Does "Racer" have AI drivers ?

Discussion in 'Racer Problems & Fixes' started by marX, Aug 4, 2012.

  1. Hi !
    New here :)

    I have some questions regarding Racer !
    Need help !!

    1. Does it have AI drivers to race against ?
    2. Any "career" modes in any the racing series like DTM, NASCAR, Le Mans Endurance race, F1 etc ?
    3. Is there any software to analyze the telemetry data other than MATLAB ?
    4. Does it takes into account aerodynamics effects as part of the physics package ?

    LOL, I guess I sound like a grumpy old man but I'm running low on my data. Only 280 MB left. Have to make it count.

    BTW, I'm a mech. engineer and used to work at a Suzuki service center. I love troubleshooting cars and was the in-charge for the warranty section.
    I love racing and it would be great to hone my skills in Racer before moving on to the real deal !

    Thanks !

    Does the older version, 0.6.x have physics enabled ?
    Or should I get the new 0.8.x?
    I have an on-board graphics with native dx 8.1 (max - dx 9b) support :(

    1. yes if you make AI's...
    2. no Racer is not a GAME...
    3. not sure...
    4. Every thing you change on a car takes effect...

    ...have Fun.
  3. Thanks mate for the reply :)
    BUT, I didn't get the first one...how can I create one ?
    Is it some kind of a script (is it in LUA) ?

    Regarding Racer versions, you are better off with a newer version however you won't be able to run them with an onboard GPU. I'd seriously consider getting a nVidia graphics card instead.
  5. Thanks for the reply guys !
    Yes KS95, the latest version didn't work in my system. Older version, 0.65 works though.
    BTW, I might get a job, as a design engineer in an automobile design firm and they use Catia. I wonder if there is an option to "import" models from Catia etc other than 3ds max in Racer for *testing*
  6. Double post. Sorry !
