Seriously, if this works the way I think it should, the engine could turn into the equivalent of a variable-height raycaster with floor textures, with even more flexibility.

for a racing game I think constant height would do fine, but it would be cool if there was a variable wall height fps or something. Mode 7 + raycasting would be cool though since the mode 7 would do the floor textures and raycasting wall textures

give at least a little bit of height instead of a tile though. in the first mariokart, i could never see those in the distance... X[

it'll be harder to see on a ti, thats for sure.

More options would be nice, but for something like this i think speed should be a priority above all else.

Eh, I wasn't really planning on using the walls in F-Zero, I just wanted to do it 'cause it'd be cool...

Oh, by the way, I've been thinking about a faster way to do the Mode 7 rendering, and I think I'll be able to shave off about 100 clock cycles per pair of pixels... that's about 150,000 clock cycles per frame! Though, I'll have to add a bit of overhead onto that to do some extra calculation outside of the pixel loop... but I think it'll be worth it.

After an intense spriting session, I now have object rotations! I set up an object which moves and rotates, as shown:

I also added the ability to go backwards and "strafe" left and right, as you might have noticed in the screenshot.

fucking awesome. Really reminds me F-Zero 68k, just without the grayscale. I like the cars especially.
