Dear visitors and members, with the staff having moved on to other life interests and as a result of changes in people's internet usage habits, the CodeWalrus community have migrated almost entirely to Discord, IRC and WalrusIRC and is now essentially a place where to hang out, chat about gaming, programming, music, anime, and chill. As a result, even though the CW forums will remain open for posting, for faster TI, Casio or HP calculator help and news we recommend using the bilingual TI-Planet forums instead.

We encourage everyone to join our Discord server now.

You need to have 5 posts and not be part of restricted usergroups in order to use the WalrusIRC embedded shoutbox. However, you can also access our IRC channel called #CodeWalrus via EFnet.

Thanks! This is just a testmap and I dont plan on using any actual SNES maps etc - all maps need to be specifically made properly - but the tracks are just 2D tilemaps. I should also note that the engine is running at half-half resolution for the track ... which is why it can look lowish quality when up close, but it's for speed.

Minor update - I was tossing up between sprite scaling at runtime or pre-sized sprites. The old speed vs size ... I really didnt like the idea of KB's and KB's of sprite data but I was a bit skeptical of runtime scaling. The results thus far are promising for scaling as shown here:

At present I can have 8 of these 24x24 sprites on screen and still maintain 32fps. Of course there is no collision detection, HUD, AI or anything which would slow things down further. I only plan on having 4 player races for speed reasons.

I also added a scrolling background as well to make things look a little more like a proper racing game:
