  • Duplode
    Thank you all! Here is my opener for the new track.
    Lambo 1:05.16
  • Stan 286XT
    This .trk have an Exciting visual!!!!!!
  • HunterBoy344
    I’ve decided: the first public play test for multiplayer Stunts will happen on Wednesday, August 3 2022 from 2-3 PM EST. However, I need some kind of live chat to announce the server address when it’s time for the test, and of course to allow players to communicate. I’ve heard discussion of live chats built into the forum; would that be possible for this event?
  • HunterBoy344
    Also, is the time I set reasonable? I don’t want people to miss out because of time zone issues…
  • Cas
    @HunterBoy344: You cat get to the online chat here, from the website menu on the left, following the "Chat" link. The user name and password are the same as those of the forum. 3pm is OK for most of us, but not for Australia, especially during business days. We organise live races a few times a year and we typically do noon UTC or near. When we do organise, we tend to be about five people (although last time was very successful, with eight participants), but the more in advance it is planned, the better the results. I personally won't be able to participate because the website runs super slow in my computer, about 1 frame per second.
  • HunterBoy344
    3 PM EST or UTC? @Cas

Aug 2

  • Cas
    I mean your 3pm, EST, since you suggested it
  • HunterBoy344
    Okay, that sounds good. 3 PM EST on Wednesday it is! I'll put the server address in the chat and shoutbox when the time comes. Also @Cas, I'm not sure if this will help at all but try a different browser when loading the site. Different browsers act differently so it's possible the lag is just caused by that and not your computer itself. I've already noticed some differences between browsers for certain event listeners on the client webpage, so it's worth a shot!
  • HunterBoy344
    Also, happy birthday @matamo!

Aug 3

  • Overdrijf
    Okay, so that should be 21:00 for Central Europe, or maybe 20:00 is the 3PM included a daylight saving +1 google isn't using. I'm aiming to be there, 4 hours and 13 minutes from now.
  • Daniel3D
    It has been a long time ago that 3 different competition's started on the same day. (Not counting sub boards) and since it is my holiday I will try to participate in all of them, hehe.
  • Overdrijf
    Happy birthday dreadnaut! (And Svenne.)
  • Cas
    Happy birthday, Dreadnaut!.... and Matamo... and Svenne.... Long time no see them
  • HunterBoy344
    Only 10 minutes left until the online Stunts playtest! As a brief reminder, the client site is located at https://stuntsthing.hunterboy344.repl.co, and the server IP will be posted in the chat when the event starts. Can't wait to see how it turns out!
  • HunterBoy344
    The race begins! The server IP is StuntsServer.hunterboy344.repl.co, have fun!
  • dreadnaut
    @Cas @Overdrijf, thank you! Going on holiday tomorrow, see you in ten days or so ?
  • Frieshansen
    Late greetings from me too, @dreadnaut! Have a good rest from the system updates here Smiley
  • Overdrijf
    I ended up forgetting the time and missing the first 45 minutes of the session. I'm impressed with it. I think this is a great addition to our live racing repertoire. For me the big wishlist items would be sound and fullscreen mode (or close to it). And after that maybe the ability to assign certain cars or car restrictions to a race. Thanks for working on this!
  • HunterBoy344
    Oops, double message.
  • dreadnaut
    System updates have not happened yet, are we are waiting for the hosting company to do it Sad Hope they won't suddenly switch things without confirming dates — but I should be able to jump in and fix stuff if necessary.
  • HunterBoy344
    Well, that was a very entertaining race! Thank you for joining, @Overdrijf; your testing was really helpful, even if you arrived late! As promised in the live chat, I have released the client and server on GitHub; the project now also has a name, Stunts Online. Here are the GitHub repo links: https://github.com/HunterBoy344/Stunts-Online-Server https://github.com/HunterBoy344/Stunts-Online-Client
  • afullo
    Happy birthday to @dreadnaut and to the lost pipsqueaks! I was out for dinner, but @Hunterboy344's experiments seem to be a major breakthrough toward playing Stunts as a "modern" multiplayer game (well, maybe not too "modern", without needing commercial subscriptions, and accepting that you do not own the game, but rather the right to play it under the conditions of the producer, and so on...)

Aug 4

  • Duplode
    Happy birthday, @dreadnaut! Unfortunately I wasn't able to attend @Hunterboy344's event today; the project sure looks promising!
  • Alan Rotoi
    Happy birthday @dreadnaut!!

  • HunterBoy344
    Got some great news: Stunts Online v2 is coming soon! Version 2.0 will include several important features and bugfixes! Additionally, I'm completely switching from em-dosbox to another similar system, JS-DOS, which is what allows for awesome new things like audio, mouse support, and possibly even fullscreen to be added to the game. You can try my very early live development version here, though I will push these changes to the normal site when they're finished: https://stuntsjsdostesting.hunterboy344.repl.co
  • Daniel3D
    @hunterboy I tried v2.0 and it is very good. Sound works well, the game runs smoothly and the mouse work's to. A great improvement. Alt-enter crashed it though.
  • HunterBoy344
    Really glad you’re liking it so far @Daniel3D! By the way, I made a minor change to the audio: it’s a little quieter now, since it was really loud before. Did I choose an okay volume, or is it too quiet? The volume was set to 100% before; I changed it to 35%.

Aug 17

  • Daniel3D
    I didn't have a problem with the second at 100%. I can always tune it down if needed and I can set sound volume for my browser specifically. I did start quite loud because I initially didn't hear anything so I turned up the volume, but when I clicked on the game window the sound kicked in.

    Just imagine that "the love kept on running" is a car in powergear. Wink

  • HunterBoy344
    Hey guys! Just wanted to let y'all know that I now have a domain for Stunts Online!! You can now access the latest version, 2.1, at https://stunts.hunterboy344.com. I will also push the changes I introduced in 2.1 to GitHub soon. That's all for now, but I might make a forum post detailing what exactly I've changed. Check back soon!
  • HunterBoy344
    Just posted some patch notes, here's the forum link as always: Working on a pseudo-multiplayer system for Stunts using em-dosbox and WebSockets
  • Stan 286XT
    I have lan card 10 M bit secont not work fine but at dosgamesarchive.com I played stunt fine whith windows xp
  • HunterBoy344
    Using the new file uploader/downloader on Stunts Online, I recorded a record for the latest track and submitted it.

  • Duplode
    I don't think I'll make it to the deadline dash today, sadly -- not only there's a busy day ahead, but also the side effects of the COVID booster I took yesterday are really kicking in this time...
  • dreadnaut
    ? Important ? — Server upgrade on Monday 29 August. Website, forum, and wiki will be unavailable for most of the day. The next race will start on Tuesday.
  • Overdrijf
    Track needs more Jaguar.

  • dreadnaut
    And the race is over, publishing the quiet replays.
  • Heretic
    Wow, corvette was exotic
  • Overdrijf
    We're collectively getting pretty bad at finding the right car. ...Especially if that car is a Corvette driven by Doubleplusspeed.
  • Overdrijf
    Anyway, congratulations guys, well done!
  • Alan Rotoi
    Thank you! Teamwork is the key! Motivation, fun and work! ?
  • KyLiE
    Congratulations to @Alan, @dreadnaut and @Frieshansen! Smiley
  • dreadnaut
    Scoreboard confirmed! Well done DoublePlusSpeed ? — And thank you @KyLiE!
  • dreadnaut
    We'll now take a short technical break, and the next race will start on Tuesday. In the meanwhile, go rate @Daniel3D's ZCT253 Smiley
  • Cas
    Congratulations, guys!
  • Duplode
    Congratulations to Doubleplusspeed! These are some really fun Vette PG replays!

Aug 29

  • Frieshansen
    Thanks for the congratulations!

Aug 30

  • dreadnaut
    Server upgrade ongoing, getting there! The new track is up, so we can test replay uploads, but the race and LTB counter starts at the end of Tuesday.
  • KyLiE
    Testing replay uploads!

  • HunterBoy344
    Testing, testing! Actually, this is a bit of testing-ception, because I'm testing the Stunts Online file upload system while also testing ZakStunts replay uploads! Two birds with one stone?
    Melange 1:53.00 A
  • Alan Rotoi
    Haha cool! Did you like my baby? (Melange) Cheesy
  • HunterBoy344
    The Melange is amazing! I actually like it more than the Indy now, just because it handles so much better. You did a really great job!
  • HunterBoy344
    Something seems to be very wrong with the shoutbox...
  • HunterBoy344
    Never mind, it's fixed!

Aug 31

  • Alan Rotoi
    What a battle for the top! I hope Lambo isn't the car of the month. The anti-pg makes it undesirable.
  • Stan 286XT
    Whit my 586 w98 netscap9 I can't acess site work in progress?
  • Ryoma
    I expect sincerely that you will stop this joke by humilated me and my Stratos. I'm sorry but all the news cars won at the beginning of the season except mine because you gave it an disadvantage bonus (16% when the similar Delta was more and I don't spoke about others cars). I'm very disapointed of what you did and what you said about me and my job. I'm very disguted by your behavior and regret sincerely by authorized you using my car. If I knew, I would said "no". And, can someone can explained why a professional stand in the amateur league. It was not the purpose.....farewell
  • Overdrijf
    What Huh? The Stratos was the main car 2 races ago? Are you actually doing this to make Daniel 3D's message from July 9th seem psychic? Setting car bonuses is hard. And a pro? You mean Frieshansen? A driver who only drove 3 races before this season with his highest position being 7th? How else was he going to be classed for this season? Your best position last year was 6th, with 7 races ran. I don't see a world in which we could have promoted him but not you. But he's been very active this year, founded a team and raced hard. You've sent laps for 3 races so far, and on at least one of those you actually said you were only submitting a time so you could give the map 0 or 1 stars. So that's 2 times you raced with any kind of seriousness. You're honestly giving off the impression that if either you or your car isn't effortlessly winning then everything is bad and we should feel bad. I mean... You know what, farewell. You made a lot of great cars. I will be forever thankful for that, and I will enjoy Stunts more for their addition.
  • Alan Rotoi
    @Stan maybe the site is not compatible with old versions of Netscape. Did you try another explorer?
  • afullo
    @Stan: forum and wiki are still unreachable, if you are meaning those.
  • dreadnaut
    Forum almost there, still need some work to get the attachments to upgrade correctly — they are really important and I want to get them right. Haven't started on the Wiki yet. Website should be all good. It would be useful if you went around and explored a bit, see if anything breaks Smiley
  • Akoss Poo
    No Forum for long long days now...
  • Overdrijf
    Not long days, one really long minute. It says so itself.
  • Akoss Poo
    Well, maybe I'll try this when I speak with my boss about my next holiday. I'm away for several days, but in the end, I ask whether he could consider it as by only being late by a really long minute. Hmmmm? :-)
