Stunts Questions / Re: Roland MT-32 problems with BB 1.1
« Last post by GTAMan17 on October 25, 2020, 12:01:51 PM »
restunts is in cryogenic sleep but there is still much to reverse that isn't that demanding - the sound drivers seems to be very simple :)

btw: "Stunts 1.0" and "4D Sports Driving 1.1" MT15.DRV is equal
For 4D Sports Driving 1.1 Dec-13-1990 it's true, but since 4D Sports Driving 1.1 Feb-25-1991 is compatible with Stunts 1.1 it has the Stunts 1.1 MT15.DRV

Glad you like it, GTAMan! :D  This was something that should've been done before. About colouration, it's been an unfinished and unofficial feature in Bliss for quite some time.

And Dreadnaut, wow!  I understand from this that I will be able to give Bliss a true full interface with ZakStunts, right?  At this moment, the interfacing to get the current track and its metadata uses official interchange information (from the json file), but for the scoreboard, I'm having to parse the HTML, which will break if at any time a modification is made to the style of the page. If you do get a stable interchange file working (a.k.a. "API"), let me know and I'll make the changes. It would make the tournament access faster and more reliable.

Bliss is getting very complicated to update. The code is too big and each piece of it has been made without thinking of the ones that came after it, of course, which has accumulated a lot of redundancy and inconsistences. At this point, I feel like rewriting the whole thing, but that would be too much work. Yet, something like changing the procedure to read the scoreboard from ZakStunts is, in my opinion, important to update if it comes up. I can see that the project involves a lot more information, but I don't think I'll make this Bliss able to navigate through past races and such. It's too much to add to this code. I'll leave that last part for Bliss 3.0... if I decide to do the big thing.

Oh, and KyLiE found a bug in Bliss 2.5.7, but it only affects the DOS version. I'm fixing that now.

This new version is so cool, you can download tracks from R4K

This reminds me of a recent work-in-progress on ZakStunts:

Spoiler, start position is "masked"... ;D

I'm not sure about the ZakStunts compatibility. The other option is a relatively easy, almost full powergear circuit with a few slow corners.

Alright... I've been saying for over a year that Bliss is complete and I'm only going to make more changes in case of bugs, but...


New features:
  • Colouration - Use colours to mark sections of the grid. Good for tutorials and to set rules for a race. Remember those times when you had to take a screenshot of a track, then clip a part and use a drawing program to make markings on it?  You can do it from within Bliss now with this option and the Track-shot menu
  • Improved tournament protocol - Now Bliss supports Race For Kicks!  Yeah, really, it was a shame that all this time, it didn't. And besides, for anybody who would one day want to make a little championship or race event, it's much simpler now to hook with the protocol, the details of which are described in the manual

Other changes:
  • Track-shots should now work well even in DOSBox... hopefully :)
  • E-mail and website have been updated in the start screen
  • DPMI server included in the package to make it simpler for DOS users, given that DOSBox no longer provides built-in DPMI. Thanks for pointing this out, KyLiE!

This update isn't crucial, as no major bugs have been fixed, but if you use track-shots and would like to use it for track schematics, I recommend upgrading.

Acura? No way. Even if it would be fun on this track, the bonus is simply not enough.

GTOMan has a great chance to secure his title.
