  • CTG
    Quiet replay sent! 59.xx!!! :grin: (I won't say the b*** word now.)

Apr 3

  • Alan Rotoi
    I guessed I had the winner way but I just tryied and it's impossible :sad: I think I'll make a normal "non-crazy" replay.
  • Alan Rotoi
    Unless... ^_^
  • Alan Rotoi
    Unless nothing :sad: I couldn't make it. I'll make another normal replay.
  • CTG
    bla bla bla, Mr. 58.xx! :grin:

    Looks at the name, then at the driven time... yup, it's a 1:31.xx :cheesy: Great to see you around, Seeker!

Apr 4

  • Duplode
    I have just driven a GAR 1:31.95, but got here to post it a few seconds after the deadline. Here is a link to it, for what it's worth: ZCT236 - Lightning . At least it wouldn't be a winning replay anymore...
  • dreadnaut
    And time is up! Since I'm around, let's see if there are any quiet replays hiding :smiley:
  • Seeker1982
    thx for the flowers :smiley: Currently my G29 pedals have a warrenty-issue so I could spend some time playing stunts. Also watching Marco's GAR attemps on Facebook got me in the mood for some stunts :cheesy: believe it or not but my fastest GAR-attempt was a 1:30,45, however it was'nt valid due to unintentional cutting the track at the chicanes
  • Duplode
    So I missed one second place by five seconds, and the other one by five hundredths... :roll eyes: Congratulations to Looping Warriors!
  • Overdrijf
    Another month with strong attendance. Unlike Duplode I luckily find myself on the good side of a small difference. Comgratulations to the two warriors. You're going strong this season! Also: welcome Johnny Alaska! Looks like you were new this month and I didn't say hello yet.
  • GTAMan15
    This was a tough track to race on
  • CTG
    Great track & car combo, well-done @AlanRotoi. The race itself was fun, too. Although I'm a bit disappointed because of the low activity in the second half of the race. Nobody challenged my last public replay... :sad:
  • GTAMan15
    Because you are doing a replay which nobody can beat
  • dreadnaut
    Scoreboard confirmed 🏆 Congratulations to CTG, Akoss Poo and Duplode! And thank you, everyone, for making this a great race :smiley:
  • dreadnaut
    And the new track is up, warm up your tires! —But don't forget to rate ZCT236
  • GTAMan15
    Seems like it's a shorter track than the previous
  • GTAMan15
    Interesting racing with the LM002
  • CTG
    @dreadnaut: ZCT256 will be a nice track for sure. :grin:
  • dreadnaut
    @CTG argh, I need to pay attention when I time-travel on Sundays 😅 Fixed now!
  • GTAMan15
    Hey Ryoma, use the car with the most percentages on it. LM002 will get you closer in the leaderboard
  • dreadnaut
    Or not, since the car with the highest bonus is not necessarily the best for the track 🤷‍♀️
  • dreadnaut
    In other news, the coefficients chart now highlights the track author's changes, which apply only to the current race.
  • GTAMan15
    @dreadnaut At this race, LM002 is the best
  • dreadnaut
    We can discuss this again in four weeks time :smiley:
  • Ryoma
    @Gtaman15 ok I try the LM002, but it's like i am a traitor for Ferrari...
  • GTAMan15
    I want some challenge, so I won't upload any other replays during public days
  • Alan Rotoi
    Very nice track!

    Hello @Seeker1982 👋 Nice to see you around!
  • dreadnaut
    Now, if I've tweaked the numbers correctly, this is also a thing.
    Acura 0:51.13
  • dreadnaut
    Mmmh, no. I did not take people who can actually drive the Countach into account, I think 😅
  • Duplode
    There sure are plenty of possibilities!
    Acura 0:43.34
  • Alan Rotoi
    If you reveal the best car it will be hard to me to win. :sad:
  • GTAMan15
    Imagine, if dreadnaut was about to change car percentages at the last day, and so the results would be much worse :tongue:
  • Seeker1982
    and the first GAR-time

    Luckily cars bonuses can't change after the first days :smiley:

    I like the way local car bonuses are displayed! I'll be posting a replay soon
  • dreadnaut
    By the way, welcome to the scoreboard @Ryoma! 🏁
  • Cas
    Starting with a GAR lap
    LM002 1:06.12
  • Cas
    And a free-style one now :smiley:
    LM002 0:50.87
  • Ryoma
    Thx @dreadnaut but I'm better in making car than drive it...
  • Overdrijf
    Pro tip: get enough of your cars accepted into the tournament. Works for me! ;p
  • Overdrijf
    Also: it looks like I didn't check the car creation board for like two weeks and in that time you made like a billion cars. How do you do that? I wouldn't even get the shapes done in that time. Wow. (Okay, you've been there for close to two months, but you've also actually made around 2 billion cars.)

Apr 5

  • Ryoma
    I did only 34 cars....
  • Alan Rotoi
    Please publish the other billion cars too! ^_^
  • KyLiE
    Welcome @Ryoma! Also, it's great to see @Seeker1982 again!
  • Ryoma
    Thanks @Kylie. At all, you are insanely Quick....
  • Overdrijf
    I did 4 (of which 3 with related assets), and 2 unfinished projects. The original developers did 14. The difference between 34 and a billion seems pretty academic. :wink:
  • Ryoma
    The original developper had no Internet and a lack of informations. And not the tools we have now : we can test quickly and modify in game somes values. Now, I make car using blueprint, torque curve and datas like distance braking, 0-60 and 1000 m accélération. It's not the same era. And I made it for free on my free time without click stress.
  • CTG
    Kinda dangerous track. Since I'm a two-hand driver and my left arm is not functioning properly (vaccination side effect), this is a pure right hand try. :cheesy:
    LM002 0:48.98 A
  • Zapper
    First attempt, done! :smiley:
    Trueno 0:52.66 A
  • Zapper
    @Ryoma congrats for your effort on making cars :smiley: It's like a mass production factory! (Caterham Super 7 JPE in "right hand drive" is almost there to join custom car collection)
  • GTAMan15
    We better use Ryoma's cars in 2022 for ZakStunts championship
  • Ryoma
    @Zapper extra for the seven. Carefull with the RHD with the wheel's dot : position in X maxi = 256. Agree with @GTAMan15, I modify sometimes lightly my car so wait next year. Maybe a 90s supercars challenge ? I think I made all the supercars from this Era (Except Yamaha OX99-11...but 400hp...it's useless)
  • GTAMan15
    KITT car already exists, what about a BTTF car? Whatever if it could get its driver back in time or not
  • GTAMan15
    Seems challenging already, but I'm waiting for two weeks to pass
  • Stan 286XT
    MY pc an old 286 have only 640Kb of ram this .trk is very fantasy!Is a .trk not adapt for a necv30!
  • KyLiE
    Nice track @dreadnaut! :smiley:
    LM002 0:44.17
  • dreadnaut
    Thank you, glad you are enjoying it!
  • Ryoma
    34 cars means I have an avantage of 34%? Non?
  • afullo
    @GTAMan15: the issue with the DMC-12 is that, apart from its BTTF appearance, is a quite slow car which I don't know how much could fit well in racing. - @Stan: in case, you can try to deactivate some visual effects.

Apr 6

  • KyLiE
    @afullo, yes, the DeLorean DMC-12 is an iconic car, but it is not known for its engine.
  • Shoegazing Leo

  • GTAMan15
    @afullo The DeLorean DMC-12 max speed is 110 MPH while the Pontiac Firebird Turbo Trans-Am max speed is 139 MPH, not so much difference
  • CTG
    110 mph is barely enough to complete a jump. :roll eyes:
  • Marco
    If you have facebook ... bautiful overtake on the ZCT237 https://www.facebook.com/gaming/MarcoPlaysDosGames/videos/535035887462717/
  • afullo
    KITT has been elevated to a max of 245 MPH thanks to the pursue mode, we would have to invent something similar for the DMC-12, but apart from time travel no particular ability has been seen on-screen. Anyway, of course I would not disprove a "poetic license" in order to have it here with an higher maximum speed than the one in reality...
  • GTAMan15
    Screen colors could change, while traveling through time, or by traveling time over 25 minutes the game wouldn't force you to stop driving
  • Zapper
    If there was a lucky way to enable a "power bug" appearing at 88MPH on DMC-12 it would be an appropriate feature :wink:
  • CTG
    Well, I guess this is the limit of my auto trm lap. (Manual gears will be used after my full recovery from shoulder pain. :cheesy:)
    LM002 0:41.82 A
  • afullo
    Maybe the torque curve can be fine-tuned such that at exactly 88 MPH in a proper gear the car jumps to 245 MPH almost instantaneously, like KITT pursue mode has been devised thanks to the use of a physically unrealistic torque curve...

    @ShoegazingLeo How about a Celta for Stunts? :cheesy:
  • Stan 286XT
    I can't think to afford 70Mph medium whit 8Mhz and 640Kb of Ram

    At long last, LTB +1 :cheesy:

Apr 10

  • Ryoma
    Dodge Stealth R/T Turbo is out!

Apr 11

  • Overdrijf
    Okay, daring prediction: I think we will have mostly red cars on the final scoreboard.
  • GTAMan15
    I knew instantly that LM-002 is the best choice
  • Ryoma
    But it's very hard to follow you.... I'm far far away and really disapointed of my skill....
  • GTAMan15
    Just learn the tricks
  • dreadnaut
    Wow, @GTAMan15, that's not constructive feedback for someone who's frustrated with Stunts. @Ryoma you are actually doing OK! You have tough competition in ZakStunts, and Stunts takes years of practice to "just learn the tricks". A general principle is to try and never lose speed, in particular with slower car like the LM002. You slow down most in the section after the hill jump, and in the bridge corners. Keep speed there and you're bound to shave a couple of seconds off! :smiley:
  • GTAMan15
    @dreadnaut I didn't mean this. All I wanted to say with "Just learn the tricks" is to practice for it as long as Ryoma will be comfortable with them at the end, and will do a very good laptime after some trials. Have I corrected it now?
  • dreadnaut
    That's definitely a positive spin 👍 There is indeed a lot of "keep trying" in Stunts :smiley:
  • Stingray86

  • dreadnaut
    It's tricky though ➰ And I really placed that water in the worst place :cheesy:
    Vette 0:43.70
  • Ryoma
    @dreadnaut thanks for your advices. I dislike these bridges corners.

Apr 12

  • Ryoma
    How you manage the first jump...it's purely random ?
  • dreadnaut
    Surprisingly there is no randomness in Stunts! If you mean the jump over/next to the cork u/d, the trick there is that the road surface extends for a tiny amount outside the walls of the bridge. Landing there with the wheels turning right allows the car to avoid crashing in the wall, and fall back on the road.
  • Ryoma
    Thanks @dreadnaut. For information, I have done the dashboard for the @CTG's Dodge Challenger.

Apr 13

  • Ryoma
    I tried 20 times and failed 20 times... I take really no pleasure...only frustating...it's not my définition of a game
  • dreadnaut
    Yep, that's understandable. The GAR scoreboard might be more interesting for you: no tricks, just driving; the frustration there comes from having to complete the whole lap in one go, without mistakes.
  • GTAMan15
    Congrats Ryoma! You're getting better and better!
  • Ryoma
    Thank GTAMan15 but it's very painfull

Apr 14

  • Overdrijf
    "Surprisingly there is no randomness in Stunts" Well, no true randomness, to expand on this a little. But your jump length for instance can change depending on your exact position in the frame in which you leave a ramp. With a frame being 1/20th of a second, differences in timing of less than that can make a difference. This is why it sometimes pays to just redrive from somewhere inside the last corner when you can't seem to nail a jump, to intentionally mess up the exact timing of it and maybe shorten or lengthen your jump. It's similar to driving through a slalom block or through a loop, those depend on sub-frame timing as well.
  • Alan Rotoi
    @Overdrijf I love Stunts. I can't help it. :cheesy:

Apr 15

  • Alan Rotoi
    There are too many public days...
  • GTAMan15
    2 weeks public days, 2 weeks scoreboard days, and 2 days are quiet
  • Alan Rotoi
    Yep, it would be fine if the public days are for a week or 10 days max. I see positive things for public days: It is a solution for the newbies and who has little time to race. You just copy the best public replays. The negative thing IMHO is that it turns zaks to a replay copying competition. Also it might be killed the teams.
  • dreadnaut
    @Alan We can give it a try for a few races, what about 8 public days?
  • dreadnaut
    However, if I look back many races had public winning replays that no-one managed to "copy". And in the past 5 years only two teams that have closed: MeganiuM and the Yellow Fleas, of which there's only me and you left around. Maybe we should restart together next year! 🚗🚗
