Hood Frontend

Unread post by Kiwi » Fri Sep 11, 2020 11:18 am

In the last week I worked on the very first fully functional custom frontend for Re-Volt, using all the possibilities RVGL introduced for frontend customation in the last years. Navigate the main menu through the iconic Toys in the Hood starting area, in the modern version I initially made for the use in my track "School's Out!".

Major features of the Hood Frontend:

:re-volt: Stock-like design pared with modern graphics (shadows, lot of details,...)
:re-volt: Completly functional (Name wheel, car preview, trophy ceremony,...)
:re-volt: New frontend music track
:re-volt: You can choose between a PC- and a DC- box layout

Autumn-, winter-, and spring-editions of the frontend will come later. :)

I made a short video, where you can see the frontend in action:


And here are some comparison shots, where you can see the differences between the Default and the Hood frontend.

If you told me this was the frontend for some cancelled expansion pack or sequal I would've believed you, this looks amazing!! Sweet work Kiwi!

This thing is awesome! I like how it has a taken-apart RC car.

Can you also post a short description how to install this and how to revert changes if necessary?

Cool stuff! 👍

It's easy to install: just put it in your RVGL folder, as you do with normal tracks. And if you've put it in properly, you'll have a new menu in Options. You'll need to click "Select Frontend" - And from that menu, you can easily revert it, too. :)
