This is a MMF2 MFA file compressed as a Zip archive.

I guess I could have easily made it with TGF. (or even Klik and Play come to think of it.)

This is a fairly simple racing engine where 4 Computer controlled cars race around a track.

It uses a lot of detectors around the edge to keep the cars on the track and there are a few other detectors to slightly alter their racing lines at random so the cars don't race completely perfectly every time.

Also it's fairly easy to customize the speeds and such using the cars Alterable values.

it does work relatively well. the only real downside i see to it are any sort of random factors to manipulate the cars movement, and the amount of objects you've got cluttering the frame. other than that it seems nice and solid.

actually... there is a good amount of randomization. lol well done. haha

Sorry but I don't think it's a good AI since the cars don't try to not hurt others and don't try to follow the better way.

This AI is like launching balls into a pinball game...

But it's a nice try.

Why is this in the GOTW poll? only complete games should appear in there not that I dont like competition but this is an engine!
Posted by AndyUK 26th January, 2008

lol so is something else. Did the admins decide to include engines? i can't remember what the ruling was.

I think it's wrong in all honesty.

I don't know, some engines are pretty good

Thank you for telling what the game is made using.

I hate it when people don't tell what they used.

But, i wish you woulda made this in TGF or KnP.

Seems like overkill not to have.

You probably could of just made each car have left and right detectors instead of having heaps of active which tell it which way to turn.
Posted by AndyUK 23rd April, 2008

maybe, but then again making the road side solid, which i would have to for detectors would make the players car not be able to take shortcuts and such.
