The Game

You Can Press F1, F2 And F3 To Alter The View Of The Arena. F1 Is Close To Your Bike, F3 Gives A Slightly Higher And Further Out View.



Internet Play


The Internet Support In This Game Is Slightly Primative. You Will Need One Of The Following In Order To Play:

Either: A Direct Internet Connection To Your Pc With Your Own Ip Address

Or: Udp Port 29755 Forwarded To Your Machine From The Router

Also: If You're Behind An Web Proxy Server It Won't Work, Because Communication With The Master Game List Server Is Done Over Http.


Whenever You Start A Server, The Ip Address Of Your Server Is Published Online At The Master Server. Anyone Else With An Internet Connection Will Then Be Able To Join The Game.

If You're Playing In A Wan Type Environment, Where Your Game Server Doens't Have A World-Visible Ip, And Network Broadcasts Won't Work Either, It'll Take A Little More Work To Get A Game Running. For This, You Can Create A File Called "Customiplist.Txt" Which Contains A List Of Ip Addresses, One Per Line, Of Game Servers To Attempt To Connect To.

Other Features

Press F12 To Take A Screenshot. The Current Screen Image Will Be Written  To A .Jpg File With A Random Name. Writing The Image File May Take A Second Or Two, Depending On Processor Speed So Take Care If You Use It While Playing A Game, As You Won't Be Able To Control Your Bike While Taking A Screenshot.
