Title: Stunts Olympic Games 2008
Post by: Mark L. Rivers on April 14, 2008, 09:45:32 PM

I’m glad to inform you about a new Stunts event: The Stunts Olympic Games 2008!
Beginning from the 8th June 2008 until the 29 June 2008, SDR will admit the new happening open to all drivers!
The Stunts Olympic Games will be quite different from normal contests where usually drivers have to race as fast as possible. In fact, the Games will include 6 different specialties wherewith drivers will have the possibility to show all their skill, but also their fantasy and their desire to enjoy with their loved game!
Drivers won’t be obliged to take part in all 6 specialties or games. Everyone will have to choose in how many single games he will want to partake.
Every specialty will have an own classification that will include the assignation of the classic medals: gold, silver and bronze. But there will be also a general classification that will award the drivers who will catch the highest number of gold medals. In case of deuce, it will be considered the silver medals, and eventually the bronze medals.
So we will maybe have more single specialty champions and only one global winner. Anyway, the Stunts Olympic Games don’t want to produce tight battles to demonstrate the absolute best driver. Even if every driver will want sure to aim to reach his best as in every normal contest, I hope this event (I repeat, OPEN to all!) could be greeted as a joyful and happy happening, able to arouse something near to the real Olympic spirit!


FORMULA

The Stunts Olympic Games will be articulated in 3 weeks, with two specialties (games) for every week.


GAMES (In alphabetical order)

Crashing - Fastest crash time touching whatever obstacle (Finish pillars, water and terrain excluded).
Flying -Longest aerial time (searching for crazy bugs…).
Jumping - Highest number of jumps in less than 90 seconds.
Powering - Longest Powergear time through a full-obstacle area.
Speeding - Highest speed crashing into a Finish pillar.
Swifting - Fastest time on a very short and simple track (a real millisecond “war”).


TRACKS

The Games will be disputed in three different “locations” (tracks): each one of them will admit 2 different Games.


OTHER INFO

You’ll find many other details (Program, Cars, Detailed Rules for every specific game) visiting the official site, soon ready!  :)

Great :) I've always wanted to see non-racing competitions. Only problem is I will be very busy in that whole period.

Funny concept, it's music to my ears. ;-) Sounds like playing FlatOut mini-games in Stunts. ;D

A best crash competition attempt was done in Lucas' forum (where there was 4DSL and WSC forum originally) and had no success. Let's hope more success to this one.

Quote from: Mark
Swifting - Fastest time on a very short and simple track (a real millisecond “war”).
That kind of track was used as FStunts competition bonus tracks. Additional rule was to always have the 4 wheels always completely on the road, no exception. It was very short flat tracks with sharp corners : quite boring IMO, but maybe it will be better with Mark's track design.

edit : One question : RH or noRH competition ?

edit 2 : I hope nobody will have to miss this event because of exams (june is often an exam period in north hemisphere).

So is in the South hemisphere, right before Winter break (Which is in July). Anyway, there is a higher chance you'll see me there during that period than during Olympics time...  ;D

Wow, I'm really happy seeing this enthusiasm after my announce!  :) :) :)

Anyway, it seems there could be some problems about the period choosen...  ::)

Hope the schedule won't be too tight - 6 events in 3 weeks sounds hard.

Only problem is I will be very busy in that whole period.

I'm not at home in the last week of the event, but I have to take part.

edit 2 : I hope nobody will have to miss this event because of exams (june is often an exam period in north hemisphere).

Well, I chose June in order of:

1) Not to overlap the event with the start of FTT. Last thing I wanted was calling away the attention form the new Krys' competition...  :)
2) A period not so intense for me, even if actually I can't manage a event longer than 3 weeks...  ::)
3) Quite standard period of real Olympic Games...  ;)

Moreover, I chose form the 8th to the 28th of the month just not to overlap the start and the end of usual contests.

Anyway, if you think it would be better, I could anticipate the event starting from 19th May (or even the 12th May), or posticipate it, but only for a week...

Waiting for your suggestions, here it is the official logo of the event...!  ;)

I think not overlapping with the beginning/end of other competition is unimportant compared to finding a time when a lot of pipsqueaks can participate. As for myself, I have to hand in a really big paper at June 13, a smaller one (but not that small) at June 18 or 20, and then I'm away June 21-June 28. So it could hardly be worse for me :) But I would still participate.

Thanks for that Mark.
But you know, I just spent 2 hours coding and debugging, and FTT works now (or so it seems, all kind of beta-tests are to be performed), so it will be started long before june. ;)
And as I took more time than expected to start it, I decided to let the FTT tracks last only 3 weeks, so deadline won't be as regular as with ZakStunts.

Yup, one thing I trust is Mark's ability to design crazy stuff... ;)

edit : One question : RH or noRH competition ?

That's an important point - most (if not all) categories won't work well if RH is allowed.

(...) and FTT works now (or so it seems, all kind of beta-tests are to be performed), so it will be started long before june. ;)

That's nice to hear too... :)

Well, thinking that drivers will have only a week to realize their times, and thinking that there won't be IRC rules (so no forced path), I think that this game won't be anyway boring... But I will try to realize a interesting track, even if not very hard, remembering that there will be only a week...  ;)


edit : One question : RH or noRH competition ?

That's an important point - most (if not all) categories won't work well if RH is allowed.

Sincerly, I had thought that every game would be competed with RH... Now, after reading this comment, I've just tried to think if some games can be competed with NORH... Well, thinking that a NORH competition usually demands a higher number of trials to realize decent results (above all in unusual races as these games), and thinking that there will be 2 games for every single week, I don't think that NORH could be the ideal solution... Moreover I think that some games (above all Powering and Jumping, but sure even Flying) could be funny and interesting only with a RH competition... About Swifting, Speeding and (even if a bit less) Crashing, a NORH competition could be interesting, but... only a limited number of drivers has realized DOSBox videos until here, maybe because they don't know to use it or configure it. So, I wouldn't want unvoluntary to impede them to participate...  ::)
But I will evaluate all your suggestions!   ;)

Instead, about anticipating the event, I ask all you if the date 17th May-7th June (instead 8-28 June) could be better in order to permit to all you to participate. After your comments about this, I'll communicate you the definitive date within the end of April!  :)

Title: Re: Stunts Olympic Games 2008
Post by: BonzaiJoe on April 16, 2008, 11:07:14 PM
That would be better for me. I would still be busy, but not at the same level, and during that period I am only away May 17-19.
I agree it should be with replay handling.
Title: Re: Stunts Olympic Games 2008
Post by: Krys TOFF on April 16, 2008, 11:24:38 PM

Stunts Olympis Games 2008 have been anticipated!

New dates are the following: 17 May - 7 June 2008
 
And the official site is now fully operative! Visit it to knowing all the rules and the cars will be used!  :)  For the track, you have to wait still a bit...  ;)

Just one question, Mark: the "penalty time" observation on the "Swifiting" rule implies the game won't be OWOOT?

Link in Stunts portal leads to http://digilander.libero.it/stunts.SDR/SOG2008 and it gives an error page as there's no index.htm (or .html or .php) page.
You should either rename the index page, or create a welcome page named index.htm I think Mark. ;)

Thanks for your compliments about the logo!  :)

About the link on Stunts Portal, I've already mentioned the thing to Zak by private message. It's a misunderstanding between us: my new banner link is not a temporary banner link for SOG 2008, but a new SDR general banner link. So it has to point at main SDR page (SDR portal) and not directly to SOG 2008 main page. In other words, it has to point exactly where the previous banner points (and the previous banner link has to be deleted).

Another great protagonist landed on Stunts OlympicGames 2008: Ayrton!
He reach a great performance in CRASHING and so he leads the provisional classification in that specialty.
About Speeding... well, he found (only him could find it...) the way to crash into a Finish Pillar at 245 Mph... (!) obviously availing for a long tract the part of the track reserved to Crashing, sliding then on the water until to point to the finish line. Well a amazing result that, anyway, I won't consider valid. The reason is expalined in the mail I've just sent to Ayrton:

"Really amazing your replays, Ayrton! :)
Anyway, I won't accept your result for Speeding. It doesn't infract the declared rules for Speeding, but it infracts an undeclared but quite clear rule related to the explicit goal drivers have to reach: the maximum speed managing Indy at its limit, driving as fast as possible the tract ice-dirt-aspalth. I repeate, your result is technically correct but not corresponding at the spirit of the Game. So.. I invite you to demonstrate on more time your wonderful and immense skill following the natural line of the Track...
;)"

So... waiting for a new great result from Ayrton for SPEEDING!

Post by: Mark L. Rivers on May 22, 2008, 07:03:30 PM

I didn't receive your replay, CTG. Anyway, about 245 Mph on Speeding, please read what I said previously about Ayrton's replay.

Talking about new results, outset for SuperBrian and me on CRASHING: respectively 5th and 2nd in provisional standings. But the SuperBrian reaches me on top of SPEEDING: 181 Mph!

And now an important advice: I inform you that deadlines for all three weeks has been postponed for 7 hours. New deadline is Saturday at 21:00. Seven hours more to show your Olympic spirit… :)

Meanwhile here it is the preview (not very defined in this case…) about Track B in action during the 2nd week! Games will be JUMPING and FLYING: have you already read the specific rules for these games, and, above all, have you already prepared big wheels to add at your favorite cars…? :D

Post by: Mark L. Rivers on May 22, 2008, 10:53:10 PM

While AbuRaf70 improves in both games (we had said it...  ;)), I increase my limit at SPEEDING, but first line of the scoreboard is for CTG, who establishes a new thunderous record. Difficult to say if it will be beaten or not...

Post by: CTG on May 23, 2008, 07:53:26 AM
Difficult to say if it will be beaten or not...

It will be... I started to accelerate a bit a late at the icy part, so it's very likely to see 192-194 mph from someone else at the end.

The line is an easy choice... ;) (anyway I won't take part in the crashing game, it's a too obvious run against time on an exact line - like any other conventional races with multiway selection)

On the other hand I'm looking forward to the jumping/flying games! ;)

Post by: BonzaiJoe on May 23, 2008, 11:28:50 AM
Like any other conventional race at all :) You don't like one-way tracks either? :P

Anyway, I've still got 0.70 up to Ayrton, I know exactly how to catch them up and it's TEDIOUS. The speeding game is more interesting, very much precision needed in the end :) And the first Stunts competition I've ever played where you can totally relax in the first part of the track :)

New replays by Ayrton and absolute best performances in both games! While I improve my result in SPEEDING arriving at 1 Mph from CTG, the incredible Ayrton smashes the 190 Mph barrier: simply fantastic!!  8)  Less than 24 hours to the end of the first 2 games: who will catch the first podiums? Let's see!  :)

Virtual bronze medal for Duplode in CRASHING, and fourth provisional place for him in SPEEDING! So... we are in the last hours for this specialties: who will improve from here to the end, and who the first gold medals? No other update until the deadline, let's give free space to the olympic spirit!

Hey, I totally forgot about this! Deadline at midnight? Then there's still time :)

By the way, it only means I won't win. Second place looks easy :P But it only looks it, of course. There will be improvements from CTG and Mark.

Even the countdown clock on the site says there's still time left :) But in the news the deadline is states as 21:00. Well I guess I could have just thought about this during one of the previous 6 hours instead of after the deadline :).  I did 191 mph and 36.90.

To avoid any misunderstandings, I want to make a clarification about Flying rules that say:

"Longest aerial time (It will be considered the time from the “takeoff” to the “landing”, even crashed.)."

Saying this, I want to say that the landing can be even "crashed", but not the longest aerial time, that is the fly. Car has to be "safe" at least until the landing.

I wonder how long can be the fly of the future winner of the flying contest... Anyone can win this part of the contest.

Jumping event will require much more strategy and some magic carpets to win. Jumping winner will be Ayrton I think.

Why my flying time sent a few hours ago is not in the scoreboard ?
Can you tell me if my mail has arrived or not Mark ?

edit : and I have 1 question : my car was flying, then it touched the corner of a tunnel roof and went to fly again. I suppose the time counted is from leaving the tunnel (even if I touched it only by 1 wheel) and not from leaving the ground. Please confirm me this point too Mark, just to be sure. IMO the flying period is without touching any element (loop, ...), so it starts when last tyre leave the ground and ends as soon as 1 part of the car hits the ground (or any element).

New record in both specialties: AbuRaf70 for JUMPING and Krys TOFF for FLYING! The argentinian avails relly all the time (89"65 !) and the french makes a result that appears really hard to beat!

Well, Flying is a bit random even if nice for casual fun (as intended... ;)). There are some well known bugs to be used, the only issue is finding where to pull them off... Jumping, however, is very engaging and strategical - my favourite game so far! :)

Stunts Olympic Games 2008 greets with real pleasure a new absolute outset in WEB Stunts racing world: we are talking about "Spartan", Stunts driver from Greece! And his outset his sure great for another reason: he catches the provisional gold medal on FLYING! What can we desire more than this? :)

Well, before all you posted your comments I had thought something similar... But there's something other that bring me to think differently.

1) The mail has a own particular style, vocabulary, composition, an general effect. If it was made from a "ghost" he sure is a sophisticated falsifier and a great actor, and "ghoster" known in our world are not so refined...

2) E-mail sent me reports (as automatic added) the following row:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Email Australia. Be part of history. Take part in Australia's first e-mail archive with
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This matches with my traffic detecting system which has relieved many visits from Australia in this week (8 hours the different timezone form local date/hour). IP address is completely different from that relieved for Hungarian visits. (No Hungarian visits in last 5 days).


3) First attempt for FLYING has been realized with P962, the second one with Indy.


So, I like to think that we have really a newbie. But if it won't be so, the shame will be as usual on the ghoster...  ;)

Krys and me together on Track B: great show!  :)  We made both good trials for JUMPING: 2nd provisional place for me and 4th for Krys, but he has really good chances to improve, thinking that he could avail other 15 seconds... But we made both great things in FLYING! I only a bit more than Krys but really a great show, you'll understand what I say watching the replays!
OK, less than one day to the deadline! Hoping that other drivers will join for this week, a question is blowing in the wind: who will catch the 3rd and 4th podiums of these Olympic Games? No more updates until the end, let's see!  :)


Meanwhile, looking forward to the 3rd week...
Today, after a lot of modifies, I’ve finally finished to design the definitive track for SWIFTING… It has been not so easy, because I wanted to reach different goals:

1) Short track, 30-40 seconds.
2) Not too easy, but not so hard to demand grinding concentration.
3) Avoiding that tricks or bugs could affect the final results.
4) Highlighting the special features of Speedgate XSD: acceleration, speed, grip, manageability.
5) Inserting at least an unusual and original tract (following the SDR tradition… ;)).
6) Funny to drive on.

Well, maybe I’m a bit presumptuous, but… I think to have reached all my goals… ;)

Again good participation (really a lot of replays, not very easy to check above all for FLYING, please tell me if you are not agree with some measuration) including an excellent outset: Bonzai Joe! Assay attempt on FLYING, and a stronger trial for JUMPING, even if he arrived at finish line with 9 seconds of penalty that elevated his final time over the 90" limit. Anyway his 36 jumps and his presence are really very good for this event!

And we are now at the 3rd and last week of this first Stunts Olympic Games edition!
Speedgate XSD and Indy are the cars to use respectively in last two games: Swifting and Powering! Download the Track C from Download page and check the specific rules in Info&Rules page. Above all check your passion and enjoy one more time with this wonderful game!

Blowin' in the Wind (Bob Dylan)

How many roads must a man walk down
Before you call him a man?
Yes, 'n' how many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand?
Yes, 'n' how many times must the cannon balls fly
Before they're forever banned?
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind,
The answer is blowin' in the wind.

How many times must a man look up
Before he can see the sky?
Yes, 'n' how many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry?
Yes, 'n' how many deaths will it take till he knows
That too many people have died?
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind,
The answer is blowin' in the wind.

How many years can a mountain exist
Before it's washed to the sea?
Yes, 'n' how many years can some people exist
Before they're allowed to be free?
Yes, 'n' how many times can a man turn his head,
Pretending he just doesn't see?
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind,
The answer is blowin' in the wind.

 :)...

Anyway, now it seems Swifting will be my last chance at a gold medal. Surely it will be hard as hell, but I gotta try and put the Speedgate to good use...

Improvements for POWERING by Krys TOFF and AbuRaf70, with the argentinian very near to the first provisional place!  :)  Meanwhile, it seems that SWIFTING is going to be a more tactical race: only a new outset (me) who catch the "very virtual" gold medal. But maybe drivers will wait the moves of their opponents or maybe someone is taking confidence with a car never used before... Sure not Duplode (great win in "Emotions" SDR NORH R8/2007) and Chulk (great win in "Gate" SDR RH R8/2007)... ;)

Even thinking that could be the possibility to reach a higher time, it has to keep in count if a driver wants, at this point, making an endurance race...!  ;)

Even if the number of drivers has decreased in this last week, we had incredible replays above all in POWERING, which has seen an ex-aequo for Ayrton (4th gold medal, absolute winner of the games!  8)) and me! Both stopped voluntarly our replays while we could prosecute them (over 2 minutes for Ayrton and over 3 minutes for me)!  :o  Very interesting the different styles of the two Powergear specialists: while Ayrton controlled his car between slides and short curves, I found a "ring" between the obstacles, driving on it "lap" after "lap" without making one slide! Please watched both replays to see fantastic ways to drive at 245 Mph!  :)  But POWERING lead us to greet a new medalist: AbuRaf70, who catches the bronze medal with a really nice half minute of great Powergear!  :)  :)  And now, let's talk about SWIFTING. I hoped more drivers took part at this short game, but it has not been so. Anyway, good replays have made intersting this race too. I got my 3rd gold medal realizing the absolute best time, but I had to push really hard his car to beat a great Duplode (2nd silver medal for him) and the surprising Spartan! The driver came from Greece got a strong time using Autogear conquering so his 2nd bronze medal.

What can we say in conclusion? I hope that The Stunts Olympic Games 2008 will be remembered as a joyful event for all drivers who really love this wonderful game! Thanks to all the driver who took part in it and... see you on other scoreboards!  :)

Then it only shows I was actually fortunate to escape with a second silver medal on Swifting on a semi-strong performance... :) Very nice event this event was, with quite a few fun breaks from usual RH logics: after pioneering a way to formalize NoRH racing, Mark went a good way towards doing so with trick contests  ;) Now allow me to put up two suggestions for future modalities:

  • "Drifiting", which would be Swifting but with a more claustrophobic track and more, ahem, "colorful" handling issues to deal, maybe with GTO or GT3... :D
  • If we had Jumping and Flying, maybe Triple Jump could be adapted from athletics as well: goal is to chain as many jumps/bumps as possible without touching the ground, hills, hill slopes or regular roads.

Thanks for your comments, Duplode, and thanks for your suggestions! I will consider them with attention. Anyway, looking the decreasing participation during the event, and the poorness of comments (number of comments, I mean) after the end, I will consider with attention if organizing or not another similar event...

Muy cierto es que sobre el final del Torneo, algunos participantes no enviaron sus replays...

Pero eso no quita que el Torneo de Olimpic Games haya sido un gran éxito...

Por todo ello, Mark, espero que vuelvas a inspirarte y nos invites nuevamente a participar en otra de tus divertidas competencias...

Y que sea lo más pronto posible...!!!!
