    Yep! :) im studying a way to make rear view mirrors work properly without losing performances. I am currently evaluating several alternatives for it. I focused on optimizing graphics because the AI is quite resource intensive, and to make it work and mantain a high framerate I had to come up with several workarounds, which luckily players can hardly notice!
    But I guess with a bit of study I’ll overcome this new challenge ;)

    I’ve found several bugs at China. The ‘floating’ bug is at all the tracks. Hope you can fix them!

    There actually is a bug, but it’s not what you think :)
    The actual bug is with the tyre radar: it doesn’t show up correctly tyre wear.
    Your tyres are actually worn to the limit, as I can see you are using the red ones (plus soft) or the magenta ones, which last between 1-3 laps when race length is 5 laps :)

    That makes sense! I never thought about that! Then I might always drive with the hard tyres ;)

    Or better, you can pit when tires start to lose grip :)
    Anyway, it looks like a bug that can happen from time to time, but in 90% of the cases is not happening to me. I will get a deeper look to see when it pops out :)

    I usually do 3 lap races but today I tried a few 20 Lap races and having to pit for new tires is fun cause it adds more depth to it

    Yes, increasing the laps counts makes strategy more important... and you have to keep concentration high if you don’t want to get damage or penalties :)

    :D:D:D:D:D I noticed that the game is getting a good amount of visibility, lot of youtube gameplays from youtubers and a decent amount of downloads. On which Country you noticed it reached the top in racing chart?

    Hi!!
    It’s a great game, really! You did a good job, it’s obvious that you pity a lot of effort onto it. I know that it has been requested before, but is controller/mfi suport coming?
    Also, are you planning on an Apple TV release?
    Thanks in advance!

    Happy bday to you then :) Really impressing, US market is one of the most difficult (if not the most difficult in absolute) to score in. Amazing news :)

    Hello Josumart! Thanks for your kind words. MFI currently is not supported, but hey, I’m receiving a lot of requests about it, so I guess it’s time to go on amazon and get one, in order to start its implementation! :)
    Concerning Apple TV, at the moment is something I didn’t even consider, i will study a bit the situation, n iorder to figure out time and resources I’ll have to invest to get the thing working.
    And most of all- please guys-if you didn’t yet, take a minute to rate and review the game on AppStore. That is simply the fastest way to get the game higher on charts, and allows me to invest more resources and time in the next updates. Plus, if you will, you all can make a wish list of features you would like to see in the next update! :)

    I tried to rate the game but I’m thinking this has to do with me using a promo code so the App Store says “you must own this product to review it”. I hope I’m able to rate it sometime if the App Store lets me. Also my friend told me yesterday that he’s still playing and that he really likes it

    Add my voice as well to mfi support! I think it’ll bring a new wave of interest since there’s a group of iOS gamers who like to only game using mfi controllers - apples support of mfi makes it easier to implement controller support as well as far as I am aware

    I see your point, guys! Just purchased one of these MFI controllers, will try to code it into the game as soon as possible, together with a bunch of graphics improvements I am already working on :)
