I need help on deleting your tracks in the game.The reason for this is because whenever I save track I made it makes a new one.So if I edit the the track it makes a new track.Now the whole place is a mess.I just want to know how to delete it that is if you can delete them.

Hello, and welcome! To delete a track you have to delete the track file (which will be something like MYTRACK.TRK) in your Stunts folder; there isn't a command for doing that in-game.

The question isn't too surprising. There is a clear tendency towards abstracting further and further away from the file system, however bizarre that may sound to us. Hell, chances are that ten years from now knowing what is that funny square thing used as the "Save" icon will tag us as dinosaurs.

That's because fate is trying to tell you to get back to Stunts  ;)
But we can't be quite sure.

It already does... come on, a floppy disk! when have you last used a floppy disk?

Less than a year ago. But it was hard to find a computer with floppy disk slot. :D

Yes, it is me. No, I'm not back at racing (for now...)

Another reason to delete a track is that Stunts is able to manage at most 128 .trk files. If this number is reached, the track selector do not display the whole set of tracks available. ;)

I remember that from an old version of Stunts I had, but I have not encountered the problem since the download of my last file-package. For instance I have a map with all Zakstunts-tracks ever published and I can still see them in game. I don't know why? Maybe because the original exe-file is cracked?

Maybe the exe was tweaked in order to bypass the limitation. ;)

Strictly speaking, the limit is 256 files. That only corresponds to 128 tracks if you have high score files for all of them, so your ZakStunts archive directory will be fine as long as you don't drive the tracks. Incidentally, Competition Archive competition directories have to be split at ~80 tracks, as each track is usually accompanied by at least one replay.

That explains why I can still see all my Zakstunts-tracks in one directory. I haven't accompanied all the track-files with a highscore yet. Thanks for the advice about splitting the directories at 80 tracks.
