    First try on this track... and having a lot of fun with it!

  • Cas
    Trying with the Untamable, but I think I'm not skilled enough for that car, as much as I like it...
    Acura 1:40.71
  • Cas
    Alright... the Corvette will have to be! By the way, very competitive track!
    Vette 1:23.81

  • CTG
    Still over 1 minute? Bah!
  • Duplode
    I'd say you're not too far off the mark this time, actually...

  • CTG
    Btw what a nice crowd between 8th and 12th place - all within one second.
  • CTG
    Indy is definitely NOT the winning car this time (+9s penalty).
    Indy 1:13.31

    Public one.

    A DOSBox weirdness report: I started getting graphical freezes while playing Stunts after updating my (Arch Linux) system this weekend, even though DOSBox itself wasn't updated. I didn't do much investigation; in any case, the freezes stopped once I switched to dosbox-staging (see https://dosbox-staging.github.io/ ). Mentioning it here in case any other Linux players find it relevant (or Seeker and GTAMan, who were discussing alternative DOSBox builds here last race).

    @Duplode except I'm not on Linux
  • afullo
    I just updated Ubuntu from 18.04.4 to 18.04.5, for the moment I'm not experiencing anything weird...
  • Duplode
    I have just switched back to plain DOSBox (if you're installing them through Arch's tools, it replaces dosbox-staging, and vice-versa) and the freezes seem to have stopped, which is good, though I guess I'll remain in the dark about what happened. @GTAMan15 When I mentioned that discussion I was mainly thinking about the playing-with-alternative-builds part of the matter. For instance, one I'd really like to give a go is DOSBox-X (see https://dosbox-x.com/ ), but it seems to have a compatibility issue with Stunts in that the save replay dialog doesn't work, which is quite discouraging.
  • Seeker1982
    the replay i just uploaded was my new GAR-lap, but by accident the GAR-flag hasn't been set - it tried to abort the upload process but it was to late
  • Duplode
    @Seeker1982 I have added the GAR flag.
  • Seeker1982
    thanks, but I drove a new and faster GAR-lap anyways :cheesy:

    3... 2... 1... CORVETTE!

  • Stingray86
    I'm sticking with the Corvette coz its me. Well done @KyLIE, you can fly the flag for us :smiley:

Sep 14

  • KyLiE
    Thanks @Stingray86. I prefer the Corvette in real life as well. :smiley:

    Happy birthday!

    Happy birthday, Cas! :smiley:

    O yeah, we have a friggin Duplode track race going on and I'm barely on the board yet. Help, I need more time! Does somebody have an extra Wednesday or something in their regular workweek that I can take off their hands and fit into my own calendar?

Sep 18

  • Cas
    Thanks, guys! Oh, I haven't had much time here this month and now the race is virtually over!
  • Zak McKracken
    8th finished GAR try. Can't say I have not taken this one seriously! :smiley:

  • Duplode
    Nice GAR times, Zak and KyLiE! As for me, it would be nice to narrow the gap to Seeker a bit further, but I don't think it's happening.
    Vette 1:02.03
  • KyLiE
    Thanks @Duplode. I narrowed the gap for you! :tongue:
    Carrera 1:19.88
  • Alan Rotoi
    It's a list filler and I found it's a great track! Damn! Congrats!
  • Seeker1982
    seems like I have to step up my GAR-times - great fun for me :cheesy:
    Carrera 1:18.95
  • Duplode
    Thanks Alan! Speaking of late replays, I might as well try a lap or two with the Carrera.

  • Seeker1982
    congrats Duplode esp. for winning the GAR-race
  • Duplode
    Y'know how midfield F1 teams hope for something abnormal to happen so they have a chance of beating Mercedes or whoever else is dominating? That was me today with the late change to Carrera :cheesy:
  • Seeker1982
    I did a strategy-error by changing the car to late and didn't max out the PC4 in time; instead I watched a (nice) movie I have a driven sub 1:46 in the PC4 on my HDD, but it came to late
  • dreadnaut
    Yaaawn! Let's publish those quiet replays before heading to bed :smiley:
  • KyLiE
    Nice work @Duplode. You snaked 1st place at the last minute! Pun intended.
  • dreadnaut
    Scoreboard confirmed! Congratulations to Seeker1982, CTG and Duplode! 🏆
  • dreadnaut
    And the new track is up, thank you @Alan!
  • Duplode
    (1) So I actually won with that Vette replay! :grin: (2) As I was reviewing what the season standings look like now (pretty close!), I have added the LTB points for Z230. Seeker managed +1 and, after narrowly missing out on Z229, CTG got +2 by a margin of two hours. (3) From the map, @Alan 's track looks fun, and the concept is nice too!

    Congrats Dup for winning last track!

    I hope you'll enjoy this track. It's inspired in Kowloon Walled City: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kowloon_Walled_City
  • Heretic
    Fun track!

    A lap with my yellow p962 :wink:
    P962 1:07.56
  • Cas
    First attempt! Hey, the design of this track is excellent. I've been reading about the Walled City and I like how you've represented it, @Alan. Very fun track, allows for lots of tricks
    P962 1:15.47
  • Cas
    ...and a GAR one!
