Top of the morning to you all!
I really want to make a racing game. Yet it isn't too fun if the screen doesn't scroll circular. Maybe that doesn't make sense. What I mean is that the screen should always be parallel with the vehicle's direction. Is this impossible? If not, how would you do this? Any extensions that could do this for TGF2?

Another question that I'll throw in:
Is there a way to make a .1 sec sound clip of a vehicle's rev change pitch? (creating an increasing rev sound such as when you accelerate)

Thanks in advance,
Chris

Oh scratch the extension part. I just found out (I'm a noob to the sequels) that TGF2 does not support public extensions.

Please do not bump topics, people generally don't appreciate it.

Your question doesn't really make sense, you need to elaborate... maybe provide a couple of screenshots showing what you mean?

He wants his screen to rotate to stay parallel with his vehicle. As far as I know, it's not possible.

if you want to increase the pitch of a sound, you need to increase the frequency of the sample (or decrease it to lower the pitch)

the only way i can think of doing this in TGF2 is to create different samples using a sound editor, and altering the frequency.

I checked, MMF2 has a "set sample frequency" option. I quickly tried it out and half of the time the sound I played didnt change. TGF2 probably has the option too.

Edit: I tried again. Seems fine. Probably didnt do it right the first time or someting.

Also, if you want to create that kind of camera movement, you have to rotate the background, and not the car.

you'd also have to rotate the AI racers and the like too, though with the CT movement, you could probably whip something up with that.

I guess if you made the entire track a giant active object you could rotate it. I don't want to think how slow it would get though.

but keeping the ai cars in the right place and direction would be tricky.

Try using the viewport (don't think it'll work) or the perspective object (I haven't tried). If it's not with extensions, you're screwed pretty much.

As far as I know, the viewport just does zooming. It does it quite well.

This is the closest effect you'll get.
Youll need to rotate EVERY object on the screen.



You can expand it to have active object's form a matrix on the screen, which would be tiled according to your racetrack. Then, you'd be rotating the matrix itself, while keeping the tiles loading from the same input. Basically you're just converting the 2d cartesian racetrack into polar coordinates and adjusting Theta.

Its much more complicated then a simple 2d track, and even when you've done it, it's not neccessarily a better effect. For example, EV nova has it as an option, but many people simply choose not to use it, since it complicates the screen.
