Title: Questions
Post by: PiBoSo on January 22, 2014, 11:09:28 pm
A forum member asked some questions via PM.
Since they may be interested for the community, too, it is probably better to answer them here.

Quote
Will there be terrain deformation, and how good will it be?
Will there be a tear-off system?
Are the physics good for both supercross and motocross?
Will there be different tractions, example, sand, hardpacked etc.
Will the game support an xbox360 controller, and will it work with dual sticks? (left = bike, right = rider)
What kind of animations will be in the game?
Will the trackobjects have physics? (haybales moving once you hit them etc)
Will the bike have any damage system?
Is there an online mode?
And can you tell me some more about making tracks. I've made quite a lot of heightmaps for other games already, and I would love to make some tracks for mx-bikes in the future, but I want to know what will be posible (Objects, traction etc...)


- Terrain deformation is in progress. Will probably not be featured in the first release, but integrated later.
- Yes, there are tearoffs
- What is the difference? ??? It should work for both.
- Of course different terrains will be simulated, and it will be possible to choose between different tires to better fit different conditions.
- The xbox 360 controller is supported ( no pre-defined profiles, though, controls must be manually assigned ), and it will be possible to use the right stick for the rider movements
- All the needed animations will be ingame  :)
- Trackside objects will be static
- No damage is planned for the bike
- It will be possible to race online
- It's too early to tell, because tools are still in progress. Tracks will start with 16 bits heightmaps, and then it will be possible to assign different terrain materials and integrate 3D objects.

Thanks for the fast reply PiBoSo, really appriciated.
I can absolutly NOT wait for this game to come out. Even though I will probably lose a lot of speed in Mx Simulator when I'm going to play this game (different physics and such).
Here's something I've worked on the last 2 days. It isn't specific for any game, I just wanted to try out the program once more, and I'll probably make a render out of it (and maybe it will work for mx-bikes?).

Who can guess what track this is?

MX Bikes will support modding, so it will be possible to add any bike.
It will be possible to add just model or physics ? Or both ?
If we can add model, what type of model ? Just bike, or also helmet, wheels ect.. ?

Helmets, bike models, physics... Everything will be moddable.
There are checks to prevent clients from running with different physics on the same server, though.

How will sizing the rider/bike work? Is it posible to size a bike down? Or will the rider sit in the wrong spot then?
It'd be cool to have 'joints' which you can put on your bike model, so the rider's position will be good.

If possible it would be really great to have separate model/texture files for each piece of gear. That way we can mix and match gear just by selecting a different helmet or different gloves, etc. instead of having to edit the model or skin files directly.

Helmet, suit, boots and gloves use a separate texture. The helmet model can be changed, too.

I'd also like to know if there's something like an user ID?

Also something good to know is the maximum tris count for bike, and rider models in this game. I asume it's higher than Mx Sim, so then I'll be making some more detailed models for sure!

Will we be able to make new animations for the rider?
Will we be able to make animations for the track objects, bike and rider?
If the one above isn't posible, will we be able to make texture animations?
And something pretty importand. Will there be an awesome girl with a 30sec board at the starting gate?  :P

What would be the use of scripts on the server?
There is a user ID.
At the moment there are no plans to support multiple rider animations.
There is limited support for texture animation on the tracks.
What should be animated on the bike?

In Mx Simulator we use scripts when we host an event. That way it's way easier, and faster to get everyone in the right spot (spectator, or race).
I've actually no idea why I asked for the animations on the bike...  ???

There is an "automatic clutch" option to prevent stalling, but it's also possible to manually control it.

Title: Re: Questions

One more batch of questions sent via PM.
Please use this thread for questions; answers may be interesting for everyone.

Quote
Will you be using mesh collision ?
Will you be make each bike model KTM,RMZ,YZF,KXF and CRF ?
Will you be releasing the templates or blend file for the models for people to put after market parts on pipes,twin walls etc?
How will the tear of system work
Is it going to be a mapped button?
Will you have to do it while in the air? or just when ever you like?
Is there going to be a limit on tear's off each race?
Will you be able to take it off?
Terrain deformation
Will it be up to the track marker on what erodes faster and how deep it will go?
will it work like your Go kart simulator?
What will the net code be like?


1. The terrain uses the heightmap for collisions.
Trackside objects use the mesh.
The bike uses a mix of basic shapes for collisions.
2. No. But the community will be able to add the missing bikes.
3. Templates for paints will be released. There is no planned support for "aftermarket" bike parts.
4 + 5 + 6 + 7. The "tearoff" control can be assigned to any input. It can be used any time, but there is a limited number of tearoffs for each run.
8. ???
9. Already answered. Terrain deformation is in progress. Will probably not be featured in the first release, but integrated later.
10. Too soon to tell
11. There will be a lot of things in common with Kart Racing Pro
12. ???

The tools to integrate tracks will be available from the beginning.
There is no "editor", though. 3rd party programs must be used to create the terrain and models.

How will crashes work? We will get trown off the bike, won't we? I'm kinda sick of Mx Sim where the rider's hands sticks to the handlebars and the feet just 'ragdoll' around.
I asume we won't need to run back to our bike and start it again, will we?
How does the bike handle on bumps, and in deep ruts? I'm sure we'll see some sand tracks once everyone is modding for this game, and it'd suck if the bike won't handle good in these deep bumps/ruts.

I don't like things like "Allow wheelies: on/off" some people use it as off in MXS, I think that is an advantage in some parts of the track. I think less of these options would make it more realistic and simulator feel, everyone would use the same thing.
Title: Re: Questions
Post by: pablius on January 30, 2014, 04:27:55 pm
This is my first message, so hello everybody, nice to be here!!! Anyway, it seems to me familiar all those nicks hahah I just want to say CONGRATULATIONS to PiBoSo for this game, looks sick and we are excited about it.

Back on topic, PiBoSo can't answer the question about stability...

This game looks sick but I hope that it shouldn't follow the way that MXSimulator did in the past. I mean, if the key to be the fastest rider is a stability setup it will be frustrating for players.

In the real life it's all up to you, yo can't play with the gravity effects, maybe that speed to lean would be nice, I understand that each player has a different feeling. But in MXSimulator there are many options that people don't know how it works. Same with the rider damping and spring, the game is way different depending on the setup you choose.

I think that those physics details are more important than tear off, crashes effects or mobile objects. The most important ability of a motocross rider is his own body control, fitness and mentality. So, the most important thing in a game would be the fingers control and mentality, not the numbers in a stability setup.

Title: Re: Questions
Post by: 46K on January 30, 2014, 04:36:31 pm
Agreed. Less stability and stuff that I said in my last post. Just suspensions settings and similar. Because everyone will just set up the rider to make it faster.

You may want to give a look at demos of other sims using the same engine, like GP Bikes: http://www.gp-bikes.com/?page=downloads
This would give an idea of the features ( like replay controls ) and general "feel" that MX Bikes will have.

My wish list.

Multiplayer
If yes, multiplayer erode
Rider shadows
Multiplayer servers around the world (For example a server in Europe, one in Australia (definitely a must hehe) a server in the United States)
Bike sounds based of a in real life bike not just code
The ability to turn other riders bike sounds down and leave you bikes volume
Oculus rift support
85cc bike size range would be cool to see but not a must

Not even asking much hahaha

The last one will be possible with modding, we should be able to mod in smaller bike and rider models and make 50s that have different physics and power properties than other bikes. he said we can mod everything. i love him, now we just need people smart enough to do the modding.

Also people should be able to implement new sounds, modding, hell even erode if theyre good enough modders and he has open source code

Thanks for the fast reply PiBoSo, really appriciated.
I can absolutly NOT wait for this game to come out. Even though I will probably lose a lot of speed in Mx Simulator when I'm going to play this game (different physics and such).
Here's something I've worked on the last 2 days. It isn't specific for any game, I just wanted to try out the program once more, and I'll probably make a render out of it (and maybe it will work for mx-bikes?).

Who can guess what track this is?

It has been considered, but in the end it was decided to keep MX Bikes about MX / SX only. So no ATV, no speedway, ...
Supermoto is probably more suited as a mod of GP Bikes.

What are the collisions like with other riders? I'm fed up of tapping someones back tyre and falling on the floor constantly on MXS.
Also, what are the falloffs like? Will it feature the rider to fully fall of the bike or to grab onto the handlebars and roll off the track?

Sounds perfect, I noticed that in GP bikes when you fall off sometimes the bike keeps going by itself. Is this something you'll fix for MXB? Like the engine cutting to idle or off?
Also how will the fall offs work? Like in GP bikes where you reset it by (R) or are you gonna have to manually get back to your bike?

I'm really looking forward to see more content (Screenshots/Videos) when you got the time for it.

I hope I don't sound like a spoiled brat, I understand if you don't have time to answer questions etc.

That the focus is just MX, maybe there's a bit more than just changing the wheel model and tileinfo involved. Thats also associated with MX sim. Are we even sure this game works on the same principles?

It's fully mod able. So it's possible. Just might not work well. He said you can mod custom physics. So make some new physics, make new wheel models, change the way the ground feels to grip like asphalt and see how it goes.

Looking from the video, there isn't any way of seeing what the rider looks like while sideways in the air (Scrubbing, whipping etc) I was just curious as to see what you have come up with, will there be a control to move the rider side to side in the air? Maybe even on the ground?

Not 100% sure. But since this game uses the base of GP-bikes, it will most likely include an angry animation, a win animation and left/right/back look.

The physics improvements will soon be ported to GP Bikes, too.
There are many things that make supermoto closer to GP than MX. For example:
- racing regulations ( sighting lap, warmup lap, jump start, ... )
- tyres wear and temperatures

No Multiplayer without buying, may be nice to at least let us test it out in alpha to see what it is like.  I know a lot of us are unhappy with some of the multiplayer in Sim specifically collisions.

So it sounds like we will be stuck with the default boot and chest protector models. Obviously we can change the color but that doesn't help if we want to have a different model boot (e.g. Gaerne sg12, Alpinestars Tech 10) or chest protector. Not a huge deal but maybe in the future we could get those split up. Doesn't change the fact that I'm really looking forward to this game.

Edit: P.s. Would be really great to have separate models/paints for goggles as well. Not everyone wants the same goggles on their helmet.

I remember reading that we will be able to change the helmet model but will we also be able to change the boot model, chest protector model, and neck brace model? I realize it will probably be possible to change the entire rider but it would be really nice to be able to mix and match different boots/chest protector/neck brace without having to create a custom rider model.

He just said boots will have seperate paints. Which most likely means they will be a separate model so you can model whatever you want and put them there

Separate paints does not mean a separate model; it means a separate texture.

How could modders rig gloves and boots to the existing skeleton?
Also, having fixed boots and gloves models would mean less fragmentation and less contents to sync between users.

i personally think this would be better anyway, yeah we can make different skins which resemble the actual models irl. at least more focus will go into gameplay rather than these lesser details. sure i would like different model goggles and boots but its kinda irrelevant imo.

PiBoSo, can you share why you are allowing a separate neck brace model but not a separate chest protector model? Just curious what the implications are for the chest protector that are not present for the neck brace. Thanks.
Title: Re: Questions
Post by: AWood on February 05, 2014, 09:53:20 pm
I for one can't stand wearing a chest protector in a game.

But, does that mean somebody could take your model and then change the boot section to a new model (still attached to the rest that's original) and put it back in game. Then when we skin the new boots they're an updated model than the rest. Since they're all attached.

On this point I think having separate models actually ensures less fragmentation. With separate models you can create hundreds of different gear combos just by downloading a couple boot models, a couple goggle models, a couple helmet models, and a couple chest protector models. Without separate models if someone wants Tech 10 boots, a Shoei helmet, Oakley goggles and a Fox chest protector they have to create their own specific model which they then have to share and everyone has to download. I hope this makes sense. If it doesn't let me know and I will try to explain better.

Rider lateral and longitudinal lean are separate from bike lean.

I think this is a big issue that came up in MX Simulator.  If you have a set of red gear and you're boots are tied to the gear you end up making 40 different combinations of that gear so people can use red gear with white alpinestar boots.  Where as similar to MX vs atv you make boots in the different colors and they can select any boots with the different gear.  Meaning 1 set of red gear with any boots you choose.

it will save huge amounts of space on my hard drive.

This way you would almost never see the same gear setup and it would make it really easy for modelers/skinners to release content. All they would need to do is release a single model and a few color textures for the model.

This is just my opinion on what would be best. I understand that it may not make the first version and that it may not ever be done.

This is where the problems start to show. If someone create a new neck brace such as a leatt brace and another person creates a new chest protector such as a fox race frame, there is no way to use both unless the modelers get together and create every possible combination:

Chest Protector>Neck Brace
Fox, Leatt
Fox, Stock
Fox, None
Stock, Leatt
None, Leatt
...I think that is all the combinations.

Then in order to see each of these combinations when racing online, users need to download all of these models.

With separate models users only need to download 2 models: Leatt brace, and fox race frame chest protector.

I dont understand why you guys care about that much.

Chest protectors and neck braces are just for protections only in real life and they doesnt look good obviously.

Also hopefully you guys don't ride your chest protector over the jersey. Please tell me you dont! lol.

For me it always was annoying when a skin creater creates 1 gear and ended up to upload 10 with different boots and stuff.
Wouldn't care about the boots that much. Never had a problem back in the days with the arcade games where they had 5 different skins to choose.

Hopefully those amazing creators of the game concentrate more on the important things!

this is a huge issue in mxs as you need to skin them to your gear, so you need to download some ones custom texture to see there name on their jersey.

id like to see an editable name/number just like reflex with different fonts. or even better, an 256x256 alpha overlay that aligns over your jersey so that people can have custom numbers overlays that works with all the different skins. the overlay would be registered to only that users id.

That would be pretty cool! :D I downloaded Reflex today (only €5 on steam!) just to make the wait of MX Bikes a bit shorter :P Reflex is a decent game, much better than I thought it would be! Terrain deformation, graphics, sound, jersey customization, number,... When you play reflex with onboard view without the HUD it's even cooler! :D

But guys, don't stress PiBoSo and Snappe with requests like serperate boots and all other small details... Ask this after the first alpha release and let them focus now on what's really necessary! ;) Basic bike model, basic rider and a track.

You obviously haven't played mx sim or you would understand why the having the boots be a model is indeed very important.  as a skin creator do you want to make the exact same color gear 12 different times just because you have to make white thor gear with white boots, black boots, red boots, green boots, then add the different brands and also their associated color schemes.

this really comes down to the fact that when your in the menu selecting your gear you will instead of being able to select 2014 white thor gear, then going down one menu and selecting between 12 different boots, you will now have to go to the menu and try to find 2014 white thor gear with the boots you want, which usually means looking through hundreds of options.  Not only does this cause a problem with gear selection but it also makes for huge file sizes because instead of being able to make 2014 thor gear in 4 colors you now have to make that same gear in 4 colors, but also make each one with the different boot options so now you have made almost 20 different sets of gear.

made an example to try and help:

(http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d74/ShowtimeMx/gearoptions.jpg) (http://s33.photobucket.com/user/ShowtimeMx/media/gearoptions.jpg.html)

Ultimately the reason why having boots separate is then you have someone who is amazing at making boots make the best set for the community and then everyone else can focus on their gear and not how many combinations of red gear they need to do.  This will also make MX Bikes organization within the files and file sizes a lot better.  I want to choose from the gear I want and then select from 12 great textures of boots in game not 450 different boots on 450 different gear sets. 

Hope this helps I may or may not have just confused a lot of the little ones.

so to your stop being a bitch, the thing you don't understand if this isnt done from the start it will be harder to do later on and at that point everyone will have to redo their rider skins.  so if that means they have to spend extra time to get us that option, I can gladly wait so that we get a feature that makes it better for all in the long run.

Post by: acr21 on February 06, 2014, 06:50:01 pm
I agree completely showtime. The example you have given is great but I believe they will allow us to change the skin of the boots separately so the boot color isn't the issue. If you replace the boot color option in your example with different models of boots like gaerne, fox, and alpinestars then it illustrates the issue we will run into with the way its set up currently. I think you helped clear it up a lot, thanks.

Is it really important to have a new boot model?
It's a fair amount of work for a modder to model, unwrap, texture, weight to the rig... To have a new boot that from replay cameras looks roughly the same shape as the old one.
Are there lots of boots modelers out there? Isn't it possible to achieve acceptable results with a new texture only?

Is it really important to have a new boot model?
It's a fair amount of work for a modder to model, unwrap, texture, weight to the rig... To have a new boot that from replay cameras looks roughly the same shape as the old one.
Are there lots of boots modelers out there? Isn't it possible to achieve acceptable results with a new texture only?


Just based off previous experience with motocross games such as Motocross Madness 2, MX vs ATV Unleashed, MX Simulator, etc the community really likes to mod everything and people will spend the time to model just about everything in great detail. It's obviously not the most important thing and I don't think its a make or break feature. It would just be a really great feature to have that kind of customization and I believe this would be the first MX game to get that right. Thanks.

There is a good amount of modelers in the MX community.  One thing you will find is how important models and gear are to the community, we love our customizations and if we can model 8 different boots that the whole community will use, as opposed to every single gear creator having to pick multiple boots for his gear.  I think you will see how much better that option is.  Especially think of this in terms of multiplayer,  if we can download a solid set of different boots for the game created by someone talented like gio, attacker, etc.. etc.., everyone will have those boots when they race online.  If we use the other option the only way to see that persons boots is if you have that exact set of gear downloaded to your computer... this will usually cause the new forum topic why cant I see so and so gear, this usually ends up with some smart arse saying well if you would have went and downloaded the 400mb thor gear from so and so you would have it.

easiest way to fix this.
example:
Here is a download for all the boots that everyone is using this year:
Download for boot pack includes all 2014 boots  download here

plus this will eliminate duplicates: many times because people want boot options they will make the same gear that someone else has made just cause they wanted different boots so like I said previously you end up with 10 people making 2014 thor gear just cause they wanted different boots.

easy way to fix this:
community makes a great set of 2014 thor gear and then puts up a link:
Download the 2014 thor gear pack that everyone will have for 2014 everyone has same gear, only now they can run with any of the boots they downloaded in the 2014 pack.

Problem solved

If you cant tell by now I love to simplify things, chaos causes confusion within the community, then comes the constant battling back and fourth, soon after you have nothing but a bunch of people causing constant problems.

Trust me when I say people in the mx community will put in the time to model and make incredible things, but first it has to be setup correctly and only the creators of the game can do that part, and I believe you guys are headed in the right direction.  From what I have seen you guys are communicating with the community pretty well, just don't forget that some of us were burned by another motocross game creator because he refused to listen to some of the suggestions that could have simplified his game immensely and saved himself a lot of trouble with community members and problems that now plague the game.

I'm Dylan22 on the mxs forum. I've been around for years. As far as I understand. In mx bikes you choose the boots seperately from your gear. So instead of releasing 10 different sets of the same gear just with different boots like we have to on sim. You just have one gear set and can change whatever colour you want the boots seperately in game.

I'd much rather see these creators work on making the game play well, instead of modelling stupid boots no one will really see anyway.

We are not talking about piboso do boots, what we are asking for is to make it possible to model new ones. Why would you not want that? If you ask me as much things as possible to model is a good thing. It's not something you have to do but it's nice to have it possible if you want to and it's nothing that harms the gameplay.

Hahaha guess I Can be a little passionate when it comes to motocross games.  This particular issue is one that I wanted very badly to be fixed in mx sim.  Gio and myself modeled and created a gear pack that had over 60 sets of gear in it and it was a nightmare for one reason.  We had to make each gear with almost 8 different sets of boots and it was a time consuming mess.  We had a whole set of thor gear that we put gearne, alpinestars, and fox boots with each set of thor gear and like I said it was a pain and even then someone was always asking did you make the gear with blue alpinestars?

So this is one of the reasons I feel its a huge deal to just separate the boots and then you don't have to worry about it.

Same goes with the helmet and goggles just wait til people start throwing a fit because their shoei helmet has spy goggles instead of Oakley's

We aren't asking for piboso to have to model said boots, the community can do that, just make it on option. 

Lastly for those that say well you never see the boots, some of us ride in 3rd person view and love being able to see my setup (makes me all sorts of happy when I see an awesome setup with my rider)

But don't worry good buddy (looks at motoboss) if you need some advocacy with track making items I will be ready to defend and debate.

Visuals are the least of my worry. Having a game that plays well is first on the list,  after we can worry about little things like boots :P
Still think people should be able to import their own models into the game though. for EVERYTHING. Just gives those who know how to model some play time. :D

I think you guys are missing the point of what the modelers and skinners are trying to get across... There not worried about the visuals right now ..There asking the creator to set up the rider model and bike model in a certain way so later on down the road there wont be problems ..Since the game is in very early stages now is the time to do it...

It´s better to try and build the game with these changes from the base, it´ll be a huge problem when the coding is in a further stage :)

I totally agree with showtime,having different options for boots, gloves, googles and helmets for the rider and wheels for the bike would be dope!
Also mx simulator online never worked right due the huge amount of skins combinations there where.
I as a modeler wouldnt mind having to properly weight my models to get them ingame.

I agree also, if they are working on X and we have suggestions on how X would be best implemented then would it not be best to take a little extra time to set X up the way that will work best for creators for the next 10 years?  I sure think so.

Also, it seems like we cant even change the rider model judging by this list:

Helmet + Goggles (model & texture)
Rider kit (texture)
Gloves (texture)
Boots (texture)
Neck Brace + Body Armour (model & texture)

I think that is a big mistake.

Also on the subject of real time weather and deformation... In the releases that include such things, will the rain be for visual effect or will it create mud type traction and deformation? Will it dry out if the rain stops? Sorry if all of this is redundant and has been answered I searched but didn't find an adequate reply.

Pretty sure (of course) there will be a look back button :P

On GP Bikes the track dries after a couple of hours so I think this will be the same in MX Bikes. At least, I hope the mud becomes hard (that's what she said :P ) after a while. But I don't think this will be integrated in the first version(s).

MX Bikes will support modding, so it will be possible to add any bike.


so it will be up to the modder to add engine and physical information in the model files?
i'm afraid this will lead to some very unpleasant situations..like why not making a 85cc bike with the same horsepower as a 450?
then people will start releasing factory bikes with factory datas, real or just made up to make the bike works better than the stock one..so goodbye realism, goodbye fun..

wouldn't it be better to have piboso releasing the 'official' bike infos, then the modders can work on 3d models and texture?
this way we don't need to wonder about unfair behaviour by some immature player?

i don't know i might be just over thinking, but coming from mx simulator i know this would have been the very first thing many in the community would have done, trying to cheat in every way possible having the possibility to hack engine data files..but hopefully this will be a much more mature and respectful community and all this won't be needed..

I think physics modding will be great. Don't see the problem with someone modeling a 50 and someone creating physics for it. And a 85 and a 125 stuff like that. Or what if piboso's stock bikes are slow. They can be stock, what if somebody creates slightly faster bikes and those are the factory Mod bikes that all the "pros" will race in organzed races. SOMETIMEs. Not all the time, the community can make something more people like than the Dev created, and that's why modding is so cool and I love when devs support it. Revon physics in MVA were 100x better than stock physics in that game.

the point is that since this is a simulator, it will simulate physics, as close to real life as possible.
and since this is the focal point of this software, i don't see why others should be allowed to tweak it.
because if that would be possible for sure it will lead to huge issues in the community and eventually to a total fail of it.
people will try to cheat as much as possible, will try to steal everything possible to be that 0.000000001% faster than anybody else, and it will start a war.
and when someone will release updated models with custom physics it will be a matter of minutes before it gets ripped and edited and re-released..

what's the point of having stock bikes and factory bikes?
i mean, if we had factory bikes, who would be racing stock bikes anymore?
there's nothing here that can prevent anyone to ride factory, so stock would be completely useless..

why stock bikes should be slow?
if they replicate real life counterparts than they won't be, so there won't be any reason to tweak them.

factory bikes for the pros?
who will be pro and who not?
who will decide?
i know already where this will lead..

rev physics for mva?
those were made to relive an old ARCADE game, trying to make it a bit more realistic, and some ways it was a success, but it was a complete fail on other sides: people who have waited for so long were disappointed, they disliked it and of course it got ripped and people started editing it at their own like..

there's the old saying that goes 'the more you give the more they want', and i'm sure this is what will happen if piboso give the community the freedom to mod more than the strict necessary

I have to agree gio, by all means make different models etc but as for modifying the bikes performance def not. Piboso should set a dyno for each cc class which we all use as a template if you like, factory and stock bikes would be a bit silly in game I feel. Yeh it would work on a single player game like a career mode on MVA or something but not on an online only sim. Just my opinion tho guys, nice to see cool ideas knocking around tho.

gio I can understand your concerns with cheating but I think you are overthinking it.  Mods can make a game 10x better than it would have been otherwise, imagine if jlv would have allowed even a small amount of modding we might have actually got a bike and rider preview in the menu because guys like attacker and others with the coding skill could have done it a lot quicker than JLV.  He'll look at what has been done with Skyrim, they not only made that game look amazing they almost successfully got multiplayer put in a game that didn't have it.

While I understand you concern for cheating have a little more faith in people, just because mx sim community has issues doesn't mean that needs to be the case here.  As long as we don't get the extreme sides ruining it for everyone, aka the people that get made to be mods and all of the sudden they are on a high horse, or the guys that have to be constantly knocking people just because, which if you ask me was a big problem on the mx sim forums certain people who I will not name had to constantly knock people instead of teach them.  Which brings me to the next group those that don't try to learn instead they are immature and demand everything and have to constantly be creating new topics for every little thing that pops into there 12yr old head.  If we can figure out a way to minimize these groups I think everything will be fine.

So lets see what we have to work with first and then hopefully the talented people will create great things and at the same time can help teach those that are willing to learn, all the while those getting things for free can enjoy it and be thankful.

I agree with ^.  I think that starting over from scratch with a new community will hopefully allow a fresh start for everyone.  One of the things that kills sim is that JLV is not interested in being the bad guy and gives people too many chances and doesn't really enforce rules.

I know my first course of action when this reaches public beta is to start working on some pitbike mods.  Might need some help with the physics side of it since I have no experience working on anything like that before.

Nobody will force you to install mods that you don't like. Install the ones YOU want to play with and have the game that YOU like.

It's as easy as that.

As far as cheating,

I'm on my phone gio so cannot address every issue. But why not? People like to ride slow bikes too. Why ride a 125 or 250 in sim when I have the 450? Like sayin why would I ride stock instead of Mod in this game? What if certain race series had different classes got the bikes since they're different? That's a reason to ride the slower bikes. You say why mod a simulation of real world physics? Nothing against the developers what if their physics suck? We can mod better ones. Just depends. And why NOT have mod bikes for the pro races. Anyone can be a pro they're just used in the pro series. In real life mod bikes are twice as fast as a stock bike. That's why we need them and they'd be fun. Not saying stock bikes are slow, but there not as fast as what a modded factory bike would be.

I agree with ^.  I think that starting over from scratch with a new community will hopefully allow a fresh start for everyone.  One of the things that kills sim is that JLV is not interested in being the bad guy and gives people too many chances and doesn't really enforce rules.

I know my first course of action when this reaches public beta is to start working on some pitbike mods.  Might need some help with the physics side of it since I have no experience working on anything like that before.


I can try to help.


People need to realize mods aren't always bad. Sure you may get the smart guy who makes a hack, but for every havk there's 100s of good mods. How did Counter strike come to be? Or just cause 2 a triple a title was modded to have a HUMUNGOUS online multiplayer mod. Stuff like that will be good.

i love mods and i probably would be one of the people who would like to see a pitbike with a 450cc engine, but that´s just because the point of a game is to have fun, and as piboso said there´s checks to prevent people from racing with different physics so we´re allright :)

If you think about it, a game is fun because there is a challenge to it. I know from experience, as soon as you use a cheat code in a game, it loses all its flare, because you just "saw the best it can be" so whats the incentive of playing more? The key to getting people hooked to a game is to always have them waiting for a tiny bit more, and as that is given, there is another small thingy just out of reach. That keeps a player into the game and excited for more.

Sure, physics modding will be fun, hell, I will love to do it, but of course there will be releases of a 1200cc 85 and all that, at that will also ruin it. Personally, if physic modding was to be there, Id suggest it is very limited, in a sense that it is basically adjust sliders within a given range for multiple parameters, maybe with a trade off between parameters, for example altering the torque curve, but not being able to just power = 9999 or something.

Don't get me wrong, I am all for modding, and I for one have been thinking countless hours how awesome it will be to mod MXS physics. Unfortunately, it will also ruin the experience, if it wasn't limited considerably.

ha! me overthinking?
go check the last three pages in the 'mx simulator replacement' thread..average mxsimulator forum's thread.
and we don't even got the game yet..it makes me want to give up already..

if it was for me they could even release the game with a user friendly tool to mod everything, i wouldn't care, i don't like to play dirty and i tend to act like a mature guy..problem is we're already reaching mxsimulator's low level of discussion, and this have to be stopped now or it will be too late.

i might be too negative, but i think being on a forum called 'mxsimulator' or 'mxbikes' doesn't make much difference for some people.
Title: Re: Questions
Post by: bearded4glory on February 11, 2014, 09:57:55 am
I really don't see what the problem is, the server will control what mods are acceptable.  My guess is that any "official" racing will be done with stock physics (or a predetermined mod) so it is really a non issue.  MX-B already has an advantage in terms of your concerns because there is no advanced stability setup (unless it is hidden in a configuration file somewhere I don't know about in GP Bikes).

Also, allowing us to mod the game allows us as a community and individual creators to do things we couldn't/can't do in sim like add pit bikes, 500s, etc.

In the end we are all sitting here arguing about a game that isn't even playable yet, lets wait and see what it is like when we get it.
Title: Re: Questions
Post by: giopanda on February 11, 2014, 11:16:07 am
yeah probably i didn't explain myself correctly.
as i said i'm 100% positive to modding, because it keeps games alive, (as i said in another thread richard burns rally is still banging after almost 13 years, and being a real pain in the butt to mod because it wasn't intended to), what i'm afraid is that people might get too far, but as being said, online racing will have rules enforcing so yes at the end it won't be much of a problem..

so back on topic..what could i ask?
...
...
...
oh got it!

how the first person views will work?
i read there are two..like a 'rider's eyes' one and 'gopro' style with different povs and fisheye?
or is one 'dynamic' view and one fixed?

seeing the mxgp game footage just released yesterday you can see the helmet cam stays pretty much parallel to the terrain while we see the bike 'swinging' left and right at the bottom of the screen, compared to mxsimulator where the camera position and angle are stricly bonded to the rider that is strictly bonded to the bike.
how will mx bikes handle this?

speaking of modding and how much i'll love it, wouldn't it be nice to have a real go pro style view in case it wasn't included in the game?
with exact same pov angle and fisheye and dirt buildup..

the the go-pro idea would be cool, altho im a 3rd person guy myself. Gio i recommend you check out the GP Bikes demo, Piboso stated that alot of MX Bikes could be compared to GP Bikes, the 1st person view has 2 modes on that aswell i believe. worth checking out tho just to see how awesome his physics are in terms of the "speed wobble" and the suspension movements. just an awesome game.

There's an option to adjust how far the camera angle leans with the bike.
We've got a gopro style camera for replays. It won't work as playable view though, because you can't see the bike.

First person now sounds very promising! I was always stuck to 3rd person because no game has done a first person view that I feel to be realistic. I can't stand the "chest-cam" in MXS. And to make it even worse your camera stays with the bike as giopanda explained.

Also, I think my previous question might have been overlooked. How will the rider return to the bike in the unfortunate event of a crash?

It was setup for replays. Basically you can set a place for the camera to be at and then set it at another place at a later point in the replay and then when you play it back the camera will travel from one point to the other.

That was the poorest description I've ever given.

Not sure about changing the actual rider animation, but I guess you can animate the textures.
Track objects will also not include model animation, just texture animations.
Not sure if you mean this, but there are joints just like in GP-bikes (http://gpbikes-mods.wikia.com/wiki/MountingPoints3D).

- No
- Add no, modify maybe.
- Not at the beginning. Could you please make an example of object that could be animated?
- The rider position can be adjusted. ATV will not be supported.
- Maybe
- Yes

A mix of spheres and boxes.

Post by: bearded4glory on February 14, 2014, 07:11:37 am
One thing that would be really useful would be objects that appear after a given amount of time that do not have collisions when they aren't visible but do when they are visible.  An example would be bales that block off the start straight for supercross tracks, this always bothered me in MXS because there are bales that don't have collisions.

Other objects that would be cool to animate:
Cars on a road next to a track
A train making its way past/through a track
Planes or birds flying through the sky

This is obviously a lower priority thing and could be added later once we have been up and running a little bit and get any little bugs ironed out but I think it would add a nice bit of realism that isn't currently possible.

* Able to add sounds to different areas of the track? Perhaps attach sounds to objects?
* Animated objects could include a flock of birds, ducks in pond etc
* Is it likely you guys will add adjustment capabilities to the external camera? This can really throw off how a game feels so was curious if there is any way to adjust.

Adding sounds to different areas of the tracks (objects) is confirmed awhile back.

How does cuts work in this game, are there some sort of gates that track makers have to put on their track?
Will there be particle effects like leaves in this game, if yes, will it be posible to make custom ones and add them to custom tracks?
Will objects change the sound of the bike? Example, riding through a metal tunnel.

Yes, that's what I hope too. In Mx Simulator you can't run in people like that, because they'll laugh off the track. I'd LOVE to see a simulator where you can actually battle with people.

I Agree, i also hope that you arent just Respawned back on the bike when you fall. Because it really takes away from the realism when you just teleport back on the bike and can fall and be back up and running in 3 seconds. It would be nice if you go down you have that NO! feeling you get instead of just being calm and collected about it because you scotty beams you back up on the bike.

what do you propose then? We run around looking for our bikes and franticly wiggle the controllers stick whilst tapping a or x to pick up? Ah shoot this bike isn't mine... Let me try this bike over here... I guess some things just do not work in games which is why they never get added.

Come on Gary, you know that would be funny as hell. Especially if you could have modified bikes, you could pick up a faster bike by "accident"

Title: Re: Questions
Post by: DD on February 18, 2014, 05:27:45 pm
I would love it if crashing was a big ordeal. Simply because it would promote clean racing. I have no issue with block passing and bumping into each other, my issue is when people constantly try to jump a larger rhythm and crash on it EVERY lap. I'm just like, "Yo, you realize that it's faster to not jump that than to crash every lap, right!?"
;D

I feel like running to your bike yourself and picking it up would be pretty difficult to implement for the dev team. I think an slightly easier solution could be if you crash, your rider can only fall so far from the bike (let's say 0-10 feet), and then it would just be an animation for the rider to stand up and run back to the bike. You could get really detailed with it and make crashes specific to steepness of the terrain you're on. The amount of time your rider stays on the ground before getting up can be related to how hard your rider hit the ground.

In my opinion, this would greatly improve online play. If there were real consequences to falling, it would make learning how to ride slow and smooth before going fast that much more important.

This sounds like it would take a while to code... I just have the ideas, not the ability to do it myself. :D

This makes me think there may be a hope I'm not saying your wrong, although the game is yet to be released so I don't see how you can be making all these accusations already.

Accusations?  You're off your rocker.  Assumptions at best, but safe ones since piboso now has 3 games all using the same net code. No reason to think the 4th would be any different since he's already mentioned it using the currently buggy net code.  His words not mine, so don't go off the deep end telling everyone how terrible of a person I am now.  Also not to be read as me saying he is incapable of fixing those bugs. I think that about covers my bases. Can't wait to see the spin someone is able to make out of this though...

Moto i think ill come in first even this race dont worry.


But Piboso or Snappe did say it would be available first release. But he did say dont expect 40 person gates. If i recall hearing somewhere him saying 11 players? Not sure. Odd number too but oh well

It's 14 players in Gp-bikes. Since Mx-bikes uses the same engine, it'll be the same for the first release if they won't update it.

How about a 14 player race with some of the most active people on the forums? Me, Rogers, Sandbiter, Mx181, Uollie, Gdubmx, and people like that? Heck maybe we could talk Snappe and Piboso to race with us  ;D

What I dont get is how you can have 121posts on a forum of a game that hasnt been released. I'd understand your postcount if piboso and snappe posted info about the game everyday...
Most of us get on this forum to see if any updates are posted or pics/videos, It's annoying having to go through your posts all the time.

Please moto28 and motorogers, chill with the posts or at least keep them on topic.
Title: Re: Questions
Post by: giopanda on March 09, 2014, 04:25:28 pm
Motorogers what you don't understand, or probably pretend to, i don't know, is that postcount doesn't matters at all.
Have you ever seen piboso post something not important? Or seen snappe spamming?
What you do is just cram all the topic with stupid nonsense, and as you said 40% of your posts is to defend yourself, meaning that at least another 40% is just plain stupid posts that leads people to attack you.
And as math is pretty clear, turns out that just 20% of your posts might be useful to the community, dragging your post count to around 20 posts. (Luckily most of your posts have been edited so you don't double post every time)
And as you said you're just spamming while waiting for the game to be released, and when it will be out you won't be here on the forums anymore, exactly when it will be needed to really discuss the game, because all we can do now is just speculate and dream about.
So at the end, all this just means that you are worth almost nothing to this community, so please try to control yourself and stop spamming.
And i'm not just writing to you of course..

Quick question:

What makes a user an advanced user? Are you going to have to prove your skills? Prior work? Maturity? Does it just come down to who you want to be advanced and not advanced?

I like the idea though, less goony things being made and gives people something to build up to.

"Advanced" means "with the needed skills". Modding will require a lot of knowledge, especially physics.

What i don't understand is why everyone is giving me a hard time because all i have done is posted things about The game, Some friendly conversation, and defending myself from peoples off topic posts. Which makes me have a higher post count and everyone gives me crap about it. So what my post count is high? I'm involved in the forums and post my thoughts and ideas on some topics that were thought to be dead but turned into a brainstorm for the game just based off of a post. I guarantee you that more than half my posts are about this game. The only reason i have such a high post count is because of people being completely hypocrite and telling me to "Stay on topic" when i have asked all my questions that i had on this thread and i thought i was done with it until people like you feel its relevant to give me there opinion of my post count number. Stay on topic please. If you do not like my post count number send me a Pm or something. Its people like this is why my post count it high. I apologize if you took any offense to anything i said but i just don't feel you have any right to tell me to "Keep it on topic" when most of my posts are.

I'm making it not fun? How so? Its because of people like you who post absolute nonsense that i reply to which makes me have a higher post count. If I'm the "Loud annoying guy" then your the little Punk who thinks he knows everything who gets into fights and gets his ass handed to him every time. Your post was completely irrelevant to post on this thread. I have been doing nothing but defending myself from people like you, Having friendly conversations, and posting my thoughts/Ideas for the game development. In fact, I guarantee you 80% of my posts are about the game. But people like you who just see the 20% that aren't feel its necessary To post irrelevant things about your thoughts about MY posts and telling me what I'm doing wrong. You might want to check yourself before you go telling other people what they are doing wrong, You're just as imperfect as us all.

Please

I've heard that GP-bikes has lots of crashes and bugs, will this be fixed in mx-bikes, and when?

I'd really like to know how to host official events, like the Sim Karting World Championship in Kart Racing Pro. Since EMF (European Mx Simulator Federation) would like to host official series for this game, if it's posible, and if we have the time for it. Since I couldn't find any information about how to host such events, i'd love to know it.

Hosting is pretty easy. There is no such thing as 'official' event, but you can make an event or championship of course. You need a good internet connection to host your dedicated server. You'll find everything you need once the game comes out. It's a .ini file (txt file) that you can edit as you wish (track, players, weather,...). 'Official' events are normally announced on the official forum, some of the GP Bikes events have 2 or more classes/lobbies for each race :D

Thanks for the reply. That sounds way easier than what I'm used to in Mx Simulator. Can you tell me how they pick the racing spots in GP bikes, since max 14 players are able to join a server at once, you need some sort of qualification to know who should be in the race, don't you?
How long do races normally take in GP bikes? In Mx Simulator (EMF) we don't have a qualifying race, we just have laptime qualifiers (http://mxsemf.com/races.php?op=showrace&id=173). I guess hosting qualifiers, practice, warmup lap, and races on one day will take very long, especcially 2 moto's of 25 minutes, for two classes.

I've read some sort of FAQ for GP bikes already, with servers commands etc, and it looks really simple to do, compared to Mx Simulator.

Since GP Bikes is a small community it's 'First-come, first-served'. Normally everyone that wants to participate can participate. If there are 2 classes we start with a quali/hotlap event to divide the players in both classes. Our events are most of the time: 30mn practice, 15mn quali and 50% (+-30mn race). The 2 lobbies are hosted at the same time, but by a different host :D

PS: 2 classes = fast riders and a bit slower riders, not 2 different bike classes ;) So 28 riders in total ;)

Sounds like we already have a racing federation in MXB! Thanks to everyone at EMF Sandbiter, hope you guys can do this!

I know, hope you can, but if not its cool :D

Question: Will there be servers that allow mods and servers that don't? Like Open servers, Mod servers, and stock servers? It might be more fair this way. Even thinking in the future for series and such, it might be unfair to have advanced players able to mod and some who arent able.

tanner if you have actually played GP Bikes the full version you would know about the servers.. yes you have different servers such as a "stock" and "mod" server.

tanner if you have actually played GP Bikes the full version you would know about the servers.. yes you have different servers such as a "stock" and "mod" server.


I am fine with the demo. Im not sure if im going to buy GP-Bikes or not. Its not a game i would take seriously, i just hop on for fun. Many people would think differently, but thats just me. Im not sure I want to BUY a game just so I can see features that MXB might possibly have.

Look into how Mx Simulator works with it's tracks and bikes, then you can get an understanding of basically how this will also work.

You can't compare this game with Mx Simulator. The two games are way different.

I'd also like to know if you've planned on some replica tracks in the official release?

im not comparing the game im comparing the way tracks and bikes are made, same as in mx simulator, roigs of rods, and a load of other open source moddable games like such.

The track in the first video (maybe second, not sure) videos was Budds Creek.

Hello,
Sorry if that question already asked.
Will the system of export for the track (from 3ds) be the same as in gpbikes(same plugin)?
Will the prefix be the same as in gpbikes?
Is there going to be new prefix?
By prefix i mean the quality or the grip of each surface.
Thank you.

There will be a new tool ( TerrainEd ) to generate a track from a heightmap, and new materials for the terrain.
3D objects ( for example walls ) are generated using the same prefixes.

I have a logitech controller with a switch to choose between Xinput and DirectInput, but when its on DirectInput the triggers dont work, and when i get them working they dont act as axis's. Just 100% or 0% effect, like a button. This isnt just with GP-Bikes, this is for all games. My original thought was that DirectInput doesnt support axis's, but clearly I am mistaken. Anyone care to relieve me of my confusion?

Not 100% sure if I already asked this, but here is my question.

Are track creators able to add displacement maps onto the track. I'm NOT talking about the actual heightmap, but I mean a special displacement map. That way we can have way more detail on our tracks, similar to MX vs. ATV Reflex.
Here's a good example:

It is possible to add a normal map to textures.
No effect on the physics, though.

If you need a heightmap I've got one for one. It's a fast paced SX track, doesn't have a huge rythem tbh, but still had most of the obstacels what an SX track needs. I've also gotten an AX track, which is small and has steep jumps.

Are there things you can alter/change with the physics just with settings? Like adjust how fast the bike rolls side to side. Or changing the neutral postion of the rider on the bike, etc.

I guess what im asking is, will we be able to alter basic things without modding? More preference then a matter of better or worse.

So there will be three different kind of weathers, sunny, cloudy and rainy. Will the rain actually affact the riding, i.e. getting water drops on your tear-offs so you have to keep pulling tear-offs for a clear sight and maybe take your goggles off (taking your goggles off should have some kind of anoying effect tho, maybe some little blur effect?) when you're out of tear-offs?

Of course you will see drops on the screen, what's the point of rain if nothing changes on your screen? Play the demo of GP Bikes in the rain and you can try tear offs in the rain ;)

In GP Bikes you have 5 tearoffs or so but in KRP you have unlimited tearoffs (probably a bug)

In the demo of Gp bikes you have unlimited too. Not sure how it would work out but it would be cool to choose the amount of them you put on. But i do realize there would be the people putting on 9999 and such.

Is there going to be tire pressure adjustments? Different models of tire that offer different grip? (Perhaps done by modders)

Will the sounds in the preview videos be close to the final sounds, with the popping and brake squeal constantly?

You recently mentioned adding an electric start system. Obviously that indicates the option of having a full manual clutch with stalling, as in gp-bikes. Is there going to be kick starting also, with an animation? If so, will it fire first kick?

Also, thought I'd ask, how confident/happy are you guys with the feeling of whips and scrubs? It was a real breakthrough when Mx simulator came out and had the most realistic whips of any game ever before. In the Mx game world, that is a big deal.

Sorry for all the questions, just stuff I'm curious of. Can not be more excited for the release of the alpha!

What do you think he's going to do? Release a game without telling anybody about it? Of course he's going to make a topic where we can put feedback about this first release. ;)

I guess this is a pretty good question where noone has even thought about yet.

We can setup our own servers, we can choose wether we want practice, qualifying, warmup lap etc etc. but what about supercross?
I'm sure there will be lots of sx tracks in this game if it's anything decent for sx tracks, and I really think there will be supercross seasons too.

Can we only choose practice, qualifying, warmup etc. or can we also choose from heat, semi, lcq, main events?
If not, can we mod this?

I'm sure they're thinking about this because on KRP you have more possibilities than GPB. Flying lap, pre-final and final for example ;)

After seeing some upcoming projects in the future it had me on the question of:

Will Piboso still have time For MXB?

I saw a upcoming project in 2015 that looked like it would be very time consuming and it made me wonder if piboso will still have time for Mx Bikes after it is released. I know that myself would like to see frequent updates and Piboso being active within the MXB community.

I havent owned any other Piboso games so im not sure how well he does manage his other games but i was just wondering if we would see even more progress Beyond the Release :D

How much will the first release cost?


20 euro ( around 29 US$ ).

You don't just buy a software, but also support development.


Is that for the Alpha or for the first FULL release?


First release. Otherwise there would be no development to support.

No. It costs 20€. You won't have to buy the game again in the future.

As PiBoSo said, it's to support game development.

The first alpha will only feature one bike and one track.
By purchasing a license you:
1) have access to multiplayer and modding
2) support development
3) have unlimited updates, including the "full" version

I was kidding about that, because Piboso said May 5 was a good date, and then he asked a question about it.

Ye me too, I've exams the week after the week of May 5, so I might be able to play a little bit, but not much I guess.

There are a 15 seconds 3D board and a screen helper.
Gate drop is random.
30 seconds were tried, but they were too long.

Ok great! I was more or less just curious about the board itself rather than the amount of time. Also agree that 30 secs would become annoying, good call.  What do you mean by a screen helper? Countdown prompt, or green and red lights or something?

i would assume a 30 sec board on your screen that turns at 5 secs and then gate will go anywhere between 5-0secs, only a guess

There are a 15 seconds 3D board and a screen helper.
Gate drop is random.
30 seconds were tried, but they were too long.


Ok great! I was more or less just curious about the board itself rather than the amount of time. Also agree that 30 secs would become annoying, good call.  What do you mean by a screen helper? Countdown prompt, or green and red lights or something?


Just a 2D version of the 3D board, to avoid visibility problems.

Not that much. Still exited, but I won't keep this forum on 24/7 anymore. I've been waiting since last year August since that was the first planned release date. Not sure what was going on that time tho, but I guess there happended something major since there changed some things in gpbikes etc I guess (new forum etc? idk.).

Hard question to answer though isn't it. I knew when I saw the first video that I'd been waiting for this game since the first motocross madness, a game that looked so crisp and realistic, and I know I'm not alone. Thats a long time I think we can wait a little longer as painful as it is being sat on the brink lol

It's the end of June for some guys here because they have exams at school, just like me. I've one 'free' week, then 2 weeks exams and then I can do whatever I want again. So that'll be 3 more weeks for me without Mx-bikes.

It was also stated that the release would be in Q1, well... you know.

Sorry for being a little bit of a twat right now, and I understand why the game won't be released, but it really is a kick in my balls for me. I've been waiting so long for a sick Motocross game since I don't enjoy Mx Simulator as much as some years back anymore. I'm just a little bit upset atm.

I can only speak for myself.

There is 168 hours in a week, I go to uni for 20 hours a week, sleep at least 8 a night 7 days a week, study at least twice as much as I work so 30 and spend at least 2 hours a day cleaning myself, eating dinner etc, an hour a day in travel, spend my weekends riding (10 x 2) and all the other fun stuff that comes with riding bikes like air filter, cleaning, maintance etc and lastly I spend atleast 10 hours a week just socialising with mates etc

168 (hours in a week) - (20 (time spent at uni) + (8 x 7(sleeping) + 30 (study)+ 14 (personal maintance) + 20 (irl bike stuff) + 10 (socialising) = 168 - 150 = 18

With all that stuff I still have 18 hours a week and them times don't allow for over time etc and extra days riding etc

I personally think my schedule is packed. I guarantee there is people here with more crammed schedules then me.

Man, some of you are being spoiled lil brats. I'm also disappointed to hear it might not release this month or as soon as we thought, but I'm not gonna cry about it. Saying that you are "done with this game" and stuff, I mean come on. Have any of you ever worked on something then had some unexpected issues? These dudes are only human. Also, you are pissed because it's not gonna release in the perfect time for you, right before your finals...boo hoo. Be prepared for a lot more disappointments in life. Be grateful a competent simulation developer is hard at work on a game based around something we all tremendously enjoy. We could be stuck with excite bike forever. Anyways, just ranting. Please don't take offense, just reflect on your behavior a bit maybe.

Piboso, most of us won't jump on the hate bandwagon. Keep up the good work and release when you feel comfortable with a product that you attach your name to.

Buy gp bikes, its not that fun like a good mx game, but when u understand how to ride fast and have players online to race its fun and on nordschleife u can

The human body can work on little hours like this but it is decreasing your performance significantly.
most people should be aiming to sleep around these times, although yes it does vary per person but to get around this will make you feel and perform much better.

I just got a little upset because of the release dates, it kinda felt like a joke yesterday. Every time we're close to the date it changes again, I understand why but this got me a little upset.
No need to hate on me, I agree with your post.


I am saying it to you yes, but others as well. I'm not hating on you, rather trying to help you see the behavior you were portraying. It was a little bratty. I know you're disappointed, just try to think before you type sometimes you know? Not much good comes out of making comments that are emotionally charged. You seem like a cool guy other then that. A little patience and a little respect go a long way.

since i try unity and c#  i can understand how hard it is to code a game
1 day u finish a lot then u stuck a week or more on a little stupid thing

and unity is realy for beginners and does not compare to what piboso have done

build a engine from sratch  :o :o :o
build the nicest racing bike game ever
and maybe the best mx game, we will see

ask "acr21" how difficult his simple but good mx sidecroller was :D

edit: idk if it was difficult for him, i just mean even a "simple" 2d game can be very frustrating and can make problems u never think about it

I'm sorry for that Cdub. I understand why you posted that. I guess I got a little angry and I shouldn't have been at all since I know how hard it is to script (I've gotten stuck with a simple '{' in one of my scripts for over 2 months). I also know how PiBoSo and Snappe are feeling, since I've wanting to release models and tracks for many games now, but I always see something I want to update before I actually finish it, and then people are begging me the whole time to release it.
Once again, I'm sorry for my attitude yesterday.

A car is way easier to make stabel that a 2 wheeler, and especially a 2 wheeler in the sand. Once I've time to learn some programming again I'll probably start with a car game too, just to get the hang of the physics etc.

Title: Re: Questions
Post by: JohnnyMac on May 10, 2014, 12:22:20 am
I have some concerns about online. What sort of safeguards are planned for multiplayer racing? Concerns for me include track cutting, time penalties, fast lap checks, and bike movements before gate drops. So far, from my experience MXS has done the best job and MXGP has done the worst. Let me explain my concerns:
1. Track cutting - how will this be handled? In mxs if you cut a corner, a time penalty will be added to your final time at end of race and your final position adjusted for penalties. (See fast lap times below for more.)

2. Fast Laps - Not sure if this game will keep records of fast laps on a track like mxs does or not. If so, like in MXS, I suggest disqualifying any lap where rider cut a corner. Just look to MXGP game where track cutting has allowed for laps 20-30 seconds quicker than possible.

3. Movement at the gate - MXS has failed on this. Just the other night a dumbass tipped his bike over at the gate pushing 2 other bikes including mine. I was penalized 15 seconds at start. MXS also allows bikes to back up at start gate further back then original start position. I would prefer something similar to MX vs ATV that allows us to time the gate, but not allow fricken bikes to be knocked over. MXS also used to allow players to jump the gate 5 seconds before gate drop allowing them to race ahead so this should be a concern as well.

Ive not seen this discussed in depth or explained and since no video of how online will work has been discussed either, I thought my frustrations with other games needed to be written.   
Title: Re: Questions
Post by: onlyonetone on May 10, 2014, 12:28:50 am
There will be fast laps. You make the track boundaries in the Tracked program that keep people from track cutting. I don't how how the penalty system will work though.

There are 3 cameras: 2 onboard and 1 external.


QUESTION REGARDING EXTERNAL CAMERA:
I am into radio control dirt bikes. I have the ability, with a usb device, to use my 3 channel radio to be used as a basic xy game controller (steering, throttle, brake). My question is regarding the modding of the camera. In mxsim, just for testing I can mess around and run the bike in 3rd person with my radio, but the camera is 3rd person and not realistic to radio control. Would your external camera be able to be placed at a position and pitch/yaw to track the bikes movement like a stationary replay camera?

I am doing a new TrackEd file and the absolute positions don't work anymore? Do we need to draw the centerline through pits and start lines now? And then use the actual long/lat coordinates instead of absolute?

Before the latest track tools the absolute worked fine


For the absolute settings, are you sure you selected Mx Bikes? You can choose KRP, GPB, WRS and MXB. Some games don't support settings which the other does.

Just saying the new version of tracked doesn't work, and only devs can fix it. As far as I can tell.

This has all been talked about on the forums already. The game won't be as hard as MXS, it neither would be like the MvA series. You can check out GP-Bikes (also a game of Piboso) and see how that game works, it explains a lot!

Can you perhaps give us an update on things your end as its been a while since we've heard anything good.I understand if your busy n all but hey it was worth a try. Either keep plowing away as we have full faith! Cheers

THANK YOU I JUST REMEMBERED.

Hey PiBoSo, someone mentioned that there would be assists. Would we be able to turn these off for a more competitive and realistic experience? I'm trying to get a feel for the level of realism and difficulty you are going for. I'm sure it wont be as hard as MX Sim, because MX sim is hard only for the sake of being hard. If this has been answered don't worry about it then. :P

You should check out the free demo of GP-bikes, that'll explain a lot for you.

I'm not trying to be a dick now, since most of you guys on skype think I am most of the time...
When it's done it's going to be released, they have no idea when it is at the moment, and they don't want to speculate any dates, because you know how that went in the past.
I'd rather see them working on the game that trying to do a good whip and make pictures from it tbh. A picture would be nice, but a release would be even better.

For the guys that want a discussion (not directed to Richard). I know making a picture doesn't take up a hell lot of time, but imagine they have to jump 20 times to make a good enough whip for a picture, then they need to get a good angle, and take the picture and then post it on the forums. With guys asking for new pictures on every page it'll soon be a whole week of actually taking pictures of you calculate it all, and I'd rather see a release one week earlier than having some pictures.
Title: Re: Questions
Post by: inTights on June 25, 2014, 05:46:43 am
It really doesn't take much time. Making a screenshot takes a fraction of a second and uploading it, is like 30sec. 7 pics would be ~2 minutes. Thats hardly taking a week off of the development. Its something you do before a get a coffee or stretch out.

Creating a hype or high expectations from a screenshot, which is very dangerous as it doesn't give any information about the handling, would be a legitimate reason to not post anything, but that it takes time to make a screenshot, is not.
Title: Re: Questions
Post by: Sandbiter on June 25, 2014, 11:28:12 am
Making the screenshot can be fast, if you can find the right angle/light. But you also need to get a good looking whip, and Piboso said that whipping is kinda hard in MXB, so what if he has to jump 20 times to get a decent whip?
Title: Re: Questions
Post by: inTights on June 25, 2014, 03:41:34 pm
given that he can reset the bike before the jump? ~200 seconds?

However, doing it in-game is kinda pointless anyway as it doesn't have any information on the handling and how the whip developed. You could "fake" such things easily in mx vs atv too, but that doesnt means its good, you know. To just show the animation and possible rider positions for various styles, it could be grabbed plainly from the animation program, which btw, would be a sweet BTS snippet.

Title: Re: Questions
Post by: acr21 on June 25, 2014, 05:11:07 pm
I really doubt there is a whip animation. I'm guessing you control the rider/bike lean and the physics determine the style of the whip.

1 whole page on whips! I will be just happy if its good progress when its released. Dont expect miracles in the first release but do expect updates in the future until its as near as perfect! I dont envy his task trying to please you lot! So many people will have so many opinions and at best you just have to go with the majority for room for improvements.

When it is released make sure you can do 5 clean laps before you have an opinion. If I had said my opinion on MX simulator in the first week it wouldn't of been too high. But with practice it becomes enjoyable. Remember this is a sim and therefore its not going to be easy.

Also the community will make this game grow by delivering great tracks and bikes.

I think we might need a good oval with a couple of jumps to practice to start with.

Support this mans fantastic skills and appreicate what he is bringing to us as no games company will be creating an MX sim in the near future. (Milestones effort doesnt count, if riding a bike was that easy I would be world champion)

I think it actually looks really nice but the physics as so much for the consoles. For arguments sake can you imagine if it handled similar to MX simulator. My god the public would go nuts in a bad way. RBR is still considered one of the best simulators of all time and especially when it comes to rallying. But that game didn't sell well because it was too realistic. Its hard to please everyone. Yeah I am a simulator type of guy but I do still enjoy playing arcade racing games. You respect it for what its ment to be. Having said that Milestones is too easy and therefore it borders on boring!

yeh, he's saying that you think MXGP by Milestone is bad, MvA Supercross is even worse. It may be "crap" but its still two wheels,nobbly tires and dirt. Just ties us over until MXB is released eh Piboso "wink wink"
Btw MvA Supercross is released septemeber 9th. And the PC version still hasnt got a release date. Is it possible we could be playing MXB before september??

Taken a big step back in my opinion. I know its ment to be arcadey and despite alot of comments I have read about Reflex been good physics I actually preferred Alives. I know its ment to be arcadey but at the end of the day if you over jump a jump by 20 feet and land on a up slope you wanna fall off or if you land at 90 degrees you should go flying. If its flatout all the way round that wont entertain a 5 year old! Cant see it changing a right lot between now and release in September. Maybe next years might be good! After all despite it been crap Milestones effort this year was alot better than last years. Anyway balls to them games! Lets play MX Bikes soon!

Fair point and good question. Honest answer I haven't a clue and to be honest I based my summary on the fact that I dont fall off enough and ride far too many clean laps. Also I have crap internet where I live so I cant race online with it but I certainly dont expect to be the fastest. Therefore I have been playing career mode and so far haven't found a challenge. Having said that I haven't played it for weeks as its abit boring!

Title: Re: Questions

The tga must be named correctly before converting to .pnt
For example, livery.tga packed to a .pnt file name of your choice, placed in MX Bikes\bikes\350xf\paints\

Title: Re: Questions

Title: Re: Questions
Post by: MXK_cdub85 on October 01, 2014, 04:01:48 am
what im not grasping is where to get a .pnt file from the templates or how to properly convert the .tga to a .pnt using paint ed. i'm obviously missing a step somewhere.

edit: I figured it out incase anyone was wondering.
1. save your psd as a .tga to documents<piboso<bikes<paints. (You manually add the bikes and paints folders)
2. Open PaintEd and go to Dir Read and search for the .tga in the documents folder you just made.
3.click to select your .tga that pops up
4. Name your skin whatever you want inside PaintEd; this is the in game name.
5. Hit pack and when it's done, place the new .pnt file into ProgramFiles<MxBikes<bikes<350xf<paints and voila! All done.
Now you can select it under paints in the garage and view it in game.

are you supposed to pack all the gear pieces in to one pack? I.e put rider boots gloves helmet whatever in one folder, select that one folder in painted and pack? I dont know just saw a gp bikes paint tut last night that said to do that..

yeh i agree with your point, there seems to be a feel of both wheels being locked to the same line of direction (if that makes sense) theres no feel of you know when you get cross rutted and your front end is in the rut and the rear is dragging out alongside the rut. im sure someone else mentioned it feels like GP Bikes in that sense. No powerslidey type behavior but im gonna put that all down to my shit controller setup and suspension setup. This game is amazing and i dont want it to come across as if  im slamming it because im really not.

Well....I'd have to agree just on the simple fact that on a bike in RL you don't have them on 1 control ;D


If I could rig up my real life bike so that both brakes were on 1 control would you consider it cheating?

Yes if the real life rules state that it's illegal.

Combined brakes AFAIK do not exist in races (neither road/track, nor mx).

They do exist in road bikes though (Honda CBS).

In the context of the game/simulator, if it was Piboso intention to provide combined braking, you'd have an option in the input settings.

Just my 2.5x10^0 cents.

MaX.

The way I see it, if you are using a gamepad such as a 360 controller(which is most people I believe) you are basically like someone trying to ride with a handicap. As far as I can tell it is almost impossible to get all the controls onto analog inputs on a gamepad. If an amputee came to a race with both his brakes on his front brake lever I don't think anyone would tell him he was cheating.

Reasoning is wrong from the start, because neither you nor me are invalid. We all use a pad (well, mostly), hence we are on par (with respect to each other).

GPB/MXB/KRP/WRS do not provide combined braking, because in reality you don't have it. A simple as that.

Then of course, you can use it and nobody will be able to detect you. No big deal to me. But still some sort of cheating in my own books.
Others' opinion can be different, of course.

MaX.

P.S.
What if I manage to script a keyboard macro to "auto-scrub" jumps ? Can I use the "amputee" argument ?

Title: Re: Questions
Post by: acr21 on October 06, 2014, 10:25:27 pm
So since we are all amputees none of us get rear brakes? Personally I think the best solution to this is to make it so we can put both brakes on one input in game, that way we all have the option. Right now we tell the rider through controller input to lean this far over and he tries his best to do it using piboso's steering logic. What is wrong with telling the rider to brake this much and he applies both brakes to attempt to brake that much?
Title: Re: Questions
Post by: HornetMaX on October 06, 2014, 11:09:41 pm
No in-game option = no go. Just my opinion.

Also, with a joypad and two hands, you definitely can use an independent rear brake. Unless you're an amputee for real, which I somehow doubt :)

My Suggestion is an ABS or anything Else for frontbrake. We can Set brake help in but its for both brakes. But when we can Choose about brake help for front OR rear brake it doesnt "cheat".

Post by: jbrandmx85 on October 07, 2014, 12:23:52 am
I think it should be able to be mapped onto one button. Its a game after all and some things are just too hard to really do in game. I can tell you right now as someone who rides a 450 IRL, the only way to do a real complete sim setuo for an mx game is to make a controller setup that has handlebars, shifter,levers, the whole works. Mx is a super complex sport to learn but even at that lots of goons out there can shift and use a clutch and all that without falling all over the track
Title: Re: Questions
Post by: BOBR6 84 on October 07, 2014, 01:24:19 am
I use X button as rear brake! (360 pad) left trigger is front brake.

At the moment im using the exact layout as gpbikes but that means rider lean l/r is on auto.

Left trigger- f brake
Right trigger- throttle
Left stick- l/r lean (bike lean)
Right stick forward- clutch
B button- gear up
Right bumper- gear down
X button- rear brake

Needs changing around I think for MXB.. as I suck at MXB so far il just ditch manual clutch and have rider lean F/B/L/R all on the right stick and maybe rear brake on the left bumper..

You do realize a button can somewhat act as analog with pibs options right? U can make it come on and release, even though its a button, how u want it to.


I do realize you can make the brakes come on gradually with the settings but this still doesn't give as much control as an analog control.

Well, controller setup is very personal, what works for one may not work for another.

If you fear unwanted interactions you could distribute the functions differently, e.g.

  Left stick = lean + rider f/b
  Right stick = rifer l/r + clutch/rear brake

It was just to show it is possible.

Hi,
You need to install the plugin for 3ds max in the plugin folder, you can download it at the webpage where you have download the game, after that make an export(in 3d) and choose the edf... format in the list below in the export window.

How in the heck do you change the track in an online race without it kicking everyone from the server and having to rejoin? I have to be missing something here. I click on admin, select the new track and then it kicks everyone, including me. Any help?


In theory you shouldn't be kicked out.
Just sent to bike choose page, while still connected, and then the track should be loaded.

Piboso, with the current build are we able to do an actual gate drop start in testing mode? If not could it be implemented in a forthcoming release? I think we could all benefit from it, would help with better starts plus it looks good in videos. Also another feature im not sure is possible is having the ability to assign hot keys/buttons to replay mode, that would awesome to control the slow mo without the need to keep bringing up the replay menu. That would be awesome! Really excited about beta 2 and the step toward supercross. Thanks for all your hard work and efforts in bringing us this title.

It is possible to practice with gates simply creating a local race and jumping to the start.
For replay controls, please click on the question mark in the bottom-left corner.

This may seem a bit daft, but I am wondering if there is any way to add spec maps or normal maps to bike/rider skins. I've tried at least a dozen methods and haven't had any luck. Just a use case example, I'm wanting to have the fork tubes produce a shinier look on a bike I've been working on. I've settled on texturing alone as of now, but it would be great to give that extra level of detail. I'd love to be able to add norms to the seat cover/grips etc. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Of course it is possible to add shaders at new models.
It is also possible to paint the specular and normal maps. Documentation coming as soon as possible.

Brilliant! So new models having the ability to add specs and norms is a given, are you also saying that the current models can have them added as well? Just trying to clarify as I feel silly for not being able to get them to work lol. I'm a pretty experienced Photoshop/Illustrator user, or so I thought!

Any way to add spec/normal maps to the stock models?
Title: Re: Questions
Post by: Snappe on January 30, 2015, 01:18:30 pm
You can make your own specular / reflection maps by including the tga in the pnt. Just add _s or _r to the filename.
For example, livery_s.tga, bike_parts_r.tga, etc...
Are normal maps on the bike needed?
Title: Re: Questions
Post by: MXK_cdub85 on January 30, 2015, 10:33:23 pm
Ya...would have never figured that out lol. Thanks Snappe you th man! Gonna mess around and see what I can come up with!

And I see use cases where textures alone don't always cut it. Seat cover, grip tape, grips etc. not super important I guess. I just enjoy details! As for the rider, you and I both know that normals make or break a skin.

Will the FOV limit of 90 be increased on the options screen to allow for higher FOV? I understand the settings file or whatever can be changed but its annoying this limit is even in place.

Even if you are used to crazy angles, please give a lower FOV a try.
It's much more realistic and immersive.
Title: Re: Questions
Post by: JohnnyMac on February 25, 2015, 02:04:09 am
Crazy angles? Wow, whatever I will use the stupid settings file if its that big of an issue. I was thinking around 100-110 just to get a better view of bike and a bit more peripheral for close racing of bikes in first person view. Btw, your engine doesn't think its crazy lol.

Sorry, didn't want to offend :-[
It's just that some other MX software by default uses a very high FOV, that many are now used to, and this is very annoying.
Please note that you are seeing the virtual world through a relatively small monitor.
Considering the distance of the eyes from the screen, a realistic FOV would probably be around 40, or even less.
Of course a compromise must be used to have some peripheral vision, but values above 90 completely destroy the immersion.
The ideal solution would be to use a triple screen setup, that MX Bikes supports.

And remember you don't need to register on the forum to buy the full game, I'd imagine there's a lot more license keys out there! But think - 880 members, if they each buy the game that's over 20 grand  :D

Many licenses were sold, but that's not really the point.
Until physics is improved and online is smoother, most users will not race.

Even Kart Racing Pro, that has 10 times the MX Bikes users, is not used much online.

Be nice to see more more growth in this community, especially regarding user content such as models and more tracks. I'm hoping beta 3 is enough to start building up a series for us to compete in. :) piboso, do you and snappe fancy racing online tonight? I know fats will :)

Maybe, no decision about Steam yet.
The platform shouldn't make a big difference anyway, as long as MX Bikes is properly advertised.
Title: Re: Questions

Steam should rise the sales a lot, there's ultra crap games that gets sales only because they are on steam, plus the early acces program really suits this game development path.

I made a thread on this last year, I know piboso would get shafted on his prices but it would be the only MX sim on there. Trouble is you'd still get the casual fans who'd want tracks and gear etc without creating themselves. The steam workshop would be pretty tho.This is why we need a decent well thought out,easy to use MX bike content site with friendly tutorials, skin packs,templates etc. I'd love to see this on steam.

I didn't even think about the steam workshop. TBH I have more fun on MX-Bikes than the new MVA game 0.o
I'm all for steam.

Not to mention steam boxes coming out soon and people could play MX-Bikes on a "console" =D

I'm having trouble noticing a difference between having Bump and Rebound at 0 or 15
Bike looks like it bottoms out after even some small jumps

Does Bump at 0 mean the suspension compresses quicker and at 15 it compresses slower?

Does Rebound at 0 mean quicker decompression and at 15 slower decompression?

Do they affect each other?
Title: Re: Questions
Post by: PizzaChet on April 03, 2015, 09:01:26 pm
Think of a shock with only a spring and no damping in either direction(like a pogo stick). It just bounces up and down like an old ambulance. Add compression damping and it's harder to compress it to bottoming (higher number=more resistance), add rebound damping and it won't spring back as fast(higher number=slower recovery to normal position). Too much compression and it bucks instead of absorbs bumps/impacts, too little and it bottoms too easy. Too much rebound and your tire won't follow the terrain, too little and you bounce back up in the air like a pogo stick. I adjust for balance/rideability. Hope this helps.  ;)

I really wish I could play!! I don't have a PC that can run the game right now. It's not that the game is super demanding, it's just that I have a really shit laptop haha.
HOPEFULLY I will have finished my build soon, so I can get back online with yall and shred ;)
