  • dreadnaut
    Got it, thank you!
  • dreadnaut
    Oh, and happy birthday Overdrijf! 🎉

Feb 2

  • Stingray86
    Just sent my ZCT226 to the e-mail listed below!
  • KaoS
    I want to join a Crew is that possible?
  • afullo
    Yes, it is! We have still to define exactly teams for 2020, but I guess we will start from the previous rosters, and then expand. Happy birthday Overdrijf!
  • Seeker1982
    Hi, for now I'm back, however I have to reinstall my PC on a new M.2 SSD in the next few weeks . Due to technical reasons I havn't yet installed the new SSD

  • dreadnaut
    @KaoS - sure you can be in a team! Maybe @Stingray86 would be interested, or @sd4000? Otherwise, you can ask around and join of the existing ones too.
  • Stingray86
    I'm happy to join a team! We could create a new team KaoS and sd4000, if you can think of a name etc. Or I would love to join slowdrive thinking of Marco!
  • Overdrijf
    Thanks guys! (Also, I fully support more players joining teams, good initiative.)
  • Stingray86
    Quick technical question: My Stunts_k program defaults to graphics level 'FULL no scenery' even though I select 'FULL', exit the program correctly, when I re lauch the program its back on 'FULL no scenery'. Is this normal?
  • Overdrijf
    I think the game sets the settings automatically. When I start up Dosbox and launch the game it goes for full no scenery as well, but if I launch Dosbox, up the simulation speed and then launch the game it goes to just full.
  • dreadnaut
    For those interested in teams, here a forum thread for that! :smiley: New teams for 2020
  • KaoS
    Thank you Dread. Hope it works all out !
  • afullo
    Today is my sixth anniversary in this community. :wink:

Feb 4

  • Overdrijf
    Congratulations on six years of awesome.
  • Heretic
    First replay of 2020! Getting the hang of it :p
    Indy 1:43.33
  • afullo
    Thanks Overdrijf! Nice new layout for the leading times...

Feb 6

  • Seeker1982
    new time GARanteed to be faster :wink:
    Lambo 1:44.02
  • Stingray86
    Woo Hoo! Go team Traction Faction :smiley:

Feb 7

  • satanziege
    Go 2020!
    Lambo 2:35.11 A
  • Overdrijf
    I'm looking at a few replays now, The one I have from Afullo seems to end with driving into the water. Could well be an error on my end, just doublecheck your final entry maybe.
  • afullo
    Just in case, did you erroneously start from the truck? If keypresses are considered sequentially starting from a different position wrt the s/f line, the result may not fit the real lap.
  • Overdrijf
    I'm speedy and I know it.
    Lambo 1:34.70
  • Overdrijf
    I'm not sure Afullo, the lap looked pretty good up until that point, so I don't think it was a problem that started at the start line.

  • Duplode
    BRB, creating the 2020 subfolder in my Stunts directory :cheesy:
  • afullo
    By the way, she is the granddaughter of the founder of the manufacturer Lamborghini:
  • CTG
    Let's get the party started!

Feb 9

  • dreadnaut
    And here we are! The first race of 2020 is over, and I've published the quiet replays. It looks quite crowded up there, but last-minute Duplode comes out in the lead!
  • afullo
    This is the first time I see a tie with two different cars with different bonuses, and so with different driving times...
  • Overdrijf
    Me too. That makes giving up on following Duplode's line yesterday evening totally worth it.
  • Stan 286XT
    It is half 12pm were is new track? were is Marco plays dos game?!?
  • Stingray86
    Hey Stan check out the "Permanent Tracks". I was just thinking of submitting a couple of replays for these tracks using the Vette. Marco where art thou!?
  • dreadnaut
    @afullo even more amusing, the cars involved are the one with the highest bonus, and the one with the lowest! :shocked:
  • KaoS
    Hey hey Nice Logo Traction Faction! :smiley:
  • Overdrijf
    Oh, don't forget to up (or think about upping, at least) the bonus on the Toyota Sprinter Trueno when starting the next race! I don't know it very well, but I figure it would be better off somewhere around or over +20 than at +8.
  • Duplode
    Not a bad start :smiley: I'm pretty much sure the draw with different cars is unprecedented indeed. And such different cars at that!
  • Overdrijf
    Overdrijfs list of Stunts first: First draw with different cars (with Dreadnaut). First to the roof of the world (with Crashper).
  • dreadnaut
    I have checked the replays for ZCT222 and I can confirm the scoreboard :smiley: Congratuations to all! Provisional LTB points have been assigned, but the discussion is still open: Cars and rules for 2020
  • dreadnaut
    And the next track is ready! Thanks go to KaoS for designing 'Sandam Main'... but what does it mean?
  • Overdrijf
    Clearly it means the central station of Zaandam (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zaandam). You can tell by all the windmills.
  • Overdrijf
    And thanks for the Trueno tuning!
  • afullo
    A quasi-troll placeholder. :cheesy:

  • Overdrijf
    Having a slide around the track, checking it out.
    Mercedes DTM 1:32.91
  • KaoS
    The Name of the Track is the Name of my Homevillage :smiley:
  • Overdrijf
    Hmmm... I can see the Sand... But I'm missing the Main... :wink:
  • Stingray86
    Great track Kaos! I like the combination of dirt and ice for a change - will really test the traction faction :wink:. Hope people like our logo too. There's something very unique about Stunt's wheels. They are wobbly and distorted but also very clean to look at - plus they are capable of 245+mph!!!
    Vette 1:59.76
  • afullo
    Another quasi-troll lap.
    Carrera 1:57.86 A
  • Overdrijf
    I love those "everyone a different car" rainbow scoreboards.
  • CTG
    Powergear playground
  • sd4000
    It took me a while to realize, that you mean "Sand am Main", @KaoS :wink:. @Stingray86: Great Logo!! I hope i can provide some points for our new Team!!!
  • dreadnaut
    One more car on the scoreboard :smiley:
    F40 1:32.73

    Indy 1:25.03
  • Overdrijf
    Plot twist, CTG was a ghost account of Ayrton (2008 season) all along!
  • CTG
    well, böff!
    Lancia 1:21.68 A
  • Seeker1982
    how about you böff this GAR-Lap? :cheesy:
    Lancia 1:25.13
  • Stan 286XT
    But is a Toyota or is the flying-car from Mask(Mattel)?

Feb 13

  • Seeker1982
    hello Marco, what your up to? :smiley:

Feb 14

  • Stingray86
    Is it possible to have GAR in the 'Season Standings'? Also - welcome back Marco!
  • Marco
    I'm third with a GAR lap ? Really ?
  • dreadnaut
    @Stingray86 - there is no GAR seasonal scoreboard, because there is no competition. GAR is gentlemen enjoying a challenge, scoring is secondary. And cheating is too easy.
  • afullo
    As it is said at the beginning of a Sega Daytona race, gentlemen start your engines!

Feb 15

  • Stingray86
    Ok that makes sense thanks dreadnaut. DAY-TO-NA! DAY-TO-NA! Hmmm Daytona race car would be interesting in Stunts
  • HL96T
    I'm bad at this. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
    Indy 1:51.67
  • Overdrijf
    A new racer enters the fray! Welcome HL96T.
  • Stingray86
    Welcome HL96T! You will improve, i am new too!
  • afullo
    Welcome aboard HL96T! @Stingray86: here at 1:04

Feb 16

  • Stingray86
    Very cool @afullo! I love Sega model2 arcade games. Personal favorite is Sega Rally Championship 1995 - very advanced vehicle physics for its time, just like Stunts!
  • afullo
    Yep, they were top trends in the arcade gaming halls during the mid-to-late 90s:

Feb 19

  • Seeker1982
    just for fun: a GAR-Lap with RH (Replay used but overwise GAR-rules) just to see whats possible
    Lancia 1:19.72
  • Seeker1982
    Yes, back in business :cheesy:
    Lancia 1:17.44
