Yes it will work, it's just that you need to approximate it to a circle. If you give me the equation I could probably transform it to a more accurate one.

Thanks Tof.

For the next release, I've finished the level 5.
I'm working on the level 6 for now.

2 nice persons will help me on the graphical part (calimero, which has already send me some graphical evolutions of the player car, and who is volunteer for ameliorating some other pictures of the game like the objects, and bullis1 who will also rework the player car).
I'll probably write a new menu before the race chooser menu which will allow to choose to drive with either one or the other car.

Some more changes planned.
I'll give you more infos of the evolution of the game.

Regards

Laurent

For the musics :

If you want to play your own modules into the game, just copy them into the music directory and use the name of one of the modules already present :

circuit_01_music_file: FEELING.MOD
circuit_02_music_file: BANANA.MOD
circuit_03_music_file: DANPHY.MOD
circuit_04_music_file: MELON.MOD

Be just careful about the size of the mod if you only have 4 meg of RAM into your falcon.

If you want some music inserted in levels 5 to 8, just tell me.

regards
Laurent

I just checked the video (live) nice looking game! engine as some speed to it! look forward to the revisions!

Regards the cars, there is someone in the Indie Game Developers group on Facebook who has built some low poly less than 1250 ? car models. Whether you could use actual 3D models or perhaps make all the sprites you could want from them? I don't know! I will look out the link! He ran the designs as a kickstarter so it may or may not be viable!

no tyres squealing :) !!!

another thought... how about slapping the Wec Le Mans Graphics, course design and sounds into the engine ? :D :cheers: :cheers:

Thank you very much.

And you've not seen all.
With Calimero (graphics) and Templeton (graphics), we're reworking some parts of it.
I've currently added 2 more levels and 2 others are on the way.

I'm fixing some things here and there that were asked by YOU all.

I expect a Racer V1.1 near christmas.

Best regards

Laurent

Hi all,

Some good news :
- level 5 and 6 are finished (maybe some final polishing still to do)
- Level 7 is on the way
- Total rework of the main menu in included into the game now.
- One new player car by Templeton added with more positions, a new and better look.
- Some better timings when the player is in front of a climbing up road
- new fonts added
- Some rework of the sprites of the game by Calimero included

Still todo before the final release:
- finish level 7 and 8
- add tires animations
- add a squealing sound for the tires
- if possible, add a sliding car position

If you have some suggestions that I could add, don't hesitate to ask now, it's still time ;)

Regards
Laurent
Have fun, stay (H)Atari

Do you have Ready Set GO ! Samples? You could sample ST Speech, also the power ups could speak what they are in St Speech too .. Rowketts :)

ST speech Player names?

on my complete hijack mentioning earlier of Wec Le Mans

http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=32651

here is the thread with the GFX in ( ST 16 colour ) Could your engine be hijacked to recreate the game?

<> arcade version http://youtu.be/4l8vYJi1OeU

Or Maybe d:m:l might like to recreate http://youtu.be/Kket83oo0OA Cisco Heat for the Falcon :D :D 8)

Hi all atarians,

Just a little message to inform you that Racer is still not completly finished.
With Templeton and Xerus, we still have some ideas to integrate into the game.

But I promise you all a great experience on your Falcon.

Still one month (at least) to wait.

Best regards

Laurent

Can't wait to see it Laurent! Worked out with my sprites that somehow the blue and green channels are the wrong way around (I have no idea how that happened, red and blue would at least make some sense) but should work that out tonight. Don't want to get distracted building a huge engine so might start with a simple one screen game and then go from there. Thanks for your help man, and exited to play the completed Racer!
