    I have noticed that NO ONE is in the lobby.

    Is there just another server that everyone plays or what?

    Or is there a problem on my side?

    Am I missing something? No one's even replied to this one at all lol. I bet it's something dumb on my end.

    Racer is currently more like test bed for interesting features and whatnot and less like an actual usable racing simulator, in my opinion.

    I hope that once the next Racer final comes out, so with new and updated content, people start to actually race in Racer.

    In the meantime, if you want to race online, try out rFactor. I've made two road cars for it - Corvette and Supra, which received quite positive feedback from the community.

    Yeah, we had about 3 different servers over the past year.. (or more?) and had some good fun on them. Specifically the most recent one, it actually worked really smoothly - thanks to Mitch iirc!

    Racer is a work in progress.. it'll get there someday, but cruising through Poland's countryside and racing on Mugello on my own does it for me!

    I'd do more multiplayer if everyone could drive different cars. used to race a lot in the older versions when you could have different cars.

    Everytime I try it, me and the other players have the same cars. Maybe I worded it badly, but when I play online I don't want to drive the same car as everyone else. Which is the issue I've had, everyone has to drive the same car as the host.

    I don't care either way. We do need to set up a time though, so we can be on at the same time, and not do the english comedy bit of one guy runs in a door while the other guy goes in/comes out of another door ;) .

    Haha, I watched 2 of my friends do that (asking if we'd seen the other one) a few times. Was hilarious..

    @Harey, the last server had a choice of a few cars, as did... Gizmo's(?).

    "Hello' "Cheero Lad" "Wait what?"

    hm well maybe I'm not doing something right then because everytime I've hosted a server I get one car, and other person I drive with, gets the same car, despite not choosing it.
