SuperTuxKart Track Editor beta released!



Hi everyone!

I am happy to share the good news: the editor is ready for an open beta! Did you always want to create a track, but found Blender too complicated? Are you not afraid of trying a software which may crash? Are you ready to work hours on a track just to kill the program and lose everything? Are you good at finding bugs, reproducing and reporting them? Cool! I’m a pro marketing guy. This is our day!



After the last paragraph I am almost sure you can’t deny your desire to try the editor. How can you get it?

Windows:
For this special event I made a binary version again. You can download it from here:

 https://www.dropbox.com/s/ix7x3350ls7dsg0/editor_beta_gcc.zip

The zip contains an editor directory. Move it to your stk data directory, which contains Textures, Tracks, etc. All you have to do then is run the exe.

Linux:
If you are a Linux user unfortunately you have to build the sources yourself – I doubt it will cause much pain anyway.
The repository is still the same: https://github.com/mcsab/stk-editor
You have to build irrlicht as well. Be careful and read the readme – most likely you have to modify an Irrlicht header.
Also, the SuperTuxKart wiki has a manual and a short tutorial for the editor:

If you have any question, idea, or just found a bug, you can find me here, on the forum, or on irc.
I hope you will enjoy your work ;)

  2. Cool. The film doesn't show driving on the track, though. I assume it does work well, though :)

  5. Oh, I did not try on Win 8, however I thought it should definitely work.
    I'll check on my laptop with windows 8.1, and build there if it doesn't work.
    Sorry : (

  8. Can anyone help me by giving some general advice?
    Some days ago I always had an "appcrash" after selecting the trackname, the size and so on and the editor was closed automatically.
    Now I reinstalled it and now even earlier (as soon as I select the data folder after opening the editor) the editor crashes.
    Is there any general advice what I could do?
    Thank you very much.

    1. OK. Now it works. Copied it into the wrong folder. Sorry, that was really stupid of me. :-(

    2. If you have any problem, you should rather use the forum. I don't often check this old blog post lately.

      The editor has an own topic:
