Real World Racing Version Update 1.26 Released

May 27th, 2014

Version Update 1.26 for Real World Racing has been released, reflecting feedback and suggestion following the RWR:Z DLC release and sale.

Highlights are car and track randomization button and rear camera.
The full details below:

  • [Feature] Added the option to randomize car or track selection in the car/track selection menu
  • [Feature] It is now possible to shift the camera slightly behind the car, allowing to take a closer look at the challengers immediately behind you. This action has been bound to the key that was previously used only for car repositioning after a crash (backspace), which has now more conveniently been remapped to spacebar for newly created profiles.
  • [Feature - RWR:Z] Added a statistic detailing the number of zombies killed on the end race screen.
  • [Feature - RWR:Z] Added option within the config.ini file to disable blood effect in the track selection menu.
  • [Fix] Greatly reduced cars jittering during multiplayer races.

To disable the menu effect if you have the RWR:Z DLC installed, open the config.ini file found in the Real World Racing folder located within your User’s Documents folder with a text editor. Then add “disable_menu_blood = 1” (without quotes) just under the language setting.

I don't understand why there isn't many more people playing this true gem of a game!!

this game is solid fun, innovative in its approach, and IT'S NOT ARCADE.

that's right, the physics of the game are pretty much the contrary of an arcade game! you have to follow your trajectory, calibrate your overtakes, watch out for understeer/oversteer, etc.

I'd recommend this game to everybody out there, especially with the indiegala bundle.

BUY IT!!!

It looks really fun but even the junior league punches you in the stomach and takes your lunch money. They were using the same cars that I had in my garage but they were a lot faster. If you can't catch up thats it, you just cant catch up. It gets aggravating when you are at the rev limiter and still cant make up ground, No difficulty options, no driving aids of any sort its just what you see. To add to the aggravating the cars brake like they are using 4 drum brakes on 4 bald tires and the in game tips telling you drift here and there are best ignored because the drift slows you to a crawl. Going under bridges might have seemed really clever at first but in the game it can be a real headache as you lose sight of your car and when moving at speed that can be your doom easily.

Overall I was aggravated, there should have been more added to the game. Let me tune a car for speed/acc/handling or make the cpu cars as fast as the dealership says they are. I was passed by a car with 1 bar speed and 2 bars acceleration in my car that was floored on a straight away with 3 bars speed and acceleration....HUH? The cpus feel artificially fast but there is little that can be done other than memorize the track and make no mistakes, not even one! This game was a gift but I would not recommend it, its just to difficult for looking like a fun top down racing romp which it most certainly is not.

Very Fun Game. 9/10.
The Career mode is vey difficult, It demands patience but could be better if one could choose to avoid some challenges as they become very fustrating and boring.
Anyway I recomend it, Buy it!!!!!

I was very sceptic at first but having bought this on sale I thought I give it a shot.

At first I found it quite confusing to look at as the map details, while amazing, do tend to make you not being able to see your car that well.

However, this was amazingly easy to get used to. Soon I was able to look ahead a little of my car but steering correctly at the same time. What I found confusing at first turned out be now a feature for me I quite like as it adds to the difficulty of the game as you constantly have to re-check your position, then look ahead again, while trying not to run into any obstacles you occasionally find in narrowing lanes.

I find this game now very addictive.

- it looks great
- the steering is very nice (I use an XBOX controller)
- all cars you can drive handle differently
- you can power drift
- slipstream
- challenges in the licenses and the races along the way are great and difficult on places (nice)
- nice balance between frustration and fun ratio (it never gets to frustrating not to be fun as you always can see where you go wrong and can improve to be better next time)

This game is not for players who want to just race ignoring the environment and just get on with it as that way you will keep crashing into things.

You will need to get used to the feel of this game and then get used to each track. I find myself having to drive tracks several times before I know which corners cause me problems and what car is best for me to use in this race which in my humble opinion is a good thing and adds to the fun.

The only gripe I have is that you cannot switch cars when restarting a race but need to cancel out of the race before being able to try a different car. However, that is just my personal preference and not a deal breaker.

Great game 8/10

Graphics:
The screenshots don't do this game justice AT ALL! There is a 3D parallax type feel to the maps that give them a sense depth that I didn't expect.

Design:
The track designs are awesome and make for a good challenge. Seeing as its all lifted from sat imagery the scenery is realistic and fun to look at. The cars are all fictional adaptations of real cars.

Physics:
Up front I must mention that the physics are arcade style physics. At roughly 90mph you can give sudden and full lock steering and not plow into a barrier which is not true to real life. Right now I'm driving a FF car and haven't experienced any understeer; this troubles me. I haven't gotten too far into the game yet so that last comment does not apply to the drift mechanics. For arcade physics things feel pretty solid and good. Being the race sim junkie that I am, I would love to see a simulation mode. :D

Conclusion:
Stop thinking and just buy it.
