  • Darken car colours?

    It may be my imagination, but I seem to remember being able to not only change your car's colour, but make them darker as well.

    Is there any way to do this?


    Also, I noticed that CPU controlled cars have darker colours, so this makes sense to me.




    Edit: P.S. I love Death Rally! Thank-you for releasing it! I played the Shareware version all the time when I was a kid. I'll be sure to tell all my friends about this!

    I've no memory of being able to choose brightness of color in the original game, but I could be wrong.

      You can choose the color when you buy a car, there's a slider.

        You're kidding me...

        That's not what I asked.

          Sorry, read your post too quickly it seems The win version is a direct port from the DOS in that regard, and we haven't had a 'darken' feature.

            Thank-you.

            Any plans for adding this feature, or other things like loading a picture off of your computer for a custom driver? Or playing as The Adversary's Deliverator?

              This free version was just a straight port from the DOS version and we haven't planned any updates other than bug fixes for it.

              If we decide to do something more with the Death Rally in the future any ideas like the above can be considered.

                So is it possible to do so just by twitching some files in the directory of death rally?

                    Sorry I forgot to answer to this thread... Lmao.
                    Just download Doomfrost's Death Rally Mod. You can find the link in my signature (you have to click on ссылкой). You can choose different car colors like black, grey, brown, etc. Difficulty is harder than "I got petrol in my veins" and the ranking list is "upside down" (for example, Duke Nukem drives a Vagabond and Bogus Bill owns a Deliverator). The mod consists in a saved game (it's called "new universe"): all you have to do is putting the saved game into your Death Rally folder and loading it!

                        Hey ammm replying again... well, I've been searching on TSearch's Hex editor some numbers, and managed to found stuff like points in the ranking, the player ID (but changing it didn't change the picture), but still didn't find where the colors are... there are some strange numbers, negative and positive, but they don't mean anything clear to me... I'll try a little more, but I hope doomfrost could show up and tell how he did to find the colors and change them... the problem is... I just don't know how the player structure works in death rally, I mean, how they set each player's color, name, pic ID and so on... well ammm, that's all for now... cya.

                          Yeah it's very hard. I haven't catched him in a while. I have to ask him how he managed to do all that stuff, too. You can change your car colors only in that particular saved game if you buy a new car, at the moment .

                              @Raffaello: This Mod only works for DOS Version? (which I have but doesnt run well on my system) When I use it on the windows port it always crashes after race. As my hexed Adversary car does
