Open Tricks - why do they call it showboating if I'm in a go-kart?

OpenTricks is an extensible addon for introducing tricking mechanics into SRB2Kart.


During the start of each race, you will be presented a chance to select your trick style for the course. Press BRAKE (or your configured button) while rising in the air to begin a trick. When your cursor passes over the sweet-spot, release the button to perform a trick. Succeed and you can attempt more tricks until you land.

Is there a way to remove the meter mechanic from new engines (trick styles) we implement? We could add any past tricks we want if we can do that.


Meterless Open Tricks Style:
local function NothingThinker(player)
  player.OpenTricks.meter.timer = -1 -- any number outside of the normal range will do.
  player.OpenTricks.meter.sweetspot = FRACUNIT -- ditto.

OPENTRICKS_ADD("nothing", "wow!", "K_TRNULL", "K_TRNULL", false, nil, NothingThinker, nil, nil)

This is ugly and weird, though.

I will add a more organic means of blocking tricks to my to-do list.

This is a really neat addon- I like the options and flexibility it gives to customizing your trick style that best suits the current track or your preferred playstyle.

Dropdash doesn't really play all that nicely with certain jumps and wind rides, I've realized.

  • Added otrx_x and otrx_y as means to control the gameplay UI. Non-zero values will override the logic that Open Tricks uses to determine the x/y position.
  • Added the Item key to the list of inputs that lock your selection when held. In effect, you can't change your trick selection while holding Brake, Drift, or Item.
  • Fixed multiple issues related to creating a list of non-banned styles.
  • Rewrote the code for displaying multiple trick icons.
