The Man Trailer (Directors Cut)

This is a short film made by my mates back in 2001-2002. It's a classic, what more can I say.

Australasian League F1 Series

I thought it would be a good idea to post links to the points files here as well as on the ARSE forum. A basic PDF file of the current standings in the AAL F1 series can be found here (aal_f1_points_table.pdf). If you would like more detail why not download it in either OpenOffice Calc or Excel format.

FishMark 06 Released ;)

At the moment it seems like the only good thing to come out of Fish Hunter is the benchmark and because of this I've made FishMark 06. FishMark 06 is just a standalone version of Fish Hunter with the game play removed.

FishMArk 06

There are currently are two versions available for download, the full version and the lite version. The full version is 100% self contained and doesn't require anything else on the computer to run, but it also weighs in at 3.55MB's. The lite version on the other hand requires that you have Shockwave 10 installed, but it's only 152KB. Both versions run from the same code base, so the end results should be the same (unless you have some weird version of shockwave installed).

Update
Benchmark Results!

Fish Hunter... what the?

I thought I'd post a link to a game I created years ago called Fish Hunter. It's easy to play, all you have to do is point and shoot ;)

Fish Hunter

So if you have nothing else to do why not give it a go.

Update
I've put a chart online with the benchmark stats people have sent me from Fish Hunter. The chart can be found here.

AAL F1GP Race 1

I had a very odd race... I qualified 4th and I thought I'd made an ok start until we reached the first chicane. This is where I decided to go through the sand trap instead of trying to force my way back onto the racing line. To make things worse I was checking to see if it was safe to rejoin the road and accidentally pressed the speed limiter, so when I did rejoin I wasn't accelerating (not used to the button layout on my new wheel). When I worked out that it was on I quickly disabled it and spun, but this wasn't helped by the taps from behind. So at this point I was in last place and I think at least 20 seconds behind the leader.

For the first few laps after the incident I was checking the car over and making sure I hadn't done any major damage. The car seemed to be ok and the tyres didn't look that bad so I started to push a bit harder as I was catching some of the back markers. The goal for the race at this point was just to make sure I finished and got some points.

Over the next 27 laps I slowly worked my way up to about 6th place. I could see I was gaining on PS13t who was on the tail of Shaun and they seemed to be slowing each other up a bit. Just before I pitted PS13t must have made a mistake and ended up only a second away from me. The only problem was that I had to pit a lap earlier than PS13t because my tyres were going off and making it hard to drive. Once we were back racing again I caught up to PS13t and managed to get passed when he made a mistake coming onto the banked section.

A few laps later, as I was pushing to catch Shaun who was 13 or so seconds ahead, I made a mistake and spun on the exit of the turn before the first split. This must have scared the crap out of PS13t, forcing him to take to the grass to avoid an accident (sorry about that). This spin killed any hope I had of catching Shaun (not that I really had any) and put me a few seconds behind PS13t. I now had to push harder than ever to catch PS13t.

After a few laps of crazy driving I managed to catch PS13t and then pass him which put me into 3rd. At this point Shaun had to pit again for fuel and soon after that he was disconnected. This was a shame because he deserved 2nd place and had been driving a fantastic race. So now all I had to do was drive clean and finish the race to take 2nd place. Although I did scared myself on the last lap as my tyres cooled off and I almost spun coming out of the hairpin (sorry again PS13t).

So that's was my race and I have to say I had a lot of fun driving it.
