Well, time for another review. Don't expect a world of a difference yet, since the devs have been really busy with other matters for a while. Fortunately, things are still improving, slowly but steady.
Okay, let's peek into a couple of screens.
The 'Options' screen
Turning volume on/off, and up/down. Support for changing this with gamepad is lacking should work at the moment.
The video settings needs more work.
The 'Race Setup' screen
Only normal race mode. As far as I know, changing the difficulty has the same impact on speed as in 0.6.1a, though it's not that easy to notice since there's no competing karts yet.
You wonder what's up with the font? Well, font handling is under development, and it's harder than expected, so for now it's rather messy. Don't worry, it won't stay like this forever. ;)
Different camera handling is being worked on as well, but exactly how it's going to behave in the end is not decided yet.
And, SDL is not in use anymore. It's no longer necessary, since Irrlicht and libOgg+libVorbis are going to take care of the SDL jobs for SuperTuxKart 0.7.
To sum up, there's still much work to do, and to all possible contributors - come on, join in, we need you! ;)
Note: As the "STK w/Irrlicht" branch is still in a very unstable state, the general public is recommended to use the latest stable version (0.6.1a) of SuperTuxKart.
