The Permanent Competition (Tracks menu) in Race For Kicks admits replays being posted as GAR. If you post your replay that way, it will be verified as such. To be certified GAR, the replay has to follow your original guidelines!
Great, guys! I’ve been watching your replays 🙂 Yes, it’s a high-risk track and it’s long, so doing the whole thing in one go may require a few (long) attempts. This is why, when I posted it here, I wanted to also post a replay and didn’t have much time, so I chose to race “safe”. It’s practically an OWOOT replay, what I uploaded. Older replays I had on this track would not be OK to post, since they had been done with RH.
To be fair, when this track was featured in ZakStunts, a GAR scoreboard was active too, so it was indeed raced with NoRH, but GAR was not just NoRH: it was also stricter than OWOOT, so the rules were still very different from the ones in this leaderboard.
Hey, mate! Your avatar reminds me of Fury of the Furries, but I’m pretty sure it’s not from there. Nice to have you racing at the Stunts community! And I do have a few old computers, including a 486 and a Pentium (200MHz MMX). Unfortunately, I no longer have my first PC, a 386. I used to know all the details of each microprocessor, what was improved from the XT to the 286, to the 386, 486 and Pentium… but after that, it wasn’t the same and nowadays, I just buy whatever works… as long as it can run DOSBox 😛
Cheers, guys! I’m new here 🙂
So, Stunts is one of the first games I obtained when I had my first 386. I agree that it already played very smoothly on it. A friend of mine had it on his 286 and it was playable, but kind of uncomfortable there.
It’s always been a favourite to me, mostly because you could make your own tracks and crash in fantastic ways and then record it and replay it and show that to your friends. For racing, at a time when having more than one computer in the same room was a luxury, having scoreboards for each track was inviting to hot seating and endless afternoons trying to get to the top.
No sooner had the internet become an omnipresent thing than someone came up with the idea of taking it to the next level and exploiting the replay saving capabilities to actually compete online with people around the world. You won’t find many DOS games, especially from so early, that are still so alive today!
Hi, Jeffrey! I’m a member of the online Stunts community. We’re excited that you’re going to be discussing Stunts this month and well, I thought I should definitely register here.
We currently have four running tournaments and we’ve had many more in the past. ZakStunts is by far the best known and has been on since 2001. I’m actually running another called Race For Kicks at https://www.raceforkicks.com. I’m not a great racer myself. I’m more into building software tools for Stunts. But we have great racers and car makers too.
We do have a forum as well at https://forum.stunts.hu
