    Have you ever dreamt of becoming a real race driver? In case it didn’t work out, you are now given the next best opportunity! This summer you might race against REAL professionals in REAL cars on the REAL tracks, and…..in REAL-time from behind your PC! This is made possible with a patented technology developed by iOpener (www.iopenermedia.com). In the coming weeks 5,000 registered people worldwide will be asked to become beta-testers for the first iOpener Enabled game at the Real-time Racing Portal; www.real-timeracing.com. This is also the web address where one has to subscribe to make a chance to be selected as beta-tester. The selected testers will experience the next generation of gaming first hand!

    The launch of the Real-time Racing Portal this summer will be accompanied by a brand new section on the RaceDepartment Forum, which will be guided by official Real-time Racing crew. Here everyone will have the chance to read what the beta testers have to say and are experiencing!

    We would say: “Go subscribe and try to beat the professional!”

    I think it's justa a matter of time before we see this technology in our current games. It has some obstacles to overcome but has major potential. Finally something really new with groundbreaking new technology.

    Looks rFactor based. rF hud there in the final vid.
     
  6. I also signed up as well. :dance2:

    Do we actually need to install rFactor to play this? :p

    Its not described in the requirements that you need it, but i guess a good pc is needed
     
  8. My PC is all good but the RAM :damnit:

    (that's why every racing sim game sucks on my PC - except Trackmania that is) :rotfl:
     
  9. I registered also. Should be running fine here :) as all other simulations are ran maxed out at 1920*1080

  14. I filled in the reg. bit on their webby,so i wait and see what comes of it,looks like it might be some interesting fun.
     
  15. So could anyone explain this to me? Or link me an article explaining it?

    I signed up for this.

    Just got an email to day with some youtube video linked from it.

    Was displaying real-world vs Real-Time racing........and it just looks like an rFactor mod.

    But i guess they`re not actually developing a game as such, just a means of racing real drivers in real-time in a simulation format.

    Personally, i dont see the point in it, as as soon as you interact with the other drivers cars, its no longer real-world.

    Just interested to see what comes of this :)
