Line Rider

JayLine RiderThis strangely compelling and unique little webtoy was just released over at deviantArt, and a bunch of us were playing while chatting about it in our new irc chat room (if that link doesn't work for you, the chat room is always available via a Java client by clicking "Chat" in the menu above.)

The idea behind Line Rider is a simple one: You are given an interface with which to draw a surface for a little character on a sled to slide upon. Once the surface is drawn, just click the play button (triangle pointing to the right) to watch the ride.

Although still a work in progress, there is a lot of fun to be had with this little toy. In fact, you can even save and load tracks that you build, which are saved locally on your own computer.

The author, FSK, has also made available a downloadable version that promises to have a better frame rate and is resizable, though it is in .exe format and therefore will only run on Windows.

Tiralmo and Blauwbaard (author of Panic) suggested the toy needs a few objectives to make it more enjoyable, so here is a list of tasks to get you started:

  1. Create a ramp to slide down without crashing.
  2. Create a ramp with a jump, and a smooth landing.
  3. Create a loop-de-loop.
  4. Create a backwards loop-de-loop.

Any other objectives you'd like to add? Let us know in the comments.

If you loved Line Rider but were frustrated by its limitations, then be sure to check out the new updated version, Line Rider Beta 2!!.

Loop-de-loop doesn't work in the current version: You crash into the starting ramp. (Or maybe there's some trick to it that I haven't figured out yet?) I am, of course, drawing the loop from left to right.

Really cool! But needs some kind of smoothing mechanism for drawing, and an eraser tool.

Peter- Try making a break in the track right before the loop.

Also, I agree with technograff, this needs an eraser tool.

Another challenge we came up with on IRC:

Make the rider do a loop-the-loop backwards.

'that promises to have a better frame rate and is realizable'. realizable? Resixable perhaps? Also, if anyone is interested, the downloadable version runs nicely under wine

Of course you meant "resizable", which is the same thing I meant. =p Thanks, I've fixated it.

Just for the fun of it, try to make a slope that he goes down pretty fast then one that eventually stops him and makes him go backwards.

I forgot to mention- my objective suggestion is to have him do a flip without crashing.

I was able to make him to a backflip without crashing, then crash him on purpose and still have him do a jump. Great potential in this game, I must say!

I'm confused... I tried a loop-de-loop, but he got stuck in it. How do I not do that?

I had a lot of fun splitting the sled and the rider and having them race through obstacle courses--but in the 'objectives' you list above, ....what's a backwards loop-de-loop? a standard loop is pretty easy to do if you break up the course, but backwards?

Victory! :o I managed to create a loop-de-loop but just by trial and error. The loop has to have a break at the beginning and at the end otherwise the sleder will hit the ground after going through the loop. The only issue I had was that, well, the boy cant hang on very well so while the sled did the loop, the boy ate it. A vector-like point tool would work very well here, as well as an eraser. Maybe a bobsled?

to make a loop it has to be like this

-------/\----------------------

its pretty hard to draw it using those but it should have a ramp leading up to a semicircle. then at the end of the semi circle it should hav a kink, then land on a ramp and back on track.

hope that helps

Try making a series of unconnected ramps, that appear like a fragmented zig zag. If the sled keeps falling through the line, try drawing it from the left side of the screen.

That was...oddly satisfying. Hopefully they'll add a few more features to this soon, it's a lot watching that poor little guy fly around and crash.

I've found an interesting glitch in this game. Doubtless, other have discovered it too, but no one has posted it here. There are a number of ways to activate it:

1. Make a vertical fall that narrows into a chasm, and at the bottom of the chasm put a lot of near-vertical lines really close together.

2. Make a ramp and build up some speed, level out the track and place a whole bunch of vertical lines really close together at the end of the track.

3. Put a bunch of intersecting lines overtop of where the sled will spawn, and then scribble a bunch of tight circles around it.

Any of these methods should result in the rider and the sled flying very quickly in random directions, sometimes through walls.

if you get the slope just right, they go up it, and almost tip over, but then the sled pulls them back! very entertaining

Funny little game!

I managed to create a loop the first time I tried, and then couldn't repeat... I tried something like 20 times... LOL I made him have epilepsy though!

I think that would be a great upgrade to put a zoom in for when you draw, and an eraser...

How did you do to make him go backwards? I tried, and he wouldn't want to get on the line...

Ha, I just found a really fun thing to do: Make a series of descending slopes (10 will work), spacing them a little farther apart each time. This will make the guy go really fast. At the end of the last slope, make a little bump. The sled guy will hit it, and get sent flying. It's really funny to watch!

Thing this needs:
An easier straight edge tool
An eraser
An undo button, I make way to many mistakes...
A way to share your tracks with other people
Zooming in.
Other types of terriain/objects, maybe?

This is a fun toy, though I echo the need for more tools. In the mean time, there are workarounds:

-Straight Edge-

Hold your mouse against a book.

-Undo-

Repeatedly Save/Load your drawing.

This is an amazing game. I agree that the challenge in him falling off so easy actually makes it better. The only thing I would add to it is a straight line tool since we're all cheating and doing it anyway, and it seems to make much more effective tracks. I've got a couple I might video but they're saved at work, so we'll see about that. Either way, I have spent hours playing this game and will probably come back again and again.

A version with some levels/goals would be neat (touch point A/B/C, stop in circle D, etc), but the free draw would have to be included or no dice :)

im really sorry for the delay on the update:/. my motherboard broke and i got ill, so its still not finished .i cant promise any dates because whenever i do that it turns out i cant do it in time:).

about the celling stuff:
that is because the way you draw the line determines the directions of the normal of that line. god knows i tried to make the lines colide both ways but coudnt.
in the update you can hold down shift to reverse the direction of the normals (a crappy workaround).

other stuff in the update:
-eraser
-straight line drawing
-deleting saved tracks
-zoom
-flag (this lets you mark the curent position of the rider while simulating so you can later simulate from that point on)

glad you like linerider so much and please be patient im giving it all i got:).

It bothers me to see all these sites popping up exploiting the work of someone that came up with a creative idea. Those other sites more than likely have taken FSK's work, decompiled it, changed it, and recompiled it all without permission from the author.

To make matters worse, they are profiting off the ads and traffic their sites are generating, which FSK sees none of.

Ask yourself if that is something you value the next time you choose to support one of those other sites by visiting it.

I used to play both X-moto and elastomania but I finally found the mid 90s moto line rider I was talking about. I think It was the first version of Dirt Bike or maybe it was called Moterbike. I dont have a Mac so I cant check which version it was but i remember the Brad Quick name. It was much like line rider graphics wise only you had throttle and could control the tilt. Also you could chose a type of bike or even build your own. It came with pre made tracks or you could build your own and trade them online. He later made more 8bit Nintendo-ish versions of the game, but the simple one was always the best.

left-click where you want the line to start, right-click (still holding left mouse-button), release both buttons, left-click where you want the line to end. That's it.

Also, I would pay money for a version of this where you could erase and adjust speed (or friction factor, or both).

Straight line trick... (THE CORRECT WAY) Someone had already typed it almost perfectly. There are two ways.

1st.

Right click WHERE you WANT the line to start. THEN... move to where you want the line to end... left click and hold, then drag your mouse a little bit. Voila! It drew a line. NOW... for number 2.

2nd. Some exact steps... EXCEPT... after the first right click... YOU CAN RIGHT CLICK ELSEWHERE on the drawing board to move the damn window for flash settings that pop up! It will not affect the direction of your straight on that second right click. Then after that second right click to get that damn flash settings pop up window out of your way.. left click like above, hold and drag.

It is really, really, really easy if you do exactly as told. You can draw straight lines ALL DAY LONG. It isn't some "hack". It is more like a glitch! A cool one at that.

The Straight Line Tutorial V.1 by Mikey Mike

If you right click somewhere then quickly left click where you right clicked without clicking the pop-ups, you will draw a straight line! cool eh?

The pros use this to get their ramps and loop-de-loops alot easier to curve perfectly and smoothly.

Here is an example of the trick (shown below)

Now, say you drew that first line normally so that your mouse was at the first dot ready to draw another line. This is when the Straight Line Trick comes in. You right click where that second dot is so that some options come up but MAKE SURE you avoid left clicking any of those options, just quickly left click where you want your straight line to end.

This straight line process has to be drawn in under a second or two AT LEAST or the trick won't work.

Just choose your starting point by left clicking anywhere (or maybe it already has been chosen)then right click where you want the line to end then QUICKLY left click to draw your straight line.

The best way to make straight edges pre beta 2 is to click with the left, then the right so a little box appears (with options on it), then move the cursor away and click with the left. it should remove the box and leave a straight line from point a to point b.

To save as many Line Rider files as you want follow these steps.

1. Right click the mouse while in the game.

2. Go to 'Settings'.

3. Click on the icon of the arrow pointing into the folder.

4. Where it says 'Local Storage' and there is a sliding bar, move that bar up to unlimited (or however much you want LR to save on your computer)

Have Fun!

If this is about LineRider then you need to go see this LineRider track. I created it and It's more ruthless than any other LineRider track I've seen so far. Either go to the Url I posted http://www.reveile.org/LineRider or go to Google Video and search for "Vectorius". You can even download the actual track file and get instructions for how to load it on your own computer.

This game needs a pause so when you go off a killer jump and he's doing a backflip and levels out to keep going you can pause it to continue the track!

Hmm, interesting.

Uh, not really.

Seriously, I find this webtoy completely impossible and frustrating, for three reasons.

1. If, after leaving the track on a jump, he hits the track at any angle, any angle whatsoever except for straight parallel, he will instantly fly off the sled.

Which brings me to my second problem:

2. Every time he leaves the track, be it via a jump or a steep slope, the sled immediately starts twisting to face downwards, so less than a second of airtime is necessary to CREATE the offending angle and crash the sled.

Which brings me to my THIRD problem:

3. Literally any deviation in the track causes him to hop up and down as he drives over it. Even going down the slightest of slopes will cause him to fly upwards as he goes over the edge, thus giving him an opportunity to twist the sled downwards and crash into the stupid track as he goes.

So in conclusion, anything other than a completely straight line or a curve so gradual that it can't be drawn precisely by human hands will cause an immediate crash.

Every time I try and make a jump half as high or a slope half as steep as even the TINIEST of the ones that you guys claim to be able to create with ease, the little guy goes flying off the sled the instant he even touches it. I can literally not do ANYTHING, nothing at all, zero, zip, nada, with this stupid webtoy.

Have a nice day, I'm off to play on the d of i blog.

Hello. I was wondering if someone would be kind enough to lend a bit of help: on youtube you see videos where people are using the drawing tool to help make perfect loops & so on. How do you get the drawing tool? thanks

I seem to remember playing a Santa Claus game where there was a similar idea to this, you had to make a slope to guide him through obstacles collecting presents.

Found it;

-I think that Line Rider Beta 1 is the worst thing ever made.

-- I think Line Rider Beta 2 is the bestest coolest dang thing that was e'er imagined by the humaniodal cranium. 'Nuf said.

Oh, and i've come up with a trick - I call it a Straw. Best done with the Line Tool in Beta2. Not something really big like Cannons, Elevators, or Nose/Tail Manuals, but it's just if you want to watch Line Rider get squished. Or if you're out of tricks that haven't been done before.

  • Make Line Rider go down a line at high speed.

  • Curve the end of that line upwards

  • Draw a parallel set of lines right above, but as a ceiling. Make this line so that it gets more squished at the end.

  • Test it. Fix it. Repeat until it works. Line rider should be vibrating madly between the lines, more so as he get's the the end of the "straw", and then when he finaly comes out he should pop out quickly yet remain on his sled. Oh the suspense!

    to create a loop the loop:
    1- create a tiny ramp that is capable of making your guy land like 1 cm away from the end of the ramp.
    2-from the landing continue the loop until he goes threw the blank 1cm space
    3- to make it look like he ain't jumping use the green lines to make the relation between the ramp and the landing

    by the way:
