Tommi Maekinen Drag Racing Challenge ~

Post your Construct-made creations!

Post » Sun Feb 21, 2010 7:41 pm

Relatively well-known WRC legend Tommi Mkinen has challenged you to a drag race! And you must accept! I mean - look at that guy, can't say no to those dreamy eyes!



Tommi Maekinen Drag Racing Challenge is a game about racing fast cars and managing your speed and engine temperature in addition to NOT hitting anything on the way to the finish line. Sure, mowing down those rabbits is tempting but that may cost you the sweet, sweet victory. And Tommi will nag about it for the rest of your life. Because that's the kinda guy he is.





Gameplay is simple, the only thing you need is arrow keys and occasionally the enter key. Even the menus are fully keyboard-controllable so you can finally sell that useless mouse on eBay! I have no idea how taxing the game is on older systems, but figure that anything built after 1993 should run it just fine.

Oh, and the game features 100% authentic voiceovers by Tommi Mkinen himself. Yeah.

Both of these file sharing sites kind of suck, so If anyone knows a better, relatively simple upload site please let me know! You will be rewarded (no actual reward)!

(Also can someone point me to a tutorial on how to get soundfiles actually embedded in the .exe? Because I've seen it done and this 'separate folder for sounds' -stuff is a bit cumbersome.)

Anyway, enjoy the game! :D

Go to Project tab and add the sounds to the Files folder - they will be stored inside your project just like the graphics. Then use Play Resource.

There are also Music and Sounds folders there, but those apparently don't work yet.

This game is hilarious. All the fancy menus and voice intros and everything... and the actual race lasts about two seconds and then quits :P. It's funny how you move so incredibly fast but your opponent drives at about 5mph :). I actually had to try to let the other guy win... and I failed at losing the first time I did :lol:

Awesome work.

You don't even have to worry about your engines exploding, just hold onto the up button and you win.

Wonderful, thank you so much! Somehow I never noticed the files folder before, but now everything works perfectly! :lol:

So here's a new less-hassle-needed-version, also includes a bugfix or two. If you couldn't get sounds working previously, try dis:
