  • Alan Rotoi
    Welcome! Do you know Stunts Oracle? :smiley:
  • CTG
    Dreadnaut: there's a bug in the LTB counter, Duplode has already 1688 hours in this month. :cheesy:
  • CTG
    And böff, of course!
  • CTG
    Hmmmm... it wasn't as difficult as I expected. Now RBI can send his 1:29.95.
  • dreadnaut
    Indeed, the leading time code has some trouble crossing months. It should fix itself tomorrow or the day after, but it's up next among the code to clean up.
  • Duplode
    Happy birthday, Overdrijf! :smiley:

  • Shoegazing Leo
    Trivia: Bonjai Joe is the active racer, except Zak, who made the early debut (ZCT2)
  • Shoegazing Leo
    With the name now in the scoreboard is Akoss Poo (C12)

Feb 3

  • CTG
    Whohooo, the first LTB point in the pocket! :grin:

  • afullo
    Hi guys! Sorry if I'm a bit absent, but I've a lot of things to do on various fronts. I noticed just two minor issues in the new site setting: there is a latin1/utf8 clash (see the umlauted "o" in ZCT158 which is not displayed correctly), and my Damage Inc. affiliation does not appear. :smiley:
  • Duplode
    It's curious how, in the ZCT158 scoreboard, Böllér Jani has a proper umlaut but Böbszlee doesn't. It is likely an issue affecting older profiles (note also how there is no flag next to Böbszlee's entry - Leo pointed out a while ago that the same thing happened with his old profile).

  • Shoegazing Leo
    There is a battle (in the middle, but is a battle)

  • Shoegazing Leo
    Just a brazilian exclamation about a time sent: "Caralho, Duplode!"

  • gtament
    Gosh! `1 minute?! Seriously?! It's impossible(
  • Shoegazing Leo
    Welcome, gtament. I recomend to see the Stig's lap. dreadnaut and Zak: the Ukraine flag is not appearing.
  • gtament
    Thanks, I will) It was a little bit hard to find replay downloads. I suggest to make a link in the left menu
  • Shoegazing Leo
    On "results" in the top of scoreboard are some public replays.
  • Marco
    Hi Leo, Now there's the possibility to choose if set the replay as public or hide it. I have chosen to set it as public :smiley:
  • Duplode
    Hello gtament! Re: "1 minute?!", you will already have realised it if you downloaded some of the public replays, but just in case: the times are corrected according to the car used, so for instance Marco's 1:00.47 is actually 1:49.95 in-game.
  • Marco
    I saw the Duplode 54.56 replay ... He's a computer :smiley:) And CTG and AKOSS the same. 3 Computers :smiley:))

Feb 10

  • gtament
    Anyway, I don't like going off road. Keeping car on track gives me more pleasure even if it's much slower)
  • Zak McKracken
    switching to the correct car
  • CTG
    Whooops!
  • CTG
    Well... Akoss Poo has to improve a bit more now...

Feb 11

  • CTG
    BöÖöÖöÖöÖöÖfF!!!
  • Alan Rotoi
    Is gtament the first Ukrainian racer in zak's?
  • Marco
    WOW Zak, 11 seconds better :smiley:)) CTG, Akoss, in this moment your team has the same points of the Cork's Crew but ... if you send to Akoss something less 1:37 :smiley:))
  • Marco
    Hi gtament, give me a track and a car and we can have a challenge, no cut, no replay . ok ? Dosbox recording ctrl alt f5
  • Shoegazing Leo
    Marco, thanks to learn me to generate videos with DOSBox. Here's my 2005-ZCT56's lap. I made the track:
  • Shoegazing Leo
    It's easier to find like ZCT056

Feb 12

  • CTG
    Usrin in action!!!
  • Marco
    With Dos Box recording CTRL-ALT-F5 ... now you have to upload no "replay" videos :smiley:)) I'm really impressed by your skills so that I would like to see more real time action. So, if you can, if you want, upload some videos on your youtube channels in real time ... better no cut and no tricks otherwise they will take too much to be raced.
  • CTG
    This is a great race so far - with very tight middle class. 5-10th place order is unpredictable.
  • Alan Rotoi
    hmm when starts the quiet days?
  • Duplode
    In a little less than two hours, I suppose.

  • Duplode
    Hi!! There is definitely no quiet replay being sent along with this post :smiley:
  • Shoegazing Leo
    I sent 29 replays before quiet days. And now? a) 0 b) 1 c) 2 d) 3 e) 4 or more
  • CTG
    I won't improve.

  • CTG
    It might decided some rankings...

  • CTG
    We have 9 hidden replays so far.
  • Shoegazing Leo
    Why to Hyde? Why to Jeckyl?
  • Shoegazing Leo
    Good chances what the first Slowdrive's victory will be with Marco on the Newbie League.

    Welcome to ZakStunts, kahdra!

    FINAL REPLAY?

Feb 15

  • We had a nice season start thanks to you all! 15 racers gathered at the starting line and some fierce battles emerged with roaring Porsches all around.

    The three racers on the podium left the pack behind: Akoss Poo finished third, CTG second, and Duplode won. This means another victory for Looping Warriors as well - seems the team wants another title this year? We'll see if there'll be any strong contenders.

    On the LTB front CTG secured two and Akoss one point, establishing a difference in points from the non-podiumers, not only a difference in time.

    The public replays system seems to work well - at least I suspect it is one of the reasons for the strong replays in the mid-field.

    Last but not least, a great welcome to all our newbies: Marco, The Stig, afullo, kahdra, gtament - welcome! Hope you'll enjoy playing with us!

    And now on to ZCT163 - Full House. A twisting-turning yet quite fast track - time to warm your brakes too. Enjoy!

  • CTG
    the system did not reveal the hidden replays
  • Marco
    Then ? Am I 6th or still need to wait these hidden replays (that will kick me out of the top ten) ?
  • CTG
    DUP won with 1:34.90.
  • Alan Rotoi
    Could be possible to post the new track today or tomorrow? It's holydays here :smiley:
  • Duplode
    @CTG: Quoting dreadnaut from the site update thread - "I'm now storing all the replays. The non-public ones are of course locked until the track is over. For the quiet replay, there is an easy admin button in the 'All results' page, but it's not automatic yet."
  • CTG
    hidden replays are available (just change the number in the link)
  • Duplode
    Yup, just noticed that. Well spotted...
  • CTG
    Sometimes it's really annoying to see that racing in the last X days was useless. It would be better to know that Akoss Poo/Bonzai Joe/Marco/etc. is only 0.20 behind.
  • CTG
    Alan: somebody should build a track first (and set the custom +10/-10 car bonus levels).
  • Shoegazing Leo
    I repeat for the 4th time my best result: 10th. It's a good return after 9 years.
  • Shoegazing Leo
    Congratulations for Marco: the victory on Newbie League is the first Slowdrive victory!
  • Akoss Poo
    I'm rather satisfied with this race. Good 3rd place, good replays even behind me. Much stronger race than in the past months. Good to see my girlfriend being faster than Afullo's quiet replay. It was her 3rd day when she played Stunts in her life.
  • CTG
    Strong replays? Don't make me laugh. My 2nd place lap is still a weak one.
  • Duplode
    I feel the top replays were quite solid for a trickless car like Carrera. The only thing missing were crazy RH bug jumps a la Z86, and perhaps an impossible (?) cut past the final bridge corners, and I don't think those mean much for the quality of the race.
  • Marco
    Hi ... 15 seconds behind the lead means that we are running in another championship. First positions skills are unbelievable and the very first 2 positions replays are also completely different. Duplode, CTG, how can you perform close turn on fly when you jump and how can you turn at almost 150mph before the last tunnel ? After see your replays, it seems to me that my 15 seconds are a little gap ... My feeling is to be 2 minutes behind looking at you :smiley:. Thanks Leo :smiley:))
  • CTG
    I wasn't really satisfied with my corners.
  • Duplode
    Marco: Air turns are all about drifting. Sans all differences between cars and track combos, the general idea is to begin sliding before the jump, adjusting it to get the desired flight angle and mid-air spinning and finally getting the car to snap back into control after landing. As for that fast left turn, it was a question of taking advantage of the widening of the track due to the boulevard before it to make the driving line through the corner as open as possible (larger turn radius -> higher possible speed). Similar lines are often seen, for instance, when there is a left-right fast chicane before a left corner.

    Why the founder nick is Zak McKracken ... do you know Zak McKracken? Zak McKracken was a journalist in 1989 that saved the world by a terrible alien project ... project to reduce the intelligence of the humans. The aliens captured Zak and sent on earth a clone with a new terrible project ... force all the people of the world to play Stunts 30 days per month, 365 days per year.AHAHAH ... Leo is completely captured

    "Marco": don't act like a newbie. You are the same person as Mark L. Rivers was. Maybe Argammon, Alain or Alan Rotoi (in this probability order).
  • CTG
    (Yeah, Stunts Oracle=Rotoi; Clairwil=Duplode; Mft=Zak; Dexter Morgan=CTG; M.Schumacher=Mislav. Just tell, Marco=?)
  • Marco
    I have asked for some minutes ... 6 minutes !!! Thanks CTG :smiley:)) Dreadnaut can confirm that I speak italian ... is there some italian in your list ? :smiley:)) I have copied by Akoss Replay, I have never played with cut, tricks and replay and I don't like them but there's no other way to compete ... so my only way is to try to copy . Anyway thanks, it's a great compliment :smiley:
  • Duplode
    It's not like there is any reason to take CTG seriously about any of this, but anyway: Mark L. Rivers was neither a ghost nor a ghost creator.
  • Marco
    So it was not a compliment but a joke ... AHAHAH, it's good anyway. I will wait for your 15 seconds gap as for the first race :smiley:
  • Duplode
    That doesn't mean you aren't a strong racer though :smiley: And, barring car choice shenanigans, I really don't think there will be such a large gap to the midfield this time; the track is even more trickless than ZCT162...
  • Shoegazing Leo
    Marco speaks italian with the two hands. There is a joke that, in Italy, there is a sign written in bus "Please do not talk to the driver. With that hand he will drive?"

  • Marco
    WOW ... when I have seen the CTG 1:17.30 time I thought ... ok he made the perfect lap. But when I was seeing the replay I understood that he was still joking !!! The first part is really fast, he reaches the base of the first jump in 15.35 (!) . Also if he pass through the wall , his turn skill is Great !!! I'm not an expert but looking at the rest of the replay, I think that he has still the possibility to lower of some seconds !!! :smiley:. Akoss reached a fastest speed on the last part achieving a little bump. Tricking and cutting aside ... it's really hard for me to turn as you turn, so high rpm without skiding. I didn't read your newby but I don't think that there's explained as to play soccer as Maradona or Pelè (because we have argentinian and brasilian here, better named both) Don't know if it's an experience problem or skill limit. I think the second :smiley:
  • Shoegazing Leo
    Pelé? Maradona? Peladona:

  • CTG
    53.100? How? :cheesy:
  • Zak McKracken
    wow, Marco is fast :-O
  • Zak McKracken
    Marco: the key to fast turning is keep pressing and releasing the acceleration and turning key very fast in an alternated fashion. I must admit, perhaps it is the hardest with the Porsche 962. I was also unable to master this car - one can take a single large corner in 5th gear.
  • Marco
    WHAT ... you mean like : "A" "B" "A" "B" "A" "B" "A" "B" "A" "B" "A" "B" "A" "B" "A" "B" "A" "B" "A" "B" "A" "B" "A" "B" "A" "B" "A" "B" "A" "B" "A" "B"
  • Marco
    A little slower than CTG in the first part ... Duplode closed in a very great way. I think that you are close to the best time !!!
  • CTG
    You will be surprised then... 1:05 is kidplay.
  • Marco
    But let me understand ... are you improving your lap time step by step or simply you are joking but you already have an incredible final lap ? If the way to trick and cut is this one that you are showing ...how much can you still improve ? :smiley:))

  • Alan Rotoi
    Yes, and this: ZakStunts rules: "Any form of system abuse results in the banning from the competition."
  • CTG
    ...said the other ghostmaster. If you were here in the last 13 years, you could notice there's no punishment. (Maybe because if Zak tries to ban me, I'll come back with a new name. And another one. And another one...)
  • Dottore
    What happens if I click on "I am CTG's ghost"? I have no replays here to try.
  • CTG

  • Bonzai Joe
    The first few ghosts gave a sense of mystery. Then it quickly got old. Now, after years and years and a thoroughly tiring number of repetitions, it feels more sad, like we're watching a compulsory flasher just going down the spiral of his own delusions.
  • CTG
    ...reflecting the uselessness of some competition rules. It seems it doesn't bother anyone enough to make the necessary steps. (However, we are still waiting for the details in the Mr. Epic case.)
  • CTG
    Another thing you should know: I've already asked the competition manager to ban me (not only once!), but he refused to do it. I still say I can provide some extra information if it is required for a disqualification.
  • Zak McKracken
    No need to ban you. You can leave anytime you want. Oh, wait... it seems you can't. You are doomed to race here forever, even after the competition closes and there are no new tracks. The curse of ZakStunts!
  • Akoss Poo
    Is it important if your opponent is a ghost, a hacker, a re-nick or a natural driver? On each online sites (not only Stunts), you have to race against unidentified characters. Ghostbusting is another quasi-impossible task. Creating and pursuing ghosts are both just a waste of time. Your only decision is if you race or not (at least mine). There's no need to close the site, to ban any character or to start a n+10000th flamewar. BÖFF!
  • Zak McKracken
    Akoss you are totally right and spot on. Thank you for being reasonable.
  • CTG
    And you still don't get it. Even my cloudy mind accepts that there's a real person behind any fake characters. If Marco/ Mark L. Rivers/ Ayrton/ Myron/ Vamologocomisso wins a race, it's the own victory of that certain person. But it's better to know how many of them belong to the same person.
  • Zak McKracken
    Start with a catalogue of your identities. Not only Stunts. That should keep you busy for a while. Thanks.
  • CTG
    Believe me or not, the list is ready for ages (actually it's always up to date).
  • CTG
    ('cause getting older doesn't really help to remember all login names)
  • Bonzai Joe
    The only problem is that I get wary of spending any energy on new, real racers because it's probably just CTG again, pretending he's someone else and doesn't know anything.
  • Shoegazing Leo
    One problem I noticed in the use of ghosts is that it turns out to discourage new entrants or those who fight for intermediate positions. Imagine sweat to stay in the top ten and not get why someone who has more skill creates a ghost that sends a faster replay.
  • CTG
    BJ: the same goes for Marco L. 'gammon. Leo: they can also find some motivation in beating strong opponents.
  • Shoegazing Leo
    Marco is not Argammon. An evidence is a question made by him using the latin form of questioning, using only the "?" sign, very common in portuguese and italian languages. Spanish language have an upside down ? to mark the start of questions. Argammon is german native speaker and german language uses similar structures of english. There are some unknown facts about the Argammon's Orion exit that is more another evidence that they aren't the same person.
  • Marco
    If Marco/ Mark L. Rivers/ Ayrton/ Myron/ BJ: the same goes for Marco L. 'gammon. I'm not understanding if I 'm a new entrance discouraged by Mr.Epic ... or I'm a ghost too.
  • CTG
    Leo: if a sign like that is a proof, you are very-very naive. Shall I believe that somebody is Hungarian if he uses letter "ő"? :cheesy:
  • CTG
    Marco: yes, probably you are a second/third/.../30th character of the same person. I don't know who, but Argammon is one of the main candidates.
  • CTG
    (of course this is only my opinion)
  • Marco
    I don't think that Argammon would open an italian/english youtube channel with the name Marco Plays Dos Games :smiley: But I have to admit that Mark L. and Marco sounds very similar :smiley:))
  • CTG
    ...
  • Marco
    This could not be an opinion ... Or I'm a newbie or I'm a ghost . "Is only Duplode that thinks that I'm simply another slow new racer ? :smiley:"
  • Marco
    Uhmm I have checked some Mark L. results ... He was much more better than me ... in 2007 he finished 2nd the championship. Ok Ok , 8 years passed so, maybe, I'm Mark but slower because older ... :smiley:)
  • Navras
    Checking CTG's ghost option.
  • Navras
    Option does not work.
  • Zak McKracken
    works exactly as expected
  • Zak McKracken
    Marco: I think you are a fast new racer :smiley:
  • CTG
    Does it remove the results automatically?
  • Alan Rotoi
    Akoss said: "Is it important if your opponent is a ghost, a hacker, a re-nick or a natural driver?" It's important because is against the rules. A ghost made lose points to some racers so it's a system abuse. If Zak deletes that line of the rules it will be legal. So please could you be a bit more consistent and less hypocrite?

Feb 25

  • Shoegazing Leo
    To understand: a strong ghost can decide the championship. Hipotetycal situation: a racer is very strong in a track and this is the last race of season. His rival needs a 2nd place to be champion. Then, the ghost send a replay to be the 2nd, the racer are the 1st and the championship is winned with a dirty game.
  • CTG
    ROT: I'm afraid we agree in something. :cheesy:
  • Alan Rotoi
    BTW I remember you cryied all over the forum for months about Chulk, Ayrton, Gutix accusing they are ghosts. Now it's not important. Hypocrcy. It's a shame that some people can't stand something built for fun (and free!). They must corrupt it turning to a bad joke. The only objective of that people is make sure it happen. And you won, you really won. Almost every competition since you joined is a joke. Sad people you are. I'm very dissapointed.
