Mods and files

Here are links to custom cars, Stunts mods and other files of interest. Some of these are links to external download pages; these are highlighted with a wine background.

File Version Author Description
Stunts Broderbund 1.1 DSI Inc. ZakStunts distributes the de facto standard version of Stunts for competitions, with a few cars and add-ons bundled. A number of other tools can be found in their downloads page.
4D Sports Driving (1991 release) Mindscape 1.1 (Feb 25 1991) DSI Inc. The once thought lost 1991 version of 4D Driving, brought to light thanks to Marco and GTAMan15. The differences with respect to the better known versions haven’t been fully documented yet, so it is quite possible you’ll find something new by giving it a spin!
DOSBox 0.74 (as of 2011-03-08) DOSBox Team The emulator which makes it possible to run Stunts on modern systems. Guides on DOSBox configuration can be found through this Stunts Wiki article.
stressed 2021-03-07 snapshot release (post-0.2.1) dstien The modding tool for Stunts, which made most of the mods here possible. The link leads to the Windows binary; the sources can be found at GitHub.
StuntsCarSwapper 0.1; r. 1 Duplode This program allows for easily moving Stunts car files from your game folder to a backup directory and restoring then when desired. Useful for controlling clutter in the car selection menu or for working around the 32-car limit. Note: the program runs on Java. In case you don’t have it installed on your computer, go here and look for “Download JRE”.
JRPLInfo 0.1; r. 1 Duplode A new take on the replay information viewer theme. To the usual RPLInfo feature set, JRPLInfo adds directory browsing, extensible car information tables, penalty time and car bonus corrections and basic support for scoreboard and .HIG generation. The link provides the Java “executable”; a source-only package is also available.
repldump 2013-02-10 release dstien A restunts-powered tool for exporting game state data generated from a replay. Usage notes will be added in due course; meanwhile, see the relevant forum post.
Bliss 2.5.8 Cas An external track editor with a focus on user-friendliness, Bliss is the first serious alternative to the venerable TrackBlaster in a long while. This package includes Windows, Linux and DOS versions. Formerly known as Cas-Stunts. If you need help with running or using Bliss, head over to its forum topic. See also its official page on the Race For Kicks site.

Custom cars

To install any of these, unpack all of the files into your Stunts folder. More detailed instructions may be available in bundled readme files. Note these cars will work correctly with the 1991 version of Stunts, as well as with both PC versions of 4D Sports Driving, but not with 1990 Stunts.

First generation custom cars

A selection of custom cars from the early days of Stunts modding, affectionately known as “cheat cars”. As these cars predate Stressed, they don’t have custom graphics (at least not yet).

File Version Author Status Description

Miscellaneous mods

To install any of these, backup the original files (if existing) and put the files into your Stunts folder overwriting if needed. Note that for .3SH or .VSH graphics files you will need to move away any .P3S or .PVS files sharing the file name from the Stunts folder so that the new files are loaded.
