2 weeks ago I started working on a racing game for Atari computers. So far I was able to finish road algorithm, add some elements of the background, and create a simple 3d engine for perspective. I hope to finish this game by the end of May.
The main idea was to create racing game but not the casual way with display list, but instead to create 3d algorithm for the road, so I could add also elements of background.
If you are not familiar with the traditional way of drawing road it all depends on scrolling each and every line of the road, which makes it very hard to add some other elements of the background, because each and every line has different offset.
So far the game runs in 1 and 1/3 of the frame (with music) so I still have 2/3 of the frame for additional objects. PAL version will run in 25 fps whereas NTSC version will run in 20 FPS.
