    I know it ain't WipEout, but you could place it somewhere between the F9000 and FX300 years and then pretend that this is the amature league.
    Btw, will FF have Zone?

    I hope the FF backstory will be vague because I have some fanfictional ideas that take place either between or after the FX400/500 leagues from WipEout like some big changes had happened after or something like that, especially since the tagline says "Next generation of AG Racing". I don't want to go too into detail since this is not the right thread to post it on.

    But I rather hope for a new sequel WipEout instead which probably won't happen at some time.

    I have an idea, a small thing but it might end up being significant (any amount of positive reinforcement is better than none). At the start of the event, the computer could say "Good Luck." And whenever you beat a personal record, it could say things like "Good job" or "Awesome" or something like that.

    Also, I would suggest having an option to switch between Male, Female and "Per Team" computers (per team could be the default). Sort of like switching from Meters per Second, Miles per Hour and Kilometers per Hour (m/s could be the default).

    Also, the HUD needs more yellow in it (yellow is processed by the average brain more quickly than most other colors, hence why it seems to stand out more).

    You are basically asking to bring back 'Curly'.

    Oh wow blackwiggle, you've got a lot of PC's on your hands! Sounds like you could just replace the GPU to beef it up a little and you'd be good to go. Most PC games, especially racers, have controller support but of course this is early days

    EDIT: Also, amplificated, I think you're being needlessly harsh. I know that this comes from your love of the wipeout series and your desire for it not to be spoiled or misrepresented, or have it exploited, but whilst Formula Fusion is obviously appealing to the wipeout crowd, I don't think they're trying to copy or replicate the series. It doesn't say 'wipeout' in the title, and it's obviously going to be a different style of gameplay and presentation which includes the genre of music and visual design. These guys have set out to continue doing what they love, and make a game reminiscent of the series we all love so much and in the process will run into the challenges that such an undertaking presents, such as financial pressures and pleasing fans. For the game to retain the level of quality they're seeking, they will have to try and broaden the audience a bit and not cater exclusively to people who are picky, take their hard work for granted, and demand perfection and like yourself. I personally will love whatever they make because I can see their desire to make something different, and if it's not exactly the same as wipeout? That's fine by me, it's their own work, and they deserve to be applauded for engaging with this community as much as they have to try and getting us on-board, whilst also endeavoring to create a pretty ambitious game.

    I did not hear "good luck" in there.
    And lots of wipeout games had female computer voices. Wip3out, Fusion (the weapon control system), Pure (you hear it everytime you get attacked or receive a medal), Pulse (even the announcer was female), HD (though some people have a male computer voice with their copy, for whatever reason).

    Oh, another thing that I would like to see is each team having their own color for thruster trails and energy weapons and shields and whatnot. Because rule of cool.

    And finally, the game needs to have some kind of reverse thrust (to get out of some tricky situations with troublesome walls) or opposite braking function (used in addition to sideshifts, if they are to be present).

    Hello MrFisty,

    Sorry if the question has already been raised, but can you ensure me that an internal view is available?
    I use it for racing games ... except WipEout because the camera moves a lot during turns and Barrels Rolls made it unplayable for me... but since the camera should be a lot more stable here, I would certainly try it first.

    This game could be the reason for me to buy a new PC

    Thanks,

    Temet

    I've been watching this thread excitedly since it was started and this game is really giving me the feeling that it could be something special. Now I know The Designers Republic are on board I'm pretty much sold, that is some really great news!

    Can't believe this game is being made so close to where we live, if you guys need anyone to come and make you a cup of tea or a couple of free slaves for the day we are available at request

    Thank you for keeping our hopes alive and for listening to this very special community

    And now Cold Storage is involved on the music side of things.
