Stunt Marble Racers 2

Postby Brainsaw » Sun Mar 05, 2017 4:32 pm

Hello community,

after two years with neither the motivation not the time to code something interesting I got appetite to create something a few months ago. After some long evenings and a lot of free time spent (OK, it was winter time - better than watching TV ;) ) I now have a first alpha version of my latest marble racing game for you to test:

http://dustbin-online.de/dowload/marbles3.zip

It is a simple racing game where up to 4 marbles race against each other. At the moment you can do a time trial against the clock and a ghost (previously played laps) and the up to 4 player network mode is (more or less) ready.

What I still want to add is the possibility to share ghost files over the internet and to download new ghosts to the client, but I haven't even started that part. I also want to create a standalone server.

The tracks in the package are most certainly not the final tracks although some of them will make it into the final version I guess.

I also have a video online although it's an old version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7s3OUbXc5Ec

Finally here are some screenshots:

I hope you have fun with the early version and can provide some feedback.

And I think I will most probably provide you with some new code snippets, but at the moment the whole source code lacks documentation and I'll also have to make nice packages before I publish those snippets.

Damn .. I deleted the images yesterday in a homepage update - I'll re-add them tonight, here in the office I don't have access to my homepage ;)

Bravo!
Reminds me of a few tilt-n-roll games I've played on tablets (very annoying) and the PC game AtmoSphere from Digipen (really fun): http://games.digipen.edu/downloads/Atmo ... 0&proj=487

Congratz. Some minor problems:
- Can crash when changing shadow settings a few times.
- Texture-filter settings seem to be rather low (should enable triliniear + anisotropic)
- My computer to weak for best shadows :-(
- Needs music soundtrack!

Impressed with moving platforms (alwas tricky to get right with physics ^_^)

Cool! I like the multi-sampled approach to the shadowing..
