Racer v0.5.2 beta 3 released
Posted by pws on 2003-09-30 Ruud has released a new beta.
This version include:
- Collision detection (flying into space) seems gone
- Some basic AI racing (this cries out for lots of features, but it's just basic racing against other driving cars)
- Much improved multiplayer prediction provided you have LAN and good framerates
- Stabilized FPS counter
- Track steer/road noise (force feedback)
- Graphics engine fixes & lots of other fixes
"We've reached an interesting point in the history and development of Racer. The game development has stabilized for a bit, the game runs well, and the community surrounding it continues to be a strong point in the worldwide modeling community. I'd like to take a minute and describe what Racer currently has to offer for those who are unaware of the game. This should not be construed as a review, as Racer isn't a finished product."
Posted by pws on 2003-08-21 I have implemented a Search option in the Track section. You can search a track by name or part of the name.
Download problem status: Our provider is still working for a solution, but not as fast as we expected...
Site was down again.... and local download blocked!
Posted by pws on 2003-08-05 The site was closed again for a more than 12 hours by our provider!
This time, despite the limit in number of simultaneous file download, a user has downloaded 3 files with 30 connections to each! (more than 90 connections for 1 user!)
There is no local download yet! We are working with our provider and hope local download will be back next week.
Local download are back!
Posted by pws on 2003-08-04 Local download are now limited in two ways :
- You need to wait 15 seconds between 2 downloads
- Maximum 5 downloads in 10 minutes This limitation is by IP adress
This should not disturb you to much, but avoid automatic whole site download...
Site back, but no download yet...
Posted by pws on 2003-08-01 Our site was blocked by our Provider because some people abused and download the whole site massively.
All local download are not available yet, and will back when a download limiter will be in place (maximum x download in x minutes). This limit will not disturb normal user but block whole site download!
I hope local download will be back in 24-48 hours.
