yes , you're right stagman, when i read that thread about the old Racer version on rsc back last year, and saw several pple had tried it unsuccessfully, i had a quick go and posted that in the thread.
(very basic version with really ugly buildings and pretty much no other scenery right? )
That probably indeed didn't contain a decent readme, as it was the first thing i ever
made. Didn't even have a website back then.
But i would advise you to get rid of that and get at least the current 0.5 one,
it's still very far from pretty
but a lot better than that first alpha version.
