Hi Savvy,

I like the idea of a key to drift but I'm a noob here!

I'm having a reoccurring problem with other things, to change into 'drift mode' I'm setting on key down - set drift to 50. trouble is that sets it to always drift after that. It's also the same when you go onto the grass, it sets the car into a slower speed and will continue that way.

Do you (or anyone reading!) to do something like 'while key is down - change speed to xx' or 'while over object - change speed too xx' then revert when not over the object.

? :)

and actually the same goes for the zoom, I can set it to zoom but no gently zoom out afterwards.qster2012-03-11 15:28:19

Im builden a Example for u.
It already has full drift and race switching.

A: U can make drift donuts with it, when keeping the pedal to the medal and handbraking
B: The same is for drifting through corners like in Fast & Furious tokyo drift.
C: U can do handbrake slides by only using hand brake.
D: U can race truly fast with it when not touching the handbrake because steering is then automaticly reverted to race mode with less steering speed.
E: When normal in race mode braking the car just slows down.

I'l now work on the zoom part.

I'l upload it in about 2 hours.
Then u can (study it) and build it yourself.
Or simply copy and paste the controls to your own capx and tweek it there Savvy0012012-03-11 17:24:33

If u have downloaded the latest beta release and u have exported the project to check it on a server, and now it does not work.
Then it is good to know its a beta release bug.

Solution:
Save your game as "project"
Then open the folder on your drive.
Then download Notepad ++
Then open the "your game name".capx
Then search for the line (<saved-with-version>8100</saved-with-version>)in the top of the file.
And change the number 8100 to 8002

Then save the file.
Go to Scirra release
Then download release r80.2
Install it

Then open the "your game name".capx u have just altered.

Then save it again as a single file to your drive.
Back it up!
Now u can export your games again and play them on your server.
Keep this in mind for the future beta releases.

And then just stay with the r80.2 release until this specific bug is fixed by the scirra team.Savvy0012012-03-11 18:46:55

Example demo

Here it is
The demo has a layout sise of 8000 x 8000
So all the speed settings are adjusted to that.
A smaller layout = faster, so the speed settings react different if u copy paste the events in game with a smaller layout.
In other words : It needs to be tweeked when u copy paste this to your event sheet.

Have fun and please let me know what u think.


@Kyatric (u can put this one in the how to page if u like.Savvy0012012-03-11 22:26:40

Errr... errrr! wow! :D

This is just awesome, thanks Savvy.

So now you realise I have to re-make everything so it's as high quality as your code right? gee thanks! ;)

Came up with a nice way for me to make 3D graphics, but it was at 3am so didn't get much done. I'll carry on for most of the day and update the game later tonight.

Thanks again!
