    Hey, guys! Sorry I have been off for a while... It's a number of things, but I don't forget about you and, like the Terminator said... "I'll be back" :tongue:
  • Friker
    ..and I'll be glad to welcome you back. :wink:

    Not sure where Zak is, but in the meanwhile I have published the quiet replays for ZCT180.

Aug 3

  • Hi Guys,

    too much happening in real life recently, sorry for the delay again! The new track is out in any case - I have chosen CTRACK18 from Kalpen's competition. A nice slow track, should be suitable for the normal championship and GAR as well.

    Congrats for the winners, Renato did an amazing job and nice to see a lively GAR race as well! Hope to spend a bit more time with you this month.

  • Cas
    Hey, Dreadnaut! Happy birthday!
  • AbuRaf70
    Happy Birthday, Dreadnaut...!!!!
  • Shoegazing Leo
    Happy dreadday!
  • Zak McKracken
    site update in progress. sorry guys we have to go retro again this month :sad:

  • Shoegazing Leo
    I did my Lancia replay without RH. Where are the checkbox?
  • Shoegazing Leo
    My Lotus Spirit lap too...
  • Cas
    There you go. My first replay in a long time :smiley:
  • Marco
    Hi Leo, I asked to remove the NORH flag because it made confusion with the GAR championship for new racers. No one seemed really interested in the simply NORH. Why don't you run a GAR ?
  • Duplode
    (Jumping in the conversation) NoRH with shortcuts is a very different beast than GAR... I, for one, will miss the other checkbox quite a bit, even though I can see the point behind its removal.
  • Marco
    Hi Dup, in the previous race you were the only one that run the NORH . The others lap time were GAR races that check also the NORH flag.
  • Duplode
    I know -- that's part of the reason why I chose not to complain about it last month.
  • dreadnaut
    Thank you guys, it was indeed a good dreadday :tongue:
  • dreadnaut
    And now back to the track!
  • dreadnaut
    This 1:29.80 would be NoRH, if I had the tag :smiley:

Aug 5

  • Cas
    Hey, guys, where can I read the exact details and rules of the GAR?
  • Duplode
    I don't think they have been put to paper yet. Marco had made a very nice video demo of the rules, but it doesn't seem to be available on his YouTube channel at the moment.
  • Duplode
    (In a nutshell, it is NoRH + very strict OWOOT -- follow the yellow line, no cuts whatsoever, no highway or pipe wall bug jumps, no driving on tunnel roofs. I might have forgotten something though...)
  • Marco
    It is.
  • Duplode
    Thanks Marco -- I hadn't seen it for some reason.
  • Renato Biker
    Zak, the ZCT180 Duplode's replay is not right. I can see his lap. :smiley:
  • Renato Biker
    *I want to see his lap. :smiley:
  • Cas
    Thanks, Marco. Very good! I learnt to race Stunts online with an OWOOT championship (Paleke's WSC). Hope we ever see Paleke again. So it will be a pleasure to participate. WSC wasn't NORH and some tricks were allowed as long as you didn't move off-track, but those changes are OK for me :smiley:

Aug 6

  • Cas
    I just submitted a GAR replay. Where do I see my position? The general table still shows the replay I sent before because it takes less time than the GAR one, naturally.
  • Duplode
    @Renato: Until Zak fixes the archive you can get my replay through the "All Results" link in the ZCT180 page. And @Cas: the GAR scoreboard is at the bottom of the scoreboard page, below the track map.

Aug 7

  • Duplode
    I should mention that I spent almost a minute trying to decode the meaning of the track name :smiley:
  • Shoegazing Leo
    This is almost the name of track :tongue:

  • Cas
    Ooof! Just finished a huge update of Cas-Stunts! Guys, is it possible to change the login password here, at the ZakStunts website?

Aug 10

  • Duplode
    Happy birthday JTK!
  • Cas
    Yeah, happy birthday, JTK!
  • Shoegazing Leo
    Happy birthday, JTK!

Aug 12

  • Cas
    Zak or Dreadnaut, I have something to ask you regarding how ZakStunts handles track files. I'll create a thread on the forum about it

Aug 15

  • AbuRaf70
    FELIZ CUMPLEAÑOS, AYRTON....!!!!!!
  • Cas
    ¡Sí, Feliz Cumpleaños! Inolvidable. Me acuerdo de sus #1 en WSC de Paleke. Happy Birthday, Ayrton. Unforgettable good times at Paleke's WSC with Ayrton and Gutix always fighting for the first place!

Aug 24

  • dreadnaut
    Wooo, welcome back on the scoreboard Akoss! -sigh- now I really need to improve my lap :tongue:

Aug 25

  • Duplode
    Akoss is back! A good occasion to give it another shot.
  • Duplode
    ... and a quick GAR attempt for good measure.

Aug 27

  • AbuRaf70
    Feliz Cumple, Paleke....!!!!!
  • Shoegazing Leo
    Nobody knows...
  • Shoegazing Leo
    Happy birthday, Paleke!
  • Duplode
    Happy birthday Paleke! (I'm sure you'd like to see a OWOOT modality in ZakStunts.)
  • Cas
    ¡Feliz Cumpleaños, Paleke! Ojalá vuelvas un día. AbuRaf... ¿Ustedes perdieron contacto con él también? Me gustaría mucho comunicarme con él. Vivía en mi ciudad y seguramente sigue por aquí. Hope Paleke returns one day. So did everybody lose contact with him? He lived in my city and probably still lives here. I would like to get back in touch with him.
  • Akoss Poo
    Just to show that I am still here. I found another 10 minutes to drive the track. One thing makes this replay special: I made this on the computer which I used in the Golden Era (until 2005). I haven't touched that PC since 2013, but we borrowed a monitor to save our old data from there. (Btw PhD absolutorium fulfilled, despite this, I still may lose my job due to new boss.)
  • AbuRaf70
    Hola Cas... lamentablemente, luego de que se fuera a trabajar a la localidad de Alta Gracia, perdí contacto con él... Paleke había venido a Rafaela a visitarme una vez...
  • Duplode
    FinRok seems to be in a strong position for a podium at least...!
  • FinRok
    My good friend Marco keeps saying after seeing my replay as he requested to see it,he says that in my replay has a few seconds of penalty score, but i did not saw the penalty score in my run, in the screen so i though it was ok! Weird
  • Duplode
    FinRok: To check that for yourself, pause the replay just before (as close as you can get) the finish line, continue the lap from there and see what the evaluation screen says.
  • Duplode
    (That is how your lap will be tested when the race results are validated. You should really check it BTW: if there is penalty, in this track, even an improvised last-minute fix will be several seconds faster than keeping the penalty, specially if it has to do with the final corners.)

Aug 28

  • Duplode
    I just drove a 1:53.35 GAR lap, but missed the deadline by a few seconds. At least it wasn't a 1:53.25 :smiley:
  • Duplode
    FinRok: Unfortunately your (now public) lap does have 12s of penalty, as displayed by the evaluation screen. The message isn't shown on-screen while driving, as you described, because you rejoined the track after the start/finish line (i.e. past halfway through the s/f tile). If you continue your replay from 1:16.30 and steer a little to the left, so that you enter the s/f tile before the line, you'll see the message.
  • dreadnaut
    I added back 12s penalty to FinRok's lap, and published the quiet replays. Waiting for Zak to confirm the results :smiley:
  • Akoss Poo
    Can you write 'Opponent Near' as my team? That was the team name which was found out by me, I still have good memories about it. Thanks. :-)
  • Marco
    Where is Friker ?
  • Marco
    Super congratulation to Duplode and Biker ... Because of your country I could say "the 2 Ayrton" but it feels to me that you are more "2 Michael" . Ayrton was a super human with a big heart , Michael was a super robot.
  • Duplode
    Friker seems to have missed the deadline. Same with dstien...
  • Duplode
    Thanks Marco. Part of the credit should go to FinRok -- I don't know if I would have pushed myself to a low 1:19 without that time at the top of the scoreboard :cheesy: (and it should be noted that, as the partials around 1:06 tell us, weren't it for penalty cut he would have been fighting you for a podium place!)

    Bhoeff, fuck off! ZAK, you should leave the re-union. Looping will fuck the entire Stunts universe!
  • THC
    C T G IS BACK!
  • THC
    bööeff!! Böff reduction: 40B
  • dreadnaut
    Akoss, I'm happy to add the Opponent Near team, but you need at least a second member. Anyone wants to join? FinRok?
  • THC
    No, dreadnaut! I'm here, THE EVIL, the Antichrist! BoeFF? CTG is lurking around!
  • Dreadnaut
    Hello there, hope life is good and your health for better :smiley:
  • Duplode
    Quelle surprise! I salute thee, unholy Spectre!

    THC would be DieselJoe
  • THC
    Thanks DUP! We cannot talk about "health" - neither from phisical, nor from mental point of view. I just dropped in for a while, in nostalgic mood. (May I get my Forum access back, limited to LW subforum and strictly READING private messages, please?)
  • THC
    Sorry for behaving like an imbecile again (especially with Z.M.), I`m working against it. Partial success: number of those alcoholic outbursts decreased significantly - but still, not to zero. Yesterday I fell into despair... Have a nice time on the track.
  • Akoss Poo
    Oh, what a surprise! Hi, CTG! :-) (If the one-member team is not an option, I'm remaining without team. I'm not planning serious racing in the near future, but maybe one former teammate joins and we can form again the Looping Warriors.)
  • Marco
    So happy to see CTG again. Check the GAR championship
  • Marco
  • AbuRaf70
    FELIZ CUMPLE, CHULK....!!!!! Lo mismo para Vamologocomisso....!!!!
  • Zak McKracken
