SuperTuxKart

Version 1.3

Enhanced version of TuxKart racing game.

SuperTuxKart overview

SuperTuxKart is a Free 3D kart racing game, focusing on fun and not on realistic racing physics. Race with your kart on more than 10 tracks against Tux and his friends and be the first to cross the finishing line. With many items you can make sure that you will win. You can play with up to 4 friends on one PC racing against each other, or just try to beat the computer.

See the great lighthouse or drive through the sand and visit the pyramids. Race under water or in space, watching the stars passing by. Have some rest under the palms on the beach (watching the other karts overtaking you :) ). But don't fall in the volcano.

You can do a single race against other karts, compete in one of several Grand Prix, or try to beat the high score in time trials on your own.

What’s new in version 1.3

Updated on Sep 29 2021

Version 1.3:
Networking:
  • Server bookmarks
Graphics:
  • Introduce render resolution scaling for the modern renderer, by QwertyChouskie and Deve. For users with limited GPU power, this allows to get significant performance (FPS) gains at the cost of image quality. It can also allow additional graphics effects at the same performance. This is especially useful for users with high-resolution and high-DPI screens. The scaling only affects the 3D scene, the UI remains crisp at full-resolution.
  • Simplification through removal of unused deprecated graphical effects
  • Many updates to texture-related code
  • Auto-compute Level of Detail distances for 3D models set to use LOD depending on track complexity, by Samuncle. The geometry level parameter allows partial control over the drawing distances
  • Improved screen space reflection
General:
  • Switch port
  • Gamepad force feedback support
  • Highscore screen
  • Grand Prix highscores
  • Updates to the bundled tinygettext library
  • Enable custom skidding sounds for karts
  • Greatly sped up loading of tracks with many checklines through optimization
  • And many bugfixes and enhancements too small or specific to be detailed
User Interface:
  • Display the skin-appropriate iconset without having to restart
  • Fix some issues with the options menu when used during a pause
  • Add a confirmation dialog before closing the game through the "go back" key/button
  • In the result screen, display the race position with a number with 10 karts or more
  • In the result screen, display the challenge result and the requirements met or failed
  • Many small menu and dialogs improvements
  • Usability and functionality improvements to the debug menu
  • Clickable URLs in text
In-race UI:
  • Add visual and sound feedback when a timed challenge or timed game is about to end
Mobile:
  • Fix a precision issue that caused artefacted shadows
iOS:
  • Use MojoAL instead of OpenAL, which iOS currently has issues with
Tracks and modeling:
  • Alien Signal, by Samuncle
  • Ancient Colosseum Labyrinth
  • Improved Las Dunas Soccer
  • Add lap line extensions to Hacienda, Old Mine, Ravenbridge Mansion and Shifting Sands
  • New Pepper kart
  • Improved Adiumy, Emule, GNU and Sara karts

This is awesome. But it needs multiplayer mode aka allow users on the same WLAN to find each other and play together.

Wow. Version 0.8 is huge, with installments like story mode and many, many addons like new/add-on characters, and a huge number of add-on races and arenas. They aren't lying, the AI is better and the cars handle better. This is one really good game for totally free. Reminds me of something on a console system, a good one.

While it bombed a few times during option changes, once you're set up this game is extremely fun! There are several tracks that all very different to maneuver and many options that can completely change the way this game looks and plays. The tires leave skid-marks, so you can tell where cars are braking or spinning out. Depending upon settings, this game can be anything from a horrible to fantastic racing experience. But it's not a bad game, just highly variable. Keep playing with it until you find settings you like. On my 24" Imac, level 5 graphics in fullscreen was best. Totally fun and very addicting!!

Ehm. Where do I find the config file ??? -SuperTuxKart starts, plays the music, but never ends loading, so I cannot go to 'Tools : Delete Config'; AND the ReadMe file does *not* say anything about deleting the config file.

I finally got it to work on my G5. I think I got a few bad downloads for my G4 Powerbooks. It is working great in Full Screen on my G5 as well as an iMac running 10.5.8 (PPC) and I will download it again on my 2 G4 Powerbooks. As to the graphics and the app. I love it!

SuperTuxKart works great on my Original MacBookAir with integrated graphics which shows that it is not working in PPC Macs despite Auria's remarks.It is obvious that something is missing from this app that will make it run on PPC Macs. I must add that the previous version ran fine on my G5 and that was installed in 2009.

@Auria BTW it runs fine on my (Intel) MacbookPro using 10.5.8 but that does not have as great a Graphics card compared to the fast Radeon X800XT it has a Nvidia GeForce 8600M GT.A fairly good card but not as great as the X800XT which BTW is hard to obtain.

Yup!!! It works great on my MacbookPro.Consequently it is obviously Intel only. There is something missing in the app that will allow PPC users to run the app.

ON my G5 running 10.5.8 it just shows a blank screen and music, I don't understand why it is listed as universal.I'll try it on my Intel MacBookPro I bet it works fine there,forget about PPC as it just doesn't run there,

runs well, I like most refinements of weapon rules, AI karts are more difficult to beat, very nice new tracks (missing the other island "beach" though), hopefully they will bring back networking support soon. Great fun game for kids and childish adults :)

What can I say ? Awesome. It might be simple for some people, and since it's quite simple, even I can figure out how to race. =) I don't care much about the graphics; it's much more important that it's possible to steer the thing I'm driving. Maybe just one thing could be improved... The "present boxes" - they *could* be installer packages instead. ;) Well done, keep up the good work!
