Subject description: Racing Game
 

Super TuxKart (Version 0.6, released Feb 17, 2009) - supertuxkart-0.6-linuxi486.tar.bz2 91 MB 2 3 4

http://supertuxkart.sourceforge.net/Main_Page

ITAmember made a pet of the latest STK, untested, but it can be found here. Thanks ITAmember Very Happy

Haha, what can I say? This game is so much fun! Smile I had a ton of fun playing it with my siblings, I thought I might introduce it to the rest of the Puppy Community. Very Happy

A go-kart racing game featuring Tux and friends

SuperTuxKart is a Free 3d kart racing game. You can play with up to 4 friends on one PC, racing against each other or just try to beat the computer. (a network multiplayer feature is under development)

You can do a single race against other karts, compete in one of several Grand Prix, or try to beat the high score in time trials on your own. Bonus courses can be unlocked by completing challenges. There is also a battle mode much like the "three balloons" battle mode in Mario Kart.

Extract the download to where ever you want and click /bin/supertuxkart to play.

Requirements
To play this game, you're going to need 3D acceleration and OpenGL support setup on your computer, so I've afraid it's not one of Puppy's low end spec kind of game. Please note the game may also lag on a CPU 700mhz or less. SDL is also required. I found I needed to make a symlink of libglut.so.3 to supertuxkart-0.6-linuxi486/bin.

Just to give credit where it's due, the download for this game is from the developers site as it runs just fine extracting the original download.

You can set any resolution you like in the config file at /root/.supertuxkart and disable clouds but this had little effect on performance.

By the way 700mhz pent 3, rage pro 128 card, wrapped in banana skin....
