Some weeks ago, Michael, the programmer behind the commercial Irrlicht
based racer game H-Craft Championship
donated to each member of the Irrlicht Engine team a free copy of their game. That was very nice, thank you!
I played the game several times now, and now I know even better why I don't play racing games: I absolutely suck at them ;) I always had this problem. There seems not to be such a thing as a 'good video gamer'. Skills also vary from genre to genre. For example I am a quite good fps player. At least I persuaded myself that I am. ;)
But it is nice to play H-Craft Championship now and then when I have time and I think I have become a little bit better. And - of course - it is nice to watch graphics rendered by code partially written by myself while playing ;)
