Multiple Head to Head!
Thanks to   Xuzz , who enhanced my replay routine, it is now possible to view more than 2 players simultaneously!

Examples:
 rachman! vs. 4 others
 Kristopher vs. 6 others
 Shane vs. 7 others

Additionally, the Head-to-Head links will no longer become invalid after making some games secret - now the page displays normally, just hiding the secret items.

Another improvement suggested by Xuzz is displaying links to other commented games in the "Related" section. This helps finding older comments for HoF games replaced by later submissions.
Vega: Oh boy... we're gonna have fun with this

Small screen version of the website
Releasing the iPhone version motivated me to implement the "mobile" version of the BoD website (finally!). It is not much smaller by data transfer, but its layout is better suited for small screens. This was done by replacing the left column navigation with combo boxes, using smaller images and omitting some information.
The website automatically recognizes Blazer and iPhone/iPod Safari as mobile browsers. You can also switch between these versions using the new icons (see the top right corner): =mobile =regular

Bike or Die 2.0d - Meet the biker girl!
What's new in version 2.0d:

  • supports 320x480 in Sony Clie
  • "Next Level" tells you to complete a level before going further instead of just ignoring you
  • background music is stopped when a "foreign" window appears on the screen (eg. incoming call on treo)
  • biker girl character
    (see: menu -> options -> bike)


    Download Bike or Die version 2.0d
  • Mr.pickle.: hmm,I dont really want to try to ban him or anything but...I still dont know,as I said I belive he is translating from chinese, perhaps someone could translate boneses post there and make it chinese so carl could understand? or perhaps some one could suggest some better translating site....or maby I am wrong all together!

    Bike or Die v1.6 - Gravity Fun!
    This is just a small update, introducing the new gravity options suggested by Cody (Thanks!)
    See the video!

    Download Bike or Die v1.6

    I made a small levelpack  Gravity Fun as a demonstration - you are welcome to create more gravity-bending levels using the new Bike or Design v1.4

    Hall of Fame News
     BikeForce has been added to the Hall of Fame. This means 13 new gold medals and numerous opportunities to outrun your competitors!

    BikeForce looks best in Bike or Die 2 but it is also playable in the old Bike or Die v1.x.

    Do you prefer freestyle over time trial racing? The new competition has just started:  Final Frontier "To boldly go where no one has gone before..." - the goal is to reach seemingly inaccessible location in some level.
    More about Freestyle
    Kristopher: PiNerd, isn't it good enough by now?
    Were there any major changes to make?

    A small update + Spanish translation
    I fixed some bugs:
  • Holding the button assigned to "restart level" no longer restarts the level continuously (which breaks your stats)
  • Didn't ask before quitting even if the option was enabled (Control Options)
  • (Not really a bug) by using more flexible memory management the game also works on devices having much smaller dynamic memory heap (e.g. Zire 71)

    Download Bike or Die 2.0c

    Thanks to   Ricardo there is now a Spanish version of Bike or Die 2!
    Download Spanish translation
  • PiNerd: Hey Sz, just a few things to suggest (really little). A founction sortcut for replay the best game. I edited it to be Menu> E but that won't work if I upgrade (I'll have to do it again). Also, why not release a list of all of the messages in BoD so sad people can put the into Google translator and we can have multilingual BoD. Even possibly include all of the languages into one copy of the game. also, I copied Cody's Levels 2 into my internal memory but the game deleted it instead. I'm not sure how much space there was on the PalmCard, but it may have not had enough roon.

    Finally, the new website is ready, bringing a lot of long awaited features:
  • Search (see find.php?fp=search)
  • Completely new  Freestyle
  • Reworked page design
  • More convenient private messaging (and you can see your sent messages too)

  • and more!

    Many of these improvements are your  Ideas - thanks!
  • Xuzz: And You Qi was here on the second...we have a lot of lurkers it seems...

    Improving the website
    As you may have noticed, there are 2 new elements in the player profile pages - rank distribution chart and small green/red level rank charts. (Both these ideas come from Ibanez - thanks!)


    This is the first of many planned improvements i'm going to implement before releasing BoD v2 (the most important ones are the search facility and Freestyle competition revival)

    Stay tuned
    Cody: How come my #5 game is considered top 10 but not top 5?

    Coming Soon: Arcade Reality
    This is the game that was supposed to be released at least 2 months ago... Now it is almost ready (expected release date - next week) and there is also a youtube video for your enjoyment

    Arcade Reality homepage

    See it on YouTube
    PiNerd: I'm buying a treo 680 arctic tonight. Then I will wait a while to buy arcade reality but I can't wait - and video jigsaw will work too. Ohh goodie! I'm not gonna use it as a phone though so that Zentongal thing won't work.

    In arcade reality can you record you games? That would make it for me!

    3D Mines released
    At last, the new game from Toyspring! This is not the famous ever-late game, which was promised months ago, but I just thought I should release anything this year to save my dignity
    3D Mines Homepage
    Sz: thank you

    3D Mines is almost completely ARM code while BoD v1.x is m68k code with a bit of ARM code for performance critical fragments - this is the reason why it is not as fast as it could be (but on the other hand, it works on the old palm devices while 3D mines is just for palm os 5).

    BoD v2.0 is like 3D Mines - faster and os 5 only (all those graphics improvements are not possible on older devices anyway).

    and yes, i'm going to make a new version of 3D Mines soon, with 16 bit graphics (which makes nice backgrounds without dithering) and more shapes. but the game will remain mostly the same, it is just a simple minesweeper

    Moving to a new server
    My website is moving to a new server - I will have to disable the submission for a while to ensure the database consistency. Sorry for inconvenience!

    If my understanding of the DNS is correct, the new IP should work within one hour

    [edit: if you are reading this, you are already accessing the new server - so you can disregard this news!]
    Cody: The new server messes up the pictures in the levels.

    Bike or Die v1.5 introduces several new features in level design, gameplay and the user experience:

  • zoom out for a wider view
  • and more!

    Download: BikeOrDie v1.5



    Along with the release of v1.5, the new levelpack has been added to the online competition.
    Play  Supernatural, get know the mindbending portals and the treacherous sticky grounds!

    Bike or Design v1.3 is now officially released
    The application itself was not changed, but i added some documentation about new features, especially portals (included in the package or you can read it online here).


    UPDATE: the new version 1.3b fixes a bug in loading old levelpacks: depending on the circumstances it could change the regular checkpoint and obstacles into "dynamic" ones (in other words, the additional numeric attribute in these objects was not always zero).
    Spence: i know its been there for weeks...

    Bike or Die v1.5a (bugfix release)
    Changes:
  • Diagonal portals (eg. Hall of Mirrors Time Trial) crashed (some?) color devices when color was disabled
  • Some sound effect stayed active when disabled in the system preferences
  • Fixed the probable cause of the "Chunk overlocked" bug

    Download the new version here: BikeOrDie-1.5a.zip

    Head to Head
    This feature allows you to replay two recordings simultaneously.
    It looks like two player were chasing one another in a direct race. This is not only amusing, you can also utilise this feature to improve your skills by finding places where your competitors outrun you.

    Here is how use it:

    1. Go to the Hall of Fame listing for a level, or "Games on-line" in the player's profile

    2. Click "Head to Head" in Tools (upper right corner)

    3. Select two public recordings using checkboxes

    4. Click "Show Head to Head"

    Note: You can navigate between pages while selecting the recordings (in step 3), and also between Hall of Fame and games on-line.

    And here is the "Head to Head" example
    mike flips: that would be fun to watch. And yes Henoch, the time on all replays not just H2H would be pretty useful for people. I remember when I used to try and improve my slower times i had my watch out and i was trying to count how long it took the faster times to get to certain points in the level

    3 Years on Bike!
    "Bike or Die!" is 3 years old!

    See how the Hall of Fame evolved during that time:
    Part 1 (2004-2005) Part 2 (2005-2006) Part 3 (2006-2007)

    Congratulations to everyone who appeared in top 50 this year! (I didn't make it, my best rank was 54 )

    And later this week I'm going to announce my new plans for the further development. (In short: this is going to be the best game ever )
    Mr.pickle.: pickle has the last word!!!! lol

    RSS
    Each forum thread has now the RSS link so you can track comments and threads easily.

    What is RSS?
    PMD: SZ, great job on adding RSS. It looks great in both my.yahoo and google.

    Bike or Die v1.5 (release candidate) is here!
    everyone knows what new features can be expected in this version (see  3 Years on Bike!), so just click here and download:
    BikeOrDie-1.5test1.zip
    (there is a little "v15 testpack" in the package, containing several simple v1.5 levels so you can start learning new tricks)
    please report all bugs you can find

    but that's not everything - there is also a brand new level editor able to create portals and sticky surfaces:
    BikeOrDesign-1.3.prc
    (later i will make some documentation on portals, this is the most complicated level element that not always works as one might expect - for now just learn from experimentation and the included v15 testpack )
    Dags: Well done Sz - you've taken BoD to the next level - loving all the new stuff. Congrats!! 3 Cheers for Sz

    "Arcade Reality" released!
    Finally, the game is ready!
    Let's celebrate - I'm going to give away 10 free registration codes for the top 10 "Bike or Die!" players (you will receive the instructions in private messages).

    But there is more: "Arcade Reality" contains a hidden "Bike or Die"-related game. The first person who discovers how to enable this game will get another free registration. We all love "easter eggs", don't we?
    (i'm announcing this "competition" only on this forum - it is meant for active "BoD" players)

    Arcade Reality Homepage
    Rock Rider: I was absolutely amazed when I played the demo for the first time. GREAT JOB Sz! I bought a Nintendo Wii recently, AR reminds me a lot of that type of interactive game-play.

    Everyone I've showed so far is equally amazed, I'm sure this game will make it big!
