This is not original either, but I have extracted the contents of the ADF images.

Just bought boxed 1.2 on Ebay. Also noticed this set of unboxed BB on 5ΒΌ", but I'll rather wait for another box. They pop up now and then, but they're usually gone by the time I've seen the mail for the automated search.

The file structure seems quite similar to PC versions, but it seems more stuff is integrated. I wonder if we could port the physics engine part to PC. Probably not.

Anything is possible, besides finding time to do it. Clvn made some impressive progress on restunts before Christmas, so a port of BB1.1 will be ready any decade now.

btw Marco has mad skills when it comes to driving games. If you ever played F1GP2 at Ace level without driving aids you'll understand after watching this video:

Awesome - and all that with keyboard controls! I still have an original F1GP2 disk. Must get it working somehow  :)

Googling for UnskilledStunts led to two interesting mentions:

So this community now exists in the academic world as a research object. That's cool.
But we can't be quite sure.

Wow, it's been a while since I last updated this thread! Mentions of Stunts do keep popping up:

https://dosreloaded.de/forum/index.php/Thread/869-Stunts-Eure-Strecken/?pageNo=1 -- Still-running thread from 2017 in a German forum. One highlight is a pretty Monte Carlo recreation, featuring the MP4/4.
https://rpgcodex.net/forums/index.php?threads/lost-and-forgotten-except-by-us.98735/page-20#post-5717349 -- A hat tip to ZakStunts in a 2018 forum thread.
https://www.giantbomb.com/stunts/3030-15918/ -- dreadnaut told me about this one last year: a Wiki for games, kinda like a modern take on good old GameFAQs. I edited the Stunts article to add a section about the online community; happily, it was approved.
https://www.high-voltage.cz/sortky/bliss-editor-trati-pro-stunts/ -- A post about Bliss on a Czech site. There is a Stunts tag there, and they even have held a race this year! I gotta add it to the Archive!

:o  Amazing!

How come so many other people are interested in Stunts and remain isolated from us?  We should be permanently exchanging our interests!  Anyway, it's great to see that it's not just us. There's plenty of life in Stunts still!

I have to admit I'm utterly surprised about the article on Bliss!  I thought my site was only visited by our community, but it looks like some random people do take a look from time to time... frequently enough for one of them to be willing to write an article on what they've found. I reckon it's more likely that they've got to Bliss via stunts.hu and then found the Dimioca link?  Who knows?

It's very clear, though, that no other community interested in Stunts is as large as ours. This whole thought makes me feel as if I were working at SETI in the 70s, wondering how empty or full of life the universe is and feeling amazed at every bubble I can hear popping in the aether :)
Earth is my country. Science is my religion.
