New Coaster Building Simulation/Demo Game!!

Tuesday, August 21, 2001 4:16 AM
There's a new rollercoaster building demo that just got released. From the looks of it, it's set to compete along the lines of "No Limits".

The name of it is "Scream Machines" by Wounded Heart Interactive, and allows a lot of freedom in building the rollercoasters. Currently, only 1 type of track/train is allowed. But at least you can build at your own leisure instead of watching pre-built rollercoasters.

Very realistic in terms of physics, tracks/trains, and the layout of an actual rollercoaster.

Woah, is it actually a editable demo?! For a sim like this, it's rare to be given an editable demo (well, as far as I know, which admitedly isn't very far).

But cool, will have my ISDN grabbing this one tonight (damn this machine at work for not having a CD writer!).

It's pretty nice, has some bugs though when doing heartlines or corkscrews however. Other than that, I think it's a pretty nice editor that beats out UC3D already!

Wow, that thing is buggy! If you have a Voodoo 4 or 5, don't get it until the next demo version comes out, unless you want to ride coasters only. The graphics get all screwed up when using the menus in build mode.

So, if you have a Voodoo 4 or 5, don't get this yet if you want to build coasters, you probably will have the same problems I did.

i have a very fast cable modem and a CD-Writer....How big is this file...does it screw with your system? Should I burn it to CD? How do I know if I have a good videocard? Any of your answers would be appreciated!

Wow, this is a pretty fun game IMO. I have a Nvidia Riva TNT2 and it runs perfectly. If you have a cable modem like I do, it won't take more than a minute or two(Give or take a few minutes). File size is 360kb(Just the game though)

A little hard to learn at first, but once you get the hang of it, it's enjoyable :)

The demo requires DirectX8

 

For those of you getting errors relating to D3D8.dll, go to www.microsoft.com/directx and download DirectX8

Yes, there is a new game out there.  I think that it is good, but I am having troubles making the transition from my comfy spot in Ultra Coaster over to this new game.  I am more psyched about No Limits, but this game has a TON of options.  The Danimation forums are going gaga over it.  Have fun!

This game has so many bugs... The biggest is if you press the F6 key during the ride, the car will slow down then start going backwards. I even rode the lifthill backwards.

For anyone who has downloaded the demo...

Question:
It works fine for me. The frame rate is a solid 50 to 200 fps with a Voodoo 3500, however... the land is all gray and shades of gray, almost like it is completely missing the land textures.

For whom has played the demo... is this supposed to be like this where the land is gray, or is it actually supposed to be grassy green?

I know the game has many bugs. The sound is kind of quiet and sounds a little ripped off of RCT, and the camera isn't as free-roaming as needed!
