[SRB2 Riders] D00D Kart 64 - Mario Kart Level Pack!

So, I was reading the forums when I realized something: I have way too many topics for submissions! Seriously, I had tons of them! Too many, infact, for them to be split apart and such, so here's a level pack with all of my pre-released stuff! However, in addition to them all being in a pack, some courses received adjustments and will continue to be updated within this pack! ...Least, this is what I said when I first made it. But now it has grown into a HUGE pack with tons of courses! Ports, new courses, and courses made by other members! There's tons of track to tear up, so get on it!

LAST UPDATE: NOVEMBER 15TH 2011
CURRENT VERSION: 2.2.2

NOTE: Picture updating in process!

Spoiler: Lots of images and such!

What's that? STILL not enough Kart action? Well, those Riders and Sonic R stages were gathering dust, so I converted some of them to Karts mode! They can be found starting from "MAPRA".



Oh yes, quite a bit of Kart Kontent there.

OKAY ENOUGH TALK TIME FOR SOME ACTION

MIRRORS

NOTE: Both music wads are required, as the music is split among them. HOPEFULLY, this will mean I only need to update one or the other if I really need to. M1 is for the ports, and M2 is for custom maps.

If you're going from 2.1.1 to 2.2, be sure to grab Music WAD 2! Both text files were updated as well.

Also, if you have both music wads, but enter a server, the music wads wont load themselves in, but just type "loadup" in the console, and the game will do the rest!

Looks interesting. I'll download it.

Ghost Valley better have parts of the track fall off when you hit the walls.

Fawfulfan 07-03-2011 12:00 AM

Excellent...I'm glad to see them all bundled up, and I'm certainly eager to see the changes and additions.

By the way, Cloud Cradle K needs to go much more desperately than Monochrome Road. I died maybe 20 times on the first lap and ragequitted.

It can't, but I was thinking parts of the wall would fall down over time ala Grumble Volcano, in at least some way to compensate for not being able to do collapsible walls. I can't make it a destructible wall because the player would fly THROUGH the wall, making it pointless, not to mention incredibly laggy given I'd need hundreds of FOFs to make EVERY SINGLE BLOCK destructible.

All you need is love skill. I am definetly satisfied with how Cloud Cradle K turned out, and shall not be cutting it. I may make a tweak or two if anything at all, but for right now, I am satisfied with Cloud Cradle K completely.

Chaos Zero 64 07-03-2011 01:05 AM

For Ghost Valley, maybe add a thin sector around the walls that trigger the falling FOFs? I've never touched those Crumbling FOFs, so I don't know how they work.

Pyro Fox Boy 07-03-2011 01:36 AM

I feel like showing off, so I'm going to post videos of both Cloud Cradle K and Monochrome Road that I did a few days ago. Strangely enough, it's a lot easier for me to play these both stages using the mouse since my drifting skills aren't up to par with RedEchidna's drifting skills. It took several tries for Monochrome Road since Fraps slows the frame rate when running in OpenGL mode, but not as much in Software mode. As well as dodging those obstacles that were pretty distracting.

Other than that, I did play the ports of these tracks and I gotta say that you did a good job! It's about almost the same size and length as the real Mario Kart tracks. It's too bad that SRB2Riders has so many limits on track creation, but it's as good as it will ever get. Do you plan on porting the other tracks from the Mario Kart games?

JEV3 suggested this too, but the issue here is that a player can drive alongside the wall and lower ALL of the walls without even hitting them. I still have yet to make a decision.

ANYWAYS I GOT SOMETHING NEW TO SHOW YOU THAT'LL MOST LIKELY BE POINTLESS

Beta shots of the 3DS Battle map! CZ64 hasn't implemented battle mode yet, but when he does, this pack will be ready! The bottom screen is more or less done (the actual touch screen needs a custom texture, and I think I have an idea on what). As for the top screen, it won't be out like the DS stage in Mario Kart DS, but instead will stand up 90 degrees, with players being able to enter the top screen, which will have a room inside. Nothing much yet, but I'm sure it'll be an awesome map when Battle mode is made! (If it is!)

I ran into some bugs playing this. Let me list them.

*In Delfino Square, after players fall off the course and respawn, I get sigsegv'd.
*After I finished lap 1 on Monochrome Road, I got sigsev'd again because there was an area with flamethrowers burning at once.

My suggestion: Test your levels before submitting them.

This is all you, since not only did I test them, THEY tested them (other players AND mods that NEED to test them to accept them, thus you're implying that mods/judges arn't doing their job either) and got it running fine, with neither of these bugs happening. I run through these courses several times each, even running through them for the sake of time trial, and it never happens. This is something on your end, not mine. Either that, or you're holding an item out behind you as you die, which instantly crashes, and you're misinterpreting this as a sigsegv. This happens on EVERY Mario Kart course in SRB2 Riders, so this is not my doing.

More background on Ghost Valley and I will be happy. :3

I feel terrible making an essentially contentless post, so I guess I'll give this one a reason to exist by... saying I'll download it? That should work, right?

Also, it's probably because I never played SMK, but I don't see the point on dropping the rails in Ghost Valley. Might be different after I play it, though, so I dunno.

If you ran into the blocks in the Ghost levels in Super Mario Kart and Mario Kart Super circuit, they'd fall off. Now, due to the way I set the course up, not only would I have to redraw every single wall into a billion pieces, but each one would need its own tag to be destroyed. Amongst other issues.

ANYWAYS...

Spoiler: This is only one image, but I can't stand it when people quote a full post, pic and all, to talk about one thing in it, so...

I gotta stop working on so many things at once.

Yeah, I'm guilty for using the mouse. =P Just gotten used to using it after a short while... But, I do miss the mini-boost since using the mouse sacrifices drifting. >.< Still, your first lap of Cloud Cradle K was awesome.

And the 3DS battle stage looks interesting... Perhaps you could probably use the SRB2Riders logo as a custom texture since this is SRB2Riders. Or use a screen shot of the home screen for both screens to make it look like we are battling on a real 3DS.

Ah, while this is still fresh on the mind: Ghost Valley 2 doesn't show up in the level selection screen. So, I have to put in the map number in order to access it.

Oh, whoops, forgot to mark it as hidden = 0. Fixed for the next version.

I'd say Cloud Cradle K is the best level in the pack. Why do people complain so much about it? Just learn to goddamn drift better! I find it very fun, compact, visually pleasing (scenery wise), original, and like the fact that it has the least render errors. It's pretty easy to beat it without dying no less than 3 times, and that's just because the luck jump at the start.

BotanicJet989 07-04-2011 01:50 PM

Awesome pack! But the Luigi level has puddles to make the drivers slip if driven over.

Again, this is undoable because spinouts are hardcoded. Sectors are in place for them, but they do nothing and don't appear any different.

Bbop800 07-04-2011 01:54 PM

Maybe the puddles could just behave like ice floors? Just an idea I thought of.

I tried this idea before, but it didn't work out. It doesn't work because the puddles are far too small to make much of an impact at all, and drifting nullifies anything they try to do. CZ64 will fix the latter eventually, but I can't do much about the former without changing things too much. I suppose I can put it back in for now though. At least it's SOMETHING.

EDIT: Never mind, it does almost literally nothing. The lowered friction doesn't make steering any harder, AND I've seen it make even WORSE graphical glitches than the course already has. No go.

EDIT2: No, it's even WORSE. turns out I forgot to give it the proper tag, but when I did, the puddles not only didn't make sterring much harder, IT SPED UP ALL CHARACTERS TO THE MAXIMUM SPEED OF SPEED TYPES ALMOST INSTANTANIOUSLY.

FUCK.
THAT.

...However, I managed to cut the visual bugs a bit, so the puddles will still appear. They'll just be non-functional unless CZ64 makes a spinout sector effect, which I doubt.
