    I remember downloading Racer at 049 ish, one Christmas in 2001 ish... I think I was about 21 then, so I'm about to become 36!

    Wow, how time flies.

    Ruud really needs to get the new sound system finally finished, he's been at it almost 14 years now I think :D ;)

    I remember when I first got into Racer you had Carlswood and the Alpine A110. I want to say it was in 2004, but can't remember for sure.

    My 2cents, There are many of us that have been around a long time hoping that Ruud would
    finally fix the many bugs that kept turning up.
    I've been waiting since about 2000 when I was a youngster, I'm now 78 trs old.

    I'll send Ruud another pestering email in the next few days I think :) ;)

    I've been thinking a lot recently about releasing my own packages that sit alongside Ruud's official ones, that basically correct what I think are wrong where possible.

    OK 'wrong' is all about perspective, but the default packages can just be so bad they put newbies off Racer.
    I have a friend who pays for iRacing and enjoys it, but also loved playing Racer on my machine with my own content, but didn't get on at all downloading the vanilla Racer and playing it.


    Since so many of us have been around so long now it shows Racer still holds a great deal of potential. If we can make it the best it can be and put in hard work I think Ruud can't ignore it.
    I'm not sure we've ever made a stand alongside package before in the community, but maybe it'd work to re-invigorate Ruud to finish up a few areas of Free Racer?

    That sounds like a good plan to me. And maybe something to help first time users with an easier setup?

    I don't think a stand alongside package has ever been made but there was that D1GP "total mod" that was made some time ago, that might count.

    Same here man... it's terrifying. :p

    Hey Dave, I think this is a fantastic idea. A more "user-friendly" version for those who don't want to tinker for ages to get it working just right ;)
