And yet another (DOS-based) Car Editor
« on: June 21, 2014, 01:46:16 PM »
Hi folks,

there may by now be more car editors than cars for Stunts, but what the heck:
I want to share this tiny tool with a community that provided me with some much-desired, missing information on RES file parameters.
Please find attached a DOS-based car manager/editor that took me back 20 years.
See the included README file for details.

Kind regards

Thanks!

And wooooo for Pascal code! ;D  If I find a moment I can add a couple of lines to link the graphic driver inside the main exe, so you don't need the external BGI.

Oh, that (including the BGI driver) is a good point! If you could point me to a howto, I'll gladly do the job.

(The online help states that one has to link the driver and register it, but the RegisterBGIDriver source code snippet seemingly only explains how to register a driver that is present in the file system...)

Sorry, I'm a bit busy in these days, but you can start reading here.

If it's still confusing, I'll dig out the relevant code next week ;)

Thanks for the link, much appreciated. I'll be on the road most of next week, so there's no hurry at all, and then I'll look into it next weekend.

Ah, of course I couldn't stop myself from looking into it, and see - it was easier than expected. :)

Release Notes for this update:
- BGI driver now linked into the EXE
- Maximum amount of cars in garage increased to 32 (from 30)
- new hint regarding accuracy added to the engine screen
- more helpful RPM lines added to the RPM/velocity graph
