December 2020 - Super Skidmarks
« on: December 10, 2020, 10:49:41 am »
AGA Game of the Month for December, 2020, is Super Skidmarks!

This package was suppose to be an upgrade that was due to be released several months after the original SkidMarks was completed (Dec 93).  It was originally intended that we would release a new track editor that would be friendly enough for users to create there own tracks.

Sadly it was not to be and several months later, we decided to simply add another two track disks to the original package. These were completed some 6 months ago.

We then found by using a different sprite system we could have 8 cars with AGA machines and set about redesigning the sprite converter which we are proud to announce has been included in this release for users to add their own cars. With new cars and new tracks we then thought a quick rewrite of the front end was in order. That was 4 months ago.

It may be due to bad management, too many other projects to distract us, general laziness, or just bloody mindedness but SUPER SKIDMARKS is finally finished, we hope it was worth the wait.......

Are we going with the first track? and will it be best lap time, or points over races? its a tricky one!

Does it list track times along with points on the results screen? If so we can go off best times across all tracks played? Or should we limit it to a certain track only?

I took a couple of screen shots of how i was going, I will post them tonight to show you the screen, its keeps a total of points but only displays the best time for that race so far as I can tell.

Hi all, sorry, the mad rush to end of year has meant I still have not had a chance to start any of the games.  Will make an effort tonight and post the rules.  I think it makes sense to just use one track for the competition, if that is possible?

Yes, sounds good to me! I forgot to mention I did them all on the first Track.. not sure how to tell if it has a name or not?

Nicely done there! I'm afraid I'm pretty outclassed here.
