The Southern Cross Stunts Trophy

About / FAQ

Last update: 22-01-2023

So, what exactly is this all about?

This site is dedicated to the classic racing game Stunts. Here you will find tools and mods for the game, as well as other projects about it. Chances are that you already met Stunts at some point if you reached this site. In case you haven’t not, let’s just say that Stunts is a simple game, but one that prizes its players’ creativity by giving them freedom to design their own tracks and race them as they will. That has allowed it to keep its charm untarnished for more than three decades decades. Furthermore, Stunts allows players to exchange tracks and replays quite easily, thus making hotlap competitions like this one possible. You can find a lot more information about Stunts by browsing the ever-growing Stunts Wiki.

Why does the name of this site ends with “trophy”?

The site is named after The Southern Cross Stunts Trophy, a Stunts competition hosted here which is currently on hiatus. For the moment, you can check its archives, which include tracks, results and replays, and read on its rules.

C’mon, competitions of a decades old game? Surely you must be kidding!

I kid you not - after all these years there is an active community of Stunts players involved in tournaments, modding and other stuff, and it serves as evidence on how great a game Stunts is. You can reach all competitions by the Stunts Portal - some of them are active, others may be on a mid-season break.

I would love to join you all, but I can’t get Stunts to run on my computer

As the years go by, it becomes less and less common to have access to a true DOS environment on which to run old games such as Stunts. But fear not: DOSBox is a convenient DOS-system emulator that allows to run Stunts flawlessly under XP, Vista, Linux and other systems. You can find tips on how to setup DOSBox for Stunts on the DOSBox Wiki article.

This site is really nice, but I would like to meet the racers and the people involved

Don’t be shy then: visit the Stunts Forum, register there and start posting! :) For specific discussions on this site and tournament, there is a subforum there.

Hakyll is an awesome Haskell library for generating static sites. I use it to build the site.

Just one more question: who is behind this site?

OK, please allow me to introduce myself… I am Daniel Mlot, more widely known as Duplode, a Brazilian Stunts racer and manager of this competition. You may contact me using the competition mail address (; replace _AT_ with @), or you can find me and leave a message at the Stunts Forum (this is my profile there). And of course, no tournament would be possible without the support of the wonderful Stunts community spread around the globe. Thanks folks ;)

Thank you for visiting. See you on the scoreboard!
