Another jam, another game.
I’m still stuck in the neon/tron/outrun/synthwave theme, so if it looks a bit like the last game I made - that’s good!
This one is a racing game. But you race only against the clock - you have limited time to get to a checkpoint/gate, you get some extra time if you can make it, else it’s game over.
The track is kind of a twisted Möbius strip, you start on ‘top’ and after making a full lap you end up on the ‘bottom’ side (look for the triangle gate to mark laps).
DOWNLOAD (win and linux, sorry mac it wouldn’t have worked anyway):
As always I’ll be posting the full source code on Github, fixing the major bugs and adding some missing features - I just need to first do all the stuff I neglected because I was making this game.
Donations are welcome, but just reposting and sharing the game with others (or making a better version of it once the source is up!) would be great.
Another jam, another game.
That looks gorgeous! I’m having a problem with it though, double-clicking the .exe file after extracting doesn’t open the game. The window opens and closes in a literal flash.
There should be a sincr.log log file somewhere in /users/user_name/AppData/Local/
I’ll put the source on github today or tomorrow so it should be easier to debug when the errors are printed to the console.
Well, I found it, here you are:
Known pipe types: wglGraphicsPipe (all display modules loaded.) :display:wgldisplay(error): Could not create GL context. :display:wgldisplay(error): Closing window because no valid context is available. :ShowBase(warning): Unable to open 'onscreen' window.

Just to communicate, I’m not expecting you to be all customer-service like, but I figured the log file would help you when you get around to it.
Do you have the latest drivers installed for your graphics card?
Well, yes, but my graphics card is an Intel i5-2430M, which is no longer available to update on their website it’s so old. XD I’m running Windows 10 on a windows 7 laptop, so I’m not surprised my system is struggling.
There’s a config.ini file next to the exe, try removing the ‘gl-version = 3 2’ under the [panda3d] section. I got the game running on a Intel Atom tablet with multisamples = 0 at 800x600 at about 20-30fps so it’s not that resource heavy, but the Atom GPU (kind of) support ogl 4.x, and google tells me i5-2430m is only good for ogl 3.1. The shaders I used are version 130 so that’s ogl 3.0 - it could work if you kink out ‘gl-version = 3 2’
That got it going! Thank you!
I’ve gone through a couple rounds of this (excellent music choice!) It’s a blast, however when running out of time I have to close the whole program and restart, as the checkpoint never resets the time twice. That leaves only half the time on a restart. (unless this is intentional?)
