    I don't know this is a kind of bug or not?

    Sometimes when the games ended, warcraft.exe become not responding.

    Not only me, some ppl in my rooms also said it.

    Suggestion:

    To make the game more fun. Why don't u makes . . . . some event or items that can shoot each with any abnormally effect.

    Example for event:
    Fog , make a vision in the racecource become white. [50% percent transparency]
    Raining, make a knockback when u turn left or right , more worse.
    Meteor fall[drop from sky], anyone who touch it. Make them stun for 0.1s and knockback for 150 range.
    Wind, everytime u click "w" , u need 2 "w" for increase 1 speed.
    Thunder [drop from sky], who touch it will make them slow ms xx% with x seconds. and their size become smaller
    Snow , some water patter become freeze and u couldn't change any direction after u ride it until it crushed the wall or units..

    Just example.

    You dont need to spam 'w' or up arrow key to move,it's only for race start.
    Also nice idea for weather events,raining and fog should be added,but fog should be like 70-80% transparency. 50% is just too little.

    Ye the map seems to have a very long de-load time for some reason.
    I'll try work out what causes it and fix it.

    I've not added any powerups yet.. I guess I'm considering it though.

    Nice but . . .

    Man i will say seriously, i loved your map, but the are a few things that you should correct:

    1- when a unit enters a region, put to appear in the screen : go right, go left
    To the people know where to go, i got confused and i lost 2 races because of this.

    2- My friends has crashed nearly to a jump and then he went into the jump, it failed, he stay stucked in the water because it bugged.

    3- in the city track, in the first tunnel you going in, i entered by the left cornet and i have been teleported to the middle of the rocks (in the left of the track)

    4- In the map that is the florest (many plants and etc.) put a better information i crashed the plants so many times that i have losted my self ^^ (it can be fixed by putting the number 1 suggestion)

    5- Only this :D, the rest is perfect, really cool cameras and etc ^^

    6- if i were you, i would put the upgrades for each rider in those shops i mean, the first rider (green rune) could be a better upgrade than the rider of orange runer (because he is better than the rider of green rune) so it would keep the game balanced ^^

    For first suggestion,i don't think it's needed. You just need to examine the race before you start,but if it's a problem,then there should be a command to enable/disable messages that tell you where to go.

    Its not that easy to do something like that, but I could maybe add arrow signs where people could get confused

    Another 2 bugs

    Hey man, i've found 2 others bugs:

    1- I bet everthing i had in a friend and i losted everything and it wasnt any way to i win money again for i bet or run, put at least 1 of income or something like this.


    2- When the game end for some reason when you press ok the screen keeps all black and you must put your computer in logoff mode and then turn it on again. Try to fix it please :D


    Edit: Sorry i put 2 posts =\

    Edit 2: try to prolong the game a little bit because with a little time you already reach to the purple rider and you've competed all the tracks ^^

    Edit 3: im not saying your game is bad even because i liked it very much lol im playing it since 8 am :D

    Nice fixes

    Nice fixes but i think that you should correct:

    1- when a player dont have more money he cant do anything to win money. Only asking for other persons. You should put 1gold income every round or something for the ones that didnt raced or dont have more money.

    2- remember, the black screen ^^



    Edit: Is this 'wall stuck fixed bug' the fix of the city map?

    Oh nice, i saw that this version doesnt have the black screen problem :D

    Nice fix!


    You should correct - - - - - -

    1: You're right, it's good to run alone in a track but you shouldnt win money for that yes?

    That happened when i was playing with 2 friends and i've started alone and i've won money for that u.u, that isnt correct

    2: If a player doesnt have money anymore what will he do? ask for other players?

    3: At the f11 (resources) put to give to another player just 2 coins or 1

    4: More tracks maybe?

    5: The normal game camera but locked.


    I give you 9/10 for the map (nice creativity and game system)

    Just need to work on the details :D

    @TheCloust

    "1: You're right, it's good to run alone in a track but you shouldnt win money for that yes?"
    You win 20g yes, but thats actually the amount you payed to enter the race.
    You do make a gradual profit from racing alone if you pay for groups of races you may notice, but I like it like this, allows people to play in single player and gradually afford a new horse.

    "2: If a player doesnt have money anymore what will he do? ask for other players?"
    At the moment yes, or they can quit. I don't want to be too generous on those that've betted all their money away, or there'd be no risk!
    However I was considering putting in a job to work in the stables. You just buy a contract from a person in the stables, your peasant disappears for a few races, and you return with 20g!

    "3: At the f11 (resources) put to give to another player just 2 coins or 1"
    If you hold CTRL while clicking you can send a 1g at a time.

    "4: More tracks maybe?"
    When I have time I was planning on maybe adding 2 more. Perhaps a mine themed one and something else, I'm a bit busy at the moment to do a lot.

    "5: The normal game camera but locked."
    Theres a problem with the camera?
    Oh! I think I get what you mean, one of the camera settings to be the regular Wc3 one. Yes I guess I could do that. Should it rotate with the racer's direction?

    You mean rotate to racers direction like the dramatic camera? if it's that, no please because it's confuse to play like that ^^.

    Its because i have friends who dont like neither the top down, 3rd person or 1rd person because they say that they can't ''see'' anything with those camera except for the top down that they say that it's too strange ^^.

    Yes i mean, the normal war 3 camera but locked because then it wouldnt have complainings about the cameras, if you agree ^^

    And you're right, i didnt think about the 20gold ^^

    Yes, you could do the work because if people leave you need to rehost and that's boring =\ :D
