Startup crash

Discussion in 'Racer Problems & Fixes' started by Resi Respati, Jul 31, 2010.

  1. Hi,

    I recently got interested in Racer and giving it a try. So I downloaded the latest non-CG version ( and the newest version (0.8.14) just to try which one works better on my PC. As I tried to run the application, none of these versions worked on my computer.

    For version, after running racer.exe for a few second the game crashes back immediately to desktop. I tried it again on fullscreen mode, it doesn't crash but it's not responding.

    I tried the non-CG .exe file on version 0.8.14, it also crashes back to desktop, then I tried the CG version of racer0.8.14, there's an error message before crashing back to desktop:

    Is it a bug, or it's just my old PC playing at me? :p

  4. Looks bad from here...a new pc isn't expensive anymore, for 400-600€ you got a good beast, I've build my system on my own...it's the best way to avoid getting f***** by pre-build computers which 99% of them, are composed of low cost components !

    Try 0.8.13.. (or some other 0.8s) as the newest one seems to be quite buggy for some people.

    Have a look around for a Racer release with Luthobu's optimised .ini, I think that they should work. If not, try 0.6.3 from here: http://www.tracciontrasera.es/modules.php?name=Downloads&d_op=viewdownload&cid=75

    And yeah. You need a new PC. My advise is build it yourself or try and get a motherboard bundle. Cheapest way. That's how I ended up with a computer that can run all the latest Racer versions and only cost me £210!
  6. Last one I made available was for 0.8.10.. not had time to update the links.
    But with some tweaking it should work for newer versions (not 0814) too.
  7. Still not working. I tried 0.6.3 today, once I started up racer.exe the window comes up but then a split-second later it disappeared :(
  8. try version 0.7.3
