@ James, i'm pretty sure, lol! It's gonna be a Knight Rider game, so it wouldn't be more than logical that KITT's engine sounds are gonna be in it.. Right, guys?

Hey, haven't looked in here for quite a while now, glad to see progress. the vids were cool. glad to see a decent physics engine working here. just one TINY thing caught my eye. the wheels "height" stays the same on the left and right front wheel. they seem to not move indepenently. you can see it at 00:13 when the front left wheel goes up. i hope you understand, what i mean :)

apart from that, looking forward.

PS: if you need any help translating to german, contact me

PPS: oh, btw, the damages on the bus, are they calculated like in gta iv (which would be amazing) or "standard" like san andreas?

Just saw the KR Game Tests video on Vimeo, really cool! KITT looks very detailed :)
Will this game have replay mode? How about screenshot / photomode like in Gran Turismo 5? Would be fun to photograph / take screenshots of KITT in Knight Riderish locations, Turboboosts, skimodes, etc.

Replays and photo mode would not be that difficult to achieve, it might have to come as an update later down the road, my plate is pretty full as it is with this project lol. Those vids are pretty old, and the physics are much better now. I actually have it now where Michael Knight is running around the city in 3rd person view.

I am very impressed with the videos of the game that I've seen on YouTube but unfortunately I cannot enter the site as it is "down for maintenance." I am wondering if this is a problem with my computer. Could you possibly help me with this?

Dude... it says "Down For Maintenance" because it is "Down for Maintenance." The site isn't finished yet. We will all be updated when it is up and running. All I had to do was go back 1 page. Please, everyone, take the time to look before asking. There is a search feature.

Thank you, I was asking because my computer is older and it shows the "down for Maintenance" a lot and I wanted to confirm it wasn't just my computer. I would like to apologize for this inconvenience

Nice videos! I'm glad the project is still going!

But I'm a bit confused. What will the gameplay be like? Will it be like GTA (Total freedom) or Driver (Cant get out of the car)? :p

Very nice. BTW, I was wondering.. Is there gonna be an option that allows you to use your own music, like in GTA SA? That would be cool :)

Oh, hey, glad to see progress :D The Gameplay Video was great! I really see what you guys are doing and what you could an will do in Future! Until now, it looks very Standart, but i know, what you guys can do! You definetly show your skills! And i just can't wait until i see some test pictures or Videos from the actual Game, with the environment, reflections aso. But there are some questions i like to ask:
Will you be able to steal other cars? Can you drive other cars than KITT? (for example Michael Longs trans Am or Standart Trans Am or some Other Cars which are or will be in the game)
Will you have Radio Stations like in GTA or just some Background Music?
Will the Game be Hack-/Moddable?

Ki4t

Ps. i hope i just didn't miss the new topic which you wanted to open :/
Knight Rider 4 ever!!!!!!!

Michael can drive any vehicle. He can not steal cars like in the GTA series, since that would go against his character, but he can commandeer parked vehicles and it actually subtracts from your overall skill points since you should be driving KITT as much as possible. After all he is "nearly" indestructible. But at times and certain missions you will be required to drive other flag vehicles including RC's motorcycle.

Will you have Radio Stations like in GTA or just some Background Music?


You will have both. We are right now working on a smart music player for background music. Think Red Dead Redemption where the music changes based on the mood. This will be original Knight Rider soundtrack music. We have about 70 tracks to use so it never gets repetitive. We are trying to get karaoke versions of the sound track to Knight Rider for the radio stations, and we are working on a little tool that will convert your MP3's to a format that is readable by our game engine.

Will the Game be Hack-/Moddable?


I want it to be very badly, but I'm not sure if that will happen or not. If the game becomes popular and NBC/Universal doesn't try to stop the project (they recently went after guys making a free horror fan game called Terror Dome) then we could possibly release it as open source, then anyone could modify it or even create an all new game using our code and assets. After all it will pretty much be a GTA clone, you could make any style game you want.

Please, and I really mean it. Please, with sugar on top, tell me you can drive the SEMI plus trailer as well. If you pull that off, GTA can suck it. (Nah, it's still an awesome game :P)

You will get to drive the semi with trailer while being attacked by a motorcycle gang trying to hijack the semi. Hope that is what you were looking for lol.

You will also fight Garth in a hand to hand combat on top of the Goliath trailer while its barreling down threw the desert after you of course successfully traject (is that a word meh eject?) yourself from Kitt to the trailer.
