One of the best freeware games out there: GeneRally
Great fun and a superb track builder
Really nice game if you have 2 minutes spare time. Some really cool track layouts
Reminds me of RD Retrovolutions....
i was always playing this with my borther a few years ago
interesting seeing that this game still has his fans
I wish we could form a generally league:handshake:
unfortunatly you can't play multiplayer there, unless you have two players at one keyboard
the best entertainment during those boring computing classes at school!
it's nice but i prefer miniraceonline...
Welcome to the GeneRally section!
Decided to start up this forum section now that the home of GeneRally, RSC, is down. If any of you regular GR users are around then feel free to make this your new home.
Also, if you are in contact with GR useres that are not present at RD make them aware of this place.
Thanks for reading and welcome
Thanks for reminding me about GeneRally
I had totally forgotten about this game. Thanks for reminding me This is perfect for my laptop
Let's do some Racing Clubs with this game
If only someone make it enable the online play .

Generally Rookie Championship : Season 14 [Login][Race]
Generally Rookie Championship
"let rookies have their say"
GRC sub-site in GRO website
Well, atm, there a no dedicated forum for GR compos, but be sure it will be moved there when it will be done
OK, OK, OK... now we have two international forums, I have to re-make all compos threads as we lost everything with RSC's death (of course there are this mirror thingy project, but atm, we have nothing and the show must go on).
So, let's get started : GRC, or Generally Rookie Championship is a competition reserved for "Rookies", or more precisly to "Bronze" and "Silver" classes according to GRO rules, ie. rookies and also more experienced "amateur" drivers. So, all the good drivers are not permitted to race there, which makes GRC an ideal entry-level formula to all GR newcomers.
So, the current situation is : We are currently in the 14th season, and we already raced 3 rounds, of course, due to RSC downtime, the attendance was not excellent, as we were only 10 to race Round 3, but chance makes that the new forums are coming during the Christmas break, meaning that there will be no rounds during 2 weeks, so that's the ideal moment to join if you missed the first rounds !
So here's the calendar :
Netton Park : From 3/12/2009 to 9/12/2009 (Round over : Results)
Hakulin Ring : From 10/12/2009 to 16/12/2009 (Round over : Results)
Orallio Park : From 17/12/2009 to 23/12/2009 (Round over : Results)
Yas Marina South : From 7/01/2010 to 13/01/2010
Lobo City Street Course : From 14/01/2010 to 21/01/2010
Masters of Dicrette : From 22/01/2010 to 28/01/2010 (/!\ 25 km race /!\)
You can check the complete calendar and also the current standings and results here
So, how do we play ?
Well, as Generally is not a online multiplayer game, everybody have to play offline. But to simulate "real racing", we set up a system : The login system.
It seems quite complicated, but it is not that complicated, in theory, we could summarize this method into 3 steps :
You login on the website (you'll find the GRC login link here)
You make the race of your life
You send required files to firstname.lastname@example.org
But for more details, a simplified version of rules is available on post #2 of this thread
OK, how do we join ?
It's very easy actually, you just need to reply to this thread or send an email to email@example.com and give the following informations :
Your nickname (preferably RSC Nickname if you were there)
Your email address (to send your login informations which are valid for every GRO competition)
But you can also sign up teams, as many drivers as you want, the only condition is to be at least 2 drivers, so basically, I need to know :
The name of your team
The drivers of your team
Here is the current entry list :
If you can't see updated entry list, press F5
What files do we need ?
All files you need are available in this pack, actually it is a special GR copy for GRC, with tracks, cars, AIs, options, etc. well all you need for GRC.
Download GRC pack (1,5 Mo)
Good luck !

You must also race against 3 AIs : I_Rookie_1, AI_Rookie_2 and AI_Rookie_3 which are available on the GRC pack, you must not modify them. All GRO events use the "login system", meaning that you must login, race, and send files of your attempt to be counted on results, here's exactly how to do step by step :
When you ready to race, check your settings, go here and click on the link below, type your login and your password
Then, download the .zip file and extract it to the GRC GR copy main folder

Select the track you've just downloaded, select your driver (IN FIRST), and then the 3 AIs. Start the race
Before that the race start, you can save your game and modify starting grid thanks to Savegame reader
When you have finished your only attempt (when the results appears), take a screenshot with F11 and save your game
.zip your files (I need only .bmp and .gam, no .trk) and send them to email@example.com
Wait for the results ^^
