Re: eyefinity/surround support

OK sorry, I'm necroing this thread to update on the current version, since sometime around the introduction of 21:9 resolutions this work around hasn't worked. If I want to play in fullscreen I HAVE to use one of the resolutions hard coded into the game (again restricting resolutions rather then pro...

Re: [LISTED] Boost Start

He speaks the truth, it's not a massive kick but if you hit your accelerator the second countdown reaches 0 then you do get a burst of initial acceleration.

- I meant to mention that before but... gears on a jet powered car? What for? Theory crafting here: These cars don't have flaps to divert air to change direction, and if you put a jet engine on the back of a car then all the thrust is going out the back pushing it forward which will make it very ha...

Re: Achievements [DISCUSSION]

Comments about the dev achievements are fair, they are just ones I've seen before that are fun. I have no real issue with challenging issues but from a game design point of view they should not be the majority of them, just a handful, in other words the majority of them should be achievable from an ...

Re: Achievements [DISCUSSION]

I must say I'm personally not a fan of any achievement that is basically grind to achieve. Give me stuff like: Dead Eye - Shoot down an Assassin missile down with a Scorpion missile. Death from Above - Hit someone with a rail-gun while airborne Efficiency - Hit 3 cars with a single rail-gun shot Sha...

Doom single player campaign > then any competitive multi-player shooter. But then I'm pre-disposition to not like the combination of the words, competitive, multi-player, and shooter :P

Re: Anti-cheat

10% better acceleration isn't enough to compensate for someone with better skill, blatant cheaters are by fair the most annoying and are the ones that will be complained about the most and the loudest, they are also the easiest to detect. Just because smaller cheaters wouldn't trigger this kind of c...

Re: Anti-cheat

Well you wouldn't instantly ban / kick for going beyond what the normal limits are, but for consistently or repeatedly doing it. For example work out what the fastest cars max speed under boost, in a straight line, and if a player is doing that for like 5-10 seconds straight then something is up, sa...

Re: Anti-cheat

The main thing to worry about when implementing cheat protection is to try and have the server sanity check values coming in, IE a car shouldn't be able to accelerate from 0 to 700kps in a second, and check the cars not going faster then a sane max speed. That sort of thing.

Re: Lets talk about the Leader Missile

If we want to missile to do anything but magically turn around at the exact same pivot point and not lose any speed (ala rollcage), then this will not be easy to code. :p You could always just cheat and have the missile fire in reverse to start with, pop it out the front of the car, give it a quick...

Re: A different take on the leader missile.

Just a point of fact, the leader missile in both 1 and 2 was easily avoidable by a well timed swerve as, in both cases, the missile aims for the face not the back. Shooting it out the sky was also an easy way to get rid of it. The problem with having the same system in this game is the change of han...

Re: Time Trial Starts With pickups

Your hot lap will still be your second lap or beyond, because if you want a fast time 9 times out of ten you'll pass the start finish lines at 600kph or higher. So even with boosts at the start your first lap will still be slower, because even with double boosts it still takes a few second to get up...

Thanks :D You are right that 43-44 is definitely possible, but your going to need a really good run and a fair bit of luck to pull it off.

Re: [LAP TIMES] Who is the fastest ? - UPDATED 1.0.9

I think I got something around 48sec during testing not sure though. You can go a lot faster if you time your boosts so you can pick up 2 on the jump before the tunnel and if you don't flop around inside. But hey you should do Industrial, try to grind that 43-44 sec lap that I cant be assed to do x...

I made a proper video this time, the first 12:00 is me running a time trial on industrial, the last part of the video is me talking about the current state of the current version and my view.

Re: I do not enjoy anymore (evolved to discussion with codemonkey about physics details)

With UE4, PhysX is always run on the CPU regardless of what the control panel says. It's worth noting the physics is run in parallel to the main game tick, and takes up much less time than that tick, so it's not a performance issue. Fair enough, but that's a little silly of UE4, what's the point of...

Re: [LAP TIMES] Who is the fastest ? - UPDATED 1.0.9

Yeah once you get down to shaving 100th of a second off it's not as fun, but pushing yourself to get that one flawless lap I do enjoy ^_^ Because yeah, multiplayer will be epic, so long as the speeds involved don't cause them a massive headache with the net code.
