Hey!  Nice you solved it. I was going to suggest other ideas. Hope we see you in the scoreboard soon! :)

Thanks again guys!

Boxer indeed makes it own C:drive per game. Here are all my costum tracks and replays located. I tried to put the Zack track which is currently used in the competition in that drive and it showed up in the game.

So I guess, problem solved!

I'll go and play the game a little bit more. And maybe I'll even participate in a couple of races in the future. It sounds and looks pretty cool!

Can you configure the stunts directory as floppy drive? Dosbox (and i assume boxer) isolate the disk after starting. So new files are not seen by the game. But if loaded as floppy drive it acts as removable medium and you can take and drop files on the fly. (It is very useful for replay checking)

Quote from: Help Needed on February 20, 2024, 08:38:36 PMI'll look into the the dosbox answer later. I did downloaded the Stunts game from your website (zakstunts 2024 edition) so it would be a bit strange if there would be files missing from that download.

I'm going to make a suggestion that's probably not it, but it happens to be what's on my mind. I reinstalled Stunts a few days ago because my hard drive crashed, and one of the first signs that it was going to crash, looking back on it,  was problems with the installation and running of some programs because files had become corrupted, including Stunts. So that's probably not why you seem to be missing a file, but in that low odds scenario where that is why you seem to be missing files I don't want to not have suggested it. (I didn't get the same error you describe, I got the one you get when cars don't have all the right files available.)

A less frightening option is that some security program has blocked one of the files as suspicious, maybe a McAfee free trial or something, but reputable software sometimes does this too. i've never seen that happen with Stunts, but at this point I'm just guessing.

Thanks for the quick answers guys!

But after re-installing Boxer it somehow does save the tracks and lap times. It still doesn't play the the imported tracks though. So I guess it (for some weird unknown reason) saves the tracks and times in a different folder than the Stunts folder. I've tried searching for them on my laptop but it can't seem to find them. So that will be the next mystery to solve.

You get the message when files are missing.
I have a list of files somewhere...
EDIT: found them. These are all the original files except the game itself. If you have a clean copy they should all be there.

Hi there, sounds mysterious. I'm sure one of our Dosbox experts will drop by in the next few days at most, but let me take a stab at it first.

Quote from: Help Needed on February 20, 2024, 07:44:21 PMAlso, I've played Stunts a bit on Boxer (a Mac based emulator) but here it had the problem that it couldn't save any tracks or replays. I've even tried to copy one of your tracks into the Stunts folder but even that one didn't appear in the game itself. It only showed the tracks that where already included in the base game. Other games had this problems to (the lost files of Sherlock Holmes for example) so I tried Dosbox but that gives the problem described above.
I don't know Boxer, but if this happened on Dosbox it would be because you're placing the new track in the game while the emulator already has the game loaded. In Dosbox you'd fix that by exiting from the game, mounting a new virtual drive (the "mount K D:\wherever\stunts" part) and starting from that drive.

QuoteMaybe a stupid question but I'm quite a noob with dosbox. But after I insert the Stunts_k.exe code into dosbox it seems to start up Stunts normally. But after a few seconds it gives the following instruction:

Loading Stunts: Please insert disk 'B'. Press any key when ready...

Whatever I do I just can't seem te get right of this message. I've looked online and it seems that a few other people had this problem. Unfortunately they didn't have any solutions.
Hmmm, that does sound weird. Could you do me a favor and try to start Stunts_k without typing the .exe? I never type .anything in Dosbox, and I feel there might have been a reason for that. Also, which version of the game and which version of Dosbox are you using? You could try the Zakstunts edition. There's nothing weird in it, it's just version 1.1 with some extra cars and skidding sounds for dirt tracks (which the original game didn't have), but it's a version I know is clean and good because I (re)downloaded it just a few days ago.

If that helps: happy to help! If that didn't help: hold on, help is on the way!

So I turn to you experts for help. Does anyone of you have any experience with one of the two problems above? And if so, how did you fix this?

Thanks in advance!
