    Hi everyone.

    I was playing this game long time ago i remember there was introduction of new effects like moiton blur. but i don't remember and I'm not up to date what could be done today to Racer in terms of graphics.

    I would ask you guys if anyone can share there configs/mods/tweaks for Racer in order to get best visuals. I have seen some really good looking screenshot so i would like to ask if you could share settings.

    Thanks in advance.

    Lol i think u can only use that graphics mod with CG versions. What is does is that it increases the contrast (correct me if im wrong)

    oh true :D raphael thanks.
    I think some of effects are not working with latest version?
    8.37, I know reflections are broken so I updated to 8.38, but At night looks like they are still not working.
    Also shadows don't look as good as in your vids raphael

    No Prob, It's Raphael's work Thank hi- Oh wait. I just saw you did. Nevermind :p Anyway I have bad shadows as well there very rough edged with lots of jagged edges. Everybody else's shadows are smooth.

    Well , I don't use the lastest beta's because of a camera bug =/ . That jagged edges can be like this because of your GPU . Ati are not so compatible with open gl as nvidia is .

    Yep, a few people have said that the shadow could be caused by ATI. I don't use the latest beta either. I'm going to try 0.8.36 as I haven't tried that one yet.
