  • KyLiE
    The Chevrolet Corvette CERV III for Stunts has been released! :cheesy: Check it out!
  • Ryoma
    The amateur League is not a success and the presence of zapper is killing it.
  • dreadnaut
    Success can't be measured over a couple of weeks, but I would not count Zapper as an amateur, you are right :cheesy: Having reached the podium in ZCT240 brought him among the professionals. Sorry @Zapper, I'll remove your replay from the Amateur scoreboard.
  • Ryoma
    Yes I thank @GTAMan15 for his comeback. Waiting for Igor, Stan and 1337.... This League is for you guys
  • Zapper
    Hi dreadnaut, no problem, I only use Amateur scoreboard on the first replay I've uploaded for this track. :wink: I guess that only one entrance should exist between Amateur and "normal" scoreboard, but since it is a side competition you proceeded in the right way (I was about to request removing of my Amateur result). Thanks
  • Alan Rotoi
    There is a trick that I've never did and I'm sure it is possible but I can't do by now. :cheesy:
  • dreadnaut
    @Alan, Are you trying for your videos, or for this track? :cheesy:

Oct 2

  • Alan Rotoi
    Haha I mean Zct243... anyway last night I worked on another replay, not from zak's, not for videos and not for R4k :wink:
  • Alan Rotoi
    @dreadnaut you got an email 😉
  • Ryoma
    Welcome back @Igor. I hope you will enjoy the amateur league

Oct 3

  • Cas
    Posting my first replay of the month :smiley:
    Mercedes DTM 1:57.65
  • Cas
    And one with the Audi, let's see....
    Audi 1:45.71
  • Ryoma
    It's a test of the modified Delta HF Integrale 16v with a new dashboard. Does it work for you ?
    Lancia 2:16.84
  • dreadnaut
    @Ryoma the replay seems to work alright, but note that customised cars are not allowed in ZakStunts, for two reasons: some dashboard changes can cause behavioural changes, and one could cheat by adding digital speedometers to cars without one, to improve shifting.
  • Alan Rotoi
    Hey! 1st Permanent Track replay in 10 years! I sent a replay for Bernie's. Let's take over those old records!! http://zak.stunts.hu/index.php?page=permanent
  • Ryoma
    @dreadnaut I notice that. In fact, I kept the gearbox from original (change only the color) and the 2 tachos are with needles. The idea is to have the real dashboard without changing the behaviour of the car. Maybe for next year.
  • KyLiE
    @Alan, I sent a replay for Default when I signed up last year, but it never appeared on the scoreboard. :sad:
  • dreadnaut
    It probably went to Zak's address, which I don't think he checks at the moment. Alan sneakily sent it to me directly instead. I should remove the submission form and archive the competition for the moment, otherwise I'll have to update all the results manually 😱

Oct 4

  • Cas
    Guys, the permanent competition at Race For Kicks is active. You can post your replays there as well. In fact, my intention when I built that was to help with the pending task of updating the system for that competition. By the way, are the replays of the P.C. saved somewhere? If so, we could sync the scoreboards of both instances. @Dreadnaut, is there a way I can help? Say, add something to R4K so that, if somebody posts on the P.C. there, the result also populates in the P.C. here, for example?
  • Stan 286XT
    Whot is the world record of DEFAULT.TRK?
  • Alan Rotoi
    @Stan 30.35 by Renato Biker.

Oct 5

  • Alan Rotoi
    Happy birthday former champion Akoss!!!
  • Akoss Poo
    Thanks! But I think the former champion is a bit of an overstatement. Only disqualification and top drivers neglecting overall result made me a ZSC champion.

Oct 6

  • Alan Rotoi
    Happy Birthday @Ryoma!! How many cars you have in your Stunts garage? ^_^.
  • KyLiE
    Yes, happy birthday @Ryoma!
  • Ryoma
    Thank you, about 81 for now ans 2 in project...but I lost motivation.

Oct 7

  • Cas
    Happy birthday, Ryoma! And happy birthday, Akoss Poo!

Oct 8

  • Renato Biker
    Thank you dreadnaut and Alan Rotoi for the congratulations on my birthday, at 17th september.
  • Alan Rotoi
    Hey! Welcome back! It would be great to have you here again participating and racing too! It would be interesting to make you an interview about your racing career.

  • Marco
    Hi my friends ... sorry , i'm super busy but always think to you !!! Wow Alan , what an unbelievable championship are you doing ? I can see that Ryoma is producing cars continuosly...this is italian style :smiley: i have some question for you, since i left the pro competition here , I'm using 4d sports driving to avoid that "turn left" grip bug that sounds terrible to me. Unfortunately there's the 10 minutes problem. Have you found a way to solve the turn left bug on stunts or the 10 minutes failure on 4d sports driving ? Second thing , I decided to chose my 32 favourite cars and i have created my nice version because there are too many. I could not continue to follow Ryoma because of too many updates and it was not confortable any time look for any cars update. You must be smarter and to create single folder with maybe 10 cars each one ready to be loaded on a Stunts version. Then update those files
  • Ryoma
    @Marco nowdays I have only one project left. The all cars are finished and I will not modify them anymore.
  • Frieshansen
    Have just registered and would like to say hello to everyone. I played stunts a lot in my childhood (must have been around 93). Later only every now and then. Since 2008 or so (found "stunts_ZakStunts_Archive07.zip" on my drive a few day ago :smiley: ) I know ZakStunts and rarely took a look at the current competition and the amazing replays. In the last few days I played the current round and will now submit it (please don´t expect something special). First with the Audi but tried the LM002 today and the corrected time was a little better. Many greetings to all!
  • Ryoma
    Welcome @Frieshansen Don't hesitate to register on the forum, you will find almost 100 news cars.
  • Frieshansen
    Thanks for the welcome @Ryoma. 100 new cars is huge! Definitly will take a look.
  • Stan 286XT
    I foun on ebay 4d sport driving big box+2 floppys slod I miss ugh!!
  • Cas
    Welcome, @Frieshansen! Definitely do join us on the forum. Also, you're invited to http://www.raceforkicks.com for some more racing... because two tournaments are better than just one :cheesy:
  • Frieshansen
    Hi @Cas and thanks for the welcome! I have registered to the forum in the meantime. Will have a look at Race for Kicks. But to be honest, I´m happy if I find the time for the races here regulary.
  • dreadnaut
    Hello @Frieshansen, and welcome! I have approved your Forum account, and I see you have already spotted the Amateur scoreboard :smiley: Hope you'll enjoy the competition, have fun!
  • Frieshansen
    Thanks for the fast approving, the nice welcome and the time and work you´re investing for this community @dreadnaut.

  • Marco
    Hi Ryoma, your GAR lap is not valid because you completely exited the road surface at minute 2:36. Please check the replay .
  • Marco
    Hi Ryoma, your GAR lap is not valid because you completely exited the road surface at minute 2:36. Please check the replay .
  • Ryoma
    @Marco ok thanks. Don't worry, I have another one more faster in stock.
  • Ryoma
    @Marco but not forget we don't boxing in the same category. There is no glory to win without danger.
  • Marco
    Oh wow, there's ZAPPER this year !? I love you man
  • Ryoma
    Wow @Frieshansen, you are fast !!!!
  • Frieshansen
    Spent hours and lots of replays. Naturally I want to show my best side in my first race :smiley:
  • Alan Rotoi
    Hi! A quick view of the video about the new police car!

Oct 11

  • Stan 286XT
    This is not the Police car of Test driveII the duel!!!!
  • KyLiE
    Welcome @Frieshansen! Your times are impressive for your first race. @Alan, I love the video! :smiley:
  • Alan Rotoi
    Yep Stan, the one from Test Drive II & The duel is a Ford LTD Crown Victoria. I plan to build it too. :wink: In fact I plan to build some tunned utilitary cars.
  • Duplode
    Welcome to ZakStunts, @Frieshansen! And it's always good to see Marco and Renato around :smiley:
    Audi 1:25.62
  • Frieshansen
    Thanks for the welcome @KyLiE and @Duplode - I'm looking forward to see your replay. No idea where I should take over 30 seconds :smiley: I´ve viewed a few older replays. @Alan Rotoi seems to be unreachable. Outstanding!
  • Daniel3D
    @Frieshansen, you have set a pretty decent time, so I wouldn't worry much about the top of the scoreboard. They have been at it for many years. quite possibly with skill build on the wear of their keyboards and the calluses on their fingers.
  • Frieshansen
    @Daniel3D yeah, I´m very happy to have got this position. Will still try to get a few seconds out :smiley: Is really fun to work on. Just learned an important lesson: Be very careful not to choose "Re-Start Driving" instead of "Continue Driving" in the replay when doing an race - especially not shortly before the finish line. 🤦
  • dreadnaut
    Ah, the dreaded "Re-Start Driving" 😱 All I can say, save often!
    Audi 1:32.61

Oct 12

  • Ryoma
    Oooppps I made a mistake, my last time is not a GAR time. Sorry.
  • dreadnaut
    Fixed, no problem 👍 Almost there catching up with @Frieshansen!
  • Ryoma
    Welcome @Heretic to the Jungle Amateur league
  • Ryoma
    I am sure that the Delta is under estimated for this track
    Lancia 1:48.60
  • dreadnaut
    Delta and Quattro are really close in terms of behaviour and max speed. I think the bonus is what makes one better than the other on this track.
  • Alan Rotoi
    I like Lancia. It is one of the best cars of the game because it's full of surprises. I think Audi is slighty faster plus the extra bonus this month makes a better option.

Oct 13

  • Alan Rotoi
    I wonder where is @KyLiE this race
  • Ryoma
    Miss some comment because we have a good duel between the two first guys.
  • Stan 286XT
    I read an 4dsd manual bb10 11 can run on a tandy1000 I understood a 8088 640KB RAM were I can found on you tube a pc xt 8086 run bb10 11?
  • Frieshansen
    Hi @Stan. I assume that it needs an Tandy with at least an 286. Tried it quickly in Mame with an Tandy 1000 SX (8088 4.77 MHz) and it didn´t run.
  • Stan 286XT
    I read right tandy1000 8086 8mhz(NEC V30) 640kb; ram is avable stunt floppy 360kb version how fine run ?can see on you tube?
  • Frieshansen
    Find that very interesting @Stan. Do you have a link where you got the information from? I hardly know anything about the V30 (especially not in a tandy). But I would like to try that out - love that kind of things :smiley:. The forum is probably a better place in case I find out something.

Oct 14

  • Duplode
    @Ryoma On our duel: this will likely be the title deciding race; it behooves us to provide a spectacle fitting the occasion :wink:

  • Frieshansen
    @Stan you can find a great collection of different Images from Stunts and 4DSD here: http://www.goodolddays.net/diskimages/id%2C1354/ Get it here (4 x 5.25" DS DD (360kB)): https://archive.org/details/001355-Stunts Used them yesterday a lot to verify that Stunts is not running on an 8088. For that I used mostly PCem - really great Emulator, but unfortunaly doesn´t support the NEC V30 (and the author stopped developing it this year).
  • Ryoma
    Why @Marco ask the question of the RH on GAR mode. I mean how to detect the use of Advanced Replay Handling ? bernie3.gif
  • Smrtka
    Hey, guys! I´ve not been online for long time - you know - a lot of work, a lot of time with family, ... Everything is more important than active playing just right now :-/ But anyway - In my Reaper´s hearth I´m still with you and with this great game. Maybe next year I´ll be back - with some GAR races (because "standard" games I´m out of chance :-D ). Hopefully next year will be better.... Let me wish the best to all this great comunity. Reaper

  • dreadnaut
    Hi @Smrtka, nice to see you around! Life and family and work do require some attention, but don't worry, we'll be here when you have time :wink: Also check the next "Amateur" scoreboard, it might feel more comfortable to race there!
  • dreadnaut
    Ooooh, just noticed that @Ryoma has taken the lead of the Amateur board! While at the top of the main table, @Zapper is nearing podium times, and the match for LTB hours has closed: @Duplode managed to overtake @AlanRotoi, who gained only one bonus point on this track. We are getting close to the end of the season, and the battle is heating up :smiley:
  • dreadnaut
    I would also remind recent starts that you can join or create a team at any time of the year! Teams are great for learning, and simply having more fun.
  • dreadnaut
    By the way @Alan, are we restarting MeganiuM next season? :smiley:
  • Overdrijf
    Stupid system. It's not Green/Brown, it's Zakspeed colors.
  • Alan Rotoi
    @dreadnaut definitely yes! Also we need strong school teams if we want a new generation of racers!
  • afullo
    By the way, we may fine-tune the rule for which, if a team is founded during the season, or a new member joins, all the previous results count for the year. It could make sense until some point, thereafter it would be not particularly significant of the real teamplay...
  • dreadnaut
    @afullo that happens so rarely, I have never seen it being a problem. It'll be far more complicated to update the code though, so I would leave it as it is :cheesy:
  • dreadnaut
    In other news, I'll be away camping tomorrow (🌧), so someone else will have to publish quiet replays 🙏

Oct 16

  • Alan Rotoi
    Oh! And what about the new track?
  • dreadnaut
    I'll be back on Sunday, do not fear!
  • dreadnaut
    In the meanwhile, @everyone, we are looking for feedback for next season's rules! ⭐ Cars and rules for 2022

    As in the GAR style, i have recorded the fastest lap if you want to see it. I was lucky at the end with a very good entrance on the 360°
    Audi 1:53.85
  • afullo
    @dreadnaut: I imagine it would be difficult in terms of code update, I meant more a sort of "officiality", as for example in the history of the competition on the wiki it would show...
  • CTG
    Last day of the race... Hmmm...
  • Ryoma
    @Stan Can I understand that you are very happy with the FIAT 131 Abarth ?
  • Zapper
    At last a GAR lap. This AUDI is full of surprises. @Marco I guess it'a valid one :wink:

    Hey guys. I just made a car collection and realised that I have 108 cars including the original. But I know that I miss the last two. That makes 110. Ten times the original amount. Just wanted to let you know.
  • Alan Rotoi
    @Daniel3D Nice! Would you publish the list? I think we need an update of all the car list known.
  • Daniel3D
    @alan Sure I can. Car Creation Wishlist I'm just a collector. But I needed some content to test Garage tools.

  • Overdrijf
    Nice, 110 cars, 99 custom ones. Makes me want to restart the DAF Siluro project, to contribute a little more. (Note: Currently not up to it, and I would probably need to visit the car in its museum home to get a good full look at the dashboard. So more of a "some day" project.)

Oct 17

  • Duplode
    Okay, quiet replays published!
  • Alan Rotoi
    Wow congrats @Duplode ! You didn't need fancy tricks to win :cheesy:. You just drove like a pro.
  • Overdrijf
    Ooh, nice, the newbie league is back. :wink:
  • Alan Rotoi
    I guess REAL score is messed up. According to my calculations Duplode is 82, dreadnaut 45, Alan Rotoi 93, Zapper 52, KyLiE 62, Overdrijf 58, Heretic 32... etc.
  • KyLiE
    Congratulations to @Duplode, @Alan and @dreadnaut! :smiley: Also, some impressive last-minute entries in the GAR competition.
  • Duplode
    Thank you! @Alan Indeed; it looks like the calculation is currently subtracting the two worst results and the best one, rather than the three worst ones.
  • Ryoma
    @Overdrijf thanks to the new Amateur league in fact :wink:

    Very hard the new track....
  • Overdrijf
    Doing an early lap, for a change. Scouting for Duplode of course, he's gonna get just so many LTB this month.
    Mercedes DTM 1:26.04
  • dreadnaut
    @Alan, @Duplode: indeed something was wrong with the REAL calculation with less than 12 races completed; should be fixed now. It did not affect final results. Note that we are now in a new race, so numbers are different from the ones you saw yesterday.
  • Daniel3D
    @Ryoma. I first made a GAR possible track and then added to it. I try to make it challenging. I hope there are some elements the top drivers can chew on a bit.

    👋 I have closed the Permanent Competition, and moved it under the archives for 2002, the year when Zak started it. It hasn't aged well, and no replays are available. If we'll bring it back, it will be with a different format.
  • Alan Rotoi
    You did the right thing. I guess in those pre-golden age times everything has more individual perspective than a community perspective. Then in 2002-2003 it started to change. Now we are heading a new Stunts Community era. A future permanent competition with the original tracks must have public replays.
  • afullo
    As far as I remember, there were difficulties in keeping it also because the replays were forwarded, rather than to this site, to a mailbox of Zak which has been not checked regularly for years.
  • Second last, driving fast!

    October is here, and the end of the 2021 season is closing in. It's been a busy mid-year, let's see where we are!

    The scoreboard

    With Looping Warriors taking a step back from the competition after spring, we've have seen an impressive fight between Alan Rotoi, clawing for every leading-time hour under the sun, and Duplode, the current ZakStunts champion, racing somehow defensively. The result, with two tracks left in play, is Alan leading by 18 points, buoyed by eleven LTB points—an extra race by themselves. Is math on his side, and his position unassailable?

    Further down the table we find another duo: KyLiE and Overdrijf are racing for the third position. There's a few points between them, but drop the worst three results and everything is still on the table. Will KyLiE manage is 5-point lead, or will Overdrijf overtake him in this last two months?

    Closing the top-6 is Zapper: a hero for many as the designer of the Ferrari F40 and the early tuned cars, this year he decided to join us and burn some rubber on the tarmac. And what a season!

    Looking instead at the Newbie championship, we have KyLiE and Zapper in the lead. But the real competition is happening behind them, between Igor and Ryoma, Daniel3D and Frieshansen. Low participation in the past months makes things a bit uncertain, but we'll see how these last two tracks develop.

    The format

    End of season is always a moment of retrospection, and plans for next year. Right now we are discussing possible rule changes for 2022, and all feedback is welcome!

    We are also trialling a new Amateur competition to replace the "Newbie" one, with slightly different criteria. Too early to have any results, but I'm looking forward to seeing it in full action next year.

    Lastly, we bid (temporary?) farewell to the Permanent Competition. Started in 2002, it included the original Stunts tracks, plus a "closed" version surrounded by water. Participation stopped about a decade ago, and no old replays are available, so it now belongs to the archives.

    Anyway, two tracks left! Go download Daniel3D's Crazy Eight, and send us your lap. Fast, slow, entirely in first gear? we want to see it!

  • Ryoma
    @Stan why don't you register you as amateur ? The same for @afullo ?
  • Ryoma
    Is there an issue with the BMW ? The graph is red but the bonus is 2% or -2%??
  • Stan 286XT
    Hello John Stallin we are on 2021 season; were are Cherry and Helen? HOW PRETTY THEY ARE!!!!!!!
  • afullo
    @Ryoma: I recently discussed the matter on the forum, it is not clear whether I have to be considered an amateur or not. About the bonus, it is positive, I guess that simply the absolute value of the natural bonus is graphically summed with the modificator for this race, so the real bonus is the difference between the green segment and the red one.
  • dreadnaut
    Yep, that chart still has trouble with some of the combinations of bonuses, in particular negative ones. The numbers are correct though!
  • Ryoma
    @afullo I think you can drive in amateur league.

    Cool video! All I'm missing in it is the truck jumping over the "opponent car" map element. :wink:
  • Overdrijf
    What I think is weird in relation to the car coefficient graphic is how much longer the Indy's -38% bar is compared to the Trueno's +36% bar.
  • Alan Rotoi
    Yeees! That would be fun haha! I'll add it in the next video :cheesy:
  • Renato Biker
    Alan Rotoi, sorry for the delay. How will be the interview? Well, as I will forget to come back here soon, send me a whatsapp or e-mail: [removed and passed to Alan via pm]
  • Renato Biker
    Hey Duplode!

Oct 21

  • Duplode
    Olá, Renato! 👋
  • Alan Rotoi
    Thank you @Renato ! I'll write you soon!
  • Daniel3D
    Good to hear that you guys like the track. It has some compromises the my original plan. So expect version 2.0 next season. It will be called ¡!-infinity-!¡
  • Alan Rotoi
    I made another video. A comparison of the last race top 2 replays (Duplode's and mine). Oh and sorry for the pc speaker sound. I forgot to switch to Soundblaster for the video. Enjoy! https://www.instagram.com/tv/CVS6dYcgsRQ/?utm_medium=copy_link
  • Ryoma
    Impressive your skill.... I don't understand how you turn at 120mph without under or oversteer....
  • Alan Rotoi
    I think in this case is about the car. Sometimes custom cars have those unexpected improvements that you won't see in the original pack.

Oct 22

  • Ryoma
    @Alan Rotoi but it's the Audi :huh?:
  • Overdrijf
    One thing you can do to get better at cornering is redriving corners a lot. Find a good section break/point where you compare your times a few elements after a corner or corner combination, then try to get a replay with the fastest time. Corners are tricky and deceptively realistic (by Stunts standards). You lose time by getting your entry speed wrong and by getting your initial line wrong. If you have to brake during a corner or if you have to steer less to widen your line because you're going off track on the inside you're probably not getting a fast time. Though that is not to say you should never reset to a point inside the corner, the exact steering key presses matter a lot as well. Try to see where you start slipping and when you need to release and repress the steering (and just sometimes even countersteer for the shortest possible moment) to tag a great finish onto a good start. I'm not nearly as good at corners as someone like Duplode is, but this is what I did to improve. My "let's just try it for a hour" replays in particular have gotten a lot more competitive.
  • Stan 286XT
    Stunt is more fast with a full 486 Isa PCI or VESA?
  • Alan Rotoi
    @Ryoma Oh I thought you were talking about current track. Then It's as Overdrijf said. Compare your own times using a section system trying to save time in every section.
  • Stan 286XT
    Amstrad pc 1640 is 8Mhz how fine can run stunt? I found this in internet
  • Stan 286XT
    2016 gone whit FIAT 131 ABARTH!!!
  • Stan 286XT
    The amstrad PC 1640 upgraded NEC V30+fpu 8087 is more fast of a 286 8Mhz I think terrible were I can se a pc xt+fpu run stunt?
  • Frieshansen
    @Stan Stunts actually runs on an 8086 - just created this video: I didn't think stunts would run on this machine. Everyone who is looking for a minimum frame rate: your search is over :smiley:
  • afullo
    Well, that's only 50% brilliant. This would be a 100% :cheesy:

Oct 23

  • Alan Rotoi
    @Frieshansen Kinda embarrassing but that's the same sound I use for racing :cheesy: About graphics, how to display Hercules graphics in black/white instead of cyan/fuchsia?
  • Stan 286XT
    However in an IBM PS\2 model 25 is not avable a desktop puplishing but word lode runner...and Stunt whit minimun frame rate. A pc Intel 80286 is an ather planet!!!!!
  • Daniel3D
    @Frieshansen, the recompiled version of stunts uses less system resources when the game starts. Could you try it in emulation. It doesn't support Hercules graphics yet but it support EGA, CGA and Tandy. You can find the zip with the game here. https://mega.nz/folder/JM8HQI5a#mH5ZBNwXC0eEBmockWo50A # information about it here:Stunts 1.1 Mod 1.0 | A new original | an other STUNTS 30 years edition.

Oct 24

  • Ryoma
    How you succeed to pass throw the loop ? I tried a lot and d'ailes the same numbers...
  • dreadnaut
    @Ryoma there is a minimum speed for the trick (~150mph), and you also need to aim straight at the base of the loop. Alignment can be difficult because the loop bends left at the start, messing up the frame of reference. More details: Stunts Wiki: Loop
  • Frieshansen
    @Alan please enjoy your replay from C243 in it´s full Hercules Graphics Glory: I like the racing sound from the PC Speaker, but find the music a bit intrusive in the long run. I´m always playing with SB-Sound. Tried also MT32 but didn't convince me. @afullo :smiley: How about another level deeper. The Stunts Card-Game: with cards to lay out the course and tin figures as cars. For movement you´ve to roll the dice. @Daniel3D I am very happy to make a video with this Mod the next few days. Maybe a comparison next to the original or something in the direction - let's see.
  • Alan Rotoi
    @Frieshansen I'm going to cry!! Is it possible to emulate only the graphic card?
  • Frieshansen
    @Alan I used PCem for Emulation - there you can define whole Systems. It´s more accurate but also more complicated than DOSBox. You can also get this graphic in DOSBox by adding (or changing) the line "machine=hercules" in the dosbox.conf. Please let me know if I can help somewhere. Thanks for the subscription!
  • afullo
    @Frieshansen: in fact, the community in the past tried to bring some role-playing elements to the game, albeit by running it "usually": Concept idea and W.I.P.
  • Stan 286XT
    MS-DOS3.30 for 286 is stable and run fine!
  • Stan 286XT
    For 2022 rules we can use FERRARI F40!!!!
  • dreadnaut
    @Stan286XT - We just took it out of rotation last year! We'll probably use one or two of Ryoma's new cars instead.
  • Duplode
    While I think it makes sense to keep the F40 out of rotation for another year, I'd like to see it return in 2023. It's a fine car indeed :smiley:
  • Stan 286XT
    But here tere is a .TRK usable for all car if you wont an INDY you hove choice to go to RACE FOR KICKS tere is olso stunt.exe!
  • Stan 286XT
    2015 gone with FIAT 131 ABARTH
  • Duplode
    The new RPLInfo preview on the replay submission page is pretty nice!
    Mercedes DTM 1:15.90
  • Overdrijf
    Hey, nice, the car coefficient bars have been changed. We should complain about things more often. :cheesy:
  • dreadnaut
    @Overdrijf, you should, otherwise nothing changes! @Duplode yes! a small thing, but it works well ✨

Oct 25

  • Shoegazing Leo
    FIAT 131 ABARTH... Simpson... Somebody should make a special paint based of this pun.
  • Ryoma
    Ah!!! @Alan Rotoi and @Duplode start their duel!!! @leo it will difficult, a paint job is not a BMP on a shape (texture)...it's the shape, and I think the FIAT 131 is at the limit of vertices (as usual.....)
  • Stan 286XT
    Yes Fiat 131ABARTH is vry Beutifoul!!!!
  • Stan 286XT
    2014 gone whit FIAT 131ABARTH!!!
  • Duplode
    The Melange indeed is a wonderful car :smiley:
    Melange 1:09.44

Oct 26

  • Alan Rotoi
    What a nice start that magic carpet. And the trick after the pipe... I saw it somewhere :cheesy: That's the good of this game, nobody owns a trick as soon as it is published. About Melange I don't know why it's so prone to magic carpets. When I built it I was adding components like an alchemist and the jar of magic carpets just dropped all over the formula :cheesy:
  • dreadnaut
    Indeed good fun with the Melange!
    Melange 1:41.91
  • Alan Rotoi
    Something like this: 519a040218a.png
  • Duplode
    @AlanRotoi I knew you'd appreciate it; that pipe trick feels very MeganiuM :cheesy: (To everyone else: today's featured classic replay is Ayrton at ZCT085 :wink:)

    Me compré una pieza de colección por Mercado Libre. Un mazo de naipes Súper Triunfo de los 80s, de Motitos. Lo compré porque yo lo tenía de chico y lo vi y quise recuperarlo. Me acordé de la idea de los naipes de Stunts. Estaría buenísimo.
  • Cas
    Hey, I'm getting an error while posting. When I upload the replay, it says: "Error 403 - Sorry, you do not have the require permissions for this operation". Then, I submit, and that works fine.
  • Alan Rotoi
    Ooh! I forgot everything about that race :cheesy: I downloaded my replay too and seems I took a different initial path. There is some magic but then it's Ayrton.
  • Alan Rotoi
    About playing cards from Stunts cars is an awesome idea. Look I have some of these decks when I was a kid. What about something like this? https://www.retrocromy.com.ar/cromy/autos-turbo-match4/

  • Frieshansen
    @Alan ah, the Stunts-Quartet - very nice. That would also be easier than implementing my idea. Originally I was thinking of something more complicated. Playing-Cards with individual parts on each of them like the tiles in the track editor to lay out the course and dice like in Monopoly to move on. Maybe cards with random events, like a magic carpet or whether you can get straight through the slalom. @Marco although I don't know you, I still want to wish you a happy birthday!
  • Akoss Poo
    Finally, a good track.
    Melange 1:16.51
  • Overdrijf
    @Frieshansen: Do you happen to know the game Saboteur? (It's about gnomes mining towards gold, it's good.) I think an idea like that could actually work... You play a track element one by one until the track is completed (closed circle) or you run out of cards or spaces on the board. (Maybe a 7x7 board with the start in the center or 8x8? That would leave the tracks looking a bit like Quarantine Rooms... QR (2020-03-29) Also maybe have some rules to try and prevent too many uncompleted tracks?) You can probably build both in front of the start/finish and behind it, to prevent something like a ramped road from making everyone unable to play, if those are used at all. But everyone has a secret identity, and every identity has its own scoring method for which kinds of tracks they like. Like Otto gets penalties for elevated and aerial Stunts, Skid gets penalties for flat tracks, Helen scores on slaloms and gets penalties for boulevards. Instead of laying a card as a tile you can maybe play certain cards that hinder or help others (Fence slide: you cannot lay road pieces until the track hits the outer layer of tiles; Powergear: play 2 cards on your next turn), but you don't know which identity they have, so you have to guess by what they seem to be doing. If you're Otto, too many loops are going up and you think you know who Bernie is, help them make the track more boring. That would be a very different spin on the Car cards! concept from what I experimented with before.
  • dreadnaut
    Woooo, Looping Warriors on the track! Just missing @CTG now :smiley:
  • Daniel3D
    When I made the track I planned for the DTM and IMSA cars. That seems to be a good guess. But I really thought a sub minute time would be possible... Or is CTG hiding something :huh?:
  • Shoegazing Leo
    Melange a trois

Oct 28

  • Frieshansen
    @Overdrijf Didn´t know Saboteur but from the pictures on the net I would say this is the right direction. Your ideas are all great and so well thought out. Unfortunately I don't have the time to work on this - that would be a cool project! I didn't know your cards project either. A lot has already been gathered here. Maybe I can contribute something there. Really awesome what's going on here!
  • dreadnaut
    We're out of public days, and Duplode is getting closer to his first LTB point of the race 🥁 Is Alan going to stop him, and reveal his hand? Or let him have a point, then overtake him for the remaining hours? We'll know in the next hours!

Oct 29

  • afullo
    Sorry for being late, but happy birthday, Marco! Fun fact: "stunt" means "hour" in a dialect spoken only in Timau, a little Italian village very near to the Austrian border (municipality of Paluzza, province of Udine), founded during Middle Ages by miners native to Carinthia. This is by all chance a distortion of the standard German "stunde", influenced by both isolation (the dialect includes several archaisms) and languages from the southern side of the Alps (not only standard Italian, but also other broader languages such as Friulian).

    @afullo "The Stunts stunt" would be a fine name for a Stunts podcast! @ShoegazingLeo Great job on taking that other red-black team down a peg :cheesy:
  • Stan 286XT
    PLS a tecnik question: Stunt think in 8086 real mode?

    Yep, Stunts runs in real mode.

  • Overdrijf
    @Frieshansen: I currently have your whole Stunts themed boardgame where you lay track tiles to create a track and then race around on it idea stuck in my head. I'm not saying it will lead to anything, because I am if anything busier than I was when I abandoned/shelved my previous few unfinished Stunts projects, but if it does by chance lead to anything, can I share it with the community? Asking because I got the idea from you and all. If you'd rather work the concept out yourself I understand.
  • Frieshansen
    @Overdrijf I would be very happy if you do something with the idea. Maybe I can contribute something from time to time.
  • Stan 286XT
    I have got this idea! at home I have a lot of old computer buy in year were sold old thing cheap every month I change pc for ZTC.TRK and I can use all!
