The Racing World demo has been released!

Postby MatAllum » Fri Feb 25, 2005 12:19 pm

Yep. I've also got a temporary download page set up for you so you won't have to get a "forbidden" error.

The Racing World demo

It's a "slalom" (a term meaning "zig-zag") track through a high-detail highway. Sorry, there's no traffic. Try to reach the end by hitting all the checkpoints.

Keep in mind that, although some of you may not like this kind of track, this game will have many more types of races. And for some of you, there'll be cops, too.

Also, please don't comment on having no engine sound. That is still to come.

What do you think?

Hi There

Tried the demo but didnt get very far due to the demo containing a virus. You really should be a bit more careful.

Scans clean with Norton Anti Virus 2005, latest definitions.

The car only seems to steer when you're accelerating though, is that right?

@Virus :
I've scanned with Antivir PE, definitions from yesterday, and it showed no problems. Maybe it's just false alarm.

@Game :
You still have a long way to go I guess. The car doesn't steer when you don't accelerate, and at "higher" speeds it feels like you're driving on ice. And it also seems to not matter in what order you drive the points, the still get counted. But besides that this could become some funny game, especially if you implement multiplayer where the players compete against each other.

no virus detection here either. the game played fine. although as mentioned above it seems very "early". nice start though.. the graphics were nice (on the car).

keep working on it!!

Thank you for your comments!

Yes, I admit that the car does not steer while you are not accelerating. That will BE FIXED in the next release, because I will have RPM, engine sound, and gliding to a stop. Also cruise control.

To Spooky:

Please believe me, though, I would not put a virus in anything I make. Perhaps there is something a little "off" in your virus program and it is detecting a virus from some other file. Or perhaps some other file infected this one shortly after you downloaded it.
