Pseudo 3D Racing Engine for Dreamcast

Postby ac3t1ne on Sun Aug 24, 2014 12:29 pm

Quick test port of my pseudo 3D racing engine (derived from the popular javascript one from codeincomplete) using my 2D graphics wrapper for Kallistios 2.0.

Proof of concept at the moment (just showing off 60 fps with a lot of calculations going into each frame!)

The code is a mess at the moment as I had to dig through it to find the bit that the Dreamcast was choking on!

Would love to flesh this out into a game one day :mrgreen:

Really cool man, that's radder than rad racer ;)! If you don't mind me asking how do you pull off that sort of Pseudo 3D effect I've always wondered how they did it with Rad Racer but I've never looked into doing anything Pseudo 3D-ish?

Hey thanks dude! :worship:

I wonder if I could get a demo together in the next month or 2, raise $30k and quit my job to work on this for a year...

Now that would be chasing the dream!
