Rigs of Rods Simulator Game Gets Marked 0.37-r1
Phoronix: Rigs of Rods Simulator Game Gets Marked 0.37-r1
One of the free software projects we have been talking to as of late about better enhancing their benchmarking capabilities for likely integration into the Phoronix Test Suite is Rigs of Rods. While the graphics within this driving simulator may not be the best (at least when compared to Unigine, or within the open-source world, Nexuiz) it's not the graphics that the developers pride themselves on but rather the physics capabilities. Rigs of Rods began as a truck driving simulator game, but since then has turned into a rather interesting physics sandbox of goodies. A new release of their code-base was just made...
Now if they would make objects aware of themselves so they can collapse in on themselve and apply DMM (Digital Molecular Matter) than this would be mayhem.
Hi, i've coded the moving object collision detection subsystem of RoR. In RoR, objects are aware of themselves.

Apart from the wheels, all other collisions depend on the designer's work (if he has defined what is collidable and what is not).
RoR can already simulate a wide gamut of matter (glass/plastic/metal...). You just have to design it in an appropriate way, and it'll work correctly (disclaimer: i've designed/coded RoR's physics of matter). There are some videos on youtube that people experiment with breaking different kinds of solids.

I've got following error when I try to compile RoR
/usr/bin/ld: CMakeFiles/rorconfig.dir/configurator.cpp.o: undefined reference to symbol 'gtk_widget_get_window'
/usr/bin/ld: note: 'gtk_widget_get_window' is defined in DSO /usr/lib/libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0 so try adding it to the linker command line
/usr/lib/libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0: could not read symbols: Invalid operation
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [bin/rorconfig] Error 1
make: *** [source/configurator/CMakeFiles/rorconfig.dir/all] Error 2
Can anybody help me? I'm using Fedora 32 bit with cmake 2.8.
It took a long time but I got Rigs of Rods 0.37 working on my computer yesterday. Sadly, my netbook is too weak to do anything fun. I was hoping to script some Burnout type crashes.
I have not been able to find anything like that. Sadly, it looks as if I'll wait until I have a more powerful computer before playing with RoR again.
