    Marco if this is still relevant send me the replay in email and I will take a look

  • Duplode
    Seasonal busyness dealt with (mostly); now it's time to focus on the truly important things :wink:
  • Shoegazing Leo
    My 2015: giphy.gif Now, I'll try some laps for the kicks
  • Shoegazing Leo
    The true name of this track is not "Maybe". The name is "Maybe this is the longest track name ever in this competition so far".
  • Akoss Poo
    Well, ZCT149 true name is not Mr. Hankey. It is Mr. Hankey, the Christmas Poo. It was said that it was too long. The true name of ZCT46 is not Foreign Affairs. It is Never Forget. Zak forgot that and renamed the track himself. The original track name was later used (ZCT54). I forgot to label ZCT164 and Zak gave it a name then instead of asking me to do so.
  • Zak McKracken
    24 characters tops. I thought Maybe sounds better than MTITLTNEITCSF.
  • Duplode
    "The longest name ever" has 22 characters. Too bad it isn't exactly 24 :smiley:
  • Duplode
    *21
  • Akoss Poo
    Mr. Hankey, the Xmas Poo would have been good. Or is good. :-)

  • Gutix
    Hi Guys! how are you fellows, so long time!
  • Shoegazing Leo
    Hello, Gutix! We miss you!
  • Duplode
    It's great to see you around Gutix :smiley: And welcome dhoine!

Dec 4

  • dhoine
    Hi everyone! Please tell me what is PENALTY during upload replay? Because my time on scoreboard is not correct. Thanks.
  • Akoss Poo
    Time to change transmission.
  • dhoine
    Where can I find me 'penalty value' if I'm using Automatic gear? I'm trying to find some info on www, but can't find.
  • Duplode
    dhoine: There is no penalty for auto gears. The penalty value is only for the penalty time the game gives you when you skip more than two track elements (the one shown in the evaluation screen). If you are wondering why your time is shown as 1:35.64 rather than 2:42.10 in the sidebar, that happens because all lap times are adjusted by a car-dependent factor, so that different cars can be used in the same race. See the "Car Coefficients" section of the rules for details, or "Choosing a Car" in the Newbie Guide for a summary.
  • dhoine
    I see. Thanks. I'm back on track :smiley:
  • Shoegazing Leo

  • Marco
    ... so Duplode could overtake Akoos at the last race. WOW
  • Akoss Poo
    LOOOL! Akoos was a pre-2001 use of Akoss, never used at ZakStunts, only at TSST (Swedish Stunts, very old former Stunts page).
  • Shoegazing Leo
    Somebody will use Acós someday...

Dec 5

  • Shoegazing Leo
    Very curious to know how to speak correctly Akoss Poo. The hungarian vowels are very different of the brazilian portuguese ones.
  • Alan Rotoi
    Akossinho

Dec 7

  • Akoss Poo
    Akoss Poo isn't Hungarian, it is just a shitty creation. Pronounce it in English. Akoos had the same pronounciation, 'oo' was like in the 'door' word. Only my real first name, Ákos has to sound Hungarian. http://www.phantomranch.net/folkdanc/alphabet/hungarian.htm
  • Shoegazing Leo
    Hungarians can pronounce Leonardo as Léónárdó (are there "ar" like the english "are"?). Brazilian portuguese has very marked vowels, mainly in the accent from Curitiba. Alan Rotoi is Álan Rótaj, then.

Dec 8

  • Alan Rotoi
    I always thought Akoss Poo is relative of Fernando Poo.

Dec 9

  • Akoss Poo
    Once there was a small program who gave the Brazilian football player name from our name with using some kinda algorithm. My name was Akildo then. :-) But Akossinho is better. :-)
  • Duplode
    140-140. Still drawn at -10 days 8 hours...
  • Shoegazing Leo
    Zak is Pedrinho Budapeste.
  • Duplode
    Daniel is a boring name from that perspective - it hardly changes from language to language, and even the nicknames are mostly interchangeable among Dan* names.
  • Alan Rotoi
    Zakao

Dec 11

  • Marco
    Akossoine french, Akossinen german, Akossosky russian Acosso italian Akorason spanish Akorasao 2nd portuguese version

Dec 12

  • Alan Rotoi
    This is a song for Akosinho brasileiro (Warning: it may be too hot for europeans ^_^) PS: Now you know why they dance and play football at the same time :wink:
  • Shoegazing Leo
    "Na Boquinha da Garrafa" hahahahahahahhahaahhahahaaha... a little vintage (this song has about 20 years...)...
  • Shoegazing Leo
    Rock with funk carioca... very knowed sampled songs:
  • Shoegazing Leo
    Bicicleta humana (human bicycle). The players of icelandic team Stjarnan did it after some friends showed it for Johann Laxdal:

    Tangos.... eso si es música para mi...!!!!!

Dec 13

  • Alan Rotoi
    Anelio, uno de mis tangos favoritos es "Atenti pebeta". ¿Cómo hacer para traducir el lunfardo? Es una joya difícil de compartir para los "no-rioplatenses".
  • AbuRaf70
    Pato... pedir que entiendan al lunfardo, ya es demasiado... pero pueden disfrutar de la música, que por lo que veo a nosotros nos gusta mucho...

Dec 16

  • Alan Rotoi
    Damn! Too fast was this month. And so easy track :sad:

Dec 17

  • AbuRaf70
    Happy birthday, Zak...!!!!
  • Shoegazing Leo
    Happy birthday, Zakão!!!
  • Marco
    Buon Compleanno Zacco
  • Duplode
    Happy birthday Zak!
  • Zak McKracken
    it seems we have a surprise leader! :smiley:
  • Zak McKracken
    and thank you all for the wishes! :smiley:

Dec 18

  • Duplode
    *glances bemusedly at the LTB chart
  • satanziege
    Nearly missed the 2015 season ...
  • Marco
    I have run for the LTB only one time in this championship and, I have not understood how it works :smiley:)) Basically, does it stops 2 days before the end ?
  • Shoegazing Leo
    Grunge friday:
  • Zak McKracken
    Nice to see you here satanziege :smiley: Also hope you will come a bit earlier in 2016! :smiley:
  • dreadnaut
    Happy day-after-your-Birthday Zak! And here is my last moment replay. December just flew :shocked:
  • Duplode
    +1
  • Duplode
    Marco: Yup, the LTB counter stops before the quiet days -- otherwise time hiders would get 48h for free without anyone else having an opportunity to react.
  • dstien
    Thanks to Leo for reminding me about the deadlines. Hope next season's rounds will be aligned with the Gregorian calendar again. :cheesy:

Dec 19

  • Zak McKracken
    dreadnaut: thank you! can you please take a look at the replays page for this track? There are several entries where the download button is inactive even though the entries are not quiet. is this normal?
  • dreadnaut
    I think those are the replays sent as "not public" after mid-race, but not yet in the Quiet Days. They will be available for download after the race is over.
  • Alan Rotoi
    So little time :sad:

Dec 20

  • It is time to close season 2015!

    We had a good season, with ten racers competing throughout the entire season and several others joining from time to time. We had an amazing battle for the season's title, which battle was only decided on the last race.

    The third place with 90 points goes to: Marco! Our pro DOS gamer, who can beat all of is in likely any DOS game - and seems he can beat most of us in Stunts as well. No track victory, but a consistent good performance throughout the season. Thanks for joining Marco, hope you enjoyed the season and will stay with us!

    On the second place, with 119 points: Akoss Poo! Akoss made his grand comeback in 2014 and quickly reached his top shape, competing for the title in most months. A podium on all races but one, five victories and the most LTB bonus harvested - very impressive performance. He clearly dominated the first half of the season, then found harder resistance in the second half. In any case he has proved he is still a top racer. Thanks for trying hard Akoss, hope ou are satisfied with the result. It was a very close call, I am certain next time you can catch the title!

    And on the first place, with 121 points: Duplode! FOUR TIME CHAPMION. Wow. 8 victories, including the last four tracks - a hard finish. Truly a hall of fame entry, congratulations, Dup!

    Akoss Poo and Usrin also led Looping Warriors to win the team championship without a doubt. Congratulationas and hope to see more fierce competiion here next year.

    I would like to thank everyone for this great season - ZakStunts will of course continue, see you soon on ZCT174 in early January. If you have any rule/car sugestions, please make sure you post them in the forum.
    Wish you all happy holidays and some good relaxing days at the end of the year. And don't forget to fasten your seatbelt.

  • Duplode
    Time's up!
  • Shoegazing Leo
    Time's up! I tried to improve, but I couldn't...
  • Shoegazing Leo
    Feliz aniversário, Pedro Antonio!
  • Alan Rotoi
    I didn't see any public replay. I wonder if I chose a different way or the same but too slow. It was a 20 mins replay based on the tricks I found at the beginning of the month. Well not all tricks, only those I could make before leaving.
  • Zak McKracken
    Final scores are published :smiley:
  • Shoegazing Leo
    Congratulations to Duplode: won three competitions this year.
  • Shoegazing Leo
    And Marco made a fantastic season and got the Rookie Championship.
  • Shoegazing Leo
    I made a good comeback year, due to some health problems at the last two races...
  • Alan Rotoi
    Congrats Dup.! Brasil Hexacampeão!!
  • Marco
    Ohh, what an amazing end. Very happy for Duplode, very sorry for Akoss. Fortunately I'm not the Marquez one :smiley: because to win Akoss had anyway to stay in front of Duplode. What to say, very sad that i could not achieve a winning race in the pro league for me and my team. Nothing to recriminate in this last one, 1.30 sec is not a gap, is a stargate :smiley:, it was much more sad the 0.00.05 of the ZCT169 against Akoss. Anyway I have always raced copying you and without your replays I could never think to reach these results.I perfectly know that I'm third but i'm not the real third. Anyway, If i'm not wrong, i'm the best rookie ever :smiley:, with 12 races of 12 won in the newbie league , and first newbie to reach a third position in the pro championship (ok, not real but this is the result) and first newbie to reach the second (ARGHHH) place in a porfessional race. Am i right ? . Thank you to my great team.
  • AbuRaf70
    FELICITACIONES DUP POR EL DOBLETE...!!!! Ganador en Z173 lo que te permitió salir CAMPEON 2015. Felicitaciones también para los demás integrantes del Podio. Por mi parte, muy felíz, ya que a solo días de cumplir 82 años, he conseguido clasificarme Cuarto en Campeonato 2015

Dec 21

  • Duplode
    All I can say is thank you all for making this such an enjoyable season. How thin those margins were! Looking forward to face each and every one of you once more on the scoreboards in 2016 :smiley:
  • Alan Rotoi
    Genio Anelio! Y al principio cuando te invitamos al equipo MeganiuM decías no estar a la altura. Supongo que después de tantos logros habrás cambiado de opinión. Amerita un "gotán" de Tita Merello: "Te has comprado un automóvil".
  • Marco
    Cannot believe that Abu is 82...that s incredible, you have the secret of eternity in your fingers.how is this possible? I m feeling very old, i have a lot of little age problems .i cannot immagine to still play 40 years but also 20...maybe 10 if i m lucky
  • dreadnaut
    Ah, another season over! Congratulations to Duplode, Akoss and Marco for the podium, and thank you for giving us such an exciting battle in every track, it was fun to watch :smiley:
  • dreadnaut
    And thank you to Alan, Aburaf and Chulk! MeganiuM on the team podium too :shocked:
  • Alan Rotoi
    I'm glad you joined us dreadnaut. I'll send you the usual end-year mail to organize the team for the next season. It was a great season this year, I didn't participate as would have liked but I enjoyed it a lot.
  • AbuRaf70
    Gracias Pato (Alan Rotoi) pero el mérito no ha sido solo mío. Cuando yo dije que no estaba a la altura de Uds. era cierto, pero debido a todas las enseñanzas de Uds. Alan Rotoi, Ayrton, Gutix y Chulk, pude luego de 11 años, mezclarme con los grandes del Stunts....

    Que debo hacer para poner una foto aquí..?

Dec 22

  • Marco
    Ahahah Leo, this is an italian movie :smiley:. The title is "Tre uomini e una gamba" ... "3 men and a leg" . I want the Abu picture in front of the video with Stunts running !!! What do you eat in Argentina ? I remember when, several years ago, the press said that Maradona was very close to death and now it seems to be returned young. Next year the Naples will engage him again with the number 10 !!! :smiley: Maradona's left foot will remain forever the best foot ever seen on a soccer field
  • Alan Rotoi
    Congrats to Akoss and Marco too! And of course Anelio "Aburaf70" too. Another great campaign being the best racer of the team this year again. Anelio para poner una foto o un video sólo es necesario poner la direccion de internet. Simplemente con eso el sistema lo va a interpretar y mostrar.
  • AbuRaf70
    Quiero mostrar la foto de mi cumpleaños 81 para que Marco lo crea/home/anelio/Escritorio/81 años.png
  • AbuRaf70
    Evidentemente, no se como hacer para poner la foto.

Dec 23

  • Alan Rotoi
    Tiene que estar en internet la foto y esa es la dirección que tenés que pegar acá. Si querés enviámela por mail y la subo.

  • AbuRaf70
    Muchas Gracias, Pato (Alan Rotoi), por subir mi foto de cuando cumplí 81 años. El 14 de enero próximo, cumpliré mis 82 años. Espero que ahora Marco lo crea.
  • AbuRaf70
    Feliz Cumple, Diesel Joe...!!!

Dec 26

  • Marco
    When I joined this site last year, CTG said that i was Mark L. Rivers. I'm not Mark L. Rivers but i have taken that as a big compliment. So, I hope that ABU can take my words as a big compliment too because that's my feeling. You are incredible, you are simply simply incredible. I have no word. You brake the championship, you are the Champion. Zak i propose to add Age points as the LTB ... every 10 years of life one point ... Duplode takes 2 more points, Akoss takes 3 more points, i take 4 points and Abu takes 8 more points every race !!! Obviously it becomes impossible for Duplode to win if you don't change the points system so it's necessary to add also the gap points, every 1% faster than your opponents 1 more points. so that Duplode had to give at least 6 seconds to Abu in a 100 seconds race to compensate. Something like that !!!
  • Marco
    I forgot ... Merry Christmas my friends :smiley:
  • Marco
    0,5 more points each 1%
  • AbuRaf70
    Marco, muchas gracias por tus palabras, pero te comento, que desde que empecé hace 11 años (por eso el Nº 70) siempre me gustó correr de "igual a igual", sin ningún tipo de ventajas extras... Tuve los mejores maestros: Alan Rotoi, Ayrton, Gutix y Chulk y por eso no puedo defraudarlos....
