Java games rock!

« Posted 2005-03-11 07:02:06 »

Hi All,

I have created a birds eye view 2D driving game and would now like to add the feature of being able to race againts one of your previous laps. I have seen this in many games refered to as 'shadow racing'.

My question is how do I record all the actions of the car and then replay them to the screen? I have looked at the Robot class but wont this trigger the events for both cars including the one driven by the user?

I am also assuming I will have to record time against each action so that the replay knows how long to turn, accelerate etc.

Any help on this matter would be gratefully received.

if u found a way to record the persons position at whatever time, then u could just do a position time "graph" sort of thing and just show the ghost position for the time.

im not sure how u would go about doing this, if it were me i would probably start with arrays or something, but i think theres probably a better way.

good idea tho, i look forward to playing this:)
