this month! Remember I got my first 2 podiums with Audi and Lm002...
  • CTG
    You have to eat more spinach to beat me.
  • Chulk
    Dare to bet?
  • CTG
    Why not? :tongue:
  • Usrin
    It's worth to try it when you're sober. :smiley:
  • CTG
    WTF!

Jan 7

  • CTG
    Correction: I'm not a Damage Inc. member, went back to Looping.
  • CTG
    Let's see how fast Usrin is.
  • Usrin
    Extremely. That's the least you can expect from a Slovak. :tongue:
  • Usrin
    Btw, I'm also a Looping Warrior this year. Further correction: as I saw in the forum, Friker and dreadnaut became Yellow Fleas.
  • Chulk
    Rustying off lap by lap. Still a long way to go to RB's time. Enough to beat CTG for now :b
  • CTG
    I always knew that Usrin is Friker. :cheesy: Chulk: beware! :tongue:
  • Akoss Poo
    BÖFF!!!
  • Zak McKracken
    it's good to see the scoreboard full of team - and I have not yet sent out the usual yearly spam :smiley:
  • Akoss Poo
    Well, I opted for being a member of 'Opponent Near' team last year, but I just wanted to ask you now to put me in the good old Looping Warriors team (after seeing CTG's and Usrin's status). Thanks. :-)
  • CTG
    A Stunc-buzi jó édes... WELCOME BACK! :tongue:
  • CTG
    Hey, Yellow Insects! Where is your team logo?
  • Akoss Poo
    slight improvement in the last sector
  • CTG
    Poo: what will you do if I publish 1:21.xx with Audi? :cheesy:
  • CTG
    Mr. Hankey, the Christmas Poo
  • Usrin
    Azt a 7 meg a 8-át! Erm... what a race! I'm grabbing a beer for that! Cheers, and of course BÖFF!
  • CTG
    time travel to 2003
  • Usrin
    Fuelled by the beer. :smiley:
  • CTG
    what kind of beer?
  • Usrin
    Borg Pilsner. Unfortunately not a Slovak one, hence not enough for top performance...

Jan 8

  • CTG
    Not bad.
  • Usrin
    I agree: not poor, but Poo(R)!
  • Usrin
    Yay! I've made my worst linguistic joke ever!
  • CTG
    Meanwhile Poo made one of the best (will be quoted in the team forum).
  • Akoss Poo
    orgasm :-)
  • CTG
    guess who will destroy your time in the evening
  • Usrin
    Perhaps Bonzai Joe?
  • Usrin
    Or maybe Argammon.
  • CTG
    Probably me.
  • Usrin
    You bet wrong. :smiley:
  • Usrin
    Look at the graphical scoreboard: Looping Warriors push RB off the track. :wink:
  • Renato Biker
    Oh no, that seems a bit obscene. :tongue:
  • CTG
    Hmmmm...
  • CTG
    Usrin is too strong...

Jan 9

  • Chulk
    Still a long way to go, but better than expected so far
  • Chulk
    I'll take the outside line, far from you, sexually deviated loopings!
  • CTG
    Insomnia.
  • Chulk
    WTF!!! :huh?:
  • Friker
    priceless.. :cheesy: ok, so audi is the car. RB, you rock! :cheesy:
  • Usrin
    Pfff, I'm afraid it's not my category from this point.
  • Friker
    btw, RB, we are looking for a third member for our team. wanna join? :tongue: :cheesy:
  • CTG
    Argie, Argie...
  • Renato Biker
    Friker, I think that it`s a good idea, it would be a good contest between teams. Did you accept me?
  • Friker
    wow! this week is awesome! :cheesy: i passed a hard exam in Monday and now this apcceptance. i accept for sure! :smiley:
  • Renato Biker
    Hehehe. Thank you. Just wait a minute until the members of Average Joe give an answer for my e-mail. :wink:
  • Renato Biker
    Hehehe. Thank you. Just wait a minute until the members of Average Joe give an answer for my e-mail. :wink:
  • CTG
    And what did Mr. Hat say?
  • CTG
    Frbiker in action
  • CTG
    admit the existence of replay generator, mr. dickhole (=Frbikergammon il Riverssore), yes, i'm drunk
  • Friker
    and you know we love you despite all of your insults :wink:
  • CTG
    don't be that gay

Jan 10

  • Alan Rotoi
    I hate the big drunk CTG's ass :cheesy:
  • CTG
    hahaha

Jan 11

  • CTG
    1:33.56 won't be enough, Doggy! :tongue:
  • Friker
    why do you call Alan Doggy?

  • Alan Rotoi
    Feliz cumpleaños Anelio!!! Que la pases muy feliz con tus seres queridos, pero dale unos minutos al vicio del Stunts!!
  • Duplode
    Happy birthday, Anelio!
  • CTG
    Happy AbuRaf78-day!
  • Friker
    Happy Birthday, AbuRaf! :smiley:
  • AbuRaf70
    MUCHAS GRACIAS a todos, por los saludos con motivo de mi 79 cumpleaños... CTG: Sería AbuRaf79 entonces, pero prefiero que siga siendo AbuRaf70, ya que es una referencia para saber cuando me uní a esta familia tan linda del Stunts...
  • CTG
    Even better! Sorry for the mistake, the 'Racers' menu said 78.

  • Renato Biker
    Paradisio has not answered my email. dstien yes and it's ok. Well, I want to start the teamwork. Zak, include me in the Yellow Fleas. Friker and dreadnaut, send me a e-mail: renatobrodzinski@yahoo.com.br
  • Duplode
    What a coup for the Fleas :O :smiley:
  • CTG
    Friker: why don't you invite dstien as a fourth member? He's one of the greatest hackers in Stunts history.
  • Friker
    Yes, I was thinking about it. But I would accept him - he is one of a few active racers..

Jan 18

  • dreadnaut
    Welcome among the fleas, RenatoBiker!
  • Renato Biker
    Thanks, dreadnaut. Paradisio replied my e-mail, so now it's official, I am a Yellow Fleas member :smiley:
  • CTG
    Mingva le van fingva.

Jan 20

  • dreadnaut
    Does anyone have a hacked version of Stunts without the *Re-Start Driving* menu choice?
  • Renato Biker
    I also wish it did not exist, because we almost never restarts the entire lap. This forces us to be frenetically saving replays, or lose the successful attempts.
  • Alan Rotoi
    The story of my life... :sad:

Jan 21

  • dstien
    Disabling "re-start driving" and adding keyboard shortcuts for next/prev frame and continue racing have been on my restunts todo list half a decade. Any day now... :-)
  • Renato Biker
    I think that you will not have so many problems to do it. :smiley:

Jan 22

  • dreadnaut
    Uhm, rssreplays seems stuck on the last race of 2012...
  • Friker
    :smiley: another bug on the site :smiley: making this page full of insects :tongue:
  • Zak McKracken
    one less. :smiley: rssreplays now fixed.
  • Zak McKracken
    whee I posted at 1337 :cheesy:

Jan 23

  • Renato Biker
    Zak, change my team. :smiley:
  • Zak McKracken
    done :smiley:
  • Renato Biker
    Thanks.

Jan 24

  • CTG
    AbuRaf, dstien: USC is running! :wink:
  • AbuRaf70
    Gracias por el aviso, CTG... ya me bajé la pista Alicante y la probé... es bastante difícil para mí, pero parece muy linda... lo que no entendí bien, por la traducción tal vez, es donde hay que enviar los replays... Explicame por favor como se hace. Gracias
  • CTG
    AbuRaf: replays must be published in Stunts Forum (for Alicante: Alicante (USC 71). Therefore we have quite high podium time bonus (similar to LTB).

Jan 25

  • AbuRaf70
    CTG. Entré al Foro, pero no entiendo que y como hay que enviar el replay
  • Duplode
    AbuRaf: Debajo del cuadro donde escribes las respuestas en el foro hay un "Archivos adjuntos y otras opciones" link. Haga clic en él y un comando "Attach" aparecerá para adjuntar el archivo.
  • CTG
    Thank you, Duplode!
  • AbuRaf70
    Muchas Gracia, Duplode... en castellano entiendo mucho mejor... y Gracias a CTG también, ya que mis 79 años ya se empiezan a sentir y tengo que preguntar cosas que tal vez Uds. dan por sabidas.. De paso, CTG, mi fecha de nacimiento es: 14-01-1934
  • CTG
    Zak: please remove Dexter Morgan, ADPunk should get a point.

Jan 26

  • Bonzai Joe
    Hey Friker, it's been a long time, but congratulations on your victory!
  • Friker
    BJ: thanks :smiley: Zak: could you also remove about 3/4 of login names which are only products of CTG's frustration/phobia/paranoia? :cheesy:
  • CTG
    Please start with Friker! :cheesy:
  • CTG
    kidding
  • Zak McKracken
    done and also created a stunts related programs subforum.
  • Alan Rotoi
    Where is Dexter Morgan's replay?
  • Alan Rotoi
    Oh, ghosts... fucker...

Jan 28

  • Alan Rotoi
    Say hello to Goyo! He's a friend of mine and when he saw the web wanted to race and remember old times :smiley:
  • Chulk
    Hola Goyo!! Bienvenido! Cualquier duda, chifla!
  • CTG

  • Alan Rotoi

    hello goyo :smiley:

Jan 29

  • Usrin
    Yeeepeeee, another 0.1 second improvement !! [(C)Krys TOFF, 2004-11-07]
  • Chulk
    This must be some kind of a record... what's the most Leading hours anybody has had in Zakstunts history?
  • Alan Rotoi
    I guess when Gutix won sending a replay in the 2nd day of the month.
  • CTG
    I guess the biker is the record holder. Don't expect any "research", this is not the question I want to answer.
  • CTG
    ZCT64: Biker 667 hours, that must be the record.
  • CTG
    ZCT73: CTG 677 hours...
  • CTG
    ZCT73 was the worst race ever for sure.
  • Friker
    broken gearbox? you could ride only at 1st gear?
  • CTG
    3rd gear
  • SuperBrian
    Hello all. Late testlap here - I'll return tomorrow. Also late but huge congratulations to Friker on z136 and Duplode on the champion-title! Unfortunately I have been tied up by examns the most of december and january and in the middle of the process I had to exchange my keyboard with a new one because I spilt tea on the old. But now it is really hard to get used to this one when driving stunts..

Jan 30

  • satanziege
    Pitman?
  • CTG
    Pitman used to be a type of language exams.
  • CTG
    Btw welcome back, satanziege!
  • CTG
    Bonzai Joe should participate.

Jan 31

  • Usrin
    Happy birthday, Lise! (I was quicker than CTG. :tongue:)
  • AbuRaf70
    Happy Birthday, Lise...!!!
  • CTG
    Usrin! The only thing I say: this is the age of Facebook (I guess Lise won't read this messageboard)... :cheesy:
  • Usrin
    No. This is still the age of spamming. :cheesy:
  • CTG
    as
  • CTG
    you

    I

  • CTG
    spam

  • CTG
    lot
  • CTG
    If this one is true, congratulations for Meganium, perfect car hiding!
  • Alan Rotoi
    Mad! ^_^.
  • Chulk
    I have a bad feeling about this anyway...
  • Chulk
    The fleas have been too silent...
  • CTG
    luckily i have no time and mood to race this evening + my pg skills... well... they don't exist at all :cheesy:
  • SuperBrian
    Interesting with the corvette. :-o Hmm, maybe it's too late to get to know the track, especially with this stupid keyboard but I'll try to the deadline..
  • Friker
    well, I was too convinced by Biker's replay that I've stopped thinking about Vette.. (anyway I would try vette if I have some PG skill :smiley: )
  • Friker
    convinced and fooled.. audi = 180 - 200mph vette = 245 and that's a big difference :sad:
  • Chulk
    FRI: "I was too convinced by Biker's replay that I've stopped thinking about Vette" LOL! That's what actually got me thinking about Vette...
  • Duplode
    This race began like Z70 (impossible time early in the month)... and it seems it will end like Z70 too (MeganiuM Vette victory) :smiley:
  • CTG
    Friker drove the Corvette, be sure
  • Friker
    I thought that vette's bonus is not enough for the PG line..
  • Friker
    CTG shut up! and change it to the "is driving" :cheesy:
  • CTG
    Btw how far is the deadline? 25 or 85 mins?
  • Friker
    "All times and dates on the site are in GMT+1, it's the official time zone of the competition" I hope it's 85 mins.
  • Duplode
    I think there is some issue with the deadline counter. I vaguely remember seeing it wrap around to 24 hours and 59 minutes at the end of a day some time ago. We will see if that happens again in ten minutes...
  • CTG
    I think Friker pretends to race now, but he knew about Corvette for ages. But it sounds so cool, that "hey, I made this one in 10 minutes and won the race".
  • CTG
    I hate Corvette's powergear, I can't declare it enough times.
  • CTG
    (gave up trying right before the cork l/r + right corner + hillside + small left + bridge part)
  • Alan Rotoi
    Iron Maiden - Two minutes to midnight
  • dreadnaut
    Yup... countdown went from "2012-01-31 23:59 0 day(s) 0 hour(s) and 0 minutes left." to "2012-01-31 23:59 30 day(s) 24 hour(s) and 59 minutes left. "
  • Friker
    ok, CTG.. this is insulting. so shut up, please. I tend to ignore you, but now I have no mood for your paranoia. I've never lied about my state of progress!
  • SuperBrian
    I don't understand. As far as I know I live in GMT+1 time zone, but the time is 23:12!? I'm still struggling with the corvette power gear, but is it too late?
  • Alan Rotoi
    So it's Zaks time!
  • SuperBrian
    Yeah, zak must be living in the GMT+2 time zone, damn. I didn't make it then..
  • CTG
    :cheesy:
  • Alan Rotoi
    BTW The rules says GMT+1
  • CTG
    Friker is nervous. That's what I wanted to reach. :cheesy:
  • Chulk
    Rules says GMT+1, so I would keep racing if I were you. Rules support your times for the next 40 mins.
  • Duplode
    Do keep racing, Brian; evidence indicates this is just a bug in the counter (see my message and dreadnaut's just below).
  • Alan Rotoi
    No! Keep reading my messages! :cheesy:
  • SuperBrian
    Double damn! I still miss half a lap!
  • CTG
    at least biker's audi time should be defeated...
  • dreadnaut
    The countdown bug is a bit annoying though, since I assumed I had no time to try a Vette lap an hour ago. Which I probably didn't have anyway, but! :-p
  • Chulk
    All this last minute Vette racing will change car bonuses balance compared to a Vette podium and Audi for the rest
  • CTG
    yeah, it was a waste of time to design ZCT139 for Corvette...
  • CTG
    i'm out
  • CTG
    or a last try to improve the last corner
  • CTG
    Stormy finish, isn't it? I don't remember any races with such a sharp end.
  • CTG
    safety snding
  • CTG
    bah
  • CTG
    < 1:00?
  • CTG
    ANYÁD!
  • CTG
    < 1:00!
  • CTG
    AbuRaf... GRRRRRRRRR!!! :angry:
  • CTG
    Sorry AbuRaf!
