There's another logo. I can use this:

It's a sportswear company. Or I can change this to Fila:

The Slickster one is a mini-tribute, from me, to the greatest tr?ck maker ever to grace MTM2.com. He really did have a Passion for Excellence...

Sweet, thanks a lot guys. I can make those in higher resolution for you now. So we have:

Coca-Cale (obvious)
MTM (BMW)
Binedit (Suzuki)
Slickster (Bridgestone)

Should I use these to fill in the rest of the missing barriers in the stadium then? And has anyone got good, non-stock ambulance and fire truck models? :)

[edit] This is very helpful: What the Font. You put a picture of a font in and it works out which font it is.

Coca-Cale for example. I admit I had to play about with it to make the second C.

Hehe Phin, I kinda liked the MTMG Mental Morons too. [;)] Or maybe the MTMG Manic Mechanics one.

That's what we created them for, lol... it's your decision. Glad I could help. [;)]

That is awesome! 8) And thanks for the "What the Font?" link, I'll be using that!

NIR_Cr@$hC@rt, I have a suggestion for the actual track if I may? I found that it is very easy to miss checkpoints, so some kind of visual clue would help lots... a line scraped in the dirt, as wide as the checkpoint, would be perfect for this kind of track.

There will be checkpoint markers of some sort. I haven't found anything that looks convincing for a real race event, so that's why there are no markers in the current beta. :)

I think it's just about finished. I've reached the model limit trying to make it complex, interesting and realistic. You do get a big FPS drop in the stadium section, so a lot of models are set to Complex or Normal. I decided against obvious CP markers, but there are trees there. Any trees close the the track generally indicate a checkpoint, but keep to the dirt and you'll be fine. :D

Could you guys just run through this final beta so I can fix up any bugs and release it?

Sure thing, bud. Unfortunately I won't get to it for another 9 hours lol, but I'll be glad to check it out. :)

I ran it with all graphic options cranked up and saw no studder, at all.

I'd slope the bottom edge of this corner base. If you slide off you can't drive back up which could be faster than calling the heli.

There's a few minor texture seams you might want to patch up.

If you generate a custom track palette I think it'll much improve the dirts blotchiness.

A notch or two up on the Lightings shadow and darkness scale?

nice work :)

That's good, must be something on my end then. I did have 16 different windows open. [(-:]

OK, that's not hard to fix.

I'll do my best with those, they took up quite a bit of time early on, but I never got the joins quite right.

I did make a custom palette, but I think the other colours for sponsors and such left fewer colour spaces for the dirt.

Yeah, that's something I experimented with earlier, it would looks nice with strong shadows going down the hill. However, the dirt on the ground boxes wasn't affected, so it went from nice and dark to normal brightness, which didn't look all that good.

Thanks for the feedback Mal, and I'm looking forward to what Copey has to say. I remember a few years ago he managed to find the only floating tree on one track, which was way out on the back of the circuit. :D

It'd be nice to see this used for some top-quality racing, I'd like to know what the tourney racers make of the wide, fast track.

I don't recall what track that was on, but I must've been desperate to find something lolol. Don't get your hopes up too much, bud. It looked pretty darn good when I ran through it a few weeks ago, so odds are I won't find anything. But if desperation sets in again I might suggest something like . . . removing the Malibu and Cownap banners so you can make mine bigger lol. :)

It was the 3rd GP track I made, I forget the name. The one in the snow. It had a really fast series of corners with only trees near them, and just one was floating. :D

I'm not suggesting redoing a large section. What I do and have done many times when things don't quite line up is zero in on the exact two opposing mismatched tiles in traxx's texture box then copy paste them into psp and create a matching tile set from those two or however many it takes to cover up the track width, in your case it would be a matter of six?

I made 3 in Photoshop by skewing the originals to line up, and mirrored them for the other sides of the track. It all fits nicely now. :)

Sorry, have to bump this up again.

There is one thing this track is missing, in my opinion, and that is crowd noise. I have lots of WAV files of people cheering and airhorns and such, but I don't know how to get them to play in the game. Is there a way to make the sounds play when you go past spectators?
