Fixing Big Rigs 2009-06-07 00:03:28


I'm working on a little project. I'm making Big Rigs: Over the road racing into the game it was supposed to be. Fixed physics, glitches, and other bullshit this game has. Once it's done I might release the fix for your game (if you already have big rigs installed) as a third party patch
So far done:
Added the original cars: Toyota Celica, Nissan 350z, Hummer H1 (still bugged), and Ford Explorer
Fixed "You're Winner" to "You Win"
Fixed AI
And other minor fixes

Here is a video I made with a brief introduction on what's going to be happening and a gameplay video of current process. (Video may not be processed yet because I just uploaded it.)

I will be providing updates as I go along along with videos and in-detail descriptions. :3

It would be great if you added more tracks and more cars also programming police to come after you in the game.

good luck with the fixing. Hope you make some money out of it

The hummer is still messed up, sadly. I'll try to fix this when I get an sco plugin for 3ds max.

Isn't big rigs the lowest rated game of all time on metacritic?
Anyways, i'd love to see you turn that shit into something playable.

Some little kid, blindfolded, programmed a completely unfinished racing game and then a couple of douchebags knocked him out and released it for the lulz.

The game is technically finished, they released a pre-alpha version of the game which is why it's so bad

The grass textures look like shit. Maybe you could nick some from the source engine or something. Something that at least looks half decent.


Prepare for unforeseen consequences.

You should fix the ground textures and make them more clear.

Looks good man, the only thing is the ground textures, they are extremely rough. Could you snag some off of Google Images or not?

just wondering

The textures are actually good, the developers fucked up the UV mapping and stretched the texture instead of tileing it, I'll be fixing that aswell.

Ohh ok, that makes sense, cool. Will we see a beta download anytime soon?

You should keep the hummer like that, for the spirit of the game.

Yeah, have it be a secret unlockable vehicle. :3

Honestly, I think this is a wonderful thing you're doing. A lot of times developers get screwed over in the process of making a game, and are forced by their publishing company to release unfinished and horribly bugged products.
I'm sure the original creaters would be proud.

Next you should tackle Ninjabread Man. XD

Eww. Fake bloom never looked good, add true HDR. And if you're sticking to bloom, PLEASE fix the ground texture. It looks so awkward.

Make a check list of everything you need to fix / overhaul.
Immediately I can think of:
Floor textures
Bridge collision
The UI's general hideousness
Actual license plates
Car physics

And tone the damned bloom down!
