Realistic OpenGL racing simulation game.

Overview

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.

this a really good simulation game, especially the engine sound. Some of the new cars is required version 0.50b but I don't know where to download it.
