    Woohoo!

    Decided to check the forums just to ask what is the best racing game currently available, and wasn't expecting to see UW2!

    ps: what platform does this require? I never upgraded from UT2K4.

    Hello Malibu Barbie, l o n g time since las t visit;P

    This demo requires no game since it is not a mod. It is a stand alone game created in the Unreal Development Kit.

    How do I start it?

    Yes. I miss unwheel. I recently bought a Logitech G27 racing wheel, and started to look for good racing games. I wonder how it compares with mouse steering? ;)

    Okay, found how to start it. Now, how do I set it for inverse mouse?

    :eek: :rolleyes: ;) :eek:

    I don't even know if you are serious. I have never been a coder, and without the work tegleg has done with UnWheel2, there would be no bot support, or checkpoints, or so many other things. But I know there is no option for inverse mouse.

    Not left to right, but up and down. On all games that use mouse there is the option, so I thought the runtime would have it built in. I'm dyslexic, so I always play games with inverse mouse. I tried to play this last night, and couldn't control the car since I was always looking all the way down or all the way up.

    Maybe there is a config file attached to the runtime engine?

    EDIT: Found it.

    On the main menu, hit the ' key to bring up the console, then type "invertmouse" without the quotes.

    I didn't finish reading your post, so I was looking for solutions;P

    Glad you solved it. What do you think?

    Btw, you can drive all the vehicles in the MenuMap, but only in that map. They are across the street.

    So far I'm enjoying it. I'm very rusty at it tho.

    Is the turbo bound to any keys? I haven't been able to use it. I used to have on mouse2, so I keep pressing it out of instinct I guess.

    The fuel truck is waaaaaaay too fast! :) Had some fun driving all the vehicles around. Even the bus.

    How do I select one of the other maps? I just get the menu map and flyaway infield.

    Sorry, it is just a demo, and we wanted to keep it small. Turbo is the space key. There is a list of key binds in one of the .txt file in the zip file.

    The trucks will not be in race maps;p

    It is the current version, but with only one map and 2 vehicles avaliable to race.

    But we have decided to release it all as a free game.

    Cool! I went looking for UnWheel to download (for old time's sake) but found this instead! Congratulations, Steven! Just played a race map and it's really cool. :)
