Hmmm... to me this sounds like you downloaded the Mindscape version of 4 D Sports Driving. Take a look at http://www.kalpen.de/stunts/stunts.htm, click on "Download Stunts" and scroll a little bit down. You'll find the Download Security Crack files for each program version. If you have the Mindscape version then download the crack file for it and try again.

Strange. Did you try one of the Broderbund versions? Which OS do you use?

By the way, are you from Germany? Your name sounds like. Dann k?nnen wir das Problem vielleicht leichter l?sen.

naw im not german, im norwegian, and varius is just a long story away from my name marius..

hmm ive tried all the versions og the kalpen site, but as krys toff said i think its something about the whole dos thing because last night ive tried the incredible machine (another old game) and the sam thing happened (absolutely nothing, the first picture just frooze..)i hate my computer nowadays

Strange... normally Stunts runs with XP. Now I see two possibilities: Run Stunts in DOSBox or (better) you download an image for a bootable CD from Zak's site: http://stunts.mine.nu/zakstunts/index.php?page=download&menu=full.Simply burn this image on a cd, boot from it - and you should be in! :)
