FreeBASIC karts...
« on: October 27, 2014, 12:16:53 AM »
Hey guys. Thanks to the new features in the compiler, I was able to find and squash the bugs that have been plaguing my engine for some time. Since I've always had a strong desire to do a kart racing game, I've decided to go ahead with it. Here's a video of a random map with a some random test objects and a few other karts.  Also, I had an idea which I think is pretty cool. For the characters in the game, I want to use characters from QBasic/FreeBASIC games. For instance, I was going to work on a sequel to Squealers TNT with Piptol, so I made a some Lightwave models of pigs, barnyard scenes, etc...That game never went anywhere. so I'm going to use some of that stuff in this game. You guys have any suggestions for other characters?

Edit: Made a better video which shows the kart I just finished.

Cool!

Did you program all the physics yourself?

Thanks. :) No, I'm using Newton Game Dynamics. Although, I think they prefer to just call it Newton Dynamics now, since a lot of people are using it for projects other than games these days.

Boxman, you got any pictures? I'll have to make 3d models of them, so a high detail image is preferred. :)

Btw, I got one of the karts done and made a better video with it.

Thanks man.

Sure you can. You know it makes you feel good. Not being funny or silly or anything... totally serious. Sometimes it takes a bit to get your balance again, but it's worth it.  ;)

I'll see if I have any drawing saved on this computer. Otherwise I'll draw a new one over the weekend :)

Cool. I'm looking forward to it man. :) I think I'll use Angelo's crab character from wetspot too... hopefully he wont mind. I have no idea how to get in touch with him. It's not like I'm selling the game or something anyway. lol

I want to put a demo up, but I have a few more things to add back into the engine and a bit more testing to do first. The good news is that I've tested on 4 computers, other than my dev box and have found nothing wrong so far. :)

Sorry for being a slowpoke. I will bring you a picture on the character (Sophy, my favorite character from my the tales of game) as soon as I can localize where I have put my pen for my tablet O_o.

Thanks man. :D I'ts still chugging along. It's taking a long time to do the track models, but I don't want some half-baked crap like my last attempt at a kart game.

Here's a new video that shows the driving AI in action. They'll be much smarter than they were in my previous attempts.  :D

Here's a demo with source included, if anyone is interested. Pay no mind to how sloppy this is... Parts of this are going into a game engine I'm working on, but no all of it. Anyway, have fun with this and please let me know if you get any crashes or graphical anomalies.  :D

Is this using GPU? I have Radeon R9 280, but this feels choopy for some reason.
