Title: Live Races 2020
Post by: dreadnaut on March 21, 2020, 01:18:18 PM
Well then, I'm home this weekend. And the next. Oh, the one after too? Maybe it's time to organise a live race, even multiple live races!

Let's start with Sunday 22 March, 20:00GMT! Who's in?

For those who are new, read about the "Le Stunts" format (http://forum.stunts.hu/index.php?topic=2801.0) that we usually follow.

But this sunday i would like to give watching this a try:

With the lil girl for me it would be a bit difficult to be present at an exact time and date...  :-|

If there's quorum, I'm in. Otherwise, count me in for next week or just whenever you can. I'm also at home for quite a while!

Sounds like next week might see more participants, let's try with that :)

Next week or something sounds nice.

Is one of you making a short track? Or shall I?

Always happy to race on an Overdrijf track, go ahead! ;)

I'll be happy to join next week and if you need another track, count on me for that too. Last time, I think we had two or three races. It was good. Let's try to set a date and time in advance so that we have an agreement and make sure we don't need to re-postpone :)  In my case, the weekend is OK virtually at any time as long as I know in advance. Weekdays are better in the evening or in the morning, because I'm still working in the afternoon, but... if I know in advance that there'll be a race, I can change my working time for that day.

I'll post the track Friday, giving everyone two days to have a look.

(Note: I split the previous race into its own topic (http://forum.stunts.hu/index.php?topic=3614.0))

I missed the last race, let's have another one! I'm available any EU-time evenings, or we could do next weekend ;)
Title: Re: Live Races 2020
Post by: Cas on November 01, 2020, 07:25:16 AM
Next weekend sounds good for me!  I could be available on non-weekends, but the timing should be very good or I should know in advance where. If there's agreement about a day other than weekend, ask me with time, and I'll see if I can manage to be there at that time. But a Saturday would be ideal, and Sunday is #2.

Maybe squeeze in a quick final live race in the Christmas days just so we can say we did three of them this year?  ;)

As usual, my availability for a precise time and date depends on various unpredictable factors, so I will probably know at the very last...

What's your timezone? We often race around 20:00GMT.
Title: Re: Live Races 2020
Post by: KyLiE on December 15, 2020, 05:05:30 AM
My time zone is GMT+10.  If it means that more people can participate, I'm happy to get up early! :)
Title: Re: Live Races 2020
Post by: Cas on December 15, 2020, 06:12:10 AM
Oh, that's going to be quite early for you, KyLiE!  Anyway, I'm more comfortable on the 19th, but if it's to be the 20th, count on me too
Title: Re: Live Races 2020
Post by: Daniel3D on December 15, 2020, 04:42:04 PM
If it's on the 20th I could participate as well.
Got to work the 19th.

Although I don't know if family matters are in my favour (we went in corrona lockdown today)
Title: Re: Live Races 2020
Post by: dreadnaut on December 15, 2020, 07:13:11 PM
There are different options (https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/meetingtime.html?iso=20201219&p1=152&p2=5&p3=196&p4=50&p5=136&p6=213&p7=51), but the best one seems to be "evening in Australia, morning in Europe and South America", which you can see in the attachment.

That could be Friday evening/Saturday morning, or Saturday evening/Sunday morning. A bit early for those in South America, or is it doable?

GMT -3 morning is doable for me, even if it's early -- just let me know the time slot in advance so I can set my alarm clock :D

Post by: Cas on December 15, 2020, 09:24:28 PM
Morning!  :o  Is there a thing called "morning"?  Ha, ha XD  Yeah, well, I'd have to start drifting my brain's time-zone starting tonight, as I'm usually an owl that goes to bed at 4am or 5am and sleep till midday. There are still a few days ahead so I can do it. Besides, it's not the same waking up early to work as waking up early to race! :D

Post by: KyLiE on December 16, 2020, 04:35:07 AM
You guys do whatever suits you best.  I'm usually up late at night but like I said, I'm happy to get up early for a race.

I'm actually kind of blocked on Saturday evening, it's a Christmas kind of thing.

But the comfortably late Central European morning suits me just fine.


Also, is anyone working on a track yet? Or do I need to bring the quarantine rooms back out?  ;) It looks like we did room 7 and 9 on that previous session. (http://forum.stunts.hu/index.php?topic=3614.0)
Title: Re: Live Races 2020
Post by: Daniel3D on December 16, 2020, 04:42:55 PM
I'm not working on a track  8)
(just like to state the obvious)

But as I have never participated,
Can someone please give me a quick rundown of what I can expect?

I remember something with lap times but I didn't get the meaning..

(Still not sure if I can make it)

Title: Re: Live Races 2020
Post by: dreadnaut on December 16, 2020, 06:52:30 PM
Can someone please give me a quick rundown of what I can expect?
We race on a looping track without going through the finish line, for a fixed amount of in-game (8m) or real-life (12m) time. The winner is the pipsqueak who has travelled further, counting laps first, and track tiles in case of draws. More info in the sticky thread (http://forum.stunts.hu/index.php?topic=2801.0).

At this point I would propose Saturday 19th, 11:00 to 12:00 GMT, which means:

I have not prepared a track, happy to drive on any Overdrijf-experiment, or other. Take ownership, and post the track on Friday morning in this new thread (http://forum.stunts.hu/index.php?topic=3629.new#new) :)

Great, thank you Cas!

If anyone else wants to make one, feel free: sometimes we have time for a second race :)
Title: Re: Live Races 2020

One car only, usually. Track designer's choice.

The time slot is fine; I'd only like to double check the date with you all. The only "hard" objection so far was from Daniel3D, who will be working on Saturday. Cas said he prefers Saturday but could make it on Sunday. Overdrijf mentioned not being around on Saturday evening, but that a morning race would be fine -- but also on Sunday? (As for me, I'm okay with either day.)
Title: Re: Live Races 2020
Post by: KyLiE on December 17, 2020, 05:44:26 AM
I'm happy with either Saturday or Sunday.  It doesn't make a difference for me. :)
Title: Re: Live Races 2020
Post by: Cas on December 17, 2020, 08:53:33 AM
Sure, you can count on me too. And I already have a track!  Maybe I'll make another one, just in case :)

I have a late afternoon/evening shift.
So I should be able to be there.

Then I'll will need to practice. 95% of the time I drive the Indy or the McLaren... So my driving is rubbish with the others...
Title: Re: Live Races 2020

Okay, I guess we're set for Saturday, then  :)

Any car restrictions?

On a tangential note, thinking of the recent conversations about versions lately, I suggest we stick to Broderbund Stunts 1.1. (Granted, we could in principle pick some other version, though the slow replay management of the 1990 versions could cost precious seconds under our usual rules.)

Cas, are you OK with the track? Happy to supply one if you are busy!
Title: Re: Live Races 2020
Post by: Daniel3D on December 18, 2020, 06:35:31 PM
Ehmm. What time zone does CAS live?
If still New Zealand then it's about 7 in the morning.

(Might have been better if he posted the track before he went to sleep  ;D It won't make a difference to me. I'll probably be last anyway. It's the fun that's important)
Title: Re: Live Races 2020
Post by: dreadnaut on December 18, 2020, 07:34:41 PM
Should be South America, so I have posted a track in the other thread (http://forum.stunts.hu/index.php?topic=3629.new#new). We can use that for the "warmed-up" race, and Cas' for the second one ;)
