To quote: This update adds a track editor, a title/menu screen, accurate collision detection with the environment and the option to reset the best time (since you may be racing on custom tracks that are longer than the one you set the record with).
In the editor you use the directional pad to move around and press the 1 and 2 buttons (on Wii) or X and O buttons (on PS3) to change the type and rotation of the selected tile. Pressing Plus or Minus (on Wii) or Start (on PS3) will save the track and return you to the main menu.
When I get the time Iíll be fixing up the UI and probably editing the track tile meshes so that you donít get completely stopped when you drive into their ridges. Iím also planning to add online scoreboards and track sharing to the Wii version. Version 3.4 Changelog
: In this small update Iíve fixed a problem with track saving, replaced the PS3 analog stick controls with Sixaxis motion controls and the Wii version of course now features the most recent home dashboard menu.
Now on PS3 you use the X button to accelerate, the circle button to go in reverse and you just tilt the controller to turn.
