New Graphics Engine to Power Next SuperTuxKart Release


From OMG! Ubuntu!:
It’s hoped that replacing the Irrlicht rendering engine – which has been under the bonnet of the open-source racer since its 0.7 release back in 2010, and saw numerous improvements as part of last year’s Google Summer of Code – will help fend off criticism of poor visual performance.

Looking to build upon the work of previous releases, a new developer has ‘started to write a new engine to allow new effects and more complex tracks,’ writes Jean-Manuel Clémençon, the lead graphics artist for the game on the official project blog.
