Dunno if any of y'all have ever heard of "GeneRally" before? It's a totally freeware racing game that has almost a cult following <G>. I've been hooked on this game ever since December 2002, and it's really a top-notch game for being freeware (as well as it's extremely small initial download size). The game will run on almost any PC (with DirectX v8.0 or higher installed), and had quite minimum system requirements -:)
Anyhow, here's a random player's quote about the game:
"GeneRally... It's got yer damage modeling, yer pitstops, yer racing season, yer ghost car, yer nice AI, and yer track editor. It's one megabyte, it's fun, it's free... so go get it!" - RRevved
Snag the game from here -> http://generally.rscsites.org
(only a ONE MEG DOWNLOAD!).
Discussion forum with more info, downloads, user creations, and tutorials for the game than any one single sane mind can handle can be found here -> http://forum.rscnet.org/forumdisplay.php?f=199
(LOTS of traffic on that message board).
