IMPORTANT NOTE BEFORE DOWNLOADING
Although this version is a 'stable' release, it's very old now (from 2003). The later beta's are quite ok and contain many more features that v0.5.0 hasn't (better graphics/collisions/controls/physics).
You are very much advised to just try one of the latest beta versions to get a good feel of where Racer is now; go to the beta download page..
After downloading, it may be useful to visit the How-To page to get an idea of where to go next.
You need a full installation version (select one out of the list below, preferably the first):
It seems Racer can run in Vista, under certain circumstances. I've only had Vista for 4 hours before I backed out to XP, so I couldn't really test; the VS2005 compiler wasn't compatible with Vista unless you install SP1, and SP1 contains a compiler bug, so not really a system you want for development.
To run Racer, try changing the display theme until it runs. Yes, it seems that makes a difference. ;-) No plans this year to go for Vista compatibility.
Don't forget! The beta versions are much better...
