Thanks, but I did not become case sensitive (Afullo is listed as current member, while afullo is listed as past member)
@afullo Well spotted, now fixed. Thank you!
Welcome to ZakStunts 2021, everyone 🎉 The new track by Akoss Poo is up, and the race starts officially at midnight.
Btw this is my 18th active season...
For the stats nerds, I've refreshed the racer profile pages, and added charts!
It feels right to kick off my 13th season in Cork with a Countach lap. Hello, Looping!
Welcome all to the 21st season of ZakStunts! Nice plots, they show better how my activity had been very limited in 2016 and 2017! Just a little remark: did Traction Faction renounce to participate as a team? Heretic and Stingray are active...
Guess who's back.. ..maybe for this one replay only. Hi there and happy new year.
Happy new year, Friker! Great to see you around
My first lap of the year!
My first ZakStunts replay for 2021!
Hohohoho, Poo is coming up!!!
BÖFF, Mr. Poo!
@CTG How many of those 17 past seasons were without ghosts?
Woo-hoo, my first upload..
Could be faster, but I have to start somewhere...
One question regarding GAR competition - is pressing ESC and then continuing driving considering RH or NoRH (if you did not rewind your name appears on the in-game scoreboard and is legit according to the game)?
@Friker: I refuse to answer without my lawyer present. Btw pressing ESC is forbidden in GAR competition. Pure noRH is required. And don't worry, usually I don't race there to avoid any doubts.
No-one is inspecting your GAR rpl, that's why I'm not racing. I only believe no-RH times reached at World Stunts Meetings. According to them, Bonzai Joe is the fastest man.
With GAR Rules you cannot press Esc or anything else than drive clean and folowing the yellow line.
@Akoss, there is no official GAR ranking or trophy though, so one can race if they enjoy the challenge, and that's about it. Very little to win or lose.
Welcome to the scoreboard, @Daniel3D. We'll get the missing flag as soon as possible!
And welcome back @Friker, nice to see you around pal! 👋
Hey! So nice to see so many of you here, guys!
I don't care about the missing flag.
the right flag (Dutch) would be nice though
@Daniel3D Okay, flag switched!
For those that saw my age,
I'm not that old, just 41
I find that old enough..
@Marco. In gar rules. Can you press ESC to pause the game to scratch your nose or something? Workout any alteration to the run?
I know 'p' pauses the game but is difficult to find if you're into the race.
Is 'p' allowed to pause?
@Daniel3D Lol, I had literally the same question 3 days ago. It seems that pressing ESC is not an option.. I am wondering about that 'p' keypress. Btw @Marco - I find it *very* difficult to not accidentally trigger speed boosts on banked roads and corkscrews (on exit). That is something I was trained to do in past. This invalidated many of my attempts and somehow it is not enjoyable playing the game that way.
@Daniel3D GAR includes NoRH, and NoRH = no pauses (no ESC, no "p", no Alt+Pause on DOSBox, etc.), regardless of rewinding. @Friker My view is that banked road jumps are part of the "normal" physics of the game (unlike, say, boulevard wall collision bumps). I have them in my own GAR laps, and AFAIK neither @Marco nor other verifiers consider GAR laps invalid because of them. As for l/r corks, the very strict GAR rule about them did bother me early on, but after a while I have gotten used to it -- to me, it doesn't feel unnatural in the way having to drive without banked road jumps would.
The tracks name is quiet dark. I hope it's everything allright there!
Hi my friends , Esc or pause is not allowed , it has no sense , what 's the need to press Esc on a gar race ? Regarding random speedup, they are good. In my gar rules video, I specify that "unvoluntary" speed up on banked roads or after some jumps are valid. As gentlemen agreement you must apologize for that but they are valid and to be honest sometimes we look for that as in this circuit. You can speed up the first enter on banked . Other speed up as entering or jumping out early from corkscrew or hitting divided roads, etc. are obviously super forbidden
Through you'd appreciate this one. Filmed entirely in/near Budapest (the drive-in place is actually 10mins from my home) , feels like a time travel back to the late 80s - early 90s.
@ZakMcKracken Nice trip, thanks!
A little update
And a GAR replay
Oh, a little better
LTB hours can be carried from one year to another?
Happy New year sorry that i was long time not here but now im activ again
Hello KaoS! Welcome to season 2021
@CTG That was my idea yes. You and Duplode (and a few others) can get 300h+ easily, but for those that might collect just a few hours each race, a yearly reset would crush any hopes of accumulating enough hours.
Hmmm okay, I can live together with such a concept, although I don't really agree with that - seasonal results should mirror only the performance in that certain year. It might be a disadvantage for new contenders like Poo or Friker.
I'll try to make the accumulated hours visible somewhere. Looking at those numbers, you'd see it's unlikely to not a be problem—they are very small.
Accumulating remaining (not-used) leading time hours would have helped a lot when I raced for the overall (2002-04, 2014-15). Now I don't really care, do not expect driving all the tracks from me...
The same here. Presumably I won't participate in every race, so the overall results are not that important.
Are you married? (kidding )
Oh right, of course, the new season started. And we have a full scoreboard already, even @Friker is here! Nice! (As an aside, I do sometimes press escape during NoRH races, because I'm wondering if I went off track in that last corner, and if I keep wondering I will just lose focus and miss the next corner. So I look and then continue from the point where I stopped. I sort of assumed that was legal... Of course, actually looking usually breaks my focus as well, and I miss the next corner anyway. I'm just not very good at NoRH. )
Three of us within a second -- we do have a race here
Hey @matamo! It's great to see another fellow Australian.
Still can't drive fast cars
A reasonably decent non-GAR lap
Thanks, Cas and KyLiE.
A try. I hope it won't be the last of the month ^_^. Happy to participate in the new season!
Filler, more than a filler.
There is @matamo, but there isn't @morremo
A GAR lap, why not.
I forgot last year, but it's that time again! Go drive Five Laps on Default
I never met you but you are very fast on GAR. I have seen your replay and it's not only a fast lap but it's also incredibly clean . Are you using the replay handling ?
@Marco 1:37.xx is a good time, but it isn't *that* hard to reach once you get to understand the track well.
Hey @Marco, I definitely do not use replay handling in the GAR competition. Sometimes I will try for an hour or more to get a clean but competitive replay. As you know, it's not easy! Often I will have to wait until the next day and try again. I am very grateful for the GAR competition and we would love to see you over at http://www.raceforkicks.com as well!
And look who's here! Welcome to the scoreboard, @Zapper!
Yes, welcome @Zapper!
Oh please Dup . It's not that hard for you that you are one of the fastest GAR racer in the world. Saying, overall speaking, that it's not so hard would offend a lot of racers . I'm not surprise to see you on the lead but when i see a new guy, I always ask. I have seen that Kylie is a newbie and it's a great pleasure to meet a new super Fast GAR pilot. Well, more to the point, where is Seeker ?
@Marco Well, it's always tricky to discuss laptimes in absolute terms. Let's just say the three of us haven't reached Seeker-grade yet Speaking of Seeker, he told us he will mostly race Asseto Corsa this year (see the December 26/27 news archive: http://zak.stunts.hu/index.php?page=newsarc&year=2020&month=12 ).
Hello @Duplode, @KyLiE and everyone! As newbie, I'll try to get some points but definitly joy playing Stunts for this competition! Cheers
Hi All. It's my first go on this site, I'll give it a go!
Hello @Igorp, and welcome!
@Zapper Nice to see you here! In Race For Kicks, we will for sure make a track for KITT. It won't be the next race, but probably the following one. We'd like to see you there too! @Igorp Great to see that you're hear too! Competing on both tournaments gives you a new perspective of Stunts. I started in OWOOT too at a competition called WSC before getting to participate in ZakStunts!
Hey @Igorp, great to see you here!
I haven't seen so many australians in a same place since the last Man At Work reunion...
Hi my friends
Where do I submit my invoice for all my missed work time?
Hey Shoegazing Leo, stop watching the Australians and start watching the track!
