MAKING OF GoKart NEW MEXICO GAME
If you are interested how this game was made this is the video for you!
It also describes some aspects of DuckHunt Missouri - the first two games.
Q1: In which browsers should I run the game?
- A1: On your desktop or laptop you should run the game exclusively in Google Chrome.
- A2: On your cellphone you can use Google Chrome or Safari.
Q2: The game does not open up on my computer (browser) or it opens but gives a warning that the browser is not Google Chrome
- A1: Check if your browser is opened but minimized.
- A2: If you are sure the browser is not opening up, but your game console is opened
showing the game address.
Open a Google Chrome browser and navigate to the page: http://localhost:65201/server
If you get a message: Master is already Running on this port! that means that the game is already opened somewhere in some browser.
Q3: I am turning my phone but nothing happens or car behaves erratically?
- A1: If you are using iPhone make sure to click GetGyro button on the menu screed (drivers licence) and to get message access granted.
- A2: Keep your phone in landscape mode, if the steering is inverted turn it in "another landscape" orientation.
Q4: Full screen switch is not working and there are no vibrations on the phone.
- A: If you are using iPhone this is expected. Otherwise check if your do not disturbe mode is activated (for vibrations).
Q5: How many players can connect to the same (master) computer?
- A: It is not limited but not more than 4 makes sense.
Q6: How do I connect more master computers?
- A: See the link for connection other masters and connect other computers using Google Chrome browser and that address.
All computers must be in the same local network.
Q7: My phone does not connect to the game (I do not get player image just yellow star)?
- A1: Make sure your cellphone is connected to the WiFi network of the router that the computer is using.
- A2: Make sure your cellphone is using the correct browser - Google Chrome or Safari (not Firefox or something else).
Q8: Can I use tablet as additional master computer?
- A: Yes, you can use anything that can run a browser (Google Chrome) as your master computer!
However, your device that runs as master must have a reasonably powerful GPU.
Q9: The game is horribly slow?
- A1: The game requires a semi-decent GPU card to run!
- A2: If you have laptop with 2 graphic cards your browser has to use the dedicated one (NVIDIA or AMD)!
See the link below our instructions video on YouTube for making your laptop's browser use a dedicated GPU card.
Use dedicated graphics card with Google Chrome on laptop.
