Re: GJ's and I Spy's Workshop

When I first saw the Rooftops 1 preview picture, I already knew that this guys are knowing what they do. And this tracks confirmed this once more. For me, The Fairground tracks are the most impressive pair of tracks since the original Re-Volt tracks were released in 1999. In short: The tracks combin...

Thank you. Yes, I also plan to release winter- and a spring editions of the Hood Frontend. Winter around November, December 2020, and spring maybe in March, April 2021. There will be snow in the winter edition for sure, and it's snowing. You can expect a snowman as well. For the spring version I am ...

https://i.imgur.com/PcRfpjM.jpg I've released an Autumn Edition of the Hood Frontend! The main area and all the camera zooms are exactly the same as in the summer version of the frontend. The differences are the following: :re-volt: Changed colors of trees, bushes and grass. :re-volt: Added shaking...

This was never meant as a project with a plan, but yeah...I made Dr. Grudge and Rotor back then as well. I was not satisfied with the result, so I didn't posted them.

Suggestions regarding Frontend customisations

While working on the Hood Frontend , I found some limitations regarding the customisation possibilities RVGL is offering. It would be cool if some of them could be addressed in one of the next RVGL updates. 1) Make it possible, to define the car drop position at the car selection At the moment, the ...

Re: Controllers for Re-Volt

When I rejoined the community in 2017 I used my Microsoft XBox One Controller for playing Re-Volt, and it works really good. ht...

Re: OBTAIN for Levels

This all sounds very good. I like the fact, that OBTAIN 2 can be used for an unlock when beating the custom tracks challenge time. Also the possibility, to set a different OBTAIN for one of the stock tracks is very useful for Total Conversions. :eyes: Regarding backward-compatibility for tracks whic...

This sounds like a good plan, Huki. I think it's OK for custom tracks, when the R/M/RM will be unlocked together with the main track. Looking forward for an implementation in one of the next RVGL releases. :eyes: I missed the Obtain 2 method, cause it's also missing at the Re-Volt Wiki entry . I was...

I've decide to write a small Launcher for MARVLE. At the moment you can only activate the DEV mode through it, but other than that it will manage some other stuff, which I need for the Total Conversion later. Also some starting parameters will be set automatically. Guess this is the most handy way f...

Re: Custom starting position in time trials

I really like the idea, but I think it should be integrated in the existing levels .inf -file, for example by naming it TTPOS . Other settings like this was added before during development of RVGL ( ENDPOS, CHALLENGE, DIFFICULTY ,...) , and if everyone have the same .inf -file, it cause no CHT tag. ...

just curious, how would a marble from this, play out in normal re-volt? It would work, but it would be also pretty slow. Slower than a Rookie car.

About the artstyle: I think what you showed in the video looks pretty good, but I hope not the entire game will be so dreary (and probably the first level should be more joyous too :P). The art-style you can see at the moment will not be the only one. Each set of levels will have a slightly differe...

Re: Object Throwers

It means you can select the sound but not the range and other parameters, which will be zero. So the sound will loop continuously and be audible everywhere (an ambient sound).

Re: Satellite images experiment

This is really impressive. I‘m glad you put more effort into this track than you have planned in the beginning. I think this track show perfectly what is possible if you don‘t think too narrow minded and experiment with the possibilities RVGL gives you. Great job as always, Jan.
