  1. Now, ive not played racer in about 2 years, so, the last version i would of run was about 0.7.8 or something...

    Now, ive downloaded the latest Racer, aswell as an Old version of racer (0.8.8 and 0.8.5)

    Both games load, but brings me a black screen after its loaded the game start.

    QLOG shows...

    Im using an XFX Nvidia 7900GS Card, had it for about 3 years and ive never had any issues with older versions of racer.

    ive downloaded the DLL pack off racer.nl and still nothing, is there anything else i need?

    The "WARN" is the problem, I think - even though Racer says it's reducing 16 to 8, it doesn't manage it.

    In racer.ini the mirror has "fbo_samples=16" in 0.8.5 as far as I know, which needs to be reduced to 8 (it's fine with even less, the mirror just looks less nice. I use 2).

    Or your card might just not support FBO methods enough, you have to adjust this in racer.ini motion_blur {} section. Try setting method=0 (drastic measure, turns off all fbo use which may look bad), or samples=0. The auto_exposure can also be a problem, I'd set that to enable=0.
  3. Cheers for that, it Seems the problem was "method=4" under motion blur, i set it to 1 (Open GL) and it loaded a treat! Still a couple of issues on some tracks regarding Alpha transparency by the looks of it, Carlswood being the main suspect.
  4. RACER does not recognize my wheel/pedals controller ( a Guillemot Thrustmaster Ferrari GT experience) in Linux (Ubuntu 9.04), although the systems sees it ok. with jscalibrator.

    Any thoughts, anyone?
