    Hi! I have a very slow pc. So i can play only the non-cg version of the game. So can you please post the new cars in non-cg version. I am sure that i'm not the only one with a very slow pc:D.
    Thanks!

    But you can also make non-cg shader to new cars. It's not difficult, check how is non-cg shader wrote and create your own

    Yeah, you have to understand that these days the standard for cars is CG and most authors don't feel the need to make non-cg shaders now. The best advice we can give is to upgrade. Even my £35 nVidia GT210 gets 25-30FPS with CG cars/tracks. :)

    Did you try taking the car.shd file out of a cg car and run it to see if that would work?

    For me it worked on 1 car, but depends on the car if it has a non-cg shading

    I can help you if you want to buy a cheap PC via Germany, I'm speaking it fluently & Ebay.de is the best place to get the cheapest & best PC worldwide.

    Anyway, I wouldn't stick with non-cg because, at the end, you will upgrade, it's just a matter of time, so I don't say you need a 2K PC, but for 250€, you can have a 3 year old 1K PC for sure.

    Onofrash,
    Check with racer.nl documentation to se how shaders work.

    I'm using the old 0.6.5(i have the 0.9 too, but I prefer the old one), because it works consistently everytime. And the variety of cars(especialy oldtimers) is large enough too. For the newest CG versions of Racer it will be needed a far more superior videocard.

    To be honest I'm not all that sure about the Mac OS.. iirc you can run it through Wine like Linux users?

    make a new car.shd file on these basis:
    shader_originalname
    {
    layer0
    {
    map=gradient.tga
    texgen_s=sphere_map
    texgen_t=sphere_map
    emission=0.5 0.5 0.5 0.5
    }
    layer1
    {
    map=$trackenvmap
    texgen_s=reflection_map
    texgen_t=reflection_map
    texgen_r=reflection_map
    shininess=20
    specular=0.75 0.75 0.75
    blendfunc=filter
    }
    layer2
    {
    map=originaltexture.tga
    blendfunc=one src_alpha
    }
    }
