Another update on "STK w/Irrlicht"

Some days have passed, and it's about time to let you know we're still alive.
New, visible features are of course most exciting, so that's what I'll cover this time as well - sorry devs, we all know you have to do lots of boring work too, but it's not that easy to take screenshots of solved bugs. ;)

The kart selection screen

What "works":
Everything as far as I've seen. Some of the karts have been revamped, for example Nolok. It looks a lot better; he got a cooler looking kart more in style with his nature. :)

'About'/'Credits' screen

I was thinking of writing 'What "works:"' here as well when I realized there isn't much to do in here.
Nonetheless, you can lean back and enjoy a nice animation showing if not all, then most of the contributors to STK. The animation is simple but smooth; I've proposed adding an option to stop and/or change back and forth the different "pages". It's on an internal ToDo list, but obviously it's not top priority - if you want to help out with this or anything else, you are very welcome to do so. Just be sure to contact the developers first - preferrably via the mailing list - in order to avoid duplicating work and to get some coordination.


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.


  1. It's not Penny, it's Pidgin :D Penny is out of the game

  2. Oww, thanks for letting me know.
    And I thought I was able to cope with all the changes... :P

  3. I like the new kart selection screen :)

    (unlike the rest of the new menus, there are some screen I don't like)

  4. *Cries in a corner* I wish I hadn't seen these screenshots. They just make me want 0.7 even more.
