stunts: A revival of the classic game Stunts (LambdaCube tech demo)

[ bsd3, graphics, program ] [ Propose Tags ]

A revival of the classic racing game Stunts to serve as a non-toy-sized example for LambdaCube. In order to make it work, you need to download the original game as per the instructions given by the program.

The program contains screenshotting functionality that allows you to capture frames as separate PNG files to produce movies with a smooth frame rate. To enable, install with the capture flag:

cabal install --flags=capture

It is also possible to compile a version of the program that looks for the resource files in the current directory by enabling the portable flag.

Automatic Flags

Enable the continuous screen capture functionality.


Compile a version that looks for resources in the current directory.


Use -f <flag> to enable a flag, or -f -<flag> to disable that flag. More info
