latest BETA source code

Discussion in 'Racer' started by fusebox, Feb 3, 2011.

  1. Hello folks!

    Was just wondering whether the latest beta versions' source code is open and if so, where can i download?
    any CVS/SVN link i can use?

    Also, how come there arent any linux builds?


    Thanks in advance
     
  2. No, after the 0.5 final, the source has been closed. Partly, because Racer has also commercial versions.
     
  3. I see.
    What about linux builds for the betas?
    Were the linux ports scrapped?
     
  4. It seems Ruud is mainly targeting the Windows platform at the moment. Perhaps when the next Racer final version comes out, there will be Linux and Mac versions as well.

    Nowadays however, it is very easy to set up a dual or triple boot system and having Windows for gaming is very ok. Developers don't want to waste resources and time developing for a platform that only 5% of the users have.

    Here's an interesting topic for you to read: http://gamedev.stackexchange.com/questions/445/why-is-there-a-lack-of-games-for-linux
     
  5. ftw? sry but i can not understad :/
     
  6. Yes, not commercial in the sense that you can buy from the store, but for some versions of Racer are created for special purposes and are not publicly available or something like that - check out http://www.cruden.com/

    $191,000 - I think you could buy more than a used hot hatch, haha :)
     
  10. &%$%#"$%%$$!!! say what? :o

    I know that that isn't a playseat done by a man in a shed with some pipes and a welder, but damn... I buy half the cars that I dream about with that money!
     
  11. No but if it gives your F1/Indy/V8 Supercar/WRC team's driver/s that extra edge and they win a championship, it'd be a justifieable price.

    Haha yeah, it's an amazing simulator, but for that price I'd just go get myself a few cars and go to a few track days :D
     
  13. Or what if there was an arcade parlour, or game shop etc that had a few of them, and charged you for 'sim time'. You could develop cars at home, and drive them on one of these occasionally. Race against friends, or Racer pals in another country on their pc, or in another sim platform in another country? I expect the motion platform could be used for other sims as well, x-plane or flight sim X, or virtual sailor/vehicle sim etc.
     
  14. So the guy with the gun here is you, and you are going to shoot me if I do not buy one?

    If you wanna shoot me then you have to give me the same gun and accessories and resources that you have and we need to be released in separate but nearish locations to hunt each other.

    Actually, I would prefer a knife or fist fight to the death.. it would be faster and I could get back to playing with PC hardware.
