Racer for Mac0.5.4.3

06 March 2008

Realistic OpenGL racing simulation game.

What is Racer for Mac

Racer is a free cross-platform car simulation project (for non-commercial use), using professional car physics to achieve a realistic feeling and an excellent render engine for graphical realism. Cars, tracks and such can be created relatively easy (compared to other, more closed, driving simulations). The 3D, physics and other file formats are documented. Editors and support programs are also available to get a very customizable and expandable simulator. OpenGL is used for rendering.

I'm running this on a G5 iMac 2 gig machine and it is excellent. Yes, you do need to muck around with ini files and it does help to read the forums. Some cars are great and others hopeless and the same goes for tracks. It seems better to go for new tracks and cars as they are optimised for newer versions. It also networks nicely with a PC I have, but again you need to muck around with the ini files. It is quite realistic and Rudd has done a great job.

I have to take back most of what I said in my previous review...I just needed a couple of days to get this simulator. It does have those blasted .ini files, but once you get past them it's a very functional "game" (again, simulator really). I really like it!

This game is just really bad... As said before you have to edit the blasted .ini files just to change the screen resolution. The graphics are okay but what good are they if you car won't run after a few minutes (for some reason it maybes "blows" the engine after a few minutes/wipe-out). I don't want to work at trying to play a game to relax!!!

It runs like hell on a 1.5 GHZ G4, 70fps @ 1440x900 fullscreen. People must have in mind that this game is not an arcade style game but a powerfull simulator that can be fully personalized. The main engine makes the magic, the rest is defined by the quality of the model's created by the contribuitors of the game... in my opinion a must!

Performance is laughable. Nice graphics do not make-up for poor game-play. You have to edit these cursed "ini" files to change something as basic as the monitor resolution the games uses. How do I change controller settings? How do I make the car do in reverse if I hit a wall dead on? Maybe they'll have it fixed up in a few years.

It's a good game, especially for a pre-release. It takes a LOT of resources though, especially for as (relatively) simple as it is. If you know about .ini files you can "tweak" it and it will run a little faster. Overall, if you have processing power to burn, I recommend it. For anything with a single processor, though, it's likely to be too slow to play :-(.

Hey I downloaded this review, I played it, and realized how slow this thing is. On my 600mhz I book, it runs at 3.5fps. There also is a bug when you try to quit. The engine sounds are good though. I might recommend it to people with fast(very) machines.

Version 0.5 finally has sound, and the extra car and track plug-ins finally work. The game is slow, however; it runs at 10 fps on my 800 Mhz 512 MB RAM iMac, some cars don't work (due to version differences), and it's difficult to configure preferences. Still, it's free, and due to the huge amount of extras you can get, it's worth a try. The mouse controls are a little tricky at first, BTW.

Well it is free, however it is not playable with out messing with a lot of prefferences. It was poorly ported from windoze.

YOU CAN USE THE KEYBOARD you just have to configure your .ini files for it. A great app, fun to play, and free! Good graphics, runs great on my 450 dual G4 with Radeon 9000 Pro. It never locks up, but a couple cars do cause the program to quit. Fun, runs good, and free, I think this is a keeper.

awesome. it keeps getting better. can't wait until there is a finished product-type thing. ambrosia's racer looks curiously like this game, except with better designed models, etc.

this is the only program I have ever used on Mac OS X that has made it do a hard lock-up, and make me hit the reset button on the front of the tower. Not good...

Okay... Mac OS 10.2.1 When it' opens the window is filled with the current screen but upside-down! I can watch the upside-down image change when I go to force-quit it. This is worse than when it was at 0.00001. I'ts very new, so I won't rate it yet.

WARNING!! Jaguar completely crashed!! When I turned off my mac and started 9.2.2 my 10.2-partition was gone, I was asked to initialise it.... Lucky for me I had DiskWarrior and Jaguar was completely restored!!!! I'm sure this program will be great in the near future, but for now.... I won't try it again...

Great start for a free racing app. Lots of bugs but, I'll be with you as you release fixes. No sound, can't move window, no menu select, no help. Keep up the work, it has high potental.
