Sprint Tracks
There is now support for point-to-point tracks or NFS-style sprint tracks. These tracks have the lap count automatically set to 1 and display the progress percent in place of the lap count. To convert your track into a sprint track, set 'GAMETYPE 4' in the level .inf file and define the end position with ENDPOS. This works just like STARTPOS and can be obtained using Right Shift + F9.

Code: Select all

GAMETYPE    4  ; Track type (0:default, 1:battle, 2:stunt, 3:frontend, 4:sprint)
ENDPOS      -17784 -8846 -90895  ; End position coordinates
You then need to re-save the AI and Pos Nodes. These files need to be re-saved whenever the STARTPOS or ENDPOS has changed. The nodes need not form a loop, although it is recommended to lay out a couple of additional nodes before and after the start and end nodes.

Sprint tracks are also playable in Time Trial mode. The car is automatically repositioned to the start position upon completing the lap.

Modern Editor Workflow
We have a new developer on the team - say hello to Frankie - and together we're modernizing the in-game editor! The camera controls have also received an overhaul. These features are enabled through a new [Editor] section in rvgl.ini, containing two new options:
  • LegacyCameraControls: Set this to 0 to use modified camera navigation controls. The changes include a more "standard" WSAD set (where W = forward, S = back, Q = up, E = down), and Y-axis movement that follows the mouse motion instead of being inverted.
  • LegacyEditorControls: Set this to 0 to switch to the modern editor workflow. This is currently implemented for AI Nodes and Pos Nodes edit modes.

The editor has also received a couple of other usability improvements:
  • Better support for shader mode. (#944)
  • Better support for high frame rates. (#480)
  • Better mouse cursor and zoom behavior.
  • Better mirrored mode support.

Other Fixes:
  • Online: Fixed bugs related to CPU cars (eg, bomb transfer).
  • Online: Fixed wrong cheating flags saved to the CSV.
  • Online: Fixed key cars not moving in Frontend.
  • The camera collision behavior is restored. (#1091)
  • Level *.inf parsing is more stable.

Sprint races, yeah! Now someone can make a proper top-speed test track or acceleration test track or a dragstrip track for car comparisons (right now there is only ZR's Dragstrip ZR, required manual 1-lap setting)

Hi Frankie!

Amazing update. It‘s very nice to see features like point to point tracks and big improvements to the makeitgood editor, without touching the core of Re-Volt. Can’t wait to try this out for my upcoming track, called „School’s Out!“. You all doing such a good job, and you do everything so Re-Volt will be alive also for the next 20 years. ;)

Ah yes, and Hi, Frankie!

I finally exist on forums!

I'm Here!
Hello everyone! I'm glad to have joined the team. In addition to improving the editor, I'm here to learn C++ in general as I always thought it was a scary language, but I am forcing myself to learn through this project.
