    Racer looks sweet!

    That game looks awesome. I am looking forward to downloading it. You may know this though, foyou have to download each car individually, or is there an archive of all the available cars?

    Gid

    I think you have to download them seperately. It looks like many people are making the effort to create a lot of tracks and cars, and so far no-one has gathered them.
    But you can choose which one to download before doing so. Saves alot of download time. :)

    This game SEEMS really cool. But every time I crash, starting again seems...uhh, difficult to impossible. Anyone else having the same prob'?

    Just tried it and trashed it for the second time. Lame. Screw it.

    i've had this game for about 6-12 months (forget when i got it). I like it over my other racing game (evo 1). I love how you can customize the game (window size, fullscreen or not, other stuff like that)

    Can someone explain to me how to change the controls. I cant figure this out, and the directions they give you on the site suck.

    You will find the file where you will be able to choose the type of controller in: <install dir>/racer.ini You can edit this file with textedit, where you'll notice that where the semicolon is removed before the type of controller, that is the "active" one.
    In <install dir>/data/ctrlsets/ you'll find the settings of the different controllers. You can edit them in the same way.
    Good luck.

    Wow. Tried it a third time! Silly me... Props to the dev' for doing this for free, but the strange controls and bugs in this one are way too frustrating for me. Into the trash a third time.
