Even the built-in Skill Games, which profoundly fiddle with the bike mechanics, were all built using the remarkably sophisticated editor.

There'll be feeds for the most popular, most recent and Red lynx's own picks of the work, amongst others.

Particularly helpful in multiplayer, where matches will flit between user generated levels on a round by round basis.

Most of the objects can be colorized with full range color picker (not just pre-selected color palette).
Some of the objects like that metal pipe contains two colors, main and secondary.
In that case main color is for paint and secondary is for rust parts.

We all thought the creativity in TrialsHD's custom tracks was beyond comprehension sometimes, but I don't think there has been a word yet invented that can describe the creativity that we will all see come this fall and years to come. I'm so excited I don't know what to do. Gears of War 3 and AC: Revelations just got put on the back burner, pun intended ho!

Great job RedLynx, you're the type of gaming studio the rest of the industry needs to aspire to be like. Truly the best work!

The one thing that I'm looking forward to the most in the new editor is the increased draw distance.
Also, the multiplayer reminds me of Excite Bike, which is awesome. I'm betting one of the mp tracks will be an homage to that game.

Are you out of your mind? Graphics are very nice, better than HD and the game is apparently much improved too, I would be perfectly happy if there wasn't a single feature more than what we know, and we don't know all.

Also as jook mentioned, graphics don't make a game, gameplay does.

The Chopper and jook speak it true and 1 bit trip was as clear a way as any as saying the game mechanic on it's own was rock solid.

However...

Let's not pretend jaws weren't dropped when you saw it running at 60fps with some of the beautiful graphics in the backround. http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_e_biggrin.gif
The bit that did it for me was seeing the lake shimmering in the sunset way, way, WAY below the bike in one of the clips. http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_cool.gif

There was a thread a while ago where I highlighted some of the other disciplines of Moto and one was Trails riding.
Which is where an interpid biker or two take to the landscape and deliberately cut a new trail through forests and mountains and untraveled routes to blaze a trail for a bike to see where they can go and what the landscape can throw at them and their bike.

I think I said at the time that I'd love to see a Trials game that had the player cast into an outdoor landscape where the you could just take the bike into the great outdoors and enjoy the scenery as you also see how well and fast you can tackle it.

I think we can safely say that's going to happen. http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_e_biggrin.gif

It's like Dirt 3 which has great rallying at it's core but the graphics kept distracting me because they were so stunning in some places and it made watching a replay that much more enjoyable. Forza 4 looks to have that too.
Neither game will ever grab me like Trials has though.

Never underestimate the power of great graphics to make a good game a truly great and unforgettable one.
We may be TrialsHD addicts but we shall not be mourning the loss of the warehouse background too much I think. http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_e_wink.gif

Yeah I thought the sound was...off. I also noticed there was a lack of sounds/music while watching the single player footage. I'm not even sure if there was music in Trials HD while you were playing, so not sure if it matters!

Ive been watchin those videos again and again tryin to soak it in. One thing i noticed, it seems to me as if the bike reacts more 'forgiving' to the physics, kind of like the acceleration has more leeway after landing. I dont know, maybe its just me but i certainly hope thats not the case.Ditto, it's not just you then I guess. However, this game is going to completely consume my life. Amazing, props RedLynx.

None of the Trials HD track was over 20kb. (DLC's included)
Most of the original tracks was around 10kb.

In HD we "exploited" xbla profile storage which was if I remember correctly 64kb for each gamertag per game and user tracks was shared through those 7 8kb slots.

But track filesize/amount doesn't matter anymore because Track Central Hub.

User created HD tracks were up to 8kb of game data. Xbox dashboard shows 80-90kb for each track, because the dashboard file has lots of extra Microsoft stuff inside (for example the graphics icon to show in the Xbox dashboard). We haven't yet stated how large the Evo track files will be, but as Sipe already said, track size doesn't matter that much now as we have the track central. We aim to have considerably higher object limits in the new game. We are still tuning up everything and optimizing stuff to allow you to create as complex tracks as possible.

It feels a bit mean sprited to be critical of Evo when it is so obviously going to blow us all away but RedLynx are nothing if not cunning and wise in taking on board suggestions from Trials fans to make Evo such a mouthwatering prospect already as well as adding their own unique brilliance and gaming nouse to make it as good as they can.

So it is with that in mind that I suggest the following.

The comments about the bike audio are correct IMO.
It sounds a bit weedy and could benefit from a more full throated and high fidelity roar.

The oter thing I would add is a more personal view that the trees seen in pics and the footage so far in the background seem a bit sparse and a touch unrealistic. This may just be a function of the maps/tracks seen so far but they would benefit from a greater density and a touch more variation. This is an aesthetic matter and a mere detail really but one of the biggest features of Evo is that it takes the bike from the warehouse into the big wide world so the more realistic the landscape the better, and the lakes and rivers that have been on view so far have been marvellous.

The bike audio is the more serious issue as the engine noise is ALWAYS heard by the player so tweaking to just the right noise would pay big dividends but it's harder to define just what the right noise really is without a great deal of trial and error I would imagine.

Just thought those two things were worth highlighting and nothing will stop me from buying Evo anyway as it looks superb. http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_e_biggrin.gif

engine noise is not really a issue in my opinion,if you listen closely i think it sounds great especially after the throttle you can here a kind of authentic sort of popping idling.....beautiful http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_razz.gif maybe we are missing the fact that we can manipulate the bike sound ourselves and what you are hearing is a default setting http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_e_biggrin.gif now THAT would be nice! also staying with sound effects if you listen to the single player vid at 00.34 there is a platform that drops away with a little "cartoonish" whistle as it drops, so i think that sound effects maybe added to certain predicaments/obstacles throughout the game.

The bike sounds, and the way it handles in the single player floating island track REALLY resembles the Turtle or Reptile and not the Scorpion or Phoenix. You can see where the line is, and that bike just doesn't seem to have the power to do it.

it looks like there might be color settings for individual pieces - Look at the green pipes vs the blue pipes in top right of picture

It also looks as if some of the pieces will be scale-able. The cylinder the rider is on in this screen has the same skin as the next, smaller, cylinder. It might just be a smaller version of the same thing, but that would be kinda silly.

I will go ahead and say it's a scaled down version of the same piece.



Oh and maybe its just me, but in the screenies that QC and Murdoc pointed out, it looks like the rider is "fatter" in one of the screenies. Is the rider's size another customizable option or are my eyes playing tricks on me?

It just looks like a big poofy "Bubble Vest" to me, but I could certainly be wrong.

It's always hard to know how much of a game is still in flux as release nears.
We would expect the guys at RedLynx to be tweaking aspects of the game right up until the last minute as you are perfectionists.

It seems positively criminal that a game such a TrialsHD doesn't fully get the classic status recognition it deserves IMO.
Possibly because it is not a full priced bog standard retail product and the gaming magazines etc almost always treat a live download game pretty shabbily compared to the publicity juggernauts for stuff like MW3 and Halo 4 etc.
I hope Microsoft realise just how lucky they are to have RedLynx to help drive their digital download strategy on xbox live as Trials and now Evo are far more deserving of praise than the plague of 3D shooters that we have all played in slightly different guises 10,000 times before.

Evo's editor is going to astound people I suspect and if the players, fanbase and trackmaking elite embrace it with the fervour it deserves then track central could become truly massive. http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_cool.gif

There's a slight possibility it's a trick of the perspective but I tend to agree.

Scaleable colourable objects. Like in a 3D rendering editor. Who saw that coming ? http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_e_wink.gif Evo's editor functions to place/copy objects could also be quite gobsmacking.



It just looks like a big poofy "Bubble Vest" to me, but I could certainly be wrong.

To be honest I always thought that was a bodywarmer and unlikely to be the only 'garb' the rider could aquire.
If Redlynx felt like making a great deal of D/L credits for Trials Evo they could have custom Rider outfits for sale soon after release though I think they will include plenty for our style conscious leaderboard replay posers. http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_lol.gif Who doesn't enjoy watching a beautfully executed track run though ? All the better to watch it being done by a rider with sartorial elegance. http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_e_wink.gif
Same goes for any possible cosmetic bike customisation I would imagine.

I still say Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum coloured/styled bikes unlocked for achieving all or most of those medals on the tracks would be a hoot. http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_e_biggrin.gif

Yep. Look at the two small train bogeys on the tracks. One in the track running above and the one our intrepid rider is approaching. Those will definitely be moving at various speeds throughout the game and will have a plethora of objects plonked on them. http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_e_smile.gif

Look at the little chain in the centre of the train buffers! Such detail. http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_cool.gif
I wonder if anything could be attached to those little chains ? Like say, A bike. http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_twisted.gif Train hauling as a possible new minigame ? http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_e_wink.gif

That barrier also looks very useful.

The more obsessive trials fan could list the objects they can already spot from the pics and footage in a thread to imagine uses for them in the Evo editor. We've already seen a great many already.

That is one way to look at it. The way I look at it, I have played skate 2 for around 70 hours, and I considered that a lot for a 60 dollar game, plenty to justify that price. On trials HD, I am sure I am in the 1500 to 2000 hour mark. There have been more than a few 40+ hour weeks for me playing this game. With the way the editor alone looks in evo, I guarentee I will spend at least a thousand hours in evo...

With Map Packs going for $20 and Trials Evolution set to offer so much more than HD is terms of content, I don't think a 1600MSP price point should be out of the picture.

I hope it's $15 (1200MSP), but really, other than maybe losing out on some "unsure" sales, what would the real problem be? Most of us play this game more than any $60 "Blockbuster" title, yet we paid 1/4th of the price. I think they should do Trials Evo on a disc and charge $39.99 for it.

i was pumped for portal 2, waited for a good 3 months for it to come out, then i realized 60$ for a game like that isnt worth it, i dont know where they get off charging money like that for a game like that, what im saying is in portal, you play all the levels, game over, big whoop no fun left in it unless you find a bit of fun in speed-running the levels etc. so its not much of a full fledged game, you just play it, then its over, sorta the same with trials HD, you play all the levels, beat em all, but its not like full of awesome features or anything, but now i realize evo has multiplayer, awesome editor, and other great stuff, and trials is a game that you can play for thousands of hours if you're into it and i dont find a whole lot of other games like that other than a couple good shooters that sorta get boring eventually to me anyways. So i guess it would be worth buying it as a disc game for 60$ or what ever price. Even though, I'de like it cheaper, and on arcade. So im glad theyre doing it the way they are

I certainly stand behind my previous statement that curved lines won't be bad.

I'm not a huge fan of what I will dub "Great Wall 2", as I enjoy going quick on more technical tracks (Trials and Tribulations). The game engine and world looked fluid and beautiful. The far off draw distance, the sculpted terrain, the fricken ROADS.

Trials Evolution is looking more and more to be a totally worthy successor to the Trials franchise.

well i think its safe to say redlynx have delivered, and then some. the screenshots, vids and news really have blown my mind.

when it comes to building a sequel that is both accessible and appealing to the casual player whilst also pleasing the loyal hardcore fans, Trials HD must have been one of the hardest games to follow-up in history.
many casual players found the 'hard' tracks to be ridiculously difficult never mind 'extreme', and yet a lot of us (very much a hardcore minority) have asked to be challenged even further http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_twisted.gif
casual players seem to be overwhelmed by the possibilities in the HD editor (noob tracks http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_redface.gif ) and yet many creators on here feel limited and want more.

but to me it seems they have found that balance with evo. not only that but its crammed full of features, half of which they probably could have left out and it would have still been a huge success but its like they have made the extra effort to put as much in as possible. nothing half-assed http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_razz.gif

i think a lot of the big features, although amazing, were kind of expected (multiplayer, outdoors, global track-sharing) but whats just as impressive is all the smaller things theyve included. its obvious they have read over our many suggestion topics and took everything in which is what puts redlynx way above most other devs out there.

evo just looks so good its almost like weve missed a game inbetween http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_lol.gif , they really have evolved Trials and exceeded at least my own expectations by a long way.
ive never looked forward to playing a game more in my life, thanks and congrats in advance to the devs http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_e_biggrin.gif

although if i had to be critical, its so far seeming a lot more full throttle-big jumps on big bikes and such rather than more Trialy obstacles on small lighter bikes which i prefer.
obviously thats probably because the later stages in the game havent been shown but i do hope there is something at least as small and manoeuvrable as the phoenix and hopefully even smaller/lighter still (maybe looking more like the phoenix rev) so we can really push ourselves http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_e_smile.gif

although if i had to be critical, its so far seeming a lot more full throttle-big jumps on big bikes and such rather than more Trialy obstacles on small lighter bikes which i prefer.
obviously thats probably because the later stages in the game havent been shown but i do hope there is something at least as small and manoeuvrable as the phoenix and hopefully even smaller/lighter still (maybe looking more like the phoenix rev) so we can really push ourselves http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_e_smile.gif

Yes. The friction of the stones used to be really low, making the track almost impossible to pass. We fixed that problem, and now it's much more manageable... did I mention that now different objects have different friction as well... and you can tweak them http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_e_smile.gif

While I like the sound of this, in reality it might cause a few problems.
When it comes to Trials HD, we all know how each object reacts in terms of grip, but for Evo if you can change these values then I can see some track getting made that just go against everything that you expect in terms of surface friction.

Does that make sense?

If you read one of the articles from one of the links on the 1st page then you will find out. To sum it up from what i remember, you earn cash from the types of medals you earn. Platinum medals earn more cash, gold a lil less, etc.

You use the cash to buy gear for your rider and your bike.

What im hoping though, and if a dev would like to come in here and tell me please, whether or not the customizations or upgrades or whatever you want to call the will actually affect the performance of the bike?

rlmergeuser
08-17-2011, 07:05 PM
I'm so hyped liked you guys would believe! http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_e_smile.gif

Only things that could be addressed so far are pop-ups (there were quite a few of them in the first gamescom video of that mountain stage) and the motor sound of the Phoenix. But iirc I've read somewhere on this board that these sounds weren't final.

Also in that mountain stage, it appears that the bike floats above the track without making contact for the first part of the track, what's up with that? I thought at this stage of development, the physics would be done and over with already?

Very glad to see that slight turns do not change the "going straight" feel of Trials! What about tighter turns, are they even in there and if so, do they require to pay attention to at which speed you're going?

RetiredRonin
08-17-2011, 07:32 PM
I really didn't notice that at all. Could it have been perspective and lighting creating an optical illusion?

Also, there seems to be a pretty sharp turn at the end of one of the tracks, not sure which video, right before crossing the finish line. I think that the game will handle it like a Trials HD track where you are effectively on a rail regardless of how your tires, or head, are traveling across the track.

No they do not affect the bike. Everything is based on your skill, and your skill alone.

Your custom appearances show up in multiplayer, etc. so if you see someone in the most expensive outfit in the game in an online match, you can figure he's a pretty good player though...

I certainly hope so. There aren't enough tracks that really utilize a bike other than the Phoenix. I hope this makes people switch it up some.

Yes, those two bikes are more different now. Scorpion is really fast if you get perfect flow to your run, but it's so heavy that it needs plenty of time to accelerate to max speed. A single small mistake costs often very much. Phoenix is lightweight and agile and unbeatable in tracks that require lots of braking and acceleration / in tracks that have lots of steep upward slopes.

Question:
Can we confirm multiplayer track editing?

For example, 2 people on 2 seperate accounts being able to work on 1 track at the same time. Or maybe 2 people on 1 account, 2nd player signed in as a guest being able to work on 1 track at the same time.

I would like to be able to build with people as well, but the amount of people who would really benefit from it isn't that large. Well, for now at least.

Being able to allow multiple people the ability to edit your tracks would be huge though.

Im going to ask a few quick questions. If any of them get answered im happy http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_e_biggrin.gif

1. Can we confirm multiplayer track editing?

For example, 2 people on 2 seperate accounts being able to work on 1 track at the same time. Or maybe 2 people on 1 account, 2nd player signed in as a guest being able to work on 1 track at the same time.

2. How are we going to know if somebody comes out with a new track if we dont have to have them on our friends list?

Now people either send a message or update their forum. So what i was thinking is in the track central thingy (LOL) it would be cool if there is a little preferred player section. You can add different guys to this list and every time they share a new track or send a message or something like that then it would maybe put a little number 1 next to their name showing they have a new track.

I think this would be a good idea. But idk how everything works with what you guys have in it already, so just wondering.

3. Will the Micro Donkey still be in Evo, or will there be another type of small bike or what?

4. How much can we curve the driving lines?

In the videos you can see them curve slightly which by the way i think you guys did an insane job with that making it flow good and work good with the camera. But can you curve the lines like 180 degrees or something like that?

5. Is there going to be a demo for Evo before the game comes out?

Here's a few simple questions. If any devs want to answer any of them, even 1 and i would be happy. Thanks guys http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_e_biggrin.gif

RetiredRonin
08-17-2011, 11:09 PM
I can answer #4!

In one of the videos there is a pretty sharp turn, about 90 degrees in 2-3 feet. I think a better question would be, "Can the line intersect itself, or is it like the snake game?" oh noes, if the line touches itself we all die, the works ends, down turn up, inside becomes outside and the Ghostbusters cross the streams again.
