Yes, that's true. Yeah, I think having both is the best, because people can choose to go to the site and see the latest version and all the details, but if something fails, it is also available right there. You may want to add that Bliss also runs in GNU/Linux, as that's probably not expected.

Thanks, Dreadnaut!

Well, while I would like, of course, to have traffic in my website, I reckon that it serves a better purpose for the community to have the ZIP accessible there. Remember in the past, I was off for some time and the website I had at that time was lost, so Duplode had to share his copy of Bliss. I don't intend to abandon my current site or the community, but it's safer if it's uploaded there, I reckon. What do you think?

Well, I've been into other things really, but when I'm bored, I make some touches to Bliss. As you all know, it's already totally functional since long ago, but I wanted to tell you I've updated a bit. So...

Bliss 2.5.3

New features:
  • Time estimates can now be done for every car. There's a pull down list
  • Better quality starting scenarios
  • Take trackshots by pressing CTRL+S
  • ZakStunts track identification when metadata is lost

Fixed bugs:
  • Some menu options had persistent buttons. Strange I hadn't seen them before. It's fixed
  • Found out why it didn't work in DOSBox and made it work. It's slower and doesn't look as good, though, but yes. Now you can run it under DOSBox too!

If you haven't updated the last time, for the custom directories option, I really recommend you to do so. It's a lot more comfortable to navigate the filesystem with that.
As always, you can get this update from I would be very thankful if Bliss were included in the Downloads area in ZakStunts.

Yeah, I think I have reached my limit. It would take me lots of time to better the lap I posted. It was especially difficult to take the third corner (the one after the slalom) without losing considerable speed. Also, a few things proved hard to do. Namely, even after completing a turn with a very good time, I might end up at a certain gear with a certain speed that would not be a good combination to gain acceleration with a trick. This is true after the second corner, wanting to speed up using the first boulevard and after the fourth corner, riding the banked road. This would sometimes force me to redo the previous turn even though the time was good.

I can keep on trying to better my lap, but it really feels hard already to improve it. It's clear that the whole matter is about concentrating in the curves.

Oh! That sentence sounds very cool in Portuguese. In Spanish, it doesn't feel exactly the same, because "mora" translates as "vive", but "vive" also means "is alive". We also have the verb "morar", but it's very seldom used. If I were to translate this into Spanish, I'd say "El diablo reside en los detalles", which sounds very formal. Alternatively, I could drop some meaning in favour of informality and say "El diablo está en los detalles". These sentences are not predefined in Spanish, though.

Nice track, Dreadnaut!  A very carefully balanced split. Before the adjustment, Bliss reported that I should take the long way, although the opponent would be taking the other. After the change, it agrees with the opponent that the shortest path should be followed. However, I'm finding it easier to perform well by taking the long path... so far...  We'll see what comes up :)

Ha, ha!  No problem. When the Acura performs as a fast car, like in these cases, it's really interesting to see it. I think the Acura is the "most undefined" car in the terms that it does not fit either among the intermediate or the fast cars, but it actually plays both roles. It definitely is not a "slow" car.

Well, this is the first time I open the topic for a track. Duplode, if I forget something, feel free to edit. Here I go: :)
As usual for my tracks, this is a fast and crazy circuit, in which I've tried to include as many stunt combinations as I could. I made sure that wherever you are, you always see something around, be it scenery or stunts from another part of the track. I had estimated that the car of the race was going to be Jaguar, so I made sure the double-jump could be performed with it. Lotus seems like another plausible option, although you'd have to skip the jump.

After the race start, I realised GAR was going to be difficult. When I tried to make a GAR lap, I had a hard time. If I go carefully, trying not to crash, then I don't have enough speed for the double-jump when I get there. That's the main thing. But I think you guys are more experienced than I am and you'll manage to make it :p

Maybe we should PM them about it, although it should populate as soon as they log into the forum :S

Maybe an announcement should be made as "news" on ZakStunts site about the Live Races, so we ensure enough quorum. Is it possible to also include an image there, so it calls everybody's attention?  Oh, and was Seeker's account activated in the end?

As many as you'd like!  I have one ready that I'd like to try. It's an oldie, but I think it'd be nice to have it in a tournament. And of course, I can also design a brand new one

I can write news too, if necessary. Also, an introduction to incoming tracks, etc. I feel comfortable with that. If anything else is needed, count me on too. Of course, track design is something I enjoy too. :D

Well, if nobody that hasn't posted a track this year wants to post one there, I have an extra track I'd like to put in one of those :-)

I've got my new track ready for ZCT195. I had tried about three times before to get the inspiration for a nice track and I think today I got it  :)
I still have over two weeks to send it, but I'll do it now, just in case. I think you guys will like it  ;D

Is it already decided who will author the November and December tracks?
