It's October 31st in Springfield, and Bart is ready for the best Halloween yet! Unfortunately, things don't go as he expects, and some bizarre events ensue. Play as Bart and experience the whole night's events through 7 spooky missions! There's also some extra content (collectibles/costumes).

WHERE HAVE I BEEN?

This i gotta try :D
This is super cool!!!!!
Wow, this Mod sounded very pleasure, and I find it interesting while I play the β€œBart's Halloween Caper”, but awesome job!

Btw, which is the original voice before the Ferrari – Black stops the car on Mission 6?

I'll gotta say, it's the best Halloween Mod ever!
Why I can't enter any vehicles during mission 2 and 4?
It is a very good mod, without a doubt another of the best Halloween mods that exists in DonutTeam! πŸ˜ˆπŸ‘»πŸŽƒ
I really appreciate you didn't make the wrenches too easy to find, I really have to look in every corner of the map. One thing I didn't understand was what am I supposed to "avoid" during the part where Bart had to collect the cola crate? I just kept failing the mission as I walked over to collect it. Other than that, I like how you don't fail the player if their car explodes during a race, and the difficulty seems to be just right. Good work m8.
Thanks, everyone! This is a follow-up post where I'll answer some questions (answers in spoiler blocks, click to open) and provide some more information.

Those voices are pre-existing sound clips from The Simpsons Game, just at a higher pitch.

Those missions (well, all of Mission 4 and part of Mission 2) are designed and intended to be played without driving a vehicle.

The idea in that stage is that you avoid getting too close to the Kwik-E-Mart (the fail trigger covers the glassy area and extends to the parking spaces in front of it, and the idea is that you could get caught taking the cola by Apu, since the truck was delivering it there), but on reflection I can see that it would've been better to clarify in the mod somehow what "detection" meant. I'll make sure I do that.

I've become aware of a couple of things I'd like to improve/fix up (for example, the cola crate stage being a bit vague, and card quotes still showing), so soon enough I'll update the mod to improve these things and more. It'll be a soft update, though, so I won't bump the thread.
Hey Addy, dunno if you've encountered this, but every time I start to control the RC car the mod crashes no matter what. I'll update you if I can figure out what's going on.

Uh-oh, that doesn't sound good. I myself haven't encountered it, and I haven't been reported this issue by anyone else. Nonetheless it bears investigating. Something that would help a lot with regards to that is if you could upload and link a crash dump here on the forum. Make sure "Save Crash Dump" is enabled in the launcher's settings and then repeat the steps that lead up to the crash. After it crashes, open "Documents\My Games\Lucas' Simpsons Hit & Run Mod Launcher\Crashes" and find the .DMP file with the most recent timestamp as it's filename. If you could upload that to a file hosting website and then share a link here, I can get the crash dump to Lucas, who can hopefully understand from it roughly what the issue is, and then I can go off of that. Thanks.
