XRacer version 0.96.0
A Development version of XRacer version 0.96.0 has been released today. XRacers is a cloned game of Psygnosis' WipeOut. Here's what the web page has to say about it: (Click above)
The track shape is described as a single mesh, and the import tools generate an efficient BSP which maps from the pilot's position to the correct point in that mesh. Tracks are no longer constructed from ``segments'' and are no longer limited in shape.
A track could now be an arbitrary shape: a wide open area or a track which divides into several alternative routes are both possibilities.
Here's the web page for the game http://xracer.annexia.org/.
You can download this beta version here.
