    As some of you know, Free Rider HD is in the middle of a code overhaul.
    While it is being done, we need to make a list of bugs / features that are missing which irritate people, and would like to see implemented.

    Bugs
    Autos working in editor , but not in game
    Checkpoint dying resulting in ghost rider
    Keys get stuck on restarting​
    Ideas
    Custom Keys / Hotkeys
    Select tool ( highlight lines , change line type, remove bulk lines )
    Thumbnail choosing
    Improved Image generator
    Anti-gravity powerup
    Teleportation powerup
    Toggle FPS (25 / 30)
    Following ghosts in mobile​
    Not going to fix
    Checkpoint system remains the same for now.​

    I think a teleportation would be awesome, same with better eraser, lock camera and thumbnail choosing.

    I mentioned an idea for a switch/key power-up some time ago, where if you'd hit it it would remove a line connected to it. I have many uses for that and I think that it would make gameplay a lot more interesting and would make for new types of track layouts. Teleportation is still a big one for me as well but glad to see it on the list. If the idea for the switch isn't clear enough I could try to explain it better but I hope it's kinda clear.
    I would also like an option when editing to switch from checkpoint to checkpoint, making it not needed to ride the entire track everytime you're going to test a section that's far into the track. I'm really glad that you're changing and adding all this stuff, I care the most about changes to the editor because I mostly draw tracks :)

    Maybe the switches/keys could be colour-coded in the editor and have a faint line connecting them in their colour so you can keep track of them easily. Awesome idea :thumbsup:

    Read it again :p

    We can't fix this right now, but I will probably create it so that this is in place if we want to switch it over at any point. The main issue is that I don't want to break current replays etc

    I did, from what I'm reading the checkpoint system wont be fixed FOR NOW , and "for now" could mean tomorrow or 2 years.

    I think you can fix this. Just reset EVERY ghost. That way, everyone who worked hard on the ghost will all reset. I still think they can say that they have completed the track, they just didn't get a ghost. I honestly think you need to change the ghosting system, the game would be 100000000000% better than it already is.

    Can we also have an option to lower the frame rate to 25fps? Char

    If you die, your time resets and you go back to the checkpoint.

    The checkpoint system is how the checkpoints work. On here, once you die after a checkpoint your time continues and your deaths still go onto your ghosts. On Canvas Rider, once you die after a checkpoint the time resets to what it was when you hit the checkpoint and any death after the checkpoint didn't show up. The CR checkpoint system was better because ghosts were cleaner and times were better. You also didn't have to reset the track every time you died after a checkpoint to make a good looking ghost.

    I personally prefer the FRHD checkpoint system, because if you could simply reset and not lose time, there would be no community contests, and I think that is an important part of the game. It gets the community more involved, encourages competition and helps people get better at ghosting.

    I like the FRHD system better personally, I think being able to not die is part of the game, and going for a 0 death run is a cool thing to do. Only place where I'd want the old system is in really long trial tracks

    Um, that is the same for the other version. Except it's more fun because you have to perfect your ghost.


    I would also love to have a trick ghost leaderboard.

    True, but I don't like being stressed when I play.
