@ZdnBurns we have a telegram group about Stunts. There are current pipsqueaks and some ex-pipsqueaks too but who loves the community and the game as well like. Search me as @patriciosuna and I'll add you.  :)

I'm a really big fan of this game, but a terrible driver. And a great admirer of this community! It's been more than 30 years and you never stop surpassing yourselves!

@mrdries , what fantastic work! I don't know if I should ask, but I can't: Could you publish the files (.TRK) that you used to generate the images for your catalogue?

Once again, I thank everyone for the innovations and this fantastic atmosphere!
I'll send a little fun track I made, inspired by the Mirage and Avoid the Palm, as soon as I discover how to do it...

Looks very interesting - it even has two ISA buses to the outside. Never heard of this CPU (M6117C) before - looks also interesting.

This pocket 386 machine with USB drive support sounds like the perfect portable Stunts machine:

Great work! Very impressive to see the whole history in one big interactive chart.

Quote from: Cas on February 15, 2024, 10:05:30 PMHow far back can this be done?  Is it possible to have a condensed graph of the whole 21st century?  (That is, beginning with the opening of ZakStunts in 2001)

The data does go all the way back to 2001. That graph might become a little busy, but if eloratings.net can do it, why can't we? :)

All right, here is the full history graph! I'll eventually tidy it up a bit and add to the site proper.

This uses the same chart library than the aforementioned eloratings.net, and so the controls are the same: hover to show the legend and highlight individual pipsqueaks, click to the left of the vertical axis to clear highlights, drag horizontally to zoom, double-click to reset zoom, drag the lower right corner to resize. All races up to ZCT274 are covered, with ZCTP1, ZCTP2 and ZCTP3 being displayed as 14.5, 15.5 and 16.5 for the sake of expediency.

(Cc @Cas , @Argammon , @alanrotoi and everyone else curious about seeing more of the historical data  :))

Quote from: alanrotoi on June 21, 2024, 11:02:07 PMAnother masterpiece of design and adaptation to Stunts. The most remarcable detail of the car is the unique and clever use of the needle in my opinion.

Did you use the real performance data?

I used the base specifications of the le mans race car: http://www.mulsannescorner.com/SAE920309.pdf
And aproximate the best I could by analysing car's accelaration on old video footages (as I stated on stunts wiki https://wiki.stunts.hu/wiki/Mazda_787B). So it was the best approximation of "real performance" I've found...

The fender addition actually really helps the 3D feel inside the cockpit.
Really enjoying getting used to this car, and very much looking forward to racing it in R4K!

You are welcome!
I originally intended to get a visible fender, but I backed off on the first release because of it always being orange. But I honestly missed that, so now the cockpit has a more immersive feel :)
