August 5 2008 - Rail Racer version 1.5 is here

This new update cleans up some bugs and removes the ability for the less scrupulous among us to cheat.
The online racing code has been tweaked as well, resulting in improved performance overall when racing your friends and enemies online.
Please note, the full version number is 1.53, and is required to race online, version 1.4 will no longer work for online play.
Also note that this upgrade will work only for the full version of the game, not the demo.
Grab the below zip file, be sure and go over the included read me file, as it contains important installation instructions.

Don't be shy about joining, all classes of racers are welcome from the newest racers to the most experienced and it is a good time for all with lots of tips and chat along the way.
See you on the track

Rail Racer version 1.4 is ready to roll

The new update includes the ability to purchase a nitro burner, which gives you ten seconds of acceleration boost.
The burner is turned on and off by pressing the b key.
To see how much burn time you have left, press either shift z or shift b.
The burner is a class 5 upgrade, and will be reset at the beginning of each race. You will not be able to refill the burner in the pits, so use your time wisely.
You can now check the altitude you took a jump with by pressing shift a.
This will tell you your altitude at the moment you either cleared a jump, or crashed into it.
This is very handy in determining how accurately you are taking the hurdles, and should help get those lap times down.
You can now change the voice speed in multi player chat mode by using the page up and down keys. This voice rate will be set independantly of the voice rate when racing.
You can now check damage in the chat room by typing /d followed by enter.
The way messages are reviewed is changed, now use the numPad 1 through 5 keys to review the last 5 messages sent.
Some other minor bugs have been fixed.
Lastly, you will now take damage at all difficulty levels when hitting a force field above 150 MPH, so no more ramming into them with nitros going full blast.
This update will be required to race online, so be sure and get it installed soon.
Just unzip the file to your Rail Racer folder and you will be good to go.
Here is the link:

Happy racing!

July 11 2007 - Rail Racer 1.3 is available

The new release cleans up a few minor problems with the code, allows players to race in MP mode without using up nitros from their inventory, and adjusts the keyboard sensitivity to make leaning more responsive.
Additionally, the server code has been tweaked, and you must have version 1.3 to race online.
After downloading the zip file, simply unzip it to your Rail Racer folder and you should be good to go.
If you are still running version 1.0, you may have to delete your config.xml file if the game fails to start, however try it without removing the config file, as it will start on some systems
Either way, be sure and backup your player settings in the options menu before installing this update.
