Formula XD 1.2.7 (sorry it's late)

It's long overdue, but I've finally been able to deliver another update to Formula XD. There are all kinds of small improvements in this one, so it's definitely recommended for all users. It also fixes some long-standing issues which will have affected some people more than others.

I should also apologise for the time it's taken to issue this update. In brief, my Macbook (on which I had developed the game from the very very beginning in 2012) suddenly decided that it would no longer boot Windows 7. There was no update that caused this, it just decided that backlit black screens were much more interesting than the Windows boot sequence. That even includes the W7 installation disc, so I was completely stuck.

In fact, I had to choose between abandoning my promises to keep Formula XD maintained with updates on one hand, and spending all of the revenue it had made hitherto (and more besides) on building a new PC so that I could carry on. Because I wanted to eventually build a PC anyway, I took the latter choice, and so, after finally getting something put together on time and under budget, I was able to return to making Formula XD updates.

I still hope to make a more ambitious expansion for it in 2019, and of course there is the promised Mac version, and that's still a matter of 'when', and not 'if'.

Thank you all very much for bearing with me in my first commercial endeavour - I remain, as ever, determined to make Formula XD one of the most entertaining racing team manager games out there.

Initial Launch and the First Updates

A big thank you to all those who've purchased my game! I'll not bore you with anecdotes of its production - suffice to say that it's been a long wait for those of you who've been following from the beginning.

I would like to extend a brief apology to those who have encountered bugs in this initial period; testing for the added Steam-specific features was more rushed than it should have been. I have been listening attentively for bug reports, and now with version 1.2.2, I believe that all the errors I've heard about are now addressed.

Please do let me know, either in a Community comment thread or by writing to nitroglycerinltd@yahoo.com, if you encounter any further issues.

Otherwise, I hope you can while away many a merry hour with this, my childhood ambition finally realised, my debut title Formula XD.

About This Game

Formula XD is a racing team strategy game that puts you in the role of manager - hiring drivers, negotiating contracts with sponsors and engine suppliers, and making the big decisions necessary to keep your team above water. You'll issue orders to your drivers when they go out onto the track, and be responsible for guiding them to victory or defeat.

You'll start at the back of the field and fight your way through a ten-season career, striving to win the Constructors' Championship title, or at least make it to the Wall of Fame. There'll be plenty of challenges along the way - not only will you be adjusting your drivers’ fuel and tyre strategy in response to ever-changing race circumstances, you’ll also have to deal with extreme weather, sabotage, stray animals, food poisoning, and even terrorism. Can you manage?

  • Racing circuits set all over the world
  • Loads of drivers, sponsors and engine suppliers
  • Bright, colourful aesthetics
