Change Log TORCS version 1.3.7 "documented" released

TORCS version 1.3.7 "documented" is available for download. First I would like to thank the contributors which helped with patches, bug reports and feedback, especially Wolf-Dieter Beelitz for our lengthy suspension discussion.

The most important changes in version 1.3.7 are the much improved api documentation (available as separate tarball), improved handling of configuration files, improvements in the racing rules, blacklisting of input device buttons, improvements in the suspension code and as usual bugfixes and code cleanups.

Downloads

Changes since 1.3.6

  • Added missing pictures for Doxygen generated documentation (Bernhard).
  • Fixed all Doxygen (version 1.8.2) warnings (Bernhard).
  • Adjusted Doxygen configuration (Bernhard).
  • Added architecture overview to documentation (Bernhard).
  • Updated documentation in params.cpp (Bernhard).
  • Improved some currently unused functions in params.cpp (Bernhard).
  • params.cpp cleanup (Bernhard).
  • Restructured/improved robottools documentation (Bernhard).
  • Improved documentation of interfaces (track, graphic, robot, simu) (Bernhard).
  • Improved pointer checking in RmLoadingScreenSetText (Bernhard).
  • Improved race manager API documentation (Bernhard).
  • Added RmGetCategoryName to race manager API, as the name suggests (Bernhard).
  • Removed obsolete file confscreens.h (Bernhard).
  • Enabled documentation client side (Javascript) search engine (Bernhard).
  • Improved ReApplyRaceTimePenalties for cases where drivers did not complete a single lap or the car has been wrecked (Bernhard).
  • Removed some outdated files from human driver (Bernhard).
  • TORCS configuration and result files go now to correct place on Windows, e.g. to AppData/Local/torcs on Windows 7 (Bernhard).
  • Result saving creates directory if not available, matters when creating custom racemanagers or running custom batches with -r (Bernhard).
  • Improved -r on Windows, paths containing backslashes ('\') are now working (Bernhard).
  • Added ShFolder.lib to VS 6 project files (required for SHGetFolderPath). For VS 6 builds you will need to install the Windows Server 2003 February Edition CORE SDK (the last one which worked with VS 6) and set the lib and include path in the VS 6 options (Bernhard).
  • Fixed some gcc 4.8.1 warnings (Bernhard).
  • Disabled penalties after race finish, reported by MarkP (MarkP, Bernhard).
  • Added new options to trackgen for testing, see -i, -o (Bernhard).
  • Added a test suite to generate a bulk of tracks ("test" directory) (Bernhard).
  • Added blacklisting of button events in player preferences, needed to set up input devices which fire button and axis events on analogue buttons, e.g. L2/R2 of playstation 4 controllers. Add in the drivers section of preferences.xml e.g. <attstr name="blacklisted events" val="BTN7-0,BTN8-0"/> (Bernhard).
  • Improved wheel velocity calculation (Bernhard).
  • Improved suspension code to catch damping spikes in extreme conditions and setups, for TRB (Wolf-Dieter, Bernhard).
  • Added comments in susp.cpp (Bernhard).
  • Ensure that the third element just produces positive forces (Wolf-Dieter, Bernhard).


Enjoy, Bernhard

Change Log TORCS version 1.3.4 released

TORCS version 1.3.4 is available for download. The most important changes are reworked tracks (e-track-3, wheel-1 and dirt-2 totally reworked, check those out, loads of new textures) and toolchain improvements (many fixes and ability to create racelines). Additionally many tracks got improvements, new racing rules have been added, timewarp mode goes now up to 128 times real time, running TORCS under Valgrind is directly supported and many little things have been fixed/improved. Hit Read More below to review the full set of changes.

Although it is called 1.3.4 it is a big release, so if you like TORCS you should get it (the version just denotes internal module compatibility). Thanks to the people which helped with bug reports/patches, these are Paletta, Dan Nace and Greg Duncan. Thanks to Steven Skiena for the permission to include stripe into the Windows installer.

If you are interested in the list with the available packages or the changelog hit the Read More link below. In case you run into trouble have a look into the FAQ, there is as well a section about how you should report a problem. If you like TORCS and think you can write a better AI meet us here.

I hope you will enjoy this release.

Bernhard
