Welcome @Tjin and @Spoonboy! It is always nice to see racers arrive to the community. :-) I suggest reading the Newbie guide, and in particular the section about shortcuts and replay handling, https://zak.stunts.hu/index.php?page=newbie-guide. Let me (us) know if you need any help. Last but not least, have fun!
I suggest watching the Stunts Pro Academy episodes on our Stunts Retro Game Youtube channel. No reason. 8)
chatbox anyone for the live reveal?
Hi everyone! Thanks for all the warm welcomes!
Looking forward to the next track.
It doesn't matter, but I just tried to upload a (slightly faster) lap, but it said it was short and ended in a crash. This wasn't how it was saved in-game. It may have been rewound from a save that did?
Am I doing RH incorrectly? Not a problem, as I don't think it was fast enough to improve my leaderboard position :,) But good to know for the future.
Hi @Spoonboy! The most common cause of that issue is pressing Esc after crossing the finish line -- you have to wait the extra final second go through and let the game load the evaluation screen on its own. In some very rare circumstances, the game will cut the final frame on its own, which will also confuse the validator in the site. Either way, if you still have the RPL around, continuing the lap and redriving the final second or so should be enough to fix it.
@Daniel3D - I can be here on chat for the race close!
Thanks Duplode - that seems to have worked!
Still same position but after a week of learning the moves, it's the best I could get out of this track!
1) Tijn and I are both with the DOS Game Club podcast (dosgameclub.com). How can we start our own team?
2) DGC is playing Stunts this month, in order to record our next episode. We've been amazed by the communities thriving around this great game, and so far we've begun racing in Zakstunts/Race for Kicks. Could anyone from the Zak/R4K communities be a guest for the recording? We could really use an expert to help explain the game and how it has evolved!
I think you can find a few volunteers for that around here, each with their own specialties. If you happen to read this within the next hour, there will be people in the chat (left side mnenu, under info) around 24:00 for the race deadline. They can tell you loads about who to ask for what.
Quiet replays published!
@Spoonboy - You can count on me about Race For Kicks, tools development for Stunts, organisation of live races and participation in general since 2005 or so. Not so good as a racer, or to represent ZakStunts, which has been running since 2001, or about car making. Other folks will be much better to volunteer for those topics!
@Spoonboy, I run Race For Kicks along with Cas and I've been involved in many aspects of the Stunts community, including the creation of custom cars. I'd be honoured to be a guest on your podcast! Please feel free to contact me via my website: www.markceccato.com
Congratulations @Argammon, and @ErikBarros as well! Quite a bit of close racing in the quiet days this round.
Congratulations @Argammon and @Duplode! I've just watched your replays and they're quite impressive!
Thanks @KyLiE -- and well done on a second consecutive podium!
@Spoonboy (1) Great to hear about the team! I believe dreadnaut will register it on the database at the earliest opportunity. The one thing he'll likely ask you is a logo to be displayed on the teams page. It's optional, but you might also want to announce it at the Teams for 2023 forum thread. (2) Awesome! As Overdrijf said, there are quite a few people here who'd be able to contribute plenty. I'll be glad to help in any way I can, be it by being on the recording, or with any extra material that might come in handy -- just let us know what you'll need. (Also, feel free to PM me on the Forum, and, if you find that'll be helpful, to start a thread about it.)
What happened to @Alan Rotoi ?
Thank you all for your congratulations. My congrats go to Duplode, Kylie, Erik Barros, and everyone else who produced a strong lap.
I think most of us have been struggling a bit with the Mclaren's sensitive handling.Böff dampening: < 1dB
Scoreboard confirmed! Well done @Argammon, @Duplode and @KyLiE. And congratulations to @Erik, @Ryoma and @Mark in the Amateur League 🏆
And the new track is up! Welcome to "Secret Level", by @AlanRotoi
Now that the track is no longer kept secret, should we rename it?
Opening the game
Hello! Posting my first attempt
This time ZTC263.png I print 600DPI!!!!!
I like this kind of track with a lot of rhythm!
5 stars circuit I love it
Thank you! I'm glad to know you like it.
Lemme join you with a LM002 ride
Cool! I don't have time for a decent lap even for my own track so I'll race some laps with different cars. Car podiums rules!
Sorry @AlanRotoi but this track is really a masterpiece !!!
Another Dos Game Club member joining in the fun, add me to the team. Also.. got you SpoonBoy.
Hello @dreadnaut! Yes, I want, but how I can request merging my accounts? Because on the old one I forgot the e-mail and password, so I made a new one. Also, merging my accounts does have some risks?
It's done Login with your original @Alecu account, and your new password.
Thanks @dreadnaut for doing this! It is now working.
New custom cars: Muscle Cars pack released!! Dodge Charger, Plymouth Superbird and Pontiac GTO !!! Download them here: Muscle Cars pack
Now, Muscle Cars pack release!!
Excellent video! You nailed it putting Skid in the Charger!
There's an interesting duel going on between @Ryoma and @ErikBarros, with alternative cars, and really close lap times!
@dreadnaut yes but @Erikbarros is very very strong....
And so it seems that @Argammon and I will have to settle for a draw on LTB. This has been an intense battle!
I appreciate the compliment @Ryoma. but I'm more stubborn than good, the last few live races I've performed quite poorly, it takes me a lot of time and RH to get good times.
@Ryoma by the way, your cars are magnificent, I know that you have considerations about the use of your cars in competitions. but about the live races? Would you find it inappropriate to use any of your cars?
@ErikBarros your progress curve is better than mine. Concerning my cars, you were not here last year but my answer is always NO!
Hello everyone! First time submitting a time here. I hadn't played this game in nearly 30 years and recently installed it on MiSTer FPGA's 486 core. I'm playing this with a Thrustmaster T300RS wheel/pedals setup. Replay is a straight shot non-segmented run, as I would prefer to play that way.
A YT video showing how the game runs with wheel/pedals will be posted soon at youtube.com/MiSTerWalrusFPGA, though you can see the unlisted video here when its done processing if you'd like (it's the last track played):
Love that you all are keeping this game going strong here, after so many years. Cheers!
Hello and welcome, @MWalrus! That's a very nice video, and the setup looks glorious! It put me in the mood for driving, so here's a NoRH Pantera ride.
Welcome @MWalrus - awesome setup! And driven stylishly with gloves 👍
Thanks for the welcome everyone
Added a description to the video I posted before, with all my findings regarding Stunts version differences, MT-32 music issues, and wheel configuration. I only owned the original 1.0 release when it came out and had no idea about the follow-up releases until now. Signed up at raceforkicks also and hopefully will have time to submit a score for the current track being played there!
Thanks for the invite to raceforkicks, KyLiE! Just posted my first submission there and the track was great! First time using one of the DTM cars also and they are super fun! Cheers
There are more replays sent in 2023 than in the whole previous season!
You kicked me out of the team, @ShoegazingLeo? 🥺
Welcome, @MWalrus! And it's nice that you have joined us at Race For Kicks too. We'll have another race at the beginning of next month. I agree that's a great setup the one you have. I'd like to have something like that to play Stunts myself.
@dstien you still welcome. I didn't kicked anyone. You can return if you want. The doors are open.
Zakstunts teams are added manually to the site for every season. Due to this it's often only the active-ish racers that get named. That being said: mr. Stressed @dstien is back! A glorious day!
Welcome back to ZakStunts, @dstien!! You're now on the 2023 Slowdrive roster in the database. (I didn't have to do anything on the forum, as you already had access to the subforum.)
Welcome back, @dstien!
Happy Birthday, Leo! 🎉
Feliz aniversário, @ShoegazingLeo!
Feliz cumpleaños!! You always be @LeoRamone for me 😁
Happy Birthday @ShoegazingLeo!
Happy birthday, captain Leo! Nice to see so many new names here. @MWalrus, that's a really slick setup!
