KarBOOM 1.1 is done!

Indie car-combat party game KarBOOM has finally been updated, boasting new improvements as well as a bunch of bug fixes.

At the request of fans, the player limit has been increased from 8 to 12 players, with up to 8 controllers (XBox 360, PS3/4, Wiimote, Logitech, whatever works with the player's OS) plus 4 players on keyboards.

 AI has been significantly improved, and new difficulties have been added to ease players into the game, as well as to give more experienced players or teams of players a greater challenge.

3 new skins are available as well, and players can pick the same colour to form teams in Showdown and Klassic modes. With 8 different skins, this means up to 8 players on a single team, though that'd likely make for a one-sided game given the 12-player cap.

It only needs DirectX 9. Which version is giving you trouble? If you don't mind, could you please try KarBOOM 0.2.4 and tell me if that gives you any trouble? It might help me narrow it down and get rid of the problem.

@CecilFF4fan: End-User Runtimes are what you'd normally want, but I don't think that's the issue -- what brand is your graphics card (nVidia? AMD/ATI? Intel?)?

@HUNTERLOL: Thanks for the info. I'll try to change things for the next version so that it's more like the old version in terms of some rendering techniques.

Just tried it, thanks to the top100 list. Always loved those games with tiny cars and top view. Even at this early state, feels great. The only thing that felt wrong to me was that the cars take too much time to turn, like they're in mud or something. Do you have plans to make the turning faster? I think it would make the game more fun, at least for me. :P

Keep it up, great... little game so far. ;)

Ah nevermind, i'm stupid. I had stuff running in the background and probably this was the reason the turning felt so wrong to me. Bad timing. Just played again and it was ten times better.

I'm glad you like it :) In case you haven't tried it yet -- use the handbrake as you turn if you want to tighten your turning circle more. I've replied to your other comment below.
