Stunts Chat / Google/Bing etc.

Hello pipsqueaks!

I just realized our competitions appear quite low in the search results on google and bing. At least that is the case for me and is a bit unfortunate if we want to be found by pipsqueaks interested in the game.

For example, when I search for "stunts racing game" I do not find on the first 5 pages. Searching for "stunts broderbund" shows the wiki on the bottom of the first page. So it very much depends on what exactly people search for.

Is anybody aware of a trick to manipulate google so that the stunts portal shows up higher in the list of search results?  ;)

According to this page:

I got 0.04 points in C59. However, I never raced that track, and the 0.04 points belong to Lise.

Or are you saying Lise is my ghost?  ;D

A friend showed that to me and it can guess most "famous" people. But what dropped my jaw is that it was actually able to guess "Argammon" right. Can it guess the stunts champions?
This topic will be about two issues. Thus I was not sure were to post it. Anyways, let's get to the issue(s)

1. Krys Toff

First, I decided to send you an e-mail and bury the thing. Then I reconsidered and thought I should adress this on forum.

"Someone" send me an anonymous e-mail and directed me to negative forum posts from you about me. Why? To make me race? I have no idea.

But that's not the point. I really cannot understand how you can talk in such a negative way behind the back of a person who left a community a long time ago. Add to that I thought we had a "decent" relationship. All I can say is that I am really disappointed about your coword behaviour.

If I did not read your post(s) and we met, by chance, in france. I bet you would not have said that stuff into my face. Rather like "Hey long time no see, how have you been" "Let's drink together" ...

I do not want to adress your opinion since I already gave the whole issue more attention than it deserves. I will just say that you are so wrong on what you say. But again, it's not worth arguing about dead sheep.

2. Competition 2009

I am pretty sure I won't participate. I wish a lot of fun to those who still participate, though.

Chat - Misc / Reaction times.
August 28, 2007, 12:44:12 AM
I was wondering about reaction times today.

The first question that comes to mind is whether there is a high correlation between a good reaction times and doing well in stunts. Here we have to distinguish between rh and norh of course.

Then Akoss is doing well at some arcade flash games. The question is if he just has a good reaction time or whether strategy is an important factor.

Here's a simple reaction time test:

It would be nice if many of you would try to take the test and post your result here. And please don't cheat. I did not open this thread to generate some ego-trips  ;D
If I get any meaningfull conclusions I will post them here!

Thanks in advance!
Competition 2006 / Bye bye :-)

Hi pipsqueaks!

I thought I should do a retirement post and not vanish silently forever :-)
Well most times it was fun to race here if you don't count all those childish flamewars and there have been many nice duels.

Many thanks go to the CS team for racing together many races.

Regrets go to the fact I didn't manage to finish even ONE! season.Anyways it's time to learn humility so I can only say I am satisfied with what I've archieved here.

Oh and before I forget it. I don't hold grudges against anyone here anymore. Thank includes the guy from southern france.

To clarify again: I won't race this season so it's basically a retirement. I can't say much about the time after that but I may stay out for a long time ;-)

So I finally wish all of you a succesfull season 2007 and much fun on ZCT and the other competitions.

Bye bye ;-)

I won't tell who was playing as it doesn't really matter.
The game was played with 5 minutes per player only and at the end the moves seem to be even crazier as both players ran out of time and only had 30 secs left for the last 10 moves or so.

It's not a high quality game but fun to watch anyways.Black shouldn't have lost IMO.

General Chat - USC / USC new season rules
April 03, 2006, 04:42:34 PM
Let me evaluate some of them:

QuoteExtra points: 'Man of the race' +1 point (the winner can get it too if his performance was unexpected and excellent), IRC rules driving +1 point (you know, at least one wheel on the road and no tricks), activity bonus +1 point/race and leading time bonus +1 point/200 hours leading.

The "man of the race"  bonus is highly subjective!For example Usrin didn't deserve it last race as he admitted himself.Please remove it from the rules.

The IRC rules driving bonus is just silly.I just can't see the reason.You won't be able to reach a decent place if you race that way so you proly decided not to care about points anyways.What do you want with 1 point ?

The activity bonus makes no sense either.If someone misses a single race he already has a big disadvantage to someone who raced all races.So there is already an 'implicit' nonactivity malus in the rules.No need for the bonus.

The leading time bonus is to big.And I really hope the competition manager won't steal it from the rest of the tracers!!!

So please reconsider this rules.I think most pipsqueaks would agree with me on those points!

Competition 2006 / The NORH Scoreboard
January 24, 2006, 06:14:46 PM
To say the least I am a bit puzzled about the 2 leading times on the norh scoreboard.
They really look very strong to me and I am not a bad norh pipsqueak myself.
I know my racing skill is rusty and the Jaguar is not my car but even with continuing TWICE after crashing I only drove some 1.23.95.

The track is really hard as it's easy to crash into one of the many slaloms or to fail to skip the up/down cork,crash after the jump into the left right cork.

The natural conclusion would be to race a bit more carefully,which should cost some more time.

I've heard BJ is an amazing norh handling pipsqueak,though when we raced some races few years ago I bet him now and then but maybe he has improved.CTG is even a lot more puzzling,but maybe he suddenly became the stunts master,who knows :-)

Well guys,if you did not cheat you have my respect!

Competition 2005 / Message to Alain
June 03, 2005, 10:52:57 PM
Ok before I was writing this I got a 'Don't expect it to work,he won't say "sure why not"'
I will try anyways.

Reading BJ's post in the other forum made me think.
I won't continue those insults anymore,especially because I would like to have a relativly fun and peacefull meeting if I'll be able to be there.

I won't appologize what I did this time,I won't ask for an appology,and I won't give smart explanations for my behaviour either.
I'll just stop it from my part and see what happens.

[23:37] <ctg> hello
[23:37] <ctg> phenyl alanine
[23:37] <ctg> :)
[23:37] <alain1_> hi TH CTG
[23:38] <ctg> no newbies here
[23:38] <alain1_> ayrton is
[23:38] <ctg> I watched the logs of the last few weeks... poor
[23:38] <alain1_> he is fast
[23:38] <ctg> I mean in the active community life
[23:38] <alain1_> life is as poor
[23:38] <ctg> forum, chat, msn
[23:39] <alain1_> well i will race tomorrow on a bike and tomorrow night on a computer
[23:39] <alain1_> because 1.18 is not enough
[23:39] <ctg> 1:19.40 sounds good but too many possible speed increaser tricks are left
[23:40] <alain1_> i could win one second just finding a new thing
[23:40] <ctg> cool
[23:40] <alain1_> so if i find lots of new thing it will be very fast
[23:40] <ctg> :)
[23:40] <alain1_> 1:02?
[23:40] <ctg> maybe 1.10?
[23:40] <ctg> 1.02 LOL
[23:40] <ctg> that's absurd
[23:41] <alain1_> life is absurd
[23:41] <ctg> 1.10-1.12 is my final tip
[23:41] <alain1_> if absurd people flied, the sky would be dark
[23:41] <ctg> :)
[23:41] <alain1_> i tip on 1:03
[23:41] <alain1_> audi car is german, its robust
[23:42] <alain1_> no speed limit in germany
[23:42] <alain1_> even if its an urban legend
[23:42] <ctg> Argammon...
[23:42] <alain1_> last time he beat me with audi
[23:42] <ctg> he won't race
[23:42] <alain1_> just because he had my replays :)
[23:42] <ctg> hahaha
[23:43] <ctg> you know that Argie is fast
[23:43] <alain1_> no he is not
[23:43] <ctg> if he's motivated then he can be the best easily
[23:43] <alain1_> he does not know what max outing is
[23:43] <alain1_> he never proved it
[23:43] <ctg> do you think so?
[23:43] <alain1_> i think he does not play well
[23:44] <ctg> then let's wait for him coming back
[23:44] <alain1_> even when quitting orion he was not better
[23:44] <ctg> and analyse him
[23:44] <alain1_> i know him, i made him
[23:45] <alain1_> i think he is mentally ill
[23:45] <alain1_> but its a common illness :)
[23:45] <ctg> Argammon=german football: the opponent is leading by 2 goals. Let's play like grey uniform soldiers, without any beauty in the game and make 3 ugly goals...
[23:46] <ctg> the same with seconds on a lap
[23:46] <ctg> :)
[23:46] <alain1_> what did he won? dual way tracks... no talent, just  found a trick
[23:47] <alain1_> bonzai joe and argammon skills arent impressive or dangerous to a talented driver like alanrotoi
[23:47] <ctg> well... he couldn't win the last dual-way track
[23:47] <ctg> :)
[23:47] <alain1_> even i think argammon had nothing to compare with roy wiegerinck when he played against him
[23:48] <ctg> Roy was a phenomenon
[23:48] <ctg> you are the artist
[23:48] <alain1_> i won the first a dual way track discovering and showing the trick to argammon
[23:48] <alain1_> flower power
[23:49] <alain1_> the power geared corvette :)
[23:49] <ctg> akoss, the brain free power
[23:49] <alain1_> i didnt find the PG in audi yet
[23:49] <ctg> use Trabant
[23:49] <alain1_> why the hell akoss isnt better than that?
[23:49] <ctg> dunno
[23:49] <alain1_> you know him in real life... what is his problem? concentration?
[23:50] <ctg> Akoss has more talented in Stunts then me
[23:50] <ctg> is more
[23:50] <ctg> sorry
[23:50] <ctg> i'm tired
[23:50] <alain1_> and you won a zakstunts race...
[23:50] <ctg> yep
[23:50] <ctg> i think he has no sense to victories
[23:51] <ctg> Z45 - the biggest chance for him
[23:51] <ctg> but he gave up racing too early as he thought he will win
[23:51] <alain1_> what?
[23:51] <alain1_> really???
[23:51] <ctg> yes
[23:51] <ctg> he was sure his replay is unbeatable
[23:53] <ctg> 1 CTG Damage Inc.  1:29.20 manual 12-04   21:00 20

[23:53] <alain1_> hey you fucked him the french way
[23:53] <ctg> :)
[23:53] <ctg> his finish was crap
[23:54] <ctg> when i got the final replays after the race, I made Akoss' replay 0.5 sec better for the first try

You love to talk behind peoples back do you,dipshit?

I've been still following the community now and then while I away and all I see was Alain smart talking on the forum and news trying to look like some kind of vet to the newbies.And not only that.Also constantly talking shit behind other peoples back.
Let me sum it up:You SUCK big time Alain.Really  
I see nothing,no skill when I look at your replays.If Rotoi,ctg bonzai joe,ayrton,gutix,or even me  (list could be continued forever) just invests half as much time as you do we beat you easily.K
I've proven that more than ofter enough when I drove seriously,the last few month CTG didn't leave a hard driving alain any chance.

But your racing skills are not the main point here.I have really tried to calm the whole thing down during the last half year or so,unfortuntaly it killed any motivation to race.But however 'nice' I am to you,you still respond in this stupid arrogant and backstabbing way.
I got enough
You are the biggest TARD I have seen in ANY internet community.

Don't BOTHER to reply,cause I will just ignore your shit,or not even read it.AND BTW I agree with *** that your live racing time is a cheat.But YOU need it. /ignore on    ........ I am through

What's stunts reaper on the scoreboard?
Judging from his text it's 100% one of the old pipsqueaks,a newbie would never write like this :)

Anyways,I wonder why Zak didn't remove it from the scoreboard,instead of changeing its name? I mean it might influence others to do the same meaning it could end in chaos?

But thinking about it... If this is common practise I think I will send slightly different replays under 10 different names next month :) Interesting top 10 guaranted....

PS:I know it was supposed to be a joke,but still......but it should still be against the rules,which as I saw with my not counted december replay are followed very strictly =P

Posted: Wed Nov 19, 2003 7:52 pm    Post subject:

The last thing you could do to me: make me change to the insultive Alain  

Now i am full of love.

my racing career is over. I won few races, it has stopped. When i raced for victory, i was like a pup, biting and barking, now i am like a lion. I sleep.

A bit sad that peacefull period was so short.I know that if you keep insulting me everywhere I am feeling an urge to answer your bullshit.
That's hurting the whole community and it's in YOUR hands to stop ;)
Competition 2005 / Envious 'losers'
January 10, 2005, 09:55:03 AM
I remember a time long ago when I said the only way Alain drives so well is that he drives 100 hours per month.Now ctg is bugging me with the same shit :) Deserves me right? Perhaps.

Point is I think I can say I am better than Alain in liveracing wheter I am in good form or not,so it's likely he needs more time in RH also.
But likely is far away from being sure.He could have a higher efficiency in Rh:Imagine he would only need 2 tries to drive every corner perfectly and in one try he would leave the road.That would already screw the live race replay and he would have to drive  a lot slower there.While I might need 10 tries to drive a perfectly well corner with RH.
Trying to say: I could never have been sure about this comment.

I think both of those allegations  (ctg's and mine) have one thing in common:They are full of shit.And that's just because the allegator has no clue HOW long someone needs to drive his replay.

All that being said I appologize to Alain for coming up with such stupid allegations.Sometimes you realize your own faults only when you receive the same treatment from someone else :)
