Thread: Funky cars

  1. #1

    Funky cars

    Hi! I've decided to make a demo for my work in progress game.
    It is a car game that uses ODE as physics engine and SDL and Opengl as graphic libraries.

    This is just a demo where i've been playing adding stuff in it, It doesn't have a track to run on, but has some other things to play with, including a big swirl to climb
    (and you can change the car skin )

    I've included 4 executable: 2 linux (kylix and fpc) and 2 windows (delphi and fpc) so you can see differences

    The executables are compressed with UPX to save space. It was quite impressive: the delphi version is now 50k The fpc-linux version passed from 400+ to 170 k

    I've used almost all open source programs to do this (mainly fpc, gimp, blender) and it was developed mostly on Debian linux.

    I'll probably release the source code (if i don't find someone to sell it ) so if any of you want to help
    Also, if you can draw good 3d stuff, you're welcome

    You can download it here:

    Wow, I guess ou are pretty out of date indeed. www.delphigamer.com of course(You do know that we are merging DGDev and DelphiGamer, right?) The new site is almost ready soon.

    It has been more active then it's been in years. And a ton of news on everything Games, Development and Pascal have and will continue to be posted.

    Hey MSX.

    The demo looks great. I found one little problem though. The tab key to flip the car didn't work. I haven't had a chance to see if it works on my other PC yet.

    If your looking for some help with it, I would definately be interested. You can emaiL me at brockl@gmail.com.

    Ciao

    It's definetly a cool project.

    Tested only on Windows.

    I did find one bug in the fpc version (may exist in the Delphi version as well). I raced against the cubes and then the game suddenly crashed. No error or anything. So far I've not been able to re-create it.

    The car seems to get stuck to the ground when I use the 'road'.

    Why is the fpc version a console application?

    Anyway looking great so far, can't wait for the full game to be finished.

    Indeed a cool project! It ran perfectly without any bugs.
    Well, except for the one balog wrote, about the car that could not be flipped but that was only when the car wasn't on the (tiled) floor.

    Hope you will continue with this demo, because it has a lot of potential.
