LSR The impossible track

Recommended Posts

kbios

This track is called impossible not because you cannot complete it (it's actually very doable) but because it's not possible to make it in the in-game editor. It relies on quirks in how the game engine works to offer a unique experience ;) try it!

 

Download

Prerequisites

 

IMPORTANT NOTES

- Due to how stunt rally works, before loading this track in either racing mode or construction mode you'll need to load each track in the "prerequisites" zip. You need to do this every time you open the game.

- You can open this track in the editor, but if you'll save it you'll damage it.

Can't seem to get it to work, even after doing this - I'm on version 0.3.7.7 of the game, if that matters (the version from the DVD release with the bonus videos and such).

Even after loading a track from every biome the game still crashes. I'm just using normal Stunt Rally?

Well, there's more than one version of "normal" Stunt Rally:

And that topic doesn't even cover version 0.3.7.7 from the DVD release (which I'm using at the moment) since its existence wasn't known of yet.

 

Going by this topic, it looks like kbios is probably using the earliest known version, 0.3.5.1. I wouldn't be surprised if they optimized/changed how the game loads things in later versions, making it truly an impossible track, haha. Well, more reason to make me want to hunt down a copy of 0.3.5.1 I guess.

Thank you both for the report :) So it turns out it does matter which specific tracks you load before the impossible one, I've been able to reproduce the crash by loading the "bad" ones. I've added to the first post a link to a pack of 4 tracks which work for me, try them and tell me how it goes :)

 

jamesster, I have both version 0.3.5.1 (in english) and 0.3.7.7 (in italian) of the game, although my 0.3.7.7 is not as cool as yours haha it's a simple CD

Ah, yep, worked perfectly! Very cool track, cool to see a mashup like that, but also pretty fun to play, got some tricky traps in there, haha.

Interesting! That's the first time someone's reported having a CD copy of 0.3.7.7 as far as I know.

Holy moly! If this track can't be made in the editor, how'd you manage to create it?

Basically I have reverse engineered the trk file format, I've created the track in an hex editor haha

It would be cool to create an external editor to make these kind of tracks, that's a big pile of work though

An external track editor would be a pretty fun tool. It would also be cool if you figured out a way to extract and repack all of those .mdf or .bin or .dat files floating around in Stunt Rally's resource files.

Maybe they could all be in a single modding tool program for SR.
