12.03.09-24.03.09 commit summary

SuperTuxKart "Irrlicht version" is now the main focus, hence the short list of changes.
But don't worry, the following is a short summary of the changes regarding the Irrlicht version.
  • One kart (Tux) and two tracks (Beach and Lighthouse) was implemented, together with items and a preliminary graphical user interface.
Doesn't sound like much has happened? Well, remember this is only a short summary, and there's really a lot of work behind those few lines in this blog post. First, the developers needs to rewrite the old code to have a good foundation for more features later on. So it will obviously take some time before the Irrlicht version will be playable in the right meaning of the word.
Also, I'm not writing from a programmer's view, hence the somewhat dull summary. ;P

Anyway, as the time goes by, I'll give some peeks of the development and the new features that'll come.
And remember, if you want to help out with SuperTuxKart you're most certainly welcome.

PS: Regarding the screenshots of STK "Irrlicht version" my main computer just broke down, so it might take a while before my promise will be a reality.


  1. You should name this blog "SuperTuxKart Dev Blog" or "STK Dev Blog" or something that indicates that the blog has to do with STK. This will help it being found on google and being identifiable on

  2. Xhacker posted a comment which I rejected by accident, so here it is:

    I have a question: Can STK support Chinese characters? I want translate it to Chinese.

  3. To Xhacker: Not at the moment, but 0.7 will most certainly have better font support, hopefully with support for Chinese characters as well.

    To qubodup: I did it this way because of aesthetics, but I admit it's not optimal for referring websites. I'll try to get 'SuperTuxKart' in the header on a different line later on (the blog will get redesigned as well when our improved website goes live, hopefully soon).
