Works very well on my MacBook Pro and is good fun. Neat graphics and gameplay, although driving the car well takes a little practice using the computer keyboard. No problems with stability (as some have reported in earlier reviews) and performance is excellent. Good fun.

Works perfectly on my G4 1GHz eMac test machine here, both in 10.4 and 10.5. I'm not sure what else I can do other then get you to bring your machine over to test with ;)

The G4 is the lowest spec we support, and some will work better than others, depending on your firmware, video card, ram and of course OS version. Some obviously wont work at all, like yours.

I'd say it's pretty boring (at least the demo).
It feels like the cars tires is made of banana-skids and all that happens is you se ”supper spinout” coming up when doing a flip with the car. And sometimes a voice say ”egg time” (?) in conjunction with the car flipping. Also the camera handling doesn't always feel optimal at times. I'm sorry to say, but over all it feels like the game is a bit unfinished. More like a demo of a potential future game.

The graphics run very smooth with ”everything maxed out” on the ”generation before current” MacBook Pro I have. At the same time the graphics aren't that sophisticated so I guess it should run very smooth...

I'd like to see more of a racing track game (start to finnish) with bonuses and jumps. Or something like that. With better car physics and some mud flying around. :)

Thanks for the feedback, but this is not a racing game nor a track style game.

It's a free form driving & stunt game with various challenge game styles. It's far from unfinished... I think maybe a better review would have been...

"I was looking for a racing game and StuntMANIA was not what I was looking for." ?

Also, the camera is switchable (1-4 keys) as different tasks and skills work with better with different camera angles.

What is your G4 spec? We have happy customers using G4 700 eMacs with radeon 7500 video cards. Have you tried turning on the FORCE LOW QUALITY option in he Game Options screen that we specifically put in there for the G4 and low spec machines? You wont be able to run this sraight out of the gate with no tweaking for such an old piece of hardware. You wil need to be runing 800x600 or lower with all graphics features turned off and low quality settings.

If you're on an iBook G4 with 10.5, avoid this program.

Works fine until it's time to start the gameplay. Then all it does is play cool music while displaying an amazingly corrupted screen. I couldn't command-q or force quit the app. Had to restart. Completely useless.

Fullscreen mode is the same deal, except all you get is black, no screen corruption.

So sad, it looked like an awesome game from the screenshots...

I had hours of fun, and that was just the demo. I love the idea of a "just go crazy" gameplay where you can do whatever you like.

the options for the graphics are very configurable, and I like that you can choose play it in a window rather than full screen.

keep up the good work :)

Your welcome. We also hate it when little things like this go wrong. So we are glad it's fixed.

No, the go crazy mode will go forever, until you hit ESC. It's a totally free form level.

We will me adding more challenge game modes in future updates that will include a "clear the level" as fast as you can mode, as well as a few other ideas we have that we think will be lots of fun.

Many thanks for fixing it so quickly.

I really enjoy playing StuntManiaPro when I want to wind down after a stressful day at work.
And it looks like version 2 is getting even better.

By the way, does anything happen when a level has been cleared on a 'Just Go Crazy' game?

(I'm sure I've managed to totally clear several of the levels, but nothing happens.)

Yes, we had a corrupt archive, and it has just been replaced with a working version.

Sorry for any inconvenience.

With regards to your limited downloads, they are always reset for you when new updates come out, so you never run out.

Lots of fun, had a bit of a problem with version 1.2 working on my old machine, but had that problem taken care of by the developers in less than a day.

There seems to be a problem with the Pro 2.0 version on Intel Macs.

When double-clicking on the application, I get an alert which tells me: "You can't open the application StuntManiaPro_2_UB.app" because it is not supported on this architecture."

If I look inside the application package by using Show Package Contents, I am able to launch the game by opening StuntMANIA!pro2 from inside the package.

As I'm only allowed to download the game a limited number of times, I am concerned I may use up my allotted downloads on versions of the game that don't work properly.

Do the developers have a means of dealing with this situation?

Many thanks for clarifying that so quickly!

(Also, it may be an idea to put a mention about the counter being reset for each update on the FAQ.)
