You can you begin by a top game... Could we have an idea of that will be your next project if you have already an idea of it ?

I'd like to see if I can code a 3D triangle-based rendering engine (think Virtua Racing: no texturing, no lighting, palettized), and if so, how many triangles per frame I can get. Plan B would be a Mode-7 rendering engine (rotation + perspective of a texture, like the original F-Zero or Mario Kart). Depending on what I manage to do, I'll think of something fun to play.

But I change my mind every week :-)

The game is really amazing have you any idea to make it better again ?  I think its will be the game of the week. Gaphics are great, sounds are great, i think the gameplay could be a little adjusted and objects i little more diversified to make it more fun and to have a gameplay at the same level than the technical realisation. Thanks a new time for this game.

I didn't plan to work on it again, I've already switched to another project (or rather a project of project, assessing if I can do what I have in mind... Not looking good actually :-D).

A few gameplay ideas have come to my mind lately, so this could be a motivation to at least try them. And I may add a few more graphical assets for diversity. I can only devote a few hours a week for development, so this may take a couple of weeks.

Done ! I've tweaked the gameplay a little (for the better I believe), there is much less flickering, and I've added a few sprites.

And my code is uglier than ever!

No problem. It's already a top game. Technically, i think its fine. Yes, as you seen, i just think that the gameplay can be a few better and as atm its the only game of this sort, i hope its will be at the top. If it should take some weeks, it's will take some weeks. The impotant is to have the better game we can have at the end  ;)

Great. I will test it tonight

I've removed 1.1, it was broken. One of my last minute changes broke something and I didn't notice it, I'll have to investigate.

OK, if you look in code to remove bug, it's can only be better. So it's near to be a good news. I had loaded it but i'll wait version 1.2 to test then.

This version seems to work.

This is weird, I've had 2 crashes with the 1.1 binary I had installed on my SD card, but no problem while launching from the Arduino IDE. So I haved rebuilt it, re-tested. This one works and I've named it 1.2 to avoid confusions.

Damn, it crashes again. Always after I upload it :-)

Not have had time tu upload it. Good luck for the bug fight

I have found a way to reproduce the crash systematically, the bug is fixed! Yay!

I just tried 1.3, awesome full-res game! Nice job on the road rendering too, the bends look just right.

Alban

Thanks a lot! I tried to work in units that made sense in a physical manner, because I hate the effect when the road seems to move faster than the bends as if on a conveyor belt, or when the road just seems to spring back in place after a curve or a hill.

The downside is that I couldn't find a way to make the motion as dramatic as in, say, OutRun for instance (which has the "conveyor belt" effect)
