some small problems

Hi, i downloaded racer again after not using it for about a year or more and i noticed that some cars that worked fine back then have no engine sounds now, is this because they aren't compatible with the new version or something? how can i get them to work?
Also when i turn the HDR effect thingy off and start a race, it crashes.

Audio has been changed.
Racer no longer uses the "sample=engine.wav" thing, instead it has a more sophisticated mixing things for multiple sounds through different RPM ranges. What you can do to update to the new system is open car.ini in the car's folder, and paste this somewhere within it (I usually put it just before the camera views settings) - there is one thing you'll need to correct here, which is the "natural=3000" bit. Take the number from whatever "natural=XXXX" is in the car.ini file already, and it should sound the same.
