I can notice i've never checked the 'off topic' subforum. Never read about GeneRacing before, but looking at this, including the qualifying and stuff, looks great. I've always wondered about how GR would be if only it had quali.

Hey Txizzle...nice to have you here.
Yes, i was moved to the "OT-Area" with my project and i´ve to accept this :) of course I would be happier if i got a main-headline on the startpage haha.

The qualifying stuff is one thing of many..... we´ve implimented it, following a user/driver-wish before 3 weeks on discord.
You are invited to join our discord: https://discord.gg/Xg4VeaA

And there you get the possibility to be an alpha-animal :p

A short overview of the current state:
- Steam integrated
- MacOS + Windows
- Qualifying Mode (Laps limited or time limited)
- Racing Mode
- full compatiblity to all GeneRally-Tracks (load your TRK-Track directly from Editor in GeneRacing)
- very extendable car physics, which is adjustable at Alpha-Phase over settings
- Steam Achievements
- Scoreboards for every track (Best laptime, average laptime, lap count)
- DriftMode possible (at the moment over carphysics-settings) but a special mode will follow
etc, etc, etc.... the list is long :)

Had a look at that youtube video (i'm the guy that liked it ;) ). Quite amusing. Where do i actually get the game to test? Requires downloads, or is it only played online?

There is a Discord server for GeneRacing with the discussion about all project.

And the game is available on Steam but it requires a key from Elharter.

Yes, Gzehoo is right. The easiest way is to come to the discord server to join the community.
At the moment every racer which is motivated to give feedback is welcome and invited to test the alpha - ill send you a key to access the game over steam.

We´ve reached the 45 players mark at the moment and decided to cut it at 100 players. first come, first serve.
Players with non active feedback over a cycle of 3 updates will be revoked to be fair in both directions.

Currently we finished a sprint (update-cycle) in approx. 2 weeks, which results in 2 updates a month.
So, the average possible feedback time results in 6 weeks for each user - a realistic timeslot.

If a main-stage of alpha (0.0.9) is reached, every existing alpha-user got the game for free for lifetime - thats the deal.

Hello Generally community friends...

I am closely monitoring this new 'gene-racing' project by Elharter. This will surely be what the generally community always wished for:
  • generally playabilty
    track compatability
    more cars on track
    network support
We have a person open for suggestions and ready to take note of the intersting features to be implemented. He is working hard on the project. I am seeing progress every day. I urge all the community who still play and love generally to follow and support this project. Hopefully one day we will all be racing online! :up:

I abstolutely love it! I remember how I found GeneRally like 15 years ago. And I'm not that active anymore, but damn, reading things like online support, more cars, day/night, how can I be NOT excited :D
Please keep up the beautiful work!

btw, is it possibly to be an alpha tester? or at least test one alpha at some point?
