Race for Kicks
« on: December 09, 2016, 06:18:08 AM »
Every competition should have a place in the forum, so here is a thread for Cas' holiday OWOOT competition.

Competition site: http://dimioca.com/r4k
Driving rules: Strict OWOOT (IRC-like, speed-gathering bumps allowed, tunnel roof driving forbidden.)
Replay handling: RH is allowed; if you feel like driving NoRH you can mark your replays as such.

Do check it out -- a neat first track for Melange awaits you.

Another possibility is Road Rash, though we would need to make a few motorcycles for Stunts  :D

Thanks, Duplode, for creating this topic and thank you guys for joining again. I haven't been checking the replays or writing here or racing in ZakStunts these last days because I'm on a trip. I'm currently in Puerto Madryn, in the Patagonia, South of Argentina. I will be returning home this Sunday and I'll be active again. I tried to post a message in R4K and discovered a bug. It looks like the session system conflicts with NoScript (a Firefox plugin that I use) and even when I enable the site IP, I still can't remain logged in (which did work from my home computer). When I tried to write a message, it not only logged off, but also deleted another message Leo had sent, so I have to make my code blocker-proof. Another thing I want to do is develop a NoRH verification system so that a handicap can be given to benefit NoRH replays.

This track, Dubai, I made very quickly, so any comments on it are welcome :)

The domain is down and I really don't understand well why. I'm trying to solve it. The server is working fine. So you can use this link:

Cas, please also submit data for the stunts portal at www.stunts.hu!

check the ZakStunts entry and pls provide the same data, I'd be glad to have one more competition listed on the site!

Thanks, Zak. Here I'm posting the banner, same size as the others, also GIF. The data could be:
Name: Race for Kicks
Status: Active
Manager: Cas
Length: Individual races
Replay Handling: Optional
Cars used: Assigned per track
Track interval: Varies
Link to: http://dimioca.com/r4k

More specific and variable information can be gathered from http://dimioca.com/r4k/tour.cfg, which is a text file. Each line contains a variable name, equals sign and a value and this is updated for every race. Relevant variables:

tour: Gives the tournament name, currently "Race for Kicks". Likely to stay the same
cttitle: Name of current track
ctauthor: Author of current track
ctdeadline: Deadline string
ctcurcar: Car for current track
startdate: Date the race started

There's no need for you to read these, but there they are, available.

Could you also make a json file like the one for ZakStunts? It would plug right in and appear as a new race at the top of the portal.

Thank you, guys!  I had forgotten to give a description. Thanks for adding it as well!

I'll take a look again at the json file to understand the format. Right now, my site does not automatically build the cfg file anyway, so the json would be written by me manually just like the cfg, but my intention is that I can later update that from the administration panel, like I do with the handling of replay files and the highscore table. I'll let you know when I have that working :)
