Coastal Revenge - I'm getting flashbacks! - This was the first ZakStunts track I competed on, so it has a special place in my heart 😍 - Tragically, with R4K I can't use all the tricks I've learnt since then! 😭 - But looking forward to the challenge!

Congratulations, guys! And thanks too for the good track, @Erik Barros! Also, welcome, @Wesbat! Nice to have you here at Race For Kicks

Thanks @Erik Barros! It's unfortunate I couldn't have another attempt on your track in the final week — I'll give it another go just for fun later on!

Congratulations @KyLiE, @Alan Rotoi and @Duplode!!!

Thanks @Erik Barros for a great track! All replays have been made public. Well done @Alan Rotoi and @Duplode!

@sebastianali, I don't use DBGL, but I've sent you a private message with the CPU and graphics configuration that I use with the standard version of DOSBox when running .

Thanks for the warm welcome @Erik Barros and @KyLiE, for answering my question and for the useful driving tips - see you on the racetrack!

Oh man, I come at the last moment. Hi again. My old PC just stopped working and after a long time, I bought a new one. Now I'm using DBGL to play the game, but I don't know what the best settings are to make look more crisp, or do I just stick with the default ones (surface, original resolution and scale2x)? Because the other ones look blurrier or make my screen smaller. Thanks.

Welcome @Wesbat! I've just verified your replay. @Erik Barros is correct, your replay file name can be anything you like when uploading it to the website.
Erik Barros @2023-09-25 12:09:07 UTC
Hey Wesbat, welcome!! The file name can be named according to your preference. When uploaded to the website, it automatically changes to a specific pattern. I know it's hard at first to get into these competitions. I recommend reading the ZakStunts Driving School guide where there are important tips and there is also a very good series of videos on YouTube: Stunts - Retro Game Playlists

Hi everyone, I heard about R4K on the DOS Game Club podcast, and since I love , I'm entering some races! I am not sure how to name the replay filename. I searched the forum and wiki, and looked at filenames of past races to try a best guess, but ultimately failed to identify what the numbers after R4K mean - so I put [month number][min][sec][msec].
Cas @2023-09-19 18:16:54 UTC
Thanks! I've had a few very busy days doing a selection task for a job I hope I get.
KyLiE @2023-09-15 12:50:15 UTC
Happy birthday @Cas!
Duplode @2023-09-11 15:02:06 UTC
It's a very interesting combo indeed!
Alan Rotoi @2023-09-10 21:06:49 UTC
Great idea to add a long straight to the track because you can improve your shifting skills there, which is very important too. Great track and car combo. I missed this car.
Cas @2023-09-08 03:09:48 UTC
@Erik Barros - It's a good track! Thanks for posting it with us!
KyLiE @2023-09-08 01:35:20 UTC
You're welcome @Erik Barros! It's great to finally have the Lotus Esprit on the track here.
Erik Barros @2023-09-06 22:40:30 UTC
Thanks @Cas and @KyLiE for the opportunity to do a track. I hope it's been fun. And @Cas, thanks for Bliss, it's really great to draw with it.
Cas @2023-09-06 22:32:48 UTC
I finally made some time to post a replay here! It definitely makes a huge difference to take the first turn, but before I did, I managed to make a blind NoRH replay, so I uploaded it too anyway.
