An Italian site picked Oliver's article as the theme for an editorial. It has a beautiful title: I giochi sono di chi li gioca ("Games belong to its players").

Competition 2017 / Re: Z187 (Anelio's) analysis

I looove these analysis! Thank you!!

You're welcome  :) This reminds me I should add some more features to Cartography, in order to make analysis cooler. Perhaps I should begin by improving text support, so that the timing charts can be easily overlaid on the map.

I had sent to zak two tracks of mines.

Nice!

Do you want to see they?

I don't think that's necessary. Competition tracks usually aren't published early -- we like to be surprised  :)

I like valleys, and bridges that span them :) I'm going to try this out anytime soon -- no clue about cars, though.

Competition 2017 / ZCT188 - AbuRaf's Boulevard
« on: April 17, 2017, 09:41:56 AM »
(Catching up with the race topics...)

When it comes to tracks, "simple" does not imply "boring", or, for that matter, "easy". This race was a fine example of that.

Competition 2017 / Z187 (Anelio's) analysis
« on: April 17, 2017, 09:34:51 AM »
Here is a top 4 analysis, which I originally intended to do several weeks ago. It shows how much of a difference Marco's (and, elsewhere on the scoreboard, Alan's) trick made, as well as how much FinRok's third sector stands out.

Edit: There was a silly mistake in the first version of this analysis -- I measured the second split at the foot of the hill, rather than at the exit of the banked turn, as shown in the map. I have adjusted the values -- the story being told remains largely the same.

I like how the article, in a thousand words and seven screenshots, touches on, or alludes to, so many things. The track editor. The surprisingly interesting physics. Modding and tools. The sandbox environment. The make-your-own-rules attitude. The multiple levels of meta-game. Replay handling. Competitions. The Golden Generation. World Stunts Meetings. The Europe-Sudamerica axis. The story of AbuRaf70.

Would somebody tell me when was this tunnel made? Ronaldinho (who is one of the best players alltime IMO) got angry because Sorin made a tunnel :D

Chulk!! I thought of you when I heard about Gimnasia the other day. They are playing Ponte Preta in the Sul-Americana, aren't they?

Hello and welcome, Oliver!

This sounds great, and I'm definitely up for it! I encourage my fellow pipsqueaks to take part as well -- in particular, it will be nice if you get to talk with people from different generations. By the way, I'm leaving a note about your invitation at the ZakStunts shoutbox, to make sure everyone around sees it.

Technically it is very easy to change the "fantasy name" of the track in the site. But should we do it? I see three possibilities:

  • We invent a really good name ASAP;
  • We change it to "Untitled";
  • We leave it as "Acacia Avenue"

I wish we still had the posts in the forums of those days.

Indeed. Some bits of wsc.ar.nu have survived in the Internet Archive, but the WSC forum circa 2008 has completely vanished.

Stunts Code Extraction / Re: PES File Format
« on: March 09, 2017, 02:15:45 AM »
I know I'm digging up this post, but it costed to me to found where was the information about what kind of decompression was necessary to open the files. I think would be interesting that someone put this information on the Stunts Wiki(If already was there, sorry, but I don`t found it there).

Indeed, that should be documented -- as a section in Resource file format, or perhaps in a separate article to also cover compression in the executable.
