Disable tips?

Disable tips?

Postby ohnonot » 16 May 2021, 09:05

I would just like to disable the tips I see at random times, like "Only use zippers when it is safe. Long straight lines are ideal." or "First and foremost, focus on where your kart is going." etc.
Is this possible, either in the UI or in a config file?
I don't see it in ~/.config/supertuxkart/config-0.10/config.xml.
If it isn't, where and how would be the best way to request this?

{l Code}: {l Select All Code}
$> supertuxkart --version
[info   ] main: ==============================
[info   ] main: SuperTuxKart, 1.2.
[info   ] main: ==============================


TIA.

I've looked at the source code and I think a tip gets shown if you don't finish better than 50% of all karts:
So if there are 4 or 5 karts total, for example, you get a tip shown if you don't make 1st or 2nd.

Currently there seems to be no way to change this, so a feature request would be needed.
Since I'm also quite new here: Should that be added to github issues?

STK prefers as little options as possible, maybe for next release it will be hidden if you remove the tips.xml completely

with https://github.com/supertuxkart/stk-cod ... 55acba7a7c you can disable tips by removing tips.xml in your data folder now starting from next release (or current git "preview" release) Image
