Hello everyone!

Please, somebody can help me about ... "How to make a pseudo 3D racing game"?

Somebody already make something  like this before?
I mean... Somebody already make some Stencyl game like this before? Is it possible to make it in Stencyl?

I read about this type of pseudo 3D racing game in these following pages (wich pages are very interesting):

Its definitely doable!  I worked on an "Outrun" style engine before.  It was one of my first projects.  I was still new when making it.  How good are you with stencyl?

Will do. From what I remember it wasn't a particularly great example but does prove it can be done.

Recreate that in flash OK, there is step by step. But I don´t understand how can I to recreate these effects into Stencyl.

I hope somebody can help me or indicate a kit or game on Stencyl Forge... maybe a link with similar example into Stencyl.

I am trying to modify a 3d game example from Stencyl Forge that there is a little trees in it. Maybe if I put road lines wich use same behavior from trees be possible to recreate these flash effects.

Yeah I'm trying to make a 3D extension.
There is no racing game in the pipeline. And you have to wait before Stencyl 3.5 becomes final if you want to work with the extension.

Hello everyone!

I found this : http://www.stencyl.com/game/play/17027
from forum: http://community.stencyl.com/index.php/topic,26285.new.html#new
Diamond ou mine race, where can I find it?

This is very simple and works fine: straight road, curves, etc...

I was looking for it in Stencyl Forge but I can´t find it.

You can't rely on the Forge as it has been discontinued. Anything that is there may not work.

The thread you linked to is really old, so the user may not even be around anymore.

Wait to see what squeeb comes back with. I could see mdotedot's 3D extension being useful depending how to approach the problem.
