great work, especially for 72 hours

the controls seemed a little strange. I was expecting up and down to control acceleration and left and right just to steer, but these controls worked just fine

*thumbsup*

just one problem, it crashes after I complete the first course

 Mb, i thought wasn't out yet. It's out. Wonderful game I've played. It's kinda difficult to drive, but great gfx though.

thanks everyone for all the comments.  I've been getting alot of feedback and decided to update the game just a tad.

planned revisions...

Quote
SOUND:

fix motor sound problem:
-start off with higher pitch motor sound at 22000
-fix sound to co-ordinate with the speed of the craft, and not the buttons being pressed down
-loop low-rumble at all times (idle motor sound)?
-add more music (only if new graphic sets are created)


CODING:

fix all bugs:
-user lib not found
-crashes after lvl 1
-crashes after lose/win upon replaying
-not loading at all
 -splash screen with different video mode options 400,300 or 800,600
-fix screen fade maybe

things to add:
-add options button in menu:
 -alpha/beta controls
 -video mode
-(using the esc key)pause menu including:
 -resume game
 -end race
 -restart race
 -exit to menu
-level selection screen
 -select level using unlockables method
 -add a practice level with no racers and no laps
-shadow under cars using alpha transparency
-car selection screen


GRAPHICS:

things to fix:
-tile errors and lvl flaws
-car variences
-3..2..1...go needs re-working
-1st, 2nd, etc could be CG

things to add:
-more vegitation
-more graphic sets? (requiring more artists?)
-pause menu graphics
-mini iso tiles for lvl selection screen
-car selection screen gfx

beta controls will be the standard pressing left rotates the car to the left and forward is the gas.  that seems to be the number 1 gripe; the controls.

I use Nvidia 7800GTX.

Is possible the news ati fails? i think the peopla have said : Work or not work the game and the graphic card use to get the problem, if is the ati/nvidia, drivers, configuration.....

I think put a previous menu to chosse a resolution is good idea.

This was really cool. The controls... They take alot of practice. Maybe you could make an "Options" where you can change the controls.
And character/hoovercraft selection would be cool.
Nice graphics too.
