Latest news: La Poma bikepark!

Hello everyone! We’re back one more Friday to let you know the latest BMX The Game development news produced here at Barspin Studios.

Today we want to talk about La Poma park. As many of you know, we tried to make a replica of La Poma one year ago, but the park suffered a lot of changes months ago. Due these changes besides the difficulty of making a dirt park, we just tried with a new technique called photogrammetry.

This week part of the team went to La Poma and could take aerial pictures thanks to a dron. Through those pictures we will be able to make a 3D and a realistic replica for the game. La Poma will be the first dirt park in BMX The Game, indeed. Notice La Poma is a huge terrain with a lot of difficulty and work (we want it to be as realistic as possible), but we’ll make our bests in order to include the park for the Early Access version (Steam).

Down below you have some pictures taken during the recording day.

That’s all for today. Have a nice weekend!

Latest news: loading screen!

Hello everyone! We’re back one more Friday to let you know the latest BMX The Game development news produced here at Barspin Studios.

As we previously announced  to backers, today we made a video showing the loading screen you will have on the beta. As the city will be huge, players will be able to play some tricks in a loading screen that will change every time.

This loading screen will be generated randomly with different spots and different bikepark pieces. We are also working on new minigames so you do not have to wait doing nothing while computer loads the city. Notice that this load screen is very simple for any computer to load fast. In this case, game loaded the stadium (Palau Sant Jordi) we talked about past week.

Finally, we have been reading you comments about asking new gameplay with tricks. About this, if we have not showed tricks so far, it is because we do not have everything implemented and polished yet. Until we have every trick finished, we won’t be able to show gameplay with tricks. Thanks for your patience. Have a good weekend.

Latest news: reaction time comparative video!

Hello everyone! We’re back one more Friday to let you know the latest BMX The Game development news produced here at Barspin Studios.

This week we made a comparative video to show you the improvement made in terms of the trick reaction time . Many of you have been complaining about the noticable delay of the 0.184 version tricks and today we wanted to show you how this delay has been reduced on the beta version. Specifically, the reaction time now is 3 times lower. You can check it on the video we made for you down below. Have a nice weekend!

Latest news: about arcade mode and new stadium!

Hello everyone! We’re back one more Friday to let you know the latest BMX The Game development news produced here at Barspin Studios.

About arcade mode:

As you asked us last week, today we are explaining what will be the arcade mode you could see in the menu that we are preparing. The main difference between the arcade mode and the simulator mode will revolve around the physics, also affecting the control, since the simulator, as you know, will require a higher ability with the controller.

The arcade mode is designed for those beginners who start to play for the first time as well as for those who want a more fun and fast style, without requirements. Have in mind that the tournaments and competitions will be only in simulation mode, as it is aimed at those who want a challenge.

This functionality is under development and you will be able to test it (in a work in progress state) on the coming beta.

New stadium:

Finally, we show you a few images (work in progress) of the Palau San Jordi that we are recreating to get inside the game. Among other things, it will be scene of the park editor. For more details, stay tuned to the next posts on the blog.

Latest news: new setting menu!

Hello everyone! We’re back one more Friday to let you know the latest BMX The Game development news produced here at Barspin Studios.

Today we want to show you the work done over the last few days in terms of optimization. This week is about the new way to adjust and configure the qualities of the game. In the pre-alpha versions you could only change the quality using a keyboard key (low-medium-high-ultra). If you wanted something more personalized, the option of changing an XML with multiple parameters was available too.

Now we have prepared a setting menu so everything can be easily modified in pause mode. It is much easier, intuitive, faster and with multiple adjustment options. This allows many more computers to run the game.

Let us show you a video of this down below. Have a good weekend!
