Richard Burns Rally is fun online!
« on: September 13, 2007, 04:55:06 pm »
Installed the game today, and also a " RBR Patch IV" from this link:
Link removed for now.
It will add lots of cars and stuff, also install an utility to play online.. anyone can host and join..
The utility will fire up the game and after youve done the SS you just close it to get back to desktop and see times
etc. Other cars are shown as ghost cars.
Had couple runs, it works pretty well and is good fun.. I so much hope that we could have run with
few of the SJ members.. Is the game still sold?
Heres a screenie of the online utility.

I have RBR but only ever tried it off-line. Incredible driving sim, bloody hard though, so I might look further at trying this out, Thanks for the link.  :raver:

Yeah ive had the game since it was released but never really played it much online before, its much more fun like that (and its a damn fine game as singleplayer already) :)

Anybody possibly interested in this game? I think it should be available here and there VERY cheap.

It's a long time since I've played that one. It's an old game but it still holds up well and is in my opinion still the best Rally game to date.

Finns and rallye......... :rivet: Hihi.

Great vids Jarkko, thanks!
I especially like those on screen announcements that 30miles have just been substracted from your airmail account. Very nice of them.

Well the time aint that good.. but it was fun and felt being on the edge all the time. :)
Ive started to learn a fast way around stages, means not going on high revs but low and keeping it smooth etc..
i remember someone saying that when you are really fast in RBR you wont appear as going fast but the times will show the truth.. :dunno:
