Hmm, is there a track (Vancouver) inside DEFAULT.RPL ? Mine (BB 1.1) is 2.8 KB, so it cannot contain both DEFAULT.TRK and VANCOUVR.TRK...  :o

In the 1.1 versions as originally distributed, there is a DEFAULT.RPL replay which was driven on the "hidden" VANCOUVR track. viniciusferrao and dstien have covered the details in this thread. (I probably should add some footnotes to the table to better explain this sort of thing.)

For a long time i thought the replay to be coded somewere. (i never kept replays so i didn't overwrite it)
but extracting the track from the replay is actualy verry simple. (can be done in stunts for any replay you dont have the track of)
Quote
For those, like me, who didn't know this

Code: [Select]
Load the replay form options,
choose restart driving,
Drive or not, if you do, you'll get a insert track disk in drive B message at the high score because the track is not found.
go back to the menu
Go to tracks, here the track is visible
edit the track and save. it will get the right name as well.

In the 90's, I had many replays whose track I had lost. I used to watch them wishing that I still had the track. In some cases, watching carefully, I tried to memorise the path and then recreate the track. That was only at the very beginning. Soon I became comfortable with binary files and with a quick look, I realised that the tracks were entirely contained in the replays, so I made a simple tool to extract them at that time. Of course, if I had been more thoughtful, I would've realised I could've done it within Stunts, but I had only had my computer for a few months :P

I has been staring me in my face for over 25 years. It's obvious in hindsight. Doesn't mean it's easy to discover.
Some on the forum might be knowing of this for years but have never mentioned it because it's so obvious. 8)

I guess it's similar to the trick to sign the scoreboard after RH. It's something that one can reason that can be done before actually trying it, but because we don't normally expect it, we don't stop to think about it and so, it took relatively long for people to come up with that.

The one I was thinking of was the left corner bias -- the bias CTG has been warning us of through all those years.

Yes, that is quite interesting as well.  I always thought CTG was just bad at right hand corners! :P

Also, in case you find it interesting, the version of Stunts that I first played was the Mindscape 13/12/1990 version released by Red Sector.

Only the crack was released by Red Sector, and also that was the version I played back in the summer of 2014, when I didn't have desktop internet connection, playing loud musics with Windows Media Player, playing the game without DOSBox, on my old IBM computer I wish I still have but didn't last long

I know, I meant in terms of a warez group release, not an official release.

I put the "confirmation pending" there because I kinda suspected the issues with rewinding I had were a DOSBox-X artefact. Thanks for confirming that.

I would like to add all the info collected about both seasons of 4dsL. Every scoreboard, every pipsqueak, countries, times, stats and more stuff. I don't want to make a mess so when I upload it I'll ask here if you please can check it.

Oh I should update Melange page too.

This is the screen that appears when starting the Stunts 1.0 version I have. I also see there is a SMAX program there. It looks like that one is the crack, then STUNT.COM is the one that loads this start screen.

By the way, what does this left corner bias consist of exactly?  Physicists would say that the Stunts space-time violates C-symmetry  ;D  I'm pretty sure it violates T-symmetry too. P-symmetry... uhm... what would that be in Stunts?  ::)

There are two things that I've tried to resolve about Stunts but seem like a mystery. I'll create a thread about them to discuss... maybe we in the community know more than one another thinks.

I had the Budokan copy from RedPont. And many more that I can't remember ;D

The shop near my home back in early 90's was Megasoft. It was small and dark full of computer magazine posters and kids. I bought my late childhood there :D
