Death rally editor v 0.3.1 released!

Hello everyone,

Today, as has been the custom lately, we have good news for all the fans of the Death Rally game.

Simo has updated its editor again, this time to version 0.3.1, which is much more refined and is much easier to use. Now we can not say that we can not change textures in this game.

I leave the download link:

Phase 3 Sentinel Reached!

Today we have good news, The development phase has evolved to phase 3 (sentinel)! .

From this point we can say that we leave behind phase two of the development that has taken a long time, but that involves knowing the configuration files, savegames, track records, hall of fame and above all, knowing how the circuits work and are defined (Many files are involved).

I put a couple of videos for you to see the progress in development. It should be noted that there are many bugs to be corrected, but I am happy that all the menus are playable and only need a few small adjustments.

In the following weeks I will explain each type of file that make up the circuits (inf, bpk, vai, lr1 …).

But now let’s focus on phase 3 (luckily the other phase is past). This phase has as main objective to get a full playable version !. It mainly remains to know the format of the videos, sounds and sound effects. But probably the most complicated task will be the reimplementation of the graphic engine for the races to be able to implement the logic of the races.

As always I invite you to follow the blog to see the news in the development and the format of the files and I also encourage you to leave your comments, improvements … which are appreciated 🙂

Fight against Adversary at Rock Zone in one lap

Hi,

Today, I show to you another video of my improvements, with my

 

Destruction Derby race in Death Rally

Hi,

As my investigations continue, i’m testing things that I want to incorporate to the future Death Rally launcher. In this case this post it’s about a race I called “Destruction Derby Race!”, in honor of the classic game probably most of us played, Destruction Derby.

The main idea is to play a race with a lot of laps, in this case the race laps are 255, so, the race is too long to finish it normally and the best way to end this race is destroying all rivals!.

Here is a sample video of this kind of race:

Game launcher
