I just posted a minor patch to Tux Racer for those Tux Racer users stuck in countries with nonsensical measuring systems; quite amazing since I know very little C. 8-P
To turn on the MPH patch, just save the patch to the /usr/src directory (as root) and run:
patch -p0 < mph.patch
from /usr/src. This'll only work right away if Tux Racer's source is in /usr/src/tuxracer-0.61 -- if not, you'll have to figure out how to make it work. Run Tux Racer, and all speeds will be in miles per hour. Want to change it back? Open ~/.tuxracer/options and change:
set miles_per_hour true
set miles_per_hour false.
It's that easy! And we're selling it to you for the low, low price of $0.00!
